WillySmasher on Gisa's Ghouls

Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for tons of mana. Liliana Vess mainly for tutor ability and Liliana of the Dark Realms for lands drops and ramp. +1 I love tribal/themed decks.

Edit: for zombie synergy Liliana, the Last Hope

Trtl I ran Drift of Phantasms for a good while in my first draft. Personally, I prefer running more proactive cards rather than 3 mana tutors that only really get one specific card. If I wanted to tune this 100% and make it a super-fast Doomsday deck, I might run one or more of them, but as it stands right now I'd rather run other cards.

Additionally, every LGS should have starter decks on hand - mono colored 40 card decks, available for play for free and designed to teach the game.

In terms of sealed product useful for teaching the game, I would recommend the new planeswalker decks.

Selesnya Evangel is slower but easier to go infinite with if you have less mana. Presence of Gond could also potentially be decent.

Hello xXImpetuSXx,

Yeah I'm sorry, I really love From The Vault's Angels. :( You're right, they are not really fitting.

Do you think my Grixis deck is better ? I played this deck exclusively for a full year now and wanted some change; that's why I went this Miracle deck.

I'd like this deck to be modern legal yes. See Beyond is Poor man's Brainstorm I guess :(

Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Sensei's Divining Top look absolutely BEAST for a Miracle deck, but I want to stick to modern format as much as possible 'cause my buddies exclusively play in Modern.

Thanks again for your attention !! Your help is much appreciate

Chernik on Ghave Guru Of Tokens

Instead of cards Doom Vlade I recommend using Abzan Charm, because your opponent will not always control nonblack creature (for example multicolor deck). Or instead, it is better to put a card with the exile of the creature or permanent.

Woah, why no Lord of the Unreal? Incredibly mana-efficient and makes your dudes even harder to kill. Would be one of the best lords ever printed if he wasn't a different type than his supported tribe(and if he was a Merfolk lord instead of buffing a rarely supported tribe), but that's not really a problem here as all your lords are just buffing changelings.

HokutoMagic on Jund-Aggro-Energy

DanielMT57 yeah pretty nothing new, only wants to know if there are some other synergy cards that can fit or sideboard tips.. i wanted an aggro/midrange deck for try to win some local tournaments and this jund version is fast and effective i think... i've tried to win with an abzan planeswalkers brew the other times at my local shop but then you face some shaeeli combo decks or tower-control decks and you need to have some answers or bring down lifepoints as fast as possible..
anyway i'm a brewer too, i'll post some other ideas in the next weeks :D

Chandrian on Gifts Storm

I got Gifts Ungiven from a MM17 pack, never noticed that card before (especially since banned in EDH) and was looking at some decks that run it... and then I found your deck.

I love Izzet, I love storm... and this decks looks very very nice.

Could you inform me about what are good / bad match-ups for you? ANd how do you usually pilot the deck?

Anyway +1 from me

Whiskerbro on Mill and Controll (Budget<35€)

4 hours ago

Grisly Spectacle is really very bad and Destroy the Evidence is even worse. I'd suggest running dedicated removal and mill separately instead. Glimpse the Unthinkable is fantastic, but if you're on a budget it is probably out of the question. For mill spells, consider Breaking / Entering and Mind Funeral. For removal, Doom Blade and Ultimate Price are pretty good, or something more expensive like Fatal Push if you can afford it. Manic Scribe would be a much more fitting creature for the deck, who combos pretty well with Phenax. If you can afford 'em, get your hands on as many Shelldock Isles as you can. That card is fantastic in a mill deck, especially one like yours with higher cost spells.

Overall Suggested Changes:

-4x Fog Bank

-2x Dream Leash

-3x Grisly Spectacle

-3x Pilfered Plans

-2x Psychic Strike

-1x Dimir Doppelganger

 

+3x Manic Scribe

+4x Mind Funeral

+3x Doom Blade

+3x Night's Whisper

Boza on Atog Food

A bit of both. I have a couple of options in my affinity decks. I run Grixis for Bleak Coven Vampires, or white for Auriok Sunchaser and Ardent Recruit. If you want to break away from the mold, Kaladesh has some great options - Reckless Fireweaver, Salivating Gremlins and Cogworker's Puzzleknot for triggering all of those. They work great with Atog too.

