I'm sad I can't get more Inquisitions at Sylvan Scrying prices, but these things happen. I already own my set so not the end of the world.

What I am genuinely angry about is the lack of Scapeshift in the whole BFZ block and MM2015. It makes so much sense.

Honestly MM2015 was fucking awful. Easily could have slotted in Inquisition of Kozilek at uncommon (literally Kozilek is in that shit set), Scapeshift at rare, Grove/Canopy at rare, Linvala/Thrun/Azusa at rare, Urza Tron at uncommon... would have been nice to have some candy like in MM2013.
>>
>>44664354
Need MM3 ASAP.

Too much shit was bought out since last year.
>>
>>44664724
We are probably getting MD2 before MM3. And it's probably going to stink.

What can I do as Merfolk against living end?

Do I just constantly side in a bunch of counters/dispell to stop cascade and leave mana up?

Also I got blown up against infect. Im not familiar with that deck at all, so I wasn't surprised. Seemed like I couldn't do much except race (which I had bad hands for after 0 land mulligan)

Hello Magic Community!
We are excited to present you the Modern Event Deck 2. It's called "Burn Stuff" and focuses on the Red Deck Win archtype to allow a cheap and fast entry into the format.
It features staples such as:
>Lightning Bolt
>Mogg Fanatic
>Keldon Marauders
>Magma Jet

This deck should drive the prices down a bit and allow for modern to become more accessible.
MSRP: 35.49$
>>
>>44664798
11/10 too realistic made me cry

>>44664798
Honesty it would sell if it featured two Goblin Guides like the Mirrodin Besieged event deck back then. That event deck was solid.

in case you don't know, don't counter the cascade spell, counter the living end he cascades into. cascade lets you cast the revealed spell. any kind of grave hate just shits on living end really bad. bring in relics from the side. chalice of the void on 0 also fucks living end.
>>
>>44664354
Speaking of Collected Company the 1st place winner at my LGS modern tournament last night was rocking elves. Pretty large tournament about 32 people. I got 8th place.
I was honestly surprised how good his deck was. Probably the best budget competitive deck out there. Of course pyroclasm fucks it and tokens so I may start rocking two of those sideboard.
>>
>>44665172
I did not know to counter living end instead of cascade. Thanks!
>>
>>44664771
It felt pretty bad to lose to it, because it felt like a really gimmicky deck that I wasn't prepared for. Next time I will be. Thanks again
>>
>>44665210
How can elves place 1st place? They literally lose as soon as you drop a boardwipe.
>>
>>44665246
I have no idea. We have a really competitive meta. I beat twin twice and one twin was foiled out with tarmogoyfs,and expedition fetches.
There's all sorts of tier 1 decks which is why I was surprised he wasn't blown out.
I guess no one had a board wipe sideboard which is probably what I'm going to put in and take out a small amount of affinity hate because honestly I hate the idea of losing to Elves.
>>
>>44665246
>Boardwipes in Modern
>>
>>44665292
Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods, Wrath of God, Damnation. There's plenty. I know spot removal is popular but there's good reason to slap some board wipe in your sideboard whether it's burn, affinity, elves or tokens.
>>
>>44665292
>>44665290
Does no one play pyroclasm, at least in their sideboard? I mean its so useful, recks elves and bw tokens, helps against affinity and to some degree even against burn
>>
>>44665314
I've only ever seen Pyroclasm in Tron, thats it.
Maybe its because Burn and Elves are almost nonexistent in my area.
>>
>>44665292
Yes? There is ton in form of sulfuric vortex and pyroclasm. Some people even play supreme verdict.
>>
>>44665316
>>44665316
Honestly I may just throw in anger, the one extra mana sucks but the three damage and exile is great.
>>
>>44665332
>>44665316
>>44665314
From what I've seen at my local meta:
>Pyroclasm
4-of in Tron, otherwise rarely seen
>Anger of the Gods
Rarely seen in sideboards
>Wrath of God
Non-existent outside of UW Tron
>Damnation
kek
>Sulfuric Vortex
thats not a boardwipe anon
>>
>>44665396
Also Supreme Verdict is nonexistant aside from UW Control and UW Tron
>>
>>44665332
Vortex isn't even modern legal

>>44665396
Twin runs 1-2 wipes sideboard usually, amulet bloom too, and several local lists ive seen have 1 or 2 pyroclasms if they run red
>>
>>44665396
>>Anger of the Gods
>Rarely seen in sideboards
It's like you haven't ever played against UR Twin. Let me guess: you think they don't run it (or shouldn't run it) because they are a pure combo deck that always manages to find T3 Exarch T4 Twin.
>>
>>44665480
Like half the meta here is UR Twin. I've never seen a boardwipe from them and I play Burn.

So can someone help with the math here? I have one fetch in my hand, and one serum visions. Im on the play. The rest is random cards I dont care about.
I run 26 lands. So I fetch, and in my deck are 24 left. What are the chances that I have a landdrop for my second round, considering I serum visions turn 1 and scry away everything that isnt land.
>>
>>44665463
Sulfuric vortex was slip of mind. Was thinking anger of the gods, just saw vortex in mind's eye since the mana cost.

The point is, there is quite a few wipes in modern. Supreme verdict often seen on Jeskai control type of builds, which is not to say it's too common to play against tho. How about whipflare? Oblivion stone? Damnation? Volcanic fallout? Engineered explosives?
>>
>>44665510
That seems like a lot of lands.
>>
>>44664410
Limited is trash except for cube which isn't really even limited.
>>
>>44665559
Maybe it were 24 lands, so 22 lands with the fetching.
>>
>>44665510
Kind of need to know how many lands you have in hand after fetch, because the % will be different.

Assuming fetch is the only land in hand:
53 card library. 25 lands in library.
fetch
52 card library. 24 lands in library.
Serum Visions (assuming didn't draw land)
50 unknown cards in library (2 non-lands on bottom). 24 lands in library
2nd Turn: 24/50 = 48% chance to draw a land

of course this will change depending on whether you have other lands in hand, whether you scry land or draw land with Serum, etc.
>>
>>44665510
assuming you kept 7, 53 cards in library. fetch and now there's 52. serum vision, draw and scry 2 away, effectively 49 left

24/49 = .489

just barely under 50% chance. how do you like coin flips?
>>
>>44665571
You don't have other lands in the hand. And yep, thats the point, I want to know the overall chance to get a landdrop, combining the draw, scrying and possible draw the second round

>>44665581
Yeah thats not the hard part, luckily im not that bad at math (yet). I have trouble getting the overall chance, of draw, scry 2 and second draw
>>
>>44665581
This is right.

I >>44665571 forgot about draw from Serum

I run it in my UR Twin. It's popular at my LGS
>>
>>44665597
well, after you fetch, there's 52 cards and 24 lands. assuming the lands are perfectly distributed through the deck there would be one land every 2.17 cards, but we know there's no such thing as perfect distribtion. digging 4 total with serum + next turn draw is very likely to see at least one land.
>>
>>44665597
I think what you really want to look at is the % that you Serum Visions and DON'T find a land drop to draw/scry:

(after fetch)
52 card library. 24 lands in library.
Serum Visions:
Draw: 53% chance you don't find land
51 card library: 24 lands in library
Scry 2:
1st card: 52% chance you don't find land
50 card library: 24 lands in library
2nd card: 52% chance you don't find land

They chances of not finding a land through the draw and scry is: 0.53 * 0.52 * 0.52 = 14.3%

So you have good odds.
>>
>>44664410
As an ex-limited main guy I have to say that draft has been ass the last few sets.

The last acceptable or good set to draft was KTKx3 and maybe KTK-KTK-Fate. I just cube these days.

The close to fifty percent argument only applies to the situation where you didn't find a land with your Serum Visions, i.e., the chance that your fourth card you'll see (you see three with the visions), is a land, given that you didn't see a land with the Visions. Obviously this will be close to 50% because the proportion of lands in your deck is close to 50% (and you only drew one in your opening hand). Calculating this tells you practically nothing.

The chance that you'll have drawn at least one extra land by your second turn is actually a little over 92%. Moreover, the chance that you'll ONLY see one land in all four cards you see is less than 30%.

The problem you're dealing with, is what we call in statistics a hypergeometric experiment, for future reference.
>>
>>44666004
>>44665510

tl;dr, you're looking at more than 90% chance you'll hit your second land drop anon.

Which makes perfect sense if you run 26(!) lands in your deck, jesus.

>how can i make this actually happen /tg/?
Use more colors.
>is the only way to use more colors?
Yes.

To make Hedron Alignment work you need to find 4 specific cards and move them to different zones as quickly as possible, while also doing control.
You'll also want quick redundant zone movement for when your opponent moves your Hedron Alignments out of your hand or graveyard.
To do things quickly you need to be in color, and different zone movements belong to different colors.

Also mono-colored control isn't very good.
Again, you need to do different types of thing quickly, so you need to be in color for them.

The only passable mono-colored Modern decks I can think of are Budget Burn and Mono-Green Stompy, both of which are worse than similar multicolored decks.
>>
>>44666335
Yep, that's big standard for you

>>44666335
I'm not sure if you are serious. Unless Urza Tron gets banned, Eldrazi is staying high Tier 3 // low Tier 2 forever. The deck is "work fucking hard to make some ok cards work".

>>44666473
Name everything you think slots in the Eldrazi deck in a way that makes the deck a top tier threat.

I mean a deck that can compete with:
>TRON
>UR TWIN
>AFFINITY
(these three decks are the decks to beat right now)
>Naya Burn
>Jund
>Abzan
>Grixis Twin
>Scapeshift
>Infect
>Merfolk
>Abzan Company
>Naya Company
>Grixis
(excluded joke decks like Bogles)

Bonus points if you also provide a reason to play Eldrazi over Tron in this current meta. Different playstyle/fun isn't an argument when playing tiers.

>>44666668
Sure. Also nice almost digits.

I'll just discuss the first three for mow, since eldrazi already has favorable matchups against most of the others you listed.

Affinity will probably still be the toughest. But with how efficient eldrazi aggro is going to become, and how almost all threats eldrazi produce are colorless, the affinity matchup is going to improve. I'd give the slight edge to Affinity still.

Tron:
Tron simply won't be able to keep up. Between eldrazi mimic, thought knot seer, and reality smasher, they're going to have a hard time ever getting up. New Kozilek is really dandy, and will help to control their game state, and post board, I give the edge to Eldrazi, easily.

UR Twin.

Eldrazi already had a favorable matchup here, as most of their removal was useless. It was essentially a race to combo out against very efficient aggro

>Tron simply won't be able to keep up.
I'm sorry but what. Do you speak from experience? From what I have seen, Tron was one of the most bullshit matchup. It's essentially a race to Ulamog and Tron has ways to get there faster and can provide tremendous advantage with Karn/Wurmcoil/Stone. Yes, Ugin is balls but that's it. To be fair, Wasteland Strangler isn't too hot in the matchup either. I do like Reality Smasher's body, but the effect is not relevant in the Tron matchup and it's fairly slow. You still need to get to "five" mana to play it and by that time, Tron might already shit out a wincon to overpower you. Eldrazi Mimic is cute but I'm not entirely convinced it's good enough by itself to justify playing it, and I'm not convinced it's the key to beating Tron.
>>
>>44666996
I'm actually thinking strangler doesn't make the cut post Oath.

A core of Mimic, TKS, and Reality Smasher seems like a fairly nice curve to outrace tron.

MMA was an attempt to get cards into circulation. They are in control of maintaining prices, but they don't profit off of expensive singles. They profit off of people buying packs. The power level of standard is low right now, but it's a pretty fun limited format

then it's a non-rotating format. it doesn't include many sets and doesn't include supplementary products. therefore it is not eternal.

They don't need to. All they need to do is make shit sets with a few power cards viable in multiple formats and it drives everyone to buy more packs. They're gonna let a few modern staples skyrocket some more before they make a new MM set and then people will eat that shit no matter what garbage they fluff it up with.

that's the fucking problem everyone is bitching about you daft cunt. goyf shouldn't be $150, LOTV shouldn't be $90, snapcaster shouldn't be $60, scalding tarn shouldn't be $85, etc.

These are all fairly recently printed cards that are only expensive because they are used in a format that was created to have a low price of entry. and since there isn't even any kind of fucking reserve list for any of this shit it is 100% within WOTCs power to increase the supply of these cards and lower the average price of modern decks, but they refuse to because reasons and hoarders will cry.

Just because Legacy is vastly more expensive doesn't mean that Modern isn't expensive.

>>44667317
I'm agreeing with you you "daft cunt."

Also welcome to how capitalism works you fucking retard. Supply and Demand. Theres a low supply of cards and a very high demand. All of those cards you listed are 4-ofs so every single individual person that runs each of those cards in their deck needs 4 of them. There aren't enough cards for every player to get them, so the price goes up.

>>44667358
Yes, Bloom is the least expensive top-tier modern deck right now.
>>
>>44667317
Wizards would rather pander to the crew that's been playing for a decade then tank the value of every single card to entice new people to play

>>44667387
if the crew wants the game to be rich kids club and tell all the new players to piss off and come back with a stack of benjamins then modern will go the way of legacy and fade into obscurity and die. why does every competitive format besides standard have to suffer the fate of no reprints ever choking it to death?
>>
>>44667378
>Just because Legacy is vastly more expensive doesn't mean that Modern isn't expensive.
It doesn't have legacy's entry fee. I don't see how you interpreted that as modern not being expensive. It's just less expensive than legacy and as years go by less and less people actively played during the pre-mirrodin/8th edition times which means they'd have to buy literally everything rather than just fill holes from an already existing collections.

