Smokestack

Artifact

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a soot counter on Smokestack.

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player sacrifices a permanent for each soot counter on Smokestack.

Ok, so here's a few top picks (imho) for Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip.

Oppression, Liliana, Waker of the Dead, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Living Death, Delirium Skeins, Innocent Blood, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Words of Waste, Smokestack, Sword of Feast and Famine & Chains of Mephistopheles (just proxy it lol)

There's also a lot of cheaper options that are just as synergistic like Plaguecrafter, Demon's Disciple, Raven's Crime, Hymn to Tourach, Mind Twist, Mind Shatter, Mind Slash & Sadistic Hypnotist.

Outside of the synergy pieces, I'd recommend replacing some of those low-power pieces like Bad Deal & Inevitable End with value pieces like Dark Ritual & Vampiric Tutor for greater consistency.

@wallisface would a new and improved Imperiosaur help 5 color soup or just make it better? lol

color shifted Blood Moon could be neat... especially for black acting like a differnt/additional Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth?

Frankly after getting hit with rakdos scam decks I almost don't even think Smokestack/Winter Orb would be any worse lol... but with all do respect please no i pray those cards don't come to modern.

@nbarry223 I also really could do without anymore "POWER" added to modern... at least in the generic sense... i like your take on sideboard cards and power boosts to niche archetypes

I’m really hoping they implement some cards/strategies to incentivise playing less colours in a deck, as we’ve been increasingly migrating towards a 5-colour-soup environment.

To that end i’d really like them to have devotion as one of the larger themes of the set. I’d also very much like to see a colour-shifted Blood Moon style effect in Black (or possibly Blue?).

Outside of that the only cards i’d like to see added to the format are degenerate nonsense like Smokestack and Winter Orb. Imo Smokestack would be pretty safe in modern, but also conceivably far too miserable to play against to probably warrant adding to the format. Winter Orb could probably only come in as a “fixed” version of the card, like what was done with Lions-Eye.

I would joke about "how can it be a Stax deck without Smokestack", but that's separate, and instead I'll offer up some possibly evil advice:

I think Lord Xander, the Collector is a worthwhile commander. My favorite thing is the dies trigger. Try Pox, Liliana of the Veil and Smokestack to help Xander die while adding synergy with Xander's control aspects.

Shattergang Brothers would make a very interesting Stax commander, if you have the cards to build it. Having said that, you'd be leaving out two of the best colors to use in Stax, but it wouldn't be impossible.

Is Jund Superfriends Stax even a thing? I don't know. But it sounds like something I'd personally try to build. Probably not even close to the best way to accomplish an Every-Garruk deck, but you know how I roll ;)

Combination Turbo Fog, Land Hate and Toxic Battleground, with the various Garruk incarnations providing the endless supply of tokens. Not a lot of Tax power without white or blue, but you could add all the classic artifacts, like Trinisphere, Defense Grid, Sphere of Resistance and so on. Add in Tangle Wire, Smokestack and so on. Black is by far the best Stax color anyway, and Jund is the second best land hate color combination next to Naya. This could totally work.

And then nobody will ever want to play against it. Ever.

Myrel is awesome power creep weirdness. Like Grand Abolisher fused with Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin.

Smokestack um...

Omen of the Sun on curve and useful.

Knight-Captain of Eos might be overkill but something to do with all those soldiers.

Field Marshal great lord.

Esper Sentinel quality 1 drop, artifact AND a soldier.
