While Damia is coming along nicely as a creation, it is still lacking a string identity. Decks I enjoy playing seem to frature 187 creatures and big swingy effects. I do have the Ixidron
Ixidron, Massacre Wurm
Massacre Wurm and Tooth and Nail
Tooth and Nail combo, but the deck needs more punch.
I have decided to add three new cards to the mix.
- Genesis Wave
Genesis Wave - a big flashy card which can change the landscape in a heartbeat.
- Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen - A monster in his own right and a card that is really nasty with Genesis Wave
- Sea Gate Oracle
Sea Gate Oracle - Included as a means of digging deeper into my library. This card is not the strongest and may be lucky to survive.
The will be replacing
- Myojin of Night's Reach
Myojin of Night's Reach - Powerful card, but does not play well with the 187 theme as it needs to be cast.
- Beacon of Unrest
Beacon of Unrest - I have never cast this card in anger and think that Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is better in every way.
- Sudden Spoiling
Sudden Spoiling - Didn't do what I wanted so it is on the bench

So Modern has been launched as the new format, and already disliked due to it being combo central. For a mage who delights in turning creatures sideways this is not good news. Luckily I know people who also like turning critters sideways and so we have reached an agreement to do just that.
25 New Decks
Yup! Thats right. 25 new modern decks. Ok some are not so new but the total of 25 stiill stands. Check out the MTGO current page for all of the Modern decks on offer.
