Glare of Subdual Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks for showing up! And thanks for the recommendations, definitely!
Glare of Subdual... thinking about it, I think it's better than Light of Day for this deck. Zombies seem to need 15-20 turns to become a really serious problem; I can win before then, or just outnumber them.
I hadn't known about the Cloudstone Curio combo for Stormfront Riders... Looks like it means keeping them in play. For some reason I never remembered that that was possible!
On the one hand, I like the tactical flexibility that Sidar Kondo and Tymna the Weaver give me: the ability to attack planeswalkers, and to top off my hand more or less at will. I need to add a Meekstone or Crackdown if I keep using them -- but I think I can drop at least one of my card-draw cards in that case.
On the other hand, Ghave, Guru of Spores probably means a faster victory, and I was already wondering about adding Ashnod's Altar to the deck. (An entertaining flavor fail: Ashnod's Altar + Farrelite Priest + Sacred Mesa .) Cathars' Crusade has obvious applicability to other decks I'm looking to build, too, and Ghave frees up another slot in the deck.
I think I prefer Sidar Kondo and Tymna for flavor, but I'll definitely experiment with Ghave and Ashnod's Altar; they'd probably make for a stronger deck...

Hi! Thanks for adding to my deck! I hope I can offer helpful advice in return.
Since you're playing tokens and trying to stave off attacks, perhaps Glare of Subdual might help.
A good creature in abzan colors for token making is Ghave, Guru of Spores. His ability can easily go infinite with a combinations of Ashnod's Altar (or simmilar cards) and effects like cathar's cursade.
I see you have Stormfront Riders. Did you know if you have Cloudstone Curio in play, Stormfront Riders causes an infinite loop of tokens entering and vanishing. Add in a card like Cathars' Crusade or Parallel Lives and you get infinite counters or tokens respectively.
Hope that gives you some neat ideas. =)

As for tap abilities I love to abuse cards like Master Healer, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Argothian Elder, etc. Literally any creature that has a semi-relevant tap ability that doesn't cost mana is going to be powerful if you have lots of untap effects. Glare of Subdual, Opposition, and Cryptolith Rite are great boardwide effects as well.

Griffin Protector and Healer of the Pride aren't the greatest of ways to exploit Ghave in my opinion.
Dreampod Druid seems inconsistent with only 3 auras.
Cathars' Crusade > Valor in Akros.
Utopia Mycon is quite possibly the best 'Thallid' ever printed.
Deathreap Ritual is a very solid draw engine with Ghave.
Blah blah blah, Skullclamp is broken blah blah blah

Intangible Virtue (no seriously, why are you not already playing this?)
Sporecrown Thallid (when it becomes legal)
Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII
Slimefoot, the Stowaway (when it becomes legal)
Sprout Swarm (lets you pump out saprolings at a steady pace after you've been boardwiped)
Supply/Demand (ALL THE TOKENS! Even more hilarious with Cryptolith Rite)
Thelonite Hermit (only if you have room)
Scatter the Seeds
Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree
Gavony Township (probably your strongest option for buffing your team)
Glare of Subdual ("Hahaha fuck your attack phase!" is what you get to tell each of your opponents playing aggro or Affinity decks)
I have to agree about Paradox Haze. The card is good, but not in this deck. You aren't doing anything particularly broken with it, other than getting spore counters. It's not like you're using it to abuse Aether Hub. Playing white would be far better as you'd get access to more saproling generators, anthems, and so on.
You also need better removal. I like that you're playing Go for the Throat. Path to Exile and Fatal Push are going to be the bee's knees. Victim of Night, Abrupt Decay, and Tragic Slip are other options.
I like the idea of using the proliferate mechanic to get those spore counters going, but Grim Affliction is rather "meh." Tezzeret's Gambit is about the only other viable option, regardless of whether you decide to play blue. Contagion Clasp is also rather "meh" in Modern.
Keep in mind, you're basically a G/B/x Tokens deck that relies on creatures instead of instants/sorceries to generate tokens. You have a lot of the same weaknesses but less of the strengths of a conventional token deck. Seriously consider checking MtG Goldfish or MtG Top 8 token decks to be sure you're not just playing a worse version of those decks.
