Shatterstorm Discussion

severininfurs on R/B God of Revenge (Help Wanted)

Hey! I just started playing recently and after realizing I wasn't even halfway to finishing my Jund deck, I decided to flesh out a similar Rakdos control deck to yours. I like your list, especially Beseech the Queen which I may very well add to my own deck as a 1 of. It's nice for finding that 3rd or 4th Demigod of Revenge.

I would recommend going up to 2x Crumble to Dust in your sideboard. Without any other land destruction, I feel like you will really want to see this vs Tron and even vs UW control. Another possible alternative is Shatterstorm over By Force. If you like the ability to play it on 2 or 3, maybe try a 1-1 split between the two to see which serves you better when you sideboard it in. Vandalblast or Shattering Spree are options as well, though I understand Shattering Spree isn't the cheapest of cards. That being said, being able to pay just 1 to destroy 1 artifact is nice.

One last suggestion is depending on your meta, adding in a 1x or 2x Devour Flesh to your mainboard might be alright vs something like Death's Shadow and it's alright vs boggles until they get out Leyline of Sanctity as well. You can always slot it out if you don't need it in the matchup, or use it on yourself for the life gain in the most dire of situations.

Shatterstorm or Vandalblast to really wipe out the artifacts.

goblinguiderevealpls,
Thanks much, though I have to confess it's not a total homebrew ... Ponza's no Tier 1 of course, but it can periodically spike a major tournament (e.g., this year so far we've had #15/454 at SCG Open Richmond, #6/151 at SCG Modern Classic Atlanta, #1/547 in Modern at SCG Invitational Roanake, #9/847 at SCG Open Dallas-Ft Worth, and #15/904 at SCG Open Indianapolis), and I've been heavily influenced by the brewers and pilots of those decks.

It's also deceptively fast ... ignoring mulligans and opponent interaction, we have 3 mana on T2 ~60% of them time, 4 mana on T2 ~15% of the time, and 6 or more on T3 ~10% of the time. Sure there are plenty of much slower games, but the look on opponents' faces after Turn 2 Land Destruction and Turn 3 Inferno Titan makes all the slower games worthwhile!

I had totally forgotten about Feed the Clan; thanks much! Also, thanks for the thoughts on Shatterstorm vs. Hellkite Tyrant. I've been considering upping my Lightning Bolt count because of UR Storm ... with your inputs I will go ahead and do so.

And yeah, Atarka's Command and Skullcrack both rot for sure :-)

Thanks again, and good luck to you as well!

clayperce,

First off, I'm impressed at how well you've done with a non-meta, jank homebrew list, it looks very slow for modern but not with mana dorks and the like!

I play both decks you asked about, you're right to be running Ancient Grudge vs affinity, some alternatives or additional hate for artifacts

Destructive Revelry

Shatterstorm

Shattering Spree

Nature's Claim

Thats about all you can do vs affinity in gruul colors, destroy artifacts and/or creatures

Molten Rain is surprisingly good vs affinity cuz it blows up Spire of Industry and Inkmoth Nexus

Both decks are bad matchups for you because they outspeed you by a lot, and unfortunately most of the hoser spells are in white, i.e.

Stony Silence, Kor Firewalker, Leyline of Sanctity

As far as burn, theres not much you can do outside of leyline to prevent a Lightning Bolt in your face, you CAN however try and stabilize with cards like Feed the Clan or Obstinate Baloth, Kitchen Finks, the latter 2 which you already have plus thragtusk

especially if the burn player doesnt have access to green, where they would respond with Atarka's Command to stop the lifegain, so take care if the burn player has RG open

I feel like Shatterstorm would perform better in this deck, since you dont have to wait a turn to steel artifacts and it usuallu sweeps nearly their entire board, plus its cheaper on mana and can be cast turn 3 with a mana dork, which is usually when affinity is all in if they havent won yet

You should definitely run 4 Lightning Bolt and maybe a Searing Blaze and/or Searing Blood, since all 3 can kill an Inkmoth Nexus equipped with Cranial Plating that would otherwise be lethal, as well as major burn threats like Eidolon of the Great Revel, good ol' goblin guide and monastery swiftspear, and you can wait until they declare attacks to answer the creatures

But yea, a slower homebrew is going to have trouble with top 5 aggro decks, hope that helps your matchups against them!

