Apostle's Blessing Discussion

I think you might be misinformed as to what "Tron" means in MTG slang. In MTG, Tron refers to the three Urza lands ( Urza's Power Plant , Urza's Mine , & Urza's Tower . Assembling Tron means getting one of each lands down, which provides a huge colorless mana base.

This deck here is what is known as "Cheerios." (because of all the O's in zero-drop artifacts) Usually, it makes extra use out of playing so many zero-drops by incorporating a card with Storm, like Grapeshot .

Mastermind's Acquisition is arguably better then Diabolic Tutor, but at the same CMC, it's not faster. You could use Shred Memory for it's Transmute, which would shave 1 CMC off the casting cost of a tutor, but it will only tutor 2 CMC spells. You could also opt for simple draw card like Sign in Blood . Temple of Silence might also work, especially considering how few 1 drops you've got.

Some sort of protection for your creatures might be useful, as they're pretty essential and you have very few. Faith's Shield is my personal favorite because of its broad "target permanent" language, and its Fateful Hour added applications. There are plenty of other options with white, though. Gods Willing , Brave the Elements , Apostle's Blessing , etc. Something like Noxious Revival would also work.

I'd suggest 1x Buried Ruin in the mainboard.

Some added interaction/disruption spells are usually good. Stuff like Silence , Fatal Push , Holy Day , Path to Exile , Dispatch .

the perfect opening hand here is 2 Forest 1 Glistener Elf 2 Groundswell 1 Apostle's Blessing 1 Mutagenic Growth and you can win by turn 2, so take what I said about pulling the blessing for blue stuff, with a grain of salt. if Wild Defiance was here I'd absolutely run Distortion Strike though, but that does slow the game too a turn 3/4 win over a possible turn 2 win.

my bad. i forgot Invigorate got hit with teh ban hammer on modern. if you are willing to fork over the cash Hinterland Harbor or Vivid Grove and throw in a Distortion Strike or 4 to replace Apostle's Blessing as it functionally works the same to let a creature through to deal damage, but gets a second cast, for free to deal that guaranteed damage. it does have the handicap of being color restricted though, and is less versatile defensively. more offense for less defence gets interesting Blighted Agent is also handy for similar reasons, but that still means splashing blue in. there is also Aqueous Form that will help you scry those pump cards once your poison engine is running

Some things you might consider adding later for sideboard are Spellskite , Force of Vigor , and Teferi, Time Raveler if you're going GWU. Another possiblity might be adding in Giver of Runes in the main board, instead of Apostle's Blessing . And I feel that you may want/need to take out 1 Become Immense and replace it with a Groundswell . Other than that, the main thing is getting some shock lands ( Breeding Pool and Temple Garden if you're GWU).

Apostle's Blessing or something like Serum Visions could be options, but i'm not certain. Maybe more of the creatures could also be an option.

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are fantastic removal spells.

You'll probably want to run some board wipes - Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act are solid, since Voltron tends to fare poorly against wider decks.

You are in Green, so should be running a more aggressive ramp package. Llanowar Elves and Birds of Paradise are two must-haves.

I would cut Spidersilk Net and Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang , and perhaps some of the other more-expensive-to-cast equipment.

Apostle's Blessing is a great way to save your commander from a kill spell or lethal damage.

40 lands is way too many.

It's a little easier going three colors with this build because of how little it relies on white, but I see your point. I think Dive Down would go great in a deck with stuff like Electrostatic Field and Weaver of Lightning , but I really like the repeatability of the Splice on Blessed Breath . Getting it in hand means I get at least two uses out of it, unlike needing 8 deckslots for a playset of Apostle's Blessing and Dive Down .
