I started in 2015, I’m a blue player, and I love off-meta combo-control decks. I don’t play magic to win, in fact the actual playing of the game is in my opinion not what makes it fun. I find my passion in deck building. It’s amazing what you can do with 60 cards. Since I don’t have a huge budget, this is how I feed my passion. I hate playing template decks and I mainly go with my own brews. All the decks on my main profile are my favorite brain children that I’ve created (with help) over the past couple years.

These are all the decks that, as far as I know, are completely original

These are decks where I understood the basic idea and shell build behind them, and I added my own touch to them.

Thank you! I didn’t even think about Mission Briefing , and I will definitely add that in. As for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , that’s a really strong card rn, so I will definitely Test it out.

mattSeaLy my gifts ungiven deck is more of a variety deck than a competitive list; I was just trying to cram as many combos as I could find in there and have some fun. However, I have found that a deck of one-ofs is SUPER useful, unless there are specific cards that are the only cards that actually perform a specific task. Of course, a more competitive list would probably have less variety than mine, because I went a bit over the top, but it does do a lot for a toolbox deck. As to your second question, unfortunately I haven’t played in a very competitive meta, as I live in a small town and most people there play EDH and only maybe 3 people have modern decks.

Collected Company would be BS in this deck to search for the combo

Chord of Calling would also work for this

+1 Thoughtseize -1 funeral charm

Also: Ensnaring Bridge would be great in the mainboard as it counters most every other deck, but is pretty expensive

I love modern gifts, probably my favorite deck out there.

Firstly, a fun but not necessarily super good combo is giftsing for Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Nameless Inversion to wipe their board at instant speed as long as you have the mana available

Also: you need as many functionally identical cards as possible so you can force stuff through with gifts. This means it would probably be preferable to switch out 2 of your 3 mana leaks for other 2 cost counterspells like Negate and Remand. This lets you go for all three counterspells and a snapcaster in case you really want to counter something. Furthermore, I would reccomend varying your destroy spells; switch out an abrupt decay for an Assassin's Trophy, switch out a path for Dismember, etc

Also: I personally think Collective Brutality is a must, since it gains back all the life you lose from fetch-shocking and it lets you discard your reanimator targets. However, a lot of people disagree with me, so it might not be the best choice.

Finally: since you are playing cryptic command, maybe consider Eternal Witness so you can create a cryptic loop and stall a bit

I always love a good allies deck. I have but one suggestion: Ondu Cleric is really good and Kor Bladewhirl is just meh in every situation

If you pulled a goyf, you’ve gotta play it, I understand that (although I’ve never pulled one myself)

What I meant with the thalias was that you should either increase the number of them and go a more hate-aggro route or just switch them for full aggro cards. If you want to keep them in, if reccomend splitting heretic cathar 1 MB 1 SB while turning guardian of thraben into a 3-of

This looks really fun to play! I have a few suggestions. First off, it seems like you’re trying to do too much. Some of the cards would be much better suited for the sideboard, which would allow you to streamline the mainboard. These are Qasali Pridemage and loxodon smiter (although both of the thalias could also go in the SB as well). Also, 1-of tarmogoyf should either be increase to 2+ or taken out; just having one would decrease consistency in your deck. I think increasing the number of Bloodbraid Elf and Experiment One would do a lot for the deck. Finally, Lightning Helix would be good with 1-2 of them in the deck, helping you in the mirror or other aggro matchups.

Instead of four birds and two hierarch, I would go four hierarchs and two birds; hierarch is a multicolored permanent and birds is not, So hierarch buffs your hush blade and sure blade if you want to play those T2

Wow, thank you for commenting DragonFaceEater! This helps a lot. Definitely pact is going in the Sideboard, maybe even 1-2 in MB , and I agree with you on cutting one undoing for a mine. I really like Ideas Unbound, but it doesn’t really work with gideon, and we only have 3 sundials, so I don’t think I will add it just yet. I’ll play test with it in the slots of serum visions and see how it works. Finally, I don’t think I will include the other pacts since the main issue with having removal/interaction in the decks is that it would remove efficiency and consistency; I actually ran some Spell Pierces, Spell Snares, and Lightning Bolts originally, but has to cut them for cantrips. I do think pact of negation is good enough that it’s worth sacrificing some consistency for 1-2 of them. What do you reccomend I take out for them, if I should put them in MB?

I think switch Karn, Scion of Urza for another Karn Liberated; scion doesn’t provide as much of a threat and his ult doesn’t do much in this deck, and also it’s probably always better to stick a 7-drop on T3 than a four-drop

Other than that, looks really good

Everything looks good except maybe the enchantments. They are kinda out of place, and it would probably be better to just have something like Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker in there for even more aggro

Also Lightning Helix is a pretty cool card

As for the sideboard:

1: Deflecting Palm Ian a seriously underrated budget Sideboard Card, 10/10 highly reccomend

2: You probably want a sweeper like Pyroclasm, Volcanic Fallout, or Anger of the Gods. These three are each good in a different meta

3: I’ve seen went Wear / Tear played a lot in these decks for affinity and Bogles matchups

4: Mirran Crusader is hella good against jund, but doesn’t do much else in other matchups

5: I don’t know dont know what your budget is but Stony Silence would help out a lot against KCI and affinity

6: Abrade is a pretty versatile card

7: for whatever reason, Refraction Trap seems to be getting a lot of play right now as an answer to other aggro decks

I think maybe you should keep anguished unmaking in the mainboard (lets be honest is pretty good) but switch the thougbtseizes for Duress

would Assault Strobe be a better choice than Temur Battle Rage? is trample important in this deck? also Slip Through Space could be good possibly instead of opt

Also you might wanna play one or two Liliana of the Veil because of its versatility as either Raven's Crime or a destroy spell and also you can use it to discard elesh if your stuck with her in hand

Also I’ve seen Snapcaster Mage and three counterspells gifts piles that work pretty well

Also I really like bring to light but if you are usually going to go for gifts maybe Merchant Scroll would be better but then again BTL is probably the most versatile card in modern
