Silent Scepter


shedidthistome Score: 13


An attempt at a Grand Prix Modern deck. Silence on an Isochron Scepter , FTW. Thoughts and suggestions?

Concept by Michael Kerr.

I would consider getting the shock land Sacred Foundry , it took a dive in price due to its anticipated appearance in the new ravnica set. You also can fetch for them with the Arid Mesa. Other than that, brilliant deck!

This is a really cool deck idea. +1 from me.

Isochron Scepter makes for some of the worst experiences I have EVER had in any games and just to give you an idea how much I hate it, the second card on that list is Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer ..... +1 and that whole thing. disgusted look at Scepter.

I love these types of Scepter decks haha. Wild Guess /Faithless Looting might be interesting for draw. as well as Shatter .

Awesome deck, totally lockdown. Finally someone who uses Silence , it's a really great and underrated card indeed. Found it kinda strange to find Isochron Scepter in a red/white deck, but it sure seems to do the trick nicely.

For artifact destroyer, you might as well sideboard Shattering Spree , it's just.. horrifying for every artifact deck and will not be too much for just 1 artifact. If you like more versatility, Revoke Existence is the very best choice.

Anyways, Good job!

I do like this deck, and I have always wanted to try something like this.

But all I can do is cringe when I see the 4 Ghost Quarter in there.

I would recommend using 2 more Mountain and 2 more Plains in place of ghost quarter. Or even replacing 2 of the GQ for 1 more of each land.

But that is just my opinion. Do you own the cards, and have you assessed the local meta-game?

@genius1234, I have most and should have the rest of what I need by mid-week. What is your argument for removing Ghost Quarter in favor of more basic land? I'm all ears...

Seems to me Chandra, the Firebrand would be better than Ajani Vengeant here.

@TheThanatosian, Ajani Vengeant has better game-controlling abilities in my opinion.

"free" Lightning Helix > "free" Reverberate in almost every instance.
