Reprints of staples literally never edition
New thread here
Old thread there >>44654962
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.
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:
This deck should drive the prices down a bit and allow for modern to become more accessible.
>>new super awesome finisher Fall of the Titans :^)
>"It combos with Stuffy Doll to kill your opponent suddenly!"
>"Tell your friends! See what new damage combos you can create!"
>Lead Designer: Mark Nosewater
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.
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.
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.
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.
From what I've seen at my local meta:
4-of in Tron, otherwise rarely seen
>Anger of the Gods
Rarely seen in sideboards
>Wrath of God
Non-existent outside of UW Tron
thats not a boardwipe anon
>>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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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?
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
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
>tries to min/max his plays
>does so to redicilious arbitrary situations
>prolly shouldve just mulliganed his hand
Stop trying to be Frank Karsten?
Obvious Tron staple
I guess that Affinity would use this?
once again, kek
Actually see this in Twin decks
>60 card deck
>draw 7 assuming no mulligan and one land hand
>assume turn 1 (on play or draw will change this)
>on play: 53 draw:52
>fetch: (p:52/d:51) 24 lands left
>serum: draw (51/50) scry 2 (assuming both arent lands): (49/48)
>turn 2: 24/49 (just under 50% on play) and 24/48 (50%) on draw
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.
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:
52 card library. 24 lands in library.
Draw: 53% chance you don't find land
51 card library: 24 lands in library
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.
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.
What's your favorite guild /tg/? The one you feel most in line with
i bet she's shy and insecure and that's why she hides under those robes while claiming it's because it's mysterious. I just want to bully her relentlessly while she fights back with mill that does nothing because mill sucks until she cries.
would tease azorius too.
So shouldn't it be spoilered if it's an online deck to hid the fact you're an online pleb?
On paper is the only way to play competitive magic. The fact that people pay the same amount for fake, digital cards is laughably absurd.
because when its a meme deck, people assume they just run it on MWS/Cockatrice
Pyrite Spellbomb/Academy Ruins loop or Ghirapur Aether Grid. Alternate wincon is milling.
The thing about the draws the deck gets is that your average turns are like 5 seconds once the lock the on. Its the other player that takes fucking forever to squirm and pass the turn

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.
bullying is wrong though
I'd give dimir faeries and counterbully you with discard.
>how can i make this actually happen /tg/?
Use more colors.
>is the only way to use more colors?
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.
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:
(these three decks are the decks to beat right now)
(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.
Good thing here in europe the prices need a little more time to adjust to the american market, so I can safely get them even after one or two days after the announcement.
So I'm building twin as my final modern deck but until I get the snaps and cliques I'm going to sleeve up UR storm as it's like a quarter of the price and I already have tarns the most expensive piece. God I wish Seething Song was unbanned.
Inquisition of Kozi is now a $28 card, isn't that great?
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 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.
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
My favorite part if the Karplusan Forest price increase for every editions.
Grove has become so expensive people are looking for the cheap alternative. And so many people are looking for the cheap alternative it makes the price go up.

The point about mono-colored mana bases came up because >>44657824 >>44658744 >>44659229 doesn't want to shell out for a non-budget manabase.
4 Glimmervoids and 4 Inkmoth Nexi are right out.
>Merfolk is T1
Whoops. Merfolk slipped my mind, point conceded.
The thing is, this just straight up sucks. If I want to brew, I still want to make something competitive. And if I want to make something competitive, even if its a brew, I still need staples.
>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.

