Kemba, Kha Regent Discussion

TriusMalarky on What are equipments with downsides?

1 month ago

Can I also point out that Magnetic Theft and Act of Treason effects are the only ways to get these attached to our opponent's creatures? The Equip ability literally says 'Attach to target creature you control'. That means, no other creatures. Meaning that you have to have these other cards in hand to be able to use your bad equipment in any way.

Don't use equipment as removal. You totally could, however, build a deck around equipping your creatures and buffing them up a ton. There's enough support for that that you could build a fun and fairly decent(in casual games) deck. Might I point out Valduk, Keeper of the Flame and Kemba, Kha Regent?

Yeah, Kaheera, the Orphanguard would be a reasonable replacement for Kemba, Kha Regent. I'd almost rather have King of the Pride for the additional +1 instead of vigilance. Where Kaheera, the Orphanguard is better is it can companion, however, means a bit of pivoting around combos and strategies with the restriction of the creature subtypes.

When Leonin Shikari and Puresteel Paladin are onboard, it's amazing to reallocate all the equipment to make cats, and then utilize the equipment onto unblocked, or blocked (giving trample) attackers.

Some games Kemba, Kha Regent has made an impact, lots of the time, I feel like it's just wasting the equipment from other attackers to make vanilla 2/2 creatures. Depends on the situation. The more token makers the better value your get from Kaheera, the Orphanguard as well, so the direct replace does make it a bit slower. I just found Kemba, Kha Regent without a centralized equipment focus was too slow.

Dunno if that helps but Kaheera, the Orphanguard in the 99 is a fair trade, as a companion, means quite a bit of re-evaluation and rework.

Hi TzickyT,

Deck is solid. I would get Tree of Tales and Ancient Den to support the Puresteel Paladin. Perhaps replace Memorial to Glory so you don't weaken your Blackblade Reforged.

I think more important than mana (land and artifact where all the $$$ is spent), is Sylvan Tutor and Worldly Tutor will give you a higher consistency on T3/T4 infect wins. Unfortunately they aren't cheap unless they get reprints.

I don't see any cards I wouldn't play in the main, I like the inclusion of Sword of the Animist and Krosan Vorine.

Harrow is an under-utilized ramp, it's benefit over something like Cultivate is that the lands come in untapped, so your net cost for that extra land is CMC1 (sac the land you just tapped of course) and you can play something else that turn!

Generous Gift the new Beast Within.

I have been getting tired of Kemba, Kha Regent lack of performance as lately in my budget deck, often feels like a mis-utilization of equipment, unless I have the equip on-board to re-purpose for combat, and now that Balan, Wandering Knight is out of budget for my deck now, makes it even worse for me. Felt like Pride Sovereign 2.0. But then again, some games I have high success with both those cats in my budget league with the go-wide they provide, so really can't exclude either.

Has a cohesive strategy, should be out to early aggro, has a couple built in mid-range ability to win, good lifegain. I would assume it's pretty fun to play too.

DashCat You mean, like in addition to: Baird, Steward of Argive, Balan, Wandering Knight, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Isamaru, Hound of Konda, Kemba, Kha Regent, Kwende, Pride of Femeref, Sephara, Sky's Blade, Sram, Senior Artificer, and (my personal favorite), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben? Ok...


Staccella, Supreme Mystic

Whenever you cycle a card, draw an additional card, then discard a card

, Exile 5 cards from your graveyard: Cast target noncreature, nonartifact card from your graveyard without paying its mana cost


Can't tell if the CMC is too high. Debating whether it would be 2WW, or if 2WWW is appropriate for the power level.

Was ninja'd, so do above.

Hey, a little more info about Elemental Bond and how good of a repeatable draw source it can be because you have easy access to Kaheera, the Orphanguard's +1/+1 anthem for Cats. Bond triggers when tokens are created that's a reason it has so much potential with Cats. Anthem effects are called static abilities and each one is applied to Cats as they enter the battlefield.

King of the Pride is the best example of how good Bond can be as a draw source because any 1/1 Cat ETB with 3 power which triggers Bond. Bond + King + Brimaz, King of Oreskos/Leonin Warleader for example when you attack can create 3 power Cats and draw a card when each one is created. White Sun's Zenith creates 2/2 Cats, but with Kaheera these Cats ETB as 3/3s; each Cat will trigger Bond which can draw a lot of cards. Kemba, Kha Regent creates 2/2 Cats which with Kaheera are 3/3s when they ETB which triggers Bond each time.

Having two anthem effects on the battlefield such as Kaheera and Regal Caracal also makes any 1/1 Cat ETB as 3/3 to trigger Bond. In fact if you have Bond + Kaheera on the battlefield then Regal will draw three cards when it ETB.

There's two Ajani's that are budget and their ultimates create Cat tokens: Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Both these Ajani's +1 loyalty abilities can give Cats permanent pump with +1/+1 counters, but they do other things also. Adversary is the better of the two because it's -7 is not hard to achieve, a turn faster than Caller and if you get the emblem it's a repeatable source of creating Cats at your end step. Adversary can also provides something that Selesnya wants which is creature reanimation. Ajani can reanimate a one or two drop Cat such as Bronzehide Lion or Fleecemane Lion which can be helpful to recover.

SirChris39 thank you so much for the support, my Balan, wandering knight deck is the physical list that I currently own (that's why it's not 100% optimized). She's actually a really good mono-white commander that even if you can see it coming, there's often no stopping her. I love how artifacts can almost completely make up for the short falls of white. I actually keep a side board of cards handy so I can change commanders and strategies between games, so when I pull that deck out you never know what to expect. Again thank you for your support, I plan on expanding my list greatly once all the turmoil settles down. If you have any thoughts or suggestions I'm always open to input. Balan is a wonderful commander who is one of the best Volton commanders in mono white. Fully optimized it wins turn 4-6 with the set up I have now it's more like 6-8. Still, the look on people's faces when Balan swings in the first time and dethrones the strongest player is priceless. Balan is also great because she can react to instant speed removal as long as I have the right equipment, and I usually do. My favorite white commanders: Kemba, Kha Regent make an unstoppable army that makes her unstoppable, Sram, Senior Edificer play 0 cost equipment and draw way more cards than anyone else in mono-white, Balan, Wandering Knight hardest hitting Volton commander who lets you cheat equip costs (because whowould think that's a thing. I'm actually curious about Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale so I can use Embercleave and a little knight tribal.

Monomanamaniac on Balan, one-punch man

Joe_Ken_ not a bad suggestion. I was considering wayfarer's bauble. I need to update the list. Burnished Hart is one of those cards I overlooked, but once I have Foundry Inspector it would look a lot better. I do consider my cost reduction cards to be mana rocks too in a way, if they reduce a cost they essentially produced that mana. Mind stone is cool, but it's kinda weak tbh. If I'm going to add another mana rock it would be Thought Vessel or something crazy. Knight of the White Orchid is also on my list, because it's a staple. I still have a large wish list, but I want this one to represent my physical collection. Still, it's a deck with about 180 cards and 3 commanders Kemba, Kha Regent, Sram, Senior Artificer, and the star is balan (in this version). I use proxies in the other 2 versions, but this one is pretty dangerous. It's great to represent what is thought of as a weak color (white in commander), by supplementing its weaknesses with artifacts. Can't wait to get it down to 100 for now.

That makes sense. It gets out of hand really quick. I was running it in the 99 of my Kemba, Kha Regent deck and have been more impressed by it in most games. Better voltron commander but kemba is a better go big, go wide commander in multiplayer. Now I know this works I'm going to make a Balan edh deck.
