Sword of the Meek Discussion

I think that Ancestral Blade is pretty weak. It's nice that it makes you a token and is a cheap equipment, but there are many other efficient equipment cards that very clearly outshine it, such as Stoneforge Masterwork .

Instead of Scrabbling Claws , I'd play Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus .

Thopter Foundry has a pretty busted combo with Sword of the Meek and Krark-Clan Ironworks if you're looking for a combo finsher.

Finally, take a look into the "egg" style cards such as Darkwater Egg and Ichor Wellspring . They're great at triggering your commander's ability and generally are very cheap to cast + draw you a card.

Alassion thank you for your suggestions! Unfortunately some of those don't feel like a good incluse in this version of the deck since I am running mainly enchantments and not artifacts. Mirrodin Besieged and Sai, Master Thopterist would require me to run more artifacts than what I am doing now, Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek would work I give you that but they are artifacts and therefore go against my enchantment theme. Ashnod's Altar and Thopter Spy Network are cards that I could prob include in the deck, I have to think on it. Thopther Spy Network is kinda like more CMC expensive version of Blitterblossom but with the possible inclusion of card draw.

Gotcha. Thanks for the response

I have him in my list where he's been sweet with the Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry package. Its less optimized than yours for sure, but my meta is a little less cEDH than I gather yours is. If you're up for it then I'd love some feedback from a (perhaps) more seasoned Breya player than myself :-)

Sorry to hijack the thread, even for a moment. Spell Snare is quite good right now and I think most control decks ought to be running 1-2. Consider how many strategies at the moment center around 2-drops. Snare hits Stoneforge Mystic out of Stoneblade, Tarmogoyf and Wrenn and Six out of Jund (with W6 being the higher priority; I think it may be stealthily too good for Modern), both halves of the Thopter Foundry / Sword of the Meek combo out of Whirza (admittedly they tutor for the combo most of the time, but Spell Snare has also saved my butt a number of times in this case), and even some of the relevant Burn spells in the matchup (countering Eidolon of the Great Revel will save your life). If you control players aren’t running Spell Snare , why not? It’s great. Run it!!

Okay, semi-topical rant over. In regards to your brew, I would say that you could use some more play against Burn. In general, I would say don’t play counterspells and targeted discard in the same deck because it makes your gameplan awkward. Stick to either instant or sorcery speed control. There’s a guy named Corey Burkhart who’s a phenomenal Grixis player. I’d imagine he’s probably playing some form of Grixis Control, so I would look at how he sideboards and what his removal ratio is like.

I think that’s about all I got. Hope this helped in some way!

building around SFM is as simple as having white in the manabase and using 6-7 slots for the package. She can fit into urza thopter combo, not only as a tutor for Sword of the Meek but Batterskull can be quite the edge against other fair decks. she can fit into u/w control as a deck that's vastly more proactive than u/w control currently is. Death and taxes can also work stronger, might even become a deck that can see play again. Affinity can use SFM to tutor Cranial Plating . Colossus Hammer meme can also do work.

After playing this a couple times this weekend decided to run time sieve to combo with Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry . Also running more control with Gitaxian Probe and Arcane Denial .

Hello all! I'm posting because I'm about to list a few cards for sale and figured I'd bring them here first (though I'd possibly consider a trade as well). For pricing, I've generally taken the lowest price from TCG that matches card quality and knocked 10-15% off. The list is basically "I'm going to sell my Mox Opals and I noticed a few other cards laying on my desk I don't use." I may update the list early next week if I find the motivation to search for a few more things.

Anyway, shipping is included in all sales - I'd ship in an envelope for sales under $40, and track anything $40+

Let me know if you're interested in anything!

3-1 Tuesday Modern (1-2 in reality)

Lost 0-2 Urza Thopter First time playing against this archetype, i didn't play optimally. But wound up getting my opponent down to 1 life before they runner runner into Thopter Foundry then Sword of the Meek in two turns.


Lost 1-2 Bridgevine My opponent needed to drop so he gave me the match win, but it simply plays out, Graveyard hate against them i win, no hate i lose.

Won 2-0 Grixis Shaman I was able to eat through their card advantage with the combo, game 2 it really is shown to me that this deck plays well through Leyline of the Void as we both played it against each other. It just slows us down it doesn't hose the strategy like these other strategies.
