I've been hoping for fireblast for a few horizons now,

With all the free spells in modern now, why the hell not.

Would Goblin Welder be too far?

I think another free creature like one of the kobolds or Phyrexian Walker would be interesting.

The Fiery Confluence cycle would be cool and I don't think would affect much,

(I'm basically using that as a placeholder because there's been a couple commander-product cards printed over the last few years I've thought would be cool in modern but I can't remember any of them right now)

I would love to see pyroblast but I don't know if they'll feel obligated to print hydro too,

Personally, I would also love to see an interesting combo piece like Helm of Obedience,

And maybe something weird for combo/control like Arcane Denial.

I think a second Gravecrawler might be interesting and hopefully wouldn't lead to superlong turns,

I would LOVE a two-mana Doran, the Siege Tower more than any other card,

I think a strictly-better Wild Nacatl / Kird Ape wouldn't hurt nobody,

And I think Chain Lightning would be sweet.

I KIND of want that legacy infect spell that gains the opponent life, but that might be too far. Maybe Berserk? Deaths shadow wouldn't mind

I think there's design space for a bauble-like enchantment, but unholy heat kind of ruined that.

An electromancer with ward would be sweet, but wizards would never encourage storm gameplay so maybe with the text "you can only cast two spells a turn"?

Also, I think back to basics would be awesome, I don't care what would happen.

Peacekeeper's Dictate


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, each creature that player controls deals damage to itself equal to its power. If any creature dealt damage this way dies, its controller creates a 0/2 colourless golem artifact creature token with defender.

MaRo's teaser for March of the Machine mentions a Legendary Creature - Ape Dinosaur Turtle, which will propably be Kogla, the Titan Ape + Yidaro, Wandering Monster. Create the card you expect that to be, following the pattern of the already previewed dual legends for that set.

I can see how coat of arms can be difficult to track. I think if you don’t want coat of arms then shared animosity is easier to track. I will say that I am wondering why Dusk / Dawn is in the deck If your deck has +1/+1 counters you will quickly run into it taking out your creatures as well. I run Dusk / Dawn in my Doran, the Siege Tower deck. I made my deck explicitly so I don’t have counters and it’s more populate base but that’s just me.

baddabiiing - Interesting deck! I wanted to make a treefolk tribal a while back around Doran, the Siege Tower but looks like you found a more interesting usage.

You have been playing the deck for a while and feel like it is losing its competitive edge, what in your opinion are the weaknesses of the deck? How is it getting beat? Full disclosure, I am still fairly new to MTGO so take any of my thoughts with a grain of salt because I am limited experience.

My initial thoughts on looking on the deck...

  • 28 creatures so high probability of Collected Company being used to its potential and they all tend to have high toughness to maximize Doran's theme. The only creature Collected Company will miss is Siege Rhino...still good odds for Collected Company.

  • You are running 4xDoran, the Siege Tower along with 4xTreefolk Harbinger, and 4xCollected Company so a total of 12 ways to get him onto the field to get his ability going. Do you really need 4xAssault Formation then to make it 16 ways? If you had more defender creatures in the deck you would have an argument for it but it feels like overkill.

  • On the other hand, you are running a single copy of Path to Exile for your only removal spell although there are more in the sideboard aside other removal cards. With that said, I feel like this deck really lacks any ability to remove threats that could rain on your parade making it so that as long as your opponent can just block your "tough" creatures, they can just continue setting up their strategy unopposed. My guess is this is why you feel the deck has lost its competitive edge.

Why did you think of Phenax when Arcades, the Strategist and Doran, the Siege Tower exist lol

Preemar, the Henge-Supreme

Legendary Creature - Wall

Whenever a Wall you control blocks, it gains indestructible until end of turn if you control five or more Walls.

Wall creatures you control get +0/+2 for each color among other Walls you control.


Make a creature that counters enchantments, please

Why no Aether Vial? You have a enough creatures and enough draw that I think you'd want to go wide.

Then, I'd find an alt- way to make them a problem... because an opp can just sit on his/her spells and use them for Assault Formation, High Alert, Arcades and let their big baddies eat your walls. The new Catapult Fodder  Flip could help but it's in black. But that could take us back to Junk and Doran, the Siege Tower... and that gives us Unearth to keep bringing it back when they have answers.

Looks like I a found a new brew to toy with. Good luck w/yours.
