Those are some quite interesting ideas there... I like the Serra Ascendant play. One nice thing I forgot to mention was a fetching chain of Ranger of Eos into Behemoth's Herald + Goblin Bushwhacker into Godsire.

He's a 1-3x in the grixis control/blue jund shells in modern, so that helped bump the price. I got mine while he was $30ish _ I'm glad I didn't hop on the Lilly band wagon lol

Thanks for your suggestions, I did some more digging through some cards on the gatherer and I found Mindwrack Liege. I did take the creatures that you suggested into count, and when I originally was making this deck, I was planing on putting in Riverfall Mimic but Shapeshifter wasn't on the list of creature types, and although the guy that is running this tournament might have allowed it, I decided not to bother with it. I did however add Izzet Charm as you suggested because, it's a pretty good card. So yea Thank you DuBie15 for your help and I hope you have a wonderful day. c:

I apologize in advance if this was covered but I didn't see it yet. It was posted on another thread but I didn't see any responses there either: There is no "trade" tab under BFZ cards to see who has/is looking for a specific card.
(Sorry, I can never get links to work on this site)

Going into red or black is probably your best bet against swarm decks Languish and Radiant Flames are really good in that sense. Black also has access to obviously Siege Rhino (which destroys swarm decks) but also some great spot removal like Murderous Cut, Ruinous Path, Utter End, Complete Disregard, Reave Soul, Foul-Tongue Invocation, and Ultimate Price. Besides removal i dont know what else black has to offer a counters deck like this.

Sorry for the double post. but I read what you said about Stave Off. Infect is your only threat, with all your lifegain pump spells are otherwise negligible, and even infect has a poor matchup against you. You're getting out a t1 creature every game and should be happy to trade. Splinter twin is inherently countered by your entire deck. make infinite copies? sure.. you gain infinite life.

Ok, so here is the remix I settled on. The main plan is the same, there is a backup plan of [ensnaring bridge]/wormcoil/chancellor beatdown which can be fetched via fabricate. Sideboard should help transform to fog-city. not completely happy with that, but beast within/ druids deliverence looks promising. Considering howling mine.http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/modern-belcher-copy-3/

MrBWhacko I appreciate the suggestions. I think that Chameleon Colossus is good at being a bigass beatstick, easily reaching 32/32 on his own with just 12 mana, which can be achieved as early as turn 5 in this deck. Spearbreaker Behemoth has been showing up in a few decks I've seen for reference, but I don't care as much to protect my general or the tokens enough that I want to invest into a 7 drop creature and leave mana open. In general, I will tap out every turn. They are some great cards though.

well then maybe in place of Simian Spirit Guide or Collected Company. You need to have some form of interaction with other decks in the format. I don't think either of those are crucial to the combo. ...but surviving while a 4 piece combo is setup is another story..

I run a similar deck, I'd drop Norin to 3. He will almost never be removed, so once he's out, the rest are dead draws. Stave Off should be Brave the Elements - Norin protects himself and everything else is white.
I also tried running Impact Tremors but found it too slow. If you are playing this in multiplayer, it's often much more usful to have a 15/15 Ajani's Pridemate on the board then pecking for 1 or 2 dmg per turn. Alternatively, keep it and run Proclamation of Rebirth - it has more games than I care to count.

I just moved into my new house, so things are still settling down. I should become -much- more available to play in a week or so. I'll be much more flexible in play time.
Of course, we've already played, so I'm more letting everyone else know too.

Hey! Thanks for the advice with my Charge Up and Charge In (R/G Aggro, Budget) deck, I've made some adjustments now, so let me know what you think! I also need help on the land. What two colour lands should i put in if any and how many of each land would you recommend? Should i even go full on RDW and if so, how would i do that? Much appreciated :)

Doc28: Do you have a list? I'm curious to see what a tested combo/control list would look like.
I think a control deck with Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper/Jeskai Ascendancy as a win condition alongside Dragonlord Ojutai is where I'm headed. Ascendancy works very well with Ojutai (untapping to give Hexproof in response to removal) so the slot isn't wasted at all. I want the combo available but I don't want to rely on it to win.

There are also a number of other cards which can be cast without mana... most don't actually 'shut-down' Contamination though... Here
Plus, as many others have pointed out, colorless is a very easy way to deal with this, and it can be used with any Commander.

Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'm going to leave out Harrow because a lot of the people I play with run U/B decks with tons of counters. Sylvan Library, Descendants' Path, and Sensei's Divining Top seem like a great cards to add I just have to find somewhere to put it. I think Strip Mine is more of a sideboard card than anything else, but it definitely can be helpful in certain situations. I don't really like Scroll Rack because it is sort of a worse version of both Sylvan Library and Sensei's Divining Top.
