Vizier of Remedies

Creature — Human Cleric

If one or more -1/-1 counters would be put on a creature you control, that many -1/-1 counters minus one are put on it instead.

Most definitely! That deck has already made a few major tournament showings again recently. The deck also uses Stoneforge Mystic, to grab Luxior, Giada's Gift, and Viridian Longbow. I'm sure there's a few more key two drops that benefit as well, besides just Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies. The deck also happens to run both Extraction Specialist and Postmortem Lunge, so Tyvar, Jubilant Brawler already slots right in! I'm excited to see that deck do as well as it possibly can :D

Playtested it a few times and found a cool combo:

Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies for infinite Green mana, which can easily be backed up by anything that allows card draw.

Also helps when you draw Springbloom Druid to go get some Plains to help you cast more creatures on later turns since you basically don't need your Forest anymore.

Good build!

wallisface on Squadron Hawk in Modern?

A loooong time ago I had a deck that utilised Squadron Hawk to ramp up counters on Quest for the Holy Relic. The wincon was then to use that Relic to slap Worldslayer on one of the birds, and with the help of something like Selfless Spirit, keep my own creatures alive while wiping everything else, and edge out a win through a few turns of combat damage before the opponent can find lands and rebuild a board.

That deck also had the old infinite mana combo with Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies, with Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip then acting as a solid game piece to further both potential wincons. The deck would often go infinite and win on turn 3, or else worldslay everything turn 4.

Saying all this, the meta has shifted considerably since I was running this deck, and i’m not sure such a combo brew would be viable in such a high-interaction meta these days. But I can say that, at the time, Squadron Hawk was great for all of fueling the combo, buying me time with expendable blockers, and thinning the deck in a way that felt meaningful.

Supersaulty on Devoted Druid interaction with Vizier …

I ordered a playset of both just a week or so ago, now, when I read it... So because of the Vizier of Remedies the Devoted Druid doesn't put a -1/-1 counter on the Devoted Druid, so it seems to me it WOULDN'T untap...

Big update with Dominaria United! King Darien XLVIII makes such a huge difference in the deck. It passively buffs all of my creatures, which is amazing. But, more importantly, it also provides a board where I can Collected Company or Chord of Calling out my Walking Ballista, and it will live. The Ballista is the best choice for the deck anyways, since it works with both Vizier of Remedies and Devoted Druid as well as Heliod, Sun-Crowned. So Ranger-Captain of Eos is back as well to round the whole thing out.

On top of that, I'm trying out something new. Since Melira, Sylvok Outcast will continue to be relevant forever, as infect shifts to poison, I'm thinking about how to sub her out for game 2. If my opponent doesn't have infect or poison, Melira, Sylvok Outcast can start to hinder instead of help. I'll already have Vizier of Remedies and Heliod, Sun-Crowned for the Kitchen Finks combo. So instead of continuing to hurt the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies combo for game 2, I'm seeing how substituting Fiend Artisan for Melira, Sylvok Outcast will go for now. Seems like a good fit, and could be versatile enough to make sense.

Additionally, Ajani, Sleeper Agent is amazing. A potentially 3 costing planeswalker on the side to Glittering Wish for just can't be beat. And it's also fantastically good

Xenaphix02 I knew about Yawgmoth he already in the deck but Mazirek is the wrong colors atm the moment i'm either going Mardu with Alesha (which is the current built one) or grixis with Sedris. But with the mardu build I have access to Archangel of Thune, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Vizier of Remedies to help go infinite with persist

That's a really cool card, never really registered its existence haha. I messed around with it for a little bit, and it basically would end up the same as the trophy.

As I have it right now, I'm just stuck with using Abrupt Decay in the early game, and Assassin's Trophy later on. Would be the same with Mortality Spear at that point, since it would take a bit to have set up lifegain and a wish.

For the most part, that's fine. I'm just worried about threats that can get out early, that have a higher mana cost. Things with Delve, or Madness, or Affinity, or idk. It's the only thing that makes the current set up not ideal. Not really sure if there's anything to do about it though, or just wait for the next set of removal cards to get printed at this point. I think the Trophy and Decay are still the best two.

Also, I've been messing with the mainboard again. I feel like I thinned the deck out a little bit too much with one ofs, and only having one of each of Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies felt like handicapping myself. Going with only 3 of each of the combo pieces main board, with one of each on the side, was a big move. Between that and finally going down to 3 Glittering Wishes, the numbers are finally starting to feel right.

wallisface Thank you so much for the suggestion! I hadn't heard about the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies combo. I made some edits and playtested it and the deck is running a lot better. It's cheaper too! However, it's still a little slow and I feel like I went overboard with the mana dorks. Any ideas on how we can optimize the deck even further?
