Sanguinolency on Kinnan, combo prodigy

3 months ago

Pretty solid list so far, I have a few suggestions though. First and foremost, if you haven't checked out the cEDH decklist database, I recommend it. If you're truly wanting to get in to cEDH, then that is a good outlet for deck brewing. There are a bunch of cards in your list that are solid picks for a Kinnan deck, but there are also some that aren't up to snuff with the meta, but that's not a necessarily bad thing. Competitive EDH is about play the most powerful cards in the your color pie to achieve your overall win condition and to do it as efficient and consistent as possible. Kinnan is quite new and people are still trying to find the best way to brew the deck, but his strategy is undoubtedly proactive, so we have to try to overwhelm our opponents as fast as possible.

Here are the cards in your deck that you just don't see in the cEDH meta. Not a bad thing, just something to consider.

Your mana dorks are higher in CMC that the meta heavy mana dorks. This puts them being cast usually around turn two, which is when you want to be casting Kinnan.

Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves are more reliable turn one creatures. Maybe try cutting Silver Myr, Maraleaf Pixie, and Quirion Elves for these.

Arcum's Astrolabe - It's just way too circumstantial, especially when you only have 6 snow lands in the deck. This card would be dead in your hand most of the time. There are also better mana rocks.

Mind Stone has been sub-par for a while. In cEDH, you want to get plenty of mana as soon as possible so you can start setting up for win quickly. This is why Grim Monolith and Mana Vault are very prevalent in the meta. They are net positive mana rocks that come in quickly.

Whir of Invention and Blue Sun's Zenith are on the cusp of being played in the meta and not, mostly Blue Sun's Zenith as it's used to help draw the deck after getting infinite mana. Usually you see these more in mono blue decks because they have plenty of blue to pay the non-generic mana and can go big with the X cost, however, once you leave mono blue it's very difficult to keep up mana for interaction after casting these and usually when X is greater than 2, it's worth someone countering it. If they're countered, the feel bads set in as you're now 5-6 mana behind. I would suggest cutting at least Whir of Inventions for a cantrip like Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain that nets you cards for cheap.

Chord of Calling - Most of the creatures in your deck are very low cmc, so I don't think the redundancy of a Green Sun's Zenith is needed, especially when it costs 2 additional green mana.

Force of Vigor - It's not bad, I've seen a few decks run it that are more on the control side, but Kinnan is trying to be more proactive than reactive. Blue has some of the best removal in the game for cheap. Maybe consider a Chain of Vapor. That way if there is a problematic card for you on the board such as Cursed Totem or Linvala, Keeper of Silence, you can hit it regardless of what it is for one mana regardless of whose turn it is.

Ghost Quarter - if you need to get rid of a problematic land, I suggest Strip Mine over this, as it doesn't have the downside of letting the opponent replace the land.

With Tree of Tales and Seat of the Synod it's better off to just run basic lands, in case you encounter Back to Basics or Blood Moon.

There are a few suggestions I'd like to make for you to add that are practically staples for most of the cEDH Kinnan decks:

Seedborn Muse to help you use your commander more and acquire an overwhelming board state.

Training Grounds and Biomancer's Familiar to reduce the cost of Kinnan's activation.

Grim Monolith, Mana Vault, and Fellwar Stone as they're some of the best mana rocks in the format.

Right now, if you were to play a game with this list, I wouldn't be afraid of you activating Kinnan because there's nothing that will severely impact the game. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is in a lot of the other cEDH decks because getting this guy on the field is detrimental to every opponent's strategy. I suggest you get a higher creature count and put more scary things in the deck. You'll whiff a lot with on activations with a creature count that low.

Here is a link to my current Kinnan build that has been assembling win (in a vaccum) very consistently between turns 3 and 4: Kinnan Activations cEDH

one of my favorite mana dorks is Simian Spirit Guide but a Silver Myr Gold Myr & Iron Myr may help and provide chump fodder on the field

Parce que c'est plus facile l'écrire ici:

Je couperais de ta liste présente Gold Myr , Silver Myr , Palladium Myr , All That Glitters et Ethereal Armor . Je sais que tu voulais garder un peu de voltron, mais je ne pense pas que ça serait une si bonne idée finalement vu la direction que tu prends pour le deck d'abuser les tokens.

