Pal00ka on Medomai Master Rewind

3 weeks ago

Though I haven't built Medomai before I have toyed with the idea but first I would suggest visiting edhrec.com. It'll show you what other players put in a deck headed by her. It's a great resource.

At a glance, you're a little all over the place, I see what you're trying to do, control voltron. First bit of advice: add at least 1-2 more lands, 8-10 ramp, trim high-costed creatures who don't make an immediate splash (cough Silent Sentinel cough), add some continuous card draw outlets, and add better voltron enablers.

Examples

Land: Command Tower, Temple of Enlightenment, Azorius Chancery, etc.

Ramp: Sword of the Animist, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, etc.

Impact: Stormtide Leviathan, Angel of Serenity, Angelic Field Marshal, etc.

Draw: Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, Mystic Remora, etc.

Voltron: Fireshrieker, Quietus Spike, Tenza, Godo's Maul, etc.

Looking forward to seeing this evolve!

Now time for dual lands, these are neccesities for getting your three colors reliably and quickly:

Hallowed Fountain, Steam Vents, Command Tower, Glacial Fortress, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Triumph, are a good start for your mana base

mil0ta on My Approach of the Second Sun

Hi! I have a few suggestions.

If you are going to try to draw Approach of the Second Sun consistently, you might consider going into blue for effects like Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand. When you're playing a fog deck, you typically don't mind your opponent drawing cards with you, since the fogs do such a good job of generating a kind of card advantage (just one fog negates the effect of many creatures). This is why "turbofog" decks run Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix and even Fevered Visions.

Your heart is in the right place with the inclusion of New Benalia, however you are also playing 4 Evolving Wilds. This has potential to mess up your scrying. Scrying has a kind of value, there is interesting debate surrounding this topic Here

I would also cut Ghirapur Orrery, as it is much slower than the other card-draw permanents I mentioned. While Expose Evil, Bandage and Niveous Wisps do cycle themselves, if you implement some card-draw engine as I've suggested, you can turn a non-cycling fog into a cycling fog, simply by giving yourself another draw step. A cursory list of fog effects in white can be found here. Green also has a plethora of efficient and "playable" fog effects, if branching into another color interests you.

Temple of Enlightenment will help with the transition to blue/white immensely. Cards like Pentad Prism are your only realistic choice for mana ramp in these colors, which you will certainly find necessary in such a fast format as Modern. Take a look at some Ad Nauseam and turbo-turns lists to get an idea of what you might consider adding into your deck. Additionally, Boseiju, Who Shelters All is simply an auto-include, possibly as a 2-of in the maindeck.

I understand that these cards aren't necessarily budget but there was no indication that you needed a budget. I wish you the best of luck in brewing with this awesome win condition.

i'd say you need a lot more scry effects, so I'd recommend running a playset of Temple of Enlightenment (8 fetches is too many, even for miracles - i'd say 7 fetches, 3 islands, 2 plains, 4 temple). maybe a couple Mystic Speculation as a 3-mana Sensei's Divining Top minus the draw. but why 4x Disrupting Shoal? it requires you to match the cmc every time. i'd say 2 shoal is good, going up a Think Twice, down 2 Jace, Memory Adept, and up 3 lands. good luck!

No problem. The main thing I would focus on is upgrading the mana base as well as working on upgrading your narrower blink targets. For the lands, I would prioritize dual lands that have the ability to come into play untapped, such as Prairie Stream and the check lands (Glacial Fortress, Hinterland Harbor, Sunpetal Grove)

I would also look into the Scry Lands as well, as they not only fix your mana, but also smooth out your draws:Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Mystery, and Temple of Plenty.

Just the changes to the mana base alone will give you more consistency and speed up your development, as you will have fewer lands come into play tapped, plus those suggestions come in at just over $17, but you can save almost $5 by holding off on Hinterland Harbor for the time being.

Definitely going to purchase/play this deck! Looks awesome. Why not run fetch lands? I know you mostly have islands but with fetches you can really thin out your deck and draw more non-lands, even if you're just fetching a basic. Also, have you thought of splashing white at all for access to Path to Exile? Like 1 or 2 Temple of Enlightenment?

Wall of Omens over Kaijin or Fog Bank? Drawing cards is always nice.

Dragonlord Ojutai over Angelic Overseer? Doesn't die to Lightning Bolt or Anger of the Gods if you dont have a human. And he lets you Anticipate for free.

Mana Leak or Remand over Cancel? If you want a more powerful 3 mana counterspell, why not Dissolve, Dissipate, Disallow, Scatter to the Winds or Hinder?

Temple of Enlightenment or Glacial Fortress or Prairie Stream or Port Town over Calciform Pools and Arcane Sanctum? You don't need the black mana Sanctum provides, and Calciform doesn't tap for coloured mana immediately. Any combination of the above lands (including the budget Tranquil Cove) seems better, even if you run more basics.
