I would love to see someone finally make Krosan Cloudscraper work in a deck. Sadly, I'm skeptical to its effectiveness as a blink target.

What's your opinion on Crystal Shard ? You can target your own creatures and decline to pay (so you get them back i), or use it on the opponent's creatures to annoy them.

Against noncreature decks, maybe Alhammarret, High Arbiter would work.

ZendikariWol That's a pretty good list, so, I'll offer my predictions:
For story reasons, I think they're going to kill all the non-Jace planeswalkers that got a "triumph" card. The flavor text of all of them (except Jace) implies they didn't get the victory they wanted. So, they're all dead, and I think they will be replaced by the uncommon planeswalkers of their colors (except Jace, will be promoted to super-god, and will be something more powerful than a planeswalker, so Kamina can take his place).
There's no way Gideon is being replaced by Teyo. He'd be replaced by The Wanderer, because Teyo isn't diverse enough. The Wanderer will be given an identity, and nobody will care.
I would love to see Jaya become the next red planeswalker, but I think you're right: she won't survive. It seems like she's depicted as a wise old woman, with the "other red sources deal +2 damage" as if she's mentoring them. I like that, but it's an indication she's dead but her knowledge will live on.
The WUBRG planeswalker lineup after: The Wanderer, Kasmina, Davriel, Tibalt, Vivien.

ZendikariWol That is true, but how many of them do you expect to see again?

Just remember to play the Inverter first, so it resolves last.

I thought about doing something like that before, with Stony Silence , Mycosynth Lattice and Ghostly Prison to stop the opponent from using the creatures they had on the battlefield, and wait them out with Darksteel Reactor because Stony Silence completely locks everyone (except, cards with Convoke can be cast, if the entire cost can be Convoked, and Simian Spirit Guide still works).
Anyway...the problem I see, is that on their turn, if they still have creatures, they will attack Karn, and I think there's a very real possibility they will break the lock if you don't have an answer to their creatures.

Apparently, some new cards give zombie creature tokens abilities.
That could be interesting, but it still seems like Pacifism is the worst thing that could ever happen to your zombie army.

I saw the card Spark Double , and I knew immediately how Bolas was going to be defeated: Bolas is going to steal everyone's sparks, and it looks like he has won, but it turns out Jace had two sparks! As Bolas is doing his victory dance, Jace, the only other planeswalker, will single-handedly defeat him with the element of surprise.

I always thought there would be potential for Gonti's Machinations in a modern Energy deck, since you could control the life loss and energy with shocklands on your turn, and fetchlands on the opponent's turn. Along with Thoughtseize , Street Wraith , you could consistently generate energy on both your turn and the opponent's turn.

These days, I think white is the color to make tokens. If you did, you would have access to vampire creature tokens with Call to the Feast , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Queen's Commission and many others, also, cards like Stensia Banquet , Feast of Blood , Urge to Feed that want lots of tokens for maximum value.

I wasn't even trying to say "this should be a Torment of Scarabs deck, because it's better," what I was trying to say was: "look at how bad Torment of Scarabs is, and realize that Mogis, God of Slaughter is worse than that."
April 11, 2019 12:30 p.m.
- Unlike Mogis, it is nonlegendary, so extra copies still work.
- They lose 3 life instead of 2.
- It is not limited to just creatures.
- The sacrifice/discard is not optional.
That last one is the most important, because the opponent won't be able to choose to take the damage while they have cards in hand or nonland permanents on the battlefield. This is relevant because Death's Shadow and any deck that can keep a creature larger than a 2/2 on the battlefield would win the race by choosing to take damage every time.
As an enchantment, Mogis just doesn't impact the battlefield nearly enough.
