xaarvaxus on Merciless rage needs upgrading

1 week ago

Getting some better lands like Dragonskull Summit and Sulfurous Springs to replace Cinder Barrens and the like is a good place to start.

A couple better mana rocks such as Talisman of Indulgence and Worn Powerstone would also be good additions.

I like the addition of Glint-Horn Buccaneer from you maybeboard as it acts as a discard outlet as well as giving added value to your madness and other discards.

Any flashback Increasing Ambition, retrace Throes of Chaos or dredge cards Shenanigans all work well with the host of discard outlets in the deck. Madness obviously works best but those others are good as well.

snishi on Blue Moon

First time playing Modern since War of the Spark. Wasn't too sure of the meta at my LGS so I packed a little too much gy hate.

Round 1 vs. Dredge

Opponent was playing Dredge with Ox of Agonas.

Game 1:

Blood Moon on t3 limited his options which I Remand-ed back to his hand. No green meant no Life from the Loam to get his 5th land to hard cast the ox. Bounced 4 Prized Amalgam via Thing in the Ice  Flip Flip and attacked for lethal after some burn to the face.

Sideboard for Game 2:

Out: 4 Opt, 1 Force of Negation, 1 Serum Visions

In: 2 Grafdigger's Cage, 2 Anger of the Gods, 2 Ashiok, Dream Render

Game 2:

Started with an Anger of the Gods, Remand, Thing in the Ice, 3 lands, and a Lightning Bolt. T3 opponent casts Cathartic Reunion discarding 2 Stinkweed Imp and a Golgari Thug to dredge for 14. My T3 I remove Narcomoeba, 3 Prized Amalgams and a Bloodghast with Anger of the Gods. Drew the second Anger to keep his board clear. Tried to block Awoken Horror but when I showed Cryptic Command + Mystic Sanctuary he scooped with ~7 card left in library.

Round 2 vs. Eldrazi Tron

Game 1:

Opponent couldn't get t3 tron but managed a Chalice of the Void on 1, no can-trips or bolts for me. Played a Karn, Scion of Urza and decided to take an Expedition Map to try to get tron instead of a Mind Stone (He forgot that he couldn't cast it with Chalice). Remand-ed a Thought-Knot Seer twice and Cryptic-ed his Reality Smasher which flipped a Thing. Tried to stabilize with a Walking Ballista but before attacks I Archmage's Charm-ed to gain control of his only blocker. Game 2.

Sideboard:

Out: 3 Opt

In: Damping Sphere, Summary Dismissal, Ceremonious Rejection

Game 2:

I had my only Snow-Covered Mountain in my opening hand which threw off my t3 Archmage's Charm and t4 Cryptic. I got lucky when my opponent still couldn't get tron until t5. Couldn't counter a Thought-Knot Seer and he took a titi but I also had a Magmatic Sinkhole to remove it. Kept countering his threats until I managed to get Ral, Izzet Viceroy out, -3 his Ballista on 1, he pings Ral and I keep using his +1 and countering his spells until I managed to ult Ral. He scoops.

Round 3 vs. Rakdos Vampires

Game 1:

Opponent was playing a vampire-themed midrange deck with Vampire Nocturnus, Gifted Aetherborn, Stromkirk Captain, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord along with the standard black cards like Liliana of the Veil, Fatal Push, Dark Confidant, and Thoughtseize. T1 Cavern of Souls was a pain but I could still draw a card with remand to dig for removal which I found in a bolt + snapcaster. I won with another snapcaster + bolt.

Sideboard:

Out: 2 Opt

In: 2 Anger of the Gods

Game 2:

Removed Kalitas with sinkhole and Force of Negation-ed his lotv when he tried to remove a titi which he did push later. Stabilized at 7 life by slamming a blood moon to get rid of Stensia Bloodhall and Lavaclaw Reaches but next turn he played Chandra, Awakened Inferno which I removed via bolt + sinkhole. Had to race him and beat him to death with a snapcaster and a Brazen Borrower. Won at 2 life.

