Warping Wail Discussion

You seem to be running a kind of control shell, so I think Drowner of Hope would be a valuable tapdown engine to control the board a little.

You also want some strong mana rocks as well to ensure you can pump out your big dudes; Hedron Archive or Mind Stone could work.

Warping Wail is a neat toolbox spell that could help out early game.

Warping Wail, Myr Superion, Myr Propagator, Myr Battlesphere are all cards I'd recommend thinking about for the sideboard.
There is an infinite token combo with propagator+galvanizer+palladium myr (you need to have a couple of ea of the latter though).
Also something to consider is Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Desolation Twin. Although both are high CMC late game they can be changers.

In my experience with Hope EDH, Warping Wail has proven quite useful for countering sorceries that would ruin your game like Vandalblast. I've never used the scion mode, but the exile mode, while rare, has managed to remove some nice utility creatures, and even a Master of Cruelties once!

At this moment I'm testing the Sorcerous Spyglass because I have a decent amount of land destruction as a bit of a subtheme and I can hit any fetches that are in their hand with it I can easily switch that though if it really does end up under-performing when I side it in. I do like the idea of Basilisk Collar in this deck though. I was debating between that and Feed the Clan so I'll make that switch.

My main format is Commander and I got a bit of flak from my girlfriend for wanting Sundering Titan. since there's nobody else building Tron around me and it got insta-banned in Commander I won't be able to play it elsewhere so I'm a little stuck having that in the deck.

Besides that, I really like the Sundering Titan can be found off of Conduit of Ruin. I had one game where I had natural Tron in hand, turn 3 tutored up Sundering Titan then used the floating mana to pop Chromatic Sphere to draw it, then Ancient Stirrings for a second Urza's Tower. Opponent was running Temur Delver and just couldn't handle it with mana open for Mana Leak.

Chalice of the Void is pretty expensive, so it is out of range for me. There's no doubt that I could run it sideboard or mainboard and make excellent use of it. Ratchet Bomb would work though as an alternate option for now and as a way to also hit any token decks that may come up. 2 mana for a 1-sided Wrath is pretty good.

I really like Dismember and the fact that it can hit things as early as turn 1 in a pinch, just I wasn't sure with the current meta if it's quite the best since I usually will have to pay 4 life to cast it. There's a couple copies laying around so it's definitely worth giving a shot at least.

Once I can, I'll make these changes:Perilous Vault -3Feed the Clan -2Dragon's Claw -3Warping Wail -2

All Is Dust +3Basilisk Collar +3Ratchet Bomb +2Dismember +2

Thank you guys for your suggestions, it's good hearing from others that have more experience in Modern!

Warping Wail could be great in here, less so could Spatial Contortion but it's worth a look.

Also, Mirrorpool could work pretty well with your big Eldrazi. Finally, thoughts on Karn Liberated?

Either way, sweet build!

superhuman21 - He can easily get to his win cons because of the tron lands. Urza's Tower, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Mine can produce 7 mana by turn three, which is enough for Karn Liberated. Expedition Map is in the deck to increase the chances of getting tron (all three lands together) by turn three. Chromatic Star is an arguable choice here, but the benefit of drawing does help being that black isn't well known for drawing (in modern at least). The signets aren't terrible ideas for ramp, but just seem a little unneeded. I would personally say Mind Stone is better as it can draw late game when the mana is no longer relevant.

Torment of Scarabs is too slow for the competitive scene he's trying to build this deck for, however Warping Wail is a decent choice for sideboard.

I personally love Torment of Hailfire just as much as Debt to the Deathless. The issue is blacks mana ramp. In order for it to be lethal you need >=. since Sacrifice and Dark Ritual aren't options in modern it may be a bit difficult getting to your alt drops of Karn, Ulamog, or Ugin. I'd replace Ulamog with Desolation Twin. You get 2 10/10s and while not having indestruct. it is a pro/con.

The other thing is that Chromatic Star and Exp. Map seem expensive for what they are doing. While this deck is mono, I'd still splash in Orzhov Signet or Dimir Signet instead of these. It gives you black mana, and you're not doing a 1-for-1 trade from colorless to black.

I'd also add Warping Wail into this deck. While it can only counter sorceries. The other card to consider to help lock down your opponent until you can get hailfire out is Torment of Scarabs. Otherwise +1

herringtonr on Modern Slivers

Through all of my experience playing slivers, I have found that Bonescythe Sliver tends to be a dead card. If you even get the ability to cast it, it will most likely get countered, and if it hits the field they are going to kill it before you can deal damage with it. So instead I started running Leeching Sliver. It doesn't double the damage but it gives unblockable damage which can be a game changer. Also, in the sideboard I would recommend 2x Warping Wail for board wipes and other threats, dropping the Screeching Sliver and Belligerent Sliver, and in the mainboard I would move the Leeching Sliver from the sideboard to replace Striking Sliver and Venom Sliver, since both of those won't do much as 1 ofs.
