Tamiyo, Field Researcher Discussion

Raphiezar on Ramos, The Cheap Engine

4 days ago

Death's Presence is good because you can dump counters onto Ramos or other creatures. Necropolis Regent gets out of hand fast, as does Kalonian Hydra. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is decent for buffing your army for only 3 mana. Chasm Skulker and Hangarback Walker are great ways to utilize those +1/+1 counters to make a big board state. In tandem with Vorel of the Hull Clade, you can run Gilder Bairn which can also double planeswalker loyalty if you need it. Casting Conflux while Ramos is in play tutors for a bunch of cards that you can then cast immediately, like Doubling Season for your green card and Tamiyo, Field Researcher for either your white or blue card.For cards to take out, Mayael the Anima is the first because have only 4 creatures that she can grab, which means she will miss a lot of her activations. Gleam of Battle and Forced Adaptation are very low impact cards. You run too many instant and sorcery cards for Primal Surge to be reliable and can often turn into paying 10 mana to get little to nothing for it. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis don't even synergize with the deck other than giving Ramos 4 +1/+1 counters, which Saskia the Unyielding can do, and she can deliver some mean beats in this deck as well. Borborygmos, Tariel, Vorosh, and Oloro are all good cards to cut as well.

Oloro_Magic on Bant Tempo in Modern

Tamiyo, Field Researcher can be incredibly powerful especially if you can emblem it and play some extra turn spells whilst also having Narset Transcendent out. I think with her you either go prison or CoCo to protect her and start dropping big things and turn spells for free every turn.

hjaycee on Bant Tempo in Modern

Thank you guys for commenting on the thread. I truly appreciated. Oloro_Magic, I am liking the suggestions so far. I might incorporate some kind of flicker subtheme, but I won't go too heavy on the concept. Wurmlover, I love the name by the way. So Tamiyo, Field Researcher wouldn't be valuable? That is the card I was attempting to build around.

Jedders on Competitive Bant Spirits HoD Updated

Hi Calispotato, I really wanted to like Mausoleum Wanderer and spent a couple of months trying to make him work early on into my local 'tyranny by spirits' era. The problem is that the card is completely opposed to the playstyle of this deck; the control play land, pass turn game that I so often have best success with for most hands and against most decks.

If you have the Wanderer in a Blue/White flash spirits tempo deck, especially running Always Watching and maybe Metallic Mimic, then Mausoleum Wanderer shines and you get max value out of the card slot. Without this exact shell and tempo mentality, it is a dead card - the opponent will play around it with ease while you are not pressuring quickly, and the body will achieve little.

Meanwhile, Negate is like gold dust. If I have one Negate and one Essence Scatter in hand, I know I am in for a good game and have any disaster covered.

These are the reasons I gave up using Revolutionary Rebuff and Metallic Rebuke sadly too - with control becoming more and more a thing, and people generally able to play more lands thanks to the cycle lands, these cards are becoming very bad. Wanderer suffers the same fate outside a dedicated tempo shell, sorry to say.

Lastly, the complex Bant manabase is not friendly to 1-drops on turn 1. Similarly, when rocking 1-drops with deathtouch like Narnam Renegade or as good as, like Permeating Mass, they don't need to be dropped turn 1 if it is difficult.... throwing them down turn 3-4 while leaving up a counter or Spell Queller is perfectly fine.

There has been an argument before now, until people have seen the deck play, of, 'Why bother with Bant? Why not just go Blue/White tempo like the others?'. There have even been people telling me, 'You could play it faster, it is a tempo deck', until I have beaten them as a control deck and then they have changed their tune. I have fond memories of almost decking Aetherworks Marvel... that was a powerhouse game, and certainly not something a tempo deck would do.

The point is, I am able to easily beat the blue/white flash every time I play it, and beat a lot of the decks it struggles with. Having the green gives me the card-draw powerhouse, Tireless Tracker. It gives me Tamiyo, Field Researcher which is a major win-con unless the opponent can kill it within a turn, due to the crazy card draw. It gives me Nissa, Steward of Elements as another win-con in slower matches, and a surprise to generally board in when I am on the play (seriously, watch them freaking out over a turn 3, on the play Nissa protected by flyers and counters). Another worthy mention is Lumbering Falls. This manland is amazing... a 3/3 hexproof goes a hell of a long way, and can easily kill off walkers even after your board is nuked. The amount of games this land has saved me.

Basically, I really wish I could love the Wanderer...I just can't. In a fast Modern Aether Vial tempo spirits however, running Metallic Mimic, Drogskol Captain, Phantasmal Image and maybe flicker effects like Essence Flux, the card could be boss.

Brownkid09 on Bant Flying Islands

Nice deck idea. I built something like this a few weeks ago, it has since then been changed and ultimately retired. Not sure how I felt about the deck as it would get torn up by most control based decks. (Go figure, midrange always loses against control). Did better against agro shells and creature based decks. Link to the deck list is posted below.


Originally, the deck was a bant fog shell with great creature curve. Haze of Pollen and Encircling Fissure held the opponents at bay while you waited to build up your board state. Planar Outburst was used as a board wipe just in case opponent were running zombies or creature heavy decks and the plus side was that your land creatures were left alone.

Using Wall of Resurgence to put counters on Cascading Cataracts for a 3/3 indestructible creature who could eventually have flying thanks to Halimar Tidecaller seemed pretty good. The extra graveyard recursion thanks to the tidecaller, made Coastal Discovery and other awaken cards that much better. Sylvan Advocate is a great lord if Fatal Push or other cheap removal isn't running around and Eldrazi Displacer was great with resurgence. Slam down a Verdurous Gearhulk and throw the counters on your creature lands made for a great board state /finisher.

For planswalkers, I threw in Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Kiora, Master of the Depths for the extra control. Not sure if these were even a right fit for the deck, but they worked sometimes. Not sure if this helps, but I did like this deck archetype a lot.

The issue I had with the deck was that if Cascading Cataracts was removed or bounced, you were that much further behind. Not sure what else can be done to improve this deck. But +1 for sure!
