Parting Thoughts Discussion

This does look like fun!

I'd second the suggestion for more card draw. Maybe test with synergistic cards that include a destroy/sac or graveyard manipulation cost like Altar's Reap, Costly Plunder, Dredge, Gravepurge, Merciless Resolve, Parting Thoughts, Ragamuffyn, Recover, Skulltap, Urborg Uprising, or Vampiric Rites. Erebos, God of the Dead, or Underworld Connections might help here, too.

A Soldevi Adnate might be handy for a tiny bit of ramp if you ever get stuck without enough apostles, and an Ashnod's Altar would be an excellent source of punishing ramp if you're stuck at 5 or fewer apostles.

Happy brewing!

Hey great looking deck! Got s few suggestions for ya... Strionic Resonator can double his counter distribution trigger or even a "bounty collection" trigger. I agree Queen Marchesa would be great in the 99 of this deck. If you need more control and pillow fort cards maybe try War's Toll, Archangel of Tithes, Lightmine Field, Do or Die and Parting Thoughts. Then there's Diaochan, Artful Beauty, who is basically a wild card. It could survive a while and be insane if you can make allies, or it will die right away but you should collect at least one bounty no matter what. Maybe you want to be in charge of combat to control the board and force bad blocks with Fumiko the Lowblood, Goblin Spymaster, Boros Battleshaper, Master Warcraft, Odric, Master Tactician, and Brutal Hordechief. I love the idea of using curses too especially Curse of Disturbance and Curse of Shallow Graves since you don't mind extra creatures floating around. Happy gathering!!

Nice deck! Got a couple ideas for you.. I'm a big fan of Duelist's Heritage over Battle Mastery... Sword of the Animist is great in non green decks especially Voltron style ones... Inspiring Statuary is great with lots of equipment cards... I like effects like Dictate of Heliod over aura pump spells here since you have so many small value creatures, plus a bunch fly. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can get crazy in 2 color decks. Also I feel like you could use some big card draw spells. There's so much black card draw out there that uses life loss as a drawback that you could probably some no problem. Skeletal Scrying, Phyrexian Arena, Parting Thoughts, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Minions' Murmurs, Moonlight Bargain, Necrologia, Promise of Power, and Underworld Connections... That's more than you need, but i would pick a few of them...Alhammarret's Archive is great in life gain but it's better with card draw effects... also Rhox Faithmender & Boon Reflection for more life gain doubling. Happy gathering!

Heyho Cuthulu,

erstmal eins vornweg :) yidris ist einer der strksten multiplayer Comander ever.. also herzlichen Glckqunsch zu Ihrer Wahl, es war die richtige. (einer der top 8)ein wichtiges vornweg.. du willst (vor allem in deinen niedrigen cmc nur dinge haben die IMMER gut sind. wre ja schade wenn du grad was castest... freust dich auf deinen Cascade trigger UUUNDNDD Prosperity .. oh nix passiert. Damit kommen wir auch gleich zur ersten Karten . Prosperity Raus. ohne wenn und aber :)Ich wrde sogar fast sagen das Terminate und Rakdos Charm nicht uneingeschrenkt gut sind.. weil ohne Kreaturen aufm board.. :)

bei mir im Deck rette ich viel durch wieder auf die hand schicken und den Gegnern dann quasi die sachen weg wheelen :)das funzt ganz gut und du kommst schnell an deine key cards... schau dir mal mein Deck an wenn du magst

Volcanic Vision macht zu wenig fr die Mana kostenParting Thoughts ist nicht immer gutDecree of Pain omg wie geil an die habe ich noch gar nicht gedacht Deine Kreaturen mag ich eigentlich alle gern :) auch sonst gibts nicht ziel zu verbessern. Vlt. hier und da noch mal was Massenhaft Zeugs bei gegnern los wird.. (Yidris wird am tisch nie sonderlich gemocht)

Hi, its always good to see new faces around. First things first, Parting Thoughts is unfortunately not a modern-legal card- it shows on the bottom right hand side. Modern equivalents are things like Momentous Fall,Fruit of the First Tree Take, Tezzeret's Gambit, Fathom Mage, Greater Good, Life's Legacy, Soul's Majesty etc. Still, it should be a straightforward swap, even if its not removal. I'd reccomend looking around at other decks that use landfall effects and counter effects- they tend to operate on different principals, one running Terramorphic Expanse or Wooded Foothills type cards for a quick burst of damage, and the other runnning lists like this thing I threw together Mono green county to play aggressively.

Modern as a format has been shaped by the presence of fast, powerful cards like Scapeshift, Lightning Bolt or Death's Shadow, meaning most games are won or lost by turn four. If you find yourself playing in a competitive environment, just run a full set of Duress, Despise and kill spells like Vendetta- it'll be relatively cheap and hopefully stop your opponent for long enough to achieve a strong board state with Armorcraft Judge and Ridgescale Tusker. The two concepts to keep in mind are 'card advantage' and 'tempo'. Basically, card advantage is 'can I use this card to take out two of his, so that you have more options overall than your opponent style, and tempo is 'can I trade all my cards for damage before my opponent can stop me'.

Playing casually on the other hand is a lot more relaxed, if you're playing with a small group and small number of decks, try to trade for variety in your setup- its no fun if all the games turn out the same way, and the slower play is a lot more forgiving. Optimise to match the power of people you're playing with, otherwise noone will want to play against the deck. People will put up with a couple of dumb turn four wins, but don't try to do that every game, even if its possible. I'll reccomend you focus on making sure your lands are reliable- while competitively Sylvan Scrying is usually used to fetch tron peices (Urza's Toweretc) it will work well enough to fetch lands, though Rampant Growth, Harrow, Khalni Heart Expedition, Kodama's Reach and other cards that put lands onto the battlefield will likely be more practical for now.

Also, you should include Vinelasher Kudzu, its pretty hilarious.

The most important thing is to playtest before going out and getting things, and have fun.

I found a Reliquary Tower that can replace the Transguild Promenade for future considerations!

Parting Thoughts also pretty bad, I don't think you're putting counters on any creatures.

I have a Aetherflux Reservoir don't know if you'd want that in there, I know shaynejamesgold loves it! More future considerations :)

I have a Chromatic Lantern $9.99 USD VERY good, and Cyclonic Rift $7.99 USD if you want both for $15 CAD!
