Mishra's Bauble Discussion

After looking at the decklist, I have some suggestions:

Cards to take out: Hellkite Punisher costs too much and is only a slightly bigger Shivan Dragon

Lathliss, Dragon Queen could work well in a more dragon-based deck, but it is unlikely to create many tokens in this deck

Liliana's Steward is too underwhelming of an ability to be used effectively. Same with Phyrexian Rager

You already have a lot of bounce spells, so Man-o'-War is not necessary and doesn't serve much else function as a creature

Boros Signet doesn't work in this deck because of commander colour identity

Mishra's Bauble is also a quite underwhelming card and not that useful

Rakdos Locket, Izzet Locket, and Mana Geode have better alternatives, as far as mana cost goes

Switcheroo also has better alternatives, ability and mana-wise

There are a few other cards that could be taken out, but I'm mainly highlighting the ones that should be taken out.

Cards to put in:

More removal like Cast Down and Terminate could replace a couple of bounce cards

Cards like In Bolas's Clutches and Control Magic could be considered if you want to have some more options for stealing creatures

The lockets and geode we took out earlier could be replaced with cards like Izzet Signet and other cheaper rocks

Try adding some more lands, 26 lands is not enough for a Commander deck. It is recommend to have around 35-38 lands, depending on your curve

Other than that, the deck seems fine. This deck has a lot of potential, if done right!

This is a rather enticing methodology for mono-White to have card advantage. By the holy and numinous Colour Pie, it aligns quite well. In terms of gameplay standards, this could work.

I have had great success drawing cards in mono-White with my Yomiji commander deck. It loops baubles using a vast meiny of cards and ramp, thereupon being able to maintain pace with the table quite readily.

Shameless Plug

I like this. The cards are largely terrible, but I am aware that this is not the point. The mechanic is the cynosure, and this seems promising.

I like this idea, unfortunately 2 problems (which you've probably already noticed).

  • You can't play Urza's Saga in a deck with Zirda, the Dawnwaker because it doesn't have any activated abilities (until the first chapter triggers)

  • Zirda won't find Walking Ballista because it doesn't have the specific mana cost of 0 or 1. Mana cost and mana value are not the same thing, so in this case, if you chose not to use Zirda you could still find Mishra's Bauble or Mox Amber with the saga

the problem i can foresee with this list is your not flipping eryo until turn 4 at earliest and that's to slow for modern. the deck needs some mana neutral cantrips of some powerfully and cheap recastable spells

cards the come to mind are Manamorphose,

Mishra's Bauble, Tormod's Crypt with Repeal,

Finale of Promise. with cantrips

Memnite Ornithopter + Hurkyl's Recall Retract with Emry, Lurker of the Loch

even Faerie Impostor, Greenbelt Rampager, Glint Hawk would all help

Would Street Wraith be better than Mishra's Bauble?

SynergyBuild I can’t say I really understood how the Trickery deck worked. Could you enlighten me?

Oko, Thief of Crowns is certainly annoying but with Arcum's Astrolabe banned, perhaps in a Modern where Mishra's Bauble is banned, Oko may come back? Perhaps it’s not a matter of what is in the format right now or banned. Regardless of what changes could make it happen, I think there are cards next to Oko, like Birthing Pod and Splinter Twin which are cards I believe fall into a category of being worthy of discussing. Then you have cards like Gitaxian Probe, Hypergenesis, and Chrome Mox which fall firmly out of said discussion as far as Modern is concerned and can probably stay banned on consensus forever and always.

Karn/Lattice is certainly a powerful late game for Tron and I agree that it shouldn’t exist in the format. We already see consistency as the rationale for most bans Ponder, Preordain, Birthing Pod, Green Sun's Zenith. It strikes me as weird that it was not the tutor that got banned but the target. I think that Karn needed the boot. I believe Mattice was doing nothing until that came along.

replacement ideas: - 4 Trespasser's Curse with Thoughtseize - 1 Swan Song with Mishra's Bauble (Tolaria West backup target)

wallisface on Esper midrange Lurrus

Some thoughts:

  • almost all decks with Lurrus, run Mishra's Bauble. At the moment, you don’t have many good targets for Lurrus.

  • Decks i’ve seen running Force of Negation usually don’t run more than 2ish, as the card disadvantage from playing multiple can start to hurt. But i assume running 4 is still fine most of the time.

  • I’d swap out Drown in the Loch for Counterspell. You don’t have many ways to fill an opponents grave, and you already have plenty of ways to kill creatures, so an unconditional counter seems more practical here (especially if you’re concerned about big stuff like Murktide).

  • having Chalice of the Void AND Void Mirror in the sideboard feels excessive, you probably only need one of these, unless your entire meta is cascading into Living End
