Signal Pest Discussion

Dorotheus on Darksteel Family (MODERN)

I don't really know you're budget if any, but I recently helped someone develop a deck that is based exactly around the same ideas you have here.Other cards he is running now are:
Tasigur, the Golden Fang It's a one-of and it's just good.
Mana Leak
Stubborn Denial as long as you have something with an Ensoul or Litch, it's a 1 mana counterspell, definitely the strongest addition you can make
Inquisition of Kozilek
Fatal Push
Vault Skirge played correctly can keep aggro and burn decks at arm's reach, and against removal decks they will wait until you try and Ensoul one of these, but you won't in that case, unless you have perfect answers.
Signal Pest Usually also unblockable and can take over the game just like Vault Skirge for the deck but gives the deck an interesting aggro line in combination with the Tempo/control aspects

Worldslayer is just not good enough without mitigating the equip cost, or cheating it out or something.
Darksteel Juggernaut again just not worth the mana cost, and once that's out, more of the "do nothing" artifacts can come out for interaction
Rogue's Passage you just won't need it because your 5/5s will be so threatening and/or evasive that they will be the removal and pressure a lot of the time.

Hopefully that helps you get a leg up. Good luck.

I agree with the lightning bolt swap. Well i believe Signal Pest helps in that situation.

Signal Pest might be worth considering, I think it fits your strategy nicely.

Goblin Rabblemaster or Mogg War Marshal doesn't fit your current curve, but fits the theme as well.

You could do with fewer lands, since you have low mana cost, cantrips, and non-land mana sources. About 16 lands would be ok. You could make space for a whole set of Signal Pests in your mainboard that way.

Also: Why Paradise Mantle over Springleaf Drum? The one time during a game where it is really important (turn 1), mantle is a turn slower than drum (since mantle gives the creature it attaches to an ability, and has to wait for summoning sickness, whereas drum taps a creature as a cost for its own ability).

Looks pretty good. +1 Some ideas to think on:

Artifacts: Maybe Paradise Mantle or Springleaf Drum. Cranial Plating might be decent, too.

Creatures: 1xSteel Hellkite. Also, Memnite, Signal Pest.

Lands: 1xBuried Ruin, 1xTomb of the Spirit Dragon

Sideboard: Pithing Needle, Elixir of Immortality, Ratchet Bomb, Disenchant, Oblivion Ring.

The deck seems a little too slow and has way too many counters for an agro deck. I would replace all the counterspells with some amount of these


Vault Skirge

Master of Etherium

Signal Pest

Blinkmoth Nexus

Some number of Spell Pierce is fine in the sideboard but that really in the main.

Yay first comment! Is Nightveil Specter good it's a good flyer but, you won't always be able to cast the exiled card all the time without mana fixing. Your curve only starts at 2 think 1 drops would be nice: Hypnotic Siren decks with big creatures, Jace's Phantasm sideboard against graveyard decks, Judge's Familiar sideboard against combo deck, Siren Stormtamer against removal heavy decks, Signal Pest and Blight Keeper are just good.
