sylvannos on Blue Tron into legacy suggestions

16 hours ago

The thing about Legacy is that it has Wasteland (44% of Legacy decks use it), meaning Tron is unplayable. You're also going to run into problems of playing a blue deck without Force of Will.

The obvious solution would be to play MUD, Eldrazi, or Sea Stompy, but you're on a budget and those decks want City of Traitors.

What other Modern decks do you have? I see you have Eldrazi decks in your profile, these might be doable without City of Traitors and you can load up on Ghost Quarters instead of Wasteland.

You might also consider playing Burn, since it's actually cheaper to build in Legacy than it is in Modern. Mono-Black Reanimator is another choice if you have some Entombs lying around.

Helm of Obedience combo can also be built on a budget if you have a bunch of Modern cards already. Leyline of the Void, Darkslick Shores, and Rest in Peace are its expensive cards. The rest of it is $1 rares.

The issue is "budget" in Legacy means ~$100. There's even more options if your budget is $200~$300. Remember, Legacy is normally a $3,000 format. $25 is what people spend on individual sideboard cards.

I need 4x City of Traitors, definitely not spending 1000$. Anyone have the non tournament legal versions theyre willing to trade? Let me know, thanks!

sylvannos on Most Consistent Early Turn Win

1 month ago

@StonedJesus: It's not helpful because it's not legal in any format, nor is it the most consistent turn 1 kill in a non-format, nor is it the most consistent turn 1 kill in any format, nor is it actually able to win on turn 1, and nor does it actually have the most efficient card choices (Metalworker with no Staff of Domination? No City of Traitors? etc.).

It is, however, misleading and looks more like you wanted some views/upvotes on your deck.

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide

Rite of Flame is too weak and Mana Seism may be a bit too deep.

Good RocksChrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Metalworker

Ok rocks to cut if you need more slots.Worn Powerstone, Jeweled Amulet, Fractured Powerstone

EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.

Draw and tutorsSensei's Divining Top, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Tormenting Voice, Wheel of Fortune, Imperial Recruiter,

I do not like Gamble without reliable graveyard interaction and I generally dont like Winds of Change especially if your opponents have any graveyard interactions.

Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.

Extra turns can be a big surprise win for this strategy. Love them. Final Fortune, Last Chance, Warrior's Oath

Artifact hate seems good but missing Vandalblast. By Force, Shattering Spree, Trash for Treasure.

Moon effects are strong but another meta call. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon

Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash

Equipment assists seem good for faster hands but kind fragile. Brass Squire and Magnetic Theft

Dire Fleet Daredevil is a good card.Goblin Welder, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, and Welding Jar are all good.

Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.

Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

It's really hard to do because you don't have Cloudpost, City of Traitors, Mishra's Workshop, and so on. Part of the reason artifact Prison is possible in older formats is because you have a "symmetrical" effect that isn't symmetrical because one side has more mana than the other.

We also don't have anything close to Wasteland (or even Rishadan Port) in Modern. The closest thing is Ghost Quarter'ing your opponent and them failing to find after you've done it to them over and over via something like Crucible of Worlds or Life from the Loam.

Maybe we'll have a prison deck viable if WotC goes nuts and unbans Cloudpost or prints something that makes turn 2 Tron consistent. Or if we get some sort of new mox/Lotus Petal-style card that allows for a turn 1 Trinisphere.

VietMoneys on Gitrog Erosion: All That Exists Deserves to Perish

I'm so excited to have a Gitrog deck in the family!

May I start by suggesting Ancient Tomb, City of Traitors, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, and Deserted Temple?

Also, for the love of God, get thee a Swarmyard!

Charge on, Jefe!

So stoked that the extended playgroup will have one of these guys in it at last!

May I suggest City of Traitors, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Ancient Tomb and Deserted Temple for starters?

Also, by God, Swarmyard!
