Jinxed Ring Discussion

If you were looking for rings to finish of the set for the dwarves there are still Ring of Gix, Ring of Immortals, Ring of Ma'ruf, Ring of Renewal and Jinxed Ring. They arent all good but they can fill the spots in absolutely needed. (also +1 nice deck :D)

The IB deck is a lot of fun to play. I added Kusari-Gama thinking that it could work but I then found out through play testing that as soon as I sacrifice the creature, the equipment falls off and then damage is delt but I can still trigger it as long as Shared Animosity is pumping my creatures enough to board wipe.

But in my meta there are a lot of Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Rafiq of the Many, Captain Sisay. Just heavy counter/bounce magic, board wipes, and wheels. IB does kill at least one person in a 4 man pod but I die almost immediately afterwards. My board state (when I kill that one person) usually has Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin King/Goblin Warchief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Blood Moon, Mana Web, Price of Glory, and Shared Animosity. I am very much still pleased with the deck. Just giving feed back as to what types of meta it has a hard time with (if you don't already know).

I did have a huge favor to ask of you. I love death and taxes style decks. If you swing at me we both lose stuff but you will lose more. I run Shattergang Brothers and it can be mean. I just want a new deck that mimics death and taxes. I have my eyes set on Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, and Darien, King of Kjeldor. But a Daretti, Scrap Savant deck would be awesome! I know those decks are mono colored but I am not only wanting mono colors, it just happened like that.

I was also thinking that I want to do a artifact heavy, deals damage based off cards target player has in hand over or under a certain amount like...The Rack, Ankh of Mishra, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Jinxed Idol, Jinxed Ring, Mask of Intolerance, Thumbscrews, Scalding Tongs, Iron Maiden, Misers' Cage just to name a few hahaha, massive card draw. No real intent to win through combat damage but maybe taking an extra turn or mass artifact over run. I would like my commander to be someone who can consistantly put out artifacts and so I have picked Muzzio, Visionary Architect or Padeem, Consul of Innovation (unless you know of one better). I am sorry this comment is this long. Thank you for all the help...

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

FourDoughnut, it looks like Jinxed Ring errata'd so that it doesn't trigger on tokens hitting the graveyard. Still useful in the deck, just not in the way you're thinking and not nearly as powerful.

I had once theory-crafted a Darien deck that was more focused on combos than swarms and pumps. Looking here makes me want to bring that back and actualize it.

Blasting Station can do some wacky things for you. You can sacrifice a soldier to shoot yourself for one, which triggers Darien to make another soldier and untaps the Station. This loop is potentially handy. If you have any of the Soul Warden effects in play, it makes a closed loop. If you have multiples, you get infinite life. You can also abuse any other "enters the battlefield", "leaves the battlefield", or "dies" triggers, particularly things like Mentor of the Meek, Goldnight Commander, Cathars' Crusade, which already play into the swarm strategy anyway. With this loop, Altar of the Brood is a win-condition. Requiem Angel in the mix gives you infinite flying spirits.

I understand that this is mostly a footnote to your strategy, and that many playgroups do not encourage or allow infinite combos. I just like mentioning it because Darien gets really funky for a mono white commander. Also, Blasting Station is a fine card to have anyway just for the non-infinite synergies with your commander. Say an opponent tries to exile something you want to reanimate, or tries to Mind Control Darien, or just targets your things with removal, it's usually going to be worth it to net the soldier instead.

Also, sacrifice outlets let you go infinite in a few other ways: Reveillark, Karmic Guide, and a sac outlet lets you loop infinitely, as your can use Reveillark's LTB to grab Karmic Guide and another <2 power creature, then use Karmic Guide to grab Reveillark. Sun Titan (who I recommend you play anyway because he's so good) makes a loop with Fiend Hunter, as you can exile the Titan under the Hunter, then sac the Hunter to return the Titan, then use the Titan's ETB to return the Hunter. This lets you sac the Hunter infinite times, with, say, Blasting Station to win. Same thing also works with Gift of Immortality or Angelic Renewal and Sun Titan (sac the Titan, the enchantment returns him, he returns the enchantment).

In addition to Blasting Station, Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are worth playing even in the non-combo route for times when you need mana more than bodies. It's not a fringe situation to have Well of Lost Dreams, Ashnod's Altar, and Soul Warden and just turn your dudes into straight cards. Or just Mentor of the Meek and Ashnod's Altar. You can also do stuff like sac 10 soldiers to Ashnod's for (20), then Martial Coup for x = 20.

Altar of Dementia might seem like a weird choice, until you have 10 soldiers with +/+ from Dictate of Heliod or Cathars' Crusade and your opponent has Propaganda or plays Rakdos Charm or a board wipe.

Jinxed Idol and Jinxed Ring give you steady but bearable sources of damage to self when you don't want to rely on forcing opponents to attack you. Also, they provide an opportunity to sacrifice when needed, and can be a nuisance for opponents who can't get rid of it or use the damage as easily as you can.

Just some ideas.

Grid Monitor & Rust Elemental would be good. Maybe even Jinxed Idol and Jinxed Ring if you can get rid of the first prior to your next upkeep.