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
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.
I think they're just scared shitless of making a high powered standard environment again. They could always release supplemental decks with staples in them, but gotta keep the secondary market nice and lucrative I guess.
Just because Legacy is vastly more expensive doesn't mean that Modern isn't expensive.
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.
Yes, Bloom is the least expensive top-tier modern deck right now.
apparently you're not agreeing with me you daft cunt, I'm saying that supply & demand of modern staples is firmly within WOTCs grasp rather than something they have no control over.
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?
>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.
Most of the people who I played with back in Mirrodin still play today. The older formats are for people who already have the cards, it trickles down fromthe standard cards people have that eventually make decks
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.
>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.
The legacy community is smaller, but it certainly gets represented. The vintage community is great. Small, but they're all really nice. I'll take that over the abrasive modern crowd.
>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.
Doesn't make sense as long as cards in it are unplayable. Modern event decks would be a way to go, but for whatever the fucking reason apparently intro packs are more profitable for wizards. (Why the fuck is there intro packs, does new players really buy them or what?)
You're not playing this format because it's cheap.
There's a card in the new set, someone posted it in a draft thread yesterday but I forgot to save it
It's I guess a construct creature
2 colorless mana its a 0/1 and you tap him for 1 colorless mana
Does anyone here have the image of him? He's a cute tiny little guy, the image is this little pointy creature the size of a soldiers foot
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.
Intro packs are made for new players getting into the game. They make a good job of it. They are not meant for experienced players to get their hands on Bobs and Snaps.
This post should not have to be made.
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 will never be Selesnya-chans sex slave
>she will never dominate you , degrade you, treat you cruelly just to get herself off and then lovingly hold you as she tells you how good you did
Is there any reason to go on?
I think this card is good. Am I crazy/misreading it? It's like less than $1 right now around here.
And why would that do anything? Ulamog is indestructible, Kozilek is too smart for this shit, and a planeswalker is nothing special to a being that literally walks from plane to plane.
I don't know, the more I look at it the more I realize just how much it fucks with my gameplan while just doing what it does. Creatures will kill effects on them or token generation gets around grixis's one for one nature really well, not to mention my deck is pretty reliant on graveyard. Hell, I've even cut the number of Gurmags to accomodate, trying out a one of Vendilion Clique in its place.
It's not fireball though. It's a Twin Bolt for 1 more generic mana without Surge, but it's double instant Fireball with it.
The only time I ever bought an Intro Pack was the ROE one with Drana and only because I really wanted my foil waifu, it had 2x Lightning Bolt and the store was out of ROE boosters exept for the ones inside the IPs.
people play modern so they can have decks that they can use forever but actually have people to play against.
I wish Legacy was more popular, hell, a local league started up not too long ago but everybody just lost interest because the player-pool was so small, despite it being proxy friendly, people just didn't care and were happy to stick with modern. Feels bad man.
How do I break this card? It's so freaking cool.
I'm thinking gifts ungiven 3-6.
Took that jank-ass UW Emeria list to my FNM last night at went 4-1.
Surprisingly I had a blast. But there's like no resources available for it online, outside of a very old forum post on MTGSalvation with no sideboarding tips. Anybody else run the deck? Thoughts?
I ran pretty close to this, little differences in the sideboard. Also had a Runed Halo main. It was an all star.

If you're still here mate post your list, I'm a big fan of Grixis Delver. I'm sure if we put our heads together we can make it semi-viable again.
Buying an intro pack how I started to get into the game. Magic was just supposed to tie me over while I painted my miniatures but they're still sitting in a box somewhere so I guess they do their job well enough (though I don't understand why they need to release 5 every fucking set instead of creating more product for all levels)
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.
You should run Ghost Quarter instead of Tectonic Edge. It's faster and if you have the ability to recur it you can burn through all the basics some decks run and start strip mining them. Also, why no Restoration Angel? It seems like without Vial it would be better than Flickerwisp.
>somehow these neowalkers do something that 3 premending planeswalkers couldnt
I do have Ghost Quarters, actually. That's not my exact list but its the one I based mine off of.
Sun Titan recurs flickerwisp. Wisp rolls D Spheres over and has interaction with opponents stuff. I think I'll keep wisp over resto.

Well, Ugin and the gang probably *could*, but Ugin was certain that it was a terrible idea because, he reasoned, they probably served a very important purpose in maintaining some sort of balance in the multiverse.
That's fair, I'm actually playing Grixis Delver which I know is substantially worse but without creeping tarpits and flip jace trying to swap over just doesn't seem like the right thing to do.
Everyone I've spoken to today about Magic has lamented about the price of cards. No one is looking to get into this game right now. That's the key difference between then and now.
People complaining about price don't understand how markets work. If people weren't willing to pay 90$ for Lilly Goat Gruffs, people wouldn't charge 90$.
Yeah, the buyout on IOK was shitty, but if people just don't buy them at 30$ they will fall. I mean, they already fell to 20 just as fast as they skyrocketed.
It's not like these items are necessary to life. MTG is a luxury item meaning you can stop buying at any time.
Do you not understand how markets work?
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.
Nigger, stop trying to justify your bullshit with "economics". Fist of Suns hasn't corrected after years because this is not the real world market where corrections happen, authorities punish malicious speculation and supply corrects to meet demand.
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.
modern border threw me off
still an idea for the lols though
>Nobody wants Hierarch, Fulminator, Emrakul, Karn, Eye of Ugin, Remand, Cryptic Command, Gofy, Clique, Mox Opal, Spellskite, Splinter Twin, Blinkmoth, Daybreak Coronet, and Bitter Blossom
I want this meme to die a terrible death
>fist of suns hasn't corrected
>TCG mid is $3.50
>a rare printed over a decade ago with no other prints
that sounds just about fucking right to me. what's the fucking problem here?
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.
I'd make a salient point if I believed it would fall on ears capable of appreciating it.
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.
lolling at this fucking neckbeard drama
just wanted to see if I could conceptualize a deck topping at 1 cmc
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
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

Nice community you guys got here
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.
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.
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.
>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.
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.
What was the reason though, was it for their articles?
I mean if mtgtop8 is doing something wrong by keeping track of event results then a fuckton of other websites are also in trouble.
So the budget land option is not too bad for the decktype then? There's only one other burn player that i'm aware of around here.
This is actually not for FNM but upcoming GP Trials over the next several weeks.
