MTG Modern ▷ Living End FAKEOUT Deck! ◁ w/ Crashing Footfalls【 Modern Horizons 】


you thought modern’s but hole couldn’t
get any bigger but after I show you my new deck you will rethink everything you
know about big but holes. let’s start our stretch with living end not the poser
living end with elected dominance the og living end with Cascade not that long
ago this deck was considered to be the craziest of graveyard decks because for
a three mana it can board wipe the field and get all creatures back from
graveyard the deck works like this we have island outburst and we have demonic
dread but card abilities don’t matter all that matters is cascade with these
cascade cards we dig through the top of our deck until we hit a car that cost
less than three and in the living end deck the only card in the deck that
technically cost less than three is living end so in other words if we play
any of these eight cards we’re guaranteed to find a living in and
finding one of these eight cards is super easy because our whole deck is
just discarding creatures and drawing a card and once living end fires off all
those discarded features come back to play but if living in decks are so good
why are they only make up 0.26 percent of the metagame
and for the sake of comparison there are twice as many five-card niven Bizet
decks in the meta game compared to living end that’s how you know that
living index have truly died so the question is why did living index flop
the short answer to that question is that even though living end is crazy
good game one by game two if living n sees any graveyard hate and it just
creeps on itself if we look at graver decks that are currently doing really
well the big difference between these decks and living index is that these X
can still function somewhat in the face of graveyard Hey whereas living n can
not reg and been join can still at the very least hard caster cards whereas if
living index trying to hard cast their stuff they’re gonna need to wait until
turn 5 and that ain’t gonna happen and you might be thinking why don’t
living index bring in nature’s claim or thoughts these like these other decks do
and the answer is that they can’t because the Cascade cards will hit
anything that cost less than three so the conclusion is living end is great
game one and horrible and games two and three so how will Daddy fix this problem
and the answer is a living end deck that takes out living in four games two and
three boom that’s right that’s right thousand like you play game two they’re
expecting favours stuff but guess what no grave yourself at all four games two
and three but what do we bring in instead of living in and that would be
the new card crashing footfalls so when we fire off cascade we will hit crashing
footballs which makes two four four tramp lers and considering that we have
simians in the deck we can make these big boys as early as turn one and that
is most gangster but the real beauty here is that in game two do you think
our poets gonna have a great hand nah because what are they gonna do they’re
gonna mulligan until they hit a graveyard heat card and once they
finally find that card they’re gonna be like great it’s all I have to worry
about but all of a sudden our opponent finds themselves in a position where
they have very few cards in hand and they
two four fours to do it or at least to because we can fire off multiples of
these but to make things even better if our opponent had creature move in Game
one they’re probably gonna take it out by game two because what’s a dismembered
gonna do against an army of creatures because again they’re expecting living
in to bring back a ton of creatures and at that point it is too late so now if
we look back to the main deck we can start to see cars that work well game
one as well as in games two and three first of all we have blood braid or for
mana it has cascade which hopefully can hit one of these cards are more cascade
but if not it could also hit Blood Moon which is yet another threat that
opponent has to deal with and probably doesn’t expect worst case scenario with
blood greyed out is that we hit a simian or a fairy but blood rate is still
arguably better in our deck compared to any other modern deck because unlike
most blood grade decks there is zero percent chance to take a car that cost
one or two other than that we have the typical cyclers you find a living in
deck which we try and sideboard out after game one but the ones that remain
can still draws cards and the fairies are there for graveyard hate mostly in
case our opponent has creatures in their graveyard Game one and then the speed of
