I Recently have been playing more EDH lately and have been enjoying it... I got ahold of the 2018 Saheeli, the Gifted precon deck and have been modifying it.... i decided to go the route of focusing on getting a critical mass of artifacts/rocks/tokens and using her 2nd +1 ability for getting big mana to dump into a big spell like Crackle with Power or similar to win the game.

Any advice would be appreciated pretty new to the format in general.

dramaege on What is Your Opinion of …

Abaques I see what you're saying and have seen lots of stories like this before, however I personally think that that is just a rule 0 thing. As well, when I'm saying optimized, I'm not saying in terms of power, I just mean to be able to consistently do the thing you want to do every game.

Using Kaalia of the Vast as an example, every game I would love to draw at least 1-3 angels, dragons, or demons since that's the whole reason I'm playing Kaalia of the Vast. Now, those angels, dragons, and demons can vary wildly in power, but I at least want that consistently.

If I'm playing a deck that doesn't allow me to do that every game, my game experience is going to be diminished as a whole. As well, one thing I find with "optimized" decks is that games are shorter, lots of commander games I play with unoptimized decks go from 1-3 hours, with multiple playgroups, and many times people didn't get to do the fun thing with their deck they wanted to so one person is usually a little disappointed at the end.

I think most people, if given the opportunity would not turn down "fix it" cards, if offered. Like for example if the cards were exactly the same price, would anyone deny using an OG dual lands, shocks, and some fetches if they understood how much better they were? Especially if they play with 3 or more colors? At the end of the day there are better versions of multiple cards that in a vacuum, no one would not play.

Also, it allows people who love trying things out and deckbuilding so much more freedom than buying cards.

How terrible of a feeling is it to spend 50$ on a card you swear is gunna be great in your deck, just to have it fall flat and go into the box? I have been building a Saheeli, the Gifted deck that has gone through a dozen changes over years because she was my first commander and I really wanted to make her work.

Some of the strategies that worked best with her that I ended up trying were eldrazi ramping, and well, every eldrazi is 50$. I think I had spent over 600$ on different cards that ended up being cycled out over my years of testing before I got her to a spot that I liked. With proxying, the testing would have costed the cost of ink and paper, and I wouldn't have had to have waited the days, weeks, and sometimes months just to get the cards in the mail, sometimes with the cards being damaged which wasn't fun.

Ultimately to me, regardless of the power level of the decks you want to build, giving players access to the whole roster of cards allows them to do more things and explore more ideas.

Maybe your players want to play at "4/10" power level, maybe they all LOOOVE CEDH but have 10$ between them, maybe they want to play jank decks with out of print rare cards, ALL OF THIS IS AWESOME, but give them ALL the tools to do that.

I don't support proxying in any "official" setting, as of course LGS's and WoTC has their own prerogative to support their own product, and whenever I play at my LGS, proxy or not, I try to throw money at them, but I really don't see any legitimate reason to take deck-building tools out of the hands of the players, at the end of the day, some cards are just too expensive, and we shouldn't push people out of the MTG hobby by price-checking them when MTG finally "clicks" for them and they want to be spending hours deckbuilding, theorycrafting, and trying new things out.

Hi there.

Really like the deck you have created. I am wondering if you would consider a couple of cards. I have a deck with a couple of artifacts/creatures I think would be useful but I'll leave that up to you.

I have Shimmer Dragon in the deck to increase card draw. With a ton of tokens, you could draw a ton of cards. (Also it will be hexproof most likely)

In any red artifact deck, I would recommend Hellkite Igniter because for two mana you can boost the damage exponentially. (I've ended up one-shotting a couple of friends.

I don't know how much mana your deck makes exactly so maybe this wouldn't be the best but Saheeli, the Gifted is great for reducing mana costs. Finally, I would recommend that you add a couple of board wipes or the Torment of Hailfire that is already on your sideboard. I would recommend Saheeli's directive but you don't have enough artifacts to make that worthwhile so I don't think that's a great choice.

This is just me rambling so don't think about it too much. Keep doing what you are doing! +1

FalconForce on Staring Contest: A List of Blink-Effect Cards

1 year ago

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Token clone makers

Stolen Identity Blade of Selves Mirror Mockery Zndrsplt's Judgment Repudiate / Replicate Hour of Eternity Supplant Form Dance of Many Minion Reflector Bramble Sovereign Progenitor Mimic Anointed Procession Quasiduplicate Rhys the Redeemed Back from the Brink Dual Nature Mimic Vat Rite of Replication Song of the Worldsoul Helm of the Host Doubling Season Parallel Lives Battle for Bretagard Mechanized Production Orvar, the All-Form Prototype Portal Saheeli, the Gifted Saheeli's Artistry Seance Second Harvest Soul Foundry Spitting Image Splinter Twin Replication Technique Saheeli Rai Mirror March Mirrorworks Molten Echoes Mythos of Illuna Sublime Epiphany Flamerush Rider Felhide Spiritbinder Littjara Mirrorlake God-Pharaoh's Gift Hofri Ghostforge Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Followed Footsteps Nightmare Shepherd Osgir, the Reconstructor Echo Storm Cackling Counterpart Esika's Chariot Feldon of the Third Path Flameshadow Conjuring Trickster's Talisman & of course anything with populate.

Also some other blink type cards:

Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

That would be

Mycosynth Wellspring , Seize the Spoils , Phyrexian Metamorph , Trail of Evidence , Pirate's Pillage , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Curse of Opulence , Blasphemous Act , Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin , Mirrodin Besieged , Saheeli, the Gifted , Mystic Retrieval , Relic of Progenitus / Tormod's Crypt , Star of Extinction , Cyclonic Rift , Comet Storm , Chaos Warp , Loyal Apprentice , Thopter Spy Network , Sai, Master Thopterist , Hypersonic Dragon , Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Ravenform , Memnarch , Liquimetal Coating , Blatant Thievery , and Inspiring Statuary .

I did that with the following code:

[[mycosynth wellspring]], [[seize the spoils]], [[phyrexian Metamorph]], [[trail of evidence]], [[pirate's pillage]], [[saheeli, Sublime Artificer]], [[Curse of opulence]], [[Blasphemous act]], [[ghost quarter]]/[[field of ruin]], [[Mirrodin Besieged]], [[Saheeli the Gifted]], [[mystic retrieval]], [[relic of progenitus]]/[[tormod's crypt]], [[star of extinction]], [[cyclonic rift]], [[comet storm]], [[chaos warp]], [[Loyal apprentice]], [[thopter spy network]], [[Sai, Master Thopterist]], [[Hypersonic Dragon]], [[Padeem, Consul of Innovation]], [[Ravenform]], [[Memnarch]], [[liquimetal coating]], [[Blatant Thievery]], and [[Inspiring statuary]]

quick suggestion...I would say switch Saheeli, the Gifted with Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain since most of your deck is historic spells and, card draw is better than tokens and 1 spell costing less a turn. this is just my opinion but I would suggest that. and if you aren't able to play in your pods lately I would suggest it is a great website with no budget restriction for free.

PabloEsco666: thanks for sharing your deck, I also see many common strategies between Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Saheeli, the Gifted. Both are related very much to artifacts and play some sort of combination to win the game. However, my deck is not crafed as an cEDH deck, although you have many nice ideas included in your Jhoira, Trailer Park Supervisor [cEDH]-deck I might be consider for sure!

I like your deck as well and yeah - let Izzet Artifacts rock the house! ;)