Right, but that was refering to a sanctioned event (as indicated by "former"), where a wish cannot grab cards that aren't legal in the format. I used as a reference, which also indicated only needed a unique identifier rather than the actual card name.

BlueScope on Can Equinox counter board wipes ...

Indirectly destroying a land would be, for example, to cast a Lightning Bolt onto one of your animated 3/3 lands, causing it to have damage equal to or higher than it's toughness marked on it and therefore being destroyed by state-based actions - however, not by the Bolt itself.
Direct destruction are effects that use the term "destroy", such as Wrath of God does. Equinox only cares about these types of effects.

As for your main question, there's a certain Gatherer ruling that's very helpful here:

When the activated ability resolves, determine whether the targeted spell would destroy a land if it resolved right then. If it would, then counter that spell. Otherwise, it is not countered, even if the spell could, under other circumstances, destroy a land.

If you have a Land that's also a creature when the ability resolves, Wrath of God would destroy a creature, therefore is countered by the ability of Equinox. If your opponent, in response to you activating the ability, decides to kill your only land creature with a Bolt, Wrath of God will not be countered, as you now only control nonland creatures.

9/20/2013 When the activated ability resolves, determine whether the targeted spell would destroy a land if it resolved right then. If it would, then counter that spell. Otherwise, it is not countered, even if the spell could, under other circumstances, destroy a land.

So as long as Wrath of God would destroy one of your lands right then and there (as you're commander choice suggests it would), Equinox will counter Wrath of God. Indirect destruction seems to be referring to if the spell's resolution would trigger an event that would result in the destruction of your land (such as casting Acidic Slime), or if instead of Wrath of God it were Chain Reaction, as damage causes the game rules to destroy the land as a state based action rather than the result of the spell.

Swap out -Greenwarden of Murasa for +Season's Past

-Harrow or -Life of the Loam for +Scapeshift

-Wastes for +Boseju, Who Shelters All

-Nissa the Vastwood Seer for +Manabond and you'll have my exact deck

Solid deck regardless. Awesome job.

Where did you get the rule that you can't name a card that is illegal in the format?

I ask this because according to the Gather ruling on the Wish cycle, you can retrieve "any card from your collection" in an unsanctioned event, which possibly includes cards illegal in the format

Neotrup on Can I name every card ...

5 hours ago

For a tournament, to name a card you must be able to uniquely identify it. For a non tournament setting, you can pull out your computer and look at each card name, and systematically name them. In the former scenario, you can also only name cards that can be legally played in the format, so your list is shorter than every card in the game. In the latter scenario, your opponent will likely accept that every activated ability is shut down, unless they want to troll you harder than you're trolling them.

Pheardemons on Can Equinox counter board wipes ...

Scenario: I am playing Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper. Let's say I have five untapped animated lands, one of which Equinox is enchanted on.

On Gatherer I have a question about one of the rulings.

10/4/2004 - Equinox will not counter a spell which would indirectly cause destruction of one of your lands.

Do board wipes such as Wrath of God directly kill the lands (being that they are now animated) or is this something that would be indirect.

Also, if anyone can answer, what is "direct destroy?" Being targeted?

Your saproling is a 1/1 green land creature - saproling mountain. Nothing about Blood Moon makes lands lose types (just land subtypes), nor colors.

What4joke on Grixis Dragons

Your feelings do not deceive you, it is way too slow. its just too many high cost creatures to work smoothly. even with the Servants to lower the cost, you just dont have a way to get it going reliably or fast enough. Narrow down your favorite and most effective dragons (efficiency is important so if you want lots of other dragons, ones that cost 6 or more are tough to work with). Consider cards that speed you up a bit and maybe some card draw spells. Phantasmal Image is a great card that can be a copy of one of your dragons and it only costs 2.
