Terminate Discussion

Well, here's what I would do:

-all 15 creatures

-2 Sorin's Thirst

-2 Insult / Injury

-2 Kari Zev's Expertise

-4 Cancel


+4 Inquisition of Kozilek

+4 Fatal Push

+4 Lightning Bolt

+4 Opt

+4 Rune Snag

+1 Mana Leak

+4 Mission Briefing

opt. -2 Murder , +2 Terminate

opt. -2 Sweltering Suns , +2 Anger of the Gods

You can switch out Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt for some other removal spells if they don't fit in your budget (though they're actually pretty cheap atm), but they're a good investment if they do.

Bolas in modern, huh. The only way you're gonna be getting to 7 mana in this format is by going all-in on the control plan, so a Spirit subtheme probably won't work out too well as they're more for tempo/aggro decks. Instead, I'd go for a good ol' grixis control shell, like this: Grixis Control. Lots of removal, usually 4-6 hand disruption spells, and some counterspells.

Your most important cards are Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt , which are two of the best removal spells in the format. If you're willing to buy I suggest that you make getting playsets of them a top priority since they're used in pretty much every deck with their colors. Next, I should ask how you want to play: do you want to focus more on killing creatures, countering spells, or be proactive and make your opponents discard cards? I only ask this because I assume you don't want to shell out your entire fortune on buying cards like Snapcaster or Liliana, which let grixis decks do all of those things equally well. Your answer will help with card choices and also with mana base building, which is kind of tricky in budget 3-color control decks. I suggest going more counterspell/removal heavy since there are good, cheap counterspells like Mana Leak that make it easier to build a decent deck for less money and it'll stack up better against what you face locally (except maybe the UR control deck) if you focus on those.

Basic advice is this: focus more on removal and counterspells, less on spirits and you're pretty much good to go. If you're willing to spend money on this deck, all the cards you need to know of are in the deck I linked above. Recommended budget spells for the main: Mana Leak / Rune Snag , Terminate , Mission Briefing , Cry of the Carnarium / Anger of the Gods , Inquisition of Kozilek (not budget but if you're buying them anyway you should put them in), Opt .

Sarkhan420X on red black minotaurs

you certainly don't want Anger of the Gods in a creature based deck. the only creatures here that even survive it are the ones that aren't even minotaurs. Rakdos's Return isn't very good either. 3 mana to make an opponent discard a card and take 1 damage is a horrible exchange. theres lots of better removal you could be using like Lightning Bolt , Terminate , Fatal Push , or Cast Down . you can upgrade your lands with fetchlands like Bloodstained Mire and checklands like Dragonskull Summit . Felhide Petrifier combos really well with Rageblood Shaman . if an attacking creature has both deathtouch and trample, you only need to assign 1 damage to each blocker before the rest can be

M_Malcom: Dead of Winter would kill his own creatures as well.

Sarkhan420X on Modern Monoblack Vampire Tribal Aggro Competitive

26 lands is too many. it reduces your chances of Vampire Nocturnus ' effect being active.

BR vampires can be just as fast as monoblack, and still be good against combo. right now, the only thing you have to really combat combo is Duress , but Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek would be better.

mardu or orzhov vampires are also an option. the first strike from Stromkirk Captain works really well with the deathtouch on Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn , and Blade of the Bloodchief with some removal (like Terminate ) means more life from their lifelink. Legion Lieutenant is another really good buff. Lightning Bolt is also strictly better than Bump in the Night .

Probably Terminate , Dismember , Galvanic Blast , Path to Exile , Assassin's Trophy the Sorin or the Baron into oblivion, Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek the Sorin out of the opponent’s hand, have any sort of graveyard hate whatsoever, Surgical Extraction away the Baron- or, better yet, the Sorin.

ClockworkSwordfish on Assault Suit + Goblin Welder

Yes, the Sol Ring will be brought back and the token will remain in play. The ability will fail if either target has become illegal, but you are free to target an unsacrificable creature just as you're free to target Darksteel Myr with Terminate . It's a valid choice, it's just that nothing happens.

Zoinz on Bolas Wills It

1 week ago

Hello there Senomar, I really appreciate the response! :)

Yeah i have been on the fence of Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and hes definetly gonna go at some point!

I feel like languish is fine in MY meta, not that often that it will kill any of my own creatures as i run so few and it also kills Meren of Clan Nel Toth and other 4 toughness creatures in my meta :) As for Fiery Confluence theres not alot of artifacts that it would kill so i would go with radiant flames instead of it :P

If i go with the reasoning that Counterspell is bad in 3 colours then i should probably take out Cryptic Command aswell, but my manabase is trying to accomedate the color intensive spells i play, reason for not alot of utility lands. Except for Tectonic Edge which i want to be a wasteland later :)

Recently cut Go for the Throat and i know its kinda controversial with me just saying that theres not alot of artifacts in the format but had to try cutting a spot removal for Thought Erasure . Tho now i think about it i should probably have cut Terminate instead.

Maze of Ith , is definetly a card some people play, but i really dont like it even tho it can save you alot of damage.

As for the more expensive suggestions, i really want them all... Snapcaster Mage , Liliana, the Last Hope , Wasteland but money ;) Force of Will is a card im really not that big a fan of getting 1. because of the price 2. Don't like the card disadvantage it can give as my meta can be quite grindy. (Ofc i know its a amazing card) Force of Negation or Negate are considerations instead :)
