Birgi, God of Storytelling Discussion

Hey, well done on a budget for your first Commander deck. I'm having fun with Veyran with Kalamax, the Stormsire .

You have 111 cards which is too many. Cards to consider cutting to get to 100 cards:


Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buyback is the reason that Reiterate can be a infinite combo with Geyser. After copying Geyser with Reiterate you resolve the copy of Geyser first and then resolve the original Reiterate which puts it back into your hand. While the original Geyser is still on the stack cast Reiterate again to copy the original Geyser and repeat. Can make infinite storm count for Grapeshot , infinite cast of instant for Guttersnipe / Ral, Storm Conduit or infinite mana for Jaya's Immolating Inferno as win conditions.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

If you're playing Cloudstone Curio in this deck with these commanders and you aren't running Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and the 0 mana Kobolds then you're missing out on a much more practical combo win than the graveyard shenanigans with Blood Artist style effects.

With Curio in play, cast Birgi, cast Rog, cast any 1cmc red creature or a 0 mana Kobold, and then continuously bounce Rog and the other creature to generate infinite red mana off Birgi triggers. Use a final Rog cast to bounce the Birgi, cast Birgi as an artifact now. Cast any non artifact creature (you can discard cards in hand to the Horn to find a creature if needed, or if using Dockside Extortionist plus Rog you'll be able to cast Tymna) and bounce the Rog. Discard the Rog to the Horn to exile the top 2 of the library, Rog returns to the command zone. Recast Rog, bounce the extra creature, recast the extra creature and bounce the Rog, discard the Rog to exile 2 more. Rinse repeat until you draw and play the whole library for a win.

This line of play in Rog/Tymna decks is much more reliable than graveyard lines of play due to the pletora of yard hate in the format and the combo mana loop itself mostly relies on creature casts that are far less likely to be poached by blue interaction. Ranger-Captain of Eos is both a nice tutor for a Kobold and a protection piece for when you combo off and can supplement the Abolisher and Silence as protective elements.

This compliments the Impact Tremors + Cloudstone Curio lines of play as well as any 2 Kobolds also generate a win, again avoiding yard hate and most permission elements. Both of these lines of play do rely on Curio though so at least one additional non Curio related game winning line of play should be included as a back up, and for this Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong is quite ideal in terms of card slot efficiency.

I do not recommend the Blood Artist lines in this deck as they are equally card slot inefficient as the Birgi set up but far more vulnerable and significantly less useful outside of the combo, though the Kobolds are really only nice with a Skullclamp on the board. Koll, the Forgemaster + Skullclamp +any Kobold (including the commander) is a nifty little draw engine though providing 2 cards for every invested to keep you gassed up.

I'm still testing about 12-15 card slots in my build at the moment (my meta includes a lot of disruptive opposing decks keen on exiling cards so I've got one additional combo win line with the Mystic Forge + Sensei's Divining Top combo in there as well), but after a number of games the Cloudstone Curio set ups centered around Birgi and the Kobolds have proven to be ideal.

This card is just so sweet it's fun to play in every format I've seen it in and I particularly enjoy this card in Commander lately. Just what red needed to be honest. The number of cool things she enables is nearly limitless.

I've been obsessed the past few days after stumbling upon the Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip+ Cloudstone Curio + Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh + any of the old school random Kobold (or even any 1 cmc red creature) combos. Just run Rog as the "Commander" and it's a sweet all in one infinite mana and draw engine that bypasses hate effects from cards like Hullbreacher . Been jamming this combo in all sorts of color combos and it's been a lot of fun.

What cool things have you been doing with Birgi lately?

Damn, Dragon's Approach + Thrumming Stone will end a lot of games. Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip feel like the obvious commanders for this combo.

Looking good! After a few playtests, it's clear just how quickly you can assemble a small but versatile army. If I may, I have a few questions and/or recommendations for the deck. I'll start with the overarching notes.

First: why isn't there more red? It seems that you've bulked up on white and blue despite having all this red mana at your disposal. I can certainly understand the appeal when it comes to cards like Jaya's Immolating Inferno or Finale of Glory , but unless this is a dedicated combo deck bent on tutoring out a similar win con (may I suggest Comet Storm ?), I have to wonder how you're planning on making it work. If you aren't as dedicated to that, I would look into ways to turn red (or colorless!) noncreature spells into cantrips. Jori En, Ruin Diver comes to mind. While you're at it, Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and Runaway Steam-Kin , if not price-prohibitive, would be decent additions.

Second, it would seem you need a few more dedicated spirit token generators. Spirits can get expensive, but it is certainly possible to pick out Court of Grace , Geist-Honored Monk , and Promise of Bunrei .

I realize those are not red cards. Have you considered Electrostatic Field , Gelectrode , or Thermo-Alchemist ? Maybe take a look at modern Arclight Phoenix decks? I would also look up boros anthem effects, which are probably better than mono-white ones. Nobilis of War is free after 5 spirits.

Overall, I think being clear about how tall and how wide you want this deck to be will help streamline its consistency. Kykar has a lot going on; make the most of him (or her)!
