Goryo's Vengeance.jpg
165 KB, 480x680
Since i'm sure nourishing shoal will get hit with a ban next time, I made my own take on a modern goryo's vengeance deck. Works kind of like sneak and show. You loose a little bit of speed on your kill, but it's more interactive and less susceptible to hate. Opinions?

>>44860009
Can we get some Twin players in here? I haven't fed on enough asspain yet. Reddit and mtgsalv are great sources right now though.

>>44860009
I could see Goryo sticking around with how much graveyard hate there is in Modern. Now that Twin is dead there are suddenly slots in sideboards to focus on other decks.
>>
>>44860009
The eldrazi decks run a ton of graveyard hate main board just to exile shit. So that's a new issue to deal with.
>>
>>44860296
I was planning to be a twin player, it was going to be my first deck. I ordered most of the cards on MCM, spent 400$. 2 days after I received the cards, they announced the bans. I'm still crying.
>>
>>44860397
It's has a lot of U/R good stuff. And the lands are a solid investment. You can switch to something else pretty easily.
>>
>>44860373
Not a big deal. You can interact with their hand, put a pithing needle down, edict their creatures and through the breach things. I've only played against one version with heartless summoning, but I absolutley crushed it.
>>
>>44860009
So with Twin and Bloom banned what decks have suddenly become viable?
>>
>>44860448
Yea, I'm planning on converting it to Grixis Delver since that looks very fun to play and there's some overlap.

Also, are faeries playable at fnm level? I have 3 vendillion cliques from MM drafts and kinda wanted to have a use for them.
>>
>>44860009
How do I stop Tron? Is Ghost Quarter the only way? Crumble to Dust is too late most of the time.
>>
Whats the best version of eldrazi?

>>44860586
Play scapeshift and counter their big threats. (Less effective because of new ulamog). Play infect or ad nasueam and beat them before they assemble tron (other combo decks were either banned or are bad in the meta.) Play affinity or burn and win before they can get tron online. Blood moon is an effective answer in burn because burn is fast enough to stop them before they can hard cast wurmcoil.
>>
>>44860009
any particular reason that we need 2 Modern threads atm?
>>
Ad Nauseam is going to become solid tier 2 at the very least in this new meta, maybe even tier 1. Great tron matchup and a good eldrazi matchup especially post board. Strong against burn and even against affinity and scapeshift, leaving the only bad matchup being infect.
>>
>>44860747
Other one doesn't have a title, couldn't find it before I made this one.
>>
>>44860586
Stopping Tron involves playing Infect, burn, or the instant-speed-win combo deck Ad Nauseam. Burn and Nauseam cost roughly the same; Infect might run another $100 more.
>>
>>44860769
Fair enough, I missed that part.
Might as well post in this thread thead too; I signed up for scg regionals, and plan to play burn.
a) what should my sideboard look like for the post twin meta (I'm playing Naya, but no cats)
b) I've never been to anything higher than FNM, can anyone with experience tell me what I should bring to the tourney or do beforehand to prepare myself?
>>
>>44860788

>Burn and Nauseam cost roughly the same

Bro the creatures in Burn cost more than Ad Naus does. Literally the only cards in Naus that are over $20 are the 4 Pacts.
>>
Does anybody have any ideas on a win con for Jeskai control that isn't Burn, Colonnade, or Keranos? How's Ojutai for modern?

How are the non matte kmc and dragon shields as far as shuffling? My current sleves are sticking together and it is a pain to shuffle.

>>
>>44860468
>heartless
Try bw eldrazi,running lingering souls. Bw is probably the best version
>>
>>44860839
Molten Rain for Tron, Ancient Grudge/Destructive Revelry for Affinity, Kor Firewalker for the mirror. Deflecting Palm can also be nice against Affinity and other "all-in" decks like Bogles and Infect. Add Skullcrack to prevent lifegain fucking you. Lists you see online will have Rending Volley in the side; ignore them. That's an anti-Twin card.

Bring pen & paper and keep track of both your and your opponent's life. If there's a life total discrepancy, judges are more inclined to believe the guy with the pad rather than the dude who brought spindowns.
>>
>>44860982
Kiki-Angel or Kiki-Exarch or Kiki-Mite
>>
When will the hype for the eldrazi deck die down?
>>
Do the bans make combo better or worse? I have Naya Burn and am building U-Turns and I'm having a hell of a time figuring out which one is better positioned after this rather surprising ban.
>>
>>44861252
Molten rain seems bad, especially against something with as much redundancy as tron. I'm packing paths for their early wurmcoils, as well as for firewalkers against any deck that might bring them in. Current board is as follows
2 path
2 palm
2 volley
3 firewalker
4 revelry
2 relic of progenitus
probably going to ditch volleys and relics. I'm heavily considering skullcracks, but the other slots are a tossup between volcanic fallout, smash to smithereens, or searing bloods. I'm leaning towards fallout because it's good against elves and I've heard it also works against affinty.
>>
Twin player here. I'm sticking with the deck and tweaking it, but I have a question. Should I just cut Exarch entirely now since the entire combo is boltable and he doesn't provide a fastclock like Pestermite and Bounding Krasis do?
>>
>>44861624
just play blue moon

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/50-budget-no-lords-goblins

Could this be a good babby's first modern? I already have the piledrivers from standard, and I have two guides.
>>
I know Eldrazi Processors has been dubbed a meme deck, but I am honestly having a blast with it. What version do you guys think has the most potential? I was running mono-black, but B/G just seems to be better with Abrupt Decay and Ancient Stirrings. I might try a Scooze or two in the main. i have heard good things about B/R, but I refuse to splash red for something as uninteresting as Bolts when Abrupt Decay hits more.
>>
>>44862239
That's not even a good Goblin deck. Try something with an RG manabase for command and CoCo. Even then, it's a mediocre deck that isn't sure whether it wants to be elves or burn, and it's worse at being either because of it.
In short, no, don't play hyper budget Modern, play a real deck, even if it's something mediocre like mono green stompy.

I want to go to modern FNM for under $150, and as far as I can tell, mono G stompy will just have been a wasted $100 when I get a better job.
>>
>>44861958

Am mad cause I wanted to get another deck to play with(have junk and infect). I was buying part of the deck each month and already bought the scalding tarns (bought 2 each month). Just when I bought the snapcasters and twin, the fucking ban them. I still needed the low cost cards loke pertermite, spell pierce, remands, but now its pointless to buy the rest.
>>
>>44862419
so you'd rather only waste $50 and not even have a chance?
>>
>>44862368
Some advantage when used with shoal.
>>
>>44862419
Ad nauseam is very potent in the post twin meta.
>>
Babby's first deck here. Already bought it, it just got here today.
Is this trash? I tried to make it not trash, but I know nothing about magic.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/18-01-16-white-tokens/
>>
>>44862419
If you have vendilion clique, you cam buy the mono blue faerie-ninja deck. The new common faerie from origins made a lil better since some people waste their removal too avood drawing a card.
>>
>>44862442
Not with Infect getting more popular to counter Tron
>>
>>44862688
But it has a good matchup against nearly every other deck in the post twin meta and because of this, you can dedicate more sideboard slots to deal with infect. Path of exiles along with fog effects will probably make infect more bearable.
>>
>>44862123
There's one guy in the EDH threads that insists Mindslicer is, like, the GOAT. Obviously, he went to buy his usual fifty copies, everybody else think's it's a buyout, suddenly dollar rares are spicy fellows
>>
>>44862368
the card you splice on stays in your hand. it's basically "reveal this card from your hand, pay the splice cost: add this card's text to the arcane spell you're casting"
>>
>>44862436
Only $20 of that is unusable in an RG version of no Lords goblins
>>
>>44862442
is ad nauseam really that cheap?
>>
>>44861862
8 Rack win condition
>>
>>44863175
MTGtop8 puts it between $400 and $500, but that's not bad for a deck that's potentially tier 1 in a post twin metagame desu.
>>
Running 4 ghost quarters main feels good now even if I play a subpar deck.
>>
>>44861001
The best sleeves I've had so far are the Hyper Matte KMC sleeves, they're great and don't get gross like the Dragonshield do.
>>
Hey esper control fags, do you guys run syncopate in your decks or just logic knot as the "pay x or get countered" spell
>>
So should I run Bounding Krasis and more Pestermites in place of Exarch now? Serious replies only please. I want to continue to make this deck work even if it suffers a bit from the banning.
>>
>>44860527
There is only our colorless overlords, tron and affinity. Resistance is futile

oh, and burn I suppose
>>
>>44860009
Is Thought-Knot going to see modern play? Tron might take it as sideboard tech? It's similar to Vendillion Clique and they can run it without changing mana base at all
>>
>mfw there were retards who wouldn't buy counterfeits because muh Kikes of the Coast "deserve" the money to preserve the sanctity of the secondary market
You gentiles sure know to make a merchant happy :^)

