Once you have donated a few things and are drawing all of those lovely cards, use Words of War as a finisher. casting cost as requested and low CMC plus low $$ if you don't already own. Words of Wind could help clear the board, maybe even forcing end of turn discards by opponents.

Heya DrkNinja!

Pretty sweet build ya got so far, I would consider adding in more ways to find your Paradox Engine or Aetherflux. So cards like Reshape or Transmute Artifact are a real boon.

In addition, the free cast counterspells are a must when your going into cEDH formats like Force of Will and Mindbreak Trap . Other ones to consider using as well are Mental Misstep , Swan Song and Flusterstorm as they are definitely great protection as well.

For more artifact synergy the broken fast rocks are an obvious auto include that is needed as well as some enablers as well. Some enablers that can be considered are cards like Memory Jar , Chain of Vapor , Staff of Domination , Isochron Scepter , Dramatic Reversal , and Rings of Brighthearth .

For another outlet you can also use Words of Wind .

Sorry if the response seems iffy I haven't slept in about 47 or so hours xD

Hey mmcgeach. There're many subtle (but important) differences between the lists, Suasion is Bolsheviktory btw, one of the designers of Shimmer Zur, so yeah, there's many to learn from it.

Whir of Invention was scrapped in fine tunning due to being UUU, I will think about bringing it back.

I'm reluctant to add stax like Pithing Needle to my list because I want to keep the power to behave like a storm list when I'm ahead, if I would use one it would be Grafdigger's Cage .

My mana base is superior BECAUSE it runs no mountains, I'm on a High Tide list afterall, but I should add that I mitigate dramatically the risk of drawing into dead fetches by only fetching one of the duals, then all islands, in case I draw into the only G fetch I can always go for the second dual.

I think you are right about making the deck function w/o Jhoira, that's why Mind's Desire was choose in detriment of Words of Wind , that's also why I kept Rhystic Study on an adaptive storm list.

SamsWrath Thanks for the suggestions! I had Vedalken Archmage in an earlier version of this deck, but I found that I never really casted it. And since it doesn't trigger Jhoira's ability, I decided to cut it.

I've thought about adding Sensei's Divining Top to the deck a few times. I'll have to make room for it and play test to see if I like it as much as you do :-D

Words of Wind I feel is too strong for my playgroup. It's a great addition, but since I'm running Mycosynth Lattice/Darksteel Forge/Nevinyrral's Disk, I don't feel the need to add Words of Wind since it again doesn't trigger Jhoira's ability.

TheGreatSlob I also had Master of Etherium in an earlier version of this list, but it never made a meaningful impact to the games I cast it, so it was cut.

You may be able to drop a few lands--especially if you add in the KCI combo. I tried to keep these suggestions as budget as possible but, a couple of them are in the $15-$20 range.

Some spells to consider:

@Polupus yeah, I need you to pull Words of Wind off. I need it badly.

I made some updates and added an update thread. Metamorphic Alteration made the cut - awesome suggestion, many thanks!

re: breaking Words of Wind... Horn of Greed should work as a substitute for tatyova

Sensei's Divining Top could work as well since Words of Wind is a replacement effect which doesn't use the stack, and if you just choose to bounce the top, it won't go to the library when the ability resolves. All you need is to replay top and pay for the ability. You could take this even further for a complete board wipe with Mana Crypt and Alhammarret's Archive to foot the cost and just repeat until you're the only one with a board.

@Polupus I missed an important one.... Words of Wind is a card I’ve always found intriguing. I have seen it to incredible effect in a Simic Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck which functionally turns extra Exploration effect land drops into a free mass bounce spell. I’ve brainstormed ways to try to make it effective in Kami and have struggled with that simply because we don’t have easy fodder to make the effect asymmetrical.

If you find otherwise - let me know! I’m very curious!
