Chancellor of the Tangle Discussion

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.

Eldrich Evolution decks are usually good at getting out a turn 2 Magus of the Moon / Eidolon of Rhetoric off a mana dork for the occasional free win.

Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).

Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.

Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".

I might add more suggestions if I think about them.

You just neet to cast Faithless Looting discarding Griselbrand and then Goryo's Vengeance him into play. You get the mana required with the Chancellor of the Tangle or Simian Spirit Guide .

Then you do the combo by drawing your whole deck and casting Fury of the Horde for multiple attacks and Soul Spike for extra damage/life and Nourishing Shoal for extra health.

Griselbrand is insanely good. In modern, the idea behind griselcannongriselcannon decks is that yes, while they are a glass cannon build, they are stupid fast.

The ability to pay life to draw cards is super good - especially when the deck is built around cards like Chancellor of the Tangle and Nourishing Shoal to gain back chunks of life. From there, you can use him in conjunction with his life gain) to chain together extra combat phases.

I think this is something that quite a few players forget, there is no different between winning on two life as there is on twenty life. And often being able to trade life for resources will end up giving you the upper hand. Griselbrand embodies this. Risk/reward profiles and all that.

Im going to also recommend Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl as its the best ramp combo in Modern. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is required for any deck that has devotion due to its amazing strength in these decks. Instead of useless stat cards with no abilities like Terrain Elemental, use better statted ones that add to your devotion like Leatherback Baloth. Naturalize or something similar is a must to combat all sorts of stuff, specifically Ensnaring Bridge and cards like it. The big cards in your deck need to have massively good abilities to make it worth ramping into them, so i recommend stuff like Genesis Wave, Tooth and Nail, Craterhoof Behemoth. Maybe even add some Llanowar Elves and other mana dorks to improve the consistency of your ramp. Garruk Wildspeaker is fantastic with Utopia Sprawl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Chancellor of the Tangle also helps you ramp.

I have a deck I will soon be posting soon with a similar concept, cheating progenitus into play early in Modern. The concept would work well here for Dragon's too.

First, mana ramp should be Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl. Sprawl makes lands worth 2 mana and arbor elf can untap them so they can tap twice in a turn, so you have 4 mana! Just watch out for Ghost Quarter. Also, Arbor Elf works really well with shock lands so you don't have to take the pain to use the color you want.

Chancellor of the Tangle is a big 6/7 body, but what makes him awesome is that you reveal him from hand for 1 Green Mana. You don't even need to cast him for the ramp. Same story with Simian Spirit Guide, just exile it from your hand and You have a free bonus Red Mana to work with. I would run both in your deck.

Now that you have mana out of the way, how do you cheat in creatures? Use any of these: Elvish Piper allows you to slam creatures down for 1 Green mana. Simply amazing, bit she dies to removal a lot. Next you have Quicksilver Amulet which is a little safer because it is an artifact. You can usually get there by Turn 2 and begin slamming creatures on Turn 3. Finally, you have Dramatic Entrance, my personal favorite. You can, at instant speed, slam in any creature you want. Simply too much fun not to play this card.

In summary, I hope these cards can slot into your deck around Sarkhan, and will actually make this a competitive build too.
