sylvannos on Help with splash in all ...

@Draw_Wurm: You might wanna try going creatureless except for gods and something huge, like Sun Titan. Or you can just feed Bitterblossom tokens to the Porphyry Nodes. It's definitely one-or-the-other. Personally, I'd skip Bitterblossom and creatures, going with the 4 full copies backed up by gods. Between that and Path to Exile + Thoughtseize, you have enough time to lock your opponent out with Ghostly Prison and remove stuff with Oblivion Ring.

Enlightened Tutor isn't Modern legal. That being said, I still think you should skip tutors altogether since Kruphix's Insight is going to give you more value. Especially if you have Sun Titan or Starfield of Nyx ready to go.

Other suggestions I forgot to mention are Fertile Ground (so you can enchant a basic Plains and stop Ghost Quarter), Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (sometimes you just have the nuts and get 2 Leyline of Sanctity, giving turn 2 Sphere of Safety), and Journey to Nowhere (even more removal).

You may not want these due to meta, but I also like Root Maze, Blind Obedience, and Suppression Field in Enchantress. Root Maze and Blind Obedience can randomly win game 1 against Burn, Affinity, and Tron. Suppression Field shuts off half of Modern and you don't care about it because you're running off Utopia Sprawl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Lastly, I noticed you have only 14 cards in your sideboard. I'd use that last slot on Circle of Protection: Green since it stops Infect and Boggles. Once you have Night of Souls' Betrayal, Inkmoth Nexus dies immediately and Infect has to basically kill you with Spellskite (lol). Boggles gets put in a similar place, since they can only win at that point with Kor Spiritdancer, who easily gets eaten by Oblivion Ring, Path to Exile, and Journey to Nowhere. Lastly, it can get work in against Collected Company, Tarmogoyf, Siege Rhino, and Primeval Titan.

Randsome on Rite Elves

As of right now (based on the cards i have), i tried out the following build and it worked more or less well enough in xMage for me:

T2 Abzan Elves
1x Llanowar Wastes
2x Plains
1x Shambling Vent
2x Hissing Quagmire
3x Holdout Settlement
2x Sea Gate Wreckage
2x Westvale Abbey  Flip
2x Swamp
8x Forest
3x Oath of Nissa
3x Elvish Visionary
3x Dwynen's Elite
4x Beastcaller Savant
4x Sylvan Advocate
3x Cryptolith Rite
2x Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
2x Eldrazi Displacer
2x Eerie Interlude
2x Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip
4x Shaman of the Pack
2x Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen
4x Sylvan Messenger
T2 Abzan Elves-sideboard
1x Declaration in Stone
4x Transgress the Mind
3x Grasp of Darkness
2x Clip Wings
1x Eerie Interlude
2x Ruinous Path
2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

61 - cause i wasn't able to lift my hand to cut anything else.
Also, i have a TERRIBLE desire to put in singletons of Tajuru Warcaller (very powerful alternate wincon with a lot of triggers), Woodland Bellower (puting this out on turn three proved to be pretty damn bruttal) and Greenwarden of Murasa (for that sweet-sweet possibility of recursive Interlude), but can't find any room for them.

Randsome, If you can't use Collected Company because of the price then I don't think Abzan is the way to go. Instead stick with Golgari and play Sylvan Messenger, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen and Oath of Nissa. Check out Budget Rite Elves for some ideas.

The problem without using Company is Eldrazi Displacer you need ways to find him. He is the reason to use white. Without using Company I see two ways you can go. Using Oath of Nissa or using more Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip or both because both can find Displacer. I haven't yet updated Budget Rite Elves to reflect this Abzan version, but if and when I do these are some of the changes that I will make.

Here is a possible Abzan without Company decklist:

For being new to legacy, not bad. However, like all decks, it could be better. You at least are playing Force of Will and no 3-drops, so you have a very good start to a legacy deck.

Let's start with manabase: 4 Flooded Strand, 4 Tundra, 1 Island, 1 Plains, 4 Polluted Delta, 4 Wasteland, 1 Karakas.

You need 4 Brainstorm. It's the best cantrip in Legacy. Mainboard Disenchant is unnecessary. Power Sink is sub-par.

You're playing white; how about a Stoneforge Mystic package? 4 Stoneforge Mystic, 1 Batterskull, and 1 Umezawa's Jitte would give you an additional threat to play as well as improve some matchups. However, SFM is also pretty slow. The other option is to play Steppe Lynx, which is super aggressive.

4 Daze is a great tempo play, especially if you play Wasteland.

4 Spell Pierce is too many, as is 4 Counterspell. Vapor Snag isn't great since most creatures your opponent would want you to cast it on.

This deck definitely should have 2 Vendilion Clique

I'd consider adding a 3rd color, even if it's just a splash. Adding green gives you Noble Hierarch, Deathrite Shaman, and Tarmogoyf. Red gives you Monastery Swiftspear and Lightning Bolt. Black gives you not much. Cabal Therapy I guess. But the problem in UW tempo is that UW just doesn't have the pieces to make a tempo deck that can compete with the other tempo decks in the format, but adding 1 more color would help with that a lot.

Great start to a deck!

DevoidMage on What Is Your Magic Reach?

I chose to go for cards that i've seen in sanctioned play only, turned out not too bad.

1st attempt: Rootborn Defenses 3rd card

2nd attempt: Treetop Village 2nd card

3rd attempt: Shriekmaw 5th card

4th attempt: Mulldrifter 1st card

5th attempt: Island 15th card (Passed several Standard and EDH staples, the second card I got would have been if I would have stuck with standard)

6th attempt: Wastes 1st card

7th attempt: Taiga [Beta] 2nd card, I have played against a beta taiga

8th attempt: Locket of Yesterdays 1st card

9th attempt: Plains 4th card

10th attempt: Satyr Wayfinder 5th card

I thought this was fairly interesting. Sans Basic lands, I'd say that I have decent reach with the only real oddballs coming from a strain of EDH cards or draft cards that are older than I am.

Cool idea, but you would have to be careful of boardwipe, including from your own Avacyn, so I would suggest that you would add some instants like Make a Stand . Also, I don't understand the inclusion of Corrupted Grafstone as your playing a mono-coloured deck, so your just paying for a 2 mana tapped Plains . I would just replace with it with another land

So here is what I'm thinking. Most of my thoughts are explained in the primer.
