Fog Bank Discussion
8 hours ago
Since the secondary ability of Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs only works with deserts and I'm trying to modernize this deck, I found some potential replacements, as there's no point in including slow lands for a single creature.
- Steel Wall
- Oona's Gatewarden
- Perimeter Captain
- Order of the Stars
- Consulate Skygate
- Wall of Tanglecord
- Cathedral Membrane
- Thing in the Ice Flip
- Returned Phalanx
- Murmuring Phantasm
- Ludevic's Test Subject Flip
- Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch
- Jeskai Barricade
- Geist of the Lonely Vigil
- Fog Bank
- Angelic Wall
- Vertigo Spawn
- Wall of Omens
- Wall of Essence
I really like Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch because of how bouncing enemy threats is a big theme of this deck, but I could also see Thing in the Ice Flip being a replacement for both Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs as well as Striped Riverwinder though it doesn't get Hexproof. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Unless the opponent has a Lightning Bolt, unfortunately it can't deal with that

I personally don't like going tri-color, I feel as if you lose a lot of the consistency when you do that. Our friend group also usually shuns infinite combos so I don't think I would use the Freed from the Real + Axebane Guardian (although I really want to use that combo). But Drift of Phantasms, Fog Bank, and Ludevic's Test Subject Flip are good enough on their own to warrant blue. I may remove the red seeing as those three cards add more protection and consistency and I believe that straight damage cards are never that fun to play with. Thank you for the suggestions!

ToolmasterOfBrainerd When I playtested this, War Tax was very useful. But of course that depends from so many factors. The same is true for Fog Bank but maybe Sun Droplet could help out against creature heavy decks. Do you have experiences with Delver of Secrets Flip? Does this creature support an aggro strategy? I prefer to run black instead of White because of Extirpate and some discard effects but then I have the balancing problem with my mana I think. The good news is, no one in my playgroup play True-Name Nemesis haha. They are mostly playing decks like Ally, Bird or Soldier tribals or ability based decks like undying or with energy counter and I thought that Fog Bank or similar cards could be efficient permanents against such decks.

War Tax doesn't fit in the deck at all imo. You already need to spend a lot of mana on Isochron Scepter every turn, so another mana sink doesn't help you much. Similarly Fog Bank is just a removal magnet and can't block True-Name Nemesis. Every legacy deck will have either true-name to get around it, jitte/sofi to kill it, or they don't need combat to kill you. Or they're elves and will kill you through combat anyway.
Splashing white for Terminus and Monastery Mentor would be the best thing to do, but that would get really expensive, so the better answer might be Thing in the Ice Flip aggro as a backup plan. You still get screwed by True-Name Nemesis but you'd have a pretty good chance at winning combo matchups. You could even go as far as to sideboard 4 Delver of Secrets Flip for a surprise creature aggro plan in game 2. That may or may not work. Not sure.

I think I'd do tri-color but only a small amount of red
4x Axebane Guardian 2x Doorkeeper 3-4x Drift of Phantasms (to fetch axebane or freed from the real) 4x Fog Bank 2x Sylvan Caryatid 4x Gatecreeper Vine (fetch lands) 2x Ludevic's Test Subject Flip 4x Overgrown Battlement 2x Vent Sentinel
But thats just a rough idea. Sorry I couldn't reply sooner, been busy the last few days. Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for the comments guys, awesome to see that people actually comment on a deck on this site.
The deck got changed to legacy, that was a mistake from my side.
Mortuary Mire Seems quite nice and inexpensive, gotta add 4 of those :)
So what do you guys think of the small zombie theme? I like the idea that they buff each other, but I'm in doubt if it would be better to remove those zombies and add 4 Tidehollow Strix and 4 Vampire Nighthawk, to get some more death touch and lifelink? The overall goal of the deck is to sit a bit back and handle early tough creatures with Fog Bank and threaten their creatures with death touch and then later use Control Magic to take their really strong overpowered creatures. We normally play casual games 4+ guys and their is often 1 angel deck and 1 green aggro deck.
