Tyrant's Scorn Discussion

Brutal_B on Interdimensional Initiative

Yes psionictemplar, paying into Hexdrinker and then untapping to hold up mana for Abrupt Decay and/or Tyrant's Scorn would be part of the plan. Plus I'll be able to pay into Broker to get a card back on opponent's endstep or pay into Torrent Elemental to get it on the board.. And if I make Creeping Tar Pit a creature for unblockable damage, it will untap at endstep cuz its still a land, leaving me with more mana and a possible body for blocking. Then there's the cost for Magewright's Stone that I can activate targeting Broker to activate her again. If Nadir Kraken is on board I'll also have mana to pay into it after tapping Broker to draw. I guess when it comes down to it I wanna be doing stuff on my turn and opponent's turn and constantly getting tidbits of value that will hopefully pay off as the game goes on. I feel the only way to get Bane Alley Broker to work is to always have mana ready to spend.

I like the addition of another Midnight Clock, so I did that and I actually added 3 Ominous Seas and an Into the Story. I don't have any Thassas or Folios but I'll consider those once I get more Wildcards.

What I might do is take out Tyrant's Scorn and add more Into the Story Just to give me more card draw.

BRG24 on Dimir Control (3-1 FNM) Second Place

The control part looks solid, but it’s difficult to see the deck having an ability to win consistently? Yes, Fraying Sanity and Traumatize will do that for you, but there doesn’t seem to be any other win-con in the deck. As there are a lot of surveil cards here, I might recommend something like Doom Whisperer or Lochmere Serpent as big finishers that still somewhat synergise, but since I’m not the biggest control player there may be some better options out there. I’ll also say that Drown in the Loch might not necessarily be the best option, since the deck lacks ways to fill the opponent’s graveyard early to get Drown online. Again, not entirely sure if the best replacement, Tyrant's Scorn might be ok? Hopefully this is helpful, and I wish you luck with the deck.

BRG24 on Is that a JoJo's Refreance?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Hopefully those changes will help the deck run smoother, but maybe a few more removal spells to replace the loss of the Tyrant's Scorn? Fatal Push obviously springs to mind but may be too expensive, but other cards like Dreadbore, Heartless Act or Angrath's Rampage might be good? Again, hopefully this helps.

StopShot on Legendary Equipment - Custom Card ...

@abby315, Ah, no the formatting is correct if you check the oracle text of Splinter Twin on Gatherer.

I get what you're saying about Splinter Twin being a risk as its easy to get 2-for-1 if you're the Twin player. I tried to replicate that here where you could destroy the equipment with the copy ability on the stack which would cause the combo player to lose the creature later due to the ability. This 2-for-1 only works for artifact removal however.

Do keep in mind Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker does exist in the format as there's no way to 2-for-1 that set-up and both my custom card and the Kiki-Jiki setup can only be pulled off no earlier than turn 5 which is pretty slow/late in the Modern format. While my custom card doesn't die to creature spot-removal like Kiki-Jiki, it does get removed easily to a wide myriad of format staples such as Inquisition of Kozilek, Natural State, Abrupt Decay, Smash to Smithereens, Abrade, Stony Silence, Kolaghan's Command, Rakdos Charm, Collector Ouphe and Karn, the Great Creator. There's also been more cards printed since Splinter Twin's banning that could be effective at countering the strategy that weren't present before such as Dovin's Veto, Authority of the Consuls, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Fry, Unmoored Ego, Trespasser's Curse, Harsh Mentor, Wilt, Force of Negation, Tyrant's Scorn, Spell Queller, Aether Gust, Sorcerous Spyglass, Cindervines and Assassin's Trophy. Given the card pool and turn 5 being the earliest the combo can go off, is the late-game flexibility too strong?

Also this card is designed for Modern competitive and casual EDH value, but more emphasis on Modern.

No real ramp for blue or black, just card draw and scry.
Sideboard Drown in the Loch and play as needed. Same with Tyrant's Scorn as it can be useful in some match ups.
Question, are you building this deck with paper cards or online only?
Take a look at my mill deck that I have in paper Im Gona Mill Ya

I have Cast Down instead of Tyrant's Scorn. What should I replace with Drown in the Loch? I think I want to keep this deck as a mill deck fully just in case I can't draw Traumatize and Fraying Sanity. I added 6 cards that will give me drawing power, but I still need Dimir ramp.

Yes, but Thief of Sanity only triggers when I deal player damage. What should I replace with Tyrant's Scorn and Drown in the Loch?
