Ersatz_Mageta on Modern 8 rack/ control

6 days ago

Love the idea of Flagstones of Trokair. That can certainly be an addition to the manabase, especially now that I've converted it to a creatureless deck with Smallpox.

I know Fatal Push is a great card, but I just don't know about it in this deck. Besides the fetchlands, I don't know what permanents I'll have leaving the field at instant speed. Honestly, I'd be more inclined for something like Cut Down, but I love the slower, more universal approach of Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking. Vindicate is never a dead draw because in the late game you can always just nuke a land and cut off more resources.

My big question once the cards come in will be how many "rack like effects" will be needed to truly achieve the sweet spot. Urza's Saga just feels like a tutor for a rack, which is nice, but also feels out of place for the lack of artifacts.

Why Bone Splinters? It just seems like a bad option for this build. The more Allies you have, the better, so saccing one is kind of painful. AND it's only sorcery speed? Vendetta seems aligned with the deck's strong suits - you don't have any spells like Speaker of the Heavens that has a lifegain threshold, so whatever life you gain is just insurance anyway, right? There's also Path to Exile, Fatal Push, Cut Down, Cast Down, Devour in Shadow... so many more. I know some of those are over $1, but really, the added cost isn't that significant, and there are def plenty of instant speed removal spells for under $1.

Cool deck idea, but needs slight adjustments! - Deathcap Cultivator isn't really working - your deck can get into the graveyard an Instant, a Sorcery and a Creature, but you don't have any way how to get other type into your graveyard, so you'll never have Delirium. Considering that you are lacking any one mana drop, play Ignoble Hierarch instead. - Tear Asunder is great, but it's obvious that your 2 and 4 mana slots are quite full, and 1 mana is rather empty. I suggest looking up ways how to lower it a little. Maybe play only 2, and some mix of Fatal Push, Tragic Slip and Cut Down. - Worldly Tutor is a card disadvantage. I understand that this is a "combo deck", but it's simply easier to play additional combo cards instead. Blood Artist and Slaughter Specialist have great interaction with tokens and cost only 2 mana. - Engulfing Slagwurm is way outside of your mana curve, and has summoning sickness. I would cut it. Your mana curve effectively ends on 4. If you really insist on playing one expensive finisher just as a Worldly Tutor target, play Massacre Wurm instead. - Benefactor's Draught is questionable. Without Vicious Battlerager, it's bad. Maybe just play 1 as a random surprise. - A second Amulet of Safekeeping is a blank draw. I suggest you go down to 2 copies, and instead play a few Trespasser's Curse. - Restless Cottage is pretty much useless as your opponents will likely have tokens for blocking. - It's always best to play a robust mana base. Why play just 10 non-basic lands? Check some modern mana bases for better fixing.

Interesting brew! Some thoughts:

  • Walking Ballista is probably more useful than Endless One as it can win on the turn it’s played instead of just eating a killspell.

  • Cut Down has far too few viable targets to be playable in modern.

  • Not Dead After All feels very awkward here.., something like Unearth would serve you better as it doesn’t require you holding up mana.

  • Ancient Stirrings feels like a great addition for both helping you find your scarecrow, as well as your win conditions (and worst case scenario it grabs you another land). I’d ditch 2 lands (or Thoughtseize) and the Cut Down to get a playset of these in.

  • Golgari Rot Farm feels like a super sub-optimal land in that nothing it does particularly helps you, and everything it does likely messes with your tempo. I’d replace it with a fastland like Blooming Marsh.

Max_Hammer on Can I save my creature …

If I have a creature such as Ornithopter and an opponent casts something like Cut Down, my poor Ornithopter dies. ):

However, if I have Octavia, Living Thesis and cast Opt or something to trigger her ability, targeting my Ornithopter, making it an 8/8, does it save my baby by making it an invalid target or is it a waste?

Does the same work for Dimir Charm or other cards like that?

Lol no worries PyroPenguinss.

I think your gut is right on this one. Cut Down is in that weird space of being narrow, but not too narrow to be bad.

Crow-Umbra thank you for looking over at my list again! I guess not exactly as Obsidian Battle-Axe but similar effect of skipping the equip cost, I'm trying to figure out what to cut for Sigarda's Aid since my brother is no longer using that in his deck. I'm thinking probably Cut Down since I have a good amount of removal right now. Do you think there's anything else I should cut down on or adjust?
