majin_shinsa Deckling

I started with Ice age and played until the Invasion Block. Was burnt out so I quit (for Yu Gi Oh) and came back for a little bit during Champions/Ravnica. Quit again due to work and came back a 3rd time when Kaladesh was released.

Would Unclaimed Territory fit in the budget? Becomes dorks 9-12 and let's you play something else turn 2

If you have the card or the money, Metallic Mimic with token generation is great. Also Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle helps with making tokens. But making larger tokens with Mimic can get really fun. I would suggest cutting a Bishop or two though since they have a pretty high casting cost and add some removal, either something like Cast Out Ixalan's Binding or Fatal Push Walk the Plank

Made some major changes based on how the deck played.

Since the Artifact lands are gone, you can always use the 0 casting cost equipment to fill the hole along with citadel for some more redundancy.

You shouldn't run the cycle land since you need to start ripping turn 1. Other than that I love me some discard decks (I play 8 rack in modern)

Said on 8 rack...


Alt win condition:

4x Mutavault

4x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (so that you can tap mutavaults and fetches for mana)

Main win condition:

4x The Rack

4x Shrieking Affliction

Getting rid of the afflictions is a terrible idea. You need all 8 rack effects to win the game and Quest for the Nihil Stone is a terrible top deck. If they know you have that, they will not keep anything in hand to let you trigger it. Also, why Liliana Vess over the best version of Liliana? She can discard, kill things and her ultimate is a game swinger so you should run 4x if possible. I agree with Fatal Push and removing the -x/-x spells. Bontu's Last Reckoning is a great sweeper and fits in our curve of under 3. If you want to run smallpox, up the land count to at least 23. Fetches allow you to get revolt when needed but give you the option for the white splash sideboard if you choose to later (its what I run).

Here is my deck that I have been tuning for a few months now and has a 55%(+/-) win rate on MTGO comp leagues and PPTQs: 8Rack If you need anymore help I am glad to give it and we also have a discord dedicated to 8 rack and tuning your individual deck for your meta.

Having a bridge and a creature that gets bigger based on them having no hand seems like a nobo to me. I would rather run the packrats so if they blow up the bridge, you can swarm. Also the sideboard is a mess. I would find what decks you have locally and focus on beating them. Buried ruin is a wasted spot and I would rather run ghost quarters or mutavault/blinkmoth. NBontu's last reckoning is a great card for 8 rack, plus cheap and I would run those if you can

Key to the City makes her unblockable and you get to filter cards.

I have a full Naya Zoo deck and it only has a few lands that make mana. You need 3 land types by turn 2 for a 3/3 wild and with only 6 cards that require 3 mana, you don't need a whole lot. Once you have 2 lands out, you can fetch EOT a tapped shock and you are fine.

I have been working on a sideboard plan but nothing concrete yet. Maybe something like 4x Bloodcrazed Paladin 3x Vraska's Contempt 3x Saving Grace 3x Doomfall 2x Crook of Condemnation. This is a super rough idea however, just ways to deal with board wipes and graveyard hate

Said on D's - Pauper ......


Isn't Blossoming Defense and Might of Old Krosa not pauper legal? But I like the idea and have a modern pauper version myself. Half the life means faster games!

I have never cut Lili between games. There are enough niche cards that I can always fine something. As for what to use instead of 2 Lili... If you have any last hopes I would mix them up. Other than that, see if you need more discard or removal and plug that hole.
