One more thing!!

As far as cuts go, anything EXCEPT FOR the following should be cut in favor of a more streamlined strategy with some of the pieces that have been mentioned imo:

Blightbelly Rat Bloated Contaminator Cankerbloom Fynn, the Fangbearer Phyrexian Hydra Scheming Aspirant Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Thalia and The Gitrog Monster Invasion of Ikoria  Flip Chromatic Lantern Grafted Exoskeleton Snake Cult Initiation Carnivorous Canopy Drown in Ichor Infectious Bite Putrefy Tainted Strike Command Tower Inkmoth Nexus Karn's Bastion

All of these are great picks that can easily slot into the deck's rework.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 years ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Thanks for your suggestions! I somehow missed Phyrexian Swarmlord when I was looking at topend threats, and it's extremely interesting. I think I might add it as a on-off, reason being that I really like Phyrexian Hydra because of all the ways we can it unblockable. Thats the reason I took the hydra over Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Skittles as well- we don't need to pay the extra mana for evasion since we have so many ways to do it ourself, so better to spend the mana on raw P/T. Thanks for the suggestion of Viridian Corrupter , that'll do nicely in the side (:. If you have any other suggestions for sideboard I'd be glad to hear them, I'm pretty out of date with new sets and the current modern meta.

I know Phyrexian Swarmlord is 6 cmc, but I think it might be better than Phyrexian Hydra . It synergizes great with both of Hand of the Praetors 's abilities and also works well with Driven / Despair .

Also there's Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , the cool infect creature no one uses outside of EDH. This might be the one good modern deck for it.

I also see you don't have a sideboard yet. Viridian Corrupter should be good there.

Cool deck!!
Any thoughts about Protean Hulk , Triumph of the Hordes , Phyrexian Hydra , Inkmoth Nexus ?
Cheers.

AngryTortoise on Vorinclex - High Power

Harbinger69 Just want to clarify - I think Phyrexian Hydra should be cut because it interacts unfavorably with Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider and The Ozolith. Hopefully Grafted Exoskeleton works out in the deck!
