As a burn player choosing whether to bolt a delver or just burn the face is one of the hardest decisions I'm consistently presented with.

They run 4 delvers and counterspells, I only have 4 bolts.
>>
>>44992425
Delver is a trap in Modern. The lack of good library manipulation means that you have to play far more creatures to reliably threaten your opponent's life total, which in turn and together with the lack of library manipulation, means that your Delvers are much less likely to flip.
>>
>>44992451
No, its your money, do with it what you will.

I've pulled plenty of 50-100$ cards from random boosters I bought on a whim. I've also lost hundreds of dollars in the same way.

Go for it. Gambling is a big part of this game.

I am also insanely lucky and always open cards that are worth more than the money I spent on the packs.
>>
>>44992619
I usually wait to see if it flips. If they play Visions turn 1 and go top top into Delver then of course you bolt it right there though. I think the mu is still favored, though.

Delver was only good in Modern when it had Treasure Cruise. At all other points in the deck's history it's sucked donkey nuts in Modern. That's why Twin was such a thing, because even at the times when Twin wasn't very good all other blue decks in the format were fucking atrocious.

I thought about buying into Faeries, but holy fuck Cliques and BBs are outrageous.


Instead I decided to get my 4th Wooded Foothills and Windswept Heaths to up my fetchland collection to 4 sets out of 10 (other two being a set of Arid Mesas and Polluted Deltas). They'll probably repeat Faerie cards again when they get around to MM3, as a draft archetype it seems to be a fixture.

Spoken like a true retard

Blue is liked by good players because its main mechanics are card selection (i.e. consistency) and card advantage (i.e. winning)

Counters are just catch-all answers. They're not loved as much as they're just appreciated for almost always being the best option when you have to deal with some problem

But really, having a favourite color beyond mechanics makes you a pathetic manchild.

>implying people do nothing but permission
The only difference between me casting Mana Leak on a Ravager and you Bolting it is that if he has an Etched Champion, you cry but I don't care. Also that my counters will get anything, but your Bolt can only Bolt.

this is looking only at the cards used as answers, not how Bolt can also be a threat, you fucking idiot
if you even thought of bringing up that Bolt can go to the dome you're a moronic sack of shit and you're probably the product of cuckolding
>>
>>44993909
>control
>not masturbation

Control is literally you telling the opponent to wait so you can jizz all over their face at the end.

This also describes Storm.
>>
>>44993956
Not "new", but I have a good feeling about Ad Nauseam in this meta.

>>44993956

>>
>>44993946
You can be solitaire without being combo.
E.g. Infect, Affinity, Burn, Tron, Scapeshift, Memedrazi (...)

>>44994006

>>
>>44993619
Nah, I genuinely pull money cards consistently. Bought a box of Innistrad when the set came out for shits and giggles and to draft with my friends. Ended up with several Lilianas and a playset of Snapcasters.

Similar things have happened every time I've bought sealed products.
>>
>>44993969
Control is trying to prevent your partner from prematurely blowing his load, making sure he doesn't get to leverage the opening's surprise factor before you can assemble the tools needed for your sexual extravaganza, and then giving him the loving of a lifetime when he's run out of gas and you're still there with a full tube of lube

No, but Modern is pretty much all linear, noninteractive decks. Burn, Affinity, Tron, and Infect and Eldrazi vary from "I have a few spells to slow you down" to "turn 2 hellbent"
>>44993969
I would rather play Control than any linear deck. At least you're actually playing Magic if you lose.
>>44994006
Non-Titan Scapeshift is pretty interactive, especially for a modern deck.
>>
>>44994045
>Similar things have happened every time I've bought sealed products.
Right, I'm far more liable to believe this over the fact that you just didn't feel the exceptions were worth remembering.

Also, everyone playing in Innistrad already had a playset of Snapcasters for 10 dollars/each. Only cost me $40 for my playset as compared to your what, 100 for a box?
Nice luck you got.

Control just shoving answers down your throat isn't any less linear than burn shoving threats down your throat.
>>
>>44994207
>if he has an Etched Champion, you cry but I don't care


i.e. counterspells are a universal solution while other forms of answers are much more narrow

i.e. counters are a way for the control deck to have several ways to answer any given deck's plan in the main 60, as opposed to other decks' far narrower (and more powerful sometimes, of course) sideboard answers

i.e. you don't play the counterspells just to say no and draw a bunch of cards, you do it for the same reason play Stony Silence against affinity: making your own deck marginally worse so that you can hopefully drastically reduce the quality of the opponent's deck and thereby squeeze out a win


i.e. Bolt et al are narrow, counters are general you boob

>>44994235
Please, tell me how """"interactive"""" affinity is.

