Hi Kumaisteri

About those of your suggestions. I have been testing Narset, Parter of Veils by cutting Coercive Portal and she has been amazing and is here to stay but I don't know what is right to cut. I have also been testing Treasure Cruise by cutting Tasigur, the Golden Fang because Karakas has been showing its head.

And now to your maybeboard.

Otherwise your deck seems solid more controlling sultai that will win games.

I hope that I answered your question well enough. Also remember that these are just suggestions and not absolute do things and some cards may be better in different meta games.

Man if only Karakas wasn't banned :( Some lands are just OP

Thank you for the heads up on Karakas , I actually didn't know that ! I'm probably gonna put a Nimbus Maze in instead. As for Necropotence , that rules interaction is exactly why I have a Spellbook , an Anvil of Bogardan , Reliquary Tower and a Library .

Having no maximum hand size should solve the problem, if I'm thinking right ?

Why are you running Karakas ? It's banned in EDH.

@SynergyBuild I think we're discussing semantics now.

I should have made a distinction between top tier power cards, and cards that are very good (and maybe even cheap vs expensive $ in that regard). After all we have Chalice of the Void , Gaddock Teeg and Ranger of Eos .

I'd argue the cards in question don't exceed the power level of Modern and I do think we will get good cards, just not the iconic powerhouse, format definig Legacy cards ( Wasteland Strip Mine Force of Will Karakas ).

I'd also argue that on this specific matter, WOTC do care... heck they employed people to actually playtest Modern, and I also think they want to keep a clear distinction between Legacy and Modern.

Cool idea: feels quite a bit like a nice variant of the Oops All Lands deck that I see not so infrequently. Here are some thoughts (that might not have hurt too much):

  • Do you have a way to consistently deal with Blood Moon ? It's not looking like it, so I would recommend Engineered Explosives , Krosan Grip , or counterspells like Daze . Maybe one or two basics could be good to provide the extra colors you'd need.
  • Life from the Loam is a possibility for you to get more land cards at record speed, plus you can dump more lands into your graveyard (for more fun!).
  • Pendelhaven , if used judiciously, is an extra boost for your manlands. Plus, it's green.
  • I commonly see Karakas in sideboards or main decks, because a lot of creatures running around that can cause problems are legendary. While off color, it's maybe not a bad idea for the bonus effect.
  • I don't like Temple of the False God in here. I'd think Ancient Tomb might serve you better... or maybe run a copy of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth .

Hey there!

I consider your deck as very thoughtful although I have different suggestions for it:

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast on Let's talk seriously about DnT ...

Death and Taxes. A sweet sweet deck that combines aggro and control. I've personally always been fascinated by the deck, though I never built it because of its supposed lack of power in Modern.

The Legacy version has stuff like Karakas , Mother of Runes and Stoneforge Mystic , which give a ton of reach to the deck.

I feel like DnT is a bit underwhelming vs control, but Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is nuts against the Phoenix decks.

: With a splash of green, we could play the 'new' Knight of Autumn (super toolbox creature, especially great vs Burn and Zoo), Voice of Resurgence and the card everyone sleeps on : Wilt-Leaf Liege .

: Arguably the best color to splash because it allows to play Thoughtseize and makes the 'combo' Tidehollow Sculler / Wasteland Strangler / Eldrazi Displacer possible.

: opens the door to the sweet tech of Magus of the Moon and Dire Fleet Daredevil (vialed in, wooooh so sweet!) + Lightning Bolt to clean early game/close late game obviously.

My question is simple : can DnT be an actual thing in Modern? If you think so, should we have to reconsider/rethink our approach of the deck based on the Modern Meta? I guess Humans is just better at what DnT does, even though the game plans are not entirely the same?

I'd love to hear you guys' opinions on the topic!

NB : I'm not a tournament grinder, and have been play mostly Burn for the past years. I guess a version of DnT would do it for FNM's, right?
