I'd use Faithless Looting, especially if you're using lava-dart. and for burn spells Lava Dart, Thunderclap, or Fireblast are probably better burn spells than your one mana spells. Being able to cast the burn on the turn you have All Will Be One + any combo piece is what you need most. I would main-deck include Pact of Negation even without blue mana and have a sideboard including 4x Pyroblast/4x Red Elemental Blast

other possible rituals include Simian Spirit Guide and Lotus Petal

Caerwyn Yeah sorry for that, I didn't even did a proper link format, I just copied where I built my deck without thinking, I'll change that, especially since I did some tweaks on it. Well like I said I never played with other people in paper except with my brother when I was a kid and of course never in a "tournament" setting, even if I lose it will be good fun to be able to be able to play in paper, going to another city (where the store is) and meeting new people, having fun, etc and playing outside of Arena is more important to me in this, also it's mistakes that make us learn right? So all in all should be good fun nonetheless. People also run here in my country elf and goblin decks to swarm the field, I've seen them asking for a goblin, elf, etc deck in the comments on sites selling cards and places like that, which I have a response to, either or both Doomskar and Ghostly Prison counters, and I found out that Authority of the Consuls counters Emrakul or whatever other card using Sneak Attack or Show and Tell, Emrakul is immune to colored spells, not permanents, which Authority is, so it will enter tapped, can't attack to use annihilator and gets sac'ed (using Sneak Attack), even if using multiple Emrakuls won't matter if I have just one Authority in play. Also, I think Historic in Arena is somewhat equal to what you said to me, because there is a lot of goblin decks, elf decks, loop decks (Vito and opponent losing life) etc, so to some extent it will be somewhat like that. I am also going to be running Pyroblast, so if they use any of these cards they will have to exile a blue card from their hand having less cards in hand and I just counter it with Pyroblast since it can counter any blue card, if they use another Force of Will or similar it will be just less cards in their hand and/or an Island on the field for them so less plays to make. I of course am no expert and no one can prepare for and counter every deck there is, I also have no idea what decks people will use, so again at least it will be good fun overall, it's also cheap to enter this event on this store especifically, so we'll see, I'll post here when I'm ready and after I go there, thanks a lot for the feedback!

seshiro_of_the_orochi, jethstriker, sergiodelrio Thanks too for the feedbacks and card tips! And yeah I found out that Authority counters Emrakul using Sneak Attack or Show and Tell and cards like that, which is great since I already run it :p

Here is my current deck I will use BTW: Sanctum of All Deck

NV_1980 on Imodane Burn

6 months ago

As Imodane is rather powerful in a deck like this, I'd recommend adding in some stuff that either prevents Imodane from being countered (maybe some counters of your own like Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast) when he's cast and/or stuff to protect him from (targeted) removal (the boots (Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots).

Also, I should point out that currently the deck has very few resources available to draw additional cards with. You can add some utility lands to help you out (Bonders' Enclave/Mikokoro, Center of the Sea/War Room) or maybe some more non-permanents (my favorites in mono-red include Seize the Spotlight/Valakut Awakening  Flip/Wheel of Misfortune)

Last but not least, would care to hear your thoughts on also including Braid of Fire. I'm thinking it might be worth it, considering the amount of damage-instants you're running.

NV_1980 on Imodane’s Flames

8 months ago

This is pretty nice. I'd add a bit more protection for Imodane though, as he's pretty vulnerable and will likely be a primary target. Some more equipment perhaps (Darksteel Plate, Mask of Avacyn, Champion's Helm), some cards that prevent (blue) players from countering him when he appears (Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast) or maybe some cards that mess with opponents' mana bases when they try something against him (or you). I'm thinking Price of Glory, Tectonic Instability and War's Toll.

Icbrgr on Modern Horizons 3 Predictions/Wishlist

9 months ago

So With Modern Horizons 3 Officially announced to be on the Horizon (No I'm not sorry) I was wondering if anyone had any hot takes/predictions or just a general wish list of cards they would like to see in the upcoming set.

