Or, well I "ramp" using Rakdos Signet which comes in handy. It's hard to ramp in RB so I find artifacts to be sufficient enough.

And I run a similar deck. I use 4x Dreadbore and 4x Terminate for my main removal, with Anaba Shaman to snipe whatever I don't like.

Mogis for extra hate, and lastly 2x Lord of Shatterskull Pass. Make him big and swing for death.

Necropotence let's you choose how many cards you want and when you want. Go with that and supplement with lifelink creatures to offset the costs.

Though I prefer Indulgent Tormentor, personally

I would say that since you're going for spot removal, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is your best option. He allows you to keep up with your killing spree and strengthens your boardstate at the same time.

Nothing quite like a 1-2 punch, especially in Black.

Not to get off topic, but now I want an alter of Hermit Druid to look like Jason Momoa's Aquaman. Just wish he was blue

Make a mono blue deck.

Your deck has 220 cards. You draw 7 and it's down to 213. Five turns in and you're at 208.

You shall be the first person in the history of Magic to win with that silly thing lol

Alright, thanks guys.

My main concern is that your creature's CMC is quite high. You have 4x of Thraben Inspector and 2x Selfless Spirit, which is a nice start. But after this, your CMC looks like this:

  • 3CMC = 0
  • 4CMC = 3 (And all are Legendary, so you get one out at a time)
  • 5CMC = 4, and of this two are Avacyn (Again, subjected to the Legendary Rule)
  • 6CMC = 0
  • 7CMC = 1
  • (...)
  • 15CMC = 1

Because of this you have two major options in RW: Constant and mass removal (Tapdowns included) or lots of life. You appear to have gone the removal route, which is good. But can you honestly keep up with your opponent dropping a creature a turn? I feel like you might be trading cards initially, but they will out-pace you in just a few short rounds.

I'd focus on finding cheaper Angels, or a way to cheat them out.

Looks like you're missing Spawning Bed :)

May I suggest it be classified under Man-Lands? Sure, this particular one you lose your land, but you gain 3 tokens who produce mana. Feels more like Utility if I am to be honest, but it produces troops on the ground which is why I went with Man here.

With Day of the Dragons printed in Iconic Masters, does this make it Modern legal? Gatherer still says no, so I am confused.

I assumed this question goes here since it would technically fall under errata / rulings.

If you can make room, Niblis of Frost may be a nice sideboard to help tap guys down.

If you're looking for free blinks, I personally don't think you can get much better than Conjurer's Closet.

Sure it's a 5-drop. Not many people run Artifact removal. Sure, it's the beginning of your End Step, but here's the thing. My understanding of it (So I could be wrong) is that the End Step clears all stacks and finalizes all of everything. But anything that says "beginning of End Step" automatically puts a stack into play, which allows responding and normal triggers to occur.

It's like a hidden 3rd main phase. A great way to sneak in some last-second shenanigans.

I don't really know if this option was ever explored, but I'd love to see a Norse-themed Plain.

I have strong Norwegian blood in my family, and honestly that's who I feel the most connected to. Not just the people of the past, but even current culture. Now that we have Vehicles, I could really see it take off.

Bring in Vehicles, bring back Raid, have some Ferocious, maybe Delve for GB combos. It'd be a block with heavy emphasis on attacking. Perhaps even Exert. And since we're doing Norse, you could even have some Gods (Probably not) but you'd get to bring back some of the more iconic Subtypes like Giant, Spirit, Serpents, and Barbarian / Berserker. A new Subtype, Viking, could be added (Sort of like Ixalan's addition to Pirates and Dinosaurs). And of course Draugr (Zombies).

True to the old ways, you could have Jarls as the Legendary Creatures, and each Jarl is a specific color combo. Think back to the Khans. (Truth be told, Tarkir was like my favorite set from a flavor standpoint. So, obviously I am going to be bias in my ideas.)

Thoughts on that?

Best way to buy expensive cards like Doubling Season is to just set aside like $10 a week if you can. If not, and you intend it for non-competitive play, don't be afraid to buy heavily played or cards in different languages. I wouldn't go damaged though. It might be half a card haha.

I've been trying to make a UB artifact deck for a while. This thing looks really fun!

Some good sideboard cards might be Followed Footsteps and Mechanized Production. In this way, it forces your opponent to struggle with their removal. Essentially, they need to shut down your Titan Forge, but they also must find a way to get rid of your Enchantments and the original copies. Makes you go wide, so their resources go thin.

Superfriend decks exploit the use of Birds of Paradise and Doubling Season.

This allows you to tap into any color to bring out any Planeswalker, and when the walker hits the field you can generally use their ultimate right away because Doubling Season will double the number of Loyalty Counters they start with.

So, guys like Xenagos, the Reveler is suddenly dropping some big guys onto the field right away, or Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is netting you 100 life.

Here's my Superfriend's deck :) Glint Superfriends

I really like the use of One with Nothing. The thing with the deck is it looks like it is trying too hard to do too much all at once. With just two cards here and two cards there, you lack consistency in play. Try to find the cards that work the best together and use 3 or 4 of them. Unless your opponent / meta is really into things like Surgical Extraction, there's really no reason to not do it this way.

For example, if you are trying to not only discard a card AND pay it's Madness cost AND pay Olivia's Bloodsworn's ability, that's basically going to be the same as if you just played the card. You're using you resources in a non-efficient manner.

And while Ravenous Bloodseeker may be appealing at first, unless you are using cards like Distemper of the Blood, your Bloodseeker is going to end up dying to a 1/1 chump blocker. You can protect her with a Stromkirk Captain, but you don't have them in here. So, she's going to die.

BTW a great removal for a Vampire tribal deck is Feast of Blood and you should always run 4x.

But back on point, it may be harder to bring out Stromkirk Condemned over Ravenous Bloodseeker because you require two specific colors () rather than a generic and one specific (), but Stromkirk boosts all of your Vamps - therefore he is more effective, and more effective = better.

You have a really good base to work with. Keep play testing and find out which cards combo the best together, and which cards ultimately feel "slow", "sluggish" or "off". Replace those cards with the ones that you find work the best with others.

Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but a growing number of cards are not loading their reversed side for the transform cards, and many cards are loading as generic black images with only the card name. Also, many cards (Especially the ones reprinted in Iconic Masters) are failing to load prices.

Here's a list of cards I have noticed problems with on the decks I have created.

So far that's all I have noticed, but I did notice that with these cards when I enter playtesting it often has issues. It won't truly "randomize" decks (You'll often topdeck the same card you just drew, or you'll shuffle all lands to the top / bottom).

I don't know if it's a coincidence but it's worth noting these are all black cards with the exception of Pious Evangel, who's a white creature but transforms into a black creature and it is the "Flip" side-text that won't load. That, and in playtest when you flip him over it reveals the generic back of the card, and not Wayward Disciple.

It's Modern legal, but my new deck Black is the new Red is a lot of fun to play :)
