Fulcrum on What lands would be best ...

2 days ago

If it's the Modern deck on your profile, then temples are not your best bet. I noticed that deck had Scalding Tarn . If you wanted to splash black, I'd up the Tarns to 4x and add in a Watery Grave or Blood Crypt . Graven Cairns or Sunken Ruins are also good choices.

Might take a look at Phenax, God of Deception though you only have 6 creatures than can benefit from this without getting devotion up. I use Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker main board as the 4 toughness is nice. I would drop the Guildgates and opt for Watery Grave - it is a guildgate but you can pay 2 life if you need to use the mana NOW.

I also run a few Traumatize in my deck as it really helps the milling once you have mana set.

PlattBonnay on new to modern, need advice

2 days ago

Fetch lands are only amazing in combination with the shock lands (or ABUR duals in legacy). They are amazing because they fetch basic land types so you can play a Scalding Tarn and then sac it to fetch either a basic island or mountain, or you can get a Steam Vents or a Sacred Foundry or a Stomping grounds or a Blood Crypt or a Hallowed Fountain or a Breeding Pool or a Watery Grave . In addition, they thin your deck.

Combo archetypes in modern would be Pod, Twin, Ad Nauseum, Storm, etc.

And finally, whether you jam the best 40 direct damage spells into a deck or netdeck and build any top tier deck, you aren't being original or inventive either way. So don't be trashing on an archetype because you think it's unoriginal. Most decks are, as it is fairly uncommon that we get a completely new archetype in an eternal format.

Lordofevolution on Drawn to Power

3 days ago

Hello just wanted to put in my thoughts, 6 mana in modern is dangerously high some decks have won two turns ago leaving you in the dust, and without any ramp it just won't come in in time. Also most of your creatures are big enough without him it's overkill assuming you haven't lost yet. So I would drop the sphinx and instead add a mana dork, like Elvish Mystic or preferably Birds of Paradise being three colors. Now onto further suggestions

-2 horizon chimera

-1 bloodgift demon

-1 overbeing of mythFor

+3 Zameck Guildmage because it allows for continued draw power and helps better with curve so all in all:

-2 sphinx of magosi

-2 horizon chimera

-1 overbeing of myth

-1 bloodgift demon

-1 island or forest better curve and a little ramp don't need as many lands


+4 birds of paradise or elvish mystic

+3 zameck guildmage

Also shocklands as in Breeding Pool Watery Grave and Overgrown Tomb are great but not super budget just another thought sorry for super long post and if I seem rude, not trying to be.

40cal on Greatest Modern Milling Machine Ever Made!

3 days ago

So i love the deck +1.

I see we have Verdant Catacombs and Breeding Pool in here and i understand the Nature's Claim but if you know what deck your facing horrible idea just keep to Watery Grave i see you have fetch lands IMO add more to combo with Hedron Crab turn 3 already milled 12 cards, yes please! I would remove 1-2 Thought Scour for some 1 drops like maybe add another Surgical Extraction or Jace's Phantasm because having 2 thought scour in opening hand is pointless. Think about splashing in some white for Supreme Verdict and Path to Exile Price
