Jeskai Ascendancy Discussion
1 week ago
also, jeskai tempo usually involves a Jeskai Ascendancy or two, of which it got its name, so im confused as to why o dont see it
cosi's trickster just doesnt seem consistent enough here, i dont see it getting big very fast
id run 2 or 3 colonnade instead of just 1, since that card is usually the wincon in jeskai control lists and a 1 of wouldnt get drawn often enough
also 1 or 2 Counterflux in sideboard can help with storm decks and other blue decks
lastly, Sphinx's Revelation is one of the best cards in WU modern, id recommend a few of those mainboard as they are early game cantrips and late game game-enders
other than that not much else i can think of, looks decent for an early stage homebrew!

As Foretold + Lotus Bloom/Ancestral Vision/Wheel of Fate/etc
Mana Geyser + Reiterate + Lightning Bolt/Debt to the Deathless/Grapeshot/etc
Demand => Congregation at Dawn => Maelstrom Wanderer & Deadeye Navigator & Peregrine Drake
Don't forget Jeskai Ascendancy pumps your creatures and provides optional card advantage.

I'm working on a version and I found myself going off, then having to pass with a board full of pumped creatures wanting to make mana or smash face. Extra instances of haste have helped out a bunch. Samut, Voice of Dissent is a decent body for when things aren't going your way and feels better than having a 2nd Temur Ascendancy. I agree that granting haste is prioritized lower than Cryptolith Rite and Jeskai Ascendancy, but It's still how the deck goes off and wins in the same turn.
Also, Opt is an all-star in this deck! Give it a try over glimmer or something.

The problem is that your theme takes so many turns to achieve. You drop Assemble the Legion at turn 5 at best, and then it has to stack up counter and not be removed by your opponent during the coming turns.
If you want to keep Assemble the Legion as the main card in the deck, try to put it in a control shell. Chained to the Rocks is a nice 1 mana Journey to Nowhere in Boros Control, and you have access to a lot of board clear like Sweltering Suns and Fumigate. If you have more threats than creatures against you, or match up against control decks, consider going into blue for countermagic and card filtering (Supreme Will) to make sure you have the methods to stop your opponent's attempts to remove your wincons. Include cards like Detention Sphere and Oblivion Ring or Ghostly Prison to make sure you survive against all kinds of threats until you can develop your board. If you know what you usually play against, devote more slots in the deck to cards protecting against that kind of target. Jeskai Ascendancy could be a nice inclusion as well to make use of all the creatures you want to be generating in combination with your large amount of non-creature spells in this version. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is a huge finisher which could be an expensive but worthwhile 1-of.
If you want a faster deck with a token theme with things like Suture Priest, Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge, ditch Assemble the Legion. Try to incorporate a few anthems such as Honor of the Pure or Intangible Virtue, and look into including black as extra color, as it has a few ways to sacrifice your tokens for the greater cause (Viscera Seer), cards to make use of it (Twilight Drover, Blood Artist), and token generators (Lingering Souls). Remove all walls and cards that don't directly interact with or make tokens. Redundancy is key in fast decks, so you'll always have a threat in hand, not answers to things that are not threatening you yet.

It's neat to see someone else that had a similar idea as mine. Even as far as partner commanders go, Akiri and Kydele isn't a very common combination. Akiri & Kydele, Private Investigators (Budget ed.) if you want to check out my take on it.
If you're interested in another infinite combo, you can look into Staff of Domination. To be fair, it's rather pricey, and it's even more broken than the Umbral Mantle combo - it gives you unlimited card draw in addition to unlimited mana - so if money's an issue or your playgroup wouldn't appreciate that sort of thing, it's understandable.
Speaking of Umbral Mantle, Rogue's Passage (or other unblockable effects) lets you turn it into a lethal, unblockable swing in addition to infinite colorless mana.
Anyway, I do like the ideas here, and I may end up taking a few additions for my own version.

If you felt like it, you could make this RWGU and add in Jeskai Ascendancy and just use the G for cards like Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid. Could make the deck a little more consistent since it looks like you would have a hard time getting Paradise Mantle and Blistercoil Weird every game.
