ConstantVigilance, I'd recommend Ingest as well. That way when it deals combat damage to your opponent, they exile the top card of their library. This in turn means when you cast your next one, you have a target in exile to work with to gain the 3 life :)

Maybe make it cost for the added ability and synergy?

Almost feels like a rare at this point. I'd personally recommend it be more of a hard-to-get uncommon. I know back during Kaladesh / Aether Revolt, barely anyone got Fatal Push despite being an uncommon. That was one of the reasons it was so expensive back then - it had the same pull rate as a rare, despite not being one.

Cool deck. Fatal Push as a sideboard card?

A fellow modern infect player, I see. I love mono-black infect, even though I play UG infect.

You run a lot of lands, and your infect creatures have a high CMC. I think Cathedral of War is a really smart include. Here are the edits I am suggesting.


3x Plague Stinger

3x Ichorclaw Myr

3x Fatal Push


2x Snow-Covered Plains

2x Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon

3x Mind Stone

2x Lashwrithe

In addition to this, I might cut a few cards out of the sideboard for 2x Dismember.

Hello, your deck has some potential. Just some advices:

  1. I think you should replace Grasp of Darkness for Dismember, that -1/-1 extra could be truly useful for some tanky creatures. Also, you can distribute those mana as you want. That extra mana/life is worth of being paid.

  2. Victim of Night for something like Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, etc.

  3. Cordial Vampire is a must since Modern Horizons was released. You must play it. It doesnt only go well with your removal, it goes well with chomp blocks, or even if you consider that Gatekeeper of Malakir that I mentioned before, It could be truly awesome.

  4. There are some planeswalker that could fit truly well in this deck, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, you could make some nasty combos like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord + Bloodlord of Vaasgoth at turn 3; Liliana, the Last Hope can help you to get some of your vampires in safe goal, even if you put that Cordial Vampire mentioned before, you could be buffing your vampires meanwhile removing some tiny things, like mana fixers.

  5. Asylum Visitor seems pretty week and have a hard condition in some decks, you could sustitute it for Phyrexian Arena or something annexed to tribal deck.

  6. Some cards like Urge to Feed, Shadow Alley Denizen, Bloodghast, Thoughtseize, Dash Hopes, Collective Brutality, could be some cards interesting to contemplate.

tabbs33 on UNBLOCKABLE + X = U DIE

I'd recommend altering your deck's hubs - for whatever reason, Birthing Pod is one of them.

I'd highly recommend making your deck 60 cards, cutting down on a lot of creatures (30 is a ton for Modern decks!), and instead increase the number of lands (23-25) and put in a whole ton of mana ramp. Spells with X really need large values of X to pay off. In terms of creatures to cut, I'd start with Endless One since it's just a vanilla creatures, Genesis Hydra since you're very likely to only hit creatures with X (and the creature will come into play with 0 counters if it's put into play this way), and possibly Wildborn Preserver since you'll constantly have to strike a balance with your mana between the creature you're casting and the Preserver. I'd also cut Nourishing Shoal as life gain doesn't really do that much if you're behind on board (other than delay the inevitable).

I'd recommend Arbor Elf along with Utopia Sprawl, Castle Garenbrig, and even possibly Llanowar Elves, Rampant Growth, and Cultivate for mana ramp. Hardened Scales, Winding Constrictor, and Metallic Mimic are all efficient cards that make your X creatures bigger pretty much for free. Walking Ballista is also one of the best X spells in Modern...if your budget can afford it. For your sideboard, definitely Veil of Summer, it's exactly what you need to protect all your creatures from Fatal Push.

Honestly, this deck reminds me a lot of the Hardened Scales decks floating around Modern. I'd recommend taking a look at those decks as I think you'd find them fun!

TriusMalarky on Modern Lurrus Prison

1 week ago

So, here's what I'm thinking:

Spreading Seas

Pyroclasm(2 copies or so)

Fatal Push(duh)

Lightning Bolt(duh)

Galvanic Blast

Aether Spellbomb

Necrogen Spellbomb and Scroll of Griselbrand

Nihil Spellbomb

Seal of Fire

Seal of Removal

Pyrite Spellbomb

Some Signets

Maybe Duress

Lantern of Insight and the mill friends, specifically Ghoulcaller's Bell

Thought Scour for consistency

Artificer's Intuition is a literal Survival of the Fittest here.

Whir of Invention

Ratchet Bomb because repeatable specified wraths is fun.

Shrine of Burning Rage and Shrine of Loyal Legions might be interested but their value is dubious.

