Mystic Confluence Discussion
1 week ago
Pretty interesting list! Curious as to if you think that the triple blue from Cryptic Command is worth it? Wonder if something like Mystic Confluence might feel a little better. Same with Cancel , wondering if something like Arcane Denial might fit the bill better. Feel free to take a look at my list! Kykar Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass

I like alot of these changes. Coiling Oracle sounds like a good upgrade over Sakura-Tribe Elder elder. also playtesting Elvish Rejuvenator in that slot as it grabs any land. unsure which I will end up with, the only worry with Coiling Oracle is that I'm not guaranteed a land, and hitting 4 mana early is so important to this deck.
really hoping that modern horizons has Mystic Confluence in it because that would make this deck so much better. currently playtesting Paradoxical Outcome in that slot as it plays well with our creatures. sounds like a win-more card, but its so nice to attack, mainphase paradoxical then untap with wilderness rec just so I can slam them all down again. only played 3 games with it so far, so early in the testing.
Insidious Will also on the table.

Nice list and great card choices. I am Jenara player myself and I can tell on the spot your list is very competitive.
I think you should consider running few utility lands: Eiganjo Castle , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Yavimaya Hollow , Cavern of Souls and Tectonic Edge . First three from the above really help and support Jenara on the battlefield.
Feel free to check my list where I share in description strategies against my opponent decks (I play Leviathan Commander - 30 hp format).
I will be more than glad to discuss and exchange strategies for Jenara. I am looking for good strat against Sai thopter aggro and Aminatou control. Let me know if you have any cool ideas.
Cheers and have a successful smashing with Jenara!

The answers to your questions vary more based on your deck than they do based on your meta.
If you are playing a control deck, 8ish counterspells is usually sufficient (providing you've got plenty of card draw to make sure they show it). I usually go for some selection of Disdainful Stroke , Arcane Denial , Counterspell , Negate , Essence Scatter , Dissolve , Sinister Sabotage , Swan Song , Commit / Memory and if you can afford them Pact of Negation , Mystic Confluence , Cryptic Command and Mana Drain . Important to remember that Cryptic is not as good in commander as it is in 60-card formats, and Force of Will is mediocre at best. If you are NOT playing control, don't play counters.
Board wipes, if you are playing a heavy creature based aggressive deck, should be zero. If you are playing control, three-four. If you're playing superfriends, 8-9. At least two of Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Supreme Verdict and Damnation should always be the first ones you put in, followed by Merciless Eviction , Blasphemous Act , and Austere Command then some selection of Cyclonic Rift , Evacuation , AEtherize , Settle the Wreckage , Fumigate , Kaya's Wrath , Chain Reaction , Akroma's Vengeance , Terminus , In Garruk's Wake , Necromantic Selection , All Is Dust and Kindred Dominance . Prioritize your picks to 1) be cheap so you aren't restricted from casting them and 2) be flexible - Merciless Eviction and Austere Command should be high pirority picks, and things that bounce/tuck/sacrifice are good for indestructibility.
As for spot removal... play little to none. Unless your deck focuses on it, it's fairly weak. I'd run things like Hero's Downfall / Vraska's Contempt / Beast Within / Swords to Plowshares / Path to Exile because they are cheap, flexible, and can deal with hard-to-answer permanents, but I wouldn't typically run more than two-three in a deck. The exception, of course, is right here: Shameless self promotion.
Remember that you're playing in multiplayer pods. If you spend one card to answer an opponent's one card, you're down by the two cards your other two opponents didn't have to spend. That makes both spot removal and counterspells much worse than usual. Board wipes are by far preferable to both options.

ManaLocked Yesterday I played a sweet game with this list and am already thinking about improvements and changes. In that game, I developed only lands and bodies on the first couple turns, but got powered up by Joraga Treespeaker and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar (eventually recurred by Eternal Witness ), also featuring a Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker from turn 2 getting stacked. I recovered my board from a board wipe--powered up by that huge Hangarback Walker and Toothy dying--by setting up another big Toothy, which met Swords to Plowshares. Before getting exiled, Toothy prevented a Niv-Mizzet player from winning by forcing blocks, with assistance from Hardened Scales , and Hadana's Climb Flip flipping into Winged Temple of Orazca. Karn Liberated also put in work to remove a big blocker and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Eventually I was able to eliminate two players in one turn (including protecting my lethal attackers with both Mystic Confluence and Heroic Intervention ), but not before flying chip damage and a big chunk from Havoc Festival brought me to a low enough life total that a Bosh, Iron Golem was able to finish me off in the same turn.
Loxodon Warhammer is a card that comes to mind as a card that I would have loved to have accessed during that game. Granting trample to a big Toothy and getting a big life swing to boot could be useful in many different situations. I love that almost any effect from an opponent that causes Toothy to leave the battlefield compensates me with a serious amount of cards: this mitigates the risk of inherent to an equipment like Warhammer, whereas normally it's punished with removal, especially instants. While Warhammer doesn't literally synergize with counters cards, it provides multiple effects that round out the strategy, and is probably the card I am going to add first.
Other notes on artifacts: The first board wipe caused me to forget that I had a tapped Power Conduit hidden among my lands, but somehow I sold how much I still like the card that it traded with a Scour from Existence. This card is tricky and interesting but it might just be worse than something like a Thought Vessel . I still want to get a feel of how good Throne of Geth is before I can determine whether Tezzeret, Artifice Master is something I want to add: a copy of Garruk, Primal Hunter I had drawn late game felt rather stranded in hand over a rebuilding board, but it has so much more potential for outrageous draws to boost Toothy and my hand, that I like it much more than Tezzeret, especially with this few artifacts to begin with. Neither of Tezz's abilities seem worthwhile enough to risk spend 5 mana on just to have it die to attackers or removal, and this deck might struggle to take advantage of the ultimate as currently constructed. Maybe the superfriends build wants him; I don't think this one does.
The deck is also very light on graveyard recursion, running only Eternal Witness. Being a little light on recursion is fine, as the card draw consistency of Toothy is resource advantage enough, but sometimes the best line can be made much better with a card from the graveyard. The top of my list is currently Seasons Past and maybe Elixir of Immortality , both of which also offer protection against decking.
Spike Weaver is next on the add list. Holding mana for the fog on it feels bad, but as this ability can mainly be used as a deterrent or political tool, it seems the upside is too good to pass up. I got a copy and am looking for a cut for it.
I'll add more to the description soon. This is absolutely currently my pet deck and it even inspired my choice to build The Haunt of Hightower , with the thoughts of placing a Hightower of counters on the commander reminding me of this deck. Thanks for your feedback and good luck to you!
