Spellskite Discussion

Stephencliffe on Nahiri Mardu

Cool idea moving out of Jeskai. I see a few changes that might be beneficial to the deck.

Firstly, you have no means of drawing additional cards. Normally Dark Confidant would be the perfect card, but your curve is way too high for him. Maybe try Phyrexian Arena to help you out with that. Other options include Ob Nixilis Reignited, Read the Bones and Painful Truths. These all come at the cost of paying life, so you'll want some way of gaining some of that back. But card draw is a must, so definitely find a way to generate some.

Secondly, you have tons and tons of removal. There are decks that aren't oriented around creatures; against those decks many of your cards will be dead in your hand. Even against creature decks, too much removal means that you're reacting to whatever your opponent is doing. This is never a great strategy.

You can try taking out a chunk of your removal spells to add in some creatures to pressure your opponent. This can also serve as an alternate win condition, should anything happen to Nahiri. Sin Collector, Desecration Demon and Restoration Angel are all very affordable creatures that have impactful effects on the game. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is also good, even in modern.

Now for the sideboard. You should definitely run Stony Silence and Rest in Peace. Basically every white deck has some amount of these two cards in the sideboard. They're amazing, run them. Past that, Spellskite is never a bad idea, nor is Fulminator Mage.

What you should really do is playtest this against as many decks as you can, and find out what your worst matchups are. Then you can make a sideboard plan from there.

Hope I was helpful. Cool deck, hope it all works well for you!

Well thats good. I would never tell you not to play it, especially if its something you like playing, I just don't know what your budget is going to look like. I really like the deck too. I'm not sure what list I really want to play, as there are lots of variations you can make. Many lists usually run Spellskite in some number, and eventually you'll want a Sidebaord.

First of all, if you Run white and red and Emrakul, add Nahiri, the Harbinger

Sooo what worked for me in terms of consistent midrange combo was using Academy Ruins to get a staff on top of library and maybe drawing it the same turn with wall of omens, which could be your manamorphose.but you need 1 blue for that and i know that is stretching the mana base, but it might be worth it.

that way you rely much more on the staff, but then you can take out banefires and ballistas, because the main goal is to win with emrakul and staff

if you dont want blue at all, maybe just try to protect your key creatures with Spellskiteand maybe try Renegade Rallier for recursion

other thoughts..Hanweir Battlements for haste on the devoted to fire off same turnKessig Wolf Run alternate win con

i personally also like Beast Within. especially for game 1, its such a versatile card. you can get tokens off dying stuff or fetch lands or just destroy a land on upkeep to gain a turn. the token shudnt worry you too much with bolt and beeing a fast combo deck. its a fun card

Oh and you cant play melira because it disables devoted druid ;-)

Is this mostly casual or competitive?

If competitive, you pretty much need to run at least 1 Assault Formation. Virtually every competitive deck will immediately remove your Doran, the Siege Tower from the field. Even when Spellskite wasn't a 4/4, it was OP. It also protects your Doran and massacres Infect, Burn, Bogles, and formerly Twin (may it rest in peace). Tower Defense is an amazing finisher as mentioned before. Your choice to max Birds of Paradise is great; they shore up your weakness to flying, and are the most powerful dork to begin with.

Most of my suggestions are the same as tournament finishes for Modern Doran, FYI.

TheRiddler I had never thought of CoCo but like it. I totally agree with Spellskite the only thing that has kept me from getting them is the $20.00 price tag.

I do agree tutoring for Doran with Treefolk Harbinger is asking for a bad time. It either finds lands or turns on Murmuring Bosk.

I'm surprised to not see Collected Company. In this type of deck it is straight value because hitting 8-10 power off Co-Co is just too good. There's something about Treefolk Harbinger that I just don't like. I played with him in the list and found it too revealing. Your opponent knows all your dudes are about to be able to hit for a ton and can prepare for it in the moment: they can play differently and make sure to have removal ready making you waste a turn or two. I've also found Spellskite to be an insanely good card with Doran. You get its ability on a 4/4 body, so worth it.

Regardless, love seeing another Doran deck floating around! Best of luck!!!