Personally I have no Idea what to predict in terms of Brand new/never before seen cards... not even really sure what kind of theme/mechanic Modern needs or feels like its missing...not even really sure I can think of a cycle I would want to be finished... But I am always in favor of Tribal support... I genuinely believe Treefolk are only a powerful staple or two away from being a competitive deck IMO.

I have been building Burn in paper recently so for selfish reasons I think it would be neat for some legacy Burn staples be printed into Modern.

Im not sure If these cards would be considered "Too powerful for Modern" but I more so just fear that it would take away from "Legacy's Identity"... idk but these are just my from the hip thoughts.

Aug 8th, Record 2-2 60% Game win rate (6-4)

Strangely enough my shop didn't have Experimental Synthesizer Before I started today I had already bought 3 Gut Shot and 1 Underworld Breach to replace my Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion

2 things I've discovered this evening. My deck is SUPER good with 2 mana. Most games were either 1 turn away from me beating them. Or them just Combing me to the end of existence by turn 4 (literally in my last round). I won 3 games today with only 2 Mana.

The other thing. Dragon's Rage Channeler is good.

I seem to do OKAY with most other decks, and REALLY well with control-y types.

Also with the abundance of shock/fetch lands nowadays I basically have to do about 14-16 damage in a game. But it ain't easy with some of these decks.

Anywho.

CHANGES: Sideboard Blood Moonx2

I wanted to be that ONE special red deck that doesn't need this card. But it really does need it. There are WAY to many decks out that this shuts down (pretty much instantly) Will plan to buy more as necessary

Underworld Breachx1

Unfortunately, I don't have a million dollars, or I would buy more of this card.

Pyroblastx2

Screw blue. Red also need a counter against black -.-

FROM MAIN BOARD

Kari Zev's Expertisex2

The amount of compliments I got playing this card was amazing. Pay 3 Mana to take control of a creature and then play a free card (basically with the majority of my deck being <2 mana) In the words of one of my opponents "This is the perfect cheap replacement and fits your deck SUPER well. Good thinking"

The issue is, It is WAY to situational I really wish this was an Instant. Would make this card 10x better.

SIDEBOARD CHANGES OVER MAINBOARD

Dragon's Rage Channelerx2

Again, only found 2. Need 4 likely. If I do this, might have to rethink some other components. Maybe not.

- The Flame of Keldx3

I loved this card too. But it is way too situational. And the only real benefit is the 2 cards. and it takes 2 turns to get them.

Lava Dartx4

I was extremely lucky to have someone gift me a playset of this card. I bought the dude a drink after. Was great.

Azoth2099 on Narset's Work Out Plan

10 months ago

This version of Narset looks so fun, man!

One thing that I feel is fundamental when remembering Narset, Enlightened Exile's function as a Commander is that her ability gives you Graveyard hate as well as pseudo card draw by giving you access to your opponent's Graveyards as well as your own, meaning that you will always have card advantage as long as you protect your Commander.

That being said, I would definitely find room for Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mother of Runes, Giver of Runes, & an abundance of Counterspells. Personally, I don't like spending more than 1 Mana for a Counterspell these days. Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Dispel, Swan Song & An Offer You Can't Refuse provide a crazy ceiling of value for a single Mana. If you wanted to roll with 2-drops for budget reasons, though, Delay, Arcane Denial, Dovin's Veto & Negate are all easy to cast, & throw a wide net. Misdirection & Bolt Bend are also options here.

Secondly, Narset, Enlightened Exile can only trigger on your own turn, & you need to ensure that everything is going to go as planned. Grand Abolisher & Conqueror's Flail will lock your opponents out of your turn without giving your opponents the same utility like cards like Teferi, Time Raveler & Defense Grid notoriously do. Silence, Revel in Silence  Flip, Abeyance & Orim's Chant can do something similar for 1-2 Mana.

