Sanctum of Ugin Discussion

StankP.I. on Modern Emerge with primer

2 weeks ago


I love the Bone Picker idea. I'll have to try it out and see if i can reliably cast it. If I can I'll bet it's an easy 3 or 4 of that walks the line just right between easily cast-able early pressure and emerge-able CMC.

I also haven't tried out Sanctum of Ugin, though the color requirements in the deck are already pretty steep. I feel like leaning on recursion for my deep fiend looping over sanctums is the way to go, but it warrants a try.

I tried Shriekmaw but I found that it was too narrow of a way to get the deep fiend out and didn't really increase consistency in any way. I could see an argument for a Shriekmaw over a push or a terminate, but I really hate going down on interaction.

The Serum Visions VS. Thought Scour debate I feel has a clear winner here, though it may not be obvious at first: The ideal turn 2 play in this deck is Faithless Looting, discard 2 Bloodghast, land, Hollow One. to make that work you have to have the hollow one in hand (and preferably the bloodghasts too). While thought scour fuels bloodghast and tasigur better it comes up short when trying to set up hollow one, and between the lootings and the fetches tasigur comes out easy enough already.

All that said, I've been playing Sultai Shadow much more than this deck at FNM lately, and haven't re-tuned it in a while. Let me know if anything gives some good results

A good consideration would be Sanctum of Ugin to chain your eldrazi titans together

sylvannos on Budget Tron Help Me Please

3 weeks ago

My go-to budget Tron list I recommend to help grind FNMs is:

2x Forest
3+ Fungal Reaches OR Pinecrest Ridge
1x Ghost Quarter1x Inventors' Fair
1x Urza's Factory OR Sanctum of Ugin
4x Urza's Mine
4x Urza's Power Plant
4x Urza's Tower

This gives several utility lands, while also having a good balance of colored mana. The important thing to remember: you absolutely cannot have lands come into play tapped and you will lose games to decks like Burn and Death's Shadow if you have to pay life. The obvious choice is Grove of the Burnwillows for this very reason. However, that obviously will eat your entire budget.

Pinecrest Ridge is probably the best replacement. Not only does it have the option to just tap for colorless and come into play untapped, you can get the or you need to search for Tron pieces or cast Pyroclasm.

4x Sylvan Scrying
4x Ancient Stirrings
4x Expedition Map
2x Talisman of Impulse
4x Chromatic Sphere
4x Chromatic Star

This is pretty standard for a Tron list, the exception being Talisman of Impulse. While you don't want to be paying the life against faster decks, having the ability to tap for colored mana and still get Tron on turn 3 is more helpful when you're on a budget. It means you can play multiple World Breakers, add Inferno Titans, or use whatever budget options you have lying around when some of the more expensive fat cards (like Karn Liberated or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth) aren't available. That way, you're not relying a whole lot on cards like Myr Battlesphere or Steel Hellkite.

4x Ratchet Bomb / Oblivion Stone
4x Pyroclasm
1x All Is Dust

You need boardwipes. Pyroclasm is especially important because you will lose to a turn one Slippery Bogle is you do not kill it immediately. They will untap on their turn two and toss an umbra on it. By the time you can use another piece of removal, you'll be so low on life that they can simply play another one or get you with Dryad Arbor. The same is true against turn one Glistener Elf. They will use something like Apostle's Blessing to deal with whatever you have once they untap.

You can skip on red and go straight mono-green, but then you just have to accept that you lose to Infect, Bogles, and Burn. If these aren't in your meta, replace Talisman of Impulse with Mind Stone or Relic of Progenitus and the lands with basic Forests and a 2nd. Ghost Quarter.

The All Is Dust is probably the only non-budget card I'd recommend you have because of how much 3+ color decks get BTFO'd on turn three when you slam it. If it's still out of your budget, replace it with a Platinum Angel.

That's 50 cards total. Your last 10 cards should be:

  • Huge
  • OR win conditions
  • OR removal

Basically, choose a combination of the following that fits into your budget (I put them in order of importance):

Based on what you've posted, I'd recommend something like:

2x Wurmcoil Engine
2x Sundering Titan (you can power this out on turn 3 via Talisman of Impulse and laugh at some Jund player's $2,000 mana base as they concede)
1x Worldbreaker
4x Relic of Progenitus
1x Spatial Contortion

All that's left is your sideboard. Based on the above, I'd go with:

2x Ancient Grudge
1x Defense Grid
1x Ghost Quarter
1x Grafdigger's Cage
3x Nature's Claim
1x Orbs of Warding
1x Spatial Contortion
3x Thragtusk
1x Torpor Orb
1x Warping Wail

Wow! very cool idea for a deck! Mirror Gallery is sweet isn't it?

Fabricate, Expedition Map, Weathered Wayfarer(land tutors to get a land that can give you colorless), Sanctum of Ugin, Fauna Shaman, Fierce Empath, Survival of the Fittest, Sylvan Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Hoarding Dragon. Lots of good artifact and creature options here. These ought to make the deck more consistent.

Hope some of these help! Good luck!

each has their own benefits and pitfalls but they only kind of do a similar thing.

Sanctum of Ugin is a land drop that takes up a turn of possibly playing another tron land, but it also helps ramp up until you sac it. It also has the benefit of putting the tutor'd card directly into your hand.

Conduit of Ruin is expensive to play. In the deck I use him in he works as a gap closer. With conduit you its only a 6 CMC that you have to cast, being himself, to get the tutor effect. And he reduces the cost of the first creature cast by 2 mana each turn. His main downside is that the tutor goes on top of your deck rather than into your hand. But he is also a handy 5/5 blocker in a pinch.

Thanks for the suggestions @Politricks and -Orvos-!

I might consider Sacred Ground, should my meta develop towards more land destruction. So far, it would not do enough for me though!

Conduit of Ruin is interesting. But wouldnt you rather want a second Sanctum of Ugin then, as it basically does the same?

Love Colossus. One of my favorite cards and one of my favorite decks before Sanctum of Ugin rotated(then I just built it in modern). I like the direction so far, but I feel like it can be faster. Let me ponder and do some testing and get back to you. +1! Happy Brewing!

Pheardemons on Mono-Blue Eldrazi Tron

Here's a link to a deck to look into

I have honestly and seriously considered moving to mono-blue eldrazi. I have a special place for the artifact version though. I've been playing it for years.

Cards to consider: Conduit of Ruin, Sanctum of Ugin, Karn Liberated, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Eldrazi Mimic, Drowner of Hope, Elder Deep-Fiend, and of course the Titans. Especially Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

Obviously you could do a subtheme of scions which may include other cards. I had a friend who had this deck in paper form and the deck was very consistent. I don't remember his 75, but if you playtest and refine this deck it can be very good.
