Quote from Simto »Elder-Deep Fiend is rad. Do you tweak your mana base to go for the merge cost too? Probably don't need to hehe, just curious if you'd do that.
I have almost all the cards I need to build this deck properly, I just still need to get the expensive cards like 4 Aether Vial, big Karn and stuff like that. I have all the eldrazi, ballistas, tron lands, wurmcoil and stuff like that. Just need to really expensive cards hehe.
I'm just still deciding which deck to go for in modern. This deck in general has just been having it rough the last year or so, so I'm not sure if it'd be worth the money to get the final pieces to make it competitive worthy (aka take it to FNM hehe, that's as competitive I get)
Quote from sicsmoo »Sure, at the FNM level that would be fine. Currently for the most part, the only popular decks you really want Chalice against are Phoenix, Burn and Shadow, and there are other tools you can use for those. Maxing out on Dismembers would help against Phoenix and Shadow, and having a bunch of Warping Wails would help against Phoenix and Burn, as examples. Cutting the Chalices also allows you to be more liberal with 1-mana spells because you don't have to worry about the nonbo factor, so you could play as many as 4 Relics main if it suited you, to help fight Phoenix, Dredge (which is a matchup that requires a lot of help), Shadow, etc. Hell, you could even jump straight on the degeneracy train with everyone else these days and play Surgical main. Would be nice in the Tron matchup with the Ghost Quarters.
Quote from Simto »Do you think this deck has any chance at FNM level without Chalice of the void?
Just mostly because I would like to start playing modern at FNM and colourless Eldrazi tron is the deck I have almost all cards for, but I don't want to buy some really expensive cards before Modern Horizons and seeing what changes will come up.
I still haven't decided which deck to go for in Modern and I'll probably end up on some midrange style deck because I think they're more fun in the long run, but I'm pretty much set with a deck like this. Just don't feel like buying 4 Chalice if I know I'll primarily be playing a different style deck hehe.
I can try and put together a list for critique, but it most definitely won't be optimal. Just more of a "getting into playing modern fnm" type hehe.
Quote from radekas »The new Karn and Ugin are instant inclusions to the decklist imo.
Quote from sicsmoo »All this utility is great but of course there's also the massive power play of Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice which completely shuts off all our opponents' lands and activated abilities on any other cards. After that, you can +1 on the Lattice and make a 6/6 to attack or block with. Also, with Lattice active, Scion of Urza makes massive tokens, but you can't lock them out with Creator at the same time due to the legend rule.
