Journeyer's Kite Discussion
3 weeks ago
You're right. If I wanted to support the tribal, Zirilan would be the better choice. However, in this build my goal is to showcase Kurkesh's abilities as a supportive commander a little bit more.
Often the dragons are enough to win a game but after a board wipe or two, even they can have a hard time recovering.
So with Kurkesh, I can get a better use out of my several specific artifacts:
Sensei's Divining Top = 1R: Draw a card.
Codex Shredder = 6R: Return target card from your graveyard to your hand.
Commander's Sphere = R: Draw two cards.
Tamiyo's Journal = Tutor for two cards instead of one, draw to cards of a clue.
Lux Cannon = Put two counters on the card, eventually destroy two permaments.
Journeyer's Kite = Search for two instead of one basic land.
Burnished Hart = Put four instead of two basic lands on the battlefield
Mimic Vat = Create two copies of the imprinted creature card.
and so on.

I love Kambal, and I love the deck idea. I run Atraxa Stax so I'm a big fan, but your mana base needs a bit of revision. I'd cut some lands out like Dpooser said, and I'd add some more mana rocks, like Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone, even Fellwar Stone because it's 2 mana. If you're tired of just mana rocks, I'd recommend Journeyer's Kite, which is a new favorite of mine, even if it is a bit slow. Erebos, God of the Dead prevents your opponents from gaining life back, and is a neat card draw engine, but you have a lot of nice card draw enchantments too. With some of those extra land slots, some hard removal for cheap could also work. Go for the Throat and Murderous Cut are good options. Just some tips from a fellow stax player, great deck outside of the land base!

Rite of the Raging Storm can help lower life totals.
Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Cathartic Reunion, Staff of Nin, Loreseeker's Stone and Daretti, Scrap Savant. These are all card draw, and red generally needs all the help it can get. Bonus to Staff, Daretti and Stone for being repeatable. Plus, Staff pings. Daretti also does all the artifact goofiness, which generally gets you some value, even if you don't primarily use artifacts.
Blasphemous Act is one of red's best sweepers. It always does work for me.
Cascading Cataracts and Darksteel Citadel are great in decks that destroy lands.

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).
Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!

You're playing a really heavy number of lands here with no way to thin, and limited draw power. At this point i'd go down one or two basics, and then cut more to add easy ways to thin. Ash Barrens, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, Thawing Glaciers, and cost permitting: Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, and Bloodstained Mire. Also Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to turn all your utility lands into swamps. Cards like Journeyer's Kite, Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Wayfarer's Bauble, Armillary Sphere, and Renegade Map can help thin early so you won't see so many lands late game.
Also, Liliana of the Dark Realms has to be in here. She is the mono-Blackest of Black walkers.

Why no Emeria, The Sky Ruin? I know it takes a long time to get online but between Land Tax and some of the other land ramp you have in the deck it doesn't seem impossible for it to work. I've gotten it working in my boros deck and it's similar enough to your deck. You run enough Plains maybe add Journeyer's Kite too. Speaking of land ramp, Expedition Map and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are conspicuously absent to me also.
Here is a link to my deck that I mentioned so you can check it out for other ideas.
