Hjaltrohir Control Freak

Hey guys, I'm Hjaltrohir...

I used to be way more active on the site as awesomeguy37, but I took a little hiatus, and am back again! Please ask if you need any help, my favourite formats are Modern and Commander.

A huge thank you to CommanderOfBolas for the upgrade, I couldn't have done it without him!

Shriekhorn seems really weak, only 4 cards over two turns. Yes it is a 1-drop but it isn't worth it. If the deck is to be truly competitive, then I would recommend replacing them with a playset of Snapcaster Mage. It allows you to flashback Glimpse the Unthinkable for pure value and mill. Also, why no Tome Scour?

My mill deck is here if you want to get some inspiration.

There is the Modern Format Primer

interesting. I would have thought that the cycling was very useful, even if the spell is slightly worse. Getting a dead card (i.e. Mana Leak or Censor) out of your hand late game is pretty good.

So the new card Censor, is it good enough to replace Mana Leak in my Grixis Delver list? Thanks

I always start with the dual lands in your colours;

3 Shocklands

3 ABUR duals (if your budget allows)

3 Checklands

3 Filterlands (also rather expensive)

3 Painlands (For more budget lists)3 Bounce lands

3 Gainlands

3 Temples

Then I have around 5 lands that add every colour;

City of Brass

Mana confluence

Command Tower

Reflecting Pool

Forbidden orchard

And then some utility/fetch lands;

Reliquary Tower

Rogue's Passage

Riptide Laboratory/Alchemist's refuge (for example)

Evolving wilds/Terramorphic Expanse/Myriad landscapes

Fetchlands

The remaining slots can go to basics, i try to run 2-4 of each colour (In a 3c deck) but this number can be weighted by your colour saturation. I run between 34-38 lands in total.

To stop yourself salvaging lands from other decks, if I own one copy of a card, I permit myself to create some proxies if I need it for multiple decks. Not perfect, but cheap ;)

'Good' is subjective, so more information is necessary, what colour/playstyle are you interested in? In general, The fewer colours you play, the cheaper you can go, as landbases can eat up a lot of the deck's budget.

Unfortunately this could never really become a sanctioned format. As Atony1400 said, the prices fluctuate so much that a card can be banned one day, and unbanned the next. Furthermore, prices are different in different stores, and since wizards doesn't set official card prices, it would be difficult to find a source everyone agrees on.

It is a great casual format, but it wouldn't work officially.

Pretty nice. She doesn't look too bad. These gods just don't excite me though, the way the Theros ones did.
