Back to Nature Discussion
1 week ago
Looks like a fun build, just not sure how it'd hold up against Back to Nature or Paraselene or Tempest of Light, or such since the deck relies so heavily on enchantments. The other issue would be removal as black is notoriously weak at dealing with indestructible/hexproof creatures or opposing enchantments/artifacts, particularly if an opponent has a Tajuru Preserver or drops a Song of the Dryads/Imprisoned in the Moon/Darksteel Mutation on your commander. Elixir of Immortality is a decent way to get back your stuff back into the library after wrath effects or when you've used up most your instants/sorceries.
Cool idea, very unique! +1

Hey thanks for reading
Really cool that this deck inspired yours :D I sticked to my devotion plan from the beginning. I tested the ramp with Extraplanar Lens instead of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but i cannot fetch for it that easy like a Nykthos with Weathered Wayfarer.This deck is all about consistency, so everything that i need is at least a "6x" of in the deck. I also tested Endless Horizons. The problem here was the 1-devotion ramp and the zero boardinpact after entering the battlefield. An artifact removal could also kill nearly my entire mana base then. Forbidding Watchtower is a nice idea, but to trigger Emeria, The Sky Ruin more consistent, i stick to Basic Lands as much as possible. (Makes it even harder for common hate cards in modern like Blood Moon). I also tested Cloudshift: The pay-of was too small, with a Wall of Omens it's 1mana=draw 1card.With Thalia's Lancers it was more or less => Cloudshift=Any legendary card in the library.Cast Out is really good as a permanent removal, which i need but it's not really productive to the devotion plan. It has to be at least or even
The Modern format is a formate of hate. Hate to lock your opponent. There are many many forms of enchantment hate Back to Nature. This deck is barely hateable while spreading out cardhate like Nevermore,Runed Halo, etc

michaeljager We have ways of protecting our enchantments in both the main and side. Most decks don't run a ton of enchantment interaction so Greater Auramancy can shut out targeted removal.Aura Barbs is an intersting card as it gets around targeting both us and our enchantments. Fortunately the card is also not played so we shouldn't have to worry about it? There's always Nevermore when we don't know how else to answer something. Halo and Nevermore and Gideon's Intervention can protect us further from interaction. Nevermore can name those Fracturing Gusts and Back to Natures.
Idyllic Tutor got gives us access to our win cons, allowing us to play fewer. Ascension could be the right choice without Suppression Field but I want to be open to bringing that card back in if need be. Ascension is also stronger with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. We forgo that to splash for Blood Moon.
I'm glad Pithing Needle had a chance to shine. Such an underrated card. It was a. It of a revelation for this deck as Tron is brutally hard for us to beat. The Blood Moon splash and the Needles will help make that matchup much more favorable.

i run 3 ezuri because most of my opponents so far have always aimed to remove ezuri if they died to it on game one. If i don't need it, it's one of the cards to be boarded out.
you're right, I should get a copy of Back to Nature.
Thanks for the help, and thanks again for coming back to comment! (forgetting understandable, I do it sometimes as well)

Sorry for skipping you, totally blanked out and forgot. Anyways, mainboard looks solid but maybe just consider balancing out the curve a bit. You look really 3 drop heavy. I personally wouldn't run 3 copies of Ezuri. Probably would cut it to two at most. Also one copy of Back to Nature in the sideboard would help against things like hexproof decks.

Oops, forgot that Heliod's Pilgrim only tutors auras (Sometimes we all need to read more)

Your enchantments are not totally protected from removal; they can still be targeted in response to the upkeep trigger for Concerted Effort. Perhaps you could include Privileged Position or Greater Auramancy for extra protection, though this still doesn't help against Back to Nature effects. Your permanents don't get protection the turn they enter so most are weak to removal that turn, especially Elite Arcanist, so a few counter spells might not be a bad idea as well. They would also be useful against Back to Nature effects so Counterspell and similar are good suggestions for main deck and your Cunning Wish sideboard cards. Rewind is also a nice counter spell to play with Azorius Chancery.
As for your three perceived weaknesses one of the best solutions to card burn/mill is Elixir of Immortality and since you are in white you could play Wheel of Sun and Moon instead. Either way these are sideboard cards as I don't think you need them main deck given your deck isn't going to draw itself out. I don't think you are that weak to infect since protection negates infect (as long as you can get Opalescence out early enough to create blockers) and you have Spellskite to steal any pump spells. For alternative win conditions counter spells are a good choice, and fit with my earlier suggestions, otherwise you can add cards like Nevermore to your sideboard.
