pottolama on Yisan, the wanderer bard combo

Hello Emzed! I will start saying this was a version i used in a tournament at my LGS, so i tailored it for my meta ( and some card were still in the mail :P )

Now, on card suggested:Seedborn Muse it's a card i want to get and include, she speed up yisan a lot and don't need us to get an infinite mana combo, because she will generate enough utility alone. Definitely an include.

Woodland Bellower I'm always switching him in and out, depending on meta, super useful especially if you need to go 1 vs 3, but at this tournament i decided to leave him out and go purely on speed.

Regal Force I stopped using it, it draw a ton of card but for me Elvish Visionary has been enough ( with help from Temur Sabertooth ) and decided to sub it with Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, for now she's been very good, especially cause i can use her as a naturalize in a pinch.

Phyrexian Revoker is a card that i definitely want to include. Too useful to have a stax target at 2.

Lodestone Golem I don't really like it in Yisan, it enter too late and if Yisan is fetching at 4 i usually have other priorities before stax piece.

Mouth of Ronom not included as for now i don't have snow land :P

Ulvenwald Tracker still have to test it, since i never felt the need to fetch for him, but definitely a card to keep in consideration, especially as an answer for local meta.

Lignify i can see the benefit of having a 3rd Beast Within/Song of the Dryads, but in this list I tried to go all out with the speed for the combo, and never found a use for song of the dryad neither, cause only some specific artefact can come down fast enough to hate us, the rest of the deck are either slower than us, or if faster like storm or tazri food chain, to nominate a few, they need other hate piece other than lignify, like the thorn effect.

Just my vision on yisan! :)

Seedborn Muse goes bonkers with Yisan, Woodland Bellower is a great tool for assembling combos, and Regal Force can be very valuable when you're forced to play a fair game. Did you consciously exclude those cards or are they not on your radar?
Since you have a good suite of stax cards, I suggest adding Phyrexian Revoker and Lodestone Golem too. Finding one of those when needed can be great for the stax plan.
Currently your list is a little light on creature removal. Cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Aven Mindcensor or Containment Priest can be huge problems, and having an answer is crucial. Mouth of Ronom, while not exactly efficient, can be found via land tutors. Ulvenwald Tracker is cheap enough that you might be able to grab it with Yisan in time to deal with the hate. Lignify can shut down opposing commanders for a while.

sylvannos on I need more mana ? ...

I feel like if you're playing Lodestone Golems, you should just up your land count (even though you have Heartless Summoning). I'd probably just cut 2 Treasure Mages for a Buried Ruin and a Watery Grave and take it from there. You only have 4 targets for Treasure Mage anyway, so you might even want to just cut them all out, go to 24 lands, and play a singleton Fabricate.

Looking through your list I'd say it is primarily bad luck, however, adding Mind Stone definitely wouldn't hurt. Worst case scenario, it cycles. As to how to add them in... maybe...

-1 Walking Ballista as it doesn't get much from summonings

-1 Lodestone Golem since your sideboard is spell heavy.

-1 Grand Architect because it does not help you in multiples.

+3 Mind Stone in their place.

Again, I do feel it is primarily luck though.

sylvannos on Tronfinity deck help

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......I'm not sure about this just yet. One of the benefits of Affinity is the power of its man lands and an explosive early game. Tron just gets put together, then starts doing unfair things (like turn 3 Karn Liberated).

This current iteration seems like a weaker version of Mono-Brown Eldrazi Tron, except it doesn't have Eldrazi Temple. At the same time, it's not nearly as fast as Affinity because it doesn't have Springleaf Drum and a bunch of 1 and 0 CMC creatures.

Which brings me to this:
http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=17158&d=306167&f=VI

...which is a Vintage deck. Of course, we're looking for Modern options, but there's some cool things going on that I think you should see.

First, it has several lands that produce more than on turn 1, backed up by land disruption. While we don't have anything like Mishra's Workshop in Modern, we do have Urza's Tower.

Second, it relies a lot on fast mana. Seem familiar? We have Springleaf Drum, Mox Opal, and a plethora of mana rocks and dorks.

Third, look at the creatures. It's using Arcbound Ravager, Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker just like you are, but it's forgoing the high CMC artifacts in favor of Phyrexian Revoker, Lodestone Golem, Thorn of Amethyst, and Sphere of Resistance.

So how can we port this to Modern? I think you're right playing Tron lands, but then I'd toss in Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus. Maybe you play Glimmervoid, Darksteel Citadel, Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin, and some basics if you have room.

Foundry Inspector and Etherium Sculptor can further speed things up. Not only do they lower the cost on everything, you basically get free +1/+1 counters from them.

But probably the strongest aspect to playing this type of deck in Modern? Trinisphere, Thorn of Amethyst, Chalice of the Void, and Lodestone Golem are all unrestricted, unlike Vintage where you can only have 1 of each. Probably the dumbest thing you could do is play a turn 2 Trinisphere/Thorn of Amethyst into turn 3 Ghost Quarter and Lodestone Golem.

The thing you have to be mindful of is that your mana base isn't as good as it is in Vintage, so too many Sphere of Resistance effects can cripple you more than your opponent. You also have to decide between playing a bunch of powerful 1-mana accelerators (Expedition Map, Springleaf Drum, and so on) or Chalice of the Void. I'd also forgo some of the higher CMC cards normally seen in Tron like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Swap these out for cards like Phyrexian Revoker or Thought-Knot Seer.

This is a great deck. You've got most of the staples already. However it could definitely use a Lodestone Golem. Wink wink.

Do you have tutors available?Fabricate, Reshape, Whir of Invention, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, even Diabolic Tutor.

Does your playgroup allow infinite mana? If so, Memnarch will be a force to be reckoned with. Esper may have more infinite mana combos than any other shard.
