Chromatic Star Discussion

Delta-117 on All Hail Our Lord and Savior, Karn!

Hey there I was just wanting to ask you something even though i'm not interested in buying this deck off of you unfortunately. I was wanting to hear your opinion on playing this tron deck anyways, and what you think of it versus the other variants of tron.

I myself currently play a mono version of the deck and this has been my first completed modern deck (or near completed version anyways, as i'm missing the Chalices), and I had been considering if down the road I should maybe try out different variant of the deck. This version of the deck is a lot more of a control deck, and doesn't bother with trying to rush getting all your lands out, and thankfully was a lot cheaper! The good thing about the deck either way is that it still retains a lot of the same cards, and to swap too another variant of tron is a lot cheaper.

Mono Blue Tron

Modern Delta-117


What I would be missing is:4x Karn Liberated

4x Collective Brutality

1x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

2x Thoughtseize

2x Oblivion Stone

1x World Breaker

4x Chromatic Star

4x Chromatic Sphere

And 4x Ancient Stirrings

I understand if Karn Liberated is too expensive but I think you need bigger threats than Batterskull as backup win conditions for Mindslaver.

Wurmcoil Engine

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Not entirely sure what Lantern is in here for but smaller artifacts more regularly seen in Tron would be better served if you really want to play Whir. Artifacts like-

Mind Stone

Chromatic Star

Chromatic Sphere

Blue Tron also has access to Cyclonic Rift as a sort of sweeper

Hi! I love this deck idea, but Spellskite is pretty bad in the current Modern metagame. Have you considered something like Chromatic Stars instead? They fit in with the tron gameplan, while also being artifacts that fuel your Thoughtcasts and pump your Arcbound Ravagers.

If you want removals with different drawbacks you can mix some Dismember along with Beast Within. You may also consider Chromatic Star if more draw power is needed. I'm a huge fan of ramp decks, nice work (:

sylvannos on 25$ tcg mid budget tournament

I'd check out Pauper decklists that are around. These have separate ban lists than Legacy. That means you get to build stronger versions of those decks if the only limits are the Legacy ban list and $25.

Cranial Plating is less expensive than Chromatic Star, for instance, but is soft-banned in Pauper because Cranial Plating was never printed at common. That means you can play a top-tier Pauper Affinity deck with stronger cards. That's not the case with every card in every Pauper deck, but it's probably what I'd look for.

MtG Goldfish has a bunch of Pauper decks with their prices listed. Stompy, Delver, and Burn are good starting points like others have said. I'm pretty sure you can play Boggles on less than $25 if you cut Utopia Sprawl. You could also add Spirit Mantle and Spirit Link. I'm not sure what you would play instead of Noble Hierarch or Deathrite Shaman.

To be honest, I'm not sure why your event isn't going to be just a Pauper tournament, rather than a $25 budget limit. It's something I'd bring up with the organizers that they should consider in the future. Pauper is a lot cheaper on paper anyway, due to printings.

You might also suggest Standard Pauper/Peasant where the only cards banned are rares and mythics. Or having a 75-card proxy Legacy event.

I would suggest running Reality Smasher, Eldrazi Mimic, and or Matter Reshaper. They are all really good in these decks, as they give you the aggro you need and the early game to help. Chromatic Star is very useful for getting Green when you don't have a forest, along with some bonus card draw. The same for Prophetic Prism and Chromatic Sphere.

superhuman21 - He can easily get to his win cons because of the tron lands. Urza's Tower, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Mine can produce 7 mana by turn three, which is enough for Karn Liberated. Expedition Map is in the deck to increase the chances of getting tron (all three lands together) by turn three. Chromatic Star is an arguable choice here, but the benefit of drawing does help being that black isn't well known for drawing (in modern at least). The signets aren't terrible ideas for ramp, but just seem a little unneeded. I would personally say Mind Stone is better as it can draw late game when the mana is no longer relevant.

Torment of Scarabs is too slow for the competitive scene he's trying to build this deck for, however Warping Wail is a decent choice for sideboard.

Pieguy396 on Black Heartless Tron

Heartless summoning probably works perfectly well with the rest of the Tron package, but I'm slightly confused as to why you're running Diabolic Revelation (you're not really a combo deck), Mindslaver (kinda meh without Academy Ruins) and Trading Post (a little slow) in your deck. Wouldn't something like Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star be much better? I'd also recommend maybe a few more copies of your Tron payoff cards, and maybe Oblivion Stone and/or All Is Dust as well.
