What side /tg/ think about Restore Balance? As "fun" as fish is, I'd like to play something a bit more involved then hoping for turn 1 Vile and hope to never see another one for the rest of the game.
The list I'm going for is as shone

Creatures (17)
4 Simian Spirit Guide
4 Riftwing Cloudskate
4 Durkwood Baloth
4 Greater Gargadon
1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn
Spells (19)
4 Restore Balance
4 Ardent Plea
3 Dismember
4 Violent Outburst
4 Nahiri, the Harbinger
Lands (24)
1 Breeding Pool
1 Copperline Gorge
4 Flooded Strand
1 Forest
1 Gemstone Caverns
4 Gemstone Mine
1 Island
1 Mountain
1 Plains
1 Razorverge Thicket
1 Sacred Foundry
1 Seachrome Coast
1 Steam Vents
1 Stomping Ground
1 Temple Garden
2 Wooded Foothills
1 Windswept Heath

I'm most likely going to run 3 Anger of The Gods, 3 Leyline of Sanctity. And I'll formulate the rest around my meta

You play her in addition to those cards, silly.

>>48585984
Mindcensor costing 3 makes sense, because you can hold up mana for Path, or flash it in, in addition to vialing in a Blade Splicer, or something else that actually effects the board. Thalia costing 3 and not being reactionary without vial is a massive mark against her for tempo.
You don't need Mindcensor/Arbiter #9-12. In my experience, there's just much more value to be had at the three drop sorc speed slot.

I know people are knocking spirits, but it could be legit.

Take a look at the winning lists in Standard: the good ones are tempo decks and the Modern version of that should probably be the same. I feel likeke Vial shouldn't really be played, and instead take some play style from Esper lists. Always have something to do with your mana. Flash in spirits, lots of interactions. There are a ton of options. Just need to.find the right combination of cards.

Right now I'm thinking Esper or Jeskai spirits. Hopefully, I can have a list ready Tomorrow.

Why play bad cards? Snap, clique, etc. Are just better. Same problem with faeries. Elves and merfolk work because they do broken shit.
With spirits you're just playing tempo with subpar cards to force mediocre synergy.

>> No.48587216

>>48587159
Oh man, I didn't even think about that. I was thinking about R for bolt. Helps early game interaction and gives you late game reach.

Of course, a light black splash in the form of Mana Confluence could get the best of both. Makes it weak to blood moon and ghost quarter, though.

>> No.48587264

>>48587188
Dude, of course you'd play clique and snappy. Probably 1 and 2 respectively.

And it's not a tribal deck like Merfolk or goblins. I'd play sprits because flying is so good in the format, and coupled with value. It seems pretty good.

>> No.48587977

>>48586705
Vials in a modern spirit deck would just make it a shitty merfolk deck with more interaction and less lords. A tempo/control shell would probably be better, like faeries, only rather than bitterblossom, you abuse Lingering Souls, which is much better in this format. With all the shocks and fetches, bitterblossom is too painful and slow against most aggressive decks. One sided boardwipes thanks to sefless spirit seems cute. I like it. As well as the spirit of the labyrinth + geier reach santiarium lock.

My biggest concern though is its ability to actually close out games. Ofc you're gonna be grinding out most wins, but I feel like the deck needs a better finisher. Faeries had v clique and mistbind clique to close things out.

You can see the foundations of the format already being laid. Fetchlands from Khans and the new duals from Oath make it so multicolor decks can exist but have clear and immediate drawbacks. That lets them keep a bit of a lid on New Jund or whatever equivalent of that would have cropped up, and also lets monocolor decks have a proper form and function.

Modern cards probably won't significantly depreciate in value, but it might lessen the degree to which they're rising.

>> No.48588552

>>48588264
I love queller but he's not exactly a finisher. Deep fiend is way too risky without a build to support it. The beauty of mistbind was that in a pinch you could champion a token or a land, or even better champion your bitterblossom to avoid killing yourself. Or even better, pull some cute trick where you champion a spellstutter sprite to use as counter backup when you're trying to close out a game and only have bits of removal in your hand left. Deep fiend has nothing on mistbind. Especially with no evasion.

>>48588503
That means you'd want 7 mana at the ready. If I planned on having 7 mana, I'd rather rev for 15-11

>>48588328
Too expensive and doesn't do much in the way of impacting the field. Geist is too slow for a deck that wants to play on your opponent's turn. Having only 4 flash enablers for your nonflash guys makes it risky to rely on. Vial would be good doing that, but on the same token, vial kinda sucks unless you're really packing a sizable amount of creatures.

Without a decent finisher, I'd probably fall back on using some sort of sword package. The tallowisp/aura package is cute, but it really needs to be built around to make it even playable let alone good.

Decay, EE, and Thoughtseize are the best ways to beat hate postboard, as they aren't terribly narrow answers to the hate.

Exhaustion is sweet against aggro decks. I can see why you'd run 4 of them. I run 3 cryptics mainboard because they also work against combo and control.
I've been testing with some mainboard counterspells, and I've found that 4x Spell Snare helps a ton against both aggro decks as well as control decks, as they typically run Mana Leak, Remand and Snapcasters in numbers.

Jace is there incase I run out of Waterveils before 9 mana, and he's won me the game vs infinite life melira, which felt really damn good. Otherwise he's supremely average and usually gets sided. You don't neccesarily need 4 parts if you run an alternate wincon such a Thassa/Jace/Labman, but without I'd certainly run 4 incase you end up exiling them all. Inkmoth is cool as an alternative to Jace vs infinite life too.

Counterspells are gravy mainboard, especially Spellsnare, and when you sideboard it gets so much better since you have these niche powerful counterspells.

For decks that run 4 Temporal, one might be averse to running Remands for fear of whiffing the miracle trigger, but Delay can work as a nice substitute (plus it's thematic).

Reprint 15 cards once a year in FTV style aimed at reducing the price of those cards. Imagine a $100 box with a Goyf, Lilly, Snapcaster, Mox Opal, Burnwillows, all kinds of fun shit in. Fuck it, make it $200 and they'll still sell out. Instead they make tripe like FTV annihilation and angels, which my LGS can't even sell at half RRP.

In addition to the spell snares, I'm contemplating the correct number of Cryptics for the deck. The deck needs at the very least one, I don't think it needs a playset at all (as you only ever want to see one), but I could definitely see two being a very solid number, as during matchups like Gruul Zoo and Dredge it does an excellent job at holding them back and 2 would make finding it more likely.

The main drawback for Snare is that some decks will go straight over the curve, such as Bant Eldrazi having literally no 2cmc cards.

If I were to mainboard Snare, or a second Cryptic Command when I can afford one, I'd probably trim a Mine.


Here's Mikhails list from a while back, I'd like to ask him for a more recent list but I don't speak ruskie.

Red for Fevered Visions is reasonable, there's also green splash for a green Mine (forget the name of it), but monoblue is the way to go for me anyways.
If I had to splash I'd go white for Timely, as it's such a solid speedbump in a deck that loves stalling, but the downsides to splashing imo aren't worth it.

They also have Phantasmal Image, which can protect itself by copying a lord and can be put on the battlefield at instant speed with Vial and copy a Spell Queller. This gives the deck a flexibility other tribal decks since Phantasmal Image is a blank card per say that lets you adapt you variety of situations.

I also think Bygone Bishop will be a two of because this deck isn't actually an aggro deck like Merfolk, but more of a midrange-tempo deck that'll want some way to consistently get cards in your hand so you can have answers or at least pretend you do while you leave your mana open. Then you can expend all your leftover mana in cracking clues.

It may seem slow but its consistent and generates a powerful advantage turn by turn. Even if the opponent responds with an instant you can still potentially Queller-Counter with a vial.

Token generators, specially instant-speed ones help a lot with Mausoleum wanderer too, quickly making it grow. That or Spirit Anafenza works wonders too.

Pretty sure you only go for the combo against decks that can't interact with it, dumb dumb. Against your meme Jund deck, you sacrifice a Wall of Omens to turn it into a Pia and Kiran Nalaar, or a Kitchen Finks into a Swagtusk, or a Reveillark into an Elesh Norn :^)

Yes, read the above for instances of how it's good in grindy matchups. More importantly, however, is that itt fixes the clunky problem that the deck faced before.

Cut some number of instants in favor of two chord of calling. Add 2 wall of roots.
Add another finks, and 2 eternal witness, for more chance to hit kiki from evo.

Courser is an ok 3cmc, trinket mage is a nice sb option if you pack engineered explosives.
I'd go 2 snap 2 ewitness but 3 snap is fine.
Add p&k, spellskite, scooze for bullets, maybe huntmaster main.

