Storage Matrix Discussion

lagotripha on Upvote if you love Thrun! (Budget thrunation)

Its difficult to make budget reccomendations in a general sense, because its difficult to know how likely your meta is to show their weaknesses. If you're seeing a lot of fetches and toolbox strategies, arbiter is the correct choice, but there are a huge array of possibilities which while situational, might be more appropriate.

Grand Abolisher does a lot as a single step down to help resolve worship. Most of the creatures for consideration are already in hatebears lists. Personally, I'd much prefer to try and resolve a Pithing Needle or Phyrexian Revoker for the number of sacrifice effects tied to plainswalkers and general combo peices in my meta, and when operating on a budget colourless cards that can be swapped between decks on a sideboard really do help . I'd consider a single Spirit of the Labyrinth- it is very vulnerable to removal, but has a lot of utility blocking combo until they can fetch an answer. Cards like Storage Matrix/Witchbane Orb are similarly disruptive if looking for budget options, but cmc is super important when looking for tools. The manadorks will help, but it is a consideration. Dawn Charm has utility. Heliod's Pilgrim can search out pariah for combo-wombo, but otherwise isn't very useful. Bower Passage has blowout potential against decks reliant on lingering souls to stabilize, or Gravity Well to handle a lack of flying coverage. Some people swear by Skinshifter. Scryb Ranger is a dumb trick that can win games.

There are a lot of cards out there- there is going to be something to fit exactly what you need. Thalia is popular because she is such a great generalist. If you're casting spells, nope, wait another turn. But for budget, look at what you regularly face and find something that people sideboard to do that delay, even if it the lowly fog effect of Dawn Charm.

Inspired by STAX and mono-brown decks of legacy. This has been my go-to for modern nights at my LGS. Great fun to play... although its win record is just average. Probably because my local meta doesn't favor a lot of creatures. Magus of the Tabernacle, Ghostly Prison, & Storage Matrix are very tough for many creature-heavy decks to deal with.

Worst matchups = anything that doesn't play many creatures. So, the sideboard is geared towards dealing with Burn, MUC/Jeskai, & MBC/8-Rack. Playing against Tron is also difficult, because Tron doesn't care much about being taxed. Either it surgically-extracts an Urza land, or it loses.

Suggestions are welcome. I've considered adding Chalice of the Void, which would require me to retire Culling Scales... and that wouldn't exactly help out Metalwork Colossus to come out.

I've also considered swapping out the current creatures for a Kuldotha Forgemaster + Blightsteel Colossus setup.

Sun Titan can bring back lands or anything.. even Solitary Confinement. Storage Matrix for more stays tapped effects and Inspiring Statuary can shut some of those kinds of artifacts off for you, although you need more instant cards to really take advantage of it. Geth's Grimoire could be a great draw engine. Cool deck.

ibstudent2200: Daretti is something I had considered because of the card draw potential. I suppose I could take out Scrap Mastery for it since it's been lackluster lately. Idk why I overlooked it.

Storage Matrix has weird interactions with the orbs and it's not nearly as powerful of a lock.

Metalworker is already out but I'm not 100% sure why that wasn't updated, so staff wouldn't be a good fit here.

With all the lock pieces I haven't needed any more board wipes, and I don't want akiri dying from something like Blasphemous Act.

I had considered decree before but it's hard to find room. And honestly between Defense Grid and Conqueror's Flail and all the lock pieces I haven't worried about trying to fit it in, but I'll keep it in the back of my mind.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Daretti, Scrap Savant and Trash for Treasure seem good in this list.

Blinkmoth Well turns off Static Orb and Winter Orb during an opponent's end step, letting you untap normally.

What are your thoughts on Storage Matrix?

If you're running MLD, then Decree of Annihilation is worth considering. It's a bit more expensive than other MLD spells, but it's much harder to counter the cycling trigger.

If you're looking for more sweepers, Blasphemous Act is hard to beat for efficiency in most multiplayer games.

Staff of Domination isn't particularly mana-efficient, but it's extremely versatile, and combines with cards like Clock of Omens, Goblin Welder, and Metalworker to produce some interesting effects.

Everflowing Chalice is a mana rock I like in artifact-heavy decks, because it can come down on turn 2 to accelerate out a 4-cost commander, or it can come down on turn 6+ to act as a more expensive Thran Dynamo.

Hello again!

I tried playtesting this deck and it felt...weird. It didn't output much offensive pressure, and it seemed to have too few proper stax cards to survive as a control deck.

(Obviously you just built it so it needs some tuning, of course.)

RW's best strength in control is land destruction. Thus, Armageddon, Cataclysm, Ruination, Razia's Purification etc could help you secure your victory once you drop a win-con.

Stax cards I would include: Static Orb, Winter Orb, Storage Matrix, Tangle Wire, Ghirapur AEther Grid, etc. And don't forget Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast: the best anti-control counterspells!

Smoke and Meekstone are good ways to lock down creature-based board states.

Have you taken a look at some of the Gisela stax/control decks on this site? They might help you find some more cards.

Leonin Shikari seems strange here. Might be a cuttable card.

What's your meta like? It's easier to tailor a hate package once you know your opponents' decks :)

Happy deckbuilding!
