That's true for Sunbond, but Cradle of Vitality is not an aura--it won't be removed.

I know it's incredibly bad by today's standards, but Mogg Fanatic might be a suitable replacement for Spark Elemental to stay on theme.

I figure with a Goblin Piledriver in play, you're breaking even compared to the elemental.

Cradle of Vitality would be insane here.

Sunbond, too.

Also, Well of Lost Dreams.

this.

Chalice of the Void would be a great inclusion, if your budget could stand it.

What about Sundial of the Infinite as a sideboard card against other decks that want to play things on your turn?

Random thought: suppose I have 6 Eldrazi Spawn, and 3 Forest. Can I tap all of them, and sac all of them, to find a It That Betrays with my Chord of Calling?

Also, what about Vengeful Rebirth for the insane damage it can do to an opponent?

October 20, 2017 12:40 a.m.

I'd like to point out that the color of To Arms! and Silence are irrelevant: you'll imprint them on Isochron Scepter, and pay no matter their printed cost. Or, you'll tap a Birds of Paradise to cast it.

It occurs to me that Remand is probably the best 2-mana counter you could imprint, if you wanted to go all-in on Isochron.

When I recommended Spell Pierce I wasn't expecting you to ever imprint Mana Leak on a Scepter, since you need scepter as a combo piece.

I think it's insane how allergic they are to reusing mechanics.

Kaladesh would have been an interesting place to reprint proliferate, because this time, it would be about giving ourselves Energy, and not giving the opponent Poison.

Ahmonket would have been an interesting place to reprint Bridge from Below-type mechanics, or populate. It was a whole set filled with cards intended to work differently when in the graveyard; these wouldn't be so out of place, especially when Mr. Bolas was building an army of zombies--even populate wouldn't be a flavor fail.

Ixalan would have been the perfect place to reprint gold tokens from Theros. Unless their internal testing showed that Improvise was too strong with Gold tokens, this decision is indefensible. The most common argument against gold tokens is: "hurr hurr, treasure is more flavorful". This argument actually loses to the rebuttal "they're looking for a lost city of gold. get fukt".

Anyway...Wizards is an idiot about reusing things. Even Returning to Zendikar, you're unlikely to see quests and traps.

What's your opinion on Nameless Inversion?

I can kill most of the same things Lightning Bolt can kill. It's more expensive, but Undead Warchief makes it cheaper, and Lord of the Undead can pull it back from the graveyard to your hand, and Diregraf Colossus will recognize it as a zombie spell. I guess in a pinch, it can be used to pump one of your dudes.

October 19, 2017 10:33 p.m.

What's your opinion on To Arms!? You just imprint it on a scepter, cast it with your dorks, and keep casting it until you find the combo pieces you need. If you do, could Cathartic Adept be a backup plan?

Your deck doesn't seem have any good way to deal with the Pithing Needles your opponents will inevitably sideboard in against you. Would Deconstruct make a good sideboard card to counter their sideboard?

Since you have Fog Bank, I'd vote for Spell Pierce over Mana Leak, since you're probably more scared of noncreature spells than creatures.

Swap out Honored Crop-Captain for Akroan Hoplite to keep the soldier theme.

Maybe find some space for Veteran Swordsmith?

What about one or two Timely Reinforcements for sideboard?

Ghostly Prison is a modern staple for preventing opponent attacks.

I can't think of very many good ways in modern to get enough mana to extort. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be the best way to create tons of mana for use in extorting. Things like Whitemane Lion with Oketra's Monument can give plenty of extortion triggers. In black, the options are much more limited, since Bontu's Monument isn't as good, but Sedraxis Alchemist looks like the only one that can bounce off the battlefield. Two Pit Keeper or Cadaver Imp can do it if you have a a sacrifice outlet on hand to keep the graveyard going. Relying on the graveyard in modern is dangerous.

Maybe Extraplanar Lens, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Nirkana Revenant can help produce mana for extortion?

I don't know, I'm just trying to think of the best way to extort.

In your colors, Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile, Lightning Helix.

I think Lightning Helix is probably the most interesting, since if you can get a higher life total than the opponent, then Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner or Spitemare + Volcano Hellion = win, even without the Pariah.

Since Boros reckoner and Furnace of Rath are high in devotion, why not try going with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx?

What about Fieldmist Borderpost?

You can think of them as land that enters the battlefield tapped, but their upside is that they count as a white permanent for View from Above.

The downside is that it's an artifact, but in modern, most of the artifact destruction I see is in the sideboard, and a few borderposts usually aren't worth boarding in.

It is worth considering.

Dragon Tempest + Arcane Adaptation + Raptor Hatchling + Darksteel Plate = put an infinite number of 3/3's into play, and then deal damage to an opponent equal to the number of creatures you control

Just a random thought.

Swap out Holy Day for Ethereal Haze so you can stop creatures from dealing noncombat damage to you.

You probably don't need Abrade. Swap it out for Spite of Mogis maybe?

October 17, 2017 1:21 p.m.

Here's some ideas:

Disciple of the Vault and Marionette Master don't mind sacrificing treasure.

If an opponent has a poison counter, Throne of Geth can proliferate them to death. Throw in some planeswalkers for bonus points proliferating loyalty. Are there any energy cards worth proliferating?

Dovescape with Revel in Riches is almost a combo. I think Pestilence Demon would help? Or would a Enduring Ideal shell work better, since you can fetch Trove of Temptation and slowly win?

What about self-giving creatures like Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse? They give the opponent the incentive to kill their own critter, so we don't have to waste removal on it.

Sending a Jinxed Idol to the opponent would encourage them to sacrifice their own critters to prevent the damage, but speed up the Treasure clock. Seems like it would be too casual.
