Moorland Haunt Discussion

Icbrgr on Using the Exile Zone as ...

5 months ago

While going through my collection I came across the quirky/niche card Misthollow Griffin ; and wondered "What could be done with this guy?"

A few other "cast from exile" creatures I know about from the hip that have been printed more recently than Misthollow Griffin are Squee, the Immortal and Eternal Scourge . The 3/3 Flyer and the 3/3 and 2/1 bodies dont exactly seem like impressive win conditions on their own but with the power of recursion and late game value with tools like Moorland Haunt ; in the right shell could these creatures be put into a deck that was more than just a theme/gimmick brew?

My thoughts about it... Show

What kind of shell/colors would you use and what do you think some other good cards to hold the deck together could be?

This looks great considering your goal to keep it budget. Obviously extending the budget would allow for upgrades particularly in the manabase (although Moorland Haunt is still pretty cheap last I checked). I currently don’t have my Vials yet either so I understand the budget dilemma. My only recommendation within budget constraints would be 1-2x the aforementioned Haunt. Get your reps in, learn the lines, save your money and work your way up. Seachrome Coast and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner are within Flooded Strand ’s price range. Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial are definitely weighty investments that take time. For a budget, this is damn close. Good work.

hmm a list with the rarely remembered 3x copies combo of Fiend Hunter and/or Restoration Angel, (fiend hunter holds down either another hunter or an angel, then an angel or hunter hits that hunter for the loop), you could put any soul sister or other etb matters abilities to abuse it. (or Seraph Sanctuary)

if you run some colorless utility lands, (Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter are popular to fight tron, which looks to be a really tough matchup for this deck) Moorland Haunt is probably the most budget I can think of, you can run Eldrazi Displacer over the navigator which is massively cheaper on a mana base (I also suggest cutting the leviathans for the same reason, in any modern game vs any quarter decent deck the leviathan is never getting cast without you already having won the game) and is a lot less restrictive in which target you can flicker with it (you can even use it defensively).

Oh Guildmages' Forum could be perfect for a colorless land with colored mana option with a utility (that is budget). Also Irrigated Farmland is dirt cheap dual land option as well that can even interact with sun titan I would suggest using those over the tapped dual lands (still weird cove is common and river was uncommon in that commander set...) you add dimes to the budget for more effective lands.

hmm now that I look at it you could probably cut blue all together Militia Bugler and Blade Splicer are both fairly good creatures and you could just increase the count of the various white creatures, Thraben Inspector is also a rather good 1 drop. I think Kitchen Finks got a massive price drop (UMA reprint), Gideon's Lawkeeper is also very similar functioning to a bounce creature, Mangara of Corondor is also rather good with flicker effects.

I should stop now... mostly skimming around death and taxes atm anyway now that I think about it.

the 2 Honor of the Pure should be taken out and substituted with 2 more intangible virtues. Judge's should be substituted with Mausoleum Wanderer firstly due to you generating lots of spirits (i.e. Lingering Souls, Selfless Spirit), which can actually make this an offshoot of a spirit tribal deck with a zur gimmick. Pride of the Clouds i feel should be limited to around 2-3. Yes it can be a 2 mana creature, but it is still a 1/1 that is dependent on your field advantage. Arguably a strong card, but the meta is full of removals right now and its forecast ability for 4 mana for 1/1 flyer is ok at best. Why is Moorland Haunt not included? 2 mana to generate a spirit without taking a slot in your deck. The vampires here don't seem to add much value and can easily be removed. since your tokens are the going wide strategy, i would probably continue that and instead put in counter spells (especially since you run blue) to protect your spirits. Not Forgotten would be an interesting disruption card to make your opponent top deck something useless before their draw, so perhaps side?. I might be pushing the spirit tribal a little more, but hear me out...Spirit Bonds since you generate tokens, why not add a little more?

Finally, your matches. -Facing off against a control deck, you have token generators and counters to counter their spells. They terminus, that's fine still generating tokens. -Against aggro, it will be hard but hand disruption can disrupt their tempo and follow with counters. build up your spirit army all the while buffing them with your token buffers -Against combo decks, just pure disruption -Against tempo creature decks (i.e. humans), your spirits are practically disposable. the unlikelihood of trample means you can use something like vault to give deathtouch to kill key creatures. humans will always be a tough one to fight against though -Against tall creature decks, same as above.

I think removing two plains for two Moorland Haunt. Chances are you'll have enough plains to play anything in your deck even if you draw both of them. If anything, your Mana base would need the biggest upgrade if you want more blue though. I'd recommend budget dual lands like Port Town or Irrigated Farmland or Prairie Stream.

So I should say blue/white spirits is gaining popularity in modern, as opposed to any other format. The deck I'm talking about uses cards like Mausoleum Wanderer, Spell Queller, Phantasmal Image, and Aether Vial. Obviously super expensive but the deck is basically an aggro deck and a control deck at the same time.

I have a spirit deck myself, feel free to check it out if you want some ideas. It's the deck called Kindred Spirits on my page.

Try Moorland Haunt, when your nontoken creatures die you can replace them.

Also, getting 4of on your Lords is the best idea. The tougher your creatures are the better. Also, if you have two Drogskol Captains out, all your creatures have hexproof!

Blue/white spirits are getting Super popular and strong, although it would be a completely different build than yours.

You have a really solid deck for the budget you have. You need to up your budget if you want it to get better.

Xica on Which deck Should I Buy

"dredge is actually quite powerful in the meta RIGHT NOW and relatively cheap."

And its highly unlikely to stay in that position for long.

Both decks are highly underappreciated powerhouses of the format, however i would buy spirits as its a tribal deck, and there is a LOT of jank that can be placed in it that is viable, be it Moorland Haunt, or some stupid stuff like Spectral Procession

Moorland Haunt makes a lot of sense here. Also, a conideration for any tribal deck are Mutavault and Aether Vial
