Jalira, Master Polymorphist Discussion

I feel like this deck wants to be fairly aggro, but you've built it to have quite a bit of control.

Shadowspear or Arcane Lighthouse would help you to target things that would be otherwise untargetable.

Arena and other fight effects could help you ditch your stolen creature similar to the Fling mechanics you currently have. I feel like you'll run out steam really quickly with all of these one-off effects. Maybe use Jalira, Master Polymorphist for a repeatable way to transform random stuff you steal from opponents into useful permanent stuff you need. I would also recommend Prime Speaker Vannifar or any other card with this effect like Birthing Pod. Throw in some really good, efficient green creatures too.

You should be getting enough card advantage by stealing opponents' stuff and transforming it into flings and polymorphs, but the deck needs to win. You're relying on the opponents having good creatures to steal, but you need to have good creatures too.

Yasova is a really cool commander, not one I see often. I like where you are going with this. Good luck!

Jalira, Master Polymorphist should let you build a deck with budget (read: otherwise unplayable) creatures in your deck, by having instants/ sorceries that create tokens that are sacrificed to hunt down the beaters.

Really like the deck, it kept growing on me the more I looked at it hahaha

I think Jalira, Master Polymorphist could have a roll in here, since you have so much ETB. If you add it, I'd recommend getting Brainstorm and Preordain if possible (although preordain is pretty much always a good addition). They set up better flips and just give better card selection.

also, Neurok Stealthsuit low key can be nasty, just keep up uu and everything basically has hexproof

So far, I'm thinking

I just reread Grafdigger's Cage and it says the following.

"Players can't cast spells from graveyards or libraries."

Jalira, Master Polymorphist says this.

"Put that card onto the battlefield."

As you are not casting the creatures you get with Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Grafdigger's Cage doesn't stop Jalira's ability.

Even if Grafdigger's Cage works, you can easily swap it out for any other graveyard hate card.
