Warping Wail Discussion
5 days ago
Sinkies Thank you for your comment!
Actually because of the powerlevel of my playgroup I won't be able to take out the infinite combos if I want to stand a chance to win.
About your deck: You probably want most of the filter lands and pay lands, since you will want to cast some Eldrazis and they give colorless and fixing, maybe also things like Desolate Lighthouse!
Panharmonicon will help you to reuse the ETB effects of your big creatures (with Panharmonicon and Riku of Two Reflections in the battlefield something like Thought-Knot Seer can trigger 6 times, leaving 2 tokens). You might want to check out (if you don't already know them) Triumph of the Hordes and Guided Passage which can be a lot of fun if someone is willing to give you what you need!!!
About counters to protect your creatures i'd recommend things like Pyroblast for the enemmy counters and Cyclonic Rift's, Turn Aside and Intervene for the one target removals and Warping Wail for most areas and some flexibility. Also look for some ramp you can duplicate with Riku of Two Reflections, maybe Yavimaya Elder or Sakura-Tribe Elder.
Hope I was of any help, and good luck with your deck!! Will love to see it finished

You could drop 2 Ghost Quarter for 2 Sea Gate Wreckage and drop 2 Oblivion Sower for 2 Endbringer to help with card draw. Warping Wail is a way for you remove small creatures early, ramp into your big creatures, or protect from board wipes or removal such as Dreadbore.
I would recommend to switch All Is Dust to the side for Void Winnower. You can bring it in for the larger threats when you face a creature heavy aggro deck. There are a good amount of matchups where it is a dead draw so it can be better suited as a sideboard option.
Hope this helps!

You can replace one of them with Mind Stone which is a mana rock and can be used to draw a card. I would recommend Warping Wail to replace the other and adding Ratchet Bomb to the sideboard for some early game disruption.

I would honestly try and put more of these in the main as opposed to having them in the side unless you've tested and played this enough where it works well for you! anyhow, take care hope this helps. +1

Nice deck and nice primer.
In my Meren deck I use looter effects as selective graveyard fillers: Deal Broker pretty solid card, Gate to the Afterlife (still in testing period), at some point I had Smuggler's Copter but I finally took it out because you need to attack with it and it may die and then you can't animate it, Necromancer's Stockpile testing it in a differen't deck.
Unless you really need to play that third land each turn you could sawp Azusa, Lost but Seeking for the new Wayward Swordtooth, same cost but it's bigger body survives more damage, Demon of Dark Schemes and maybe even Toxic Deluge. And not much later it can make for a decent attacker and blocker.
Deathreap Ritual is bananas in this kind of decks, maybe you wanna try it.

My go-to budget Tron list I recommend to help grind FNMs is:
This gives several utility lands, while also having a good balance of colored mana. The important thing to remember: you absolutely cannot have lands come into play tapped and you will lose games to decks like Burn and Death's Shadow if you have to pay life. The obvious choice is Grove of the Burnwillows for this very reason. However, that obviously will eat your entire budget.
Pinecrest Ridge is probably the best replacement. Not only does it have the option to just tap for colorless and come into play untapped, you can get the or you need to search for Tron pieces or cast Pyroclasm.
This is pretty standard for a Tron list, the exception being Talisman of Impulse. While you don't want to be paying the life against faster decks, having the ability to tap for colored mana and still get Tron on turn 3 is more helpful when you're on a budget. It means you can play multiple World Breakers, add Inferno Titans, or use whatever budget options you have lying around when some of the more expensive fat cards (like Karn Liberated or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth) aren't available. That way, you're not relying a whole lot on cards like Myr Battlesphere or Steel Hellkite.
You need boardwipes. Pyroclasm is especially important because you will lose to a turn one Slippery Bogle is you do not kill it immediately. They will untap on their turn two and toss an umbra on it. By the time you can use another piece of removal, you'll be so low on life that they can simply play another one or get you with Dryad Arbor. The same is true against turn one Glistener Elf. They will use something like Apostle's Blessing to deal with whatever you have once they untap.
You can skip on red and go straight mono-green, but then you just have to accept that you lose to Infect, Bogles, and Burn. If these aren't in your meta, replace Talisman of Impulse with Mind Stone or Relic of Progenitus and the lands with basic Forests and a 2nd. Ghost Quarter.
The All Is Dust is probably the only non-budget card I'd recommend you have because of how much 3+ color decks get BTFO'd on turn three when you slam it. If it's still out of your budget, replace it with a Platinum Angel.
That's 50 cards total. Your last 10 cards should be:
- OR win conditions
- OR removal
Basically, choose a combination of the following that fits into your budget (I put them in order of importance):
- Karn Liberated
- Wurmcoil Engine
- Ugin, the Spirit Dragon
- World Breaker
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Sundering Titan
- Relic of Progenitus
- Steel Hellkite
- Spatial Contortion
- Warping Wail
- Myr Battlesphere
Based on what you've posted, I'd recommend something like:
2x Wurmcoil Engine
2x Sundering Titan (you can power this out on turn 3 via Talisman of Impulse and laugh at some Jund player's $2,000 mana base as they concede)
4x Relic of Progenitus
1x Spatial Contortion
All that's left is your sideboard. Based on the above, I'd go with:
