Sai, Master Thopterist Discussion

shixzo on Hazoret's Cult of Flame

savagetrooper - Hmmm, I haven't been keeping detailed records (and have only had the occasional commander night of late). I'd say it can usually win at least one, maybe two games per commander session - it certainly doesn't dominate the meta.

The meta among my more recent opponents is very blue/control heavy ( Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign , Sai, Master Thopterist , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage and the like). That can be quite tough for the deck (hence the relatively recent additions of Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast ). However, part of the fun for me is pulling off wins against those kind of decks with mono-red/burn strategies - if it was easy, it wouldn't be as satisfying!

In related news, I'm looking at including Bolt Bend from War of the Spark. Not bad counterspell protection with Hazoret on the field...

Hey, looks good, nice upgrade so far of the precon :)

$50 upgrade to consider (the main theme of these upgrades are cards that give you repeatable value)

Good luck with your deck.


Icbrgr on Wonkiest Standard Wins? - Any ...

2 weeks ago

I was playing a mono blue artifact/token deck revolving around Sai, Master Thopterist and Sigiled Sword of Valeron .. my opponent was playing an izzet control deck using Crackling Drake and super friends Jaya Ballard and Ral, Izzet Viceroy .... the game dragged on and on and on.... he had me beat soundly by T10ish probably yet he just kept dragging it out and filling his graveyards to I guess one shot me with is drake.... but as it turned out he ran out of cards.... so I won in the end but i know i didn't really win.

Have you considered Sai, Master Thopterist for more thopter production?

Continuing my advice...

Good budget cards ($3 or less each) with artifact strategies to consider adding:

Commander staples:

Can add all these cards for about $20. Can add all cards suggested in both comments for about $45.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cataclysmic Gearhulk
  • Fumigate
  • Glassdust Hulk
  • Tezzeret's Betrayal
  • Salvaging Station
  • Treasury Thrull
  • Tezzeret, Master of Metal
  • Spinal Embrace
  • Soulscour
  • Pentavus
  • Enigma Sphinx
  • Obelisk of Esper
  • Seer's Lantern
  • Star Compass
  • Arsenal Thresher
  • Jhoira's Familiar
  • Synod Centurion
  • Tower Gargoyle
  • Death Grasp

The majority of these suggested cuts are five/six/seven drops. Cutting these can reduce the avg. CMC or your deck a lot resulting in smoother game play. If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Maybe put in some cheap token generation. Sai, Master Thopterist would be some fliers and Tilonalli's Summoner could be ground tokens...

Thanks, 5c0r910n!

Yeah I took a break from Standard, and when I started looking at the new cards I realized that Judith would be nuts here haha :D

Is the bird thing Sai, Master Thopterist or Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle ? Judith is supposed to replace Sai, but Teshar is a part of the combo. Although I'm leaning towards making this a Grixis list, splashing white for Teshar and stuff like Revival / Revenge . What do you think?
