Settle the Wreckage Discussion

Recon419A on Boros Tokens Mk. 3

16 hours ago

SoulsSlayerKnight I got some more games in last night and found that I killed myself twice with Adanto Vanguard , so per your suggestion I've dropped it from the deck. For now, I've replaced it with Goblin Instigator to complement the 1/1s go wide strategy; I may put Cavalcade of Calamity in that slot when it becomes standard-legal. I did notice that I wasn't mana screwed with only 22 lands, which is probably a result of how low my curve is. I'm debating whether I want Heroic Reinforcements in combination with Cavalcade of Calamity (since it would have to be cast before combat and would prevent Cavalcade from triggering that turn), although for the time being it's certainly a good card to have in the deck and I actually slotted four copies of it instead of Banefire since it feels like a more reliable win condition (although that may not be true outside of best-of-one formats when someone has the option to sideboard in something like Settle the Wreckage ). I have yet to extensively test the new deck-list but I feel like the changes are in the right direction.

Darth_Savage on Anointed Procession Deck with Cats

2 days ago

The newer deck isn't meant to be an aggro deck, it's essentially a combo deck. Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives do not belong in an aggro deck, they don't do anything the turn they come into play to pressure your opponent. Luminarch Ascension is essentially the card you win with, you hide behind the fogs until you get 4 counters on it, then start spamming angels, which Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives can double. the 2 planeswalkers make tokens Nissa's -2 will pump all your tokens, additionally the most common way of killing planeswalkers is creature damage, the fogs prevent that. If anything the deck shouldn't have any actual creatures, it should have 3x Holy Day (more fogs) and 3x Settle the Wreckage or Day of Judgment (board wipes)... Actually, I'll edit it to reflect that...

There are tons of people who just love to smash with creatures and that is OK. Anointed Procession is not designed for that sort of deck. You can build a combo deck around it, but a tribal cat aggro deck has no place for it, or for the ramp creatures really. Go back and look at my first comment, I suggested a bunch of cats because when I looked at your deck I saw an aggro deck, a deck with 30 creatures is an aggro deck by default most of the time, the issue is your focussing on one card Anointed Procession which doesn't belong in an aggro deck.

@ SnowLeo I think you should take out Storm Fleet Aerialist and get +1 Healer's Hawk and Nightveil Sprite both help you in these situation (one with gainig life and the other with finding your pieces of removal/anthem) and you will way better playing them as your top for most part. That free 1 could make a Lyra into the main because from my experience If she comes you are most of time more than just safe. You could also take one of your 4 drops for another Dovin (gaining life from him and getting yourself safe because he takes some attention make nice combination) but he is more dependant on how much chainwhirler will be played. One more thing, life gaining threats works better that Settle the Wreckage especially vs mono red (they sometimes play Banefire and Frenzy aggro is always floating). Hope it helps a little!

Archangel_of_Entropy on Kaya's Judgement(RNA)

I had an epiphany. Just play the Remorseful Cleric and Fall of the Thran combo with Kaya and it's all on curve with keeping up Settle the Wreckage Mana up.

I am evaluating her The same as Liliana of the Veil Lily gets played in decks that compliments the plus ability and the minus, both not great but in an attrition matches. Fall of Thran would be fun. I am still tinkering with some ideas to clean up a B/W control shell.

Adding Karn, Scion of Urza and Treasure Map  Flip with the new card Smothering Tithe is something else I was looking at with lots of removal...

So, initially I looked passed this brew, but after a few moments, I realised you might be onto something. Maybe converting this deck into a Taxes style deck. Adding a couple of artifacts like Silent Gravestone Treasure Map  Flip with Karn, Scion of Urza alongside Settle the Wreckage for added removal maybe Kaya can be a win con.

Hexaflexagon on Teysa's Deadly Rewards! *Primer*

I'd take out Gutterbones for Vraska. How is your manabase holding up? It seems a bit stretched, as you are running 5 cards with , 7 cards with double and 6 cards with double , with 5 more in the sideboard. Also, for the sideboard, you might want Cry of the Carnarium against Drakes and Aggro and Deathgorge Scavenger (replacing Sentinel Totem) for graveyard decks and aggro. You may also want to consider for the sideboard:

Sorry if I was talking too much, I just really like this deck idea and I want to give all the help I can.

Good Luck,


renegade_ronin on Mardu Land Destruction

How well has this deck done so far? I've brewed something similar with limited success. I'm considering putting Settle the Wreckage in but wasn't sure how counter-intuitive it was to give an opponent more land when I'm trying to destroy their land. But given how often an aggro deck has beaten me I'm considering changing my position on it.

ArchonBlue on Verity Circle In U/W Control?

1 week ago

Honestly Verity Circle looks way too slow for Modern. Maybe if you're playing a deck with a lot of activated abilities that require tapping like Grim Lavamancer you could stick one in the sideboard. Seems way too narrow and lethargic for mainboard play.

I love mainboard Settle the Wreckage because decks don't tend to play around it and its fantastic against any graveyard recursion deck (Dredge, Phoenix, Hollow One, etc.)

I don't think you need Oust or Azorius Charm in your build. They're really subpar cards to begin with and you already have an extra Snappy to hit Paths in your graveyard.

I think Mana Leak should be Logic Knot. Way more solid counterspell. Also why aren't you running Glacial Fortress? Hallowed Fountain as a 4 of seems pretty rough against Burn or any kind of Lightning Bolt deck, of which there are A LOT in the current meta.

I agree with you that Jace should be a 3 of, or else maybe run one less Terminus.
