Isperia's Flying Circus of Tools

Commander / EDH Mj3913


V1.1 Update —June 13, 2017

After playing this for awhile now, we come to our first update where I list off what I think isn't quite pulling it's own weight. I will try to detail the problems as best I can, if you have any questions feel free to comment.

Narset Transcendent : While the number of non creature\lands are swayed in favor of her first ability, and there are plenty of targets for her second effect, her ultimate ability makes her a target even though that is not the goal. Considering replacing with another useful flyer.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV : Again first and second ability relevant to me, the third is an unfortunate effect I can't turn off, which makes him target numero uno. Any other 'make my spells cheaper' options out there?

Mistmeadow Witch : Amazing ability, high activation cost. Cheaper alternative, or replace with another useful flyer?

Talent of the Telepath : Fun card, even won me a game once. Just not sure it fits the overall theme...

Silent Departure , and Dramatic Rescue : I'd like to replace with 'return a permanent' effects. Have some, want more.

And finally, Polymorphist's Jest : I play against a lot of +1/+1 counter types, this only serves to make them giant frogs instead of what they were. Considering second board wipe in place. (4th if you include rift and washout).

Thanks for reading, and for any suggestions you may leave. If you like it please show it with a +1. Stay tuned for further updates.

You should add some board wipe like Wrath of God or Supreme Verdict.

I am on the fence about that, I have Rift and Wash Out to return things to hand. More stuff to name w/ Isperia. I have End Hostilities, I may trade it for Verdict if I can acquire one. Still think there should be more than one 'destroy' wipe?

You should always have more then one bored wipe. Especially in blue white if something doesn't go your way and you can't counter it just wipe the whole bored.

I like always watching and aqueous form. Had a few feel bad moments where Isperia cant grt in on people and it feels bad. Whispersilk cloak might be a good card to consider shroud and unblockable. Plus white has tutors for it.

Propaganda and Norn's Annex would be decent additions to deter being attacked.

Trying to stay away from stax, my first choice of azorius commanders was Augustus, but only build ideas I could find was stax. Isperia seemed and proved to be a lot of fun. I was kinda thinking of fitting a small hugs theme as deterrence, just not sure. Right now its mostly.. Board wipe? Nope! Attacking? Bounce! Build a giant board state and swing kinda plan.

With all things though there is a space issue. I considered voltron seeing as my commander needs to attack to get its effect, just took away from everything else though. Thanks for the suggestions though, always appreciated.
