Polluted Delta Discussion

Rayze_Darr on My take on a Modern Blue/Black Mill Deck

Use the Crab. Be the Crab.

I strongly recommend a fourth Hedron Crab, is what I'm trying to say. Run Polluted Delta, since it'll trigger the Landfall when it comes out, and then again after you throw out whatever land you search for, ie Watery Grave. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse can do something similar for cheaper, too.

Do not underestimate Crab.

I'd be a bit hesitant to include Brainstorm here. The reason why the card is so good is you can abuse it with shuffle effects. This is mostly done by fetchlands like Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats etc. It allows you to draw 3 cards and shuffle the 2 worst cards in your hand away. Without shuffle effects, you draw three cards now, but then for the next two turns you don't get to draw anything relevant. I'd either replace some of your lands with fetches or replace the brainstorms for other cantrips.

The mana base Needs some work ;) several Things: you are running Fatal Push which gets better with every fetchland you run. you currently run 7 fetches and 6 Shocks. you should Change that to 9 fetches and 4 shocks.

Since the deck is predominantly black-blue, i would suggest:

Fetches (11): 4x Polluted Delta, 3x Scalding Tarn, 2x Bloodstained Mire

Shocks (4): 2x Watery Grave, 1x Scalding Tarn, 1x Blood Crypt

I also think Faerie Conclave addint to the faerie Count for sprite will almost never come up, Mistbind Clique championing it even less. and Creeping Tar Pit is almost always the better manland (also taps for black, which is important).

I am also not sold on Blightning because its a 3cmc sorcery that is most of the time just a lot worse than Kolaghan's Command. i would replace it with another kcommand without looking back ;). Blightning is a trap because it gives the Opponent choice and decks like burn or affinity could care less about their life total.

thats it for now, but i'll come back to this. it fascinates me :D

Final note: ub faerie lists run Mutavault, but its very probably too greedy in grixis. yea, it is .D

Hey SlimJim83 and thanks for your time. I tried the cheap fetches, no fetches and expensive fetches. Both the fetches you recommend are just too slow and thats why the emphasis on the mill ain't in the hands of the Hedron Crabs. No fetches proved to be better than cheap fetches, even with the crabs. Ofcourse Polluted Delta was the fastest, but I want this to be budget.

I've also tried the difference in Tendrils and Sorrow on some other deck before and I preferred Sorrow then. Can't say I don't prefer it now too.

Heya! Let me break this down for ya! :)

Manabase needs work. I'd add 4x Polluted Delta and 4x Watery Grave to help you fix your colors. -(2-3-4) swamps -(4-5-6) islands as a base range.

I feel like Grisly Spectacle costs a bit too much for instant speed removal, even though it does mill. I would definitely try to add Archive Trap to the list somewhere! Replace the 4x Black Cat with either 4x Thoughtseize or 4x Inquisition of Kozilek as they remove a precise card like a wincon, etc.

If you ever need to cut things, I would cut out the higher CMC spells, as they are too slow for the modern format. -3 Lich Lord of Unx -4 Belltower Sphinx -2 Consuming Aberration and add in 2-4x Archive Trap 4x Jace's Phantasm and 1-3 of either Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek, whichever you didn't use to replace Black Cat.

Hope this helped!

also technically you can't have Polluted Delta because its color ID is blue and black
