Zaueski Master Brewer

I'm an avid control player and I usually don't play creatures or green cards. I play in the Columbus, OH area or online.

My current main deck for Modern is Lantern Control (Primer)

Seething Song is banned, thank goodness so it doesn't even work anyways. That can be circumvented but not as easily. The power necessary to speed out a T1 hasted Blightsteel Colossus is immense, that restricts the deck build so much that it practically builds itself. Also, Shane is right. You want 4 Pact of the Titan over any of the free artifacts because 1 copy will not guarantee you'll get a copy in your opening hand. Really you need all 8 but we'll have to settle for 4 copies. Simian Spirit Guide, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, and Infernal Plunge will make up our mana acceleration suite.

So...

4x Blightsteel Colossus

4x Madcap Experiment

4x Pact of the Titan

4x Simian Spirit Guide

4x Pyretic Ritual

4x Desperate Ritual

4x Infernal Plunge

4x Expedite

4x Crimson Wisps

5-6x Flex Slots for interaction

18-19x Mountain or Snow-Covered Mountain (Run the Snow ones if you think Skred is better than Lightning Bolt for the deck)


An argument can also be made to include fetches as well. Deck thinning can be really important when you want to dig for Madcap Experiment but it also means you get one card less that isn't a Blightsteel Colossus. I'm unsure of how the math would turn out as to which road is better.

There you have it. This deck does nothing else so you want to win as fast as possible. It'll be fun when it goes off but otherwise expect to do nothing a lot.

LabManiac_Dan: So I'm curious about Mairsil, I didn't think he'd make the cut but surely he's at least worth talking about and explaining why he isn't as optimal as some of the others. Also no Ramos Door love? :P

I went 0-2 drop, my shop was filled with so much aggro and I managed to pair up against none of them.

This is my build of choice. It seems really well positioned against the field amd especially good against Ramunap Red

Chandra, Torch of Defiance has been on an upward tick for a while now, part of it is standard hype but she's seeing more and more eternal play $30-$40 seems about right for her so if it goes beyond that I'd sell but for right now she seems about right, as for the invention I dont see its price moving much so sell or don't.
