KBK7101 on Post your favorite MTG card …

1 month ago

Most of my favorite art comes from the lands from certain planes. Lands usually give the best representation of what the plane is supposed to be, in my opinion. Case in point, see the Amonkhet plains that was posted above.

I have a lot of cards that I love the art for, but I'll try and narrow it down to my favorite planes and a few assorted others. Sadly, I don't have hyperlink privileges, so you'll just have to suffer with card links. lol

I also LOVE the art/designs for the five Amonkhet gods, but I feel like I've posted too many as it is. lol

Some thoughts:

  • Modern is a pretty fast format. Most decks without ramp find it hard to justify running more than 3-4 cards at cmc4, and often run nothing higher. I think you should consider ditching those high-cmc cards you have costing 5 or more mana.

  • You should also aim to always stick to a 60 card deck, and try not going over that number. You're currently running 75 cards, which is a decent amount over. What this means is that you'll just end up with overall worse draws and weaker hands - by removing your 15 weakest cards, it means you can't draw them, and so will be reliably drawing from your 60 best.

  • Continuing on the line of consistency/hand-strength, you have faaar too many 1-ofs and 2-ofs in the deck, which is going to make your hands and draws super inconsistent. I’d suggest getting playsets of all the important pieces you want to see in most games.

  • One thing to know also is that your deck is currently not legal! You cannot have more than 4 copies of any non-basic land in the deck, you're currently running 25 Scoured Barrens, which isn't allowed. That particular land is pretty bad anyway (lands entering tapped aren't great), so I'd suggest just running basic plain and Swamp in-place of it.

  • I'm not sure how you plan to actually cast Ghoultree. The cost-reducer effect it has only reduces the amount of non-coloured mana you need to pay, which means even at best case scenario, you'd still need to pay the , which you appear to have no way to generate.

Wabbajacke a typical Lanturn control list would look something like this:

So, if you're wanting to keep to just blue and black, and include Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, then I would suggest a list that looks something like this (you'll note the deck can be a lot more tool-boxy than the above because Whir of Invention lets us search for whatever we want, so for example we only need 2 bridges):

zach3584 sorry for the long wait! I decided that I would take out an Island since the land base has just been so solid every time I have played the deck. I may switch out a Swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in the future. I am also switching out Restoration Angel out for Possessed Skaab more because I just really like this card and want to put it in a deck that I own.

Just a note: Given the inclusion of Field of the Dead, it bids that the deck includes a variety of land names. As such, I would split the basics into both Snow-Covered and normal basics.

Moreover, I have my own suggestions beyond the intrinsic. Unfulfilled Desires is a splendid card that every Dimir deck should have within its grandeur.

Buried Alive and Entomb each find the best card in the deck, being Gravecrawler. To bin and back.

Best of luck brewing! If you care to peer upon it, I have my own macabre menagerie here: Consigned to the Graves

Fare thee well.
