Declaration in Stone Discussion

Personally, I prefer Detention Sphere to Declaration in Stone. Yes, Detention Sphere costs more to cast, and yes, your enemy receives their card(s) back if Detention Sphere is removed, but I personally think those downsides more than make up for not being able to target any permanent and giving your opponent card advantage.

Also, it would be UW Spirits, not BW Spirits.

I like Oblivion Ring and Declaration in Stone a lot--that would shore up situations that Path is weak against. As far as the colorless mana goes I put 1-of's of Underground River Adarkar Wastes and Caves of Koilos to give extra sources without messing up how often I need specific colors of mana--from what I have playtested so far between those and the 4 Eldrazi Temple it's pretty rare to get to the point I need to start flickering with Displacer and not have the colorless, but I do like the idea of the Deserts for the extra utility they provide.

You could try Declaration in Stone or Flaying Tendrils in the sideboard for a sweeper. Maybe Oblivion Ring or Cast Out for removal or cards like that (enchantments that exile)

Overall Record

Games 0 - 3 - 1

Matches 0 - 1 - 1

Match 1 - Loss - Dredge

Never played against this deck before. It was a good learning experience. It's hard for me to play great graveyard hate because it destroys my 3 main engines. Maybe I need to find and consider playing a worse one sided hate. But the other good thing against it will be more exile effects. Both Settle the Wreckage and Declaration in Stone would have been helpful. I think the Black version might be better with more exile effects.

Match 2 - Loss - Faeries

Also first time playing Faeries. The first game was bad. I mulliganed and then had 2 Squadron Hawk in my hand. That doesn't work. The second game went really long and he stopped me from winning on three turns in a row with a Cryptic Command. Control opponents have not been good for me. :(


This was on a crazy Friday night at Forgotten Path Games. They have several tournaments going at one time.

Overall Record

Games 6 - 5

Matches 2 - 2

Match 1 - Win - Merfolk

The Modern non budget version of Merfolk. It was pretty scary most of the time. I needed to both gain life to stay alive and draw into Day of Judgment because the fish could get real big with all the lords. I took a hit for 45 damage in game 2 and eventually won with two sweepers. Both wins I was only a handful of life away from losing.

Match 2 - Win - Goblins

Woah... Another creature strat. But Goblins is a full on wide plan with less lords than Merfolk. This game was a bit easier without Aether Vial on the other to help them rebuild after my Wrath's.

Match 3 - Loss - Kiki

Introducing - The new Splinter Twin Combo that cost 5 mana instead or 4 - Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Game 1 I lost to the combo. Game 2 I won with Nevermore on Kiki and a second copy on Pestermite. Then proceeded to beat down. Game 3 I lost on the last turn of extra turns to the combo. I could have tied the match. I was holding my Path to Exile to use on Kiki instead of the Deceiver Exarch or the Pestermite on the battlefield, and mistakenly used Declaration in Stone on the double Snapcaster Mages. If I had removed the two combo creatures already on the battlefield, he would not have had enough mana to both play Kiki and a untapper on the same turn and win.

TLDR - Remove Combo creatures as soon as possible.

Match 4 - Loss - Esper Ojutai

Lost to Kevin again with the Dragonlord Ojutai. I did win the first game when my Proclamation of Rebirth engine came online. But the 2 next games I just had nothing. Never drew a Martyr. I've lost a lot to this deck but I feel like I've never really had the good draws against it so I'm not discouraged. I proved I can win some games at least.


Huge Crowd this week with 16 people. All kinds of decks. It was awesome.

Games 4 - 5

Matches 2 - 2

It didn't go well but this was a small sample size. One thing I need to remember is Emeria, The Sky Ruin can bring back any card not just one drops.

Match 1 - Win - Merfolk

This was a Green-Blue version with additional cards from Ixalan. I won pretty easy with the extra life from Martyr and the Wrath of Gods. I had one each game, and let him overextend himself and then cleared the board.

Match 2 - Loss - Abzan

AHHH. These games were grindy and super slow. I was all setup to go eternal Martyr and then he plays a maindeck Scavenging Ooze. I found a Path to Exile but Daniel found a second Scavenging Ooze and then I was done. In the second game we went to time. I went from 20 life to 44 and back down to 24 and just couldn't win through 8 Lingering Souls chump blockers. I didn't find the Declaration in Stone

Match 3 - Loss - Blue Tron

In game one I didn't have any mana and Sundering Titan destroyed all my lands. One when it came in to the battlefield, one when I exiled it with Banishing Light and then another land on the next turn when he used Repeal. The second game I had more lands and was destroying his Tron pieces but none of my threats could stick on the field with his counter spells.

Match 4 - Win - UW Prowess

Wrath of God wins this match. When I can gain big chunks of life and clear his creatures I wasn't loosing.


There were many more people there this week. Cody and Slivers came back. I bunch of people from the community college. I was fun to have such a diverse pool of decks.

MrSilk on Modern Competitive Solemnity - Non Budget

Ahh very good. I've updated the sideboard to reflect the changes. I've also added 3x spreading seas as well.

I think the list is pretty well settled.

The only things I can think about changing are taking out 1x/2x TiTi, 1x Glen Elendra Archmage for another Opt, Drift of Phantasms or 1x/2x Wall of Omens for more draw power and defense.

I may also change out a Declaration in Stone and bring a 4th Path to Exile.

I may switch out the Irrigated Farmland with Hallowed Fountain simply because I don't like being pinned with a possible tapped land, but I'll have to do some testing. Unfortunately for me, I don't have MTGO or anything to test this and only the physical cards to work with. I'm expecting a large bonus soon so I'll likely buy all of the cards bulk when it happens. Feel free to test this badboy out as much as you can!

I'm thinking I'll call this list "Blasting Solemnity"

This is hilarious. I think i've seen your last beeble deck, but this one is a lot cooler :)

Have you ever consisered Declaration in Stone? It would give you a control element that makes one of your beebles unblockable for at least a turn.
