Kezvin on Abzan Midrange? L

14 hours ago

I'm assuming the 1-ofs of like 100,000 different things are an attempt to insert more ways to deal with more things, so that you can have 62 cards that can deal with everything. Don't do that. Your draws, with this many 1- and 2-ofs and more than 60 cards, has incredibly inconsistent draws. If you want to make an Abzan midrange list, make it a midrange list, not a do-everything toolbox list. Establish a strong base of about 5 different creatures and run no less than 2 of each. If I were you, I'd make it Noble Hierarch, Siege Rhino, Voice of Resurgence, Loxodon Smiter, and either Anafenza, the Foremost or Kitchen Finks. Cut Undying Evil and Cloudshift. Those don't contribute anything towards what a true midrange list wants to do. Shrink your removal suite down to some combination of Abrupt Decay, Fatal Push, and Path to Exile, and choose between Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize for disruption. Don't try to run them both in small numbers. Your best planeswalker options are Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Liliana of the Veil, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Garruk Relentless  Flip. If I were you, I'd pick ONE AND ONLY ONE of them to run as a 3-of AT THE MOST. Get rid of Isolated Chapel, Woodland Cemetery, and Sunpetal Grove. Keep it at Shocks, Fetches, two to three basics, and MAYBE ONE COPY of Gavony Township. If you want, You could probably run ONE COPY of ONE of the manlands, but not all three. They always enter tapped, which is a huge disadvantage in this format.

Believe me, my first attempt at a modern deck was a bit like this. But it was inconsistent and it had too much going on. Look at some established Abzan Midrange lists for inspiration and guidance. Read the primers. Learn from the winning lists. And don't EVER underestimate the value of a) running a full 4 of a card and b) keeping your deck at 60 cards.

Mcoronato, yeah, despite dark ritual being a god awful card to look at, I find that it is a really good black ramp that deserves a set of 4 in most black decks that are looking to get control early. It's practically a black lotus for black. Of course, it costs one so its three mana turn one, not 4 like the lotus. As far as how to fit it in, you could look to add some more token generation, then you wouldn't need as many creatures. Spells like Sengir Autocrat, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Skirsdag High Priest, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Lingering Souls, Secure the Wastes, and Sram's Expertise are some good ways of creating tokens to sacrafice.

Can't remember if Path to Exile and Fatal Push are legal in legacy but they are very good counterspells that I try to fit in with most black and/or white modern decks.

Also, here are some other cards I can think of that you might be interested in: Hell's Caretaker, Genju of the Fens, Vampiric Rites, Bitterblossom, Leyline of the Void, Vault of the Archangel.

Finally, what's going on with your sideboard? Seems a little out of place lol :)

So this deck looks really cool. It's a really spicy list. However, what does Ensnaring Bridge really do for you that extra removal couldn't do in its place? I think this list could go down the bridges for either extra copies of Abrupt Decay or Terminate, or even bring in something like Maelstrom Pulse.

I also really like the idea of retrace with Burning Vengeance. Someone suggested Lingering Souls, however I think this would be a better home for a 1 of Worm Harvest. It works great with what you want to do, and gives you blockers (which I'm sure is what the bridge is for). Or even Young Pyromancer?

Also have you thought of any walkers for the deck? I know Lilli of the Veil is to expensive, so she's not even on the radar, but what about like Xenagos, the Reveler or Sorin, Solemn Visitor? (I know lord of inistrad is better, but again prices.) These are just some minor things that may help.

Lastly what is your meta like at your lgs? If interested the community may be able to help you build a sb suitable to your situation (if needed).

In a deck with Lingering Souls and Pack Rat I would prefer to play Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Also, Squadron Hawk is a nice source of card advantage to fuel more Rats and maybe Collective Brutality as well. Asylum Visitor could work too, since it has Madness, you can pitch it to either Pack Rat or Collective Brutality and still be able to cast it.

I still haven't received your end from our last trade, but im sure it's just taking awhile. How would you like to do 1 Spell Snare and 1 Drogskol Captain for 2 Past in Flames and 1 Sorin, Solemn Visitor?

Ahh, I see. It certainly got me thinking your MO was to steal creatures. Well played~ One more thing I noticed is you dont have any draw spells. Do you ever run out of gas? And have you ever thought about sticking in Sorin, Solemn Visitor? Seems fun.
