When this enters the battlefield, draw three cards.
: Gain three mana of any one colour.
Whenever one or more creatures an opponent controls attacks you and isn't blocked, that player draws three cards and gains control of this. Untap it.

A bunch of card-draw cards you will want to note for any future shake-ups:
Moldervine Reclamation, Dark Prophecy, Species Specialist, Skullclamp, Village Rites, Deadly Dispute, Liliana, Dreadhorde General,
Collective Unconscious, Shamanic Revelation, Ohran Frostfang, Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Culling Dais
Colossal Majesty, Phyrexian Reclamation, Phyrexian Arena, Slate of Ancestry, Herald's Horn,
Greed, Erebos, God of the Dead,
Mask of Griselbrand, Fecundity, Guardian Project, Idol of Oblivion, Coveted Jewel, The Deck of Many Things
Painful Truths, Harmonize, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Reforge the Soul, Wheel of Misfortune,
Damnable Pact, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Syphon Mind, Minions' Murmurs, Necrologia,
Return of the Wildspeaker, Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise, Peer into the Abyss
I would skew toward permanents (for Kodama) and higher mana values (for Vial-Smasher)
NTakamura on Coveted Jewel deck ideas

I want to build a deck around Coveted Jewel sort of like a king of the hill type theme. Outside of Monarch how would you build this deck? Want to get some ideas going.
Niko9 on We've Been Duped!

Awesome deck! And one weird thought, and no idea how well it would work, but what do you think about Lifeline? You can't bring back the tokens, but it seems like you will always have a duped creature on board and would free you up to do things like Scrap Trawler and Ashnods alter loops.
Also, not sure how relevant it is to your meta, but I feel like cards like Relic of Progenitus hit graveyard decks really hard if you are duplicating them turn to turn.
Oh, and Leyline Tyrant might be decent at helping you save red mana from duped Coveted Jewel or something. I really like the tyrant in general, because it lets you just tap out on red before your turn and battery up some mana, and then always has fun interactions too.
Again, such a cool deck. Makes me want to give this commander a try : )
Triton on Need ideas for mishra
1 month ago
Mishra is a ton of fun! The incremental value he provides is insane, and abusing/copying his trigger makes him unstoppable!
I tend to focus on artifact EtBs, LtBs, and sacrificing the Warforms for card advantage.
Reaver Titan is an insane finisher
Coveted Jewel is super fun to loop, feels like cheating with how much mana and cards you get out of looping this.
Stubborn Denial protects Mishra when he hits the board.
Here's my decklist for inspiration:

@FireMind42: Yeah in that case, you'll want to go for Underworld Breach or Paradoxical Outcome (or something weird with both). I'd lean more towards Paradoxical Outcome because it lends itself better to straight U/R Storm. Not to mention, it opens up Displacer Kitten + Coveted Jewel shenanigans. Then you won't have to rely on rituals so much (Desperate Ritual, Goblin Electromancer, and Seething Song are especially awkward). You can then fit more artifact mana and draw spells.
You'll still want Bolas's Citadel because you're never going to actually spend black mana to cast it and the card is just the nuts in Storm. Memory Jar is always fun with Hullbreacher and Narset, Parter of Veils, but Bolas's Citadel is like Yawgmoth's Will and Yawgmoth's Bargain in one card that can be Tinker'd for (especially with Sensei's Divining Top, Brainstorm, and Ponder). You'll still need Sphinx of the Steel Wind in your sideboard, which is another card you're never going to actually cast.
Since you don't want Monastery Mentor, you'll have to get by with Laelia, the Blade Reforged. Sometimes you'll want to Grapeshot. Sometimes you'll want to Brain Freeze. Sometimes you'll want to Empty the Warrens. Other times, you need something that can get big quick and an easy way to do that is Laelia, the Blade Reforged, Treasure Cruise, and Dig Through Time. She's mostly for Underworld Breach, but I'm not sure you'll need that with Paradoxical Outcome.
I also don't know how I forgot to mention Mind's Desire in my original post. That's the reason to play pure U/R Storm in Vintage LOL. Personal Tutor may also have a potential spot somewhere in this list. It grabs Tinker, Grapeshot, Time Walk, Mind's Desire, and draw 7s. I'd even consider it over the second copies of Past in Flames and Grapeshot.

well first things first im annoyed that i forgot about the existence of Silverbluff Bridge when i was building this deck lol so thanks for that reminder.
I think you and I are on our own island when it comes to Coveted Jewel... i also liked that card and though it looked fun/neat but the internet/forums said it was the first thing to cut because its bad to encourage people attacking you... idk i think its neat and am open to putting it back in.... i also like Scrabbling Claws too; I only cut it because it is a unique effect compared to the other 99 cards.... and Mirrorworks/Mimic Vat were also just tough things i cut for this prototype list... i woulnt be surprised or offended if they found there way back in here.

