Saheeli Rai

Planeswalker — Saheeli

+1: Scry 1. Saheeli Rai deals 1 damage to each opponent.

-2: Create a token that's a copy of target artifact or creature you control, except it's an artifact in addition to its other types. That token gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

-7: Search your library for up to three artifact cards with different names, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

Some synergies with Mycosynth lattice :

Vandalblast : Hey look, your board is cleaned!

Blinkmoth Urn : So much mana!

Also, Saheeli Rai could be good in here?

Ceondoc on Why Standard is not as ...

We all know about the Saheeli Rai and Felidar Guardian combo that has taken over Standard at the moment, but I believe that it does not need to be banned, but rather that new ways to get around it need to be found. Take Lost Legacy. It's sort-of like a weaker Surgical Extraction, but I see nobody playing it. It seems like a really good card against those Saheeli Rai/Felidar Guardian decks, yet everyone does not think to play it. Everybody goes straight to "Ban this" and not "How can I deal with these bigger decks?" Also Disallow can stop the Saheeli trigger or the Cat itself, and Pick the Brain can help you get rid of those cards before they are even a problem, plus with a Surgical Extraction Delirium ability. Even Authority of the Consuls can help, by gaining you life whenever a Guardian comes in, so that they can't kill you without dealing with that first. So try using the less used card to your advantage before you call the format "completely broken."

I get him out by milling with Sinister Concoction and Liliana, the Last Hope or by drawing it with Cryptbreaker. Well... I'm really skeptic in adding 2 copies of Negate in my SB TBH. If Flaying Tendrils came on the curve and I'm tapped out because i keep on creating threats, then it's somewhat useless since i can't cast it. If it comes later in the game, I make sure i have a removal in my hand ready to shoot my own Haunted Dead or Relentless Dead. I might as well add 2 copies of Lost Legacy.

You don't have to go all in into milling your Prized Amalgam since you might mill a removal necessary for you to win. If my opponent has a well defended Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Saheeli Rai and i milled Ruinous Path or To the Slaughter, I'm most likely screwed.:D.

Contingency Plan seems great tbh. But i opted not to use it since I'd rather hold a removal spell than a card that's going to benefit me on the next turn. I just learned that every turn counts in our deck.

From turn 3 and onward (just make sure you have 3 lands), I tend to play on my opponent's turn. Unless i have to cast sinister concoction or liliana... or... ruinois path.

Well, it looks like you used an outdated website for what's currently in standard.

Check to see what's currently in Standard. If you're playing competitively, Mardu Vehicles/Mardu Ballista and 4-color Copycat are the decks to beat. 'Notable threats in Mardu:Walking Ballista - Pings with counters. It's actually really good removal.Heart of Kiran - A 4/4 flying vigilance for that is almost invulnerable to sorcery-speed removal.Scrapheap Scrounger - It won't stay dead.Gideon, Ally of Zendikar - Effectively a 5/5 indestructible for that is even more resistant to removal. You've got to hit it with something like Ruinous Path, ping it to death with Ballista or redirectable damage from burn spells or similar, or exile it.

Notable threats in Saheeli:Saheeli is a combo deck that uses Saheeli Rai and Felidar Guardian to create an arbitrary number of 1/4 bodies with haste. To disrupt the combo, kill Felidar Guardian or Saheeli. They cannot be on the board together at the same time or the combo will go off on the controller's next turn. The combo can be delayed using Fog effects or by reducing Saheeli to 2 or less loyalty. I do not have a lot of practical experience playing against Saheeli but it typically seems to run some removal in the form of Harnessed Lightning.

I suggest using XMage, available at, to test your deck ideas.

Thanks for the comments.

Replaced an artificer with Thopter Engineer, that haste is relevant as token aggro, which would support the first combo.

Im thinking of replacing Saheeli Rai with something else, because the lack of her infinite combo reduces her appeal.

But what could I replace to get in the 3 cards for the combo?

olag on All-In Copycat (with some value sprinkled in)

I tested out Sun Titan in some previous builds, only as a 1-of, but even then, it felt too expensive in the majority of matchups. Great value card and synergizes well with Saheeli Rai both as a value creature and a combo with 1 Saheeli in play and 1 Saheeli in the graveyard (or 2 in the graveyard). A 6 mana creature is just too expensive right now. The majority of slow matchups are blue mirrors, and resolving a 6 mana sorcery is very difficult. The other slow matchups are GBx style-decks (and sometimes Tron), and it can be great against GBx and it's largely irrelevant in the Tron matchups because that matchup isn't about value. The fact that a lot of GBx decks are the Death's Shadow versions right now, I don't even think we have enough time for it in that matchup, if it hasn't been taken by a Thoughtseize at that point in the game. I do think it could be a good card in the right meta, I just don't think its this meta.

Right on, I'm not buying anything above 5$ until the next B&R announcement. Walking Ballista, Torrential Gearhulk and Saheeli Rai are on my radar to complete my play sets, but there's no way I'm going to risk it.

The next B&R is happening April 24. Does anyone else suspect Felidar Guardian is going to get banned? If so, will that destroy the value of Saheeli Rai? Is it wise to trade Saheeli away while she still has some value?
