Blighted Agent Discussion

I very much disagree with removing Leyline of Anticipation. Build-around commanders should always have at least one source of redundancy for their effect. E.g. I run Corrupted Conscience and Blighted Agent in Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest . I think that it's better than Vedalken Orrery, even though you can flash the latter in, just because starting with it in hand is so good, although there's nothing wrong with running both. Ephara and Narset definitely get the thumbs up from me. Ephara is just gas, and Narset at instant-speed is nasty. As for Emry, you've got a 69% chance of milling an artifact with each activation with 16 artifacts and 8 artifact creatures. That's pretty powerful, so I'd include her. You're pretty light on instants and sorceries, and sorceries are probably the card type this deck wants to play least and, thus, where cuts should be coming from, so I'm less into Search for Azcanta. That changes if you put in Junk Diver , Ashnod's Altar , and Krark-Clan Ironworks to combo with Teshar.

Caerwyn, I absolutely adore your concept though - and this does balance out the strict awful that this card brings (to opponents). In modern this card will rarely get up to 9 time counters - tops it'll be 4 or 5, but at that point you should have Blighted Agent or Glistener Elf swing with a Might of Oaks or whatever for the win. Just for my own clarification - the CMC is still , and this card is still an Enchantment? Or has it crossed over into Mono-black Artifact territory? Seems like magic has been moving in that direction anyway.

I know, I know, I hate to recommend it...

But with that being said, it looks like you're playing a lot of proliferate and big creatures with trample, so I'd recommend some infection. You don't have to change too much of the deck, but a few cards here and there can be the difference between doing a lot of damage to someone and killing them outright.

  • Phyrexian Swarmlord . He has infect, he makes mini-infectors for every poison counter out there. It's great. You can even use your commander to buff up the small ones so that you don't have to swing with Swarmlord himself!

  • Triumph of the Hordes . This card can cause you to kill everyone out of nowhere. Swing in at everyone for a lot of damage, they'll usually block enough to live assuming regular damage. This card makes it a lot harder for your opponents to do that.

  • Melira, Sylvok Outcast . This card gives all your creatures infect. It can also counter other infect players. Just a good creature overall that will demand removal over your commander.

  • Lastly, Spinebiter and Blighted Agent . They allow you to give someone some poison counters which you can proliferate off of to win!

If you're not looking to use infect to win, then I'd still recommend a few cards that are cheap:

  • Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter . This gives all your creatures with +1 counters the ability to create mana. Free ramp!

  • Leyline of Anticipation . Casting at instant speed is very powerful. It reduces the amount of time between attacking and letting your opponents interact with your board.

  • Last but not least! Rashmi, Eternities Crafter . Just a good value card that can help you to draw an extra card each turn or even cast something big!

I hope these suggestions help, and good luck with your deck!

my bad. i forgot Invigorate got hit with teh ban hammer on modern. if you are willing to fork over the cash Hinterland Harbor or Vivid Grove and throw in a Distortion Strike or 4 to replace Apostle's Blessing as it functionally works the same to let a creature through to deal damage, but gets a second cast, for free to deal that guaranteed damage. it does have the handicap of being color restricted though, and is less versatile defensively. more offense for less defence gets interesting Blighted Agent is also handy for similar reasons, but that still means splashing blue in. there is also Aqueous Form that will help you scry those pump cards once your poison engine is running

If we're looking for a better counter, maybe just jump to Counterspell ? I think cutting at least two Blighted Agent s for two elves should work...the infect mechanic is more of a backup as is.

I'd cut 3 lands for 3 more pieces of ramp, like a Talisman of Curiosity , Pristine Talisman , Unstable Obelisk , Simic Locket (or any other ravnica card draw rock). Other than that, this deck is pretty great. Maybe put in a Blighted Agent ?

enpc on Any tips for this Volrath ...

unfortunately it's a bit difficult to stay on theme with the whole clone/copy thing, but I would use something like Bramblesnap + Blighted Agent as a finisher personally (comes down to whether you're ok with infect wins).

I would also recommend maknig space for Dark Impostor (can be dumb with Volrath) and Generous Patron (good way of getting counters on stuff and drawing cards).

I disapprove of Constricting Tendrils , Dazzling Lights , and other -X/-0 spells: These are basically Healing Salve , and I think they can be replaced with no loss.

I don't recommend splitting your win condition on infect, but I'd like to point out that Blighted Agent + Unstable Mutation = win over 4 turns, because 4+3+2+1 = 10
