Untethered Express Discussion

multimedia on Budget Emmara Selesnya Tokens

9 months ago

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.

Command Tower is now less than $1 and is one of the best lands in Commander. Selesnya Sanctuary is another upgrade for a dual land. Quest for Renewal good with Emmara letting you create Soldiers or tap your tokens for other effects during each opponent's turn. Good repeatable draw with Mentor of the Meek. Glare of Subdual goes well with Renewal as opponent creature lockdown using tokens. Nullmage Shepherd can wreck opponents artifact or enchantment strategies.

Felidar Retreat is a new enchantment in Zendikar Rising for tokens. It's repeatable no mana cost Township effect or create a Cat token just by playing a land. Worth adding Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and Myriad Landscape it adding Retreat. Champion of Lambholt can make your token army unblockable since she grows each time a token is created.

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter combines well with Good-Fortune Unicorn to make each token created a mana dork. Jiang can put a counter on Emmara making it easier to tap her while also making mana. If going the Vehicle route for crew then Aethersphere Harvester and Untethered Express are some budget upgrades.

Rootborn Defenses and Sundering Growth are good instant spells with populate included. Camaraderie is an upgraded for Collective Unconscious and it's less than $0.50.

Good luck with your deck.

Boza on Decks for new players

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:

11 lands
2 Brawl-Bash Ogre
4 Corpse Connoisseur
4 Carrier Thrall
4 Myr Sire
2 Fleshbag Marauder
2 Crypt Champion
1 Underworld Cerberus - the champion

This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:

11 lands
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus

You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.

What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.

For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

  • The Antiquities War I know its not your colors and it would actually downgrade a lot of vehicles power and toughness but it does give you another Start Your Engines's type effect.

  • Bomat Bazaar Barge gives you a card which I think would be nice for your deck.

  • Fleetwheel Cruiser can let you get in for 5 if your boardwipes have done their job or if all your opponents creatures are turned, it can crew all but 4 of your other vehicles and then 7 of those can up crew those 4.

  • Oketra the True I would play this over Siege Modification it can't crew all your vehicles like siege can but it also doesn't set you up for a two for one, one of its tokens can actually crew Untethered Express or they can work with the god to crew other ones, and it survives your boardwipes as well as Hour of Devastation . and with double strike works great with Start Your Engines. I know it would be a creature in your creatureless deck but its blasphemy to call god's creatures anyway.

LittleBlueHero on Jhoira's Crew

I think Bomat Courier could be really helpful here.

It can crew Aethersphere Harvester or Untethered Express (if you end up running it) and more importantly if unchecked early it can refill your hand with more artifacts and such later on or help dig for Jhoira if you haven't found her yet.

Its a card I underestimated too many times when playing against it. Everyone has cards they love but Merchant's Dockhand is too slow for me personally. I can see its potential usefullness but If I had to cut something I think I would do a 1 Dockhand 3 courier split to see how it went.

Im also trying to find a fun way to run Jhoira. I think I will try going the legendary route though since thats my thing, even though I am sure the artifacts will be the stronger play :) +1 for Jhoira fun.

Thank you for the input GORG291! I'm afraid of having to worry about energy if I do that. Sure, one swing, gaining three life, isn't something to sneeze at, but I can swing in for 10 or more on turn 4 with Untethered Express. This being said, I don't discount Aethersphere Harvester, and I'll probably at least sideboard it over Siege Modification.
