The most and best wheel cards are in and , so you need at least one of those colors, and preferably both. Xyris, the Writhing Storm and

Breaking it down, wheeling has four key parts: you discard, you draw, opponents discard, and opponents draw. This is a very simple, slightly curated list of commander options that care about at least one of these.

"Whenever you draw"

"Whenever you discard"

"Whenever an opponent draws"

"Whenever an opponent discards"

Some side options are reanimator, since you're going to be filling graveyards fast, and spellslinger, since most of the straightforward options are instants and sorceries.

Hey! I love the deck - it seems perfect for drawing loads of cards. Perhaps you could use Niv-Mizzet, Parun? He rewards you for drawing cards, draws you cards for casting instants and sorceries, and punishes your opponents for casting the same spell types. He's quite color-intensive though. He also goes infinite with Curiosity.

Another recommendation would be Purphoros, God of the Forge - he's basically a better Impact Tremors.

Castle Embereth could slot in instead of a mountain and buffs your entire board.

Finally, Mystic Remora can draw a ton of cards, and few people ever pay the for it. If you pay the upkeep cost, it can get you 4+ cards a turn!

I have a similar deck, Oops, all blightsteels! [Brudiclad EDH]. I'd love it if you could give me some feedback!

I'm aware that this deck somehow is a mess.

It tries to be a spellslinger deck like Neera, Wild Mage, Veyran, Voice of Duality or Niv-Mizzet, Parun. Then again, it does that to summon artifacts and get extra use from them, which Galazeth Prismari would probably a better commander for. And then again it also needs dice manipulation to work properly, which Wyll, Blade of Frontiers as a commander could achieve much easier.

Because of this, the deck feels really inconsistent.

Also the "winning" condition of this deck isn't clear. I planned to play much more burn and create attraction loops that mass-cast free burn spells. Also Veyran and Wyll can get pretty strong and deal damage.

I honestly don't know where to take this deck.

Personally I would make these swaps:

Exalted Flamer of Tzeentch -> Ruby Medallion
Necropotence -> Syr Carah, the Bold
Rhystic Study -> Spellweaver Helix
Jeweled Lotus -> Reckless Barbarian
Mox Amber -> Cheering Fanatic
Firebrand Archer -> Chart a Course
Dimir Signet -> Sign in Blood
Chromatic Lantern -> Ancestral Vision
Talisman of Dominance -> Knollspine Dragon
Vampiric Tutor -> Niv-Mizzet, Parun
Thought Vessel -> Thrumming Stone
Faithless Looting, Toxic Deluge, Wheel of Misfortune, An Offer You Can't Refuse, Negate, Mana Drain, Chaos Warp, Deadly Rollick, Deflecting Swat, Pongify, Teminate, Stubborn Denial, Lightning Greaves -> 13x Dragon's Approach

Immortalys on Card Draw Tag

1 year ago

So I just made a Jhoira, Weatherlight Legends deck, focussing on Legends (of course) with a card draw theme.

With a Card Draw theme I mean cards like Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Honden of Seeing Winds for straight up card draw.

Cards like Alandra, Sky Dreamer and Minn, Wily Illusionist for second card drawn each turn (I know this is a tag already).

Cards that pay of drawing lots of cards like Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God and Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim.

Cards that pay you off for having lots of cards in hand like Alrund, God of the Cosmos  Flip, Hisoka, Minamo Sensei and Meishin, the Mind Cage.

And other cards with card draw synergies like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Also cards that grant an unlimited hand size like Nezahal, Primal Tide, Thought Vessel, Decanter of Endless Water, Wizard Class and the good old Reliquary Tower.

So how come there is no Card Draw tag yet?

pedroedmarcos on Can you respond to soulbound?

1 year ago

Hey there,

So, since the reminder text of soulbound cards there is not a "whenever, when or at" at the beginning of the effect, i'm not sure if there is a window for responses. This week I saw a streamed gameplay and the player A casted Tandem Lookout with Niv-Mizzet, Parun on the field. Player B said it would resolve but he would Path to Exile in response to the soulbound trigger. Is there really a window for responses?

Damn has white in it so its not legal for your color identity.

Have you considered Liliana's Caress or Peer into the Abyss? Each works as a double punch with Jace's Archivist. Other cards for 2 card combos to consider are Curiosity to go with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Symmetry Matrix to go with The Locust God.

Another alternate win card to Consider would be Triskaidekaphile. Not only will you have another no maximum hand size card, but the activated ability can work as a late game mana sink.

Considering all the discard, may I also recommend artifacts that shuffle your graveyard back into your library? This includes, but is not limited to, Campfire, Cranial Archive and Elixir of Immortality.

I hope these help. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

Have you considered using a different version of Niv-Mizzet as your commander? Niv-Mizzet, Parun has two triggered abilities, with it's only downside being that it costs 6 coloured mana instead of 4 coloured and 2 colourless (and it's a very strong draw and removal engine on it's own, so it is much more subject to removal from your opponents).
