Lightning Greaves Discussion

McToters on Jeskai Kiki Combo

Super interesting version of Numot! How does this play? It looks like you run a lot of blink effects whih doesn't seem like a natural path to building something with Numot at the helm.

I like how you have ~4 lands that can do some sort of pump to Numot (or make unblockable). Based on that I would say you should take a few lands out to put more lands like that in--things that pump Numot or even protect him.

This will sound basic and boring but i think Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots can do you some good. Even a Darksteel Plate or Whispersilk Cloak too.

Other than a few land swaps the only thing that really sticks out to me as "weak" is Oath of Teferi--since you are only running 4 planeswalkers, but that obviously depends on how you like it and how the deck plays.

Very unique though! I would be intrigued to play against this.

You make a solid point that those effects are not dealt with by indestructible or hexproof! As true as a "dies to doomblade" style point is, I don't think the deck can afford to play around every possible effect.

I encourage you to explore Wormfang Manta ! That's what EDH is great for, right? In my build, the card I use to "answer" effects like merciless Eviction or Terminus (other than good ol' Counterspell is Cavern Harpy . Especially given that Lazav is pretty easy to re-cast, non-targeted bounce effects are lower on my list of frights. To retain the ability to threaten an attack on the turn Lazav, the Multifarious comes into play, I use Lightning Greaves and Nether Shadow , although there are several other black creatures w/ haste that can fill that role as well (and don't force you to maintain graveyard order).

Really cool build, +1!!!

Aetherflux Reservoir and Felidar Sovereign good win cons with infinite life.

Lightning Greaves awesome protection, Swiftfoot Boots also good, to protect not only Shalai but key combo pieces. Privileged Position good back up for when Shalai not on board. Heroic Intervention will save you from non-target board wipes, would be great with Sceptor.

You could definitely mix up the manabase to get some utility lands and accelerants, hard to justify just basics with so many non-basic options.

Really good stuff, looks super fun

Lodestone Golem could be worth playing in the deck. With all the 0 mana artifacts, Whir of Invention seems like it has a place here; it can search for Master Transmuter and you could fit in an Ensnaring Bridge to fetch out when you need it. Have you ever considered Platinum Emperion? It's great when you're behind and about to die and you can give it shroud with Lightning Greaves to make yourself nearly unkillable. I'd say it's better than Filigree Angel in most cases since it's harder to remove with burn.

Spire of Industry is probably better than City of Brass most of the time, by the way.

NoOneOfConsequence with a haste enabler, it wins easily for 3 mana with minimal cards, Thousand-Year Elixir, Concordant Crossroads, and Lightning Greaves all work well. Sadly Thousand-Year Elixir is the only one I can fetch mid-line, before Kaho, Minamo Historian by using Trophy Mage on 3, then casting and tapping the elixir, to get to 4. This is annoying on many levels, turning what could be a 3 mana win into a 7 mana win. The best way to mid-line find the others would be to Spellseeker for a Dizzy Spell/Muddle the Mixture, transmute, then cast, then somehow untap Vannifar again. That takes more mana, and colored mana at that.

As is, Kahocombo is the best one-creature line with no outside cards, but just isn't viable with a normal amount of mana, so to remedy that you need a silly amount of ramp, and that makes the deck a bit bad at protecting itself, even when it gets consistent turn 3s.

papahiggs Alhammarret's Archive and Mana Echoes are a bit pricey, but the former not so much that I won't rule it out. Lightning Greaves I want to include but I'm thinking about what to cut for it. I was thinking Neurok Stealthsuit, but I also considered that it might be better to cut something elsewhere in order to not only have a more efficient form of protection, but to also have more of it.

I'm also thinking about including Gitaxian Probe somewhere but I'd need to consider what I should cut for it or if it would be worth cutting anything at all for it. Even though I have a rule against cutting lands, I thought maybe that could be what I cut for it since it's essentially free, but I'm still thinking about it.

Finally about counterspells I do have them, but most are conditional due to most of them also drawing me a card. I was thinking about including more hard counters to increase my range of influence but I'm not sure if the cuts I would make would be worth it.

Might I suggest Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves? Yes, the equip cost is 0 on greavea but that's at sorcery speed so it doesn't respond to removal and honestly if it doesn't do that what's the point of the equip cost? It stops you from using abilities you control to tap the equipped creature, where the boots do not.
