Jeska, Thrice Reborn

Legendary Planeswalker — Jeska

Jeska, Thrice Reborn enters the battlefield with a loyalty counter on it for each time you've cast a commander from the command zone this game.

0: Choose target creature. Until your next turn, if that creature would deal combat damage to one of your opponents, it deals triple that damage to that player instead.

-X: Jeska, Thrice Reborn deals X damage to each of up to any three targets (creature, player, planeswalker or battle).

Jeska, Thrice Reborn can be your commander.

Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

This deck has potential! A good Boros Bonk deck can be found amongst even a cedh table, where it would be considered fringe. I love seeing Jeska, Thrice Reborn. Decent list! +1

You want to hit hard and fast? Consider using Jeska, Thrice Reborn as the red partner to Ardenn. Use Arden as the equipment carrier and then triple all damage from him thanx to Jeska. With those two, depending on how the deck is built, you can swing for 36 commander damage as early as t1.

I am considering trying to make room for Jeska, Thrice Reborn as well as Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath.

The items Jeska carry would be debatable, for sure, however the actual definition of a sword does match what she is carrying. It may be a ceremonial or magical item, sure, but it does fit the actual definition of a sword.

As for Ob Nixilis, he does actually have a sword, it's just covered by the loyalty text boxes.

Jeska would serve as a very quick finisher. She does not need to last more than a turn. Even if I am only taking out 1 opponent, that is more than enough to warrant her slot in the deck. Considering the nature of Voltron, she will always enter the battlefield with at least 1 loyalty counter - likely many more.

As for Ob Nixilis, just as with the 3 cards that give me lifelink, he does help me get back small amounts of life here and there. Although we all know the more important aspect of him is his -2. I could land a 5/5 flyer and equip it using a lot of my treasure tokens. That would be an incredibly big attacker with evasion. If I am able to get to his emblem, I could also always sacrifice my Commander to get a ton of life and cards immediately, if need be.

you could run Jeska, Thrice Reborn to one-shot unprotected people with Inferno of the Star Mounts via commander damage as well as Umezawa's Jitte to both buff inferno fast and allow for repeatable use

Phyrexian Vindicator: Very color-heavy, but I think white deserves a Stuffy Doll variant more than red with its Brash Taunter

Ichormoon Gauntlet: Lets uncommons from WAR like Narset, Parter of Veils beef themselves up, as well as Jeska, Thrice Reborn with a blue-inclsive partner. Teferi, Master of Time can give your collective PWs four counters a turn! Maybe there's a planeswalker that can easily get high loyalty but don't have much to spend it on, synergizing with the "extra ultimate"? Obviously, since proliferate lets you put a counter on each of your PWs, this becomes much better in superfriends, but more general counters decks can probably use that triggered ability as well.

Tur on Challenging Maarika

I believe that you're committing too much to your theme. There are too many cards which do the same thing. You should cut down on the instant/sorcery fight cards to maybe 5-6 cards (that is ~10% of the deck):

I suggest choosing some from these cards: Bite Down, Bushwhack, Cartouche of Strength, Chandra's Ignition, Fall of the Hammer, Go for Blood, Master's Rebuke, Nature's Way, Prey Upon, Prizefight, Tail Swipe, Ulvenwald Tracker

In my opinion, the best ones are: Bushwhack, Cartouche of Strength, Chandra's Ignition, Nature's Way, Prey Upon, Prizefight, Tail Swipe

Fight on a stick should be considered: Gruul Ragebeast or Kogla, the Titan Ape

Deathtouch to this theme is nice, but you're going to be doing 7 damage upon each fight. It's unlikely a creature will survive that fight. Therefore, you can cut back on deathtouch, that is Archetype of Finality, Bow of Nylea, Vorpal Sword, and Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar. Basilisk Collar is still good because of the lifelink. Saryth, the Viper's Fang is still good because of hexproof.

Furthermore, I would cut cards which deal damage based on how much Maarika receives. It will mostly be 3-5 damage. Such as, Fiendlash.

Because the commander is Voltron it needs many keyword abilities: haste, trample, and hexproof should be your bread and butter (no shroud for this deck). Enchantments or equipment which yield those keyword abilities are great.

There are a few Voltron related cards which I would suggest: Fiery Emancipation, Jeska, Thrice Reborn, and Hatred can one shot an opponent.

I hope this helps!

I've been wanting to add Planeswalkers, but unfortunately with just 2 creatures at my disposal, these are not easy to protect. That being said, I did find two that are perfect for this deck. Three, actually.

As an honorary mention, Angrath, Captain of Chaos works for the deck. His text mentions the word "creature", he gives my Commanders menace which is hugely helpful, and yes there is a sword in the artwork. If you look at the Eternal in the background to the left, you see it wielding what appears to be the Khopesh. We can see the full sized artwork here. However, there is room for argument that his is not a stylized or angled Khopesh, and instead another weapon - the Mace-Axe, which can be seen depicted here, in two versions: #5 and #8. Because this leaves room for argument, Angrath won't be making the deck.

Someone who can make the cut and dramatically act as a wincon for the deck is Jeska, Thrice Reborn. Her 0 can cause an TKO. Suppose for example I am up against an opponent who is playing Golgari, and my Commander happens to have protection from black and green with either Sword of Feast and Famine as well as some other buffs. To land 21 damage, he or she needs a minimum power of 7. That is very easily done with this deck. So Jeska immediately becomes a wincon. (Also, her initial loyalty is equal to the number of times I've cast my Commander this game, and I happen to have two of them ;3)

Lastly, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath fulfills the requirement of padding my boardstate with his 5/5 Demons with flying. Likewise, he also regains me approximately 3 life each turn, helping off-set the life I lose whenever I cast my spells. His full artwork can be seen here, showing that he is in fact holding a sword.

Lastly, there is powerful synergy between Nixilis and Jeska, because I can target his 5/5 Demon with flying and beat face for a respectable 15 damage if all else fails.
