Crook of Condemnation Discussion

Update 9-1-2019:

Out: Crook of Condemnation <->In: Oketra the True

I am attempting to up the creature count, and I don’t play in a graveyard heavy meta. Plus, I acquired Oketra the True ’s Masterpiece Card, and am therefore legally required to jam it in here.

Reforge the Soul seems random. As do Prismatic Strands and Purify the Grave . If you're worried about Graveyard shenanigans just play Relic of Progenitus or Crook of Condemnation

I'd probably play Song of the Dryads over Darksteel Mutation

Might also consider some landwalk in lieu of relying on Shadow/Hormanship so much. Trailblazer's Boots for example.

I'd also probably play with Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves , so you can still target/equip stuff to it.

You have a pretty good selection of soft removal--is Bontu's Last Reckoning doing anything special? I'd consider that more of a sideboard card for this deck. Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts seems counterproductive with your enchantments, in addition to skewing the mana curve. The Ghostly Prison in your maybeboard I think would help more, if you have the budget for it.

You have a lot of graveyard removal ( Bojuka Bog , Scavenger Grounds , and Crook of Condemnation ), and most of that can be moved to sideboard (or removed as too much redundancy) as well, unless there's a lot of graveyard decks running rampant around your area. I also recommend Tormod's Crypt or Nihil Spellbomb over Crook of Condemnation .

Add in some more extort cards, maybe something like Utter End or Anguished Unmaking for noncreature removal, and this should shape up nicely.

Fair enough. What about Scuttling Doom Engine or something with a little graveyard hate like Silent Gravestone or Crook of Condemnation ?

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.
