Description

Helix Pinnacle and Braid of Fire are the core of this deck.Bust ing lands with Upwelling and Braid of Fire seemed like an awesome angle for a combo-control deck.

UPDATE 07/05/13: I figured it out! I want this to be competition-worthy in Legacy. To that end, I know what it needs to do: Land Destruction. Please advise.

Looks good! Maybe add Gilder Bairn and Paradise Mantle ? It's a great win if you have Training Grounds . And even if you don't, double counters on the pinnacle is still a great outcome.

Thanks! Gilder Bairn can't double the counters on Helix Pinnacle though, because Pinnacle has Shroud. It could, however, double the counters on Gemstone or Braid. I'm not sure if it'll fit, but I do appreciate the suggestion.

Doubling Season would work. It's effect does not say "target".

Magus of the Vineyard could be good...?

What about Doubling Cube ?

I noticed that Decree of AnnihilationMTG Card: Decree of Annihilation and PillageMTG Card: Pillage are illegal here, for a Modern deck. Those are legal in Legacy, though.

Maybe swap out for BramblecrushMTG Card: Bramblecrush, Creeping MoldMTG Card: Creeping Mold, and/or Beast WithinMTG Card: Beast Within?

lewinbn and BrokenZygoma: Thanks! I really like both of these. I own some Doubling Season so I might check those out first.

aeonstoremyliver: Given that, I'm takin' this Legacy. Those spells will probably be important for this deck. Thanks!

I'm currently considering running Llanowar Elves and Druid of the Anima so I can ramp to Upwelling and Boom/Bust . Ultimately, I want to cast Helix Pinnacle , Braid of Fire , Upwelling , and then bust from Boom/Bust so I shut down my opponent's mana. Considering straight-up damage as a backup win con.

What do you guys think of using mana elves? What about Overgrown Battlement and Axebane Guardian ? I have a hard time sifting through all the options.

Birds of Paradise . Can't go wrong! Have you thought about Omnath, Locus of Mana and/or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger ? Banefire would be good too, IMO.

aeonstoremyliver: When I first thought up this deck, Omnath was in there. Seems like if I've tried a number of different strategies, then Omnath has been suggested after lots and lots of work, this card belongs in here. When I update this, it should be making a comeback. Thanks! I like Vorinclex and Banefire too.
