clayperce on artifact hate low in modern?

2 days ago

Vman,
I think it's gone up because we had tons of choices in the past too: Kataki, War's Wage , Creeping Corrosion , Shatterstorm , Smash to Smithereens , Vandalblast , Hurkyl's Recall , and more.

But they didn't make the Top 20 in the past. Now they do.

This deck is going to be dead in the water until it can get its Aetherflux Resovoir up. I recommend Whir of Invention, Gamble, Fabricate, Reshape, Planar Portal, Inventors' Fair, or Hoarding Dragon so you can find that your reservoir ASAP.

Preordain, Ponder, Brainstorm will also help you sift for the right combo cards very quickly get those pesky lands out of the way when you're hunting for artifacts.

Speaking of lands, add a Reliquary Tower if you really want that Psychosis Crawler to get ugly.

Lotus Petal is an auto-include that you'd never hate to draw with this deck.

What happens if they nuke all your artifacts with a Shatterstorm? Cycle though them again with Drafna's Restoration, Elixir of Immortality, or Feldon's Cane.

You'd also want some alternative win cons and do dumb things with your artifacts if your reservoir gets exiled, so let's do some crazy shit. Let's make everything artifacts with Mycosynth Lattice, make them indestructible with Darksteel Forge, then nuke everyone else's stuff with Nevinyrral's Disk, and make lots and lots of indestructible ugly beasts with Karn, Scion of Urza. You've got Mishra's Self-Replicator in there which can be fun if you can afford to keep paying for tokens. You know what works great with that? Mana Echoes.

Aetherflux Reservoir is an awesome card but with the right deck you can have a lot of fun even if you don't draw it.

Suns_Champion, thanks for taking a look at my build. You've got lots of nice options suggested here, and I really appreciate it. I'm going to look into working in Bludgeon Brawl, which looks like could really push Valduk over the top. Mycosynth Lattice is also very tempting; I just worry about a Shatterstorm wrecking my day. I also checked out your suggestion at your Well of Ideas page. I've got lots to consider.

Again, thanks for checking it out. Now, to improve....

That seems like a really good compromise, my friend! Janky combos ususally don't hurt people's feelings, and the combo pieces synergize just fine with the rest of your deck even if the engine isn't assembled.

Now that you've narrowed in on tokens/aristocrats with potential combo, it's easy to select haymakers for that deck. For starters, Chief Engineer is one of my favorite cards of all time. Blinkmoth Urn, too. Welding Jar to save your best piece in the event of a Shatterstorm. Go Brittle Effigy instead of Oblivion Stone, and then use Nevinyrral's Disk as a mass removal.

And then I think you need more token production -- Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Whirler Rogue, Thopter Spy Network, Hangarback Walker, Thopter Foundry, Thopter Assembly, stuff with Improvise and Affinity abilities, the new Saheeli Rai (and the old one I guess!). Hope this helps(: I'd cut down on the flicker synergies since artifact sacrifice + recursion + cost reduction lets you use similar effects, but all your pieces get to be artifacts. But that's just my advice to save some room in this list.

Raff is SO GOOD in this deck, like a 50 cent Vedalken Orrery. Play him. Always (:

StoryArcher,
First, the deck looks really fun. A few thoughts though, in no particular order:

  • Land Destruction is not a wincon. If it's working for you, that's awesome. But I worry that 1x Thrun, 1x Nissa, and 1x Strombreath may not be enough to actually close out the game.
  • Your mana- and dork-base would benefit a little from -3x Forest, -1x Birds of Paradise, +3x Green Fetchlands (Windswept Heath are the least expensive, but any of them are fine). Because the Fetches allow us to grab Stomping Ground as well, they give us a slightly better chance of getting the 2R we need to cast Blood Moon on Turn 2, which would allow you to drop a Bird for something better in the late game. Here's a piece on our Ponza Mana Simulator if you'd like to play with the numbers yourself.
  • I like Ancient Grudge better than Artifact sweepers, personally. But if your meta demands sweepers, Shatterstorm is strictly better than Creeping Corrosion.
  • Unless your meta is just overrun with Tron and Titanshift, 4x Crumble to Dust may be excessive. Surgical Extraction is another similar(ish) option, which is great in other match-ups as well.

Also, I TOTALLY get the desire to make a deck competitive "without necessarily carbon copying someone else's card list", but I always recommend starting with other lists and then tweaking (sometimes drastically) to fit our meta and playstyle. If you haven't already, I'd strongly recommend looking at these:

Good luck (and good skill) with the deck!

CavusCanis on Grafted Ponza

Geralf_Cecani! Thank you for your input! If I was building a more expensive deck, I would take a lot of these suggestions. One I will be adding is Magus of the Moon because of his 5.00 price.

One of the important goals is to keep this deck below 200, which takes Tarmogoyf out immediately. As for the value engine in Ghost Quarter and Ramunap Excavator , I'm trying to swerve away from the tempo strategy and simply win games as quickly as possible. Plus, with the amount of land destruction we already have, we can easily disrupt our opponent in the turns that matter so we can get far enough ahead that their removal proves futile, assuming they even get a land out. Ponza is inherently resilient to Control and Tron simply because of how seriously these problem matches lean on their mana bases for the right play each turn.

With that in mind, I put this up without a complete sideboard. I had meant to finish it, but it was late when I posted this deck. Your sideboard suggestions will definitely be put in, along with Magus. As for Bramblecrush, its technically a weaker Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, considering it doesn't get us ahead of our enemy except through removal, while the Moss has removal and ramp in one package. Again, that being said, Affinity and fair decks like Humans are probably some of the most problematic matches due to their ability to swarm a board with creatures before we can get their lands off the board. So we need sweepers, most likely Anger of the Gods, as well as Shatterstorm for Affinity.

This is the list I gathered my information from. I hope this post was helpful! Thank you for your feedback! :)

BraxTune on Mono Red Dragons Modern

Wow! This looks like a very versatile deck! Some very serious plays in here. Its been a while since I thought dragons could become relevant but dang, I'd be fearful going head 2 head with this one.

i do have a few questions, mostly revolving around Kozilek's Return and the inclusion of only one Shatterstorm. It looks, from my view, that you already have decent ability to boardwipe with Anger of the Gods, is a 2 damage boardwipe necessary on the sideboard, especially, if you cannot activate the secondary effect? Shatterstorm seems like such and appropriate response I cant imagine not sideboarding at least two.

pedros234, I use the following artifact/enchantment removal cards in my Omnath, Locus of Armageddon v2.6 deck: Bane of Progress, Rite of Ruin, Subterranean Tremors, Shatterstorm, Wave of Vitriol, and Hellkite Tyrant. On a side note, Hellkite Tyrant + Tireless Tracker = easy victory. Hope this can give you ideas to overcome your meta.
