Jeskai Ascendancy Discussion

You're welcome :) I appreciate your interests in my deck!

Exploration is great for getting extra mana with Golos activations or, as you already said, with wheels. I really love this card, but feel free to cut it, if it doesn't work out for you.

Jeweled Lotus is sadly not too good for this deck. It's kind of good in the first two turns, but I would highly recommend Mana Vault over it, because you can use it to cast Golos, Tireless Pilgrim or activate him, or cast a "Feel the Wheel" combo. It's a dead card in the mid to late game.

I can definitely include Silence. I just didn't do it, because I think that Grand Abolisher and Vexing Shusher are better for the deck. But if you need more, include it.

I considered Flusterstorm and Pact of Negation aswell, but they're not too good with Jeskai Ascendancy, but more important they're not too good with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim in general.

I will probably make the Alms Collector cut, but I have to think about Aven Mindcensor. I think that having another 3 cmc flash creature, to interrupt opponents tutoring and fetching is just too good.

Thank you very much for your interest again. I really enjoy the discussion!

boristormodor, thanks again for creating this deck and by providing an outlet for discussion. My playgroup also doesn't allow for infinite damage, mana, draw, ect.

I am curious about the inclusion of Exploration in a deck that plays 29 lands. I assume it is good primary when you wheel. Could Jeweled Lotus be played in that slot considering Golos is a main part of your early game and is also part of your primary wincon?

Is Jeskai Ascendancy the reason the deck isn't playing more counterspells? Flusterstorm and Pact of Negation are played in most blue cEDH decks. Force of Negation is another possibility. Silence would also be good as wouldn't have to have a target so Jeskai Ascendancy would trigger.

Frank_Glascock maybe I misunderstood your question. If you wanted to know if I win often with the Jeskai Ascendancy combo, I can give you a clear answer. Yes, I do. If you don't fizzle in the first two activations, you will most likely not fizzle at all and get your whole deck to play.

boristormodor, sorry I should have checked the latest change log to see Teferi, Time Raveler was cut.

How often do you cast/ exile Cyclonic Rift or Finale of Devastation when using Golos, Tireless Pilgrim's ability in conjunction with the
Bloom Tender + Jeskai Ascendancy/Faeburrow Elder/Living Plane combo?

I ask this because you mention both in the win-con section detailing the above listed combo. You state, "In the end, we want to play some creatures out, or play an overloaded Cyclonic Rift and finally play a game winning Finale of Devastation, which gives all of our creatures for example +30/+30 and haste."

LeaPlath Jeskai Ascendancy would be good in the deck because you can discard your Arclight Phoenixes while casting non-discard spells, which is really good.

whatqwerty I will swap the Skewer the Critics once I get Lightning Bolt. Miscast and Spell Pierce are too situational for main-board play, but are good sideboard cards.

LeaPlath you make a solid argument. I will keep the Lightning Helix for now, but will replace it once I get some upgrades.

The good thing about fakeout is that you catch your opponent off guard and it’s near impossible for them to sideboard against a “new deck”, but the more I think about it the less I feel confident about playing a fakeout strategy. I might end up adding Jeskai Ascendancy to the deck so I am keeping the white, but your help is really useful. Thank you a lot!

Robobro72 on Gnostro shenanigans

Cool deck, might have me brewing around Gnostro as well.

If you're in the market for other sweet cards, I would definitely look into Jeskai Ascendancy. I don't see it mentioned anywhere I think it's one of the best untap effects you could be playing. If you don't want too many of these effects, I think it could be a decent swap with Disciple of the Ring or Chain Stasis given how mana intensive they can be.

Another card that seems quite good if not just fun would be Swans of Bryn Argoll. It's a pet card of mine and can have its drawbacks if you play around a lot of Blasphemous Act but in my opinion its a far more flexible Eligeth, Crossroads Augur that can be cast along with another spell the turn after your commander comes down. Of note it isn't a non-bo with Repurcussion since the damage is prevented, and it can turn Grapeshot into " : draw cards equal to your storm count".

Hello again! Came across another card that made me think of your project: Whirlwind of Thought

Pros:

  • It gives you a repeatable source of card draw. I noticed the deck was very light in the card draw department, with mostly card filtering rather than true card draw (e.g. Frantic Search, Opt), or "impulsive draw" as it's been termed (e.g. Abbot of Keral Keep).
  • It ties into the prowess / noncreature spell theme.
  • It depicts airbending.

Cons:

  • A female airbender isn't a part of ATLA. You'd have to interpret it as Aang somewhere off-camera using airbending ON someone.... for SOME random reason....
  • Function-wise, it isn't actually as strong or efficient as Jeskai Ascendancy (sadly, that card's art has zero flavor tie-in). Ascendancy effectively doubles your prowess buffs, and while not true card draw, the repeatable loot effect is good. And the untap clause is nothing to sneeze at -- aside from the pseudo-vigilance it gives, imagine the edge case of multiple noncreature spells you can cast and a Beguiler of Wills on board..... Man, if they someday reprint Ascendancy with better art, it's an auto-include in my book! Maybe you could get an altered-art version?? :)

Hope this comment finds you well. Cheers!
