Tranquil Cove Discussion
4 days ago
It solves a problem that's been happening for years. New players get a bunch of cards,just kind of pile them together to make a Standard deck, go to FNM, then find out their mana base isn't legal after they've carefully looked through and made sure to use Standard-only creatures/planeswalkers/whatever.
To newer players, Coastal Tower, Azorius Guildgate, Boreal Shelf, Sejiri Refuge, Tranquil Cove, and Temple of Enlightenment are all identical. Imagine the shock they had when they found out they couldn't use Azorius Chancery but Glacial Fortress and Hallowed Fountain were legal. "Why can't I use my dual land that's worse? It's just a land!"
Meandering River's cycle of being reprinted fixes this issue. It allows a budget dual land that's affordable to new players, but is also always Standard legal.
As far as I know, WotC hasn't ruled out printing other uncommon dual lands, only that they will always print Meandering River's cycle in any Standard set.

Recently, WotC introduced a cycle of ten dual lands (one for each two-color combination) that always enter the battlefied tapped and have absolutely no benefits whatsoever to compensate for that (i.e., Meandering River, Stone Quarry, and so forth).
These lands are, without any question, some of the worst dual lands in the game, yet WoTC has been reprinting them very frequently, when it would cost them no more money, but make them much more, to instead reprint useful dual lands, such as the shocklands or filter lands, yet they are not doing so. At the very least, they could instead reprint the "lifelands" from the Tarkir block (i.e., Tranquil Cove, Dismal Backwater, etc.), as those lands have at least some form of benefit. Even worse than that, some of those lands have cool names and awesome artwork (most notably Highland Lake), so WotC has wasted such great names and artwork on mediocre cards.
Why would WotC willingly pass by a chance to make themselves more money and satisfy the players? Why could they not reprint the lifelands instead? What does everyone else say about this?

Looks good. Slither Blade is just a little bit better than Triton Shorestalker. Since your deck doesnt have any three drops, I think you could go down to three lands, maybe 1 island, 1 plains and 1 Tranquil Cove. Just some suggestions.

Hi! Fun deck in my favorite tri-color combo! Let's see if I cant't help ya out!
usually I give suggestions for decks as a whole, but seeing how your mana base is just basics, I'll focus on that instead so as not to info dump haha
This is the basic template for a mana base that I use. It's consistent but not optimal; it gets the job done.
this list will run you around $50, which is very budget relatively but I understand if that's too much for you at the moment. Investing in your mana base is the safest thing to invenst in because you can use all of these for any other Jeskia build, or scrap the parts for 1-2 other multicolor decks. If you stick with this deck forever that's okay too, because even though you may change the decks' parts, strategy, and synergies, your mana base will remain relatively intact.
Shivan Reef x1
Sulfur Falls x1
5x other utility lands, specific to your commander/strategy
Hope that helps you! Good luck!

Looks good to me my friend! I would add the following:
Crucible of Worlds is an amazing card for this deck, however it is super pricey.
Possibly and Isochron Scepter since you have 14 targets for it.

Hey there! Cool deck idea! I have a few comments for you:
- Unfortunately, Brainstorm, Counterspell, and Swords to Plowshares aren't legal in Modern. While these cards aren't anywhere close to the power of the above cards, Serum Visions/Opt, Mana Leak/Remand, and Path to Exile/Condemn.
- Blinking Spirit, while hard to kill, doesn't really do anything; a 4 mana 2/2 is next to useless in Modern. Drogskol Captain, on the other hand, will give boosts to all of your other Spirits, as well as protection from removal.
- Similarly, Spectral Shepherd also doesn't do a lot; I'd take them out for 2 more Rattlechains.
- Your land base might not be a priority, but I would recommend taking out 2 Islands and 2 Plains for 4 copies of Glacial Fortress, or Tranquil Cove at the very least.
In any case, neat deck! Enjoy!

wow, this land base is quite awkward. That vivid cycle is gonna slow you down, even running like the khans tap lands Tranquil Cove Dismal Backwater at least gain you life. Or maybe the scry lands from theros like Temple of Malice Temple of Abandon Temple of Plenty. I also like Cascading Cataracts because it generates any combination of five. If you want more lands that make all colors may as well run Rupture Spire since you already got Transguild Promenade and maybe a Mana Confluence. Of course, nothing shores up a landbase like Chromatic Lantern.
