Color idendity is all the mana symbols on the card (excluding reminder text). Only cards of the color identity matching that of the commander can be included.

Omnath has a and color identity and can have Red, Green, Red/Green or colorless idendity cards in it. Windswept Heath and its ilk have colorless identity and can be included in any commander.

Title! I’m looking for any black fetch (Marsh Flats, Bloodstained Mire, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta) to finish off Legacy Reanimator. I have a binder full of good cards like Invocations, Masterpieces, RL, staples. The only fetch I have for trade is Windswept Heath atm.

If you’re interested in a trade hit me up!

SynergyBuild on Aurelia Lockdown Voltron

I mean, I don't see how this is stax, I see some very good cards, like Gamble, Imperial Recruiter, and Enlightened Tutor, but in terms of prison/stax, you only run about 6 cards: Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Ghostly Prison, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, and Cataclysm.

I'd suggest you drop the cards like Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for much more powerful stax cards. Also I'd think running some more tutors for Helm of the Host (the instant win) would be useful.

Recruiter of the Guard might also be good, as it is a second Imperial Recruiter.

Other cards I'd suggest you run:

Steelshaper's Gift - fetches Helm of the Host

Open the Armory - fetches Helm of the Host

Godo, Bandit Warlord - cheats out Helm of the Host and also acts as a wincon with Helm of the Host if Aurelia, the Warleader got Nevermored.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben - hurts storm builds and greedy manabases more than your deck.

Glowrider - see Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

Vryn Wingmare - see Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

Ruination - You run enough basics that a 3-4 colored deck will crumble.

Armageddon - Aurelia, the Warleader makes this thing basically a win, as you can probably beat face enough to kill one person before they rebuild, whilst rebuilding on your own. At that point with a couple more stax cards you might be able to drop your opponents all together. Use Ravages of War as well if you can afford one.

Crucible of Worlds - With a lot of land-destruction, or fetchlands, this card gives you constant land drops, allowing you to rebuild like nothing ever happened a few turns after an Armageddon or Cataclysm. Acts as a half Sun Titan in some cases. Strip Mine/Wasteland make it really good too.

World Queller - this card is godly. It can be used as land destruction every turn, and with a Sun Titan or Crucible of Worlds, you might not notice it's effect, but can name planeswalkers while you have none to get rid of a pesky Ugin/Karn/Nicol Bolas. It can of course remove pesky artifacts or enchantments, and still beat face a bit.

Thorn of Amethyst - see Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

Sphere of Resistance - see Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

Cursed Totem - shuts off mana dorks that get around the constant Armageddon effects.

Damping Sphere - hurts Gaea's Cradle, and any deck that tries to storm off will fail.

Trinisphere - This deck has a pretty high CMC, so this card might barely affect it. It will totally hurt the elf player, the storm player, and any other low-cmc player.

Aven Mindcensor - This doesn't affect you, but hurts your opponents fetch lands, tutors, or any other searches.

Luminarch Ascension - Acts as a powerful alternate win condition if you lock out you opponents.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs - Big Ghostly Prison, makes token decks squirm.

Magus of the Moon - If you run enough basic lands, this card won't affect you very much, because of the artifact mana you have. Other decks may crumble to it.

Blood Moon - see Magus of the Moon

Rule of Law - Shuts off storm, and this deck can abuse it by using cards like Stoneforge Mystic, equipments, Stonehewer Giant, and Weathered Wayfarer instead of casting spells.

Ethersworn Canonist - see Rule of Law

Eidolon of Rhetoric - see Rule of Law


Otherwise I'd only suggest you run some more rocks (Mox Diamond/Chrome Mox/Mana Crypt and all of the legal fetchlands like Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand, Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills, Scalding Tarn)


Cards to drop for this stuff:

Argentum Armor, Extraplanar Lens, Loxodon Warhammer, Mask of Memory, Sword of War and Peace, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Puresteel Paladin, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Balefire Liege, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Archangel of Tithes, Angelic Arbiter, 2-3 lands.

Otherwise, it terms of lands, drop Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, Temple of the False God, Boros Garrison, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Opal Palace, Rogue's Passage, Clifftop Retreat, and some basic mountains, add the remaining 6 fetchlands, and that should be about it!

@Hexaflexagon Thanks :) Yeah, I want to add those. My plan is to get Windswept Heath first, because I can just swap out basic Forests for them. Then after that to get Temple Gardens, and with them the Sunpetal Groves, removing Canopy Vista. The Grove is cheap, but it's a bit of a nonbo with Canopy Vista, because they're extra nonbasic lands that make Vista come in untapped (even if playing a vista first makes Sunpetal come untapped, but by then it's turn 4 already anyway).

