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.

Saheeli Rai Discussion

Garchomp98 on Annoying artifact deck

If pissing off people is the purpose you should have Saheeli Rai as a commander wth the respective dual lands to cast her. Other creatures should be mostly colorless. With Saheeli's -7 bring Naked Singularity in along with let's say Akroma's Memorial and Blightsteel Colossus and bingo.

sledge1048 on Temur Enigma Drake

2 days ago

I saw an awesome deck with this idea in mind. I think enigma drake was the only creature, and he ran; Kozilek's Return, and Radiant Flames for removal, Commencement of Festivities, and Haze of Pollen for staying alive (obviously), Take Inventory, and Cathartic Reunion for card draw. He also utilized Dispel for combo protection. Expedite was awesome with the drake because he could swing, then Fling dealing huge damage. The only other changes were Grapple with the Past the new Nissa, and Saheeli Rai. I know thats a lot of suggestions, but I think it would be awesome to build this deck. Pretty cheap too.

boneknitter on Would Contagion Clasp's "enters the ...

3 days ago

If I have both Saheeli Rai and Contagion Clasp on the battlefield, if I used the second ability of Saheeli Rai to copy Contagion Clasp, would its "enters the battlefield" ability trigger, allowing me to place a -1/-1 counter on another creature? I realize I'm copying an artifact already on the field, but the copy isn't on the field, so I would think it would trigger again.

Nice deck! Superfriends are my favorite builds, though I'm a Narset player myself.

Here goes:

Oath of Nissa is a must!

Why no The Chain Veil?

Contagion Engine has worked wonders for me in my Narset deck.

Saheeli Rai is a good walker, even if your deck isn't artifact heavy.

Cascading Cataracts for mana fixing AND points for flavor!

Aqueous Form for getting your commander to punch through and some helpful scrying before you cascade.

As Foretold can't hurt, and if you add more proliferation it becomes amazing.

Finally, with a superfriends theme, more proliferation effects always help, and with a low creature count, boardwipes hurt your opponents way more than you.

LeaPlath thanks for the input! I knew this deck really lacked direction going in, which is why I put it up for help. I'm fairly new to constructing a deck so I wanted to get it under the eyes of people who are more experienced at it. The three foundation cards are Isochron Scepter, Silence, and Grand Abolisher. The initial idea was to counter a spell heavy control deck that constantly threw out counter spells. Getting out Grand Abolisher provides a safety bubble to cast spells within my turn.

With what you mentioned about trying to rush them out, do you think it would be best to drop Leyline of Sanctity and Privileged Position?

Also with this deck being on the artifacty side, you think it would be better suited to go more artifacts and add in a Darksteel Forge? With that in mind I could swap out Elspeth, Knight-Errant for Saheeli Rai and/or Tezzeret the Seeker to help get things out onto the battlefield.

Any and all suggestions are welcome.

"Hey! I found your Mizzix list and really liked it, trying to build my own and will definitely take some inspiration from yours! I was wondering how it performs? Fun? Does it win? Does it run into issues of Mizzix keeps getting killed? Thanks!"

khayoz I'm glad you enjoy the best guild. All hail Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius.

Some things to keep in mind about my list:

  • My group is about "Casual fun". Meaning I've avoided things like combos that take 15min during my turn. Extra turns. Ect.

  • We try to keep our powerlevel/budget similar.

  • A lot of the deck is focused more on Flavor / doing cool, but not necessarily good things. Saheeli Rai and Chandra, Torch of Defiance are in the list just because I pulled them and went "These planeswalkers have red in them. -GASSSSppp-". Whiles sometimes I get really hilarious things like copying an Aetherflux Reservoir with Saheeli and then deathstaring my friends. Most of my wins are political.

  • "I was wondering how it performs?" / "Does it win?" - My playgroup loves creatures. Elf tribal. Big eldrazi ramp decks. Those sort of things, so most of me staying alive is political or me getting chump blockers from my token generators (or an early propaganda). My deck use to be a very ghetto storm-ish combo that ended with me taking 25+min and grapeshotting everyone for twice their health. But that wasn't very fun for anyone.

