SufferFromEDHD on Firja, Judge of Valor

4 weeks ago

Somehow I missed this commander during Kaldheim. I really like the idea of Orzhov spellslinger. Your build is solid.

Incarnation Technique seems like an auto include. Reanimate 2 plus a Firja trigger. Corpse Dance is the same with the guaranteed trigger.

Scroll Rack is like PB&J with that Land Tax. Helps put things in the yard that might be in your hand.

Rumor Gatherer scry and card draw are useful to the strategy.

Golgari Thug the best black dredge card for the decks theme.

Silent Clearing more draw never hurts.

Silverquill Campus expensive scry but valuable to Orzhov.

Path of Ancestry pure value.

Imp's Mischief Izzet value in mono black.

Pull from Eternity potential secret tech. Something to ponder.

Vindicate to round out the playset of the best spot removal in the game.

Love the suggestions wallisface! I was trying to fool around with the Dakmor Salvage but it just wasn't doing it for me. Optimizing the lands for a turn 2 Smallpox followed by a turn 3 Vindicate is absolutely the right choice.

I took a look at your decklist and going all in on land destruction is definitely a tempting option. Shadow of Doubt is a nasty surprise for sure. I think I might just be leaning toward general value and grinding out my opponent for now, but if it doesn't pan out I may look into trying some of those ideas out.

Syr_Francis on Orzhov's Purulent Plague!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this Basics of this Deck! Any thoughts on updating this to a Post-MH2 Modern Deck?

Mishra's Factory to replace the Mutavaults?

Vindicate because it's freakin' Vindicate (can't argue with that reasoning!)

Bloodchief's Thirst is an option!

Fracture for the Sideboard!

A Tourach, Dread Cantor or 2 might be neat!

Also, not sure if it's playable or would find a spot in here, but the new The Raven Man has me intrigued... & if he's making more Token creatures, Bone Shards & Village Rites might be solid too!

There's also the Urza's Saga "Saga Pox" route... but I think I like what you're already doing more than Saga's.

I love Rack/Pox stuff & have been debating what style of the deck to build for Modern & this just feels super neat, fun, & semi-unique! Cheers!

Hey, nice version on a low budget. You have good deck building skills on a budget.

Consider Talisman of Hierarchy as 99th card or an upgrade for a Diamond? Orzhov Signet is another mana rock upgrade for a Diamond. Commander's Sphere is upgrade for Cluestone. Angelic Accord is an Angel token source upgrade for Moonsilver.

Sigarda's Vanguard gives Liesa double strike when she ETB and when she attacks. Karmic Guide can reanimate any creature in your graveyard even a black creature. Emeria Shepherd is powerful repeatable nonland permanent reanimation when playing so many Plains. Pair Shepherd with Wayfarer's Bauble.

Liesa, Forgotten Archangel has lifelink, can shut down some opponent strategies and can be repeatable creature recursion. She's good enough to add some creatures who can sac themselves for value especially removal and protection such as Cathar Commando and Selfless Spirit.

Angel of Despair is powerful ETB removal. Angel of Sanctions exiles something when it ETB. Admonition Angel can be repeatable exile. Palace Jailer is more monarch as well as opponent creature exile. Vindicate and Dire Tactics are some budget removal upgrades to consider.

Caves of Koilos, Shineshadow Snarl, Shambling Vent, Temple of Silence, Vault of the Archangel are some budget land upgrades to consider.

Good luck with your deck.

WarpedZerghead on Sen Triplets

What I found worked best for a Sen Triplets deck is using blue and white for control so you can have your artifacts do all the work getting combos into play.

Control

Stop players from stopping your fun: the match is yours and they simply haven't realized it yet. Dispatch quickly sets you up for a nasty rebuttal in between whichever counter-spell you choose to deploy. Vindicate, Mortify and Fracture (to name a few..) will help them learn that you mean business.

Land Fetch

Utilizing Esper colors, Black is the tutor-for-all, Blue is great artifact tutoring and White for some artifact but also enchantments. Good enchantments to have on hand are Paradox Haze (which you have) and Artificer's Intuition. Intuition is good because you can use it to get a Sol Ring in hand, another cost artifact you might have, or, any of the following "artifacts that cost :

This cards makes for great and tutoring in a non-green deck as it can be used again and again and there are quite a few you can fetch. Another option is Tezzeret the Seeker that can get you your lands by using the -X ability for 0 to put them into play, unless you want to get a different combo/ramp artifact instead.

Artifact Tutor

Besides the obvious Vampiric Tutor an Demonic Tutor for your get-anything option, there are many options still available for finding the cards you need that are artifact type.

If you are ok with losing a few artifacts, Kuldotha Forgemaster is the ticket as I will sometimes even sac my artifact lands to get better beef on the ground. Otherwise, Sphinx Summoner will get you something in hand and provide you with a flier and a card. Some new cards that play well alongside the Trinket Mage are the Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage cards. Trinket gets you your Sol Ring or another artifact where Tribute and Trophy get you and , respectively.
Artifact-related lands you want to look into are Inventors' Fair for artifact tutoring and Buried Ruin to get something back into your hand from the graveyard.

Ramp Boost

With such a vast array of artifact-type cards - especially mana ramp - you'll want an Unwinding Clock to be sure to keep everyone on edge.

Combo

Combos? We've got combos!
This is my new favorite infinite trigger set using Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + any of the following sacrifice outlets:



Steal their Kool Aid

Your Commander will lock a player out of your turn but it also allows you to play their hands. This is a good time to drop any lands they might have in their hands to keep them starved and likewise cast their good ramp spells to get you ahead or continue to lock them out. In the event they finally are able to cast something, you can respond with a Desertion counter-spell (mana permitting) and stick whatever creature/artifact they were trying to cast back in their Vault of Whispers. Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Daxos of Meletis are also nasty foes that puts an opponents deck against themselves. Bribery and Acquire are a malicious and personal jab that should only be used at every chance you get assert your dominance on the board and your opponents deck.

Conclusion

All these cards stand alone from what you can do to further abuse you opponents with just your commanders abilities: it is a multi-pronged deck that throws multiple threats at your enemies making them scramble to deal with one thing while still getting overrun by another.


Have fun...

Cowmmunist on I'm the reason people hate Child of Alara

DawnsRayofLight thank you so much the kind words and recommendations!

I actually used to run an Amulet of Vigor! However, I took it out because i found that without the other "combo pieces" in hand, there's almost zero pay off to playing this card in this list as it currently exists. I would 9/10 times just prefer another piece of interaction.

Callous Bloodmage is an excellent card, but you were able to deduce exactly why I play the Agent in its stead :)

I have been doing a lot of thinking about changing up some of the card choices in the deck since I have not done so in quite some time. Things like Despark, and Vindicate need to come back into consideration. Despark may not specifically make the cut because this deck goes off at 3 mana, and I play twice as many ramp spells as any other kind of spell since it's part of the core strategy, so I'm not afraid to sacrifice efficiency if it means more versatility. I mean, most counter battles I get into are when I try to win which means I generally will have 9-11 lands in play.
