Who Needs A Mana Curve? – FNM Recap 3/4/16


Cash Night


Hello everyone, welcome back to the FNM recap. This past week was cash night, meaning all of our prizes were given out as cash! We also have two new lists this week, starting with Dan Leff’s Red/Green Through the Breach Modern list:


4x Primeval Titan

3x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

4x Obstinate Baloth

3x Courser of Kruphix

4x Sakura Tribe Elder

4x Search for Tomorrow

2x Pyroclasm

1x Kozilek’s Return

3x Sudden Shock

4x Through the Breach

4x Summoning Trap

4x Wooded Foothills

3x Stomping Ground

3x Cinder Glade

3x Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle

4x Forest

7x Mountain

Dan’s deck is all about cheating on mana. The deck wants to ramp and play big things earlier than they should be able to be played. Even when the deck doesn’t ramp, it can have Emrakul, the Aeons Torn attacking for fifteen and annihilating for six on turn four using Through the Breach. Another fun trick the deck can do is Through the Breach a Primeval Titan and fetch out Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle on each trigger.


Our other list this week is actually mine from our Standard event, and it’s also a Red/Green ramp list:
11x Forest
3x Mountain
2x Cinder Glade
3x Wooded Foothills
4x Shrine of the Forsaken Gods
4x Sanctum of Ugin
1x Blighted Woodland

3x Rattleclaw Mystic
4x Worldbreaker
2x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

2x Chandra, Flamecaller
3x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

4x Oath of Nissa
4x Nissa’s Pilgrimage
4x Explosive Vegetation
3x Kozilek’s Return
3x Hedron Archive


1x Void Winnower
1x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon
1x Kozilek’s Return
3x Crumble to Dust
4x Jaddi Offshoot
2x Plummet
1x Kozilek, the Great Distortion
2x Oblivion Sower


This deck is also about playing large threats ahead of the curve. The deck wants to ramp as early as possible, with the ideal being Rattleclaw Mystic into either of the four-drop ramp spells into a turn-four World Breaker. The deck can go even bigger if it needs to, going up to Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and even Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, if it needs spot removal. The deck is a lot of fun, and if you’re not expecting a fast metagame (and you’re sick of playing Rally) this is probably a good choice.
