Magus of the Moat Discussion

Caerwyn on Mr. Smith Goes to Ravnica

Goofydat - Thank you for the suggestion! I did some playtesting with Magus of the Moat and found it a tad redundant with Ensnaring Bridge . Ghostly Prison might not completely stop the enemy, but it provides some respite on the early turns while awaiting an Ensnaring Bridge and empty hand. In my tests, I found Moat's redundancy with Bridge, its four-mana cost, and its susceptibility to creature removal just slightly put Ghostly Prison ahead.

Argy - Thanks! The film is one of my personal favourites.

Have you tried Magus of the Moat ? I find it better than Ghostly Prison.

Academy Ruins - reuse your land fetch artifacts.

Buried Ruin - same as above.

Inventors' Fair - can fetch your artifacts.

Fabricate - fetch which artifact you need.

Enlightened Tutor - self explanatory

Dispatch - you have enough artifacts that this can be a no draw back path or swords.

Baleful Strix - value

Magus of the Moat - to go with your sanctuary.

Archetype of Imagination - creatures can't attack you with Moat or Sanctuary out.

Junk Diver - re use artifacts

Workshop Assistant - re use artifacts.

Myr Retriever - re use artifacts.

All That Glitters - you have enough artifacts/enchantments to make this a second Blackblade Reforged

Alela, Artful Provocateur - can be a hidden commander/backup to Dakon.

Strata Scythe - can get big.

You might want to cut back on the non basic lands and replace them with the other fetches you can get.

Have you considered The Elderspell to lump all of your counters onto a single PW then ult them?

Beyond that, I'd invest in some more board wipes, particularly Toxic Deluge and Wrath of God over Descend upon the Sinful .

I've found effects like Peacekeeper and Magus of the Moat to be helpful in decks like this.

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.

Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .

I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.

For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety

I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head

Have you considered Magus of the Moat or Ghostly Prison ? Also I have an Approach deck that I am trying to make good in modern, U/W Control. Can you help? Thanks.
