Birthing of Golems

Modern* Birthing Pod

VoidxWolf Score: 3


Description

Deck uses Birthing Pod to ramp up through creatures starting at Myr Sire or Blade Splicer then dropping Venser, the Sojourner for the unblockable win usually when Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite gets down. Suture Priest helps to mitigate the damage I take from almost exclusively paying the life cost of Birthing Pod as well as chipping down the opponent early. If needed can also use Venser's + to make more golems or bring stuff back with Sun Titan . Included one Wurmcoil Engine because it is a better creature in the case that there is nothing in the graveyard for the titan to bring back.

The side board is not perfect yet but I think it is fairly versatile for any decks I may go against.

Other cards I am considering are Elixir of Immortality (as suggested in the comments) and Phyrexian Metamorph but I will need to playtest them a bit before i decide.

Any comments or tips on how to improve it are appreciated!

Looks pretty good. You might want to include Mimic Vat , because once you lose the splicer the Birthing Pod , your field loses the effect it gave. Vat can not only regain the temporary bonus from the splicer, it also makes more tokens in the meantime.

Elixir of Immortality can help put your cards back in your library if you need to find them again. The +5 life doesn't hurt either.

Good concept, +1

+1 for pods! They are awesome. Makes you not even care what's actually in your hand.

I agree with Epochalyptik on both the Mimic vat and the Elixir. I have not tried incorporating Venser in to my Pod deck yet, mainly because I'm trying to keep it very creature heavy.

But nice work bro!

Thank you for the suggestions! I am definately going to try the Elixir of Immortality , I really like the idea it seems like it will really help me out in the drawn out games.

Mimic Vat seems like it would be a little mana heavy and slow down my podding and such but its still an interesting idea.
