Dark Ritual Discussion

legendofa on Modern Reanimator, second draft

1 day ago

TransMarx Thanks for the thoughts! This is a different direction than what I've been going in, but I'll give it a try and see if it works better.

I've never dropped below 3 Archon of Cruelty , that thing is insane when you don't pay full price. I've been looking for replacements for It That Betrays (killer with haste, vulnerable without it), and both Ashen Rider and Terastodon were on the short list. It's probably time to make that change.

Bone Shards is great and worthy of at least a sideboard slot, if not main deck. Liliana of the Veil comes down when this version of the deck wants to be dropping its finishers, but I'll try it alongside your suggested line. I tried Unmarked Grave for a while, but there was only enough space for so many MV2 graveyard fillers, and Collective Brutality and Thrilling Discovery did enough in initial testing to make the cut. I'll revisit it, since it will help reliability, but in the end it's a one-trick pony. If Dark Ritual ever shows up in Modern (not gonna happen), Unmarked Grave would be jammed in immediately.

TriusMalarky on Phyrexian Arena

It's the kind of card that does put in the work, but it's gotta be built around correctly(much like any card draw)

Necro is used sort of as a combo piece but also as a massively effective draw engine.

Arena is used to guarantee you two cards played per rotation, which is great . . . if that's your gameplan. It's also really underwhelming in EDH where it's trivial to assemble ways to draw 2, 3 or even 4 extra cards a rotation.

I'll take a cEDH perspective here. In cEDH, this is unplayable, because

It also compares badly to every other good card draw spell:

  • Mystic Remora comes down turn one and either stalls the other players, giving you the ability to pull ahead, or is basically Ancestral Recall at worst.

  • Rhystic Study can come down turn one with Crypt and turn two with basically every other rock. It also draws absurd amounts of cards.

  • Wheel of Misfortune or any other wheel allows you to jam a bunch of rocks in play and then reload to 7 on turn 1, meaning you just pull ahead pretty effectively.

  • Sylvan Library is just good.

It's good, but not THAT good.

DemMeowsephs on Felisa (Testing)

Glad to hear it! Yeah sheesh I didn't even realize it was that much I remember it being like fifteen bucks a little while back, that's kind of insane- but hmm. Oh holy crap the synergy with Teysa Karlov and Felisa is kind of crazy, just noticed that too. But here are some ones I would recommend cutting, though if they are fun/interesting to you or serve a purpose I missed, I could obviously be wrong:

Those are just some I see off the top of my head, if you look a little deep and really question how many times you play a card and utilize it, you might find some more! Sometimes its hard to cut a card you enjoy playing even if its fun so I'd recommend having a list of cards you can add for fun, and a list for effectiveness so you can play both sides! Hope this helps, I'm glad some suggestions are useful to you, and I'll let you know if I see any more possible cuts! Feel free to ask for any more assistance or if you have any questions I'd be glad to help.

Dark Ritual is a good source of ramp as well I would try cutting Lotus Petal for it just too test it out its a cheap card so its worth a shot. Valakut Awakening  Flip is a good "wheel" effect for your concept as it does not benefit your opponents you choose which cards you get rid of and it puts them on the bottem of our deck completely getting around our own graveyard hate, for this I personally would take out "land tax" as I am not a fan of the card because for me past the first turn it loses alot of value, however completely up too you.

I was happy that evoke was returning, then I read the cards. I was hoping for janky midrange, not Dark Ritual into Mind Twist . But more efficient. And a creature so you can't spell pierce.

I think maybe taking into account the cost of Dark Ritual would be nice, so making the mana cost instead. This would make it more similar to Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual . Just so it keeps Dark Ritual ahead compared to this card, and also doesn't let you increase your mana to quickly in a color that benefits from lots of mana.

Why do you "still believe a green version of Dark Ritual would be great" against all the factors you mentioned?

I like the name, but I don't think the effect needs to exist

I know that red and black are the colors of temporary mana acceleration (i.e., Dark Ritual and Seething Song ), whereas green is the color of permanent mana acceleration (i.e., Rampant Growth or Explosive Vegetation ), but I still believe that a green version of Dark Ritual would be great, so here is such a card:
