Diabolic Edict Discussion

I don't really like Pyric Salamander here, it just uses up so much mana... if you agree that it isn't working well for you, maybe Mardu Scout instead? Keldon Halberdier is also a creature that's kinda like Ball Lightning, but probably a bit too slow.

Innocent Blood could be a nice alternative to Diabolic Edict , but it's sorcery speed.

I'm a big fan of Temur Battle Rage , it could give your Arc Runner the trample it needs to not just get chump blocked.

While Cast Down does seem like a catch-all, some of the most played creatures in certain decks are legendary. Griselbrand , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Vendilion Clique , Sram and Baral in combo decks, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . And while Diabolic Edict does give them a choice, most decks will have the cards above out around turn 2, so it is quite possible that you can just pick it off with Edict. Just something to think about. Also, Surgical Extraction (or Extirpate for budget) seem pretty vital here.

I have to wonder - FoF is a powerful card, but does it have any place in modern? It is too slow for modern for sure. Diabolic Edict would be nice, if they haven't just printed the strictly better Liliana's Triumph .

I am personally most excited for Exclude reprint.

However, Maro has said that the set is 80+% new cards, so there are not a lot of reprints as a whole.

I am pleased that Diabolic Edict is being introduced to modern, since it is not too powerful, but I am very displeased that Fact or Fiction is being reprinted in this set, since I really wish that it had been kept only for eternal formats.

Is WotC seriously attempting to blur the lines between modern and legacy? I do hope that they attempt to keep the two formats distinct from each other.

Good suggestion. Considering Diabolic Edict since I own them, although Terror has that flavor.

Diabolic Edict (unless im missing something) is strictly worse than Liliana's Triumph . Otherwise I love this deck list. I hope that modern horizons is as nice to control decks as predicted here.
