Agadeem's Awakening

Sorcery

Return from your graveyard to the battlefield any number of target creature cards that each have a different converted mana cost that is X or less.

DawnsRayofLight on Chainer, Dementia Master

1 month ago

As someone who has played Chainer for close to a decade, I have some suggestions I would like to offer. (though everyone's decks run differently!)

34-35 lands is usually enough. I would recommend 34 with Agadeem's Awakening  Flip that gives you 5 spots:

In those spots:

Mana Crypt

Thought Vessel

Charcoal Diamond

Coldsteel Heart

Jet Medallion

(Or all the expensive artifacts like Grim Monolith or what have you)

In place of:

1x Cast Down--> Lethal Scheme: This card is amazing in any reanimator list

1x Culling the Weak--> Phyrexian Altar: you need more sac outlets with some staying power

1x Dismember--> Soul Transfer: seems janky, but versatile

1x Doom Blade--> Baleful Mastery: you can hit more with it.

1x Go for the Throat--> Infernal Grasp

1x Power Word Kill--> Deadly Rollick/Altar of Dementia: for a better killspell or for a sac outlet

1x Sacrifice--> Ashnod's Altar: need more sac outlets with staying power

1x Terror--> Meteor Golem: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove

1x Victim of Night--> Karn Liberated: This guy helps so much with things Black cannot remove

Cruel Tutor--> Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: bonkers for some staying power, also has combo potential

Unmarked Grave--> Putrid Goblin: this or Walking Ballista are good for combos with Mikaeus. Putrid GOblin + Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar + Mikaeus = infinite mana (or sub ashnod's altar for mill).

Suggested Drops, see next list for suggested replacements

Blood Pet--> sort of an eh card, I might think of something with more oomph

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip--> I do like her, she just never did anything when I ran her.

Ruthless Technomancer: I have debated a lot adding him, in something like Korvold, he is an all-star, in chainer, he can be good, but I would almost always rather have Disciple of Bolas

Skirge Familiar: I get the reason it is in here, but there are better cards.

Black Market: It's nice, but can be too slow.

Liliana of the Dark Realms: I just have never been a big fan, she feels too lackluster.

Final Parting: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough

Sidisi, Undead Vizier: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough

Rune-Scarred Demon: good card, but I feel you can part with some tutor because you have MORE than enough, there also some stronger creatures to fit in the spot.

Suggestions

Archon of Cruelty: expensive mana wise but an all star.

Kokusho, the Evening Star: has been in my deck from the beginning and has flat out won me games.

Brainstealer Dragon: seems janky, but I added to just try it and it has been amazing.

Black Market Connections: You need more draw (also helps with ramp)

Phyrexian Arena: You need more draw

Bolas's Citadel: an amazing card. Wins games all the time.

Disciple of Bolas: card draw and life gain

Fell Stinger: card draw

Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed: Great for recursion

Reanimate, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death. and Animate Dead: it is good to have other means of reanimation if Chainer keeps getting removed (I also suggest sac outlets to help keep your creatures from getting exiled when they spot remove Chainer)

Hope this helps! Here is my list to maybe show you how I run the list: The True Meaning of Death and Taxes

Oh (bleep) you're right! LMAO. Like I said, I've been playing since Revised and have a LOT of decks. Always had a penchant for tribal knights (even though there have been/are better tribes for sure through the years). My Modern version does, in fact, run Giver of Runes. The Kor designation doesn't allow me to Cavern of Souls her in but I do run plenty of white sources. I'm sorry bud. 100% my bad. Sorry about that. I need to NOT drink my scotch and give advice. I just get soooooo excited when I see a solid knight tribal build I lose control.

I WILL post my ACTUAL MODERN legal version in the next few days. Giver of Runes is my only non-human or non knight creature in that deck. I run everything else human and/or knight in that deck-most are both. I announce my first Cavern of Souls as "knight" which prevents counter magic on all but the Giver of Runes and Noble Hierarch. Those both being (ideally) early drops-counter magic doesn't normally come into play.

My current, most regularly played, Modern deck is not knights (although I do play it still for a change of pace once in awhile but it's not my number one deck-hence my leading you astray). My current regular MODERN deck is as follows:

Deck: Greif Blade

Main: 4 Ephemerate 1 Poet's Quill 1 Batterskull 4 Giver of Runes 1 Sword of Fire and Ice 2 Plains 3 Godless Shrine 3 Concealed Courtyard 3 Skyclave Apparition 1 Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 3 Tidehollow Sculler 2 Malakir Rebirth  Flip 2 Charming Prince 1 Kaldra Compleat 1 Silent Clearing 1 Shriekmaw 4 Grief 3 Feign Death 4 Marsh Flats 1 Lion Sash 1 Flooded Strand 3 Touch the Spirit Realm 1 Swamp 1 Castle Locthwain 2 Agadeem's Awakening  Flip 2 Solitude 4 Stoneforge Mystic 1 Verdant Catacombs

Sideboard: 2 Leyline of Sanctity 1 Shadowspear 2 Damn 1 Sword of Sinew and Steel 2 Damping Sphere 2 Sanctum Prelate 2 Kaya's Guile 2 Dauthi Voidwalker 1 Reduce to Memory

This is the list I run most frequently so it's the one I know best and have readily available to share. This is NOT a net-deck AFAIK. If there is an identical or similar list floating around in Cyberspace it's purely coincidental. This list was home brewed and is one of my favorites I've ever made through the years.

Hi Slashdance! Thank you! Yeah I wanted to try it out hoping I'd have ample opportunity to cast my splashy spells before removing much ramp or mana sources.

In fact, I have a handful of modal spell/land cards in the deck to make up the difference for what is a total of 36 lands, such as Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and Song-Mad Treachery  Flip.

Hope you can try it out one of these days, happy building!

Dreschjuice I see that like me you have a small budget. I play MTG Arena which is a ton more Free-to-Play friendly with the wildcard system. Definitely play the lifegain lands from Neon Dynasty and the Campuses from Strixhaven. Instead of Agadeem's Awakening  Flip play Diregraf Rebirth. However since The Meathook Massacre is being used as the win con there isn’t a clear budget replacement for Standard. The next cheapest and best thing would be Lolth, Spider Queen. It’s cheaper but can be hard to use depending on how much Magic you’ve played.

Question about lands. Here is my deck list

https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/zombies-at-my-neighbors/

I run 4 Concealed Courtyard and 4 Silent Clearing and a set of the orzhoff fetch and shock lands.

I want to run a set of Agadeem's Awakening  Flip

Do I get rid of the concealed courtyards or silent clearings?

Thanks for any advice!! Been pondering this for a little while

If you are going with elf token theme, Presence of Gond might synergize well. You may also want to look at combos that utilize Devoted Druid (if you attache gond to devoted, there are a few ways to get infi elf token using ETB effects, like Ivy Lane Denizen or Coat of Arms.

Many elf decks can benefit from Skyshroud Poacher

Here are a few more cards that can synergize with an elf token /black deck. Eyeblight Massacre, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Harald Unites the Elves, Prowess of the Fair, Serpent's Soul-Jar, Tyvar Kell

I would get rid of Canopy Tactician it doesn't give that much mana at 3 CMC.

Seedborn Muse is not doing much in your deck, since you don't have a lot of tapping. Bloom Tender can help with color fixing.

Nature's Lore is better than Rampant Growth.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is slower Gaea's Cradle and also let you scry 4 and get a creature.

You may want to look at modal lands Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip to name 2.

You might be able to eak 1% bu adding the other fetch lands, at the very least add Prismatic Vista

Hey!

I'm a beginner and I just saw your deck which looks extremely fun but there are some cards that are a bit expensive. Would it be possible for you to tell me what to replace the land cards with and the number of copies? I saw that you were talking about Evolving Wilds but nothing more ^^

If you can also tell me what to replace Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and The Meathook Massacre with. Maybe that's too many changes and would make the deck completely unviable, I don't know ^^.
