Thoughtseize Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi: Thanks for the suggestion. I don't really want many, because they conflict a bit with my other 2 drops and doesn't really give me much, but it could be a good turn three play if I draw too many Blightsteel Colossuses.

Sgt.Pickles: I need the investigate for Shape Anew and there aren't really any other cheap options that work. Anthems could be good and I might try them at least in the sideboard, but I'm not sure if I really need to main deck them. I don't think that I really need to splash black for Lingering Souls, because it is a bit costly at 3 mana and tokens aren't my main wincon, and I don't think I really need Thoughtseize enough to splash for it either. If you did want to make an esper version of this however, Bitterblossom and Thoughtless could be great additions. Hopefully Dispels and Negates will be enough to stop Surgical Extractions. Worldspine Wurm would make a great budget option, but Blightsteel Colossus seems like it would usualy be better. Indestructible means that it is much harder to kill and it is also the only thing you can get with Shape Anew, so I want to have 2.

Thank you both for the feedback!

I'd predict to see a lot of decks floating around. Between Jund and Abzan there's going to be a lot of Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize and Liliana of the Veil. You're going to get your money's worth out of your Leyline of Sanctity. I'd strongly recommend tracking down a couple of Stony Silences before you head out. Tron and Affinity are both a decent part of the Modern Meta right now, and you might need to keep them in check as well. Good luck! I hope you enjoy the tournament, and as a nevadan myself I hope you enjoy Vegas. :-)

Thoughtseize hurts me too much. There are too many Burn players in my Meta. IoK is another story. I initially tested it out in place of Serum Visions. I rotate back & forth between the two. I like Visions because it keeps my hand packed, but IoK gives me intel and discards. It's all relevant really, but felt I also missed out on critical draws.

So when it comes to hand disruption there is Liliana of the Veil,Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Collective Brutality,Kolaghan's Command,Reality Smasher that are all played in a lot of the more popular decks. So Wilt-Leaf Liege or Loxodon Smiter might be good main or sideboard tech.

I think IoK makes the cut, but Thoughtseize just does too much damage on Turn 1. Think about it--your usual or optimal land per turn is a Fetch land. That at the very least does 1 damage, but more than often does 3. I feel with bringing in Thoughtseize, will only lean your deck even more towards Burn's favor. Lightning Bolt match ups will be more difficult.

It also depends on your Meta game. If all your people play are Mono builds, then I would go for it.

Temple of Plenty: yep, BNG is listed as Frontier legal.

Also, Thoughtseize was in Theros, so it's really Brimaz, King of Oreskos (or maybe Satyr Firedancer) that we'd have to worry about.

Just a couple of quick thoughts for you..... and my new Deck coming... I'll give you the finders credit.

For starters, Any need of Mana fixing? Sulfur Falls Hinterland Harbor Rootbound Crag's??? Think i'm going to "Adjust" it.

Next, What about Serum Visions for Sleight of Hand? With the Slight, it would suck looking at a draw of Orochi Leafcaller and Zhur-Taa Druid, On Turn 1 ........ Serum affects 3 cards, positively I believe?........ ?

How attached are you to the Kird Ape's and Wild Nacatl's (8 Cards total). They are 2/2 Creatures for 1 CMC..... So! If you really want to use the "Combo" as the Main Win-Con, Then i'd protect it a little more... These 8 cards are not even gonna be a "Target" for Thoughtseize or Path to Exile's to help YOUR MAIN Win-Con and the combo....

I don't know if I would suggest stuff like Counter Spells or Hexproof or maybe faster draws.... yet.... Ape's and Wild Nac's Are my issues though... I think Instants are my Direction for 8 cards.

Cheers, I'll Be back later. GL
