I love the theme!

Razaketh, the Foulblooded probably has too high a converted mana cost (CMC) for modern, if you want to keep it, i would make it a 1of.

You will also need a way to draw cards, looks like you will run out of steam. Because you have high CMC Dark Confidant i think maybe too painful to you and Phyrexian Arena does not really fit the theme, so perhaps Dark Prophecy is more on theme. alternately try Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper and Read the Bones.

Your sideboard should be how to deal with other decks, for example graveyard decks, storm decks, combo decks etc. Where do you plan to play this deck and what do people normally play? The answers to those questions will tell you what cards should be in your sideboard.

Witch's Cottage should go in your main deck, you should also consider some different lands, maybe Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin for any deck that needs specific lands (eg tron)

This is all I can think of at the moment, great theme idea!

There are a few ways I like to evaluate the starting hand of this. The main thing is early mana. You want at least 3 mana worth of lands + manadorks + artifacts first and foremost. If you have something to get extra mana early that's just fantastic. Next most important is having a good 2-, 3-, and/or 5-drop, and the most of those turns you have something good to play on, the better. Lastly, I would give a small bonus for having a counterspell, for having at least one planeswalker, and/or for having at least one card draw spell or ability, but only count these if you can't decide if you should mulligan or not from the earlier points.

Short version: If you have at least 3 mana worth of mana-producing cards, keep unless it has like 0 playables.

Gonna test a Goblin Charbelcher in the side for another finisher. Haven't had good luck with a Ballista, but if the Belcher doesn't pan out I might try that again.

Also, going to find a Chalice and test that out in the side. Not sure how often I would wish for it but it definitely would have helped me in my last couple matches against Prowess and Humans.

MagiclayWiz: This deck started on a whim because of how rare the effect of Liquimetal is in Magic, and has gone from really bad and durdly to an actual deck that can hard control a game, and Liquimetal is still a keystone to it! I will definitely keep it updated, I play it at least once a week and it is still my favorite modern deck. Keep checking back in for my new ideas!

Rogue's Passage can help make your stuff un-blockable. Maybe swap Despark with Path to Exile, its one white and cheap with the recent reprint. I think if you want grave recursion, Reanimate (kinda pricey I know) is pretty solid for this. You might like Magmaquake, with all your fliers its a one-sided board wipe.

fadelightningmm on Infinite Loops

I started playing magic a long time ago (about 16 years ago), and in the beginning I was your typical Timmy and loved swinging in with big creatures. Insane combat math was always my favorite thing to puzzle out.

A few years ago when dominaria released a friend suggested that I try storm because my favorite part was the math in combat. I took him up on the offer and built Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and loved it. Since then a lot of the decks I have built have been combo decks. There is something vastly different about playing combo versus playing against combo. A seasoned combo player will almost make combos look effortless, but in reality it is much more demanding to find opportunities to do things(assuming it’s not a boring oops I win combo). There are a ton of combo decks out there but they aren’t as bad as people say. As Yisan (great name btw) mentioned it’s cool to pull off the unexpected combo win, but afterwards shuffle up a different deck. Sometimes when you run combo you don’t pull off your combo for a long time ex. I have a Yennet, Cryptic Sovereign deck that tries to win with Fractured Identity and Phage the Untouchable. I’ve had the deck since C18 released and finally pulled off the combo this past Saturday. Combo feels like a really cool achievement and once you pull it off you move on to check off another thing on the list.

Attrition games are fun, but they can take forever. If you’re behind in a game of attrition it can be no fun. At least combo allows for less of the extended I’m behind feel bads. Also you can make some really good attrition based combo decks. Look at any stax based deck for that matter.

I think too many people in the magic community like to complain about things. It’s fine to not like something, but it doesn’t make others wrong for wanting to play that style of game. Pre-game communication can help lessen the feel bads of losing to combo, infect, or voltron. Talk to the group if you want a combo free game discuss that with them.

