Necro on Selvala the lifelink queen

I missing Souls Sisters here Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Suture Priest Essence Warden. When you play creature token, you gain life. What about Mimic Vat ??

As some protection, try use Riot Control and Blunt the Assault. Thanks to your general is possible to play it.

I missing two cards with potencial : Paradox Engine and Phyrexian Processor.

If you play Archangel of Thune, why not second half of this combo Spike Feeder.

Try Aura Shards for cleaning table with your tokens.

And for your token production? Oketra┬┤s Monument. If you have too much tokens, try Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

And what discard ?? Pearl Medallion Mind's Eye Dromoka Monument Seasons Past The Mending of Dominaria

TheWrongBunny on Frustrating Lifegain Crap (PLEASE HELP ME)

3 weeks ago

Sorry to hear you are getting frustrated with this. i would personally say there is not enough consistent life gain. creatures like Nyx-Fleece Ram give you nice early game defense and consistent life gain. and for combat tricks with a bit of life gain i like Riot Control

Feel free to have a look through my life gain deck: Ajani's lifeforce (budget) (note it is completely make from my spare cards but it serves me very well)

Hey guys.

I'm building a Medieval-themed deck. I haven't decided on the deck archetype/strategy yet, but I'm thinking something along the lines of Mardu enchantments and pillowfort.

I'm mostly building this joke deck as a way to make puns in my playgroup, but I'm open to competitive card suggestions too.

I'm putting cards in the deck like To Arms!, Assemble the Legion, Castle, Portcullis, Incite Rebellion, Riot Control, and Infinite Authority.

Got any card suggestions that are good/powerful but also satisfy my deck's flavor requirements?

Here's the link to my deck. The deck is still under construction, so I haven't made up my mind about a lot of things.

Hope you find the deck's Number 1 card interaction as hilarious as I did!

Lich's Mastery + Harmless Offering to your opponent created the deck's namesake, GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

Hey, man. Finally got the chance to look at it, thanks for linking it to me. Here are my suggestions:

Swap

There are a few really good upgrades you can make on the cheap. I'd say almost all the upgrades below are strictly better except Divine Visitation which is new to MtG, since it's a part of the new Guilds of Ravnica block. Trading out Sigil is just personal preference.

Cut

You've got too many enchantments eating up space for things that are more important like your land base. White has a really hard time ramping and tends to be the most costly color, so you want to draw as much of it as possible. I'd aim for 35 lands minimum, but 36 is probably preferable. Every land counts.

Add

Six of the eight add-ins below are lands. You need a hard to deal with board wipe like Wrath of God and I'm really surprised you didn't immediately go for Riot Control, since it's a table staple. If you really don't want it, I'd go straight for the Path to Exile.

Expensive Upgrades

Mono-colors can get some crazy mana numbers going, but white has terrible ramp, cards like Land Tax and Thawing Glaciers will help you get lands on the board, while the multiplier artifacts will keep your mana plentiful.

So, I would definitely work in Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Dawn of the Dead. Being able to recure your creatures is going to be really helpful with Ayli.
These are some creatures I run in my deck: Wall of Reverence, Divinity of Pride, Wurmcoil Engine, Archangel of Thune, and Rhox Faithmender. Some of them are pricey and may not fit exactly what your going for, but Divinity of Pride is pretty solid.
I run Proper Burial for value on sac triggers. I also like Riot Control, I have a lot of tokens in my meta so the creature count can get crazy, but depending on what decks you play this may not be a good fit.
Good Luck!

Thanks for the tips and suggestions! I really do like the versatility of Vanish into Memory and will be making that switch for sure. Energy Arc and Herald of Secret Streams seem to be interesting, but I've had several instances in my playgroup where the flying from Abzan Falconer has come in handy on the defense, and the lifegain from Riot Control has kept me alive from minor poking that didn't warrant a removal spell. I may even need to go down my awaken pet cards of Coastal Discovery and Encircling Fissure! Mirrorweave might replace my Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Urza's Ruinous Blast.

As for your deck... it seems sweet! I think I'll even replace my Burnished Hart with a Thaumatic Compass  Flip. Would definitely recommend a Nimbus Maze as an untapped triple land for Kozilek. I also recommend Drownyard Temple just as a recurrable land. Cards like Anticipate and Winds of Rebuke seem to be underpowered as you have other cards in the deck that do their job better. Would recommend Metallurgic Summonings as a less frail Docent of Perfection  Flip or Talrand, Sky Summoner. You do have an amount of tapped duals/utility lands but how has Amulet of Vigor been? Then again everyone's meta is different so I don't know how low and fast your deck needs to be. My deck tries to be as creature light as I can since I'm usually trying to wipe the board, but Nezahal, Primal Tide, Kefnet the Mindful look good with their ways to protect themselves and to draw cards.

First off, love the deck, I've loved noyan dar control ever since I saw it win a couple months ago. I've been trying to build a similar deck (Mother, May I?) but I'm having trouble fine-tuning it, so I figured I could ask you for help? I'm not a control player at heart, so it's no wonder, I even used to hate counterspell and playing on other people's turns haha. Anyway I have some suggestions to make this deck stronger

Like Herald of Secret Streams v Abzan Falconer? Vanish into Memory/Gush v Glimmer of Genius? Vanish can stop attacks, combos, save noyan dar, and gush can save your lands (like kefnet can). Energy Arc v Riot Control? Energy arc is a hidden gem. It can ramp you a bit with enough awakened lands, it can fog, it can fog someone else if you want to bargain, and it can be a combat trick in so many ways.

I want to mention Godhead of Awe and Mirrorweave too. Awe can buff your creatures while controlling others, and mirrorweave is an instant, one-sided sweeper (each other creature becomes a 0/0 elemental). Oh, and View from Above and Tolaria West. Tolaria west can tutor for Inkmoth Nexus/Scavenger Grounds/Pact of Negation, and view from above can pump a land a bunch. Hope this helps!

Hi Wooliestkey5654

Turbo Fog is an interesting deck for Modern, it's budget friendly so easy to pick up and works well against creature heavy metas (Humans, Hollow One, etc). Personally I'd suggest you might want to replace:

You haven't listed a sideboard, so maybe something like; 2x Jester's Cap, 3x Relic of Progenitus, 2x Nevermore, 1x Riot Control, 1x Settle the Wreckage, 2x Blind Obedience, 1x Peace of Mind and 3x Approach of the Second Sun as a starter? To be fair Approach of the Second Sun could be a main-deck card as another win condition. Another option for win-cons is Planeswalkers; Gideon of the Trials, Gideon, Champion of Justice and Nissa, Worldwaker being the first ones I'd think of.
