Boza on Arena "Modern"

2 weeks ago

In my personal opinion, Arena should be about giving players more ways to experience MTG that are not available elsewhere or widely in paper - wild formats like the draft with an Omniscience emblem were amazingly fun and something that is not really fun to build for in paper.

I am a paper player - I have a modern deck, several EDH decks and Pauper decks... but not a Standard deck, as it is ridicously expensive to compete in Standard. I play Standard on Arena exclusively and I am glad I can get a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria for the same price as Phyrexian Scriptures .

The problem with Arena is where it needs to go from here. I think the best direction is - besides Standard, nowhere where the paper game is. Compare viewership on Twitch for the top Arena streamer and the top MTGO streamer. Arena is outperforming MTGO by a lot.

So as to not devour MTGO, Arena has to develop its own identity.

TLDR - I will personally use Arena for standard only, even if Modern were made available tomorrow. I prefer to play non-rotating formats in a paper setting.

Hey nice list! I’ve been considering something along these lines with kaya as the finisher. Have you considered a few multi purpose cards like Remorseful Cleric which acts as a body and graveyard nuke and also Phyrexian Scriptures which is a board wipe and also a graveyard nuke? I feel they might work really well here

BMHKain on A Superfriends Deck w/ requirements ...

Bump Box Blows!

Now at 81, I wonder what you think of the deck so far. Should there be stuff removed? What lands should be added for Creatureless Superfriends? What Walkers don't you like so much, & what card would you replace it for? (e.g. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver to Phyrexian Scriptures) Do you think the combos mentioned thus far are good? What would you add? Just asking as this is an important project of mine. I'm the only one contributing to this Challenge, & I'd like some support from others.

You still want to do this?

FastIsFaster on Grixis Thief [GRN]

If you want to go a more control/traditional route, there are a few things I would suggest:

1.) you need some instant speed plays here. Removal like Cast Down, card draw like Chemister's Insight or similar, or counters like Ionize or Sinister Sabotage.

2.) There are a few cards I feel don't really help you very much here:

What is the best target for Helm of the Host? Copying Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is fine, but copying anything else can be done faster by Quasiduplicate.

Captivating Crew requires 4 mana every time you want to steal, and that will limit what else you can get done in a turn. Even if you steal their best thing (let's say something like Lyra Dawnbringer) they still get it back. If you really want to stick with the thief theme, I would suggest a few copies of Cast Down or Murder so you can destroy the creature after you swing in with it.

Mnemonic Betrayal seems out of place here, and I'm not quite sure how good this is. You aren't running much removal (really just Plaguecrafter and The Eldest Reborn, so all other things in the opponents graveyard are probably not good targets. When they discard, they are discarding the worst card in their hand usually. That card is much more powerful late in the game, but without more removal you likely wont get to late game. Even if you got it off late in the game, you need X + 3 mana to do anything, and what do you need X to be to really be effective? Sticking with the Lyra Dawnbringer example, even if you had removed it, you need 8 mana to get that back onto the field under your control. It also doesn't really help as graveyard hate against the decks that utilize graveyards, because unless you cast the cards they go right back. I would strongly recommend cutting this card.

Dead Man's Chest is miles better when you play removal. Without it, you are waiting for combat, and most people will play around that.

I don't love Phyrexian Scriptures here for you, as it hits your side of the board too. If you have two things out, you will lose one. You run a lot of creatures, so it seems unlikely you would only have one out and would really benefit from that board wipe.

As a general rule of thumb with Grixis, you want to be able to interact with your opponent and disrupt their turn to enable your next turn. Counters and removal will do that. Whatever you final build looks like good luck with it!
