je712 on Selvala, Enchantress Returned

1 day ago

Changes April 2017


  • Serra's Sanctum and Crop Rotation allow for much more explosive play. The Deck plays 45 Enchantments, most of the at 1 to 3 cmc. Serra's Sanctum can often tap for 10 or more mana. Ideally more then once per turn.

  • Magus of the Candelabra untaps Serra's Sanctum, Nykthos and enchanted lands. This little guy can ramp like crazy. Additionally converts the green mana from Selvala to white from untapped lands.

  • Congregation at Dawn can go grab enchantresses and enchantment creatures. With Selvala and enchantresses the three cards can often be drawn in the same turn. Helps set up the enchantress engine.

  • Green Sun's Zenith puts an enchantress or the magus directly on the battlefield. Better than wordly tutor in this deck.

  • Luminarch Ascension is strictly better then Hoofprint of the Stag.

  • Quarantine Field is a great card to ramp into. Playing this to exile all your opponents nonland permanents is very satisfying.

  • Island Sanctuary, Ground Seal, Stony Silence, Urban Burgeoning, Soul Snare

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!

Some thoughts -

  1. The 2x Dismember in the sideboard should probably be Anguished Unmaking.

  2. Replace Tidehollow Sculler with Timely Reinforcements, you should have enough removal.

  3. Replace 1x Fatal Push with Hero of Bladehold to give a bit more consistency.

  4. Stony Silence in preference to Kataki, War's Wage.

I'm sure you know this, but you do want Godless Shrine over Caves of Koilos. Otherwise the modern event deck was actually fairly decent, though a 4th Inquisition of Kozilek wouldn't go wrong...

More side hate. Things like Stony Silence and Naturalize You may also want to throw in Abrupt Decay just because you can. And of course if you can afford goyf run goyf because you will do well against goyf mirror matches.(This all only matters if youre playing modern competitive. Spending a load of money is not necessary in casual)

You're going to be going up against a lot of artifacts, that I know for sure. Rest in Peace will probably also come up at some point, so you'll want something to contend with that. Disenchant and Extirpate/Surgical Extraction will get rid of any of those threats. People are fond of using Stony Silence to stop artifacts. Those three/four cards would make a nice start to your sideboard. The rest is basically up to whatever you'll find that you're going up against on a regular basis.

I've got plenty more of ideas if ya want more, this kind of magic is my sort of thing :P Just don't forget to add draw into this deck. Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study and so on will keep you pissing people off with card advantage.

Hey man, I also noticed you don't run any artifacts. This would open your deck up to utilizing Null Rod/Stony Silence, which can completely hose some opposing decks out there. Also, Primeval Bounty could fit in here really nicely too.

Your list is interesting. I myself opted against the loam plan, but it's definitely an interesting route. I'm on a 41 lands "Jeskai" list myself, adding white for Leyline of Sanctity, Stony Silence, Wear and dropping the silver bullets in the mainboard for cards like Mystic Speculation and Serum Visions. My list if you're interested.

as far as this list goes, is a 3/3 split the way to go on your assault effects? I just can't imagine not wanting 4 Seismic Assault in here. +1 from me though!
