Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Kazierts on Mardu Unearthly Blink [Budget/Casual/Primer]

I actually didn't think about having a Soulherder variant. It would probably make thing more consistent than having to rely on Ephemerate and Astral Drift. I'll probably play around with an Esper version of this deck somewhere in the future then.

My only concern with Street Wraith is it's price. In dollars it's very cheap. However, in reais(Brazilian currency) this card isn't that budget. Which is kinda of a concern because Canyon Slough isn't that budget either. Still, I can't deny that the Wraith would be pretty good in this deck.

The only reason I'm not running Viscera Dragger is because it doesn't do enough. It's actually pretty interesting that it can trigger the Drift and has Unearth itself, but it has no utilitiy besides that. Extractor Demon is pretty big and has evasion. First-Sphere Gargantua is also pretty big while providing card draw. Rotting Rats helps to fill the graveyard and can work as disruption. Compared to them, the Dragger doesn't seem that useful. Still, I can see an argument to include it given its double duty.

Thanks Daveslab2022, I've definitely always considered myself a Johnny at heart. It feels suuuuper sweet to unearth a First-Sphere Gargantua and get in a big swing, then emerge an It of the Horrid Swarm from it for one, and I get to jam all those enchantments on them both times!

At first I was just thinking about I could I do to not just use Unearth straight, as you said. However, I slowly started to think about Ephemerate and it seems like a great ideia! I wouldn't even change the core ideia of the deck.

Right now, I'm thinking about losing some of the raw power by cutting things like Hell's Thunder and Sedraxis Specter and maybe go the more controlling side, with things like Rotting Rats for hand control, Extractor Demon as maybe a one or two of since unearth kinda combos with his ability to mill which could allow me to fuel my graveyard, First-Sphere Gargantua for repeatable card draw, Grixis Slavedriver for token generation and, of course, Anathemancer , altough the later I think is more suitable for the sideboard.

Throughout the day I'll be thinking about how to make a Mardu overhaul to this deck.

Thanks for the awesome tips, Funkydiscogod!

Great deck! I too have been quite interested in the potential of First-Sphere Gargantua . I quite like your inclusion of Kaya's Ghostform . It's quite brilliant in conjunction with Gargantua. May I suggest you consider Grixis Slavedriver ? I've found that he often works as copies 5-8 of Gargantua, e.g. a large threat with unearth that brings value even if immediately answered.

I think Bardel Entertainment will do a pretty alright job but where is Axis Animation the team behind the War of the Spark trailers? The attention to detail was pretty amazing at bringing out everything we could see in the cards, such as Bolas for example. It be a disservice to the show not to capitalize on all the amazing art the game has to offer. Nothing against Bardel Entertainment but The Dragon Prince, Teen Titans Go, and Rick and Morty don’t nessesarily scream I bring First-Sphere Gargantua , Secluded Glen , Nyxathid and so on to life. Sorta feel that as I write this it’s a way of keeping my expectations low. Story and Game play in MTG’s past have always had their ups and down but the art has always been amazing (for the most part Circle of Protection: Art ). Just hope they capitalize on a pillar of what makes Magic what it is.
