Bro if u play with Worldfire, I think u should also play with Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation. I win a lot just bc of these 2.

U can see my deck Thicc Jhoira.

You could be playing with extra turn cards, they are extremely decent. Also with some other bombs like Mnemonic Deluge and goodies like Wild-Magic Sorcerer and Narset, Parter of Veils.

And if u care about which cards I would take out, Thought Reflection and Magmatic Force would be my suggestion.

Marisi, breaker of coils enchantress (angry Naya gods). Players are regularly confused on what to remove. Usually they take out Purphuros or something that isn't as strong in the deck due to low synergy. It is assumed I need attackers all the time, but I am more likely to shell up & play enchantress than people realize... Just in a more aggressive way than most enchantresses.

Atla Palani, Nest Tender Insert eye rolls here ... BUT! Hear me out. My Atla deck is literally all damage doublers, damage triplers, or direct damage creatures. This means you see Ruric Thar, the Unbowed with Fiery Emancipation & cards that usually never see the light of day like Magmatic Force. Chandra, Awakened Inferno is hilarious with a damage doubler.

sean360 Happy to share my thoughts and considerations.

As for why you kept it more simple. The Populate cost of 4 makes it a lot stronger when just copying good stuff at high CMC, especially ones with ETBs or easy triggers. Imagine copying a Magmatic Force at 4 mana. Normally it takes 3 CMC and a card to make a token of a creature you control. To copy any creature you often turn to Clone and their ilk.

I hesitated suggesting a Populate of 4 because the creature itself provides the token that it can populate. Most of the Populate cards synergizes off other cards making those tokens, so there's a weakness that you need one to use the other. In the case of Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage the token generation is really expensive, so it is more efficient to have another card provide the token and then the Guildmage can Populate it. Kimni is one package, and there's a danger in making that too efficient. That's why I sought other ways to make it stronger without breaking it.


Making the creature and the copy token a changeling (not linked to the Populate ability, only the on-cast) seems close to a no-cost. It definitely makes Kimni stronger in certain deck shells but in others it is meaningless - like when you just copy the best creature on board when you cast it and have little self-synergy when copying your own stuff. And the strength it draws from tribal synergy seems rather small, where it would be more beneficial to run a Commander directly from that tribe.

WotC have already made 2 Changeling token producers in; Birthing Boughs and Maskwood Nexus - the later even being an Arcane Adaptation on steroids. I think the Birthing Boughs were made cautiously because it had to account for limited play. Token generators are very powerful in limited, especially without color restriction. The Maskwood is exploring the use of changelings but at rare, so it doesn't affect limited significantly.

I doubt that making them changelings would break the card. Making the Populate at 4 is stronger than changelings and Populate at 5. At least IMO.

All changes (cards that moved out) went to the sideboard. Not every change is for the sake of a better deck, but for a better group-expirience. for example Aggravated Assault is stupid good in NEHEB, but I find myself more often discarding it because I dont like "infinite/combo" wins out of the blue. Some other cards like Magmatic Force are just nice to have in my playgroup and kinda fair/manageable.

I would most likely cut Magmatic Force, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Karn Liberated.

3 damage to any target isn't bad, but bolting one thing at the beginning of every upkeep just isn't that big of an affect for the mana cost. Even hitting off of your commander's trigger, its a 6 mana 7/7 with no evasion. Using a ramp spell here would get you "free-casting" Eldrazi much sooner.

Along the same lines, Sigarda isn't much of a threat on her own. The body is fine... but again, your deck is full of nasty 6/6 + creatures and you'd rather have a chance at an eldrazi a turn earlier than have a flier with very limited protection capability. Even Shalai, Voice of Plenty provides a greater deal of protection for less mana (with a mana sink to boot).

Karn isnt a creature, and the whole goal of the deck is to spin the wheel and get creatures for cheap. Its a great card, but is a non-bo and limits your deck's ability (slightly, but still) to do what it wants to do efficiently. Running ramp here would start your engine much quicker, and help you get good board presence against those heavily aggressive opponents.
