Porphyry Nodes


At the beginning of your upkeep, destroy the creature with the least power. It can't be regenerated. If two or more creatures are tied for least power, you choose one of them.

When there are no creatures in play, sacrifice Porphyry Nodes.

This appears to be more of a punishment-type enchantment list than Stax. If you want to go more down the Stax route, I'd advise pumping up on your number of mana rocks and decreasing your average cmc.

Stax is built on utilizing any of the tenants of Sac/Tap/Tax. For sac, I suggest Descent into Madness, Grave Pact, Tainted AEther, Martyr's Bond, and Porphyry Nodes. For tax, Aura of Silence also doubles as removal. For other powerful options, Humility + Night of Souls' Betrayal is pretty mean, and Lightmine Field shuts down token decks if your taxers aren't up.

If you want to add a handlock/discard theme, Necrogen Mists, Bottomless Pit, Oppression, and Words of Waste are all useful.

You probably want to include some additional Wrath/landscrew effects. Damnation, Decree of Pain, Wrath of God, and Infernal Darkness are all good.

Mana Vault and Gilded Lotus are powerful tools to help you outresource opponents, especially after an Armageddon. It would also probably be worth it to include Orzhov Signet.

Tinker until you come across a build that feels right. Happy brewing!

Glad to see this thread again!

Urborg Justice is a good one, I really enjoy it in Kuon.

Serenity can be a really oppressive card in the right deck.

Porphyry Nodes is another one that can completely disrupt a table.

actually Boza, Porphyry Nodes triggers at the BEGINNING of the upkeep, which would be before he can even animate the land. Porphyry Nodes would destroy a creature, and then he could still animate the land during the upkeep.

Do not animate your land in your upkeep as it could be killed by Porphyry Nodes. In any case, I cannot think of any way why you would want to animate it in your upkeep...

Hey guys short question. I could not find an understandable answer so I try it here.

How does Porphyry Nodes interact with for example Mishra's Factory? Should I pay attention when to turn this Land into a creature on my turn when Porphyry is in the game?

Thank you in advance!

Dovin Baan might shut down aspects of Elves?? Fumigate would also help. Ummm Trinisphere, Porphyry Nodes, Culling Scales? As for Burn, Kor Firewalker/Dragon's Claw are great options.

Cut those Bontu from the SB. I would also maybe cut the Scarab God, depending on how it performs (seems kinda durdly for Modern, but I haven't played against it yet).

Porphyry Nodes is not only an enchantment, it should never kill your own creatures unless the tokens player gets ahead with Intangible Virtues.

The only downside is it kill only one creature each turn. However, if you're on the draw after winning turn 1, you can put yourself in a really good position by just playing it ASAP as your opponent watches in horror as it slowly eats away at all their spirits and soldiers.

It would probably go better is a Porphyry Nodes build, my deck does have some creatures.

Besides, until late game this deck focuses on locking the game, and at that point I have enough finishers.
