fmastrome2008 I am not really looking to finish with creature beats so I left out Avenger. Same with Crater-hoof and other effects like that. I may put them in if I find this deck can't close out games. Lotus Cobra is amazing in a landfall deck but his triggers are hard to keep up with in an online environment. I may add him just to have some more low drops. Why don't you like Gyruda? Getting a 6/6 and digging 8 deep in each persons library for two creatures seems good to me.

I think that this could definitely work without the Jace. While it doesn't serve exactly the same purpose another Brazen Borrower would work well, as I consider this one of the most powerful creatures in Modern right now. Additionally another Thoughtseize might work well too. Thanks for the compliment. This is one of my favorite decks I've built. I mostly play at kitchen tables, so this deck might be overkill. I do think that it would perform nicely at FNM as well though.

Hi I just wanted to talk about your deck for a moment!

I actually remember you from CommandFest DC! I got destroyed during the cedh tournament, but I remember everyone talking about the "88 Lands Guy" and how surprised they were with your deck.

I was the only player there who ran Godo. I wasn't too familiar with the meta, so Godo wasn't really the best choice to bring, but I love mono red decks.

I never got to meet you but your deck was one of the only cedh decks I remember just based off of the theme alone. (Apparently there was a really cool Mogis deck in the tournament too but I don't remember the theme).

But I'm super glad I was able to find your deck here.

It's such a really cool idea and I love the commitment!

Thanks!

The deck you are describing is more like a Gruul Aggro deck, not focused on Prowess like my deck. I like it more this way. Shrapnel Blast is okay with Mox Amber, but in my deck it's useless. Playing colorless lands is absolutely impossible in my deck, as most of my spells cost just a single red mana and can't be cast with colorless mana.

Ojira, Jeskai Emmisary

Legendary creature - Human Monk

Prowess

When ~ enters the battlefield create a token that is a copy to target creature with converted mana cost less than the amount of spent to cast ~. Exile a card from the top of your library for each spend to cast ~. Until your next turn you may play those cards. You gain 2 life for each spent to cast ~.

2/2


2 options for challenge:

-Make a card that is from Hearthstone. (copy an existing Hearthstone card, give it a colored mana cost that fits it if a color will fit its flavor, use magic terminology to explain how the card works, don't use keywords that don't exist in magic)

-continue the previous challenge

Hey fmastrome2008

I followed some of your advices but didn't find a Sire of Stagnation yet. For the ramp, I choose a mix between lands, spells and rocks. I hope it will be fine

What do you think about the other changes ?

Revisiting Kamigawa, even if it's merely in a core set, would be sick, especially since I didn't start playing until long after our first visit to the plane.

seshiro_of_the_orochi the fact that a new Seshiro would fit the criteria outlined so specifically makes me think that you could very well be right in making that prediction. Clever thinking bro.

Flooremoji that is an interesting prospect, yet I firmly believe that there's almost no way we only see two basic land types in M21. I think it's far more likely that we see a pair of cards that simply both happen to fit this criteria independently, in what will almost definitely be mere coincidence. Don't know if that was meant as a complete joke, though. Also, couldn't Hexdrinker almost be considered a french vanilla mythic? Idk, I'm not expecting much more than an aggressively costed can of keyword soup.

Daarkest on Jeskai mid-range with Dreadhorde

Void Snare is a pretty awful card in almost every format, save limited. I recommend Brazen Borrower instead.

Stumpy123 on Turbosteel, Best deck ever. No ...

1 hour ago

cheffireball thanks for the suggestions! Yawgmoth's Bargain is a great card, but it costs 6 mana... and we have better things to cast for cheaper cost. Dark Ritual is sweet, but we only have 2 black cards to cast, so the mana may go to waste, since we have so many mana accelerants already. I may try Bargain however...

Diskord on Death's Playground

I think Torpor Orb would be a fine addition, as you can't remove a creature before it enters, so a deck that utilizes cards like Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath or Agent of Treachery would be turned off

Ok, maybe this is just me loving snakes, but hear me out: It seems very specific to talk about a +1/+1 lord for a tribe with more than 50 creatures that doesn't yet have such a lord: There are 89 snakes, and the three lords give +1/+0, +0/+1 and +2/+2. Combine this with a legend that has a vanguard card and a legendary creature card, and we can hope for new Seshiro the Anointed. This fits with the human monk. Maybe we'll get a Kamigawa subtheme. Now wouldn't this be nice?

I'm just sayin', these are pretty powerful...

