Prismatic Ending

Sorcery

Converge — Exile target nonland permanent if its converted mana cost/mana value is less than equal to the number of colours of mana spent to cast this spell.

The deck could definitely use some tuning, but I like the concept a lot, especially the flavor bonus of Jeskai plus a deflection theme.


Cards to Cut

First off I would cut a lot of the straight up bad cards. Divine Reflection obviously fits with the theme but the card just takes too much mana and offers too little for what it costs.

Shu Yun doesn't really do much for the 3 mana he costs, and his double strike effect even makes you pay two more mana every time.

Boros Charm is really more of a burn card, and I don't think it does very much in a tempo list like this. The indestructible choice can come in clutch sometimes, but the 4 damage or double strike options seem pretty mediocre. There are loads of great cards to run in Jeskai, and I don't think this is one of them.

Snapcaster Mage is obviously a great card. However, assuming you're on a budget, you also have to consider the fact that this card is taking up 1/3 of your decks price (for only 2 copies). More importantly, I'd actually argue that Snappy is far too slow for your tempo deck, which wants to be relatively aggressive with early threats like Swiftspear and Delver. The extra $40 you save can go towards some really nice upgrades for the deck, some of which I will suggest below.


The Manabase

I've had to build manabases for multicolor budget decks before, and I feel your pain. This is always easily my least favorite part of deckbuilding on a budget, and it just feels bad in general that your deck can't even run smoothly without spending a ridiculous amount of money on lands. But that's what WotC decided its going to make half its profit from so it is what it is.

I'm not going to make any specific card suggestions here, but your manabase is pretty clunky. This isn't really a criticism, since any manabase below a triple digits is going to be clunky, and I think the combination of basics+checks does an okay job all things considered. Thank god none of your cards have double pips of one color. I think any number of shocks are going to be out of your price range. Check lands are nice, but they basically require shocks to work well. Some other land cycles you can look into are Painlands, Innistrad Slowlands, Temple (Scry) lands, Amonkhet Cycle lands, and Pathway lands.


Maindeck Card Suggestions

Path to Exile: While some of the deflection cards can hit creatures, you technically only have three copies of bolt in the removal department. In my opinion, you should definitely expand that to a more diverse suite of removal spells which can cover all the bases. Path is probably the best catch-all creature removal you can run. It excels in the midgame, removes annoying threats like Murktide, Archon of Cruelty, Primeval Titan, Yawgmoth etc, and only costs one mana. It's also affordable! I think running around 1-2 copies would be good, with potentially another in the sideboard.

Prismatic Ending: A very strong removal spell that compliments Path very well. While path takes out all the high cmc creatures, ending deals with the cheap creatures easily while also dealing with any other problematic permanents. Most 3+ color decks of this kind that run white should run this card in my opinion. Ending also dropped in price a lot so it's quite cheap.

Lightning Helix: I definitely think you should max out 4 copies of bolt first, but helix would be like copies 5+. It also kind of fits the deflection theme since it gains you life (equivalent to preventing damage) while also dealing damage.

Monastery Mentor: Definitely on the more expensive side of my suggestions, but still a lot cheaper than Snappy. If you want to run a 3 cmc threat, I would highly recommend Mentor over Shu Yun. With all the noncreature spells you're slinging around, you will quickly amass an army of monk tokens with prowess.

Sprite Dragon: My replacement of choice for Stormchaser Mage. One of my favorite cards, Draggy is a threat that your opponent must answer quickly, or risk getting run over. Definitely a very solid 2 drop in this kind of deck.

Expressive Iteration: Iteration is a bit slower than most of my suggestions and most of the cards in your deck (besides Snap), but what we get for being slower is grind power and card advantage. EI is such a strong card that most decks from the aggro-midrange-tempo-control spectrum in UR colors choose to run it. Of course, if you are short of card slots then I think my earlier suggestions fit the deck a little better.

Consider: While I don't think you have space to add Consider in addition to Serum Visions, I do think it is worth cutting Visions for this card. You lose a little bit of digging power, but the instant speed is invaluable in a deck that wants to hold up mana for counterspells and instant speed removal/deflection effects. Opt works if you want to save a little bit of money since you have no graveyard synergy besides Snappy (which I think you should cut anyways).


