Kemba, Kha Regent Discussion

ThePerilousRealm on Hub suggestions

Can I make a hub suggestion in this thread? If so, I'd recommend creating the following:

Cats. A tribal deck that uses the synergies and abilities of Cat cards like Arahbo, Roar of the World , Kemba, Kha Regent , and Brimaz, King of Oreskos .

Once again, thank you Gadianten, for your comment. I'll try and explain why I choose to not run the cards you mentioned.

Brass Squire and especially Semblance Anvil are interesting, but I found to not be worthwhile. Although they let you play your equipment, and equip them faster, the deck doesn't need them. Since they are quite clunky as they are at 3CMC, and only help with half the mana cost of equipment, being that one only helps equip, the other only helps cast. As such I try and keep my mana ramp to low CMC, being 1 CMC tutors and 2 CMC Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Sword of the Animist .

Leonin Shikari , was in the deck for quite a while, but was consistently found to be too low impact. I'm not interested in moving most equipment around once they get onto Kemba, Kha Regent . It does work well with some equipment but proved to be not worthwhile.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin , also used to be in the deck, and it was there for a really long time. It always ended up just being a bad Plains . It is a powerful card, and the opportunity cost for running it here is low. But in this deck, it isn't worth the times where you needed it to be an untapped land. Since it rarely recurs anything significant.

Balan, Wandering Knight does a really bad impression of Kemba, Kha Regent which I am not interested in. Simply put, he doesn't deal commander damage, would come up too rarely, and takes away from the focus of the deck.

Enlightened Tutor would be 100% worthwhile putting into this deck. However, I only have a single copy, which is in another deck being 5C_Paradox.

Thank you Gadianten for taking the time to post your comment!

With regards to the cats, I understand wanting to put in lots of other cat creatures, and initially, I did. However, I wanted to make the deck as focused and competitive as possible while maintaining the same commander. Effectively changing the deck from cat tribal to instead worshipping in the glory of the best kitty Kemba, Kha Regent .

To do this I cut all of the cards which are just there because they're cats. As well as some typically good but slow equipment like Batterskull , in favour of less impressive cards like Darksteel Axe .

With regards to the ramp I completely understand where you are coming from, and in the decks early days this was a major struggle, and I did run 2CMC rocks like Coldsteel Heart . But back in Magic Origins when they printed Sword of the Animist , I slowly cut them all out. The addition of Dowsing Dagger  Flip was also huge in Ixalan. These two cards are what all the tutors are primarily for and it makes all my tutor spells ramp spells, that can also later search for utility.

Not sure I really see the "combat" portion of your deck. You are only running 8 creatures other than you commander. Has it worked out okay to be that light on creatures? I've been afraid to run that few creature in a deck and would love your input. I would figure you have to wrath a lot to not look wide open.

If you find that you need more creatures try out a few of these: Leonin Shikari is Lightning Greaves best friend. Auriok Windwalker is also useful here. Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer love all the equipment goodness you have going on; more card draw. Kemba, Kha Regent , you haz jewelry? I make mor katz.

Another card to think about is Gleam of Authority . A friend of mine had a lot of success using that with your commander. They just had to be careful about when to tap and remove hexproof.

I'm not really sure what cards to suggest cutting, but if you are looking to make changes it is probably to remove some of the universal vigilance. I think you have that ability in a lot of equipments already so you may not need that Brave the Sands and Always Watching package.

Sigarda's Aid is a great card and it helps you get around the equipment costs. I do love the double strike and unblockable package you have going here. I like to Venser, the Sojourner when I get ready to alpha strike.

I took your suggestion for Hedron Archive because you are right the deck rarely needs the extra colorless and boros needs all the card draw it can get. I just don't think Kemba, Kha Regent is worth all the extra mana to dump the equipment on her and then move it all to Aurelia when she drops. I'll be honest, Grafted Exoskeleton isn't in here because I'm not a big fan of infect. Also, after a couple of play tests it looks like White Sun's Zenith is worth the extra 2 mana for the extra power toughness, mainly because it shuffles itself back in for the possibility of drawing into it again. Will continue to experiment as WSZ is much better later in the game whereas StW is better in the early and sometimes mid depending on the situation. Thanks for the help and advice!

I could see trying to fit in Hammer of Purphoros as a haste enabler [and incidental token maker] but not sure what you'd want to cut [I'd probably cut Loxodon Warhammer but that's just me].

You might have enough equipment and search for Kemba, Kha Regent to work consistently. She may be slower but its a constant source of token generation that doesn't require spending mana each turn to maintain.

As much as I like Thran Dynamo in general, for the 6CMC Aurelia I ended up going with Hedron Archive as the option for more card draw is much needed in Boros and the extra colorless produced by the Dynamo doesn't do anything extra over the Archive as far as getting Aurelia out. Just a thought.

And for the Voltron side of things, Grafted Exoskeleton could be a one turn kill out of nowhere with her. I may have to find space in my own Aurelia deck for this [only just thought of it].

Extra Combat steps help you seal the win and since you're only concerned with one creature swinging you can play the only one with flashback: Seize the Day.

Equipoise is my new favourite white tech when you know your creatures are more valuable than your opponents and expect to be outnumbered. It can also prevent interaction by phasing opponents untapped lands out or troublesome artifacts. If your opponent has an artifact creature you can choose it last as an artifact and have them be down a creature from parody which often means an empty board to swing out on.

I would suggest some of the other mardu commanders that also enjoy equipment to be in here so you have a plan B. Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, Kemba, Kha Regent, and Balan, Wandering Knight.

Bludgeon Brawl is a funny card that turns all your mana rocks into equipment as well.