Of course, there's no reason you have to stop playing Modern just because all your blue cards are now worthless! Trade in your Tarns for brand new Eye of Ugins, only $40 each at Star of David City Games (tm), your gateway to the magical world of Magic: the Goyening

Is Splinter Twin playable with kiki-jiki?
>>

My friend is switching to American Kiki.
>>
>>44864245
I'm bad at magic: the post
>>44864259
Yes. Don't listen to the sky is falling faggots. The deck may be injured but it's not that much of a hit to it since the deck won through other means then the combo more often then not.
>>
>>44864259
It's more vulnerable since the combo is now vulnerable to Kiki getting bolted in response but it's playable.
>>
Cheeri0s in modern? Really not sure why not more people run it, fitting some protection for Puresteel Paladin should not be impossible. Not having Twin should make this deck more safe. Not sure if it can handle faster decks like Infect.

Is it worth running Relic in board anymore since no decks are really running snapcasters right now? It feels like it's just taking up space in my board right now
>>
>>44864686
I posted earlier in the thread (too lazy to link my post) but I'm definitely taking them out of my burn sideboard. I guess yhou can still shrink goyfs and hose random graveyard strategies, but it's really not worth it without something as powerful as snappy.
>>
>>44864821
That's my thinking, I'd rather put in Stony Silence to stop one of my harder matchups than run some gravehate when no decks in the format truly make use of it anymore
>>
>>44864853
is it possible to hose modular with it? I know Rest in Peace fucks ravagers up
>>
>>44864917
It doesn't stop modular but it stops the ravager from being able to sacrifice artifacts. I ran it in my deck, infect, for a while but it was bad because I couldn't use my Spellskite's abilities, but since twin is gone I don't need to run 2 anymore and I don't need them as much
>>
>>44864639
Same guy that didn't buy Twins or Amulets because he knew about the bans weeks in advance.
>>
>>44864917
>I know Rest in Peace fucks ravagers up
No you don't because it doesn't. Sacrificed doesn't mean goes to the graveyard, it just means sacrificed.
>>
>>44865156
I think he's talking about the modular thing mang.
>>
>>44865200
Affinity runs Rest in Peace in the board so I don't think it really cares.
>>
>>44865156
>>44865200
This. With Modular useless it means Ravagers are basically two mana 1/1s.

Not that you want to bring Rest in Peace in over Stony Silence. Just that it works.

Where does Living End stand post twin bloom ban? About the same or perhaps better? I can't see it somehow being worse now that Twin left.

I'm building Infect
i'm doing good ?
>>
>>44865348
Less remands which is good.

More infect which is bad.
>>
>>44865348
Probably in a worse overall position. Burn is already a disastrous matchup for you, Affinity isn't as bad but still lightning fast, though they can board into whatever yard hate they want. Tron is an awful matchup if they can land an Ugin. You can't beat that.
>>
>>44865380
Less Remands sounds wonderful

>>44865411
Yeah, that does sound bad. The meta in my Area was mostly Twin, so hopefully they don't all make a sudden investment into burn or tron

I was stupid and didn't do any research.
>>
>>44864178
Might be playable in the eldrazi deck, especially in mono black. Gives them both more hand disruption and another eldrazi.

>>44862519
its pretty bad, if you wanna play this kind of deck I suggest you look into soul sisters and bw tokens.