our mana we have simian as well as gemstone as for lands we have a lot of
fetches to hit our basics of prep for Blood Moon as well as a nurturing
peatland for card draw but now on a sideboard in addition to bring in
crashing footballs we have a couple of options here we have the new card force
of despair which we can cast for free by N’s long a black card from hand which
should be no problem cuz they have so many cyclers in our hand and when we
fire it we destroy all creatures that ends at battlefield that turn in case
our opponent has a lot of creatures in addition we also have to anger the gods
he owes three damage all creatures exile them and conveniently it won’t kill our
four fours and for even more greater heat we have ravenous trap and against
artifact hate we have chewer and lastly against blue we have ricochet
trap basically it counters the card for one that’s the deck time for the
gameplay be sure to subscribe if you want to see more decks like this and
without further ado here’s gameplay and I hope you enjoy opening him we got a
couple digging cards in this we’re gonna keep it oh it’s a graveyard deck where
it’s from the long blog gasps it’s a ho deck a ho Venge line deck this shall be
tricky Michael though and somehow try to survive DNA
oxen DNA it’s back blood gas and a grave crawler Michael I get that we might be
in trouble here and an altar so I say we fire the outburst even though it kind of
backfires on us yeah but once this thing came out so many things go in the
graveyard and we’ll be able to fired after oh it gets back blood gas backs
the Bloodghast and the big ho I don’t think we’ll win this one yeah cuz
they’re just gonna miss out this turn we’re going to go one in the game too
luckily we have some graveyard hate to bring in and also bore by pit exiles and
also Scheuer cuz let me evoke it it technically dies and gets rid of bridge
and what that lets go to Game two term on blood moon yeah let’s do it oh
they got layline luckily we dumped the living ends hmm like a plain ena or Fae
polluting they was living they had blood gas it could be an issue it up nothing
Oh buddy nice also dementia sure how do they have anything they probably just
thought with the ley line if they had automatic victory I only have a second
one I’m a cyclist hmm pretty good okay dokay will fight us on our phones turn
on a flash attack Davis living a bridge and a ho that’s just fine because we’ll
do this and then swing for a black and realizing the no match for us they can
see so game three it is opening hand we got a ravenous trap so yeah I’ll keep it
on the rest of the hand could be a little better but Yolo as a kid say
socks putting blood Gaston graveyard there’s only two cards let’s cycle okay
I find eater and blood gas comes back into hump day and also the Blood Moon
whale I suppose we pass back his sacking back
blood gas and another land I swing for for lay the grave crawler ok ok so
perhaps the best move here lady Monica reading getting back footfalls let’s see
what they can do back then and there’s playing around this so well they get two
cars engraver and then they’re like nah Oh big boy what you be doing I sense a
lightning axe so if you double walk here they can sack sack landing axe but we
have so many more to reload with I don’t think really mind if a lightning access
I think is worth the double block here sacks and that it’s fine you can hit the
graveyard now I say we wait so much for us to do here probably the save as
option of demonic dread getting more thick boy swinging 4/4 and back to our
opponent the great poet back from graveyard but nothing to get back in
blah ah the big ho ok ok and I regret not using this we have the chance that
all hope is not lost let’s do this swing in on blocks like that will fetch for
this island outburst getting two more thick boys healing ten and it could play
Blood Moon here with the Simeon but I’ll know if it’s worth it no green for
revenge mine the grave color though yes play it so I just keep stacking this to
that okay okay and there’s a concede we can’t be beaten we just can’t be beaten
even with me missing the ravenous trap even with the big oh wow our thick boys
are just too thick that was kinky but more kinkiness awaits on to the next one
opening hand looks very nice guess in this garden we also have this so we’re
gonna keep Oh and close-ish and they have to take that and then turn cycle
and okay back Dona an opponent plays dark
confidant so we can assume their John and then double cycle oh the fairy I’m
not liking this all that much but for now we just pass back on English ins
