Fractured Powerstone Discussion

+1 for Najeela any day!
If you want my opinion on building a competitive varient of najeela combo, tutorsa are the largest thing Lim-Dul's Vault is a personal favorite, yet is very powerful as well, and sees play in nearly every competitive EDH list with both colors.
Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress/Talisman of Dominance/Talisman of Indulgence/Talisman of Impulse/Talisman of Unity, Azorius Signet/Dimir Signet/Rakdos Signet/Gruul Signet/Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet/Golgari Signet/Simic Signet/Izzet Signet/Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Fractured Powerstone, Star Compass, Coldsteel Heart, Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond/Charcoal Diamond/Fire Diamond/Moss Diamond, and Guardian Idol are the two mana rocks I can remember, but all of the two mana rocks are great!
Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, and Arbor Elf are great 1 mana dorks used to ramp out your commander and win conditions faster.
A lot of the above is all I can remember from competitive EDH staples, but check out my primer Why Every Commander is Competitive for further information on building a competitive list!

Kindred Charge is a great way to pump out loads of damage to finish a game, and is sitting at around 1.45c right now, but this deck is aggro, so the first thing I would suggest is ramp and card draw!
Talisman of Dominance, Fellwar Stone and Mind Stone are additional "signets" the deck can run if you want, though Fractured Powerstone, Thought Vessel, Everflowing Chalice, Guardian Idol, Marble Diamond, Fire Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, and Prismatic Lens are other options as well.
Kindred Dominance can be a blowout in a boardstate you can't attack through, and has lead my Vampire deck to many a win, it is also not super expensive, at around 7 dollars, yet also isn't super cheap either, your call. Plague Wind costs more for nearly the same thing, but stops regeneration (if you see a lot of that where you play) and is only .50 cents.

Hey, I will show you some lists that are considered competitive, like:
The above lists are all tier 1 lists, made by incredibly talented deckbuilders.
If you want this list to truely stand, up the ramp and card draw.
Examples of good ramp on no budget are like the following:
These cards can give incredible speed to a deck, and I am sure you can understand why. The below cards are still competitive, plenty run in addition to the above cards:
Onto card draw, with out a budget:
The above a powerful card draw, you can get a gold-bordered Scroll Rack copy for a lot cheaper. Below similarly will be budget varients, that still see competitive play:

To elaborate a little bit since Monster here beat me to it - Trinket Mage seems like it would make sense on paper, but in practice it doesn't do enough - it's essentially a worse Fabricate, since it has fewer legal targets, and Fabricate is barely playable for us. The best things we could reasonable pull off Trinket Mage would be fast mana or Sensei's Divining Top (there are a few haterocks and eggs it could grab, but those aren't primary tutor targets). Ideally we want to be tutoring for cost reducers like Etherium Sculptor or the big mana engines like Krark-Clan Ironworks. While it's a good card, Trinket Mage just isn't quite versatile enough to grab what we need him to.
Chief Engineer has a similar problem, especially when you look at the extremely low creature density in the deck. In any given game you may see one, maybe two creatures that aren't Jhoira herself. Because we don't have the creature density to really abuse the convoke effect, it's just not worth the slot. Now if it said "Artifact spells you cast have Improvise" instead, then we'd be getting somewhere.
I too did not know that Fractured Powerstone existed.

betefico, as far as Trinket Mage goes, for our 3 CMC slots we want those to be mana reducers. Also our 1 or less CMC don't really have combos. I know we can get Mana Crypt and Mana Vault with Mage, but that is paying a lot of mana for those effects. We don't play enough creatures to make Chief Engineer worth it.
Totally didn't know that Fractured Powerstone existed. We'll look into it.

Curious: why did you choose to include Fractured Powerstone?

Ahahahaha NyeShnefDerp! I don't think I've paid attention to that flavor text before. That's pretty hilar.
vargaszm I don't think I need Fellwar Stone. I do like a -cost rock, but in mono-black it's pretty ok if my rocks only give colourless like Fractured Powerstone and Mind Stone. I guess Fellwar would be an upgrade to the weirdo-powerstone and would occasionally provide coloured mana. I'll see if I have a spare one in my collection.
