skoobysnackz Deckling

Hey there I'm skoobysnackz. I've been playing magic since the end of 2015. I started out playing only modern and lots of control decks, which is still my favorite strategy. However, I now also play much more casual, combo oriented decks in both modern and commander/EDH. My favorite creatures are Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. Here are links to my modern decks that are centered around them: All Glory to the Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. My favorite color combos are Esper (), Sultai (), and Grixis (), with Temur () close behind. My favorite commander at the moment is Taigam, Sidisi's Hand because of his lock combo with Maralen of the Mornsong and Mindlock Orb here is my take on the deck: Taigam and Maralen's Sinister Song. If you like any of my decks don't hesitate to let me know, especially if you have suggestions. I'd like to mention, though, that there are a few cards I will almost always exclude from my decks: Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Tarmogoyf, Liliana of the Veil, Mana Drain, Force of Will, Necropotence, and Ad Nauseam. I feel that these cards are too unbalanced and take the fun out of the games they appear in, but I will not hold it against anyone else for playing them. Finally, I think it is important to say that if you like any deck (not just mine) enough to put it into a folder, or to comment something like "nice deck", just give the deck an upvote. It costs you nothing and shows the deck is appreciated.

Nice deck! Have you considered Crystal Ball? Sensei's Divining Top it is not, but it's as close as it gets in modern, and can get repeated uses unlike Riverwise Augur.

Sure have! It's in the sideboard right now because I like the deathtouch on Fathom Feeder better than the 2/2 body, and fathom feeder can exile multiple cards (even if they are just from the library) whereas Tidehollow Sculler needs a displacer. In the end it just comes down to preference. I don't think you can really go wrong playing sculler type cards in this kind of deck. Thanks for the input!

Personally, I think dropping white for more big eldrazi would be a mistake. This isn't a tron list and imo wouldn't benefit from playing more big un-synergistic eldrazi (btw, not sure you saw but Thought-Knot Seer is already in here. He does exile cards, so his synergy is very welcome). On top of that white is actually a very important color for the deck. It allows me to play Spell Queller who is probably the best creature in the deck actually, and Rest in Piece, which brings me to your point on Relic of Progenitus. In theory, I would rather have relic than pyxis in this kind of deck, but because Rest in Piece is already in here, I decided to sideboard the relic and mainboard Pyxis of Pandemonium. With Rest in Peace out, relic is essentially a dead card, so I decided to put something that can still exile cards while still bringing some kind of benefit if Rest in Peace is around.

Here's my attempt at an ultimatum deck, hope this helps: Ultimate Ultimatum.

The black is in the reminder text so it doesn't contribute to color identity. Whoever called you out is wrong. Crypt Ghast is one of the most common cards in mono black decks and has the same white/black cost in the reminder text.

Just wanted to clear something up, as far as I can tell, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx has no synergy with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (other than it becoming a swamp) so I don't really see the relevance of having it alongside an urborg. I usually run 1-2 of my legendary lands depending on how useful they are. Here having 2 nykthos is not the worst because I can tap the first one for mana, play the second one and sac the first one, then tap the second one for more mana. I'm trying to stay away from having too many creatures that will switch sides with Endless Whispers, so I'm a little hesitant on adding more creatures. The only reason I didn't add Yahenni's Expertise was because it actually kills Yahenni herself who is my only creature that's resistant to Endless Whispers, but I guess I should give it a try at least. Thanks for all your input PhyrexianPreator, I really appreciate it.

Of course, can't believe I missed that one, thanks!
