Probably not quite the entire deck in 500 but close to it. The main expensive cards are Verdant Catacombs (you can play other fetchlands itll just be worse) Horizon Canopy (I dont know what you would play to replace this but you can definitely replace it) and Noble Hierarch (I personally do not think you can play the deck without noble)

Ok so this is my haul from Modern Masters after 3 drafts, and a box... how'd I do? I spent 165gbp on my box, then 30gbp on each draft, so 255gbp in total

Wow GeminiSpartanX, I have opened up 16 packs so far and what I have is terrible. From splitting a box all I got was a Verdant Catacombs, 1x Path to Exile a foil Serum Visions and a Domri Rade...

The other half of the box was simply an Arid Mesa, Death's Shadow, Grafdigger's Cage, Past in Flames yeah you should get the idea.

Then from a draft a Craterhoof Behemoth and that was it. My individual pack I bought was simply a Restoration Angel.

Split a box with my friend.

The best I get in my half is Marsh Flats and Damnation. Meh.

He pulls a Craterhoof Behemoth, Verdant Catacombs, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and a FOIL Cavern of Souls.

I picked the wrong half of that box.

Howdy there. I see you have a number of cards I'm terribly interested in, but you seem to have no wants list. Would you be willing to take a look at my binder and see if there's anything you'd like? Binder

I'm interested in the following, priority first.



2 Verdant Catacombs

Green Sun's Zenith

2 Eternal Witness

So a fair amount of things...I've got some shiny stuff, please let me know.

Hi all. I pulled a pack fresh foil Marsh Flats. Is it worth it to try to trade for 2 non foil enemy fetches? I do need 4 Arid Mesa, 4 Verdant Catacombs, and 3 Misty Rainforest to finish my Modern fetch playsets. I am not really pressing at the moment to finish them, but I want to do it eventually. I'm curious as to what people think the value of a foil fetch will be in the future?

Well basically, you can take this shell and add whatever creatures you want to it and it'll work. I would highly advise to keeping creatures in the 2 mana range with only a few cmc 3 or above. No matter how appealing Thragtusk looks it's typically better to stick to Kitchen Finks.

4x Blooming Marsh 1x Forest 4x Ghost Quarter 2x Hissing Quagmire 4x Overgrown Tomb 4x Swamp 4x Woodland Cemetery

(Adding Verdant Catacombs and Polluted Delta to the deck over time will upgrade the mana base.)

4x Abrupt Decay 2x Bile Blight*
4x Fatal Push 1x-2x Maelstrom Pulse

(*Optional other removal includes Dismember, Vendetta, Victim of Night and Go for the Throat)

Other upgrades would include Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Collective Brutality, and Liliana of the Veil.

Could use some work, to be honest. Cards to add:

Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, Priest of Urabrask, Dryad Arbor, Glimpse of Nature, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Promised End, Sylvan Safekeeper, Primordial Sage, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Worldly Tutor.

Things to cut: Lumbering Falls, Raging Ravine, Jace Beleren, Cinder Glade, the checklands, Mosswort Bridge, Earthcraft, your remaining basics, and most of your large creatures are underwhelming. This deck seems to have the classic Animar problem: too stompy to hold its own at TRULY competitive tables, and too commander-reliant (though that of course comes with the territory in this kind of deck).
