NobodyPicksBulbasaur King of Games

I've been playing Magic on and off for a number of years now. I got back into it right before M12 came out. I like playing standard because I like the pay-as-you-go approach, as opposed to dropping hundreds of dollars at once on a legacy deck. It also forces me to keep making and playing new decks, which is half the fun.

I did recently drop my collection to pick up a legacy deck, and I've been having lots of fun with it. The people at my LGS help me tweak it, and it's been smooth sailing.

I also love playing in limited formats and EDH, because they turn deck making into a skill, and forces creative play choices.

I've decided that I want to build a Modern deck on MtGO, but I don't want to half-ass it. If i'm going to make the investment, I want the deck to be both fun and successful.

I settled on Temur Delver as a starting point because I like the idea of beating face while interacting with my opponents' plays.

Does this list look like it can compete in the current Modern metagame?

Try

"Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, it gains persist until end of turn. If that creature didn't enter the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter on it, destroy it."

I can't think of a way to template the second ability at the moment, and I don't have enough time to think on it.

Well it kills all creatures that enter the battlefield, under anyone's control.

So what ends up happening is that any creature that gets played immediately dies, comes back, then dies, then comes back, then dies...

It doesn't matter that your opponent gains control of it, it's still gonna make a loop.

Also, the second ability doesn't specify where the creature is entering the graveyard from. As written, milling a card could also start the loop.

The big threats in Modern right now, creature-wise are Tarmogoyf, Siege Rhino, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, and Deceiver Exarch.

Of those, Mortars only kills Tarmogoyf (sometimes). It's strong enough to kill an exarch, but not fast enough.

Just exile them face down with a clause that says that you can cast them. Easy-peasy.

See Praetor's Grasp.

If it happens it will be after at least a couple more sets come out. Wizards won't reprint Ugin while he's still a driving force behind the sale of FRF packs.

Consider how long it took to make Kiora vs Elspeth. Probably about that long for UvB.

I like it when control is a hard archetype to build. It was too dumb and easy when everything was Sphinx's Revelation and Supreme Verdict.
