Pal00ka on Hail the Eldrazi

-2 lands and more mana rocks that are Fellwar Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Cluestone, Izzet Keyrune, Wayfarer's Bauble, Iron Myr, Silver Myr, etc. The main reason is the more mana rocks you can play T1-3 the better Saheeli's 2nd +1 will be when she hits the board.

I think focusing on outlets that make artifact tokens would be fun and have synergy with Saheeli. Recent sets have given options for treasure (Brass's Bounty), clues (Tamiyo's Journal), servos (Servo Schematic), and thopters (Pia and Kiran Nalaar). Adding in bounce/blink effects would let you keep the army growing.

A fun alternative win-con to ramping into a scary Eldrazi is transforming your token army. Day of the Dragons, Descent of the Dragons, and Dragonshift + Surge of Zeal/Burst of Speed allow a lethal strike out of pretty much nowhere.

More card draw too; Mind's Eye, Staff of Nin, Slate of Ancestry, Ichor Wellspring, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc. all get the job done in their own ways. Spell-based draw is good too; Jace's Ingenuity, Ponder, Telling Time, Faithless Looting etc.

Some cards that should also be considered: Trading Post, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Goblin Welder, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Solemn Simulacrum, Nevinyrral's Disk, Shimmer Myr, Feldon of the Third Path, and Hellkite Tyrant.

If you're running Vandalblast I would definitely recommend running Mycosynth Lattice AND Darksteel Forge

Still that's like 3 card slots for a very costly board wipe. Personally I'm surprised I don't see things like Kederekt Parasite, Tainted Strike, Barbed Shocker, Paradox Engine, Capsize, on your list, as they all synergize quite well. I would also recommend, tossing some of the Talismans & Signets despite being cheap for other more reliable mana ramping such as Darksteel Ingot Dimir Cluestone, Rakdos Cluestone, Izzet Cluestone (as they can all be sacrificed for a draw, and their Keyrune counterparts, as they can be turned into a chump blocker in a pinch if needed.

Isochron Scepter imprinting either Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual with a Paradox Engine on deck = Infinite Mana, for redundancy even with mana rocks out, Paradox Engine + Mana rocks, makes buyback spells VERY useful, as once you've got enough ramp Capsize = Infinite bounce, and there a few others that become arguably equally useful, such as Fanning the Flames, Lab Rats, Mind Games, Mind Peel, Reiterate, Whispers of the Muse, just to give you a few ideas. Evincar's Justice can be viable here too, although with Evincar's Justice you need to be mindful that it damages you and your creatures too.

Brush with Death essentially works like Tendrils of Agony if you take the Infinite Black mana route, naturally if it's countered you can't buy it back, BUT if you're wanting some redundancies for a storm / life steal win condition, it's there.

Leyline of the Void is a must add for any competitive Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck. With the wheel package you're essentially exiling everything your opponents are forced to discard. Toss in a Helm of Obedience = Player targeted, Instant kill activation.

Also, I would definitely recommend keeping Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, specifically to prevent the self-mill, AND Leyline of Anticipation, and adding Vedalken Orrery for redundancy. You can easily create a soft lock & turn it into a complete hard lock with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Knowledge Pool, and why more people aren't running Day's Undoing is a bit surprising, given the redundancy to prevent mill, especially if you've acquired the means to drop it at instant speed, even on your own turn, to kill a stack & end the turn.

Also, with proper ramping, Barbed Shocker is pretty amazing, especially since it doesn't need to deal combat damage to force the wheel, (any damage it deals will trigger it), just saying. Rogue's Passage is a pretty standard commander staple too.

Liliana's Caress, Megrim, Raiders' Wake are also all must haves. Especially since, Raiders' Wake, Barbed Shocker, Shocker, (unblocked) or a Robber Fly (if you can force them to block it), & a Rogue's Passage can win the game by themselves, if your Commander or an Underworld Dreams, Kederekt Parasite is out.

Hi! I came here from the MTG EDH COMMANDER Facebook group.

First thoughts: You have far, far too few lands, and it's marked as a Standard deck. Luckily, you have 11 slots left, which hopefully go to lands :)

As others said, I'd cut Izzet Keyrune and Izzet Cluestone. As a general principle, I would not run 3-drop mana rocks that only tap for a single mana, because they deny you the ability to make other early plays. The one exception I would make to that is Coalition Relic, because it gives you the ability to get a T4 Locust God.

I find that Coat of Arms is too much mana:if you want to cast a Wheel, then power boost, then swing for lethal out of nowhere - 8 mana is a LOT.

Similarly, I found Runehorn Hellkite and Psychosis Crawler to be too much mana for their effects.

Generally speaking, I'd focus more on "everyone discard, draw 7" effects than "discard, draw that many". The one big problem this deck has is, oddly enough, running out of cards in hand. If you lower your curve, and run chaining effects like Dream Halls or Paradox Engine (if you add more rocks), you can easily wheel 4-5 times in a single turn.

I know it's a bit expensive, but I really would suggest picking up a Wheel of Fortune for the deck. There's nothing like the original.

Also, you're missing the Kindred Discovery combo :)

And as I said in the FB post, this is my list if you want to compare notes:

Goblin Electromancer! Izzet Cluestone draws cards, which is always fun :)

I'd really focus on lowering your mana curve and decreasing your 1-ofs. Mind Stone is leagues ahead of Izzet Cluestone, Etherium Sculptor is fantastic, Vedalken Engineer isn't half bad, etc. I'd also add in some card draw (Thoughtcast), some untapped lands (Sunken Hollow, Choked Estuary, Drowned Catacomb, etc). That should solve a lot of your consistency issues.

AllhydeNoJekyll on Jhoira, Master of Suspense

I'm not entirely sure what theme you are going for, but I think some of your categoriesneed to be more focused towards a set of win-cons, and about half of each be able to functionwithout Jhoira explicitly.

  • I'm fairly certain Matt had said that the Chance Encounter with Frenetic Efreet doesn't work, but I'm not sure about that. Even if that's not the case, why this particular combo? I feel as if there are stronger ones to go in Jhoira

  • Usually people use Firemind's Foresight to search up specific win conditions, or powerful X cost cards. I'm not seeing a whole lot for you to search for in this matter.

  • On that note, I think you should be really careful about your optimism with suspending things with your commander. Average Case Scenario you will play her with five mana up, suspend one thing in response to someone immediately trying to kill her, or she won't hit at all due to counterspells. A lot of your spells take for granted the fact that she will always be on the field like an enchantment you start with (see your draw category). Our meta usually consists of heavy boardWipes and consistent counterspells you can thank your boyfriend and Luke for that.

|Cards that must be cut|These are cards that are bad enough they shouldn't be in the deck at all or they have an equivalent card that is also on theme. - For example, there are a wide array of counterspells that are infinitely better/cheaper than Cancel, but Delay is one mana less and lets you control the board in your favor while being incredibly on theme (Delay a Board Wipe and remove the suspend counters, or add more as you need, etc other uses). In any case there are a wide variety of cards that should replace Cancel. Eg., 'strictly better Dissolve, Dissipate, Disallow, Izzet Charm etc.

- Thirst- Izzet Cluestone- Reduce to Dreams- Divination- Nevinyrral's Disk    - I've sort of brought my grade for this card down a little bit in recent times, the fact      that it can't save you on a draw really hurts the card and the purpose of boardWipes.       Still a great card, but not as powerful in decks that aren't focused on recurring       artifacts.
  • You have Mana Geyser listed under Ramp, when really this effect is called a 'Ritual', named for the card Dark Ritual. Besides semantics, it's a great card, but shouldn't be considered when determining how much Ramp you have in the deck. Without it, 8-9 should be more than enough anyways. As a side note, consider Reiterate, it can go infinite with Mana Geyser.

  • You have several components to Mill Combos, which is a set of great of powerful effects, but to devote to the strategy itself of mill would require a subset of 15-30 cards in that nature. Unless that is your desire, it would be best to remove non-combo pieces such as Fraying Sanity.

  • Sphinx of the Final Word is not a counterspell, but is under the category of 'counters'.

|Cards I do not understand the purpose of, but are neat|- Sphinx of the Final Word- Clone Legion- Control Magic- Eternal Dominion- Telepathy

Roilmage's Trick - Not a very efficient spell, even with the draw. Giving creatures -2/0 for a turn at 4 mana can be better.

Terrarion/Meteorite - Either of these can be cheaper rocks. I'd add Izzet Signet and Fellwar Stone, or Izzet Cluestone if you need the draw.

Pendulum of Patterns - The 3 life isn't amazing, but if you're playing blue the 5 mana to draw one card is just bad. Implement of Examination at 4 mana to draw 2 cards is also not good. You still have cards like Windfall and Reforge the Soul you can add. Even a simple Divination is 2 cards for only 3 mana.

Vessel of Paramnesia/Fleeting Memories - The mill doesn't really seem to do much for you so the cost of drawing a card is too high.

Impact Tremors gives you another wincon. Murder of Crows out with your commander and Goblin Bombardment draws your whole deck.
