Nahiri, the Harbinger Discussion

BMHKain on Sliver Queen, Spark Harvesting Hive Mind

I still need some stuff cut for this deck:

Nahiri, the Harbinger

Toxic Deluge

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

Merciless Eviction

Kiora, the Crashing Wave

Coalition Relic

Oath of Ajani

But I will NOT sacrifice:

Rowan Kenrith + Will Kenrith (Rowan can kill alongside Lightmine Field & her Emblem is Bonkers. Will Freezes huge threats & Further cheapens Planeswalker Costs.)

Cryptolith Rite (Tokens as Mana is BIG.)

Lightmine Field (Kills Attackers.)

Apocalypse + Teferi's Protection (A WIN-CON. X'P)

Sandwurm Convergence (Locks Flyers from attacking.)

Eldrazi Monument (Remember, Sliver Queen can make her own Brood.)

Narset Transcendent (She locks down opponents.)

Paradox Engine

Thran Temporal Gateway

Captain Sisay (This combo explodes.)

I hope all understand... Good luck!

Thanks cplvela0811! Your deck and others were an inspiration to tinker with Demigod of Revenge. I will consider Nahiri, the Harbinger.

Seems Legit.

I have a deck that may or may not inspire this one, from a ways back:


Modern cplvela0811


I would recommend Nahiri, the Harbinger, as she pitches Demigod of Revenge, Lingering Souls, and Bloodghast.

In order to take an extra turn with Scepter you have:

4 coretapper, 4 chamber, 4 power conduit, 3 clock spinning, 4 constrictor to double the counters and 10 extra ways to find it. Including the 3 scepters, you have 32 cards to support the combo, 29 of which are not impactful in any way.

This combo requires way too much support to be viable and the support you have to include to run it is not worth it for taking infinite turns that require 4 cards at least that otherwise do nothing.

Combos are good when:

1/ The pieces are useful outside the combo eg Restoration Angel + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

2/ The combo is but one of the ways to victory eg Nahiri, the Harbinger + Emrakul, the Promised End.

3/ You have ways to power it out earlier than expected that are still useful otherwise eg Simian Spirit Guide or Birds of Paradise.

4/ You have extra redundancy - Chord of Calling and Collected Company in a company deck can find either of the combo pieces and/or the finisher.

The deck has a couple of those going for it, but the 30+ cards that enable the combo take away from it.

Yes, Nahiri, the Harbinger would be usefull because of her first and second ability. Mizzix's Mastery can be a blowout when cards like Star of Extinction and Price of Progress are in the yard, but maybe I'd have to cut some x-spells to utilize it consistently. Thanks for your suggestions!

I think Nahiri, the Harbinger could help here. I'm guessing it shouldn't be to hard to defend her and she can fetch you whatever combo piece you might need. Mizzix's Mastery might work here, too.

P.P.S. consider one less mountain to add Nahiri, the Harbinger

Okay, running with the theme of tokens:

First, let's add some all-around good cards for token generating decks. Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession are worth considering for some incredible token generation. Cathars' Crusade also has nice synergy with tokens as well. Just for fun, let's say we used Elspeth, Sun's Champion's ability with all these effects in play: we would get twenty-four 49/49 soldiers.

Akroma's Memorial is fantastic (particularly if you can cast it for 5 mana), and works wonderfully with tokens.

It might be useful to have something else which generates flying on your tokens so you can more effectively use them to protect your walkers.

Woops. Looks like we've added some cards.

Now time for some cuts:

  1. Chandra, Torch of Defiance - great card, powerful abilities all-around; doesn't really have great synergy with this deck.

  2. Mu Yanling - quite mediocre and expensive to cast. Doesn't really fit well with your theme.

  3. Nahiri, the Harbinger - not really what your deck is trying to do.

  4. Ob Nixilis Reignited - again, does not fit with your deck's theme.

  5. Tamiyo, Field Researcher - fairly solid card, but you don't really need the defense it provides--that's what tokens are for.

  6. Insidious Will - really mediocre card. You generally will not want to leave 4 mana open anyway.

  7. Sensei's Divining Top - one of the best cards ever printed, but I don't think you need it in this deck.

This is just a start. You have a number of redundant walkers (i.e. a bunch of token generators--you don't need to run them all), but I don't know your meta and have not playtested this much, so don't know which to recommend cutting.

Regarding your Jace question: There is a reason Jace, the Mind Sculptor was banned in Modern for so long--he is arguably the best planeswalker ever printed. He lets you control your opponents' draws. He lets you cast the most commonly played card in Legacy (Brainstorm) for free each turn. He bounces problematic creatures for a really low loyalty cost. He obliterates an opponent's library, putting them on a countdown timer to death. Every single one of his abilities is fantastic.
