DMFF on Black and White Soul Sisters - MODERN

1 week ago

Firstly, welcome to the MTG community! Modern is definitely a more hostile format, but Soul Sisters can hold their own, especially in Orzhov. One of my close friends in my "close friends playgroup" built his own rendition of Orzhov Soul Sisters as well and it can certainly give any aggro deck a run for its money. Since Lifegain is more of a Control-esque strategy, I do have a few suggestions for your main and side:

Main: - Fatal Push, Solitude (ik a little more expensive, but so so good), or Path to Exile for cheap/"free" removal of onboard threats. I would cut 2-3 copies of March of Otherworldly Light since it requires more resources, but can be great in the mid/late game.

  • Guide of Souls, the new Soul Brother! (It could be called Soul Siblings!) This card is a more powerful version of the Soul Sisters, so I definitely recommend running 4x of this card once it drops in MH3. I would drop the 4x Auriok Champion for this due to the lower mana cost and higher power level.

  • Thoughtseize is a great handrip card and the -2 life is barely noticeable in your build. Until you pick up any copies, I would move Inquisition of Kozilek into your main board for better control and knowledge of your opponent's gameplan right from game 1. I would also suggest a combination of both of these cards in your mainboard to equal 6 total. My wife runs 3 of each in her own rendition of the meta Yawgmoth deck.

  • I would cut the Ghost Quarters for Field of Ruin, reduce them to 2 or 3 copies and move them to your mainboard, cutting some basic lands. My wife actually runs this in her mainboard to mess with greedy manabases to great success.

Side: - Having both Sanctifier en-Vec & Rest in Peace is a bit redundant. I would personally cut them both and replace with 3 or 4 Leyline of the Void to have a good chance of hurting Graveyard strategies before turn 1 even starts. Keep all the Surgical Extractions in though because it is great targeted GY removal that can outright cripple decks.

Hopefully this will be helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions!

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant seem weak in reanimator. Auriok Champion is a clear upgrade. Windbrisk Raptor big reanimation target that is so on theme it should be a crime.

Late to Dinner on theme reanimation.

Strionic Resonator/Lithoform Engine doublers.

IMO the most efficient lifegain cards are Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Essence Warden, followed by Leonin Elder, Spectrum Sentinel, Profane Memento, The Meathook Massacre, Auriok Champion, and Lifegift. They all scale absurdly well with multiple opponents.

nbarry223 on In defense of Veil of …

I would actually argue that powerful but niche cards like Veil of Summer and Aether Gust is something the format needs more of. They aren't strictly better than other counterparts, but give some "narrow" hate that can be quite powerful in the right matches. We need more hate-cards in the format which are relevant in this manner. Wedge hate cards like this are great, and it's a shame that they aren't all at the same power level.

Cards like Devout Decree, Celestial Purge, Noxious Grasp, Deathmark, Fry, and Rending Volley just aren't powerful enough. White does get some decent creatures that fit the mold like Auriok Champion and Sanctifier en-Vec but those require a little more than a slight splash.

So in conclusion, rather than argue that Veil of Summer (a fixed Autumn's Veil) is too powerful, I would argue that the counterparts from other colors are just too weak, being outclassed by normal removal options.

We need more narrow cards that fit into what the color wants to do, and hate against what its enemy colors want to do better. For example, maybe some kind of Searing Blaze type of effect (deals with creatures and goes face) for against , and a effect against that punishes them for swarming and is a form of removal.

sedris_the_traitor_king on $20 "Twin" Combo

The only substitute off the top of my head is Altar of Dementia, but that is more expensive(both cost and cmc) and does a worse job. Also Hair-Strung Koto but thats waaaay worse. I would probably play a different payoff if ur concerned about budget. Just from a quick look here's what I found:

Ajani's Welcome - infinite life W

Anointer Priest/Impassioned Orator - infinite life 1W

Auriok Champion - infinite life WW

Ivy Lane Denizen - infinite power on any target creature 3G

Attended Socialite - infinite power 1G

Imo you can cut 1 of them with no significant impact to your deck, or even replace them all with Ajani's Welcome. At the end of the day, infinite creatures is infinite creatures. 95/100 times you execute the combo you wont need a finisher, and in the case that you do it isnt 100% certain you will have on. Ajani's Welcome is good enough where even if all the tokens are killed it is nearly impossible to lose the game, as the only way to kill someone with infinite life is to have infinite damage, and combo decks are rare in 60 card formats. Hope this helped :)
