Sawtooth Loon does exactly the same as Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain ; you bounce it back, draw two and put itself plus one card back, recast commander until you find Sawtooth Loon again, you net one card at this point. Repeat to draw your entire deck.

enpc is correct, not only Jace is mana intesive I can't use Food Chain mana to cast it. Sorry if I forgot to mention last time.

Can I ask why the include of Sawtooth Loon ? I get it cycles you through your deck but other than that what does it do? I figure I'm missing something there

Also in a previous comment you said that Jace, Wielder of Mysteries was to color intensive. Is it though when it's just another piece to the Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain combo when you're going off with Food Chain ?

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.

...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:

So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

Firstly, I love the approach of the deck. Dovescape makes for the ultimate lock-down, so let's focus on that as your win-con and revolve the deck around it.

Don't be afraid to include non-creature spells because of this, remember, that your non-creature spells are just going to turn into doves late-game anyways; use this to your advantage.

I agree with most of musicalsocks's suggestions, however:


Token Support

Strict Replacement

You can afford to be running 36-38 lands, so cut back there.Swap Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone for Commander's Sphere, Pillar of Origins, and Sol Ring?

Additionally, run Path of Ancestry instead of Ancient Ziggurat.

Sweet deck!

Your approach is a little unconventional, but really interesting. However I would definatly take out Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, since he has no synergy with the deck. Guardians of Meletis,Traveler's Amulet and Sawtooth Loon are far to weak for commander.

Since Brago flickers your creatures, you could add some golem that have the typical "does not untap unless..." clause since the will reenter the battlefield untapped. Mage-Ring Responder and Altar Golem or Phyrexian Colossus are some of these. Also you should stick some staples like Path to Exile in your deck. Karn Liberated is not only sweet but technically also a golem!

+1 for the idea!
