Courser of Kruphix Discussion

clayperce on Ponza.dec (Deckbuilding Primer)

Chandra does everything we want a card to do. She can +1 for Impulse Draw, a few extra points of damage, or Ramp. She can -3 for spot removal. And her -7 and a couple low-CMC spells will win the game.

And the synergy between her, Courser of Kruphix, and Tireless Tracker is especially insane.

Hey, sorry it took me a while to respond, Ive been very busy, but I don't know if you know this but there is a competetive version of this deck that you can compare this with TappedOut Wouldn't let me hyperlink MTGGoldFish

also Ill include the link to my deck that has some different cards, I was going for a little bit more of a control variant. I think your deck is better and I plan to make changes, but if you are curious for more options I have a bunch of different enchantment cards in mine.My VersionI also want to say, that although I love how budget you have kept your versionThere are two cards that after watching various people play versions of this deck I think are almost essential.

Utopia Sprawl and Courser of KruphixEspecially because these two cards allow you to keep comboing off. Once you hav Eidolon of the Blossoms out if you draw a Utopia sprawl you can just cast it on an untapped land and keep going. Courser of Kruphix is even more important, because it can prevent you from drawing a land once. If you do not play the land on your turn you can keep playing enchantment and prevent one land draw by playing it off of the top of your deck instead.

Most decks also run Leyline of Sanctity, but I would run Ivory Mask which while noticeably worse is noticeably cheaper.

Nice Deck!!!

Thanks again for all of the useful insight - the perspective of others is always a big help.

Going with the version outlined just above, thinking about replacing the Baloths with three Courser of Kruphix and one more Scavenging Ooze. Might help keep me from running out of steam so fast in the mid-game, if it comes to it.

I'm with solarPULSAR ... Mono-G LD is a great budget approach, but if you want to be more competitive you'll need to upgrade to RG or maybe Temur Ponza.

If you're a fan of the Eternal Witness + Primal Command soft lock, I strongly recommend taking a look at Therabbins' deck.

If you want to stick with Mono-G, I strongly recommend creating a deck and adding the link to your OP rather than just listing the cards as you did ... it's much easier to give deck advice when it's organized as a TappedOut deck :-)

Three big suggestions though, for smoother play:

Finally, you might want to drop by the PonzaMTG group on Reddit and ask there ... it's a large and helpful community, and always has lots to say about Land Destruction strategies :-)

Icbrgr I find burn to be a relatively good matchup in general, so I don't think it is necessary to play a lifegain effect like this. I think if I wanted a lifegain effect from landfall though, I would play Courser of Kruphix as it also provides card advantage and is a better blocker as well. The description needs to be updated, as this deck doesn't rely on landfall that much besides Tireless Tracker. Thank you for the suggestion

  1. I've been back and fourth on Knight. What I really like about it is that it's a game ending threat if it isn't dealt with and it synergizes really well with the rest of the deck. I'm not totally sold on splashing basically just for it being 100% correct, but I've been trying it.

  2. I haven't made an update to the list in a hot minute, but I'll probably be cutting Loam. It seems really good on paper, but it's been really clunky in practice. I just have not gotten around to updating because of school mostly.

  3. What makes Eldritch Evolution so great in GW Value is that you can turn your turn one mana dorks into a sideboard card on turn two. Against decks like burn, storm, or dredge you need things like Eidolon of Rhetoric, Courser of Kruphix, or Scavenging Ooze before turn three or you're just going to get run over, and Evolution essentially gives you an extra copy of each. In our list, trading a three drop creature for either a Gitrog Monster or Ob Nixilis on Turn 4 at the earliest isn't quite good enough to use a slot.

  4. I think if you want to play Aven Mindcensor or Lotus Cobra, you'll probably just want to play GW Valuetown over trying to resolve Gitrog Monsters and Ob Nixiliss (Ob Nixili?). I think Cobra is really sweet with Tracker since you rarely will have turns where you aren't able to use all of your mana since you're cracking clues, but the deck would need a lot of reworking with the Cobras. It seems really sweet though.

  5. I've played more midrangy Gitrog Lists in the past running things like Liliana of the Veil and Lingering Souls and I think Liliana shines in those decks. The problem with her here is basically that we don't really have the slots for her. I'm not sure what we can cut for her. I like Liliana the Last Hope off of sideboard though. There are a decent amount of good x/1s in Modern that we want to kill as well as she grinds well against control and midrange decks.

Thanks for the questions, I hope I answered them well. I'm still messing with the list pretty often so don't take it for gold. There are definitely ways the deck can be improved, and I'm trying to figure that out as I go.

First of all, thanks for the feedbacks, Emzed!so first: Obstinate Baloth is not necessary in the sideboard because I've played against jund a lot, and Lili have never been a problem against this deck as we have a lot of mmana dudes that we can sac to it's -2 ability and we have Sorcerous Spyglass in the sideboard too. Now with the life gain ability, we have 3 Primal Command and 1 Scavenging Ooze in the mainboard and 1 Courser of Kruphix in the sideboard, I'm sure it's for the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, we must run four of those for a few reasons:-It have a big target on his back, with all the fields pf ruins and the ghost quarters running around;-You can still play it even if you have already have one on the battlefield the turn where you cast a huge Gwave for example, it generates crazy amounts of mana and you can make some kind of loop if you get a nyktohs, an Ewitness and a few lands out of your Gwave a play Gwave again for a billion;-it's just so good !Now the EWitness are essential, because your hand usually get ripped apart in the beggining, so nice there, and most importantly, you can lock your opponent with it and the Primal commands.

Saljen on GW Solemnity Enchantress

Since you seem to be going full combo, I'd run the full 4x Idyllic Tutors. Idyllic Tutor lets you run 1 copy of certain enchantments, yet still get them on the board reliably. You clearly have too many cards in the deck, so that's something you'll want to consider while cutting down to 60.

That being said, I wouldn't run more than 2 of any of your combo pieces. -2-3x Phyrexian Unlife, -2-3x Solemnity, -3x Worship.

Leyline of Sanctity is a sideboard card. I'd remove all 4 from the main deck and add them to the side board.

What's Troll Ascetic doing for you? Just a hard to remove creature for Worship? Probably not worth running any tbh. Speaking of creatures, I'd drop -2x Courser of Kruphix and -2-4x Herald of the Pantheon. Herald seems good, but Arbor Elf+Utopia Sprawl is such a good mana engine, he just isn't necessary. I'd also consider adding in 2x Mesa Enchantress to ensure you get your draw as consistently as possible.

Since you're running 4x Idyllic Tutors, you only need 1x of each of your win-cons. -1x Starfield of Nyx, +1x Luminarch Ascension. I'd also consider a single Authority of the Consuls, as it can help against aggro and the passive life gain can help quite a bit. Good tool to have available for tutoring. 1x Heliod, God of the Sun is a pretty solid win-con, as it's ability can help you fill your hand while giving blockers/attackers. She comes online as a creature quite reliably in this type of deck as well.
