Brewer by nurture, Vorthos by Nature


I am primarily a black mage, with heavy influences of green and white in me as well. I have touches of blue, but very little red.

I've gotten into standard thanks to Drana, Liberator of Malakir , as no other card has ever inspired or resonated with me so much. When she rotates out, I'll have to find the card to be the new set of inspiration.

I don't want to make Crucible Lands (HOU) public yet, because it features a leaked card. But I shared it out to you and Argy and you should be able to see it. If you get a chance, I'd VERY much appreciate your thoughts. Seems to have kind of a slow start, but this a BRAND new archetype to me, so I'm not sure if it needs more more ramp, or Control, or what. No worries at all if you can't get to it, and thanks tons if you can!

Okay. First thing is first. If you want to be running six and seven drops in modern, you need one of three things. Either be 1) a ramp deck but if you're doing that why aren't you playing tron, 2) be a control deck, or 3) be cheating them into play. This deck is none of those things. Soul sisters is traditionally a much more aggro/midrange deck, so usually, anything above five mana is usually out of the question. Alternatively, if you want to be RELIABLY casting these expensive spells, you would need more like 27 to 29 lands. Check out this article, or this article for my reasoning behind that.

Second thing. Consistancy. If you want to have a reasonable fighting chance from game to game in any format, you need a TON of redundancy. Take a look these top tier decks for instance. The only deck that has a one of in the main board besides lands is burn, and its a hyper conditional creature. You currently have 14 one ofs in your main, meaning that your deck will be wildly different everytime you play, so your deck will hardly ever have a "favorable" matchup, as you can't predict that cards that you will be drawing.

If you want to see some other sisters builds, you can check out this primer on the archetype, a cat based brew or my sisters deck for some direction as to where to go.

Now some thoughts on some specific cards.

Hopefully some of this helps!
