Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Discussion
1 day ago
its not about grand prix's dude! even at just the fnm level, Mana Leak is absolutely better than Cancel. if you're playing at fnm, you ARE playing at fast speeds. you really are. for all you know, you could be paired against Storm or Grishoalbrand decks that win on turn 2. or someone could attack you with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 3. YOU are the one that said you might take it to fnm, and if you really think that even just the fnm level isn't going to still be full of a bunch of meta netdecks, you're kidding yourself. the idea that "one isnt better than the other" is just blatantly false. i do understand the intent of the deck, but thats no reason not to at least TRY to make it somewhat decent. you really just aren't getting it. tell ya what. go to a modern fnm tonight, and ask 10 random modern players (who actually look like they know what they're doing, and not some 10 year old kid) which is better. i 100,000% guarantee you 10/10 say Mana Leak. if someone by chance does say they think Cancel is better, check their win: loss record at the end of the night. they'll probably be 1:3, or 1:4 if theres 5 rounds.
i also find it hilarious how you say "im not playing at those speeds" and then immediately follow it with "one isn't better than the other". the 2 statements directly contradict each other, because saying "im not playing at those speeds" is literally acknowleding that Mana Leak is better.

DankStompy I mean, if I was looking for the most efficient deck ever I wouldn't be using only Wall creatures in the first place. It's not about to go win any tournaments, it's a gimmicky stupid wall deck for casual play. So maybe try not to hold it to that kind of breakneck speed and high efficiency. In my play group a turn 7 win is about what you'd expect. Much longer, actually, since we usually have more than 2 players. This deck isn't gonna be facing off any turn 3 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn anytime soon.
Also, I like Cancel because it actually gets rid of the spell, unlike Remand which pretty much just delays the spell and Mana Leak which doesn't even guarantee a successful counter. Worth spending the one extra mana to me.
Also, also, Twisted Image doesn't work on Wall of Denial due to its Shroud. One of the things thats making me consider replacing it. Just don't know what with. Wall of Frost is probably the hardest hitter.
If you have a better Wall in mind, I'd love to hear it.

Door of Destinies is far too slow for modern. why Cancel instead of Remand or Mana Leak? Rolling Stones and Twisted Image are basically useless here since your creatures have 0 or 1 power. btw even if you do attack with Fog Bank, it can't deal damage. where are the fetchlands and shocklands?
in a best case scenario, you could hope to win turn 7, which is incredibly slow for modern.
T1-T3: cast Rolling Stones
T4: cast Door of Destinies
T5: cast Wall of Denial. it'll be a 1/9
thats just far too slow, and again thats a "best" case scenario. only Wall of Denial has enough toughness to win by turn 7. the deck is just simply too fragile. keep in mind modern games are usually decided by turn 4. a person could be attacking you with an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 3.

Stormtide Leviathan is far too expensive for modern. without mana ramp or a lot of "interaction" (cards that can stop your opponent from killing you in some way) you're not gonna be able to cast cards with a mana cost of 5 or higher. you have almost zero interaction with the opponent. and why do you only have basic lands? keep in mind modern is a format where games are won or locked down by turn 4 typically. a player could even be attacking with an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 3.

bwanabeast5 i never said you were lying "because its the internet". the fact you're trying to give some "other" reason why I think you're lying, just proves you're lying even more. because it means you're trying to distract from the ACTUAL reason i think you're lying, which i've already stated. don't try to act like the reason i think you're lying is because "its the internet", when really its just the fact that, again, nobody who has played modern would have given the advice you did. have you EVER seen ANYBODY use Oblivion Strike as an actual answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn? the answer is of course no. right now, you're the one making a big deal out of it and getting all flustered.

bwanabeast5: yeah i know you're not trying to "make his deck". never said you were. but see heres the thing, nobody who has ever actually played modern would make the suggestions you did. thats just not a thing that would happen. nobody suggests Hero's Downfall before they suggest Fatal Push, Go for the Throat, or Smother, or suggests Oblivion Strike as an answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. theres really no need to lie about which tournaments you've been to. you're allowed to tell the truth and say you've never played modern before.

bwanabeast5: have you ever played modern before? your last comment really makes me think you havent. for one thing, theres a pretty good amount of mono black creature removal spells that are better than Hero's Downfall. secondly, Oblivion Strike is a sorcery, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is pretty much only put into play with haste. and thats if we ignore the fact that Oblivion Strike is basically just a terrible card in almost every scenario. 4 mana for sorcery speed removal will never make its way into any serious modern deck.

I'm not saying the deck is bad, I'm just trying to imply that if you want to control the board I would run more things like Hero's Downfall or Oblivion Strike if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn came into play. I'm just throwing out different scenario's because these are a lot of the things I run in to.