Best of luck next modern tournament

Blood Artist is one of the best vampires ever printed! Id recommend 4 of them

Bloodghast is an early game attacker that seldom dies for long and is a late game BEAST

Blade of the Bloodchief at least 2 of these is essential for competitive vampires

Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Kalastria Highborn are cheap in mana yet very potent threats even in modern

Gatekeeper of Malakir vampire Geth's Verdict on a stick!

Olivia, Mobilized for War haste outlet

Bump in the Night, Lava Spike with flashback

Pulse TrackerShadow Alley DenizenVampire CutthroatVampire Lacerator are all relevant turn 1 vampires

Lastly, Vampire Nocturnus is a SCARY finisher if not removed by your opponent

Sideboard:

Cavern of Souls no more countering vamps

Vampire Hexmage kills planeswalkers, Arcbound Ravager and many more

Fatal Push kill spell

Blood Moon mess with opponents lands

Relic of Progenitus/Tormod's Crypt/Leyline of the Void graveyard hate

Shatterstorm/Shattering Spree artifact/affinity hate

Rain of Gore anti-lifegain

Inquisition of Kozilek/Surgical Extraction to hit combo pieces

+1 from me! I used to run modern vamps and rhe creature base looks similar, just took it out of storage to look for suggestions on what you dont already run :)

mucho bueno seor

Forceofnature1 on Riku Tokens Synthetic Polymorph Warp Aurora Fun

Builder's Bane, By Force, and Shatterstorm are good, Indomitable Creativity is a little more expensive but has good flavor for your deck cuz you can destroy your tokens to get real creatures. Release the Gremlins is similar flavorwise and lets you destroy other people's stuff and still benefit.

Vandalblast is good for big group if you wanna hose a lot of people, and Smash to Smithereens is available for spot removal at instant speed (or you have a plethora of green spells).

My favorite card, although it's weirdly conditional so best with big boards, is Decimate

Definitely need artifact hate. I tried to build jank & let others deal with problems thru the enormous card draw but that isn't working.Vandalblast & Shatterstorm.

I'm also considering bringing in maybe 1 more tutor & maybe some yard hate for the decks who rely too heavy on recursion.

clayperce on Sideboarding Ponza for competitive(ish) meta?

1 month ago

Ok, after everyone's comments, here are my thoughts ...

GOOD MATCH-UPS (Bant Knightfall, UW Control, GBx Midrange, Jeskai Control, Death's Shadow): Mainboard is fine; no sideboard slots needed.

AFFINITY:

RDW:

TITAN SHIFT:

  • The more I think about it, the more I think Beast Within is the key. Say an opponent casts Scapeshift and sacrifices 7 Lands to fetch 6 Mountains (basics and non-basics) and a Valakut. All the Lands enter simultaneously and 6 Valakut triggers go on the stack. With the triggers on the stack, I kill a Mountain. The trigger from that Mountain will resolve and I'll take 3 damage. But the triggers from the other 5 Mountains fizzle, since "the ability will do nothing if [my opponent controls] fewer than 5 Mountains other than that new one by the time it resolves" (source).
  • Beast Within is also superb against a resolved Primeval Titan.
  • I might be able to catch an inexperienced pilot with Crumble to Dust, but an experienced pilot will wait until the last second (i.e., fetching them with Scapeshift) to play their Valakut. Crumble may still be worthwhile though ... partly for free wins against less experienced pilots, but mostly because hitting Stomping Ground will leave most decks with only 10 Mountains ... depending on the board state, that will often not be enough for lethal.
  • Blood Moon is of course amazing in the match-up, but post-board they will almost certainly have Engineered Explosives and Reclamation Sage to deal with it. Still, Blood moon #5 may be worthwhile.

ELDRAZI AND Gx TRON:

HATEBEARS:

GW COMPANY:

UR STORM:


The bottom line (for now anyways) ...

Main: 1x Obstinate Baloth

Sideboard:
