Crashing Footfalls


Suspend 4— (Rather than cast this card from your hand, pay and exile this with four time counters on this. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast this without paying the mana cost.)

Create two 4/4 green Rhino creature tokens with trample.

to_regatha_and_beyond The original version of the deck was a Living End deck that sideboarded in Crashing Footfalls! :D

I am also butthurt over Modern horizons/universes beyond introducing cards that never touch standard... Modern is becoming the new legacy we have without the prestige of owning original magic we will simply have to accomidate spin-off products now apparently.

Modern was never a perfect format and was pleaged with problematic cards for YEARS like Simian Spirit Guide/Mox Opal/Faithless Looting.... people say competitive magic was 2 ships passing in the night well... yeah there was a lot of unfair uniteractive nonsense (that were well known kinda like how The One Ring is a known issue but the banlist says otherwise)... those cards got banned with modern horizons though... then people say "thank god we have interaction like Force of Negation now"... yeah it feels really good when used in the context of Violent Outburst and Crashing Footfalls... or getting hit with Grief with hiw that's being used... gross.

As much as I share your frustration though and absolutely hate Modern being a soft rotating format... it really isn't all bad news... I also brew my own decks and have taken them to the LGS and yes I lose... but I still felt like I had a chance (if that makes any sense).

I'd be a liar if I said I was forever done with Modern. Despite the frustration it really is the best 60 card format imo... just as before modern horizons it is not without its flaws but I do think that it could be time to shift focuse into Pioneer for me anyway.

Well cheers until Modern Horizons 3/Dr. WHO/Songebob/Diablo 5 sets release!

In terms of relevant decks... idk maybe izzet clashes with cascade so I doubt it would go into Living End/Crashing Footfalls...

Maybe it's something good for oldschool Storm style decks but I honestly am very unfamiliar with that deck and not very sure if it does anything to help it out from obscurity.

@SpammyV Getting into Premodern is an interesting idea... I haven't really thought about or looked into that format before. Arent Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Mystic Sanctuary, Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Tibalt's Trickery, Oko, Thief of Crowns and Field of the Dead all Banned in Modern? Not saying that Omnath, Locus of Creation or Thassa's Oracle wouldn't be powerful; but most of what you said has already been addressed as problematic cards... I dont know if its a fact or just a rumor but I remember hearing when standard was going super crazy powerful WOTC said they were giving up on playtesting cards (at least for impact on eternal formats) before releasing them and would just ban them if they became problematic.

I agree with Modern Horizons providing good/crucial interaction... Force of Negation/Solitude are great... but when the opponent uses Violent Outburst and has a Force of Negation to protect it and I'm dealing with Crashing Footfalls/Living End I get big mad and big sad lol.... not that there wasn't nonsense before Modern Horizons or that I could say this theory format would be better in that regard; but the pursuit/goal of this concept was really just an opportunity to give the Original Modern a second chance to continue being what is was initially meant to be... sure we wouldn't have Solitude but eventually we got March of Otherworldly Light.

wallisface I agree regarding Fury, it can be a bit hairy. We do run 3x Dromoka's Commands (the fight mechanic ignores double strike) and chump-blocking a non-flyer isn't generally a challenge for this deck, so on the whole I usually prefer the ETB-less Fury. Tossing a red spell to get it out is a major downside for the opponent, and if we're trading hits then we only need to get a couple +1/+1's onto our Hushbringer before we're breaking even with it. But I do agree there's a potential risk depending on board state.

What I've found is that, whenever Hushbringer is weak, Archon of Emeria is strong. So much so that I'm thinking of replacing the one-off Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in the sideboard with a fourth Archon of Emeria (I don't really think this deck needs the Kozilek anyways).

For example, against Crashing Footfalls, Archon of Emeria completely hoses all cascade effects since they can't cast their "free" spell, which includes 4xShardless Agents and 4xViolent Outbursts, and means that when Crashing Footfalls finally casts off suspend they also can't do anything else that turn but sit on their hands. And without Fury's ETB, it's very hard for them to remove the Archon of Emeria.

It also hoses Murktide as mentioned before, I think that's pretty common knowledge.

For Underworld Breach it hoses Ledger Shredder, Underworld Breach (since escape counts as a cast, they can't use it), Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer's dash is pretty well hosed since it counts as a cast, Expressive Iteration while not totally hosed is definitely hampered, Mishra's Bauble becomes pretty much a dead draw. Only Teferi, Time Raveler really helps the deck but imo it's not enough.

Domain Zoo is one of my tougher match-ups. We do run 3xBoseiju, Who Endures to destroy the triomes, and we have a lot of vigilance which is helpful against aggro. Still I'd probably swap in our Runed Halos in that matchup, in addition to our Hopeful Initiates and Burrenton Forge-Tenders.

Anyways I appreciate the constructive criticisms. Hopefully with time I'll get the list tightened up more.

Some examples of As Foretold decks are here : example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4. You'll note that the common theme is that As Foretold is only useful for cheating out cards like Ancestral Vision, Crashing Footfalls, and Restore Balance. These decks also use stuff like Electrodominance and Finale of Promise to ensure they're able to cast those no-mana spells reliably.

I don't think there are many Oracle's Vault decks out there because the card is just bad, and requires a lot of support to even remotely do anything - on top of that it's super-slow and super-easy to disrupt. I found this deck that plays it, though the deck itself looks pretty janky, and i'm not convinced it would be any good, especially for the amount of $$$ it costs.

There won't be any decks out there that use both of those cards together, as they're both trying to achieve very different goals (and on top of that Oracle's Vault isn't really very playable).

  • the deck is 102 cards, which is waay above the ideal 60, and will mean that the deck runs super inconsistently, as well as being much weaker. Your first goal should be getting this down to 60.

  • your mana curve is currently waaaay too high, and will lead to this deck running very clumsily/slowly. Modern decks typically can’t justify running more than 3-4 cards costing 4 mana, and run nothing above this value. You’ve got a whopping 31 cards costing 4-or-more mana, which will just make this deck unplayable. Lower the curve!

  • Your deck is too unfocused. If you’re trying to run a mill deck, you need to be all-in on that plan - importantly not running any creatures/spells that don’t work towards that goal (optimal mill looks something close to this). I would suggest either ditching everything non-mill related, or ditching everything mill related - you can’t go “half-in” on that strategy or you’ll never achieve it.

  • You have a LOT of pointless cards in the deck, in that you’re not supporting them. Mystic Forge isn’t good unless a deck is almost entirely cheap artifacts, which yours isn’t. As Foretolds only real purpose is to cheat on no-mana cards like Ancestral Vision or Crashing Footfalls, which your not doing (i assume your deck is trying to dump extra counters on that card, but that’s a LOT of time & effort for no real payoff). Suspend really wants stuff like Teferi, Time Raveler in play to prevent your opponent recasting the card, but you have no such effect.

  • your bounce cards serve you no real purpose other that giving yourself card-disadvantage.

So in short, you need to lower your card-count to a normal quantity, and drastically lower your curve to something playable. You also need to try any focus your deck around one coherent strategy instead of 5.

Icbrgr on Minor Misstep

I am wondering what you all think about Minor Misstep?

At first I just thought this was just Mental Misstep without the phyrexian mana cost... but then I noticed that it counters spells costing or less... granted that's not paying life for cost/cant be included in literally any deck...but the flexibility to counter 0-1 mana value spells seems really strong. Almost to the point where if your in why wouldn't you run a few copies?... it can hit Chalice of the Void/Crashing Footfalls... Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer/Aether Vial/Sigarda's Aid....lots of stuff.

Am I over glorifying this card?
