Turn 1 Modern Win Hand - You build the deck it goes in!
Posted on Aug. 17, 2017, 3:17 p.m. by Catalog9000
Hey guys, so I recently made my very first Turn 1 Modern Win Hand. You know, those hands where you get the optimal seven cards and win immediately? The only problem is, I have absolutely no idea what sort of a deck to put it into. So... I thought we could have a little bit of fun!
I'll show you guys the hand, and you guys build decks around it.
Turn 1 Win
You'll need: 1x Mountain , 1x Ornithopter, 1x Infernal Plunge, 1x Seething Song, 1x Expedite , and 1x Madcap Experiment. Keep in mind this is only six cards. The 7th card does not matter at all, but ideally you do NOT want Blightsteel Colossus in your opening hand.
Here's what you'll want to do:
- Play your Mountain
- Cast Ornithopter for
- Tap your Mountain and cast Infernal Plunge, targeting Ornithopter so you can add to your mana pool
- Use all three of your red mana to cast Seething Song, adding to your mana pool
- Of this five, you spend four of it to cast Madcap Experiment and reveal cards from the top of your library
- If you reveal Blightsteel Colossus within the top 19 cards (Statistically speaking, you should), you get to bring out an 11/11 with Infect. Shame he doesn't have Haste...
- Use your last to cast Expedite , targeting Blightsteel Colossus and swing for 11 Poison Counters on Turn 1.
Alternate cards are:
Point of Interest:
Nah. Probably not. Anyway, have fun! :D
You would need to chain a couple Pyretic Ritual to get the mana unfortunately, but I could see this deck fitting into a weird type of storm deck.

You can use Pact of the Titan instead of the little artifacts.

Seething Song is banned, thank goodness so it doesn't even work anyways. That can be circumvented but not as easily. The power necessary to speed out a T1 hasted Blightsteel Colossus is immense, that restricts the deck build so much that it practically builds itself. Also, Shane is right. You want 4 Pact of the Titan over any of the free artifacts because 1 copy will not guarantee you'll get a copy in your opening hand. Really you need all 8 but we'll have to settle for 4 copies. Simian Spirit Guide, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, and Infernal Plunge will make up our mana acceleration suite.
5-6x Flex Slots for interaction
An argument can also be made to include fetches as well. Deck thinning can be really important when you want to dig for Madcap Experiment but it also means you get one card less that isn't a Blightsteel Colossus. I'm unsure of how the math would turn out as to which road is better.
There you have it. This deck does nothing else so you want to win as fast as possible. It'll be fun when it goes off but otherwise expect to do nothing a lot.

Also you could add 4x Street Wraith and 4x Manamorphose for more thinning. It's almost like playing 8 less cards in your deck. And if you're worried about killing yourself you can also use Intervention Pact to stop the damage from Madcap Experiment.
