ClockworkSwordfish on Pride of Double Strike

8 months ago

Pretty neat idea. One thing I like to take advantage of with double strike is capitalizing on effects that trigger every time a creature deals combat damage - which, with double strike, means twice with every attack. For instance, if your hit your opponent with a double striker equipped with Prying Blade , you'll get two treasure tokens out of the deal. That definitely sounds more attractive to me than the one extra power from Marauder's Axe! Likewise, a Beacon Hawk with double strike can untap two of your creatures.

Soltari Visionary is a card I recommend to most white pauper decks, since he's virtually unblockable and can repeatedly take out your opponent's permanents for free. There are no shortage of enchantment-based decks in pauper, as your deck helps illustrate! You might also appreciate Cavalry Drillmaster , as +2 power and double strike for cheap can be a real surprise before you attack.

Hi JessT! It looks like Armadillo Cloak isn't modern legal!

I might consider consolidating some of your creatures and instead of having two of a bunch of different creatures, choose a few that you'd really like to see come out in a game and give yourself 3 or 4 of them.

I might also think about adding some more cards with a CMC, so that you have a better chance of being able to throw something out there on your first turn.

A cool thing you could possibly do with Pheres-Band Raiders and Pheres-Band Tromper is use cards like Beacon Hawk, Act of Heroism, Aim High, Djeru's Resolve, Gift of Growth, Ornamental Courage, or Prepare to untap them after they've attacked and activate their abilities.

I'm also worried about Pheres-Band Warchief being in there, because if it's out on the battlefield, cards like Pheres-Band Raiders and Pheres-Band Tromper will have vigilance, and thus not tap when they attack and not be able to activate their untap abilities.

I hope some of this is useful!

Soul Link

Beacon Hawk


Please link the cards related to your question.

If Beacon Hawk were to be unblocked, all damage would be prevented by Sandskin. The hawk would not deal combat damage, so it's untap ability would not trigger. Since no damage is being dealt, Soul Link would also gain you no life.

Grind on Bunch 'o' Birbs (XTREME $UB $30)

Jazal Goldmane, although not a bird, could be a wincon for your go-wide strategy.
also the new Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is a bird! you could run it in the 99.
also Commander Eesha is a bird and unblockable and can block without dying.
also Tine Shrike looks kind of underwhelming if you don't really go in on the infect thing.
i think Beacon Hawk is cool.
you do have blue so Arcane Denial could help you out.

Sendaran on Modern Blue White Budget Willbreaker

Lands that target creatures are absolutely hilarious with Willbreaker. Rogue's Passage is one of the best options. Sandstone Bridge, Skyline Cascade and Soaring Seacliff are other options in your colors. Ruins of Oran-Rief can be used against Eldrazi, so sideboard only at best.

Kytheon's Irregulars is another budget option for things you already have. Topplegeist is nice too, although you'll miss on the extra fun from delirium without some other changes. It's still a solid one drop.

And here's a random list of dirt cheap things that get those triggers in different ways: Beacon Hawk, Abuna Acolyte, Benevolent Ancestor, Crossbow Infantry, Jhessian Balmgiver, Viridian Longbow, Zealous Inquisitor. The last 3 are probably the most interesting and flexible even without Willbreaker in play.
