R/U Burn/Control Siege Dreadnought

Standard* Burn Control

akarih


Description

Use cards like Cancel and Scatter to the Winds to remove creatures before they come. If that doesn't work, burn them off the field. For a early game board wipe, use sweltering suns. Use low mana creatures like nef-crop entangler and slitherblade to attack and block and then bring in the consulate dreadnought, siege modification and cryptic serpent for the heavy lifting.PLEASE give advice on how to improve, thanks!

Hello, I love the deck. But I have a few suggestions, first, you have too many aggro creatures. Slither Blade and Nef-Crop Entangler have no home in a control deck. Also, maybe add a dangerous board sweeper such as Engulfing Shores. You could also switch into white, which would allow for taxing cards like Authority of the Consuls and the instant game win Aerial Modification. Also, maybe remove Failed Inspection and Cancel to instead add Deny Existence. I only costs three mana and exiles the countered spell. Well, I love your deck and I hope it suits you well.

P.S Void Shatter is also a better card than Cancel.

P.P.S

Malfunction isn't great either. An average "destroy target creature" card hovers around three mana. Malfunction is four and doesn't successfully destroy it. Magma Spray is also "Strictly Better" than shock so you might want to use that instead.

Wow... Um.. A lot of things:

  1. You have 64 cards, 60 is what almost all optimized lists run.

  2. Siege Modification + Consulate Dreadnought is a bad combo, I get that it's the focus of your deck... But just keep in mind that you're starting from a bad spot.

  3. The rest of the list is filled with 2-ofs and 1-ofs... That will NEVER be consistent. Find a focus and stick to it.

  4. I'll be happy to help once you've picked a direction and trimmed it down but you have too much stuff for me to advise a direction without building you a new deck.

Zaueski, I know my deck is inconsistent, but it was based on cards I had...
