Modern Loam Harvest

Based on people’s feedback on the Modern MBC deck I posted, there clear suggestion was to make the most of pox by adding Life from the Loam. I rebuilt the deck with this in mind, stealing heartily from some Legacy decks along the way. Here’s the list.

Modern Loam Harvest

Creatures (5)
Eternal Witness
Shriekmaw
Tombstalker

Instants (3)
Geth’s Verdict

Sorceries (21)
Raven’s Crime
Smallpox
Wrench Mind
Life from the Loam
Maelstrom Pulse
Worm Harvest

Planeswalkers (4)
Liliana of the Veil

Artifacts (1)

Lands (26)
Verdant Catacombs
Forest
Twilight Mire
Swamp
Marsh Flats
Overgrown Tomb
Tectonic Edge

Without the cycling lands the card draw is less powerful than in Legacy, but between the hand disruption and land destruction, it generally pans out okay. I’m certainly interested in exploring this archetype further, as you can sideboard into The Rock relatively easily with a transformative sideboard of Bobs and Goyfs.

Give it a spin, let me know what you think.
