Basic Land — Island

Magicrafter on How to Dive into Modern?

4 hours ago

Should this be in Modern section? I'm providing a decklist, so I'm not sure.

I've been thinking about diving headfirst into modern with this deck:

4x Seismic Assault

4x Treasure Hunt

34x Mountain

9x Island

4x Swiftwater Cliffs

4x Izzet Guildgate

1x Reliquary Tower

It's 20$ on SCG, and I'm not willing to spend more than that right now, so that's what I have planned.

Deck concept credit to Dr_Moosh:

Some say 48 lands in a deck sucks. I say suck it. Playtest

to be perfectly honest the only colour this deck needs is blue, you can cut all the other basic lands as in this case they provide no used while blue gives you all the stuff you need, (maybe black for Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas), so let's say for your mana base 1 Academy Ruins 3Tolaria West 2Inkmoth Nexus 4 Darksteel Citadel 8 Island 2 Tectonic Edge 2Halimar Depths and put into the list some artifact tutors in the form of Fabricate to get whatever card you need for the situation Thirst for Knowledge would also be a good option and Oboro, Palace in the Clouds wouldn't go awry either

you don't need Glimmervoid in this deck it seems more like a basic Island with a major downside

But then again, they also get blue from Noble Hierarch. I'm trying one extra Forest to account for the four less mana creatures I have. It could be worth trying one Island with four Misty Rainforest, but I only own one and don't think it's worth that cost for me at the moment.

I'm hoping to get the 4x Noble Hierarch from Modern Masters 2 and have a deck closer to top tier.

The deck doesn't necessarily need blue mana to function, but it does need to be able to make green one-drops. Opening hand with Island and one or two Inkmoth Nexus would be a disaster. Nature's Claim can get me out of Blood Moon if it's really necessary. The professional Pantheon team's lists based off of Tom Ross's also doesn't use Islands.

Haunted Fengraf seems too inconsistent with so many creatures to hit.

Transguild Promenade is worse than an Island in a mono-color deck.

And kylespearsisdead is right about Dominus of Fealty and Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip not being legal in a mono-blue EDH deck.

Forest must be goddamn beautiful. There is a guy at my LGS with an Island but It's not in great condition :/

What God forsaken state do you live in?
