Commander / EDH* Senko-San-1


P.S. Entari0 there isn't much would say to add into or make your deck better but, I think you should add in Dark Depths for the Thespian's Stage for your "ALL IS SACRIFICE EDH"

Hi abby315!

Elvish Reclaimer is just a great spell, and it synergizes perfectly with a lot of mechanics and cards in the deck. Thanks for reminding me about it!

Dark Depths - love this card, but I think this spell would be perfect if we had access to black or white, so far, after a few tests, I am quite satisfied with Field of the Dead. Dozens of zombies can be created with this land in no time.

There's the classic Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage

(Use thespian stage to copy dark depths, keep the thespian stage copy due to the legendary rule. It doesn't enter the battlefield this way, so it has no counters, and you immediately sacrifice it for a 20/20 indestructible Marit Lage token.)

shadow63 The Umezawa's Jittes were next on my cut list. Dark Depths is kind of a slow payoff, though, especially without Krark-Clan Ironworks. I'll make the switch and see how it feels.

Back when Extended was a competitive format Dark Depths got added to a deck called ROFLThopter. It was a control shell built Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek and it dominated the Extended format in 2010.

Then, people added Dark Depths + Vampire Hexmage and it just became totally oppressive. Adding in Thespian's Stage and any other goodies in the current Modern card pool and I am guessing it would dominate events again.

Only needing lands and/or 2 total mana in play to win makes an extremely fast clock to race against. Combine it with disruption and counterspells and you have a very strong package that is very hard to stop.

But there is a lot of fast aggro in the current Modern environment so you never know.

Here is a little wiki i found talking about them briefly: ROFLThopter & Thopter Depths

I do think Dark Depths may actually be reasonable to introduce in to modern. Specifically, because key tutors like Crop Rotation and Gamble wouldn't be in modern with it. My biggest concern would probably be Expedition Map. I'm not sure that those two cards coexisting in modern would be TOO bad, but there would be a LOT of angry tron players if Dark Depths snuck in to modern and expedition map later paid the price for it

Considering the current modern meta's obsession with lands, I realized I do not see any reason for Dark Depths to be banned. Interaction in modern is on a steady decline and a turn 3-4 win seems more merciful than punishing. What arguments exist against unbanning depths? I ported turbo depths to modern as a thought experiment which can be found here: what if modern had depths?
