Dorotheus 5-Color Deckromancer


[Facebook] [Twitter] [Geek Fortress Stream]








Hello, I am Dorotheus [Dor-oh-thee-is], or Doro for short. I've always been into card games, and have a rich history in game design experiences. I started playing Magic in 9th Edition, but it took a while to get into a stronger understanding of the game. I'd say that when Return to Ravnica came out was my first real competitive start in the game. The internet has since EXPLODED with MTG and really allowed it to take on new heights, it's made trading, playing, and understanding the game easier and more tangible.

I am a 5-color mage, Johnny and a Combo player above all. I pride through interactions, and ways to chain cards into others. I am more about having the deck built and playing it, more than I am with winning with it. But like anyone else, I do want to win. My understanding of modern and EDH are exceptionally strong, and if there are decks I haven't seen, I want to see them and understand them.

I brew a lot and often, but I do not get to play many of my brews and I look for others to adopt my modern lists if I think the deck is worthy enough.

Just need answers for Enchantment AND Artifact hate in the same card or ways to tempo those cards, probably Echoing Truth. I've been looking at Nimble Obstructionist and always have had Trickbind around for Relic of Progenitus and the etb of Rest in Peace, but as I usually don't play hard in blue or green I resort to letting them hit my yard, and just trying to resolve a Through the Breach (clearly that won't work), but maybe it'll give you other ideas for alternate ways to get your fatties into play.

Right now I'm testing Spirit Soul Bomb which goes even deeper on graveyard, maybe in an attempt to just get under the hate, early Obzedat, Ghost Council can do that sometimes alone, but I think Spell Quellers and Mausoleum Wanderers can still be a right pain in the ass.

Have you kept up with or seen how the meta is right now? There's a LOT of control decks with 3-4x Field of Ruin and 1-2x Ghost Quarter, there's also been a lot more graveyard and storm hate from sideboards because of Bridge from Below decks.

This looks more like you're wanting to build a Pyromancer Ascension list than a burn one (play 4), I'd immediately replace Ordeal, Chandra, and Simian Spirit Guide with Burst Lightning, Faithless Looting, and Manamorphose. Hopefully that helps you with the style you're going for.

If there is one card you MUST have over any, it's Alhammarret's Archive. It's just soo good.
