Kykar, Wind's Fury Discussion
1 week ago
I did notice the deck needs better pumpers - thank you for your suggestions. Valor in Akros might fit the strategy, I added it to the maybeboard. Obviously, the same goes for Cathars' Crusade, however, I hate the card because of the hassle with the dice. If I remember correctly, it even was in a previous version of the deck.
As for the commander, I chose Elsha of the Infinite because I had tried building a Melek, Izzet Paragon spellslinger deck before that sucked and Elsha does most things they did but better while also including another color. Including the token strategy into the Else deck was just my way of getting creative. Maybe if I started out not with a spellslinger theme but with a tokens theme, I would have chosen Kykar, Wind's Fury instead. So maybe you're right, but who's better is not relevant to me :)
Thanks for your comment!

I just recently assembled this 2 card combo Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and I basically didn't realize how over powered broken garbage this combo is. Essentially if you can make 3 or more mana, you have infinite mana. This is especially broken in my Kykar, Wind's Fury deck because with the commander in play you also get to make infinite 1/1 spirits. Combine that with Impact Tremors and you win on the spot. Combine that with Whirlwind of Thought and you can draw your whole deck. Even without kykar you can play Aetherflux Reservoir and gain infinite life and deal infinite damage. Anyways, I know I'm pretty late to the isocron scepter party bus, but I just pulled the combo off in a casual game against my wife and thought, wow this is next level shit right here, and wanted to put it out there for everyone to consider.
If anyone has any spicy interactions I might not know about if like to hear about it

The question is, if I activate Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal on it, am I playing a copy of dramatic reversal, or am I casting it. Like specifically in the case of how cards likes Kykar, Wind's Fury or Ral, Storm Conduit would see the card

If you replace Solemn Simulacrum and Oath of Lieges with any cards with activated abilities, you could switch Zirda, the Dawnwaker with another legendary creature with an activated ability like Basandra, Battle Seraph, Brion Stoutarm, Razia, Boros Archangel, or Tajic, Legion's Edge, and just have Zirda as your companion. But Zirda will also be very vulnerable since you can't recast her from the command zone if she gets removed, but if you play Brion Stoutarm you could just sac her when she gets targeted, and just use one of the many white recursion spells to bring her back. If you so choose to lean into the Sunforger side of the deck though, you could easily play Kykar, Wind's Fury as the commander, and just run extra protection spells that you could pull out of the deck using Sunforger such as Eerie Interlude, and Razor Barrier, or counterspells like Render Silent and Hindering Light. I think I might build something like that soon!

This deck seems hectic. Like there isn't really any driving engine to survive things like boardwipes. There are a few cards that help, but Golos seems like an odd choice as a commander other than the large amount of high cost cards. You also have no board wipes in case your opponents build a strong board position. Some cards I'd recommend: Martial Coup, Austere Command, Cleansing Nova, Oblivion Stone, and Nevinyrral's Disk. I'd recommend running 3-5 of those, and martial coup and austere command are some of the best wipes in commander.
To add to this, the deck seems confused about its desired objective. Are you trying to build extra counters with proliferate? Are you building a super friends deck? Are you trying to swing wide with tokens? I'd recommend picking a singular focal point and building a strong focus in that area. If you want to build a lot of tokens some good commanders are: Akim, the Soaring Wind, Breya, Etherium Shaper, Kykar, Wind's Fury which give you white for your board wipes and other useful white spells as well as blue and red for Brudiclad.

I normally do not reply to comments on my work-based decklists, but I felt inclined for this one:
Thank you for your suggestions. This deck was meant to showcase a minor level of alteration to the 2019 Commander deck "Mystic Intellect", and as such, only twenty cards were permitted to switch in or out. Mana rocks were not the biggest priority in this series and as such were not considered en masse for alteration reasons. If you wish to use this deck with your suggestions feel free. The original article was published about a year ago and will not be updated. This list will reflect the article and therefore will not be updated either. Kykar, Wind's Fury is a decent addition and did come out prior to this article's publication on August 15th, 2019, but it was not considered as Sun Titan needed more targets. That being said, I'm sure I would probably add Kykar in a revision of this list that had no slot restriction, and more room for creatures.
As of publication, Throne of Eldraine and later sets were not public knowledge and as such were not considered. Fellwar Stone is extremely meta-dependent, and so was not considered. Ravnican Signets are also often worse than Talismans as they need mana to operate and therefore Talismans were considered over Signets.
Last note: The "Planeswalker uniqueness rule" as you seem to know it is obsolete - they changed it as of 2018 with the Ixalan expansion set. Now, cards with the Planeswalker card type are all Legendary (and those not stating such have been given errata to reflect the change), and are subject to the "legend rule" as it's written (meaning Planeswalker subtype is not the factor in determining the state-based action that kills Planeswalkers, but full, printed English name, as is the case for all cards with the Legendary supertype). There is also no reason not to run two Planeswalkers of the same subtype in the deck even if the "Planeswalker uniqueness rule" was still in effect. Redundancy is very important in the Commander format.
Again, I appreciate the suggestions for inclusions - if I had more slots to make cuts and adds with, I'd certainly consider a lot of them. If anyone looking at this list wants to make such changes I happily encourage this. It's your deck at that point. Do with it what you will.
