Darkslick Shores Discussion

I would like to see some Darkslick Shores is here, since you play U/B one-drops.

So on a whim I tried

Main Board

-3 Opt -1 Darkslick Shores -2 Inquisition of Kozilek

+2 Dispel +2 Remand +1 Serum Visions +1 Thought Scour


-2 Sorin, Solemn Visitor +1 Ceremonious Rejection +1 Zealous Persecution

Played a match again GB Tron and Ad Naus and won both. Not a flawless victory by any means, but I still felt relatively in control both matches.

And holy cow is Monastery Mentor explosive.

I want to add Logic Knot but I feel going down to 1 or none on the Delve top end makes me to threat-liight in an already threat-light deck. Will switch to Tasigur, the Golden Fang though. Maybe switch the top end with Seeker of the Way or Niblis of Frost

Had a rough time with Mardu Pyromancer. Considering taking the Opts out because they just didn't feel right when playing them. Thinking of -3 Opt and -1 Darkslick Shores, then go up to 4 Serum Visions and 4 Thoughtscour and add 2 Dispel

Lastly, I know it'll make it more threat light, but maybe switch out the Gurmag Angler (1 or Both) with Logic Knot.

Hey! I've been on a budget my whole life so I maybe able to offer some help!

With your budget in mind I would replace the 4 Glimmervoid with 4 City of Brass. Adding another "pain land" may cause you some slight issues in some matchups but this change will save you about $48. You could also consider some combination of other pain lands such as Llanowar Wastes and Underground River which I've seen a couple lantern list before Spire of Industry was printed. Those extra pain lands could replace Darkslick Shores which is a pricy card now. Also, to offset some of the life loss you could also add another copy of Inventors' Fair which would also give you access to another tutor.

Also some budget considerations that might help without modifying the decklist include buying lightly played or moderately played cards instead of near mint copies. I do this myself and it quickly adds up to big savings. Also, you could wait to buy cards when they are marked down, SCG does different sales every week and you maybe able to find the cards you need for a bit cheaper. Also, look for promotions by companies. I know that channelfireball is currently offering $25 store credit when you spend over $100. You can find the promo code on the homepage of their website.

The suggested changes and some careful shopping should get you within your spending budget. I hope I've offered some helpful advice. Good luck and happy building!

I'll definitely consider Vector Asp however I'm not sure spreading the blue mana so thin will be worth it, might be able to sub some islands for BU shock lands and swap out Plague Myr for the vector asps but even then it's depending on that black mana coming through. What do you guys think of - 4 Plague Myr - 8 Island +4 Darkslick Shores +4 Watery Grave ? I could also then open up a lot of potential black spells in the main board.

Backinthefrey I appreciate your advice, in fact i decided to add 1x of Mind Funeral and it works well! But i think that Manic Scribe is a really strong card, i will be happy if my opponent waste a Lightning Bolt on my Manic Scribe instead of my face. She is a good blocker too, versus burn she can for example block Goblin Guide. I know i have a lot of 2 drops and not many 3 drop, but at turn 3 I can play for example, a 1 drop and a 2 drop. For example: TURN 1: Darkslick Shores and Hedron Crab TURN 2: land and Manic Scribe or another 2 drop like Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mesmeric Orb) TURN 3: land, a 2 drop and a removal like Fatal Push, an Inquisition of Kozilek or a Thought Scour. I can also play an Ensnaring Bridge or the Mind Funeral.

Let me know what you think about this :)

Mox Opal seems really out of place here... you don't need that much mana fixing with a two color deck like this plus it's sitting comfortably around $400 for a playset. If you're willing to spend that much money I would just build a traditional affinity deck for a bit more moolah. I feel like if you want to have a moderate budget, this deck could do really well with Tezzeret the Schemer to function as your mana ramp and fixing (you could also drop Darkslick Shores). That being said if money isn't a problem look into dimir affinity decks, there's a lot of really powerful, really expensive cards that could spice up an improvise deck like this. Hope this helps! Let me know what you end up deciding on.

sylvannos on Blue Tron into legacy suggestions

1 month ago

The thing about Legacy is that it has Wasteland (44% of Legacy decks use it), meaning Tron is unplayable. You're also going to run into problems of playing a blue deck without Force of Will.

The obvious solution would be to play MUD, Eldrazi, or Sea Stompy, but you're on a budget and those decks want City of Traitors.

What other Modern decks do you have? I see you have Eldrazi decks in your profile, these might be doable without City of Traitors and you can load up on Ghost Quarters instead of Wasteland.

You might also consider playing Burn, since it's actually cheaper to build in Legacy than it is in Modern. Mono-Black Reanimator is another choice if you have some Entombs lying around.

Helm of Obedience combo can also be built on a budget if you have a bunch of Modern cards already. Leyline of the Void, Darkslick Shores, and Rest in Peace are its expensive cards. The rest of it is $1 rares.

The issue is "budget" in Legacy means ~$100. There's even more options if your budget is $200~$300. Remember, Legacy is normally a $3,000 format. $25 is what people spend on individual sideboard cards.
