WalbenQuakeblade on Jhoira Vintage Commander

Commander Legends Update 11/21/2020

In- Jeweled Lotus, Riverglide Pathway  Flip,Training Center,Hullbreacher, andRograkh, Son of Rohgahh

Out- 2xSnow-Covered Mountain, Shivan Reef,Narset, Parter of Veils, and Impulse

Reasons for Changes:

With the release of Commander Legends Jhoira got a lot of new toys. I did miss the update on the inclusion of Riverglide Pathway  Flip, but with the release of Training Center it let the land changes be all inclusive. I decided to remove 2x Snow-Covered Mountains and Shivan Reef and replace them with Training Center, Riverglide Pathway  Flip, and Jeweled Lotus. I haven't been able to test if cutting a land for Lotus is the right choice yet, however I think in the long run it will be the right cut. The decision to cut Shivan Reef instead of the last Snow-Covered Mountain comes out of necessity for cards like Fabled Passage and Prismatic Vista. There will be games where finding a basic Mountain will be necessary so I decided to leave one in the deck at the cost of a pain land.

Next up the one for one swap of Narset, Parter of Veils for Hullbreacher. This is a swap I am very excited to see in future games. The ability to leave up mana on other players turns yet still have a Narset like effect is very appealing. Wheel of Fortune's and Timetwisters now give the deck mana instead of ripping our opponents hands apart. I see this as one of two potential downsides to the change. However by swapping we are able to hold up potential counter magic on other players turns, instead of possibly tapping out for Narset. Wheel and Twister also become net positive in mana when Hullbreacher is played EOT on an opponents turn. I am very excited to see how this change plays out.

The last change is Impulse for Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh. This is a change I danced around in my mind for a bit before deciding to pull the trigger. I have had very few games where Impulse really made a difference for me. Cutting a card for a 0 cost card that potentially draws me a card as long as Jhoira is in play seemed like a reasonable trade off as Impulse usually had been used to attempt to find another way to trigger Jhoira's ability. Another reason for the inclusion is that Rograkh can help us go infinite with Words of Wind. As long as we have Mana Crypt or Mana Vault in play we can remove every other players boards. This doesn't net us infinite mana but opponents with no boards seems very appealing.

Let me know what you think of the changes. Wild to think this deck is coming up on its 3rd year of me tinkering and making it more and more powerful. Its definitely getting to a point where finding cards to cut is getting near impossible, though the next cut will most likely be Teferi, Master of Time and it might be taken out to put Impulse back in and lower the curve. Thanks to everyone who has viewed and liked the deck.

How about Mouth of Ronom for some land utility/spot removal recurrable with Crucible of Worlds? All you'd have to do to accommodate it is add some Snow-Covered Mountains

How to Play:

Early game (Turns 1-4):

  1. Ramp: Try to have a hand of 2-3 lands/ramping cards. Opening hand should have a cheap ramp to bring out Purphoros, God of the Forge by turn 2-4.

  2. Set up field: If you have a control or ramp card, put it out. You want to protect your Commander and set up for a fight. Try not to bring out any token ramp cards until Purphoros, God of the Forge is out, pretty simple.

  3. Bring out Purphoros, God of the Forge. Watch your devotion stay below 5 and especially your opponent is playing , and has untapped mana!

Mid-Game (5-12):

  1. Create all the tokens!

  2. You should be winning and only need Purphoros, God of the Forge ability to set off 20 times (in a 40 life game). You need to be aggressive, because in multiplayer games, you will be the target. Purphoros, God of the Forge is not a great diplomat.

Late Game (+13):

  1. Purphoros, God of the Forge probably died once or something. Just keep building up your control, draw, Purphoros, God of the Forge comes out again, and continue to create more tokens.

  2. Infinite Combos with cards like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

  3. Very powerful attacks with Chandra's Spitfire (especially if it's a multiplayer game) with Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hellrider ETB triggers

Control/Drawing:

-Ensnaring Bridge: severely limits creature attacks since keeping a decent sized hand can be difficult with the low mana cost of the deck

-Glacial Chasm: In the event that something go's awry, you can use Glacial Chasm for a couple rounds to prevent damage to you while setting up your board so you can sacrifice it.

-Chaos Warp

-Wheel of Fortune: Wheels and other cards similar help both you in getting the cards you need, as well as controlling the opponents because they have to cycle their hand as well, potentially taking away their vital plays.

-Reforge the Soul

-Valakut Awakening  Flip

-Magus of the Wheel

-Defense Grid: Making your opponent pay more mana in order to play out of turn.

-Price of Glory: Makes your opponent destroy whatever lands they used out of turn.

-Meekstone: Inhibits larger creatures from attacking.

-Vandalblast

-Grafdigger's Cage: prevents players that depend on playing from their graveyard/library.

Destruction:

None of the boardwipe cards will affect Purphoros even as a creature since he's indestructable

-Nevinyrral's Disk

-Goblin Sharpshooter+Basilisk Collar

-Jokulhaups (try to get Norin the Wary out with Purphoros, God of the Forge before playing)

-Price of Glory mitigates people playing out of turn by costing them land sources that they tapped.

-Starstorm

-Vandalblast

Extra Synergy:

Adding these, in addition to your Purphoros, God of the Forge trigger will make him much more potent. You definitely will not be a diplomat at the table and will be targeted with extreme prejudice!