Now the deck is pretty much: Control the board. Be political (always keep some blue untapped). The amount of times I've had my friends go "Dude if you don't counter this, I won't attack you next turn". When I haven't drawn a counterspell all game is getting pretty high. Other than that it's just protecting mizzixs so your control/card draw racks up more experience counters. Then it's a matter of, do I have enough to burn someone with with a "X" spell like Banefire. I don't know if i'd call it competitive in the slightest.

  • "Fun?" - I love it. Red/Blue was the first color combination outside of mono-red I really wanted to build. I started the deck off with the pre-build mizzixs. Actually switched to Jori En, Ruin Diver as commander for a while (lower threat, less focus on me). Then I sort of figured out the reason I got focused a lot was because of how long my turns took. I play this deck along side my goblin tribal, so when I have days where I want to be the reactive player I play this. Sit back and watch how things play out and just when your opponent thinks they are about to win, Aethersnatch their 40/40 Lifeblood Hydra, use it to discourage being attacked then kill everyone in one turn with fire.

  • "Does it run into issues of Mizzix keeps getting killed?" - YES! Mizzixs in my group is almost never directly killed. Usually it's some board wipe. Make it clear that if they mess with Mizzixs you're going to spend the rest of the game ruining them. Counter everything they play. Bounce/wipe their board. Light their commander on fire for 30 damage just to send a message. If Mizzixs isn't able to stay out, or you're unable to rack up experience counters with her, you're just a control/political deck that hopes you're left alone till you can steal something important or do something crazy without Mizzixs.

Some fun combos:

  • Mizzix's Mastery + Metallurgic Summonings.

  • Any big burn spell + Metallurgic Summonings, Then you Saheeli Rai -2 to copy the construct and give it haste. When you cast an X spell the CMC is what you declare as it's cast. So burning someone for 20 damage, then hitting them with a 20/20 construct with haste is always fun.

  • Rite of Replication + a lot of things.. Guttersnipe is a personal favorite. Every spell you cast burns everyone not you for 12 damage. It's flexible too though, depending on what your opponents have.

  • Radiate is an older card but VERY fun! When you use it on an "X" spell, the copies have the same "X" value. In addition you choose when each copies resolves. So you can Radiate an X spell, target yourself, copy it targeting each other player. Meaning the damage dealt to you resolves last (if it's lethal you win). Also things like Radiate + Rapid Hybridization turns every creature on the board into lizards. Also if you're just straight screweeedd... You can Radiate + Scour from Existence exiling literally everything on the board. Radiate + Chaos Warp is just fun but takes a long time and might piss your group off.

Things I'm planning on doing to the deck in the future:

  • Adding As Foretold, one of my friends in our playgroup sent me a copy he traded for. Very excited to try it out!

  • Possibly changing the win condition. My groups slowly increasing it's power level so I maybe be able to change the win condition to something more consistent than "X" spells.

Thank you for your kind words! I've had a not so stellar past couple of weeks and it made me smile. Enjoyed having some coffee and babbling about magic. =) Have a wonderful day.

Oh, you don't have to sell me on Whirler Virtuoso. It's a really strong card if I have the other pieces, but it's generally weaker than Architect of the Untamed and Aethersphere Harvester. It's in the sideboard, but only because I want to make sure I'm in a slow enough matchup before I play it.

What you said about not messing with blue mana would usually be correct, but in all of my playtesting, I haven't really had any trouble casting any of my spells. If it ever does get too rough, though, I'll look into using Spire of Industry.

Gonti's Aether Heart certainly does go infinite with Virtuouso. Saheeli Rai is a little weird, but it costs 3 less mana than Heart does and the ult is a little cheeky for this deck in particular (though you'd probably only ever want to use the -2 ability). I'm currently looking in to testing Tezzeret the Schemer in her place, but Gonti's Aether Heart may make it's way into the sideboard with Whirler Virtuoso.

Thanks for the suggestions!
