Hurkyl's Recall Discussion

Peisistratos on Competitive Modern Mill

1 week ago

moe@vet99 I'm afraid that you didn't read my notes carefully enough, because you don't seem to be answering my primer at all.

Affinity is not so a bad matchup despite being a tier. Darkness is the best card against them, followed by a bunch of Crypt Incursion or Fatal Push (you probably don't want to go that specific adopting Hurkyl's Recall). Still, we suffer from being a slow deck needing answers as an inevitable engine of the maindeck: if they draw their answer, we simply lose.

I'm curious about how you could get a playable matchup against Burn even sideboarding the full 15 cards.

Having a sleeker curve is meaningless if you cannot win. My claim is that my list is the most consistent you can get in winning at turn 4 (that happens around 50% of the times unopposed).

I've explained the reasoning behind every card, including Trapmaker's Snare and Field of Ruin - whose use surely is not to take out opposing lands, especially against Affinity.

The colors are already strained: it is not possible to play fewer fetches. I would play more if I could.

Darkness is the best we can do mainboard, as opposed to any other defensive or mill spell.

Search for Azcanta is completely useless, both as a card filter/draw and as ramp. I would plat Serum Visions before it if I needed a cantrip.

Manic Scribe is an horrendous card. See my notes for a detailed analysis.

Board sweepers are bad in Mill. Again, refer to my notes.

Be sure to actually be responding to my guide before posting. Thanks.

Its hard to give suggestions on sideboards because every local meta is different but here are some general suggestions

Affinity-Wear, Smash to Smithereens, Shattering Spree, Hurkyl's Recall, Shatterstorm

Storm-Counterflux, Mindbreak Trap

Control-Negate, Dispel, Spell Pierce

Burn-Kor Firewalker, Timely Reinforcements

Eldrazi-Deflecting Palm

Valakut, Tron-Molten Rain

Devoted Druid, Tokens-Izzet Staticaster

Also, Opt may be better in your deck since its an instant and can protect your Exemplars

The Engine does seems a bit clunky. I haven't been able to use it much while play-testing it here. Winds of Rebuke makes sense but do you think Hurkyl's Recall would be better? I'm not totally sold on making this run around the Scepter as much as most decks do because it seems a bit harder to assemble compared to AS + LED or the Doomsday combo. I am still doing a lot of play-testing so we'll see.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be keeping those cards in mind even those that I did not put in the maybeboard.

I typically try and stay away from SB recommendation because every local meta is different and I don't want to steer you wrong in any way. Since you specifically ask I'll try and just give very general suggestions.

It looks like you are lacking artifact hate for Affinity, Lantern, and KCI Combo

Hurkyl's Recall



Shattering Spree

Smash to Smithereens


Enchantments can be very difficult for U/R to deal with so you will need bounce spells for cards like Worship, Phyrexian Unlife, and sometimes big planewalkers like Gideon Jura.

Wipe Away

Echoing Truth

Perilous Voyage

You will want some countermagic for control matchups



Spell Pierce

Here are some very matchup specific hate depending on what you are expecting

Storm-Counterflux, Mindbreak Trap

Valakut, Tron-Molten Rain, Blood Moon

Affinity, Infect-Sudden Shock

Hope this helps some!

Alright, sideboard suggestions! As you said, Negate and Mana Leak are pretty solid options, as they give you protection from decks trying to do broken things early game (turn 3 Karn, Ad Nauseam, etc.) so I'd play a few.

Spreading Seas is a really cool card that draws you a card, adds to your devotion, and most importantly, cuts Tron and other various decks off of their mana. I'd run 1-2 for sure.

Hurkyl's Recall: Especially since you're trying to dominate the mid-late game this card will help you immensely against Affinity, Lantern Control, and other artifact-based strategies.

Feed the Clan against Burn/Zoo/insert aggro deck here, since you're going to get that ferocious trigger 90% of the time.

There's loads of artifact/enchantment hate in green, but I think the cards that would be of most use to you are Reclamation Sage and Trygon Predator.

Happy deckbuilding!

Hello! I played faeries for a while about a year ago and I loved them! The main list looks really solid! When I played, I played the full 4 Creeping Tar Pit, and 4 Snapcaster Mage. I also played with the numbers of Mistbind Clique and I personally liked 3 the best. Also Liliana of the Veil is great in faeries!

Im a little confused on the Gifted Aetherborns in the sideboard. What matchups do you bring it in for? Also, if you're not running Hurkyl's Recall in the sideboard then i think you should have 3-4 Ceremonious Rejection. Affinity is a really bad matchup and it works well-ish against it. Also is good against Tron and Eldrazi tron which are tough matchups. All 3 decks make up a large percentage of the metagame so its helpful to have tools against them.

It's not that Thought Scouris bad, but I don't believe it is better than the other cantrips in this deck. The Merchant Scroll are for redundancy(Gifts Ungiven 5,6) and it is a toolbox that let's me run a diverse sideboard(Hurkyl's Recall+Repeal are Fetchable). If I can resolve a Gifts Ungiven with 3 mana floating, I essentially win barring hate.
