Tormod's Crypt Discussion

Ballzanya on Turn 2 9/9 Flying Trample, Turn 3 Win

For the sideboard, it seems Duress, Relic of Progenitus and/or Tormod's Crypt is a good place to start. Since you're going for a budget deck, instead of Damnation, you could play either Languish or Yahenni's Expertise. Bile Blight, Liliana's Defeat, Despise, and Hero's Downfall are all decent cards as well. If tron is a major problem in your meta, play a couple Rain of Tears.

SynergyBuild on Blue Pill: Turn 3 Combo **Primer**

I don't know what affinity deck you played, but it doesn't sound good. As with Eldrazi Tron, I only was speculating. Dredge and delve is almost a joke in modern because from Soul Sisters to Cat Tribal to Affinity (Rest in Peace and Watchers of the Dead and Tormod's Crypt) everyone has hate against it. I play Soldier Tribal and have hate for graveyards in the form of Dryad Militant, I didn't even want hate, I just thought it was great on the curve.

Against Naya burn, which is very popular, Grixis Death's Shadow, UW Control, Titan Shift, Death's Shadow Aggro, Death and Taxes, and UR Storm (Gifts Ungiven) I would doubt this deck has a good chance.

If you want this to be tier two then it has to be able to go against tier two decks, and other than the tier one I listed above, I think that it still won't fair well. If you have evidence against this, I would love a response because I love toolbox. I have only played Magic for two months, and only modern for a month top.

I have one TFT too and after some testing I think it's at the end more worth it to avoid 1CMC spells to use 4xChalice of the Void, which can be both a huge control card (vs discard, PTE...) and a 0 sac critter. This even if Star/Bolt/Faithless looting seems an obvious choice.

That means 4 Izzet Charm, and Tormenting voice/ Cathartic Reunion instead of Faithless Looting / Lightning Bolt.Snapcaster mage is a must too, to recast TFT or other spells.

My other Sac critter is Tormod's Crypt: 0 cost and can be painful for opponent's graveyard based decks.

I like Simian Spirit Guide here for speed too.

Here is mine:

Trash For Leviathan

+1 anyway, as it is fun.

How about Tormod's Crypt for free graveyard hate?

Archive Trap is good in a format where people search libraries (anyone that runs fetches)

might also need some Tormod's Crypt for the reanimator matches

As an 8Rack player I would recommend Pithing Needle and Tormod's Crypt for the sideboard.

I find Hero of Bladehold is your most expendable card at the higher portion of the curve, honestly it's just preference anything that costs a good amount of mana should be up for being cut.

As for the sideboard, here is a rough outline:

Other cards to consider for SB (these are great sideboard cards that based on your matchups I don't see as being totally necessary but they can be considered):
