washkow on White Token 3

3 weeks ago

Simple token deck, white seems like the way to go. Trying to minimize $$$ spent on this, I am just poor boy from countryside.
3 main elements:-Tokens - the triggerers - 14 token generating spells, notable instants Secure the Wastes and Raise the Alarm could come in handy in a pinch for blocking, especially if they can juice the Hanweir or Geist. Those flying spirits from Spectral Procession are also a nice little boost.

-Control - the defense - Silence, Mana Tithe, Oblivion Ring, and Path to Exile could clear the path for my critters if and when the need arises.

Suggestions appreciated! Inexpensive, don't you know.

Oh, and control is a surprisingly easy matchup in white, I just sideboard in Pithing Needle for Liliana of the Veil or Celestial Colonnade, Mana Tithe for the idiots that tap out to board wipe, and Luminarch Ascension as the preferred late game sideboard finisher.

I would change the sideboard up a bit, with Stony Silence being fun Affinity/Eldrazi Tron hate, and one of the only commonly used ones, I quite like a single copy of both Stony Silence and Kataki, War's Wage against artifacts, a Rest in Peace and a Tormod's Crypt, finishing the specific hate with a copy of Burrenton Forge-Tender and a Kor Firewalker. 3xPithing Needle is also fine. This leaves six open spaces, with what I would fill with 3x of Fragmentize and 2x of Luminarch Ascension and a single of Mana Tithe.

The finishing sideboard would be:

1xStony Silence

1xKataki, War's Wage

1xRest in Peace

1xTormod's Crypt

1xKor Firewalker

1xBurrenton Forge-Tender

3xPithing Needle

2xLuminarch Ascension


1xMana Tithe

Great deck! This seems like a fun spot for Mana Tithe and I think Path to Exile are essential as well, though around 7.00 each.

@Subject13412 If you would like an idea of how the deck pilots, I can add it to the OP in a bit. Its fairly straightforward.

I'd like to bring back Detention Sphere but as of this moment I do not know what to cut.

As far as counterspells go. You obviously want to protect the combo vs. trying to use counterspells to enable it. I'm focusing on 1 drop counter spells since the blue sources in this deck are already stressed enough. Failure / Comply is something that seems to fit well into the sideboard. Again I don't know what to cut since Dispel and even Mana Tithe has had some uses in the counter battles.

Yes, right now aggro-based decks are the biggest problem, which isn't a surprise. From my testing, without 'walkers, sphere of saftey is underwhelming. Sure, Turn 5 I could make them pay X to attack with each creature (That X would be huge mind you. 5+) or I could go for a Goblin Charbelcher activation and potentially win. So far in my testing I found having two Ghostly Prison on the field is enough to slow down most creature based decks.

If I missed anything let me know, had to type this twice since I accidentally deleted the first one.

This is one beast of a deck, I am actually super impressed, I always wanted both mardu to be able to be played, and wanted to build a vampire-tribal, aggro-control build, using ixalan and innistrad to build the base tribal elements, and then go use white counterspells and get into weird (mana rock, etc.) ramp in those colors, to build a board, wipe the board (Damnation), and protect my side (Boros Charm), counter their stuff (Mana Tithe), etc. This deck does waay better at being mdoern playable, and I really wouldn't be surprised if this will eventually be a modern tier 1 deck, some better control pieces would be interesting, and if this deck could run even more disruption that would be interesting. Cards that can get rid of lands from an opponent's deck (Praetor's Grasp style cards) and then force them to look for more lands (Path to Exile), while destroying/removing land usage (Blood Moon) would be an interesting build for mardu as well.


I don't know, I am just rambling now, point is, I love this deck!

@Ballzanya this is the budget list of a much more competitive modern deck also based around tainted Remedy. There's a link to it in the description.

In regards to the cards that do not appear in either list:Blessed Alliance isn't bad, and it's still in the maybe board for the main deck, and will probably replace Oust in this list.

Lingering Souls is great, but in the main deck I replaced it with Timely Reinforcements because unless there's a lot of affinity in the meta gaining 6 life is more valuable than being able to chump flyers in most games. It will most likely make it onto this list soon though, replacing Vampire Nighthawk.

I don't think I will get enough use out of Mana Tithe or Dismemberto run either. If tainted remedy is out at the same time as Tree of Perdition then I can reuse it's ability to drain my opponent further. (Opponents life is 20 then 13 then 6 then 0) and it does this without the need of extra card.

I will have to think about Rebuff the Wicked, its a solid card, I just need to think of something I could cut for it.

I used to play a black/white tainted remedy deck in modern. You definitely need to play four Blessed Alliance, and two Beacon of Immortality. Lingering Souls is optional in this deck, but I found that it gives you blockers to help you survive long enough to kill with the remedy out. For the sideboard you could play Mana Tithe, and Rebuff the Wicked to stop attempts to destroy a tainted remedy.

phdaemon thanks again for turning me on to Untap! It is fun to play test and I'm learning a lot. First thing I learned, Memphismaymagic5, is Mana Tithe is out. Also, going to 3X Thoughtseize and 3X Inquisition of Kozilek to preserve life.

No decision yet on if I can live without Lingering Souls and Noble Hierarch yet. And no decision on Gavony Township versus Stirring Wildwood. Both come in handy. If I go back to Noble and Souls I think Gavony gets the nod, but if I press forward with the current build Wildwood really helps with board wipes.
