Turn Aside Discussion

Silverdrake I really liked the idea of use Contraband Kingpin and the sideboard you're totally right, I'll drop Damnation and Doom Blade to put Turn Aside and Apostle's Blessing. Thanks!

I'm running a similar list as my pet deck, super fun to play. Smuggler's Copter, Heart of Kiran, and Vault Skirge are all incredible targets for the ensoul effects. Contraband Kingpin helps keep you alive long enough to cast your toys & helps dig through the deck to find them. For sideboard you might consider some Turn Aside or Apostle's Blessing against removal heavy decks.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

HHHmmm interesting proposal. I like the idea of Lightning Greaves but I'm not so sold that Turn Aside would be more valuable then say Dispel?

Opt. If that's the route you want to go maybe get some Turn Asides and maybe Lightning Greaves

I would recommend removing Thing in the Ice  Flip. I ran it in my Naru Meha, Master Wizard deck, and it just got in the way. I was like, "Oh no. If I cast this Turn Aside, I'll lose my transformed Docent of Perfection  Flip and my tokens."

Maybe you'd like running Mirari for redundancy.

And if you'd like to view a noncompetitive deck (it won two out of ten matches), feel free to pop on over to:

Silverdrake on Modern Laboratory maniac u/w combo

Cute combo, +1 from me. Seeing as how all three of your pieces are permanents that can be easily removed, you should probably consider some spells that can protect them. Things like Turn Aside, Rebuff the Wicked, and Apostle's Blessing are all great choices. If you're having trouble finding your pieces you could use a weird sort of Gifts Ungiven package, almost like an Esper Gifts deck but... wierder. You cast it and search for some combination of Lab Man, Merrow, Mantle, Remember the Fallen and Sun Titan (both of which you could include as just a 1x for this). Either they give you the pieces you want and put the reanimation in the graveyard, or they put the pieces in the graveyard and give you the reanimation you need to get them back. A bit of a clunky combo, but as a whole this deck is a little clunky (I don't mean that in a bad way - a lot of the most fun decks are clunky).

Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

Consider Blossoming Defense somewhere in here. Does the same job as Vines of Vastwood for half the cost, albeit only half the buff. If I were you I'd cut 1x Apostle's Blessing and 2x Vines of Vastwood for 3x Blossoming Defense.

Also consider Stubborn Denial for the sideboard. The correct play against infect is usually to let them blow all their buffs before casting the removal spell/combat trick/flash blocker - Stubborn Denial shuts that plan down by turning your beefy boi into a one-mana counter machine. I'd play this instead of the Turn Asides in board since they can stop problems that aren't necessarily targeting your creatures, like counterspells pointed at your buffs and sacrifice effects like Blessed Alliance and Geth's Verdict

Fling and Desperate Gambit are sub 2 CMC cards. I also use Izzet Charm and Turn Aside.
