Saheeli’s Blue Moon

https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/saheelis-blue-moon/?cb=1534343231

Stax in the form of Saheeli the gifted from Commander 2018. Saheeli let’s you play around the most brutal hate pieces, like:

  • Static orb
  • Winter Orb
  • Back to Basics
  • Stasis

Her 2nd +1 ability reduces the cost of your next spell by the number of artifacts you control, which in a stax environment seems pretty broken. Most of your mana will be produced by artifacts. With the inclusion of Paradox engine & Winding clock, skipping your untap step or untapping two permanents a turn becomes irrelevant pretty quickly.

Win conditions consist of your opponents conceding, various isochron sceptor combos, or walking ballista.

I built this deck because stax does very well in my meta, but a game will quickly turn into arch enemy when you make people feel miserable. Any feedback is welcomed.

Mizzix Storm Primer

Deck Lists

Budgetless Mizzix Storm: Mizzix’s Intuition by Nakhla

$1500 Mizzix Storm: $1500 Mizzix’s Intuition by SlagBombFTW

$600 Mizzix Storm: $600 Mizzix’s Intuition by SlagbombFTW

$250 Mizzix Storm: $250 Mizzix’s Foresight by SlagbombFTW

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Disclaimer

Please note that the strategies discussed involved the Budgetless list. The primers for the budget versions are already in the respective pages, just click the link and check the description.

This primer may not be as updated to the current meta as it is but I would be sure to update this from time to time.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Introduction

Mizzix Storm is a deck that chains spells and abuse the cast trigger of Mizzix of the Izmagnus. Tutoring or getting to the win conditions thru draws and digs are the ways of Izzet to compensate for the tutors offered by decks that have black in it. The deck also has a lot of ways to win without Mizzix in play. This deck runs closest to JVP High Tide with pros and cons to be considered.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Cards to Consider

Key Cards:

  • Aetherflux Reservoir
  • Dramatic Reversal
  • Enter the Infinite
  • Isochron Scepter
  • Mizzix’s Mastery
  • Paradox Engine
  • Past in Flames

Tutors:

For instant spells:

  • Merchant Scroll
  • Mystical Tutor

For sorcery spells:

  • Personal Tutor
  • Mystical Tutor

For artifact spells:

  • Fabricate
  • Transmute Artifact
  • Whir of Invention

For any cards:

  • Gamble
  • Intuition

Draws and Digs:

Draws:

  • Brainstorm
  • Frantic Search
  • Gitaxian Probe
  • Ponder
  • Preordain
  • Pull from Tomorrow
  • Serum Visions
  • Stroke of Genius

Digs:

  • Dig Through Time
  • Fact or Fiction
  • Impulse
  • Sleight of Hand

Resets:

Twisters:

  • Diminishing Returns
  • Time Spiral
  • Timetwister

Wheels:

  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Windfall

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Combos and Synergies

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Main Win Lines:

  • Dramatic Scepter Lines (refer to Combos and Synergies)
  • Intuition Lines

NOTE: Mizzix should have two (2) experience counters for the line to be most efficient. Also, the line most likely you’ll run is the Intuition line where you were given the Enter the Infinite. It is the wisest choice and it would make you consume the most mana. Your opponent would only give you the other two if they have graveyard interactions like Faerie Macabre or Silent Gravestone.

Mana to be spent (in the full line) with Mizzix in play:

(0) experience counter: 5UURR or 5URRR

(1) experience counter: 3UURR or 3URRR

(2) experience counters: 1UURR or 1URRR

Mana to be spent (in the full line) without Mizzix in play: 11UURR or 11URRR

Tutor for Enter the Infinite + Mizzix’s Mastery + Past in Flames

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

If opponent gives you:

Enter the Infinite

  1. Cast Past in Flames using Flashback.
  2. Recast Intuition tutoring for Frantic Search + Wheel of Fortune + Windfall
  3. Cast anything your opponent gives to you to discard Enter the Infinite.
  4. Cast Mizzix’s Mastery targetting Enter the Infinite.

