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.
Which takes you time, and by that time, you could be dead.
May 16, 2015 12:31 a.m.
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.
Yeah. If you had delve/swamp, you could add a lot more cards that would help you discard, like Mind Rot.

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

What are the tournament results of this deck? Does it beat metagame items?
May 16, 2015 9:05 a.m.
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.
May 16, 2015 10:40 a.m.
Muwahahaha. This deck destroy's all formats and play styles!

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.
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

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.
Yeah I had thought of some legendaries and may switch some. 60% of the time it works everytime.
May 17, 2015 11:12 p.m.
Lol, I found out another win-con. Long-Lasting Game situations. :D
May 18, 2015 3:47 a.m.
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.
May 18, 2015 5:49 p.m.
Boros Charm - all your stuff survives, or Bearer gets double strike and swings for 20!
May 27, 2015 5:33 p.m.
So it is; I'm thinking as though the Theros block has already rotated out!

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.
I knew Jalria doesn't fetch legendries'. I might throw one or two in. Is Brimaz legendary?
July 31, 2015 3:51 p.m.
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.
Brimaz would be good both for being stronk and the easy token creation which helps jalira.
July 31, 2015 7:14 p.m.
I know that TheFoilAjani. That's why I gave six examples in my first message
August 1, 2015 4:51 p.m.
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.
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.
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.
