Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Discussion

Liszt on What might be the "smallest" ...

2 days ago

Which creature seems to have a very high cmc/size ratio? Although it's not necessary to really precisely estimate the creatures size I think players with knowledge about the lore might have a better shot at this, hence this forum instead of general. My guess would be either Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur or Akroma, Angel of Wrath.

thegigibeast on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Ok, so as I saw a lot of people have already put up their impressions about the new cards being spoiled, but I just want to hop in the hype train and do the same ;) So here are the images of the cards and what I think about them:

Will this one replace Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge? Probably, but at the same time her ability is somewhat different. As stated before, she can't cheat big CMC spells, but I think the pros are enough to play her instead as de facto grixis storm commander. She can be used the turn she comes into play, and you can play any instant or sorcery from your graveyards back once per turn. I mean, this can be pretty powerful with rituals such as Dark Ritualor Cabal Ritual, but I think a mucktide deck can use it really better and play back High Tideor Bubbling Mucktwice. This is a pretty solid general, Tier 1

This is far less esciting for multiplayer commander, and I would say Tier 4/5. However, if you are playing Duel Commander, either MTGO or French, this will be a powerhouse in this format. This list is about multiplayer though, so not really good for us.

Meh... Maybe I am missing something, but this is not really exciting for us. Pretty voltron, and the clause that you can use the ability only once per turn during your turn makes it nothing but Tier 4 in my opinion. Maybe I am missing something but...

This is already a better vampire. With the tokens he creates, we could think about some stax builds, using the tokens as fodders or ways to break parity... There are some restrictions but... And he could be used as a finisher to pump your entire army after that, closing by combat after a lock. Tier 3

This one got me excited. I mean, I know it is a 4 mana commander, but there could be some ways to win on the spot. Many people have said it is a worst Necrotic Ooze in the command zone, but I would say it is more than that. This could be used to make a grixis nooze deck, or something similar, and I think it could be pretty good. We could use Mirror-Mad Phantasm with our commander to pitch the entire deck in the graveyard, Dread Returnsomething and win from there. I wont list the entire combo here but you guyz understand. I could also see something good by exiling a mana rock such as Gilded Lotusand having some fun with Paradox Engine. A lot of combos available, this as a lot of potential. Tier 2, at least 2.5

Not sure about this one, but he seems good for a control shell with a big reanimator package. Simply by being on the battlefield, he can let you dig a lot AND throw useless big creatures like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur(useless cause you wont cast them) into the graveyard, ready for reanimation. I think he could be better than The Scarab God, letting you dig better IMO. This as some potential, i would see Tier 2.5

High cost, nothing for combos, needs to connect with damage... Tier 5/4

Well, too slow to be an actual thing, but still has some great effects if it ever sticks around. Simply for that, Tier 4

I could see this used as a stax deck, forcing opponents to get rid of creatures, and if they dont have any, create fodders to break parity on stax effects. Small potential, better commanders available out there, but still a good Tier 3

The most competitive deck I would think about right now would be running some elves as mana dorks and many hatebears. The thing is... Why running this over Captain Sisay...? Still, I would say this is Tier 3

The best idea I had so far would be running this as an elfball commander to be able to fetch Umbral Mantleor Sword of the Parunsfrom the command zone. Easy Tier 3, even if better commanders for elfball in those colors are available (like Selvala, Explorer Returned).

Meh, I dont really like this one, I don't know what to say except he reminds me of Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist... Tier 4

Now, I don't know if you guyz are excited like me about this one, but I think it will end up pretty decent (At least Tier 2.5 for now). There are lots of good wizards that can abuse the ETB, like Archaeomancer to go infinite with High Tideand Snap, Snapcaster Mage, Dualcaster Mage + Demonic Tutorto get both Ghostly Flicker and Essence Fluxand go infinite from there, Venser, Shaper Savant to combo with Paradox Engine or to simply be a big Boomerang, Azami, Lady of Scrollsherself could be in the deck... Many ways to abuse, many combos available I am pretty sure. Abusing spells like Ghostly Flickerand Essence Flux seems pretty good with this too.

