Umezawa's Jitte Discussion

On the opposite side of the coin Ive been doing a lot of Aurelia deck reviews lately, so based on my past experience heres what changes I would make. The first issue that jumped out at me is the number of 3 drops. This always becomes a problem when you run a lot of the swords, however when deck building I will often shift the swords to the 5 CMC slot visually just because that is much more inline with how they perform. Anyway with this being the case I always want to make sure my 3 CMC cards are essentially over performing because its so crowded, and the other thing is that you do want to have some number of bigger plays as the game goes later or if someone ramps hard. I recently destroyed all the tokens of Avenger of Zendikar with an Elesh Norn which was 7 drop vs 7 drop...you won't get that by running entirely 3 drops. When the game gets big, you want some ability to go big as well.
I would probably cut captain lannery storm as a result. I would add signet or talisman in its place. Combat celebrant has generally also underperformed for me so In place of that, the card you need more than anything else in this deck is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite its removal, and its team pump for a deck full of small creatures. In short its a game winner.
Depending on how winds of abandon is performing, that would most likely be the slot for generous gift/chaos warp. By running both of those I notice that glacial chasm and spore frog aren't nearly the problems they used to be for me. In general I don't love that wind's of abandon gives something back to opponents, it can be a problem sometimes, so I might go for Volcanic Offering instead since blowing up key lands or just slowing your opponents while also taking out the 2 best creatures in play of your opponents.
Next Outpost Siege has never been my favorite, Light Up the Stage is a bit more immediate, but lately Ive been really hot on Commune with Lava especially when you've got feast and famine in play since you can float mana. Commune has the ability to grab 2 early if you just need a land or you can scale X to go bigger in the late game. You'll need to play it a few times it does require a small amount of skill to get it just right, but Id go that route over outpost. Tome of Legends is a card that i am currently trying to get tested, but i never seem to draw it, however it looks very promising in Aurelia. Beyond that, I've also used Prophetic Flamespeaker in the past. It wears equipments well and will get you to look at some extra cards, and it works best in a low curve deck like this because of the nature of impulse draw.
Here are things that I very much want to add but don't have room for but you might want to consider. Blackblade Reforged it deletes players from the game, especially if you have double strike. Umezawa's Jitte its easily the most complicated equipment since its range of performance goes from does nothing up to wins the game. Neheb, the Eternal It just makes so much mana and its good on attacking and blocking also. Archangel of Thune predominantly to make your hate bears bigger and close the game quicker.
Here are some very interesting cards to think about that Ive used or have been trying to test more. Backdraft Hellkite slow but flashback on your spells. Helm of Possession Turn your 2 drops into someones consecrated sphinx or commander. Its somewhat skill intensive, but stealing other peoples stuff is absurdly powerful. You currently don't have a fog effect other than teferi's in the deck which makes me nervous, maybe its a meta call but I really like a fog that can be brought back with mist veil plains so Comeuppance or Dawn Charm depending if you value the lower CMC vs more power. Also as a nice, this deck does look a bit soft to other aggro or big stompy decks.
Next, lets talk about stax. You've got some light stax to medium stax happening in this deck. If you want to bring it to the next level here are some super nasty options. God-Pharaoh's Statue this thing makes it super hard for your opponents to cast anything and just grinds them to hault.. they won't be comboing off through this. Next, my personal favorite its very good as you get toward the Cedh side of things, is Winter Orb once again it crushes combo decks, crushes tatyova and golos style decks and other big ramp decks, and really any deck that doesn't have just tons of big creatures in play. Its very skill intensive, but the key to break parity is Feast and famine and Neheb. Next Blind Obedience its nasty, and if you draw enough cards its a win condition, plus life gain which is also relevant. If you find that other aggro or stompy decks are problem, take a look at Angelic Arbiter you basically don't lose to creature decks. Aura of Silence is also very real, sometimes a little slow but can come back with sun titan...happens occasionally.
I personally wouldn't mind seeing another protection spell in the deck. Many choices available here Eerie Interlude, Legion's Initiative Brought Back and even just Cloudshift Ephemerate bring some amount of protection but can also be used for the 3rd combat trick amongst other things.
Alright those are my thoughts for now. I am sure thats plenty to think about. Let me know if you have any questions :) -PJ, Commander Replay

Aetherflux Reservoir , Aethersphere Harvester , Prism Ring , Umezawa's Jitte , Dragon's Claw , Tablet of the Guilds , Staff of the Flame Magus , Batterskull , Loxodon Warhammer , Wurmcoil Engine , Delif's Cone , Soul Net , Sylvok Lifestaff , Basilisk Collar , Bubbling Cauldron , and Profane Memento are probably about as close as you'll get.

