It’s pretty confusing, but it is a “Doomsday” combo that can be set up in Turn 3 and start/kill Turn 4.

Turn 3: Cast Recross the Paths, as the card resolves you reveal your entire library to show there are no lands. Since the card says “…put the rest of the cards on the bottom of your library in any order…”, you get to order the deck to:

After stacking your deck, you clash with your opponents and reveal Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, put it on the bottom of your library, and put Recross the Paths back into your hand.

Turn 4:

In your draw step, draw and reveal Reforge the Soul to trigger miracle and cast it. Draw:

Now we should have one untapped land, follow the steps below:

  1. Play Shatterskull, the Hammer Pass  Flip untapped
  2. Cast Pact of the Titan
  3. Cast Infernal Plunge, sacrificing the 4/4 Giant; 3 Red floating, 1 lands Untapped
  4. Cast Pyromancer Ascension; 2 Red Floating
  5. Cast Manamorphose, add 1 Red and 1 Green, draw the third Manamorphose; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  6. Cast second Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, put 1 counter on it, add 1 Red 1 Green, draw the fourth Manamorphose; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  7. Cast third Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, put the second counter on it, add 1 Red 1 Green, draw Bala Ged Recovery  Flip; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  8. Cast fourth Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack

    2 Red 2 Green floating

  9. Cast Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack, resolve both 6 Red 2 Green floating

  10. Cast Bala Ged Recovery  Flip targeting Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack. The copy will target Desperate Ritual, resolve both spells 4 Red 1 Green Floating

  11. Cast Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack

    • The first will add 2 Red and draw the second Bala Ged Recovery  Flip
    • The second will add 2 Green and draw anything 4 Red 3 Green Floating
  12. Cast Desperate Ritual with Splice Onto Arcane with the second Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and add a copy. Resolve both add 12 Red 12 Red 3 Green Floating

  13. Cast second Bala Ged Recovery  Flip targeting Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension, make a copy targeting a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, resolve both 9 Red 2 Green Floating

  14. Repeat step 12 to add 12 Red mana 19 Red 2 Green Floating

  15. Cast Bala Ged Recovery  Flip to return Manamorphose and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip

    17 Red 1 Green Floating

  16. Cast Manamorphose, add 4 green draw 2;

    15 Red 5 Green Floating

  17. Repeat step 13, return Desperate Ritual and a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip

At this point, steps 12-17 will loop and lead to an arbitrarily large amount of mana and card draw. With that you can do a bunch of wonky things including:

For the record, I don’t play belcher, but I learned the combo after getting belched so many times haha

How do you deal withLeyline of Sanctity or similar effects? Very interested in the deck though

  • I dont think there are any bounce lands legal in modern but you want affects like this in you deck Murasa Rootgrazer. Im aware you dont want green and want it mono white so i would recommend cycles of these cards Wildfield Borderpost there's one for every 2 color combo, and could help if you want to splash a color or want something for your sideboard.
  • Another tech you could consider is Dryad Arbor its a land and a creature so you could make a loop that bounces it back to you hand and play it. It would also go off of Emeria, The Sky Ruin pretty well. They are like 3$ a copy so not very cheap.
  • you might not need Leyline of Sanctity unless your playing against a burn like deck or maybe some discard deck.
  • There is an issue with Knight of the White Orchid and running 25 lands. Odds are by turn 3 youll probably have 3 lands in hand but its no guarantee that your opponent will. So it will most likely just be a 2/2 with first strike which isnt bad, but isnt great.
  • I dont think you need Steppe Lynx Its an 0/1 on everyone elses turn, and you dont need to be the agressor you have the late game with you other creatures. If you need to stall i recommend wall of omens.
  • Eternity Vessel is a cool card but its draining your budget and lets assume you have 6 mana what would you rather cast Eternity Vessel or Admonition Angel?
  • Fabled Passage is expensive budget wise, so it might be worth considering to see if we can get a better synergy out that money. Being we cant get it consistently. The deck doesnt have enough card draw, tutoring, or filtering to get it. You might get more out of cards like Wildfield Borderpost
  • This might seem like a meme but its pretty solid Mana Tithe. No one sees it coming, and can be back breaking.
  • White has good hate cards like Stony Silence and Rest in Peace however what graveyard and artifacts are killing us? also RIP is a anti-synergy with Emeria, The Sky Ruin. These cards can strain your budget and arent always as helpful as you think.
  • Anyways cool deck idea havent seen mono white landfall and hope this helps. Ping me anytime you need help with a deck

legendofa on Bringing Turbo Fog to the …

2 weeks ago

TL;DR: I want to make Turbo Fog better, but I'm not sure how.

I like the philosophy of Turbo Fog, and I've had some success with it in FNMs and casual tournaments. I'm trying to push it up into at least low-tier competitive, but I think it's gotten left pretty far behind. It hasn't really gotten any new toys recently to get it above casual tables.

Basically, Turbo Fog is a control deck that tries to avoid taking any damage by neutralizing the opponent's attacking creatures and avoiding or removing harmful spells. It's a similar line of thought to Lantern Control or prison decks.

Starting with the Fog part, there are a few ways to go. Spore Frog and Kami of False Hope are cheap creatures that are easily searched and recycled, but there aren't many other creature options. The old-school method is instants like Darkness and Ethereal Haze, but while they have more options, they don't have as many ways to search or recur them, with Isochron Scepter and Snapcaster Mage probably being the best. Finally, there are the enchantments and artifacts. Leyline of Sanctity takes care of a lot of the non-damaging effects, Ghostly Prison is good but offers a workaround, and Ensnaring Bridge needs a little too much dedicated support, in my experience. Turbo Fog isn't big on emptying its hand.

