skoobysnackz Deckling

Hi everyone I'm skoobysnackz, I've been playing magic for roughly a year now almost exclusively in Modern. I like to play control decks most, but I also really enjoy combo gimmicky decks with a lot of flavor. My favorite colors are Esper (), Sultai(), and Grixis () because of their powerful control spells and awesome interactions. I also really like the blance that Temur() decks offer with big creatures and good protection. My favorite creatures are The Gitrog Monster, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, and Dragonlord Ojutai, my favorite planeswalker is Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, my favorite land is Dark Depths, and my favorite artwork is Hokori, Dust Drinker, wish it were more playable in modern. Although I can appreciate a well thought out aggro deck, I can't stand when people just copy a deck they found somewhere online (like that Treasure Hunt/ Zombie Infestation combo or Devoted Druid + Quillspike ). To me, a well planned out turn 20 win is much more satisfying than any turn 2-3 win. If you like any of my decks please leave a comment or a +1, and if you have any advice or suggestions definitely let me know.

Thanks for the insight Firebones675. I see what you mean about Rhonas the Indomitable, but in the testing I've done so far, I think the most difficult gods to activate are actually Thassa, God of the Sea and Kefnet the Mindful. Currently, all the permanents that add to blue devotion are relatively costly and don't activate Thassa until mid-late game. Also with the amount of ramp it is easy to empty your hand quickly, deactivating kefnet. Although it is usually just as easily refilled, sometimes activating him does pose a problem. Also, I think it is important to note that Kefnet is always a creature unlike the devotion gods and therefore he does activate Rhonas. Also while Rhonas' +2/+0 ability for 3 seems a little expensive, it is usually quite effective for activating himself when there's a Kiora's Follower on the board. Regarding Overbeing of Myth, I think it could be a great fit, but I will have to do some testing to see how it compares to Prime Speaker Zegana, and Zendikar Resurgent. Right now I'm thinking it will take the spot of the latter, but depending on how well it performs it might take both spots. Again, thanks for the input!

Thanks Lutachris23, don't know how I forgot to add that, great suggestion!

Sorry, Hydrax, I forgot to address your comment earlier, my bad. I think Call to the Kindred is a really good card for tribal/changeling decks along with Descendants' Path. I'm not sure though how much use it will really be here since there are only really 10 gods. Calling the deck tribal is cool for flavor, but practically, I don't think there are enough gods to warrant it's use. Here the one of As Foretold makes a little more sense along with Nissa, Steward of Elements as they can cheat out more cards. Still, thanks for the suggestion and the support, I appreciate it a lot!

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions and support everyone!

seshiro_of_the_orochi your suggestions look really cool, but I'm afraid the tutors just don't fill my hand enough. This deck is capable of emptying the hand in just a few turns and what it really needs is cards to fill it back up. While Commune with the Gods and Time of Need help to find the right card, I think Blue Sun's Zenith and Pull from Tomorrow help more by filling up the hand for Kefnet the Mindful. Also Horizon Chimera is a cool card, but I don't think it does enough mainboard to warrant a spot. That being said, I think a spot or two could be freed up in the sideboard against match-ups when I need the life.

HarrisonHarry, if this deck was standard Metallic Mimic might find a spot in here, but unfortunately I just don't think it helps enough in this build because it does absolutely nothing for the Theros/Nyx gods and their devotion.

tumorman73, Overgrowth is definitely an option I have been considering. While it does work exceptionally well with arbor elves and kiora's follower, I think it's a little bit slow in this deck. Nevertheless, I will keep it in the maybeboard in case I feel I need more ramp later on.

Thanks a lot Bengernaut, and everyone else who has commented and left a +1, I really appreciate the support!

Thanks for the suggestions dotytron, I think Bident of Thassa would be a good addition, especially since Thassa, God of the Sea seems to be the hardest god to activate in the testing I've done so far. Bow of Nylea seems pretty cool too, but I think it may not fit the theme of the deck too much, I'll test it out and see if maybe a spot in the sideboard could be freed up for it.

Yes, troublinparadise this deck is only hypothetical for now since to my knowledge there is no way to get the cards from Amonkhet until the pre-release at the very earliest.

Thanks for the clarification chosenone124 and Neotrup.

If I have three devotion to blue and have Thassa, God of the Sea on the battlefield, then I cast Prime Speaker Zegana giving me five devotion to blue, would Thassa become a creature before Zegana's ability triggers?

Cool deck! With Loaming Shaman already in the sideboard, he seems maybe less necessary game 1. I might also consider going down to 3 Raven's Crime as it's not as useful as Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize early on and you already have a lot of ways to get cards into your graveyard if you're using it on yourself.

A 1 of The Gitrog Monster could be useful as it has a great interaction with dredge, Scattered Groves, Raven's Crime and the list goes on. I realize he can't be brought back with Sun Titan, but a 6/6 deathtouch, haste, and shroud (from Lightning Greaves), and that has card draw potential is terrifying imo.

Love the name! if only Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves were actually useful here...

Thanks for the advice landofMordor, I think you're probably right about the discard route. A couple copies of Atarka's Command could be good here, but I'm looking for burn spells that can target creatures as well to make full use of Soul-Scar Mage. I've never been very into burn, however, so advice in that department would be great.

A couple cards that come to mind here would be Timebender, Delay, and Dust of Moments. I like what you've got going on here so far. I'm also excited about As Foretold, looks like it could have some really cool interactions.
