That would still be yeago, I do not think anything has changed. I think the system needs a bit more transperancy on how it happens. Like a post in the writer's forum or something.

Hi berryjon, sorry for getting back so late. I am still unfortunately not the one that is publishing articles...

TheRedGoat: Sire Of Insanity is a case of a card enabling the Hellbent mechanic for 's Guild. It was not meant to act as a control, but does have it as a happy side effect.

Wit's End is definitely control, but I wouldn't classify it as a 'wipe' as drawing cards is manifestly easier than recovering from a set back board position.

Said on Field to Plowshares...


Just remember, before you toss in Culling the Weak, is that it is mana ramp still need a place to go. I hope you have a plan for that .

Tyrant-Thanatos: When you cast it during your end step after your blue opponent has tapped out to do all their 'end of the previous player's turn' stuff. That's why it was an instant.

Then Wizards saw no one playing it like that, and it went back to being a sorcery.

XXXPPTT Put it in a deck! I can add it to the PR Deck Folder when you do!

Also, I couldn't help but notice that your deck contained 21 non-lands. This deck is 100% lands, and I can't change that due to the theme of the article and deck.

Firespit Kavu

Creature - Kavu
If it is your turn, Firespit Kavu gains Trample.
If it is not your turn, Firespit Kavu gains ": Hunting Kavu gets +1/+0 until the end of the turn."

More! Except one of the colors has to be .

HezTheGod: Nice suggestion, but the Urzatron isn't a win condition. It's simply there to feed the Factory or pay for other activation costs on cards. And I would need to figure out what source of Blue I could use that would be useful for this deck.

January 18, 2017 3:42 p.m.

Raging Mob

Creature - Human Citizen
While it is your turn, Raging Mob gains Vigilance.
While it is not your turn, Raging Mob gains Deathtouch.
"Protect our homes! ATTACK!"

Another one like this, enemy colours please.

I took a second look at your deck, and came up with a couple suggestions:

Evolution Vat is something I would consider for the sideboard in case the game state stalls out. Reliable, repeating source of more +1/+1 counters.

Novijen, Heart of Progress is a suggestion for a similar reason. Giving out more counters to everything!

Plaxcaster Frogling is something you may want to consider if you're also worried about targetted removal.

excaliber213: That was already in the maybe board, as an alternative to Dread Statuary.

Braids, Cabal Cleric

Legendary Creature - Human Cleric
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, they gain life equal to the highest toughness among creatures they control.
Having learned of the teachings of Orim and Samite philosophy, Braids was sent on a far different path.

Erastaroth_The_Duchess_of_Hell: Not a Land, needs 7 plains (which I don't have room for), needs 5 mountains (which I don't have room for), and not a land.

January 16, 2017 2:49 p.m.

killroy726: I'll consider it, but I don't know how I'll separate it out from the one I have planned for mana fixing. Let me ponder it.

January 15, 2017 8:34 p.m.

Fellfoot, the Fleet

Legendary Creature - Giant Coward
If Fellfoot, the Fleet is assigned to block a creature, you may prevent all damage Fellfoot, the Fleet would receive and deal. If you do, the attacking player may deal damage equal to the blocked creature's power to another creature you control that isn't assigned as a blocker.
By leaving the battlefield behind, Fellfoot left his allies open to attacks from the side. Many were lost that day.

Another Coward - or a Warrior that has an ability that is applied to Cowards.

January 15, 2017 6:33 p.m.

Temple of the Dragon-God
Legendary Land
When Temple of the Dragon-God enters the battlefield, reveal a God or a Bolas Planeswalker from your hand. If you do not, Temple of the Dragon-God enters the battlefield tapped, and you lose 3 life.
: Add or or to your mana pool.

Make a board wipe of some stripe that isn't a functional reprint.

Sir, what is the policy for dealing with trolls and people who make personal attacks on other members?

Trial by Water

Enchantment - Aura
Cumulative Upkeep - Draw a Card
Enchanted Creature becomes a Blue 1/1 Illusion creature with Shroud and cannot be blocked. (This does not cause this card to be discarded)
Whenever enchanted creature deals combat damage, you may place that many cards on top of your library in any order.
Your maximum hand size is reduced to 0.

Trial by Light for White, or Trial by Darkness for Black?

January 14, 2017 11:22 p.m.

So, the deck got rebuilt from the ground up - pun intended. It's now all lands, all the time!

I just with Dark Depths was Modern legal. Oh well.
