Leyline of Punishment

Enchantment

If Leyline of Punishment is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.

Players can't gain life.

Damage can't be prevented.

BotaNickill I also played standard around the time of RTR and Theros. I favoured Black Devotion myself.

Here is a list of cards you might find fun to test with.

1) Leyline of Punishment for the side, Stigma Lasher is a good alternative. I suggest these due to the prevalence of food decks. Gaining life doesn’t generally win the game, but it gives the opponent enough time to get control.

2) Harsh Mentor was a good card for a few years. It was used in traditional burn decks to punish players with lots of fetch-lands, effectively bolting the opponent every-time they cracked a fetch.

3) Vexing Shusher is a card that I have seen in the past in Naya Zoo and Green Stompy lists. Can be good against control or forces the control player to waste a spell to deal with it.

4) Boros Reckoner was a common choice I saw in standard Red Devotion lists. More often than not it will get through due to it’s ability.

5) Robber of the Rich is a cheap alternative to Ragavan. It doesn’t give treasure tokens, but it more or less achieves the same thing.

6) These last two are neat ideas. Shivan Devastator is a new card you probably have seen. It’s a good card that scales with the game and unlike most other “X” spells it has haste and if you ever added Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx it would be a strong combo. One other card I have seen on a few occasions is War Elemental. I played against a burn player sometime back and he had three of these in his deck. Was kind of annoying to deal with due to getting three +1/+1 counters almost every turn.

Atarka's Command, Tibalt, Rakish Instigator, and Leyline of Punishment are all good ways to keep your friend from gaining life from pinging you, then you can bonk him with dragons to the dome.

Orbs of Warding and Witchbane Orb are both excellent for giving you hexproof, making him unable to target you with his Commander's ability.

Three Visits and Farseek are great ramp spells that are pretty cheap that can replace some of your more expensive ramp. I'd also definitely advise picking up the Talisman of Unity in your maybe board.

You have a good density of creatures, in particular your dragons. I'd consider cutting some of the higher cost ones that have no immediate impact on the board to sub out for things like Old Gnawbone, Dragon Tempest, Dragonlord's Servant, Utvara Hellkite and Goldspan Dragon, though. These are things that help your gameplan (Dragon storm) and have immediate impact on the board. Some of those are kinda spensive, but #longtermgoals. Shared Animosity is also a nuts card in tribal decks.

Icbrgr on Dank or Jank?: Sulfuric Vortex

I was scouring my collection the other day searching for some staples when I came across Sulfuric Vortex. I was pretty interested when I got to reading the card kinda thinking it was a combined version of Eidolon of the Great Revel and Leyline of Punishment.

To my disappointment I learned that this card is not Modern legal but got to wondering... if this card was reprinted in an upcoming Standard or Modern Horizons set would it see any play?

councilofautumn - thank you! Academy Rector is always fine but not important for the deck to function, and I keep trying to reduce the number of reserved list cards in my decks.

Jetmir, Nexus of Revels puts a win condition in the command zone and is probably a much better commander overall. However, I think I'll probably leave Samut, Voice of Dissent as the commander for now. Her haste-granting ability is still quite important for sudden death attacks with several of the token swarms, and I really enjoy the complicated untapping puzzles that arise when her activated ability becomes relevant in this deck. Damage prevention is not a problem I've personally come up against, but Skullcrack definitely seems great if that's a strategy in your local meta. You could also play Leyline of Punishment if you want to stick with the enchantment theme.

Other recent cards I'm considering for this deck: Jukai Naturalist, Witty Roastmaster, Eiganjo Uprising and Shigeki, Jukai Visionary.

Is Leyline of Punishment really worth it? I saw that 'prevented' is simply a key word, and it doesn't stop counterspells or blocking. Should I replace it with 3x Monastery Mentor?!

some mid game plays would be ok maybe Shrine of Burning Rage

add maybe 1 Sacred Foundry for 2 Wear / Tear in the SB since you have so many fetches. Also maybe run 3 Skullcrack

Some other budget-ish options include Grim Lavamancer since you have soooo many fetches and Monastery Swiftspear to proc off of the spells your casting. Cut the Elementals for the lavamancer and Swiftspears. Maybe some Goblin Guide if you can afford them.

And I'm assuming b/c you have fetches you could maybe run a few other things maybe Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer?

Some non-budget hits include Leyline of Punishment and Blood Moon.