again I might as well take that out and force them to take the living in an
opponent knocks us down to fourteen in to turn cycle and cycle well we shall go
with blood braid into living in that’s what I wanted to see a fork goes through
they fail push that who cares nobody cares because look at this swing for
three plays take three now back to them Hogan’s command that’s not gonna cut it
I don’t think anything’s gonna cut it and there is a concede how nice now on a
side boarding don’t want in the game tour new the old switcheroo putting
input falls despair and anger the gods dumping this but that let’s go to Game
two opening hands not great but we can set up for turn two blood moons I’ll
keep it all a lie the void they got us guys oh and the discard and after a very
long pause they take the blood moons oh and back on our turn will suspend the
thick boys and pass back and another Inquisition aching anger the gods sure
and then back on our turn we have this but we need a creature to target Oh for
now just play this and pass back uh Otzi’s okay taking the blood brain and I
suppose a place simians I can play this next turn as a worst-case scenario
nevermind have one card in hand so Leyland’s just drain them they haven’t
done much the same except discard us and there’s a confidante but oh boy they
better have a maelstrom because we getting them thick boars and next you’ll
get two more thick boys if they have maelstrom pulse it can board white bus
to get full manator they play form form and end of the turn will cycle ok more
thick boys come down we also got a blood grades I’ll play it cascade oh that nice
getting to more thick boys but if they have Maelstrom we hello screwed blocks
like that a little concerning or maybe not cuz it life tells pretty low up
nevermind there is a concede holy crap that was so nice they fell for our trap
it’s like those who I lines out and it’s like they think they’re so clever then
but the fun times don’t end there cuz now on to the next one opening hand
three lands to cyclers and that and even if they discard us we have this as a
backup so we shall keep all who I control this could be tricky oh that’s
the perfect pole because by next turn we make fun time and pumps and our opponent
passes back they dead and we have this for a swamp oh dios mio is
too much with blood moon Oh on top of this stuck on one land oh my god oh crap
no they’re not live in Iowa now okay that’s fine that’s fine
you can still make this work we got to fire this now bow because I really don’t
want to see any counter stuff and they could have force of negation but we’ll
try it I want outbursts to get back one dude
they’ll need to hit up planes to deal with that but then they pass back in a
blood grade nice although if we hit a living in we’ll have to pass on it boy I
shoot no but then we can swing over seven nap caster okay I assume they’ll
trade new the chump well that makes a lot more sense there enough back to them
upon a business taking for those planes no doubt I play that pass back oh nice
so we shall cycle and we’ll set up for Dredd next turn swinging for three Oz
back they play and pass back to us and it turn this cycle this real quick I’ll
an outburst okay and we shall see how this goes swing in for three blocks from
our opponent it could violent outbursts at the end of their turn it’s probably
the safest option yeah second island and they pass back we’ll try and pull off
the outburst and force a negation that’s fine back on our turn another blood
grade will go at that violent outbursts I will try it she I try to stop the
priority from being passed I didn’t have time to fire that shoot okay well that’s
a bummer at least we can take this away from them yes so we’re cuz it shouldn’t
give us priority before that fired off maybe you didn’t hit the button and time
I’ll now anyway swinging for three and then back to them and our opponent
concedes but I’m still not happy about that he shouldn’t have gotten the snap
caster back on oh I don’t care if we won the fact that snap cast came back that’s
a loss to me but redemption shall be achieved in Game two
you don’t want in the game terror and dump this for this and what that let’s
go to game to the opening hand this actually seems pretty capable so we
shall keep a bomb starts with visions and we shall kick things off with the
falls and then wait for turns backs our opponent another vision and another
vision back on our turn will suspend another one and pass back I’m please
guys cool although as experts we can’t target that which is kind of a bummer
but we have that and now they’re tap that will fire it if they have forcing
