Drowned Catacomb Discussion

UpsetYoMama on Faerie Dust is a Hard Drug v2.0

I'm playing Faeries as one of my decks right now. This looks pretty good, a few thoughts.

I'm actually running a higher percentage of basics. This is in part due to the fact that Blood Moon is prevalent and it's easier to get hated out otherwise. If they drop BM turn three and you've got only nonbasics it's almost guaranteed GG.

I don't like River of Tears because of its variance, but maybe that's just me. I'm actually running a few copies of Drowned Catacomb.

I kind of like Go for the Throat over Victim of Night, but I guess that's a call on how much affinity is in your meta. There's really only one guy who plays it consistently in mine. I run Hurkyl's Recall in the side to deal with him. It also helps with Tron and Lantern Control, although that's a fringe deck.

I'm running two Tectonic Edge because of the high prevalence of man lands right now.

@Didgeridooda thank you very much for the suggestion. After play-testing the deck a couple of times, I did realize that people tend to want to get rid of your ninja enablers, so stalker is perfect for that. I put Despise and Duress in my side board as well. Now, if you would'nt mind giving me further help, would you suggest if Drowned Catacomb or Darkslick Shores is better for this deck and help with the land in general? Thank you again.

Alright, I'll try and keep the suggestions as cheap as possible.

For the mana base, you could try some Darkslick Shores and Drowned Catacomb to help fix your mana. Also add Polluted Delta if you can, as it makes your Brainstorms much better.

Here are some other cards to consider -

I'd probably cut Diabolic Tutor. You already have a lot of filtering/tutor effects, so I think more permission/disruption is where you want to be.

Thousand-Year Elixir is one of the best cards for this deck.

Your land base needs a bunch of work. The lands that come in tapped, including those temples, are just not great.

Pain lands - Adarkar Wastes, Underground River. City of Brass

Check lands - Glacial Fortress, Drowned Catacomb, Isolated Chapel

Shock lands - Hallowed Fountain, Watery Grave, Godless Shrine I feel these are pretty low right now, and will rise slowly, but surely over the next couple years. I think the time to buy in is now.

Any fetches you can get ahold of.

Fast lands - Darkslick Shores, Seachrome Coast

This was my first EDH deck I ever built, and I love it very much. I have played it for 5 years or so now. If you want to check out mine, Wub Wub Deck

I think your mana base needs some help for modern format you have way to many lands that come in tapped- So first I'd suggest dropping all the scry lands and going for Overgrown Tomb + Steam Vents + Blood Crypt + Watery Grave then adding 3 more Bloodstained Mire as they can fetch these which you can then elect to bring in tapped or untapped. This will go a long way to helping with mana fixing. Also Drop the citp lands for Pillar of the Paruns and the check lands: Drowned Catacomb+ Dragonskull Summit+ Rootbound Crag
I'd drop Silumgar's Command (at 5 cmc it's not likely to be played very often )and replacing it with Abrupt Decay since it will get rid of any pesky early drop.

I'm not a big fan of Greater Auramancy unless you have 4x Zur the Enchanter. It can hurt you as much as help in certain situations. I would look into Curiosity over some of the removal and Sigil of the Empty Throne just seems too slow. Also, this deck seems to want to be midrange and control. I would suggest taking out Ethersworn Adjudicator, Godhead of Awe, and Shipwreck Singer for Invisible Stalker and Slippery Bogle, especially if you are only running 20 lands, which is extremely light. I would also suggest taking out Cloud Key for another land, preferably a fetch land if you have access to another Polluted Delta or Flooded Strand. I would also look into Seachrome Coast, Glacial Fortress, Hallowed Fountain, Darkslick Shores, Watery Grave, Drowned Catacomb, Isolated Chapel, Godless Shrine, and when it gets reprinted in battle for zendikar (I HOPE) Marsh Flats. Even after taking out the higher cmc creatures and enchantments, I would suggest at least 21 lands with 22 likely being the sweet spot. Don't forget the best enchantment for an enchantment deck, Ethereal Armor! Hyena Umbra is also great at getting around kill spellls and wrath effects, and Eel Umbra is similar, but it can essentially be used as a counter to any such effect.

This deck is not modern, just so you know :). I suggest adding black cards, as that is where two of the strongest fairie cards are, those being Bitterblossom and Oona's Blackguard. Vendilion Clique Is very strong, and to fic your land baser, Watery Grave Polluted Delta Underground Sea Darkslick Shores Darkwater Catacombs Dimir Aqueduct Drowned Catacomb Secluded Glen Temple of Deceit. other good black cards are Damnation Hero's Downfall and Oona's Prowler. Lastly, Glen Elendra Liege for a more long term strategy
