If you control a creature, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 1 reduces it to 1 instead.

@9-lives thank you for the kind words!

This deck is a passion project to be focused on Serra the Benevolent and thats why I'm running her at 3 copies. I know she isn't competitive but she is the focal point of the deck and the general brewing inspiration for my card choices.

playing a Serra Angel for mana that leaves a planswalker behind to Glorious Anthem with if she survives is very meh for Modern but im doing my best to have it work; even the Worship emblem isn't exactly an automatic win but sometimes it works and feels extremely satisfying.

I really wanted to have more burn spells in this list initially and ran a full playset of Lightning Helix in the mainboard but recently abandoned it altogether... as you were saying if I dropped the planswalkers and was more aggressive helix would come back; but with my decks gameplan I feel like I needed to have more for sideboard hate/removal because my LGS plays pretty powerful decks and its hard for a deck like mine to compete... currently is in here for Lightning Bolt for being a mainboard clock or essential removal for Goblin and aggro/prowess and a means to meaningfully interact with some opponents mana bases with Alpine Moon.

I ended up completely cutting as it was stressing the manabase having too much splashing. It was just a little too inconsistent for my tastes, as I would sometimes get stuck with good cards I couldn't play. The current 75 is a lot more consistent, without giving up too much of the versatility I had before. I'm fairly happy with it now, although I will miss my silver bullet against the scam deck (which is one of our worst matchups) in the form of Worship - they just don't have a way to deal with enchantments.

Nice list! I really like when the less powerful tribes get some love. I had a unicorn/pegasus deck back in the day that ran Sacred Mesa and it was a great mana sink late game (this was before there were enough unicorns or pegasi to have their own tribal deck...). And, in the vein of non-unicorn cards for the unicorn deck, Worship could be really nice with such a high creature count.

Of course, if the goal is to keep it pure unicorn tribal, feel free to ignore me :)

Lookin' go0od!

-1 Teferi's Moat, etc... You can probably drop ALL the pillowfort and just protect alela. Her deathtouch and tokens will do all the pillowforting you need. I would just run something like Inkshield to swing the game.

-1 Kindred Boon... I think you have enough indestructible and this one costs too much mana

-1 Enduring Renewal... with no way to sacrifice this easily, you can stax yourself

-1 Serra the Benevolent... doesn't really do much (if you like the ult I'd just run Worship)

-1 Netherborn Altar... I think you have enough to protect/ get alela back

-1 Starfield Mystic

-1 Starnheim Courser... yes, yes enchantments, but all I want to see is Alela.

+6 RAMP... lots of ramp on 2 so you can play alela and start running!

All your draw is "if > then a MILLION"... I think it works, but I've been thinking ~5 filter/draw like Impulse, etc (or more tutors) and 5 massive draw engines is the way to go so you can dig through and actually hit your engines. Rn I think you're 50% on playing a value game...

I would choose: enchantress or faeries? Right now you're locked in to go-wide faeries for draw and kill. Enchantress/ pillows probably deserve their own build <3


Icbrgr on What is the "best" way …

i totally count/consider Worship and all means of play that facilitate it as strategy to be "Turbofog"... I have always wanted to build around Pariah and Kiora, the Crashing Wave's +1 lol

nbarry223 on What is the "best" way …

I agree with that.

If you just don’t want to die, and that can be considered a turbo-fog, there’s also lots of immortality options, where you replace damage (Worship being my favorite).

I personally wouldn’t consider that fog, but some people might. There’s also the Pariah route where you redirect damage to something that just doesn’t die.

I think a card like that would be okay alongside a damage replacement effect. Something like Worship or Elderscale Wurm where you don’t prevent the damage, but instead replace it.

nbarry223 on Best Fae of Wishes Targets?

1 year ago

Great suggestions so far!

I really like Biorhythm as a sneaky wincon (going to keep it in mind in all future games I play, to see how often it would come up). Shark Typhoon is essentially a tutorable creature that you can sink mana into worst case, while also being a card you could build a deck around. Ensnaring Bridge is something I haven't considered surprisingly, but realistically the deck I run this in usually has too many cards in hand, so I couldn't use it as an out as easily as Worship could be used.

It's really funny you mentioned Karn, the Great Creator and Glittering Wish because I transitioned from Glittering Wish to Fae of Wishes, and actually ran Karn, the Great Creator for a little bit too. In my deck, Mosswort Bridge doesn't care about CMC and lets me cast the adventure mode free, and Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip (it has upsides with Mosswort Bridge over other lands) feels much better hitting Fae of Wishes instead of Glittering Wish, so there's a fair bit of upside for this option over the other wishes.

Unfortunately, Fae of Wishes says noncreature, so 2/3 of those don't work. I'd also want something with more impact than Tormod's Crypt, like Rest in Peace, when you consider the opportunity cost of the wish. Free cards are good, don't get me wrong, but they need to be worth Fae of Wishes initial cost to even be considered. For example, Force of Vigor is a valid option.
