TriusMalarky on Daemogoth Titan Pest Deck

1 day ago

Given you're playing in Modern:

Jund Titan seems like a fun build. You'd play 4x each Utopia Sprawl , Arbor Elf , and Ignoble Hierarch maybe with a couple Birds of Paradise . All of your lands should tap for green or black, as you're splashing red for Temur Battle Rage and Thud , possibly Lightning Bolt as well.

An optimal play would be

  • Turn One Arbor Elf

  • Turn Two Utopia Sprawl, tap it and untap the sprawled land for 4 mana, drop Titan

  • Turn three swing with titan and use either TBR or Thud to pull a turn three kill.

Otherwise, you'd be trying to play Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek on top of your ramp to get a turn four kill, backed with interaction.

You get a lot of power from Grisly Salvage digging 5 cards deep for a titan, and also just swinging with titan a couple times typically wins the game if you can use 's great removal suite to keep the board clear.

It probably won't be top tier by any means, as Path to Exile and Thoughtseize easily trash your fast kills, but it should work.

Not sure how important a turn 2 Grist is to you but Ebon Stronghold , Peat Bog , Hickory Woodlot and Havenwood Battleground could help. I use the Blue version as one of the few ways to get Thada Adel, Acquisitor out on turn two. Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose would help as well.

Nice deck +1 :)

I recommed adapting the Manabase to run one Wastes against Blood Moon , otherwise you wont be able to pay for your Eldrazi-Creatures: +1 Wastes , +1 Prismatic Vista , -1 Forest , -1 Wooded Foothills .
Also the recently printed Ignoble Hierarch is a better choice than Birds of Paradise .

Rhadamanthus on Does a clone copy temporary …

The Clone will just be a regular (non-artifact) Birds of Paradise .

The simple version of the explanation for copy effects is that they only copy what's written on the original. If you're copying a spell, it also takes into account choices made while casting the spell (modes, targets, whether it was kicked, etc.). If you're copying another copy of something, it will take into account any special effects of the other copy effect (for example, if you make a copy of Birds with Phyrexian Metamorph , then Clone the Metamorph copy, the Clone copy will also be an artifact).

Drahydra on Does a clone copy temporary …

2 weeks ago

Say I cast a Clone , cloning a Birds of Paradise . Before the Clone resolves, I tap Liquimetal Coating turning the Birds into an artifact creature until end of turn. 1.) Would the Clone be an artifact copy of the Birds? 2.) If so, would it be an artifact until the end of the turn, or would it be indefinite?

Currently in between classes as of now(got a 97 on my AP Math final :) ). Here is some quick suggestions as of now, as I feel obliged since I’m one week late. I’ll certainly elaborate or find better suggestions as in the future.Definitely suggest Birds of Paradise , maybe Blood Artist or the classic two Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood , putting either one of them or both might work. I haven’t had the luxury of time in my favor, so I haven’t really analyzed your deck, I’ll probably comment later.

kellpiece on Quick Emrakul

I had a friend who ran a similar deck and he was huge on Lightning Greaves as well as Elvish Piper as Balaam suggested above.

Graves are great for making sure emrakul gets haste to instant swing right after he lands, also if you go the piper route is good for protecting, also allows you to instantly drop the piper and tap it to drop emrakul, then shift the greaves over for zero mana and attack with it same turn. pretty spicy combo.

also Time of Need is pretty clutch and lets you make sure u can always have a big boi in your hand. If you're playing for the combo, Worldly Tutor also great for pulling a Birds of Paradise or any of the other creatures you have listed that you may need based on the hand you draw. I also agree with Balaam on ditching some of those random cards for mana dorks is a good call.
