Desolation Twin Discussion

Hey I notice that you are running some creatures that I think are sort of questionable. These creatures dont seem to do anything that you want to be doing if you are running trostani(i.e make tokens.).

Filigree Familiar ( I know you gain some life and draw a card but the life gain is not really doing much for may be card draw buy you need something more reliable or soemthing that draws more cards.)

Pelakka Wurm (Same deal it gains you life but only once and dosn't do too much else other than be a big body)

Victory's Herald(dosn't seem to do too much for you and isnt on either side of your win plan. Which i assume is gain life or make big creatures.)

cards that might be good to add.any of the soul sisters. you are going to be making lots of creatures and if your win plan is based on gaining life they are a small mana investment that will pay off every turn that you are making creatures.

Desolation Twin. its big, its bad, it brings a buddy.

Any bit of ramp. You have green there are tons of green ramp cards better than Wayfarer's Bauble or Springleaf Drum in the case of spring leaf Cryptolith Rite wich is the budget version of Earthcraft any of the green ramp staples would be good to add.

Over all I think this is a cool deck you just need to focus on what your win cons are. Is it enchantments? Is it life gain? Is it beat face?? I think once you have a set win con it will be easier to pair down what cards are helping and what cards are just mediocre.

here are some good cards for the deck just to look over.

Also I made a Trostani deck in the past. It isnt my most recent build but here it is if you want some inspiration A Token of my Gratification

Staff of Nin could be a decent card in here. Draw power and additional poke each turn to play your big baddies. Also, Rite of Consumption could turn one dude into another in a very efficient manner, say sac your Desolation Twin token for a Kozilek, the Great Distortion.

Desolation Twin will not make a token, because it was not cast.

I think the best budget blue deck you can make in Modern is either Delver or Tron.

Tron is trying to assemble the three tron lands Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Mine (they are about a 1$ a piece). With these three lands on the battlefield you can play big creatures like Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Desolation Twin and Bane of Bala Ged and Cyclonic Rift. In the early game you play counters and tempo cards like Condescend, Repeal, and Expedition Map to find tron lands.

Delver is much more spell centric with Delver of Secrets being the all star which flips into Insectile Aberration  Flip. The other creatures are small evasive creatures with Ninja of the Deep Hours, Spellstutter Sprite, Faerie Miscreant, etc... the non creature spells are all tempo related like Vapor Snag, Deprive, Remand, Serum Visions, Opt.

I believe both of these versions can be built for 30$ and be budget competitive with room to grow and acquire more expensive pieces.

I personally love Torment of Hailfire just as much as Debt to the Deathless. The issue is blacks mana ramp. In order for it to be lethal you need >=. since Sacrifice and Dark Ritual aren't options in modern it may be a bit difficult getting to your alt drops of Karn, Ulamog, or Ugin. I'd replace Ulamog with Desolation Twin. You get 2 10/10s and while not having indestruct. it is a pro/con.

The other thing is that Chromatic Star and Exp. Map seem expensive for what they are doing. While this deck is mono, I'd still splash in Orzhov Signet or Dimir Signet instead of these. It gives you black mana, and you're not doing a 1-for-1 trade from colorless to black.

I'd also add Warping Wail into this deck. While it can only counter sorceries. The other card to consider to help lock down your opponent until you can get hailfire out is Torment of Scarabs. Otherwise +1

Glad to help. I play EDH enough I never forget about it. (the newest for me is Desolation Twin + Strionic Resonator = 3x /s

Yeah, I suppose flickering something like Desolation Twin would be way too strong.

Have you thought of throwing in some eldrazi, ones like Artisan of Kozilek or Desolation Twin while their mana costs are steep they aren't any of the titans so the are low priced and will still pack a serious punch
