Isperia's Flying Circus of Tools

Commander / EDH Mj3913


So Soon?!?! V1.3 Update —Sept. 12, 2017

Yes, I know... we just had the V1.2 update not long ago. However I managed to acquire more new toys. So I present to you the next batch of possible changes. (Sorry, no spare Deadeye Navigator lying around)

Changes: (In - Out)

Angel of Jubilation - Thistledown Liege : The most obvious reason here is flying vs not. The added benefit is the added hate for those wishing to pay life or sacrifice for costs.

Radiant, Archangel - Gravitational Shift : I see Radiant as a finisher of sorts as well as being able to offer both offence and defense via vigilance. Shift has worked against me in the past...

Peek - Clairvoyance : Not a huge change. Was hoping to add the additional 1 but could not find anything else to pull in its place. Only difference being the immediate cantrip.

Zur's Weirding - Talent of the Telepath : Talent is great, don't get me wrong, however, Weirding fit the theme better.

Well, as always, let me know what you think. Nothing is set on stone... Happy tapping

I think the replacements you are looking to make here make good sense, and definitely should go with them. Have you thought of throwing in Deadeye Navigator? Coastal Piracy would go well with your unblockable creatures, and Rhystic Study is good in any blue deck.

I like the build. I'm always a fan when a player tries to build around some of the lesser-used mechanics in the game, and an even bigger fan when it works!

Alrighty, choices saved.

If only deadeye had a lower cmc flying version lol. My curve is pretty high as it is. Brago/mistmeadow will have to fill it's shoes. Piracy does seem nice, may have to find a spot for it, as does Study, it's just finding space for it. The only card I am iffy on right now (post recent changes) is Gravitational Shift because it has a bad habit of benefiting others too.

Thanks for the assist. And to anyone else reading the changes in the update have been made so you will have to try and come up with something else. I got faith in ya's ;) Or if you have a different opinion about it, feel free.

Yes, Deadeye Navigator has a higher CMC, but its cost to activate its ability is lower, and if you pair it with the Peregrine Drake you have, you should be able to generate infinite mana. The Mistmeadow Witch is good, but it costs more to activate its ability, and it is restricted in that the creature doesn't return to play until the end of the turn. With the Navigator, the effect happens right away, and can happen again if you have enough mana, and you should with the Drake out.

I think you could pull Gravitational Shift for Deadeye Navigator, and also maybe pull Fog Bank for Coastal Piracy or Rhystic Study. Of the two, I think Coastal Piracy will be of more value in your deck, with the amount of creatures that will likely get damage through.

You do make a good point. Will have to look to see if I have an extra navigator kicking about. And then acquire Piracy....given the new set you'd think a reprint was in order ... lol. Not usually an infinite fan... but could be fun ;)

Well, you don't have to go infinite, but if you find yourself in a tight spot, and are looking for a win...

This looks like a good deck, I've always loved decks with a lot of flying creatures. If you are looking for more counterspells you could try Counterspell or Disallow.

+1 from me!

I love it, always enjoy finding a commander I've never seen played and make it work. It's won me a few, and is still fun even if it doesn't win. Thought I had CS in here... Will have to check again... Thanks for the plus :)

Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign has been a decent addition to my Isperia deck. Its card draw that you can easily tutor and its gives you some extra value off casting your commander.
