Oh, and cards like Metallic Mimic , Sage of Fables , Vigean Graftmage , and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed allow you to abuse these etb/death triggers on each player's turn instead of just once per round.

TheVectornaut on Revised RG wolves

2 weeks ago

ryangemus, Lightning Bolt is an insane card, to be honest, and is more of a mainboard play than Vines of Vastwood in most cases. If you had deathtouch from something like Wren's Run Packmaster or Garruk Relentless  Flip, I'd consider dropping red from the deck entirely since DT turns every Fight into a Murder and Immerwolf isn't that insane in a world dominated by Metallic Mimic s. As it stands though, Bolt is providing possibly your most efficient answer to enemy threats. For Giant Growth vs. Vines, it really depends on how much removal you're dealing with. More removal means Vines, Defense, Apostle's Blessing , and Mutagenic Growth become better. More creatures mean Growths, Might of Old Krosa , Groundswell , etc. become better. If you do choose more combat tricks, I'd definitely run the full 4 of Partisan.

All that being said, I think I'd rather remove Howlpack Resurgence before either instant. It's typically a worse lord than Immerwolf , and like the unblockable wolves, its trample benefit becomes worse the wider your deck goes. More than anything though, there's now a bit of a glut on 3-drops here, and dropping some for more 1's and 2's could smooth the curve. You can always sideboard in extra lord effects in games where you're getting hammered by Anger of the Gods sweepers or just need the extra damage to overcome a stalemate.

i feel like the deck needs 2 things to be consistent, 1 a combo win with mill, and secondly a alt win con. the alt wincon is easy Carrion Feeder combos nicely with gravecrawler and other 1 cmc reanimation.

for a combo win there are a couple of options, first is using a sac outlet, haakon and universal automaton and anything that reduces its mana cost by 1, (meaning you can recast as many times as you like for free. the best choices ive found are Undead Warchief solid lord and alt wincon, Gravebreaker Lamia can tutor a missing part of you combo as well Frogtosser Banneret only costs 2 mana but has no other uses in the deck.

another option in the same direction is Pitiless Plunderer goes infinite with any 1 cmc reanimating creature and a sac outlet (so it also works with gravecrawler and outcast.) so is a more flexible combo card but less usful outside the combo)

the second method is Metallic Mimic + Putrid Goblin any either alter or carrion feeder, both of which could fit the deck tribal wise.

lastly i would consider Judith, the Scourge Diva as a 2 of, as it dose the job of conrade but also you can remove creatures and its an anthem effect (meaning you alter mill plan will be more effective before you can assemble a combo)

hope some of these ideas help

Tarnoduds on Depala Dorf's Ahoy

So... Here's a thought for you... Magda, Brazen Outlaw just came out and it should work wonders in this deck, purely for pulling out the best vehicles from this deck and a few good tribal artifacts, like Coat of Arms or Obelisk of Urd .

Also, since you have so many vehicles, and so many of them have crew 2 or less, maybe I'd add a few more 1CMC dwarves of old... They're red and they're normally 1/1, but since your commander is a lord (to make'em 2/2's) and they're most likely always crewing instead of attacking, this should make your deck run a lot faster and smoother. There seems to be a lot of 3+CMC dwarves in here that dont do much other than beeing a Dwarf, so try to bring down your curve so you can get on the board earlier.

I'd recommend you to take a look at Metallic Mimic , Adaptive Automaton (since they're both dwarves, if you want), Bloodfire Dwarf , Dwarven Grunt , Spark Mage , Dwarven Miner and Dwarven Blastminer for a start!

Take a look at my take on a dwarf tribal as well, I'd love the feedback! I'm running it mono red with Magda at the command zone.

Omniscience_is_life on The New Most Competitive Modern Deck--Dryads

1 month ago

wallisface I'll swap two lands and two vials for four creatures. The reason I like Dryads is they're all one tribe (for cards like Metallic Mimic and Coat of Arms ), they have among them some pretty powerful cards, and they are a massive meme.

As far as not needing "gimmick" cards... is it really the case in Modern that tribal won-cons are just the tribe themselves? I hadn't known. But I do like some of the suggestions for finishers in the comment below.

Grubbernaut Spiral is for dropping extra Dryad Arbor s into play, and a little card-draw is nice in general IMO

Yeah, the land situation I'd agree with. Getting on with fixing that rn.

I wasn't adding off-tribe ('sides the Hierarch) creatures since my win-con was Coat of Arms , but if I'm dropping that then I'll consider it.

No doubt Triumph is a great card--definitely gonna run that one.

Thank you both so much for indulging this silly idea of mine ;)

Hello, people who know how this format works!

I've just built a deck... and I'm very proud of it... but I think it needs help. And that's where you all come in.


The gist of the deck is you spam Dryads, CoCo some more in, Finale OD some more in (mainly X=0 for Dryad Arbor ), Aether Vial even more, and win with either a Coat of Arms , or a Metallic Mimic .
