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 :/

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

I recently purchased the exquisite invention precon with Saheeli, the Gifted . I'm added some cards and hopefully upgraded the deck, but currently I'm 5 cards over. I need help figuring out what to cut. If you could look over the deck and make any suggestions as to what is unnecessary and why you think so it would be a huge help. Thanks in advance.

Instant

You may exile any number of permanents you control as you cast this spell. It costs less for each permanent you exile in this way.

Take an extra turn. If this was cast during your turn, take two extra turns instead.


Saheeli, the Gifted anyone ;)

Same challenge.

Hi, I think Admiral Beckett Brass is not the best commander for a deck like this. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is probably better or Saheeli, the Gifted .

Aetherflux Reservoir would be a nice fit in the deck. It can generate a ton of life and also finish your opponents.

Hey, Ral, Izzet Viceroy is not legal as Commander in EDH. If you just want to play with your brother it is propably fine though. In EDH planeswalker must have the clause: "... can be your commander." on it. Examples: Lord Windgrace , Will Kenrith , Rowan Kenrith , Saheeli, the Gifted
