Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor Discussion

Byuante on The Wizardly Lady of Scrolls

4 days ago

Hi multimedia! Thank you so much for your suggestions!

Before I begin, can I ask for why you think I should cut Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor ?

On to the others

Naru Meha, Master Wizard - Yeah, another infinite combo doesn't sound bad!

Sunscorched Desert - Good idea, another win-con piece

Blink of an Eye / Into the Roil - I don't think theyre the best cards, and considering they'd be a somewhat of a winmore I don't think I could justify putting them in

Blue Sun's Zenith - It still kinda seems like a win more, cause with infinite ghostly flickers, I can get infinite mana and infinite untap, which means Azami would dram me out already, I don't think it would work to benefit me all that well

High Tide - I'll have to do some math and do a bit of playtesting, but good idea!

Siren Stormtamer - I don't know how I missed that, it's perfect for this deck, I seriously don't know how I missed it, you're a genius!

In terms of cards to cut

Nephalia Academy - It seems like a weird card, I know, but it's in there to stop opponents from messing with my hand. Blue doesn't have the best recursion in the world, and as such protecting my hand is a number 1 priority

Desert of the Mindful - It enters tapped, yes, but its better than Memorial to Genius. So I'll cut Memorial instead of Desert.

Kadena's Silencer - I dont have any way to control abilities aside from Tale' End, yes 5 mana for a stifle is bad, but its a sacrifice I am currently willing to make.

Jushi Apprentice - Yeah, I can see why you might think it's bad, and I agree, he isn't the best so he's probably gonna get the boot

Elite Arcanist - Yeah....bad, really really really bad version of Isochron Scepter.

I thank you, once again, for your suggestions, if you have any more, I am all ears! and if you think some of my reasoning to dispute cards to cut is faulty, I am also all ears!

Hi again!

Good to see/hear that you've been trying it out and making adjustments. It definitely looks better now.

Good improvements. But Cloudkin Seer is strictly better then Tome Raider . If you want to try another walker in here Vraska, Swarm's Eminence or Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor or Dovin, Hand of Control will help you bide your time. Keeper of Fables could get you more card draw. Silverback Shaman is ultra cheap less then 20 cents. Gargos, Vicious Watcher while you have no synergy and comes in at around 50 cents is and 8/7 for 6 mana.

This feels a lot more together. I'd likely look at a 'draw discard' effect over jace, perhaps something like Chemister's Insight or Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor to help clear dead cards like halberd/lance out of the hand. Past that, its feeling solid enough that the rest is playtesting, tinkering, and sorting out lands.

Benthehen333 - Absolutely! Not a problem. Excited to see the "Still Budget Upgrade List" for sure! I'm hoping to branch out and get more fun "Budget" decks after I made my first EDH Deck modeled after a Voltron Kozilek, the Great Distortion . The deck is a little strong for my meta as well, with the exception of two other not budget decks. If you care to see it: Koz, Colorless EDH Deck

To answer your question I looked at The Tax Man Cometh by KayneMarco and I would prefer you didn't by Molesto-the-Egregious as references: Disruptive Student , Vodalian Mage , Disruptive Pitmage , Turn Aside , Approach of the Second Sun , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Monastery Siege , War Tax , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Daxos of Meletis , Baird, Steward of Argive , Aven Mindcensor , Teyo, the Shieldmage , The Wanderer , Time Wipe , Foresee , Azor's Elocutors , and Marble Diamond are several Non-Land Sub $1 cards I saw in there as well. The list goes on, for sure. I didn't look into it beyond this but any W/U or Colorless card that let's you draw when an opponent draws would be fantastic. Mind's Eye would be a good Sub $5 card I know of, if there were to be upgrades in that deck.

Sorin_Markov_1947 I'll have to check out some of these options. I have toyed with putting Enter the God-Eternals in here, or even Invade the City .

I also think I could use another The Royal Scions so maybe I pull the two Torbrans for 1 more Scions and 1 more Loch Dragon

I like Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor too. kinda like Torbran in her own way.

Torbran doesn't need to be out turn 4, but even later it might be hard to get 3 red mana symbols. I suppose it's possible since you need 2 early anyway, just think about how often he's going to be a dead-draw vs a card that helps you out. To replace him... I like Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor for this archetype, because it gives my planeswalkers a little more protection from things like Swift End , which is in almost any deck that contains black. You might also just take a look at Spark Double or Revenge of Ravens . Another staple of Jeskai Fires decks is Enter the God-Eternals , which is removal + a little lifegain + beefy blocker.

By the way, the way Jeskai gets black is because Jeskai Fires decks use Fires of Invention and Granted to fetch things from the sideboard regardless of color. Doesn't seem to help you a lot though.

The Elderspell I think goes in the sideboard if your only use for it is to kill enemy planeswalkers, because there aren't a lot of decks that rely heavily enough on planeswalkers for you to use it in maindeck. Another strategy though, is to suicide your own planeswalkers to build up another planeswalker. Depends on your strategy.

I run Aminatou as my main commander, and i like the idea.

If youre going to run cards like Aura of Silence you might wanna run the rest of the stuff like that, too. Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue . The planeswalkers can be flickered for extra value as well.

And i feel Reality Acid is required removal for Aminatou. 3cmc, and ruling says you still control it even when their things are enchanted. So go ahead and flicker the crap out of it and destroy everything they know and love.

Finally, just adding Spark Double and Altar of the Brood is a sneaky wincon, because SD and Aminatou blink each other forever and they mill out.

Theres a ton of different ways to go infinite with various combinations of Felidar Guardian , Panharmonicon , Oath of Teferi , Spark Double ... Shameless plug, you can check out my deck for a listing of alot of them.

Id also recommend the all-powerful Peregrine Drake or the Palinchron if you have money.

I love her as a commander so much and i love seeing other peoples takes and ideas.
