SpeedOfLightning - I don't run Scroll Rack because I cannot find one for cheap. The Cavern of Souls I run I was lucky and got it for only $30 thanks to a contest I won, and I was able to get a few other lands with it. I sure can look at your deck. :D

kalfred16 - Molten Echoes wouldn't be too bad. Shame a lot of my creatures are legendary or enter f

smilodex on Narset competitive

@ LordTsukune: sorry that's not the case. In a normal(/casual) EDH group, I'd agree that almost every Narset, Enlightened Master-deck it feels like it's one of the strongest decks. But when you play this deck in a really competetive environment/meta, everybody knows how the deck works. Narset is only strong, if Narset is on the field. Im really sorry and I don't want to offend the author of this Narset deck, but in cEDH, you'll never ever win a game without Cavern of Souls.

Why?? Because they will ALWAYS counter your Narset, so you'll have a lot of trouble to win, because if Narset costs 10 mana, the game is already over for you. A really competetive Narset deck needs some protection like Silence, Defense Grid, Cavern of Souls and counterspells.

Here is a really competetive Narset-list:

Looking over the land section. It can be updated and help abit. Cavern of Souls is one example how does this card synergize in this deck? You can only choose one creature type and we all know it's just black lol. This card can shave off a lot of money and even bring one in that we can use. I see a few other lands But am gonna skim over them. Other than that great work. Best thing about this site is we can all brew and make it even more awesome. I'll be joining this deck group and testing it as well:)

Oloro_Magic on Help with 2nd-ever competitive deck ...

Yeah against the top of the meta I think you will have quite a bit of trouble unfortunately. Though this doesn't mean there isn't any potential here. You could move more towards mono-green aggro and play cards like Hexdrinker, Strangleroot Geist, and Steel Leaf Champion and the like. While this isn't a very competitive deck it tends to be very fast and can steal games. Similarly with mono-red aggro with a devotion twist built around Fanatic of Mogis which is a cheap deck to start with but not very competitive. I could also see you moving towards G/R Ponza and being that Blood Moon deck which is just good enough to win games by itself.

Where I see the most potential however is pivoting towards G/R Eldrazi in modern. Here is an example list G/R Eldrazi Optimal. Now, yes this is over budget by quite a bit but we can cut the price and build up to something more optimal over time. On that list the only semi-pricy cards that I would call necessary are Karplusan Forest, Eldrazi Temple, and Thought-Knot Seer. Pretty much everything else that commands a high price can be neglected for now in favor of budget options while the deck evolves. Noble Hierarch can become Elvish Mystic for example, and while nowhere near as good, the deck still functions. Similarly, you don't need to go investing in Cavern of Souls, you can play Unclaimed Territory and while not getting the best part of the effect you still can make colorless mana this way. You can skip most of the dual lands, again while not optimal there are cheaper alternatives in the meantime. I think G/R Eldrazi is also fairly well-positioned right now so there is a plus there. Let me know if you need any help if you choose this route!

As for your current deck, Harmonize, Lightning Greaves, Beast Whisperer are all bad. You can make an argument for one Whisperer but even then that is not ideal. None of these cards particularly do much and if you are casting Harmonize in modern with this deck's gameplan you are probably already losing. You really need a 2-drop, if you stay in mono-green, 1 Scavenging Ooze and 4 Strangleroot Geist are decent options. I would personally consider getting into red to play Lightning Bolt and Bonecrusher Giant as you need some kind of removal; you can't expect your opponents to just do nothing, especially in modern. If you stay mono-green though, you basically have to play a couple Dismember in the main or side. You also need a sideboard, I know it is extra money but in modern a lot of the skill is being able to adapt to your opponent. For you, cards like Shapers' Sanctuary, Chameleon Colossus, Grafdigger's Cage, Reclamation Sage, Weather the Storm, and Relic of Progenitus are all good options that shouldn't break the bank when constructing your board. A card like Carnage Tyrant is also good but pricy, Gaea's Revenge is a bit more budget-oriented option.

I hope this helps, welcome back to the crazy world of modern!

Love the show! And this is a cool list. Some items I have included:

I Hope you like these ideas.

Hey maxon! I'd certainly be up for doing that alter for you. It'd be $35, since it's both foil and alternate art. As for a list of cards I'm looking for at the moment:

Cavern of Souls
Wurmcoil Engine
Liquimetal Coating
Monastery Mentor
Any and all fetchlands
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (maybe)

Barring that, feel free to make suggestions. I am more than willing to take a look through your binder (Your one here on T/O is out of date). If all else fails, I do still take cash of course. :)

You're still restricted to spending the mana on Eldrazi spells and abilities. This is addressed in one of the rulings notes on Kruphix's Gatherer entry:

4/26/2014 If unused mana in your mana pool has any restrictions or riders associated with it (for example, if it was produced by Cavern of Souls), those restrictions or riders will remain associated with that mana when it becomes colorless.

SideBae on Krenko, Mob Boss

I don't know how mean your meta is, but to take a page from legacy goblins you may want to pack some disruption in the deck. Thorn of Amethyst is a favorite of mine for decks that run 30+ creatures, and you may want to run something like Ruination in addition to your Blood Moon. Trinisphere is good if you want to be a douche. Since you're not running all TOO many artifacts with activated abilities, you could adjust the list to be more conducive to running something like Null Rod. It can be brutal in the right pod.

If you do run Null Rod, it'll turn off your Skullclamp. There are, luckily, non-artifact-based card advantage sources you have access to. Consider Outpost Siege, Experimental Frenzy (maybe), Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Commune with Lava, Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Sensation Gorger, etc. I think you can get away with hating on artifacts without giving up too much. Note that Null Rod does not turn off your Ruby Medallion.

Price of Glory is good. Grafdigger's Cage is arguably the best piece of disruption in EDH right now, and unless I'm missing something it doesn't hurt you at all. I'd definitely run it.

You may want to consider Mass Hysteria instead of Fervor. Being one mana is a big deal, since a quarter of your deck is three-mana and Mass Hysteria will free up t3 to cast a creature. My only reservation is that if you're playing against a mono-green elves strategy, it's not as good a card. 'Course, they frequently run Concordant Crossroads, so it may not matter...

Gamble is a pretty good tutor in mono-red.

Goblin Assassin is a card to consider if you want to go more midrange-y. You can sac the tokens Krenko, Mob Boss makes and effectively have a repeatable edict effect on the table.

You may also want to consider running a few more powerful non-basics. Since you're running Pyroblast, I assume you're in a relatively blue-heavy meta. If you have $50 to blow, Cavern of Souls is a great card. Ancient Tomb is also good, but it's also pricy.

A note on Pyroblast: In mono-red, I think Red Elemental Blast is very, very marginally better. In 99% of cases, it won't matter, but Red Elemental Blast can't get Misdirection-ed or Commandeer-ed onto a non-blue spell. People frequently run Pyroblast over Red Elemental Blast when they run Dack Fayden so that if he ults then they can steal a permanent for {r}. Here, though, I think Red Elemental Blast is technically better. By a tiny, tiny bit.

Faithless Looting gives you a good measure of card-selection. Same with Thrill of Possibility, which is an instant.

Right. That's all I got -- let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck
