Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Discussion

2 weeks ago

Generally white has the best legendary support:Day of Destiny/Thalia's Lancers/Kitsune Healer/Yomiji, Who Bars the Way followed by green with Reki, the History of Kamigawa/Time of Need

There is also a of legendary lands you could consider running as they are usually better than a basic of that color.

White: Eiganjo Castle

Blue: Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Black: Shizo, Death's Storehouse

Red: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep

Green: Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

Guftders on Modern Master 2017 Spoilers/ Speculation

DemonDragonJ Just to point out, Primal Command was reprinted in Archenemy and Duel Deck Eldrazi vs Zendikar.

Cryptic Command has only been reprinted in the past two Modern Masters sets, which isn't really much when you consider the limited print run off those sets.

All in all, I'm really badly hoping that CC gets reprinted, because I haven't got my playset yet, and it WILL spike back up if it doesn't see another reprint.

Also I'm taking a look at the last land slot remaining between Selenya Guildgate and Simic Guildgate. There's about 13 lands between them legal in Modern. Removing all cards part of a cycle of lands and cards eligible for a reprint, we get Shimmering Grotto and Seraph Sanctuary of which I believe Shimmering Grotto to be the choice here. Of the cycles I omitted, Shelldock Isle, Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep could be reprinted as a utility land.

But odds are, we'll get Grotto for more mana fixing.

Looks nasty (in a good way). I did play her with some more Stax Elements to prevent the opponents even more.

Cards you may have already considered should be:Cataclysm /Death Cloud /Destructive Force /Devastating Dreams /Sheoldred, Whispering One /Slum Reaper /Wildfire /Descent into madness /Mimic Vat /Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep

Cheers Mate,

hi Draw_Wurm, cool deck! anything mono red in commander is cool.
My favorite thing with mono-red is mana doublers: Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, and Gauntlet of Power. If you cut a few of your underwhelming utility lands like Darksteel Citadel, Great Furnace, Blinkmoth Well, and Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep for basic mountains then you can get even more power from these mana doublers that rely on basics. You're already running trading post so you have some artifact recusion in there to get back your doublers in case they get blown up. as a bonus you get extra power from Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for have more mountains too!
personally i would run Burnished Hart over Soldevi Sentry. as more mana = less problems.

also if you are going voltron with your commander, you could throw some OP equipments in there, Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine are my two favorites. thrown in a Godo, Bandit Warlord and you have an equipment tutor to give your commander some evasion and some extra value when he hits.
have fun and enjoy mono red!!!

If you're willing to change colours, and you should consider adding green, Captain Sisay, Day of Destiny, Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Kitsune Healer, Heroes' Podium, Helm of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra! This is just from a Sisay EDH deck.

Willow Satyr Just cruelly steals legends.

Mirror Gallery To play either as many copies from your hand or better yet, copy your legends, or if you don't have Mirror Gallery out, Parallel Evolution is a board wipe with flashback.

If you wanna drop the cash Karakas is stupid good, or hell Eiganjo Castle, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, and Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers are all stupid good.

With Glitterfang and Oni of Wild Places, you need to return creatures to your hand. Why would you do that? You have no ETB (enter the battlefield) effect. I'd also remove all the artifact creatures, except maybe Crumbling Colossus who can be useful only if sacrificed with Fling. I don't like Hanabi Blast because you have to discard. I'd remove Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep and keep it for a deck that has more than 2-3 legendary creatures. Steel Overseer is made for a deck consisting of almost exclusively artifacts. You don't have much flying creatures, so you have to hit hard and fast in order to win against decks with many flyers.

There are no Mountains or Swamps for Jund Panorama to search for. You should remove most of your mono color cycle lands and replace them with basic lands.The Kamigawa legendary land cycle is worth looking at. Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep in particular is cheap and powerful.More tribal cards like Urza's Incubator would probably help too.

Deck looks good! I like the idea of a ton of Legends, and it has a bunch of other fun little odds and ends for funsies.

Given the heavy emphasis on having your Legendary cards, here's a few cards to consider: Day of Destiny, Eiganjo Castle, Empress Galina, Hero's Blade, Konda's Banner, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, Sakashima the Impostor, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Yomiji, Who Bars the Way
