Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Discussion

HotShot14 on Inala, Wizard Silliness

Hey dude, was browsing and thought I could offer some advice,

If you want to go with rage inducing and control I would encourage you to take out the tribal themed anthem affects. since tool box and control are not usually associated with manualy building a huge army and then beating face. Instead, I would take out the cards like Door of Destinies, Vanquisher's Banner, and Metallic Mimic and win through combo.

I would also recommend taking out some of those huge board wipe cards because they are so expensive. Instead, use cards like Damnation or Toxic Deluge. Or, if you like the reanimate type card, use Reanimate (which btw I think is one of the most rage inducing inalla builds because you can cheat out huge creatures super early on in the game like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

Also, if you are going control you need a ton more counter spells like Swan Song, Dispel, Negate, Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, and Counterspell. Nothing is worse than using all your mana to cast a 5 cost or more spell to have it countered lol.

If you want to be a real dick, throw in one Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. Reduce that hand size to NOTHING then make them hurt by playing Sign in Blood. It does say "Target player" after all.

Mesmeric Orb can hinder you, but will open up your opponent's decks so that you may use their creatures. As for Buried Alive, I now see you don't have the best of targets. I was thinking just your biggest creatures for reanimation targets, but Gravecrawler and Grave Titan are good.

If later your budget permits it, I would say Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Glen Elendra Archmage, and/or Sheoldred, Whispering One. This package offers some control and versatility. They become zombies with your general which is awesome!

Also check out Training Grounds! That card would make your Commander bonkers.

The deck seems super fun, I'd just suggest to trying to add as soon as possible Kruphix, God of Horizons and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur: this deck would really benefit from them in order to close out the game (I get that probably you were going for a low budget).

Since you ramp a lot, I'd suggest other X spells that can draw you lots of cards, thus allowing for a more easily achievable 21/21 Tishana, Voice of Thunder: Braingeyser and Blue Sun's Zenith.

Another good fog card that I see you are not running is Spore Frog: it's really political, can go off at instant speed, though your foes will know that's coming.

At last, I'd consider adding other cards that make your commander unblockable (thus making your win con more reliable): Whispersilk Cloak and Aqueous Form.

First off if I may. Sweet idea. second off there are many different routes that you can take the deck. keeping in mind that you want this to be fun and not competitive is cool. If I may recommend some cards. for one Wizards are awesome at copying spells. Also returning them to the hand. A card called Past in Flames is also a card that will allow you to use the "past spells" to the current turn. Also Mizzix of the Izmagnus is an sweet card to add in yes he wont be a commander but if you add in a small reanimation package it can be doable. The experience counters don't go away so even if he dies you can get him back. Also Dream Halls and Sqee, Goblin Nabob "For some reason this card is not in the data base, I assure you it is a real card" is awesome not only for you but it allows everyone to play spells for a discard effect and most people will and can get greedy. Also feeds your other discard effects. Your over all cmc is just to high for my taste. I think depending on the budget you can go more big bad grixis creatures. Such as Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur If you happen to use the reanimation package that will feed everything. The most common reanimation spells include. Buried Alive Reanimate Dance of the Dead Necromancy and there are others but that's a good starting point. Also all this advice is just that you don't need to do any of these. Hope this helps and gl deck building.

Thank you for the recommendations! I'm definitely going to apply some of them, but not all of them, and I'd like to explain why: There are a few cards that you suggested I cut, that work sort of well but are not ideal, like Kiora, Master of the Depths Stormtide Leviathan, and Early Harvest, and they're in there because I actually own them. My collection isn't super big, and his is even smaller, so I was happy that I found any cards that I didn't have to buy. I had Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur on the list earlier, and I had considered Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as well, but I want this deck to be fun to play against as well, and playing either of those cards makes you a HUGE target and are pretty miserable for everyone else when they come down.

Okay I'm here! Sorry it took so long; my comment deleted somehow!

Here's a good list of resources I use if you're new to the format:

EDHREC.com look up your commander and get hundreds of the most popular cards for him!

MTG ASSIST.com look up cards and find similar ones!

