Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Discussion

K4m4r0 on Screw your Cards - Gwendlyn di Corci

tlk_lone_knight wow those are a lot of suggestions, thanks!

Breathstealer's Crypt and Anvil of Bogardan Affect both player, I tried to avoid that but with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur this shouldn't be much of a drawback.

I didn't want to attack with creatures, although those are some nice cards, but the whole Deck had to be changed or atleast the creatures since I only run utility creatures. Neko-Te Hot Soup Sword of Feast and Famine

Illusionist's Bracers is already in the list but thanks anyways!

in regards to the Breathstealer's Crypt forcing a player to draw a card or them naturally drawing a card triggers the effect. They MUST reveal the card and if it is a creature they MUST pay 3 life or discard it. using Cephalid Looter would cause them to draw, reveal said drawn card, if a creature pay the life/discard, then discard a card from hand.

I was incorrect with Chains of Mephistopheles unfortunately it has not been reprinted and does cost around 400$ because i believe it sees legacy play

Instead of Jace's Archivist maybe playing Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would be better if you intend to be so low on cards. Huge card advantage but also a high CMC which is normally very doable in EDH.

Hey, two budget cards that are busted with Kruphix's ability to store mana or Tron are Blue Sun's Zenith and Genesis Wave.

Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying are all budget cards to tutor for the Tron lands.

Alchemist's Refuge lets you cast cards at instant speed with all the stored mana. Command Tower is one of the best lands for Commander.

Budget green staple Commander cards to consider:

Two drops that look good here are: Thrasios, Triton Hero use stored mana or Tron to draw cards. Kiora's Follower is ramp and can untap a Tron land or Doubling Cube.

As far as finishers it's pretty hard for your opponents to beat a fast Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

Fatespinner and Peacekeeper are two nice pillowfort cards (I say Fatespinner is pillowfort because with her, your opponents can choose to skip their combat to play cards or draw cards).

For some more control, you can consider Grand Abolisher and Angelic Arbiter, maybe Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, although he's a little on the expensive side of things.

For some combos, Leyline of the Void interacts very, very nicely with Helm of Obedience. There's also Energy Field + Rest in Peace to basically prevent you from taking damage until either one of the two enchantments are removed.

For an even longer term wincon, you can try out Omniscience followed by a Enter the Infinite. Draw and play the nonland cards of your library all in one turn.

Hey Kaslay, thanks for all your interest and suggestions.

I like Thalakos Deceiver and I will consider adding it now that it's close to budget, $6 is still high though. Deceiver was $15 after a buyout when Inalla was first released. You're right it's amazing with eminence also bounce. Not sure what to cut for it though as I need to cut a card that's the same or more price.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur was just reprinted in Iconic Masters it's price has dropped from $20 to $8! It will continue to drop as more product is opened. Consecrated Sphinx was also reprinted and it's currently at $13 which will most likely drop more. Although not currently budget I'm still keeping my eye on both of these cards. You're right Jin is an amazing reanimation target, Sphinx is too even though they're not Wizards.

Kaslay on Eminence Necromancers (Budget)

Happy to see you're still working on this deck. I've made a few significant edits from your list (mainly embracing Red a bit more) and I have a few card suggestions for you.

Anathemancer is a pick I made for my meta, and it hasn't ever been bad for me. Usually if I can reanimate him multiple times and Eminence him, his Unearth is great for finishing off the game.

Beguiler of Wills and Thalakos Deceiver are two of my huge bombs. Both of them get nasty with Eminence, allowing for immediate threat steals.

Diabolic Servitude is a bit "out there", but it has been awesome for me. Its a great way to grab back tech creatures for more usage. Just make sure you don't grab back any majorly important creatures. It replaced a Beacon of Unrest for me, and I've liked it a lot better.

Desolate Lighthouse and Geier Reach Sanitarium are good outlets for ditching cards if you find yourself looking for more. Being stapled onto lands is even better. They're also super cheap.

Herald’s Horn gives you practically free Eminence Triggers. It's not a mana rock, so it does nonbo with that Paradox Engine I put in to replace Intruder Alarm, but the draw chance and discount I find to be very worth it.

Devastation Tide over Evacuation because my mana rocks and enchantments are pretty cheap and I don't mind replaying them if I can bounce my opponents as well. I've gotten the Miracle once, and it pretty much won me the game on the spot.

Pulse of the Grid is a really underrated card, IMO. At worst it lets you bury a card and gives you a net zero, but if you're looking to rebuild your hand, this card quickly becomes a force.

And finally, even though I know you're building budget, nothing better than reanimating Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, AKA the reason my friends hate this deck. Drawing 7 is no joke.


Here's a link to my decklist if you want to see the direction I took with it. Thanks again for giving me the foundation to what has become one of my favorite decks!

Good call! I totally forgot about Mass Polymorph. The deck might need to run a couple more bombs like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur but haven't decided yet.

Thanks for the tip, I'll do some playtesting with it! :) IS the deck called Empire of the mind? I had a deck with a bunch more creatures like Mindleech Mass, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Wrexial, the Risen Deep but these were just too slow so added more removal instead and went with more lockdown like Iona, Shield of Emeria, I am considering Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur
