Magical Monday 8.4.14

Do i need to tell you that Modern/multicolor is still rolling around in my brain?  I would hope not as Glittering Wish is just super in my eyes right now.


Just look at last weeks list with a few things moved to the sideboard and wishes added.

2 Ajani Vengeant
3 Kiora, the Crashing Wave
2 Ral Zarek
1 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
1 Xenagos, the Reveler


4 Lighting Helix
3 Abrupt Decay
2 Jund Charm
2 Electrolyze
2 Counterflux
2 Voilslime
1 Mystic Snake
4 Glittering Wish


1 Geist of Saint Traft
2 Kitchen Finks
1 Izzet Staticaster
1 Olivia Voldaren
1 Trostani, Selesnya’s Voice

4 Mana Confluence
4 Pillar of the Paruns
4 Gemstone Mine
4 Reflecting Pool
2 Forbidden Orchard
2 Forest
1 Island/Swamp/Plains
1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
1 Venser, the Sojourner
1 Geist of Saint Traft
1 Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius
Just with those changes the deck takes a real twist. If we flush out the rest of our tool box some, trying to be careful not to go toooo tool boxy i have the following short list.

Meddling Mage
Qasali Pridemage
Fleecemane Lion / Doran, the Siege Tower
Harmonic Sliver
Fulminator Mage
Detention Sphere
Treasured Find
Supreme Verdict
Rakdos’s Return
And a mix of all the different cards with the word charm in them.
Here is a link if you want to see all the gold + modern charms

The downsides of Wish is it is a sorcery and they get to know what you are bringing in but the pure power level is off the chart right now. But can this deck beat the big decks right now?

I don’t know.

But i have another list in the works in the back of my brain, also using our going gold mana base with wish and charms but this one is much more Control/combo like.

I plan to use things like
Abrupt Decay
Maelstrom Pulse
Supreme Verdict
to keep the board clean

Lighting Helix
to disrupt

Glittering Wish
Treasured Find
Glimpse the Unthinkable
Breaking // Entering
Nyx Weaver

To self mill/tutor for
Flesh // Blood
Spellheart Chimera

to kill with.

Is it good? I don’t know. It is fast? not as fast as some of the decks out there. But it could really lock things up until you decide to win.
