Strangelove on Captain! To the Wheel!

1 day ago

New category: Combo. Includes Chasm Skulker, Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Walking Ballista, The Locust God, Voltaic Key, Pili-Pala, Psychosis Crawler, Paradox Engine, etc

New category: Recursion. Includes Myr Retriever

New category: Haste/Evasion. Includes Lightning Greaves, Retract, Shimmer Myr, Spellskite, Vedalken Orrery, etc

Day's Undoing is Draw.

Goblin Welder is Recursion and Removal.

Pithing Needle is Removal.

Grand Architect is Combo and Ramp.

Mycosynth Lattice is Combo, though I'm not sure what it does in this deck.

Vandalblast is Wipe (or Removal).

If Phyrexian Metamorph and Sculpting Steel are useful, but you have to decide between flex and combo pieces. If they are combo pieces, put them into and then cut from Combo.

I have a promo foil Paradoxical Outcome you should take.

You can cut some Ramp, like Thran Dynamo. You need more than 31 lands.

You can cut some Draw, like Dig Through Time. I would just run the wheels, tutors, and sticks.

You can cut some Evasion.

@toffmcsoft me too! upvoted your deck and will try to comment asap

@delusiions totally! In the same fashion; Shrieking Drake+Earthcraft gets around haste for infinite cast triggers. I'd love to see something like that with Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger for infinite mana

@Last_Laugh I've only been able to mtg a handful of times in the past few months, and mostly played newer // less competitive decks I guess. As you and @helldanno mentioned I need to lower the avg cmc with more mana ramp

I own Rattleclaw Mystic, Beastcaller Savant, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Sylvan Caryatid, and even Spellskite. Plus all of the 1-drop dorks scattered throughout other decks. I'd also be interested in trying to add Regal Behemoth.

I'll mull it all over! I appreciate the help everybody !!!

Thanks FullmetalWes :)

Spellskite would be excellent for protecting my creatures and I could definitely see it working in this deck. I do have trouble against decks with lots of removal. Greater Auramancy looks amazing. I might be able to swap out Elixir of Immortality for this. I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes.

I think Spellskite or Greater Auramancy could find a spot? Something to protect angelic accord seems important.

SeekerofSecrets on Help with budget midrange needed

5 days ago

So I'm taking the plunge and investing in my first modern deck, Im in college so i have a $400 budget. Ive decided to go with an esper midrange built around Glory-Bound Initiate and Painful Truths (I know this isn't an original idea but its a blast to play, has plenty of room to brew and most importantly its the only 3 color mana base in my price range)

This is my current list Glory to Esper

The core spell package and mana base feel pretty solid but im struggling to decide on what creatures to play. I wish i could afford snap then the decision would be simple.

I've played delve threats with Tombstalker and 4 Thought Scour

And I've played utility with Spellskite and Tidehollow Sculler

I haven't tested the current set up (I don't own the deck yet and mostly test on untap.in) i just want to hear the community's thoughts on it and the best set up to combat the current metta. Ill play moving to Atlanta in the fall so im not sure what metta will look like so I'll tune the sideboard as well when i get there.

As always thanks for any advice on the build!!!

Squirrel_of_War on Muldrotha Exhumes All

@Force_of_Willb - Ancestral Knowledge will shuffle the library when it leaves so you need to pay the upkeep for a turn or two at least. it's also a bit pricey.

Deadbridge Chant is one of my favorite cards and I had it in here when I first built the deck but it never stuck around for more than the turn I cast it. I might find a spot for it but at the moment I don't think there are any cards in here that are less useful.

Dreamborn Muse is great and I put in Forgotten Creation which is similar but I ended up taking it out because in my playgroup if the card doesn't do something the turn it is cast or has an ability that can be activated at instant speed then it is very likely it will get removed before you get any use from it. Also muse can potentially help my opponents or make them hate me and target me more than usual.

I really appreciate you input on what to remove since that is always the hardest thing to decide when I get great suggestions.

Nyx Weaver is a card that is on the fence. I have him in currently because he is basically a draw 2 additional cards each turn but the main reason is that I can count him as an enchantment or creature for Muldrotha's ability.

Body Snatcher is part of the Hulk chain so he has to stay.

Aid from the Cowl is something I just added in but have not yet got to try it out. It seems promising since it will trigger at the end of the turn I cast it so I'm excited to see it play out and it costs less than Deadbridge Chant and doesn't rely on my graveyard. In my playgroup my yard usually gets exiled a few times each game so Cowl can still be an advantage without my yard.

Overeager Apprentice is an all star in a few of my other decks and I recently added him in here to see if he works out. I might remove him after some testing.

Other cards that I'm not 100% sure on are Spellskite and Mishra's Bauble. I may remove one to add in Tezzeret the Seeker since he can tutor any of the artifacts in the deck the turn he is cast (with the exception of Mindslaver).

Thanks for the comment! Don't for get to +1 if you like the deck!

APPLE01DOJ on Hardened Constrictor

Like above, Golgari as counters is a really bad strategy. It plays a much stronger midrange game. Stuff like Tarmogoyf, Dark Confidant, and Liliana of the Veil.

Anyway some good SB options: Back to Nature, Creeping Corrosion, Maelstrom Pulse, Damnation, Leyline of the Void, Fulminator Mage, Choke, Spellskite, Golgari Charm, & Sword of Fire and Ice

FancyTuesday on Flashing Your Way To Victory

For starters, if you're playing blue and want cards you play Consecrated Sphinx. Your commander's only text could be "every time there's a sphinx destroy it" and you'd still run Consecrated Sphinx, it's that good.

Thirst for Knowledge and Compulsive Research are your best value straight draw spells in the vein of Divination and Brilliant Plan.

If you're running Leonin Abunas you can straight upgrade to Padeem, Consul of Innovation or run both if you really find the effect helpful. Spellskite has a similar function and can be flashed in.

Bident of Thassa and Thopter Spy Network are both worthy of consideration if you like Thieving Magpie.

This deck is pretty light on recursion. I find Memory Jar is an absolute monster, but I dunno if Junk Diver and Hanna are gonna cut it. Something to consider if you ever find yourself running more cards that could bring it or the cards it pitches back from the graveyard.
