Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor Discussion

Hey RhythmBeast thanks for checking out the list. If you ever get a list of your own together I would love to take a look! As for your suggestions. Ixidor's Will is nice but, the way this deck operates currently most turns you’re not left with a lot of mana. Usually only two mana at best. So until I can get some copies of free cost counters (ie. Force of Will, Pact of Negation, etc.) I’m running counters that have two colored mana costs like Counterspell and Logic Knot. As if I plan to use something like Logic Knot I can usually keep up Kaza or an Untapper. There’s also a much higher chance of Ixidor's Will being a dead draw because of little or no wizards on board. And if I’m in a situation with no little or no wizards, cards like Logic Knot can still be used effectively for cheaper. Where as Ixidor's Will would cost more and potentially do less. I’m definitely going to add Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor to the Maybeboard. It’s a lot of mana for not a whole lot I feel like. Mostly because the play group I’m in doesn’t really have a lot of targeted removal or other things that Kasmina would help with. So if the meta of my play group changes I definitely will consider adding it in for more protection. I really like Banefire! Any card that has additional bonus for a high X values has a lot of synergy in this deck. Additionally, it’s only one colored mana which I feel could really come in clutch in a pinch so Banefire will probably replace one of my other X burn spells! Thanks again for the suggestions RhythmBeast

Great list! I was looking to build a Kaza deck because I think the card is extremely underrated, but ended up puting it into the 99 of an Inalla deck until I figure out a good build. This is a fantastic start. A couple cards came to mind when I saw the way you are going with the deck- Ixidor's Will, Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor, and Banefire.

You can definitely get some good work in with this deck. I think you'll need at least 1 more board wipe, Extinction Event would be useful to keep your Dream Trawler alive, and more Banishing Light. There is a lot of aggro out there right now.
You may also consider running Yorion, Sky Nomad and increasing this to 80 cards. I know that might seem like a lot, but you are easily on color for him, and there are a lot of successful Yorion decks out there. He plays well with planeswalkers and Elspeth Conquers Death. Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage are cheap to add to fill some space if you go that route.
Just some thoughts. Good Luck!

It's coming a long nicely, there is still some work to be done though, I'd cut both Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor and The Wanderer for wrath effects, ideally Supreme Verdict but there are other options such as Settle the Wreckage. Both the aforementioned walkers are very low impact and not particularly relevant ability wise, in other words, they are never going to be cards you are happy about drawing really.
I'm also not sold on a full playset of Quench that feels like it will just come back to hurt you as the game goes into the deeper turns you are more or less designed to dominate in. Instead, while I could see playing a single copy of quench I'd like some form of spot removal: Glass Casket, Declaration in Stone, Seal Away, Stasis Snare, Baffling End, and Detention Sphere all strike me as viable options here.
Finally, the mana needs to be re-worked, yes you are a jeskai deck primarily, but the most important thing you can do turn one in this deck is play Oath of Nissa, as such you want to be able to have access to green mana turn one. Ideally that will take the form of Breeding Pool and Temple Garden but that isn't very budget friendly. Instead, simply adding some basic forests to the deck will go a long way to better equipping the deck to succeed in the long game. With that in mind you may also want to find room for Fabled Passage if you have access to it as some form of mana fixing. Finally I'd cut a plains for a Raugrin Triome, just some additional cover as the game goes on, plus it cycles if you don't need it.

Remove Expedite as 8 of your 15 creatures have haste.
Consider Temur Battle Rage. It's a game finisher.
Monastery Swiftspear is a prowess decks best friend
Izzet Prowess (M21 Pioneer) is my build. It's very aggressive and swings massive turns 3 and 4

Alesamuel glad to hear you like my deck and thanks for the suggestions! I am aware of the lack of a wishboard with this deck, but I'm mostly playing Karn, the Great Creator because of its ability to shut off mana rocks and the like. I do have a Scion of Urza that I can use in its place but Great Creator entering with 5 loyalty and having asymmetrical artifact negation feels pretty good so that's why I included it.
Sword of Truth and Justice looks pretty sweet, I might just have to include that for myself, so thank you for that.
In the future, I'm thinking of putting some counterspells in this deck over a couple of the planeswalkers that don't do a whole lot (Dovin, Hand of Control and Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor come to mind) to help protect my cards better.