Just took a quick look at the base precon list, you've taken out a couple cards that are pretty fun.
Coveted Jewel is one. Gives some intense draw and can be shared around the table. Can always get it back if you swing
Endless Atlas Looks decent once you up your basic count. Generally with an Izzet deck you want to leave a lot of mana open for counterspells and interaction on your opponent's turn. This is a good way to convert that into draw if you don't do interaction
Mimic Vat is very good. Reviving creatures is great and it snuffs any stealing effects that happen when a card hits the graveyard (Looking at you Marchesa, the Black Rose)
Mirrorworks is 10/10
Prototype Portal is also pretty good.
Scrabbling Claws Targeted graveyard removal for 1 mana? yes please. Plus, if you make copies you can exile many cards a turn
Looks like you've taken out a lot of creature-copying cards. I would slot those back in if I were you. It'll help a ton to have extra bodies/copies of artifacts to tap later for mana instead of a few extra mana rocks.
I think you may want to go back to basics and rethink your strategy with this deck. Looks like the precon is very creature-focussed and you've removed a lot of interaction with that focus. Creatures are where artifact decks shine! Artifact cloning is your friend with this sort of deck, but make sure you have decent creatures to clone.
DreadKhan on Thantis the Warweaver

For Clackbridge, ymmv but I felt like mentioning that I've been burnt by it lots of times. I'm sure there are metas where it's a much better card, where people consistently have nothing they want to sacrifice, in my experience I was giving my opponent a free sac outlet every turn that also turned off my 8/8, which felt legit bad.
I use Deathtouch/Trample in my OG Multani deck, it's not especially rare for him to swing as a 30/30 vs the first opponent I'm going to eliminate, those two together usually means they can't block enough of his power to survive. Having both on an 8/8 is fine, but it's really great when you can get over 20 power with some consistency, I could see Grismold achieving that by the time you're ready to eliminate someone.
My issue with Sunder Shaman is that there are so, so many better ways to remove artifacts and enchantments in Jund, and most of them aren't RRGG to cast, an officially awkward to cast spell. I know he's got Green here, but I remember trying to make Kaya's Wrath work in an Esper deck. It proved consistently impossible to cast, and when I could it held up other stuff because it's just too colour intensive. Something like Kogla, the Titan Ape is probably many times the card, providing a bigger body that fights something on ETB sounds a lot better, add in that Kogla is maybe easier to cast with a bigger board presence and I feel the point should be made. If you want something small that can do something similar, there is Caustic Wasps, which is evasive and kills artifacts, as well as stuff like Thrashing Brontodon and Reclamation Sage, without using a non-creature option. Sunder Shaman seems to combine a so-so body with an ability that isn't particularly easy to guarantee, people can stop your attacks in a variety of ways and Shaman needs to deal damage. Kogla just needs to swing and something is getting blown up, that's much more relevant. If you want something earlier than Kogla you can use Outland Liberator Flip, which can work without attacking and on every attack if you can get it flipped, I'd actually say that's a lot more consistent than Shaman. If anything I'd run more artifact/enchantment removal, there are tons of people who run infuriating stuff like Propaganda and even the dreaded War Tax. If I was building Thantis like this, I think I'd want War Cadence, very politically relevant. I personally love removal in most decks, and I wouldn't hesitate to run some in a deck like this, especially clunky damage based wipes, because Thantis can be huge sometimes and survive a Blasphemous Act.
Haha, I think Duo AND Crown would be pretty absurd, both only hurt your opponents. Still, I do agree he might be trying to do too many things at once here, and that's why it's hard to cut cards.
Monarch is a good way to get people swinging, but Coveted Jewel is the real 'kingmaker' you can run to create utter chaos. It's one thing to turn down 1 free card, but to turn down 3 mana and 3 cards is just madness, and letting someone else keep that 3 mana for their next turn is likewise unacceptable, so it can create a ton of chaos. Something like Kamahl, Fist of Krosa could be pretty interesting, if a land is a creature it either has to get tapped down or swung with, and small creatures die. Jolrael, Empress of Beasts can turn their entire land base into 3/3s. I'm not saying you should threaten people's mana bases, but I'd feel remiss if I didn't bring it up.
Re: running more Green ramp, I like to run more Green mana sources in a deck that runs lots of Green ramp, as long as I have Green ramp and Green mana I can find whatever other mana I want. There are so many decent 2 and 3 mana ramp spells in Green, even stuff like Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf can work beautifully, if you dig out a tapped dual it feels pretty good with Wood, Farhaven just finds whatever basic you need.
