Banishment (Geist of Saint Traft)

Modern Aggro Control



This deck is based around Strionic Resonator. Main purpose is to control your opponent until you can combo with Geist of Saint Traft.

Damage Combos:

Strionic Resonator + Geist of Saint Traft Possible turn 4, hit for 10.

Strionic Resonator + Geist of Saint Traft + Honor the Pure Possible turn 4, hit for 13.

Strionic Resonator + Geist of Saint Traft + Steel of the Godhead Unblockable/lifelink Geist. Hit for 12.

Exile Combo:

Fiend Hunter enters battlefield, you copy first triggered Ability with Strionic Resonator and both creatures will be exiled with Fiend Hunter The above combo applies to the other exile cards in the deck.

Combo is based from what I understand from rules I have read about Strionic Resonator.

Please leave a comment of what you like and dislike, all feedback is appreciated and will help improve the deck.


Removed 1 Detention Sphere for an additional Geist of Saint Traft.

Switched Boomerang for Cyclonic Rift.


Geist of Saint Traft is my win condition, so no reason not to have 4.

Cyclonic Rift has potential to clear opponents board, for a secured win. And generally I've only used Boomerang for non-land removal.

If you copy Fiend Hunter's trigger, although you can now exile two creatures, BOTH creatures will return when Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield. Here's the ruling from Gatherer:

If a triggered ability is linked to a second ability, copies of that triggered ability are also linked to that second ability. If the second ability refers to the exiled card, it refers to all cards exiled by the triggered ability and the copy. For example, if Exclusion Rituals enters-the-battlefield ability is copied and two nonland permanents are exiled, players cant cast spells with the same name as either exiled card.

Don't just put geist at 3 because he is legendary, he is your main win condition and more consistency is better; (Liliana of the Veil, hand disruption, and board wipes can hit geist too). Flooded Strand?
