Saheeli, the Gifted Discussion

berryjon on Pattern Recognition #85 - Range ...

Tyrant-Thanatos: You and I certainly agree there. When I talked about Volvers a year and a half ago, I noted that Wizard's treatment of multicoloured cards has become more and more tight as time goes on. ? You're playing Artifacts. (Depala, Pilot Exemplar being an excellent example of this pidgeon-holing, and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker being another that isn't as restrictive in design, but still telling players what to play, rather than giving players the tools to build what they want.

But the worst combination is , which Wizards absolutely and stubbornly refuses to move from "Playing with Instants and Sorceries ONLY" to "Hey, Artifacts are cool!". Even their Saheeli, the Gifted deck showed they had no idea what they're doing - and the calls for the Izzet to stop being just Mad Scientists/Mages and return to the fact that they guys are the Engineers of Ravnica were ignored by Wizards. When I saw the near-admission to that by Rosewater on his Blog, my heart sank, let me tell you.

I have been running a Saheeli, the Gifted deck that consistently drops very big things very early in the game. I am looking for any cards that might be strictly better than ones I am already running, any good utility cards that might find a home, and any cards that just don't seem to fit the bill.

I run a Saheeli, the Gifted list with the same goal that is very consistent if you wanted to check it out. How does this deck usually play out?

I run a few X spells such Braingeyser and Mind Spring as they scale with Saheeli. Goblin Welder is cheaper than Trash for Treasure. It is also repeatable and can target other peoples graveyards. I think Scrap Trawler is better than Myr Retriever because it will give a similar effect to all of your artifacts so you are constantly cycling when something dies. Plus if a board wipe happens you will likely replace a few things that died earlier and be in a better position to rebuild.

Speaking of board wipes I would run Cyclonic Rift and All Is Dust. They can flat out win you the game and Saheeli can put her extra mana towards the overload cost.

Since you are running Mycosynth Lattice I would also run Darksteel Forge. It makes everything you have indestructible. Running that with Padeem, Consul of Innovation will give everything you have hexproof in addtion to indestructible.

It That Betrays is a great Mirage Mirror target. My playgroup tends to sacrifice lands first so getting 4 lands per turn from them is a hoot.

Do you get much use out of Storm the Vault? Its been a dead card in my hand evey game. I always already have the mana to drop an Eldrazi so it just seems like extra.

I almost forgot Master Transmuter can change out your Servos for Blightsteel Colossus or any other artifact you have. She can also do it in response to someone trying to kill an artifact. You can just flop it for something else in your hand in response and then drop it again the next turn.

I like the inclusion of Reality Shift. It is definitely going to find a home in my own deck.

Have fun playing! I think Saheeli is a lot better than people give her credit for.

4Lark on Izzet Brown? (2018)

Thanks for the suggestion, Xinofos! I agree, Goblin Welder's a great card, especially with so many Servo tokens whirring around. However, Welder's not the strongest choice for Izzet Brown? (2018) since the deck's not going for a Scrap Mastery approach. Additionally, there's already a fair amount of artifact recursion in the deck, i.e. Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin, and Crucible of Worlds to reuse the latter. If anything, the deck wants another big artifact creature, most likely Blightsteel Colossus, to further capitalize on Saheeli, the Gifted's ramp ability. Outside of some corner cases in the deck, Goblin Welder's not going to remove an opponent from competition, whereas a Blightsteel Colossus, hasted with Thopter Engineer and made unblockable with Whirler Rogue, will. Finally, with the deck's copy effects (Saheeli, the Gifted's ultimate; Saheeli Rai's second ability; Saheeli's Artistry), Blightsteel Colossus can take out the table.

Thanks again for taking a look at the deck, Xinofos! I appreciate your suggestion and look forward to more. :-)

Some new cards from Commander 2018 might help your deck out, especially if you want more options for creating the tokens you want to manipulate. Retrofitter Foundry, Loyal Apprentice, and Saheeli, the Gifted might all be good additions to consider. They'll at least help you make more of the tokens you want to manipulate.

Rampant Gearhulk 3RRBB Artifact Creature

Improvise (Your artifacts can help cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for {1}.)

When ~ Enters the battlefield if it was cast from hand deal 5 damage to any target.

When ~ Enters the battlefield and was not cast from hand deal damage to a creature or planeswalker equal to the amount of artifacts you control.


I hope this is the kind of thing you had in mind. I changed the second ability last minuet to not target players as I thought it would be too powerful!

I really enjoyed making this as I do love Darreti!!!! So next challenge make an Izzet gearhulk and base it around the new Saheeli, the Gifted

@DrkNinja: If there was a reason, It's Alongside Elspeth in the Starfields of Nyx (Though it was assumed Elspeth is part of the same Literature Circle in Kamigawa as Tamiyo, & Narset; so I guess She's alive after all this? It would be a HUGE surprise if Daxos knew Elspeth is a Constellation, & went directly to Nyx to free her; As an Orzhov Masked, Zombified, abomination. I dun think we'll ever know...

Anyways, Magic Story Aside, what do you think of the following:

Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: Leeches life, creates BIG tokens for a small price, & can use tokens as card advantage/Lifegain fodder.

Saheeli, the Gifted: Makes Tokens, Reduces price for cards to play, & doubles all Artifacts you control.

Garruk, Apex Predator: Kills enemy Walkers, Makes Tokens with Deathtouch, has Lifegain in the form of Killing enemy Creatures, & an opponent will be dealt 5 or so additional damage from each attacking creature, & gains Trample for leftover Damage.

Estrid, the Masked: This is where the Chain Veil Combo gets BS for real. She gives my walkers Auras with Titem Armor, & you can put as many as you need.

If you don't like Cryptolith Rite for whatever reason, just know the mana potential with a lot of tokens is potentially worth it; unless you can think of a better alternative. ;)

Saheeli, the Gifted's second +1 can potentially make Desolation Twin free to cast, but that alone might not be enough to warrant including it.

Anyways, thanks for the list - I really want to try it out! Quick question, though: do you feel the deck is still viable without the more expensive cards (e.g., Force of Will, Karn, Scion of Urza, Moxes, etc.)?
