Argeaux on Emergency Ban Update: So Long ...

MWorl91 you didn't read what I wrote.

I already understood that, before AgentGreen posted.

Now, show me how many decks out there run a lot of -1/-1 Counters that can match other decks in the meta.

Decks will need to be built to match up against Control.

Which is what I predicted in the "guess the meta" topic.

I don't think that running stuff that puts -1/-1 Counters on Creatures is going to be a good play against a Control deck that runs Torrential Gearhulk and a bunch of Counter spells.

The most common way of putting -1/-1 Counters on things will be Soul-Scar Mage, which I have seen used in quite a few decks.

Control will just Essence Scatter or Harnessed Lightning that thing.

Does everybody get it now?

I don't really have any suggestions. The main thing I'd say is that you should probably side Sphinx of the Final Word and main 2-3 copies of Thing in the Ice  Flip. I just think it's a more versatile card and it can help with recycling Torrential Gearhulk.

Furthermore I found that your hand can just clog with Torrential Gearhulk and too many instants that bounced things. So maybe just take out one Torrential Gearhulk and switch out a couple of bouncing spells for draw spells or more counter spells.

I think 4x Dynavolt Tower could be main decked - if you can find the space, which I doHe ubt you will - but should definitely be side decked. I find it helps in both aggro and control match-ups because it puts them under a bit of a clock to try and beat you. It also has synergy with your Glimmer of Genius

This might be going against what you're trying to do with the deck so don't take this completely seriously. I've only been playing for about 2 months so I'm not too experienced with deck building.

Vergil_Redgrail on H: Modern Goblins, Olivia EDH, ...

Hello everybody. I'm finally deciding to try and finish the monumentally expensive task of completing my Affinity deck, and possibly getting some things for Modern Merfolk as well. Aside from the listed Haves, I've got a Saheeli Rai and 4x Torrential Gearhulk. You should be able to find the Olivia deck on my profile, and the Goblin deck has 4x Goblin Guide (ZEN), 4x Warren Instigator, 2x Krenko, Mob Boss, 4x Goblin Chieftain and a few Goblin King, for most of the notable pieces. For Affinity, I'm looking for 3x Arcbound Ravager, prefer Modern Masters, and maybe Kaladesh Invention if you have one you want to get rid of, 4x Mox Opal, 2x Steel Overseer.

For Merfolk, I'm pretty much looking for anything at this point.

Torrential Gearhulk is the best snapcaster substitute I've found.

Not bad, I to am running mono blue and if I had some advice it would be this:-Go up to 25 islands I know this can be hard but it has been my experience that control decks cannot afford to miss a land drop. -Don't forget about Void Shatter With cards like Scrapheap Scrounger and the new embalm mechanic you want to be sure to counter stuff just once. This leads to my next suggestion..-Don't forget about Horribly Awry Currently excellent in handling all the "good" creatures right now including the new gods and the cat combo.-Lastly if you can go up to a 4th Torrential Gearhulk Consistency is king with control and a 4th hulk can go a long way with this.

Other than that I like the build +1 from me if you have a moment it would be rad if you checked out my Mono Blue control (Infinite Torrential) I would like a fresh perspective.

If you keep with a low cost list, you'll need some value, you could try, Dynavolt Tower or Thing in the Ice  Flip, but I don't agree about removing all the Pull from Tomorrow or Chandra, Torch of Defiance...

Since you play at instant speed, you might consider playing Brutal Expulsion, Lightning Axe, Hungry Flames, and Fall of the Titans. Also, if your meta is really aggro-based, try playing more Censor main and put Negate to the sideboard...

For your sideboard, I'm not sure about Bedlam Reveler, you could put it main instead, cause side, you'll rarely put it in, same thing for As Foretold... Fiery Temper is great, when you discard it... Your odds are not for it now...

For the other options, Fevered Visions is made for control matchups and as my frieds say "put four or put not". Torrential Gearhulk or Goblin Dark-Dwellers can cast you a surprise Expedite not to neglect...

Hey! This is a super cool idea. Nissa seems to be pretty ramp focused. You want to be able to quickly get her to a reasonably high loyalty and then just start spewing out creatures, and Kiora can do something similar though less powerful. I would also then use more creatures, since you have Vizier of the Menagerie, Nissa, Steward of Elements and Kiora, Master of the Depths who are all creature focused.

I would suggest taking out Rashmi, Eternities Crafter because she is slow to come out, and has a small body. Similarly I think Kefnet the Mindful is much better suited for a pass-go style control deck. I would also remove the cartouche and trials you have, because they are not very powerful effects. Also New Perspectives could come out. In these slots you could add in creatures that are more suited for Nissa, Vizier and Kiora.

I would suggest adding in a Manglehorn or two, it has proved very effective. I think Prowling Serpopard is good but can be moved to the sideboard. I think then the best way to go for the rest of the deck is an energy theme, turning the deck into a ramp midrange/control. So I think Attune with Aether would be a great include, as well as Servant of the Conduit. This will allow you to keep a relatively low amount of lands, probably 22, while still paying high Mana costs easily. For creatures I would use Bristling Hydra, Rogue Refiner and possibly Longtusk Cub. Then you could also add in a few Tireless Trackers and maybe even Glimmer of Genius and replace Cancel with Disallow. This would add enough instants/sorceries for even a couple Torrential Gearhulk. There is also a great argument for including a couple Heart of Kiran because you will have Planeswalkers and creatures able to crew it, and it also turns on Rhonas the Indomitable. You will also have a few creatures that are big enough for Rhonas on their own, and others that can grow fairly quickly.

I think you can also cut down on your big, expensive flying creatures, and just keep a couple, as well as possibly cutting a Kiora and increasing your number of Nissa, Steward of Elements since she is a very flexible card with X in her Mana cost. Finally I would also cut one Vizier of the Menagerie.

Sorry, that was a lot! I just saw your list and was inspired! I love creative ideas like this one!

As Foretold seems nice with flash stuff and is all in all a good card i guess, if you go for it you might want to go more in the control direction and play more instants, so you can counter for free or do other stuff in your opponents turns then just play a creature, if you do this Torrential Gearhulk also would fit in nice, and i guess he fits better to the whole flash theme then the green one, also Void Grafter is a pretty nice flash creature i think. But all in all i like the Idea a lot!! :D #plus one
