Ojutai Exemplars Discussion

Firebrand Archer , Abbot of Keral Keep , Jeskai Elder , Mistfire Adept , If you can and are willing to due it's price, Monastery Mentor , Ojutai Exemplars , Soulblade Djinn , Soulfire Grand Master in case you are willing to trade some card draw instants for Bolts, Helix and such spells, even so, with her ability it could get your spells back, Strongarm Monk , Monastery Swiftspear and Student of Ojutai , those will be my suggestions to achieve something like a monk type tribal thing? also some of them help your commander such as the one that taps creatures and gives flying, Voltron seems like a good theme for this guy, if you put up a description sooner, tag me in! I wanna see it, and if you want to come by my profile to see some of my decks, will be appreciated! :)

I like Hunted Lammasu best of those options. Akroan Horse is good, but takes time to really earn itself, and there's a lot of artifact hate, from Kolaghan's Command to Abrade .1 horror is a lot easier to deal with than 5 goblins, though, yeah. I I should have looked through the hunted cycle again. I went down from 3 to 2 phantasms for that reason, 5 creatures being hard to keep under control.

I'll take out the time ravelers, but I'm not sure what I'll replace it with. If I end up needing more reliable creature presence on the opposite side of the board, I could add more Hunted Lammasu , but Niblis of Frost is also good, and I like the ability to make an Opt a free activated ability from Quiet Contemplation . Against aggro, lifelink would be helpful, so maybe Ojutai Exemplars instead of the niblis of frost?

As for having a way to permanently shut creatures down, that kind of goes against the aesthetic. The hope is that I'll be able to net more value out of it than my oppinent will with Verity Circle . Not all games will have verity circle out though, I know.

Gideon is a way to deal with tapped creatures, but he's a 1-of. Should I bump that number up, or go with a card like Swift Reckoning ?

Gonna suggest Ojutai Exemplars . Still surprised they don't get more love...

Icing a creature every time you cast a cantrip is a potent ability both offensively and defensively, and first strike/lifelink can both be relevant.

Sphinx-Bone Wand is for multiplayer games that grind to a stand still, I don't know your meta but if your not playing against hyper competitive decks, something that would be rough on a budget deck, its a nice way to seal the game when you are cantriping 3-4 times a turn to build damage rapidly although there is the lite version Sentinel Tower .

Having play tested your deck a few rounds I think you could drop about six creatures, mostly the heroic ones although I do like Anax and Cymede , and add a couple of more lands and some more cantrip spells trying to keep things around 1-2 mana. With your commander you never really want to miss a land drop as the deck is actually pretty mana hungry when it wants to do its thing. I think as far as creatures generally go you want stuff that rewards you for casting but not having to be targeted like Balefire Liege , Electrostatic Field , Firebrand Archer , Ojutai Exemplars , Thermo-Alchemist and Weaver of Lightning . Regardless I think it looks like a fun deck and hope to get my hands on a copy of Feather my self.

The Ojutai Exemplars, once they return, would be untapped by the Dramatic Reversal but they would also require haste to then attack. Since they are new to the battlefield once more, they are summoning sick. If that was still your plan to blink then attack.

Neotrup on Ojutai Exemplars Trigger + Untap ...

Yes. Because Ojutai Exemplars's ability is the first to resolve it will be back on the battlefield tapped by the time Dramatic Reversal resolves. As Dramatic Reversal has no targets it cannot be fizzled so you'll untap your permanents without issue.
