I was hyped for probably 10 years to get a celtic mythology set and here Kaldheim came. There are some pretty neat card mechanics definitely worth to play. I was especially hyped for new Angel cards for this deck, but was utterly disappointed. And here is why:

Final thought for Kaldheim: My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

WizardOfTheNorthernCoast one thing to note though is that Crackling Doom and Soul Shatter can both remove Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, while the latter can also hit Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Wrath of God hits neither, so they could be useful if his local meta has tron players.

aholder7 on Modern Mogis Lockdown

1 day ago

okay so a few things of note here.

first. i'd suggest running 4-ofs for your best cards. there isn't any clear reason why you'd want 3 ofs in this scenario except mogis who is legendary in which case it's fine.

second. Lightning Bolt. it's one of the best red cards in the game and it's cost effective way of solving problems cannot be understated. i think it's important that it gets a slot in this deck.

third. your win con appears to be Mogis/burn. Mogis is a very slow way to win. normally for a control deck you are controlling them until you can drop some threat that you can protect that will win the game shortly after that or at least create such a lock as to make getting out of it futile. mogis will never turn on in your deck so at most it's going to be 2 damage a turn from mogis assuming they aren't doing a wide strategy. perhaps a planeswalker like Liliana, the Last Hope who you can +1 to help remove creatures and win off of her ult.

fourth. your mix of control spells is heavily weighted towards destroying creatures after they hit the field. thats something you want to respond to but people play other cards that you'll need to deal with. enchantments like Wilderness Reclamation, artifacts like Amulet of Vigor and non-permanents of all kinds. you also will lose pace with decks that use creature that have ETBs such as Omnath, Locus of Creation and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath which yes you can kill but you'll be losing card advantage. you need a few more proactive responses and ways to gain incremental advantage over your opponent. discard spells like Thoughtseize or at least multipurpose cards like Kolaghan's Command and Collective Brutality can help. other proactive cards such as Blood Moon and Ghostly Prison can shut down or at least slow opposing decks to keep them from racing ahead of you.

with the above things in mind i'd suggest something along the following changes.

cards to remove:

-3 Crackling Doom: soul shatter and other remove should be sufficient

-3 Lightning Helix: lifegain is great for stabilizing but the power removal comes from it's mana efficiency. on turn 2 being able to play a discard spell and hold up a Lightning Bolt for their creature is much more powerful than the life gain from helix. still a great card for sideboard to bring in against lightning fast agro decks like burn or zoo.

-1 Soul Shatter: i'm not sure you need any of these in the mainboard. you have Anguished Unmaking to get around indestructible should it come up. Dreadbore and Anguished Unmaking can kill planeswalkers. That leaves hexproof is the only thing that this gets around that you don't have an answer for already. hexproof is uncommon enough that i'd personally put this in the sideboard, but considering how many of this effect you have in your deck i'm assuming your meta has enough hexproof to warrant 2 mainboard slots.

-4 Divine Gambit: 1 for 1 at best, 1 for 0 at worst. the ability to exile most types of permanents is powerful but the downside seems too risky and likely to set you behind.

-3 Anger the gods: you don't need 7 soft sweeps. with the amount of removal you have a board wide damage spell is likely for hitting tokens or other wide strategies. for most of these scenarios 2 damage should be enough. in the scenarios where 2 isn't enough, 3 likely isn't either. Wrath of God or similar would be a better bet for those situations.

-1 Pyroclasm: you probably don't even need 4 soft sweeps in the main unless you are expecting a dearth of going wide strategies in your meta.

-3 Mogis, God of Slaughter: without a way to turn him on or a way to create a true lock outs like teferi-pool you aren't going to get as much value out of mogis as you need to make him your win con.

cards to add:

+4 Lightning Bolt: this is solid removal or a damage to face if you don't need to use it as such.

+2-4: Thoughtseize: considered one of the best discard spells in the game because it hits basically everything at the cost of 2 life.

+2-4: Duress: you can choose Inquisition of Kozilek or Raven's Crime or another discard spell of your choice. i'd suggest at least 6 discard spells and you can decide the split between your discard spells depending on how aggressive your meta is.

