Commander Legends Update 11/21/2020
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.

Ral Zarek IN, Daretti, Scrap Savant OUT because daretti hasn't performed very well and i think ral's untap ability can enable more shenanigans. Also his ultimate is really nice, especially if we get to copy it with ..
Clockspinning IN, Izzet Signet OUT: This is probably a mistake but I've been hitting a lot of mana rocks, not always having a place to put the mana. This would be the one to cut i think. Maybe 12 rocks is pushing it? Clockspinning may not be the best, but with enough mana this can ult a walker out of nowhere, which is how I've been winning games with the deck. Will test and see how it goes.
Training Center & Mana Confluence IN, Vivid Creek & Vivid Marsh OUT - these are just straight upgrades on all fronts. I'm glad i got these lands. The proliferation on the vivid lands was a cute idea, but just that

Hey, you're welcome, good update :)
Arcane Signet has been reprinted in Commander Legends, it could replace any one of the Diamonds or Mind Stone. Path of Ancestry is a good tribal land even though it always ETB tapped; the repeatable scry by casting a Pirate is worth it. Unclaimed Territory is another budget tribal land. These two lands could replace Shimmering Grotto and Unknown Shores.
If you're willing to spend a little more for lands than Training Center from Commander Legends and Riverglide Pathway Flip from Zendikar Rising are more Izzet lands. They could replace Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds.