negation know how they tap out and turn three and they do have force of negation
all right I proponent on its wings were sick so you go down the 12
what cycle yes cycle here and as much as I want to hold us in hand I think when
you put the fairy out for a blocker and we also do that in extra it somehow
survives I doubt it well and then back for opponent yep they both oh and with
that they’ll deal lethal it’ll be bolt six in there yeah they got so we’re
going to Game three going into Game three because you know they have guys
will bring in three of those and dump three of these and what that was good
Game three open hand is almost worth keeping but we don’t have any land so we
got a mole I got a bald man okay I land on top
years an external trying but even the force of negation upon a business and
they pass back to us let’s try it I’m boom and boom it made it back home
but now I kind of got nothing but hopefully they have nothing as well oh
just red oh so nice so nice come on blood right next turn Oh hmm I don’t
want to see that alright back for oh crap no island okay let’s do it
simian blood brave at that island though oh that’s nice it and they let it go
through interesting interesting but he’ll be so snap caster sure we shall
tray if they want to trade and then back to them at a mountain in violent
outburst waited their turn I suppose and even if they counter might hit a land
next turn for blood parade and there’s a concede there’s the concede holy crap
after getting to I was like I don’t think we’re gonna get Game three I mean
Game two they seem to not bring in any grave irritate and it said drop the guys
and that was tough we did not see that coming and in Game three the blood man
the blood one yes needless to say that made me very happy in Ponce but now on
to the next one opening hand this could work we’ll keep breathing fool just like
my mom’s vajayjay oh that’s Monday guys we can Blood Moon and back car owner and
they concede what a loser now the big question is do they realize we’re on
living eggs we discarded this and they should know that we’re on living in
don’t we’ll switch things up putting all this for all this and with that let’s go
to Game two opening hand his most derp so we’re gonna mole yeah okay and oh
good he’s got a gemstone something not Noble maybe their band spirits I mean Oh
cycle that draw that and well suspend this thing and pass back oh it’s in fact
wait is this our green white infect that would make me hoppy in ponds although we
did see a breeding pool oh wait I’ll play blood rate and Oprah something good
Mike dredge sure although next when they have one two three in fact now kill us
so we’ll have to go to Game three but it should be revert back to graveyard
that’s a tough call yeah I don’t see us being fast enough with this new strategy
here and they’ve seen it already I think we’re better off going back to living in
at the very least we needed to sacrifice two creatures you know what that let’s
go Game three oh this is Betty strong and I keep that fetch open I still think
we should go for the Blood Moon though but they have a forest listen RL in the
Dryad Arbor yes a lot
boom the heart of Jesus and now we have to wait things out and it looks like the
more bad than green and white in which case we must punish them cycle that into
that there’s a good chance that graveyard hate you got to be very
careful how we do this year lows keep a smack bomb keeps passing back to be
fired now give you 18 downs with those they didn’t have blockers I was trying
board by film but they probably have pump I think we should wait till we’re
sure they have lethal and but the longer we wait the more likely I had to draw
unanswered either this or the graveyard stuff and they still pass back or we’re
not drawing anything I’ve backed off discard spell appears I just go horny
nothing’s happening you have enough for that and not in the same turn now yeah I
guess we go for this is very risky I’ll burst it fire cycle that and then we’ll
try anger I’ll be probably a pump know these let it die what they realized I’m
no match for us they realized that they’re not green white in fact they’re
banned I just look look at this I am him for a lot and boom that was too easy too
easy if you guys are down for a fall at video than so am i because who knows
just how far the SEC can go but that is all for now thanks again to you guys who
were able to hit deck boxes before they sold out and because of that I’m able to
take off time from work ii dick for a living to make more videos more dec
boxes will be coming at some point but for now that is all and as always i hope
you have a great day

