  1. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    This is a good strategy point.

    Cards like Wall of Omens, Plumeveil, Augur of Bolas, Edifice of Authority can force the opponent to commit multiple creatures to the battlefield so you can clean up...
  2. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    20 lands should be enough if you also have 4 Sol Ring, Timeless Dragons, and blue draw spells like Brainstorm/Preordain. Those cards help you find the right lands on time.

    I prefer a lot of basic...
  3. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    Prairie Stream is to have an Island-Plains searchable by Timeless Dragon so Dragon can fix blue mana. At least 1 copy seems good. The other budget Island-Plains enter tapped. Untapped Prairie Stream...
  4. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    Classic Island is a very strong card. It enters the battlefield untapped, costs 0 life, and doesn't lose to things like Blood Moon or Back to Basics. You could even play your own Back to Basics if...

  7. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    Agree on Celestial Colonnade. I didn't realize how much cheaper those have become. When UW was big in Modern, they were over $20 a piece. Now they are budget-friendly. 2-3 copies seems fine. It's a...
  8. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    In your shoes, I'd start with UW control.

    You've said:

    no broken combos (unfun for friends)
    don't want to accelerate a big threat on turn 2 or end the game too quickly (unfun for friends)...
  9. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    This is the #1 problem.

    UR's only plan is to be the most efficient and race. That's because UR lacks lategame tools. UW and UB scale better into the lategame, but UR's Lightning Bolt and Daze look...
  10. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    It's not just that. Many card choices in the deck don't make sense in the budget version.

    Brainstorm is bad without fetchlands. Ponder gets worse too. Preordain could be better.

    Daze is bad...
  11. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    So what kind of deck style are you looking to play then?

    You don't want fast broken combos, right? Do you want to play a fast aggro deck? A disruptive deck? A slow control deck? You have many...
  12. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    In a no-ban budget Legacy format, the low-hanging fruit starts with
    4 Sol Ring
    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Mind Twist
    and other big mana black haymakers.

    With access to that much mana, you're just going...

    Re: NO Painter

    I tested a few games. It's not good enough. If you cut back on the Grindstone plan, it's just a GSZ + NO deck, which means it plays out as a worse version of Elves. The only thing going for it is the...

    Re: Bumbleberry Pie

    If FoW + Yorion + Sanctum is the core, you still want high enchantment count and ETB triggers, so Estrid + Aminatou + Teferi fits well. The combo with Trial of Ambition is very strong, too.
