Maybe a better question is: are you more interested in an optimized deck, or just one you find interesting? Because we can't give you advice on what you subjectively like.

I put it as simply as I could; for each extra combo piece from a separate combo, you could instead play draw/dig spells that get you more consistently to your main combo. A better question is: if any of the given combos let you win, what do you gain by making your deck less consistent in order to have multiple combos? And, is that worth a loss in reliability? If so, why?

Long time casual tryhard brewer here - agree, too much. In general, for each strategy your deck tries to employ, every other is watered down as a result. Every card that's a separate combo could be dig cards to make your main combo more consistent.

Said on The New Most …...


Return dodges chalice on one, though. Not sure what else it's too slow for.

No Leyline of the Void ?! Also, Omen of the Sea .

Seems fun to pilot. Cheers!

Said on The New Most …...


All good points. I'm not used to CoCo decks, so those choices make more sense, absolutely.

Said on The New Most …...


1x Path to Exile , 3x Veil of Summer , 2x Return to Nature , 2x Settle the Wreckage (maybe?), 2x Oust or Condemn , 3x Rest in Peace , 2x Deafening Silence - something like that, ish. Depends on the meta.

But really, with only 5 blue sources and continually-declining value past t2, I strongly suggest dropping Growth Spiral . While it isn't ramp, you might consider Dryad Greenseeker as a replacement that still can give card advantage -- while also working towards your tribal goal and ultimate wincon.

With a little tweaking, could be a cool Lurrus build.

Either way, dark dwellers seems optimistic, even with flagstones. Maybe Cleansing Wildfire ?

Said on Modern Fairy Tribal...


Pyre seems just okay in a spellstutter deck, to me. Faerie Seer seems good, too.

Growth Spiral seems really out of place; with mana dorks, I don't think you need extra ramp, especially in a splashed color.

I'd also switch up the manabase - maybe some pathway lands, or fetches, just for more duals.

You could consider off-tribe value creatures like Ranger-Captain of Eos . Also, Adaptive Automaton .

I would personally drop Coat of Arms for something like Triumph of the Hordes or Overrun , etc.

Bounce lands seem rough, in control. Filter lands help with cryptic, as well.

Said on not a rules …...


It would generally not matter, so why change it? Unless it's just for flavor, then feel free to house rule it.

March 3, 2021 6:18 p.m.

4 coast seems like a lot in a deck with cryptic and charm, but otherwise, looks like fun to me.

Said on Would a White …...


I could see Pierce, perhaps. Leak is too far of a stretch; white should only have conditional counters, imo.

February 27, 2021 4:46 p.m.

Diabolic Edict seems good over Devour Flesh , but I love this list. Right up my alley.


February 26, 2021 6:23 p.m.

Said on is Miracles dead?...


Yeah, can't really see a good reason to go into it over conventional UWx control without Sanctuary. Makes it clunky for not much reliable return; control benefits from less variance, but without Sanctuary, miracles gets more.

February 26, 2021 12:47 p.m.

Languish OVER ritual, rather.

February 25, 2021 12:27 a.m.

Unless it fits into your combo, I wouldn't go for Scepter; way too slow for the modern meta, in general. But yes, the 2-cmc counter slot is VERY important. If you're going for the 1-cmc hand removal, it's generally advisable to run 6 of them, intending to have one you can cast t1; however, some people go as low as 4, if they're also running counters. If I'm running them at all, I like the full 6, but you do you. Between the two, I'd generally go Languish or Ritual of Soot , but it really depends on the meta. For SB, Plague Engineer is a house, too.

Said on Would a White …...


I think it'd be fine. A way to make the card itself more playable could be to make it modal. Mana tithe for abilities, or maybe fetch a basic plains?

February 24, 2021 9:52 p.m.

Kinda depends; one of the struggles of modern u/b is having to decide between discard, counterspells, or both. It's also easy to drift into a kinda-sorta tempo shell. Some general cards to consider... Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Drown in the Loch , Mana Leak , Archmage's Charm , Remand , Delay , Fatal Push , Bloodchief's Thirst , Murderous Rider , Brazen Borrower , Spell Snare , Cryptic Command , Snapcaster Mage , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Behold the Multiverse , Rise / Fall (pet card of mine - might be worth a splash for it, Bolt, and K-command).

Of course, sweepers would be a good idea, too - depending on your own creatures. Damnation , Consume the Meek , Ritual of Soot , Languish , Witch's Vengeance , etc
