APPLE01DOJ on Mono Green Sideboard: 3/1-2/2 Split?

In the deck above It's only good if you can ramp into it with the same mana dorks you won't be able to play after landing a chalice on 1.

Honestly it's not needed. If burn is really a problem, life gain is best, you could even run Dragon's Claw or Amulet of Safekeeping .

Burn typically expects white leyline game 2 anyway and sides in Destructive Revelry .

tyhaddow Well, it's red deck - It always just burns us or removes the weak creatures from the table to allow their creatures to deal more dmg. With Favorable Winds our creatures are more durable and red player have to use more burn spells to remove them. Also you still have counter spells to defend them so.

But one thing remains - they can still target us. There are two options: We need to gain somehow more hp or just counter that spells. I want to to use Diamond Mare x2 and Amulet of Safekeeping x3 with more counter spells after Sideboard.

Amulet of Safekeeping could be a cheaper Orbs of Warding if you get a lot of tokens

Cutting you deck down to 60 cards would be a huge improvement. You have a lot of underpowered cards, so cutting your deck down to minimum size would make you get to your best cards more consitantly.

Rescue could go. With this few (good) etb triggers, it's not going to be that impactful, and you don't want to bounce your artifacts. (Or it could just become an Unsummon if you got one)

Ceremonious Rejection Seems very specific, but you do surveil a lot, and the card is pretty good, so it may be fine, but I'm not loving it. (Or is it a meta thing?)

Realmwright doesn't seem too useful. I guess it can help you cast Dread Shade, but that's pretty niche.

Amulet of Safekeeping also seems a tad too specific to be good, unless it's a meta thing, (but again, surveil help you get rid of it easily).

Wand of Vertebrae Is probably too RNG to be any good.

With the boosters you've opened, I'm willing to bet you've got some Dimir Guildgates or even Watery Graves, and a couple fixers would be a great addition to the mana base.

Also, I'm sure you've got some Discovery / Dispersal, which is one of the greatest survel cards.

Cool, easy improvements:

73 cards mainboard as is.

Step 1: Sideboard out all of the negates but one (70 cards mainboard, 3 sideboard)

Step 2: Remove all copies of Tezzeret, Cruel Machinist, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Drowned Secrets, Sinister Sabotage, Cancel, Timestream Navigator, Opt, and Omnispell Adept (56 cards mainboard, 3 sideboard)

Step 3: Sideboard out Selective Snare, The Immortal Sun, Amulet of Safekeeping, Essence Scatter, and Spell Pierce, (49 cards mainboard, 9 sideboard)

Step 4: Add in 2 copies of Wizard's Retort, 3 copies of Merfolk Trickster, 3 copy of Warkite Marauder, 3 copies of Curious Obsession, 2 copies of Exclusion Mage. (62 cards mainboard, 9 sideboard)

Step 5: Drop 2 Islands, add in 3 copies of Blink of an Eye, and 3 copies of Dive Down to the sideboard. (60 cards mainboard, 15 sideboard)

That will make this deck a standard powerhouse (well about as much of one as mono-blue tempo is right now!)

TCG prices estimate these will total cost $25.42 and will make it a fully meta deck! Full sideboard included ;)

So ladies and gentlemen I need help. I'm a returning player after like 12 years, and currently only doing drafts (Ravnica so I've got tons of RNG commons). I put below yet to-be a deck for playing standard at my LGS.

Can you please suggest what goes in main and what goes side-board? What do I need?

I may buy some more cards if I can find them at my LGS. Usually I can't, cause most of cards are out of stock. My budget to add more cards are like around $50 but please suggest what goes side-board what goes main...

Thank you very much in advance, I'll buy you a beer if we ever meet =p

let's make me a good deck out of these...


the ones that didn't make to the deck are;

Timestream Navigator

Drowned Secrets x3

Omnispell Adept

Tezzeret, Cruel Machinist

Sigiled Sword of Valeron

Amulet of Safekeeping

The Immortal Sun

Had some painful non-bo experiences today. Thrilling Encore isn't that good with Anafenza exiling their stuff. Probably better off with something like Make a Stand.

Plague of Vermin helped them more than it hurt. Although I gave my guys trample, their Soul Warden and Mycoloth equalized my alpha strike. I could really use a one-sided Ascendant Evincar of some kind. I was thinking of Amulet of Safekeeping, although it nerfs Ogre Slumlord. I might have to go full anti-token with Virulent Plague.

I'm leaning too hard on Merciless Eviction to undo a fortress. I could use a Nev Disk or even Purify. I also need a way to break through with my developed rat army, so I'm considering AEther Shockwave. I also need to reuse a non-rat card, possibly just add Regrowth.

Two things to remark. One, why do you run Amulet of Safekeeping? It's just not as good as any other board clear like for example Fiery Cannonade is, if your goal is to clear token decks; also notice that amulet is an artifact which doesn't make sense in your deck while cannonade is an instant. Two is that Precision Bolt is just not as good as Lightning Strike is since it could potentially turn into one drop with your shaman; I would consider switching these. Your deck is very similar to what I am trying to achieve with one of mine, except I am also adding win condition (cyclops) and card to play around there. Check it out, maybe your will get some ideas out of it. Erratic Thud