Grave Peril can also control the board.

Locket of Yesterdays can help reduce mana costs of reanimating spellbombs.

I wonder if I can cast Lotus Bloom from my yard or if Lurrus of the Dream-Den doesn't allow that.

Os Mox Tantalite worth running?

Pithing Needle seems great.

Renegade Map for land draw?

tabbs33 on The Dark Mill

1 week ago

Is this deck intended to be casual or competitive? Budget or no? I'd recommend changing the hubs for your deck to help everyone give more targeted feedback and to expose the deck to a broader audience.

That being said, here are cards I'd recommend based off of Mill decks I've seen on MTGO/online (not taking into account card cost): Shelldock Isle as it basically nets you an extra card/free spell

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds to trigger Hedron Crab over and over

Visions of Beyond because it's basically Ancestral Recall for Mill

Search for Azcanta  Flip to continue to dig up Mill spells

Surgical Extraction/Extirpate/Ashiok, Dream Render/Nihil Spellbomb to hit key pieces your opponent needs (e.g. Uro, Kroxa, etc.)

Field of Ruin to hit your opponent's important lands

Crypt Incursion as a way to help you survive

Snapcaster Mage to flashback your Glimpses, Visions, etc.

Drown in the Loch, Fatal Push to serve as cheap, flexible answers to your opponent's threats

Inquisition of Kozilek,Thoughtseize to get your opponent's threats before they become threats

Breaking / Entering as a maybeboard card if you really need more efficient mill

Here are some other thoughts I had:

-You have a fair number of expensive cards in your deck, but you only have 20 lands. I have a feeling that your expensive cards will be stuck in your hand as you struggle to draw enough lands to play them (which will only be exacerbated by the fact that you have 64 cards in your deck). Even still, you'll probably want 21-23 lands in your deck. With that the average game of Modern lasts about 5 turns - can you successfully mill your opponent out in that time? If not, you'll want to trim/remove the cards that don't have a significant impact by that time. For example, I would consider replacing the following:

Curse of the Bloody Tome: comes out on turn 3 and you'll probably get 1-2 triggers out of it.

Patient Rebuilding: very variable and you may not even get any triggers out of it.

Keening Stone: you probably won't be able to cast this card.

Traumatize: most of the time this will probably only be marginally better than another Glimpse or perhaps even worse! I'd recommend doing some playtesting with your deck to see on average how many cards you mill from your opponent by turn 5. Also consider that opponents will be thinning their decks with fetchlands, Arcum's Astrolabe, and Mishra's Bauble.

Consuming Aberration/Nemesis of Reason: again, won't have an impact until turn 6, which may be too late.

Increasing Confusion: this card is very deceptive in that it actually isn't that mana efficient. If you flash it back on turn 5, then it's the exact same thing as Glimpse!

Mind Grind: same thing except for Mind Funeral - at 6 mana, this card does the same thing that Mind Funeral does for 3! -If you can afford it, definitely run 4x Glimpse, 4x Archive Trap, and 4x Mesmeric Orb. Those are your most powerful cards that you'll want every game.

-You'll also want dual lands, like Darkslick Shores, Drowned Catacomb, Watery Grave, etc. This will really help prevent you from getting mana screwed by drawing too many of one basic. Also, fetchlands are Hedron Crab's best friend!

Mill is always a fringe deck in the Modern metagame as most decks will just out-value and outrace you, which is a shame because I always find Mill so fun to play! I hope all this helps you out and I hope I didn't come off as mean/rude. I'm genuinely trying to help you out with your deck so you can win more and have more fun with it!

jaymc1130 on Yorion or Lurrus for best ...

2 weeks ago

I've been playing a fair amount of Modern with companions to get a feel for the format with their inclusion and although the prevailing opinion seems to be that Lurrus is the best performing companion I'm not so certain it's that clear cut.

I'm actually starting to trend toward Yorion being the best companion in Modern.

The 80 card restriction is less restrictive, and the downside of a larger deck is very negligible in the majority of cases. Both companions lend themselves very well to a value based game plan approach, but Lurrus is limited to a single use of a single card once per turn while Yorion flickers whole boards and can get wildly out of control with flicker looping generating 4, 5, 6 extra cards a turn with scry effects, token generation, no downside planeswalker activtions, etc. Yorion is also much tougher to kill off due to immunity to Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, etc.

Then there's some more recent tournament data that suggests Yorion decks are slightly out performing Lurrus decks at the top level of play.

I honestly think this might be the more potent of these two companions for Modern.
