Nest Invader Discussion

Chino90 on can i get infinite bounce …

1 month ago

I have both Cloudstone Curio and Cryptic Gateway on the BF. I play Nest Invader . I get the ETB trigger to generate a token, plus the curio tigger. I resolve the token trigger, which triggers an aditional curio trigger (the other still on the stack). Having 2 eldrazi, I activate the gateway's ability, and I put the gateways' ability on the stack.

Now that I have these triggers on the stack (2 curio 1 gateway), can I put them in the order "curio, gateway, curio", to bounce the nest invader to my hand, cheat it again with gateway, and chose not to resolve the second curio trigger?

That depends on how close to its current iteration you’d like to keep your deck. Honestly, Modern is such a fast paced format that if you wish to stay viable you have to streamline as much as possible.

If your path to victory looks something like Elvish Piper / Quicksilver Amulet —> Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , then you’re going to want to ramp as early and steeply as you can to get either of the first two in play ASAP. I’d drop Knight of the Reliquary , Noble Hierarch and Nest Invader for mana dorks like Arbor Elf , Mystic elf and Llanowar Elves . You’ll be able to play the Piper or the Amulet turn(s) earlier than you otherwise could, and proceed straight into dropping Emrakul after that.

That’s one possible direction to take your deck. There’s a handful of others. Ultimately the choice is yours. As long as it’s fun for you and your playgroup, there really isn’t a right or wrong way.

Nice, love how you combined bounce with Keldon Marauders! Maybe something like Rendclaw Trow could be a nice fit, since persist creatures like losing their counters more than undying creatures. But the above suggestion of Nest Invader and Young Wolf are definitely worth considering! Vault Skirge rocks too.

Making suggestions for Pauper as a Modern player is hard haha, it's hard to remember what is or isn't common and what power level is or isn't acceptable.

PS: Splashing is tough, but if you add blue you can definitely lean more heavily into the bounce strategy.

Nice deck! I love horned kavu.

I really wouldn't play Scryb Sprites though. I'd play some other good beater from stompy (River Boa, Nest Invader or Young Wolf for the bounce synergy, even Vault Skirge as just a strict upgrade (it's nasty with reckless charge and rancor). Other than that, love the deck

hungry000 Very nice. I'm not sure about the single Rancor, so I'd take it out, two Nest Invaders and one Loam Dryad for 4x Unearth.

+1 from me.

Edgardxcore Hey! Cool deck!

This is also a plan of mine to get going, once I have assembled my Abzan deck.

As king-saproling stated, Pitiless Plunderer would be a wonderful fit in here. Id consider cutting some of the following though:

Fist of Suns

Jodah, Archmage Eternal

Chromatic Lantern

Reason being; with Morophon's ability to reduce the colored pips in casting cost of your Eldrazi creatures, you will most likely want him on board as often as possible, as such, color fixing and alternate casting costs are not as vital to your strategy. Mycosynth Lattice is much higher in terms of cmc, but will also you to use your colorless mana in any way that you see fit!

You already have Lightning Greaves, so perhaps look into adding Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak as well, to offer more sources of protection. Neurok Stealthsuit is another good option, and gives you an instant speed equip option, should you need to move it around.

Another option to consider cutting would be Trophy Mage. As it is, you have 4 artifacts that it can fetch up out of your 13. Countering a creature is easy and will prevent your tutor for one of those pieces. A good option to substitute in would be Perplex. It offers you a tutor for a 3 drop, but is harder to prevent, as it is an activated ability, rather than an etb and can also be used as a counter should you need it.

I would also recommend substituting Dust Stalker and Nest Invader for some additional Devoid creatures that can bring in tokens upon entry to further your colorless ramp.

I run a mostly colorless deck, and find that Mystic Forge is a key piece in the deck. Some other good options for counters and removal are:

Void Shatter

Spell Shrivel

Complete Disregard

Serpentine Spike

Oblivion Strike

Smothering Abomination

That last one is just a personal favorite of mine, as its a great source of card draw when you sack your tokens for mana :) I hope some of this helps.

Mana Echoes can also be a great source of colorless ramp if you are willing to shell out the caps for said card.
