Mirror Entity Discussion

shadowmage I completely agree that Shared Summons is better than Congregation at Dawn when Selvala isn't in play, however, there aren't many scenarios where I would rather tutor than recast Selvala. Also, I've found that Congregation at Dawn often is enough to "go off," as the Mirror Entity + Wirewood Symbiote combo is really easy to assemble.

There is certainly power and some wonderful cmc heavy interactions you have here. Depending on what your matchups are you will do quite well, especially with those evasive angels. Even against my stronger decks I could see issues when squared up 1v1 with this if I couldn't lock you out with tempo plays.
how well do you find yourself operating during midgame? does it feel like you get punished for swinging in? how consistently can you play your opening hands? Does my removal always feel ideal/versatile enough for my matchups? Does my commander feel impactful enough?
These would be the questions I would use to hone cuts and additions by.
My personal thoughts: Since there isn't much in the decklist dedicated to pumping/protecting Jenara, Asura of War , I would heavily consider using Derevi, Empyrial Tactician in lieu of her at the helm. Birb lets you manipulate the tempo of the board, giving your angels pseudo vig, the ability to untap lands, and the synergy with a potential Sunblast Angel is hilarious. Always having access to derevi for 4 mana always feels good, lets you punish any crackback, and with efficient rocks can be used to great efficiency.
If you wish to keep Jenara, Asura of War as the mander, I would recommend some low cmc cards to give her battlecruiser like synergies and leave your favorite angels as curvetoppers. Pir, Imaginative Rascal , Hardened Scales , Animation Module , heck even Rancor can be devastating in an opening hand with Jenara. Most Jenara, Asura of War decks i have squared up against have been extremely punishing control decks that win almost exclusively with commander damage.
overall, for either case I would recommend these cards:
Garruk Wildspeaker almost never gets removed, acts as an aggressive rock with surprisingly more evasion than artifacts most of the time. the overrun will serve you well
True Conviction is an absolute all star in my buddy's angel deck. just deletes everyone with a stable board.
Greater Good could help you get some value out of your key pieces being spot removed.
Aura Shards even if you aren't using that many bodies, is always an extremely political and welcome topdeck in almost any game.
That being said I am almost certain the deck runs quite well as is, it is more dependent on what you find lacking as you play amongst your meta. Lowering the curve usually always helps smooth things out, but as long as it runs and you are having fun you gotta do you :)

Elvish Archdruid and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as the last 2 infinite mana dorks in the deck. Elvish Harbinger as it counts as an elf, and tutors for your elves Ezuri, Renegade Leader to regenerate your elves Savage Summoning + Walking Ballista is an uncounterable win-con Mirror Entity + Wirewood Symbiote is amazing synergy add Wood Elves to that, and get all your forests Veil of Summer is really good. So is Mandate of Peace .
I also play selvala EVERYBODY PARL(T)AY [Combo][Primer]

Guys. Relax please; I already made my decision: It's unfortunate the Mirror Entity , +1/+1, & Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre combo is going to be something nearly on level to be a Turn 2 or later something I never planned (Sorry, .). Though the Thornbite Staff & Ashnod's Altar cards, among any similar that could do good still. Though Ad Infinitum is too much. That said, I've other things for now; any ideas for my direction? Oh, & I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck, but I want to find some new cards for the deck nobody thought of. That, & I plan to change Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder to a 5 Color Chaos Commander; but who?
Finally, I wonder how to conform my manabase for each deck of mine; the Lands seem off-sync.
I apologize for all this. Thanks for the help; now how to make it? After all this, I wonder who should run my last CMDR Deck? I was thinking of someone from Throne of Eldraine, but who?

No it isn't. If I'm drawing my entire deck, I can use removal spells to get rid of the permanents you described, so they aren't a problem. Even if somehow there is a permanent I can't deal with, I can always just win through the combat step with Mirror Entity , Leyline of Abundance , or Finale of Devastation . If you haven't played with or against this deck before, you might be surprised by how resilient the combo is while still being compact.

There's a pretty easy-to-assemble infinite combo with Atla that you should include in your deck--the only cards it requires to be fielded are Mirror Entity , your commander, and something that gives Atla +1/+1, be it a +1/+1 counter or a temporary buff, such as Blossoming Defense .
For the rest of the combo, you need to have in your library (not on the battlefield) Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , a creature that does damage to an opponent as it ETBs or LTBs, and a creature that destroys permanents your opponents control as it ETBs or LTBs.
Here's how it works. You pump Atla with the counter or spell. You activate Mirror entity a billion or so times for 0. The first resolves, Mirror entity dies, Atla survives because of the boost (Mirror only changes base P/T). Atla triggers, you get the next creature, it dies when Mirror resolves, etc.
Eventually, you'll have the creature that deals damage enter and deal damage. It will die. Ulamog will eventually enter and die, shuffling your graveyard (and thus your ETB/LTB damage-dealer) back into your library, keeping the entire process going ad infinitum.
Granted, while it is guaranteed this combo will eventually win you the game if it goes off without a response, it does require you to shuffle. That random element means it is not a true loop that you can shortcut. In a tournament setting, this type of infinite combo might lead to a violation of slow play rules (akin to the Legacy Four Horsemen deck).

Hey, nice version of Atla.
Mirror Entity is busted with Atla; it's a Dino and an Egg. Regal Behemoth is a very good Dino/mana doubler. It's Lizard creature type was errata to Dinosaur. In multiplayer Commander Runic Armasaur can be a repeatable source of draw.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Thunderherd Migration : Lore, Farseek, Cultivate and even Growth are better.
- Commune with Dinosaurs : can only get one card of possible 57 of 100 cards. Because it's a one drop and can find a land that makes it playable, but consistently it only get a land.
- Savage Twister
- Ghired's Belligerence
- Shake the Foundations
Are you using Heartstone in a combo that I don't see? I ask because it only works with two creatures (Atla and Zacama) in the entire deck. You have many repeatable sources to trigger enrage that these one time effect spells are not needed.
Upgrades within the budget to consider:
- Windswept Heath or Naya Panorama > Myriad Landscape
- City of Brass or Exotic Orchard > Krosan Verge
- Ash Barrens > Evolving Wilds
- Rhythm of the Wild > Fires of Yavimaya
- Smothering Tithe > Huatli, Radiant Champion
- Eternal Witness > Road of Return
- Samut, Voice of Dissent > Burning Sun's Avatar
- Chaos Warp > Pounce
Good luck with your deck.
