Saheeli Rai

Planeswalker — Saheeli

+1: Scry 1. Saheeli Rai deals 1 damage to each opponent.

-2: Create a token that's a copy of target artifact or creature you control, except it's an artifact in addition to its other types. That token gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

-7: Search your library for up to three artifact cards with different names, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

I recently have been attending my LGS and have a meta consisting of affinity, goblins, living end/crashing footfalls, ponza, bogles and prowess/burn.

The decklist that I brought that did well in this field was Saheeli Rai combo deck.... my decklist is just shy of 600 bucks but honestly I don't think Force of Negation is really needed... the point is that the combo is fast and consistent enough to win games get top 3 and its pretty cheap for a modern brew.... but combo isn't for everyone.

Icbrgr on Saheeli Altar/Cat 3rd place FNM!

Tonight I placed 3rd out of 10 players at FNM..... I replaced Spell Pierce with Force of Negation in the sideboard (It never came up). I have been attending my LGS for the passed few weeks and have been placing last or tied for last with some of my beloved homebrews; but tonight i wanted to take the gloves off and bring my "more competitive" deck.

Lost Game 1 Vs Ponza: (0-2)

This was a nightmare... game one and early Karn, the Great Creator came down and I scooped looking to change me wincon to Felidar Guardian.... game 2 I kept a 2 lander (A fetchland and a shockland not quite realizing/understanding i was facing Ponza)... Utopia Sprawl shenanigans into an early Blood Moon and I conceded rather than giving him the satisfaction of watching me squirm lol..... yikes... I was feeling really bad after this one.

Won Game 2 Vs Bogles (2-0)

Basically for both games i was just able to combo off before the Gladecover Scout was able to do me in... I was lucky and opened both Rip Aparts for game 2 which made Daybreak Coronet into a brick and it was G.G.s

Won Game 3 Vs Goblins (2-0)

I recognized this player and as soon as i saw the Mountain and the first Goblin I knew what I was up against and was holding onto my Lightning Bolts for the combo enabling goblins.... I drew swiftly into my own Mill combo winning game one and opted for some trickery for game 2 expecting a lot more artifact hate/removal in a mostly Goblin deck; so i took out my sorcery speed removal and put in additional Felidar Guardians. They made for life saving blockers and on the follow up Saheeli Rai was able to make all of the Cats for the win.

So tonight I had what I consider to be great success and am feeling like a winner and thought id share! I did not face the Crashing Footfalls/Living End players this evening and affinity was nowhere to be found tonight...Those decks and Ponza seem to be the decks to beat at this LGS.

Yup just got to see what the new Saheeli Rai planswalker can do.... I have no idea what I'm gonna do with her but I love her!

Oh and the lay down arms white instant spell that's a psuedo Swords to Plowshares is very cool too!

I'm honestly just gushing over the Saheeli Rai art that is spoiled of her making a duplicate cylax...would be great if she has an impactful card in this set.

I love this deck! I've been looking for a five color deck to represent Kamigawa and I think this is what I've been looking for. Thoughts on Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa as an alternate commander? It didn't seem to synergize well at first until I realized that she could be used as protection for your clone target.

Some more clone cards that may interest you (if you haven't considered them already):

I think the mana base needs tweaking some and you could probably work on lowering the mana curve somehow, though I'm not too sure on how best to go about that.

things in the modern meta to be mindful of are Chalice of the Void and Ensnaring Bridge... have access to a lot of artifact and enchantment removal. I suggest 2 copies of Prismatic Ending and 2 copies of Abrade/Rip Apart. Prismatic ending counts as a 1cmc spell so it can hit chalice on and rip apart can get rid of chalice on and both can clear away ensnaring bridge... maybe even Hurkyl's Recall for affinity matchups.

you dont seem to have much reliance or utilization of your own graveyard as a resource so Rest in Peace/Relic of Progenitus seem like a great option for hosing opponents with graveyard shenanigans.

Cleansing Wildfire/Alpine Moon seem like good options for dealing with somthing like Inkmoth Nexus... Blood Moon also works but its a bit high cmc and youd have to make sure you fetch a basic Plains/Island before playing it.

Because you are in a good countermagic spell could be Remand... it might buy you a turn against a combo deck like Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian and draw you a card.

For all that this deck is mucking around in a cool way, have you considered it as a Saheeli Rai flicker combo shell?

Cloning Ao seems really good, and Ao hits all the parts of that combo, while the combo works well with all the shepards, blade splicers and skyclaves.

It can be a chump blocker too, also since you have a good amount of artifacts you can use them offensively.
The big Problem of your deck is that it does nothing if Saheeli Rai gets removed from the deck with cards like Necromentia, Surgical Extraction or even "blocked out" with cards like Damping Matrix if you don't have an answer to that.
I recommend cutting 1x Mountain and 1x Sacred Foundry and test with 2x Urza's Saga and see if it works out for you.
