Nahiri, the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Modern Combo Control Eldrazi RUW (Jeskai, America)



Nahiri's Pet Emrakul

Hey, welcome to my deck!

What is this deck? - This deck is a Jeskai (UWR) control deck with the wincondition of ultimating Nahiri, the Harbinger into an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and winning through that method.

Why not use Scalding Tarn? This is mainly due to the really high price of Scalding Tarn. Instead I run the cheaper fetches that can at least get a Steam Vents or any other shock / land with blue, as that, in my opinion, is the most important color in the deck. I personally prefer counter-magic over path / bolt any day.

Obviously, I am not a top-tier deckbuilder / player, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to leave them below!

I will add a more in-depth guide to playing eventually

Maybe switch the anger of the gods with supreme verdict, and run the angers in the sideboard.... I also have concerns about rest in peace in the sideboard, I understand that dredge is a problem but rest in peace really throws snapcaster mage off and makes him useless to play when you side them in, relic of progenitus or grafdigger's cage may be a better choice. I also believe that geist of saint taft is a great card but don't think it fits into your win con's. Maybe young pyromancer in those slots to bring in against aggro. Thing in the ice is also a good choice as it plays very well with everything, and super good with snapcaster mage as it returns him to hand once you flip him.

I also disagree with Sorin being the better PW....Nahiri is just so good in this shell. I have being considering adding Chandra, Torch of D to my list to see how it plays out....may be an alt win-con with a chandra ULT.

Over all nice list

DrunkinAbbot adding cage is a major nonbo with Nahiri as its a symmetrical effect that means Emmy can't ETB off of Nahiri ult.

As for the RiP, relic is too slow with taking care of dredge, the overall idea is to hurt the opponent way more than we hurt ourselves, and generally I take out two snappies for the RiPs anyway, and it only really effects Mage if RiP is actually in play.

The Sorin comment by Falconer was a joke by a friend.

As for Torch of Defiance, I do not believe she is good enough to be modern playable. Sure she has card draw and psuedo ramp, but Nahiri filters draws in a control and can exile things like Blood Moon or ravagers or goyfs.

And finally, for the Geist, he comes in against slower decks such as Ad Naus or Scapeshift, which are prevalent in my local meta. The added pressure allows me to resort my resources to dealing with the combo while creating pressure on their side of the table. In a more generalized meta, I would replace him for 2 Dispel
