@gregfiction I accidentally wiped your comment so I'll just respond here :P

Thanks for the support! Krakens are a wonderful thing, and it's great to see some more love for Stormtide Leviathan . I've been playing with him a long time, and I'm glad he's seeing play in other decks too now!

Very interesting suggestions. I might have to try Boon Satyr for ferocious activation. He's easier for me to cast than Savage Knuckleblade , and I can even bestow him late game. I really like how versatile the knuckler is, but I'll have to do some playtesting because I think you might be right here.

Archetype of Endurance is very tempting, I've wrestled with the idea quite a bit, but I've found Archetype of Imagination just absolutely cripples all decks that don't run removal. And being able to swing freely with mana dorks for those last couple points of damage really helps. I might put some Archetype of Endurance in the SB for removal heavy matchups though, because they give me a really hard time.

Honestly, splashing red is one of the better choices I've made. Yes, the mana screw becomes a problem slightly more often, but not enough to be a concern. Red has just provided me with the extra punch I need to close out those close games. Burning Anger + Kiora's Follower is a beautiful thing when it happens, especially with Tromokratis . I can't say enough good things about Xenagod, pulling a hasty 16/16 Levy with STU feels amazing. I've honestly debated going to 3 of him, but it's too many dead draws for my liking.

If you ever post your deck on here let me know, I'd love to take a look at it!

After playing last nights MODERN tournament at my local hobby shop to take my deck for it's first "test drive", I have concluded that I needed make the following adjustments to my deck:

ADDITIONS

Mainboard: 1x Genesis Hydra , 2x Savage Knuckleblade , 1x Life's Legacy , 1x Temple of Epiphany and 3x Negate

Sideboard: 1x Chord of Calling , 1x Hydra Broodmaster , 1x Polukranos, World Eater & 1x Mindswipe

REMOVED

Mainboard: 1x Karametra's Acolyte , 1x Prophet of Kruphix , 2x Forest , 1x Temple of Mystery & 1x Mindswipe

Sideboard: 1x Archetype of Imagination , 1x Reclamation Sage , 1x Temur Charm , 1x Soul of Theros

Why I made these changes

  1. I kept having my mana ramp creatures taken out by decks loaded with removal cards.

  2. I felt that Savage Knuckleblade would be nice to counter removal AND it would be easier to play with Genesis Hydra . Also, it's a really good sacrifice for Life's Legacy as well. So adding more just makes sense I think. Also, that is the reason why I choose move one Chord of Calling into the sideboard in order to make room for another Genesis Hydra and a Life's Legacy .

  3. I want to shift my card searching strategy to drawing more cards utilizing Life's Legacy because of the 3 additional cheap costing creature additions. Also, I want make it less dependent on using a Chord of Calling which is slightly more expensive but better at finding any ONE specific card (I'm thinking of the cards I choose to only have ONE copy of in the deck to pull with the Chords).

  4. I want to see if the deck can function reasonably well with 20 lands vs. 22 lands. 22 lands seemed to work fine for the most part. However, if possible I'd like to free up a little more deck space for additional counterspell cards. This is obviously going to require some testing and it will undoubtedly be more risky. However, I do have quite few mana producing creature cards, so maybe it will be okay. Also, as result of the change I tweaked the mana based slightly to favor blue and red spells at little bit more than before.

Anyway your feedback and suggestions about my recent changes would be appreciated.

I would agree you have a valid point about Life's Legacy that is does have a vulnerability to counterspells. However, if my opponent is NOT running a control deck or a deck that has counterspells it will work just fine. Also, if they are running counterspells, it would be a good opportunity in games 2 & 3 to use Temur Charm against them as well as Mistcutter Hydra ]. In my playtesting games, this card has proven to be invaluable to in consistently generating enough mana to be pull off a 5-7 turn win and making the deck much more consistent overall.

I did actually think about using Crater's Claws yesterday actually as I was glancing over all the standard legal Green, Blue, and Red cards I MIGHT have wanted to use on the Gatherer website. I did entertain the idea of using it for a bit. However, I liked that idea that Mindswipe in a pinch could be used as a simple counterspell when the situation calls for it and that is why I want to keep it over Crater's Claws which can't counter anything. Also, as I noted in my description, EVEN IF my opponent is aware of how I plan to use Mindswipe finish them off and they absolutely REFUSE to play any spells, the fact is that I STILL WILL BE ABLE SPELLS even if they won't. So eventually, I will probably end up overpowering them with my OTHER win condition. Well I guess I will see how it works out in some actual matches though.

Surrak Dragonclaw is a REALLY awesome suggestion and I WILL use it. However, I think I am going to replace the 1 Archetype of Imagination the sideboard to deal with burn decks specifically and continue to run the other in my main deck. My reason is simple, if my opponent isn't running a burn deck and/or they do not have a creature with Reach then it will CLEARLY be the better choice than giving my creatures Trample to force SOME extra damage through when I could force ALL of my damage through. Also, that would also very likely kill an opponent off the turn that I play it as well because it will be very likely that if I pull the Archetype out of the deck, it will be because I ALREADY have a Hydra Broodmaster or other cards ready to kill an opponent at the first unguarded moment. Also, you have to admit a lot of decks, especially non-green decks will not have creatures with Reach either. Some will but most will not and even if they do, they still have to compete against my beefed Hydra cards too.

The thing I don't like about running Dictate of Karametra is that will help out my opponent as well. So I think leave the Karametra's Acolyte s in the deck.

I will certainly give Scuttling Doom Engine some thought IF I can find room for in my deck.

Feed the Clan is a good suggestion, however in my most of my playtest games I didn't get creatures out that could take full advantage that card until at least turns 4 and 5. Also, this card unlike Resolute Archangel CANNOT be played with Chord of Calling or Genesis Hydra either so I would have to run multiples of it in the deck to hope to draw it at all which I simply cannot afford the space. Also, I think you would be surprised at my odds of playing Resolute Archangel WITHOUT a Chord or a Genesis Hydra to pay it's white mana cost. Think of it this way, I get either a Sylvan Caryatid or a Mana Confluence and a Kiora's Follower or any combination of 2 of them ((except of 2 Kiora's Followers of course), then I will have NO problems playing this card if I were to draw unassisted against all of the odds and believe me I have. That's 10 potential mana sources to draw a single white (or black if were to splash it in) card.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions and feedback. I really appreciate it. If you have any more feel free to share them. I will give you credit in my description for suggesting Surrak Dragonclaw and Scuttling Doom Engine IF I decide to add it into my deck.
