Possibly The Greatest Deck You’ll Ever See, (Or At Least One Of The Coolest)

Abbi Marie | 12th September 2018


So after writing a few blogs recently around Modern events I’d been doing it made sense to actually give you guys a look at the deck I’ve been playing! With the more practice I’ve had I’ve found it does work well and can give a good result in most FNMs and tournaments, BUT it isn’t full proof yet, there are certain match-ups I struggle against. Control and Tron are real ball-aches for me. Tron is way to hard as I don’t much disruption to stop them getting tron, and Control is just ergh. Not being able to get anything down on the board can be a real issue for most decks, who knew?!

Good Matchups

The deck does very well against creature decks, and burn decks. Humans and Elves can be a fairly easy game, side-boarding in things like Wrath of God for game 2. Burn is a very quick game if I get a Leylines in my opening hand. If I know I’m against Burn I won’t hesitate to risk taking a mulligan or two for a Leylines, as if I get the Leylines the rest of my opening hand doesn’t matter too much early game, and it gives me plenty of time to dig for my next move. Decks like Jund and Deathshadow are quite evenly matched, can go either way depending on how good of an opening hand I get. If I do get a good opening hand (preferably my 2 card combo and land) I can get ahead pretty fast. Leylines and Suppression Field also stops pesky things like Liliana.

My deck can also take a massive turn on game 2 after side-boarding. White has a very extensive sideboard gallery of cards. I can lose the first game and more often than not take game 2 and 3 in half the time.


Possible future updates:

Looking towards improvements for the deck, speed can be a real issue, so perhaps some more suitable creatures would be worth looking at, or even another Lyra. The lock works very well 99% of the time, it’s just beating down that win after the lock is done before my opponents find an answer (if they have one). Approach Of The Second Sun does work effectively in some matchups, but it is a very heavy card to try and run mainboard. I would also eventually like to run more Runed Halos, and possibly another Greater Auramancy. (Although they aren’t cheap *cries*) Getting that ultimate lock of Phyrexian Unlife, Solemnity and 2 Greater Auramancy is pretty much endgame, I’ve never had that down and lost. Mass Enchantment wipes are rarely run in modern and I’ve never come up against one.


So this is it at the moment! I’d love to hear what you guys think and any possible ideas for future improvements! Or maybe you play a similar deck? It’s by far the best deck I’ve ever built, and the one I enjoy playing the most.
