Most of my decks on TappedOut are theorycrafting, seeing how a card interaction works or just messing around. I like grindy attrition decks, usually in some variation of --Turbofog, Lantern Control, discard, that sort of thing. Resource denial is a way of life. I also have a soft spot for Dredge and recursion.

What do you want this deck to accomplish? Are you aiming for a combo win, or a damage win, or just to mess with people?

How much money are you willing to spend on this deck?

Of course, if you're consistently not enjoying the strategy, or the commander, or the playstyle, it might be best to break it up and build something you will have fun with.

Porathy, the Voracious

Legendary Creature - God

Porathy, the Voracious can't attack or block unless a card has been put into your graveyard without being played this turn.

Whenever a permanent you control is put into a graveyard, you may pay . If you do, gain 2 life and draw a card.

5/4


This one is the hippo-headed God of the Luxa Flood, bringing disease and damage along with fertility and new opportunities.

Keep it going, with or .

RyuSama420 I wouldn't say there's anything wrong with Legacy, really. (I've never played a competitive Legacy match, so maybe a grain of salt is needed here.) But it's at the point where turn 3 is late game, and even turn 1 seems like early-mid game. If you like fast setup and knowing the outcome before your third draw step, then Legacy is perfect.

Modern used to be a slower game (barring the occasional Arcbound Ravager deck), with a good amount of back and forth play. Now, even if you haven't actually won by turn 4, you either have a good lock on the game or you're losing. It's sped up considerably, resources are freely available, and cards like Thassa's Oracle tend to reduce interaction. It's still not quite on the level of Legacy, but it will only get closer.

Between Modern Horizons and the sheer number of sets, it was going to take a turn for the Legacy-ish sooner or later.

Here's a little bit of historical trivia: Modern was officially codified in 2011, when it replaced Extended. Legacy was formalized in 2004. As of August next year, Modern will have existed for 11 years, the same amount of time (give or take a few weeks) between Alpha Edition and the formal introduction of Legacy. Basically, Modern now is what Legacy was ten years ago, in terms of card count and availability.

Spreading Poison

Sorcery

Distribute two -1/-1 counters among up to two target creatures.

At the beginning of your end step, if an opponent's creature was destroyed or dealt lethal damage, return Spreading Poison from your graveyard to your hand.


Finish the cycle with .

If a commander is in the command zone, is it considered under its owner's control? As an example, a Wizard enters the battlefield, triggering my Inalla, Archmage Ritualist from the command zone while Harmonic Prodigy is in play. Is Inalla under my control? How many times would Inalla's ability trigger?

Gidgetimer Not all, the Painter's Servant + Grindstone + Dark/Blightsteel Colossus is still good.

October 18, 2021 12:21 a.m.

If you're looking for Bant, that would exclude the Marauding Raptor.

Stuffy Doll, choose yourself, attach Pariah or Pariah's Shield.

October 18, 2021 12:18 a.m.

If you have too much money and don't want friends, Divine Intervention + Opalescence + Suncleanser.

Grixis, not Jund. .

Aamazul, the Tower of Wings

Legendary Artifact Land Creature - Sphinx God

Indestructible, flying

Athava isn't a creature unless you control at least one white, blue, and black permanent.

Athava isn't a creature as long as you control a red or green permanent.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control six or more artifacts, you may look at the top two cards of each player's library, then put them back in any order.

3/6


That type line...

Jund is the last one left.

October 17, 2021 8:46 p.m.

Teyo's Shield

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant planeswalker

Enchanted planeswalker has ward .

At the beginning of your end step, if you did not activate a loyalty ability of enchanted planeswalker, put two loyalty counters on it.


Create a card with the text "Sacrifice X lands: ".

NinjaBunny01 Nice suggestions! Buried Alive is a classic.

Not quite literature, but a lot movies based on some sort of classical world mythology are poorly made and get the source material completely wrong: Gods of Egypt (Australian man pretends to be Egyptian so he can make out with Australian woman pretending to be Egyptian, helped by Scottish man pretending to Egyptian god, and that's not even getting into the plot), half of everything with Hercules in the title (the Disney animation was pretty good, even when getting its mythology tangled), anything that shows Shiva or Kali as a mindless homicidal maniac...

So overall, it seems to be a combination of intended Commanderness, frequency of appearance, and a little bit of gut feeling for the precons, and of course frequency of appearance for the draft sets.

This thing's growing fast! Thanks, Peoyogon!

Stealth_Meister I think the Vintage Masters Brindle Shoat might count. I'm not sure about online-only sets.

You can format this deck so that it's presented in a list format. Copy the deck list here into the deckbuilding section under the Mainboard tab, putting one card name per line like

4 Blightsteel Colossus

and it will format properly.

For the deck itself, Simian Spirit Guide and Seething Song are currently banned in Modern, and Sneak Attack and Crystal Vein have not been printed in a Modern-legal set. If you change the format option to Legacy or Casual, it would be legal there.

ThatTroutThing Yeah, I might have overtuned it a little.
