    Whoa. Whoa. WHOA.

    I just got off work.

    Temur Ascendancy combo? Explain.

    Temur Sabertooth bouncing a Karametra's Acolyte around a bunch of devotion with Ascendancy hasting everything, ( get Sabertooth or any other 4 power + in on it to add infinite card draw)

    You and me both.

    It sounds crazy hot and something I'll absolutely dump money into.

    Then I'll have three combo decks! Jeskai Ascendancy (normal), Jeskai Ascendacy (Heroic) and Temur!

  • DaebunzDaebunz Registered User regular

    If WOTC is going to insist on printing cards in a way to encourage midrange strategies Combo decks may be required to counteract them.

    Pfft ascendancy combos
    I'll be over here living the dream with my manifest + bearer of the heavens + gift of immortality + sac outlet combo

  • KnobKnob TURN THE BEAT BACK InternetModerator mod
    Whoa dang. jeskai tokens is deceptively hard to pilot. I am going to have to grind the fuck out of this thing. Here I'm thinking 'turn dudes sideways, play burn, lol'

    Nooooope

    APODionysus
  • I needed anime to post.I needed anime to post. boom Registered User regular
    yessssss

    i honestly feel like jeskai tokens has the most decisions to make at any one point out of all the tier 1 decks in the meta right now

  • APODionysusAPODionysus Registered User regular
    Yeah, it's not a simple deck by any means. Particularly when you have resolved - or are about to resolve - and Ascendancy.

    Even on Ascendancy Heroic, which is probably simpler - and on the beat down plan since comboing off isn't in the clear future - the decision points are incredibly complex. Spell sequencing becomes incredibly important as even a hand full of gas can go awry from casting spells in the wrong order. Then you add looting decisions. I've essentially lost games because I didn't hold enough lands to loot away... and lost others because I held too many.

    It's so rewarding though when you get to deal obscene damage.

  • KnobKnob TURN THE BEAT BACK InternetModerator mod
    So far turn 3 is like the worst thing in the universe

    Untap, draw, stare at rabblemaster, ascendancy, outburst, and stoke

    Look at their board. Look at their mana. Look at my board. Look at my hand.

    Throw hands in the air and yell, 'WHAT THE FUCK'

    Its tough as hell.

    A few rules of thumb for that situation.

    1) Most of the time you don't wanna play ascendancy unless you can get intimidate value out of it. Think of it as a five drop.
    2) You rarely want to play ascendancy on an empty board.
    3) Outburst gets the nod if you think your opponent has removal for the Rabblemaster or you played a two drop and want access to stoke.
    4) In most other situations Rabble is the correct play.

    death to aggro

    all midrange all the time

    let's play magic instead of high card cut

  • I needed anime to post.I needed anime to post. boom Registered User regular
    oh yeah you sure are playing magic when you siege rhino, turn sideways, siege rhino

  • DaebunzDaebunz Registered User regular
    i like mardu midrange because i am in earnest trying to end the game as quickly as possible with red fatties

    i see no wrong in either aggro or midrange for you are often turning mans sideways either way

    honestly they're both awful in that they have draws where the opponent feels there was nothing at all they could do

    the aggro deck just ends the game instead of making you slow slog through removal

    What if I'm turning mans sideways to generate mana off Springleaf drum? And then turning other mans sideways to bounce said drum? And doing so infinitely? Then turning all the mans sideways to deal infinite damage?

    Is that also not wrong?

    I mean we clearly turn creatures sideways more then midrange players.

    Hey do you guys think I should hold on to my voices and archangels?

    voices should still hold value but unless you wanna play em idk

    4 Wooded Foothills

    4 Sylvan Caryatid

    Like that it doesn't go full on the combo and can win on stuff like a topdeck Nissa.

  • nightmarennynightmarenny Registered User regular
    Did Temur combo play Frontier siege? I'm trying to put together the list in cocatrice as best I can.
