Strider Harness Discussion
9 months ago
Have you thought about putting any haste effects in the list (e.g. Strider Harness )? You could also top out at End-Raze Forerunners if you lose access to Great Oak Guardian . Touch of Vitae is also decent here.

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.
Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .
I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.
For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety
I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head

I'm trying to do a commander deck but im wondering if a creature that is tapped because it attacked with Strider Harness equipped but what if i use Manifold Key to untap the Strider Harness ? Would only the artifact untap or both the creature and the artifact untaps?

All of these cards work well when you are running basically just mountains, running blue splits their power, and using non basics reduces their effectiveness even further. Downhill Charge , Granite Grip , and Seismic Strike .
These cards are ok, but don’t really work with your primary concept. Titan's Strength I like this for the scry, and if it drew a card it’d be fine, but as a combat trick it’s pretty meh. Kavu Scout is at most a 2/2 for two in this deck. Kraken's Eye is pretty passive life gain, but it’s not going to win the game for you, and it is pretty unlikely to save you too (it does improve with some of the buy back spells I list later). The problem with Akroan Crusader is that if we cut the combat tricks this card becomes way weaker, and even with the tricks, it’s not got a high likelihood of having both at the same time. Why would we run that when we can run cards like Crackling Drake ?
Strider Harness is good, but it is over costed for what it does.
Whisk Away I’m not loving this card, it is alright. It’s just low bang for the buck.
As for some cards that might help things, the issue I see is that your plan has a lot of draw, and some control, but not a lot of ways to win. As it is your commander is basically the only way you have of making use of the draw, out side of trying to win with Jace. Winning with Jace is gonna be tough cause you have to draw him, and then mill through your deck, it is possible just hard. So most of the suggestions are cards that work well with casting a lot of draw spells, or removal. This makes your plan of drawing a lot of cards do something other than drawing a lot of cards. Just like your commander they are all going to do something when you draw, or cast a spell. Talrand, Sky Summoner , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Murmuring Mystic , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , Guttersnipe , and Psychosis Crawler are all great for your deck.
Swarm Intelligence is great for casting a lot of spells.
A thing that might happen is running out of gas. So cards that give repeated use like flashback and buy back are huge. They mean you’ll always have something to do, and offer more value because of your cards that trigger on spell cast, or card draw. Some good examples include Mystic Retrieval , Fanning the Flames , Whispers of the Muse , Shattering Pulse , and though it is a little bit more expensive Capsize which is incredibly powerful and super annoying for other people to deal with if they can’t outright counter it.
AEtherize is just a super good card for the deck.
Your deck should basically just draw a whole lot of cards, and having the mana to play them is super important. I’d likely look at increasing the number of mana rocks (artifacts that make mana) in there, and making sure that you’re never hurting for your second color. Some solid suggestions for that are Izzet Signet , Izzet Cluestone , Commander's Sphere , Izzet Boilerworks , Terramorphic Expanse , Desolate Lighthouse , and Memorial to Genius is just great for your draw plan.

if your looking for lifelink, I'd argue that Basilisk Collar is better on narset than loxodon warhammer due to deathtouch interacting with her first strike.
just my 2 cents. good concept!

Made a few changes:
- Removed Ancient Den (was only there for Cranial Plating ) and went up the 4x each of the cycling and fetch lands to maximize card draw and landfall triggers
- Swapped out Darksteel Axe for Bonesplitter - I think the lower CMC is more valuable than the indestructible
- Removed Sunlance entirely for another Armed Response - the instant speed is way better and hopefully the deck should ramp quick enough for it to be worth the higher CMC
- That also made room for 1x Strider Harness to get some possible hastiness on the battlefield. Considering making it 2x and cutting the Accorder's Shield
Sticking with the splash of black for now as I think it makes the sideboard way stronger for this deck.

Game One: regular
Ravenous Slime out, cast Blasphemous Act , killing everything except the slime, then cast Tectonic Break for 7, leaving opponents with 2 and 1 land. (one opponent had already been taken out by a lethal attack from another one). Attack twice with the 58/58 slime for the win
Game Two: star
Died to Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire after three swings with Strider Harness (should have realized it was a three turn kill). Resolved boundless realms for 12 but died before I could use the land. vivicutus killing omnath twice really killed me, plus having no way to kill vivictus. Might need more creature removal. Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire with Helm of the Host really took over the game because me and his other opponent had no creature removal.
Game Three: star
Right opponent had Repercussion and I played Chain Reaction to kill one opponent )dealing 21(=7x3), the mono red player (R op) was down to one land because I played Tectonic Break for three, me and my left hand partner both won because we killed the mutual opponent (and my right hand op and his left hand op were dead)
Game Four: star
Ghalta, Primal Hunger player (my R ally) killed my left ally, then I took my right opponent out after casting Tectonic Break for his four lands. Right op concedes, then ghalta attacks my left opponent and I finish him off with Omnath plus tokens, with Greater Good backup for 9 more sac damage and then Magmatic Force to close it out forsure because he would take 3 his upkeep, the 3 more R ally, then 3 on mine. (we had to finish up quick because the shop was closing). Me and right ally won together.
op: opponent, r: right
star: multiplayer format - TLDR:5 player game, the two people sitting directly on your left and right are your allied (therefore not your opponents, for cards that say that. plus you cannot attack them). The two other people are your opponents and you win if they both die.

Ok here is an idea, what if we have Goblin Motivator that we toss and use Lazav, the Multifarious to copy it or maybe splash some red so we cast it so we can give Etrata haste? this would give Lazav another use and also it would replace the Strider Harness since it is too slow