In the end I guess what I’m trying to say is combo is a legitimate play style. Things change over time. Some things like Channel enable a combo far too easily (something like Flash could also be in this category too) should be banned. Starting a game and immediately ending it isn’t fun (sorry cEDH community).

You're welcome.

I was talking about both. Noxious revival isn't necessary, as is the biggest part of your recursion package. Three or four pieces should be enough. In my stompy list centered around Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, I only run two: Paleoloth and Eternal Witness, and these actually interact quite nicely.

Hey Rasaru, thanks for reaching out! If possible you should come join the PDH Discord server (here is the invite link https://discord.gg/AUUBCku). This can make for much quicker communication!

To see which commanders are the most powerful I'd point you to the Tier List. At the moment only Tier 1 is accurate. You can find good deck examples for them in the Compendium.

Obviously fun is subjective so all I can do is list some of the decks I've enjoyed playing. You can find my lists for these here.

enpc on Defender of the Heart, revised

DemonDragonJ: Yes it does, very much so. Not to mention, all of those creatures have a persisent effect. The card you designed requires you to sacrifice the creature to get a one off (abelit very powerful) effect.

I kind of want to say 5 mana for a 2/2 with trample sounds like the right balance here. It's basically a tooth and nail if you can connect it, so making it small but cheap to cast would be the go.

But the problem is that you've changed the fundamental parameters. The whole point of Defense of the Heart was that you could play around it by not playing creatures. But this one here is designed so that to play around it, you have to play creatures of your own to hold up as blockers. Yes, I'm aware that reomval is a thing but it's the same for the OG card too, so I'm moving past that fact.

Personally I would say thath you should either try to stick to the card more closely or not try to make a creature version. But what you have here is more akin to Tooth and Nail than it is DotH.

RedShirtComics on The Pantheon - Theros Gods ...

Child of Alara isn’t from Theros. Golos, on the other hand fits the theme and despite being from a core set appears to be from Theros with his Greek sounding name, clothing and religious theme.

Mechanically Golos is also better because card draw is definitely weak because of how many permanents devotion requires.

TWCE on Oracle Core

spuiopq Meme Journey seems better as a defensive option in the deck (with the breakfast pile) to shuffle Chain of Vapor back in and attempt to win again the following turn if the first one failed. With all of the Hulk piles there will be at least 3 devotion on board (Thassa's Oracle + Spellseeker/Cephalid Illusionist), and likely higher if the game lasts longer (Rhystic Study, Thrasios, etc.). Thus Meme Journey as a tech card really doesn't do much unless you have other removal on top of it. Since that's the case it's basically just better to run better interaction and have higher card quality than a card that isn't even guaranteed to stop the combo.

Hey Poly_raptor,

Thanks for your comment and upvote.

You're probably right in saying that I need to cut a few lands, I have more ramp cards than usual as well as having higher lands than needed. I think I should take out all the lands you mentioned instead of adding any more, because there were some cards that I forgot to add, which were Helm of the Host, Cathars' Crusade and Regna, the Redeemer, as well as Quest for Renewal which you mentioned.

This means that I need to take out 6 more cards, which probably be The Great Henge (seems more like a win-more card), Finale of Devastation (X has to be 5 or more to make it actually worthwhile in this deck I think), Sublime Archangel (If I have enough creatures for this to be worth it, I probably should be attacking with all of them anyway), Unclaimed Territory (I'll keep Cavern of Souls, but I think I can cut this one because I only have 20 Angels, not including things that can make Angels like Decree of Justice and Serra the Benevolent, which may be a problem as well) and Farseek (I probably have enough ramp cards).

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon

PS: I also forgot to add Worldly Tutor and Enlightened Tutor, so I'll take out Savage Summoning and Scout's Warning for them.

I've played many a Reckless Bushwhacker in my time. It is a very strong card. To make it work best I would recommend more creatures, especially 1 drops, maybe Zurgo Bellstriker, or Grim Initiate. I don't know if spending turn 3 playing Icon of Ancestry is worth it. But hey, that's just my opinion. :) Overall kool deck
