Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Discussion

Vman: I don't think that Young Pyromancer fits too well here TBH. I'm not playing as many instants/sorceries as one would think. And Descent of the Dragons definitely goes onto the maybeboard, thanks!

Hamster2558: Nephalia Academy protects me from opponents' discard effects, so it might have a place. But it can't preserve cards from my Wheel of Fortune effects, which is even more valuable to me. Onto the maybeboard it goes! ;)

Workman4137: If I wanted a counterspell that drew me a card, I'd probably go with Remand, Dream Fracture, or Arcane Denial. It's just not in the gameplan for this deck, though. And I'm afraid I don't have a good way of cheating out Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur at the moment...but he's been an allstar in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck! :)

Micocoulier: Ooh! Rites of Initiation is intriguing; I forgot that card even existed haha. I'll also consider Obelisk of Urd - it's an interesting idea since it's "free" with 6 Locusts out. Thank you for the comment! If you like the deck, +1s are appreciated ;)

That new demon is flat out amazing. Hes a somewhat fair Griselbrand and allows me to intuition for 3 reanimation targets targets and make my opponents pick thier poison of Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Protean Hulk, and big bad demon. Sidisi Reanimator is back baby!

Oh! Best hateful draw engine out there: Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

On a similar note to the comment above, Teferi's Puzzle Box will both fuel your army and frustrate your opponents.

I get a feeling based on how a deck for this commander would play out that Jace's Archivist, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Psychosis Crawler would be good cards for draw, and that Purphoros, God of the Forge would be good for the ETB triggers on the insects.

Nice composition, I especially like the creature choice.I am building a similar deck and can throw some ideas your way:I think the main drawback you have is card draw. You are going for Card quality instead, with tons of ways to search your library. However, if you don't draw any of those cards, or you don't draw enough lands you will starve before ramping up. Any of your creatures are good enough to dominate mid-game. You only need specific cards for lategame. It would be considerably easier to achieve the mid-game with ramping up mana and drawing cards.I would suggest switching out some copies of Time of Need, Weird Harvest and Congregation at Dawn for Explore and Harmonize. And perhaps 2 Elvish Harbinger for 2 Sakura-Tribe Elder.

Some further creatures to look at:

Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Aurelia, the Warleader, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Knollspine Dragon, Sepulchral Primordial, Ashen Rider, Bringer of the Blue Dawn, Craterhoof Behemoth, Hellkite Overlord, Pelakka Wurm, Razia, Boros Archangel, Thraximundar

If I had to pick cards other than land I think should go they would be Archetype of Imagination, Frost Titan, Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster unless you added some token doublers like Doubling Season, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and maybe Lorthos, the Tidemaker but I can see him working ok. Rishkar, Peema Renegade can just become a cheaper mana dork however if you keep him I like Avenger of Zendikar. I would also take out Worldspine Wurm you dont need multiple things that stop milling and you have Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre already. Leyline of Anticipation is cute but Alchemist's Refuge is better so if you want that affect more often change leyline into Crop Rotation. Sandwurm Convergence should go for the same reason as Hornet Queen&Hydra Broodmaster. Clash of Wills should be Spell Pierce dissalow is cool but with all the 1 and 2 drop counter spells just use those... Swan Song is another I forgot. Id also rather have a Pongify or Rapid Hybridization over Plummet every time.

Drain Power seems awesome... Until you realize that your opponents can just tap all their land in response and you get nothing.

The premiere targets are probably Griselbrand, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Sire Of Insanity and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Nicol Bolas is also a superb option if you're using Shallow Grave.