Hey, good job for your first Commander deck. Nice Tezzeret the Seeker :)

When on a budget for the manabase it's better to rely on basic lands and dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. These can replace dual lands that will always ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Azorius Guildgate and Dismal Backwater . The Guildgates and Life lands are not better than a basic land.

Lands within the budget to consider adding:

Land to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Jwar Isle Refuge
  • Vivid Creek
  • Dimir Aqueduct
  • Temple of Deceit
  • Temple of Silence

I see too many creatures that don't interact with Alela. Nonartifact/enchantment creatures don't have much interaction with Alela. My advice is cut a lot of these creatures for more artifacts, artifact creatures and enchantments. You have Tezzeret that's a good reason to expand on artifacts.

Lots of mana rocks are good with Alela because they can be used to make ramp to play her faster and then after she's on the battlefield they can create Faeries. I see you have the Signets already which is great, but consider more budget mana rocks?

Three drop mana rocks such as Coalition Relic which you have are fine, but if you can replace a three drop mana rock such as Obelisk of Esper , Mana Geode with a one or two drop mana rock then this will help your deck.

Consider cutting the creature base down to only a few? Keep: Strix, Architect, Shimmer Myr, Simulacrum, Assembly, Master, Seer, Rider, Titan? Can then replace the other creatures with more artifacts/enchantments to make more interaction with Alela.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Etherium Sculptor and Foundry Inspector are good as low mana cost artifacts that reduce the mana cost of all other artifacts you cast. CMC artifacts are free for you to cast with one of these on the battlefield which can help to chain cast artifacts and make a lot of Faeries. Casting two drop mana rocks for is also good. Sai, Master Thopterist and Mirrodin Besieged are three drops that any artifact you cast after creates an artifact creature token.

If you're wanting to attack with a large Faerie/Thopter army then Bident of Thassa and Cranial Plating are cards that you want. Bident can be busted repeatable draw with attacking flying creatures. Cranial is good to equip to Alela since she has flying and the damage she does to a player is Commander damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a deceptively powerful two drop artifact with Faeries. The life loss this can do will add up fast since it's repeatable at your end step making all your opponents lose life not just one.

Good luck with your deck.

I would recomend losing the focus on tap lands and look more at mana rocks/dorks (maybe even some fetches) for color fixing. It will be hard to storm off with only getting one mana a turn. With the Clock of Omens every rock and dork counts as at least 1 and 1/2 mana. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice would work well for rocks. For dorks the tried-and-true Hedron Crawler , Silver Myr , Iron Myr , and Plague Myr

Also I would recomend Counterspell over Stoic Rebuttal

For creature you could look at Riddlesmith (to double on draw engine), Artificer's Assistant (to fix drawing and avoid mana flood), and maybe even Mirror Image to copy a creature for a little extra value. ( Mirror of the Forebears would be a better pick over Mirror Image if you have it)

For mana I would do basics over tap lands every day of the week. If you can get cards like Steam Vents that come in untapped more power to you. Mana Severance is a high risk high reward card that would synergize great with storm.

I love the build though, these are just suggestions and ideas. I have over half the decklist in my cart on TCG now! Keep up the good work!!

I don't know if you will ever see this again or need it because it is such a late response, but it is best to put in 2 cost or lower artifacts to get that easy card draw from Jhoira.The main way the deck should win is to draw out all your cards. You'll need Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries to do this. then just pretty much load up your deck with mana rock artifacts such as Manakin or Silver Myr . Lastly, you'll need some counterspells and some artifacts that are really good, such as Aetherflux Reservoir . Oh, and you will definitely need cost reduction creatures/artifacts. The ones I use are Semblance Anvil , Etherium Sculptor , Jhoira's Familiar , Herald of Kozilek , and Foundry Inspector . A couple of infinite/ win combos you can use would be: Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter . Those two require you to tap two mana to cast a copy of dramatic reversal, so if you tap two of your artifact mana rocks, you can untap all your artifacts. Ancestral Statue can also bounce itself back to your hand, so if you have enough cost reduction to make it free, you basically draw unlimited cards until you win.
