Slippery Bogle Discussion
1 week ago
- there are several ways to go about this. I prefer the dont touch me method Merica' Enchant. By using cards that tax my enemy(s) to attack me I can successfully stall into the late game and never worry about my life total. Once i get there i use value town to win the game.
- Your method is much more of the "bogles" method. Utilize creatures like Gladecover Scout and Slippery Bogle to a good creature to pump up. It has hexproof so removing them are hard. These cares a like 1$ a copy roughly. Kor Spiritdancer is really good as well but more spendy. As for budget enchantments I would use 4x Ethereal Armor 2x Gryff's Boon 3-4x Hyena Umbra 4x Spider Umbra 2x Spirit Mantle . If you want to spend more money get Rancor and keep the Daybreak Coronet. If you go thsi rout i recommend 26 enchantments roughtly and about 13 creatures. Dryad Arbor is an interesting creature to look at (dont run more than 1 or 2 being its also easy to kill, and its a land). Path to exil is the best removal in the game in your colors. Id run 2 to help deal with probelmatic cards your friends might be playing. Leyline of Sanctity can also help you out if they have target player spells.
- Either way you go lands help so much. Espically when they tap for 2 colors and dont enter tapped. It helps smooth things so much. Temple Garden are a good investment and so is Razorverge Thicket . If you really want to get fancy Horizon Canopy are also really sweet. If you end up with the boggles rout youll need about 19 lands total. If you for bigger and better spells, Then its not as clean cut id have to look at your spell curve, I am gonna guess itd be 22-24 lands.
- If you want more feed back let me know. If you need help with other decks let me know as well.
- Also being you are considering Spirit mantel. Its gives it hex proof from creatures, and cannot be blocked from creatures as well. It also prevents all damage from creatures so it really helps.

Depending on how competitive you want to make this deck you want to consider serveral options all depending on your budget. I would reccomend if your creating a more casual deck you might want more card draw effects, such as Curiosity or Curious Obsession . Additionally having more ways to defend your powered up creatures will be critical to your gameplan; adding Mizzium Skin or Dive Down effects might be really handy. If your going for something as close to top tier as you can take it I would also add in more counterspells such as Stubborn Denial and throw in Hexproof threats such as Slippery Bogle and Invisible Stalker . Also if you want to be super jank replace more of your creatures with: Arcbound Slith , Slith Firewalker and Slith Strider .

In the spirit of giving deckbuilding advice, and at the risk of sounding a bit obtuse, I don't think this deck is going to be competitive in Modern. Your only real protection is Sphere of Safety , which is too slow for Modern, and you will not realistically be able to benefit from either Celestial Ancient or Sigil of the Empty Throne , since you'll likely be tapped out after casting either, and will have to wait a whole turn before you can get any benefit. Finally, auras are just a bad strategy in a format with so much removal--your opponent can easily take out two of your cards using one of his or her own.
That said, Selesnya enchantments can be a fairly competitive deck, but it is an aggressive one, rather than a control one. The deck, often known as Bogles or Aura Hexproof, revolves around Slippery Bogle , Gladecover Scout , and Kor Spiritdancer to quickly drop low-cost hexproof creatures then start swinging with cheap enchantments like Rancor and other 1 mana auras (as well as Daybreak Coronet and maybe 1-2 copies of Spirit Mantle ).
However, if you want to keep with this plan, here are a few suggestions:

Despite the all caps proclamation and tag, this deck is neither Tron nor Aura Hexproof.
Tron is a deck featuring the three Tron lands Urza's Mine , Urza's Tower , and Urza's Power Plant to quickly ramp. Aura Hexproof involves cheap creatures like Slippery Bogle and cheap auras to pump them quickly.
In Modern, you need to be prepared to consistently win on turn 4, or lock the opponent down by turn 4.
You’re currently running too many cards with high mana costs; too little efficient removal (such as Path to Exile ), and your ramp package is not quick enough for Modern. All in all, I don’t see this deck being all that competitive in the brutal environment of Modern.
I know this sounds a bit harsh, but you said on your thread your primary concern was not wasting money on a deck that wouldn’t work, so I simply wanted to provide my honesty assessment.

course to make that extra confusing so long as the aura spell isn't being cast but brought into play by an effect it then doesn't target, for example thanks to a Sun Titan trigger you can put a Pacifism from your graveyard onto an opponent's Slippery Bogle .
Course in before we get the "this post is being moved to the Q&A because it fits better into that section."

If the card doesn't use the actual word "target", it doesn't target.

I might recommend that you go with either Gladecover Scout or Slippery Bogle rather than Kor duelist and Noble Hierarch as they’ll be much more difficult to remove. Then you could potentially go “Turn one, creature. Turn two, Sigarda’s Aid+Hammer” and just start swinging.
