Hallowed Fountain Discussion

Legendary_penguin_of_death on [Standard] [GRN] Esper Control

3 days ago

Oh and one other thing, I think field of ruin is a bit too greedy I would play a single Meandering River. I think Field of Ruin will be perfectly fine after we get Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine but till then I would just keep to hitting your colors in the mana base especially since you are running settles and vraska’s contempt’s in the same deck. Also casting sinister sabotage off of mission briefing can strain the mana base so between those three things I think there is good reason to not run colorless lands. It’s interesting that you decided to run Evolving Wilds over the slow duals. I get that it allows checks to enter untapped but what’s I’m curious to know what your reasoning behind this is.

multimedia on Esper Angels

4 days ago

Hey, how much have you playtested? I ask because white is the most important color if you want to play Angels and it has the least amount of sources (12) in the manabase. Needing for Resplendent and Lyra who are together the Angel engine you'll want more than 12 sources of white.

It's difficult to support cards with a playable Esper manabase for Guilds of Ravnica Standard you really need Hallowed Fountain or Godless Shrine, but won't get these lands until Jan 2019. Consider Anticipate? It lets you look at three cards and choose one of them. This gives you more selection to help to find lands. The combination of 4x Opt and 3-4x Anticipate can give you enough library selection to help to find white lands as well as set-up/find the Angel you need. Consider cutting Knight of Grace for Anticipate?

Grace and Malice is a great team, but Grace is mediocre without Malice because the only card that can pump him here is Malice. Malice on the other hand is good because he can be pumped by the Angels. I suggest putting Grace in the sideboard.


Consider Jeskai? Jeskai lets you play the new Aurelia (Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice) another Angel as well as Teferi and Search. A Jeskai manabase can more easily support because you can play 4x Sacred Foundry, 4x Clifftop Retreat and 4x Glacial Fortress and 4x Plains giving you 16 sources of white. It also gives you 8x Shock lands which can turn on all the Check lands making a three color manabase smooth in game play. Shards (Grixis and Naya) and wedges (Jeskai, Sultai, Abzan) can use two different Shock lands in the manabases making these color combinations much better with Check lands. Shards and wedges that can only use one Shock land (Esper, Jund, Bant, Mardu, Temur) are less favorable for upcoming Standard.

An 26 land Jeskai example (16 white, 13 blue, 16 red):

With Jeskai and red you could play Boros Locket as ramp (turn four Lyra/sac it later on in the game to draw cards), Lava Coil as removal that exiles and Deafening Clarion as a three drop board wipe against aggro that can also be a nonLyra way to give Angels lifelink.

Good luck with your deck.


Cloudius on Bruna the 女神

6 days ago

Continuing from above...

Counterspells

Given Bruna's high CMC you're usually tapped out after casting her. I'd recommend some of the cards below to ensure you get to attack with her next turn.

Force of Will

Pact of Negation

Misdirection

Foil

Thwart

Daze

All the above have alternate ways to cast them even when you're tapped out.

Lands

I'd replace all the lands that enters the battlefield tapped with those that enters untapped.

Cavern of Souls ensures Bruna can't be countered.

Flooded Strand

Hallowed Fountain will be reprinted soon along with the other fetches so it's timely to grab one for cheap!

Mystic Gate

Ancient Tomb is a ramp too, giving you for 2 life. I'd play this over Temple of the False God.

You can also consider the relevant Panoramas. Bant Panorama and Esper Panorama fetch both island and plains. It's slightly more versatile than Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds as the former an be tapped for and crafted only when we need that colored source. The trade off is of course the activation cost.

Hope you find my suggestions useful!

Durkle on U-Control

Blue mages unite.

So there's a couple things you should consider when making a list like this. The biggest thing is: Why are we playing mono blue and not splashing a color? What does mono blue let us do that we couldn't otherwise do with a splash? Currently you don't have a very good answer to that question, honestly. You're not actively benefiting from only playing 1 color, you're just nerfing yourself by limiting your options to interact.

But.

There are a couple things you can do to make use of mono blue cards and mono islands. The first is making use of several copies of Disrupting Shoal. HIGHLY recommend this one. Excellent excellent card, but doesn't really have a home in modern. It fits best into this kind of shell naturally. Really catches people off guard.

The second thing is playing a couple copies of Vedalken Shackles. Honestly not the best suited card in modern right now (what with k commands and crazy fast clocks) but still a super solid card, at least deserves a place in the sideboard probably against goyf decks and such.

Tempest Djinn is also kind sweet as a finisher, but it's super unproven and probably too clunky.