This one will end up decent. There are lots of brews actually with this guy, from extra turns to control to Approach of the Second Sun, and I am sure we will end up with something good. Tier 2.5 for now.

Well... This is my favorite one from the set, so I am biased for sure, but I see a lot of potential in this guy as a storm commander (Tier 1) that could also be used as a 5c artifacts combo commander. Generating free mana is super important for storm, and the fact that he can be cast from fast mana is simply nuts. We are not even obligated to play him as a 5c commander, we simply need to cast 5 mono-colored spells to generate 10 mana and continue storming, which is I think pretty strong. This one will end up being the most powerful (alongside with Kess) from the precons I think.

Thoughts? Those are my comments on the spoiled legends, but I would like to know what you guyz think about the placements I have done. I am pretty happy to see all those new cards. Probably not as a big impact as last year's commander decks, but some pretty powerful commanders for sure. Tagging you sonnet666.

Incoming are - Sheoldred, Whispering One and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. They've been ordered, but I'm not sure what they will be replacing.

@CaptSillva Except for Coax from the Blind Eternities (my playgroup uses sideboards for wishes so I just have a sideboard instead), all of these cards used to be in the deck. I took out the time counter removal because I think they fill the same role as tempo control cards, like Cyclonic Rift or Wash Out. Both kinds of cards help you to survive until your wipes drop, but the tempo cards are also good defensive options when you don't have a suspend up. I do have Timecrafting and Fury Charm in the deck, but I think they're just much more efficient and versatile options that the other time counter stuff. The reason I don't run Artisan of Kozilek or It That Betrays is because they are poor bombs to finish the game with alone. With the exception of Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Omniscience, which give huge resource advantages, I think that the best wipes which depend on other cards to set them up are not worth the slot. I have considered adding more eldrazi, and these would be on the top of the list, but it would be because I wanted a higher bomb-to-enabler ratio. Deep-Sea Kraken has the same problem. Yeah, it's value with Jhoira, but it's not going to win me the game alone and I have few other ways to help me win just by dealing damage. None of these are bad suggestions, and I'm glad that you made them. I have noticed that my deck lacks a lot of what seem to be Jhoira staples on Tappedout, and I'm happy to talk about why I chose to diverge.

Hey your deck popped up in my news feed!

I just recently built Kami of the Crescent Moon; and so far so good. It won its first multiplayer game; but got smoked against my buddy 1v1 (which I kind of expected). LINK. I hope you'll check it out and tell me what you think

I decided not to run some of the real evil stuff like Arcane Laboratory, Static Orb, Winter Orb, etc. But I am currently running Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and that's pretty f'n mean.

You'll become the target if you linger too long controlling the board. They'll turn against you! A long and painful death is when you're drawing a lot of cars and playing none of them lol...but... you can use Windfall and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth/Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to reset your graveyard->deck and outlast the enemy

Also Laboratory Maniac and all sorts of combos for the insta-kill. Cheers!

I think cutting some of the clunkier things like Temple of Deceit, Lord of the Accursed, Coat of Arms, Temple of the False God, Army of the Damned, Attrition, Whip of Erebos, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Phenax, God of Deception, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and maybe a few less lands? For fast mana and better packages with your commander. I also feel like your avg cmc is still a little high for two of the best colors in cEDH. Ad Nauseam is an amazing draw spell.

Fellwar Stone, Dimir Signet, Dark Ritual, Entomb, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Arcane Denial, Doomsday package maybe?, Lotus Petal, Intuition.

I'm by no means an expert, but I think the has way more potential to be a really strong reanimator deck over zombie tribal. This is just my two cents.

Daedalus19876 Yeah both good budget options but I would definitely choose Impact Tremors.

I'm very tempted to build similar in a grixis shell with Nekusar, the Mindrazer as the general for the black tutors and the Laboratory Maniac Tainted Pact win. Maybe with some reanimate and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and the new demon Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Not sure yet.
