Creeping Tar Pit

Land

Creeping Tar Pit enters the battlefield tapped.

symbol:T: Add or .

: Until end of turn, Creeping Tar Pit becomes a 3/2 blue and black Elemental creature and is unblockable. It's still a land.

I do too. There is a beauty to how both of these flow. They both efficiently establish control they just go about it in slightly different ways. I will be using one of them in a future prize tournament.

Absorb/Dovin's Veto to Undermine/Countersquall

Celestial Colonnade to Creeping Tar Pit

Helm of Obedience works as a win condition in both lists off of different enchantments.

This has been a stellar month for deck design. I'm still goldfishing the Numot list. Winning with animated mana rocks after nuking all lands is awesome.

Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade really trigger me. Those aren't lands you should be running in a constructed deck, even in 5 color I don't like it. Also I skimmed the list and didn't immediately see any payoff for putting lands in your graveyard. So Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are probably not worth it. I find dual lands are generally just better fixing. Some replacements for the above lands that I prefer are: Path of Ancestry, Silverquill Campus, Waterfront District, Skybridge Towers, Fabled Passage, Thriving Moor, Thriving Isle, Thriving Heath, Celestial Colonnade, Creeping Tar Pit.

So I actually did an order the day before you commented and luckily for me a lot of your suggestions are in my order.

To help with draw I’ve added Gravestorm Rhystic Study Verity Circle Waste Not

To help with lands I’ve added Choked Estuary Creeping Tar Pit Jwar Isle Refuge Mistvault Bridge Salt Marsh Submerged Boneyard Sunken Hollow Swiftwater Cliffs Tainted Isle Temple of Epiphany

To help with mana rocks I’ve added Arcane Signet Corrupted Grafstone Dimir Signet Fellwar Stone Izzet Signet Thought Vessel

I’ve been really contemplating making Mirko Vosk my commander due to the lack of red but I really wanted Xander to work.

Hey, good version, nice Sakashima and Quest. You have 1 too many cards, could cut Millikin.

There's a couple of mana rock upgrades to consider that are within your budget. By cutting Charcoal Diamond and Worn Powerstone for Basalt Monolith and Everflowing Chalice then you add an infinite cast combo with Hullbreaker Horror. The combo is Hullbreaker + Sol Ring + Chalice for infinite casts/colorless mana or Hullbreaker + Monolith + Chalice for infinite casts.

Sol or Monolith make enough colorless mana to cast themselves before they're bounced and by casting Chalice for 0 mana you can bounce them resulting in infinite casts/bounce of Sol/Monolith + Chalice. By controlling two or more Hullbreakers thanks to Krothuss then the combo can bounce all your opponents nonland permanents and you can keep doing this on each of your main phases on each of your turns.

If you want to copy big Leviathans with Krothuss then consider Stormtide Leviathan + Wonder? Stormtide is one of the better unblockable Leviathans because he can also disrupt your opponents from swinging back at you. Wonder is helpful to give all creatures you control flying and you have plenty of Islands as well as effects to get it into your graveyard.

A couple of budget land upgrades are: Sunken Hollow and Choked Estuary. Creeping Tar Pit is another upgrade, it's a little more expensive, but neat because Krothuss can copy it when it's an attacking unblockable Elemental.

Good luck with your deck.

ModernMonday there’ve been competitive modern decks in the past that have won just by swinging with a Creeping Tar Pit and/or Snapcaster Mage for ten turns - control doesn’t need to have an obvious wincon card if it can take control of the game well enough.

So I guess the thing you need to figure out, is whether you want to play hard-control, combo, or something in-between. Assuming an in-between strategy, I would personally suggest Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank

I would recommend either going the Murktide Regent or Lurrus of the Dream-Den route; Murderous Rider and the planeswalkers here simply aren't going to keep up with the modern meta.

I would also cut Creeping Tar Pit for Hall of Storm Giants; it dodges Unholy Heat. And speaking of which, I would also strongly recommend playing more of those and less Fatal Pushes to keep up against planeswalkers.

I also think Field of Ruin is pretty bad overall, right now, although I guess Tron is on the rise. I would consider some filter lands, since you've got so many blue and black pips to sort through.

Counters and discard spells also have some tension, but 4x is probably fine.

For SB recommendations: Kozilek's Return is easier to cast than Anger, and instant; and Mystical Dispute is probably better than the Forces, against opposing control decks.

Cheers!
