Delina, Wild Mage

Delina, Wild Mage

Legendary Creature — Elf Shaman

Whenever this attacks, choose target creature you control, then roll a twenty sided die. (Remember that MTG spindowns are not well weight balanced, so please roll a die that isn't an MTG spindown)

If you roll a 1-14 | Create a tapped and attacking token that's a copy of that creature, except it's not legendary and it has "Exile this creature at the end of combat."
If you roll 15-20 | Create one of those tokens, then you may roll again.

You might take a look at this Thrumming Stone Math

Delina, Wild Mage and more 1 drop cantrips might be good if you want to take advantage of Rioyna's copy fun, but you could also put Magda, Brazen Outlaw as Commander and focus on Treasure support to cheat out Thrumming Stone since you have the most expensive one already.

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, it's a bit of a chaotic deck. I sought to integrate multiple themes and lots of ideas, so an apparent lack of focus was pretty much inevitable. I haven't had issues with the deck not working, though.

First, the suggested cuts:

While Pillardrop Warden and Cogwork Archivist might be a little less efficient than other options, they are a bit more flexible in how they are used. The archivist is useful if I want to put Glimpse of Tomorrow back into my library They both also have reach.

Tavern Scoundrel and Witch's Oven are good ways to sacrifice something that might otherwise be exiled, stolen, or temporary. I can sacrifice Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip to flip him or gain control of an artifact with Confusion in the Ranks. It's a useful effect to have access to.

Mishra's Self-Replicator is a good mutate target, and I can trigger it fairly easily.

Delina, Wild Mage can copy Legendaries. I could run Helm of the Host for this effect, but this is what I am using for now.

Avarice Totem disrupts plays and scales extremely well in the late game. It can be tutored with Urza's Saga as well.

Chandra's Ignition is a solid asymmetrical board wipe, and good for clearing away pesky utility creatures.

Second, your suggestions:

I have a few options for more draw that I'm already thinking about, and utility lands are something I can easily play around with. I eventually need to add my Treasure Vault and Goblin Welder to the deck, but they are tied up in other decks at the moment. I think impulse draw isn't ideal for this deck. If I end up exiling Glimpse of Tomorrow because I can't cast or suspend it.

So what is the goal of this deck? Is this sort of a chaos/token deck? I can see the skeleton of the strategy, but I also see theft, pirates, and burn. My main suggestion would be try to trim some of the out of place cards. Thoughts on things to include/remove regarding the token/chaos strategy:

Possible additions:

Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm - low mana investments that let Ragavan be nearly unblockable. I currently don't see that many ways that allow Ragavan to get through late game.

You run enough pirates that Breeches, Brazen Plunderer might be worth it

Ardent Elementalist is a new card that is the red version of Archaeomancer

Curse of Opulence - easy tokens and mana

There are a fair number of goblins that come with tokens so I would look into some of those

Rionya, Fire Dancer for temporary token copies for your best creatures

I see very little in the form of card advantage so you might consider things like Light Up the Stage, Ignite the Future, Faithless Looting, Mask of Memory, etc.

Some utility lands like: Treasure Vault, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Myriad Landscape, Kher Keep, Buried Ruin, Dormant Volcano, and Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip/Spires of Orazca

Possible cuts (most of these are odd fits or just inefficient cards that have better alternatives):

Pillardrop Warden, Cogwork Archivist, Witch's Oven, Tavern Scoundrel, Mishra's Self-Replicator, Delina, Wild Mage, Avarice Totem, Chandra's Ignition (great card, but not at it's best in this deck).

Overall I like the deck idea, I just feel it needs a little more focus. +1 from me.

Well, we just saw the first ever mono-red Elf with AFR's Delina, Wild Mage, and she just so happens to be an agro commander. So instead, I'll go a different route.

Grobujen, Tyrant of Fire Sea

Legendary Creature - Kraken

Whenever ~ enters the battlefield or attacks, creatures you control get +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is ~'s power

: ~ gets +1/+0 until end of turn


I have a proverb that I like to call "Schrodinger's Spider."

The deadly brown recluse likes to live in piles of unattended clothing. So, if you have any piles of unattended clothing laying around, and you live in an area where brown recluse spiders live, then any given pile of unattended clothing may or may not have a brown recluse spider living in it. Therefore, all piles of unattended clothing both do and do not have brown recluse spiders living in them until you pick the piles up and move them to the laundry. At which point, the dichotomy is resolved, and you are either bitten by venomous poison, or you are not. But until that time, both outcomes are equally plausible.

Sleep tight, kids.

Make an artifact that makes spider tokens, with a D20 roll involved somehow or other. Keep it black bordered, please.

Of course, I was double ninja'd. So I guess never mind. Damnit.

Hello Fireflood!! I’m glad you like the deck! It IS a fun die-themed deck! ETB triggers work GREAT with Delina, Wild Mage as I’m sure you’ve experienced when in play with Earth-Cult Elemental on the battlefield! I would love to hear any suggestions you have for ETB creatures! I’m looking forward to see what the 2022 sets provide to add to this deck!

Rienne, Angel of Rebirth is a really solid option, especially if you want the potential of winning on commander damage, but there is plenty of recursion in G, what with Regrowth effects.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Tana, the Bloodsower would be a pretty sweet combo. Ghired, Conclave Exile would work great with Delina, Wild Mage and all those other Flamerush Rider effects- imagine having several Wulfgars out! Marisi, Breaker of the Coil prevents opponents from messing with your combats and makes your opponents tap out their creatures.

I feel this is a good time to plug my new Commander Variant, and offer some of my favs from that:

Commander Variant: Unlikely Alliances

Some of my favorite unlikely alliances include:

Kaalia of the Vast and Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund dragon tribal

Rafiq of the Many and Uril, the Miststalker enchantress

Omnath, Locus of the Roil and Yarok, the Desecrated elemental tribal

Delina, Wild Mage and Wulfgar of Icewind Dale combat trigger bonanza
