Saheeli, the Gifted Discussion

  • Wrenn and Six is powerful, no doubt.
  • The 'walker works well in the current meta, but the format is still young.
  • There are many card combinations that work consistently due to the nature of the Oathbreaker format; many of them powerful, even amongst the lower ranked 'walkers.
  • The 'walkers in maximum-power have been assessed to have far greater latent abilities and combos, even if they are slower.
  • I was going to write more, but I felt like I was extrapolating.

  • Saheeli, the Gifted is banned according to the Oathbreaker Ban List (https://oathbreakermtg.org/banned-list/)

  • There may be some other reason pertaining to this on the website, but I can think of a couple good ones to supplement:

  • She provides a mana-cost reduction as a +1 that could be very easily abused.
  • This mana-cost reduction works with her other +1.
  • It is more than likely due to her synergizing too well with artifacts.

Unfortunately I believe Saheeli, the Gifted is already at her peek. Trying to improve upon her at this point would be adding extra layers of jank and unfairness. Some of the most absurdly broken EDH decks I've seen run her and use that horrendous secondary +1 to string together neigh-infinite turns as they amass Treasure / Clue tokens and hit face with something like a giant Banefire . It's disgusting and I don't think she can be improved upon from here.

So, second option it is!


Jarad , Deathlegion Commander

Legendary Planeswalker - Jarad

+1 Put up to the top five cards from your library into your graveyard. The next spell you cast this turn has Delve.

-4 Destroy target creature, land or enchantment. It can't be regenerated. You may then pay life equal to it's converted mana cost. If you do, return it to the battlefield under your control. (Read card theory for notes on land)

-9 You get an emblem with "Spells in your hand have Delve and cards in your graveyard have Dredge 3. You don't lose the game if you are unable to draw a card. Instead, shuffle your graveyard and hand together as your new library. Then put the top 20 cards of your library into your graveyard and draw five cards."

{Jarad, Deathlegion Commander can be your Commander.}

5


Cost mirrors original Jarad cost. Golgari wants it's resources in the graveyard, so the sooner you get this going the sooner you can win. Offset with long haul to emblem.

+1 Delve straight out of the gate. Put's fuel in the engine and allows you to break out with some massive threats. Consider the following:

-4 What's Golgari without a means of control and recursion?? ;) And let's be real: -4 + paying out 4 life for Smothering Tithe is a pretty sweet deal. And the wording is carefully chosen because lands DO NOT have a converted mana cost. So no, you won't be getting those back.

-9 I mean... Do I even need to explain?

5 So that you can -4 the turn he is played and retain him for your next turn's Delve engine. Also five starting loyalty for four specific colored mana symbols isn't that bad at all.


Let's see a Planeswalker Commander that cares about creatures with Defender that isn't just another Assault Formation + Doran, the Siege Tower .

Gidgetimer Damn, completely forgot how oathbreaker works. Was about to write something about brudiclad being the commander but oops. I'll pick out a planeswalker and add it to the description. Probably Saheeli Rai , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (but I'd have to use more noncreatures), or Saheeli, the Gifted (for free casts, leaning towards this one)

Drakorya Interesting, not sure if a duplication spell would be worth it in the zone, the costs being wracked up would not be fun just to get a single creature out.

Chhris Thanks for the suggestions! I'll check out your deck

I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

I feel like it's actually under powered for four specific colors of mana. True it is only two colors, but the casting requires specifically two of each. I think you can lower it to just and it will be fine.

I could see it printed as a Legendary Creature among the 99, rather than the +1 in a Commander set, similarly to how Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer was.

I would be a little concerned though with the increasing commander tax. Obviously, first and foremost his most applicable use is to copy spells. Copying something like a Time Walk , Savor the Moment , Time Warp , or Capture of Jingzhou will be his most powerful asset. Next, I would assume it would most likely be red-based explosive spells. Rolling Thunder , Crater's Claws , Blaze , Banefire - that kind of thing.

Alongside an Izzet deck that can produce Treasure tokens would make it just insane, especially running Saheeli, the Gifted .

I don't think he's broken, per se, but I have concerns with just how much utility you can get out of him after his 3rd casting :/

abenz419 on I need help cutting cards, ...

Yeah I feel like Ancient Stone Idol may be the worst of my big fatties, but I do like it in the meta I play in a lot. I play EDH all the time but usually its just me and my buddy so I play a lot of 1v1 and his Edgar Markov deck likes to attack. It'll regularly be 5 mana or less for me to cast it. Saheeli, the Gifted can also greatly reduce the cost as well. It wouldn't be hard to cast it for free on my turn off of her plus alone, but I can use her plus in combination with it's natural cost reduction when I attack. For now, until I pick up some needed cards like Blightsteel Colossus I would probably leave it in.

I really want to give the Journal a try here. Free artifacts every upkeep in an artifacts matters deck seems good, plus it's card draw, and a tutor so it has some utility. Even if my opponent can answer it before I get the third clue and can tutor, I'm left with 1 or 2 artifacts that draw cards. So unless they answer it the turn I play it, it never just does nothing and it's basically going to require them to have artifact removal in hand that they haven't used already on a board full of artifacts. It may be something I eventually take out, but until I get some games under my belt with this deck I'mm not sold on it being terrible here yet.

Spine of Ish Sah is another card that can be cast for free or cheap regularly with Saheeli's +1 and it can answer any permanent. Plus, off the top of my head, I can think of 7 ways to sacrifice it so I can return it to my hand. Most of which are repeatable effects.

Spin into Myth will probably become Cyclonic Rift when I'm able to get my hands on another one but for now, it's an instant speed answer than can deal with a problematic creature or even get my creatures back after they're stolen.

I don't quite understand the hate for Hour of Devastation . It's a 5 mana board wipe most of the time that will also hit any planeswalkers in play. Most effects like this cost much more in these colors (i.e. Sudden Demise or Magmaquake , or they only temporarily deal with problems (i.e. Devastation Tide or Evacuation
