Delta-117 Deckling

I started playing Magic the Gathering around the time of Journey into Nyx and since then I have come to enjoy this trading card game, and I have gone on to collect a growing number of cards from both sets old and new.

My favourite color combination in magic would be Simic (U/G). Although as of late I have been playing a lot more like R/B, Mono black/colourless eldrazi, and soon to be G/B. Currently I play mostly standard and my main deck that i'm working on towards is G/B Delirium to replace my former mono black eldrazi deck that did perform quite fine using cards like Reality Smasher, Thought-Knot Seer, Wasteland Strangler, Transgress the Mind, along with plenty of other forms of discard for a while but decks like, G/R Aetherworks, U/W Flash can give it trouble due to Reflector Mage, then of course the existence of Ceremonious Rejection is another reason for me stopping using that deck even though it was a fun one. Because it's not at all pleasing to see cards like my Void Winnower get countered by that 1 mana card even though I did use Oblivion Sower and Shrine to the Forsaken Gods to get me more mana and sometimes even exile some Emrakul, the Promised Ends in the process!

Here was my former eldrazi deck and below that will be my next new deck for hopefully a long time yet to come.

If you get a chance, I'd love your thoughts over on this thread: Infect without Gitaxian Probe. And no worries whatsoever if you don't!

So I noticed you seem interested in Hedron Alignment builds so I thought I would share mine with you. It's a completely functional Zombie build that dances around the Alignment while you do your Zombie thing. It's one of my favorite decks to play in our group right now.

Anyway, hope you like it :)

Delta-117 Here is my take on the Hedron Alignment build for Frontier: Frontier Hedron Alignment Jank. I was thinking about using Hedron Alignment in standard, but it just really does not have the support that it does in Frontier. With delve cards, especially Tasigur, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise, it is a lot easier to get Hedron into exile. Also, I have Collective Brutality to pitch it into the grave, and Fragmentize to destroy it. Almost every card in the list can be used to either exile or destroy the alignment. Good luck with your own build!

Yeah I got a lot of saved decks PartyJ, quite a few of them are mine and lots still by others. I like to play Atraxa the most currently, as I already liked Vorel of the Hull Clade and so I seen this as a fun way to improve the deck. I got a LOT of Atraxa decklists on here as I'm trying to look at a lot of what others did. Eventually going to get around to finishing completely my own Atraxa list I have about 2 of them currently.

One was superfriends while the other was some planeswalkers, but focusing also on all of the other types of counters too! I'm probably going to wait until all of the Aether Revolt spoilers to see if the energy mechanic is worth including in an Atraxa deck if it gets a lot more good support. That's when I got to finalize one of those lists and start clearing out some of the rest, as it's currently too many.

Eventually I'm going to have probably 5 finished Edh decks; A mono color Talrand, Sky Summoner / Gonti, Lord of Luxury or Omnath, Locus of Mana deck.My 2 color Athreos, God of Passage,Then for 3 color I was thinking either Kaalia of the Vast, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, or Queen Marchesa, Then of course Atraxa, Praetors' Voice for 4 color. Then last but not least, for 5 color Sliver Overlord.

Thanks for the upvote on that list anyways!

I was hoping for a masterpiece but 16 packs of Aether Rebolt and 6 kaladesh at the prereleases didn't give me one.

But this Friday I will be opening another 41 packs (38 aether revolt packs, 1 kaladesh pack and 2 standard showdown packs) so wish me luck!

January 17, 2017 8:38 p.m.

I would really like to get a masterpiece Wurmcoil Engine, or really any of the tron related masterpieces although this one I care for the most, and I will in fact be buying a box on launch day. My store still has standard showdown packs to give out on the sale of booster boxes as well and so I get two!

Said on Dimir in Standard...


I suppose. Well either way you should consider doing up a sideboard of 15 cards for this anyways.

January 17, 2017 7:08 p.m.

Said on Dimir in Standard...


Also I think a few more lands might be a good idea. I was thinking maybe instead like 22? You could start by taking out Rush of Vitality?

January 17, 2017 6:22 p.m.

Said on Dimir in Standard...


I would add Baral, Chief of Compliance instead of Curious Homunculus  Flip, and if you can try to get a few Choked Estuary's, Aether Hubs or Sunken Hollows.

Then Grasp of Darkness is a good choice too, and even a bit more expensive though there's Fatal Push. Ob Nixilis Reignited is not a bad idea either.

I know some of this won't be in standard quite as long, so unless you can get them rather easily and cheap don't bother with some of these.

January 17, 2017 5:44 p.m.

Oops, here is the list:

Modern Infect

Modern* Delta-117

Here is my list for infect, I made some changes to it. How does this seem? I'm really unsure about the sideboard and whether or not I should include some of the "maybeboard" cards to either than main 60, or to my sideboard.

January 17, 2017 3 p.m.

Said on G/B Counter Cats...


Maybe add Evolving Wilds to help with getting revolt on your Fatal Push?

January 17, 2017 noon

One thing I was doing was putting +1/+1 counters on my own Aethersphere Harvester from a Verdurous Gearhulk, it was pretty effective.

January 17, 2017 9:22 a.m.

Said on Modern Infect...


I think I'm actually going to try a Wild Defiance mainboard perhaps.

January 17, 2017 8:15 a.m.

What I was actually now thinking rather than Renegade Map, was trying Hope of Ghirapur. This is both an artifact and creature unlike Renegade Map. And I think it might replace the pilgrim's eye's I was using.

I think your forgetting I can have other targets for Verdurous Gearhulk like Grim Flayer and Mindwrack Demon so plenty of trample creatures. In an alternate build I was thinking focusing on this a bit more with the inclusion of a Decimator of the Provinces.

Then finally while I hadn't ever thought of including one, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be a good idea if not for the fact he won't be in standard all that much longer and I would otherwise consider this if I owned any. I sold my one and only Gideon like a month ago. It went towards paying for one of my Liliana, the Last Hope's.

January 16, 2017 8:13 p.m.

One thing that I did that was amusing was at a prerelease was put a Mechanized Production on a Consulate Skygate, but I never got to win with it as this made my opponent surrender the following turn. I already in fact own 2 Mechanized Production, and even though I will be working on my b/g delirium and Grixis control standard decks, I may still build this on the side in paper. I haven't updated this since spoilers finished but I will see what I can do with it again soon.

January 16, 2017 12:41 p.m.

If I can acquire a second Gisela, the Broken Blade preferably from trading I will add a second as I think your right. Although what worries me is that I'm losing another way to find one of my few white mana sources, so perhaps is another additional land needed to the deck/one that replaces another for another white source needed perhaps? I was thinking even another Evolving Wilds could help as it would help with revolt from Fatal Push once I get a few of those for this too.

Then one last thing I was thinking is, why not I take out Noxious Gearhulk (or at least sideboard it) and swap it for a Verdurous Gearhulk? What do you think about that? The main reason for Noxious Gearhulk was of course other Emrakul, the Promised End's previously. As of the moment I own (in paper), 2 copies of both Noxious Gearhulk and 2 Verdurous Gearhulk's and I'm wanting to in fact to still try using both, moving the noxious to the sideboard and a Verdurous or two, into the main deck.

Anyways thanks for the suggestion Didley.

January 16, 2017 12:36 p.m.

You mean instead of Grasp of Darkness? If so I will consider it. I'm still trying to figure out whether I use this new Abzan delirium deck in some form or just change up my g/b list.

January 16, 2017 9:06 a.m.

So I see your not using Noxious Gearhulk, I previously had one mainboard / 1 sideboard. However I recently acquired 2 Verdurous Gearhulks and so I might try those out in my g/b delirium deck too.

Said on Serve the Servos...


However why not add in 1x Marionette Master, as a backup win condition? You have plenty of ways to even kill your own things to hurt them from it.

January 15, 2017 noon

Said on Serve the Servos...


I like this approach, I had a Simic clue tokens version but I haven't worked on it for a while, however I will keep this particular version with servos in mind if I build something with Mechanized Production which I already have managed to get 2 of.

January 15, 2017 11:57 a.m.

My first two prereleases all I got was a promo Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and a Mechanized Production and then a Planar Bridge in a prize pack despite going 1-2, then the second prerelease I got a promo Aethersphere Harvester, and I went sadly 1-2 as my deck didn't turn out all that great, but I did manage to get a Disallow from a prize pack, the third prerelease I got a Verdurous Gearhulk,Dovin Baan, a second Mechanized Production, plus an Oath of Ajani, and another Aethersphere Harvester. I went 2-1 this time and just opened a Greenbelt Rampager and a Lifecrafter's Bestiary. I was hoping for a few Baral, Chief of Compliance's, Tezzeret the Schemer, or Ajani Unyielding's but I will just have too trade for those it seems.

I seen 4 masterpieces opened, a Sword of Feast and Famine at a 2pm prerelease, then someone else opened a Trinisphere at the midnight prerelease, followed by a Defense Grid and foil Fatal Push at a second prerelease later that day at 6pm! There was also a Steel Overseer at the 6pm event.

January 15, 2017 11:14 a.m.

Said on clayperce...


Wow a friend of mine at 3 of the prereleases he went too, got a Defense Grid, Trinisphere and a foil Fatal Push!

Although not as good, I still got 1x Verdurous Gearhulk, 1x Dovin Baan, 2x Mechanized Productions, a Disallow, 1x Planar Bridge, 1x Oath of Ajani, and a prerelease promo Aethersphere Harvester as well as a regular one.

January 14, 2017 10:21 p.m.

Said on Griximprovis...


Yeah I'm planning on doing a deck like this too, however I was not sure whether to go Grixis or Dimir colors. Dimir you can focus on just more artifacts.
