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

Snydog17 on Very Low Budget Improvise Blue Control

Reverse Engineer is an extremely powerful card, and you should probably be running at lest 3 copies mainboard. Negate seems underwhelming, except that it can counter a high percentage of meta cards, such as Heart of Kiran and Saheeli Rai.

Investigate cards such as Jace's Scrutiny and Press for Answers can shut down a creature for a turn and provide you with another artifact.

If you want to splash and upgrade, black would probably be the best control color. Battle at the Bridge is an Improvise Death Wind. Black also offers Noxious Gearhulk, and Fatal Push as more expensive cards that could fit into this archetype.

I feel that Terrarion and Explosive Apparatus are pretty underpowered, so Glassblower's Puzzleknot is a good artifact that you can tap to Improvise. Merchant's Dockhand is a good early artifact that can improvise and has lategame function.

Metalwork Colossus could be a one of for an endgame, if you wish, as its fairly cheap.

I hope that helps you with your deckbuilding.

Just looking for some Herald of Anguish. I have a Saheeli Rai a Polluted Delta and a Bloodstained Mire. Might have other things laying around too.

There's a 6 point life difference between them tho, and Unlicensed Disintegration kills both Felidar Guardian and Saheeli Rai in one go. Any deck that can should definitely run the playset.

No, this won't work. If all of a spell or ability's targets go missing or otherwise become illegal before it starts resolving, then the spell/ability will automatically get countered and will have no effect. In your example Saheeli Rai's ability will get countered and you won't get a copy of Gonti's Aether Heart.

Does Saheeli Rai's -2 work with Gonti's Aether Heart? Would i be able to copy Gonti's Aether Heart with Saheeli Rai's ability and then while her ability is on the stack use Gonti's Aether Heart's ability to exile it and get another turn and then when everything resolves still have the copied Gonti's Aether Heart on the field?? And then, if so, would i be able to take 2 extra turns if i had the energy available to exile the copied one?

I'll think about the Saheeli Rai. She's fairly expensive and I'm not sure that I want to rely on an infinite combo like that. I might though! I've been keeping it in the back of my head! Might get rid of Chandra and put Saheeli in her place! Thanks!

If you're worried about the Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian combo, Shock should be your go-to. You might also consider Brutal Expulsion, though it is pretty mana intensive. You can bounce a creature and get rid of Saheeli Rai at the same time. It's also useful against Mardu Vehicles since it can exile Scrapheap Scrounger and bounce a crewed vehicle.

Interesting that you've taken Intet down a Dragon-deck path, instead of going with a more traditional dragon commander like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund or Scion of the Ur-Dragon. I can see the benefit of using her to cheat your creatures out for just three mana.

There's a lot of potential here, but it all depends on how much money you're willing to invest to improve the deck. I have a couple of creatures to suggest that might improve your deck: Dragon Broodmother (she's pricey, though) and Savage Ventmaw. Ventmaw and Hellkite Charger have their own infinite combat combos, by the way. Ventmaw goes infinite with Aggravated Assault creating infinite mana in the process, and Hellkite Charger goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine while also producing infinite mana so long as you have at least 8 mana available through lands. If you object to using infinite combos, I appologize, but I want you to be aware that they exist. As for cards that can leave the deck, you only have 10 sorceries, so unless you really think you get a lot of value out of it, Hypersonic Dragon might not have a place here. I also don't see the purpose of Dack's Duplicate in the context of this deck.

Since you have so many dragons, you could also include some tribal stuff and some other banner effects that could help. Just to name a few, I know of Shared Animosity, Crucible of Fire, Sight of the Scalelords, and Door of Destinies. With the high number of creatures you have, you can also run Lurking Predators; that will make your opponents think twice before they cast spells.

There isn't much here to synergize with Intet herself so that she can be more consistent. To do so, we're looking for cards that can protect Intet and manipulate what she exiles off the top of the library. Unfortunately, doing this also requires some money... I'll give you the list and see what you think: Sensei's Divining Top, Sigiled Starfish, Soothsaying, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Saheeli Rai, Stormcaller of Keranos, Index, Brainstorm, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, and Clout of the Dominus.

I have a Karrthus Dragon Tribal deck of my own that you can refer to for inspiration. It's Thunder of Dragons. I'm also contstructing an Intet deck with a different strategy, which you can find with this link: Do Dragons Dream of Blazing Sheep?
