Umezawa's Jitte Discussion

BrotherofTarmogoyf, thanks for the suggestions! I like Sai too, but unfortunately it's not modern legal. It's the same reason I don't run Umezawa's Jitte in my mono black samurai deck. I will definitely consider the other suggestions, thank you!

You asked to be ruthless, so let's be then. You was warried about your BUG and Show and Tell MUs. Crucible of Worlds, Wasteland is nice combo in some decks, but not really fitting on mana hungry deck like Eldrazi Stompy. Crucible of Worlds is often do nothing, when opponent has basics or you don't have wasteland. Even when it does something it might be too slow and you might be better off by just beating with spaghetti. Sometimes it might win the game, if none of these problems occur and opponent doesn't have answer. Still I would rather go with something more synergistic with spaghetti stompy plan.

We can go down to 24 lands. Wasteland seems to provide least amount of utility, so let's go down to 3, now that we don't have Crucible of Worlds and with 24 lands we are less likely to trade Wasteland anyway.

2 slots now open in maindeck, add 2nd Umezawa's Jitte it's really good at killing small utility creatures and is the best way to beat Tarmogoyfs. Also move 1 Endbringer from side to main. I was first skeptical about Endbringer and thougt 6 mana is not worth it, but I've learnt 6 mana is well worth it. It can win against Ensnaring Bridge or Moat, can be put into play from Show and Tell to stop Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, pings annoying creatures away and when everything else fails, it can DRAW CARDS. We don't have too much card drawing luxury going.

For sideboard I would go something like this:
1 All Is Dust
4 Leyline of the Void
2 Pithing Needle
1 Endbringer
2 Ratchet Bomb
1 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
2 Warping Wail
2 Thorn of Amethyst

Leylines as gravehate, because they come down turn 0, are more difficult to answer and can shut down dredge.Damping Matrix hits our own stuf too, cots more and only does more than Pithing Needle against elves.

Hi NV_1980 First of all thanks for your upvote and your suggestions.

You do make some good sugestions, some I've had considered before, others are new to me. Out of the ones I had considered, the main reason why I didn't buy the cards is pretty much their price tag, I would love to have Batterskull, Basilisk Collar, Enlightened Tutor and Umezawa's Jitte for example, but at the moment they are out of my deck budget.

As for land ramp I have to agree with you, it can be a huge problem with this deck, at the moment the only ramp card I have in the deck is Sword of the Animist, I've considered adding either (or both) Knight of the White Orchid / Kor Cartographer as once again Extraplanar Lens and Land Tax are out of my budget.

Stonehewer Giant, Blade of Selves and Darksteel Plate are sold out at the store where I buy my cards, so I'll have to wait for those.

I didn't add Armory of Iroas because I already have Ring of Thune which has a simillar effect and also grants vigilance (with a lower equip cost).

I will have a closer look at some of the cards you've mentioned specially Cathars' Crusade, Trepanation Blade and Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip these were quite appealing to my play style.

Once again, thank you for the suggestions, and I will have a look at your decks soon.

Hi Fuklaw, I like this deck and would like to build something similar; a few comments though:

Hope this helps!

P.S.: would you mind commenting on some of my decks?

Some suggestions to maximize commander damage: Invigorate, Berserk, Might of Old Krosa, Aspect of Hydra, Overwhelming Stampede, Umezawa's Jitte

To get out important or huge other creatures easily: Natural Order, Eldritch Evolution, Birthing Pod

The deck seems good however a few things that you might want to consider are 1. some way of getting card advantage would be nice since if games go long you will just get out-valued by other decks 2. due to the influx of True-Name Nemesis you are going to want Toxic Deluge/Zealous Persecution somewhere in the 75 to be able to deal with that and 3. the sideboard could use some tweaking in my opinion especially for grindy games soo something like Umezawa's Jitte is great to help give you the edge on them

Warxuaroz on Blocking double strike + Cloudshift

2 weeks ago

I have a Kor Duelist equipped with Sword of Fire and Ice and Umezawa's Jitte. I attack. My opponent declares Kaalia of the Vast as a blocker and before the damage is dealt, Cloudshifts her. Is any damage dealt? I understand the second strike doesn't hit Kaalia as she was exiled, but does it hit the opponent?
