Kezvin Deckling

Ever since I started playing, which was right after the release of BNG in early 2014, I've been homebrewing, deckbuilding, dreaming up list after list after creative list after fun list, trying to create competitive Standard, Modern, and Frontier decks based on the most unlikely, unused cards and themes. Of course, I love brewing me up some meta mainstays as well, but even then, the list is my own.

My favorite Standard deck ever was a Bant Planeswalkers list I brewed up back in THS-KTK Standard, my favorite Modern deck ever was 2013's famous Jeskai Control, or possibly the other 2013 deck, Aura Hexproof. My favorite Frontier deck is my Demonic Pact Control. My favorite Vintage deck is either Dredge or Cobra/Gush Storm.

My 5 Favorite Cards:

  1. Ancestral Recall

  2. Yawgmoth's Bargain

  3. Fastbond

  4. Swords to Plowshares

  5. Timetwister

The best color in the pie is Blue, followed by White, then Black, then Red, then Green. Don't get me wrong, I still love Green, it's just that Blue is better =) Best two-color combination is UW or UR, best 3-color is Grixis, Jeskai, or Esper.

Winding Constrictor, Walking Ballista, Hangarback Walker, Solidarity of Heroes, and Abzan Falconer all seem like they'd work well in this deck.

I know that Path has more targets, but I'd suggest replacing them with Push. Push denies your opponent any kind of upside, plus it triggers Blood Artist whereas Path doesn't.

GodCyphus If you want to build a reanimator list, I'd recommend, even though they are quite expensive, Griselbrand, Goryo's Vengeance, and Through the Breach. These spells are much better than Beacon of Unrest. If those are outside your price range, then I'd say stick with this list, but get rid of Fervor and Mass Hysteria and replace them with some combinations of Fatal Push, Terminate, Lightning Bolt, and Damnation. These will keep your life total relatively safe and allow you to interact with the board until you can play Beacon of Unrest.

If budget is not an issue, I'd suggest you look up lists for Grishoalbrand and Grixis Breach. These lists are similar to yours, but they are established competitive list. Alternatively, Living End is also a non-budget reanimator option, albeit a different kind of reanimator.

Beacon of Unrest is WAAAAAY too expensive to be competitive in Modern. By the time you cast it, assuming you've both found your Twin AND put it in the yard, which is unlikely, you've probably already lost because your deck has literally no way at all to interact with the board. I have some advice for you that I give to almost every player who posts a Modern list like this:

If this is your first foray into Modern, don't brew. You don't know the format. You don't know the meta. You don't understand all the interactions and all the decks and all the little nuances of the different matchups. You're better off finding and learning an established meta list. If you're on a budget, there are much better budget options.

If this is not your first foray into Modern, then you know that this is not good enough to win.

If you're a new player, Modern is NOT THE RIGHT FORMAT FOR YOU. It's too fast, too competitive, too expensive, and too complicated. I personally would recommend casual play until you have a firm grasp of the rules, then start with Standard. Don't play Modern until you're confident that you can play it well.

Also, some advice, learn the deck names. I saw the word "burn" and the BR colors and expected Lightning Bolt, Goblin Guide, and Bump in the Night. Nothing about this deck has anything to do with burn.

Bitterblossom, Nameless Inversion, Eyeblight's need something to put Tribal into the yard.
