K4m4r0 on Nobody has the intention of building a Wall

MurrSheep Slagwurm Armor is a good card but it's a bit slow due its "cost of 4 mana". I don't see it in my list, sorry. But thank you for mentioning it!

ClockworkSwordfish Thank you for suggesting a lot of cards! Austere Command and Slaughter the Strong wouldn't work too well in my meta, beacause I play a lot against token decks which usually consits of creatures from 1/1 to 3/3. I am however looking for a spot to add Dusk!

Ensnaring Bridge looks like the best of the four you mentioned. I'll try to get my hands on one and test it for sure.

Abzan Beastmaster and Ulvenwald Observer are very interesting together with the suggestions InfinityMinusOne amde. Could be coupled with blink and a Laboratory Maniac combo. As I said earlier, I'll have some more games today and after that I'll decide in which way to go with the deck. Atleast I will try the other method!

You are somewhat right about Spidersilk Armor and I should get one. Whereas Shield Wall is more like a "wincon" Spidersilk Armor would give a boost the whole time.

Ensouled Scimitar is too expensive for me for 5 mana. Also it can't attack with its toughness like the other creatures because it doesn't have defender. It would sadly stay a 1/5 with flying.

dejrgne on The best offense is a good defense, am I right?

Looking good! If you wanted some more (mostly) one-sided board wipes, you could consider Austere Command, Dusk and Slaughter the Strong. You can even deal with larger creatures on a somewhat permanent basis via Meekstone, Noetic Scales or Marble Titan. Ensnaring Bridge is probably the best at what it does, but it's hella expensive.

You could also get some more card draw from Abzan Beastmaster and/or Ulvenwald Observer, in case Arcades wasn't always enough. Reveillark would also be interesting since it can bring back basically any two creatures in the deck!

And by the way, are you sure Shield Wall is good enough? You might get more use, certainly in the long run, with Spidersilk Armor or even Ensouled Scimitar, which can increase a creature's damage capability by 5 or functionally be a 5/5 flyer itself!

@dhoby87 thanks for the suggestion. I don't think the deck really needs the extra draw. Abzan Beastmaster seems a little too fragile and won't be on 100% of the time.

Missing Abzan Beastmaster for free card draw? =D

You may be an aggro wall deck (That's a sentence I never thought I'd say) but sometimes you have to get rid of the Peacekeeper or Hushwing Gryff. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Beast Within are all generic good cards.

You could also afford to draw more cards. Your commander does draw you some and you have some cards to assist that but you wanna play your two and three drop walls before that. Abzan Beastmaster is wonderfully in flavor and a personal howling mine. Sultai Flayer is an option but IDK if it's worth it. But also just generic good card draw like Soul of the Harvest, Mind's Eye, (If you have one), Shamanic Revelation, even stuff like Concentrate and Harmonize. Your deck may be running on a funky axis but that doesn't mean you should forget the essentials. In fact, they can help tie your gameplay together.

Angelic Chorus Lol. Don't know if it's good but come on. Verdant Sun's Avatar, Proper Burial too. They probably aren't worth it but it sounds funny. Dragon Throne of Tarkir is also pretty funny and works well with Arcades. Marble Titan is a meekstone with legs. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive makes your team unblockable. And Heroic Intervention is pretty good.

You could probably cut some of the less impressive walls like Order of the Stars or Thraben Gargoyle  Flip.

Down on the left hand side of your deck's page there's a button that says "Download / Export / Embed Code."

If you click that, it'll give you the copy + paste link so you can do this:


The Tireless Assault (v 1.1.1)

Legacy Daarkest

SCORE: 2 | 4 COMMENTS | 103 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER


As far as what to use in order to replace Tireless Tribe for Modern, there isn't one. Wizards learned their lesson with Psychatog and put really restrictive costs on creatures that let you discard things at no cost and without restriction.

It looks like, however, you have a good Doran, the Siege Tower deck already. I'd suggest cutting Tireless Tribe, Eladamri's Call (not Modern legal), and Abzan Beastmaster + Kin-Tree Invocation (there are better choices).

Replace them with 1 more Birds of Paradise (so that you'll have 4) and either Noble Hierarchs or Avacyn's Pilgrim (depending on budget). Finish off your replacements with Spellskite, Wall of Omens, Collected Company, and Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.

SecretEgret on (Owned) Ruric Thar Deck

Hard remove: Jaddi Offshoot, Abzan Beastmaster, Crown of Doom these cards seem extra weak either in this list in particular or overall

Jaddi? Not land focused

Beastmaster? Not fatty focused

Crown? Not wide enough

Soft remove: Nullstone Gargoyle, Dwarven Miner, Viashino Heretic

These cards are all slow, expensive, and make you a target. They are also redundant to Ruric Thar to some extent, which isn't bad, but it isn't copacetic to the plan.

Try: Ondu Giant, Borborygmos Enraged, Farhaven Elf, Viridian Emissary

What do these have in common? They're affordable, they're creatures and they ramp you to your fatties.

Then, to give your mooks some kick try cards like: Goblin Bushwhacker, Instigator Gang  Flip, Reckless Bushwhacker,
