CaliburnAO on Rienne Recursion

Good start to a deck. Rienne looks like an interesting build, and the built-in recursion is pretty powerful. If I might suggest a few cards that work really well with her; Dauntless Escort , Saffi Eriksdotter and Qasali Pridemage are all cards that self-sacrifice with powerful effects that Rienne, Angel of Rebirth lets you re-use. These cards will help to make your board more sticky and keep Rienne around to keep chugging out that value.

Theres a ton of other multicolored creatures that have reusable effects when they enter, like Duergar Hedge-Mage , Knight of Autumn and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves . If token making is something you're interested in, then Conclave Cavalier and Trostani's Summoner can do a decent job. If you want some good aggressive finisher cards, theres Gahiji, Honored One and Knight of New Alara who can pump your board pretty nicely, as well as the liege cycle from Lorwyn.

Rienne also likes Sacrifice outlets, so Evolutionary Leap , Brion Stoutarm and some of the card-draw spells like Life's Legacy can generate some serious value.

Since the deck is three color, getting the right mana on time might be a bit of a problem. You could do with swapping some of the basics out for some tri-color lands, like Command Tower and Jungle Shrine , and using cheap fetches like Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse and Krosan Verge can help you get the lands you need as you need them. Replacing cards like Safewright Quest with things like Farseek , Kodama's Reach and Skyshroud Claim are also going to help, as you can never have enough mana in an EDH game, as we all know.

Your deck is also pretty light on removal, stuff like Swords to Plowshares , Sylvan Reclamation , Return to Dust , Generous Gift and Beast Within can get rid of troublesome creatures or permanents that threaten you or stop you winning with creatures. While they aren't flashy, sometimes you just need to get rid of that Rest in Peace before it does too much damage.

Thats my take on just some of the cards I figure could improve the deck, but I'm no expert. Play around with it and see what you like. If you find yourself struggling to cut cards, here's a list of what I feel are the weakest links in your deck, in no particular order; Chandra, Fire Artisan - You have access to better card draw and the burn shouldn't be super relevant most games. Dryad Militant , Vernadi Shieldmate , Skyknight Vanguard , Boros Swiftblade and Sunhome Guildmage all seem fairly low impact. Fatal Frenzy seems odd as your creatures aren't super large, and your commander isn't going to easily win by Commander Damage. War's Toll and Mana Web seem like filler slots, but maybe these help against your local meta?

Hopefully some of this helps, I look forward to seeing how the deck develops in the future.

I think this card is intended for the Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves EDH deck, and for that, it's awesome. I don't get why anyone is upset about it, but it's not the greatest rate for standard I guess

I have never found Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip to be a huge succes and it doesn't enable white, which means we don't have access to cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric , Tolsimir Wolfblood and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves . The closest commander I have found to this is Samut, Voice of Dissent . But it may just be a problem with the gameplan I want to go for.

You'll gain 6 and then the other Voja dies.

Each Voja token will trigger both of Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves 's abilities once, creating 4 objects on the stack.

The decision to choose which Voja you'd like to keep is a state-based action, which are done right before players have priority. So you'll actually choose a target for the Sad Voja to fight, but by the time its fight trigger resolves, it has already been put in the graveyard and won't be able to do anything.

Hi everybody! If I have on the battlefield Parallel Lives and I cast Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , I get two Voja tokens. Since those tokens are legendary, I have to choose one of them and the other dies. My questions are: 1) do I gain 3 or 6 lives?; 2) the Voja that I did not choose is going to fight with an opponent's creature before dying or not?

Quick update!

I sadly didn't have a lot of chances testing the different cards due to being ill, but I'll definitely substitute 2x Bloom Hulk for the 2x Shalai, Voice of Plenty since the Hexproof is way better than the one time ETB-Proliferate at only a loss of 1 Power.

I tried fiddling around with adding Nissa, Who Shakes the World and even Finale of Devastation and Finale of Glory to have something to pump the mana from Nissa into, but something just doesn't click right with her. As soon as I get the chance I will test more, but I just can't seem to find the right card to substitute for Nissa. My current suggestion is for anyone who can do without Arlinn, Voice of the Pack and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves to just cut them for said cards above. (Probably 2x Finale of Glory + 2x Nissa since I don't have a big creature to work with Finale of Devastation .

Thank's for the nice words, I'll follow up on that advice! Until next time!
