Jenara, Asura of War Discussion

Hey friend! Love the deck, but it'll be wildly inconsistent if you're playing this in Standard. Red and Green-Black will just destroy you.

I'd recommend making this into a Commander/Brawl deck -- since you're more-or-less singleton already, you've got about half a Commander deck already built! I'd recommend somebody like Jenara, Asura of War or Rubinia Soulsinger, since those can be good "placeholder" commanders in your colors that will let you do anything you want with the other 99.

I notice you're pretty new on the site, so let me know if I just went way over your head there, but either way, best of luck with this sweet brew! (: cheers

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

As much as I like Cyclonic Rift, the problem I've found with reactive spells in Animar is that they don't fit easily into Animar's proactive game plan. I tried Cyclonic Rift out for a while but there were more times where I wished that it could target my own creatures than there were times that the opponent had a worthwhile target to use it on. In the end, I found that in most games I was more inclined to pump my mana into casting more creatures than leaving any up to use the Rift in a disruptive manner.

I actually felt happier when I ran Snap in that slot because it could bounce my own creatures to be recast, ramp me with Gaea's Cradle and was basically a free spell so it didn't mess with my tempo.

I only ran Snap back when I was playing more 1v1 matches though. I needed a way to slow down the beatings I took from commanders like Jenara, Asura of War. I think that Nature's Claim is the only instant removal card I would consider adding now, and that would be a meta call.

MindAblaze on EDH +1/+1 Counter Deck Help

My EDH cube has a +1/+1 counters theme running through it. Below are a list of the legends I use in it to push the cube in different directions.

Animar, Soul of Elements,

Marchesa, the Black Rose,

Ghave, Guru of Spores,

Kresh the Bloodbraided,

Edgar Markov,

The Mimeoplasm,

Jenara, Asura of War,

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan,

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest,

Thromok the Insatiable,

Olivia Voldaren,

Olivia, Mobilized for War,

Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch,

Elenda, the Dusk Rose, and

Vorel of the Hull Clade

It’s obviously supported with on-theme filler and not all the colors are represented here. White and green are probably the best places to get counters, and are slightly underrepresented in this list, but Voltron obviously fits into the +1/+1 counter theme well. Anyway, do what you will with this, and let me know if you have any questions.

You could go bant angels with Jenara, Asura of War as your commander. This gives you access to Empyrial Archangel who is just outright dumb with Avacyn, Angel of Hope. You also get card advantage which helps (selesnya is not known for card advantage).

You definitely want Scroll of Avacyn.

And if you want early game Angelic Page, Serra Avenger and Emancipation Angel might be good. Illusory Angel and Jenara, Asura of War if you want to splash blue. If you go smaller Angels Lyra Dawnbringer gets better too.

buckeyetron I know, I just didn't want to feel like I was taking attention away from this deck.

Spazik008 Prison-style, with Jenara, Asura of War mostly for the colors. Kismet and Winter Orb, supported by Garruk Wildspeaker, Armageddon, and relevant Borderposts. Fill out with some control like Counterspell and Hindering Light and get ready for hate. I'm a control player at heart.

  • Derevi, Empyrial Tactician is a nifty commander that allows you to bypass the command tax. Since you have a large number of evasive flying creatures, you can probably make good use of her ability.

  • Jenara, Asura of War is the only legendary Bant Angel, but I find her ability a tad dull.

  • Rubinia Soulsinger looks like a pretty fun commander to run. Having a sacrifice outlet with her would be a must, so when you want to untap her and trade up to a bigger target, you can eliminate the old.

  • Treva, the Renewer looks like an angelic dragon, so it has that going for it. I am not overly enchanted by its ability, but it is not terrible. The converted mana cost is a bit oppressively high though.
