    Wait... remembered something. One follow up question.

    If Samurai of the Pale Curtain and some other creatures are on the battlefield, then opponent cast wrath of god. All creatures including samurai are destroyed at the same time.. would samurai still exile everything that got destroyed by wrath of god?

    Tribal lands would be cool. I do hope they print more of those.

    Also, dredge would 1000% play ichorid. The list would just look a bit different. (Think closer to bridgevine, but now it can also grind you out and is faster)


    I wanted to make sure I didn't look like an ass with my comment so I asked Sodeq considering he's probably the world's leading Dredge expert at this point. He said he doesn't see any lines with Ichorid in Modern Dredge but also echoed your sentiment that it's a very powerful engine with Bridge. At that point though, is it really Dredge still?
    Quote from Stille_Nacht »
    I'm not sure if it would be busted, but it would be played in some sort of dredge variant + bridge. Basically, this gives you another 4 hits that are "immediate" for prized amalgam, that also dont require a land like bloodghast does.

    You can adjust the deck by adding more sticher's suppliers and maybe a sac outlet like viscera seer to increase black density. It seems pretty dooable?


    With the different answers, I guess it's not sure if Ichorid will be used if it got reprinted. The reason I asked is because Dredge is a deck that I don't personally own, but have played against a couple of times already.. just out of curiosity if Ichorid would still be good in modern without the other legacy cards that helps it in legacy dredge. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    Hi, just want to be sure on this. Smile

    For example, I have Samurai of the Pale Curtain on the field..

    1. I shoot an opponent's Arclight Phoenix with lightning bolt. The phoenix would get exiled by the samurai?
    2. Opponent put an arclight phoenix from hand into the yard with discard of faithless looting. The phoenix will not be exiled by samurai?

    Ok, all clear to me now. Thanks for the explanation.

  • posted a message on Progenitus vs Rest in Peace
    thanks. Your answer to question 1 is imnportant.. so it means even if opponent controls the rip, I can still choose prog not to be exiled by rip?
    Posted in: Magic Rulings
  • posted a message on Progenitus vs Rest in Peace
    thanks. I see.. so simply choose prog shuffle ability, to avoid it getting exiled.

    Follow up questions:

    1. What if opponent is the one in control of the rest in peace?
    2. Replacement effects does not use the stack, right?

    Hi, I have a rest in peace in play. Use Nahiri, the harbinger +2 to discard progenitus into the yard. Would progenitus get exiled by rip or shuffeled back to library?

    IMO format diversity is my favorite part of Modern. You make a deck and try to use whatever resources you packed to win. It requires a lot of thought in and around the game. It encourages you to focus outside of the game building said deck, and then in matches and games determining how to best use those resources.


    You just described Magic, in a general sense.

    That is not Modern, in a competitive sense.

    I was wondering about this as well, but I'm assuming he has an LGS where the decks are indeed very diverse. There's nothing wrong with that.

    I'm going to be playing Caleb Durward's Shaman Tribal this coming Friday and possibly the Modern 1K. It doesn't mean that I think I'm gonna win a GP (or even Day 2 with my play skill) any time soon. I was able to get 2nd with Cragganwick Cremator at a Staples tournament months ago, losing to UW Control in the finals just barely, but there were only 28 players (I'm guessing because of other local tournaments). That was fun, as much as it feels bad for losing. I was just 1 win short of my goal.

    Congrats on the 2nd place win at the Staples Tournament. Smile

    After some more tests with proxies. Emrakul is indeed much better than Progenitus. The higher power and annihilator makes Emrakul much more deadly, and there's not many instant speed things that can kill her anyway. Really need to get an Emrakul next month, if I'm going to make the deck a little better. Emrakul also has some synergy with hero's blade, as she csn equip it to become 18/17.

    Three Nahiri is mandatory now. She together with the 4 magma jets help keep the gas coming.

    The deck can use four 3 cmc legends, cannot add more as it will slow down the deck too much. Kemba, Tuktuk, Squee, and Jaya. So far, Kemba is the best.. if equipped and not killed, she will quickly flood the board with cats. Tuktuk double life is good against removal heavy decks. Squee being unkillable ensures the deck always has board presence, and he equips swords each time he comes back from death. Jaya is a little hard to use with the double red, but she's another source of creature removal.

    EDIT: have only cast Mikaeus once, and he was killed right away with a path to exile... so not much data yet. Will keep testing. Smile

    Nice to see you here Madcat. It was a long time ago.. I've been seeing you post in the Legacy forums. Smile

    I don't really have much to suggest except. Maybe have one more colossus in the sideboard. Should be good against the Grixis Shadow decks, if ever you encounter them. Because the colossus laughs at Gurmag Angler, Death Shadow, and Tasigur. One of the few ways they could kill a resolved colossus is to surprise block it with snapcaster + bolt.

    Hi, have a question about Ashling the Pilgrim.

    Would she explode if she get's more than 3 counters in several turns or only explode if her ability get activated three times in a single turn? For example, if her ability only used once or twice each turn, can get her to a 5/5 or higher without exploding?

    &TLDR1: This needs a lot of thought, as there is a real danger of killing the format if you touch Faithless Looting and/or Ancient Stirrings. I know a lot of people that own Griselrand, Mardu Mancer, Dredge, Hollow one, Bridgevine, Phoenix decks and multiple of them. Those people, and I assure you that they are many, won't literally have any intention of going back to the format if they lose one or multiple 1000$ decks.


    I own Mardu Pyromancer, and have just began to enjoy using the deck.
    Banning of looting would cripple the deck, so I hope looting does not get a ban.

    No replacement for looting:

    Tormenting Voice - cost 2 mana, dumps fewer cards into the yard and has no flashback.
    Magmatic Insight - dumps lands into the yard, I need instant and sorceries put into the yard not land

    Also, looting draws first before discarding, making it superior to any red card that digs the library.
    My Mardu Pyro deck is not worth 1000$, but it would still be a monetary loss because have no other deck to put the Revelers in. The lands I can use in other decks.
