DonaldFuck on Tap-Down Control

1 day ago

I was thinking about a deck like that using verity circle as a draw engine, along with Time of Ice . Now I thought, why not adding Goblin Rabblemaster and the likes to attack while their creatures are tapped? We could also play a little prison style adding Chalice of the Void . We want our deck to be good generally, because most decks don't run creatures. Yes we can create for them but we need counterspells. Specifically tempo counterspells. So Remand and Condescend must be a playset to the deck. I also thought about Simian Spirit Guide to have turn one chalice but that is an other story. As for tappers expect time of ice I would run about 2 Sleep but no more. You can add 2 more in the SB. If everything goes wrong add 1 panic button in the form of Banefire

Is there room for Simian Spirit Guide to help you get the combo going faster?

Saljen on Eldritch Moon

If you're dedicating 4 slots to Simian Spirit Guide , you should run 4x Chalice of the Void and 4x Blood Moon so you can hit those turn 1 Chalice for 1 and turn 2 Blood Moon plays as consistently as possible.

Dropping Abrade from the main board would let you Chalice for 2 as well without hurting yourself. That shuts down even more of the meta.

heckproof: you want a ban on stirrings and looting, but an unban on Seething Song ? your priorities seem backwards. i hope you realize Seething Song would see play in more than just storm. you want turn 2 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn ? unbanning Seething Song is how you get that. Simian Spirit Guide into Seething Song into Through the Breach .

achilles777 on Narset's inevitable Approach

Last_Laugh as always, I appreciate your input. I see what you mean as far as sitting on the fence between super fast turn 2-3 and long game. So, here is my compromise, what if I just lean into the super fast part by adding additional ramp such as Simian Spirit Guide , Pyretic Ritual , Rite of Flame and Crystal Vein and remove some of the extra interaction? Ill make room form Copy Artifact and Brainstorm . I am considering Personal Tutor and also Merchant Scroll , would I be better off picking one or the other or would both be fine? I do currently have Scroll Rack in the deck. Those evasive enchantments are good and I can see how they would help, I did have Aqueous Form in the deck previously, I will consider those and see.

superlolisentai on Turn 2 Naya

3 weeks ago

Have you thought of going Naya? Maybe go +1 Stomping Ground and like 3-4 Magnetic Theft ? Simian Spirit Guide plays nice with Magnetic Theft . I think that will lead to more turn 2 kills because without Sigarda's Aid like effect, the deck stumbles a lot. Red can also give you access to Swiftblade Vindicator to play around with.

StopShot on Turn 1 Lotus Field?

3 weeks ago

I might be reading this wrong, but if I understand it correctly, if I start the game with a Gemstone Caverns turn 0, or exile a Simian Spirit Guide for , or crack a Lotus Petal for one mana to cast Amulet of Vigor , and then play Lotus Field as my land for turn, would I be able to tap the Lotus Field for mana before I sacrifice it to it's ETB? If so that's a janky turn 1 Black Lotus in Modern/Legacy.