>>44865689

>>
>>44865348
it's worse off at the moment because of the eldrazi deck mainboarding GY h8.

tron can be rough if you don't have your fulminators or beast withins to keep them off tron, if they land ugin you're SOL, post sideboard they bring in relics and your life gets harder. I've won vs tron but it takes a bit of luck.

infect fucks your shit up most of the time. but if they don't manage to kill you before you're ready to cascade you fuck them up pretty bad. I lose this match up unless I can hold my hand and drop a cascade after they're all in and build my GY from there.

affinity also feels 50/50. G1 they put you on a fast clock and ravagers just sac everything in response to living end, fucks your shit up bad. G2 bring in the ingot chewers and things get more manageable.

it's probably a good idea to leave living end on the bench until we see if this eldrazi deck is here to stay. that match up is almost unwinnable unless they have a terrible draw and you have a great one.
>>
>>44864259
No.
Kiki-Jiki is infinitely worse if you try to just run the Tempo/Control build.
Kiki's is more vulnerable to removal, requires RRR on turn 5 if you wanna Kiki, but UUU if you wanna Cryptic.

5 mana is also like, twice as much as 4 mana. To get 5 lands in play by turn 5 you need to run several more lands than the standard list (anyone who doesn't realize this should redo grade school math).

Morons like >>44864312
who go "durr you can just play Kiki doiiiiiiiiiii it's just 1 more mana" don't know anything about how game mechanics function.

The point of the combo was to avoid getting blown out by unfair decks on turn 3, since you could always represent an instant win the turn after if they tapped out.

Now, they can just go for the win and know you can't do shit about it.

Okay my meta is now entirely Tron, Affinity, Infect and Zooicide and two mono blue turns.
Do you reckon something like RW control packing land removal, blood moon, pyroclasms, lightning helix, stony silence MB and bolt could go somewhere?
Board wipes and spot removal keep us comfy, blood moon and land removal keeps the decks that will fuck us from doing so for a turn or two. I almost want to run U for only spell snare and I need a real win condition.

That's why I like it though. Counterspells aren't modern legal either.
Wasteland is cool in legacy but it is quite a meta changer. Not that that's bad but people would simply put a wasteland in every deck, tron/infect/affinity/scapeshift would get hurt, and nothing else would change other than pricier decks.
I like that gq is strictly hate and has a decent cost, the kind of thing you sideboard.
Idk imo tron is bullshit and needs a nerf, but I think gq fills the spot wasteland left us quite nicely

GQ is such a tempo loss tho. Perhaps they wanted to relegate such effects to the sideboard but the card hardly feels like it hinders them that much.

>>44867924
I mean the UU kind. Deprive is the UU counter.
Or how no force of will. Shoal instead.

Wasteland is an aggro card, it doesn't go in every deck. Just decks where you want to trade your land drop for theirs

while we're on the subject, if arcane denial was modern legal would any decks use it? I mean, it's an unconditional 1U counterspell...
>>
>>44867912
>Counterspells aren't modern legal either
Even if counterspell was modern legal it would still see almost no play.

Lack of the actual counterspell isn't the factor keeping control decks from being a thing
>>
>>44868028
buy in now before its too late
>>
>>44867884
By playing the deck reactive instead of pro-active. Beast Within and Fulminator Mage are a tempo match made in heaven - Violent Outburst is just gravy.

Ps. Have you ever Ricochet-trapped Groumdswell unto a Dryad Arbor? It's glorious. Sadly undoable if Infect becomes more GB though.
>>
>>44868047
Absolutely

Side note, I'm >>44867604 I kinda wanna try this to see how good silumgar's scorn in modern can be, alongside spell snare and spell pierce. Anyone have advice?

>>44868047

I play the deck reactively, but sometimes the moments where you needed to be reactive are before T3, and unless you have an SSG in hand you don't quite get that chance.

I've never ricochet trapped a groundswell, but I did ricochet trap splinter twin onto one of my deadshot minotaurs before. poor guy didn't think you were allowed to redirect enchantment spells, made a big fuss with the judge.

