I've been playing Magic: The Gathering since sometime in mid 2015 when my friend sat me down, busted out a pair of precon duel decks, and forced me to play this weird looking card game his friend had just gotten him into. I was hesitant to give it a try, I thought it looked extremely boring, but I figured what the hell, I've got nothing else to do. It turned out to be a very good (and very expensive) decision! I fell in love with this game instantly and I've been playing pretty steadily ever since!

My favorite format is Modern, but I do occasionally dabble in Standard and EDH. I'm by no means a competitive or experienced deck builder, I just play for fun and I build whatever gimmick deck comes to mind that I think would shake things up and create mayhem when I play with my friends.

I hope you enjoy the decks I create as much as I enjoyed putting them together!

Thanks for the suggestions kamarupa!

I did actually consider Orator of Ojutai over Wall of Omens, but I figured the guaranteed extra card was better than having a flyer. However, given how often I tend to have Arcades, the Strategist in play or at least in my hand, it's worth at least adding him into the sideboard. Speaking of sideboards, Slaughter the Strong is definitely going in there too!

I also considered running Eladamri's Call but decided it was a little too expensive to run and I didn't really want to take out anything to replace it with.

I'm still on the fence about whether I want to add Wall of Denial or not. It is a really good card with amazing stats, but I wanted to keep every creature in the deck 2 CMC and under, except for Arcades and Axebane Guardian because of how vital they are to the deck. But maybe I'll add Wall of Denial in the future after some more real world playtesting.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

Thanks for checking out my deck zapyourtumor!

I'm sure I could drop down to 3 copies of Arcades, the Strategist and still be fine, but he's probably the most important creature in the deck since getting him out almost guarantees I'll never have an empty hand, so I like playing a full set for the added consistency even if it means a bit of redundancy.

Wall of Tanglecord was only added to the mainboard to help against decks with lots of flyers but that's more of a sideboard thing anyways and you make a good point about not having very many 1 drops so I think I'll take your advice and replace them with 3 Perimeter Captain. I would replace Secret Door with the 4th Captain but I just really like having something to dump all of my mana into when I get the infinite mana combo out.

Thassa's Intervention may not be a great early game card but it's amazing mid-late game. When you get the infinite mana combo out then it just becomes a 2-card tutor with the added bonus of having a counter spell stapled onto it in case someone tries to board wipe me.

CoCo and Aether Vial are definitely straight upgrades but like you said they're out of my price range for this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I’ve had the same thing for a couple of weeks now. Some notifications were delayed, some I just didn’t get at all, and other times it worked fine.
