Stony Silence Discussion

Lame_Duck on The role of vehicles

Trying to build around them seems like a risky proposition; in a lot of ways they function like Equipment and, if you put too many in your deck, you'll end up with hands with multiple Vehicles and not enough regular creatures to make use of them. Also, they get completely shut down by Stony Silence, which is always something you need to be aware of in Modern.

RingoDingo92 yeah, well although I too really like archive I havnt gotten much use from it. at 5 mana and not doing anything without a follow up I picked it as the easiest slot to move around for some other playtesting. I feel I'm soon going to need a proactive play vs things like Stony Silence such as Jester's Cap or Grinning Totem as it seems to be becoming a popular choice amongst my friends lol. Maybe if I land Mycosynth Lattice a few times with it in play they well board it out xD.

Well neither Repeating Barrage or Revel in Riches are going to make a ripple in the ocean of modern.

Affinity, Jund/Junk are always top decks with their own pros and cons. Eldrazi has unfortunately cemented it's place in magic as well. U/W Control has always been a fan favorite so it's no wonder we so much of it lately.

Personal opinion, I think Affinity is the strongest deck in modern. Even against 1 drop removal, (bolt, path, push) 1 sided board whipes (Shatterstorm, Creeping Corrosion) and crippling hate cards (Stony Silence) it can still secure wins. At its best it wins at turn 3 and at its worst it Inkmoth Nexus is a very real threat.

Sorry, swamped with work. The problem is that you cannot sac Spine of Ish Sah... :( Sad panda.

Here's what I would do in the case of Teeg: Run two of Anger of the Gods effects, which works well against those decks usually. Stony Silence on the other hand is the bane of our existence. The only way I ever can get rid of it is Spine, Warp, or Unstable Obelisk, I had to add into my deck for a while, because it is reccurable.

Popalofiti on Mardu? No U!

I would recommend Relic of Progenitus or Rakdos Charm to deal with graveyard shenanigans, Leyline of Sanctity for burn, storm or the off chance you face a milling deck, and Stony Silence for Tron or Affinity. Also, maybe Rule of Law for storm as well? not sure if your deck could operate or not, but it for sure kills storm. I would also try running some Ghost Quarters main board. It helps to blow up utility lands.

And if you consider thebosslin's idea, I'd use Crypt Incursion or Sanguine Sacrament. They are both instant speed, Crypt Incursion cleans creatures out of a yard, and Sanguine Sacrament goes back in the library, so you could get away with a single copy. Creatures you could run would of course be the Soul Sisters Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, or the better of the two for an aggro strat, Suture Priest.

Hope I could help!

This looks like a really fun deck to play, very passive aggressive. lol turbo fog with a purpose as I like to put it. +1 from me!

A few things I would suggest for your SB, and I don't know your meta so I will leave these suggestions up to you.

Against Stony Silence: this card is your worst nightmare and I know you have a few counters to help deal, but I would suggest something like Erase. Its cheap and keeps them from digging it out of the graveyard.

Against Burn Decks: Leyline of Sanctity will shut that deck down really quickly, mull until you get it in your opening hand. I have a few wildfire/stuffy doll decks in my meta and its hard to deal with someone who slaps themselves to win and fogs don't help. lol

Sikter to be honest, I've played around 10 games in mtgo and lots of games against my own decks, so I can't really give any statistics about anything. I've had all my time go to my newborn so mtg has been cast aside for a while.

As for making it more competitive, bring in 4x Marsh Flats and 2-4 Windswept Heath (or other white fetch) and add Fatal Pushes. Don't up the Bunrei amount. Replace Day of Judgment with Wrath of God, Extirpate with Surgical Extraction. Also include things like Stony Silence, Runed Halo, Rest in Peace and Leyline of Sanctity in the sideboard (and further fine tune it).

I'm glad you like it and honestly this is a good base for building BW tokens, no matter which way you start to evolve it. Like straying from the wincons I got now, with cards like Bitterblossom and Dark Confidant together with Vault of the Archangel and Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

Angry_Fister on [[Primer]] - Daretti the Degenerate (On Hiatus)

I run Walking Ballista for quick finishers, which doubles up as creature removal. This decklist is sort of weak when it comes to creature removal, since you only have Spine and Chaos Warp. So even a good old Bolt could do the trick, sometimes removing one creature can make the game. (I recommend Lightning Bolt to anyone making a budget version of Daretti)

In the case of Stony Silence or other cards such as Grafdigger's Cage, Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void etc. I'm not too sure. This deck lacks in almost every type of removal as it relies on stax and combos. Perhaps if you were running a slower, budget version of this deck you could add basic removal like Crush/Smelt for artifacts. As for enchantments? There is no red enchantment removal other than ones that target blue cards. Spine, Disk, and Chaos Warp are really your only answers for enchantments.

Hope I can help! I've been lurking this thread for a while and it has made my Daretti deck 10x better. Love this deck hope to see it stay on top with the upcoming sets.
