Yeah

White gets draw from some incidental spells like Wall of Omens , from specific requirements, like Aura/Enchantment, Equipment/Artifacts, Sram, Senior Edificer , Puresteel Paladin , Mesa Enchantress , Kor Spiritdancer , Dawn of Hope , but also has just plain hate, like Spirit of the Labyrinth and Alms Collector .

Blue obviously has just plain card draw.

Black pays life for cards Underworld Connections , Blood Scrivener , Necropotence , Phyrexian Arena , Sign in Blood , Live Fast , Read the Bones , or Cruel Bargain . You can also Sacrifice Creatures for Cards.

Red gets cards for limited time, Experimental Frenzy , or it comes with Discard Wheel of Fortune Faithless Looting , or Burning Inquiry .

Green is already flush with cards similar to yours, Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for example.

Ahhhhh the Sunforger, one of my all time favorite cards :)

I'm guessing by your current package you've already seen Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control by precociousapprentice.

Also here is my own sunforger deck: Super Smash Boros | Firesong & Sunspeaker EDH


Let's talk Sunforger first.

Based on the budget here, I-for the life of me-can't figure out where Enlightened Tutor is. It tutors sunforger and is tutorable by sunforger.

Since you have over 25 artifacts(including creatures and lands) and have an fairly optimized mana base, Inventors' Fair will be a another good include. Incidental lifegain and Sunforger Tutor in a pinch. Along those lines, if you're really going into Sunforger, Puresteel Paladin and Leonin Shikari (or the not as great Auriok Windwalker and Brass Squire ) will be useful for multiple activation every turn cycle, making it easier to lock down the board with multiple opponents. But then again, I do see you only run a few equipment otherwise so they might not suit you at all.

Anyway, sunforger targets!

  • Argivian Find is nice recursion, can get sunforger or be gotten by sunforger.
  • Tithe gets Mistviel plains. On that note, Expedition Map might want to be here too.
  • Dispatch might be a better Swords or Path in this deck. I usually get a lot of flack for this card but I've never had a problem with 25 artifacts.
  • Intimidation Bolt over Batwing Brume . Brume can't be used with sunforger, I-Bolt is a better fog effect because it stops all attacks, meaning no attack triggers. It's also removal.

Finally, with about 10 good targets, I think Isochron Scepter could be squeezed in here.


So those are my thoughts on Sunforger.deck. Some cut suggestions:

  • Serra Ascendant
  • Mindblade Render
  • Dark Impostor
  • Crucible of Worlds
  • Phyrexian Arena
  • Settle the Wreckage
  • Batwing Brume
  • Backlash

These are just cards I find weak or that I am not sure why they're here. I don't know your meta. These are not necessarily what to cut for my suggestions.

Hope this helps!

Kor Spiritdancer and Puresteel Paladin could go on our maybe list :). They'd help with the card draw.

Are you going to post the rest of cards we have in the pages on here? Then we can play around with what goes in and figure out synergies.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd: its a work in progress but i've had this list up for a while now.



lukas96: yes it is subjective. you can't just state that the worst aura is objectively better than the best equipment. equipments aren't slow if you build the deck properly. i've already listed multiple ways to get them onto creatures easily, but i'll do it again for you. Puresteel Paladin , Mox Opal , Sigarda's Aid , Kazuul's Toll Collector , Brass Squire .

Mono white might be the way to go. It has the consistency and the best creatures to protect themselves and carry a sword or more likely Batterskull . There tons and tons of threads regarding SFM and death and taxes.

Modern equipment is niche af. And fragile. Puresteel Paladin equipment or rhe cheerios variants have had success but only in smaller places. And that was a while back too.

If we loom at SFM success it came along standard caw-blade which had resiliance with Squadron Hawk . In legacy blade decks ( same story using resilient creatures) alongside protection. Ud want a deck with enough bodies, that can protect themselves even in small ways. And relevant equipment

DuTogira: so what if i don't have Sigarda's Aid in play? that still leaves a double striker with a sword which is really good. i'd argue that every single creature i mentioned is absolutely good enough to use in a deck focused around use of equipment. Puresteel Paladin is 100% mandatory. you hold onto your skepticism if you want, i'll hold onto my optimism.

PlatinumOne what if you don't have Sigarda's Aid in play? None of the equipment carriers that you just mentioned, save for maybe puresteel, are good enough to warrant playing on their own. An equipment deck needs to use its equipment to help already good creatures hit an even higher ceiling. I'd argue that the only creatures that modern has that fit that bill are Mirran Crusader and Phyrexian Crusader , MAYBE with Puresteel Paladin (but he's far better in Cheerios where he can be a draw engine). Maybe Sram, Senior Edificer makes its way into modern equipment lists too... but I'm gonna hold onto my skepticism because I've gotten stuck in modern goldfish bowls a few too many times to jump into a new one so eagerly.

i think Umezawa's Jitte will eventually be unbanned as well, so thats the first obvious equipment. the "swords" cycle like Sword of Feast and Famine are also really good, especially on double strikers. modern has a ton of good creatures that can hold equipment, and just so many ways of "cheating" those equipment onto a creature, i'm honestly surprised someone hasn't figured out a way to break it already.

i'm honestly baffled by people here saying that modern doesn't have good equip users. theres Kor Duelist , Swiftblade Vindicator , Vault Skirge (an artifact creature that helps get metalcraft working for Puresteel Paladin or Mox Opal ), Champion of the Flame , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Kazuul's Toll Collector .

lets say you have a double striker equipped with Sword of Feast and Famine , and a Sigarda's Aid in play. you attack, deal first strike damage, untap lands and opponent discards a card. then before normal damage is dealt you flash in an equip (such as a different sword), attach it to the creature for free, then deal normal damage and trigger the effects of both swords. seems good to me.
