Jhoira's Familiar Discussion
4 days ago
Hey jakeyuki12 thanks for the tips, really appreciate the insights, due to the long time between my playgroup being able to play I haven't used this in a group yet, just playtests on here so I'm sure it could use some tweaking. Might try to address some things just as I saw them when I was building it, but definitely let me know what you think.
Land count-yeah the land count is a little lower than most of my decks for sure, but I included other sources, maybe I'm relying on them too much? I do have Path of Mettle Flip which becomes a land with added bonuses, also cards like Seething Song and Soulbright Flamekin that can be used to ramp, the latter for 8 mana when I invest 3 mana with Zirda that can be used consistently (even on opponents' turns). As you mentioned I do have Sword of the Animist and Burnished Hart (which will definitely be awesome to crack for 1 mana!) I am also counting on cards like Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and Sun Titan to recur those cards and even lands like Naya Panorama or Ash Barrens with the Titan. I also have cost reducers in addition to Zirda like Jhoira's Familiar, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, and Ugin, the Ineffable that all help on a lot of my cards in the deck, lots of legendary creatures, artifacts, and equipment.
Card draw and ramp- always important for sure! I thought I had a good amount of rocks, time will tell if I'm right there, but I do have 1-2 more I could add if the rocks/other mana sources I have and my cost reducers aren't enough. Thanks for pointing out Mask of Memory that is a good one for sure! I have a couple card draw artifacts, creatures like Sram, Senior Edificer, (Ugin is a form of card draw too), a land, and one equipment in Rogue's Gloves that I can tutor for a couple of ways. I debated using Open the Armory but I have Steelshaper's Gift and I decided to go with Relic Seeker and because I could have a body to equip in a pinch and he could also be recurred with the methods stated above to tutor more than once. Sword of Fire and Ice is definitely out of my price range as awesome as it is. I've been on the other end of Smothering Tithe at too many tables to play it myself, it is helpful but as the name implies it's a little too salty for me to play.
Creatures that have synergy with the deck- Thanks for the suggestions, Puresteel Paladin is on my radar for sure, just a little pricey I agree. Fervent Champion is nice and inexpensive, so I might look into him but he doesn't add too much on his own besides being 1 mana and being able to equip to himself. I could be wrong, but I think Balan, Wandering Knight and Heavenly Blademaster have better effects/stats for this style of mass equip strategy and if I'm going to pile more equipment on one creature it would be them or Zirda to rack up commander damage.
Thanks again, just wanted to explain some of my choices and see what you thought!

If I may suggest some artifact synergy creatures, perhaps Foundry Inspector, Steel Overseer, Burnished Hart, Jhoira's Familiar, Myr Retriever, Etherium Sculptor, Palladium Myr, Myr Enforcer, Master of Etherium, Frogmite, Chief of the Foundry, Sylvok Replica, Esperzoa, and of course, Sol Ring, despite the fact that it's not a creature.

I think you could make some use from cost reducers so you aren't so reliant on Krark-Clan Ironworks. Helm of Awakening, Jhoira's Familiar, Foundry Inspector, Herald of Kozilek, and Etherium Sculptor are all fairly good.

well somehow my comment broke. that sucks. Recommend to remove: Voltaic Servant Sprite Noble Empyrean Eagle Golem's Heart Cathedral Membrane Heraldic Banner Journeyer's Kite One of the things you have that makes things enter tapped. Maybe. And some lands.
Recommend: Anthem(1-2 more of at most) Spear of Heliod Obelisk of Urd Leonin Sun Standard Stuff cost less Helm of Awakening Jhoira's Familiar Hatefull Diversionary Tactics Suppression Field Protec Retract Draw Slate of Ancestry Etherium Astrolabe Does Everything The Immortal Sun
