Stasis Snare Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks loads for your responses. Ive made most changes you guys have suggested and your feedback is making starting a modern deck way less scary. Im going to play test the new list with the long sideboard and see where that takes me.
-sideboard is all a mess thanks to LandofMordor, im planning on throwing lots in there and culling down in play testing.
-lands have been swapped out for more untapped entry thanks to Unlife.
A few things:
-Im going to keep Geier Reach Sanitarium and give it a chance before turfing it.
-Id love to find space for an Authority of the Consuls or two
-Im hesitant of adding more creatures into the deck but i think Linvala, Keeper of Silence is great inclusion into the sideboard.
Thanks for your help so far, im really looking forward to playing this deck!

Cards I'm not too sure is a great idea:
Galvanic Bombardment. Get Lightning Bolts instead. You are not getting anything extra out of galvanic until you play the third of them, and you can't point it at your opponents face anyway (which is one of the nice features of lightning bolt).
Descend upon the Sinful. I get the idea - remove all of it, permanently. But the cost is forbidding, especially against the decks where you want "exile" rather than "destroy" (dredge, I guess, and maybe a couple of others but not to the same extent).
Overall, it's an open question how often you get to use your madness/discard cards for their intended purpose - in which case they are good - or just have to hardcast them (and then they are bad). If fast decks with plenty of creatures are a problem (and I guess they are), you could move Kozilek's Return to mainboard.

Atroxreaper, answers to Ulamog in GW cats (don't see your deck posted here) include: Stasis Snare, Gideon's Intervention and the granddaddy of cats Felidar Sovereign. Heroic Intervention will stop these things dying.
(Next person, comment on the above Grixis list. I don't know much about that.)

Hi, ShaharRyu. My idea behind removing Ballyrush Banneret is that you won't get discounts for 1 drops (witch you have 8 of) and Precinct Captains. I've recommended replacing it with more of those un-discountable spells since they are better threats but if you are really keen on sticking with them, it's still a good option. Also you may just tweak the ratio of Fairgrounds Wardens and Stasis Snares as you'd like (eg. 1 Fairgrounds Warden 2 Stasis Snare) or try a new card from Amonkhet called Cast Out, since it merges flashy responivity of Stasis Snare and removal versitility of Banishing Light for only 1 extra mana. Plus with it's cycling you can try and draw into more usefull card at a time. Well, Cloudshift. It's ok, I just prefer to have more removal or creatures then a protection/value spell, especially if you have Brave the Elements for the protection, and only 5 creatures for the value.

Hey PlaneswalkerCasper. Thanks for your feedback on my deck. Regarding to your tips: Exchanging Doomed Traveler for Icatian Javelineers and Thraben Inspector is a very good idea. I was thinking about just 4 javelinerrs but 2 and 2 sounds just perfect. Ideally, Ballyrush Banneret should be in my opening hand. Turn 2 drop and if am lucky turn 3 as well, makes all of my 3 drops a 1 drop, besides the fact they are magnets to removal which could potentially get something more important from the board. I count them each as 1/2 a land so that am running as many creatures as possible and I could consider removing 1 for a Precinct Captain but more would affect my mana balance since Preeminent Captain can't cheat until turn 4. Fairgrounds Warden is very likely to receive removal and Stasis Snare might be a better option, although lower mana cost from the banneret or the ability to change targets by casting Cloudshift is very nice. Sunlance is a wonderful suggestion which I will happily include in the deck and although Honor of the Pure is amazing, right now am low on budget and a set is very expisve for me (yes, $8 is a pain when your local currency is 3 times less), but I consider running 1 Spear of Heliod as an alternative which also grants removal. Upping on Tormod's Crypt sounds nice and Hour of Reckoning sounds a lot of fun to play.
Once again thanks for your suggestions and I will keep this low-budget version updating for a while. Any more ideas or explanations as to why you would strongly reccomend your suggestions are welcomed. And just for the record, Cloudshift is much better than people consider. Give it a try for protection of removal, recasting Captain of the Watch or changing Fairgrounds Warden target.

HiShaharRyu, your deck seem quite good for a budget build, although some things can be improved. Doomed Traveler is good if you have a removal-heavy meta at your LGS, but if not, I recommend swapping them for 2 Thraben Inspector and 2 Icatian Javelineers. Ballyrush Banneret is a great card, I can certainly see a couple of reasons to run it, but I think it might be better to swap them for 2 additional Precinct Captains and 2 Honor of the Pure since you're cheating creatures into play with Preeminent Captain. Your romoval package is also vulnerable to opposing removal since Fairgrounds Warden is a creature. Personally, if you don't want to buy the expensive 4 Path to Exile, try with a combination of Stasis Snare, Oblivion Ring (I know that it's in the sideboard) and Banishing Light. You might also try Sunlance as a sideboard removal instead of Oblivion Ring (if you move it to main). Brave the Elements is ok, Cloudshift not so much. I would replace all Cloudshifts and 2 Brave the Elements by following: 1 Raise the Alarm 1 Honor of the Pure and 2 Aerial Responders, witch go nicely with your Odric, Master Tactician. For sideboard, it's a well built budget version of a full blown modern hateboard. I could see the replacement of Tormod's Crypt for Relic of Progenitus. In fact, you're kind of light on greveyard hate, so I recommend running more of it (for eg. 3-4 Relic of Progenitus, cut what you think is right, although Condemn is the weakest card of them all). Plus, a 1 mass removal card such as Hour of Reckoning, witch is a great budget option.

Pretty good idea. I initially wanted to fit some Stasis Snare in there as well but I actually like Desert's Hold better in a deck full of deserts. I'm not sure what I'd remove to add them though. Maybe Renegade Map? even though that seems like a good way to ensure land drop and produce mana through inspire. What do you think?

Sorry but Gideon can't be removed???
Oketra's Last Mercy Is useless, Burn is not deck in Standard if you didn't know.
Then the real question which you should always ask yourself when building competitive deck: Why would you play this over meta versions, in this case U/R or U/W control?
