Wuzibo on More Modern talk with Jay, ...

I'm putting together a red tron deck right now, with the jank win condition being Worldfire and then suspended Rift Bolt or Arc Blade . Prismite will be in to filter colorless into red. I can use ritual spells for it too, and i'm thinking about Zada, Hedron Grinder , since i can target her with damage to board wipe. I could make it a weird tempo burn thing, though, and include red x damage spells with bolts as a backup win-con with arc blade, other rift bolts if we draw more than one. maybe Cinder Wall and Electrostatic Field especially too.

What are your thoughts on the viability of a deck like this in modern right now? I was on a hiatus from the game from 2016 to early 2019, and I understand a lot of tron hate has been printed in that time.

Awesome primer! As I've been going through Feather decks for ideas I've been noticing a lot of interesting repeats (they all have Teferi's Protection despite it only working once? How odd) now I understand why.

Just want to add my two cents here on a different direction you can go. Arcane spells - feather sees spliced spells as targeting even if the original spell does not, and it's a great way to get extra effects in there.

For instance Zada, Hedron Grinder + Desperate Ritual spliced onto something that targets. Makes insane amounts of mana.

Crack the Earth + Spiritual Visit + a targeting arcane spell, say Blessed Breath + Zada or Mirrorwing Dragon = annihilator x where x is the number of creatures you control, for 3 mana.

I haven't completely tuned it yet, but just want to throw out some alternative ideas if people want to take a look.

griffstick I like Zada, Hedron Grinder , but I like Gelectrode more. It has blue and does direct damage.

Feather, the Redeemed would give buyback to most of your cantrips assuming they can target one of your creatures. Throw Zada, Hedron Grinder in for massive card draw off those same cantrips.

Including more/most of the red cantrips (more so instants) will ensure you'll be able to cast them utilizing Kykar's second ability. Ephara, God of the Polis can net cards using instant speed cantrips on opponent's turns. Goblin Electromancer can make the cantrips cheaper but might not be worth the spot. Firemind's Research could be an interesting include as well.

So how exactly do you finish people off? I see the little pingers and I know Purphoros can make the table go splat. There's gotta be more ways we can abuse all (not just spirits) these free tokens.
