Oketra's Last Mercy Discussion
1 week ago
Rex_JB24 I have actually, that was why my Oketra's Last Mercy was in the sideboard but it rarely worked out for. I was almost tempted to splash green in this bad boy for Haze of Pollen and Nissa, Steward of Elements. It saddens me that there is no good white fog spells in Ixalan. I like your idea, but I'm also trying to plan for the Ixalan rotation. These are really helpful guys, anything else?

Your only big issue is aggro. Oketra's Last Mercy is only helpful if the opponent isn't doing 10+ damage on T3, which aggro might be. Then you lose. Sunbird's Invocation is too expensive for what it is. You already win if you get to T7, T8, etc. You need to make it there. I would take both of those out for:
4x Magma Spray
Just to make sure you get to T7+
My 2 cents! I like the deck... very fun!

You're going to need removal for this to be viable, more so than Dusk / Dawn. I like the idea of improvising your spells but I don't know how well it will work given it requires a lot to work. You need Inspiring Statuary to not get removed, a lot of servos and you need to actually draw Splendor.
I would incorporate a bunch of Exile spells and creatures in favor of what you currently have, because that will definitely give you more of a "lockdown" feel.
Fairgrounds Warden is cool, as is Angel of Condemnation. Cast Out exists and is great. Fumigate will allow you to stay alive longer as well. I would play creatures like Gifted Aetherborn, Bone Picker so you can fumigate your own creatures and cast Bone Picker for 1 mana, and Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs with deserts. Adding deserts allows you to play Desert's Hold for more lockdown. You'll also need some combat tricks such as Sandblast to destroy attacking creatures. Removal like Grasp of Darkness, Dead Weight, or hand disruption such as Harsh Scrutiny, Lay Bare the Heart are fun too. Then of course have enough mana to drop Overwhelming Splendor. I would maybe even suggest adding in Crested Sunmare alongside some life gain spells or creatures. Alongside your Splendor you can use Torment of Scarabs or Trespasser's Curse.
This is of course if you want a themed "lockdown" prison deck. Exiling and removal are key in these types of decks. You tend to play grindy and widdle away your opponent's life slowly, eventually dropping the Splendor. This will by no means be competitive but it's a theme you can run with, y'know?
I would definitely sideboard Solemnity, Lost Legacy, Dispossess, Oketra's Last Mercy, stuff like that. You want to take away your opponents ability to do things and cast spells, so these cards work nicely.
Hopefully this is what you were looking for. This by no means is super competitive, but like I said, fits the prison lockdown theme.

I don't know where to start...
Sorry you said you haven't played modern for long time but still "Mardu Bust, my take on the typical Aggro-Control strategy." Well it haven't been typical as long as i have followed Modern x).

I disagree I run a U/W mill deck which runs Dusk//Dawn and Oketra's Last Mercy I am currently 27 wins 6 losses and 1 draw. I absorb a lot of damage dusk away any big threats and if life is low go back to 20 3 times and continue milling..lol

The deck looks pretty sweet.
Your average CMC is over 4 while you're only running 33 lands. Even with your ramp your ratios are a little off. You're high mana cost cards are pretty sweet but they're not going to be fun if you never get to play them because you don't have the mana to play them. Cut a couple of expensive to cards and add more lands.
Also, while Ayli can remove things once you're above 50 life you still need a little more instant removal. Cast Out is a good card in the current Standard, but I think Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking are cheaper and more effective in this deck.
