Leyline of Sanctity Discussion

Green also lets you run Sandwurm Convergence as another protection/win condition.

Since you have blue, you can slow the opponent down with a Lunar Force and Mistveil Plains.

I once tried using Wound Reflection and Havoc Festival to kill opponents, instead of the traditional Form of the Dragon. It is better if the opponent has a Leyline of Sanctity.

That's what's awesome about this style of deck: there's no wrong way to do it.

Something like this seems like a good place to start: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/16-08-14-modern-turbofog/

The mono white one seems like it would be the more consistent one and if you took Leyline of Sanctity out, the deck would be like 50 more bucks than this one at most. I could also see something more focused on ramp being effective, similar to the new standard deck using Nexus of Fate and a bunch of fogs to eventually timewalk/planeswalker the opponent to death. I almost would consider my personal standard deck (Sifter Wurm Control) to be a fog deck because it runs so much removal and relies on lands, Banefire, a few hard to stop creatures to really close games, so that is another direction you could take it. Finding a balance between fog effects, card draw/filtering, and the ability to close games when you need to is pretty key to something that is purely defensive like this. Good luck, there's a lot of room to experiment in decks that run so many redundant effects since the finishers can be almost anything that's difficult to interact with in some way. Hope that helped!

I highly reccomend Grim Lavamancer, as it adds a lot of range to RDW.

I'd consider something like Browbeat in place of ahn-crop. I'd also much rather see a Metallic Mimic or similar instead of Ghitu Journeymage.

Doublecast is a great spell, and when run alongside Howl of the Horde or similar, you can jam a lot of lightning bolts into a single turn. The big problem is that unless you are running a combo list and spending 6-8 mana, it will always deal less damage than Lava Spike. Reverberate has some added utility in copying your opponents spells, but its not exactly reliable. If you go this route, you want Insult.

Sideboard Skullcrack or Flames of the Blood Hand. Four of. You will need them. There are better guides to RDW out there that can lead you through sideboarding, but it basically boils down to the split between lifegain hate, graveyard hate and artifact hate, as well as ways to play around Leyline of Sanctity.

Yeah, true about the Leyline of Sanctity part. But it will only work if they get it in their starting hand, or on their 4th turn (if i dont counter it). pytawidmo

Also, I don't like main deck Leyline of Sanctity or Madcap Skills. I think it would be best to run some combination of Hyena Umbra and/or Spirit Mantle

UR2L8 Yeah, I'd honestly say Blood Artist is better, though in a meta with a lot of player hexproof/shroud effects, like Leyline of Sanctity/Witchbane Orb/Aegis of the Gods/Solitary Confinement/True Believer then sine the cutthroat doesn't target, it would in fact be better.

SilverdrakeThank you again for the feedback.

For graveardhate i decied to go with Leyline of the Void because i think Rest in Peace cut off a lot of my own cards.

I want to split my wraths because Meddling Mage.

Stony Silence looks good against affiniti but also tron or KCI i think.

Blessed Alliance and Collective Brutality both flexible and i imagen good against aggro with the opotunety to kill something and gain life. Celestial Purge as a cheap removle for everithing in the right matchups.

I think Leyline of Sanctity is most efficent as a 4 off in the sideboard so i have good chances to have it on my startinghand. After i get Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek it's not that impressive to play Leyline of Sanctity on turn 4. But maybe i see in testing that hexprofe for me is that important.

I have now cuttet all Negate in the sideboard and i'm not sure about that. It's so powerfull in a lot of matchups and i'm not sure i have enough to board in i case i want to board out most of my creature removle.

I will update you after my first matches.
