Jace's Legacy: Persistent Petitioners edition

Pioneer Combo UB (Dimir)

CleverCombo Iydak

This week, Lydia and JJ took some new topics for a spin. First, we reviewed our deckbuilding process, and not just another guide on how to select lands or build a curve. Instead we created a list of universal questions that help create the shape of any style deck.

Tune in to Clever Combo S4E6 to hear us discuss our deckbuilding guide and live-build our respective decks.

After that we took a dive into a listener suggested combo using Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Lost Legacy , and any card that allows any number of copies. For the first time we built our decks live on the air!

Lydia ended up with a Persistent Petitioners deck that splashes in a couple Fraying Sanity , and a playset of Ipnu Rivulet to try to gain extra self-mill value. 30 Petitioners rounds out the deck. Fabled Passage and a test copy of Evolving Wilds will help thin out the deck, especially after a Lost Legacy.

JJ opted for Shadowborn Apostle which also allows any number of copies. Being cheaper and needing 6 (rather than 4 like Petitioners) means we’ll need some easy draw, so we added Castle Locthwain . Since we hope to have 5 or 6 of them, we also decided to test a pair of Westvale Abbey  . If we manage to land 6 apostles, we can sac them to fetch Demonlord Belzenlok who helps empty the graveyard

We also considered a Rat Colony deck, which would allow us to build a small army of ever-growing rats to hide behind while we look for our Jace and LL.

If you try either deck, leave us a comment to let us know how it goes. Check out JJ’s Shadowborn Apostle build: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jaces-legacy-shadowborn-apostle-edition