Leak is an easier to cast counterspell in every matchup that isn't tron.

where is the standard general?

modern is ass
>>
>>44868057
Are you sure? If the meta becomes really aggressive, eldrazi could easily preform much worse.
>>
So is standard.

here's how to improve your TCG experience:

Cut out the artwork of magic cards.

hot glue art from magic onto force of will cards.

play a real game with sane rules and less speculator baggage.
>>
>>44868315
Standard and modern are both ass
>>
>>44868296
True but you usually want 2 blue sources of mana anyways if you're doing counters. Grixis prolly wouldn't take it but UR or UW would love it
Mana leak would still be viable but deprive would be kill and it's already shown to be strong. It covers the aggro and the dragged out games all the same, manaleak is bad during the lategame
>>
>>44868179
Are you this guy?
>>
>>44868358
Mana leak is better in an aggro deck with a lower land count, counterspell is definitely better in control
>>
>>44868276
Delver both isn't exactly anywhere close to a format defining deck and rarely runs deprive as is.

Remand is strictly better in that style of deck. The only reason they played 1-2 Deprive in the board was against Twin
>>
In the format of turn 4 clocks, why isn't delay used more often?
>>
>>44868409
UR pyromancer wouldnt mind it, it needs lots of blue anyways for shit like cryptic and runs pretty much all blue or blue/red lands.

Would B/R Zombies work as a deck?

It can put down aggro while also removing creatures and causing discard, simultaneously. Creatures all have built-in reanimation or card draw. Smallpox slows down the enemy while filling the grave with dudes you can get back later. Tymaret and Gravecrawler are best buddies.

Obviously the big problem is Tron and Eldrazi maindecking graveyard hate.

You could do it with Fatestitcher.

I'm pretty tired right now, so I'm not going to vet this idea at all:

But with a combination of eldrazi temple, and Eye of Ugin, you could maybe loop eldrazi spells with fate stitcher, kozilek's channeler, etc.

Cast Kozilek (keep him as a 4 of) to refill your hand.

>>44869046
Not the same guy but with the lack of control in new modern Cavern isn't 100% needed. If you have one or can afford it go for it but it's a prime reprint target in SOI in my opinion and i dont see why it would get more expensive.

Look at where you are man. This is the Modern thread, we're the smuggest fuckers who are too "good" for Standard but too poor for Legacy and can't continue playing the format because it is becoming more expensive than an annual mortgage payment.

Let me tell you something about you people with your bullshit non-competitive decks. I've helped tonnes of people like you tune those pieces of garbage and you never learn - you just want someone to do all the work so you can play it, you're EXACTLY like us faggot netdeckers here. You just don't have the ability, patience, or will to get good at this game to help yourself or use the card search engines. You constantly want to put a square peg into a round hole and want someone to carve it out for you.

See, the difference between people trying to make some stupid niche deck work and the netdeckers is one thing, netdeckers know they fucking can't build a deck for shit, which is why they're netdeckers. And the thing about "my pet deck" players is that they hide behind their incompetence by claiming it's "casual"; no, you just suck at all aspects of the game and netdeckers at least practice under the most difficult situations and can't help but develop some skills. There's nothing wrong about playing casually, casual is fine, but often, "casual" is simply the excuse for sucking.

To respond to your statement this is why nobody wants to play Magic anymore because even after 20 years of existence we think it's okay to tolerate those who refuse to take off the diapers and remove the training wheels. And the players who made an effort to get good just leave because their charity is exhausted after week after week of people asking for handouts with NO signs of improvement.

Bestow? Aura decks do see play in modern, but competitively you'll want to go G/W instead of R/W. This is because 1 mana hexproof creatures available in green are amazingly good at carrying auras.

Try
4x Gladecover Scout
4x Slippery Bogle
4x Kor Spiritdancer
4x Spider Umbra
4x Hyena Umbra

Run this as the core of your deck, and then whatever auras you want. Mesa Enchantress and Verduran Enchantress are budget alternatives to Kor Spiritdancer. If you want a soldier that's good with auras, Hero of Iroas is the obvious one.

ChannelFireball bankrolls Limited Resources. Though Marshall doesn't shit-talk MTGO as much as he should due to being on the payroll of both Wizards and ChannelFireball, the Limited analysis of each set is pretty solid.

I think Limited Resources set reviews are the only thing in all of Magic that will have any lasting value. All these articles talk about format environments that nobody in the future will care enough about to understand, they're often only useful for the month they come out and useless after that. However, if you need to draft an old format, the LR podcast will still be there always offering relevant information.

