Thank you so much for the help JKRice. I've actually not really looked at this deck in a while, and definitely see some improvements I can make.

Your advice on the mana base is very appreciated, and I can definitely afford on improving it over a period of time, but I will probably upgrade it on here all at once. I am thinking using four of the on-color fetches, as well as the fast lands and shock lands.

As for tutors, I plan on cutting Diabolic Tutor for obvious reasons, and will probably drop to two copies of Beseech the Queen. I think faithless looting does a very good job here, and I could consider adding a Liliana of the Veil to the mainboard instead of either a Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt, and likely a Chromatic Sphere as well. I have tested a Bitter Ordeal in the mainboard, and it did not feel extraordinarily important, as few decks in my meta run anything that would make me feel like Grapeshot is not the better choice here.

As for the sideboard, Damnation is very expensive, and while I own one, I think that a more budget option like Languish could work better for duplicate copies, at least until I can afford more. I will probably run Fulminator Mage over a few copies of Crumble to Dust, and might eventually look in to a few copies of Engineered Explosives.

Once again, many thanks, I really appreciate it.

This is one of my favorite modern combos, and I can definitely help you with the manabase and sideboard and possibly the mainboard if you’re willing to change it.

1) The Manabase

I’m not sure how much you’re willing to spend on the manabase, but in the modern format the mana is usually the most expensive part of the deck. I will give you budget and nonbudget options. Obviously don’t take all of these suggestions because then you would have maybe 40 lands

A: Fetchlands

These cost between 20-50 dollars. For your deck, if your willing to spend that much, I would reccomend 4 Bloodstained Mire and 2 Polluted Delta. These allow you to selectively get lands depending on what colors of mana you need. These also allow you to pull lands from your deck, decreasing the chance that you whiff on a draw.

B: Shocklands

These cost between 8-30 dollars, and allow you to pay life to fix mana, and the land types mean that they are best when paired with the fetchlands. I would reccomend 4 Blood Crypt

C: Check lands

These cost between 3-10 dollars, and allow you to fix your mana a turn late. These are a decent budget option. I would reccomend 4 Dragonskull Summit.

D: Fast Lands

These are between 5-25 dollars, and are your best option behind the fetchlands. I would recommend 3 Blackcleave Cliffs

You already have the lain land in your mainbaord so I won’t discuss that.

2) The Sideboard

You should probably vary the sideboard a bit. The sideboard is meant to give you the most variety in answering the opponent’s strategy and protecting yours, so I would say you only want to run 1-2 of each card.

A: Engineered Explosives is an amazing card in a variety of matchups, but it’s definitely not budget. If you can afford it, I would say run one of them in the SB.

B: Fulminator Mage is a great card against power decks like Tron and scapeshift, and have the added effect of messing with multi color decks like jund. I would reccomend 2.

C: Damnation is amazing as a hate card against humans, which is a very prominent deck in the meta. I would run 1.

D: the Relic of Progenituss, Shattering Sprees, and Crumble to Dusts are all great, but I would cut them down to 2 each.

3) The Mainboard

A: Bitter Ordeal is an amazing card in the mainboard. I would reccomend that you run 1 grapeshot and 1 ordeal in the mainboard TK give you variety against decks that have responses to either.

B: There are better ways to get the combo to your hand than Beseech the Queen and Diabolic Tutor. These just come off too late and won’t do much in control matchups or combo matchups. Instead, I would run multi-Use dig spells like Faithless Looting, or else you could possible run midrangey control spells like Liliana of the Veil or Liliana, the Last Hope.

Hey man, I absolutely love this deck. The modern deck I'm using now is pretty similar to this, but a bit more on the spell-slinging side. However, I feel like it wants to have more creatures and grow more mid-rangey, and I'm not sure how to tune it in that direction. Would you mind taking a look and letting me know if you have any recommendations? It looks like you know what you're playing a lot better than I do.

