Are you looking to play combo in Modern and interested in a one card combo deck that’s reliable, efficient, and highly competitive? Then have I got a deck for you!

Bring To Life Scape Shift Modern’s premiere one card combo deck, that kills your opponent with lands entering the battlefield! Wait…..what??? That’s right! Bring to Light Scapeshift is a combo control deck that looks to kill opponents by sacrificing a handfull of lands to search out a number of mountains and Valakuts via the linchpin card Scapeshift.

Your Ideal turn sequencing will start with a turn one suspended Search for Tomorrow. Followed by a Sakura Tribe Elder, which will ensure you have 5 Mana in any color combination your hand could demand on turn 3.

This means that you are only two more lands from going off and killing your opponent. Theoretically, if you are able to play a land from hand and hard cast a Search for Tomorrow your opponent could be dead on turn 4! Hooray for one card combos.

Obviously, this is not always going to be the case, as chances are you’ll be slowed down needing to use countermagic and removal to fizzle your opponent’s own plans.

This is what makes scapeshift great, it is a combo-control deck that has tools to buy itself time before going off. Let’s look at what makes up this deck.

Bring to light scapeshift is a competitive tier 1 deck for modern. It’s unqiue flavor of combo control consistently gets results, all the while providing a fun and complex gameplay experience.