>>44871603
Zach Jesse was Drew Levin, a Starcity employee. The whole Goyf shit was a non-issue as far as I'm concerned.

I'm not dickriding ChannelFireball here, the whole TSG thing was hardly transparent and once it was revealed he was legally in the clear there was no statement issued. They tolerated Travis Woo's shitty behavior for page hits. And I'm putting a lot on them for probably shitting up the marketplace.

Yeah. He is that. I guess I have to admit he's an awful person. His video content has always been good and entertaining. He started the whole streaming Magic thing and he's still pretty funny.

>>44871760
I guess I'll have to flip on this as well. I didn't realize he was harassed by notable members of the community. I thought the guy put the thing up for charity and it was a done deal.

It is not really that card prices are so ridiculous(though it is part of the reason) but more that price support was shit so there was higher EV taking the goyf over the right card for his deck.

>>44872650
You're not casting the spell so it stays in your hand.
>>
>>44872616

Ohhh this is Ascendancy Combo-Control. This is a lot grindier and wins slower. Think of it like Twin only it has the Gifts package that can either go for Unburial Rights or the combo.

I prefer the all-in combo build to race Tron and other aggro decks
>>
>>44872648
heartbeat of spring is better than aerie. You're only gonna play it when you're about to win anyway, and powers up all lands rather than just the enchanted one. Also is twiddle not a good pick here?
>>
>>44872713
heartbeat is a good find.

twiddle is decent, but it's outclassed by dream's grip because it's strictly better, and psychic puppetry because it's got splice. If I need more untapp effects it's the one I'll use.
>>
>>44871723
Just look up B/W Stompy, has the best results right now.

Holy shit, post Oath Eldrazi will be a horror. It seems like everyone is playing it already and it feels as overpowered as I predicted.

Does OG omnath have a place in green ramp strategies like tooth and nail?
>>
>>44872832
No, if you're casting tooth and nail you want to be grabbing Iona/emrakul, borgy/griselbrand or some other combination that locks up or ends the game on the spot
>>
>>44872849
Rather Emrakul/Xenagos.
>>
>>44872849
I mean as a threat or way to build up mana for one turn to cast tooth and nail or even Emrakul easier.

reposting here, didn't realize other thread was dead:

Just returned to the game. I've got a Burn deck from a bit ago. I appear to be missing Atarka's Command, Eidolon and Boros Charm.

How fucked am I?

Also, this affinity deck I found on M-L but with Abbot of Keral Keep instead of Goyf looks interesting.

4 memnite
4 ornithopter
4 tarmogoyf
4 vault skirge
4 galvanic blast
4 shrapnel blast
4 ensoul artifact
4 cranial plating
4 mox opal
4 springleaf drum
4 blinkmoth nexus
4 darksteel citadel
4 glimmervoid
2 city of brass
4 rancor
1 lightning bolt
1 mountain

I've got the cards to make it, and I like that you don't just scoop to the common hate cards like Stony Silence.

Thoughts?

>are faeries playable at fnm level
My experience with FNM is that people bring a little bit of everything. You might see some Junk and Tron decks as well as Affinity and Infect, but also many niche decks like Storm, KCI and Lantern that people play simply because they like those decks or because they want to test them against the metagame and learn to play them more properly, and you also get a lot of people with janky homebrews.

So, depending on how the meta at your LGS, Faeries can be everything from an excellent choice to a very poor one. I find, however, that its far more important to find a deck that fits your playstyle rather than one that is objectively the best choice for the meta. Especially at lower levels such as FNM, but even at a GP, for example, it's often far better to bring a deck you think is fun to play so that you've, intentionally or not, playtested it rather than a deck that theoretically should be an excellent choice but that you don't have as much experience with.

>>44872731
I tried building this deck a hell of a long time ago but I'm pretty sure it (mostly) doesn't work.
The issue is (I think, not a judge) you can't tap mana between untaps if you splice psychic puppetry twice because it is all one spell and resolves all at once. This might be different because tapping lands is a mana ability but I don't think so.
>>
>>44873249
true, you don't get anything out of untapping the same land multiple times, but I don't think the deck hinges on that.

What ultimately makes or breaks the deck is speed, consistency and how well it fits into the meta.

It certainly has the speed, as it's capable of T2 goldfish wins.
It's the consistency I'm unsure about.

