Usual sweep through of the new set to see what's worth including. This one gave us a couple of sweet options! Irenicus's Vile Duplication is better than Sakashima in our deck because of the flying, and the fact that it pumps Rielle in the gy; Wild Magic Surge is a powerful removal piece that helps to give us another way to deal with problem enchantments; and Decanter of Endless Water isn't *super* strong, but we'll take all the incidental limitless hand size effects we can get! May be adding more after the commander decklists are spoiled, but I'm happy with this so far.

Revision 50

Added/removed cards:
-1 Izzet Charm
-1 Ornithopter of Paradise
-1 Sakashima the Impostor
+1 Decanter of Endless Water
+1 Irenicus's Vile Duplication
+1 Wild Magic Surge

Updates I've been able to make in the past while, which make some minor improvements to the deck's manabase and removal. Cyc Rift is a home run obviously, Tower should always have been here (and has been for ages, but I forgot to add it to the online list), and Cephalid Coliseum and Otawara, Soaring City have both been basically free swap-ins that work incredibly well with the plan. Still potentially looking to find a place for the new Tezzeret, but that remains to be seen!

Revision 40

Added/removed cards:
-1 Flood of Tears
+1 Cephalid Coliseum
+1 Cyclonic Rift
+1 Otawara, Soaring City

Another small update, adding Attunement (a card I'd completely forgotten about that breaks wide open) and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces as an additional finisher/way to copy Rielle as I opened one recently.

Couple of minor updates, adding 2 cycling lands for some utility and another couple of powerful pieces. Currently testing out a small wizard package, so stay tuned to see if it makes the final cut!

Added/removed cards:
-1 Harmonic Prodigy

Going back over the last few spoiler seasons to check if there was anything I missed, and Witch's Clinic absolutely fits that bill! It's basically a free slot giving us a way to gain huge swaths of life later in the game and maybe play some politics as well, I'm real happy with it!

Revision 31

Added/removed cards:
+1 Witch's Clinic

Changed amounts:
-1 Island

Quick update for anybody interested, the last couple of weeks have been focused on trying out Crimson Vow cards and rejigging the deck appropriately to fit any tools I thought were worth it in the long run. However, the biggest update by far is actually in a card I completely forgot existed up until recently- Chandra's Ignition. The card is absolute gas in the deck- we have very few non-Rielle creatures that aren't disposable, so it essentially acts as a second copy of Immolating Gyre, with the added benefit of ending games out of nowhere in the later stages. I've been exceptionally happy with how it's performed so far, and while Triskaidekaphile is a funny (and legitimately attainable) wincon, Ignition just adds too much consistency to our game plan to pass up.

What's the payoff here? Is it just Tooth + Whale + Helix to pump something an infinite amount? If so, I'd absolutely be moving Drift of Phantasms into the main, it's not an artifact but it's a worthwhile transmute to guarantee one of your pieces. It's also worth noting that Consider might be a little better than Opt here, because you have ways to recur things from the graveyard. Otherwise, really sick setup!!

New Primers / Modular Landfall Series: Part 1 (Gx Landfall, 2 Decks In 1)
« on: December 15, 2021, 03:28:34 pm »
Hi there! Welcome to the core of my Modular Landfall deck (based on the articles that Tomer from MTGGoldfish released about Kicker and Auras).

I always find it really hard to decide what deck to build, and what strategy I want to focus on on a particular day. I also struggle with wanting to make decks with *similar* themes, but not exactly focused on the same thing. That's why I gravitated so quickly to the idea of a "Modular" EDH deck- a deck that consists of a mono-colour Core (in this case, green), and two sets of augmentative cards of a different colour that allow you to explore the 'core' strategy you're focusing on in different ways!

This core in particular is focusing on Landfall, and currently consists of two decks- one UG Aesi deck (based on my previous list here: that focuses on generating tons of card advantage and value to win the game using one of several combos; and one GW Maja, Bretagard Protector deck that wants to use our lands to flood the board with tokens and overrun for the win instead! I'm currently working on RG Omnath fatties and BG Gitrog as well, so stay tuned for those!

I'm really happy with how this turned out, and I'm looking forward to tweaking the decks further as I go! For simplicity's sake, I'm going to link both the 'upgrade packs' of cards to morph this core into one of the above strategies, as well as the full decks themselves here. Please feel free to provide feedback, and if you have any other ideas for me I'd love to hear them!!