I live near dallas, a pretty big fucking place. the last time my shop had a legacy night 12 fucking people showed up. we have 30-40 on modern night. legacy is a dusty forgotten format that most players have moved away from. it's almost as bad as vintage, which exists almost entirely on MTGO.
>>
>>44667387
>would rather pander to the crew that's been playing for a decade

Except that's not what they are doing. They are pandering to the new players. Not the new eternal players, the new standard players. They don't care a whole lot about what happens in the secondary market. Its standard that entices new people to play. Standard contains their most vociferous fans. The secondary market is on its own. About the only thing that might interest Wizards in that area is getting some of that sweet demand money. Hence the MM series. If anyone thinks those MM sets are genuinely meant to assuage demand is fooling themselves. It's to generate hype over the format, more demand, and more cash by extension.

There are always new players and they are easy to please. That's Wizards focus. The old players don't matter because they can take care of themselves. Or leave.

>>44667543
>that most players have moved away from
It's more that Legacy has already met its max capacity of players due to many of the formats staples only existing in very limited quantities. If one town gets ten new Legacy players then that means that ten Legacy players in some other part of the world have just sold their cards and most likely quit the format.

I've become pretty blind to the prices of many modern staples since I got into the format pretty early. I have damn near everything one needs to make all the tier one decks and a handful of tier two. I didn't even plan it that way. A lot of my collection is from avidly building casual decks modeled after legacy decks I admired but couldn't afford. So I ended up with a ton of shocks and fetches and a glut of cards that just happened to be really good in modern.

Do the new players buy them? I don't remember any of my friends buying them, when they started. Haven't seen anyone buy them either. Game shops also seem to dump them pretty cheap from time to time too, because nobody is buying them. Any new player would be better off with somewhat playable event deck imo. Also, why did they stop doing interesting duel decks. Instead we have "clash packs" equivalent of "complete and utter shit".

You are playing Grixis (Midrange), I assume. Ask yourself: would you rather play against Eldrazi or Tron? Hint: Tron is the game over matchup for Grixis.

Just because one deck has a good matchup against you doesn't mean the deck is a top tier threat. It's worse than Tron by a lot.

If WotC didn't want prices to go ridiculously high they could simply reprint stuff. And they could have done this along the way so prices would have stayed reasonable. People aren't angry at the concept of supply and demand, they are angry at WotC for denying to reprint staples to reduce the price.

Sweet, so what I would recommend is cutting down on the Tasigurs and Gurmags, running that many delve creatures is generally no that advisable as it puts too much strain on your graveyard and reduces the amount of cardss delver can flip off of (you only want about 12-14). I currently am running 2 Tasigur and 1 Gurmag which is working well for me but 2 of each could work, particularly when you only have 2 snapcasters.

Not having a playset of Snaps sucks eh? I'm in the same boat but have three, the aforementioned extra Gurmag could work but also try Grim Lavamancer, he's nowhere near as good but a recurring shock effect is pretty nice.

For non-creature spells, swap out Sleight of Hand with a 4th Serum, its overpriced but is the best cantrip left in the format. Cut vapor snag in favor of terminate (you want about 2-3, I'm currently running 3 due to a lot of creature decks in my meta).

Currently I'm trying 2 forked bolt 1 electrolyze to reduce the overall mana cost of spells, remember Delver decks want to be as efficient as possible. If you don't want to try that out I'd recommend swapping an Electrolyze for a second Kommand as it allows us to run less creatures and although it misses out on card-draw it is still a source of card advantage.

A typical counter-suite is 2 remand, 2 leak, 2 spell snare and a flex spot (either Izzet Charm or Spell Pierce). I was running this for the longest time but recently trying 1x remand, 2 leak, 2 snare and 1 spell pierce to accomodate a 19th land (nothing fancy, just a third island)

On the subject of land, I'm currently trying out Shivan Reef in place Sulfur Falls to help improve mulligans (we really don't want a land coming in tapped), so long as the life loss in 3 or less it's still in fetch-shock territory but still gives an out to choke. 4 steam vents is far too much, two at most, substitute for another fetch and a darkslick shores.

And then Wizards reprints things like MM 1 and 2 that drive the price of non-reprints up and players call them the devil anyways?

Magic is just on a big bubble right now. Something will pop it, whether it's breaking the reserve list, or the straw-that-breaks-the-camels-back SCG buyout or people just saying mother-fuck 2500 dollar decks and the price will crash.

Side boards are always hard but I'd recommend 2 dispel over negate and counterflux. Engineered explosives is great. Other than that I would just suggest looking up mtgtop8 decklists and don't be afraid to experiment, I'm currently trying out ashiok and jace AoT against midrange decks.

