Shivan Dragon Discussion
3 days ago
I agree that non-standard sets over the last year have been really great. However I'm still cautious with this theme in relation to the price point of these packs considering that many of the iconic cards in magic history have already been reprinted into the ground. Shivan Dragon, Lord of the Pit and friends really don't jump out as something that I'll spend $10 a pack for. I'm sure there will be some value reprints, but it will be tough to top the awesomeness that was MM17. I'll be buying packs/cards from that set until all of the LGS's in my area are sold out. I'm not saying it can't happen, but unless they reverse the reserve list I can't imagine too many cards they'll include that I'll want (although having 2 sets in the same year that include both goyf and LotV would be awesome!).

Let's be honest, we're getting new artwork for Shivan Dragon

Ok, thats a nice solid start and a strong idea. Modern is a turn 4 format- usually non-casual games are decided by turn four in one players favour, so most cards are at the 1-2 cmc, with key cards castable turn three. I love the idea of a kor firewalker/dash setup, it has a lot of potential, especially running a lot of removal. So lets start by looking at cards, costs and interactions and alternative multiple copies. Basically, the deck as you described it should run two sets of cards- things to enter the battlefield or benefit from entering the battlefield, or things that remove your opponents threats so you can grind out a win.
Removal- Fumigate, Flame Slash, Lightning Bolt, Stasis Snare all fantastic, with this setup Blessed Alliance, Celestial Flare, Immolating Glare are all options, with Leave No Trace, Radiant Purge, Disenchant, Urgent Exorcism and Valorous Stance, with the traditional red Smash to Smithereens and the like.
Engine- Kor Firewalker ( dragon claw ? it dodges boardwipes) Ajani's Pridemate , Screamreach Brawler, Mardu Scout, (Foundry Street Denizen, Dragon Fodder, Mogg War Marshal (possibly a single Cathars' Crusade), Spirit Bonds, Impact Tremors, Mantle of Leadership!!, Pandemonium, Soul Warden/Soul's Attendant, Countless Gears Renegade, Banisher Priest, Blade Splicer, Cloudform etc
Things I'd cut - Shivan Dragon(classic, but reducing the mana costs of the deck mean stuff hits the battlefield faster and you can run less lands) Resolute Blademaster Cinder Hellion Belligerent Whiptail too slow to cast when you need them, need you to already be winning to work. Fireball Heat Ray Armored Ascension Lust for War- slow and don't suit your gameplan of bouncing creatures for effect.
Interesting cards to consider- Legion's Initiative, damage, can protect your creatures by bouncing them, You could consider looking at the white Cloudform flicker archetype, soul sisters Soul Warden decks and RDW, which with key cards being reprinted may provide some good options. There is probably a card that has exactly the effect you want or need if you look for it, so its more about imagining what you want to be doing, and checking it can be done efficiently enough to work.
The key part of it all is sideboard- this is how budget decks thrive in the modern envoronment. Cards to specifically mess with opponents, Disenchant key artifacts, Deflecting Palm a big creature into an opponents face, Combust key creatures in control decks. Its all there with the weird, optional, situation specific cards. Test your deck, see what works and what doesn't before commiting, then go out and play, because your playgroup and metagame will not condform to whatever is out here in the world, and what is best might not be fun to pilot, and thats the whole point of playing. Don't be scared of playing on a tiny budget, there are a lot of cards that have fallen out of vogue and have low prices not because of how good they are but because they are unpopular eg.Nevermore. You can absolutely win most games by piloting well, even against the best decks and players with planning and a little luck.

Hey Mojo, I am very interested in your Memory Jar worth 23.76 FTV Version, Demonic Tutor, and Dream Halls. With that being said the main priority is your Memory Jar (Just adding other cards if you happen to want more from me).
Cards I'd be comfortable trading for them (In a combination of sorts) would be:
Cryptic Command *mm
Enlightened Tutor *Mirage
Blinkmoth Nexus *mm
I also have some Dragon Cards not listed on your decklist as follows:
Shivan Dragon *Korean m14 or english m14
Let me know if we can work something out!
Aerial on Boros Burn

Why not Ravaging Blaze or Harnessed Lightning? Versatile Burn is useful in Harnessed Lightning. It is still Lightning Strike, and if you included Thriving Grubs or Thriving Ibex, you could get all the way up to a Roast or Roast+Shock. TheRavaging Blaze is also pretty good. Spell Mastery won't be hard. I would also include a few bulk rare dragons. Shivan Dragon or Serra Angel in case your opponent has hard counterspells. Cancel and the like. If you want to make it 2016.

BioProfDude that is correct, fliers are a weakness, so... Weaver of Lightning in the sideboard then. I had Sky Skiff in the deck, but it doesn't quite do as much punch as Ovalchase Dragster does for the same crew cost. Shivan Dragon is also legal in standard, but it does cost 6, not really a fast card. I guess I'll try out Weaver of Lightning either in the main deck or the side

Bad Magic is a format that was created to solve many of the problems with modern, legacy/vintage, standard, and other formats that require more than $90 to play at a competitive level.
The rules of the format are rather simple. rule 1: decks may contain only cards that have been listed to be below one and one half US dollars ($1.50) in the past SEVEN days of play, by one of these listed sites: [http://www.mtgprice.com/, http://www.tcgplayer.com/, http://www.starcitygames.com/] This restriction is to prevent people from selling a card that has a value greater than 1.50 on one website they have control of to allow its usage that would be otherwise excluded
rule 2: decks may use a sideboard that contains no more than 12 cards
pros to using this format: The formats rules heavily restricts the usage of net decking, and forces the more overpowered decks to "rotate" out of the format. The format is extremely easy to get into for both new and experienced players alike. Provides a deck building challenge.still have access to powerful cards such as Seedtime, Shivan Dragon, and Dark Ritual
