The thing is, I'm looking to quickly and easily have Stubborn Denial online. While your suggestions technically meet the criteria I listed, they require a developed board already and that's a big drawdown in this specific case.

Hi folks!

So I want to see how I could capitalize more on Stubborn Denial and Ponder ing creative options.

Please suggest creatures, of any color, that could be cast for 1 mana, or less, and have or easily gain a power stat of 4 or more.

Here's what I got so far:

+++ Edit:

Levellers are off the table, they just need too much mana to pump.

Which ones am I missing? Not looking for creatures that get pumped by a specific other spell, but rather pump as I play, or get heavy cost reduction. I really need stuff that reaches power 4 quickly and/or easily and not jump through too many hoops.

Thanks in advance!

SnakeByte77 Great question, and definitely one I've given a lot of thought, since others have asked it over the years. Nothing will do quite the same job, but Glacial Fortress is an excellent budget mana fixer. As for Aether Vial , I typically use it so I can save my mana for interaction, either with Ephemerate , Stubborn Denial , Dispel , etc. So, after looking at the Modern legal mana rocks, Springleaf Drum would be my pick for a mana cheap budget mana accelerator. Thanks for the upvote, hopefully you have fun with the deck!

Yeah i don’t think you ever want to blink your own Thing, in general. You’d be better off running black spells to take the threats from your opponents hand to keep Thing safe, as well as Stubborn Denial

Nice deck, happy to give this a +1! It's a really solid budget build, but I do have a couple of recommendations.

First, Faerie Seer is almost a strict upgrade over Wall of Runes, scrying twice as deep for the same mana cost.

You also have a LOT of blinkers, especially for how fast you're going to be filtering through your deck. I'd cut a couple of Flickerwisp and Cloudshift for some 1 mana counters, like Miscast or Stubborn Denial, to protect your board against removal.

I'm always a fan of seeing Splicers in Modern, and I really liked this build for them. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the comments! I really appreciate the help testing.

I was also thinking of going down at least 1 Snapcaster, but I haven't done very many tests either. I was talking to an online friend and they said Snap loses some versatility without 4 Stubborn Denial, but since I'm only playing 6 >4 power creatures I don't think the deck can activate Ferocious consistently enough to have all four. So cutting Snaps for discard or something could be correct.

I don't know about filling out the playset of Agadeem's Awakening. This deck, while two color, still needs some amount of fixing, and there isn't much space to cut fetch and shocklands for mono-colour lands.
