Umezawa's Jitte Discussion
4 hours ago
Hey! I found your deck because you're one of the few Kemba EDH Decks that runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I've also been working on a Kemba deck for a few months now and it's really interesting seeing the similarities and differences. If you're interested, take a look: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/puss-in-boots-kittens-in-mittens-cat-tribal-edh/
Maybe we could help each other out?I notice you run Kusari-Gama. How does it work for you? I was reluctant to run it because I was worried it might be slow. My boyfriend runs a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, which I think has influenced the speed of my deck a great deal. I'm always trying to tune it to be faster, perhaps to the detriment of my deck's performance. I don't see you running Fireshrieker which I think is a HUGE mistake. Did you know double strike will trigger equipment abilities like Sword of Fire and Ice twice? If Kemba has Fireshrieker and Umezawa's Jitte equipped, you can get four counters from a single attack instead of just two.It's cool how you're running tron lands like Urza's Tower ect. Does it work? If so, you may want to add Vesuva. One of the ways I'm getting extra mana is to run Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains so that I get double mana from each "plains" but nobody else does. Does Hour of Reckoning pay off for you? How come you don't run Cathars' Crusade? Aren't you worried about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite killing your 2/2 cats? Does Serra Ascendant pay off? Does Stonehewer Giant ever feel like a waste for you? Doesn't he get removed before you get to use him? Maybe look into Strionic Resonator it doubles the number of cats Kemba gives you! Have you considered Land Tax?
Post a response in the comments of my decklist! I'd love to "compare notes."

Yeah, there would be some crazy-powerful ones.

Sconed - Thanks for the comment! Sorry it's taken me a while to respond! I haven't really thought too much about budget options, but so far I've found a few different ones! Naturally, they may make the deck a little more slow and clunky, but that is sort of expected.
Endless Horizons in place of Land Tax ... It's still a way of guaranteeing your land drops, and it helps thin the deck a bit as well. It hurts a lot if it gets removed, and it comes down later than Land Tax normally would.
Cradle of Vitality in place of Archangel of Thune ... This is clearly a trade off in which Archangel of Thune is better, but that's the difference between the value in those cards. This still lets you get creatures bigger, and also helps with Herald of War, which is another reason for Archangel of Thune.
Semblance Anvil in place of Urza's Incubator, or any other mana ramp card ... This is definitely slower, and I personally wouldn't recommend it just because there may not be a card that you want to toss to activate it. It is certainly an option though!
Umezawa's Jitte and Sword of Light and Shadow can be replaced with just about any other equipment, though the options provided by Jitte are really awesome. The recursion provided by Sword of L&S is great, as is the protection, but it could be replaced with other hexproof things, or even Spectra Ward
Other than that, the suggestions provided by Gleeock are also pretty solid ones!

You should probably have 4 Eidolon of the Great Revel, though they are expensive. Soul-Scar Mage has also proven to be quite good in Legacy UR delver, so it almost certainly be played here too (fire a Lightning Bolt or Chain Lightning at a Gurmag Angler or Tarmogoyf). Harsh Mentor is also seeing Legacy burn play. It's very good against Umezawa's Jitte and Deathrite Shaman, 2 of you biggest problem cards. Finally, 1-2 Sulfuric Vortex is a very good idea.

I want Goblin Recruiter unbanned in Legacy. I don't think it's on anyone's radar though to have any changes.
I'm wondering what will happen with Vintage. Last update saw the restriction of Gitaxian Probe and Gush. These haven't done anything to the metagame as Mentor and MUD variants continue to dominate the format. If anything, the format got worse because archetypes outside of those two decks were hit disproportionately. I still think the problem is with Monastery Mentor. Gitaxian Probe and Gush were merely symptoms of a larger problem.
Personally, I don't think Death's Shadow is all that good. The deck is pretty glass cannon. The problem isn't the power the deck, it's that there isn't a strong control deck left in the format.
A lot of the U/R/x control lists have so many issues sideboarding against everything you just have to cut your losses and save the space, hoping you don't need a certain card in your 75. The loss of Splinter Twin and Dig Through Time really hurt the archetype. B/G/x Rock variants haven't been able to keep up much, either.
There's been sprinkles of good control cards here and there (Nahiri, the Harbinger and Fatal Push come to mind). There's just not a whole lot of catch-all answers in the format for control or card advantage engines. Maybe we need something like a Deathrite Shaman unban or Dig Through Time taken off? Artifact lands so Affinity can just race Death's Shadow even faster and keep the deck in check that way? Maybe they should just reprint Force of Will, Misdirection, or Daze in a Standard set so we have something that's a consistent Counterspell and we can eliminate the turn 4 rule?
Honestly, I hope they don't ban anything in Modern and start unbanning cards. I think we've gone in circles with the format. A lot of the No Banlist Modern tournaments have shown things are actually quite diverse. If anything, the banlist is hurting format diversity. The real problematic cards are essentially Treasure Cruise, Skullclamp, Stoneforge Mystic, Green Sun's Zenith, Blazing Shoal, Umezawa's Jitte, Sensei's Divining Top, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Hypergenesis. While other cards on the banlist may also be problematic, these are the only ones that really come to mind as being cards that should never come off.

Raving Dead is a good fit, it gives you another Quietus Spike effect and is a good blocker. If budget permits, Umezawa's Jitte is a house, you will basically get free counters with your strategy and can be used as another win con. I would also run Birds of Paradise over the other mana dorks since this is a three color deck. Courser of Kruphix is solid for top deck manipulation and give you a searchable target with Blinding Angel and Wild Pair.

I'm interested in your All Is Dust, Brushland, Cabal Coffers, Craterhoof Behemoth, Dragonlord Dromoka, Greater Good, Mesmeric Orb, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Reanimate, Rest in Peace, Stomping Ground, Thorn of Amethyst, Umezawa's Jitte, and from your standard binder: Spell Queller, Selfless Spirit, Kozilek's Return, Matter Reshaper, Scattered Groves. Also if you happen to have any Wear / Tears (4) and Ghirapur AEther Grids (2) which are under $1 so it doesn't look like you would have listed them here, I'd be interested in those as well.
