Crook of Condemnation Discussion

If you need ideas on cuts, I have a few:

Dark Ritual is usually worse than ramp or a rock- notably Gemhide Sliver / Manaweft Sliver .

Most of your creatures feel like goodstuff. Maybe that's the point, but, in agreement with most of the fellows here, I think slivers would suit you better.

Crook of Condemnation < Relic of Progenitus

Venser's Journal seems an odd choice. Does this deck usually draw a lot of cards?

Legion's Landing  Flip is bulk. Like it's fine but 0 synergy with the rest of the deck. Same for... all of your sorceries except the two wraths and Torment of Hailfire , which I'm assuming is a finisher.

Its good that you are starting with making a deck based off a precon. Some of my best decks are based of Standard Finals Decks. Its one of the best ways to really get going. That doesn't mean, however, that you are always right and that I'm not going to give some advice.

While some cards are used in Standard against some matchups, when you play Modern, you have access to a much larger pool of cards. With this in mind cards like Cast Out and Harsh Mentor aren't really viable in Modern. Path to Exile is better than Cast Out in pretty much everyway, whereas there are better options for hate than Harsh Mentor .

Lightning Bolt is better than Lightning Strike . Period.(unless budget reasons)

If you are looking for some anti-graveyard cards, I'd suggest Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of the Void , Relic of Progenitus , Rest in Peace or Nihil Spellbomb . Any of those are better than Crook of Condemnation in their own way.

There are also some cards that just don't seem to fit. Why do you run Celestial Dawn ? Is mana fixing really that much of a problem for this deck? I just don't see it. And how much does Cultivator's Caravan really help? I mean, you just spent 3 mana and at least 3 power on a mana dork who is admittedly a 5/5, but still. I would look at maybe Smuggler's Copter just for the cheaper price and the ability to refill your hand.

All in all, pretty impressive for your first even Mtg deck. +1 from me.

I suggest you add some graveyard hate in case your opponents have a way to recur back their cards (Living Death, Scrap Mastery, Sun Titan, etc.), like Crook of Condemnation, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb or Leyline of the Void (if you have the $$$). You already have Bojuka Bog, so nice choice :). I love the Whip of Erebos and Phyrexian Reclamation to get back my own creatures and some instants or sorceries put them back directly (one-time only though): Cauldron Dance, Torrent of Souls, Rise from the Grave. Beacon of Unrest is very nice and versatile. If you have the budget, Sheoldred, Whispering One is very effective and Goryo's Vengeance can be useful. Shallow Grave, Animate Dead and Necromancy are other options too. For mass-reanimation, use Rise of the Dark Realms, Liliana Vess or Liliana, Death Wielder. If you like the discard theme, pretty much all specters have an ability related to that, but of course they aren't of the tribes you want with your commander. Also, if you play black, I think tutors are a must, because they are the best in the game since only Beseech the Queen reveals the tutored card in black (well, I think so). So Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition and the good old budget Diabolic Tutor are among options.

So, I playtested, and on Turn 14, I milled the opponent. Does that sound above, below, or about, average for this deck? That is assuming they don't mess with my hand or counter any of my spells. Against a black or Black/Green deck this could go faster, because they mill themselves too. If you ever make a sideboard, I would recommend a Crook of Condemnation or something to that effect, to keep people from bringing cards back after you have milled them.

Cyclonic Rift can be annoying, but it's not a complete gut punch. Everything's back in the hand, not destroyed. If it's being cast to slow you down and not secure a win, you should have an opportunity to rebuild.

There are also a few cards that are effective at keeping Blue Mages at bay:

-

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a Graveyard deck. Applying some Grave-hate will put a stranglehold on her entire gameplan:

Hey there !

Guttersnipe won't have a lot of value, there is too little instant/sorcery imo. ( and not a lot of cheap one )

Crook of Condemnation is not standard legal anymore ! You can play Sentinel Totem if you need an artifact cheap way to deal with graveyard.

Cybersix this such good feedback thankyou so much!

yeah Raking Canopy is a bit lackluster in retrospect think I'll switch it for Cryptolith Rite

also your assessment on gy hate is right on and I'll try to get a few in like Bojuka Bog, and Crook of Condemnation

also I agree I need at least one means of reanimation

lots of food for thought and appreciate your insight :D

Ok, i have a couple issues with this deck:

1: Its a Stuffy Doll deck. How can you NOT have Pariah. Just, how? It's practically a crime. Also Pariah's Shield. Just put in a couple more indestructible like Darksteel Myr any you'll be completely free from damage.

2: Dead cards. Without guardian combo, all Altar of the Brood actually does is fill up the moldrotha player's graveyard a bit and make your Immortal Coil and Lich's Mastery worse. Maybe consider a different payoff, such as Genesis Chamber or Soul Warden, as they are not dead draws without the guardian, as you're getting lots of ETBs of nontoken creatures from all your flickering. Also, Leveler and Timesifter. Why? You don't have tremendously many high CMC spells, and leveler is an ETB: you can't gift the lack of library to someone.

3: You have very little synergy with her uptick. There is only a couple miracle spells and only 2 fetches. Consider putting in some of the panoramas (card link example: Jund Panorama. Remember that they can be put in Esper decks cos no colour identity) or if your fine with spending a couple bucks, some fetch lands, Myriad Landscape, or anything of that kidney

4: Throw in a couple more graveyard hate cards. Nihil Spellbomb, Crook of Condemnation or Relic of Progenitus are a couple neat examples.

5: Eerie Interlude + commander ultimate = profit. Also Flickerwisp, Long Road Home, etc. And Eldrazi Displacer. You have a bunch of colourless lands, and if you throw in a couple mana rocks (which u should probably do btw. You only have swol ring :P ) and you'll have all the colourless mana you need.
