Probably something like Bitterblossom or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, could make a token subtheme and add Intangible Virtue and Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

lagotripha You are probably right about Bloodghast being superfluous. Bitterblossom has proven to be the best piece with Vraska. I’d like to test Thragtusk and Liliana, the Last Hope in that slot.

StopShot on Alesha's Prohibition: Bears and Staxes

@Gorbak, I'm not a stax expert, I'm just relaying what cards I've encountered that have made things challenging for me. Usually your focus is to hit your opponents hands and resources as well as their board-state. Alesha likes playing a lot of cheap spells, so those limited land-wipe cards would probably hurt a lot on your opponents without hurting you. It's important to know what disadvantages your deck can get away with more than your opponents decks and then once you figure that out you try to exploit it as much as possible.

A lot of stax decks I go against will usually stick to a synergy that really goes out of control if left unchecked. Synergies like: Contamination + Bitterblossom. Smokestack + Assemble the Legion. Chains of Mephistopheles + Anvil of Bogardan. Winter Orb + Stoneshaker Shaman. Desecration Elemental + Assault Suit. Rule of Law + Knowledge Pool. Creating any of the following locks can lead to the table easily losing the game if not answered appropriately. Getting those nasty locks usually requires lots of tutor effects like Demonic Tutor to maintain consistency.

Toak83 I originally wanted it to be abzan for Knight of the Reliquary (and Path to Exile) but didn’t think that was enough to warrant the splash, even with some sideboard adds. I completely overlooked Voice of Resurgence which fits nicely into the plan of creating extra permanents AND giving us value if we sacrifice it. Aside from Bitterblossom, we kind of struggle against control as is so points all around for Voice. I’ll have to rework things a bit but I like that plan better than my janky delirium sub theme. Thanks for the suggestion!

if you decide to add black, it should be for Lingering Souls, Bitterblossom, Assassin's Trophy, and Abrupt Decay. there arent any black planeswalkers that i myself would add. in fact the only planeswalker i'd use at all is Huatli, Radiant Champion.

Seems a nice deck, but I'd make some suggestions:

First of all I'd add Fatal Push. It's very usefull when you want to remove an annoying opponent's creature. Probably I'd put it instead of Reaper from the Abyss, since it's true that the reaper is a creature that does good things, but it costs really much.

I don't really like Bone Picker and Savra, Queen of the Golgari since you don't have so many chances to cast the picker in the first turns and you don't sacrifice creatures, which makes the queen useless

Cards you could consider are: Bitterblossom, Basilica Screecher, Beckon Apparition, Daggerdrome Imp, Gurmag Swiftwing, Kitesail Freebooter, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Ravenous Chupacabra

I understand why Awaken the Bear and Unnatural Predation are there (you want trample creatures). But aren't better Rancor, Vines of Vastwood or Predator's Strike?

Last thing: I'd add more Overgrown Tomb (raising it up to 3x) and 4x of Verdant Catacombs

nobu_the_bard on Vedalken Shackles response to Contamination ...

1 week ago

It's your turn and you control Contamination and Vedalken Shackles. An opponent controls a 1/1 token. It doesn't matter if the 1/1 was created by an opponent's Bitterblossom in this situation - that trigger doesn't come into play on your turn, it triggered on your opponent's turn (otherwise you wouldn't need to steal the token).

Contamination's triggered ability goes on the stack during your upkeep. You can respond to it by activating Vedalken Shackles to steal the token. You will control the token when Comtamination's trigger goes to resolve.

Instead, if you control both Bitterblossom and Contamination, you can stack the triggers such that Contamination is at the bottom of the stack, and Bitterblossom is at the top. Bitterblossom will resolve first, and so generate a token before Contamination requires a creature to sacrifice.

If instead, an opponent controlled a permanent with "EACH upkeep, create a 1/1 token" you could still do this. Opponents' triggers are put onto the stack after yours during your turn; they will resolve before yours. Thus the 1/1 will be created before your Contamination tries to resolve, during the round of priority before you go start to resolve it, you can activate the Vedalken Shackles to steal the token.

Squirrelbacon on G/w tokens modern

I really do think that History of Benalia should see modern play. That card is quite silly and in theory I could see it replacing (or at least being split with) Bitterblossom.

Monastery Mentor is also one of my favorite cards ever, so of course I'll recommend my guy. The problem with both is those are that they are 3-drops. Playing 3 of each plus 3-4 Spectral Procession is a super dense 3 spot.

A lot of the other white token cards just aren't very good... Raise the Alarm feels terribad most of the time. Gather the Townsfolk is just a worse RtA. If in tokens you get full value off of Timely Reinforcements you're doing it wrong.

Lingering Souls really makes the entire token archetype. Without Lingering Souls, you lack on the value aspect and then the next best path to go is Young Pyromancer. I think it's doable to do , but splashing is I think necessary. Even if it's just for Lingering Souls.