Speaking of Stax, there are a few concise, utilitarian pieces that you may want to consider. Drannith Magistrate, Sanctum Prelate, Archon of Emeria, Lavinia, Azorious Renegade, Boromir, Warden of the Tower, Aven Mindcensor & Containment Priest shut down a LOT of strategies. You'd be surprised how little most decks can do once you take away their ability to cheat stuff in, Tutor and/or cast things for free. Personally, every deck I have is heavily handicapped by all of those pieces. I wouldn't even be able to target them with removal if you played your cards right.

For noncreature Stax, you've got Chalice of the Void, Cursed Totem, Thorn of Amethyst, Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage (which your Commander's ability gets around btw, very strong here), & Rule of Law as a few solid options.

You do need quite a bit more card draw, though. Scroll Rack & Sensei's Divining Top are obviously great, but the level of toolbox utility they actually give you in practice is even better than it seems! Archivist of Oghma, Faerie Mastermind & Ledger Shredder all give you card draw that scales with what your opponents are doing, which is fantastic. Other things like Deep Gnome Terramancer & Wandering Archaic  Flip do the same thing, though they technically aren't card draw. Hell, might as well throw Monologue Tax out there too since I'm talking about scaling.

There's also Careful Study, Frantic Search, Tolarian Winds, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Burning Inquiry, Thrill of Possibility & Dragon's Rage Channeler, which are great synergy here!

Speaking of synergy, let's get into that! The foremost synergies for Narset, Enlightened Exile imho is Underworld Breach + Lion's Eye Diamond + Brain Freeze & Intuition, and much of the deck should be geared towards maximizing on that. They're all very easy to Tutor up via cards like Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Solve the Equation, Fabricate, Reshape, Transmute Artifact, Reckless Handling, Goblin Engineer & Gamble, in addition to being easy to recur via your Commander's ability. It's actually absurd, truly busted. I wouldn't recommend throwing Wheels like Wheel of Fortune or Windfall into the mix, though. They're very overrated, & you can just run Brain Freeze for the combo instead. No need to give all of your opponents a bunch of cards for free if you don't have to! Queen Kayla bin-Kroog is for sure worth consideration, though, if you choose to run Artifact Stax.

Maximizing on Underworld Breach, however, means running Storm. I'd recommend Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist, Urabrask  Flip, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual & Seething Song to keep your Storm engine from shutting off. I personally don't condone Runaway Steam-Kin, as it's just too freaking slow & conditional compared to other options.

Additional Combat Phases would also be of great use here as opposed to trigger doublers like Strionic Resonator or something. Aggravated Assault, Waves of Aggression, World at War & Seize the Day are the only ones I'd consider running, though. You don't wanna load up on too many synergy effects when you can just Tutor for the best of them when the time's right, ya know?

Since you're running Dockside Extortionist, I'd also consider Cloudstone Curio. With one other Creature (like Spellseeker for example), you can produce infinite Treasures & ETBs with little effort, which is usually more than enough to get you to the finish line.

Your ramp package is looking solid enough, but I'd include 2 more Rocks as well as the rituals I named previously. Fellwar Stone is, functionally, a 5-color Rock for 2 Mana, which is absurd. I tend to not condone 3-drop rocks, with the exception of Chromatic Lantern, which was just reprinted recently and is currently super cheap.

Oh man, now that I think of it Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal gives your whole team infinite power and toughness via your Commander, as well as giving you infinite Mana if you have enough Rocks on the field. Maybe consider it lol.

Monastery Mentor seems to fit like glove here as well, offering some much needed redundancy and a surprising amount of board presence. It's kind of like Deep Gnome Terramancer or Wandering Archaic  Flip in the sense that it just provides waaaay more value while playtesting than you thought it was going to!

Also, consider giving yourself Hexproof with stuff like Witchbane Orb to protect your own Graveyard.

To summarize, I really think your best bet with this one is building a system that gets to either an Underworld Breach + Lion's Eye Diamond + Brain Freeze combo win or an Intuition win as quickly as possible, with other combos like Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter being strong potentialities on the way.

Cheers!
