Enchant creature with another Aura attached to it
Enchanted creature gets +3/+3 and has first strike, vigilance, and lifelink. (Whenever it deals damage, its controller gains that much life.)
That primer is awesome and Daybreak Coronet is deffinatley going to be the first upgrade for this deck, but at over $20 each, thats just crazy.
Darkonite: That's a great card. When the deck rotates from Standard I will certainly consider it, along with Boros Swiftblade and Scourge of the Nobilis . I'm actually excited to explore a Modern build of the deck using the same theme. Daybreak Coronet is also spectacular.
I only play modern, so I'm pretty experienced with it and I personally love helping people improve decks. I find it enjoyable, especially when I start making custom versions that I may consider playing.
Speaking of which:
I put that together and did a few test games. I found Favor of the Overbeing after a bit of searching and figured it would be at least a decent budget replacement for Daybreak Coronet in combination with your bogle.
In my test games, it seemed to do ok. If your FNM is even close to as competitive as my Thursday and Wednesday tournaments, then it's hard to say how well you will do. But if it's just a little competitive, you should be ok.
Feel free to plagiarize the deck I put together, it works so I'm sure you would be happy with it. But otherwise, just putting together whatever brew you like will probably be fine too. Just be careful, modern is a format where every decision matters way more than you think it does. In particular, you should watch out for storm decks, they will end you if you don't know how to play against them.
yea Daybreak Coronet is just way out of my price range right now bc I'm just getting into modern. You should make a sideboard for this too!
the Daybreak Coronet seems out of place, though i can see how fun it would be to throw on a creature you control magic. things like Acquire , Gather Specimens , and Bribery could do well if that's the theme you want. I'd encourage you to find a niche of control to make the deck more random or haphazard than just outright superfriends, but that's purely my opinion. in terms of control versatility and reusability are the golden standards. things like Snapcaster Mage and Eternal Witness can help immensely with recovering spells. Forbid is probably my favorite counterspell in the format. Hinder , Bant Charm , Spell Crumple , and Spin into Myth can all deny access to a general for an entire game, with charm coming out on top imo for versatility and top deck potential. i have a Bant control, Ramp, Reuse, Wreck that i've been working on for years that you might find interesting.
Here's the issue. This is an established decklist... it's been done before and with great success (even though it's usually just a successful meta call). Your idea is good, but the cards that make the deck successful are MIA. Frankly, if you're casting bear umbra on turn four there's a decent chance that you're losing the game. I get that you're trying to make it a little more durable, but auras is really a hyper aggressive aggro deck rather than midrange because of the fact that a decent number of your opponent's decks are more than able to either lock you out of what you're doing with an established mana base (counterspells, edicts and spellskite are your main perps here) or just go over your head and kill you turn 4 regardless of what you're sitting on for counters.
Also, I like invisible stalker as a card, but in a fast format, adding that blue is really just going to further disrupt your already depleted mana base, which is why you stick to casting 1 and 2 cmc spells, except maybe 2 Unflinching Courage .
That being said, the most bang for your buck is going to look something like this:
Kor Spiritdancer , Gladecover Scout , Slippery Bogle , Noble Hierarch (your creatures will be attacking alone) and probably a single worst case scenario or sacrificial Dryad Arbor . If you must have a creature like invisible stalker, I suggest Silhana Ledgewalker instead of splashing for blue.
2, maybe 3 path to exile.
Ethereal Armor and Daybreak Coronet are both on my list of potentials. I'll see what the deck looks like when they are in. In my opinion Rancor doesn't care if it's carrier makes it through alive, only in dealing damage. And Slippery Bogle has been on my mind but I'm thinking Invisible Stalker instead.
