Secure the Wastes Discussion

Personally I'd cut Quicken , Divination , Mindswipe , Secure the Wastes , and a few Dissolve .

I would add in Opt , Lightning Helix , Dovin's Veto and some more good planeswalkers. Also another land or two.

Hi,

While I have no vast knowledge of Rhys - I never played with and against him - I do believe that I could make making some solid observations.

Which cards do I feel would be really interesting for you to consider:

This should give you some food for thought :-)

Good luck!

You need more ways to dig for the combo.

The New Finale of Devastation is 2GG to find one half of the combo. Also combos well with T2 Druid into T3 Vizier off of Finale. It's also a wincon, because you pump your team for a billion and grab a small creature with trample, any one will do (just pick one).

Chord of Calling Also works.

Mistcutter Hydra dies to Path and Push, and Secure the Wastes tokens don't have haste. That's why most Vizier decks play a copy of Walking Ballista .

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip allows you to dig through your whole deck for a creature once you have infinite mana.

I'd try to go with playsets. Like he mentioned, it will help with consistency and therefore power. You already have cards in the mainboard that having 4 of would be great. Raise the Alarm , Honor of the Pure , and Secure the Wastes are awesome. If you want to overrun your opponent, most of your offensive threats should be 3 converted mana cost or less. Anything above that should very likely be removed. Otherwise it'll be hard to race people. Legion's Landing  Flip helps here. I also love Spectral Procession . It's great. If you do go a heavy token route than Intangible Virtue is awesome. Also, if you want to keep the deck mono-white without splashing for black, then Signal Pest is good. Black offers options like Lingering Souls and Zealous Persecution .

I think (Don't quote me) that a 2:1 ratio between Tokens producers and token Enhancers is a good starting point.

Here are some suggestions to up the number of stand alone token production that you should consider:

Secure the Wastes - It's and instant!

Tendershoot Dryad - Tokens EVERY upkeep

Martial Coup - Board wipe with upside, sometimes.

Hooded Hydra - Flexible

Arachnogenesis - A personal pet card, no one see's it coming. Kinda stand alone, requires you to be attacked

Imperious Perfect - Low drop with a very nicely costed ability

Wolfbriar Elemental - Pretty underestimated

Verdant Force - very high costed, but another every upkeep effect

Ant Queen - pretty bad creature, but an abusable, cheap mana sink

Trostani Discordant - Homeward path on a stick that pumps and makes tokens

Jade Mage - Meh, but its an early token producer if you need it. Late game it can be abused too.

You are severely lack card draw and there are a few abusable cards for tokens:

Collective Unconscious

Shamanic Revelation

Slate of Ancestry

Skullmulcher

Regal Force

Be careful with how many of these you put in since they rely on your board.

There are safer ramp options, in my opinion, in green:

Farseek - Can take the place of Selesnya Signet

Nature's Lore - Can replace Talisman of Unity

Kodama's Reach - Can Replace Commander's Sphere I say replace, but you can always up your ramp suite by a couple cards instead.

How does Secure the Wastes combo? Is it just having tokens to sacrifice to start it?

lagotriphaSorry not Spectral Procession I was thinking of Midnight Haunting . A few options that might be better suited for this deck would be:

  • Oath of Gideon . 2-fold value, tokens + loyalty counters.
  • Raise the Alarm . 2 cmc, instant speed.
  • Martial Coup . Doubles as a board wipe for 7, but 7 is pretty high for Modern. Thought about this card a lot, but I wanted to be stronger against fast decks since most of Modern is fast.
  • Secure the Wastes always able to maximize value if needed, at instant speed.
