Flagellum on Do you like to draw cards?

3 days ago

I'm stuck between a Sol Ring and a Mountain ... I'm trying to decide if I should roll Jhoira (any version), Breya, or Sai ( Battered Golem + Banishing Knack + 0 drop or Sol Ring for infinite thopters with Sai/mana).

With Jhoira I'm going full cheerios but worry about sticking her. Having a deck built entirely on it's commander can be detrimental (like when Purphoros got countered enough to cost me 12+ mana to cast him >.<). Lab Man becomes a win con in that setup. I also include Reckless Fireweaver and Firebrand Archer just to help widdle everyone down as I'm drawing my deck.

With Breya you can sneeze and produce a combo but with 4 colors there are times where that is problematic. But with the right setup I have won on turn 3 with infinite (colored) mana.

Issue with Sai is Wincons. He is mostly value and there are some infinite combos to get mana/thopters but aside from turning thopters/artifacts sideways he is like an artifact version of Talrand. But at 2 cmc he can bite the dust a few times and still be fine.

Flagellum on My ROFL-Thopter go SAI SAI SAI SAI

Krark-Clan Ironworks is another Ashnod's Altar which couldn't hurt! Rhystic Study or Mystic Remora for more draw. All I could really think of to suggest unless you want to turn your critters into dragons with Day of the Dragons .

I'm trying to decide between Jhoira v2.0 (cheerios brand) or Sai. I'm just worried that any spot removal would basicaply stop Jhoira in her tracks. With Sai you can lose him a time or two but keep going. Downside is you lose out on red with Reckless Fireweaver / Firebrand Archer / Goblin Bombardment type effects.

Flagellum on Tokens of a Feather, spellsling together

1 week ago

Guttersnipe , Firebrand Archer , Electrostatic Field : all do passive damage as you play. Creature based isn't always the best but they are all recurable with Sun Titan though.

Purphoros, God of the Forge / Impact Tremors + Anointed Procession : with enough tokens being produced no sense in not running these

Martyr's Cause : is nice to use with a token strategy.

Anax and Cymede : pump your whole team and gives them trample.

Tenth District Legionnaire : scry's

Goblin Bombardment : for grins and giggles

So how has this rendition of Feather worked out? I like the cantrip/flicker with ETB aspect but still hesitant to go voltron as I've melted all my other commanders that were (Karlov/Rafiq maybe another 1 or 2 that I can't recall).

Kutsu- Thanks! Unfortunately, Firebrand Archer was in here in a previous build, but simply isn't as tough as either Thermo-Alchemist or Electrostatic Field . A x/3 offers some cushion on the field T2, and isn't enough of a threat to waste a bolt on, but won't die to Shock or Searing Blood . Furthermore, Alchemist offers an additional damage per turn, and allows Needle Drop to be first spell of the turn, if necessary.

As far as simply more pingers, this is a good option for budget casual play if you take out the Runaway Steam-Kin . There simply isn't room, otherwise.

Thanks again!

Firebrand Archer might work as extra copies of pingers (if you need more than 8 that is)

WalbenQuakeblade on Jhoira Vintage Commander

Changes 5/27/19

In- Flusterstorm , Mystic Remora , Windfall , Force of Negation , Urza, Lord High Artificer , Chain of Vapor , +1 Mountain ,

Out- Trophy Mage , Reckless Fireweaver , Firebrand Archer , Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Dack Fayden , Wheel of Fortune , Temple of the False God

Reasoning- I was looking into my list the other day and thinking about some staples in the cEDH community and was trying to find ways to fit them into my list. I was looking to see what I could cut when it finally dawned on me that I was only running 4 cards that were red that weren't my commander. Reckless Fireweaver and Firebrand Archer were easy cuts as they were redundant effects that only really made a difference when I was already winning in some other way. Wheel of Fortune got cut for Windfall which is both a positive and a negative. On the positive side it has potential to draw me more cards in some instances, however on the negative side it could also potentially draw me fewer cards. I would be running Timetwister though if I owned one. Dack Fayden was the hardest of the cards to cut. His effect has always been very good for me in the past but as it was the last red card in the deck I decided to remove him to make some room for more counter spells/interaction. So Dack, along with Fireweaver and Archer, became Flusterstorm , Force of Negation , and Chain of Vapor giving me more ways to interact with other peoples decks. Padeem, Consul of Innovation was an easy cut for Urza, Lord High Artificer as they both cost 4 mana, however Urza gives us much more utility as well as another win condition when we produce infinite mana. When looking through the deck I also realized that Trophy Mage only got us 5 different cards from the deck, all of which weren't super impressive. So I cut it in favor of Mystic Remora , why I wasn't already running Remora in a blue cEDH list I have no idea. Last card I cut was Temple of the False God in favor of a Mountain. I made this change because often times this list doesn't have many lands in play so drawing temple often was a dead card. With their only being 1 Mountain in the list it was an easy call to up that number to 2 just for a little bit more consistency. Though we cut all the red cards from the deck we still need red to cast Jhoira and we want to make sure we can always have her out as soon as possible.

Shock and Gut Shot would be nice to add, maybe a Firebrand Archer
