Dispatch Discussion

awesomeragle on No Banned List Modern

1 week ago

Take a look at my edit, this is what I expect from no banned list modern, which is what many of you reflected. I believe lukas96 and sirkehn are over evaluating the effect of artifact lands on affinity. Even with artifact lands it doesn't speed up the clock, and in fact lowers the consistency of it if you remove man lands or even worse try to put something like Disciple of the Vault in the deck. The "interaction" of Dispatch and Galvanic Blast is simply not enough to slow down anyone. I also saw someone mention Chrome Mox as a card affinity can play? The "exile a nonartifact, nonland card from your hand" clause on that card makes it difficult to include in affinity ;). Not to mention if you want to get any use out of Skullclamp, you have to find room for it. I envision affinity looking basically how it does now, except with a completely different sideboard given the different meta and instead of Galvanic Blast or Thoughtcast, just playing 4 Skullclamp. Which, in my evaluation, is simply not fast enough for Tier 1

Boza, I would be interested to see a dredge deck for modern that uses Dread Return, because I can't tell what it would look like. Otherwise I was planning on a version of dredge and had a specific side board strategy for it with two Rest in Peace obviously paired with Terminus to clean up whatever got through before I resolved the enchantment. In fact everything you've listed is what I have been counting on, I believe I can interrupt elves very easily for example. The only thing I think we don't see eye to eye on is how important Chalice of the Void is specifically for this deck against the field. Literally this deck is trying to abuse Counterbalance as a 1 sided, variable Chalice of the Void. I even put one in the side board for Match ups where I really want to chalice on 0 as early as possible. I have 21 1 drops and 22 lands, meaning Counterbalance blindly played on turn 2 is very likely to be as good as chalice on 0 or 1, then I get to manipulate it as soon as I get a Sensei's Divining Top in play. I understand you know how the deck works, but I think you just didn't seem to connect how comparable the two cards really are.

Dispatch might be good in here

Your artifacts and equipment seem to be an important part of your deck's strategy. I would recommend Open the Armory and/or Fabricate.

Bident of Thassa is a straight upgrade over Coastal Piracy and is an artifact to go alongside cards like Fabricate and Dispatch.

Memory Lapse, Hinder, Unexpectedly Absent, and Azorius Charm all put things back on top of an opposing library so that you may steal them.

The deck doesn't seem to have much in the way of ramp or acceleration. I only count 3 mana rocks and Sword of Feast and Famine. Having enough mana to steal expensive opposing spells seems critical. I'd recommend adding Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Worn Powerstone, Sword of the Animist and Azorius Signet.

Fell the Mighty is a way to deal with the larger creatures in your play group that you mentioned while not disrupting Daxos or your other smaller creatures.

Swords to Plowshares is premium removal that isn't terribly expensive to purchase.

Medomai the Ageless, Drogskol Reaver, and Thada Adel, Acquisitor all fit your theme of "creatures that have triggered abilities when they deal combat damage."

Cathedral of War is a land that makes sure Daxos is a 3/3 as long as he attacks alone so that he can't be walled by opposing 2/2 creatures.

Buried Ruin helps recur destroyed equipment.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation protects your equipment and potentially offers card draw.

Your deck doesn't seem to have many expensive cards in it so I tried to keep all of my suggestions budget friendly. Most of them cost $2 or less and none of them should be more than $5.

@Shadow63 Thanks for pointing that out! XD I am a little hesitant on Sram, Senior Edificer just because I enjoy a pure construct creature deck but I definitely will try it out either way, but Dispatch sounds like it would be an awesome addition for some removal! Thank you. :)

You got a spelling error in your discription and have you thought about adding in Sram, Senior Edificer or Dispatch?

After testing this a few times I came to the conclusion that this actually caused an creature shortage and an artifact shortage for Dispatch so I am removing the extra Cranial Plating and replacing them with the two Signal Pest I removed.

Hello Suns_Champion! Thank you very much for your attention and your fast and accurate suggestions: I'll have to think about them carefully. I'll add Hokori, Dust Drinker, Authority of the Consuls and Meekstone as soon as I find them! In my opinion Teferi, Temporal Archmage is very nice, but in this moment I'm trying to reduce the mana curve of the deck. I'm testing also Dispatch, Orim's Chant and some of the lands, and then I'll let you know. Thank you again for the analysis of my 1st deck.
