4x Utopia Sprawl and 4x Arbor Elf is a good ramp package.

Also I'd recommend bumping Mayael's Aria up to 3-4 copies if it's your main win condition. Idyllic Tutor is nice for tutoring it out of the deck as well. I think Unflinching Courage would be better than Behemoth Sledge because it requires less mana, albeit being more fragile.

For infinite combos, Devoted Druid + Quillspike makes an infinite power creature and is technically in your colors. :p

Hope this helps!

I would definitely add Phyrexian Processor, it is great in this deck!

Cryptolith Rite is really good as well. I also feel like some draw is good, maybe Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

You won't want to be casting your commander a bunch of times over, so some protection like Lightning Greaves would be good. (It will also let you use the populate the turn you play her).

Fresh Meat seems pretty good if someone clears your board, because since the tokens technically entered the graveyard before being exiled, you can rebuild.

The new card Polyraptor seems crazy in this deck, because the tokens have the copy ability as well.

I would also recommend either more lands or more ramp like Selesnya Signet, Cultivate, or Harvest Season (My personal favorite for this type of deck).

Two words: Storm Herd. If you play this card, especially with you commander out, you pretty much win.

Devout Invocation lets you gain a LOT of life and get some creatures that can survive a hit.

Hour of Reckoning can be a board clear if someone gets out of control or just a finisher to attack without blockers.

I would probably add a single target removal like Swords to Plowshares or Beast Within as well.


Emmara Tandris is ok, but the mana cost is just too high to be an effective card.

Single creature buffs are generally ineffective in a go wide deck, so Unflinching Courage is not very good here.

Fated Intervention costs to much for what it does.

Healer of the Pride and Essence Warden don't do much but gain life, which generally isn't too good because they don't advance your board at all. You will have quite a lot of life from you commander if you do it right, so the additional lifegain doesn't do too much.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a good card, but his token generation is not very effective.

Maybe also an Overrun, a Glistening Oil, and a Tainted Strike?

You might also consider something like a Bogles aura suite with Daybreak Coronet, Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, Rancor, and Armadillo Cloak or Unflinching Courage with a Spectra Ward or a few Emerge Unscathed/Gods Willing effects to make it past blockers (or a Rogue's Passage).

Happy brewing!

Try leaving out Gaddock Teeg and put him in the sideboard.

Since the strength of G/W creatures in this type of deck should be high power and toughness you always want to pressure your opponent by dumping in the big creatures. Another thing is you can't play Overwhelming Stampede if Gaddock Teeg is in play. It looks like you overlooked that one. He can be good vs control decks and other decks that have a heavier mana curve such as an Ad Nauseam deck. So he is actually ok. If your idea is to protect the Teeg with Lightning Greaves then Lightning Bolt or any other low cost instant removal spell will counter that plan. Adding a few more high power creatures will do more for the deck. One card I really like is Garruk Wildspeaker. All of his 3 abilities will work really well with your deck; Ramp on his +, more pressure with the minus and ofcourse overrun. Cheaper cost cards that can help you trample in for a win could be Unflinching Courage and/or Rancor.1 Nylea, God of the Hunt + 1 Garruk Wildspeaker could be a solid option since they are much harder for most opponents to remove and they can set you up for the overrun to victory! Try it out.. hope it helps. :)

I like the basic structure of the deck. The main thing I'm noticing as a negative is that there are a lot of cards that don't contribute much later in the game, and there isn't a lot of card draw.

One of the downsides of a lot of the Exalted creatures is that many of them (like Akrasan Squire) don't add anything except another Exalted trigger. I would consider removing some of them, focusing on the ones with evasion or enough bulk to survive.

Armadillo Cloak is a great enchantment to stack with the Lifelink subtheme you seem to have going. The oracle text means it stacks with Lifelink, so it might be better than Unflinching Courage.

Rampant Growth is a single use and doesn't ramp you very much. Sword of the Animist might get you more bang for your buck.

The new card, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, seems like it would be a perfect fit for your deck, possibly replacing or in addition to Dueling Grounds. Crawlspace is another similar option.

Congregation at Dawn doesn't seem like a great option with the lack of card draw.

Off hand, something like Drogskol Reaver might be a good option with your lifelink cards. Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone might be better options than their Signet counterparts, as another source of card draw. Cards like Bident of Thassa and Edric, Spymaster of Trest would grant additional draws with double-strike.

Hope these suggestions help! +1 to your deck from me.

Tethys and WizardOfTheNorthernCoast thanks for your input!

I'm not sure about Eland Umbra since I already run Unflinching Courage as my fetchable aura that also has trample and lifelink. The Totem Armor sure is nice but i ran a couple of Gaddock Teeg on the sideboard to protect me from wraths and Spellskite to protect from targeted destruction so I'm not sure it would be a good trade.

That said I'll gladly test the idea if you guys could just help me with what would I remove for it.

sylvannos on Help beat Control Modern

Infect or Boggles (probably Bogles).

Control decks in Modern rely heavily on spot removal, then refilling their hands with draw spells. Glistener Elf backed up by Apostle's Blessing or Slippery Bogle means they basically have to play something like Drown in Sorrow immediately. Otherwise, they risk losing on turn 3.

Boggles is especially good against Burn because of Unflinching Courage and Leyline of Sanctity. It also beats up on Tron with Stony Silence.
