Logics on Summoning Sultai (Value Heartless Summoning)

6 days ago

lagotripha - Villainous Wealth has 0 synergy with what the deck is trying to do, we're trying to cheat costs on creatures more than straight ramping. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen tends to win us the game on the spot if we untap with him. Depending on our board sometimes he wins just with his landfall ability the turn he's played. Avenger of Zendikar has horrible synergy with our key card, Heartless Summoning, and Herald of Leshrac is much too slow for 7 mana. Reap Intellect runs into the same problem as Villainous Wealth. We're not actually ramping, we're just cheating the cost of creatures, so it is extremely slow and too weak for modern in general. I appreciate the feedback though :)

ijustaguy - Rhonas the Indomitable is great with The Gitrog Monster, but it has no synergy with the land drops, and it's really only good with my frog friend. As for Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, that's a card I might consider, although it feels like it's probably too slow. Khalni Heart Expedition is another interesting one, and with the amount of fetches we run, it could be a good consideration. It fits into the same spot on the curve as Heartless Summoning which is very nice.

Heartless Summoning is definitely a thing if you can manage 4 color.

If all else fails or if you want to stay in Jeskai, things like Azorius Signet are legit. Colorless mana ramp is an easy way to get Narset out earlier.

Yes. but with Heartless Summoning turn 2 Admonition Angel only costs 4.landfall activates each turn. Vindicate only once. And she is not legendary meaning landfall ability triggers each separately.

additionally with Admonition Angel and Ghost Quarter you can also protect your own creatures from wrath effects.

With Lyra Dawnbringer you can sort out Whip of Erebos

Budget sacrifice brews are kinda cool.

Abusing artifact mechanics tends to be more effective due to the low price of Atog, Ravenous Intruder,Slag Fiend and Pia's Revolution- give this list a try Budget B/R sacrifice which contains a mess of untested options.

It fares badly with modern decks sideboarding against affinity, and the affinity matchup isn't great, but if you're prepared to pick up a set of Heartless Summoning you can start turning it into some spicy combo brews.

RazortoothMtg on Play from Graveyard in Modern?

You might have better luck ditching the Orcish Vandal plan and instead just casting Gravecrawler or Squee, the Immortal over and over again to trigger Burning Vengenace, possibly with a sac outlet like Barrage of Expendables to deal more damage (probably a better sac outlet, couldn't think of one though). Alternatively, as said by TheDuggernaught, Havengul Lich + Heartless Summoning +Priest of Urabrask/Perilous Myr is infinite. Priest requires a Vengenace, Impact Tremors, or infinite mana dump to actually win though.

Havengul Lich? Combos with Heartless Summoning and Priest of Urabrask. Also works well with Perilous Myr, and Devil's Play. That is a pretty old school combo, though.

Why no Heartless Summoning with Perilous Myr it's a great counter to swarm tactics? With the Black mana you could Tutor for any gaps in your offence.
