Cabal Coffers Discussion
2 days ago
I'm not sure what your playgroup consists of, or what your budget is, so I'll just rattle off some cards and (if needed) their budget alternatives, as well as what I would suggest replacing.
Chromatic Lantern in place of Everflowing Chalice : Lantern fixes your lands that tap for colorless (or cabal coffers before you get it going), and keeps you from getting wrecked by Blood Moon by giving your "Mountains" the ability to tap for black.
I already see some other great cards in your maybeboard: Dark Confidant , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Thoughtseize , and Necropotence among them. Confidant is "draw" without the "draw", which can be an important distinction for certain cards (cough cough Chains of Mephistopheles cough cough Nekusar, the Mindrazer cough cough). Gary is an alternate wincon and also replenishes your health after you drain yourself with your own cards. Thoughtseize basically is "I want this card in your hand" with your commander, and Necropotence is just a broken card that gives you more cards than you can cast.
I feel like your deck may be missing some draw power, so I would suggest Geth's Grimoire , the previously mentioned Vilis, and Howling Mine / Mikokoro, Center of the Sea . With all the discard potential, these last two shouldn't be a problem if your opponents get a couple cards!
For any combo of the above suggestions, I would consider cutting Living Death , Death Cloud , Tangle Wire , and Mindslicer . My reasoning for these four specifically is that they are too mana costly and also negatively affect your boardstate in a way that doesn't put you ahead.
Lastly, I have some land suggestions that I am unsure what to cut for because you already have a decent selection. High Market is a great land, along with its alternate, Miren, the Moaning Well . Deserted Temple can be an extra Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . If you like to take risks, you could include Dark Depths for the classic Vesuva / Thespian's Stage combo!

seshiro_of_the_orochi I do have those in my Ezuri deck, so if nothing else I have a great new evasion piece. And plakjekaas I can untap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun with it and Arbor Elf , which are also in my Ezuri, Renegade Leader deck (Found here, haven't written a primer for it yet Little Green Men Unite!). Not quite Cabal Coffers , but pretty good still.

So I pulled Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth in my MH2 prerelease kit. I haven't followed the discussion on the card much. I know Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is good in combination with Cabal Coffers . What are some degenerate or just cool things to do with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth ?

Thanks Albogrease you raise a couple of very good points. I realised that my win con of the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combo wasnt in yet as one part is still in the post (and thus not yet in the deck). But this made me think more: what else am I using to win by, rather than durdle round and play cards?
So far I have:
The previously mentioned combo
Exsanguinate for a big wipe out, and protect its casting with counterspells (fragile I know).
Felidar Sovreign plus any lifegain pieces I have to win of its trigger.
If you have any ideas on this I would very much appreciate the suggestions!

Dermotaxi: The unexpected Phage the Untouchable tech
White got some nice new toys in Esper Sentinel and Solitude (actually a good card in the cycle which is rare)
Ragavan is pretty neat, not sure if it will replace Grenzo or Breeches at the helm of those style of decks, but I like the card
Piru is another awesome callback to deep MTG lore.
Lonis is fantastic. I love it when they print commanders for narrow archetypes
Not sure what all the hub-bub about Gaea's Will and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is about. The cards are strong but not too strong, and they fit perfectly within Green's color identity. Seem well designed to me. I could see Gaea's Presence being a bit gross in modern As Foretold or Living End decks, but that's about it It'd actually be nice to see a full cycle of Urborg and Yavimaya printed someday.
Nice to see some good $$ reprints in Greed , Mirari's Wake , Enchantress's Presence , Zuran Orb , and Sterling Grove . None of these will impact Modern, but it's great for commander. Other than the clear cash grab choice to print Cabal Coffers at mythic, the reprints have been on point this set so far.

With Cabal Coffers being in Modern Horizons 2, your mana ramp ability just got better.
