This seems like a very interesting format. So the Entire deck and sideboard can't exceed 10 bucks? How do you handle cards that have a printing that is say .80c but a different printing that's .50c?

I would shift from Aura and go more heavy on Equipment so you could run Kemba, Kha Regent. More equipment also means you could run Vulshok Battlemaster. Equipment is also a safer bet because 1 Smother or the l i k e s, etc loses you all your aura's. Where as equipment has to be dealt with individualy with a few exceptions

Wow, very nice extensive explanations of all the cards in the deck, well done. It's however very hard to read because of the mass of text.

I suggest breaking up the sections with some pictures, wrapping the sections in spoiler tags or an accordion. Making each card name a mouseover producing a popup image of the card is helpful to compare the explanation of the card to the actual card. To do this you can wrap each card name in square brackets.

This makes the text of a card name blue making it stand out more when reading.

Docent of Perfection  Flip and Young Pyromancer seem out of place. I get that the strategy is casting charms and they create tokens, but I don't think you need them. Consider cutting them for some early game ramp that can help to make five colors: Fellwar Stone and Birds of Paradise?

Good luck with your deck.

I think the function of Abzan Charm is fulfilled by Shoulder to Shoulder

Great deck! I'm also a big fan of abzan. Have you considered Abzan Charm. I would also recommend Curse of Predation just for the extra counters when you attack as well as some explore cards such as Deadeye Tracker.Cultivator of Blades is also just a great card in counter decks

I love Abzan! Here are some suggestions:

1:Improve your creatures

Cut Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Den Protector, and a copy of Courser of Kruphix.

Add 4 Tarmogoyf and more Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

Sylvan Caryatid would be helpful, too.

2:Improve your mana-base

Cut Temple of Malady and Temple of Silence. They're just bad.

Cut Sandsteppe Citadel.

Cut Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes.

Add Overgrown Tomb, Godless Shrine, Temple Garden, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, and Verdant Catacombs. A playset of each.

3:Improve your spells

Cut Languish and Tragic Arrogance and replace them with Damnation or Wrath of God.

Cut Despise, Abzan Charm, Bile Blight, Silence the Believers and Ultimate Price.

Replace them with Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, and Dismember or Maelstrom Pulse. Any of these two removal spells should be a playset(4), but all of them are just about the same.

3:Sideboard for Modern

Cut literally everything.

Add 4 Nature's Claim and Creeping Corrosion.

Stony Silence could be useful too.

If you choose to run Go for the Throat, sideboard a third removal option that can hit anything.

Add Relic of Progenitus or Bojuka Bog.

Leyline of Sanctity can hose just about any deck.


I couldn't really fit this stuff in without you cutting some other useful stuff, but cards like Kitchen Finks, Dark Confidant, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or Blind Obedience could worm their way into your deck.

Loxodon Smiter (sideboard) and Liliana of the Veil would be good inclusions. Since you are gaining a lot of life between Siege Rhino and Thragtusk maybe consider running Thoughtseize over Duress? Also Abzan Charm can be useful sometimes. If youre worried about board wipe since youre currently lacking any, run Wrath of God or Damnation. Consider running another Tasigur, the Golden Fang to feed your Scavenging Ooze.

Perhaps Abzan Charm over Ponder? It's a near another swords when you need it, card draw in a pinch, or a turn on Ramos ritual.
