It'd be no fun to just include Standard legal cards, so lets just go Modern.

The first thing that would 100% happen is MonoDross. 60x Chancellor of the Dross .

Everything else would run Providence to survive it. Then they'd probably run alot of Chancellor of the Forge and Memnite or some sort of combo with Chancellor of the Tangle , Gemstone Caverns , and Simian Spirit Guide . Maybe Midnight Guard / Presence of Gond as a t2 Splinter Twin w/out haste?

One big problem is the fact that MonoDross Mirror matches would just be like "Lololol neither of us can win we both at 21 let's see who concedes first" or it would be whoever goes first wins bc the other person nat mills first.

What say you?

I feel like the Chancellor cycle are amazing for a deck that can offer such awful chances at risk v. reward lmao. Chancellor of the Spires , Chancellor of the Tangle and Chancellor of the Forge for reference. Opening Hand? GREAT! Not opening hand...meh.

Good luck with the deck! +1

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.
