Rout Discussion

austintayshus on The art of Aurelia Stax

Hey, I'm here to help as requested. This is a very interesting idea that I haven't seen before, +1.

Even though your mana curve is pretty low, I'd recommend adding a few more lands. However, if you find that lands are consistently not your problem, then you're probably fine with 32 lands. Tuning a mana base has never been my strength.

One spicy card to consider is Helm of the Host . With Aurelia, you can generate infinite attack steps (as long as you 'stagger' your aurelia attacks). Could be a quicker way to finish a game, although I'm not a fan of infinite combos like that.

If you want more stax-y effects, also consider Storage Matrix . I'm a little surprised you're not running more boardwipes, being a stax deck in white. I'd also recommend Rout and Wrath of God and Cleansing Nova .

I would also recommend swapping Chromatic Lantern for a cheaper mana rock. I'd only recommend the lantern for 4-5 color decks that desperately need the fixing, but 2 color decks like this should be fine. Perhaps Prismatic Lens ?

You might also want to add Unwinding Clock . I think you have enough artifacts to make it worth it.

Lastly, I'd also like to recommend Fall of the Thran as it's a land destruction spell that isn't too painful for your opponents.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

It might be a little expensive but Rout is always a good choice for creature wipes. The extra 2 to make it an instant is solid when you're in a bind. It's not always the best bet,but it can come in clutch.

And to keep in touch with the oketra theme also have Oketra the True to keep making tokens

Nevermore is a good way to stop a commander from coming out.

Also board wipes are a good way to control creatures. Maybe add Rout and Blasphemous Act ?

Rout is an instant if you pay 7 for it. Return to Dust could also be fun in this deck. Also, have you thought of making Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage your commander and abusing stax rocks like Winter Orb and Storage Matrix and Static Orb .

Bewmz on Midrange Budget Esper Token Control

I have apparently been summoned?

So lets start with the first bit match_lighter hit on: Modern format works off of all sets that were at one point standard legal starting at 8th edition to present as well as the new Modern Horizons set which drops into legality this friday, minus a relatively small ban list.

Temple of the False God , Brainstorm , Mystical Tutor , Rout , and Sol Ring were printed in sets prior to 8th Edition, so those are out.

Mental Misstep , Ponder , Preordain , and Gitaxian Probe are all banned in the format.

Lastly, Death Grasp was only ever printed in a commander product which means it is not a Modern legal playable.

match_lighter is also likely right, if you really want to play Esper in modern you have basically two routes:

  1. Go straight control, no fancy frills. The deck exists and is doing actually alright but it is mostly a UW shell making a minimal black splash for sideboard cards and like one main deck walker in Kaya, Orzhov Usurper in small numbers.

  2. You could play what ye olde players would call "solar Flare", or Gifts Control. Deck plays some number of effects that let you put cards in your graveyard ( Liliana of the Veil , Thirst for Knowledge occasionally) in conjunction with Gifts Ungiven , Unburial Rites , and some big dumb thing like Iona, Shield of Emeria / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite to reanimate and bring the opponent to a screeching halt. Because you're playing Gifts, you wind up play single copies of cards or multiple cards with similar effects with different names (eg. Wrath of God , Damnation , Supreme Verdict , Day of Judgment ) so that you can force your piles with the card to do what you want. Gifts over the years has leaned more into strict Esper, but there are people who still play the old 4 Color lists with green for access to Life from the Loam and solid removal effects like Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy . I can swing back through and link you some smaple deck lists in a bit.

some inexpensive board wipes include Fated Retribution , Akroma's Vengeance , End Hostilities , Hallowed Burial , Phyrexian Rebirth , Rout , and Solar Tide .

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is another way to turn opponent's lands into creatures. as is Quirion Druid and Verdant Touch

As for enabling your frostwaker there is Fyndhorn Brownie , Magewright's Stone , Niblis of the Breath , Puppeteer , and Puppet Strings . some of those are bound to be inexpensive, and adding in a handful of boardwipes and enablers for that strategy would lend itself to doing that strategy more often.

Hey, deck looks great. The main thing that I would say is that this deck runs no board wipes which may be something to consider as it is oftentimes very helpful to have one in many situations. The ones that I would probably consider would be Blasphemous Act , Wrath of God , and Rout as most edh decks should run at least three. Also have you considered Mirrorwing Dragon ? It provides another nice Zada, Hedron Grinder effect.
