Mana Leak Discussion

Miraculeux on My little angel horror

So, here are my thoughts about the deck:

Manawise, your landbase should rather consist of lands that come into play untapped. It's important to have your mana available asap. I would suggest replacing karoo lands like Orzhov Basilica and also Opulent Palace with battlelands like Sea of Clouds and painlands Adarkar Wastes. The storage lands are also not ideal (e.g. Dreadship Reef), because they do not provide colored mana at start. And of course the more fetchlands you can add the better, missing Scalding Tarn, Arid Mesa, Verdant Catacombs, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, Flooded Strand, Bloodstained Mire.

I would suggest you to cut even the three remaining creatures and add additional card advantage and lock pieces. Im missing Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora... all important ways to get extra cards.

Since your main wincon is the Consultation combos, I suggest you definitely run Thassa's Oracle as a main, cheap combo piece.

Lightning Greaves, boots and Helm are not necessary, since protecting Atraxa should not be such a priority to warrant extra cards for it. Also Mana Tithe, Mana Leak and Opt are not that relevant in a multiplayer format. I would advise to replace them with general, cheap countermagic, for better utility. Dovin's Veto, Delay, Swan Song, Tale's End can serve both to protect your cards and your combo, but also disrupt your opponents from winning.

From cheap, but relevant planeswalkers (besides Oko ofc), I would add Vraska, Golgari Queen and Kaya, Ghost Assassin. They generate a lot of card advantage over time.

Also with the amount of manarocks, you could play Winter Orb to stall and buy bit more time for your 'walkers.

Not sure if this is a joke, but definitely love turning ol' Misty into a combo card. It does seem very intensive in terms of how many cards are demanded by the combo. Also, why is Silumgar's Scorn here. I see the theme of turning creatures into other types, but this seems stressful to the manabase compared to something simple like Mana Leak

you can cut anything cmc 4+, and i'd recommend Hedron Crab, fetchlands so you can trigger the crabs twice in a single turn, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mesmeric Orb, and Fraying Sanity.

i almost recommended Mind Sculpt, then saw you mentioned Maddening Cacophony which would be a strict upgrade. stay away from lands that enter tapped. you'll want Polluted Delta, some other fetch that can get an island (to prioritize turn 1 crab), Watery Grave, and Drowned Catacomb. you can skip the planeswalkers and enchantments in favor of more efficient removal and counterspells like Fatal Push and Mana Leak

Phantom Warrior, Cancel and See Beyond are all bad.

Cyclonic Rift is very lackluster in modern, I would reccomend replacing them with Brazen Borrowers.

I can't ever justify paying the transmute cost for Muddle (it's also usually a less than ideal counterspell), I would reccomend just putting in better cards in it's place than a tutor for Lord of the Unreal.

Consider somthing along the lines of Remand or more Mana Leak for stall. Krovikan Mist is probably your best illusion, I think 4 are mandatory considering how bad illusions are.

Maybe Spark Double?

Serum Visions could be an okay replacement for See Beyond.

Force of Negation is amazing in most blue decks.

Tbh I feel like whatever you do with Illusions it's just going to be a worse spirits/merfolk tribal deck with none of the advantages.

Path to Exile 4 times to make it modern legal, Swords to Plowshares isnt.

Reduce Spell Snare to 1-2 copies. Thats normaly enough.

Archmage's Charm for Counter or Draw. Ancestral Vision for Draw. Serum Visions for more Filter. Mana Leak is a good 2 drop counter. Search for Azcanta  Flip is a good filter, too and can dig deep like Narset.

Good build. The format on the page is a bit troublesome for those of us who are colorblind, however.

I agree with sub780lime that you seem like you could use more draw. Return of the Wildspeaker, Life's Legacy and Rhystic Study would be my suggestions for that.

Also, you have a helluva lot of ramp. You're commander only costs 4, your average CMC is 2.00, more than a quarter of the deck is one mana or less, and you're running 13 ramp spells? Personally, I'd cut that down a bit, and use the space for draw and protection. For the latter of those, I'd reccomend at least a couple counterspells (Arcane Denial and Mana Leak come readily to mind), and Whispersilk Cloak which doubles as evasion.

I also agree with Blackblade Reforged from a previous comment, and would add God-Eternal Rhonas and Wine of Blood and Iron.

That's all I got. Cheers!

lagotripha on Blue/black modern budget that isn't …

1 month ago

If you pack enough hand disruption turns 1-3, budget doesn't matter too much. Black/blue offers a lot of that, with Mana Leak/Duress effects cheap both in CMC and price. Sure, running Tragic Slip is worse than push, but you can still trade 1-for-1 with most decks in black and blue.

Bident of Thassa/Curious Obsession unblockable is a versatile list, where you play Changeling Outcast, the unblockable merfolk and disruption. You can tune it based on the amount and type of disruption you run, and because the decklist isn't set your opponent has no idea what kind of clock you are on.

Daron6 on Grixis Cruel Control w/ Discard

Hi! I'm not a control player (I only play tempo-delver decks), so I'll try to help you.

1) Removal, 4 electrolyze is a LOT, seriously play 1-2. Terminates and other stuff is OK.

2) 24 lands, I would recommend playing more two colour lands, like those ones who enters tapped unless you control an island/mountain or swamps, is not a good idea fill the deck with basics in a 3 colour deck.

3) Go to 4 inquisition and 4 pushes.

4) Where are the cantrips lol? : 4 Serum Visions yes or yes and 4 opts. Think Twice for card advantage.

5) counters: I have a recipe for counters and works 90% of the times, 3-4 Mana Leak, 1-2 Spell Snare, playing control decks I would recommend Cryptic Command but is not budget friendly xddd, so go to a 3 Mana counter (or Logic Knot) and 2 negates.

6) This is not a mill deck so Mind Funeral doesn't fit at this deck.

7) you need a BIG finisher like 2 Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Pearl Lake Ancient.

Well, hope I helped you a bit :).
