Dromoka's Command Discussion
1 week ago
A deck wanting to use Phyrexian Obliterator, without Arena or the already mentioned Gray Merchant of Asphodel seems odd. That being said this looks solid, main-deck graveyard hate/draw in the form of Nihil Spellbomb, is a good choice at the moment as is your removal suite. You probably have too many extraction effect in your sideboard, I'd cut Infinite Obliteration and Cranial Extraction, maybe try Dromoka's Command, Abzan Ascendancy or Lingering Souls?

Demarge you drive home a good point. I have been considering cutting blue and possibly Salt Road Quartermasters. Cards like Dromoka's Command and Gavony Township seem better and more consistent. I appreciate the help.

I like most of my sideboard as is, but I'm open to suggestions.
After feedback from a friend, I'm probably going to drop all of the Serra Avengers and go for 2 Dromoka's Command or 2 Journey to Nowhere, with the extra card going... somewhere. Maybe Lyra, maybe Aurelia. I feel like 4 Lyras is too much, I'll end up with two of her in hand, and while you're right that she's got a massive target on her back, that still feels like too much for a legendary.
Regarding Cast Out, Ixalan's Binding, and others like them, my feeling is that the step from 3 drop to 4 drop is huge and really cuts into their usefulness. Plus, 4 is where I want to start dropping all my big angels ;)

I mean, I see jund players running Maelstrom Pulse and Abrupt Decay, Green tron and Dredge players running Nature's Claim, Bant Spirits running Dromoka's Command and Knight of Autumn, etc. The list could go on. Sure alot of it is in the sideboard but those cards are there for a reason. Artifact and enchantment hate is usually bundled, and people almost always have some sort of answer to those cards for modern in my experience. I personally always include artifact/enchantment hate in my sideboards because so many people at my local run Ensnaring Bridge and other cards similar. You can probably shoal in response sure, but a single edict effect can kill whatever you happened to cheat out. If the opponent hasn't already killed you. I disagree that enchantment/artifact hate is rare in modern, I see cards in a ton of sideboards.
Not to mention any control deck can leave 2 mana open to stop you from playing it. The combo might be strong game 1, but game 2 its not that hard to see coming and stop, like most high CMC combos in modern. You also need to have Sunbird's Invocation, a shoal, and a big creature in your hand to pull the combo off, plus ramp the first few turns while somehow not dying. There are 2 card combos that go infinite in modern that cost less than 6 that can do very similar things as Sunbird's Invocation. Or the OTK decks that actually kill you on turn 4, not just drop a big creature down that then has to swing the next 2 turns to kill the opponent.

Step 5 is both the easiest and the most tedious. You need to find cards that synergize and support your core cards. Once again I'm looking toward my Humans deck Thalia's Horde of Humans because it is probaby the most valence in this regard. You see kill spells like Path to Exile and draw spells like Harmonize. There are protection spells like Blossoming Defense and synergistic cards like Hardened Scales. Those were all noncreature spells. Creatures can give great value as well. Cards like Abzan Falconer and Tireless Tracker give great value along with being of the human creature type, which in that deck is preferable. There othere cards as well, cards like Collected Company and Dromoka's Command which gives we a card for almost every situation. You a varience of cards in every deck, seeing as how each card in MTG excels in doing one thing. Some kill creatures. Some draw you cards. Etc etc. You have to find the cards that fit in your deck, but at the same time do something other than just be there.

I really wish the time had been taken to build this list, so that I didn't need to spend so much time on it.
A lot of the cards weren't even spelt correctly.

I love the idea of this deck but I don't see it doing much against other modern decks.
But if you want to do budget deck any 1 mana elf like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic will do the job because you need that mana acceleration to crack your clues faster. Tamiyo, Field Researcher could be cool card and she is pretty cheap. Mana Leak or Metallic Rebuke or Remand because multiple Deprive will but you back in lands especially with out mana producing creatures. Dromoka's Command can be nice removal spell that can buffs your creature.
Also for mana base in 3 colors I highly recommend getting some two color lands and real fetch lands for more reliable manabase. Temple Garden is now cheap thanks for wizard reprinting it and Hallowed Fountain and Breeding Pool are coming in next set so their price will go lower. Also Seachrome Coast and/or Razorverge Thicket if you want fast lands so you can get turn 1 white without pain. And if you have the money few Horizon Canopy are extremely powerful
For sideboard suggestions Dispell or Spell Pierce fast, cheap and effective Damping Sphere against tron and storm/other combo decks Knight of Autumn value creature that does it all, Rest in Peace, Worship, Settle the Wreckage or Supreme Verdict, Kitchen Finks, Celestial Purge, Blessed Alliance
I hope that this helps
