Through the Breach Discussion

colton815 on Deck with Eldrazi titans

1 week ago

dollar sign goes before the number, not after. the word "creatures" has an "a" in it. "recommended me to make" should be "recommended i make", and "to dont dying of my cretures" should be "on my creatures not dying". also, its extremely unlikely the deck will be under $100. the emrakul itself is $41 for a single copy. its very unlikely you'll ever have enough mana to hard cast the eldrazi titans. the best way to get them into play is to "cheat" them into play with cards like Through the Breach or Elvish Piper. just note though that putting the titans into play in that manner will not give you their "cast" triggers, but thats ok because their real appeal lies in their "annihilator" anyway.

SynergyBuild on Spooky Ghosts (Budget tribal tournament)

I never play reanimator, preferring the strange combo decks like the old but banned Amulet Bloom decks, or currently Manaless Dredge and Enchantress, but I have always loved a good tribal deck, so I appreciate you making this deck.

I would suggest looking to build in an alternate win condition to reanimator, as graveyard hate is extremely efficient (From free like Tormod's Crypt to self-replacing like Relic of Progenitus), tons of which are colorless for any deck to use, that is why Through the Breach is played as an alternative to Goryo's Vengeance. I will look for a few budget options, but I am unsure I can find any.

SynergyBuild, thank you for all the suggestions! Goblin Lore is really sweet, the discarding at random has been really fun with tibalt and digs deeper than my other looters. I have actually had a lot of success with the Obzedat, Ghost Councils as the opponent normally has to deal with them immediately before it gets out of hand. It's the best target for Footsteps of the Goryo and it's an easy discard choice. Also, Iname, Death Aspect can filter them all out of the deck, thinning it and letting us draw more of our bombs.

I agree with your Duress suggestion. It has been underwhelming at best, (Despise would be a little better) but I could fit in something else.

For the mana base, I have had pretty good success with just 20. Since there is so much looting, I usually never have trouble hitting 5+ mana. I do like the idea of going up on white sources and increasing Lingering Souls as that card does work.

Thanks again for the tips! It has been surprisingly fun to pilot and the budget Through the Breach/Goryo's Vengeance feel has been awesome for 60 bucks. Let me know how you edit yours and the results! :D

Goblin Lore might be more draw for finding Demigod of Revenge, along with the Cathartic Reunions and Faithless Lootings.

Drop the Obzedat, Ghost Councils. They cost two white each, and you only have two white sources, the amount of games you will actually get to cast one is around 6% of the games you manage to get to five mana (I'd say fairly often), but 6% isn't good enough for 1/15 of your deck to be useful. Either that or majorly upgrade the landbase to have more white mana. Battlefield Forge, etc. are cheap lands that will manafix well. I suggest 22 lands for this deck total, and ~five white sources, to up on the Lingering Souls

Duress can be moved to sideboard or be dropped entirely. Unless your meta isn't actually tribal, like it sounds, then I don't see them being nearly mainboard material.

This deck looks like it could be a tribal Through the Breach/Goryo's Vengeance deck, and I like that. I am going to build the deck according to the price restrainsts you had here, and see what I come up with, I will get back to you then, but until I do, good luck with this list!

There are three general strategies if you are looking to cast big Eldrazi. One is by abusing the Tron lands (Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower). Benefit of this is the Eldrazi are cast , allowing you to reap the benefit of their on cast triggers. Second is Tooth and Nail. General strategy with this is to cast Tooth and Nail, grabbing both Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, and Xenagos, God of Revels to give Emmy haste to swing for the 30 annihilator 6. These decks normally utilize your Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl package. The third way is to utilize Through the Breach to play Emrakul, the Aeons Torn into play. In general, trying to hard cast Eldrazi with Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl is normally just too slow and fragile to be consistent.

Tron decks are normally 2 colors, and you can make most 2 color combos work. Most lists will use green as at least one of its colors, but mono is also popular. Tooth and Nail decks are normally , and Through the Breach decks are normally . With that being said, how are you looking to cast your Eldrazi? If you are just looking to toss Eldrazi asap, then Breach is likely your best bet. If you want To reliably start throwing down 7 drops on turn 3 or 4 and keep applying pressure and control instead of the alpha strike Breach gives you, then tron lands are likely your best option. However, the tron lands are not very color friendly -- which limits the support cards you can run. Tooth and Nail decks are kind of a mix between Breach and Tron. You are not locked into running colorless lands, thus giving you access to support cards. But the mana it is able to generate can be absurd -- although not as reliable as fast as tron lands. It also looks to alpha strike like Breach does. So just lemme know what style is appealing to you and I can get into the nitty gritty about additions and cuts!

Nahiri and Reclamation are spicy as heck in this deck. I need to play those.

I think there are a lot of great B, R, & W non-creature spells that you can play in this deck. I like the Boros Charm and Deflecting Palm in your list, especially.

Generally, though, I would increase the number of creature cards you play and decrease the number of other spells. It might be cool to test with creatures that do the same things or similar things you want these other spells to do. For example, Dragon Mage can help wheel new creatures into your hand for Kaalia to cheat into play. Utvara Hellkite can make tokens you can sac to Razaketh, the Foulblooded to tutor for anything you need. Rimescale Dragon + snow-covered basics can tap down a ton of blockers forever. Angel of Despair can vindicate stuff. And so forth.

I would go up over 30 creatures and test with fewer other spells that are super synergistic (like Crux of Fate or Dragon Tempest) or that add value once Kaalia gets killed for the 3rd or 4th time (like Liliana, Death's Majesty, Sneak Attack, or Through the Breach). Seriously, Dragon Tempest + Utvara Hellkite does work.

Finally, I would rebalance your mana so the inner circle of sources matches the outer circle of costs. This will help you draw into the mana you need for the spells you should draw. It looks like you have too much B and W, and not enough R. Consider removing BW sources and BR and WR tap-lands to play basic or snow-covered basic mountains. This is the most important thing I have learned about deck building from

Have fun tuning your list. I like all the spells here - it might be good to put more of them on to creatures.

you're never going to hard cast the eldrazi titans in modern. it just won't happen. the only way to really get them into play is to "cheat" them in with things like Through the Breach. i'm honestly surprised nobody here has told you that yet, and that fact really serves as strong evidence that they have very little experience with modern if any, even at just a FNM.

RhinoSmash on Primeval Titan Tron Help

abby315: Funny you should say that about the amulet titan deck, that was the deck I was playing before I got into this idea. And I experimented with Tron lands in that except having and finding colorless threats to sink mana into in that deck was fairly hard to come by as it was so dedicated to getting a titan out and making sure that he was your big finisher. I tried putting in some other things but it ended up diluting it to the point of just a wishy-washy blend of the two that had trouble ever getting rolling. Summoner's Pact is something I had been thinking about, but only having one green target has been my biggest holding point, but making sure that I do have a titan whwnever I have a Through the Breach is tempting and a more consistent Tron is definitely a plus. You are totally correct about Walking Ballista, though. That will become a 4-of ASAP. It is just too good. Thanks for the comment!

LeaPlath: Agreed, casting him isn't that amazing, but hard casting him is plan c, which is still a pretty good plan c. He is a Through the Breach target along with the other (eldrazi) titans. I definitely understand that this isn't as consistent as the T1 Tron decks, but I just wanted to try something different as I like brewing and don't really love just netdecking, although I'm not one of those people who are so hateful against it, I just like doing spicy things of my own design here and there and I thought Through the Breach was a cool idea since the original cloudpost decks were so powerful. Appreciate the comment and input!
