Reki, the History of Kamigawa Discussion

p0megranates on Sisay Paradox Storm

@neonburst: Aetherflux is a fine choice but I have a better suggestion which nobody else is playing: Bow of Nylea. Bow is tutorable with Sisay, and with just (2) mana from nonland sources excluding Mox Opal, you can draw your entire deck on the Paradox Engine turn.

The combo is to sac Hope of Ghirapur, put it back into your deck with Bow's activated ability, tutor it with Sisay, and replay Hope. This only requires (2)(G) mana per iteration, and the (G) can come from Mox Opal. With Reki, the History of Kamigawa (also costs 2G), you draw your entire deck.

While Bow can be a pretty bad card, I think that Aetherflux Engine can be even more dead. Additionally, running Bow means you don't necessarily need to run Azusa (unless you really want to) since Inventors' Fair doesn't become a necessary part of the combo. The Azusa->Inventors' Fair thing is already pretty sketchy to be honest because you often need to spend a Sisay tap tutoring for a land instead of a spell, and that requirement can sometimes make the combo impossible to pull off if your hand isn't loaded.

Lightning Bolt over Skullcrack. Other than that, I don't see many win-cons. More wrath effects would be nice, such as Wrath of God, Planar Cleansing, etc. If you're willing to splash green, Reki, the History of Kamigawa will be absurd.

Thank you! Will look into finding these cards (the ones Grixis can handle though Jhoira of the Ghitu and Planar Bridge can make them all playable). Thalia's Lancers and Reki, the History of Kamigawa look like a nice addition that shouldn't be that hard to find. I already have Time of Need but i need to find more than just creatures (and I actually tried adding it to the deck as a 4C splash but it simply did not work as intended).I should look into expanding my manabase to make these things happen and that can be a problem for me.

Generally white has the best legendary support:Day of Destiny/Thalia's Lancers/Kitsune Healer/Yomiji, Who Bars the Way followed by green with Reki, the History of Kamigawa/Time of Need

There is also a of legendary lands you could consider running as they are usually better than a basic of that color.

White: Eiganjo Castle

Blue: Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Black: Shizo, Death's Storehouse

Red: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep

Green: Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

Sorry for taking so long to get to this. Overall, I think the deck is probably a bit slow for what you're trying to do? Are you trying to go with a counters theme? Or are you really wanting to push the legendary theme? I honestly think you could make a better deck by not bothering with all legendaries, which feels kind of janky, but rather just good stuff. My philosophy about life gain in edh is that it is bad haha. It's only worthwhile if you are gaining repeated utility out of it (i.e. using Phyrexian Reclamation or Erebos, God of the Dead). I also believe that signets should be added to just about every edh deck out there. A few suggestions:

Swap out for cards with "better" utility:
Merciless Eviction for Fracturing Gust
Phyrexian Arena for Read the Bones
Greater Good for Momentous Fall

Suggestions to add:

Lightning Greaves, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Rogue's Passage, Conqueror's Flail, Hero of Bladehold, Chrome Mox, Aurelia, the Warleader, Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Grave Titan, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Oracle of Mul Daya, Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Explosive Vegetation, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Selesnya Signet, Sylvan Library, Mana Crypt, Ghostway, Boros Charm, Garruk Wildspeaker, Recruiter of the Guard, Mother of Runes

Suggestions to cut:

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Thalia's Lancers, Tsabo Tavoc, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Heroes' Podium, Evolving Wilds, Genesis Wave, Harmonize, Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, See the Unwritten

If you decide to go with tokens or counters as a theme, of course the requisite Doubling Season and then a card like Assemble the Legion would be fun. Another route you could take is multiple combats.

If you add more ramp, you might be able to shave a land or two. Do you already have this deck built or is it a work in progress?

Let me know if you want me to explain why I'd cut, add, or replace something.

I am thinking of removing my Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip from my Sisay deck. Since I never look for this card. I feel it's pretty underwhelming for my build.

Now that Paradox Engine is here to stay. What is your opinion about returning Reki, the History of Kamigawa to my build? With Paradox down on the board, you could be drawing a ton of cards which you most likely couldn't tutor for?
