Horizon Canopy Discussion
2 days ago
Will the curve be a problem? You have 4 2-drops and 18 3-drops. Granted, your T1 mana dork will allow you to make your 3-drops on T2. (Haven't looked closely at the list this deck is based on yet)

@TheRedKnight yeah, Elephants prefer to stick close to the ground it seems instead of bouncing every-which-way. I was thinking about throwing in one of my copies of Crucible of Worlds i haven't been using but it only really allows me to continuously Horizon Canopy and regain tempo from like Rogue Elephant I tend to get alot if not most of my lands out anyways despite that and draw 2 to 3 cards a turn so I'm not too worried and feel it would just be a dead card. Heroic Intervention has been doing pretty solid work as well. But more effects like that would be nice for consistency sake.

Thanks for the suggestions!

First one that I think should definitely be implemented is Horizon Canopy. If you get ahead early, you're not going to need lands later. Filtering it out for draws is super effective and definitely worth it. Cavern of Souls needs to be one of the lands too. I'd at least run two. At a high competitive level, which seems to be what you're doing with this, Cavern of Souls is really important.
Second recommendation would to consider Lead the Stampede for the mainboard, or at least the sideboard. It's really effective against board sweeps, or if you get very ahead early and you're able to dump your hand by turn two. It basically refills you with more gas. Overall looks fine though.
Personally I wouldn't have selfless spirit mainboard - it wastes a slot that can go towards playing aggressive in game one. And as well, having three Ezuri, Renegade Leader plus a Craterhoof Behemoth seems a little much. Maybe two Ezuri's, one Craterhoof, or just three Ezuri.
Just some suggestions! :)

I would consider adding Horizon Canopy over Gavony Township, if not for the cycling effect but that Township is quite slow and not really a great effect, imo. Maybe replace Mana Tithe with Porphyry Nodes? Maybe Suppression Field?

You're welcome. I really like Heroic as a mechanic back when it was in Standard. However, a deck based on Heroic does run into several problems, like drawing spells when there are no creatures on board, not drawing enough spells to complement the creatures, running out of gas beyond Turn 5, etc. That was why I thought spells that can be cast more than once (Rebound, Flashback), and creatures that generate creatures (Vanguard of Brimaz, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Monastery Mentor, Young Pyromancer) are key to this type of deck. A go-wide strategy is good because we have ways to pump the whole board, with Phalanx Leader and Anax and Cymede.
Therefore, my own suggested list is this: 4 each of Monastery Swiftspear, Favored Hoplite, Young Pyromancer, Phalanx Leader, 2 Anax and Cymede and 3 split among Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Monastery Mentor (21 creatures); 4 each of Gods Willing, Emerge Unscathed, Blossoming Defense, Pit Fight (I think we do need some mainboard removal), and 3 Warriors' Lesson (19 spells); 10 fetchlands (4 Windswept Heath, 4 Arid Mesa, 2 Wooded Foothills), 4 basics (2 Plains, 1 Forest, 1 Mountain), 5 shocks (2 Temple Garden, 2 Sacred Foundry, 1 Stomping Ground) and a Horizon Canopy (20 lands). I upped the fetch count because I think the maximum number of lands we ever need is about 4 or thereabouts.
This is all theorycrafting though. I have not actually tested a deck like this in Modern before. Do let us know what your testing results are.

The complete card list of this set has been revealed!
I am displeased that the majority of this set is newer cards, but there are some very nice reprints; in particular, I like the reprints of Archangel of Thune and Sheoldred, Whispering One, both of whom I need for EDH decks that I am buildings. The new artwork on the Kamigawa dragons as well as Bladewing the Risen is very nice, but I do not understand why Bladewing was demoted to an uncommon.
The reprints of the dual lands from Future Sight are very nice, but I dislike how only Horizon Canopy has new artwork, since I have four copies of Nimbus Maze in my blue/white deck,and would like to be able to have a variety of artwork for them. Hopefully, at some point in the future, the other filter lands shall be reprinted at some point and there shall be a complete cycle for Nimbus Maze.
I dearly wish that both Serra Angel and Swords to Plowshares had been given new artwork, but all the other awesome new art makes up for that, especially Disenchant and Condescend, both of which I have in various decks of mine.
It will not be easy to wait until November for this product, but I am very excited to know that it contains so many great cards. Is anyone else excited for this product?
