Jolrael, Empress of Beasts Discussion

From the listed commanders, I'd consider the following very interesting:

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts: Some neat shenanigans with Ezuri's Predation.

Basandra, Battle Seraph

Sol'kanar the Swamp King with Throne of Bone, Demon's Horn and Aetherflux Reservoir to abuse Bolas's Citadel. That one I actually like the best.

Just run Sisay, Weatherlight Captain as your commander, and you can have a legal commander deck you can play anywhere. The Genju is recursive, so once you tutor it up once, it's effectively the same as having it as your commander, since you wouldn't want to pay the command tax, instead returning it to your hand when it dies, anyway.

The other good thing about Sisay is you can tutor up Nissa, Vital Force , Nissa, Who Shakes the World , Nissa, Worldwaker , Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper , Titania, Protector of Argoth , Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , and Anthousa, Setessan Hero . All of that will add quite a bit of on-theme power to your plan.

So has no one realized how crazy this is?? Jolrael, Empress of Beasts and Slagstorm . This seems pretty awesome, and combo with something with creatures dying sounds pretty awesome!

Hey there, responding to your post on my page. Wanting to do mass land destruction? Well, first off, that makes you evil. But that's ok, if your playgroup doesn't hate you for it.

It looks like you're running most of the marquis land destruction spells that you can already, so can't add much to that (again, evil). I'm running Jolrael, Empress of Beasts in my build, and you can have a good time with her. If you've got an opponent casting a boardwipe, you can use her ability to animate that player's lands in response, causing them to wipe out their own lands (which makes it their own fault, and therefore you are not evil in that instance). Kamahl, Fist of Krosa can probably allow you to do some of the same things, too, just a bit more piecemeal.

Looks good to me (good, but evil).

I really don't like Akoum Firebird . It seems rather mana intensive to get it out of the graveyard for a 3/3 flyer. Multani is much better, and you're already running it. If you're looking for some more "land-matters" based punch, Scute Mob and Crash of Rhino Beetles are good ideas.

I run an Orcish Lumberjack in my build, and I just love it. Lots of ramp for the price of a forest I'll get back eventually, and it'll get you a Gitrog trigger, too.

Seeing that you're running Sylvan Awakening , you might give consideration to Jolrael, Empress of Beasts as well. It does a good job of making opponents a bit nervous about casting board wipes, or allow you to overwhelm an opponent to eliminate them. It's very flexible.

I love your inclusion of Ayula's Influence . Great synergy there.

I like it. I'd strongly consider finding a spot to run Jolrael, Empress of Beasts in the main board. It can be a great deterrent to opponent's board wipes.

I like the build you've got here. Lot's of good stuff.

You mentioned your sideboard for taking out land destruction. A cute deterrent you could consider running is Jolrael, Empress of Beasts . If you've got her on the battlefield, it should help someone else reconsider casting a board wipe...

Thanks multimedia

Appreciate the suggestions as this opened my eyes to re-tooling the manabase. This is the first commander deck I built and I made the mistake of never revisiting the manabase.

I think i'm going to go a little different route though and if you have any other thoughts on this strategy i'd love to hear them.

The plan is to increase the basics land count to 13-15 with a little extra focus on green. With those i'll add the green ramp/fixing staples of Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Farseek , and Explosive Vegetation .

In addition to the basics i'm planning to add the Battle lands for another shot of entering untapped.

Prairie Stream , Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh , Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista

I understand your point about cutting these guys:

Thorncaster Sliver , Ward Sliver - Easy cuts

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - Love holding a player hostage with the land destruction threat. Sad to see it go.

Might Sliver , Megantic Sliver - Think the explosive pump spells do a better job so i can cut them.

Don't think I can let go of Constricting Sliver , Fury Sliver , Pulmonic Sliver

And as for Homing Sliver , Venom Sliver , Striking Sliver i'll probably put them back in.

Wanted to point out that Star of Extinction + Spiteful Sliver is an instant win ;)