Round 4 vs. Boros Burn

Game 1:

Had to remand a Boros Charm twice until t4 blood moon. Stabilized at 2 life but almost died to Searing Blood on my titi. Beat him to death with an awoken horror.

Sideboard:

Out: 2 Opt

In: 2 Anger of the Gods. At this point I didn't have any Dragon's Claw in my sideboard so I knew this was my worst match.

Game 2:

Had to mull to 6 which opponent was happy about. Fought through two Eidolon of the Great Revel and stabilized at 6 life. Slammed Ral, -3 on Monastery Swiftspear, and +1 until he ulted, countering every burn spell without using a snapcaster. Opponent scooped after I used bolt + mystic sanctuary + ral emblem. Showed me a hand of 3 Searing Blood + 1 Path to Exile (from sb to get rid of titi).

Overall:

I did not lose a single game this FNM but I knew I got very lucky vs Eldrazi Tron Game 2 and burn both games.

Changes to mainboard:

Out: 1 Snow-Covered Mountain In: 1 Steam Vents

Note: Even though most lists run 1 Mountain it still felt really bad having it in my opening hand. This time I wasn't punished but I can't rely on that every time. An additional steam vents keeps me at 5 red sources without blood moon and it acts as an additional Island for Mystic Sanctuary

Changes to sideboard:

Out: Relic of Progenitus In: Shenanigans

Note: Tonight I wasn't against a Stoneforge Mystic deck that my friend uses so I was pretty vulnerable to any artifact deck. Since I already have 6 cards in the sideboard that hate on graveyard decks and only ceremonious rejection for artifacts, I decided to put a recurrable hate card that can help deal with a variety of decks.

DPhoenix on Love You Dead (Feldon of the Third Path EDH)

1 month ago

-1 Burnished Hart +1 Pilgrim's Eye : Burnished is meh for Feldon, as spending 6 mana (3 for reanimation and 3 for activation) for ramp isnt something that this deck can do reliably.

-1 Insolent Neonate +1 Fires of Invention : The enchantment makes you less reliant on your commander if he isnt on the board. Extremely powerful when both are active.

-1 Rummaging Goblin +1 Merchant of the Vale : The instant and 1 costed loot effct is relevant and then you can cast him to still get the looter, which you can use right away, as he doesnt need to tap.

-1 Shattering Spree +1 Spine of Ish Sah : You have quite a lot of artifact hate, which is ok for your meta. This artifact will remove a problematic permanent for you.

-1 Tectonic Reformation +1 Shenanigans : Not so sure that a mono red deck can afford to discard lands, so its a possible card to substitue for shenanigans, which is reusable artifact hate thanks to dredge 1 which is very very good in this deck.

The Shadow Market 3

Enchantment

MR

Pay 1 life: Discard a card and put a trade counter on this card, you may do this anytime you could cast a sorcery and only three times a turn.

Remove all counters from this card and discard your hand and draw X cards where X is the number on counters on this card plus 3 if X is 7 or more you may instead search for 5 cards from your library put them into your hand than shuffle your library

"Slaves? Contraband? Price for a life? Try the Black Market, what we sell is much harder to find and get, more illicit and by far more valuable"

Pheardemons on Mono Red Shenanigans

Ramunap Ruins I can understand I guess. Could get that last little bit of damage in but whether or not it is worth the life lost is the main question.

Hmmmm...have you tried Forgotten Cave at all before this? Not saying it is bad, I've just never tried it myself. Was wondering your thoughts.

Personally I've ways regretted not having board wipes in the main. Maybe space for some Sweltering Suns for the cycling when you don't need it and keep Anger in the side as backup. I know Ensnaring Bridge is great, but I've always felt like I needed some board wipes.

For the specific strategy this is going, I feel like Shenanigans should have one mainboard and Shattering Spree or Shatterstorm be the sideboard artifact hate. That is up to preference and playtesting though.

Do you think this is fast enough (or doesn't need) any rituals to speed up the turn one plays? Well...taking Goblin Rabblemaster limits the turn one plays. At this point it is really only Blood Moon that you could get with any kind of consistency. Maybe not. An idea to consider though.

Some things to think about.
