Crow-Umbra on Triple Six, Five, Forked Tongue [Primer]

Thanks d_iros! I'd say that Karazikar and Disrupt Decorum are both meta-call inclusions, kinda similarly to how Author of Shadows was. My playgroup spans the Casual Spectrum lol, so board states can get creature heavy at times. There is a Marisi, Breaker of the Coil deck in our meta that does fairly well for that reason. I've run Disrupt Decorum in another deck to decent enough effect. In the times its been played, Disrupt Decorum had a pseudo board-wipe effect, thinned out boards, and usually bought the caster some time to assemble a combo or re-establish their board.

I think if I had to pick between the two, I'd likely cut Karazikar first. I figured the mutual draw would be incentivizing enough to keep some heat off me, and its ability to tap & Goad could help open up some lanes for my smaller attackers.

Cutting Karazikar could give Chandra, Fire Artisan a spot to land back, or even Blasphemous Act, which usually comes down for 1 mana in our games lol.

Thanks for the additional suggestions Kalkris. Sedgemoor Witch is a pretty interesting suggestion. I hadn't really considered it before. I definitely wouldn't mind a handful of Pests as chump blockers (most of the time), which could be a go-wide win-con with Chain of Smog.

I've only played Author of Shadows in a couple of the games I've played this deck so far. I think I have enough decks in my play group's meta that utilize their graveyards to make Author worth it for now. Here is a fairly up to date snapshot of the various commanders in my meta. This is our updated meta page on Moxfield (lol). It does feel a bit slow for the effect it has, so I'll consider it as a potential cut.

I'm a bit tempted to slot in Share the Spoils as a more goofy/interactive effect for some reason. I've also considered Chandra, Fire Artisan as a potential cut, but not necessarily for Share the Spoils. I think I have enough draw -impulse & otherwise - that I figured I could use the slot for another piece of interaction (or Chain of Smog).

Gideon, Resurrected

Legendary Planeswalker - Gideon

When Gideon, Resurrected is put into a graveyard from anywhere, its owner shuffles it into their library.

+2:Until end of turn, Gideon Jura becomes a 6/6 Human Soldier creature that's still a planeswalker. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to him this turn.

-1: Until your next turn, during each combat you may destroy up to one attacking creature.

-5: Return target white creature in your graveyard to the battlefield tapped.


I'd like to see a Chandra, but old card.

Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is her young, while Jaya Ballard and Jaya, Venerated Firemage.

I believe Teferi's progression was Disruptive Student, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Teferi, Time Raveler.

I'm pretty sure Chandra's Progression is Chandra, Novice Pyromancer, Chandra, Acolyte of Flame, Chandra, Roaring Flame, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Fire Artisan, Chandra, Heart of Fire.

Not 100% on the time lines of everyone, but pretty sure.

It wouldn't be an instant infinite combo, but so many cards would make it infinite: Hardened Scales, Mowu, Loyal Companion, Primal Vigor, Doubling Season, Conclave Mentor, or Branching Evolution. I'm sure more cards would be instant infinite combos.

Very broken with Dark Depths, synergy with Chandra, Fire Artisan, sagas, and any other cards where you want a specific number of counters on them.

So I took out the ill-gotten Inheritance, doom Foretold, all but mogis for creatures, even added one.

Added in 2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance, 2 Chandra, Fire Artisan, and 2 Angrath, the Flame-Chained. Still trying to put more spot removal in but dont know where yet

My best reccomendations for improving the performance of the deck is to add in more hand disruption such as Thoughtseize and Agonizing Remorse to handle answers for your threats.

I think Mogis, God of Slaughter is a really good idea to pair with your Spectacle cards, and you might want to consider an extra copy.

I'm personally not a fan of Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Forgeborn Oreads since they don't provide very much board presence and are very slow. I'd reccomend maybe replacing them with versatile damage options such as Shock and Lightning Strike.

I like Oath of Kaya but if it is in your deck you should look into putting in more planeswalkers such as Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Fire Artisan and Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

The deck is super sweet as it is but I think there's potential for it to become something especially good!

@DodoDixie I thought about putting that card (Furious Rise) in my list as well. I think it's a pretty cool card, but maybe it's just a worse Chandra, Fire Artisan or Chandra, Torch of Defiance ¯ \ _ (ツ ) _ / ¯. Anyways, I will try it out and I'll let you know how it works out for me.
