Cadois on Yes, This Deck is For Real

shub Very well, people hate it. But I have to wait to play it until I have some counter-removing on board, like Chisei, Ferropede or Power Conduit.

I run an atraxa superfriends deck that runs into a similar problem with artifacts and the immortal sun. Fortunately most artifact removal is also enchantment removal, so there are lots of options here lol. My personal favorite one is Aura Shards and since you have more creatures than I do, it may work even better for you. As for what I would remove, I personally was never too happy with Power Conduit because it seemed too slow in my deck when I ran atraxa as infect. If you want more suggestions, feel free to check out my list My friends are super

ersatz_olorin: That's understandable. One thing I have learned about MLD is that as a strategy you either fully commit to or don't do at all.

I think Anafenza, the Foremost could work well. You have tutor access to black as well as a suppliment of mana dorks so that you can also use Rest in Peace if you don't care about your lands. Academy Rector will let you dump Fall of the Thran into play just before your turn (albeit not with RIP) and as you mentioned, the Power Conduit helps buff your creatures.

Of course it would be pure jank in modern. The cost of each of these cards is way too high individually.

I think Anafenza, the Foremost would be the direction to go, seeing as provides a limited Leyline of the Void effect, as well as making a +1/+1 subtheme possible, although janky, for Power Conduit

Of course Nev's Disk and Darksteel are better, that is a fairly well established combo. I wanted to see if anything could be done with the jank that popped into my head, and I've gotten pretty good results back. It will never be a cEDH combo but it will be funny if it happens (for you at least).

It's not a bad combo, but with the moving pieces involved, something like Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk does more for less cards.

At the end of the day a deck that's runnign an MLD strategy will probably want green for all the land recursion it offers, meaning that you're at least running 3 colours. You could using something like Anafenza, the Foremost or Karador, Ghost Chieftain which wouldn't be bad, but generally golgari or selesnya are easier than abzan.

The other thing is, including cards like Power Conduit means you want to make sure that ouutside of that particular combo, they're not just dead draws.

in modern, MLD will generally be played as either gruul or jund, since you want to run stuff like Fulminator Mage over white which has limited land hate options in modern. That or Grixis, where your line is something like Fulminator Mage, Kolaghan's Command, Fulminator Mage, Snapcaster Mage, Kolaghan's Command, Fulminator Mage.

That's a good point RazortoothMtg, it definitely is easier to assemble. The fact that it sits on board does get you more value over time I believe. Maybe I'm just thinking too much from a 1v1 perspective (not considering how much more disruption will be present) but this combo would eventually create more ETB triggers if going the landfall route. It also allows the Glacial Chasm synergy. And if you're opponents are getting out of hand again, you can always drop something like Vampire Hexmage (or Hex Parasite as mentioned above) and you can just wipe the board again. A lot of your cards would be good for stalling to set up the final combo.

TLDR: The initial combo I believe offers more synergistic potential since it's staying on the board.

lilgiantrobot Hex Parasite is a great option, but the reason I chose Leyline of the Void in particular is b/c it only effects the opponent. Thus the player can take advantage of II part of Fall of the Thran but the opponent cannot (also why I ruled out Rest in Peace. Hex Parasite is a lot better than Power Conduit tho because you can choose to bring it back to zero, destroying all the lands again.

Although thinking about it, is it better to try and do all this cute stuff with bringing back my own lands, or is just wiping the board repeatedly better? If you went that route you'd need all the mana rocks of course.

That makes sense, there are several ways I could go with this.

  1. If I wanted to be cute I could take advantage of Landfall triggers from two lands re-entering the battlefield every turn, if I did that I would have to include some land sacrifice like Aggressive Mining (this particular card would add a color but you get the idea). Arcane Spyglass would interact with Power Conduit, so that may be a possibility. Aura Fracture would make sure no one was taking advantage of enchantments but me. This could also combo with Glacial Chasm, saccing it every turn then bringing it and another land back from the yard, so you never have to pay the life. Lots of fun options there.

  2. The Gitrog Monster would provide some value, but that's also adding a color.

  3. There's synergy with cards like Constant Mists as well.

btw griffstick this is just an idea that occured to me that I thought might interest some people, I hate land destruction and would probably throttle myself before the other people at the table could get to me :)

I was thinking about making a combo deck revolving around

Fall of the Thran + Leyline of the Void + Power Conduit

If you pulled it off late game, it could wipe out a significant number of lands for good, then let you recover over the course of a few turns, while everyone else is left out to dry.

Maybe include cards like Smokestack to really seal the deal.

What do you think, does it have potential, or is it just a pipe dream
