Jelly-On-Toast on Eldrazi (Needs Help)

19 hours ago

Already got Eldrazi Temple, and the problem with Liliana is that while i'm not super budget, I'd like to keep it down because it's really just a home-brew. Also, Liliana, the Last Hope is going to be dropping soon and i know a guy who can hook me up with some foils. I don't really think not having zombies is a problem

What about Eldrazi Temple? You are playing only eldrazi creatures after all

Liliana is really useful? I mean you are not playing around zombies, if you are not on a budget you could switch to Liliana of the Veil instead.

Hope it can help

I sure as hell don't care for commander but I got a Doubling Cube MP 5th dawn, I'll take any modern staple similar in value.

If you think your card is worth more than mine i will be happy to throw in some additional value.

If you have an Eldrazi Temple i could sweeten the deal even more

Delta-117 on Legend of THE Deck

Hey there, I see you have definitely tried out a lot of differing playstyles that's for sure. Let me apologize in advance for the length of what I have had to say, but all of which I feel helps to give some background to the deck choices I now play.

Anyways here's a bit of background about my experience with magic. I first had started playing at around Theros, although I knew nothing of modern, or even standard at this time and just played this casual deck featuring Prophet of Kruphix, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Heroes' Bane, Plasm Capture, Explosive Vegetation, Roil Elemental, Archetype of Imagination, Horizon Chimera, Chasm Skulker, and some other stuff. I always had difficulty keeping it at 60 cards and at it's highest I think I was playing like 80 or so cards. I eventually opened a Windswept Heath expedition by the time of BFZ and proceeded to sell it when I learned of it's value a few weeks later. With the credit and some cash I bought things like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth because I started to become very interested in the eldrazi tribe, then stuff like Omnath, locust of mana, Spawnsire of Ulamog, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and all of the other praetors minus Urabrask.

Next I then got into playing commander, and my then first actual constructed deck was one led by Vorel of the Hull Clade and which was largely at first built from my existing casual simic deck. Then into playing standard at around late BFZ / a few months away from OGW releasing with essentially an upgraded into deck around eldrazi. Then by around SOI I began playing my first 'competitive' standard deck in contrast to the eldrazi with vampires which were somewhat hyped early on. I also began playing modern around this time too, and at first with this eldrazi deck. I now look back at how horrible that deck was lol, it played basic lands, Jungle Hollows, 1 Eldrazi Temple, and a couple Shrine of the Forsaken Gods alongside things like Bane of Bala Ged, Blisterpod, and even my 1x Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. My first match ever of modern I obviously got wrecked and it was by storm, here I was playing Blisterpod and the like while my opponent was casting Gitaxian Probe after Gitaxian Probe, Serum Visions, Pyretic Ritual etc and my awful, clunky deck never got to do anything.

Later I just borrowed decks from others at my town's still fairly new lgs and I started with mono green stompy and then infect which I absolutely loved. I started to build the deck myself during Eldritch Moon largely from trades from the same guy who let me play the deck to start with, who had extra cards for the deck. I however sadly stopped building it at around kaladesh/aether revolt after the banning of Gitaxian Probe and the printing of fatal push. More recently noble hierarchs have had increased a fair bit in prices and that was another reason. Being a student I didn't want to sink too much money into modern at first either. Later on, much closer to the present I finally began to build a tron deck for modern to take the place of my unfinished infect. I had already been thinking of building such a deck much earlier at around the same time as I originally was thinking about infect, but I decided against it and chose the infect.

I now went with the more cheaper mono version of the deck and through almost 100% by trading I managed to put together the deck to play about a month before Amonkhet released.

In summary here, I took a liking early on in magic to casting large spells as seen by my playing of eldrazi, ramping, and then as well as generating lots of mana overall. That is why I now see that tron and any of it's variants are among my favorite type of deck to play. From also playing with the praetors and a couple other cards long ago, I had also taken a liking to the Mirrodin block and the infect mechanic even though I never got the chance to play at that time. At some point, I plan to finish the deck even though it isn't what it use to be, but that's alright as I like the playstyle it offers and a bit more of a challenge might keep things interesting. Mainly got to buy the Noble Hierarchs, then some more of the lands like Pendelhaven, Breeding Pools, and 3 more of the 8 average green fetches it wants to have, but then it was done.

Although I didn't mention it before, but from Kaladesh up until now I have been playing a delirium deck, and more recently an energy variant due to rotation nearing and I also loved the graveyard interaction and strategies. Emrakul, the Promised End, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Liliana, the Last Hope, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Flayer, alongside Traverse the Ulvenwald was a blast to play. While not being maybe top tier, I have been keeping in mind porting something like this deck over to modern despite unfortunately selling off my lilianas and flayers and making a sultai () delirium deck in modern. Tarmogoyf, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy, Mishra's Bauble, Thoughtseize among others could be added. Abzan midrange has also been in my mind to try. I would like to find a home for one of my all time favorite cards since I started back in Theros, and that is Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in modern maybe.

