Glimmervoid Discussion

Add 4x Blinkmoth Nexus and 1x Signal Pest. Cut one of each basic land and either the Darkslick Shores or Spirebluff Canal, also cut the fourth Memnite. The sideboard is iffy and not sure on what to suggest based on my limited knowledge of playing affinity. If you already own 2x Mox Opals, then I would focus your next upgrade to the deck would be buying the Glimmervoids that would help fix you mana requirements.

No, it's not actually. The deck is made 100000000000x worse without its key cards because they are so important to your game plan. Mox Opal is absolutely necessary for the explosive starts where you play a turn 1 Ravager or Overseer, Arcbound Ravager is by far the best creature in the deck and a key part of your plan when the game goes long, Inkmoth Nexus is an important win con with Cranial Plating, Steel Overseer, and Arcbound Ravager to give it several +1 counters, and Glimmervoid is an essential card for casting colored cards game 1 and for having a sideboard games 2 and 3. The reason why, say, Jund works as a budget deck is because it's not a tightly focused synergy deck that needs all its cards to work. You can still play alternative cards that work decently well without messing up your core game plan. For example, you can play Scavenging Ooze instead of Tarmogoyf and you're just playing a slightly worse 2 drop. You can play more removal spells or whatever instead of Liliana of the Veil and you're just lacking in versatility and power. You can play Khans fetches instead of Verdant Catacombs and you're just making your manabase less consistent. None of those decisions ruin your core game plan, because Jund isn't a tight synergy-based deck that's super fragile otherwise. Affinity is a tight, synergy-based aggro deck that needs all its cards to function.

I really love this list. I've been looking for an excuse to pick up a playset of Arcbound Ravagers. This might be it.

What are your thoughts on Spire of Industry vs Glimmervoid?

sylvannos A lot of people are going 2 Glimmervoid 2 Spire of Industry because Spire doesn't get shafted by boardwipes like Glimmervoid does.

Do you even have room for the extra gold lands? Your mana base should be:

4x Blinkmoth Nexus
4x Inkmoth Nexus
4x Darksteel Citadel
1+ basic land
3-4x Glimmervoid

After that, you really don't have room because that's at least 16 lands, plus Mox Opals.

I definitely would not play Mana Confluence, nor would I go for zero Spire of Industry. I think Spire being better on mulligans makes it worthwhile. Maybe split it 2-2 with Glimmervoid and see what you like from there.

I've also heard good things about Inventors' Fair, that could be a worthwhile inclusion as well if you are relatively low on colored spells.

I posted this thread in the modern help forum. This is modern Affinity.

Without artifacts in play, Glimmervoid leaves play, Mana Confluence hurts me but provides mana of any color, and Spire of Industry provides colorless mana.

The issue is whether I'd rather take 1 damage or tap for colorless when there are no artifacts in play. I feel as if Spire of Industry is a better option, but I'm honestly not sure. How often would colored mana be needed after my board is wiped or hasn't yet been developed. In my experience it happens so rarely it's difficult to judge.

How confident are you that Glimmervoid won't backfire? Affinity plays a lot more cmc0 and cmc1 artifacts, and even that deck occasionally has trouble with early removal also killing Glimmervoid.
