Quote from IgnithasThe second one is in my opinion to powerfull, I would add that if you have another forest or mountain that isn't basic or named "Don't fetch me dual", you can't tap don't fetch me dual for mana.
Quote from Ignithas
I think this is trolling. When you don't use W creatures, you autoloose to most combo decks. And using GW creatures (I think you would do that) will result in massive card disadvantage. Plus Gavony Township and Cavern of Souls make your deck inconsistent.
Quote from bocephusYou dont have to play white and you can still get out creatures like Teeg and such playing GSZ.
Quote from bocephusCost one less then tinker and has legs (I wont even go into the extra cost for tinker)... To me thats better.
Quote from hellgrammiteWinter Campaign GWU
Creatures can’t attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays X for each of those creatures, where X is the number of creature’s under his or her control less one (X can’t be less than 0.)
Quote from Konstant1nI was wondering why Council of the Absolute had the 'non-creature' clause then I remembered... This is modern magic.
Quote from SteBI saw Elvis riding a unicorn with his buddy Michael Jackson on the night sky yesterday. You can say it didnt happen all you want. It did.
Quote from MastodonWhen I throw a deck together, all I do is stick 3 surgical extractions and 3 pithing needles in the sideboard. Then I think to myself "that'll do"
Quote from honestabeYeah, then if you DRAW then, you're going to be hard pressed to actually cast them. Plus, mono green means no actual removal aside from Dismember, which seems poor. This also gets around the reason GSZ is banned, which is homogeny among decks. Sure, every MONO GREEN deck plays GSZ; I think we're all fine with that.
Quote from FinnWhat a cool topic.
Not available in Modern
Glimpse of nature (is this banned in modern? It feels too fun to be legal.)
Quote from bocephusYou are not going to draw all of them in your deck.
Quote from LectrysLegacy Mono-Green Elves--both Aggro and Combo--sometimes tries Gaddock Teeg in the sideboard. Teeg is more popular in white-splashing builds for obvious reasons. I think I've also seen Teeg in the occasional Legacy GB Nic Fit board.
I don't think I've seen Qasali Pridemage in either Mono-Green Elves or GB Nic Fit, though. The risk of drawing green creatures with unplayable splashes is too high.
Probably the last remnants of the unplayable in decks are (besides Dredge/Legacy Show and Tell/Vintage Oath of Druids/Vintage Tinker/Legacy Reanimator/etc.) Progenitus in Legacy Natural Order decks and post-board Ruric Thar, the Unbowed in Legacy NO Combo Elves (which does not splash red). Both are always 1-ofs, even in decks with no library manipulation.
One off-colour "GSZ" target may be fine. Two are pushing it.
Quote from honestabeI'm not saying you will, but this is Modern, the format is EXTREMELY unforgiving, and if you're trying to tell me, that an essentially wasted draw step DOESN'T matter, then you're blatently trolling. (though, you already might be)
Quote from Elric VIIICancel Sucks U
Counter target spell unless that spell's controller pays 1.
If ~ was kicked, counter target spell.
Quote from JaceTheWalletShredder
Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from germanturkeyforce spike would be barely playable in the format.
Quote from A.J.GibsonFor counterspells, how about:
Mana Flux - 1UU
Counter target spell. If ~ was kicked, draw a card.
Quote from A.J.Gibson
Imbue - UUU
Counter target spell. You may place a creature card with a CMC of 3 or less from your hand onto the battlefield.
