Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Jalira budget (30$ deck)

3 weeks ago

Looks pretty great; I built a Jalira list myself recently, and she's an absolute blast to play. I'd swap out Tromokratis and Lorthos, the Tidemaker since you actually can't flip them with Jalira (she specifies nonlegendary). I suggest including Inkwell Leviathan as a replacement beater and Talrand, Sky Summoner as an additional token generator. If you want other big creature budget ideas Pathrazer of Ulamog, Frost Titan, Stormsurge Kraken, Artisan of Kozilek, and Deep-Sea Kraken are all pretty cheap.

Definitely recommend some board clears to help stabilize yourself into the lategame so you can actually get the big dudes out. Whelming Wave, Engulf the Shore, and Crush of Tentacles are all pretty good in this respect.

There's also some cheap lands that can make tokens for you to sacrifice lategame to make sure you don't run out of gas; Foundry of the Consuls, Spawning Bed, and Cradle of the Accursed.

I'm gonna link my build here in case you ever want to go above $30 as your budget; don't worry, there's nothing crazy expensive in here except for the Blightsteel Colossus I opened in a booster pack back in the day: Jalira Big Dumb Beaters EDH

Engulf the Shore or Whelming Wave since it has pretty much the same condition, but isn't reliant on lands that this deck often overlooks?

The first deck I ever built was actually a changeling super tribal deck. So I love your deck here! For some suggestions: I would take out Eye Gouge for Misery Charm. Same cost, same effect in this deck + additional options. Lovisa Coldeyes will give a nice boost and keyword. Seahunter, Moggcatcher, and Skyshroud Poacher all do the same thing, but I think at least one would be a good addition. Consider some of the other "Warchief" lords from Scourge. I see that you already have Mistform Warchief in here, but the others could be good too, especially if there are other non-changeling cards that you want to cast for cheaper in the deck. Didgeridoo to cheat your dudes in to play. Whelming Wave and Quest for Ula's Temple would be good. Kentaro, the Smiling Cat to use any color of mana to pay for creatures. Swarmyard is good but the card is a little expensive. Coalition Flag is just a funny card to use. Rashida Scalebane is a good assassin. And maybe even Borderland Behemoth for a big-ass finisher. If you want more tribal tidbits try either of these 2 Tribal Resources. Anyway, +1 from me, hope some of these suggestions were helpful!

Avulth on Jhoira of the Ghitu commander

Is Flamekin Harbinger just for Guile? If so, have you found that to be worth doing most of the time? I play Jhoira a lot and one thing that I have found is that it's tough to be as efficient as your opponents. Expensive rocks will achieve this, as well as more extra turn spells. Another route is to go for more deck manipulation. You have Serum Visions and Preordain, but could also go for Brainstorm, Preordain, Fact or Fiction, Impulse, or even Telling Time if you're digging really deep. You can also embrace the long-game and go for tempo effects. My favorites there are Kederekt Leviathan, Wash Out, and Whelming Wave.

On a budget, it might be worth adding some strong tempo cards. Kederekt Leviathan, Wash Out, Whelming Wave.

Avulth on Jhoira, Big Creatures

My advice would be to cut down the creatures that you're only planning on casting with Jhoira out and that can't win the game on their own. Examples of this are Tidespout Tyrant or Breaker of Armies. They're strong cards but if you need to suspend them with something else they become much too clunky. I also want to echo jon_hill987's board wipe suggestions, although Curse of the Swine could still be strong removal on a budget. You could also look into ways to protect the board while you get yourself going, because this isn't the fastest deck. Options here include Wash Out and Whelming Wave. If you're already running Steam Augury, it's probably worth considering Fact or Fiction. Finally, it doesn't look like you're running enough non-creatures to justify Arcane Melee. It might just make your match-up with more specialized control decks even worse.

I used to run a fun budget version of my Jhoira deck, and some good cheap options that look like they fit what you're doing here are Wash Out, Whelming Wave, and Treasure Cruise.

Avulth on Time Is On My Side - Jhoira $40 Budget Suspension

4 months ago

Crystal Vein is a one-time acceleration option that I would consider adding. Wash Out and Whelming Wave are cheap tempo options if your playgroup is heavy on the creatures. All-round impressive deck for $40!
