MEWLIO on Free Big Bigs With Jhoira of the Ghitu

3 days ago

Maybe add in Mind's Eye, Mystic Remora, Overflowing Insight (to be cast for free from Jhoira), Thought Reflection, Mind Unbound, Staff of Nin and Honden of Seeing Winds for budget card draw.

Maybe if you feel like a bit of grouphug that benefits you as well and draws cards look into: Kami of the Crescent Moon, Temple Bell, Howling Mine and Font of Mythos.

You'll also want some protection from creatures and creature attacks, maybe stuff like: Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter and Propaganda.

But every deck needs some SPICE. And you have access to allsorts of spice in Red-Blue. Dominus of Fealty, Steel Hellkite, Wild Evocation, Sunbird's Invocation, Disrupt Decorum and Swarm Intelligence.

Some good removal: Arcane Denial, Chaos Warp.

AkaAkuma on Lazav | Down the Drain

Torment of Hailfire was high on my maybelist, but since I maybe want to do a bit more with discard I'll add it.

Rather than Swarm Intelligence I think i'll play primal amulet as it benefits more overall and feels a bit lighter on the mana curve.

Counter spells are very much frowned upon in my playgroup. The three added in this deck are more than I've ever added in one haha. If someone really has that play of the game, why ruin that little moment.

Lastly i'll think about planeswalkers, apart from those two Jace, Memory Adept, Liliana Vess and Liliana of the Veil looks kinda interesting also.

@Mfitch37 thank you for the two suggestions, I like both cards.

This deck is in a concept stage yet, but I wanted to build a deck around Lazav for a long time now as a commander that feels balanced to play in any game. So I'll still be throwing allot of cards around.

I have been debating on Fraying Sanity before but am concerned that I will receive to much hate from the person I curse.

If I decide to play Swarm Intelligence, then I might want to add a few more spells. Any thoughts?

Seasons Past should work better than All Suns' Dawn and Swarm Intelligence should work better than Primal Amulet  Flip. My playgroup knows to never let that one flip. I think Second Harvest is a bit too situational but Helm of the Host is one of the best new cards and it belongs here.

I need to update the list a bit, a few cards are gone or replaced.

I have some questions about Elite Arcanist and duping spells right now, but there is an insane amount of spell duping available in standard right now. It's just about finding the right mana cheats and frankly card draw and tempo stalls. I don't think it really falls on a single Burn spell so much in this case after reviewing the new stuff. It definitely can, but it is also so much easier just to blend the many spell multipliers and just go with a few cheap burns and looped combos cast in a single turn.

Torrential Gearhulk + Release to the Wind + Saheeli Rai + Saheeli's Artistry + Siren's Ruse + Flood of Recollection + Karn's Temporal Sundering + Insult / Injury + Swarm Intelligence + The Mirari Conjecture + Tilonalli's Skinshifter, etc., etc., etc....

And that's just with Izzet. Too many artifact creature/spell based duping to list. That's a lot of duping at once. I'll probably be experimenting with Living Lore + Torrential Gearhulk combos quite a bit if I ever get away from Elite Arcanist + Naban, Dean of Iteration. Fun stuff man! I can barely keep from rejoining Standard, lol.

Though there's a whole lot of Exile This Card from the Temporal and Mana Cheating cards. Guess the devs got smarter. :p

Anyways, as for this deck.

Saheeli Rai - No mana duping of creatures.

Torrential Gearhulk - Can be duped by Saheeli for free when your mana is all untapped to trigger a Release to the Wind, Cooperate, through hulk or cast an Insult on its own.

Release to the Wind can also reset your planeswalkers' loyalty counts.

Some card you can consider; Helm of the Host, Second Harvest, Seasons Past, Swarm Intelligence. The card for the helm may not show up, but clicking the link will tell you what it does.

My kess deck is more of a control style deck, using kess to reuse board wipes, until you can gain an absurd number of extra turns with spell replication and kess. But for this style of build you can still run stuff like Expropriate or Time Warp to ezmode your opponents, or even just run Comet Storm and Mana Geyser as an alternate win condition, incase you get locked out from the board. The black effects you run like Ancient Craving are questionably, for blue has boatloads of its with alot less drawbacks(phyrexian arena is fine). I like to run stuff like Primal Amulet  Flip or Swarm Intelligence,and those can literally douple yo but im a greedy boy. If you want i can upload my whole decklist so you can see it.
