Trygon Predator Discussion

dejrgne, good idea. Yea I've actually already cut Druids' Repository from my real version of the deck in favor of moving in a Vow of Flight, simply because the one or two mana from Druids' wasn't worth paying mana for. I like the look of Trygon Predator, but is definitely a sideboard card, not enough decks focus on artifacts or enchants in tiny leaders for main board. (the ones that do I have played against, so it will be worth using.)

Trygon Predator is a great card, but it doesn't really fit the theme of the deck. If I run into a lot of artifacts or enchantments, I will work it into the list.

how's Druids' Repository doing for you? IMO it is a dead card unless your attacking all the time with those saprolings since vorel can't pump enchantments.. i think you should add Trygon Predator, it should be in every simic tiny leader since its a good Disenchant with flying.. check my Zoomba too :D +1

Vapor Snag over Peel from Reality. In a deck that utilizes +1/+1 counters and shroud, why send a creature back to your hand unless it's being removed by an opponent? Eh. Vapor Snag seems better here.

Elusive Krasis, Cytospawn Shambler, Fathom Mage, Gyre Sage, Jodah's Avenger, Novijen Sages, Plaxcaster Frogling, Realmwright, Trygon Predator, Sandsteppe Mastodon, Skylasher, Spiketail Hatchling, and Tower Defense.

sylvannos on Wotc's hints 2

Most of the problems in Modern could be fixed if WotC reprinted Force of Will and Swords to Plowshares.

Half the ban list is eliminated because there no longer needs to be a turn four rule with Force of Will keeping everything in check. The ban list can focus more on oppressive combo decks, rather than arbitrary turn count. It's been shown time and time again in Legacy and Vintage that all-in, glass cannon, turn one kill combo decks aren't very good when your opponent can two-for-seven you by paying one life.

I've also argued repeatedly (both online and in real life) that Lightning Bolt and Snapcaster Mage have been more format-warping than most of the bans WotC has implemented. It's the reason we don't see aggro decks unless they're Birthing Pod or Delver of Secrets  Flip status. Lightning Bolt -> Snapcaster Mage -> Lightning Bolt not only presents opportunities to wipe your opponent's board clean, it also functions as a win condition.

Swords to Plowshares, while a much better, more powerful removal spell, doesn't give you a win condition. It's a dead card in multiple matches and doesn't do anything against planeswalkers. However, it means creatures like Lodestone Golem, Trygon Predator, Merrow Reejerey, or Serra Avenger aren't trash because the same card that kills them also kills Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Blightsteel Colossus, and Primeval Titan.

As it is, Lightning Bolt is the default removal spell. It's the most played card in Modern, seen in 37% of all decks as a four-of. We don't see aggro decks in the format because anything that costs more than one mana has to have four or greater toughness OR it has to do something amazing (Young Pyromancer, Scavenging Ooze, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, etc.).

I doubt WotC will ever reprint either one in a Modern-legal set because of what it does to Standard. Force of Will wouldn't be warping. Would we seriously two-for-one ourselves to stop Satyr Wayfinders? It'd likely be hard-cast most of the time, using its free mode to tap out for a planeswalker and stop something like Hero's Downfall or Stormbreath Dragon from landing.

Swords to Plowshares, on the other hand, would mean they'd have to seriously increase the power level of creatures or risk the format turning into Magic: the Planeswalkers.

this is glorious

so much simpler then the two aether charge decks I've developed

AEther Charge

and a new one I just started working on

Meteors with teeth

I do have a possibly suggestion though that I think would be fabulous in this set up

Seal of Removal

Doing another quick search in gatherer to see if anything else might be worthwhile I also came across

Nulltread Gargantuan and Trygon Predator

also why use Thought Eater when you can use Thought Nibbler? they both have flying. is it because he is a 2/2?
