OpenFire_V2 Deckling

Hello there! Longtime user of the site under another account (OpenFire) but have been inactive for a while. Once I got up to Top 50 in activity back then, but have barely posted here since then. I play Commander and Modern, mostly.

Yeah, there are a lot of broken cards for cheap you can get. I would recommend against playing Kraken Hatchling and Fog Bank because why spend mana on not dying (and cards that only protect a little against not dying) when you could just play some Dark Ritual and Lotus Petal and go off on turn 1. I also have a folder with a bunch of similar power decks which I added this deck too so maybe you could get some inspiration from that

Needs Ponder, Daze, probably Brainstorm

Vineshaper Mystic certainly should be in here over some Jade Bearers and Riverwise Augurs. I would definitely cut Ipnu Rivulet as well

Here's an initial potential cutlist of cards I don't think synergize well with your goal, or have direct better upgrades: Elgaud Shieldmate Essence Warden Phantom Nantuko Phytohydra Fade into Antiquity Mouth / Feed Revoke Existence Lifecrafter's Gift Frozen AEther Primal Rage Lightmine Field Azorius Keyrune Obelisk of Bant Selesnya Keyrune. There are some others I'm not sure on but those will have to be chosen on based on what direction you choose to go with this.

Possibly look at making new, powered down decks. You can keep the old ones and maybe break them out sometimes, but you could run something like a Sealed league with your friend group, or just try more limited in general. Sad to have someone who got you into the game lose interest, I've had that happen to me with my friend, but I ended up branching off and becoming more competitive anyways.

Orzhov Death's Shadow hasn't been the best way to build the archetype since 2015, so no.

I would definitely recommend Voyaging Satyr over Sakura-Tribe Elder in a deck with so many land enchantments. Any reason for no Overgrowth?

I would strongly recommend playing Serum Visions over your Contingency Plan. Looks like a neat deck, +1

January 10, 2018 5:22 p.m.

Cranial Plating is out of your color identity. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are not cards you want to play in Mono-W, for sure. Maybe consider a few auras like Hyena Umbra, Spirit Mantle, Spirit Loop as they are cheap and offer good options your equipments can't cover. Open the Vaults and Second Sunrise are good recovery tools.

Interesting. IMO you should add some more control elements, maybe the 4th Rebuke and Opt and Censor. I think Kefnet's Monument isn't very good because you don't have that many creatures, I think

Shadows over Innistrad isn't Standard legal any more, so I'd recommend looking for replacements.

For speed I would recommend getting your hands on more cheap ramp. Sol Ring (obviously), the other signets. For performance mostly I would try to identify the cards that don't do enough or don't fit with the plan of the deck and looking for cheap replacements. Select for Inspection or Spiteful Motives are examples of each. Some sorts of cards I'd recommend looking at are more board wipes and more counterspells, especially "hard" ones like Counterspell itself. Mostly you should be trying to exchange conditional cards for better value ones.

I would recommend cutting Canyon Slough for Mountains. I know the cycling's good but in an aggressive deck like this you really want the untapped lands. Also Rift Bolt is another powerful burn spell that is pretty cheap. I like the concept.

January 9, 2018 11:36 p.m.

I think you need more actual token producers. So far you have Voice (conditional), Ajani (conditional), Charm (conditional), Advent (expensive), and Grove (extremely expensive and should probably be cut). Spectral Procession, seconding Blade Splicer, potentially Legion's Landing  Flip or even Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. To cut I'd look at your 4 drops, they are quite slow at times. I used to play a similar deck in Standard.

January 9, 2018 11:33 p.m.

No Notion Thief? seems like an auto include. I'd also cut Courier completely as well as your red mana and fit in a basic island and swamp. Also maybe take a look at stuff like Windfall as it can also easily empty out your opponent's hands

January 9, 2018 11:31 p.m.

Agree with the above except I think Lim-Dul's can stay and I'd take out another land instead. Ghalta, Sultai Charm, and Journey to Eternity I think are also mediocre but I assume you're testing them out. Lord of Extinction and Sutured Ghoul are the other big fatties which you could look at.

January 9, 2018 11:20 p.m.

I would be very surprised if they didn't mean Sage + Ezuri, it's the easiest one in Animar colors to pull off by far. Inalla + Prophets is the other one I see talked about, but it requires black.

I don't think Exquisite Blood is very good without a combo because you'll have killed your opponents before the life matters. I would also replace the Dismal Backwater with more basics. Why not 4 Whispering Madness? I think it's your best card.

I would strongly recommend fast mana and a better sort of Doomsday Pile. Predict, Laboratory Maniac, Gitaxian Probe, Unearth, Gush is a classic one and cheap. Dark Ritual, Lotus Petal, and Cabal Ritual are all required because they let you win so much quicker. Also strongly consider Ponder. To cut I would say 3 of your lab maniacs (only need 1) and a lot of your instants because they don't really serve a purpose. You have no infinite mana combo for Blue Sun's or Pull. Also you have far more lands than you need, go down to probably 18.