Furthermore, just like eldrazi, slivers are among my most favorite and beloved creature types in magic, and that is why I now play them in commander, pauper, and someday hopefully standard too! I have been considering now that tron is finished, of buiding something else in modern that is tribal and with the recent iconic masters spoilers revealing a reprint to aether vial, that now is the time to try something like this whether it be slivers, or even merfolk in modern.

Here is a final breakdown of what I like to play and might possibly build .

Current decks:- Mono U Tron (Might later try out eldrazi tron if I acquire chalices and temples)- Infect (Not complete)

Ideas for my future decks (Probably will only choose 1-2)

  • Affinity

  • Slivers or Merfolk tribal

  • Abzan Midrange

  • U/W Control

  • Sultai Delirium

On a final note, what I suggest you look into anyways is trying something with planeswalkers perhaps? With the upcoming changes to planeswalkers from Ixalan, this might open up some interesting new ideas. My immediate thoughts on this are playing an orzhov () deck around Gideon of the Trials and other gideons, then even Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope, plus stuff like possibly Slaughter Pact , Collective Brutality, then also tokens from Bitterblossom, and Lingering Souls.

Or what about consider something like Abzan just like I have always been interested in. Here's a sample list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-abzan#paper

I will admit the price of something like it had always scared me away from it in the past, even now still kind of after some reprints in mm17, but I definitely have been interested in it.

But anyways what you could try doing if you haven't already been doing so, is proxying cards and even decks to get a feel for them outside of fnm events and what not. I suggest you give something like my above suggestion a try or something from my own interests listed. I hope this was of help to you as well as maybe even remotely interesting or more, I do apologize yet again for the extensiveness of my post!

Since Eye of Ugin is banned, you'd might as well settle with Eldrazi Temple.

Primeval Titan is a really great ramp card/beater.

I agree with Disciple_of_Doran in that you'd might as well switch from blue to green if you want a ramp strategy, since you will have access to both Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet, along with Awakening Zone, From Beyond, and the aforementioned Primeval Titan.

multimedia on Freyalise, Llanowar's Perfection (Competitive)

Hey, you're being too concerned with Freyalise dying. Freyalise dying shouldn't really be a problem because you can take advantage of the fact that the deck makes tons of mana. You can just recast her from the Command Zone. Now I'm not saying to just throw her away for nothing, but because of the mana strategy you have more freedom here with her.

As far as you're strategy goes she isn't really a big part of it other than creating Elves who can ramp for you. She's being used as a support Commander here for Elves which is fine, but playing cards that Elves can directly benefit from is more important than maybe Freyalise dying.

I noticed you said you aren't playing Beast Within because the 3/3 can pressure Freyalise and the same about Crossroads. I urge you to change your mindset about Freyalise because using the reason for not playing some very good cards because she has the possibility of dying is not as bad as you think. You already got some value, although not very good value for the mana, from her either a Elf token or got to destroy an artifact/enchantment. She's done her duty if she dies before you can -6 her it's fine because you can get her back.

Think of Eternal Witness as a versatile back-up plan. If you're mass mana producing Elf gets killed which will happen or one of the infinite mana combo artifacts get destroyed or Gaea's Cradle gets Strip Mined or Sylvan Library is destroyed or Karn gets Counterspelled. Witness can get any one of these cards back to your hand. That's much better than Crushing Vines.

Something to think about is Eldrazi Temple is good with three Eldrazi in the entire deck where as Hollow is good for every creature in the deck. Cutting Path for Hollow is a good idea as Path is even more narrow, situational than Temple is. Versatility and squeezing as much value as you can out of a card are two important things about being competitive.

When using Survival and Fauna it's better to utilize creatures with affects that spells have rather than the spells. This is because these two powerful cards have synergy with creatures and not spells. If there's a creature who has the same effect as a spell such as Regal and Revelation as example then Regal in my opinion is the better option. It's much more likely that you can tutor for Regal than it is you draw Revelation. The same can be said comparing Witness to Regrowth. Both are very good cards, but because Witness is a creature she's better here.

Thanks for the suggestions multimedia

you might be on to something with Regal Force, i'll have to do some play test with him.

not so sure about Eternal Witness. the card is no doubt extremely good, and can help by getting my Priest of Titania back ect. I'll keep it in mind when I tutor. If she were an elf it would be a no brainier, I've been in the fence for a while.

while Concordant Crossroads is a must include in 90% of elf decks, if it doesn't set you up to win, or win you the game that turn it will make it easier for my opponents to kill Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury. this is another card I've been on the fence about, and has been in the deck in previous iterations.

I've honestly never been a fan of Worldly Tutor, I should probably give it a chance though.

I completely agree with Cavern of Souls and it would be in the deck if not for the price :P.

Yavimaya Hollow is good but i'm not sure I'd be willing to take out Eldrazi Temple for it. Maybe it could replace Homeward Path since Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury can disenchant most attempts at stealing my creatures.

thanks! you've given me a lot to think about!