Also; I would recommend Alpine Moon over Crumble to Dust. 1 CMC is a lot nicer than 4.

The slate is almost ready... I just want to know which is good out of the following, & which is bad, as well as whether or not Pristine Angel + Concerted Effort + Empty-Shrine Kannushi/Pledge of Loyalty is a legitamite combo that works, & can even deal with Multicolor, & Creature Types regardless of Color.

List: *Gisela, the Broken Blade/Bruna, the Fading Light

*Conduit of Storms  Flip

*Extricator of Sin  Flip

*Hanweir Battlements/Hanweir Garrison

*Lone Rider  Flip

*Smoldering Werewolf  Flip

*Maw of Kozilek

*Molten Nursery

*Nettle Drone

*Processor Assault

*Reality Hemorrhage

*Serpentine Spike

*Touch of the Void

*Turn Against

*Vestige of Emrakul

*Vile Aggregate

Which of these do you recommend? I'm adding my last adds before shaving off whole KGs off this deck...

Here are the cards I found that are in such a color:

*Gisela, the Broken Blade/Bruna, the Fading Light

*Hanweir Battlements/Hanweir Garrison

*Conduit of Storms  Flip

*Extricator of Sin  Flip

*Lone Rider  Flip

*Smoldering Werewolf  Flip

*Processor Assault

*Reality Hemorrhage (Possible Sunforger Package add?)

*Serpentine Spike

*Touch of the Void

*Turn Against

*Vestige of Emrakul

*Vile Aggregate

Which do you think would be good for my Boros Deck? Also I omitted Eldrazi Displacer as it is a standard for this deck anyway.

Also, one last question, Since my Kozilek Deck is doing nothing but fail the meter, do you think I should run a 5Color Commander, & if so, what?

Crumble to Dust seems strictly better than Sowing Salt. One less red mana requirement can matter.

Blood Moon has been on my attain-ASAP-board since day one of this build. I think until I can improve upon my land base, it will have to remain there. I've faced tron many times, and besides G/R tron, I've never felt fear. When the proper responses are retained and planned for, saying no becomes kinda straight forward. Humans and U/w control are where I really find the struggle and find myself wishing for a blood moon. But until I can fetch out Islands reliably, I can't see it not destroying my own board state as well.

My early game attempts at land hate Blood Sun, Alpine Moon, and some others never turned very fruitful. With some basic testing(not yet fielded mind you) Crumble to Dust has had some pretty serious effects. I hope it can help me "limp" by for now.

Thank you so much for the upvote! This deck means a lot to me and I am always working hard to improve it!

StoryArcher,
First, the deck looks really fun. A few thoughts though, in no particular order:

  • Land Destruction is not a wincon. If it's working for you, that's awesome. But I worry that 1x Thrun, 1x Nissa, and 1x Strombreath may not be enough to actually close out the game.
  • Your mana- and dork-base would benefit a little from -3x Forest, -1x Birds of Paradise, +3x Green Fetchlands (Windswept Heath are the least expensive, but any of them are fine). Because the Fetches allow us to grab Stomping Ground as well, they give us a slightly better chance of getting the 2R we need to cast Blood Moon on Turn 2, which would allow you to drop a Bird for something better in the late game. Here's a piece on our Ponza Mana Simulator if you'd like to play with the numbers yourself.
  • I like Ancient Grudge better than Artifact sweepers, personally. But if your meta demands sweepers, Shatterstorm is strictly better than Creeping Corrosion.
  • Unless your meta is just overrun with Tron and Titanshift, 4x Crumble to Dust may be excessive. Surgical Extraction is another similar(ish) option, which is great in other match-ups as well.

Also, I TOTALLY get the desire to make a deck competitive "without necessarily carbon copying someone else's card list", but I always recommend starting with other lists and then tweaking (sometimes drastically) to fit our meta and playstyle. If you haven't already, I'd strongly recommend looking at these:

Good luck (and good skill) with the deck!