Next up is the Turbo. The traditional draw engines are Howling Mine and Phyrexian Arena, and Stormfist Crusader is a mixture of those two. The Royal Scions and Jace Beleren provide some Planeswalker support. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria does pretty much everything a Turbo Fog deck wants.

For removal, I generally look at all-purpose stuff, like Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, and Counterspell. The Fog effects provide pseudo-removal against attackers, so it's the utility creatures and other effects that pose problems. All the same, a good Supreme Verdict is always welcome. Engineered Explosives and Nevinyrral's Disk are other mass removal options.

Finally, and most importantly, the win condition. The three main approaches I've seen and/or tried are draw damage, semi-passive mill, and simply attacking with a big creature. For the draw damage, there's cards like Fevered Visions, Runeflare Trap, Fate Unraveler, basically anything that might see use in a Wheels EDH deck. Semi-passive mill comes from symmetrical drawing, while recycling cards through Blessed Respite or Elixir of Immortality. For big creatures, my headliners are Kefnet the Mindful and Sigarda, Host of Herons--5 power, evasive, and hard to kill. Honorable mention goes to Nexus of Fate, just to completely lock out the opponent.

I've poked through a lot of cards and tried a lot of variations, but I'm still not sure I'm not overlooking something. It's very color-heavy, but every color offers a unique option that's hard to replace in at least one category. I'm currently leaning toward or . Of course, it may just be unable to compete at a higher level with the tools it has now. What does Turbo Fog need to get into the competitive boards?

PurePwnage I recently removed it. It may sound counterintuitive but Prison was oftentimes a half-measure that hopefully slowed down opponents enough to get to the lock combo, which we would then become very dependent upon. By shifting from Prison to Sphere of Safety and protection, we reorient the mid game from Ghostly Prison to the lock combo and the late game from the lock combo to Sphere of Safety/Leyline of Sanctity.

Yeah TheBubbaEA I playtested the deck a couple times, and I felt like Opt wasn't doing anything. I know it is tempting to run, but it literally is one full mana to Sry1, so I don't know where it was coming in useful. I think your deck has a lot of potential, and has really good matchups against a lot of decks. Some sideboard advice, I think you need to run a lot of artifact hate because Hammer Time is a really bad matchup for you, so something like Force of Vigor will really help you in the matchup, because your deck is slower than Hammer Time, doesn't have great instant speed removal that doesn't do damage (which doesn't do anything if your opponents creatures get +10+10), and Hammer Time cheats it's threats into play using cards like Urza's Saga, or at instant speed during combat with Sigarda's Aid. Also, You could probably get away with running some copies of Leyline of Sanctity, or a form of life gain, or other anti-burn cards for the Burn Matchup, which is also pretty bad because it's mostly red and and an Aggro deck. Maybe Chalice of the Void, because it takes away 70% of Burn's options considering they are a Lurrus of the Dream-Den Deck

Given Your Mana Curve, 32 lands may not be enough, 34-35 will be better and keep you from getting land screwed.

Some cards that can be dropped for others

Divine Visitation: You don't have enough token generators to get value out of this, it will be a dead draw more often than not. --Replace with land

Soul Sisters (Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, and Essence Warden They are okay, but there are better options: Authority of the Consuls ...errr not as many as I thought, but I am iffy about those in an EDH list. Maybe Serra Ascendant?

Regrowth and Recollect: you have enough reanimation with some of you angels. You can drop those for lands and put you at 35.

Leyline of Sanctity may be a bit much? unless your group plays a lot of burn and target player cards, those aren't too common in commander.

Maybe think about The Book of Exalted Deeds?

Hope this helps!

FisterMantastic The vial thing I don't get how is always that bad for you because it tends to be great for me.

But for the rest, yeah, you are pretty unlucky, it seems that your local meta consist in mainly the decks we struggle most against, that's quite unfortunate. I guess you would have to work on the sideboard a lot. The SB in here needs a few changes for the actual meta, a few more creature removal to begin with.

Goblin combo (or any combo deck) is really hard for us. If there are a bunch of those Nevermore is probably our best side option to try to stop combos. Also fatal pushes on the side to take the snoop.

Jund unless they put Lili on turn 3 I don't tend to find it an specially difficult matchup, but like for the living end, put Rest in Peace on the side and that should be enough most of the times. If there are that many living ends around you maybe you even want some extra (and cheaper) graveyard hate to make sure it doesnt get though seized, Tormod's Crypt or Soul-Guide Lanternshould be able to do that job.

Ephemerate + Grief or Solitude (or anything that basically give us card disadvantage) hurts a ton. Shalai helps with that, but is a T4 play which many times is too slow. If you suffer that much against them you may want to put Leyline of Sanctity on the side, or double down in instant speed kill spells to make sure that at least you only get hit by each those once and not 2 or 3 times.

Affinitty doesn't tend to be hard for me, only sometimes because of Urza's Saga. Switch the Anguished Unmakings for Vindicates to help with that (I've done it, I should actualize this list, xD). Other than that it shouldn't be a problem with all the life gain. But you have a million "disenchant" effects in white if you feel like needing more hate.

Hammertime is a pretty hard match up specially on the draw. Double down on instant speed removal to kill its things while they are gettin equipped (mainly put a few pushes in the side)and hope you can stabilize before you die. Maybe even play Stony Silence even if having that doesn't totally stop them because of Sigarda's Aid. Bear in mind that we worry more about the trample in the Shadowspear than the hammer itself.

But yeah, I am sorry man, you have literally the worst meta possible to play this thing. I hope this helps a bit but you are in a tough area to play this. Mine is just the opposite, full of ultra aggressive decks that I can easily stomp.

I am happy at least you are finding this thing fun because I really think it's a super fun deck to play!

Good luck today, I hope it goes better!
