Jalira, Master Polymorphist Discussion

Sweet deck love the idea of keep or kill! Very impressed with the budget too! Jalira, Master Polymorphist seems like too much value for you to pass up and within budget I think. Primal Growth also seems like a good fit. Quest for Pure Flame although not a perfect fit double and sometimes quad dammage is always fun espescialy when your hitting your opponent with their creature who is twice as strong when on your side... seems like a dramatic betrayal. Temur Ascendancy also feels like a must have for this one! Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall also seem like good includes instead of the brainstorm or Temur Runemark .
I'm sure you can get a copy of Mimic Vat for 50 cents and it would be adding insult to injury having your opponents creature come back turn after turn to beat them up.

Right on man, thxs. I actually had Springleaf Drum out for swapping but not sure why it didnt go in. I also do have Firemind's Foresight from the pre-con (I think it came out for an x-spell as I cant think of another reason it was swapped. My Jalira, Master Polymorphist deck has all my good blue token generaltors (as of few years ago) in it at the moment but I've been thinking of taking it apart. Since it's release (Mizzix pre-con) I've seen and pulled some pretty good cards for this deck, has there been any major upgrades you've made w/newer cards?

It was very useful and would love to hear more given the chance. I've got Mindswipe in there already but will get Syncopate in there swapped for something. I agree on the "hard counters" being used as opposed to the "singular" ones too (If I recall correctly I've got some common hard counters I could put in till get better ones). Having gotten back into commander I'll be posting my decks for card swaps/ideas.

Second crash328, Red could be fun for this.
I could see getting out of hand fast. Possibly
Iizuka the Ruthless
There's plenty of blue where you could possibly do something similiar with artifacts but I'd be curious what could be done with Jalira, Master Polymorphist with this theme. Maybe Thromok the Insatiable

I_TappedWrong, thanks for the thoughtful suggestions! I feel like Bazaar Trader would be better replaced by a cheap sac-outlet, since I'd need to have him out for a turn before using him, and can only use him once a turn, and would still have to find a way to steal the creature from my opponent initially before using him, which is what the sac-outlets in the deck are for. Willbreaker has always been a maybe for me. It seems super fragile, and would be a huge target. Most of the instants/sorceries in the deck steal stuff anyway, so his ability might be redundant, but there are definitely times when the ability would be very useful. I may test a few games with Willbreaker in the deck to see how it performs. Jalira, Master Polymorphist is a cool card, but paying three mana and tapping her to get the next creature from my deck onto the field doesn't really fit the theme that I'm going for. I like the fact that she's a sac-outlet, but I'm not crazy about the cost or the tapping.
My beef with Phyrexian Tower is that it either provides just one or two mana at the cost of sacrificing a creature and tapping it. I like my sac outlets to be reusable during the turn, in case I steal more than one creature. I might try to sub it in for something like Conjurer's Closet , since that card is kinda in the same boat as a once-a-turn deal, but I'm not entirely sold on its inclusion just yet.
Good idea to check out other decks designed to steal stuff. I took a great deal of inspiration from other steal-y decks and came to the current decklist. I'll be sure to scope out some other decks with similar properties to see if there are other places where I van trim the fat.
Thanks so much for the thoughtful suggestions!

Bazaar Trader you steal their creature tap this little guy and you keep it forever. Willbreaker and Jalira, Master Polymorphist . id also look at some Yasova Dragonclaw decks they might have some good blue/red cards you could possible use sense she is the threaten effect queen.
