Tidehollow Sculler seems fun here. With an instant speed sac outlet you can have the Sculler enter, sac in response to the etb trigger to put the ltb trigger on the stack and then resolve that first to permanently exile a card. Seems like value in this deck.

IT's really boring advice but how to get this deck to work:

step 1: Get a set of Aether Vials.

step 2: Remove your 2 discard spells (too unreliable, when you only have those two), Dust Elemental and Stonehorn Dignitary. Add the 4 Aether Vials from step 1.

step 3: win games (this is the funny step).

Aether Vials aren't stupid, even if they're not very budget-friendly. You can do all kinds of tricks with Flickerwisp at instant speed, which you can't otherwise. You probably know about Mangara of Corondor and Flickerwisp, but you can do variations on the same trick with Tidehollow Sculler (you blink the Tidehollow Sculler, while its ETB-trigger is still on the stack, so the second trigger becomes impossible to fulfill, and your opponents card is now exiled for good - can also be used with Fiend Hunter).

the manadorks... why 3, and why exactly those 3? I've seen other decks run 5 mana dorks, because that fairly often starts them with one on hand, especially if you are willing to mulligan for that. But 3 mana animals I don't really understand.

Soul Warden, Stonehorn Dignitary and Sin Collector are mostly sideboard cards, to be brought in against opponents where they are useful.

I assume Fiend Hunter and Tidehollow Sculler are in for their interaction with sac outlets (I.e. sac them with their etb triggers on the stack to permanently exile what they target) so for a little welcome redundancy I suggest Mesmeric Fiend and Faceless Butcher, since these two creatures can pull the same shenanigans.

Hey there, I saw your sell post in the forums. I'd be interested in 4x Leonin Arbiter at your listed price of $1.5ea, as well as the following from your binder (if they are up for sale as well) and depending on pricing: 1x Awakening, 1x Detention Sphere, 1x High Market, 1x Goblin Dark-Dwellers, 4x Tidehollow Sculler, Lingering Souls, and Terminate. Let me know!

Hello everyone!

I will be heading off to medical school this August and am looking to make some extra cash for this summer (I have to put down a hefty deposit as well as pay for travel as I look for a place to live).

I have decided to part out my modern Affinity deck, as well as my modern Eldrazi hate bears deck. All cards are in practically near mint condition and I am willing to ship/sell in the manner you prefer. I will list some of the money cards below (I try to beat tcgplayer lower with my prices and prices will be listed per each copy of the card).

Affinity PiecesBlinkmoth Nexus x4 ($2.50) Modern Masters 2015

Master of Etherium x1 ($2) Shards of Alara

Etched Champion x3 ($2) Modern Masters 2015

Leonin Arbiter x4 (1.50) Scars of Mirrodin

There are also numerous "4 of's" of bulk rares from each deck that I would be willing to sell cheap but I would need the sale to be worth the shipping. Caves of Koilos, Flickerwisp, Tidehollow Sculler, Wasteland Strangler, Memnite, Ornithopter, Signal Pest, Vault Skirge, Darksteel Citadel, Cranial Plating, Springleaf Drum, Galvanic Blast, Thoughtcast

Quote from MtG Comprehensive Rules 700.6. The term dies means is put into a graveyard from the battlefield. It is used only when referring to creatures.

Teysa will still trigger because the creature has to hit the graveyard for athreos to trigger. the term dies is now shorthand for "is put into the graveyarrd from play" and newer cards no longer have the lengthy text. this is different however from effects that say "would die". For instance if something is killed by Red Sun's Zenith it would get exiled and would ever hit the graveyard. But alas this is not the case.Further more both triggers go on the stack and you can decide the order in which they go on the stack.

benelas16 i would say Sin Collector or Castigate over Tidehollow Sculler for the reason that this is a deck that relies on sacrifices. Tidehollow is not a human for one but also if you sacrifice it, they get their card back.

subzero719 Kambal is a SB card. as a one or two of. Lingering souls is a great card and gives more reason for this person to be using collective brutality. Teysa's great. She should be a one of. and further more, instead of castigates run, Tidehollow Sculler

I like the deck idea, I've been running B/W Processors for a while now and here's what I would suggest.

I'd swap Tidehollow Sculler in favor of Brain Maggot more splashable and the power difference doesn't make much of a difference in my experience. Also means doesn't get hit with artifact removal.

I'd also suggest looking into using Spell Queller as a counterspell / processor target. Modern is full of 4< cmc spells so should find a home.

You also need Surgical Extraction and some form of hand disruption, Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize will help. Your aim is to rip out combo pieces or provide disruption to their game plan.

As you're a control-type deck you want as much in the way of aggressive strategies as you can, so I'd also suggest a compliment of Lingering Souls as chump blockers.

Also consider swapping one of the sorin's out for a Lili, either Liliana, the Last Hope or if you can afford her Liliana of the Veil.

Cuts:You can go down to the bare minimum of creatures tbh, spell quellers, smashers and wasteland strangers + brain maggot could be enough if you have the disruption

  • Dark confidant - you have high cmc stuff in here, a reality smasher would ruin your day.
  • One of the sorins
  • 4x Eldrazi displacer - they are good but very mana intensive and you don't have too much to benefit from them (i'd put in the spell quellers in their place)

Side board cuts;

  • Dovin Baan - too slow
  • Resto angel - not much synergy
  • matter reshaper - not very relevant

Hope that gives you some guidance and direction on where I would take the deck.
