Your opponent ill have to put both triggers on the stack, and will likely put Craterhoof Behemoth's trigger on the bottom and Avenger of Zendikar's on top. You won't respond, allowing the top ability to resolve and make a bunch of tokens. Then your opponent will get priority again and assume the bottom ability is going to resolve because people don't normally respond in the middle of a stack resolution, so they'll pass priority. At this point you'll have priority and be able to respond, casting Echoing Decay or Bile Blight or Echoing Truth on one of the tokens. Now you'll pass priority and give your opponent a chance to respond. If they don't, the spell will resolve killing all the tokens and leaving the stack with Craterhoof Behemoth's ability on it and your opponent having [priority. They pass to you, you pass back, and the ability resolves with a smaller boost to the team than they wanted.

Since both creatures enter the battlefield on the resolution of Tooth and Nail I'm not sure if I get time to respond to ETB triggers. Say the controller orders those triggers on the stack as this:

  1. When Craterhoof Behemoth enters the battlefield, creatures you control gain trample and get +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of creatures you control.

  2. When Avenger of Zendikar enters the battlefield, create a 0/1 green Plant creature token for each land you control.

My question is this:

Can I respond to the resolution of the Avenger's trigger? I would cast Echoing Decay for example, targetting a 0/1 plant token. Can this resolve before the Craterhoof's trigger making the plants huge?

Not bad, but that mana curve is concerning. I am worried you are sacrificing too much of the deck for Phylactery Lich, which is a fun card but I see a whole fourth of your deck serving him only and little else. While big bads are good you need to be doing something the first three turns in Modern or else you'll be playing catchup the whole game which is no fun at all. Consider smaller zombies with good value, like Cryptbreaker or Relentless Dead that way you gain board presence early and can survive until your big bands hit the field. Also, Think of token or mass removal for the sideboard like Bile Blight or Echoing Decay so you don't get overwhelmed.

I agreed with adding x4Manamorphose, I really really like them, In my opinion its kinda playing with 56 cards, would definetely run the full playset in "any" greend or red deck.

I might add some Essence Warden, or Wellwisher instead, I dont know.

And about the Fireball idea, I love the idea, might add a few in the side and/or main deck, to have an alternative win condition, since its not so expected.


I dint know about Echoing Decay so Ill definetely wont run four copies of any of the mana generator elves, besides Birchlore Rangers.

And about Elvish Visionary and Sylvan Ranger Ill really have to think about it, since I personally love to draw/make thinier the deck, but probably will cut at least one or two of both them.

Also, its Lys Alana Huntmaster worth adding? Its not bad at all, and can work greatly with Elvish Vanguard or Ivy Lane Denizen buts its too expensive in my opinion.

Sorry for the long wait. I really wanted to coment both of you sooner and definitely would appreaciate more tips coming from you. See you later.

looks good, some things to consider. run 3Elvish Mystic, 3Llanowar Elves and 2 Fyndhorn Elves this helps against Echoing Decay. also cut 1Sylvan Ranger and 1Elvish Visionary for 2Elvish Vanguard. the one island is not as much of a problem as you think the Birchlore Rangers rely help this.

Now you just need a solid sideboard to protect your zombies from stuff like Echoing Decay. Parallel lives will probably get hit with enchantment hate. Idk what people usually play in Modern. I don't have the wallet play it competitively, haha. Decks with black usually use Go for the Throat. They're likely to use spot removal like that to take down your Grave Titan, but atleast you'll get 2-4 Zombies out of him. But blue control decks will probably be most effective against your deck.

Reason: UG Infect is criminally under represented in the pauper format. The problem with Infect and Pauper is that format such as legacy and modern where infect can roam free because of the narrow focus of the removal spells. The removal spells in pauper tend to sacrifice effects which make investing in one creature difficult. I guess the game plan would be to play 2-3 infect creatures and attack! ATTACK! ATTACK! and pump the non sacrificed creature.


  1. what is your board plan against Terminate? Echoing Decay? Disfigure? and other targeted removal in game 2?

  2. Is a SB Pulse of Murasa too slow for the deck's strategy?

  3. I like the 4 tool box lands. Would you ever use more than of the tool box lands in the main deck? Is this META dependent?

Soul's Attendant (if nothing else, switch out two of the Soul Wardens to lessen the effectiveness of cards like Bile Blight and Echoing Decay). Chalice of Life  Flip would work well, as would many of the monowhite planeswalkers. Ajani Goldmane and Ajani, Caller of the Pride take advantage of the lifegain best and most versions of Elspeth are good with weenies.
