The Fro Knows: Our Eldritch Overlords

TFK HeatlessE Week Top Header JPG1

Editor’s note: this article was originally submitted to me a couple weeks back; at precisely the same time Splinter Twin and Summer Bloom were being banned in Modern. Unfortunately; due to an illness, I’ve been unable to publish it until now. After conferring with Tyler to make sure the deck is still viable, I’ve decided to publish it here today in it’s entirety. As always, we’re delighted to have The Fro here on our website and hopefully now that I’m feeling better we can get back to bringing you his awesome articles on a more regular basis. Thank you for your understanding.

I haven’t been a big fan of competitive Modern lately. It’s true. For the longest time, I was enamoured with the format over Standard just for the sheer variety of things you got to do, but in recent months Modern had grown stale to the point where you were either Twin, Burn, Amulet Bloom, or Jund/Abzan. It was frustrating knowing that my playing beloved Tron deck was almost pointless in the face of noninteractive combos, a flurry of Burn spells, and enough land destruction effects to choke a Wurmcoil Engine. I still loved casual Modern where we were just playing whatever tier 2 decks we could think of, and while that was certainly fun, the competitive player in me was eager to find something that could tackle this godawful metagame.

My prayers were answered last week from a source of ancient evil, beyond mortal comprehension, speaking words unable to be formed by the human tongue. You know, Magic Online. There was a Mono-Black Eldrazi deck running rampant online that centred on exiling the opponent’s graveyard and abusing the processor Eldrazi from Battle for Zendikar, such as Blight Herder and Wasteland Strangler, while also using Eldrazi Temple and Eye of Ugin to cast bigger Eldrazi like Oblivion Sower as early as turn 3. The synergy between Eye of Ugin and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes it so that with the pair in play, Eye of Ugin is effectively Mishra’s Workshop for Eldrazi, which is something I couldn’t resist trying. I tested the deck for a about a week and a half, but I felt that despite having a lot of different options and lines of play, the deck just felt too small for my liking. These are the Eldrazi we’re talking about! Colossal, eldritch abominations from beyond the multiverse! Dabbling in 3/2s and 4/5s wasn’t where I wanted to be. There had to be a better option for powering out something as fearsome as Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, so after collaborating with several other Eldrazi players online who were in the same boat, an idea popped up that we latched onto with giddy delight: Heartless Summoning.