  1. Oops… I accidentally inserted the Grafdigger's Cage image when talking about graveyard hate against Living End. Just to clarify, Grafdigger's Cage does NOT stop Living End because technically they are returning from EXILE!

  2. 9:51 MTGO automatically skips the priority right after you cast a spell, because you usually don't want/need it. To hold priority, (like you wanted to do at 9:46) you hold the ctrl key while casting the first spell.

  3. God damn I love watching some modern cheese even if it’s nowhere near sustainable. The blowouts make it so worth it.

  4. I have a huge hatred for Simian Spirit Guide because of Living End, I had the scenario set up where Living End is supposed to lose, I played Rest in Peace on turn 2, you know how I lost, turn 1 they cycled, they were on the play so the did nothing turn 2 until I played Rest in Peace, Simian Spirit Guide into Outburst for the 1 creature in bin, in the case of me playing an Elves deck and losing my creature I played turn 1 off of that, what should've been a guaranteed win was turned completely around by free mana

  5. This man has single handedly convinced me to invest in modern. Touche sir. Touche. BTW, you single 😘

  6. This was dope, one of my favorites. Modern Horizons has given you some awesome stuff.
    That double leyline by jund was muy grande!

  7. Honestly doesn't matter what the deck consists of, as long as you can get Blood Moon out turn 2 people will lose.

  8. Can you make more of this? Was about to start a Living End deck but decided not to due to all the leyline of the voids

  9. I love these decks with transforming sideboards, but I wonder if it would work as well in paper. The perk of MTGO is that your opponent doesn't actually see you sideboard so they have no idea what you did.

  10. You are hands down the single best mtg youtuber out there. Anyone that thinks otherwise doesn't know shit.

  11. Man, I wish we were best friends. I would love to brew decks with you and text you memes and ask you to drive me to Home Depot sometimes. Brother what do you do for a living ?

  12. man, my sides, they are gone with this video. when i saw the strategy my first thought was "that's genius, but isn't the meta filled with-" bam game1 vs hogaak.

  13. You know how I know you’re funny?
    My wife watched it with me and with the word queef, left the room. Boom.

  14. "That's a loss to me!", I laughed so hard, Please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD keep the videos coming 😜

  15. Man I can’t stress enough that your videos are spectacular. I’ve been watching your channel for almost a half a year now and your videos never dropped in quality; in pretty much every video you’ve made so far, I’ve always been entertained by your sense of humor and the sheer genius deck-building decisions you make. I’m so glad that the magic community and the YouTube community has you around.

    Keep going and keep building decks! You’re amazing!

    Sincerely, GRIM

  16. “Living End can’t play removal because of cascade”
    Force of Vigor exists
    Magic Aids: Nahhhhh we jamming rhinos down game 2. Real og strats here

  17. This deck is so ‘next level’. I really enjoy how you take the Meta and sideboard strategies into your builds. It really makes your content a cut above the rest

  18. omg the lilliana sex-doll made me legit choke laughing, unexpected, I had to pause the video for a second, good meme sir.

  19. In the Infect game I think you were playing to complicated. At 5 mana cycling guys instead of just playing them is just wrong. They have no game to deal with a 4/4. You do not need to play living end or anything other than the guys you draw

  20. I don't play modern but I love watching your videos. Would a feather the redeemed boros deck work? It might be to slow. You'd have lots of removal thought

  21. Great content as always!! I don't understand why during the gameplay you always talk like an idiot tho… I love that "interessante" in game 1 and "Dios mio" game 4 xD
    Keep up the good work!!

  22. This made me happy in pants. I’ve had verdants and mires in my binder waiting for some heat like this

  23. What about pauper? After recent bans of Gush, Daze etc. metagame has a lot of room for new decks. And today there was annoucement that all cards printed as common will be pauper legal since release of m20 set. So we will have Goblin Grenade, Blue/Red Elemental Blast, Ashnod's Altar (412 new cards). I think Pauper needs Aids too

  24. I know somebody who does this with five drop cascades and he swaps for goblin charbelcher turn two. It runs ten lands

  25. Please do a follow up! I’m thinking about running this at the next SCG modern classic but I need to be sure!!!! Awesome deck, but cascading into spirit guides and faeries feels bad, and we didn’t see any of that in the video. I wanna know if it can be improved!

  26. Please, pretend this comment has something witty in it and not the repeated thing about Grafdigger's Cage

  27. Okay, so you've done mad things with this format. I wanna see if you can make a deck that makes force of savagery good

  28. Do you play other games? It's because your way of talking is really funny, you could make another channel where you play other games, great deck btw.
