Jeskai Ascendancy Discussion

KongMing on Fastest Gun in the East

Heya! Nice Narset deck. I run Narset too; let me make a couple suggestions.

You don’t have a lot of protection against sacrifice, which means Narset can be taken out by something as simple as Fleshbag Marauder. How about mass token generation, like Assemble the Legion or Storm Herd? To be honest I run Dragon Fodder and other low-cost token generators to get bodies on the board early game.

A trick I learned to make Narset deadlier late-game: Use your graveyard to filter out and exile lands, and then shuffle it back into your library. This strategy means you can increase your chances of not whiffing with Narset, and hit the same spell multiple times in a single game.

Perpetual Timepiece is a great example of this. You can filter cards from your library into your grave and reshuffle the noncreature spells only back into your library. It helps if you make use of the abundant Draw, Discard triggers in Jeskai, like Jeskai Ascendancy. To top it off, you can pack Delve spells like Treasure Hunt to exile lands out of your graveyard.

I usually have no problems hitting all 5 colors by turn 5, but thats a bit slow against some decks. Turn 4 is fairly frequent. The fastest I've had this deck go off was turn 3 Time Stretch comboing out before anyone else gets a turn.

Your suggestions are good ones. Jeskai Ascendancy is an all star card, and running Paradox Engine never really occurred to me. I was actually going to use Future Sight and Precognition Field, but I cut them really early on, before the deck really took shape. I should reconsider them and the magus.

On a side note, I'm considering running Enter the Infinite. It has its potential downsides, though.

Thanks for the suggestions. First, my main win con is usually combat damage with a bit of jank thrown in. I use a lot of my spells to keep the board small, but I've avoided running actual board wipes. Its a personal preference thing.

Second, Kiora, Master of the Depths does some self mill, which might not make any sense, but with the cards i'm running for recursion it can actually work out. Cultivator's Caravan can become a 5/5 creature, and that means it interacts with kiora and Jeskai Ascendancy.

Third, Docent of Perfection  Flip was getting cut already. I put Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh in its place.

So, yeah, I guess it is a spells deck with creatures. I'm still working on the mana base, but its been low on my priority list. Any big changes means reevaluating a bunch of other cards, and probably making exactly the cuts you've suggested. I really need to do some live testing first.

anonymousguy44 on Narset Focusing Tokens for Fun

More token producers would be good, especially on a stick. Cards like Monastery Mentor do double duty as a chump blocker and a token producer to help you get going in the early game. Jeskai Ascendancy could help you find your early threats as well as pump Narset or untap her after an attack.

SirSh4ggy thanks for all of those suggestions. As you mentioned its not a pure focused storm deck, but a combo-storm. The main plan is a combo: Jeskai Ascendancy, cast Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and make it letal or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa, attack, and post-blokers make it /; or again Natural Affinity / (preferably)Sylvan Awakening and make them big enough (there I dont necessarily need jeskay), after and/or otherwise, I'll star the storm part with Grapeshot and eventually support with Mizzix's Mastery. I'll keep Aetherflux Reservoir and Mind's Desire in check especially reservoir, I play in 1vs1 but in a very competitive and aggressive meta. Rude Awakening was replaced by Sylvan Awakening, is already too high to pay.

Hello guys, I'm looking for suggestion on how to improve my

Coming of the storm

Commander / EDH DVLuca

SCORE: 1 | 499 VIEWS

Clockspinning in the maybeboard is an ex-main card, it was an altarnative to storm with Jeskai Ascendancy in combat-fase post blokers and exploit Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa's ability anyway, it do great things with any kind of counter, and eventually dig until....Grapeshot!!. The others are more to remind me of their existence for eventually future developments. I hope you will enjoy the list. Thanks to everyone

luther on Enchantress-esque cards for artifacts

2 months ago

So, I am sitting here staring at the beautiful art for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and it hits me... an equipment "enchantress" deck for edh.

There is of course Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, as well as Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer and Vedalken Archmage that act as perfect "enchantresses".

Along with those there are some looting effects that could work in Riddlesmith and Jeskai Ascendancy as well.

My main questions are, are there any similar effects that I am missing, and Who should be my commander for this beast?

So many comments! Thank you for your thoughts and insights.

I will work them into the next update. Some more specific comments:

  • Icbrgr I These rebound spells are cheap and target twice, but are not really impactful enough. After I have deployed some heroes I can afford to pay more if the benefits are worth it. Same for the ordeals. Probably still better then some of the spells I use currently.

  • cdkime Progenitus and Karona, False God are just not where I want to be. The others have to be better then the slivers, what I doubt honestly, even with 2 more cardslots. Still worth some testing.

  • enpc I could go for a more 'streamlined' build, but would have to reduce the number of heroes by a lot. I don't think I want to be more all in, even if Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and Jeskai Ascendancy sounds pretty sweet. In 1v1 commander I would be 100% on your side. It just would be a different deck concept. Manabase will be updated, even though I will personally aquire those lands slowly over time.

  • PurpleGame0 worth testing I think. Thank you.

I will work and come up with a second iteration. Probably done by thursday.
