N4kk1 on U/W Control

At first, Psionic Blast? Just no. And Mana Tithe is not good enough for control decks.

Go up to 4 Mana Leaks, card is great.

If you have the coin Cryptic Command is must.

More duo lands in form of Glacial Fortress/Seachrome Coast could be good. And again Celestial Colonnade is must have if you can afford it.

I have to say that Modern is not good format for new player as you have to know what your opponent is doing to play right. But everyones gotta start somewhere.

Also control deck doesn't need this many creatures. I would creatures to 6. Like 4 Snapcaster Mages and few Spell Queller or maybe Torrential Gearhulks. Those other creatures are more like sideboard cards. Celestial Colonnade is very good finisher so not that many creatures is needed.

Good draws!

Unfortunately i havent played standard since new phyrexia/innistrad so I wont be testing it

Im just asking since both of those decks are HUGE threats right now

Ramunap red is basically mono red aggro with Soul-Scar Mage, Ramunap Ruins and a bunch of deserts, Hour of Devastation and Magma Spray effects, you may have trouble racing it for damage

UR/Temur control is probably your worst matchup, with stuff like Harnessed Lightning,Supreme Will and Torrential Gearhulk

For reference, here is the average standard meta's most common threats

Thanks for the info both of you.

I like drafting and the reason I joined MtgO was because I couldn't draft often because I work on friday evenings most of the time.

I did 4 drafts so far (I'm always too excited when discovering a new game :) ). I also made a budget boros deck that did okay in the friendly area.

In the last draft I did I was lucky and pulled a Torrential Gearhulk that and the boosters I won allowed me to upgrade my deck to a good Boros build (it shares quite some cards with Ramunap Red)... I'll probably put the list on tappedout soon.

So far my experience with MtgO is very positive. It's expensive if you want to do events (because you'll need a good win/loss rate) and the strength of players is okay.

I'll just allow myself a small budget to spend on MtgO each month and I think I'll make the most out of it that way.

I think that you're placing too much on that single copy of Torrential Gearhulk. You should probably run it as a playset, and if you're looking for cards to cut I would recommend Pull from Tomorrow and Magma Spray. Magma Spray can be put in the sideboard while Pull from Tomorrow can't be flashed back to any effect with Torrential Gearhulk. I also feel that Trail of Evidence is largely unnecessary with the amount of draw spells that you're running. Running playsets of the best counterspells is probably a better idea than running a hodgepodge of different counterspells also. It does seem to me that you're running UR Control deck with a gimmicky twist, so I do like that.

N4kk1 I was just trying to fill in my deck with 4 other cards. I already had two cards that make black mana, just was adding something else in. It does make sense to add more Glimmer of Genius and Abrade.

I probably will not add Cut / Ribbons it was just something I thought might be a good addition as well as the Cryptic Serpent I was just trying to find something that would fill the void of not having 4 Torrential Gearhulk

I looked at your friend's deck and I don't have THAT specific Chandra, but I do have Chandra, Torch of Defiance that I could put in for the time being.

I did play test and only got one game in but I did end up winning it 1-0

How is mono blue Tron with Torrential Gearhulk? Is it better than running Snapcaster Mage?

Ok so I felt like playing a U/R control deck and looked up a pretty good one and decided to try and make it.

Well my local stores are out of Torrential Gearhulk so I had to improvise a little. I put in The Locust God but couldnt figure out a suitable 2nd replacement

Since the deck called for 4 Spirebluff Canal ( I have none) I replaced them with Highland Lake and 4 Wandering Fumarole (I had two) I tried to mana fix a little. So I added in another Submerged Boneyard, Crypt of the Eternals, and Manalith instead of another creature to replace the missing gearhulk.

I know the deck revolves around having those gearhulks and will eventually get them but this is my setup for right now.

I will have to play test to figure out a couple things!

saruman18 Thank you for the tips i will play around with these for sure will try and find a slot for them. If i were to put in any of them what would you remove?

So far i usualy just beat down with Torrential Gearhulk. But it is weak to Dispossess/Lost Legacy