+2 Kolaghan's Command: small creature removal, artifact removal, discard spell. very versatile.

+4 Liliana, the Last Hope, a strong contender for win con. i went with 4 copies because it doesn't have innate protection and you want it early if you can as it provides good value.

+1 Path to Exile: to make it a 4 of.

+1 Fatal Push: to make it a 4 of.

??? Tibalt's Trickery: I don't know if this is a good idea in control. you are giving up a card to change what card your opponent is casting. but they are still getting something. so you are 1 for 0ing them in a way. if they are casting a spell like Scapeshift for the win then obviously this will help but the risk of them flipping an equally scary threat off the top is very real. but your choices in counterspell are pretty limited.

if you are willing to mess around with your mana base you can probably make good use of Blood Moon as well but that would require some careful maneuvering in a 3 color deck.

  • You have 6 tunr-1-castable spells. I recommend at least 8 in slower formats. In Modern, you can easily be running 16 in a higher-cmc list.

  • IoK and TS are by far the best reason to be in black, in the top 10 1-mana spells in Modern, and the core of black control.

  • You're in Mardu, and you're in control. If you're not running 4x Path 4x Push 4x Bolt you're insane.

  • Tibalt's Trickery in Modern is for t1 Emrakul, not a Mana Leak replacement. (see MagicAID's recent vid).

  • Declaration in Stone is 100% better than Divine Gambit, and it's still not worth it when Path is $3

  • Pyroclasm is a sideboard card. It does almost nothing maindeck. Anger is okay, but if you're running control(in Mardu) Day of Judgment or Wrath of God or Kaya's Wrath is optimal. Run a playset of your preferred 4-mana wrath.

  • You don't have a win condition. At all. Mogis, even if you turn him into a creature, wins on t7. That's a couple turns too slow. Seriously, Approach of the Second Sun is better at winning.

  • Here's some wincon ideas: Secure the Wastes, Inferno Titan, Grave Titan. Although you're not ramping, they just outvalue everything except Prime Time and, in the case of Inferno, Uro. They win incredibly quickly and can singlehandedly take you from a bad position to a win. Glorybringer is also reasonable. Chandra, ToD is not horrible either.

  • Smiting Helix is great spell as well.

  • Also, you're in control and don't have much grin capacity. Night's Whisper is sorta necessary.

I don't think Mardu are the worst colors for lockdown decks. However, as Xianling69 said, Mogis is way. Too. Slow.

Tibalt's Trickery is bad unless you use it for a cheeky combo of some sort (I'll let you Google how it can be abused but it then requires you to build the whole deck around it).

Divine Gambit is awful aswell. Modern isn't fair. Removing a pesky creature to let your opponent play a bigger threat (Teferi, Emrakul, you name it) for free is just not a deal you want in this format.

Crackling Doom and Soul Shatter are okayish vs decks that play few creatures but again I would rather run Wrath of God or something in the sideboard.

Anger of the Gods and Pyroclasm are good spells vs aggro decks but again, dead cards vs any superfriends or midrange deck. Plus, you already have Patk and Push to get rid of early threats.

All in all you lack wincons. Remove specific removals for mass removals and add in tough-to-answer threats like planeswalkers or built-in protections (Baneslayer Angel or Stormbreath Dragon) or card-advantage creating cards like Seasoned Pyromancer or Glorybringer.

Take Out: - Merciless Eviction exiles so that will not trigger our boy, Nev.

  • Bontu the Glorified really doesn't seem that good. You dont have a lot of creatures to sack. Sure you could get a bunch from Nev. Its too many conditions needed for Bontu.

  • Emeria's Call  Flip is not the best when it does not even give the very angels it makes, indestructible

  • Winds of Abandon for the same reasoning as Merciless Eviction

  • Mnemonic Deluge is so much mana and you do not even really have any good targets for it. It wont get you an overloaded rift, it can target a board clear but you dont need to do that multiple times

  • Court of Grace seems slow and you will almost never be the monarch probably.

StopShot on Weird rulings for individual cards

Cards like Damnation and other cards from the Planar Chaos set sometimes have special rulings denoting what card they are “time-shifted” from - in this case Wrath of God.