I would include ALL of the Sword of X and Y cycle, however those are pretty expensive so it's up to you. I would recommend Umezawa's Jitte and anything that give the doggo double strike. As for tutors, Stonehewer Giant is a good but Enlightened Tutor and Stoneforge Mystic are better but less affordable. I love this brew; great work =)

Looks good! You might like these: Not of This World , Ajani's Presence , Adamant Will , Rebuff the Wicked , Inquisitor's Flail , Umezawa's Jitte , Champion's Helm , Hunter's Insight , Hunter's Prowess , Spellseeker , Kaho, Minamo Historian , Primeval Bounty , Death's Presence , Nature's Will , Mark of Sakiko , One with Nature
I have a Naya deck that I think you might appreciate if you want to check it out: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower. It involves giving Tana, the Bloodsower double strike via Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , then an effect such as Bravado to deal exponentially increasing damage. It usually takes out everybody by turn 6 thanks to a buttload of 2-cmc ramp and side-techniques like Impact Tremors .

Fireshrieker is good to give the dogo doublestrike.
Also maybe cards like Umezawa's Jitte May be something to grab before going for the Swords and other crazy high cost stuff.
Stonehewer Giant will be a great addition since if it isn’t taken care of quickly then you can get multiple equipment tutors off it.

Surprised I haven't seen Rhystic Study mentioned already or that Rhystic was a theme in Prophecy experimenting with getting an effect cheaply or repeatably at the expense of giving your opponent a simple countermeasure of a mana tax.
I first experienced MtG in the Onslaught block, but I was too young and English is not my mother tongue, so I quickly dipped out again, having only gotten a handful of booster packs (although I kept them, including a Polluted Delta ). I came back and found new joy during the Lorwyn mini-blocks and stuck to it afterwards, but mainly as a casual player.
I have no relationship with Masques as a block and only know pieces of the sets. As such I'm largely indifferent to the set as constructed goes, but there definitely are quite a few gems between the cards. As a block, I'd say Kamigawa is more forgettable for me, as there are very few cards from that block that I have seen used in other formats - both Extended (predecessor of Modern) and in EDH/Commander. And that said even knowing that Sakura-Tribe Elder , Kodama's Reach , Sensei's Divining Top , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Azami, Lady of Scrolls , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Umezawa's Jitte were all from Kamigawa. I just don't associate Kamigawa with most of these cards.
Huh, Ghostly Prison , Gifts Ungiven , Glimpse of Nature , Heartbeat of Spring , Nature's Will , Pithing Needle , Time Stop and Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar are likewise from Kamigawa. That block really didn't stick much with me. But that's actually a substantial amount of cards used in multiple formats. I guess I just never associated them with their original printing block.
Anyway, Masques have a few interesting utility choices and I don't consider it the worst block/set. The gems are mostly utility though and not power houses nor build-arounds.

Regarding copter: Vehicles are a newer type of card. Copter was from the first set to ever include vehicles. Compare this to OG Mirrodin and Skullclamp . Equipment started in that block, and WotC had to learn about the rich interactions equipment has. They tried to weaken it by having it give creature -1 toughness. Today, we know that this is what makes the card powerful. This is true for Umezawa's Jitte as well. I mean, they even put it into a theme deck back then because they didn't properly estimate its power.
Regarding OuaT: It's an enabler. It would propably be fine if the rest of the current standard legal green cards wouldn't be as powerful as they are. That effect without hitting lands costed G in original Kamigawa in the form of Commune with Nature . As a rare, with higher printed cost and a basically narrow condition to cast it for free, it should be fine...weren't it for everybody's non-favourite Trickster Oko.
