Story Circle Discussion

Entrei, Suppression Field works directly against Story Circle, because Story Circle's ability is an activated ability that is not a mana ability. Stony Silence and Runed Halo are purely sideboard cards at best, and Aven Mindcensor is meant for hatebear type decks. theres a reason my Story Circle deck uses protection from colors. it simultaneously protects from removal spells and creatures, allowing me to block with impunity or attack unblocked. for example, why would i use Runed Halo to declare Death's Shadow when i could just play a Mirran Crusader and possibly block to kill it while remaining immune to the Abrupt Decay that would destroy the Runed Halo?

Hmm... you could go Story Circle, but instead of pro color creatures run Suppression Field, Stony Silence, Aven Mindcensor and Runed Halo

I agree with Pieguy396

But if you want to play Story Circle, (and don't care about people hating you), you could make a mono-white (maybe splash blue) Enchantment Prison deck, which can also be pretty competitive. But Story Circle is not that important in that type of deck, just a good tool to have.

my current modern deck is Sliver Company and i'm looking to build my next one so i don't have to use the same thing every week. listed below are some brews i came up with that nobody else at my LGS uses. so vote for the deck you think is the most "spicy", as the kids say these days, or whichever you think could be the most competitive.

Korlash: a mono-black devotion deck capable of ramping into a big Torment of Hailfire.

Fully Equipped: a deck aimed to make efficient use of an equipment toolbox.

Spirits say "no": UW spirit tribal control. make the opponent feel like they have to ask permission before they cast anything.

Story Circle: centered around Story Circle with creatures that have built in protections from various colors.

Pick your Poison: a deck where almost every card forces an opponent to choose the lesser of 2 evils. they can either take damage, or allow me to gain some sort of beneficial effect.

If you're looking to specifically hose burn you could definitely use all 4 Timely Reinforcements, Kor Firewalker, and Circle of Protection: Red. Also, Story Circle and Leyline of Sanctity are cards.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I have some comments for you:

The way your deck is currently built, it looks like a hybrid of two of the most common enchantment-based decks in Modern: Bogles and Enchantress. I would recommend picking one to focus on, and ignoring the other. Bogles plays small, hexproof creatures (such as the namesake Slippery Bogle), and then buffs them with four or five Auras, such as Ethereal Armor, Rancor, and Daybreak Coronet. Enchantress, on the other hand, is more of a prison deck, ramping quickly with Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl, then dropping Ghostly Prisons and Story Circles to prevent your opponents creatures from attacking, then drawing a bunch of cards with an Eidolon of Blossoms, and closing out the game with a Sigil of the Empty Throne.

You might have noticed that both of those decks have something in common: Green. Green offers a lot to an Enchantress deck, ranging from ramp Auras (Utopia Sprawl), buff Auras (Rancor), and card-drawing engines (Eidolon of Blossoms). There's even cards like Herald of the Pantheon and Courser of Kruphix if you want to get really deep. I would strongly recommend adding Green to your deck, even if you don't choose either of the above routes, as there are so many good options the color has to offer.

If you do want to go the Enchantress route, I have an Enchantress deck that I love playing: Modern is Enchanting.

In any case, good luck with your deck, and welcome to the site! If you ever want feedback on one of your decks, feel free to leave a comment on my profile!

Enchantress is not played super often in modern as it lacks many of the tools it has access to in legacy. That being said, it is not a terrible deck and can squeeze out free wins in some match ups. The common cards in these decks are Sigil of the Empty Throne, Greater Auramancy, Idyllic Tutor, Utopia Sprawl, Fertile Ground, Story Circle, Ghostly Prison, Starfield of Nyx, Leyline of Sanctity, Privileged Position, and Heliod, God of the Sun. Some lists run Mesa Enchantress and Verduran Enchantress. I feel like running a few is fine, but Eidolon of Blossoms definitely outclasses them as he is also an enchantment. There are also a few fun tricks you can do with Mirrorweave.

Overall, the most important thing is to narrow the deck down to 60 cards. This is especially true if you want the deck to be more consistent as you then up the statistical odds of not only drawing your best cards, but the cards you need when you need them. Cards I would consider cutting are Authority of the Consuls, Anointed Procession, Heroic Intervention, Amulet of Vigor, Eldrazi Monument, Godsend, Spear of Heliod, Aegis of the Gods, Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Endurance, Grand Abolisher, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Karametra, God of Harvests, and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. I would also maybe cut Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -- but he is pretty dang good in almost any deck.

Some of those have really high costs, which is not ideal in a fast format unless you're playing full-on control. Story Circle, Stonehorn Dignitary and Ghostly Prison are definitely worth looking into. Thanks!
