Looks like a great start! I also have a sen triplets deck, and I've been playing it for about a year now. Advice I have? Sen triplets are huge targets and people are quick to get rid of them. Maybe invest in protection for them Lightning Greaves, Robe of Mirrors. Also Authority of the Consuls may interest you. My deck is worth looking at: "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". My favorite deck to play. ENJOY!

So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

Apparently my description needs to be worded differently. I don't need graveyard hate, General Kudro of Drannith naturally deals with those kind of strategies.

I like Reconnaissance but I'm currently looking for cuts to make so I can bring up my land count. I was thinking about cutting Shadows of the Past, Authority of the Consuls, Konda's Banner, Pious Evangel  Flip, Dire Tactics, and Call the Coppercoats. Anything else you think I should cut for more lands?

First, drop Scour. You're in the right colors to destroy or exile whatever you want for FAR less mana. Second, why not add Sphere of Safety, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Windborn Muse, Authority of the Consuls, Orim's Prayer, Righteous Cause, and Single Combat? They compliment what you're doing already pretty well. Lastly, it seems like you could use more life gain payoffs like Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams.

StopShot on Legendary Equipment - Custom Card ...

2 weeks ago

@abby315, Ah, no the formatting is correct if you check the oracle text of Splinter Twin on Gatherer.

I get what you're saying about Splinter Twin being a risk as its easy to get 2-for-1 if you're the Twin player. I tried to replicate that here where you could destroy the equipment with the copy ability on the stack which would cause the combo player to lose the creature later due to the ability. This 2-for-1 only works for artifact removal however.

Do keep in mind Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker does exist in the format as there's no way to 2-for-1 that set-up and both my custom card and the Kiki-Jiki setup can only be pulled off no earlier than turn 5 which is pretty slow/late in the Modern format. While my custom card doesn't die to creature spot-removal like Kiki-Jiki, it does get removed easily to a wide myriad of format staples such as Inquisition of Kozilek, Natural State, Abrupt Decay, Smash to Smithereens, Abrade, Stony Silence, Kolaghan's Command, Rakdos Charm, Collector Ouphe and Karn, the Great Creator. There's also been more cards printed since Splinter Twin's banning that could be effective at countering the strategy that weren't present before such as Dovin's Veto, Authority of the Consuls, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Fry, Unmoored Ego, Trespasser's Curse, Harsh Mentor, Wilt, Force of Negation, Tyrant's Scorn, Spell Queller, Aether Gust, Sorcerous Spyglass, Cindervines and Assassin's Trophy. Given the card pool and turn 5 being the earliest the combo can go off, is the late-game flexibility too strong?

Also this card is designed for Modern competitive and casual EDH value, but more emphasis on Modern.

Epicurus on Card creation challenge

Alright, seems like there's not a taker for another stax companion, so I'll submit another and then wildcard.

Trella, Alela's Emissary

Legendary Creature - Faerie Warlock

Companion - Each creature in your starting deck has CMC 3 or less

Flying, lifelink

Sacrifice a creature: search your library for an artifact or enchantment card with CMC less than or equal to the sacrificed creature's CMC, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

: add or to your mana pool. Use this mana only to cast artifact or enchantment spells.


This one facilitates a popular stax commander more so than being a stax facilitator in general, but she's also a free sac outlet, which is important to the build. Additionally, you could use her to tutor out your Static Orb, Authority of the Consuls, Tangle Wire, Winter Orb, Sphere of Resistance, Rhystic Study, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, etc etc, and can sac the tokens produced by Alela, Artful Provocateur to search for your Chrome Mox, Chalice of the Void, Everflowing Chalice, etc etc...

Anyway, wildcard.

Good afternoon Alledzebu, I took a look at its construction, I really liked the suggestions but I have 3 other decks focused on this type of strategy (resuscitation) that use almost the same cards, it would not be much more fun for a deck focused on doing the even with different commanders. Despite this I will pay a little more attention to this type of strategy by adding Buried Alive and Victimize in place of Judith, the Scourge Diva and Authority of the Consuls, in addition to add Combat Celebrant to make combos more consistent giving more targets for kiki-jiki and Splinter Twin.

I love the cat theme! One suggestion I have is to replace 2 Authority of the Consuls with 2 Kaheera, the Orphanguard in the main deck. I'm not sure the Consuls is really helping your game plan that much.
