Go Green with Modern Bant Control – Deck Guide

Azorius Control as an archetype has never been better in Modern. Control players not only have access to some of the most powerful cards in the format, but they also have access to many specialized tools that give pilots the ability to build Azorius Control decks to target different metas. You have access to Kaheera, the Orphanguard or Yorion, Sky Nomad as companions, the ability to main deck lock pieces like Chalice of the Void or Rest in Peace, lots of different options for top-end card advantage, and perhaps most importantly, the easy ability to splash a color or two. Playing Jeskai, Esper or Bant Control all have with their own strengths and weaknesses. For the last few weeks, green has been my color of choice to splash in U/W/x control.

Before I show you the list, it’s important to keep in mind that this is a variation of Azorius Control rather than a completely new entity. I’m writing this guide with the presumption that you’re at least somewhat familiar with the existing Azorius Control variants and I want to focus on why I think it’s good to splash green in this archetype, rather than exploring the ideas present in other variants. Mana in these three-color decks is almost as good as mana in a two-color decks and when splashing for a card, you just have to make sure that the power level increase provided by the splash is worth the decreased consistency in the mana.

Here’s the deck list:
