TheVectornaut on Sorry, My Hands Are Full: Budget Card-Draw copy

3 days ago

Aside from the highly silver bullet Mirror Shield s, the card that immediately jumps out at me as being on the weak side is Concentrate . If you just need to draw more cards to take advantage of things like Psychosis Crawler and Chasm Skulker , I'd prefer a wheel effect like Windfall . I also agree that you could use more ways to stifle opponents. Voidmage Prodigy is another wizard and counter option that could fit right in here. I've had a reasonable amount of success with him in my Kanagawa's Revenge casual build with cheap expendable wizards. Baral, Chief of Compliance , Venser, Shaper Savant , and Vendilion Clique are other strong control tools at various budgets. Against friends running creatures that can stop countermagic, I'd consider keeping the Merfolk Trickster s here since they can potentially work around such a problem. An alternative plan could be to try and keep the board clear of threats long enough to win the game. Cyclonic Rift is the perfect card for such a role, but it is very costly. Maybe a Devastation Tide played after Brainstorm ing could be good enough. Or if you really want to bully your playgroup, Wash Out naming green is an option. As someone who suffered years of people naming green with Iona, Shield of Emeria against my mono-green commander decks, I recommend caution when employing color hosers.

Raugrin Triome could replace the bounce lands and as a bonus, it can be fetched or cycled. Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria would be very powerful additions to the deck as well if planeswalkers interest you at all. Vendilion Clique is a card I always enjoy.

StopShot you’re missing the point with the Splinter Twin ban. I 100% agree that we’ve hit the necessary critical mass of “answers” for twin/exarch, such that the deck isn’t ever going to oppress modern again. It’s not THAT good. I don’t think it was EVER that good, frankly, to be considered “oppressive”.
Twin’s problem is that, for the low low cost of 8 deck slots, you get an “I win” button that deploys 1/2 of the combo on an opponent’s end step. What this translates to is “a better wincon for any control deck playing U/R”. The competitors for that wincon are T3feri, Tef5ri, JtMS, Colonade, and just grinding your opponent out with Snapcaster Mage chip damage.
T3feri + Tef5ri are a decent set, maybe good enough to contend with Twin as a wincon these days. If we unban twin... maybe that’s enough to provide U with some wincon diversity. However, when twin was banned, your only “wincon” competition in U/x (literally blue + anything) was just colonade, snappy, and at the time we were desperate enough that Vendilion Clique was a 4-of option. Basically, your control deck was just better if it ran twin, even if the increase in win rate was marginal (<5%). Ergo: twin stifled U/x control deck diversity, because even if you wanted to be in U/W or U/B, the “best” thing to do to make your deck competitive was to just go U/R and play twin. Even U/G didn’t exist, unless you were Tom Ross playing infect.
A retrospective on twin may be ok now, what with all the new walkers, but honestly I don’t think WotC is gonna jump at unbanning it. Now that it’s banned, I’m sure “twin stifles our ability to print new broken cards” is a sufficient token argument to keep it out forever.

WotanubisReturned,

Thanks for the response - not sure how you found this deck, but I appreciate the thoughts. Obviously it's time to look at this deck for a few updates with the new cards that have come out since I first posted it - looking at your deck, Brazen Borrower really seems to stand out, maybe in place of Vendilion Clique or Vapor Snag?

ImaginitiveRascal on RUW Wizards of Iteration

Maybe Naru Meha, Master Wizard? This could be a Yorion, Sky Nomad deck too. There are at least twenty cards in that maybeboard that look nice for the maindeck, and Naban, Dean of Iteration works nice with yorion. If you went that way, You might want to add more enters the battlefield stuff, or ways to cast yorion agin or a few yorions in the maindeck. If not, you don't have too many ways to win, though maybe burn would do that. Your creatures are a bit skimpy to really kill an opponent. You are also one Vendilion Clique away from Lurrus of the Dream-Den, though it does nothing for the deck. Overall, it looks good!

I would recommend maybe some of these creatures:
Brood Monitor, Caligo Skin-Witch, Duplicant, Entomber Exarch, Gilded Drake, Palinchron, Phyrexian Ingester, Rune-Scarred Demon, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Solemn Simulacrum, Terastodon, Thought-Knot Seer, Vendilion Clique, Venser, Shaper Savant,
As well as these cards that can help abuse ETB affects:
Deadeye Navigator, Followed Footsteps, Mirror Mockery, Rite of Replication, Strionic Resonator, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling,
If you want more suggestions, feel free to look at my deck:

In my experience, playing modern fairies is mostly about playing the control game and protecting your biggest threat of Bitterblossom.

I believe going down -4 Brazen Borrower, -2 Scion of Oona, -1 Inquisition of Kozilek, and -1 Vendilion Clique for more counter magic would be best.

I would suggest putting a couple Snapcaster Mage in the main. Spell Snare is great with snapcaster so I would recommend that as well. Fatal Push, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Liliana, the Last Hope are also things to consider.

For the sideboard, I would 100% recommend Nihil Spellbomb and Collective Brutality. Collective Brutality is really important because sometimes you will really want the life gain because of Bitterblossom.
