Magical Monday on Tuesday 7.22.14

Sorry for the late post guys, got some junk going on in the real world that needed my attention and just didn’t have the list ready to go. Past of my problem is that it is is modern time again and i don’t really know the modern meta, although i am crunching as fast as i can….


Something i think that might be good is something i saw from Kibler, a Pillar of the Paruns build around. And i do really like his list with a few tweaks. But this is not about how i would tweak his list this is how i steal his shell and run.

4 City of Brass
4 Mana Confluence
4 Pillar of the Paruns
4 Gemstone Mine
4 Reflectiong Pool
2 Forest
1 Miren, the Moaning Well (For decks with lots of mans)
x Vesuva/Forbidden Orchard??

But unlike Kibler, i like the idea of a much more control deck and Planeswalkers…

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Ajani Vengeant
Kiora, the Crashing Wave
Ral Zarek
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
Xenagos, the Reveler
Venser, the Sojourner
Vraska the Unseen

I also like removal.
Abrupt Decay
Lighting Helix

And counter spells

Fleecemane Lion
Qasali Pridemage
Coiling Oracle
Kitchen Finks
Fulminator Mage
Doran, the Siege Tower
Mystic Snake
Murderous Redcap
Huntmaster of the Fells

Oh and all the 2+ color “Charm” spells

Wow that is a list of powerful spells. Assuming 36 non land spells what can we build?

3 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
2 Ajani Vengeant
2 Vraska the Unseen
4 Venser, the Sojourner

4 Coiling Oracle
4 Kitchen Finks
4 Mystic Snake
2 Murderous Redcap
2 Huntmaster of the Fells

3 Abrupt Decay
4 Counterflux
4 Voilslime

Gold Control? Ie Venser, is the man he is resetting everything, yes including other planeswalkers.

Did you know there are 15 gold planeswalkers and 12 of them are good in a all planeswalkers deck? I don’t think a deck like that is super good but for fun, maybe?

Okay my Gold Agro deck

3 Domri Rade
2 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
2 Venser, the Sojourner

4 Qasali Pridemage
4 Kitchen Finks
2 Murderous Redcap
4 Fanatic of Xenagos
2 Anathemancer
1 Hellhole Rats
4 Spark Trooper

3 Abrupt Decay
2 Terminate
3 Lighting Helix

There are a lot of non-mans in the deck but not so many that Domri Rade wont hit. But still puts Venser to work.

Gold Goldfish
4 Lighting Helix
4 Boros Charm
2 Golgari Charm
4 Selesnya Charm

3 Qasali Pridemage
4 Sedraxis Specter
4 Kitchen Finks
4 Fanatic of Xenagos
4 Spark Trooper
4 Giant Solifuge
– 1 land


Now i know i don’t know about 7 years of cards in modern so these are mostly using cards i either remember or have seen being playing in modern by other players. But i think going gold is a real thing here. Also i just happen to have the mana base for going gold vs a normal modern mana base. No fetch lands for me. 😦
