Thrun, the Last Troll Discussion

Eledain on Golgari Graveyard (Modern)

I really love this deck, a similar build, altho mono green, was one of the very few decks I had in paper magic. :-)

Here are some cards you could consider:

The one mana deathtouchers were my removal. I was never disappointed to see one of them in the opening hand or later in the game. :-)

Have you thought about a transformidable sideboard which does not fold to graveyard hate?

Cards like Nullhide Ferox, Obstinate Baloth or Thrun, the Last Troll can add another layer to your deck.

I've been building a similar deck, http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-gate-modern-4/

-I ran Desecration demon aswell when I first began building it, but usually got trampled by go-wide strats. Abyssal Persecutor is an awesome card with all the removal you're carrying it's easy to sac him to a gatekeeper or something.

-Vampire Nighthawk is another great card that helps with lifegain if you choose to run a few Phyrexian Arena, Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper.

-Funeral Charm is an awesome card for this type of deck, especially once youre able to get an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you're able to have instant speed discard, removal, or sneak a few points of damage in with swampwalking or buff your creatures.

-Really try to get in some Collective Brutality in over distress, its awesome utility and if you decide to run some Bloodghast or Dakmor Salvage+Raven's Crime you get some extra value.

-I would replace mutilate with Languish and probably move it over to the side, you're pretty overstocked on removal often a sweeper shouldn't be a big deal.

-Nihil Spellbomb is great budget GY hate for black.

-Fatal Push Cast Down Geth's Verdict are all great alternative sources for removal. I like running atleast one geth's because Thrun, the Last Troll is a card that I see often.

-Pithing Needle is awesome against resolved planeswalkers and other activated effects like manlands.

-Vampire Hexmage is great aggresive planeswalker hate

-Pack Rat is a nice win con that dodges removal and plays with your board wipes

-Runechanter's Pike works pretty awesome if you have enough card draw to get through and dump a bunch of sorceries

Hope this helped keep rocking the mono black!

M_Malcom,
Sorry I'm just now getting to your question about sideboarding!

I'm not sure on sideboarding for this deck, as it's much more Aggro than Ponza (which is my normal RG deck). But here are a few cards you may want to playtest:

Also, though these aren't really part of your meta atm, here are a few more thoughts:

Compared to your current sideboard, I'm not honestly sure if any of these would fit better in your deck, playstyle, or budget. But it's some things to think about at least :-)

Draw well!

Ok, since it's closer to modern, I'll suggest only cards that could fit that format

But, first of all, why don't you reduce your deck up to 60 cards?

Now, since your goal is to get big creatures on the battlefield, why don't you add things like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Steel Leaf Champion, Rhonas the Indomitable, Thragtusk, Acidic Slime, Craterhoof Behemoth, Gigantosaurus, Primeval Titan, Worldspine Wurm, Thrun, the Last Troll?

I've also seen that you have some creatures that require 2/3 specifical mana, so why not some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx instead of the Urza's Lands?

Another suggestion could be Utopia Sprawl instead of Market Festival

If you want to draw cards when a creature enters, instead of Zendikar Resurgent and Garruk's Packleader, add Beast Whisperer. It's cheaper

Cards I personally don't like from this deck:

Last thing: since you already have big creatures in your deck, what's the purpose of instant and sorceries that just make them bigger? I'd personally add usefull instants like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense

Not attacking with the 6/6 creature is not really an option. Heck, blocking with any of these creatures when they could have attacked will be a rare event. No staying back, only turn sideways! The best thing about this deck is the large creatures - the only other large creatures in modern that are able to go toe to toe with Lupine Prototype are Gurmag Angler and Wurmcoil Engine.

This whole deck's CMC is high for modern, that is not really a consideration. However 5 mana of three colors on 19-20 lands is really pushing it. For this deck, any card above 4 mana should have the text "you win the game when you cast this" or it is not really castable.

Neither the flash nor the uncounterability are important - flash is nice if I have a lot of instants or want a surprise blocker - I have nor desire to block and the deck has 3 bolts basically. Uncounterability is only a thing versus decks with counterspells. These are few and far between, so this is an ability for the sideboard.

That is why Thrun, the Last Troll and Guttural Response are both in the SB.

For Yeva - as explained earlier, the deck does not benefit at all from flashing in its creatures. Thus, a vanilla 4/4 for 4 is not really important.

For tarmogoyf - there is a consideration, but with few fetches (manabase is by far the most expensive part of the main deck) and few card types overall (4) and 0 cards that fill the graveyard - tarmogoyf will rarely reach 4 power.

My bad, I didn't really remember Goreclaw gives trample. But he needs to attack meaning he can die in the process while Surrak just sits there and gives all your dudes this evasion without even having to get in the red zone himself.

Also, Surrak's cmc is high for modern, that's true. However, I have to disagree with you saying that 6 mana for an uncounterable 6/6 body with flash that makes your creatures uncounterable too while giving them trample is overcosted :D

I guess the real (and only) con would be the manabase.

What about Thrun, the Last Troll, Yeva, Nature's Herald or Tarmogoyf?

Silverdrake on Naya Control - Modern - Suggestions?

Your win conditions here (except Sigarda) are all very delicate. Your planeswalkers don't literally end the game when they ult (trust me, you can easily be killed the turn after ulting Ajani if they already have a board presence) and your beaters are all very easily killed (again, except Sigarda). I'd recommend looking at win conditions that are harder to deal with, and/or planeswalkers with more game-ending power and less value-engine power. Examples of the former would be Carnage Tyrant, Thrun, the Last Troll, or even Thragtusk. Examples of the latter would be Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I'm also going to second the opinion that you should be running some number of Fiery Justice - it's an incredible control spell since you're playing for the long game anyway so 5 life doesn't matter.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

APPLE01DOJ on black green ATTACK

Hey wassup,

So first a few things. I know that common consensus is that Inquisition of Kozilek is better than Thoughtseize but that thinking is out dated in the current meta which has a lot more focus on Combo and bigger threats that dodge Fatal Push and Abrupt Decay. I'd advise a 3/3 split but a 4 Seize/2-3 Iok split is also valid. 7 seems to be the sweet spot for discard spells anyway. Next 23-24 lands is what this deck wants. Ideally 24 but dependent on options 23 is acceptable, especially with a full Bob (Dark Confidant) play set. I'd strongly recommend Treetop Village over Hissing Quagmire with 3-4 Twilight Mire to balance mana out. Being dual color, you can afford a few colorless slots. Rock decks of yesteryear used to run 4x Tectonic Edge. I would say you could fit in 2-3 Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, whatever is your preference but I wouldn't go without either. You should also cut Lotleth Troll, Rock is not the right deck for it. You don't want to dump your threats and 2/1 is underwhelming. A better flex spot option is Bitterblossom, Tireless Tracker, Thrun, the Last Troll, Phyrexian Obliterator, Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.

Next, 1x Liliana, the Last Hope is viable but you really want 3-4 Liliana of the Veil instead. She's one of the strongest cards that your deck absolutely should be running.

After making your adjustments the last tweak would be to fill some of your extra slots with a bit more removal. Everything you have is good but I'd suggest 2 more pieces. Cast Down or Go for the Throat or Victim of Night.

It's certainly not the only way possible but here is how I currently build the deck Rock 2018 & 3/4
