Urza’s Saga has done wonders for this deck, and I’ve been doing a lot of winning (six 5-0 trophies in my last nine leagues). I’ve been working on Mystic Forge combo for a really long time, and hope that my approach to the deck and matchups has value to anyone looking to take this deck for a spin.
Hey fam, it’s been a hwile since I dropped an update for SisayElk, the combo deck that plays both Sisay, Weatherlight Captain and Jegantha the Wellspring as her companion.
This video is basically a video form of what’s in my primer, with some of the information cleaned up to match the latest version of the deck that has been playing very well. If you’re not interested/don’t like watching videos to get this info, you can just read my primer to get mostly the same information. (I’ll be updating my primer too to catch up with this video)
For those who don’t know the deck, SisayElk is a proactive combo deck that leverages its unique advantage of having “the entire combo” accessible to you, providing a very streamlined gameplan with simpler mulligan choices.
The deck has taken many many iterations in exploring how to leverage Jegantha in the companion zone, and the latest version so far is the most adaptable and fun to pilot. You can go fast if you’re the fastest at the table, you can go slow and tempo out the table if you’re against storm, you can even grind really well in midrange pods. It plays much closer to what you classically expect from a Sisay, Weatherlight Captain deck except with the benefit of knowing you always have your out as long as you have mana.
I made some updates in the decklist for Modern Horizons 2 that I haven’t talked about in the video since I haven’t had time to test them due to playing in MLC. Once I’ve tested the cards more I’ll release another update on how they’re performing, but some easy updates includes Ignoble Hierarch and Ragavan.
I hope you all enjoy the video and deck, and it inspires you all to brew something interesting 🙂
That already is awesome, but also that I will get two of his swamps is! Much better than just yet another Planeswalker I will never play, like that angrath.

Aside from the revised Duals and Gaea’s Crade (which are usually known to players even in casual pods), it usually is my Mox Diamond. It’s just the closest we got to actual moxen in EDH and when it hits the table, it usually evokes some reactions. People just don’t see them that often, I guess. Lion’s Eye Diamond is another good one, but that I only play in cedh decks, as it is just a combo piece. Mox Diamond can go in any deck that wants the speedup.
Obelisk every day, every deck. I have two of them and they are just gorgeous.
/u/bboomslang on I loved the Playing With Power budget idea! What are your best and cheapest "cEDH" decks?
I am cheating a little in that the core cards of my Ukkima Foodchain Aluren deck are quite expensive, so instead the commander, I disregard the price of the core engines, but after that, the rest of the deck is sub 100€. Budget restrictions can be lots…
As already mentioned, this card really shines if you play Underworld Breach in your list (or Yawgmoth‘s Will to an extent), because you care less about the discards then. But still then, there are multiple better wheel effects in Grixis that are good o…