Sideboard Card Suggestions

Tormod's Crypt: Grave hate.

Spell Pierce: Additional copies of Pierce are always good for decks with lots of those noncreature spells.

Wear / Tear: Remains some of the best artifact/enchantment removal in these colors, especially good against saga decks. Cheap also.

Hallowed Moonlight: Hits a surprisingly large number of decks right now, from Creativity to Scam to Rhinos to Yawgmoth to Living End--you get the idea.

Dress Down: This card is just crazy versatile and absolutely hoses saga tokens, and it is probably relevant in more matchups than you would expect. You can cast it in response to Murktide to make it a 3/3, you can shut down hammer and Yawg, stop Titan and Archon from using their ETBs, cast it in response to a Thassa's Oracle, etc.

Alpine Moon: Mainly for Urza's Saga, but it also stops Tron and hits some random stuff like Valakut Scapeshift and Lotus Field shenanigans.

Mystical Dispute/Aether Gust: Just decent color-hate options, if you need more flexible sideboard pieces and have extra space.

Blossoming Calm: Another card I like in decks like this, great against Burn and Rakdos Scam but also stops stuff like Archon and Yawg Combo from targeting you.


Deck Description Suggestions

Each person usually has their own style of deck descriptions, but I can give some suggestions based on my own deck descriptions.

Accordion tabs are usually my go-to, and I'm glad you already started one here.

  • Deck overview/general deck goals
  • Gameplan
  • Maindeck card choices (can be broken up into sections: creatures, interaction, etc.)
  • Sideboard card choices
  • Matchups/Sideboarding Guide (optional)
  • Nonbudget Upgrades (optional)

In terms of stylistic choices, if you contact Yeago (the site owner) on the discord and request CSS perms you can do internal/embedded CSS. You can do inline css without perms, but it is pretty limited and only allows you to customize the objects in the description itself.


If you made it this far, thanks for reading all of my comments; I hope at least some of it was helpful lol. Happy brewing!

zapyourtumor on Turbo Temur Titania

2 weeks ago

I remember seeing some naya titania decks pop up a year ago splashing white for Knight of the Reliquary and Prismatic Ending.

Here, Bitter Reunion seems really bad. You don't have Goryo's Vengeance like Spike did in his Jund list to bring back titania, the card doesn't really do anything. And you don't need to use it to get lands into the graveyard because fetches.

In my opinion maindeck Shadowspear is a must in any Saga deck.

I am not sure how playable Serum Visions is in current modern. If you cut it, you are then only splashing blue for EI and have less turn 1 proactive plays, so those are some reasons to keep it. I can't really think of good blue cards to fit into a Titania midrange lands matter deck. Uro would definitely be one if he wasn't banned. Growth Spiral may be okay but not the best; it does help turbo out Titania though. I'm not sure if you want to run counterspells either; Counterspell is too restrictive for a 3 color+saga deck so maybe Mana Leak or Spell Pierce. Slogurk, the Overslime is an interesting one, but again I'm not sure how playable it is in modern.

For the sideboard, I think Boseiju is strong enough to warrant moving a second to mainboard and cutting down to 1 sideboard copy which would free up slots for stuff like Haywire Mite and Flusterstorm.

zapyourtumor on An Attempt at Azorius Prowess

I highly recommend Ledger Shredder, it should be pretty strong in a UW prowess for a couple reasons. You'll be triggering its connive pretty often, which would grow it into a pretty big threat. It can help you dig for gas and discard excess lands. And lastly, prowess decks usually want a certain ratio between creatures and spells, and if you have too many of one or the other Shredder can help you dig for what you need.

Curious Homunculus  Flip and Monastery Mentor are some other suggestions I thought of for prowess creatures in UW, both of them are a little slow but both of them can be pretty strong, and especially Mentor can run away with the game just on his own.

