Drowned Catacomb Discussion
3 days ago
Did some deck changes recently, take a look above. I really like the Thassa, God of the Sea and Trepanation Blade ideas. I also want to implement Jace's Phantasm. My fear if I take out Whispersilk Cloak and Aqueous Form for Thassa, I'll really be banking on 4 cards for the unblockable scheme. I'm unsure what to pull for Thassa, God of the Sea and Jace's Phantasm.

Drowned Catacomb is a pretty reasonably priced dual land. You should also think about running any of the dual tap lands, they slow you down early, but help with that mid-game quite a bit.

(Tainted Isle is not modern legal. Verify that you can use the cards before you add them.)
Remove 2-3 Dark Petition. 5 mana is really too much for a 'fast' modern deck like affinity. And you actually have five converted mana cost cards in the deck. Tezzeret is not so bad and Thoughtcast never really cost 5. You also need 4 Cranial Plating. Maybe some Welding Jar can help to protect your stuff. Get at least Drowned Catacomb. They are probably the best 2 color lands for their price, except Watery Grave and other shocklands are better. One day you will draw all the wrong lands and lose, wishing you had a good colored untapped land in time. The mana base is as much important as your creatures. Without the lands you can't play what you want when you really need to. (especially with 'heavy' colored CMC like or )
Springleaf Drum is what make artifact decks fast. Play it first turn, with a Memnite, then you can cast something else like Signal Pest or Vault Skirge (with 2 life) and attack with both on turn 2. Or even play a drop ( metalcrafted Etched Champion ?) turn 2, with 2 lands + the drum and a creature.
This is the core of most modern affinity decks.

I think there are a lot of ineffective cards in there. You just put a lot of 1~2 mill cards without a strong strategy, and a lot of heavily costed cards. That's not commander.

Currently your only hope of beating WU tron or any other deck that runs any eldrazi is a singleton Leyline of the Void off the board. Surgical Extraction is all but a must for mill in modern, and Extirpate isn't bad to have around either. These function as removal for you in a different sense: as soon as you get a certain card into someone's graveyard, it allows you to makes sure that their deck is devoid of that card: Griselbrand combo? Oops, there goes your Griselbrand. Splinter Twin? Taking a Splinter Twin out of their deck will take away their fastest plan to win.
Now, about sideboards. We want our sideboard to give us ways to beat common decks, not just be "extras" of cards we were thinking about running. For this reason I'd like to propose a few changes:
- Path to Exile to mainboard; almost all decks in the format have targets for Path, so it's hardly ever dead in any matchup. It's just a much less niche card than Crypt Incursion, which should easily go to Sideboard. It's really just usable against burn.
To run this change, we'd definitely need to fix your mana a little. Additionally, 26 lands is not necessary. I'd run something more along the lines of:
- 1x Creeping Tar Pit
- 3x Drowned Catacomb
- 2x Ghost Quarter
- 1x Godless Shrine
- 2x Hallowed Fountain
- 4x Island
- 4x Polluted Delta
- 3x Swamp
- 2x Watery Grave
- 1x Flooded Strand
- 1x Celestial Colonnade
Additionally, I can also see perhaps running the fastlands (ie, Darkslick Shores) in this list since it mostly needs lower mana costs. I like colonnade better as a manland in the build for a variety of reasons, including that it's better as a blocker in the circumstances where you need it, it doesn't die to Lightning Bolt, and it's vigilance allows you to hold up mana for Path to Exile or Thought Scour.
Lastly, since you run Archive Trap as a four of, why stop at four? Well, sure, it's not 0 mana, but do you have a 2 mana "mill for 13 and get a chump blocker" in your deck yet? No?
Snapcaster Mage is incredibly valuable and versatile because he essentially functions as four extra copies of your best spell- in many cases, he'll act as Archive trap 5-8 in this list, but he'll also be valuable in fetching back Cryptic Command, Path to Exile, and even just getting full value out of Thought Scour. With the edits to land and dropping 1x Jace's Phantasm, you can easily squeeze him in as a four of mainboard.

My advice, get rid of Carrion Crow. I think it might actually be worse than Fugitive Wizard, and that is saying something. Haha. Other than that, you have some fun zombies. I would say add one Undead Warchiefand more of either Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, or Diregraf Captain. Also, I think maybe Dark Ritual might fit better than Lotus Bloom.
Is your goal to win by milling or to win by damage, cause I see pretty good damage dealing potential here, but if you get out Undead Alchemist you might totally screw over killing your opponent with damage, giving them a few turns while you try and mill them to death. Best just to pick one and roll with it, eh? If you go with milling I would suggest running four alchemists and some sorceries to mill. I.E. Mind Funeral.
Other than that, some better dimir lands might be helpful. Drowned Catacomb is pretty fair priced right now. :)
Hope this helps.
