    I mean yes answers have not kept pace with creatures. Good Creatures usually have ETBs with the best having Death Triggers, Recurssion and on Cast Triggers. Every counter is 3 CMC which is too slow to matter in Modern. Every wipe is 4 CMC with no Cost Reduction. The answers today basically need to place back on the bottom of the library or exile since plenty of threats have no issue recurring from mere death.

    Also Nexus itself was fine some combo of Wilderness Reclamation, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Hydroid Krasis and Expansion/Explosion is what pushed Nexus over the top. Mostly the first one, the other three are basically finishers.


    This is the reason I believe we need Prohibit to be reprinted into Modern or something similar which can also counter uncounterable creature spells.

    As for Modern as a whole, I guess it's good to just play what you like and not worry about metagaming or whatever, and just play what you like.


    I think this is what MTG was intended to be from the start Smile

    Just wanted to share this video about how the topper packs are searchable. Uploaded by a guy who was able to figure out how to do it. Caution for those buying overpriced topper packs on Ebay and the like.

    Cards for Blue as I really think denial needs help in Modern:

    Deny UU
    Instant
    Exile target spell with converted mana cost 4 or less from the game. Exile Deny from the game.
    " Deny... deny everything..! "

    Defy The Odds U
    Instant
    Counter target creature, sorcery or artifact spell with converted mana cost 2 or less. If the spell cannot be countered, then exile it instead.
    Use only mana from a basic Island to cast this spell.
    " One, two, three... why can't it be me? "

    Tides Rebuttal U
    Instant
    You may return a basic Island to your hand rather than pay Tides Rebuttal's mana cost.
    Choose one:
    • Counter target sorcery or instant spell with converted mana cost 1 or less.
    • Return target creature an opponent controls with converted mana cost 2 or less to its owner's hand.
    If you returned a basic Island to cast this spell, draw a card.
    " The tides come and the tides go. "


    Prison Isle
    Land
    As Prison Isle comes into play target nonbasic land an opponent controls loses all abilities and its controller chooses one mana type. Target land may only produce mana of that type.
    tap symbol : Add C
    " Wherever they construct the prison, the country always ends up paying for it. "

    the humans deck is broken in the sense that it breaks one of the most important aspects of magic, you need to choose a color to gain access to certain effects, and normally, if you splash a color, it comes with a downside (for example, be color screwed), but this doesnt happen to humans. you can choose anything and painfree, cause your manabase is PERFECT, and, with the philosophy of WOTC, everyset you have more and more powerful humans to feed the deck, and you dont even care what are the colors of such creatures. it's hilarious

    (english is not my language, so sorry for any mistakes)


    Agreed! Probably a good move to ban Cavern of Souls at this time and also provide a much earlier solution to mana abusive decks as Field of Ruin is just 1 turn too slow. Also would like to see Chalice of the Void banned if they do end up banning Cavern of Souls.

    Only chance to get cards we want reprinted into Modern would be via core sets like M19 unfortunately.

    With how things are progressing in Modern currently does anyone else feel that Force of Will is viable or needed in Modern? I honestly believe with the power creep we have seen over the years the card could be fair game in our format. What do you guys think?

    Cards I would like to see the light of day in Modern:

    Oasis of Treasure
    Land
    As Oasis of Treasure comes into play, choose a color.
    tap, Pay 1 life: Add one mana of the chosen color to your mana pool.
    Pay 1 life, sacrifice Oasis of Treasure: Destroy target non-basic land which can only produce colorless or no mana.

    Dark Summoning Ritual - B
    Sorcery
    Add BBB to your mana pool. Use this mana only for black creature spells with converted mana cost 3 or less.

    Deny - UU
    Instant
    Remove target spell with converted mana cost 4 or less from the game. Remove Deny from the game.

    Oasis of treasure seems like it does nothing against pretty much everything in the format except Tron. And it is so narrow that it seems like it would never even be used for that. I get that tapping for a chosen color is beneficial but I can't see it actually seeing play.

    Dark Summoning Ritual still seems overpowered. 1 mana to cast 3 Gravecrawlers or 3 Bloodsoaked Champions? Seems pretty good. I get those are not the best creatures ever, but what is Ritual supposed to make better?

    Deny seems pretty solid to be honest. I wouldn't mind seeing it printed. But, why exile instead of counter (is Abrupt Decay really that much of a problem)? And, more of a templating thing, but why does your card say remove from the game when it has been "Exile" for nearly 10 years?


    Oasis of Treasure is my take on Horizon Canopy with ability to get any color of mana. Second ability can be useful against Tron for sure but also Eldrazi Temple, Inkmoth Nexus, Gavony Township, etc...

    Dark Summoning Ritual is obviously taken from Dark Ritual. This version in my opinion is the fairest it can get while still packing some power. Miss the days of suicide black so blame it on nostalgia for coming up with this one Wink

    Deny is pretty solid in my opinion too. Yeah I guess "Remove" is more old school but I'm an old school player ^^

    Should have just reprinted Cabal Coffers. Another waste of a card with the design so weak. Not worthy being rare should have been uncommon.

    Unplayable except for standard and should have been commons. Come into play tapped...jeez what a waste.

    Definitely need Gempalm Incinerator reprinted into Modern. Hope we can also get Goblin Lackey as I don't think he is over powered for the format but maybe I'm asking for too much!
