Things I'm consideringEchoing Truth instead of Into the Roil I don't think the deck needs its bounce spell to cantrip, and Echoing Truth would help a ton against token strategies.

Mana Leak has been underperforming. It's useful the first few turns, but it is useless for protecting a lead late game. Maybe replace with some combination of Essence Scatter, Dissolve, and Deprive or Familiar's Ruse

Pyroclasm is terrible against burn, (Monastery Swiftspear, Keldon Marauders, Thermo-Alchemist) and bad against Black Devotion (Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn, Gray Merchant of Asphodel). Maybe some sort of split with Firespout?

Hi Muggins! Anger of the Gods is actually better but too hard to cast. RR is too difficult for this deck. You usually run low on colours with few Stars and Sphere and only 4 Groves. Instead I tried Firespout. It worked well but in the end Pyroclasm is more reliable and two damages is usually enough to kill what you need to survive long enough (like casting in turn 2 to make 2 for 1 trade is usually fine).

Regarding Atarka's Command, the card is even harder to cast as RG and do not really provide any advantages. Putting a land into play is fine but I would better be able to fetch the one I need in my deck for 1G with Sylvan Scrying.

I'm very happy you like the deck, hope you would also enjoy playing it!

Sargeras on Tron for Poor Orphans

I like the concept, so +1. I have some suggestions.

  1. Perilous Vault is the closest thing you can get to Oblivion Stone without paying an arm and a leg, and would probably work out great as a one-of in the mainboard. But if not it's great for sideboards too against many of the decks this deck can struggle against.

  2. I'd play Nature's Claim over Naturalize in the sideboard. The 4 life may seem like a drawback, but you are playing tron, which is the best deck in the format at top-decking finishers, which means 4 life doesn't really matter in the long run. The real reason is so you can get rid of cards like Stony Silence when you are on the draw, and not have to worry about them.

  3. Since Platinum Angel is only about $3, I think it would make a great one-of addition to the mainboard since it requires your opponents to deal with it. Also, Thopter Assembly is great at gumming up the board with Flyers.

  4. I don't know if its needed, but Firespout as the traditional sweeper played in tron, and its still very cheap.

  5. Karplusan Forest, got a needed reprint and is now only $2.5, although I'm unsure if you need it with your current set up.

  6. Banefire is 40 cents more expensive then blaze, and is uncounterable if X is 5 or more.

Sargeras Thanks for the help, I'm gonna going to add another Pyroclasm,2 copies of Firespout or Slagstorm, haven't decided on that one yet. So that would pretty much build the anti-aggro part and then I'm thinking that i put 4x Dispel and instead of AEtherling I'll put in 2x Magma Jet to the sideboard so I have some more burn againts slower decks. Other than that I'll keep the Vandalblast in the maybe board since I haven't played againts artifact deck yet. And I'll finish the sideboard with Echoing Truth.

Thanks for the help again, if you think of something more I would appriciate it.

  1. If aggro is a huge problem, I'd say you best options are Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods, Slagstorm, Kozilek's Return, and if you really want to be sneaky, you can play Firespout (because it won't kill your fliers) and it acts like a Slagstorm on an opponent's board! Since you'd likely be more of the control deck game 2 playing a lot fo these would probably give you enough time to cast a finisher and win.

  2. If you are playing anything other then aggro, you may want to board in cards like Negate and Dispel for longer games against control/combo decks.

  3. You might want to play the card known as Izzet Staticaster, as it can deal with tokens and lots of small creatures.

  4. Since you play red, land destruction spells like Stone Rain and Molten Rain may be relevant.

  5. Vandalblast & Shatterstorm are both great at dealing with artifacts.

  6. I've seen many lists run Echoing Truth as a sort of "catch-all" spell, so that they can deal with things like artifacts or enchantments, as well as certain combos/cards. Ratchet Bomb is also good at doing this.

If you need anymore help, feel free to let me know!

wylie72,
Welcome back to Modern!

I'm very new to Ponza (I'm MUCH more of an Infect player), so please take these comments with some healthy skepticism! There are (at least) two Merfolk decks at my second-favorite LGS but I have yet to play either. But I've been reading up/planning for the match-up, so here are some thoughts:

Bottom line: If I was boarding your deck against Fish, I'd try ...

Draw well!

@Wyrmweird: What's your sideboard look like? I stuck 2 Overgrown Tombs in mine, with some Abrupt Decays and Dismembers. That helped a lot when dealing with not just flying, but also a wider variety of threats.

I've also thought about using Hurricane. Not only can you wipe the entire field of fliers, you can also use it as a finisher on your opponent. Corrosive Gale/Firespout/Skyreaping/Windstorm are the other wrath effects. There's also the Hurricane effects on things like Tornado Elemental.

Bow of Nylea is another option, especially since it does so much stuff.

Otherwise, you can go with Plummet, Leaf Arrow, Take Down, Wing Puncture, or Aerial Volley.

I'm partial to using a creature, though. It means you can get it by using Summoner's Pact, Lead the Stampede, etc. Silklash Spider, Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Cloudthresher, and Tornado Elemental are what exist in Modern to my knowledge.

Jagged-Scar Archers is also bonkers, but it needs to tap in order to do its thing. Probably best if you're using Thousand-Year Elixir.
