Yesterday on lathiel, the bounteous dawn and …

Possibly worth noting that, among cards with intervening if clauses that have variable effects based on the state of that trigger, Lathiel is a little bit of an outlier with regards to not gaining more benefit from responding to its trigger.

That is, when Damia, Sage of Stone triggers at the beginning of your upkeep because you have fewer than seven cards in hand, you can dump your hand and then draw more cards from its ability. And at the beginning of your upkeep when your Ana Sanctuary triggers because you control only a blue permanent, you can respond by making another permanent you control black, in order to get a bigger pump.

Lathiel doesn't do this, not because it doesn't check its condition again as the ability goes to resolve, but because you need to declare the targets and distribution of counters for its ability as that ability is put on the stack, and you don't get a chance to change that when the ability checks again if you've gained life.

The option I'd choose is Damia, Sage of Stone, your deck only really lacks card draw, I'd go with this!

Here are other options:

Good luck!

Scytec: I glossed over the fact that you weren't running Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal. I saw the deck the other day and was going off my memory of it (since I remember the Pili-Pala combo) however jumbled my memory up of it and then glossed over it today - you'll have to excuse me for that.

In that case, it puts even more stress on the deck as you don't have any redundancy on the comob pieces and are now splitting ramp between mana rocks/dorks (which are generally more efficient ramp pieces) and lands which you need to combo.

If you're going to go down the lands route, unfortunately the best card for it is Palinchron, which isn't exactly budget. Great Whale is much cheaper, but still quite costly. Personally I used to use Peregrine Drake, Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator, Eternal Witness and Ghostly Flicker in my Damia, Sage of Stone deck, however would use Tooth and Nail to play it.

The benefit of Tasigur here is that you can also use cards like Neoform and Eldritch Evolution to turn tasigur into the mana untappers. And Evoltion is great since it can really fetch any of the creature parts.

Either way, I would persoanlly make the call to lean more towards land based combos or rock/dork based combos, but not to split your resources down the middle. You can techincally get some overlap if you went Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator and Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal by adding in Eternal Witness since she can work with navigator and reversal to form a loop. But for me it's about getting that overlap without spending too many card slots.

For a very long time, I ran Damia, Sage of Stone as my primary commander and even resisted switching to Tasigur, the Golden Fang . With the release of Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver there was enough incentive to change over, but it was still a hard choice.

As for the examples you've given though, I still feel like there's a bit of a disconnect between your existing commanders and the new example commanders. Sure, Zacama, Primal Calamity is naya an interacts with lands, but it's still a very different deck than Hazezon Tamar .

Just like how using Chainer, Dementia Master is about being able to abuse reanimation (which may or may not be abusing discard ETB effects). So while the deck may have a heavy discard theme (which on quick inspection looks like it does) however a lot of the card choices in the deck would still look different with someone like Tegrid, God of Fright leading it.

I also think that there are two distinct questions here:

1) When do players feel it's the right time to replace cards in the 99, and;

2) When do players feel it's the right time to replace their commander

I feel like question 2 is a lot more difficult of a question, as geenrall you're not just swapping a pet card in/out - you're effectively restructuring the deck at this point (even if you are keeping the theme the same).

I have Call to the Kindred on the battlefield attached to a wizard creature.

During my upkeep, Call to the Kindred triggers and I find a Damia, Sage of Stone and put it into play.

Does Damia, Sage of Stone 's ability triggers, since I'm still during my upkeep ?

thank you. To answer your question: I might honestly just put Fynn in the 99 of some deck that runs deathtouch creatures instead, I'm thinking Jorn, God of Winter  Flip. I actually forgot to make the fynn deck hidden. If you are looking for infect, I suggest going Simic, Golgari or even Sultai. if you go Sultai and Don't want to go Voltron, you could go for Damia, Sage of Stone . just know, if you play infect, they will try to kill you first, which is why I personally don't have one myself. Seton druid tribal is one of my favorite decks along with my The Locust God deck and Edgar Markov . Winota, Joiner of Forces can also be really busted. I love that one too. the next deck I plan to do is Lathril, Blade of the Elves , I've already bought the precon and I am gonna test it out to see what works and what doesn't and upgrade accordingly. oh and in case you were wondering, other good infect commanders are the following: Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Volrath, the Shapestealer . Ezuri can make your Blighted Agent huge and kill someone with 1 or 2 hits by putting counters on it. in that deck you run all the blue and green infect creatures, scryfall is your friend. with Volrath, you want to be playing Evasive infect creatures that you then put a counter on a turn Volrath into, so again Blighted Agent is a very good card there. same with Phyrexian Crusader and Plague Stinger . The reason I broght up Damia, Sage of Stone is that she's just a really good value commander in sultai colors, she draws you cards, the other 2 kill faster.
