There's an infinite combo here... Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder for infinite life and infinite +1/+1 counters on all your creatures.

Why Selfless Squire and not Spike Feeder ? I get that Selfless Squire is typically a retaliation kill but Spike Feeder is reusable (I run both personally.)

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. I'm a little more all-in on the +1+1 counters personally and have the avg. cmc coming in at a slim 2.83. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

Spike Feeder also combos well with Archangel of Thune, I'd recommend the Archangel, but it is a little expensive ;-;

+1 because I love this deck!

Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder = infinite +1/+1 counter

hmm so the mainboard of this deck has blue purely to make Spike Feeder's mana costing ability to cost one cheaper or for quartermasters ability to cost just G? that seems to be quite weak admittedly, any consideration of trading blue for white and receive access to the best sideboard cards in modern along with the best creature removal in Path to Exile, not to mention getting the most powerful combo a spike has possessed in Archangel of Thune with the feeder for impossible to burn down lifegain and massive creatures. what better way to celebrate spikes by using it's spikiest spike combo?

Hey man! Nice deck. I have a few suggestions.

My first one is try not to have as many 1-ofs as you have now. For a deck to be competive in Modern, you have to have as many 4-ofs and 3-ofs as possible, maximising the chances of you seeing it every game.

My second is to do one of two things:

  • Get more ramp to get out your big CMC spells such as Arbor Elf, Utopia Sprawl and Noble Hierarch. I’d also recomend taking out your current ramp as it is quite redundant

  • Or try to reduce your mana curve (ie. having a lower number of high CMC cards lowers your curve)

This is so your deck can be fast enough to compete at a Modern level. Personally, I would go for the latter option as it would make the deck more consistent.

Try to have more consistent token producers. Right now, you have 13 token producers, 7 of which are consistent, 7 of which also help with a token deck’s main strategy (to make a lot of tokens and pump them up). I know it’s hard, but try to find cards that either do both or do one very well (Leyline of the Meek, Venerated Loxodon and Saproling Migration come to mind).

My last piece of advice is to take out cards that aren’t Utility (ie. Removal) or cards that don’t help with your main strategy. Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Spike Feeder come to mind here.

Finally, I have the current Modern deck that I’m running you might want to check out:

Good Luck and I hope this helps,

Hey NV_1980,

Made most of the drops you recommended. Dropped Palace Siege, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Diabolic Revelation. However I am keeping Tooth and Nail as this is actually a sly combo wincon. Even though it's not mentioned in the details as yet, but will be soon enough. With that one card your potential to win the game increases dramatically (obviously as long as you don't get countered).

I use Tooth and Nail to search up the combo pieces Archangel of Thune & Spike Feeder. It's usually used as a last resort when the game isn't going our way or if we just want to end the game.

We know these 2 cards combine to give us infinite life, but once you add Mirrorpool in the mix to copy the affect of Tooth and Nail. You then get to grab x2 more pieces Crystalline Crawler for infinite mana & Fathom Mage to allow you to draw the entire deck to find the final finishers (now that we can manually increase our life to go infinite) Aetherflux Reservoir or if that's gone Sanguine Bond or if that's gone Vizkopa Guildmage or if that's gone Debt to the Deathless (now that we have Infinite mana from Crystalline Crawler). You get the idea. ;)

Thanks for the great suggestions! I'll also be making some time to check out your builds...you have quite the catalog! :D
