Darth_Savage on Did someone say random mythics?

Hi Asder, I found my way here from the advertise-your-modern-deck forum page...

First off, Careful Study isn't modern legal, heck, Ponder and Preordain are banned, though we all hope one of them comes off the list, maybe this month (probably not). So in blue maybe Magus of the Bazaar , which your opponent will likely remove before you get to use it...

Dragonlord Kolaghan, is a solid reanimation target as are Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Void Winnower and Iona, Shield of Emeria These all impact the board in some way the turn they come into play Sphinx of the Steel Wind, is nice, but has no impact that turn. Off the top of my head; Massacre Wurm , Hellkite Overlord , Architects of Will , Torgaar, Famine Incarnate , Flayer of the Hatebound , Tyrant of Discord or Ashen Rider have an impact on the board state the turn they enter play, they are of variable quality, but I'd rather see them than Sphinx of the Steel Wind, which does nothing without Kolaghan.

The other issue I see here is that you are either taking a mulligan or looting to find As Foretold, which is key, but how often will you have to tutor (Tolaria West) for a last ditch As Fortold via a lucky Ancestral Vision? More to the point, what is keeping you alive against fast aggro? The deck you based this on had Hollow One , but your looting spells won't work with it, maybe if you ran 4x Darkness , maybe you could survive and combo off... Lasty point on your deck, I'd up your land count to 18, maybe 2x Darkslick Shores ?

Now for a separate point, as I said, I found my way here from the advertise-your-modern-deck forum page. I recently posted a deck (Power 4 is Ferocious) there, after reviewing Chadnausem Control on the decks page. 2 When you post, you must offer feedback on the deck posted immediately before yours (leave the feedback on that deck's page). This feedback needs to be genuine; "Cool deck" replies don't count. Try to be as helpful as possible. You did not do this, Vannifar&Kiki's devotted PØD has no comment from yourself, so it's a little off to complain about others not following the rules, when actually they have...

I hope this feedback helps, good luck with your brew.

  • I've found that Ashen Rider is a good political tool since people don't really like their stuff exiled. It is a card to consider taking out though.

  • I've definitely been on the edge about Butcher of Malakir , I agree with you here

  • I've been on the edge about Extractor Demon too.

  • I like the "may" clause on Harvester of Souls , but it is definitely a card to consider replacing.

  • In a vacuum Knight of the Last Breath is definitely horrible. However, in this deck it can really work. Sacrificing something to just get a token out of it (along with any death triggers) is useful, and the low 4/4 stats are more than compensated for by the fact that it has Afterlife 4.

  • I do like Krav, the Unredeemed since it can help with many different areas of the deck.

  • Most of my tokens are white, which is why I have Light of the Legion . It is a card that have really been leaning towards cutting though.

  • Regna, the Redeemer is definitely expensive, but I do like token production and the fact that she can tutor for Krav. Definitely one that might not make the cut though.

  • Nomads' Assembly and Storm Herd synergize very well with the token theme, and the fact that all those tokens will gain me tons of life is worth it to me. To be honest since this won't be cEDH they aren't extremely expensive by commander terms, though Storm Herd is definitely pretty high on the curve.

  • Again, while it might be higher on the curve Rise of the Dark Realms won't be extremely hard to get to. Although, target recursion might be better in this deck.

  • With all the tokens I'm gonna get attacking will still be relevant, especially since the tokens dying can still trigger effects. Cathars' Crusade can help, it might not make it in though.

  • Divine Visitation is another card I've been on the fence about, it would probably be better in another deck.

  • While Sanguine Bond /equisite blood do combo, it's not one that I'm actively searching for. 99.999999999999% of the time they will end up being on their own.

  • Been on the edge about True Conviction and Grave Betrayal .

  • Sword of Light and Shadow just gives that extra lifegain and recursion, just have it in the "protection" category because I didn't know where to put it.

Lifeline is cool, I've never seen that before

Totally forgot about Razaketh and Sheoldred. I feel stupid now.

Bontu's will definitely do work

Teferi's Protection has been in and then cut more times then I can count, it is definitely staying this time though.

I've been considering Smothering Abomination , it would be good.

Oversold Cemetery is a really cool card.

Toxic Deluge is a good one, forgot about it too.

I really appreciate this! I'm sorry if it seems like I'm not accepting suggestions/criticism, I just like to provide explanations.


Thanks hkhssweiss!

I don't think i have much use for those cards.
Budget reanimator decks use Footsteps of the Goryo to reanimate them, and that is where cards like Ashen Rider shine. If i would want a "FINISH HIM" bomb of the top of eldritch evolution, i wouldn't run Moldgraf Monstrosity as even cards like Terastodon (destroying my own lands) are better options - probably i would go for something like Avenger of Zendikar or Liege of the Tangle...

(and i have no clue why would i want to play terastodon...)

To me (at least) Void Winnower look like a more fun, but ultimately more easily removed Iona, Shield of Emeria

Enral, what do you think about Rite of Replication? I like the idea of having for example 6 copy of Ashen Rider or Cloudblazer

I saw your forum post and figured I'd stop by. Budget reanimator builds frequently use Ashen Rider, Terastodon, Moldgraf Monstrosity or Void Winnower. Polymorph, Eldritch Evolution and Unburial Rites style decks are all essentially creature toolboxes, perhaps you can borrow ideas from those other decks. Hope this helps and good luck with your brew.

Ashen Rider sadly, fun card, well overpriced IMO