One thing I've been wondering is, once I've got a full playset of Windswept Heath and Temple Garden and Sunpetal Grove, if there are any other nonbasics I should look into. Horizon Canopy would obviously be great but it's just waaaay over my budget. But maybe something like manlands or bringing back Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree. Do you have any suggestions on that front?

I'm not a big fan of the Dryad because it's a five mana card that dies to anything, even Shock, and with the amount of removal I'm up against, I'd usually want something a little more sturdy by that point in the game. It almost never survives a full turn against most decks. (which's a huge shame, because when it came out I was so excited for the cheaper Verdant Force + buff thing).

Hello, I think your deck is really cool. I also am a mono-white enthusiast, on a mission to make the strongest possible white deck. I have a few comments on your card choices.

Inventors' Fair: This feels too slow to be playable. You are effectively paying five mana and sacking a land to get Skullclamp into your hand. In addition to skullclamp, I personally run alternative draw engines such as Memory Jar, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun (which doubles as ramp) and Karn, Scion of Urza. These all serve as additional draw, albeit mediocre. You probably have considered these, but just in case you haven't.

Chrome Mox: I would imagine that, although the zero-drop mana ramp is powerful, the 2-for-1 you are inflicting upon yourself by playing this, would be too much card disadvantage for mono-white to handle. If you play chrome mox turn 1, it's as if you mulligan-ed. Mox Diamond has the same issues, although it works better if you have already played a Land Tax. However, maybe you have concluded that the upside of playing a chrome mox outweighs the card disadvantage.

Fetchlands: I would heavily recommend that you replace four Plains with Flooded Strand, Windswept Heath, Arid Mesa and Marsh Flats. Not only do the synergize with Crucible of Worlds, but they also make Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top better. In my deck I Include as many shuffle effects as possible. With out them, Scroll Rack feels like a dead card after one activation if you don't have Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer. I personally also run Oreskos Explorer, because it shuffles my library no matter what, chump-blocks and holds skullclamp. It might be a little weak though.

Flagstones of Trokair: I honestly don't get the hype behind this card. It cost a lot of $$$ and it is a nonbo with Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Extraplanar Lens (if you had one). Nobody will ever target-destroy it. It is only relevant when someone does an Armageddon type effect, though you do have Cataclysm. The plains then comes into play tapped -_-. At that point, does it really matter having one more basic land than everyone else? I dunno, you probably know better than me of this.

My mono-white deck is below. I don't get to play a lot. I mostly just goldfish. My deck is obviously much less competitive than yours. However, maybe it can provide some benefit for you, as your deck has done for me. Thanks :)


ellie-is on Help with GW Saprolings

Hi! So, I have this Saproling deck.

Ellie's Saprolings

Modern ellie-is


My goal is for it to be a deck that while fun on the kitchen table against multiple players, can still go to FNM without getting its ass kicked. It doesn't have to be the most competitive deck in the world, but I still want it to survive being taken to a competitive environment every once in a while.

So right now I'm trying to figure out ways to up the competitiveness. I'm saving for a set of Windswept Heath, which I think I can safely add without changing the rest of the mana base too much, and, if I'm right and the new Ravnica set prints Temple Gardens, I'll try to get some of those too (and maybe a couple Sunpetal Groves would be good too at that point).

But besides the lands, I'm not too sure on what to do. I'm thinking another Garruk Wildspeaker would probably be good, because a single copy isn't really consistent enough (tbh the only reason I have just the one is that they're not exactly cheap). Any thoughts on that? Other than that, I don't know what could be changed or replaced, but I really would love suggestions.

Finally, the sideboard is a bit of a mess. I don't know enough about the local meta yet to build around it, so I just threw in some catch-all answers to specific card types as opposed to trying to fight specific decks. But I'd also really appreciate ideas on improving that.

Thank you very much for reading! I'd really love your thoughts on the deck and ways to make it better.

The first thing I would add would be Fleecemane Lion, probably over Skyhunter Skirmisher. I would definitely add more dual lands like Canopy Vista and Temple Garden, fetches like Windswept Heath. If budget is a concern you can get stuff like Selesnya Guildgate for really cheap.

Next I would add some sort of removal or answers to what your opponent is doing. For instance, if someone plays Ensnaring Bridge against you, you effectively cannot do anything about it, but if you have Disenchant in the sideboard, you can answer artifacts. Path of Exile is a staple for creature removal in white in modern is something else I would add.

You also can consider anti-board wipe cards like Heroic Intervention, or maybe some graveyard recursion in Return to the Ranks.

This deck could use some love on the curve too, right now you have no 2 or 4 drops in a deck that probably wants to play a creature every single turn seems like bad tempo for a mid-range tribal deck.
