Multicolored Decklists for Modern
Yorion GoodstuffYorion, Sky Nomad is a great friend of goodstuff decks, especially since its companion restriction isn't that troublesome on decks with individually strong cards. Its ETB effect is also stronger with the popularity of elementals, which generate even more value after the Serpent bird enters the battlefield At the base of the deck, we have cards with great individual strength in a deck that seeks to sequence a series of impactful plays. Since most of these cards take effect upon entering the battlefield, "blink" effects like Ephemerate gain synergistic power in this strategy.
Five-Color Bring to LightBring to Light brings an absurd consistency to five-color decks, making it possible to run "silvers bullets" efficiently, in addition to giving even more consistency to the deck's key cards. To aid in color correction, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is one of the best cards recently released, as in addition to making your lands generate mana of any color, it allows for more lands to be played per turn. Overall, it greatly aids the effects of Omnath, Locus of Creation, not to mention the interaction the dryad has with Scapeshift, which turns the deck into a combo in just one play.
Five-Color Ferrous RokiricGeneral Ferrous Rokiric is one of the best payoffs for multicolored decks, with a build like the one on the list, Rokiric becomes a sort of "Super Young Pyromancer'', which albeit costing one more mana, resists most of the popular format removals, as well as creating far more powerful tokens.
