    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    This is very much valid. Ultimately, Ideal might just not be worth it for these reasons. However, I do think that Sanctum Weaver makes the "uncastable" cards issue less of a problem. I'm also...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    Modern Horizons 2 has introduced a number of interesting cards which I think are worth considering for Enduring Ideal shells. Enchantments are a theme in the set and there are lot of tools for GW...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    Completely accurate. I hadn't considered Explosive Vegetation, so I guess there's no reason to get excited by Terrain Shift.

    MH2 is looking good though: Seal of Cleansing, Soul Snare, & Out of...

    Coming in MH2:

    "Terrain Shift" 3G
    Sorcery
    Search for a basic land card from your library, put it into the battlefield, then shuffle.

    Rebound

    This could be relevant to Ideal in that it...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I was just testing out another build of the deck that I found on Channel Fireball which was piloted by MTGO user, Rinko, from whom I had previously posted a 6th place MTGO Prelim list. The list is a...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    The value of Ideal in the "impenetrable fortress" is that the final piece that truly locks the game up varies depending on the match up. Since the main lock pieces are 6-8 mana spells, it's more...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    This whole post was really insightful. If we assess various builds of Enduring Ideal in the context of these 3 archetypes, I think the deck is essentially just a worse version of each (and even...

    Portable Hole seems great. Path has kind of been down in terms of playability of late, as giving an additional land to some decks can be extremely punishing (vs. Prowess decks, for example). I...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Lurrus has been widely adopted for Shadow builds, though not universally. It seems they're mostly a Rakdos deck now, though I've seen Mardu, Grixis, and Jund builds as well. I guess it really depends...

    I noticed an Enduring Ideal deck top 8'ed an online Prelim recently, here's the list:

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    My experience is that tutoring up a plains is actually better than drawing a blind card, as we want to hit our land drop every turn. Yes, if the game draws out, which it does do with some regularity,...

    I had tried a Yorion build of my WU list and found that it was different, but not really better. As you've noted, while you draw into Enduring Ideal less frequently, you are also less likely to draw...

    Nether Dance of Doom (Esper Stax)

    Ported from Standard, to Pioneer, to Modern. This deck basically came into being because I wanted to play Nether Spirit, and this allowed me to do so while playing a bunch of other pet cards. I think...

    Fortuitously, Xmage just released an update and added ZNR to the mix, so I've done a bit of testing with Zoo. I tried building a Shadow/Tribal Flames version, but it just seemed so clunky. I get the...

    I don't have much to add to the furthering of the Ideal deck at the moment, but I do think that we may be reaching a space where some divergent strategies become realistic. Specifically, the Heliod,...

    That's fair. I guess without Porphyry Nodes in the main any longer, Abolisher might be more practical. I like T3feri, but felt that protecting him might be difficult, though maybe not against control...

    Any consideration to going the direction of Jeskai Saheeli? The core of the deck is very similar, but you have the "copy cat" combo to just win. Teferi, Time Raveler is a solid edition that makes...