..I'm about to just list off a bunch of random suggestions, feel free to ignore whichever ones you don't like.

I think Ancestral Visions is a trap in this deck. At least main. As a 4 of. At the end of the day, this is a tempo deck, and WILL struggle late game against decks that play more inherently powerful cards, so all this card is doing is trying to slow the bleeding. It's a very weak turn 1 play when you could be casting a delver or setting up with a serum visions or holding up spell snare, and it's an absolutely atrocious topdeck. I'd avoid this one in here. Just my own two cents.

Spreading Seas is a good card, but I don't like 4. They makes delvers harder to flip and you usually have to commit to tapping out on turn 2 to make the best use of them, which I personally don't like. Wouldn't be the worst thing ever to keep them, but its not like its filling the same role that it is in merfolk, where it gives your guys evasion and you can still be playing guys with vial while you tap out to cast spreading seas.

Psionic Blast is worth a consideration. Colorshifted Char is pretty sweet, and gives you some good interaction / game-ending potential. Alternatively I think even a Dismember or two would be kinda nice.

Embracing tempo, Vapor Snag is a card you probably want. It's like extra copies of remand but it's 1 mana, only works on creatures, and pings them instead of drawing. Super solid. Can also be used to save your own guys in a pinch.

Every creature you have right now is a wizard. You could consider trying Wizard's Retort and just getting to play the card Counterspell in modern. You might want to play a few more wizards to enable this plan, in which case you could consider playing Mutavault as a manland, and then stuff like maybe Nimble Obstructionist or even Baral, Chief of Compliance to give you a few more wizards. Baral is actually kinda sweet, he lets you cast Cryptic Command on turn 3, and then you even get to loot off of him.

Commandeer is absolutely hilarious in the sideboard. I know it looks like a weird edh staple or something, but try laughing at it when you steal a Karn and then exile their tron land with it. Absolutely silly card, definitely worth a slot or two imo.

Since you're playing fetches and stuff anyway to help enable JtMS, I feel like splashing a single Hallowed Fountain could actually be very nice. Gives you access to things like Stony Silence and Geist of Saint Traft postboard, which can give you a chance in your bad matchups. You could play Rest in Peace over relic as well.

And uh... I think that's all I've got. Hopefully there's some helpful stuff in there. Best of luck my blue brother

TypicalTimmy on Land destruction: taboo or legit ...

1 week ago

The problem with LD (Land Destruction) decks is that a they are slow. painfully slow.

I run one in Modern. Rakdos () LD.

You limit yourself to , which is a powerful color combination, but the issue here is you can win so much faster using those colors.

The majority of LD spells in red cost 4. This means you aren't doing anything until T4.

Rakdos has a serious lack of ramp. Sure, there ARE cards that are "technically ramp", but traditionally you are wanting to increase your available mana consistently every turn, not bring out Rakdos Keyrune on T3 and have MAYBE 5 mana on T4, assuming you hit all land drops each turn.

Keep in mind that even if you ARE hitting lands 4 turns in a row, in Rakdos that's not optimal. You want swift, cheap spells. Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push and Terminate. Not land after land after land.

Bleh.

Having said that, there are great ramp cards available. Infernal Plunge, Generator Servant, Koth of the Hammer, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Iron Myr, Leaden Myr, Plague Myr, Palladium Myr... But again, you detract from your LD spells. The further you push back your goal, the further ahead your opponent gets.

Uuuugh... On a phone. Fml

NOW we get to the problems. In Modern, games are fast. Really fast. Pushing out a game 5 - 7 turns is not ideal when you can design to win on T1. Casually you're golden. FNM is a toss up. Competitively? Good luck.

This is why Blood Moon, and in some decks Alpine Moon are so important. They CONTROL the lands, not remove them. If you want to optimize LD, look for cards that destroy lands as a secondary effect, such as Ghost Quarters, Field of Ruin, and Encroaching Wastes. -- The problem here now is you fill your deck with colorless lands, and you destroy your land base while giving your opponent basic lands of their choice (mostly).

Ugh, this was a poor decision to type it all out on my phone...

Okay. So let's ask a question: Why Rakdos?

There's a surprisingly good amount of land destruction spells in Modern and in Red (34 in Sorcery) and the cheapest are Cryoclasm, Molten Rain, Stone Rain, and Peak Eruption. Note that with Cryo and Peak, you don't need to target basics. You can target lands such as Hallowed Fountain and Irrigated Farmland, or combine Peak Eruption with Blood Moon.

