Luminous Broodmoth Discussion
12 hours ago
Looks like we got a little over-excited and have 2 Field of Souls in the list too. No problem, there's a whole bunch of goodies we can put in instead. Just Ikoria, the most recent set, had amazing cards like Bastion of Remembrance, Luminous Broodmoth, Garrison Cat, Dire Tactics, and Serrated Scorpion.
A few organizational things...feel free to simplify it down even further if you'd like. You can put all lands in one category, all removal (exile, board clear...think anything that interacts with something an opponent has that is a problem) in one (this would be a good place for your Leonin Relic-Warder. Also, double check your category for Martyr's Bond :P However helps you think about the deck best.
One thing you could use is more ramp in the early game...a few rocks (since only green gets the land-based stuff and the mana dorks). Orzhov Keyrune, Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, or maybe a few fetch creatures such as Knight of the White Orchid, or Boreas Charger. Otherwise, I think we just need to test.

KnightofDurin I actually haven't thought about it until just now. Thanks for asking because the answer is hell yeah! A simple addition is Drannith Magistrate , it's low costed and only hurts our opponents. That is precisely what this deck wants.
A second idea is to remove some of the "hate-bears" to add in cycle creatures for more card draw because that would allow the option to remove some of the not-so-great artifacts we lean on here. Luminous Broodmoth could work too. We could chump with any of our blockers and just have them come back. Using this with bounce etbs seems good.

Looks good! These may interest you: Scrapyard Recombiner (finds ballista), Mindless Automaton, Crystalline Crawler, Palace Jailer (this card is woefully underplayed. Jailer is interesting because you can flicker/reanimate it to stack the effect, exiling multiple creatures until you lose monarchy. and it provides card draw in white!), Cauldron of Souls, Luminous Broodmoth, Cradle of Vitality, Sunbond, Angelic Accord, Regna, the Redeemer, Bonders' Enclave, Throne of the High City, Tome of Legends, Bonder's Ornament, Ajani's Welcome, Karn's Bastion

I see "it"(current state of meta) as an incredible challenge.
I Started during Ice-Age block, was in it for a couple years then life happened. I got back into Magic during the end of New Phyrexia and the start of the Innistrad block. I was taken aback, at how OP both felt. I mean one of my favorite decks for Modern is call Ghostrider M (M is a reference to quantum mechanics). I mean flip cards, what?!!
It all seemed like I wouldn't/couldn't be able to adjust. I did though, I made some super powerful decks that just were out of the box concepts. Like a powerful Ghoultree deck with undead plants as a theme. I got out of magic again for several years again because, well again life.
This year I jumped back into it with Theros, thinking it was a good(relatively, not a fan of enchantment centered decks), balanced. I brood a couple of decks focused primarily on Mono-Black. Created an amazing Standard version of a Necropotence deck.
Then, rumors of Ikoria started floating around and I was worried it would turn into the trash-fire that the Eldrezi were. Then I heard about Godzilla cards and it gave me hope. Then cards started to leak. Mechanics were revealed and explained.Mutate is awesomely balanced. I thought it was going to turn all cards and decks into new forms of the Voltron(Tron) type. It doesn't really which is nice.But let me throw an octopus on top of a Glimmerbell so I have a card drawing Flying octopus, hell yeah!!
Companion, this is another story. I call it Commander-light. It's a challenge. This format makes it so you can either get around Companion at a disadvantage. Having one less starting card than your opposition or you find ways around that disadvantage. i.e. Zenith Flare-(Guilty I made one)-Cycling or something else. I think we just need a couple weeks playing against these concept decks to maybe start to worry.
Even with this "Ikoria" standard Jeskai-or-whichever Fires of Invention decks are still number one decks. I'm waiting for people to start building killer Death's Oasis, Titans' Nest, Weaponize the Monsters, Shark Typhoon, and Back for More-Godzilla decks. Maybe B/W Nightmare Shepherd + Luminous Broodmoth + Dirge Bat decks. Concept decks like Anti-Monster human decks.
My point is even though some of these new decks seem powerful, minus Gyruda, that deck is super weak. A counter spell or Pacifism shuts the whole deck down. There can and will be way better deck concepts.
I've thrown together several new standard deck concepts that could be made into amazing decks with the right imagination. Turbo-FOG with Sharks...
