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

Probably the biggest weak point is how much spot removal you are running. Its strong because it can hurt players as well though so I don't think there is a good choice to drop it unless you wanted to play Abrade instead of Magma Spray and Hungry Flames.
There's potential to make room for 1 or 2 copies of The Locust God instead of running Saheeli Rai , along with maybe 2 copies of Favorable Winds. Take out some spot removal for Censor or extra Supreme Wills to have more draw power. Because if they remove your creatures, which you will usually only see 3-4 of in a game as the deck sits currently, you'll need to be able to find more answers.
I love the Harnessed Lightning and Glimmer of Genius synergy. Build up energy and knock out some critters all while refilling your own hand. Excellent combo piece with the Whirler Virtuoso, also does well with Favorable Winds. All energy works beautifully with 1-2 copies of Confiscation Coup if you wanted to punish an opponent with their own creature.
Just some slight mods I would look into if the current build doesn't work.
Find room for harnessed lightning maybe. But that is more for the glimmer of genius and whirler virtuoso. Good luck!

Hey, I'm glad you like it! Drake Haven is the very last resort for the deck if we fail miserably and don't draw any of our good creatures. Saheeli Rai could be moved to the sideboard but I like her for the draw fixing from the scrying making sure we get our Enigma Drake. Plus she pings the opponent for 1 killing them THAT much faster. I like Saheeli's interaction with God-Pharaoh's Gift and Combustible Gearhulk because that becomes a problem very fast if she gets to her ultimate. Plus her -2 is a 1 hit wonder Tilonalli's Skinshifter basically and I find it very amusing when the opponent realizes what happens much later than they should have. (which was when they took 12-16 damage to the face)
Also, as a note. The deck is probably around $40 and not $36 because Combustible Gearhulk isn't listed on pricings.

Splinter Twin Is banned in Modern so you can't play that.
Deck has been working very well and can do filthy turn 3 wins even sometimes.

Saheeli Rai could work pretty well. scrying and burning or creating another creature, potentially a big pummeler, and then a free fling.

deck, Seeking for serious relationship
Committed spells only
First, check out my dimir control deck.
Second, and why this post exists in the first place, I want to add red to the deck.
I want to put in Saheeli Rai to test combos with Hostage Taker. I feel like creatures my copies for a turn for free and being able to use the copies to steal and cast an enemies creatures is just too exciting not to try.
I want to add Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. He is big, he is a game winner, and honestly I think he looks cool.
So, heres what I need help with.
1.) what do I cut from the current deck?
2.) what should I add in red that would make the deck better?
3.) how do I optimize the lands with the added color?
I will likely make the changes this week and test them with friends but still play the original deck list at FNM, but next week will use the new brew.
Normally Im pretty good at the brewing process, but... you guys are a pretty awesome community... and I like your help.
Thanks ahead of time!
I would it... 10/10

ImtheRealBear: I totally agree about Galvanic Blast. The entire deck is built around artifacts, so Galvanic Blast can be even better than a bolt once I get the artifacts out. That said, what cards do you think I should cut for these suggestions? I can see maybe cutting one Panharmonicon for a Saheeli Rai, but I'm not sure what I would cut for the others. Also, what purpose would Hangarback Walker serve? I already have a creature that generates tokens, and I dont sacrifice them, so I'm not sure what Hangarback Walker would add to the deck beyond a potential heavy hitter.

UPDATE: So I loved the idea of this deck so much I built it on Xmage and played a few games. Here's what I learned:
I was honestly really underwhelmed by Saheeli Rai. Her +1 is okay, but it didn't have a very big impact because I already had a ton of card advantage. Her -2 let me down the most; it doesn't do enough to bring back a losing game and if you're winning it's just a win-more. Not to mention there's a lot of legendary creatures in this deck so half the time you're gonna be saccing the token as soon as it comes in. I would switch all 3 copies out for something like Abrade.
A card I can't recommend enough for this deck is Ripjaw raptor . Its stats are above average for a 4-drop making it great for attacking and blocking, and you can deter them from blocking or attacking into it because it provides huge card advantage. To make room, I would cut:
-Kefnet: Your 3-drop slot is already pretty crowded and I don't think he does what you want. Yes he's a 5/5 flyer for 3 but I never had 7 cards in my hand. -1 copy of Tishana: Her ability is amazing but she's sooo expensive and she almost punishes you for casting spells.-1 copy of Rashmi: Again her ability is broken but she's a do-nothing the turn she comes out and she dies to basically every removal card in the format. However, it is possible to protect her with Rishkar and her ability IS amazing so I'd keep 2 copies.
That's about all my notes. Seems like I'm being kind of harsh but I can't stress enough that I do love this deck.
