Seize the Day Discussion

NV_1980 on Kaalia of the Vast

3 days ago


Kaalia is an amazing commander, but because she is so powerful, she is also the primary target of every other player once she hits the battlefield. Therefore, my advice to you starts with: add some more protection in here for Kaalia :) My recommendations would be: Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn and/or Whispersilk Cloak. If you want to make things a bit more expensive, try Champion's Helm. A relatively cheap creature that can also provide some extra protection for her: Eight-and-a-Half-Tails.

Kaalia needs to appear on the battlefield asap, in order for your deck to shine. So, the second thing I would recommend is to try and increase the speed of this deck by either adding some mana rocks like Fellwar Stone, Worn Powerstone or Thran Dynamo OR add some land fetching cards like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Oreskos Explorer or if you're feeling like a big-spender: Weathered Wayfarer or Land Tax.

Once Kaalia is on the battlefield, you want her to attack as often as possible to trigger her ability multiple times per turn. So, you need some cards that will allow her to attack more than once per turn, if possible. You already have Aurelia for this. Some other options are: Seize the Day, Relentless Assault and World at War. In case you have money to spend, Aggravated Assault is also wonderful.

These are my main points of advice. I would also recommend you add some stuff that allows you to draw some extra cards each turn (like Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections) and stuff that protects Kaalia when she attacks (Dolmen Gate and Reconnaissance come to mind).

moldycrow83 on Who's Your Zadaddy (Zada Combo)

Amazing list! I've been having a similar problem to what you had and needed a change in deck styles. I stumbled upon Zada and your deck and it inspired me to make one myself.

Have you thought about Seize the Day? 4CMC, but that flashback tho... You probably won't need it for 1v1, but multiplayer perhaps? Would be fun to clobber 2-3 opponents in one turn :)

Kingdomsteel on Cheating, an Enlightened Commander

Omg, Narset. I used to have a Narset deck once. Removed the deck since I didn't want people to scoop in turn 2. I used the all-known Enter the Infinite and Omniscience combo, together with Beacon of Tomorrows.

Getting Narset out is you main purpose. You can make your ramp and color fixing as expensive (moneywise) as you want. Using every type of fetch you can helps. Using cards like Lion's Eye Diamond, Crystal Vein, Ancient Tomb, Pyretic Ritual, Simian Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt or Lotus Petal Will get you there faster aswell, but it comes at a price. Literally.

Once you get narset out, you should be able to swing with her. So haste enablers like Mass Hysteria, Fervor, Generator Servant, Hall of the Bandit Lord or Ashling's Prerogative will definitly help.

The swings are important because you want extra turns, or extra attack phases. (=EXTRA COMMANDER DAMAGE) Expropriate, Temporal Mastery, Walk the Aeons, Time Warp, Time Stretch, Relentless Assault, Waves of Aggression, Seize the Day, Fury of the Horde,...

Essentially you want to cast Omniscience with narset and an Enter the Infinite after that. Swing for 21 commander damage total and win.

"Yeah that is IF you get to cast Omniscience". Just plant it there with Long-Term Plans or use an Enlightened Tutor before you swing with Narset. Find a Long-Term Plans with a Merchant Scroll or Mystical Tutor. Or maybe if you already have an Omniscience in hand, you can use or find a Brainstorm.

Besides the winning part, you have to be able to protect yourself. Defense Grid, Grand Abolisher, Misdirection, Wipe Away, Path to Exile, Force of Will or even an Armageddon or Boom/Bust will help you save your game.

Possibility's are endless. People will be targeting you. People will delete you from facebook. In the end, it's all about the fun. Narset takes away the fun. She's mostly there for competitive play IMO.

Go get 'em tiger. You got this.

Consider dropping some lands and just tossing in some creatures or token gen to help you have a stronger field. Also, check out Seize the Day as its just a cheaper Relentless Assault.

Instead of Harrow try running Search for Tomorrow. Even though Harrow is an instant and not a sorcery compared to Search for Tomorrow you don't have to sacrifice a land as an additional cost, and turn one you can suspend it to that mana ramp turn three. Fatal Push might also be good for removal here as well. Plus some cards that let you draw. Necropotence is personally my favorite but you could also run Harmonize, Night's Whisper, and Sign in Blood. Black Sun's Zenith might also be a better choice than Toxic Deluge. World at War and Seize the Day could also help beat some opponents down.

Mandalorian on Zurgo the Life Stealer

A good Sunforger package can be really great to have access to as well since you can tutor for Temur Battle Rage, Return to Dust, Ride Down, Crackling Doom, Wear, Utter End etc... Other good instants and sorceries could include cards that give you extra combat steps with Zurgo like Seize the Day, Savage Beating, Relentless Assault

Some other good equipments for Zurgo-

Swiftfoot Boots

Tenza, Godo's Maul

Bloodforged Battle-Axe

Loxodon Warhammer

Hammer of Nazahn

Prowler's Helm
