Kira, Great Glass-Spinner Discussion

A few good cards that could be considered are Nebelgast Herald but that's the only really cheap one. The other expensive ones are Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Geist of Saint Traft both are optional and very good but if you do decide to use one I would recommend only 1 or 2 in the deck each. another option in this deck that could be very good is if you splash green, but of course that makes the deck 3 times more expensive. The cards would be Collected Company (literally gets any creature in your deck even if they don't have flash, making cards such as Selfless Spirit good) Noble Hierarch and Gavony Township. All amazing cards but again very expensive. if you feel a little crazy you could also try Dragonlord Ojutai.

1xBuried Ruin can make your Vials tough to get rid of.

1xKira, Great Glass-Spinner (because it's legendary)

1xJace, Cunning Castaway?

Am I missing something, or is there almost no point to Spreading Seas, especially with a full set of Ghost Quarter? I think something like Imprisoned in the Moon, Pongify, Vapor Snag, or Void Snare or some other more direct means of disruption would be more useful.

Replace 3 x Air Servant with 3 x Sower of Temptation

Replace Water Servant with AEtherling

Replace Jace's Mindseeker and Fleet Swallower with 2x Archetype of Imagination

Replace 2 x Illusionary Armor with 2 more Favorable Winds

Replace Divination, Glimpse the Future and 1-2 others for 3-4 x Amass the Components

Of course these are just suggestions if you really want a card go for it

Some other suggestions

Use Dispel and/or Counterspell and/or Negate

Your creatures are pretty weak, you can control your opponent for a long time but you're missing the dmg to finish it.

If you want to focus more on flying you could use:


Darkslick Drake

Guard Gomazoa

Sprite Noble

Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Dance of the Skywise

Gravitational Shift

Thassa, God of the Sea

Hope i could help :)

I would like to give you some suggestions, Spreading Seas is more powerful than Aquitect's Will because it literally transform any land in an island, so you ruin mana curve of your opponent. You have 8 counters but I think they kinda useless if you have 1 Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and 2 Kopala, Warden of Waves and you should also remember your strenght come in numbers, this is a merfolk deck not a control. For any referens free to check my D's - Modern Merfolks

If you are talking about Vanquisher's Banner it doesn't work that way because you have to cast the creature from your hand, not just whenever one enters the battlefield. However, if you ran Arcane Adaptation it would count every creature you did play to buff everything and draw you more cards.

After a little digging I think you are referring to Kindred Discovery which does work that way and that's pretty bonkers... You would have to have an Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Warstorm Surge, or Laboratory Maniac on the field first to kill everyone else before your library runs out otherwise you would just kill yourself because the draw from Discovery and the token created from the draw on Locust God are both mandatory.

If everyone else dies before the stack finishes resolving do you just win, or does the stack have to finish resolving before they are declared dead at which point you would lose first from running out of cards and then everyone else dies?

In that case, I'd recommend some tutoring. Transmute is a great way to do this and there are on color cards that have the right CMC to get to these.

Drift of Phantasms is CMC 3 which can go get the Lab Maniac. This seems like the absolute best way to just safely win. Omniscience probably wouldn't hurt so that you have access to all of your library for free in case anyone does anything in response. Expensive, but it's Commander.

Muddle the Mixture is CMC 2 which can go get Impact Tremors.

Ethereal Usher is CMC 6 which can go get Niv-Mizzet or Warstorm Surge.

Grozoth is CMC 9 which can only get Blasphemous Act if you Transmute, but if you actually just cast him you get to go get any cards that add up to CMC 9 which can be Niv-Mizzet and Lab Maniac, or Kindred Discovery and Lab Maniac and another one cost like Swan Song to protect yourself from a counterspell or enchantment removal.

Another nice way to protect your creatures is Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Guile. Baral, Chief of Compliance would also draw you a card every time this happens, and Guile will let you cast whatever they used for free.

Anyway, just some suggestions. Saw the comment about Coat of Arms on the homepage recent comments and looking for a card that did something so I thought I'd drop in. Neat deck, all hail The Locust God :)

zretrareo27 on R/W Brion, Blanket non-targeting removal

Let's say I use Mob Rule to get Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, does that mean I cannot sac her to Brion's ability without targeting her with something else first?
