Oof_Magic I think the reason for karn staying isn't which piece is more powerful, it's which piece is more breakable. Fact is any deck trying to play lattice isn't doing it for color fixing in modern, they are doing it for broken reasons. Sure back when legacy lists were thinking Aluren/Imperial Recruiter is the only possible deck people weren't claiming the tutor was the issue, it was the card the engine broken. We have other one-sided hate that works with lattice.

In the end aluren was stopped when delver lists started with full anti-combo and dominated, which I would hope for modern too, but we simply don't have the force of will to interact.

3 mana cascade spell into trickery, counter the 3 mana spell, hit emrakul or ulamog or kozilek or cascade spell, if cascade spell, repeat, if eldrazi titan, win. Only failcase is hitting trickery.

At the time the list ran 8 cascade spells and 8 ways of ramping. The ramp was simian spirit guide, another failcase at the time, and gemstone caverns, which only worked occasionally. List was extremely fast and consistent at casting 1-3 eldrazi in the first few turns of the game. Omniscience was run to cast them from the hand if you drew into eldrazi.

The deck now has sharpness agent, so 4 less ramp, 4 more cascade. Less speed more consistency

Another Arcades Deck +1 from me.

Mabye you want to take a look at my Deck: Arcades the new leadsinger of the Rolling Stones

Some suggestions form me:

  • Noetic Scales has nice synergy with Arcades but is a bit vulnerable
  • Aluren is totally busted in an Arcades Deck but is very expensive
  • Retribution of the Meek is another mass removal spell that doesn't affect yourself

Thanks for the recommendation! I've considered him in the past, 6 CMC is just too much to stomach. This deck plays fast as hell with the avg cmc of the deck being 3.2 overall.

I did recently add Combat Celebrant and it's nasty in the deck, and it's a huge bonus that he is 3 cmc or less so he works with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Aluren , Collected Company , and Sevinne's Reclamation . Plus he has 1 toughness which works really well with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive

Right, I missed the "all creatures" limitation.

I forgot to mention that the herbalist sabertooth combo works with an Aluren in play.

Anyhow, great job.

Haha, I suppose you're right RNR_Gaming! Maybe I'll throw in Recycle and City of Solitude into that Aluren and Shrieking Drake combo and relive the mid-90's!

I've been brewing up a lot of the commanders from the set. Though so far I think Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Lonis, Cryptozoologist will be the most interesting. Ragavan slots nicely into a lot of 99s that little monkey is going to do so much work - I've paired it up with Lantern of Insight and have a feeling it'll generate heaps of salt. Lonis on the other hand can be a fun and fair clues deck or a degenerate Aluren bounce house deck even with the prevalence of Dockside Extortionist I think it'll make a splash.

The other commanders either don't have enough support at least from my perspective or they're the same theme with a different spin - not that, that is entirely a bad thing but it puts too much stress on my collection to be able to participate in sanctioned events.

I'm not worried about Vindicate , since Maelstrom Pulse has been in Modern since Alara, and I don't expect the land destruction option to make that much if a difference. (Thereby guaranteeing I get steamrolled by LD some day.) In particular, Legacy/Vintage has everything on the reserved list, which includes the original dual lands, Aluren , Academy Rector , Chains of Mephistopheles , Sylvan Library , Swords to Plowshares , Grim Monolith as some highlights, and anything banned in Modern-- Deathrite Shaman , Field of the Dead , Once Upon a Time , Cloudpost , and so on.

Thanks! I'm happy you like it. I've actually been testing this deck with Horde of Notions for a while now and I think that I will make the switch for a few reasons.

  1. Early game hate. People just dislike Kenrith decks in general, you typically become an early game target. Less people are worried about Horde and I tend to fly under the radar a bit more.

  2. Elemental synergy. Cavern of Souls , Unclaimed Territory , Cover of Darkness , Risen Reef , and Kindred Discovery all have more use cases when running Horde of Notions .

  3. Haste and Vigilance, it's nice being able to swing hard with Horde of Notions immediately on cast, the vigilance is a major bonus because this deck does struggle with blocking since most the bodies in the deck kill themselves.

I've also in my testing decided to take out Phase Dolphin because I simply don't use it enough, if it had haste it would be significantly better. I am going to replace Phase Dolphin with Shalai, Voice of Plenty so that I can protect the creatures better, I've had opponents destroy Suicide Squad creatures mid combat which is always the worst. My only downside to doing this is that Shalai is not 3cmc or less so it's one less card to work with all of my synergies with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Aluren , Collected Company , and Sevinne's Reclamation .

However, Shalai, Voice of Plenty is legendary / historic so it does work with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle in some ways.