Dreaded One

Legendary Creature - Horror

When ~ enters the battlefield, for each spent to cast it, it deals 2 damage to target creature. For each spent to cast ~, you draw 1 card.

When ~ enters the battlefield, if was spent to cast it, put your choice of a lifelink or deathtouch counter on it.

3/2

Continue the challenge.

When you cast ~, for each spent to cast ~, search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. For each spent to cast ~, return target creature to its owner's hand with power less than the amount of mana spent to cast ~.

~ enters the battlefield with a Vigilance counter on it if was spent to cast it.

Funnily enough, the Basic Lands meet the requirements for"

"Two cards played in tournaments that have been reprinted over twenty times with at least five different pieces of art"

However, it seems unlikely that there would be only two basic lands in this set.

DespairFaction

Hello there! I would really like to add you on discord for this. I have never had people give a lot of Aurelia feedback apart from my friends being terrified of it, so I've never had direct discussions with players who really want to go in-depth with it, and build the best possible Aurelia deck out there. So I only got to use her at my LGS and force myself to balance it into a meta where high cEDH decks also confront mid-high tier that can destroy me if I only slot anti-cEDH and don't plan for midrange.

So basically, you're like this oasis of opportunity. I think there's a middle ground for excellence where I'm not just focused on early stax, rely on 1-2 other players to bridge myself into the disgusting midgame beats and/or helm of the host if the stax becomes overwhelming. Having more PoVs is an excellent opportunity and I think it can make Aurelia go really far. I'm going to see if I can add you on discord and we can really go in depth with this to research builds we are both pleased with and that push Aurelia further.

Cmi1103 on Rhys Token Generator

Hey there!

Looks like you've a great start! I love Rhys! A few cards I would recommend are: Odric, Master Tactician who essentially makes your creatures unblockable. Marwyn, the Nurturer thrives in this deck as a solid mana dork, she could replace Llanowar elves since you're more than likely to cast Rhys on turn 1. Beastmaster Ascension works wonders, and Presence of Gond makes infinite tokens with Midnight Guard. Here's what I've done with Rhys if you're interested: 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens)

Have fun!

Driemer84 on OH LORD JESUS IT'S CORONAVIRUS ...

Yarok It’s really tough to beat blasphemous act. Blasphemous act is there to clean up unfavorable board states. Bonfire can only clean up one opponent’s board state, and realistically only when it’s cast as a miracle, which is very unlikely with no top deck manipulation. Even if you do miracle the bonfire, you’re still going to be down a red mana in your second main phase because it only hits one opponent and not all opponents.

Looks great Patolea! Since your group likes to wrath, Settle the Wreckage could be a good include for a long-term strategy. Attack with a bunch of tokens, then turn them into lands with Settle the Wreckage. The cool thing about this is the tokens will still trigger Winota when they attack.

Also Requiem Angel is a decent anti-boardwipe card.

Brefin on Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Vadrok ...

2 hours ago

For those keeping track. Oh wow does Jeskai Ascendancy change the tier of these decks. You will want to have the right playgroup before you go off with an Ascendency powered turn. At least on M:TGO a group needs to be all in to accept a turn where you take 10 minutes of getting 3 spells for one cast, and managing 12 triggers as a result. And you're just iterating off these spells to keep casting more spells. Effective, but a real time burner of a kill turn. At which point I decided that for my playgroup... no Ascendency... but also I built a version that doubled down on being competitive. Like Vadrok naturally likes Cephalid Illusionist. For compactness, that line of play is Illusionist, Thassa's Oracle and Shaman en-Kor. And then the Blinkmoth lands and a couple other manlands as they work with Fatestitcher and Emry, Lurker of the Loch

I edited the maybe board putting the dork strategy named as Glass Canion, it has 6 dorks, so you can substitute 6 rocks and still run sol ring and mana crypt, this is HYPER aggro my friend, pretty much everything before Winota will be a non-human creature, just smash everyone else faces. I can give you a reason why I didn't run all dorks, my playgroup loves a wrath effect, so I will lose my creatures before finish the game and I need the mana to deploy the overcosted Winotas all day long.

Also put the Death Star section, this cards will explode players off, I put the Breath of Fury in the main, I realize we don't need to rebuild a game if it's over lol!

Adriana, Captain of the Guard take her place of right into the mainboard, she together with Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer can do really serious stuffs.

This looks like a fantastic deck build. I wanted to assemble this for personal use, but I had a quick question- I don’t have a copy of Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and it’s quite a bit outside my budget for now. How instrumental is he to the deck performance? Can anything more budget friendly be substituted for him?
