Creature (1)


Who doesn't love silly win conditions. How about silly win conditions that work by some miraculous turn of events?

I love them. Allow me to introduce Jalira Win Con or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bearer.

This isn't just any win con. This is M.A.D. (mutually assured destruction) win con.

How does it work you ask?

Let me introduce you to my mad M.A.D.

The idea here is to get Jalira, Master Polymorphist out and sacrifice a token. Doesn't matter which one. Then bring in Bearer of the Heavens.

Optimal time to do this is at the end of your opponents turn.

You have cards to to create sacrifical tokens. Like Dragon Fodder or Raise the Alarm.

Along with non-creature counters like Swan Song, Negate, and Stubborn Denial you can keep Jalira on the field long enough for win con. So what is win con. Here it comes.

You get Bearer on the field at the end of your opponents turn and at the beginning of your next sacrifice him. To bring out Bearer number 2. I'm sure I know what your thinking at them point.

But you would be wrong. It is at this point you cast Ajani's Presence or Gift of Immortality.

Then 'Murica happens.

Your M.A.D. becomes...

The previous Bearer's ability triggers at the end step and everything goes. Land, creatures, permanent, gone. Minus the Indestructible ones. For the instances you do run into indestructible crap you side Devouring Light.

if you pulled off this win con with gift then he wipes the field at the end of every end step. Because you can choose how triggers go on your cards you can have gift attach to Bearer before it's trigger happens resulting in Bearer dieing with gift every time and a free field every time. With Ajani you just have a 10/10 hilarity to stomp with before they can come back from 'Murica devastation.

Remember Win Con is best Con.

I get what you are trying to do, but the problem is that you can't get out Jalira, Master Polymorphist until turn 4. This slows down the whole process. If you added spells that added to your mana pool, it would help getting a faster win. Also, sometimes you are just probably not going to actually get Jalira, Master Polymorphist, and I find that a problem as well, since then nothing will trigger. Something that I think could be something to consider is adding swamp for delve. But you are definitely right about one thing... if this bomb starts the countdown, there is not stopping it.

Well I do have anticipate and dig through time for searching for cards.

May 16, 2015 12:20 a.m.

amerika00 says... #3

Which takes you time, and by that time, you could be dead.

May 16, 2015 12:31 a.m.

blong217 says... #4

True true. Though the odds of hitting a fail on drawing Jalira isn't high. Anticipate isn't expensive though. Dig through time is though. Scry lands help as well.

May 16, 2015 12:33 a.m.

amerika00 says... #5

Yeah. If you had delve/swamp, you could add a lot more cards that would help you discard, like Mind Rot.

May 16, 2015 1:14 a.m.

amerika00 says... #6

Sorry, I didn't mean to say Mind Rot, but Bitter Revelation

I could always just go with Taigam's Scheming if need be.

May 16, 2015 9:05 a.m.

Me likey

raptor77 says... #11

MagnivoreI see your question, This deck if I am not mistaken: is for fun so I wouldn't say competitiveness is an issue as much as fun, although competitive is in the tags.

blong217 says... #14

Muwahahaha. This deck destroy's all formats and play styles!

swatdog says... #15

I was about to pull off the win-con, but both bearers happened to be right next to each other and from there i couldn't do much. Maybe add a third so this doesn't happen?

May 17, 2015 2:42 p.m.

blong217 says... #16

I has win con been working for you?

May 17, 2015 3:25 p.m.

swatdog says... #17

It works at least half the time. And for half the time that it doesn't work, sometimes it does, but it is so slow that I don't count it as working

DARK_VOID says... #18

This deck....yes...just yes

May 17, 2015 10:16 p.m.

DARK_VOID says... #19

Since Jalira, Master Polymorphist only targets legendaries, you could throw in some guys like Daxos of Meletis, Anax and Cymede, Zurgo Bellstriker, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, or some God creatures to take the heat off of Jalira. That way they don't kill it immediately. But it may be tough to ditch cards for some.

May 17, 2015 10:35 p.m.

blong217 says... #20

Yeah I had thought of some legendaries and may switch some. 60% of the time it works everytime.

DerpyEfalant says... #21

Lol, I found out another win-con. Long-Lasting Game situations. :D

May 18, 2015 3:47 a.m.

blong217 says... #22

Long lasting game situations?

May 18, 2015 12:56 p.m.

DerpyEfalant says... #23

Whenever I play the deck (Online Simulators), the deck would take me about 50 turns before winning (It was a one game thing). Apparently, some people are sooo inpatient, therefore scooping and leaving me with all the enchantments in the battlefield. BTW, I'd like to suggest using fetch lands, for better chances of a Jalira, Master Polymorphist.

blong217 says... #24

Good idea...

May 18, 2015 6:06 p.m.

CheeseBro says... #25

why. Just why. this is so awesomely murica

May 19, 2015 9:28 p.m.

blong217 says... #26

So much murica it hurts so good.

Boros Charm - all your stuff survives, or Bearer gets double strike and swings for 20!

May 27, 2015 5:33 p.m.

DARK_VOID says... #28

This is a standard deck, 2npii

May 27, 2015 5:35 p.m.

2npii says... #29

So it is; I'm thinking as though the Theros block has already rotated out!

TheFoilAjani says... #30

DARK_VOID and blong217, Jalira doesn't legendaries. Only non-legendaries.

July 31, 2015 11:49 a.m.

Id say this deck is amazing

July 31, 2015 2:13 p.m.

DARK_VOID says... #32

The reason I suggested specifically legendaries was because you can fetch you're NON LEGENDARY combo piece but leave your legendaries to draw into early game. That way you can keep yourself protected until you grab your best con

July 31, 2015 2:36 p.m.

blong217 says... #33

I knew Jalria doesn't fetch legendries'. I might throw one or two in. Is Brimaz legendary?

July 31, 2015 3:51 p.m.

TheFoilAjani says... #34

But Jalira ships everything to the bottom. So why would you play mediocre Legendaries such as Anax and Cymede and Daxos of Meletis just to have them shipped to the bottom? The only reason, which is dumb, that I can think of is to have some filler cards to skip through when searching. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is justify-able just because he is strong. If you accidentally ship Brimaz to the bottom, fetch lands can help you get him back.

July 31, 2015 6:55 p.m.

blong217 says... #35

Brimaz would be good both for being stronk and the easy token creation which helps jalira.

July 31, 2015 7:14 p.m.

DARK_VOID says... #36

I know that TheFoilAjani. That's why I gave six examples in my first message

August 1, 2015 4:51 p.m.

TheFoilAjani says... #37

DARK_VOID, which one of the things I said are you addressing? The dumb reasoning to have filler? The use for fetches? The bad legendaries? Please specify.

August 1, 2015 5:09 p.m.

DARK_VOID says... #38

Nothing specific, I was just saying you don't have to use the crappy ones, I just listen all the low cmc legendaries I could think of

August 1, 2015 8:21 p.m.

Talus21 says... #39

I tried a version of this quite a while ago. You might consider Jeskai Ascendancy as an alternate win con. Just a bunch of token generation, instants, and sorceries.