Fast uninteractive linear decks v Tron.

Does that sound like an interesting format to you? Go ahead, brew a new fair deck OH WAIT EVERY FAIR DECK LOSES TO TRON LOL.

Or maybe you could brew a new aggro deck I JUST HOPE FOR YOUR SAKE IT'S FASTER THAN EITHER BURN OR AFFINITY, OR IT WON'T STAND A CHANCE, AND EVEN IF YOU DO COME UP WITH ONE, IT'LL JUST REPLACE THOSE DECKS AND WE'LL BE BACK TO METAGAME SQUARE ONE

As a jund player im just waiting and hoping that all the infect forces tron out and people to jump ship, then I can just focus on anti aggro. Thats the only hope fair decks have right now

Is Elves Tier 2?

I'm looking for a good, fun Aggro deck to build as a backup in case Affinity (which I'm currently building) gets the dick after the pro tour. Elves seems to fit the bill as far as what I like to play, but Merfolk also looks like fun. I'd prefer to keep it under $1000 to complete.
>>
>>44874012
Affinity won't get the axe. The only reason Twin got it is because it has won every modern pro tour.

So will Twin be justified in running mainboard pacts now? To stop them from bolting Kiki

Thugths on Death And Taxes atm?
it recks tron and the eldrazi decks imo
allso has good sideboard hate for affinity
>>
>>44874012

Elves is a very solid tier 2 deck. The archtype has a lot of things going for it and has shittons of room for experimentation. It has a lot of builds, and all of them have shown tournament results, whether it be the Lead the Stampede swarm build, or the Chord of Calling toolbox build. It's also well positioned in the meta now due to it being an aggro-combo deck.
>>
>>44874063
Are you fucking retarded? If the card would be good now, why wouldn't it have been good before?
>>
>>44874012
Affinity is fine bro. Every deck can beat it if they wanted to.
>>
>>44874112
Because you used to not have to worry about bolt. Now they can bolt Kiki if you go for the combo turn 5. With pact you prevent that and win.
>>
>>44874157
Also an argument for pact is you dont have to worry about rending volley nearly as much as you did before. I could see an all in combo style going for turn 5 working, potentially.

I think for blue i'd rather just play scapeshift right now. I will be testing kiki out in grixis though
>>
>>44874030
This. Twin was the undisputedly best deck of the format, and Wizards don't want Modern to be that kind of format. Think of it as the deck getting to retire with the champion's belt and possibly make a return in the future when people have almost forgotten about it to prove wether it can still hold its ground.
>>
So since I'm finally going to have cards out of standard rotation, any advice on good cheap cards? I have a good blue/black deck coming, but I don't want my red black lands going to waste. Any good red black decks for a low budget?
>>
>>44874197

>Countering Rending Volley
>>
>>44874418
Exactly. You DONT have to worry about it as much anymore, making pact have more targets.
>>
>>44874270
>Any good red black decks for a low budget?
nope
>>
>>44874507
Has anyone ever went as far as to why?
>>
>>44874220
>return in the future
People barely forget about decks that good. That's why people are still forcing the fairie meme. Also wizards has unbanned 2 cards in modern ever, so twin isn't coming off the list

>Valakut
>Bitterblossom
>Nacatl
>Grave.-Troll
Yep, sure is good you can count all the way to two, anon.
>>
>>44874579
There will be much fewer exarches out there from now on, they will likely be dropped from most sideboards in favour of other things. Things like bolt can now interact just as well to kill a kiki, and rending volley itself cant target kiki, meaning even if people do keep them in the sideboard, it will be less of a blowout.
>>
>>44874698
Why would people suddenly decide to make their decks more vulnerable to lightning bolt and switch out exarch?
>>
>>44874730
I mean people will switch out rending volley for a spot to hit other decks.
>>
>>44874131
Twin was fine too. Pod too, but you just remember it as a broken deck because it has been so long.

In a year you will say Twin was overpowered.
>>
>>44874845
Pod won roughly half of the GPs in a year, and was almost 40% of the top 8 for those GPs too. It's ban was reasonable. It wasn't broken yet maybe but it was sure getting there.

Is it possible in grixis colors?