All the best friend, may all your Delvers flip blind.

You're failing to take into account how the number of people willing to pay shrinks as price goes up.

If five people are each willing to pay $10 for Card X, but only one person is willing to pay $50, it APPEARS the market is willing to pay $50, but it's an illusion. Only a small portion of the market ends up holding up the seller.

This benefits the seller short term, as they get the same result ($50) with less product sold, but this harms the majority of buyers (as it keeps products in the hands of only the select few willing to pay higher prices) and eventually drives customers away. Those who are willing to pay higher prices are smaller in number and renew at a much lower rate than customers who can't or won't, and if those few holding the seller up ever leave without the lower paying customers to fill in the support, the whole thing collapses.

This is exactly how economic bubbles burst, and Magic's burst simply seems like an inevitability.

I didn't realize my list was a bit out of date, I do in fact have three or four terminates in it.

As for Dispel, I might throw one in but I'd be hard pressed to take out a Negate.

Aside from that I'll def put your suggestions to work and see how it does! Thank you! :)

When they bump the good stuff up in rarity and print a whole lot of unusable jank in a set that is supposed to be about reprinting format staples, I think it's totally fair to call them out on their bullshit.

>>44670385
I'd make a salient point if I believed it would fall on ears capable of appreciating it.

>>44670401
The average money required to crack out of those cards was more than the value of those cards, so all prices did was rise anyway.

And no one wanted Emrakul, Eye of Ugin, Daybreak Coronet, or Bitterblossom. The sheer fact that Wizards claimed the set was designed to be drafted yet the only other 3 non-Coronet auras in it were Goblin War Paint, Splinter Twin, and FUCKING ARREST should tell you all you need to know.

Have you looked at any zoo lists? Those would be a big help to you I think.

Btw, a cute as all 1cmc is you really do want a mix or mana cost (high as I'd go in a deck like this is three) as you want to have outs to Chalice of the Void.

No worries mate, Negate is great as its more versatile than Dispel but it also gets hit by Spell Snare, it really comes down to what decks you come up against.

http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/deck.asp?deck_id=1253056

this deck or some variation of it would be the end result of you pushing what you have here as far as you can

making everything one cmc for no reason doesn't do anything, but this deck is still rather similar to what you seem to want to do

goyfs cost too much? you can play skinshifter, quirion dryad, vinelasher kudzu, or something

it will be worse, but it will also be 500 dollars cheaper

>>44670357
also a note on deckbuilding, strong decks pick one thing to be good at and then focus all of their card selection about making that one thing as good as possible (even if that one thing is being some kind of weird toolbox or whatever)

so since the main thing you're trying to do is be an aggressive deck, you have no place for fog, or more defensive spells like guttural response or ezuri's archers

those are slots that should be used to make sure you can kill faster and more consistently

So I have half of an affinity that I was building up before shit happened and I had no more money to buy magic cards. Now after few years I wanted to finish the deck but it seems like the cards I still need are just up in price. Is there any point?

The expensive cards I still need are Arcbound ravagers, Steel overseers, blinkmoths and sideboard which I'm not sure what would be the best to get. The jump to what they were when I stopped being able to afford shit is tremendous.
>>
>>44671545
ravagers should have been your first purchase
>>
>>44670357

Right now you have literally zero reason to run nacatl over kird ape.

You probably should be running 4x Atarka's Command and 1-2 Become Immense.

Spark elemental/Uktabi Drake are worse than most burn spells you could have in your deck (searing blaze, lava spike are the most common).

I really don't see the point of Ezuri's Archers.
>>
>>44671545

Either bite the bullet or you can wait until the Modern season hype is over when there's a lull and then grab them when it dies down a bit but that's a speculative risk as well.
>>
>>44671573
I only invested in the deck because Moxes were 6 bucks at the time and the rest of the set was small and then I stopped having the money to pay for it. I didn't expect them to jump up to 45. How did they explode last time I checked they were only 20 a pop.
>>
>>44671278
>In a format full of Jund and decks playing Thoughtseize galore
While the format features these decks, they're HORRIBLE in the current meta (the decks to beat are Affinity / Twin / Tron). I'd say this makes Wilt-Leaf Abzan a bad deck, because you don't take a meta-dependant deck in a meta without BGx on top.

>>44671659

Sorry I should have clarified that this wasn't a generalised statement about Modern.

My meta area is really quite literally Jund everywhere with the odd sprinkling of Twin about with some Junk(Abzan). There's absolutely no RG Tron and I would build it if it didn't cost me an arm and a leg to get the Groves.
