StoryArcher on Gruul's Closet - A Primer

1 week ago

I'll be honest, I don't love this deck, not as built. I get that a version of it may have done well in Standard, but I think that it would prove much too slow in the current Modern meta. I think the concept is solid enough, but I think you'd have to swap out the majority of the cards to accomplish it. Maybe consider going with a Cascade-based approach (see Bloodbraid Elf) and/or using Collected Company, depending on how you build the deck. There are tons of 3 cmc creatures out there in red and green that are plenty effective and can hit the board for you by turn 2 with ramp, catch a CoCo or cascade with a Bloodbraid.

Having said that all that, within your current framework, I'd consider Ignoble Hierarch over Birds of Paradise. Not saying that it's automatically better, but I'd definitely consider it.

For card advantage I can't tell you how much I love Augur of Autumn and Werewolf Pack Leader. Bonecrusher Giant is just a great card that could work well for you.

There's a lot of other possibilities with a Gruul deck like this, but it would take some discussion to make sure they're within the framework of what you want to do.

contactandylove on Gangsta's Paradise - Henzie "Toolbox" Torre

Zooming through your mana base, I want to know how it runs - it seems like it could benefit from som basics - that said Bojuka Bog is an amazing addition and gives me ideas.

Looking at your creatures, I wonder if your getting the best value from mana dorks like Birds of Paradise , Bloom Tender Ignoble HierarchSomberwald Sage. Sakura-Tribe Elder and Silverback Elder are less risky in terms of board wipes and pay off the similarly, with your land base I think you could be fine running something else.

I absolutely love Braids, Arisen Nightmare in Henzie. What I like most about your deck is the clear focus on end game result. I have a lot of difficulty explicitly thinking about and building around win conditions.

Found some!

Formatting won't allow me to show the retro frame, but all of these do various bits to your end, and have a retro-framed alternative printing. And minus Force of Vigor, most of these are relatively cheap. I hope it helps!

Cool concept!

Cascading Cataracts, Crystal Quarry and Vesuva for filter.

Cathedral of War only land with exalted.

You have the Noble why not the Ignoble Hierarch?

Silent Arbiter Dueling Grounds #2

Timeless Lotus self explanatory.

Andramalech on I don't like the modern card frame

Squee_Spirit_Guide I love this. I think I'll always be a Timmy or Johnny at heart, because it puts a little personality into it for me.

On the topic of card frames, I personally love to see a lot of overlap; like newer cards such as Ignoble Hierarch and Baral, Chief of Compliance that got retro frames. Even stuff like Gaea's Herald that has had multiple arts, I wish we could see more reprisal where we get the older art.. in a newer frame. Good little break to remind me of how far magic has come in terms of development seeing this put together.

Mattydap on speedy Ghalta

Interesting concept for modern, but I am a little confused. Are you trying more to make a Dino deck or are you going all in on a stompy Ghalta plan. I've got a couple ideas, and will try to separate them though it may overlap.

  1. Elvish Mystic is cool and all, but I think if you added either Ignoble Hierarch or Noble Hierarch they would boost the color consistency plus buff the ghalta if it swung alone.

  2. Adding some sort of tutor like Forerunner of the Empire or Eladamri's Call to consistently get ghalta or some other big dino will help, plus if you play the Hierarch it gives you better access to cast it.

  3. I think I've talked myself into saying adding white would prove pretty beneficial to you if you are going the way of the dino cause that also adds Kinjalli's Caller. Also if you end up adding the tutors you could have overall less ghaltas in the deck to make room for other tutorable threats like Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Zacama, Primal Calamity

  4. It wouldn't be the worst idea to add some sort of draw engine into the deck like The Great Henge just so you have some more late game potential.

  5. Interaction like Reckless Rage would make room for attackers while also getting rid of threats. While something like Cinderclasm would help wipe the board while also activating your enrage creatures.

  6. If you end up adding Forerunner please consider adding Polyraptor it was a combo I used to play back in standard and I'd love knowing it could be seeing play in modern.

  7. Ummmm, yeah thats all I can really come up with off the top of my head right now sorry that its really messy, but if you take anything away from this adding white is my most important point. You'd probably have to change up the mana base if you did that though so you do you.

wallisface on Attune with Constrictor

I’m worried 7 cards costing 4-or-more-mana is too high, especially considering you don’t have a particularly high land count, nor particularly efficient ramp.

Personally i’d swap one copy of one of those big mana cards out for a 23rd land, and then replace Attune with Aether for Ignoble Hierarch to give you some stronger early acceleration.

wallisface on what is my purpose?

Some thoughts:

  • any deck running Asmo should be playing the full playset of both it and The Underworld Cookbook. I would suggest against stuff like Goblin Engineer to assemble these pieces as it’s slow and easy to disrupt. Same goes for the cat-cauldron combo, run a playset of both or none at all.

  • It definately feels like you’re doing waay too much here, and it’s going to cause your deck to function very clumsily. I would suggest ditching all of Old Gnawbone, Shimmer Dragon, Goldspan Dragon and Hellkite Tyrant (they’re all painfully expensive mana-wise, and none of them really do enough. Imo you need your payoffs to capitalise on what your deck is doing, like Sieve and Troll-King do… just run more of those), as well as Goblin Engineer (adds more moving parts to an already complicated archetype), Magda, Brazen Outlaw (again, adds more unnecessary clutter), Ignoble Hierarch (if you need more mana after the Goose, then your curve is too high. Also, your curve is too high), and Tireless Tracker (it’s not helping your gameplan in any way that’s meaningful).

  • i would also suggest ditching Chord of Calling - if you’re running mostly playsets, as you should be, this card becomes more clumsy in this deck than helpful. Something like Unearth will prove to be much more useful at keeping stuff on-board.

  • assuming you’re wanting Asmo to perform her best, you really need a playset of Ovalchase Daredevil to help profit from the discard triggers.

  • have you considered Chatterfang, Squirrel General? Might be useful seeing as you’re leaning quite heavily into green.
