Field of Ruin Discussion

Aaah ok a mill deck;)

So the basic principle is the same. You dont attack the opponents life total but their library though. That means that you have do "deal" 52 instead of 20 damage so your spells have to mill 2,5 as much as your typical burnspell deals damage.

The first think you need to do is again to play more lands. You need some more than in burn so 22 is a nice place to be. Field of Ruin is sweet because you can disrupt the opponents mana and also trigger archieve trap. Since you are a two color deck you want some more nonbasic lands for fixing.

You dont want any creatures (besides the crab) because attacking is not your game plan.

You want some cards that actually control what the opponent does.

And you want some maindeck ways to deny your opponent cards that youve but in his yard;)

A sideboard would be good as well

Since im not really an expert here im simply gonna link an example list here

If you have specific questions i might be able to answer them

Well, first of all I'm glad you like the deck's idea and thanks for all the great suggestions you gave.

Now, yeah, probably Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds could be moved in sideboard. The fact that made me think they would be usefull is that tons of decks play cards as Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin and this could be a problem if I want to win due to Maze's End

Tolaria West is a good card, but do I really need it? I mean, I have 4x Ancient Stirrings, 4x Gatecreeper Vine and 4x Primeval Titan, do I really need another land tutor?

By the way, Sylvan Awakening (maybe better than Natural Affinity cause it gives indestructible and haste), Bojuka Bog and Courser of Kruphix are great suggestions, that will definitely be added to the deck

Why not play any Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin?

Yeah izzet is great :D I like Abrade and I tought about bringing in some more, but I think Anger of the Gods could be an alternative, too. Mana Leak has its weakness in the late game, like we all know, and because of this reason I think that more than 2 of them are not an good idea in my list. I love Cryptic Serpent too and I'm playing it in my Mono Blue Control - Ultra Budget. I will give it a try in this list, too, but I think I'll keep it in the other build. Field of Ruin will be added!

I can understand that you don't want to cast anything in this deck, but I think there is one thing you need to cast and that is some form of card draw. Exiling cards from your hand to pay the cost is ok, if you have enough cards in your hand. I was playing something similar to this casually, but at a minimum Mishra's Bauble should be included, probably Howling Mine. I'd agree with pandith and Methylase that you need more land too, why not run Mirrorpool? You have plenty of colourless sources, more so if you swap Dryad Arbor for the already suggested Mutavault (good call!) and being able to copy Shining Shoal or Soul Spike could get you over the line... You may need to exile a card you actually want to play, so maybe Pull from Eternity, if you add some white sources? On the same basis, you may lose one of your lands to Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, it might make sense to have a Wastes if you want to stay colourless.

Hope this is of some help (shameless plug, my casual modern deck The best cost is free) and good luck with your brew. Have a +1 as looking at this gave me some extra ideas...

Demarge on Knights of the Round Table

Phyrexian Metamorph is the most functional clone effect to double on exemplars. Mirran Crusader is by far the most powerful knight to grace mono white. Valiant Knight is rather powerful for a knight lord Benalish Marshal is rather good as an anthem on a creature. Though your knights might want to ally with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to better survive w/u control, Field of Ruin is also rather nice to survive tron decks. Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are white's biggest contributions next to path for modern, not having them in a sideboard is not too good an idea.

hmm a list with the rarely remembered 3x copies combo of Fiend Hunter and/or Restoration Angel, (fiend hunter holds down either another hunter or an angel, then an angel or hunter hits that hunter for the loop), you could put any soul sister or other etb matters abilities to abuse it. (or Seraph Sanctuary)

if you run some colorless utility lands, (Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter are popular to fight tron, which looks to be a really tough matchup for this deck) Moorland Haunt is probably the most budget I can think of, you can run Eldrazi Displacer over the navigator which is massively cheaper on a mana base (I also suggest cutting the leviathans for the same reason, in any modern game vs any quarter decent deck the leviathan is never getting cast without you already having won the game) and is a lot less restrictive in which target you can flicker with it (you can even use it defensively).

Oh Guildmages' Forum could be perfect for a colorless land with colored mana option with a utility (that is budget). Also Irrigated Farmland is dirt cheap dual land option as well that can even interact with sun titan I would suggest using those over the tapped dual lands (still weird cove is common and river was uncommon in that commander set...) you add dimes to the budget for more effective lands.

hmm now that I look at it you could probably cut blue all together Militia Bugler and Blade Splicer are both fairly good creatures and you could just increase the count of the various white creatures, Thraben Inspector is also a rather good 1 drop. I think Kitchen Finks got a massive price drop (UMA reprint), Gideon's Lawkeeper is also very similar functioning to a bounce creature, Mangara of Corondor is also rather good with flicker effects.

I should stop now... mostly skimming around death and taxes atm anyway now that I think about it.
