Jalira, Master Polymorphist Discussion
6 days ago
I had an idea which I wanted to share for a while. Let's face it; Pauper EDH isn't very popular. If anything, people avoid it due to the overwhelming amount of non-legendary Commons they can pick from to be their General. While it could be argued it breaches the spirit of Pauper, I think Uncommon Legendaries (Of the myriad of options we have, largely thanks to Dominaria and Masters sets) should be legal as Commanders for Pauper EDH. There's so much untapped potential in these creatures! Adeliz, the Cinder Wind could be incredibly good in Wizzet Tribal, Baird, Steward of Argive gives you what's essentially a white Propaganda, Bladewing the Risen could make Dragons interesting in Pauper again, Zada, Hedron Grinder is so much bigger than Valuetown she's practically the Value Capital of Value Country, Danitha Capashen, Paragon shows potential for mono-white Voltron, Grunn, the Lonely King has just as much if not more, Hallar, the Firefletcher could have interesting Synergy with Kicked spells, Ihsan's Shade which is an Uncommon thanks to Masters 25 might have potential, Iwamori of the Open Fist could do Legendary tribal better than Arvad the Cursed despite the Color identity, Jalira, Master Polymorphist could make for a great mono-blue Cascade deck, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" miiiight do something interesting, and Kwende, Pride of Femeref is another solid addition to the overwhelming amount of White commanders and acts like a slightly Nerfed Odric, Lunarch Marshal. And these are just the ones I thought were worth mentioning. I really want this idea to catch on, because Pauper EDH is struggling, and it saddens me.
Edit: I've been told that you can use any uncommon in Pauper Dragon Highlander. My input isn't nearly as useful anymore, but I would like to say that a lot of these have great potential for Pauper EDH nonetheless.

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.
- I'm not sure what Teferi, Temporal Archmage is doing here. Maybe it has some hidden purpose or broken combo I just don't see, but if that's not the case, I would cut that for Proteus Staff.
Scrolling through the comments, it seems like you want to avoid Felidar Guardian. I think this deck would make a great Eldrazi- Hey, wait, hear me out. Aminatou gives topdeck control. She can also blink things. Her ultimate is garbage. All in all, not bad. I think you could take a nice little polymorph route on this. I like free Eldrazi. You should too. Just look through these cards, and tell me what you think.
- Mass Polymorph
- Proteus Staff
- Riptide Shapeshifter
- Synthetic Destiny
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Emrakul, the Promised End
- Void Winnower
- It That Betrays
- Blightsteel Colossus
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:
- Noxious Gearhulk
- Meddling Mage, depending on your meta
- Champion of Wits
- Riverwise Augur
- Sawtooth Loon
- Bone Shredder
- Big Game Hunter
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- Lyev Skyknight
So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

I actually did address it, you only have 9 spells (only 6 of which will always counter) in your 99 that will actually trigger the draw effect from Baral. Not worth. So I think without increasing your number of counters it's not really worth it.
If you want to play a mono blue deck Azami, Lady of Scrolls wizards, Memnarch artifacts, Baral, Chief of Compliance/Talrand, Sky Summoner spells, Jalira, Master Polymorphist good stuff creatures, Mono Blue Merfolk, or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip Jace Tribal/Good stuff are all phenomenally fun decks that I think might be a bit more cohesive and you can play Kira in most of them. Just something to think about.

I won't be of much help since the only one you didn't mention that I can think of is Jalira, Master Polymorphist. Honestly though if this is the deck you want to build I would run Jalira, Master Polymorphist as the commander. It does limit you to mono-blue but there are a lot of giant sea creatures in blue so it should work rather well. You can use a combination of tokens you produce and theft effects to grab opponents stuff and turn it into your own things.
Plenty of good ideas and links to decks on that page.

Whoops my bad for not noticing you essentially answered my questions in an earlier comment, in which case I've constructed a list utilizing both Young Pyromancer and Jalira, Master Polymorphist in a combo/control shell that I call Pyro-Morphist Control. Is it optimized? Who knows. Any tips or upgrades are welcome.

personally, i would remove Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, as the deck seems to have little in the way of tokens, and it seems to be one of the few lifegain cards. as for add ins, i like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Thalia's Lancers as a legendary tutor. i used to play a bant list similar to this using Jalira, Master Polymorphist as my secret commander, and having every non-legendary as a bomb like Worldspine Wurm and Angel of Serenity, while playing as many low-cmc legendaries as possible.
