Spellweaver Helix


Imprint - When Spellweaver Helix enters the battlefield, you may remove two target sorcery cards in a single graveyard from the game. (The removed cards are imprinted on this artifact.)

Whenever a card is played, if it has the same name as one of the imprinted sorcery cards, you may copy the other. If you do, you may play the copy without paying its mana cost.

Very cool deck. One cards that should help a lot is Locket of Yesterdays and another to consider is Long-Forgotten Gohei . You might be able to find other neat interractions by looking into Haakon commander decks. Just remember to check if the cards you find are modern legal. Another idea is adding the Spellweaver Helix + Dark Petition + Raven's Crime combo.

Super fun to hear about SFM being unbanned and look i forward to seeing "new" brews with it..... I personally am sad about Faithless Looting because I had fun with it in a janky Spellweaver Helix brew with Cruel Ultimatum and retrace sorceries...by no means competitive but F.L. definitely helped.

I like Spellweaver Helix . I'm not sure on Dakmor Salvage though. I get that Salvage fuels the Helix, but I don't think it's worth the inclusion of a tapped land just for that. If the deck was more centered around the Helix, by all means, but as it stands, I don't think it's worth it.

As for the Helix itself, I see it in the sideboard, against something grindy and more prone to the late game as UW control for example. Or Whir prison if that ends up being a thing. In the Main Deck it might be too slow. However, agains the right matchup, out of the Sideboard, having multiple repeated 2-for-1s has to be amazing! :D

Spellweaver Helix is something I am playing with due to it's fun factor with Raven's Crime / Syphon Life and whatever other sorcery you fancy like Smallpox / Dead of Winter ... Dakmor Salvage might be worth considering too.

@Saljen yea I should probably give a bit of a better explanation of how the deck functions. The mana curve is a bit misleading as the decks goal is to cast most of the higher mana spells for free.

Wildfire Eternal , Living Lore , and Spellweaver Helix will let you cheat out cards like Cruel Ultimatum .

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can recur every other creature in the deck for just two mana, and Pentad Prism provides both ramp and color fixing.

well personally i think i would just get some playsets of high dollar cards that i always avoid buying because im too cheep and then put them into my modern budget decks to make them more competitive... things like Fetch/Man Lands (Scalding Tarn/Celestial Colonnade because i have so many decks that a just hobbled by a less than optimal mana base.... Liliana of the Veil and Ensnaring Bridge so i can FINALLY have a legit 8-Rack deck instead of the 5 B.S. budget versions ive built over the years....Snapcaster Mage and Cryptic Command/Kolaghan's Command so i can make a real Grixis Cruel Control/Cruel Ultimatum deck without using the gimmick of Spellweaver Helix....things like this is what i would buy with that kinda money.

Hey I used to run a similar deck with Brilliant Ultimatum and Violent Ultimatum (Ultimate Ultimatum if you want to check it out). Spellweaver Helix is also a neat way to get ultimatums out.

Having run a few playtests on a copy, I'm really liking Electrostatic Field/Firebrand Archer, Hellspark Elemental and an instant/sorcery discard theme, with Cathartic Reunion- I'm considering a blue splash for Secrets of the Dead/cantrips or a green splash for the omni-present Life from the Loam. Burning Vengeance didn't work out, but Risk Factor looks like an all-star.

Thinking of mixing it with a Spellweaver Helix list to get that sweet Flame Jab/Worldfire value.

I gave some thought to an 'incidental damage' goblins list looking to burst with Goblin Grenade, but it looked too fragile after some tests without morphing into something unrecognisable.