Past in Flames

  1. Cast Past in Flames.
  2. Cast Mizzix’s Mastery targetting Enter the Infinite.

Mizzix’s Mastery

  1. Cast Mizzix’s Mastery targetting Enter the Infinite.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

When Enter the Infinite resolves, it is almost impossible for you to lose. These are the modes to choose from to win when it resolves.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Alternate Lines:

Make sure to hold counter spells to protect combos. If something went awry, reset.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Remarks

If there are suggestions about the list, kindly send me a PM so we can discuss about it. Thanks!

Ben Friedman on UB Shadow

Article here

I hadn’t seen this linked to the subreddit yet (entirely possible I missed it though, if so my bad), so I figured I’d share Ben Friedman’s takes on UB Shadow going forward.

More specficically, I’d like to ask people what they though of his take on “dualless” Shadow being entirely reasonable as a way to be better vs the Moon/Wasteland decks of the format, along with Wasteland not being key to the strategy. To me at least, these are super important because they leave the deck being far, far cheaper to build than any other fair blue deck.

/u/bboomslang on I came to Commander looking for something different. Instead, I found more of the same.

It most definitely is. Don’t expect durdling and anything else than “there is my opponent, kill him fast and hard” in 1v1. There is no real social aspect to 1v1 and so anything but streamlined decks will just plain fail. This makes decks converge towards typical set of staples in their colors. There will be variations, but when I play just one opponent, why should I opt for a weird wincon that might work, if I have a solid wincon that definitely will work?

Best commander for playing alone?

Just that. Which do you think is the best commander for playing alone, against the wall? I have some ideas but I really would love to read your thoughts on this topic. Now I’m going to keep writing nonsense because one of those stupid rules about a required number of words or something like that. I didn’t even read the whole explanation about why this post was removed. Are you happy now, stupid bot?

/u/bboomslang on PSA: It might not be worth it to build around odd CMC cards for Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign but don’t worry, she’s still great.

You are playing in the colors of top-deck-tutors. You only need some odd-cmc Wincons to cheat in, not to build the whole deck around it.

/u/bboomslang on Izzet us you are looking for?

Superfriends in Izzet Colors combine wonderfully with artifacts – especially the two Saheelis and [[Dack Fayden]]. I would go for [[Chain Veil]] and proliferate with [[Throne of Geth]] and [[Contagion Engine]] and maybe [[Contagion Clasp]] to get faste…

Well, Reweave did that already at instant speed. But now it works inbred, which could make Daretti happy.

/u/bboomslang on [C18] all 4 face commanders got leaked

Saheeli sounds interesting for a heavy-artifact deck, as right the turn she comes out you can drop some fatty to protect her for cheap. Or to beat face. So in 1v1 she could really be a nice way to get Blightsteel out very quickly, especially if you run a competetive rock suite. And it doesn’t work only for artifacts, so you could even use her to get Omniscience out earlier. So her as the commander and new Jhoira as one of the 99 could be fun. Cost reduction in the command zone has shown to be interesting before.

/u/bboomslang on [C18] Geode Golem

It could even make high-cost commanders like P ogenitus viable. Just build your deck to get this out fast to get a point of damage in and drop Progenitors on the board without bothering for 5 colors first.

[C18] Geode Golem

Spoiled here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsIeYTvx9U4

Image link.

Geode Golem – 5

Artifact Creature – Golem

Trample

Whenever Geode Golem deals combat damage to a player, you may cast your commander from the command zone without paying its mana cost. (You still pay any additional costs.)

5/3

Sweet new tech for getting those expensive commanders out once they’ve died multiple times! Or just casting your huge commander early; going to be gross in Eldrazi Titan decks.

/u/bboomslang on If you could add any color to any commander, which color and commander would you choose?

Blue to Daretti, so his one weakness (bad card selection) would get much better. Sorry, Jhoira, but a UR Daretti would be a much better Artifact commander.
