Pia and Kiran Nalaar Discussion

clayperce on RG Ponza, Prep for RPTQ

GeminiSpartanX and Moonbar,
One more thought on Tireless Tracker: She's much better in a "monster" build than a more traditional build ...

  • She makes Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip better, because Clues give you something to do with mana instead of casting a spell (flipping him to the back) and the extra card then makes it easier to cast two the next turn (flipping him to the front again).
  • She makes Pia and Kiran Nalaar better, because you can turn Clues into a Shock and a +1/+1 counter.

Now please note I'm still not saying she's great (and I'm personally not running any of those cards, lol). But it's something to keep in mind ...

EXOSURE on Ugin Red — Modern under $200

Hi Unlife, thanks for the suggestion!

The main reason I don't run Scrying Sheets is to make Koth's -2 ability as good as possible so that we can always do things like turn 4 Koth into Pia and Kiran Nalaar or turn 6 Koth into Ugin. The way the deck is set up with so many on-board activated abilities like Hangarback Walker, Mind Stone, and Pia and Kiran Nalaar, I feel like Scrying Sheets' ability will be used less frequently than it might be used in other Skred builds. I'll test one copy out though and see if I like it.

I'm testing Gideon out as a card to bring in where I would want more Geist or matchups where Geist isn't very good. The Gideon's used to be Pia and Kiran Nalaar, but it can be awkward when you have them and Cryptic Command in hand. I'm also testing 2 Geist, since we're less of a cast him on turn 3 deck and more of a play Geist once we've established control and can keep the board clean.

You bet! Please let us all know what you end up on!

By the way, I'd like to +1 WizardOfTheNorthernCoast's comment about Ponza. You want Land Destruction and ramp, followed by "unplayable" fatties? Then Ponza is your deck for sure. I think Competitive RG Ponza On A Budget is a pretty solid budget list, and you could drive the price down more by subbing Llanowar Elves or maybe Lands for the Birds of Paradise and your four-drop of choice (e.g., Chameleon Colossus/Pia and Kiran Nalaar/Obstinate Baloth) for the Thrun, the Last Troll. The upgrade path is just to More Ponza ... some competitive decklists are here.

Again, welcome to Modern!

Maybe a Pia and Kiran Nalaar for some more thopters? A Daretti, Scrap Savant is a good artifact card as well.

Traveler247: Interesting idea re:Genesis Chamber. The tokens for other players do worry me, though...

Possibility Storm works very well with Zada's ability. She still copies the spells to your other creatures before Possibility Storm "cycles" them away, then copies the second spell too. So it disrupts your opponents while often DOUBLING your spells' outcomes.

Confusion in the Ranks is honestly there because I find it an immensely fun, hehe. I can sometimes steal my commander back with token-generators, but I just love the chaos that Confusion in the Ranks generates :)

And a $200 budget is VERY much an option for this deck :) Lots of cheap, good cards for the deck.

iPhalanx: I tend to go for a storm combo for my win-con, so I don't swing very frequently. For a more combat-focused build, though, it can definitely be good!

And there's no busted combo around Pia and Kiran Nalaar, but 3 creatures for 4 mana is something I'm willing to work with :)

Curious how Temur Battle Rage has not made your list, seems pretty good in my opinion?

Also, I'm just curious if there is some busted combo that can happen with Pia and Kiran Nalaar that I'm not seeing.
