paulrafael7 If you Proteus Staff Fblthp with no other creatures in your library, you get you order your library however you want to and then draw two cards. The basic line from there is: draw Lion's Eye Diamond and Gitaxian Probe . Cast LED, cast Git Probe, crack LED with probe on the stack. Probe draws you Gush . You use the alternative cost on gush, and draw Frantic Search and Mana Crypt . Discard the lands you bounced for gush to draw two with FS, grabbing Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter . Assuming you still had three lands, you should still have UUU floating. Use crypt mana to play the scepter, use UU to use it to untap the Staff, use your final U and mana crypt to proteus staff Fblthp again. Grab two more mana rocks, probably Mox Opal and Mana Vault . Now you have enough mana rocks to produce infinite mana with the dramatic scepter combo, and Fblthp+Proteus Staff draws your deck. At this point, you can win in several ways, but the cleanest is looping Stroke of Genius

Hey man!

Before we get into this, I just want to say that if I sound like a know-it-all and a dick, it's toatally unintentional and I apologize for it. Also, I have never played Jeskai in EDH, so please take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

It's kind of hard to find a good Jeskai Commander that is based around creatures, so I think you have two options:

Of course, you could have both in your deck, and switch them around as the meta/playgroup changes, but it's best to choose one now. I'll provide options for both.

The ramp and land package wil be roughly the same, so I'll start with that. I use TCC's manabase template, but feel free to change it.



TCC's template for a manabase is this, but feel free to change it to fit your budget etc.

  • 3 OG Duals (Can be replaced by Check, Scry or Man lands)

  • 3 Shock

  • 3 Zend-Onslought Fetch (Can be replaced by Panoramas)

  • 15 total basics and utility (9/6 split)

  • 3 Filter Lands

  • 3 Pain Lands

  • 4 Any Colour Lands

  • 1 Tri Land

  • 3 Other Lands(more utility, duals, Lairs, etc)

Here's a deck that I drafted if you want Shu Yun, Silent Tempest as your commander. I left three slots for the cards already in your deck

Here's the draft deck if you want Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as your commanders

That ends my very long post. Feel free the change anything you want about the decks I made, as they are only a first draft.

Good Luck,

I've been running Doomsday as a backup line in an Oona, Queen of the Fae deck centered around Bolas's Citadel , and I just wanted to stop in to say 1) that this primer has been very helpful in refining my lines! And 2) that Jace. Wielder of Mysteries makes the piles so much easier to manage, since he's basically a Laboratory Maniac who counts as a +3 in the pile.

I've gotten into the habit of doing piles that are something along the lines of " Frantic Search / Night's Whisper , Pact of Negation , Jace. Wielder of Mysteries , recursion, blank card".

Polybius on The Meditation Plane | Dragonlord Ojutai EDH

VeloCity_isnt_DT: As long as the second casting of Approach is from my hand that would win me the game. Casting a cheaper copy with Kefnet would make it slightly easier to win, the only problem is having 12 mana available to win on the spot!

Kefnet is cool though, casting a Frantic Search for seems pretty sweet, especially with a Taigam, Ojutai Master on board too. The spellslinger shenanigans could get pretty crazy

Have you considered running "Blue Moon" along with mana maze, don't have to worry since playing mostly artifacts. Thus would enable you to control the board while assembling your combo and not really worry about interaction, depending upon your meta. I've honestly found that Scrap trawler is sometimes just a dead card, mostly situational. Also, cards like Frantic Search work very well in storm. Hope this helps.

AKBZ on War of the Spark EDH ...

I think they are playing it wrong. The idea is the deck should be midrange control like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Baral, Chief of Compliance or Rashmi, Eternities Crafter . The idea is you just play until the combo just shows up and play the control game until everyone is out of resources. The fact that you get double casts from Ponder and Preordain and Frantic Search is amazing. Personally, I am excited that we are getting something different. Feather, the Redeemed falls into the same category as “something new” and I can’t wait to see what comes out from that deck.