In black, there's really just Rain of Tears, if you're trying to keep it all under CMC < 4.

You'll also want to recycle spells. Good way to do this is Charmbreaker Devils, but at 5 CMC there are better spells. I like to run him because he let's me get back LD spells every turn. If they don't have 1-Drop removals like Path to Exile, they are F-'ed. I run minimal removal and lots of LD, so even if I don't topdeck into one I can always get one back for free.

Now it is true that green has LD as well. Acidic Slime, Creeping Mold, Reap and Sow, Spreading Algae, but again they are either slow and require ramp or are very specific in nature.

The more colors you add, the more fixing you need, and the less specialized your deck is.

That's why we don't run green. Stick to res as your main color with black support.

I'd focus on red LD sorcerys, and black instant creature removal for cheap, such as Fatal Push and Terminate.

Overwhelm with cheap 1/1s like Goblins, and pick cards with huge bang for your buck. Kiln Fiend and Monastery Mentor are perfect. Goblin Guide hurts you here as he is doing what you don't want - Getting them more lands.

Goblin Offensive and Krenko's Command are good. Two 1/1s for 2 CMC? Decent.

Overwhelm and go wide. It's cheaper and saves you Mana for LD.

If you want and can work it in, Reverberate and Increasing Vengeance copy spells so you can hit twice in one turn.

I'm not going to build a deck for you, but I hope I helped a lot.

It's a legit strategy, but needs to be precisely honed and even than may be too slow.

Control / removal is better than LD, but LD does work. Modern prides itself on non-basic lands.

That's where you attack.

As for EDH? Against 3 other opponents, you'll be so vastly overwhelmed it's not even worth it.

DlCK on Semi-Competitive Jodah, Archmage Eternal

1 week ago

This deck is nearly perfect, but there's just a few areas of weakness that demand immediate attention.

First off, I would remove the following cards: Abrupt Decay, Angel's Grace, Anguished Unmaking, Animate Dead, Arcane Denial, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Badlands, Bayou, Birds of Paradise, Blood Crypt, Bloodstained Mire, Brainstorm, Breeding Pool, Chromatic Lantern, Chrome Mox, City of Brass, Command Tower, Cultivate, Cyclonic Rift, Dance of the Dead, Deathrite Shaman, Decree of Pain, Delay, Demonic Tutor, Enter the Infinite, Exploration, Farseek, Fellwar Stone, Fist of Suns, Flooded Strand, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, In Garruk's Wake, Intuition, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jodah, Archmage Eternal, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Laboratory Maniac, Lotus Cobra, Maelstrom Wanderer, Mana Confluence, Mana Crypt, Marsh Flats, Merciless Eviction, Misty Rainforest, Mox Diamond, Myojin of Night's Reach, Myojin of Seeing Winds, Mystic Remora, Mystical Tutor, Nature's Claim, Nature's Lore, Negate, Omniscience, Oracle of Mul Daya, Overgrown Tomb, Painful Truths, Polluted Delta, Praetor's Counsel, Progenitus, Rhystic Study, Rise of the Dark Realms, Savannah, Scalding Tarn, Scrubland, Sensei's Divining Top, Show and Tell, Skyshroud Claim, Sol Ring, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Storm Herd, Survival of the Fittest, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Sylvan Library, Taiga, Tainted Pact, Temple Garden, Terastodon, Three Visits, Time Stretch, Toxic Deluge, Tropical Island, Tundra, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Underground Sea, Vampiric Tutor, Verdant Catacombs, Volcanic Island, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Watery Grave, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, and Zacama, Primal Calamity.

There's really nothing you could replace these cards with that would make this deck competitive, so I'd recommend just stopping here. Good work.

Cereal_Killer on Daxos of Meletis

1 week ago

Since your idea is to beat your opponents with your commander, why don't you make it a bit more voltron with cards like:

Auramancer

Mother of Runes

Aqueous Form

Field of Dreams

Hyena Umbra

Steel of the Godhead

Sword of Feast and Famine

Lantern of Insight

For board swipe, counters and draw cards:

Cyclonic Rift

Disallow

Render Silent

Unexpectedly Absent (cause you put the card you want to steal on top of it's owner's library just paying two mana and chosing X = 0)

Ponder

Preordain

Settle the Wreckage

Sensei's Divining Top

For some good lands I'd suggest:

Academy Ruins

Celestial Colonnade

Ghost Quarter

Field of Ruin

Strip Mine

Hallowed Fountain

Mystic Gate

Nimbus Maze

Ancient Tomb

Command Beacon
