So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!

ninjaclevs13 on Cards to Cut for my ...

Funny, I was just looking through my Kruphix deck to see what I could change. In fact, my deck is spread out in front of me right now. I've played quite a few games with it, but I still think it could use some fine-tuning.

What's the purpose of the deck? Mine is more of a control-the-early-game-and-ramp-up-later-to-store-a-ton-of-mana-with-Kruphix-and-kill-someone-with-Blue Sun's Zenith. I also have a few combos in there. Your deck seems to be more of a goodstuff deck, with victory coming through sheer value in the quality of the cards.

First off, the number of lands you have is good. Don't take the easy road out and just say "eh, I'll just take out some lands." It will come back later to bite you.

Counterspells are good, and my deck has plenty of them (around 10 I think), but I think yours has a bit too many. The ones I would take out are Mana Leak (3 mana isn't really relevant in EDH), Condescend, Dissolve (scrying isn't particularly relevant), and either Essence Scatter or Exclude (you don't really need that effect, if at all).

I really like effects on creatures, especially if you have recursion like Artisan of Kozilek. So, I like creatures like Trygon Predator and Mystic Snake. The creatures I don't really like are Horizon Chimera (it doesn't do much), and Murkfiend Liege (other than Arcanis the Omnipotent, the untap ability doesn't have much synergy).

For sorceries, I like the big spells - like Beacon of Tomorrows and Praetor's Counsel - because you hopefully have tons of mana with Kruphix. I don't really like Part the Waterveil (Beacon is almost always better) or Preordain - Brainstorm is usually better, synergizes with Chasm Skulker.

For enchantments, Bounty of the Luxa should be an easy cut, because its effect of either drawing a card or ramping three isn't really worth it. You'd usually be better off doing something else.

For additions, I'd say an auto-include is Doubling Cube. Doubling your mana that Kruphix stores is insane, and it wins me tons of games. Another addition is Blue Sun's Zenith, which either draws you a bunch of cards or kills someone with a ton of mana. Hope this helped!

Hey there! I would cut the following cards:

  • Brainstorm, as it's really only useful if you care about the top card of your deck, or if you have a lot of shuffle effects.
  • Horizon Chimera, as I don't think it really does that much.
  • Mystic Snake as 4-mana counterspells need to have a good extra effect to be of much use; a 2/2 chump blocker isn't generally that.
  • Sphinx-Bone Wand, as it doesn't generally get that useful until it has several counters, and your opponents will generally kill it before it gets that far.
  • Essence Scatter, as I find that the restriction on only countering creatures is often too restrictive.
  • Mana Leak, as most people have more than 3 mana open when they cast spells you really care about.
  • Bounty of the Luxa, as I find that it almost always does the opposite of what you want it to - drawing cards when you want mana, and vice-versa.
  • Beacon of Tomorrows, as there are much better extra turn spells out there.
  • Artisan of Kozilek, as you don't have all that many great reanimation targets, and you have better finishers.
  • Dissolve, as scry 1 isn't that much of an upside, and 3-mana counterspells aren't that great, either.
  • Probably a land, as you have plenty of card draw and ramp already.

Hope this helps!

How's it going, man? I am also fairly new to this site. Just finished uploading the last of my personal decks. I am a long time player of mtg however, and come here with 15+ years experience under my belt.

At first glance, I see two main issues. One is that you don't have enough draw power, and the second is that you literally have zero ways to protect your creatures. Here are the changes I would suggest:

-3 Abundance (Too mana intensive and does NOT count as card draw)

-3 Burgeoning (Doesn't flow well with the deck, imo)

-1 Hardened Scales (Only gives +1 counter/trigger)

-3 Spreading Seas (NO reason whatsoever for this to be in the deck, imo)

-2 Spellbook (Not enough constant draw to warrant)

-2 Venser's Journal (Not enough constant draw to warrant)

-2 Bloodspore Thrinax (Doesn't fit into the theme well enough)

-3 Champion of Lambholt (Costs too much mana, doesn't fit the theme)

-2 Island (New mana curve is not high enough to warrant 22 lands, imo)

+2 Horizon Chimera (Fits the theme, gives protection from flying threats)

+3 Betrayal

+4 Fate Transfer (Nice "Oh shit" card if creature is about to die, also synergizes with Hardened Scales.)

+4 Cartouche of Knowledge (Fits the theme, added evasion offers a win con)

+4 Mizzium Skin (A must-have source of protection)

+2 Lorescale Coatl

+2 Zameck Guildmage

Overall these changes would add a bit more consistency to the deck by increasing your # of playsets. It would increase the amount of protection you have from "kill cards", since you were previously at zero. And I beleive at the end of the day it would increase your card draw, (fitting the theme of the deck). I hope these suggestions help, let me know what you think!

Delta-117 on Legend of THE Deck

Hey there, I see you have definitely tried out a lot of differing playstyles that's for sure. Let me apologize in advance for the length of what I have had to say, but all of which I feel helps to give some background to the deck choices I now play.

Anyways here's a bit of background about my experience with magic. I first had started playing at around Theros, although I knew nothing of modern, or even standard at this time and just played this casual deck featuring Prophet of Kruphix, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Heroes' Bane, Plasm Capture, Explosive Vegetation, Roil Elemental, Archetype of Imagination, Horizon Chimera, Chasm Skulker, and some other stuff. I always had difficulty keeping it at 60 cards and at it's highest I think I was playing like 80 or so cards. I eventually opened a Windswept Heath expedition by the time of BFZ and proceeded to sell it when I learned of it's value a few weeks later. With the credit and some cash I bought things like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth because I started to become very interested in the eldrazi tribe, then stuff like Omnath, locust of mana, Spawnsire of Ulamog, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and all of the other praetors minus Urabrask.