-Impact Tremors: Basically does the same thing as Purphoros, God of the Forge, except for 1 damage instead of 2. Can be added to Purphoros, God of the Forge trigger for additional damage. It's also a good substitute in the event that you can't cast Purphoros, God of the Forge for whatever reason

-Panharmonicon: Makes your ETB triggers activate a 2nd time

-Fiery Emancipation: makes sources you control deal triple their normal damage. Purphoros, God of the Forge would deal 6 damage per creature before adding anything like Impact Tremors or Panharmonicon. If Purphoros, God of the Forge is actually a creature, he's swinging for coup de grâce and dealing all 21 commander damage to the opponent if you use his ability 1 time.

-Chandra's Spitfire: Every time Purphoros, God of the Forge or Hellrider would deal damage to an opponent, this creature gets an additional +3/0. If you're playing a 4 player game, 1 trigger from Purphoros, God of the Forge gives Chandra's Spitfire a +9/0. Couple that with Hellrider and it gets really bad, really quick!

Infinite Combo / Win Conditions:

-Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Zealous Conscripts: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker makes a copy of the Zealous Conscripts which untaps Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make another copy of Zealous Conscripts...

-Zealous Conscripts+Twinflame: Tap Conscripts to make a copy of itself and tap the next Conscript and make a copy and Tap that one...

-Dualcaster Mage+Heat Shimmer / Twinflame: Heat Shimmer or Twinflame targets a creature. While on stack, use Dualcaster Mage to target Heat Shimmer. In turn the Dualcaster Mage will make a copy of Heat Shimmer which targets and makes a copy of Dualcaster Mage...

-Basilisk Collar+Goblin Sharpshooter: Goblin Sharpshooter targets a creature with his ability once Basilisk Collaris equipped, killing the targeted creature, which untaps Goblin Sharpshooter. Repeat until enemy board is cleared.

-Ashnod's Altar+Nim Deathmantle+ETB creature with at least one token: infinite ETB triggers, and if the ETB creature produces more than one, you also have infinite mana!

-Extraplanar Lens+Mountain: Use Snow-Covered Mountain or Mountain in your deck and get it "Imprinted" by the Lens. Snow-Covered Mountain are preferred because they aren't played as much as the basic Mountain, doing so means that only you (theoretically) can benefit for twice the amount of land on turn 3. It's sort of fragile, because having your Lens blown up on you (and it will be a big target) means being behind the curve.

-Basalt Monolith+Rings of Brighthearth: Tap Basalt Monolith to add 3 to your mana pool. Untap it using its own activate ability. Copy the ability using the Rings of Brighthearth trigger. You will start to make 6 using 5 (3 to untap and 2 to copy). Keep doing it for infinite mana.

Rasaru Here is what I took out for Nahiri's Lithoforming,Valakut Exploration, and Valakut Awakening  Flip:

  • Mind's Eye - I think Lithoforming and Exploration are both stronger cards in this deck.

  • Torbran, Thane of Red Fell - While strong, with the addition of Fiery Emancipation and this being a damage increaser on a body, I think this is the weakest damage amplifier at the moment.

  • Snow-Covered Mountainx1 - I will have to see how big the impact this has on my mulligans and draws. I've been able to more than double the amount of draw the deck had even a year ago, but I'm not sure if that is enough to cut the land count down any further.

  • I've decided against Lithoform Engine for now.

With the potential of a Commander Legends to add a few more cards to this deck, namely Jeska's Will, Jeweled Lotus, and maybe Wheel of Misfortune I am looking for a few cards to cut.

As always it feels impossible.

I feel like the two weakest may be Goblin War Drums, and I never thought I would say this but Disrupt Decorum. Thoughts anyone?

I am also considering adding Goblin Engineer at that point to capitalize on Lotus, Crucible of Worlds for the interaction with Nahiri's Lithoforming, and all the artifacts I am likely to get with Dockside Extortionist.

Additionally, I completely forgot Cavalier of Flame was a thing. Might be a good finisher, especially with Fiery Emancipation in the deck.

I'm going to parrot something that was said before (and this obviously isn't about Zendikar which we're all looking at closely but OP hasn't made the change yet and really should) and say this deck needs to add Field of the Dead. Drop Reliquary Tower, put in Field and split half your basics over to snow covered (7 Forest basics, 7 Snow-Covered Forest and 3 Mountain basics, 3 Snow-Covered Mountain). I have this deck in paper (and basically this exact list minus a couple lands like Cradle and Taiga) and it's far too easy to start pumping out zombies on top of everything else. It synergizes extremely well with what the deck (token doublers, ramp, etb damage effects, draw card effects, sac outlets, etc etc etc) is doing and takes nothing away from the deck. It's an absolute upgrade and OP should make the change.

seems pretty good! the only things i can think of is maybe Trinisphere for moooaaarrr prison tech? possibly go full blown skred-red with Skred and Snow-Covered Mountains with Scrying Sheets? Relic of Progenitus with Eternal Scourge can be wonderfully nasty if going that route.

-1 Snow-Covered Mountain

-1 Madblind Mountain

+1 Arid Mesa

+1 Scalding Tarn

With the addition of Conspicuous Snoop, and the successful trial of Experimental Frenzy, having control over my own topdeck has become more important. Madblind does a decent job, mostly because of the Mountain subtype, but coming in tap can be a real detriment, mostly because we are running very land lean.
