AstroAA on Punching in Pillow Fights

I appreciate the compliment, thanks!

I use On Thin Ice with only 7 basics in my deck and it works fine, albeit I run fetches like Prismatic Vista, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, etc so I can easily filter for basics if/when I need them.

As for enchantments that do 'control'ing things; I'd urge you to look at my deck. It's designed to control they game and grind it to a halt. However, I'm afraid that's a completely different deck than what you've got going on here. With your deck, you're trying to use auras in order to make one to two creatures as scary as possible to beat your opponents into submission - not lock them out of the game and preventing them from being able to play Magic. If you diversify your strategy too much, your deck would just become a mess - I'd recommend picking one approach and sticking with it.

On that note, you're quite vulnerable as well if someone deals with your aura-fied creature. Consider running things like the following to help protect your creatures:

Also, if you aren't wanting to add any more creatures due to wanting more enchantments, consider adding enchantment creatures. They also draw you cards whenever you play them since they're still enchantments. A good basic list of stuff you should consider is:

Harbinger69 I'm not quite seeing how Windswept Heath gets you any shock. There aren't any Forest or Plains lands in here, and it can't find Islands, Swamps, or Mountains. Am I missing something?

AstroAA on Lae'Zel Master Chef +1/+1 counters

2 months ago

Adding in because it dawned on me after the fact: If you wanted to further trim your CMC, replace Juniper Order Ranger with Good-Fortune Unicorn. Not as good as Juniper Order Ranger as it doesn't place a +1/+1 counter on itself, but it does still place a counter on the ETB'ing creature for two less mana.

Managorger Hydra and Knight of Autumn are both really strong. Avenger of Zendikar can get ridiculous really quickly. You should also look at including more spot removal, like Nature's Claim, Beast Within, and Generous Gift. Tutors like Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, and Green Sun's Zenith can help add in redundancy.

Also, I'd advise replacing the taplands (lands that ETB tapped) in your landbase. These slow you down a lot. Things like Brushland, Bountiful Promenade, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and maybe even sometimes Razorverge Thicket can be helpful. Also, fetches like Windswept Heath, Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, and Prismatic Vista can also speed you up tremendously because they filter lands from your deck, meaning you're more likely to draw a card that you can play instead of a land - albeit playing fetches like the ones I've listed can get rather expensive $$$ wise very quickly.

TheoryCrafter on Marchesa (ADVICE PLEASE)

Cards like Polluted Delta and Windswept Heath, where you can tutor one basic land type, seems to be in the deck chiefly to shuffle your deck. If that's not your intent may I suggest either replacing some of the other nonbasic lands with lands having two or more basic land types such as Savai Triome(if you can financially afford it)? Another option would be to replace those tutor lands with including, but not limited to, Fabled Passage and Naya Panorama. Another land you may want to consider is Bojuka Bog to throw off opponents who'd benefit from all the discard.

Since you have been putting in spells that prevent the player from doing something, other cards to consider include, but are not limited to, Aurelia's Fury and Silence.

Another card you may want to consider is Bonfire of the Damned. If at some point you find yourself adding more instants and sorceries that deal damage, you may want to consider adding any combination of Pestilent Spirit, Radiant Scrollwielder, Soul-Scar Mage(especially useful against creatures with Indestructible) and Toralf, God of Fury  Flip.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

If you want to keep the feel of opening packs and growing your collection, Draft is the way to go. It's possible to build a decent Standard deck from drafts, but it's going to take a big time and potentially money investment.

On the subject of money, a tournament-level Standard deck is worth about 200-400 USD right now, and Modern looks like it starts at 800 USD and goes up from there. If you want to make this investment for Modern, I recommend starting with the mana base. The essential lands for any multicolor deck are the fetch lands (cards like Windswept Heath and Arid Mesa that search for a land with a basic land type) and the shock lands (cards like Temple Garden and Sacred Foundry that can enter untapped and provide multiple colors of mana). The mana base is almost always the most expensive part of a tournament-level deck, thanks to relatively low supply and high demand, but once you have it you don't need to change it.

Of course, it's possible to have a Modern deck or two on hand for tournaments and free play, and spend time drafting as you want. But to reinforce what everyone else is saying, you're not going to build a Modern competitive deck out of a random box.

NonetheWeisser - ya...Windswept Heath is on the wish list. Just killer that the one fetch land I want/need is like the most expensive. I know once I invest in it, I can use it in any deck and it is so much better than Fabled Passage due to the tapped nature of Passage. do have 2xTemple Garden in the deck though so I at least have some land investment :)

NonetheWeisser - Thanks for the compliment. Every card can be very potent under the right circumstances...trouble is trying to optimize it so that circumstances come up often enough to warrant the presence of the card!

Your assessment of me being cheap was spot on. I am fairly new to MTGO and have a monthly budget I try to stick to so everything for me is budget for now. I am slowly adding new cards and better lands into my collection (only reason why I do not own Esika's Chariot yet is due is slightly elevated cost in comparison to all the other cards in this deck). In terms of investing in more expensive lands, I am assuming you are suggesting Windswept Heath or did you have others in mind specifically?
