Amulet Titan Combo in MTG Modern is one of the best decks in the format, and is notoriously hard to play. Even with a good list or Deck Guide, many people struggle to play it, and have refused to pick it up out of worry that they won’t be able to find the convoluted technical lines the deck is known for. With this article, you will no longer have that excuse. If you need a deck or sideboard guide, I would point you to Reid’s piece from last month – here, I’m going to go over every step of every version of the combo I can think of, so you should be ready for pretty much any situation you come across.
Four Lands, Dryad, Titan, No Amulet
If you have a Dryad of the Ilysian Grove grove in play, at least four lands and cast a Primeval Titan, then you can likely get the win, Amulet of Vigor or not. Getting two copies of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle deals 12 damage, and makes every subsequent land drop at least six damage. If you already have a Valakut in play, that’s an extra six damage on the initial to Valakuts and an extra three per subsequent land drops. Vesuva cannot copy lands that enter play alongside it, so don’t fetch it as one of your Valakuts if you do not have a Valakut already in play.
Two Amulets, One Titan, No Removal, 20 Damage
If you have just one copy of Primeval Titan and two Amulets and don’t suspect removal, you can get Slayers’ Stronghold and Boros Garrison and activate Stronghold targeting the Titan twice (make sure to resolve Garrison untap before you resolve Stronghold untaps so that you have the mana to activate it twice). Return Stronghold (or some other land you control that isn’t Garrison) to your hand. Attack with Titan, getting Vesuva and Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion. Vesuva copies Garrison. Use the mana off it, untapping twice to activate Sunhome on Titan, giving you a 10/6 double striker.
With an Amulet, Titan and Dryad
You’ll generally start this line by getting Stronghold plus Garrison to attack with Titan. If you have an extra mana that’s either red or white, however, you can get Valakut to go with the Stronghold rather than Garrison to leave you with an extra land in play. Attacks with Titan generally end up getting Valakuts for lethal. Remember that Dryad makes your Valakuts (and other lands) tap for any color.