Next I then got into playing commander, and my then first actual constructed deck was one led by Vorel of the Hull Clade and which was largely at first built from my existing casual simic deck. Then into playing standard at around late BFZ / a few months away from OGW releasing with essentially an upgraded into deck around eldrazi. Then by around SOI I began playing my first 'competitive' standard deck in contrast to the eldrazi with vampires which were somewhat hyped early on. I also began playing modern around this time too, and at first with this eldrazi deck. I now look back at how horrible that deck was lol, it played basic lands, Jungle Hollows, 1 Eldrazi Temple, and a couple Shrine of the Forsaken Gods alongside things like Bane of Bala Ged, Blisterpod, and even my 1x Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. My first match ever of modern I obviously got wrecked and it was by storm, here I was playing Blisterpod and the like while my opponent was casting Gitaxian Probe after Gitaxian Probe, Serum Visions, Pyretic Ritual etc and my awful, clunky deck never got to do anything.

Later I just borrowed decks from others at my town's still fairly new lgs and I started with mono green stompy and then infect which I absolutely loved. I started to build the deck myself during Eldritch Moon largely from trades from the same guy who let me play the deck to start with, who had extra cards for the deck. I however sadly stopped building it at around kaladesh/aether revolt after the banning of Gitaxian Probe and the printing of fatal push. More recently noble hierarchs have had increased a fair bit in prices and that was another reason. Being a student I didn't want to sink too much money into modern at first either. Later on, much closer to the present I finally began to build a tron deck for modern to take the place of my unfinished infect. I had already been thinking of building such a deck much earlier at around the same time as I originally was thinking about infect, but I decided against it and chose the infect.

I now went with the more cheaper mono version of the deck and through almost 100% by trading I managed to put together the deck to play about a month before Amonkhet released.

In summary here, I took a liking early on in magic to casting large spells as seen by my playing of eldrazi, ramping, and then as well as generating lots of mana overall. That is why I now see that tron and any of it's variants are among my favorite type of deck to play. From also playing with the praetors and a couple other cards long ago, I had also taken a liking to the Mirrodin block and the infect mechanic even though I never got the chance to play at that time. At some point, I plan to finish the deck even though it isn't what it use to be, but that's alright as I like the playstyle it offers and a bit more of a challenge might keep things interesting. Mainly got to buy the Noble Hierarchs, then some more of the lands like Pendelhaven, Breeding Pools, and 3 more of the 8 average green fetches it wants to have, but then it was done.

Although I didn't mention it before, but from Kaladesh up until now I have been playing a delirium deck, and more recently an energy variant due to rotation nearing and I also loved the graveyard interaction and strategies. Emrakul, the Promised End, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Liliana, the Last Hope, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Flayer, alongside Traverse the Ulvenwald was a blast to play. While not being maybe top tier, I have been keeping in mind porting something like this deck over to modern despite unfortunately selling off my lilianas and flayers and making a sultai () delirium deck in modern. Tarmogoyf, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy, Mishra's Bauble, Thoughtseize among others could be added. Abzan midrange has also been in my mind to try. I would like to find a home for one of my all time favorite cards since I started back in Theros, and that is Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in modern maybe.

Furthermore, just like eldrazi, slivers are among my most favorite and beloved creature types in magic, and that is why I now play them in commander, pauper, and someday hopefully standard too! I have been considering now that tron is finished, of buiding something else in modern that is tribal and with the recent iconic masters spoilers revealing a reprint to aether vial, that now is the time to try something like this whether it be slivers, or even merfolk in modern.

Here is a final breakdown of what I like to play and might possibly build .

Current decks:- Mono U Tron (Might later try out eldrazi tron if I acquire chalices and temples)- Infect (Not complete)

Ideas for my future decks (Probably will only choose 1-2)

  • Affinity

  • Slivers or Merfolk tribal

  • Abzan Midrange

  • U/W Control

  • Sultai Delirium

On a final note, what I suggest you look into anyways is trying something with planeswalkers perhaps? With the upcoming changes to planeswalkers from Ixalan, this might open up some interesting new ideas. My immediate thoughts on this are playing an orzhov () deck around Gideon of the Trials and other gideons, then even Liliana of the Veil and Liliana, the Last Hope, plus stuff like possibly Slaughter Pact , Collective Brutality, then also tokens from Bitterblossom, and Lingering Souls.

Or what about consider something like Abzan just like I have always been interested in. Here's a sample list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-abzan#paper

I will admit the price of something like it had always scared me away from it in the past, even now still kind of after some reprints in mm17, but I definitely have been interested in it.

But anyways what you could try doing if you haven't already been doing so, is proxying cards and even decks to get a feel for them outside of fnm events and what not. I suggest you give something like my above suggestion a try or something from my own interests listed. I hope this was of help to you as well as maybe even remotely interesting or more, I do apologize yet again for the extensiveness of my post!

Horizon Chimera and Drogskol Reaver. The only time it works in my favor is I have Laboratory Maniac out, but it's damn fun to win by mandatorily decking yourself out.

Teferi's Puzzle Box perhaps? orPsychosis Crawler or Horizon Chimera. I built a deck with a similar concept, but needed black and so could not use the same commander: Group Back Stab