>>44994127
BGx is dead. Play Scapeshift.

Scapeshift is actually pretty solid against aggro. Four bolts mainboard to kill burns guides and a couple spells snares for their eidolons, along with a set of remands to keep them behind and a set of cryptic commands which are usually online by turn 3. You also have a couple Baloths and flashfreezes in your sideboard.

Well a paper pauper deck outside of things like mono u gush decks are like $5 to build.

Theres nothing wrong with asking your playgroup if they would be interested in buillding pauper decks as a fuck around thing. We have like 9 or 10 of them all together and will do random deck pauper tournaments every once in a blue moon and its a blast.

But lets be real anon, asking someone just starting to play magic to "build a modern deck its only a few thousand dollars" is a real shitty thing to do. Draft or play sealed or cube with the guy or give him one of the groups budget deck to play with.

Back when there was no limit on how many cards you could have of the same name in a deck the generally agreed upon minimum number of cards in a deck was 40.

Also, Lotus+Channel+Fireball is more likely the deck you're thinking of.

Brainstorm.
Delver is always a 3/2 the game after you play him, he hits at least once for 3, most often twice.

In Modern Delver doesn't flip and the second most popular removal after Bolt is Swords, not Abrupt Decay. Sometimes gifting your Delver opponent 3 life in Legacy is a death sentence.

How is competition at FNMs at your local game stores? I'm considering getting into modern and I was wondering how it looks, I've been lurking around these threads for a couple of days and it seems like things that aren't tier 1 or 2 are a waste of time. I don't have enough money to just drop 600$ on a deck so I was thinking of building a budget version of something and getting cards I need over time. Is it possible to do? I saw a couple of budget affinity options that are upgradable but I'm not very interested in that archetype. Something like Delver, Faeries or Death and Taxes seems much more fun to play.

-Get a split between Manaweft and Gemhide Sliver. Dodges fringe maelstrom pulse cases.
-Run Bonescythe Sliver in the mainboard. Probably getting rid of a Diffusion Sliver.
-Run Chord of Calling if you're going to run Sentinel Sliver. Vigilance is overrated since you're going to get islandwalked by Merfolk and trade poorly with Goyf. Your only real advantage with Vigilance is against a weenie deck like Burn or Hatebears.

No I'm telling people to stop calling their combo brew a blue deck because they put a counterspell in it. It's like calling every deck with bolt in it a red burn deck.

Now that twin is gone, we'll start to see the return of good blue cards. Maybe not the cantrips, because storm, but wizards is getting more comfortable printing "sometimes counterspell" and "sometimes ancestral recall" effects.

Unfortunately fun decks are not cheap and Delver, D&T, and Faeries will burn through your $600.

I honestly do not recommend playing the format. Like most decks the only cards that are interchangeable are your mana base and your mana base is going to be the most expensive part of your deck. Prices are outrageous and budget options quickly don't become budget even though they're on the fringe. The only reason I'm playing it is because I got in on the ground level and now my Modern cards have tripled in value. You will get more play-time using your $600 on Limited or Standard. Or use the $600 to buy fakes. $250 should get you four sets of 56 cards that contain most of the manabase and high-end cards in Modern. The remaining money can be used on filling out the deck.

The only recommendation I can give to anyone who wants to experience the format at all is to just build mega-budget burn. Just pick up every burn spell that's 3 damage to the face including Incinerate and Searing Spear and Monastery Swiftspear and go to town. Though not as effective, some decks are still cold to it.

Today, I watched a guy spend over a hundred dollars on three cards. I don't care how much money you actually have, that is a poor fucking choice.

The real issue is that she's fair.
Not big enough or tricky enough to win with.
But then half the decks in the format or more aren't going to try to win with combat damage in a way she can deal with. Legendary, so you can't get 2 out if you draw them. Basically, it's a good card, it's not good enough that you couldn't find something better.

The removal checks of the format are Path to Exile and Lightning Bolt.

This does not mean that cards that die to those spells are unplayable. But the decks that that get fried by those spells usually have some means to apply continuous pressure or the creatures are blank to Path but not Bolt. And the creatures that do eat a Path the deck can leverage the extra mana.

See:
http://sales.starcitygames.com//deckdatabase/displaydeck.php?DeckID=97570
See how this deck is very vulnerable to 1-for-1 removal. But it shreds the opponent's hand and often kills the opponent with one or two creatures.

i've gone 2-1-0 at the last two modern days at my local shop, playing a janky deck that is far from tier1 or 2. I spent around 140 but it could probably be built for under $200 right now.

