Rabid_Wombat I didn't know one of the two that you mentioned and the one I didn't know of would be Obliterate. I decided to take out Harmonize for Obliterate because Obliterate is uncounterable. The reason I had Harmonize in the deck was for consistency sake, but the commander can do the job just fine.

Wildfire is problematic because the card is forcing you to sacrifice your own lands and you want to maximize your benefit instead of setting yourself back.

Why no Wildfire & Obliterate??

Are you too nice to run them? ;)

I made a lord windgrace deck as well. I absolutely love him as a commander. I sadly don't have a list to let you look over, but it's primarily enchantment focused so i can use stuff like Jokulhaups and exodia Obliterate to constantly blow up the board and be able to recover from multiple land wipes fairly easily

This deck is definutely scary. Have you considered putting Blood Sun into this deck? Obliterate could screw a lot of people over. You're playing Armageddon so why not go all out? Sacred Ground will permit you to play your lands from the grave too. Diabolic Tutor is a classic for tutoring. Wave of Vitriol and The Great Aurora are decent boardwipes in green. Polukranos, World Eater is a boardwipe on a stick. Hydra Omnivore could also be worthy of consideration: it attacks all opponents if it deals combat damage.

I hope these suggestions helped!

Someone in the comments suggested Worldslayer, but how do you feel about Obliterate? Does the same and it can't be countered ;)

Hey @Polybius!

Thanks so much for the kind words and following! I’m so happy you’ve found inspiration in my list!

I’ll take our card questions one by one: Obliterate I love this effect, and ran a similar card in Jokulhaups for quite some time. Obliterate is likely better as it can’t be interacted with. I removed but I will likely cycle it back in at some point, so long as we have the Sek Dad in play we are likely to get enough value to win in a few turns.

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts another card I ran for quite some time. This is something of a pet card for me, as I really started playing in the Mercadian Masques block. I think she is a good version of the Natural Affinity effect, but she is a little slow and clunky. She does have other uses like deterring wrath’s for fear of wiping an opponents board. I ultimately cut her because I feel like my deck has room for only 2-3 of the effect and I prefer the versatility of Life and the surprise factor and universality of OG Natural Affinity

Sylvan Awakening this one I’ve struggled with. I would love to find a spot for it because it seems actually reasonable to cast even with no synergies in play to alpha strike or just hold up blockers for a critical turn. It also had mad synergy with Omnath, Locus of Rage. But as stated above, I feel like since my deck is less all in combo centric I have limited room for the narrow Natural Affinity effects. But I do think I can cap at 3 and currently run 2, so.... might find it’s way in!

World Shaper has been really great as a second copy of Splendid Reclamation. Every time I cast either card I feel like I’ve gotten away with something nasty. It’s definitely not as good as reclamation, the setup cost is higher, but both are worth running imo.

Let me know how your deck transformation goes, I’m excited to hear how you’ve struck a middle ground!

Very cool decklist, +1 from me!

I've looked extensively at your and VesuvanDoppelbanger's decklists and I like them a lot! I've run Sek'Kuar for around two years now and have had a lot of success with a more token-centric build, focused around combos. I'm looking to retool my deck to fit somewhere in between where you both are.

Combos like Ashnod's Altar + Cryptolith Rite + Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper + Nether Traitor have put in serious work for me. Making infinite tokens and mana is almost too easy with Sek boi! My main problem is if I don't pull off an infinite combo I get hated off the table or have a bunch of creatures that don't impact the board enough to kill three other players immediately.

What are your thoughts on Obliterate, Sylvan Awakening, and Jolrael, Empress of Beasts? They seem like they could add a lot to a "lands matter" theme.

Also, how has World Shaper performed for you? I have one I could add but I'm iffy on putting him in.

sethazur on izzet artifact ramp + super draw

Hey, nice deck! Let me make a few suggestions: Since you run Show and Tell, wouldn't it be nice to add cards such as It That Betrays, Omniscience, Blightsteel Colossus and other really big stuff in blue/red/colorless?

Now, why is it that you want to ramp so much whilst using Jhoira of the Ghitu in the command zone? She actually needs ramping only on turns 1 and 2, so she can go off ASAP by using her ability. After that, you will be drawing dead artifacts that won't help you win the game. Also, Jeskai Banner, Temur Banner and Obelisk of Grixis are illegal in your deck, since they contain white, green and black in their color identities, respectively.

Add some cheap interactions as Pongify, Negate, Counterspell, Vandalblast and Cyclonic Rift, Pithing Needle to help hold the board whilst you haven't went off.

Consider the addition of temporal tools, such as Jhoira's Timebug, Rift Elemental and Fury Charm.

And to abuse Jhoira's ability, consider adding expensive Global Removal, such as Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation and Jokulhaups. The thing is, for example, you set both Obliterate and Blightsteel Colossus with 4 time counters on them, try to make them resolve faster, using temporal tools, and if they would go to the stack at the same time, order the spells to resolve the Global Removal before the Beefy creature, them everybody has no lands, artifacts nor creatures, whilst you are left with a Zigagilion/Zigagilion creature.

Oh, a cheap combo possible in your deck is by adding Curiosity in order to use it with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, you'd draw as much as you want from your deck, and deal the same amount in damage to your opponents.

That's usually the plan of the deck. Other People consider a way more controlling approach, and use Jhoira's Ability to actually help you control the board whilst advancing your own, until you're able to combo of in some Izzet Way. I like both, if you want to hear more about it, just say so.
