Said on Ooze Theme deck ......

#1

Mutavault and Metallic Mimic were to first two cards that came to mind.

Is Spawnwrithe an ooze? If not it at least looks like one.

So, this deck was actually put together for my girlfriend... it started off as tribal vampire but it was just too slow. The mana base is relatively similar and I had all the white lands on hand (except the Mesa).

It was most of her Christmas / our anniversary gift. Most expensive gift ever lol.

I'll definitely keep you updated on the performance of the deck though! I played esper mentor a while back so that helped give this inspiration.

In regards to me, I generally play control. I played jeskai control for a long time, but now my deck is blue moon. Been running that for a few months now and I love it. Tonight though, I'll be running eldrazi and taxes to change things up a little. I play mainly paper, but I do pauper on mtgo. Too expensive to rebuy decks for modern :(

Lol, I never even thought about Dusk / Dawn. If I swap for a Mesa I would have to do a few things....

  1. Buy a fourth Mesa (not fun)

And...

  1. Lower the efficiency of the other fetches since it can be caught by any of the fetches, plus that goes up to 9 fetch land and the deck hurts itself enough already.

Good call on sweeper though!!!

Push is going to be in mind as I test the deck out... helix has to stay in the deck as at least 3 as a way to slow the bleeding from Bob so I can't really take that out easily, plus, burn is the secondary win con. I don't exactly remember what my local meta is like, but when I'm back in the store I'll keep an eye out to see if push will be better than terminate.

I'm also interested in your opinion on sweepers in the side board... I'm debating if it is worth adding 2 Wrath of God or 2 Anger of the Gods. All board wipes (with the exception of Pyroclasm since prowess) will kill everything I play. I'd love to put in Pyroclasm for that reason, but unfortunately it doesn't kill much these days.

Hey! Thanks for checking the list out, for the record I love push and think it belongs in the 75, however, I don't know what to take out for it. Path is path, I can't pull that. Terminate is such a good card you just can't go wrong with it and it is a catch all answer for those pesky tasigur running around.

I had Murderous Cut in the initial list and man that card over performed for what I needed... but it's conditional at times which is why I cut that.

Another problem I had while trying to find a spot for push was just how much removal there is. 4 Path to Exile, 4 Lightning Bolt, 3 Lightning Helix and the 2 Terminate makes for 13 removal spells... then add on Collective Brutality every now and then plus all the discard it almost feels overwhelming to add even more in.

In short, I love Fatal Push and I do think it belongs in the deck, I just don't know how to get it in here!
