Kami of the Crescent Moon Discussion

Saljen on Everyone likes to draw cards, right?

@seshiro_of_the_orochi - Thanks for the suggestion! Kami of the Crescent Moon is a creature, and therefor more susceptible to common removal, which is why I never really considered it. It's also Legendary, making stacking it impossible. Howling Mine comes in at 2 mana and Temple Bell lets me control when I draw, in case my hand is full on my turn or I want to force an opponent to draw extra at the beginning of their end step. UU mana is also much harder to cast than 3 colorless mana, since Cloudpost is where all of my ramp comes from.

Thanks for your comment!

SynergyBuild on Tiana, the only boros commander that draws

Yeah, so is it my imagination that Sram, Senior Artificer, the most popular mono-white commander on EDHREC and one of the cheapest card draw engines in the Command Zone in the game, next to Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Nin, the Pain Artist, Sygg, River Cutthroat, and the almighty Thrasios, Triton Hero, while Sram also being one of the most efficient after it hits.

Or you know, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, a repeatable tutor in the command zone, Djeru, With Eyes Open, another tutor, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, repeatable recursion much like the old Reya Dawnbringer, or in red Daretti, Scrap Savant, one of the most popular mono-red commanders (#2 on EDHREC) with built in card selection, recursion, and more, emblemmy recursion on top, Zada, Hedron Grinder, a storm commander that gains card advantage with effects like Expedite, Godo, Bandit Warlord being a tutor, Feldon of the Third Path being recursion that is repeatable.

And again, the other boros commanders like Depala and Munda.

I guess I was mistaken, and some of the most popular commanders of all time, like Zada storm on a budget, Sram, or Daretti never existed.

As someone who thinks infinite combos are the bane of existence, holy crap this deck in brutal and infuriating. That being said, it is quite impressive. Have you considered Telepathy as a way to know exactly what your opponents are up to while you set up the Stasis lock? I've played against enough Kami of the Crescent Moon decks to know that it always needs to die first (and I am sure I am not alone). So if your opponents see someone else with a hand full of heaters, they might leave you alone because a) you are drawing them extra cards and b) the other person seems scarier at the time.

Also, what about Psychosis Crawler as an additional path to victory?

The creature's stats I think are too big.

The "Defender" and activated ability on the card is basically Slithering Shade: it can block, but can't attack until you have an empty hand. This seems to make a creature cheaper by 2, since we compare it to Frozen Shade (which may or may not be underpowered, since they later printed Looming Shade). At a cost of 4, I would compare it to a Lumengrid Gargoyle with those abilities.

Kami of the Crescent Moon is smaller than comparable creatures like Plated Seastrider. I would expect it to be 1 toughness less than Lumengrid Gargoyle for the same cost, and legendary.

I also think that it should be Legendary, because duplicate copies wouldn't be dead the same way as extra Kami of the Crescent Moon(because it's legendary) and Slithering Shade(because you can only spend mana on one).

If you buy all these arguments, this creature would be a Legendary 4/3 with the same abilities.

I would also say that since the proposed card also has a built-in Hellbent enabler, it should probably also suffer a further reduction in power, perhaps to a 3/3. But, I think I tend to err on the side of underpowered.
