Jalira, Master Polymorphist Discussion

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

Alrighty, thanks for all the suggestions!
So far, I'm thinking
Atla Palani, Nest Tender(over Jalira, Master Polymorphist because has more big creatures) with some fun pieces like maybe Impact Tremors for a little extra damage. Chancellor of the Forge would be pretty funny there.

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

I don't have full lists on the decks im building and none of them are fine tuned, more just rough estimates of what the decks will look like. So far I have been trying to figure out the commanders that are viable on a competitive level and so far have found these commanders to be on a competitive level
- Auriok Salvagers
- Baleful Strix
- Chakram Retriever+Chakram Slinger
- Disciple of Deceit
- Hermit Druid
- Ley Weaver+Lore Weaver
- Poison-Tip Archer
- Satyr Enchanter
- Siona, Captain of the Pyleas
- Siren of the Silent Song
- Tatyova, Benthic Druid
- Mayhem Devil
- Jalira, Master Polymorphist
- Warden of the Eye
- Skyward Eye Prophets
When it comes to discord you can always create an account its free, they have it on mobile, mac, windows, or you can just use it in your browser and dont have to download it. I created a server for us so I can update you on the latest things im working and and I can post deck links as I finish them
One huge resource I found helpful is this post containing differend PDH combos:
It does not cover every combo available but its a start. Right now im in the process of cutting my decks down to 99 and writing up a quick into to the card choices and combo lines, I am still working on my first one and am nearly done, its for Auriok Salvagers
I have SO much information and work I have done on this unexplored format and would love to share it with you, discord is a super fluid way to do that as I rarely check my tapped out for messages.

sergiodelrio thanks for the advice and clearing up doubts! <3 I would use Jalira, Master Polymorphist but it requires sacrificing a card, and on top of that it costs 4 mana. If I use it, I'll have to change my deck from less aggro to more midrange. However, the cheapest card i have in mana cost is 2, so if I sacrifice a creature, I'll have at least any card I want to play that is close to the mana cost of this card.Plus, using this card may make me discard lands. In your opinion is this card really worth it in my deck? Here is the link to my deck so you can see if it may be worth it:

MagnanimousJalira, Master Polymorphist seems the best for my blue/colorless Eldrazi deck. Does it require that I pay the mana cost, because it doesn't say 'no mana cost'? The only problem is unless I have a lot of heavy mana-cost cards in my deck it will be useless.
