Truefire Captain Discussion

9-lives on Aikido of the Inward Eye

The problem with the Zirda companion combos is that all I've seen do cycling then Zenith Flare .

If I got rid of those two cards, I could have Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and maybe some other card?? The Akroan War is only useful if their P/T has less T than P, which means I can get rid of Rollick of Abandon . And Truefire Captain isn't absolutely necessary.

With Zirda, I can use Soulfire Grand Master 's ability for only 2 mana to bounce my instants and sorceries. That's really all I can use Zirda for, though. Kind of a waste of trading one crappy strategy for another.

Should I get rid of Truefire Captain for Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a companion?? If so, what should I put in Truefire Captain 's' place? Mutiny ? Or Deflecting Palm ? Anything would be nice.

legendofa on Activated Ability? Embalm and Mentor?

The fastest way to tell:

Does it have a colon ":"? If yes, it's activated. (This includes reminder text, see Sacred Cat .)

Does it have one of the words "when," "whenever," or "at?" If yes, it's a triggered ability. (Also includes reminder text, see Truefire Captain .)

Does it have neither? It's not activated or triggered.

Is Embalm an activated ability? Or Mentor? I'm trying to fit Zirda, the Dawnwaker into my deck, but I fear that having Sacred Cat and Truefire Captain are both non-activated ability cards.

Looks good! These might interest you: Arcbond, Gideon's Sacrifice, Martyrdom, Sunforger, Saving Grace, Repercussion, Chandra's Ignition, Mogg Maniac, Spiteful Sliver, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine, Vigor, Polyraptor, Rite of Passage, Cacophodon, Sporeweb Weaver.

Also I must disagree with gavriel1136 regarding Blazing Sunsteel since it can deal infinite damage with Stuffy Doll or an indestructible reckoner-type creature.

Spitemare, Stormwild Capridor, and Truefire Captain all go very nicely with Damage-based board wipes. I'd also love to see other show these cards some love!

Here are some cards you might consider that seem interesting:

Pyrostatic Pillar as a second Flame Zealot

Loyal Unicorn, The Wanderer as redundancy for Tajic's damage prevention.

Hour of Devastation, Blasphemous Act as one-sided wipes.

Stormwild Capridor, Truefire Captain, Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter to play of the idea of damaging your own creatures.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell for more damage Outputs.

Outpost Siege, maybe Valakut Exploration, Syr Carah, the Bold as card draw.

Hey, nice version of Jared. I'm not a fan of Jared, but I can see you have put a lot of thought into your deck and you have overall very good card sense on a budget. Card draw shouldn't be a problem as long as you can keep the monarch :)

The manabase is lacking which is understandable because of the low budget. Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista are two of the better budget lands for Naya because they are two different land types, have interaction with lots of basic lands and they're Forest lands. Farseek, but also Nature's Lore, Three Visits (Commander Legends version), Skyshroud Claim and Wood Elves can all search for them and these five land ramp spells are among the best in Commander because they can ramp with a dual land. Some other good budget lands are: Battlefield Forge, Path of Ancestry and Naya Panorama.

Crop Rotation can tutor for Throne of the High City. Open the Armory can tutor for Pariah, Shield of the Oversoul or one of five equipment. Pariah is an important card to have more access too because you can't lose the monarch when Jared is enchanted with it.

Kami of False Hope is the white Spore Frog. Sun Titan is now less than $1 and is quite helpful since it can be repeatable reanimation: Jared, Pariah, Throne, Frog, Reckoner or any other 3 CMC/less permanent. Dromoka's Command is a good instant fight spell since it also gives another mode.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.
