Looks like Fork is not Modern legal man.

And to handle your situation of guys being removed, sideboard things like Hammer of Purphoros. Harder to remove and everybody gets Haste.

Play Krenko, and when they drop their removal, RESPOND to it by tapping him to double your boys before he dies.

If your opponent is smart, they will wait for you to tap first. Work around their play.

No Impact Tremors? That's Krenko, Mob Boss' best friend

Here is a complete list per Gatherer:

http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text=+[draw]+[card][email protected](|[B]|[W]|[C])&rarity=+[C]

You'll find 199 cards, all Common, and all draw cards.

Just remember not all of these can be used as some have mana symbols outside of your Commander's identity. Hope this helps.

Oh, and one of my personal favorite draw engines is Indulgent Tormentor. Sure he costs 5 and is a creature (Subject to removal), but a 5/3 Flyer that draws unless your opponent self-harms is great.

It may not be a Vampire, but I think Maw of the Obzedat would be a better fit for you if your goal is to sac things constantly.

Or, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

So other than being Pauper, is there a rule where the Commander is no longer Legendary?

Oh, I see. So you actually want to use Cascade to free-cast RB.

Okay. Maybe I need to fully read your deck's bio before replying, lol.

But I think the best bet you have is to run 1 or 2 RB's. Cuts down on their draw potential greatly and keeps you on top of your game.

IF you do not want to see a Restore Balance in your hand, but you want to use it in the deck, why not just run a single copy?

Or, actually I just thought of something.

This deck is 5 colors, right? So, why not in the place of Restore Balance, you put in some copies of that new Mastermind's Acquisition? Than if you Cascade into it, it's not so bad.

It'll nail you your Restore Balance, and you don't have to worry about it accidentally blowing up in your face.

Just make a really odd Sideboard with more spot-removal and spot-threats than an actual functioning Sideboard.

Sideboard weird shit like a single Karn Liberated, a single Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, some Ratchet Bombs.

Going colorless helps sway color restrictions your mana base may be producing.

My favorite white stall spells are Norn's Annex and Ghostly Prison. Might be worth looking into.

If you got blue and white, go with Sphinx's Revelation and grab some life while you're at it.

Said on Should I run ......

#11

But if I were you, I'd run either 4x of Kiln Fiend or Guttersnipe. Both are classics and both deal tremendous damage. Between Delver and Swiftspear, I think you've got combat covered. So I'd go with non-combat (Guttersnipe). Which is kind of weird; He's your Featured Card, after all...

Another good card is Elusive Spellfist. I run a UW Prowess that uses a playset of him. Works really well.

If you absolutely must be running some sort of big thing like Keranos, God of Storms, I'd suggest 2x of Storms and 2x The Locust God.

This way, you cut down on a cluttered hand from being unable to cast multiple copies of Legendary Creatures, and you get the benefit of Storm's draw / burn ability but also net yourself some 1/1 flyers as you kick into gear.

February 18, 2018 5:20 p.m.

Karn Liberated is quite clear on his third ability that you leave in exile all non-aura spells.

So what happens to auras? Do they hit the graveyard and go back into the library?

February 17, 2018 8:56 a.m.

Pretty straightforward. I got a colorless control deck and I wanted to know the technicalities on something.

When I swing with a creature who has Annihilator, and my opponent is choosing what permanents they want to sacrifice, before those permanents hit the graveyard, am I allowed to come in with removal and destroy / exile them, thereby forcing my opponent to choose something else instead?

For example, they choose a 2/3 creature but I want them to go with something a bit bigger, can I cast Spatial Contortion, killing their creature and making that choice now illegal for them, as it no longer exists?

Said on Does Coat of ......

#15

I was considering adding Coat of Arms into a token deck I have when I realized the text does not say "you control".

It says "Each creature gets".

Similarly to how Night of Souls' Betrayal will apply to ALL creatures on the battlefield, surely Coat of Arms applies to EACH, right?

The errata / rules does not specify, and neither does the card text. And furthermore, even the explanation text merely mentions the various Goblins, but not who controls them.

February 12, 2018 7:39 a.m.

Hyperalgialysis, yes I'd prefer Modern (Hence it being posted in the Modern forum).

I've got a Rakdos LD deck that my playgroup absolutely hates, lol.

Which Bolas do you think would be best to build around?

February 11, 2018 8:48 a.m.

One of the color combinations I struggle with the most is Grixis. I'd like some advice on how to become a better Grixis player, if you don't mind.

Every time I try to build a Grixis deck, I end up finding little use for blue and end up just making another Rakdos deck.

When I push through and use blue (Admittedly my least used color), I end up making Dimir and sloughing off red.

I have one Grixis deck. It's a mill deck that has two different ways to win on T4, but I'm looking for some other archetype as I feel mill decks are kind of a cheap tactic.

I should say that I do see you running Kazuul's Toll Collector, which is a great card. Another one is Brass Squire.

I feel like with Squire + Toll Collector + Darksteel Myr you're going to give your opponent a hell of a time getting around your slinging capabilities. It also saves you on some color restrictions, too.

I had an old voltron deck where I ran those guys and it worked pretty well. My problem was figuring out a strong enough draw engine to ensure plenty of toys for my boys to play with. I ended up going with Otherworld Atlas, which sometimes backfired when my opponent got cards, too.

Might go Mardu and run black draws, like Indulgent Tormentor. But that's besides the point.

If you're looking for an easy creature to keep Sunforger on without risking the creature being taken out (So you can keep slinging spells) may I suggest Darksteel Myr, as he is indestructible? Not the best protection, with with Modern typically running more direct kill spells rather than exile / return spells, I think he'd be one of your best bets.

Laurus, sorry I missed Tendershoot Dryad. As for what to cut idk. I'm at work so I'd need to wait until I'm off so I can take a better look at it.
