Commander Legends Update 11/21/2020

In- Jeweled Lotus, Riverglide Pathway  Flip,Training Center,Hullbreacher, andRograkh, Son of Rohgahh

Out- 2xSnow-Covered Mountain, Shivan Reef,Narset, Parter of Veils, and Impulse

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.
