man, that means so much to me. i worked so hard and spent countless hours building it without any help, tediously going through so many cards and for you to say that, and to see where im coming from. seriously its priceless. Its so nice to hear. also, thank you so much for listing some cards to look into. i have only one copy of Parallel Livesthat i was planning on using in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck. and as for Primal Vigor that is in my Daghatar the Adamant deck. i only have so many copies,i need to get more because seriously thats some good advice. Explorer's Scope was in here for awhile until i picked up the Sword of the Animist and i only have so much room for equipment. its always hard trying to figure out what cards to pull. if you have a chance to look at some of my other decks,i really appreciate your advice. thanks again, man.

I just wanna say that I love your list. I've been a fan of Mina and Dinn since I started playing magic and reading the lore. This looks like a powerful list that can plow through the more expensive decks that can't keep up. I do have some suggestions for cards I'm surprised you over looked, first and for most Parallel Lives or a Primal Vigor you have a fair amount of token generation and if elementals dying for omnath is your favourite combo maybe something like Mycloth could help with that. Adventuring Gear and Explorer's Scope can pump your boy's and help you ramp. Finally, it sucks that you bought a banned card but maybe you could substitute it with Baloth Woodcrasher it doesn't fetch a land but it's a cheap card and a similar body

Suns_Champion on Rivals of Ixalan reprints

1 month ago

I've heard some rumors of Aggravated Assault getting a reprint in RoI. I'm hoping there's some stock to this!

It's been revealed that it's getting a reprint in Explorers of Ixalan, but personally I'm hoping for a standard reprint as I have a casual Savage Ventmaw combo deck that would become modern legal if the reprint were to happen.

Now a question: What reprints do you want to see in Rivals? Maybe more tribal support or thematic things like Explorer's Scope or Expedition Map?

Clawsun73 on Kemba Kha artifact deck

Masterwork of Ingenuity for Herald of the Host. Masterwork of Ingenuity is any equipment on the battlefield for 1 mana. Herald is a cool card, but doesn't really fit the deck.

Explorer's Scope for Worn Powerstone. Worn powerstone is pretty bad...

Strata Scythe for Slagwurm Armor. This card seems insane since you are playing mono white.

Spear of Heliod for Infiltration Lens. Makes people not want to attack you if you have 3 mana open. You are trying to make sure your commander is not blocked, that makes this useless.

Stoneforge Masterwork for Accorder's Shield. You summon a lot of cats, this makes Kemba thicc.

Inventors' Fair for Plains. It's just good and there is no reason to have a plains rather than this. (I can trade you one)

Dispatch for Bandage. Don't see bandage being too useful. Dispatch is extremely cheap removal in this deck. (I can trade you this too)

Trailblazer's Boots for Kitesail. Basically unblockable, better than flying.

Golem-Skin Gauntlets for Ring of Thune. This gives more attack than Thune and costs basically the same. (2 play, 1 equip vs. 1 play, 2 equip)

Oblivion Ring for Hold the Gates.

Sandblast for Second Thoughts.

Swords to Plowshares for Aura Blast. Don't need Aura Blast and Erase.

Open the Vaults for Cobbled Wings. If someone casts Vandalblast, you don't automatically lose.

Skullclamp for Staff of Nin. Staff is too expensive mana wise for 1 extra card and 1 damage per turn. Skullclamp is much better draw.

Selfless Spirit for Gorgon's Head. Deathtouch isn't good on a voltron, seems not worth it.

Rogue's Passage for Plains if you don't already have it since you don't have lands listed.

Yeah, I realize you must have put a lot of thought into the deck too. Also, could you explain your reasoning behind Explorer's Scope over something like Expedition Map, that way you could tutor for your Nykthos or Valakut?

GardenGnome on Sram, Trash Heap of Victory

Finally decided to break down and update the list to reflect all the changes that have been made in the actual deck since it's inception and the new commander decks seemed like just the perfect time. As they say out with the old and in with the new.

What's in: Memory Jar, Alhammarret's Archive, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Helm of Awakening, Stone Calendar, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Ash Barrens, Buried Ruin

What's out: Sensei's Divining Top, Rogue's Gloves, Explorer's Scope, Sigarda's Aid, Cursed Totem, Gorgon's Head, PlainsX2

For the most part these changes are fairly self explanatory. Seeing as we are a deck that is completely committed to an "all in" strategy there's no point in denying ourselves any extra card draw or cost reduction. The deck is by far much less likely to run out of steam. The only ones that are a little more in the grey area would be the Ash Barrens over another plains and the Bloodforged Battle-Axe which you could sorta argue is a sidegrade to the Gorgon's Head.

What's out on the other hand I'm still on the fence about as a whole. After give or take a month or two of testing these bad boys were the biggest do nothings of the deck either being just some of the more lack luster of the equipments and Cursed Totem always feeling a turn too late to prevent them still getting some value out of their dorks. Sensei's Divining Top is the only one that I ever had any dilemma over and you could just swap out the Ash Barrens for it if you wanna be a cool kid.

Decks still a work in progress but it's coming together. Gonna test out Hammer of Nazahn at some point once I figure out how to make room for it.
