Silkwrap Discussion

@catpocolypse thanks for the suggestions! This deck is my girlfriend's and I'll discuss the suggestions with her, but just for some quick considerations:

  • we play mostly casually, so most of our decks doesn't use sideboard, we kinda have our own meta and it's creature-heavy, so Silkwrap most likely NEVER leaves the battlefield since we hardly use any non-creature removal... the perfect exchange would be Path to Exile (which I've seen in your list). The only problem with 'Path' is it's price, that's why we don't use it (same with Collected Company, we try not to spend too much xD). We do consider going full casual instead of modern and just run a playset of Swords to Plowshares

  • the main (and only) card draw in our deck is Inspiring Call, and I agree it could have more, but since my GF loves playing aggro it just kinda fits the "all-in purpose" of the deck to refill her gas.

  • About Dromoka's Command's versatility, in our kitchen-table-meta I think Collective Effort is just better. Slightly versatile as well and most likely buffs all the human army.

Here are some decks we play with each other:

Either we're playing 1v1 with any combination of the decks, or a 4-player ffa / two-headed giant with some friends that play Legacy, so format has become something kinda irrelevant. We're aware some decks has become kinda weak after we've created more and more decks, but we're trying to update them as well.

I'd play Banisher Priest inoted of Silkwrap because of the human synergy. Tireless Tracker would give some needed card draw in this deck. Dromoka's Command would work because it is so versatile. It can protect, fight buff and make your opponent sac an enchantment. I woils also consider Collected Company.

Here's my version of this deck along w/ a sidea board. Thalia's Horde of Humans

I don't think Silence fits the deck, it's a card that either wants to be built around with for example Isochron Scepter and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (those three cards creates a hard lock) or be a 1 of in a pure control deck.

Path of bravery looks more interesting, but it's a card that wants a wide board so it would go well with cards like Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls

It's easier to give advice if we know your budget also, there are a lot of cards in modern that would upgrade this deck but would cost a bit. For example Fatal Push and Path to Exile are the best removal spells in modern and could replace Murder, Ruinous Path and Silkwrap, but they are much more xpensive. Your mana base would be much improved by fetchlands and shocklands and so on.

Journey to Nowhere is a strictly better modern card than Silkwrap

I'm also sceptical to the Restoration Angel being worth in a deck with only 2 ETB creatures, you should probably either add more ETB creatures or remove them.

Enlightened Tutor could be replaced with Idyllic Tutor

I wouldn't worry about upvoting your own deck, if it wasn't allowed it shouldn't be possible to do (I though it wasn't possible but IDK).

Possibly a Chief of the Scale, what is your budget? Tormod's Crypt or Leyline of the Void, Leyline of Sanctity, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Most of those cards are expensive, and I understand if your budget doesn't allow. I run a similar deck that I haven't bought anything for and it runs lot's of exile like Silkwrap and Caught in the Brights. It also runs a few angel's and a Vizkopa Guildmage. I like the deck!

Are you not familiar with limited? Sometimes it's good for the draft environment for players to have access to a larger pool of a single card. For example, the Khans block had lots of powerful bomb enchantments like the siege cycle, Mastery of the Unseen, etc. In addition, tons of removal in the format came in the form of enchantments (Encase in Ice, Pacifism, Silkwrap, etc. In addition, we've got powerful stuff like Skywise Teachings at uncommon. There's also a ton of artifact mana fixing available in the format.

It absolutely makes sense for Naturalize to make two appearances across the block. In this way, someone in green doesn't have to stress about picking it up early because it's basically more of a sideboard card anyway, but you know you're going to come across one or two in your pool at later stages of the packs almost guaranteed.

Repeat cards with different arts are also a great way to showcase change on the plane.

Mysterious End

1W

Enchantment

When Mysterious End enters the battlefield, exile target creature with converted mana cost 3 or less an oponent controls.

When Mysterious End leaves the battlefield, target oponent creates a 3/3 green Dinosaur creature token with trample.


And this, ive been thinking about this since it was spoiled, its like Silkwrap and that saw play, but im not sure if we'd run this since we're going for more midrange strategy but it helps in the earlier stages while we're setting up so.....? Hm.....
