Umezawa's Jitte Discussion

shadow63 The Umezawa's Jittes were next on my cut list. Dark Depths is kind of a slow payoff, though, especially without Krark-Clan Ironworks. I'll make the switch and see how it feels.

I spot someone looking to play my favourite dragon!

First off, what's your budget like? You're running cards such as Mana Drain so I'm going to assume a high budget at least for this comment.

Starting with your lands, you generally want to avoid cards that always enter tapped. This especially goes for a more aggressive list like this where you don't want to be waiting until the next turn for your mana. I recommend dropping all of the lands you have that enter tapped including Temple of the False God, and instead look at picking up others like Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, Seachrome Coast, Nimbus Maze, Skycloud Expanse, Port Town, or even just replacing them with basic Islands/Plains. If you have a lot of money to burn there's always cards like Ancient Tomb, Cavern of Souls, and of course fetchlands.

I highly recommend picking up a Stoneforge Mystic and Batterskull if you can afford them, they go extremely well together. Umezawa's Jitte is another really good piece of equipment but also is a bit more on the expensive side. I recommend cutting Whispersilk Cloak as Shroud makes you unable to equip Ojutai with anything, and Swiftfoot Boots is redundant due to Ojutai's natural hexproof. If you want another way to protect him, there's cheap options such as Sword of Vengeance which gives him a tonne of stuff.

For enchantments definitely look at Aqueous Form, cheap and fills the niche you were going for with Whispersilk Cloak. Battle Mastery and Daybreak Coronet are also fairly good Auras.

As for other cards there's Fabricate, Steelshaper's Gift, and Enlightened Tutor if you want to get pricy. I also recommend cutting Karn's Temporal Sundering, Time Warp, and Ojutai, Soul of Winter since they won't help you in your overall gameplan much.

Apologies for the wall of text, but I hope some of this helps!

Umezawa's Jitte is a good card, but I personally would be totally fine exchanging it with a third sword.

Player3.14 on Sword of Body and Mind …

EleshNornsFs - The protections are the big thing, though the creature is nice in case I run into sac effects like Plaguecrafter. I actually do have both Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes and I can fetch them up with Ranger-Captain of Eos or the more flexible Recruiter of the Guard. (With only three CMC1 creatures, I'm not sure how much I'd like Ranger of Eos; I'm not sure it does enough for 4 mana). Thank you for the suggestion!

DuTogira - wow, I completely forgot about Umezawa's Jitte. I was a modern player (I only play casually now) so I've always thought of that card as "off limits." But that's a great suggestion! And the price isn't so bad either; it's cheaper than most of the Mirran Swords.

My commander is Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and so I do think the protection from blue is relevant as most creature theft spells are in blue, and having her stolen would be disastrous, though I have some exile removal and Homeward Path. Do you think creature theft would be relevant here? Is this the best way to go about stopping it?

I also like how the protections make her unblockable against the appropriate colors, as with such a large commander, commander damage is a very viable wincon, and it helps get Worldslayer through, too.

Peligrad - Sure! I was mostly focused on the "mill 10" portion of the sword as part of a general discussion, but ultimately, I do want to improve the deck and it seems that the strength of Sword of Body and Mind is much more context-dependent anyway, especially compared to the other swords. Thank you for the offer!

The deck is here:

Previously, this build was listed as "private" up until today as I ironed things out, so please excuse the hastily written description.

DuTogira on Sword of Body and Mind …

I’m just gonna come out and say it:
You’re in mono white. You need draw engines, card advantage, any way to get ahead. The last thing you need is more creatures on the board to encourage frequent wrath effects.
Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, and Umezawa's Jitte are the only “does something in combat” equipments you should be running, and they’re definitely worth the cost. Sword of Body and Mind is ok in 60 card Singleton, but it does way too little in EDH to be worth running. Blue and green as a color combo are so laughably lite on removal that the protections aren’t going to do much for you. I’d consider Sword of Sinew and Steel as a better “budget” sword if you really want to avoid the price tag on fire and ice.

Orange+ on Sram-Man

Also, if you don't mind spending some bucks, there are plenty of really OP equipments you could swap in. If Im correct, you would want to be able to cast many of them cheaply (to activate the Sram-man), but equipments like Umezawa's Jitte and Sword of Fire and Ice aren't much more mana costly than the ones you already run.

On a side note, I misread your deckname one too many times as "SCram-man" as in "get out of here!-man" :P . That did not fit well at all with the deck..
