Jeskai Ascendancy


Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, creatures you control get +1/+1 until end of turn. Untap those creatures.

Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card.

Have you looked at the Jeskai Ascendancy / Emry, Lurker of the Loch alt combo lists?

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Good budget deck, less than $100 is impressive.

All my card suggestions will be budget, $2 or less each. Consider cutting some lands for low mana cost mana rocks? Mana rocks trigger Kykar and can create ramp:

40 lands is a lot of lands and these rocks are only two mana each. It's very unlikely that cutting four lands for these rocks will disrupt your ability to have mana in fact it will most likely help.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 1x Island
  • 1x Mountain
  • 1x Izzet Guildgate
  • 1x Azorius Guildgate

Land upgrades to consider:

Draw engines are very good in Commander. Repeatable draw can keep you ahead or just plain bury your opponents in card advantage. Jeskai Ascendancy can be a draw/pump engine with Kykar and Spirit tokens. Add Impact Tremors or Guttersnipe to this engine to drain your opponents life. Mentor of the Meek can be repeatable draw when making 1/1 or 2/2 tokens. Bident of Thassa can draw a lot of cards when attacking with flying Spirit tokens.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Swarm Intelligence
  • Invoke the Firemind
  • Arcane Melee
  • Melek, Izzet Paragon

Other card upgrades to consider:

There's a lot of ways here to gain life with tokens or with other spells consider one of the best mana efficient burn spells in Commander: Price of Progress . There's a lot of basic lands in the manabase here which is good with Progress.

I offer more help if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

hejtmane, you can play Mizzix of the Izmagnus in a deck with Elsha of the Infinite as General :)

With Elsha one of the strongest things about her is pseudo Future Sight from the Command Zone, but you want a lot of top of the library manipulation because she doesn't let you play lands from the top. You need to be able to filter lands away from the top of your library (lots of repeatable scry) or draw the lands to get more out of her.

Elsha can be versatile don't have use a spellslinger theme since she works with artifacts and enchantments too; those cards trigger prowess and get flash. I think any nongreen blue General who can have interaction with casting mana rocks in the mid to late game has an advantage over other potential Generals. What may separate Elsha from the other possible Jeskai Commanders is her ability to give flash to noncreature spells which could make her an excellent control General. Kykar, Wind's Fury is also a good new Jeskai General especially with Jeskai Ascendancy .

Yo chadsansing, been thinking of a couple different builds. Had some thoughts of going eggs route as well as going storm, but yes been thinking of how I can abuse Jeskai Ascendancy .

Good stuff. Any thought of going deeper into a Jeskai Ascendancy build?

Griselbrand123 in essence, you in order to perform this combo, you need to have:

In order of what you actually do:

  1. Cast Retraction Helix on Kykar

  2. Tap Kykar to bounce one of your 0 mana artifacts to your hand

  3. Replay the 0 mana artifact. From here, three triggers will hit the stack as a result of you casting a non creature spell: Kykar generates a 1/1 Spirit token, the Jeskai Ascendancy trigger to untap all your creatures, and the option to loot through Jeskai Ascendancy.

  4. Because Kykar is now untapped, you may tap him again to bounce the artifact back to your hand, replaying it and repeating this loop over and over again, generating infinite Storm, tokens, red mana, and practically the entirety of you graveyard.
