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 hyper nerdy 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 fun (and very expensive) decision! I fell in love with this game instantly and I've been playing pretty steadily ever since!

My favourite format is Modern, however I really just play casual kitchen table. I just like to limit myself to Modern so I still have a wide card pool to choose from while keeping myself from building with the most busted cards Magic has to offer.

I do also occasionally dabble in Standard and EDH, albeit very rarely. 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 creating them!

Thanks Apollo_Paladin!

I did some more playtesting and realized that trying to split the focus between landfall and second card draw triggers was pretty unreliable so I rebuilt it to be full on landfall. I added the Lost Jitte like you suggested and holy is it ever busted haha but I didn’t have room for Leather Armor.

I’ll add you on arena and we can try out both our versions against each other!

Thanks for commenting Excalibur478!

I agree that I should be running more lands, I’m just not sure what to cut yet to add them. Maybe Stump Stomp  Flip can be cut.

I don’t know about adding more damage spells though. I think I have a decent amount of direct damage spells and abilities with Irencrag Pyromancer and Mishra's Command, and the versatility of Bushwhack being able to grab a land to trigger Bill or target a creature to trigger Nadu is just too good.

Thanks again, I appreciate the suggestions!

Is kicker considered a part of the casted spells mana cost, and can cards that help reduce the cost of or help pay for the cost of a spell be used to pay for the kicker costs?

In particular I'm curious about how Eldrazi Temple works with Wastescape Battlemage. If I declare intent to pay the kicker costs for Battlemage as I'm casting it, can I use Eldrazi Temple's second mana ability to help pay for the colorless man portion of its kicker cost?

Thanks in advance!
