Rebuff the Wicked Discussion

ArchonBlue on Azorius Blue/White Control

@IzzetFanatic, I'm curious as to why you recommend Remand and Mana Leak? The draw ability is definitely nice, as is the slightly lower mana cost, but it seems like mid to late game it would be pretty easy for my opponent to override the additional cost in Mana Leak or to just play whatever I return to his hand from Remand the following turn. What do you think about Rebuff the Wicked or Hindering Light? Is Counterspell illegal in Modern?You're right, Search Warrant isn't great and a Detention Sphere would be way better. I also thought about replacing it with a Martial Law, although maybe that isn't as good because it is creature specific.

Funkydiscogod Maybe Rebuff the Wicked would be good, just to make sure your opponent can't destroy any of the ETB disabler as you cast a high-punishing creature? And Inquisition of Kozilek for discarding.

Ghastly Conscription is actually pretty good. And yeah, Dubious Challenge is pretty clever, makes me wish it was black, I'll think about what to do with it.

slayingmatt1234 appreciate the thoughts! The reason why I have Sundering Growth is for the possibility of creating an additional 8/8 token that I can get from Grove of the Guardian. I do like the idea of switching out Rebuff the Wicked for Gods Willing. I did have a Nylea, God of the Hunt in here originally, but only having one didn't make much sense to me since the probability of drawing it was pretty slim. I thought about either putting 2 in or getting a couple Time of Need but had other cards I wanted in the deck so I kind of scraped that idea.

I am intrigued about taking out 2 Knight of New Alara for 2 more Wilt-Leaf Liege. I am also considering adding Swords to Plowshares, just trying to keep the deck at 60 cards so need to work some stuff in while leaving other stuff out.

Hey man, I see that you are a Selesnya fan! Being one myself, and seeing you want some deck help, let me give you some general advice.

I actually made my own 50-60$ Selesnya deck for a casual series I made for my friends, which you can check out here (by the way, please check out the rest of the decks out in my budget series. I made one for each guild). I'll just give you a few suggestions from that deck which should help you.

Instead of Sundering Growth, I run Qasali Pridemage because unlike growth, since you don't have any tokens the cat wizard should give you more board presence.

Instead of Rebuff the Wicked, if you are trying to protect your creatures I recommend you run either an aura that protects them like Shield of the Oversoul or a spell like Gods Willing, because not only is it cheaper $ wise, but it can make a creature effectively unblockable for a turn if you like. Dauntless Escort also has a similar ability to Reknit, although I guess you can see it coming, unlike an instant.

Similarly, Primal Rage could be turned into more offensive power with an Unflinching Courage instead. If you want the passive to all creatures, perhaps a one-of of Nylea, God of the Hunt would be best. She is great with Wilt-Leaf Liege because the liege adds 3 green devotion.

Some other general advice I can make is that I think you would be much better off dropping the Knight of New Alaras and instead upping Wilt-Leaf Liege to a 4-of, because unfortunately the human knight is boltable unless buffed while the elf is not.I also recommend putting in some better removal. My deck has a bunch of options you can consider for that. Also, Tireless Tracker is another card worth considering. Hope this all helps! Feel free to ask me if you need any more help.

I ran Akiri and Bruce together.

Meekstone does some serious work when your beat stick has vigilance.

Hammer of Nazahn has some utility. Indestructible and casting an equipment auto equips.

Something I've been using in boros is the monarch cards for extra card draw. It can make you a target but its an interesting mechanic. Throne of the High City

Depending on how people are taking your creatures. You can look into the red/white counter spells. Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Dawn Charm, Illumination, Rebuff the Wicked. Nothing is better than smacking down a blue player with an off color counterspell.

Good luck with the deck.

@Ballzanya this is the budget list of a much more competitive modern deck also based around tainted Remedy. There's a link to it in the description.

In regards to the cards that do not appear in either list:Blessed Alliance isn't bad, and it's still in the maybe board for the main deck, and will probably replace Oust in this list.

Lingering Souls is great, but in the main deck I replaced it with Timely Reinforcements because unless there's a lot of affinity in the meta gaining 6 life is more valuable than being able to chump flyers in most games. It will most likely make it onto this list soon though, replacing Vampire Nighthawk.

I don't think I will get enough use out of Mana Tithe or Dismemberto run either. If tainted remedy is out at the same time as Tree of Perdition then I can reuse it's ability to drain my opponent further. (Opponents life is 20 then 13 then 6 then 0) and it does this without the need of extra card.

I will have to think about Rebuff the Wicked, its a solid card, I just need to think of something I could cut for it.

I used to play a black/white tainted remedy deck in modern. You definitely need to play four Blessed Alliance, and two Beacon of Immortality. Lingering Souls is optional in this deck, but I found that it gives you blockers to help you survive long enough to kill with the remedy out. For the sideboard you could play Mana Tithe, and Rebuff the Wicked to stop attempts to destroy a tainted remedy.
