keevel on Trying to get into modern.

Find a deck you like/know/want to grow and play modern. That is legit the best way.

Yes, you will lose just due to lack of knowledge and sideboard. But if you know a deck in standard you may have an easier time.

RNA Standard Decks with related Modern Archetypes:

Growth Spiral and Wilderness Reclamation are also seeing frequent experimentation around the fringes

(there's probably more but those were the one's off the top of my heap

Out Personal Tutor Blighted Bat Careful Study Frantic Search Sleight of Hand

In Mana Drain Arcane Denial Shred Memory Mistcaller Narcomoeba

This deck has been goldfishing between turn 3-6 pretty normally, but with most cEDH decks pushing those turn 3 wins, its becoming more important to hold up more interaction. I've swapped out some hard draw for more counterspells, which should help us get to our combo window as well as stop other players in a pod from snagging that vic. Blighted Bat turned out to be too niche, and there are almost always other ways of reaching a vic when the Bat is open to us, and its a complete dead draw. Personal Tutor was a neat way to fetch Ad Naus, but the replacement Shred Memory is better aimed towards our combo pieces, and has reactive uses against other decks as well. Personal tutor simply fell short when compared to Mystical Tutor , and I never want to telegraph my play by putting Ad Naus on the top deck and then passing (Myst tut avoids this by having instant speed and can also grab instants). Mistcaller is an interesting add right now, token decks aren't running rampant but you do see Kiki combos in decks such as Blood Pod, and you see Dualcaster Mage combos in mono R value sometimes ( Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame is not a lot of slots, most decks can fit it pretty ez if they want). Mistcaller s primary role is to be a sacrifice outlet for Lazav, identified during testing how painful it is to acquire infinite mana with no outlet. Narcomoeba I'm on the fence about, because it is painful to have it in hand, and with less hand discard a la Careful Study we may end up hard casting it sometimes. Only requiring 2 critters for Dread Return when we are gravey flipping is a huge boon though, and testing will reveal if it deserves its slot.

Nope, way to weak w/o anything but Narcomoeba / Prized Amalgam to recur for a Dread Return . Actually have yet to get a goldfish single cast on Dread return yet.

For any number of reasons, that didn't come to mind. They exist more-so to cast Narcomoeba , though I was thinking, should I just replace that with Nether Traitor or Despoiler of Souls ?

hungry000 on The Worst Deck (Primer)

2 months ago

The wording of the title of your deck was slightly misleading; I was expecting a really bad primer, not a bad deck with a nicely done primer! :P You should really put the word "Primer" in brackets or something, it would clear up some misconceptions and possibly bring in more views.

That important matter aside, I think the deck could maybe benefit from some Narcomoeba to get Amalgams back for free, though it may underperform a bit since this isn't a completely dedicated Dredge deck. More madness cards that work with One with Nothing and Collective Brutality would be nice, like Asylum Visitor (which is especially nice with OwN).

If you're having trouble with consistency, maybe instead of playing Dredge cards, you could go with a less all-in midrange madness deck? By playinf some more typical midrange cards (like 1 mana hand disruption) and such you could find yourself having more success.

Also, Gifts Ungiven=no unless you somehow find a way to make it work with One with Nothing (which is beyond me)

Gitrog is a hell of a deck, it's combos are also intricate as fuck. The main idea is to assemble Dakmor Salvage, gitrog and a discard outlet. You discard the dakmor, gitrog triggers, but instead of drawing, you dredge dakmor. You can repeat this as much as you want, and you stack draw triggers for each land that is dredged off of dakmor, and you keep from milling with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. you keep this going until you have draw triggers stacked up so you can let them all resolve and draw your deck.

Winning from there is the fun part. you can then make infinite mana by looping kozilek, a land and Lotus Petal. Basically you discard in such a way so your library consists of kozilek and a land (called the KoziLand state) you can use this in combination with dredging dakmor to put any number of draw triggers on the stack. In this case, you want to dredge dakmor twice to put 2 triggers on the stack, then once more, cracking petal before the last shuffle trigger resolves, then draw your three cards, and repeat. After this you can use the same technique to exile your opponents' libraries with Praetor's Grasp or deal infinite damage with Rath's Edge and Crop Rotation.

Here's the primer which explains the main combo as well as all the other cool stuff better than I can: Gitrog Dredge Combo [Primer]


The best version of thras/tymna flash hulk right now is shuffle hulk which fetches blood artist, nomads, illusionist, and blood artist and then wins by milling the deck and infinitely looping kozilek and Narcomoeba. It's just generally more resilient than breakfast or other variants.

Here's a list: Shuffle Hulk


Chain Veil Teferi is also a decent deck, the main goal is to get 6 mana in up to 3 rocks to activate The Chain Veil and then activate teferi untapping veil, and three rocks totaling 4+ mana. you can repeat this until teferi dies and then hopefully you have enough mana to recast him. at that point the ruling on chain veil is that you get a number of free activations when you recast teferi, so you should have 6 free activations of him when you recast, making the rest of the combo easy. then you end up with infinite activations and infinite mana, draw your deck, and then play Blue Sun's Zenith to draw everyone out.

Here's a list: Chain Veil Teferi


Brainerd covered najeela pretty well, it's a tempo deck that uses key removal and tutors to stop other combos while gaining a missive advantage with najeela and something like Edric, Spymaster of Trest. it can then combo with any of the things that he mentioned.

Here's a list: Warrior Queen [Najeela Midrange/Tempo cEDH Primer]


Like you would in any format, do your homework on your deck, but keep in mind everyone at a cEDH table is going to be really paying attention to everything you do, so invisibility is not an option. There's also a certain mindet that comes with cEDH that isn't the case in EDH: there's always an objectively best play, politics have no push or pull. If you play a spell the players don't like, it will be countered, if you are objectively the biggest threat, people will try to stop you, etc. It's all about the deck and pilot skill. It'll take a little getting used to but it's fun once you get into the swing of it.

Apologies for the wall of text lol, hope it helped!
