Crucible of Worlds Discussion
1 day ago
Sorry, somehow I managed to take this list off private. It's still being brewed but it is indeed more budget, hence no Crucible of Worlds, Bazaar of Baghdad, Lion's Eye Diamond and other better lands.
It's pretty much straight up infinite mana Exsanguinate combo using the Frog + Skirge Familiar + Discard outlet and/or Dakmor Salvage/dredge. However, there are two back up plans should those pieces get exiled along with Riftsweeper. Those being: Necrotic Ooze with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord/Devoted Druid/Quillspike in the GY (or battlefield) and infinite mana with Geth's Verdict in a 3 card library (to make it faster).
I will be updating the description once I'm happy with it. I recently added more mana dorks in lieu of fluff like Rampaging Baloths, Avenger of Zendikar, Worm Harvest. I found that if I focused more on the combo aspect that those sorts of things aren't needed. It also lowered the curve quite nicely.

Like I haven't built the deck and played it yet because I am just wanting a tad more feedback on what I should potentially add or take out before I truly build it to make it as good as I possibly can however Jolrael, Empress of Beasts turns lands into creatures so my main path is to ramp like a madman (hence the above average land count for the deck), I turns all my lands (or opponents) into 3/3 creatures so not only can I get mana quick but also creatures. The problem comes in with the discard 2 cards to do it however with enough draw and things like Crucible of Worlds, Groundskeeper, and Splendid Reclamation I can just ditch lands which aren't exactly a major loss of resources for this deck (I honestly could put Centaur Vinecrasher since he's pure jank with that strategy). Also because I have a lot of lands I can go another route with doubling, tripling, or quadrupling as well as untapping and retapping my mana and using Omnath, Locus of Mana and/or Helix Pinnacle as alt-wincons.
Other fun jank is leaving mana open to hose the boardwipes or even to Powder Keg someone's lands with Jolrael, Empress of Beasts or to a small extent Kamahl, Fist of Krosa which I can use things like Eternal Witness and Nissa, Vital Force to return it back.

I would love to have Timetwister. Unfortunately, I have run out of extra kidneys to sell. Lol. Maybe in a couple of years.
As for Paradox Engine, I am not running it as a combo piece but as an enabler. It isn't essential but it helps me out a lot. I agree that an additional tutor might be more helpful but the only reasonable tutors left for me to add are out of my budget at the moment.
The Time Reversal combo with Walking Ballista is nice but I really think it is clunky especially without Ad Nauseam. I have not been able to use it since my playgroup has a couple of aggro decks that bring my life total down considerably low before I am able to combo off.
Infinite mana also won't be of much use to me. I think it would be better suited in my Oona deck or in Lilbrudder's Thraisos.
Lastly, Crucible of Worlds was taken out because it seemed underpowered to me without cards like Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Exploration. I am thinking of bringing it back in along with Squandered Resources but that would mean taking out Paradox Engine.
I'm not sure if you guys notice that I hate being on the defensive. It is for this reason I have no removal in the deck. I like going all in and win games at breakneck speed if possible.

I think that Paradox Engine is too weak here without a way to cheat it out (given that it's a 5-drop that gives you conditional mana). I understand the combo, but I'd honestly rather just put in another tutor to find Helm of Awakening.
Final suggestion: Just play Lilbrudder's list, it's inevitable ;)

This is a nice deck, but I would suggest using more nonbasic lands to shore up your mana base. Fetch lands, such as Polluted Delta, would work great with Crucible of Worlds. Also, some targeted creature removal would be good, such as Fatal Push, Smother, or Go for the Throat, allowing you to kill any early threats. And Treasure Cruise is not Modern legal.

How come you aren't running Command Beacon? getting HoG to your had late game and casting it for 1 gives you so much advantage.
Also, if you had the money, you could combo it with Crucible of Worlds, so HoG could always cost 1, or for the most part, always cost one. also allows you more flexibility with dust bowl.

Valdr la pena tener las check lands? La consistencia en las tierras es an muy sensible en estos mazos. Quizs reemplazarlas en alguna medida por bsicas sea mejor. El mazo est harto ms cargado al azul. Tener ms islas para fetchear (considerando el nmero de fetchlands y Crucible of Worlds) parece razonable.Considerando que el mazo es Voltron, no convendr ms usar Blood Mist en su lugar? No creo que ests considerando el double strike como algo defensivo en un mazo aggro, como para encontrarle valor ms all del combate de tu turno.
