skeletonkey8 on Boogled!!! (Modern Aura Hexproof Deck)

1 week ago

Ok so to start off, darkslayer i find you deck to have lots of unnecessary redundancy. however i will say that Unflinching Courage does work wonders in this deck, I am just really split if it can end a game for you or are you just adding another layer to your bogle (i dont know where i stand on it). as for Kor Spiritdancer i see where you care coming from but i am always nervous to take a hand with only her in it because if my opponent has a Path to Exile/Lightning Bolt/Abrupt Decay your done for. i always want to take a hand with a bogle or scout in it anyways so there are in my opinion very few time that Kor Spiritdancer actually sees lots of good use, that being said she is amazing and if they cant answer her she will win you the game.

to respond to bloodspawn questions, to start off i would like to think of this deck as somewhat toolbox-y and it is very susceptible to very narrow hate (you cant protect against everything). the reason i only run 11 creatures is because this deck takes a very all or nothing approach to playing, you are normally going to mulligan any hand without a bogle or scout in it (normally this only take one mull in my practice) and then your goal from there is simple. so to start off how to deal with cards like you mentioned, Sacrafice- Smallpox, the best way to deal with this is to have a fetchland on the field and then in response fetch your Dryad Arbor then sac it. you mentioned Barter in Blood this card would definitely take me by surprise, however it is a turn 4 drop so hopefully i have either drawn another creature or i have won by this point. Mass removal - Pyroclasm/Slagstorm, if your on the draw to start the game this will make you shed a tear, if you are on the play then pump up your creature fast and then is nothing to worry about, except Supreme Verdict if you see real mass removal you have probably lost the game. Counter spells - Mana Leak, well everything except the land in this deck can be countered so play safe and hold your auras till they tap out or you have lots to play so you can burn through there counter magic with cheap auras and play your bigger one. Deathtouch - Sedge Scorpion, answer = first strike. now to talk about Glaring Spotlight, i dont see alot of decks running this main board, but however your right if i every played against Glaring Spotlight i would probably be in a very bad spot assuming i couldnt kill my opponent before i removed my creature. Again that narrow hate really hurts when you see it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ASKING GREAT QUESTIONS!!! i enjoyed explaining why i picked what i did, and how to answer certain threats against this deck. Thank you.

11 creatures? Feels a little risky with all the ways a hexproof creature can be stopped. Barter in Blood, Slagstorm and Glaring Spotlight. And then there's counterspells and deathtouch blockers as well. You risk losing 7 cards to an apponents Sedge Scorpion.

+1! Thank the gods for Glaring Spotlight. This deck would be a real challenge!

Nice deck, +1 ;)

What do you think about Glaring Spotlight?

Takes hexproof away from your opponents and doesn't need an activation cost.It also can be used a wincon to attack with your well protected and unblockable kittens ;)

Yes the combo is nice if you get it off but every modern player knows that hexproof is a thing and there are multiple ways around it. Hexproof only helps against spells that target. Sweepers like Anger of the Gods see a lot of play and are a common sideboard card even in standard. There are spells that target you instead of the creature such as Away. Then there's always my personal favorite Glaring Spotlight.

Never underestimate the power of cardadvantage. If your opponent can spend one card to get rid of your Daybreak Coronet, Sunbond, Ordeal of Heliod and Invisible Stalker that you used a fifth card to tutor up you will be in big trouble.

If you really feel like the feeling of pulling that four piece combo off is worth the risk, please at least replace Hindering Light since the spells that you need to counter are the ones that does NOT target.

Lastly I'm curious what you plan to do against cards like Leyline of Punishment and Erebos, God of the Dead.

shaistyone on Anafenza Rallies the Weenie Squad (UPDATED)

1 month ago

I have a bunch of thoughts, as weenie aggro is a favorite of mine.

Weathered Wayfarer - helps so much against ramp, plus can get utility lands
Order of Whiteclay - silly for the format
Soul Sculptor - weird card that has immense toolbox value
Emeria, The Sky Ruin - adds late-game value
Absolute Grace / Absolute Law - excellent sideboard options
Path of Bravery - great anthem + lots of lifegain
Silver-Inlaid Dagger - you have a LOT of humans
Glaring Spotlight - unblockable should mean game over for you

Top 3
Reconnaissance - totally busted here, letting you attack wildly with everything every turn without danger of losing creatures and you can untap post-damage to give pseudo-vigilance
Leonin Sun Standard - as close to overrun as white gets and you can use it every turn (add Nykthos for true absurdity)
Ghostway - protects from removal (especially mass removal) and triggers Anafenza as many times as you have creatures

nobu_the_bard on Is Uril un-fun for your ...

1 month ago

The fact that Uril has hexproof isn't even insurmountable these days. Arcane Lighthouse and Glaring Spotlight see a lot of play where I am with decks that consider hexproof a problem.

Anything looks tough until you know its limitations. Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are really, really popular locally lately for example; I'm getting a little weary of opposing three decks that each have one of those and having to figure out if I can operate creatureless.

Eh for red I would like to see more effects like Wild Research and Possibility Storm.

Perhaps a wild research that randomly discards an artifact after tutoring one out? This way Goblin Welder would get another toy in perhaps Legacy and in modern something like Slag Fiend might one day be playable.

Also having something for 1-3 mana that makes random discard not random would be another fun piece for red. I mean right now random discard isn't just risky, it's practically suicidal. The amount of cards required to build a deck where you don't care what you discard is enough to take up every slot and still have only a T4 deck. (As Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded has shown us.)

Having something priced like AEther Vial, Glaring Spotlight and Elixir of Immortality turn random discard into discard of choice would go a long way toward making people willing to use random discard.