It prevents you from getting btfo by spot removal in a tempo sense. If they can kill something, they kill it, your 2cmc, instead of anything you play after. Basically it's a must-bolt at 2cmc in a creature-heavy deck, not because it's powerful (well its a 2/1 flyer for 2 so its ok) but because they are forced to bolt it instead of your thalia. You keep thalia and prevent loss of tempo. It's a nice one-of.

I've tested it a few times already, and honestly i think the only thing that it might benefit from right now is swagtusk in the MB. T3 Swag gives you enough breathing room against burn, and seems more useful in other matchups than finks.

Traverse the Ulvenwald doesn't seem to be as useful against most decks, but I guess with delirium it could grab you a Boseiju to stop a countered evolution being a 2 for 1. So Ulvenwald might be good SB against decks that run blue with the occasional, grabbing a snappy or some cheap value. It's just in testing Ulvenwald doesnt seem to be fast enough, if it was an instant I would dig it, even if it was 1G instead. But at sorcery speed it always seems to get in the way more than help.

----------

All in all, I'm happy with the basic idea, the toolbox needs some work, but being able to kiki turn 3/4 most of the time if your opponent is not giving you disruption is fucking amazing. Lands need fixing a little too, although that part is playable as is.

Only way I'd see running him is with Lingering Souls, and then just playing a Lingering Souls deck would be strictly better.
The problem is that Path to Exile exists, and if you sacrifice three creatures to get out your demon and I kill your demon with a removal spell, you just lost the game.

I don't know who is trying to make fun of this, but it seems like a fun deck that can control a gram easily. I'd drop the Dreads for more Reanimates though.

But, lets dissect this image.

1) I'd say without the Dreads this deck can lockdown an opponent second turn consistently.

2) You don't FoW a animate card. You FoW the entomb that way they don't have a creature in the gy to use 12 other animate cards on. I don't know about FoW a dark rit unless you just want to be a dick just to stall them out a turn.

Just look at his manabase - he kept it mono black yet not even a single wasteland. Moreover I can't even explain the existence of Reliquary Tower (I don't even want to comment on caves of koilos).

Keeping like 20 reanimation targets isn't the smartest idea ever.

Imps/dread return are also a pretty bad choice.

I can't even find explanation for duress other than "hello I'm poor" (but the guy said he's playing the game since invasion). Unmask exists, Thoughtseize exists.

> Wastelands
I think you should stick to modern. Wasteland will just make that deck slower. As it seems, Tower is probably for Jin if the game goes into turn 4 and 5. Koilos is a cheap shock land. And in a Reanimator deck, a little life loss means nothing if the game is over by turn 3 or 4. I'm guessing it's a toolbox Reanimator and not a legacy competitive Reanimator. He probably plays it with just friends and locals. Imps are a critter and free discard if you have fatties in your hand. It's kind of a staple for mono-black Reanimators. I might even run 3 of them in that deck. Duress is probably for FoW and gy hate. Thoughtseize won't get rid of anything Duress won't in this type of deck. I doubt he worries about creatures at all. Tiers are not always the cream of the crop. They are just what is popular at the moment. This Reanimator is actually pretty decent. I'd add in more Reanimates and Therapies, but other than that it's good as it is. The only way to make it significantly better beyond what I suggested is to splash in U for FoW and draw. That's it.

You can make a deck that has modern legal cards, but a "modern deck" is one that is designed to operate in the competitive modern metagame.

I cannot fathom why you think posting that superfriends list here is going to get a result that isn't "take that shit to a casual thread"

You've had this explained to you countless times, so take the advice given to you. Make it tuned for competitive, or get out.

Jace the Mind Sculptor is not as powerful as Nahiri, he takes a very long time to close out a game and starts at such a low loyalty value. His bounce is strong but against top tier decks that won't get you far. Gonna bounce jeskai controls snapcaster? Anything in affinity after turn 4? Ohohoho

Anyways honestly he was the strongest planeswalker at the time but Nahiri is a much better and faster win con and no amount of deck control on jaces behalf can make up for a four turn faster game ending clock. The biggest deal with an unban is giving players access to the brainstorm effect again, but you aren't getting it until turn four at least, so who knows how many fetches you'll have.

I think modern would survive a jtms unban.
