The Birth of Meletis Discussion

If you want to focus on the high toughness aspect more, I'd recommend moving to a Walls list.

Walls wants to use the things like Huatli, Assault Formation and such to hit hard, but it also employs a High Alert + Axebane Guardian combo. With four creatures with defender in play, you make infinite mana. This shouldn't be your main plan, of course, but it is a very fun include that means that if the game goes long, and with a walls deck, it probably will, you have a big advantage.

You also get Arcades, the Strategist , who lets you draw a TON of cards and is just the best payoff for big butts period.

Walls you'll want to consider include Dragon's Eye Sentry , Excavated Wall , Jaddi Offshoot , Secret Door , Wall of Runes , The Birth of Meletis , Saruli Caretaker , and Portcullis Vine .

You also get to run the amazing Tower Defense . If you cast tower defense with a good board and High Alert/Arcades out, you sort of just win on the spot.

Fun looking deck! I have a kind of long list of suggestions for you. Some of them are specifically suggested to deal with your draw problem, but not all of them. I will say that I wouldn't expect that you would try to fit all of these in here, and I'm also shyt at telling anyone what to cut from their own deck. So I'll drop this list here and let you make of it what you will.

Aegis Turtle is strictly better than Merfolk Secretkeeper or Yoked Ox here. I'm also a big fan of Wall of Omens for High Alert decks. Having played with Wall of Blossoms in Assault Formation for many years, I can say that the ability for a creature to replace itself is invaluable for this kind of deck that doesn't get a lot of card advantage elsewhere. On the more experimental side, I think The Birth of Meletis could be an interesting choice where you delay the wall entry in order to gain a land.

Nice deck (+1), though I do concur with the earlier comments about the land count being a bit low (could just switch out the Glorious Anthem 's for 2 plains), but if it's been working out for you in testing I'm not gonna question it too much (guessing The Birth of Meletis probably does a lot of heavy lifting here). Have you considered Spectral Steel ? It's pretty good with the Archon and can fetch back some auras against mill. Hope this helps.

mlequesne, I will add The Birth of Meletis to my maybe board for now. I still need to playtest this deck with my "modern kitchen-table" playgroup, but atm I think The Birth of Meletis is a tad slow in modern. It's a great damage stopper against aggro, but it doens't give me much of an advantage against control decks. Correct me if Iám wrong.

have you tried The Birth of Meletis ? it's a great card for control decks like yours, and it's also an enchantment.

See you <3
