Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice Discussion

So just to pull everyone's answers together:

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captains's ability is an on cast trigger, whereas Panharmonicon 's ability is a replacement effect which specifically deals with enter the battlefield. This means that you would not draw as additional card from Jhoira's ability as these two effects do not interact with each other.

As Rzepkanut: pointed out, Strionic Resonator can be used to copy Jhoira's triggered ability while it is on the stack. Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice will not be able to copy Johira's ability (unless you make Jhoira into an artifact creature) since the source of the ability comes from a Jhoira herself, not the artifact being cast.

I think Strionic Resonator and Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice are the only permanents that can copy triggered ablilites like Jhoira's currently.

Thanks for the suggestions! I do need to add in Rings of Brighthearth . I'll most likely replace Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice with it.

I've purposely not gone down a large token route. I definitely like having some but I just don't want this deck to be primarily token themed. Which without the token theme that does lower the value of sack outlets like Krark-Clan Ironworks some but I might play around with it to see how it goes.

Untapping is certainly fun but I'm not totally confident in how reliably I can pull it off. Grim Monolith just isn't quite in my price range right now but Mana Vault would definitely be something I take out another mana rock for.

No, it doesn't. It's kind of like a pushed Commander set, as in it takes cards and characters from history and puts them on paper for the first time. In Commander 2018, we got Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice , and Lord Windgrace . In Modern Horizons, we FINALLY have Urza and Serra, as well as another Sisay. It's a callback set, not a new storyline.

Have you considered running Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice as the Commander? You're running a ton of artifacts, and generating more value off of them might make it worthwhile. Vedalken Humiliator can be great for helping to push combat damage through.

Update: Added even more to the Maybeboard. I actually wanted this deck to be better than ever now. What should I cut for some incredible stuff in the Maybeboard? Even the new Kaya seems awesome. Though I wish there was an option for activated abilities for all opponents as targets; Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast was slammed each time, & Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice didn't stand a chance. Even cards that copy things are REKT. I just want some ideas there... I personally am stumped. Suggestions are welcome BTW.

Potential cuts:

Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice feels slow/ like it doesnt have many great targets

Storm the Vault  Flip 4 mana Tolarian Academy basically

Mindslaver makes the table target me more than usual and only kinda deals with one opponent since I don't think I have an infinite recursion unless I have infinite mana and then I can usually win in other ways

Padeem, Consul of Innovation seems too conditional for one card per turn

Paradox Engine feels like a win more card
