Reki, the History of Kamigawa Discussion
2 months ago
Saw this on the deckcycle list and thought I'd comment. I play Sisay as well, a tuned competitive Paradox Engine version: Captain Sisay's Engine Chain Extravaganza. Just so you have perspective of where my advice comes from.
I do strongly recommend adding Paradox Engine to the deck as you run some of the more expensive mana rocks already, and by adding in Mox Amber and/or Mox Opal you could tutor and cast most legendary cards in your deck in one impressive turn. The Immortal Sun could easily be replaced by Paradox Engine and this deck would be much, much stronger for it. Oh, you may also want to replace one of your colorless producing lands for Inventors' Fair as it would let you find your nonlegendary artifacts during the combo turn.
That said, some recommendations to speed it up:
Jolrael does not have an ability that would warrant ever needing it. Kamahl + mana does this just straight up better, so I can't think of a reason you'd tutor it out during a game over something else, so that slot could easily become Thalia, Guardian of Thraben which halts, at least temporarily, Food Chain, Storm, and Ad Nauseam decks pretty well.
Iona and Avacyn aren't super necessary when you have Elesh Norn. Elesh Norn + Kamahl kills off your opponents lands, so they won't have the mana to cast spells to destroy your creatures, so you could easily go without these (and if you have 9 mana to cast Avacyn or Iona, then you have 8-9 mana that could be spent killing opposing lands so they can't board wipe you).
Karametra, sadly, doesn't seem to do a whole lot in this list either. Sure, she ramps you hard but it's unnecessary since Paradox Engine is just that much better of an... engine.
Removing the aforementioned 3 cards opens up some slots. Mox Opal and Mox Amber could take 2 of those slots, and Selvala, Explorer Returned could take the last. The reason for this is because with Sisay and Paradox Engine out, Selvala + Thousand Year Elixir + Green Sun's Zenith will let you draw your opponents out while you win. You run 23 legendary cards, of which at least 5 of these will be on field (Sisay, Engine, Mox Opal and Amber, and Selvala herself). So you tutor and cast Dromoka, so no one can cast spells on your turn, and then begin drawing everyone cards because for every one card you cast, you draw 2 more. Sisay lets you tutor 18 legendary cards, and then you'll draw 36 cards on top of it, meaning you can't fizzle as you'll always have spells to play to untap via Paradox Engine. Once you've exhausted your library of cards, you simply cast Green Sun's Zenith, fail to find, it gets 'shuffled' in (it's the only card in your library now), and you just tap Selvala to reveal, get G, draw the GSZ, and repeat the process while everyone else will eventually deck out. If someone has Abundance or something, no big deal, you have Urza's Ruinous Blast to exile it then draw them out anyway lol.
Anyway, explaining the Selvala, Explorer combo takes a bit but it works pretty well (it's one of the primary win conditions in my own Sisay deck. I've also been toying around with Sisay + Engine + Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Cloudstone Curio, and Blind Obedience to win, though that one isn't really necessary. My backup win condition is Kamahl + Elesh Norn and I just turn the crazy mana production my deck does into murdering people's mana sources so they can't win, and then I beat them down with hard to answer hate bears.
Miren, the Moaning Well would be something you could tutor with Sisay when you're preparing to go off the following turn to get rid of Gaddock Teeg, Eidolon of Rhetoric, etc.. It could be slotted in pretty easily over Gavony Township which doesn't seem that useful here.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa let's you draw a card whenever you play a planeswalker. Just to be funny I have it and Archmage Ascension, so whenever I have Tamiyo, Field Researcher's emblem, I freecast all of my planeswalkers, oaths and The Chain Veil

From Mtg Stocks:
Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper: Was 50 cents. Spiked to $19, the dropped to about $10, where it's at now.
Reki, the History of Kamigawa went from $5 to $14, then dropped to ~$10
Both of those are because of the new legendary planeswalker rule.

PhotogenicParasympathetic: I'm def gonna play Reki, the History of Kamigawa soon as I find the one I have but I dunno about the others. Yomiji, Who Bars the Way just costs too much and the others don't really seem to do enough for me personally.
