Dec 5, 2018I might have to play a less optimal version of Pyro Prison this FNM; my package with the last of the cards I needed got delayed by USPS and now there's no estimate for when it'll arrive. -___-Posted in: Control
Dec 3, 2018On a random note, MTG Goldfish did a very fun to watch video of a 12 Moon Deck that resembles Pyro Prison.Posted in: Control
Dec 3, 2018Dumb question since I've finally got all the pieces together and plan on running Pyro Prison this Friday.Posted in: Control
How do you know what to set Chalice on versus decks? Just from experience? I know setting it on one hoses a lot of early game plays, and that two is devastating against Merfolk and I think Humans too? Just looking for some general advice as well for a first timer.
Dec 2, 2018Posted in: Aggro & TempoQuote from WickedApp »Quote from jokerstyle00 »So my LGS has no combo except for KCI and no Storm or Infect either. People play either control decks like Blue Moon, Jeskai, or UR Thing, midrange like Jund, and creature tribal like Humans or Elves. How would people approach building a Sisters list for this kind of meta? I have the Modern Event Deck cards and I can splash for either Black or White.
I would start with 2 Eidolon of Rhetoric try to slow down tempo, spirits are great blockers spectral procession or Linguaring souls .
2 worship Thalia, Heretic Cathar , maybe a fog effect instant vs elves, 1 mana tith to keep them honest, Kambal, Consul of Allocation vs control.
Well thats my 2 cents worth. Most of the match ups I have had vs those decks have been 60-40 in my favor. Jund and Elves being the harder match ups. If elves does not explode early it becomes a huge grind out match with SS wining due to huge life shield and better flyers and a monstrous Cat.
Mm, so you'd recommend the black splash then? I have a full set of seize and inquisition too, along with tidehollows.

Nov 29, 2018Hey all, Modern player here with some Skred experience; really enjoyed the control aspect of that deck so I decided to move here for a bit and see what happens. Here's my preliminary list:Posted in: Control
Nov 29, 2018Here's my attempt at making a minimal white splash stompy. Also wondering if Razorverge Thicket can replace the last two fetches of ten since Zendikar fetches are $$$. Also based on cards I already own.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
Oct 31, 2018Based off a brew that someone in a discord I frequent shared. Original designer created a monoblack version, this is my take on a Rakdos (BR) version. Curious to see if people think it might be FNM-worthy.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)

If I wanted to run a full set of Obsession, what would I cut in UW? And what would I run instead of Vial in a Vial-less Bant build? Curious.
Oct 29, 2018Decided to finish building this deck since my LGS is shifting more to aggro (Humans, Elves). The only combo deck is KCI and in 2 months of playing there, the only Tron that's made an appearance is Eldrazi Tron. I'm working off of thnkr's list from a few posts ago, slightly modified, just waiting for the cards to come in. The manabases at my LGS besides elves also happen to be greedy (there's a Ponza player who generally does very well).Posted in: Control
Oct 28, 2018Posted in: Aggro & TempoQuote from mapccu »cryptic command, settle the wreckage, engineered explosives, supreme verdict, exhaustion, hibernate, weath of god, day of judgment, detention sphere are all servicible sweepers or anti-wide effects. Any of the destruction spells require higher selfless spirit counts.
blessed alliance, path to exile, dismember are fine for removing key targets.
Counters and queller can really put a damper on the biggest plays. I would avoid unified will and look to cards like unsubstantiate to give you an mode to use vs vial/cavern heavy tribal decks. I've greatly enjoyed spell pierce as a 2 of in the main - but I board d out of counters in these matches.
Humans has an incredibly hard time killing you through a worship. Elves isn't impacted by it. GB can just drain kill you. GW can ballista down your board and then dome you for whatever they need unless you have the hexproof lock - at which point they just dig for a rec sage. Rec save may already be coming in because of vials anyway - esp finally if they are worried about grafdiggers cage.
Just some notes from my games at the LGS with UW vial.
Is it worth using Echoing Truth instead of unsubstantiate? I'd rather not go hunting after and spend more money. :/
Oct 28, 2018Posted in: Aggro & Tempochart a course is as good as we can get in terms of 2-mana card drawing effect, but i still prefer Curious Obsession out of the two as UW spirits is good at protecting its creatures.
Obviously there are games where creatures can be picked off one by one or you flood/screw, but it should be a small amount of the times. If you want to better grind through your opponents i strongly suggest the bant vialless version with collected company, rattlechains and kira, great glass spinner: you will lose some amount of speed but you'll be better equipped to grind through interaction (your deck will be pre-boarded for grindy matchups).
Running 20 lands in UW is fine imho, one land will not change the chances drastically. I would advise against it if you plan to splash black for lingering souls.
Thanks for the tips! The only control decks that show up regularly at my LGS these days are either Jeskai or some form of UR, so I deal mainly with counters and red removal. Many more aggro decks have started showing up recently so I'm trying to figure out what to play and board against things like Humans and Elves.

A consideration for additional vapor snag or dismembers as removal could be made, but i'm not a fan of lowering the creature count
Hmm okay. Also for Curious Obsession or Chart a Course, which should I run, should I, and how many copies? One thing that kicked my butt last time I ran spirits was running out of threats because control decks grinded me out with removal and counters. Also, is it bad cutting lands to 20 with Vial? I got flooded a ridiculous amount and had to mull down to 4 twice in a row one match.
