This is a very interesting build. Like the focus on centering around and interacting with Damia. I'm going to look through my collection and build a Damia list with your strategy as the foundation. I will tag you once it's posted.

Saw Null Brooch I'm going to suggest Manabond and Ensnaring Bridge even though they are pricey they fit so well alongside that funky old card.

The only thing I think you might not be prepared for is a non-activated ability artifact like Ensnaring Bridge. Stony Silence could be replaced with something like Fragmentize instead maybe?

I would probably recommend more removal, so I see you already considered Path to Exile and you might want to consider Abrupt Decay, because rogue artifacts or enchantments can ruin your day (think Ensnaring Bridge). I would also consider a few more one drops in place of the Wingmate Roc possibly, such as Steppe Lynx. You could also make an argument for running Fatal Push in this deck.

Oookayy..... Modern...... I'm gonna hit you with a bunch all at once.

How would you deal with cards like Ensnaring Bridge? Hollow One? Arclight Phoenix? Lantern Control and Hallowed Ones are prominent decks right now for modern. Can you out-race Tron? (assume turn 3 bombs, like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Karn Liberated, and wins on turn 5 or 6) What's you're sideboard for Storm decks? Living End, Death's Shadow, Affinity, Scapeshift, and Jank?

Don't get me wrong, it looks good for casual metas, but in competitive ones then you'll probably run into some issues. You have 25 creatures, and 4 other cards that make creature tokens. Literally just under half your deck is creatures. Specifially going to point out that you have 9 2-drop and 9 3-drop creatures, which I get is a good thing having redundancy, but you might want some answers to my above considerations, and even more niche answers to decks in your sideboard. Blood Moon, Grafdigger's Cage, Fatal Push, Damping Sphere, and Stony Silence are on color and usually are either main board for protection or sideboard for particular match-ups.

Good luck!

Demarge hey sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I've looked into squirrel's nest I wasn't sure it was worth playing but having a "i win the game" sometimes probably can't be bad.

My only issue with divine visitation is if I do end up running the stacks package. Having both Divine Visitation and Ensnaring Bridge causes getting in chip damage to be a lot harder.

Ashnod's in a lot of the games if I don't immediately combo out with it draws tons of hate from the groups I normally play with. However, if i put the staff combo in the deck it will definitely make an appearance.

Sorry about the poor formatting currently on mobile. Thanks for the interest in my deck. It means a lot to me.

I have an Ensnaring Bridge but it's from M25...are you still interested in it? I am interested in your Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and Lyra Dawnbringer

(JSYK, I had a minor Blackout so I couldn't respond earlier. Sorry... :/)

@griffstick: I appreciate your suggestions about this, but I was asking about what cuts I should do to get to 100? Oh, & I'll add Contagion Engine & Inexorable Tide. Even though both things are considered "Win-More" to many. I already have quite some engine anyway; although you are still, regardless, tempting me into that Plaguemaw Beast... XP

BTW, just looked up Smh. Either you're right about a mass Discard deck w/ Tibalt running either Olivia, Mobilized for War, or Malfegor, & I'm as Ambitious as I already know; moreso even now, or the fact I'm running would mean something regarding the 4 words; all Keywords. Well, I'm sorry about such a notion, but there probably is worse out there anyway; Hint: Eldrazi Displacer + Riftsweeper. & the deck isn't even .

But I digress.

This means I have 3 to add, but I added the following anyway:

Djeru, With Eyes Open

Thalia's Lancers

Ajani Vengeant

Ral, Caller of Storms

Angrath, the Flame-Chained

Dovin Baan

Liliana, the Necromancer

Garruk Wildspeaker

Jace, the Living Guildpact

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

Samut, the Tested

Tezzeret, Artifice Master

& some permanent that can also copy Activated Abilities (Since Rowan Kenrith is getting the red light despite Ensnaring Bridge, Meekstone, & even Dueling Grounds...)


Would Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice apply? I could activate his ability to copy Rings of Brighthearth to add an additional activation. Does this work that way? If so, I have 4 cards in addition to cut. What walkers should I cut? I guess Dovin Baan has negligible abilities... So, which to cut to 100? & thanks, griffstick. I'll use at least 3 of what you suggested... :D

I'm actually thinking of updating my 5 color Superfriends deck. However, I actually need two things;

  1. What exactly I should cut.

  2. Since EVERYONE still hates Rowan Kenrith despite me adding Dueling Grounds, Meekstone, & even Ensnaring Bridge to limit attackers & even let me make chump blockers with Sliver Queen for those who can get through, do you know any permanents that can also copy Loyalty Abilities? This would be important as this deck has many unrealized Wincons.

So, what should I cut? Also, do you think Oath of Gideon, Inexorable Tide etc. is good here too? I'd really like your thoughts here, sir. Also, why did you say Smh in my Tibalt related thread earlier? Just Curious...