The main weakness of mono blue is a lack of ways to deal with resolved permanents, so I'd lean a lot more on your white splash for more removal. You have 2 Paths, but depending on your meta I think you could maybe up that number. I'd also run 2+ Prismatic Ending, since it's the strongest removal in white and you can go up to X=3 if you run a single Raugrin Triome. Some RW prowess lists literally splashed white for nothing but Ending so the card is definitely pretty good in prowess shells.

I'd cut Mana Tithe, Psionic Blast, and Mishra's Bauble for a few different reasons. Tithe is that funny white counterspell, except you're literally in blue so you have better options (ex. Spell Pierce). Also, counterspells typically don't work too well in prowess decks since you want to be casting spells on your turn, instead of holding up mana for your opponent's. Psionic Blast is funny but I think the card is just too bad to justify running it. Bauble seems bad here because you have no DRC, and basically every card only cares about instants and sorceries. It doesn't buff Clever Luminancer, it doesn't let you cast Stormwing for 1U, it doesn't give Murktide a counter, it doesn't flip delver, it doesn't remove counters from TITI.

Defiant Strike could also be a consideration since it's both a cantrip and a pump spell.

Daveslab2022 on Doubling Cube instead of Mulligans

Also, 99% of the time the game doesn’t pause, and most people don’t want to draw a game.

If I have a fetch on turn 1, I’m going to pass turn and while you’re making your first move I’ll crack my fetch and shuffle up. The only time this is different is when I have interaction on turn 1, which is becoming less and less likely.

Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile used to be the premium removal spells in modern. Now it’s Unholy Heat and Prismatic Ending, the former requiring an amount of setup so not usually cast on turn 1 unless it’s a Ragavan on the opposing side, and the latter is a sorcery speed spell.

Xica on Chandra or Blood Moon?

2 months ago

I have to point out that Chandra, Torch of Defiance is not what she used to be.

In my estimation she was up there head to head Jace, the Mind Sculptor as the most powerful walker at 4 mana. Then planswalker targeting rules got "errata-ed".

Before the errata, her 1st ability (like all damage aimed at players) could be redirected to hit walkers - which couldn't be targeted by damage spell, instead you had to redirect the damage you aimed at the player controlling the walker.



As such Chandra, Dressed to Kill is "THE" red planeswalker.

In regards to Blood Moon i would say that its likely to become more and more powerful, as effective zero deckbuilding cost domain decks are likely to become more and more common due to cards like Prismatic Ending & Leyline Binding. Which make things like aspiring spike's self mill combo borderline immune to hate.
I would also like to note, that said deck is likely to become the Tier0,5 to Tier0 format warping force. Free counters + t3feri + 2 playset of universal removal + instant win?
...i have hard time immaginig hate cards that could work.

Yes, blood moon is not an auto win.
However it delays your opponent enough to give you a fighting chance.

Icbrgr on Nimble Obstructionist Vs Tale's End

This decklist is untested at the LGS... I have been playing some decks there for the past few weeks just to get a feel for what's being played there and the vibe of the store and such (also shaking off the cobwebs from a long hiatus of in person paper magic)... This jeskai control list is a deck ive been builing/playing casually for awhile and I have hopes that it can perform decent at this store....

I originally was running Rest in Peace for living end but didnt like the symetrical GY exile because of my own reliance of the GY but i suppose when it come to confirming that Living end exist in the store i suppose i should probably put it make in over maybe Narset, Parter of Veils or Prismatic Ending because they seem to be the least helpful... i always hear great things about both but i find them kinda underwhelming... although i know Chalice of the Void gets played there too and prismatice helps get rid of it but im not even sure how bad chalice would hurt me.

wallisface on Tsunami (Mill)

Dead_Blue_ very old mill decks used to run it, before stuff like Ruin Crab got printed. Now there’s just far better options. As well as not being as fast as the newer mill options, it also suffers heavily from the existence of Prismatic Ending, March of Otherworldly Light, Boseiju, Who Endures etc. The card just isn’t as good as it once was.

Ouroboros_47 on Mardu Moon Tokens

Never Return is alright but I think you have better options and it would compete with vindicate for space imo. Also, 2 black mana might be hard considering your mana base. Three other options I can think of are Terminate, Dreadbore, and Prismatic Ending.
