Dark Ritual is awesome, let's you get a turn 1 Yahenni. Also Forbidden Orchard could be fun in that you can forcefeed your opponents creatures to sacrifice if they don't have any. And you seem to have enough ways to plow through tokens.

Goblin Guide can replace Vexing Devil as well as Fatal Push could replace Shard Volley. Dark Ritual is sadly not legal in modern. Perhaps you could consider Blood Crypt and Bloodstained Mire for more accessible colors. Some good cards in your colors are Terminate, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and the 3 CMC Lilianas.

I can see that you are running with some midrange haste cards, so your mana may have to change to cope with faster creatures such as the ones with dash. I recommend the card Weirding Wood, as it provides any two mana, and is only 3 mana to get out in the first place. Otherwise i reccommend Dark Ritual for some quick cheap mana as a surprise. For example, you have 2 Swamps left over, and its your opponents turn, you have no creatures out and they're gonna get a cheap shot on you with their super powerful 2/2 creature, and they think you cant defend yourself. You quickly whip out dark ritual and then play something such as Alesha's Vanguard and ruin their plans.

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.

Okay, so first off, get rid of Sol Ring, scrub. Secondly, some potentially good fast mana sources would be Songs of the Damned, Cabal Ritual, Dark Ritual, and/or Culling the Weak.

Now on to the real meat:

Perpetual Timepiece, Elixir of Immortality, Primal Command, Piper's Melody (and friends)

These are good for grabbing your GY so you don't mill yourself out or to protect yourself from enemy Bojuka Bogs and such.

Combo 1:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo

  • Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
  • Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
  • Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.

Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.

Combo 2:

Necrotic Ooze Combo

Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.

Combo 3:

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo

This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.

  • Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
  • In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
  • Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.

This gets around player Hexproof and graveyard hate, so you don't have to worry about things like Leyline of Sanctity and Leyline of the Void with this combo, unlike the other two.

Combo 4:

Colorless Mana Combo

  • Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
  • Play Nim Deathmantle.
  • Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
  • Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
  • Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens

Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

Do you mean Lotus Bloom? That was the one we discussed and I chose to test with LED. FYI, I ordered LED and received it, that tells you how well it works.

Speaking of Lotus Petal, I am considering to add Dark Ritual for mana ramp, and can be tutored with Mystical Tutor which has very few targets, that's probably my next testing targets.

Depends if you want to make it modern legal or keep it casual. Some of the cards in here at the moment like mind's desire, snap, and temporal fissure aren't modern legal so they would have to be among the cuts. I'm going to talk about modern but if you're not picky about formats, i can talk about cards not in modern as well.

In general though if you up the amount of ways to make spells cheaper like Goblin Electromancer and Baral, Chief of Compliance, your rituals like Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual and even Manamorphose nets you mana. You are also going to want a fair number of cantrips like Sleight of Hand and Serum Visions to keep the chain going. Once you fill up your graveyard you can cast Past in Flames to do it again and end the chain with Empty the Warrens or Grapeshot. (some decks run gifts ungiven so they can take past in flames and say, would you rather i cast this from my hand or graveyard?)

I've seen a couple categories of modern storm but there is a lot of overlap between them. One uses a combination of Thought Scour and Pyromancer Ascension which is pretty nice.

Here's a sample modern storm list (just know that Gitaxian Probe has been since banned in modern)

http://www.channelfireball.com/articles/taking-modern-by-storm/

(storm is stronger in eternal formats like legacy and vintage where you have acess to cards like Dark Ritual and Tendrils of Agony. I can talk more about what those sorts of decks look like if you want but for now i'd stick to modern or casual since legacy/vintage are super expensive/fast paced)

greyninja on Do you have any "pet" ...

6 days ago

When I got back into the game ~5 years ago, I'd say my pet card was Engulfing Slagwurm. I'd jam a bunch of the big wurms in with mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Fyndhorn Elder, Greenweaver Druid, etc. I also loved Terra Stomper lol

Other pet cards when I was playing casual 60 card decks were Dark Ritual and Counterspell. I own like 20 of each now :P

These days I'm pretty much only playing edh. I like Bloodgift Demon as a budget evasive beater with card draw. Consecrated Sphinx is in 4/8 of my edh decks. Definitely one of my top favorite at the moment. The other decks don't run blue lol

McDeity on Need help cutting cards please!

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:

-Child of Night

-Pulse Tracker

-Vampire Outcasts

-Vampire Cutthroat

-Vengeful Vampire

-Archetype of Finality

-Bad Moon

-Cabal Ritual

-Dark Ritual

-Sorin's Thirst

-Tyrant's Choice

Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.