The Command Zone #199 Staple cards

The Command Zone #151 Deck template maybe watch this first; very helpful!

So You need a bunch of cuts, I'd start with looking at:

  • Allosaurus Rider
  • Caller of the Pack
  • Garruk's Horde
  • Hornet Queen
  • Inkwell Leviathan
  • Nezahal, Primal Tide
  • Pelakka Wurm
  • Ranging Raptors
  • Ripjaw Raptor
  • Scavenging Ooze
  • Scute Mob
  • Simic Sky Swallower
  • Stormtide Leviathan
  • Thragtusk
  • Ulvenwald Hydra
  • Hunt the Weak
  • Primal Surge
  • Hadana's Climb
  • Sandwurm Convergence
  • Venser's Journal
  • Kiora, Master of the Depths
  • Early Harvest
  • Swell of Growth

Not saying throw them all at, but consider cutting and replacing :)

Now, I think Kruphix boils down to two things: Making mana, and using mana. With that in mind, here are some suggestions. Consider what your budget allows.

Making Mana: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Doubling Cube, Plasm Capture, Seedborn Muse, Kiora's Follower, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Deadeye Navigator(some infinite combos with this guy, ask if interested), Weaver of Currents, Everflowing Chalice, Frontier Siege etc.

Using mana: Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, Curse of the Swine, Altered Ego, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Thrasios, Triton Hero, some Eldrazi beasties if you have the money, Genesis Wave, Braingeyser, Enter the Infinite, Gelatinous Genesis, Expropriate, Planar Bridge, Nissa, Steward of Elements, and finally, Helix Pinnacle as a fun win-condition.

That's my $0.02! Hope some if this helps!

Omnes_Spiritus on Phyrexian Plague

These are my suggestions on what cards to cut. Feel free to agree or disagree:

Hanna, Ship's Navigator

Tezzeret the Seeker

Mechanized Production

Most artifacts in the deck are not worth tutoring/reproducing. In the case of Tezzeret, your mana rocks should be on the field to cast him, not the other way around. The ship's navigator is slow and is better replaced by high greater utility graveyard effects such as Regrowth. You will never win with Mechanized Production and there are both better copy effects out there and no need to use them in this deck. Norn's Annex, Contagion Engine and Contagion Clasp are the only reasonable target in the deck. Mana rocks are better off having more variants of the same thing then this card, Tangle Wire will screw you over, and it doesn't interact with Darksteel Reactor.

Spread the Sickness - Too much cost for the Splice onto Arcane effect. You're better off with 2 separate cards.Hindering Light - If you need to remove a counterspell pick this one. Its niche and heavy on devotion.
Deepglow Skate - This card is in the same realm as proliferate, but on the opposite end of the spectrum. It wants a narrow focus whereas proliferate wants a wide effect (ex. Avenger of Zendikar vs. Master Biomancer).Thrummingbird - A unreliable low impact card. You would need to cast this as a sorcery speed, pass your turn, protect it from 100% damage because it is a 1/1, attack with it and have that attack resolve hitting the opponent directly.
Kor Haven - This card does not give colored mana in a 4-color deck where mana fixing is very important. If you are planning for the paid effect I would suggest Maze of Ith instead.
Thassa, God of the SeaRestoration Angel

These two cards don't interact with your deck. For Thassa, God of the Sea refer to the above Geier Reach Sanitarium and for Restoration Angel you need strong ETB triggers.

Debtors' Knell - This is a 7 costing card. The objective of the deck is to cheat out a biggy by T3,4,5. At this turn, you should either be hard casting the creature or refreshing your hand for another reanimate combo.Noxious Revival - EDH is a slower format and therefore rewards higher impact effects. This card gives you one card after one turn. In contrast, you could be running a more impactful card like Seasons Past. It can give you 10 cards for cost 5.Time Warp - Taking extra turns is cool, but it doesn't fit with the playstyle of your deck. You don't ramp hard enough to gain benefit from its effect and it has negative synergies with cards such as Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. At worst it is Explore and at best Atraxa, Praetors' Voice gets to proliferate twice.
