Jaddi Offshoot Discussion

Few ideas:

Sinist3r on The best cards not worth ...

Oh definitely, I loved playing Skaab Ruinator. In fact I have a build in my private folders on here with him as a finisher/ clock in a midrange toolbox shell. Kinda jank but I think you'd enjoy it so I'll pm it later.

To further discussion (aside from build around me cards) I find certain card disadvantage, life gain, and +1/+1 counter based cards to be difficult to navigate traps for a lot of players getting into constructed formats. I'm not going to give a myriad of examples as there's plenty out there both viable and non-viable, but many options can seem good in a deck archetype that a beginner/ intermediate might pick up in their 75 before realizing that it distracts from their game plan. Jaddi Offshoot in most decks and gameplans is better than Healing Salve for example due to furthering the boardstate while gaining life instead of just gaining life or trading with bolt to save a creature. I hope you guys get the idea (I know there can be rare situations where salve is better) since it was a kind of rushed example, and I hope there's more card discussion to help deck builders.

I like the style of your desert deck Seshiro.

This is a very rough draft of my modern Gideon Tribal deck. These are all the rage now and I think a lot of them try to do too much. I built this before the Legend rule change so it now feels a little different, but I think it still stands on its own.

Development feedback requested.



Nice build I can't believe I didn't see the Noose Constrictor while I was building this in standard. I built a few versions of something similar and have been working on a modern legal version for a while. Until now my best (read most consistently winning) version have involved landfall cards from BFZ. Later versions of my Standard Lands builds included Gitrog but as I lose him this weekend in standard I have started moving more towards a standard build of this type.

Some examples

Standard landsStandard lands

The versions that actually got built and did well ended up including cards like Jaddi Offshoot and Retreat to Kazandu. As this deck is casual you can go a little nuts and run much more powerful landfall cards from older sets like Lotus Cobra or Scrib Nibblers. (I only tried to pick cards that wouldn't break your storyline)

Don't forget some of these cards for consideration

Wall of Roots

Fabricate

Axebane Guardian

Carven Caryatid

Jaddi Offshoot or Tree of Redemption can help the burn matchup

Combo decks like Storm are probably going to have the upperhand game 1 and you will have to sideboard heavily for those matchups, cards like Grafdigger's Cage, Nihil Spellbomb, and countermagic.

Just like with any other mill deck you are also going to have to prepare for matches where your opponent has mill "hate" such as Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. You'll have to have some graveyard hate for these cards like Extirpate or Surgical Extraction or Nihil Spellbomb.

Baker31,
Welcome to Modern! Please take all these comments with healthy skepticism, as I have no idea what your meta is like nor your personal playstyle. :-)

First, I know you asked about sideboard, but I wanted to mention ...

  • You might consider Cathedral of War. I'm not sure what the right number is, so I'd start testing at 4x and work down from there if you can't stand it.
  • Vines of Vastwood is amazing, and I rec' running 4x (instead of a split with Blossoming Defense). Also, in case you're not aware: Because of the way the card is worded, it's actually better than hexproof ... you can use it on your opponent's creatures, to prevent them from targeting their own dudes with pump spells and various abilities (like Equip, Modular, and Crew).
  • Though Groundswell is great is a 2-color deck (because of the Fetchlands), I personally think it's kind of meh in a Mono-G deck. If you haven't already done so, you might try testing 2x Groundswell and 2x Giant Growth and just see which you prefer. You could also try it with an extra land or two.

On sideboard, I try to always consider the following areas:

  • Extra Protection: Meta-dependent, but I try to always consider some extra Vines of Vastwood, Blossoming Defense, or Apostle's Blessing. Also, though it's not really protection, Shaper's Sanctuary is intriguing. Not sure what I think of it yet, but I'm looking forward to testing it once XLN is released and the price normalizes.
  • Extra Evasion: Meta-dependent, but I try to always consider extra Trample and Unblockable (e.g., Apostle's Blessing) effects.
  • Removal: 1x Dismember is great. If too pricey though, any Green fight card is solid. I like Nature's Way, personally.
  • Gravehate: 2x sounds about right. I'm on Tormod's Crypt lately, because it's the only thing that's fast enough vs. Vengevine.
  • Artifacthate: I'm not personally a fan of Nature's Claim in the side, but that's because there's a lot of Eldrazi Tron in my meta and they run 4x Chalice of the Void in the main ... and Chalice with X=1 will shut Infect down hard. I like Seal of Primordium but Deglamer/Unravel the Aether may be better depending on the meta.
  • Extra land: If I find myself bringing in high-CMC cards from the sideboard, sometimes adding an extra land makes sense.
  • Burnhate: If there's a bunch of Burn in your meta, you may want some disposable blockers and some lifegain. Spellskite (blocker + protection) and Kitchen Finks (blocker + lifegain) are amazing, but super-pricey. Maybe something like Wall of Roots, Steel Wall, or Wall of Tanglecord. I've no idea on the lifegain ... Nourish maybe? Or maybe Jaddi Offshoot (though I'm not sure it's worth it with 20 Lands).

Draw well!

Hey Rex_JB24, thx for the review and sorry for the late answer is was away for a tournament this we. Yeah, my meta was filled with control only builds, so the camel was a nice threat for beating 2 every round + card advantage when they finally handled it.My meta has shifted since then, so maybe i am switching to your Gifted Aetherborn build which also opens up a few sideboard slots (Jaddi Offshoot). And i can switch a few of these deserts around for a better manabase since they are no longer needed on turn two.

frogkill45 on Infinite Landfall... and how to abuse it!

i would just like to point out that you could also easily swap the black cards with green and run

Undergrowth Champion (infinitly large creature),

Retreat to Kazandu (inf life or infinitly large creature),

Knight of the Reliquary (tutor for sejiri steppe)

Jaddi Offshoot (also inf life)

Steppe Lynx and Scythe Leopard (inf large creature for a turn)

Lotus Cobra (inf mana)

another black card i saw was:

Scrib Nibblers (inf mill)
