Enduring Ideal Discussion

Funkydiscogod on Theros: Beyond Death Spoilers

I'm looking at Kiora Bests the Sea God as the new best possible finisher for Enduring Ideal -style decks: It answers literally everything: even if the 8/8 is unable to attack because of Ensnaring Bridge , or the opponent can't be targeted because of Leyline of Sanctity , those permanents can just be stolen when the saga expires.

It used to be about inevitability, and setting up a board state that was impossible to lose before pulling out the traditional finisher Form of the Dragon . Now, simply resolving an Enduring Ideal means the opponent has exactly one turn to win.

Even destroying the Saga doesn't stop everything from being tapped permanently, because of the way sagas are worded. Enduring Ideal puts it on the battlefield during the upkeep for part one, and at the start of the precombat main phase you get part two. Everything still gets tapped, and the krakens are still incoming.

Then, best of all, the Saga sacrifices itself, so you can put it on the top of your library with Hall of Heliod's Generosity so it only takes two for infinite recursion.

PurePwnage I think it could be modern-worthy. I mean, people do make Enduring Ideal -based decks, that aren't too different from yours.

For a turn 1 play, you could use Oppressive Rays , Sky Tether , Porphyry Nodes or On Thin Ice , depending on your preferences.

Obviously, not all of those belong in the same deck.

Restore Balance and Generous Gift are probably most useful in a deck full of cascade spells and borderposts .

Flagstones of Trokair and Porphyry Nodes are often used in Enduring Ideal prison decks: Flagstones tutors out Mistveil Plains to put Nodes on the bottom of the library to be found again.

Sky Hussar is best friends with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and could be a win condition of America control, or as a stepping stone for Prime Speaker Vannifar .

You can make white tokens using Legion's Landing  Flip and Recruit the Worthy with Intangible Virtue and other anthem effects.

You can make flying tribal with Squadron Hawk and Battle Screech with Sephara, Sky's Blade and other flying support cards.

My deck really isn't a Narset deck. I went into the games informing the other players that the deck is not voltron and it does not include extra turns.

I prefer to play jank, and this deck just wants to play Enduring Ideal and a bunch of enchantments.

I don't know if you're still working on this deck, but I've made my own version of Narset, Token Master which I'm quite enjoying! I added lots of mana rocks so that I can Narset out and swinging as early as turn 4, and an Enduring Ideal along with Paradox Haze and other token-producers so that I can pump out troop after troop of creatures. Hope it gives you some inspiration! :)

Made a few more changes to the deck to help with its consistency. Replaced Heliod, God of the Sun and Thassa, God of the Sea with Mana Vault and Mystic Remora . Probably should have removed the gods a long time ago since they didn't really fit with the deck, but I had a soft spot for them. Mana Vault is another card to help cast Enduring Ideal ahead of schedule and Mystic Remora is another card draw enchantment that can get pretty ridiculous in a game with a lot of opponents or when used in conjunction with Solemnity . Also upgraded the land base a bit more adding Underground River and the Esper filter lands in place of some basics and Maze of Ith . I like Maze of Ith , but too often it can be a liability when you just want mana and with these changes it should be much more consistent in getting your colours out as well.

First, Propaganda is not modern legal.

Consider replacing Path to Exile and Oust with Porphyry Nodes , Oppressive Rays or Guard Duty .

In testing my Enduring Ideal deck, I found Perplexing Chimera has been an all star: it gives the opponent a useless 3/3 in exchange for any spell that might get them out of the lock, but that's a totally different style of deck. I think for your style deck, you would probably want Hall of Heliod's Generosity , and Lunar Force to lock them down while you mill them out with your Psychic Corrosion . You might also want Sphinx's Tutelage , Jace's Erasure or Memory Erosion to speed it up.

Also, find space for Honden of Seeing Winds and Honden of Cleansing Fire , at least one each.
