Grubbernaut Deckling

KINGofORESKOS says... #1

Hi there! I have these 2 Modern decks and 1 article made into a deck. I was wondering if you could look at these for me, maybe give some suggestions (or an upvote hehe), as I am really pushing to get all three decks into the top 20. Here are the Modern decks: Extreme Ramp and Punny Cat Tribal. My article/deck is this one. All suggestions and upvotes are appreciated, as they make the deck better and give it a higher ranking. Thanks, KINGofORESKOS

Looks fun! For my taste, I'd probably sub Negate out for Memory Lapse or maybe Rune Snag, but I dig the build.

Good call.

Also, just a heads up, Desert is not Pauper legal, assuming you're using standard MTGO legality. Quicksand is a decent replacement, depending on your meta.

Syphon Life might be a touch better than Alms of the Vein for SB, since it's reusable and you need less lands against burn, anyway

58 card mainboard... 12 card SB... no Delver.

When is this better than the go-wide build with Distant Melody?

Gonna be playing at LGS tonight. May meta-in a Syphon Life into the sideboard if the guy playing turbo fog is there, since it's such a good wincon against him.

I'm short one Fatal Blow, so subbing in a third Doom Blade unless I can snag a Geth's Verdict.

If that's more your speed, take a look at my punishing jund list. It'll suit you.

Gotcha. Seems like they're all moving to official legality around here, and at the GPs, etc

Makes sense. But, with only 2 of them, not going to happen reliably. If you decide to keep the Crop Rots, I'd suggest shuffling the build to run 4 of them for that reason. Otherwise, it's a totally dead card mid/late game

I'd recommend Evolution Charm over Crop Rot... it's just so, so versatile. Give your fatties flying, or get them back if they're dead, or mana fix.

Julius_Mufasa As someone regularly on the receiving end of Elf beatdowns, I can safely say Birchlore is sufficient. It's most important late game, where you're most likely to have drawn one, anyway.

Temur Battle Rage is so good. Giving trample to a Fiend or Souleater is a game-winner half the time

Sinkhole is not pauper legal, just a heads up my dude.

Said on Mono Red Stax ......


That's not how Inflame works. The card deals damage to creatures that have been dealt damage, not creatures that have dealt damage. It doesn't say "each creature that dealt damage," it says "each creature dealt damage."

4x Chainer's Edict seems like a must, over a split with mostly Diabolic.

If you move Bojuka Bog to the main, you free up some SB slots. Or, if you use Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus, you've got a more reliable yard-killer that you don't necessary have to play early if you draw it, like you do for the Bogs.

Also: Lone Missionary is still an all-star. In this build, I might consider it over Blood Seeker.

Finally, Palace Sentinels or Thorn of the Black Rose will keep you fully stocked, and would be right at home in this deck.

Sweet brew! Cheers!

Entomo The reason Apostle's Blessing is generally played over Spider Umbra is because it can deal with bounce effects from blue decks, Journey to Nowhere, Oubliette, but most importantly, it can make your creature unblockable, which is a significant thing when you want to wedge in for poison.

If you're not using actual pauper legality, it's a good idea to state that in your header or description.

I recommend Penumbra Spider over Sentinel Spider for resilience

Evincar's Justice might be better than Fade Away, since elves can deal so well with Fade by producing a gorillion mana. Also reusable, late game

Sign in Blood is better in the main; Cremate provides only marginal advantage, even against Gurmag Angler decks. One less card to delve is generally a non-issue, and it only replaces itself -- no card advantage. Conversely, Sign nets you a card, and it can be used to burn the opponent. As someone who plays paper pauper weekly, I've lost games and seen other people lose games to that same strat. The life loss is also much less meaningful for an aggro deck, and two life for two cards is a good exchange rate.

If you want graveyard hate that draws, Nihil Spellbomb is where it's at, which you've got in your SB. Relic of Progenitus is better if you're not playing Chainer's Edict, tho; can incrementally reduce their yard without having to pay the nuke cost. Less commitment/lower variance card. In either case, they should definitely stay in the SB