The meta is generally affinity, 8rack, Utron, RGtron, infect, merfolk, sometimes UWx control, delver, etc. You should try to scope out modern events at ur shop and see what decks pop up, to figure out what might be viable for you to bring.
I would also advise you to try out different decks on cockatrice or proxy or whatever before buying anything.
Also, you can do red burn pretty cheap as >>44997169 suggested.

How much do I have to fear an upcoming affinity ban? Should I sell out now? What's a t1 deck that won't get banned?

>>45000769
So lets see how this diversity promoting ban has gone so far:

Decks Lost:
-Twin
-Jund/Junk
-Amulet

Decks Gained:
-Eldrazi

Meta Breakdown:
Aggro: 46->51% (and gaining a lot)
Control: 21% (and falling)
Combo: 28%(and quickly falling)

Last SCG top 16 has 13 aggro decks.

The collapse of modern is amazing, the DCI will never do it, but they really should reverse their ban decision.

Honestly if it was up to me I'd keep Summer Bloom too but too many people would bitch about it

Going to sleeve it up for two modern events at my LGS's, see how it goes.

I just realized something. The reason why I hate such high prices in Modern.

It's because I do everything in cash. I don't waste my time dogfucking around keeping phonebook-thick trade binders; I just buy what I need.

Now, you can trade 4 Inquisition of Kozileks for a single Grove of the Burnwillows. A couple years ago you could make that same trade. Except the difference now is that instead of trading four $1.50 cards for a $6.00 card you're trading four $25 cards for a $100 card. The relative values haven't changed, inflation has just gone through the goddamn roof to fit in line with $100 Lilianas and $200 Tarmogoyfs.
>>
>>45001278
But really the most important thing in my opinion is the wasteland reprint. Would really help shit on tron/eldrazi lands.

Modern staple or vintage staple?
>>
>>45001323
meme staple
>>
I think it's too early to say that aggro is dominating, especially off the weight of a single tournament. After a shakeup most everyone just resorts to aggro because that's what's reliable and nobody has put in the effort to research new deck tech and test the metagame.

Given that most pros don't even bother practicing for Modern like renting a house and grinding the format for a week anymore I think we should just wait a month or two for MTGO results.

naya burn and zoo are already pretty gud m8. Sure Green is a bigger part of either of them than white is, but boros gets along with gruul just fine.

So what do you want Shadows of Innistrad to bring in the format? Do you think Flashback will make a comeback?
>>
>>45001771

Cycling
Transfigure
>>
>>45001771
Shadows Over Innistrad will be a shitty cash in on a popular set with all of the new mechanics being shitty +1/+1 counter allocation and oversimplified garbage that brings nothing back. One mechanic from the previous block will be brought back (a la Landfall), most likely Flashback. Wizards is probably also going to cash in on Lovecraftian pop culture references due to the name of the set being a reference to one of his works, and Emrakul possibly being a player in the story. All in all: 0/10 worst set ever made, Magic will die.

How to really fix modern

Unbans:
Summer Bloom
Preordain
Twin
Splinter Twin
Seething Song
Second Sunrise

Ban:
Thalia
Vryn Wingmare
Wild Nacatl
Glistener Elf
Inkmoth Nexus
Arch Bound Ravager
Eidolon of the Great Revel
Atarka's Command
Cursecatcher
Inquisition of Kozilek

This would make modern a much more enjoyable format.
>>
>>45001771
the returning mechanic is going to be morbid because capitalizing on creature deaths is morbid and lets players get value out of when their creatures are removed because it negates the feel bads of when your fucking rhino dies

why do people expect anything nice out of this company anymore? they just disappoint us every single fucking time and we line up for more with optimism of things to come.

How to fix Modern:

Play Legacy

>>
>>45002240
Any deck with a clock and Spreading Seas shit on Tron/Eldrazi
>>
>>45002269
legacy is even worse than modern
>>
>>45002269
That's not how you spell Pauper.
>>
>>45001377
Dude it's pretty obvious that so far aggro is dominating
Whether this will remain true or not is yet to be seen but right now aggro is the undisputed king, the others cannot compete
The aggro lists haven't changed, neither have the others, but the ball's in "not-aggro"'s court because they're the underdogs now
>>
>>45002269
Thats not chinaman
>>
>>45001881
Altar of the Lost and Burning Vengeance flashback combo incoming, boys!
>>
>>45002323
Aggro is always the safest go to deck after a banning, this can be seen throughout every ban update

Just like right after the Pod/Cruise banning Burn got extremely popular THEN midrange variants came back into the picture.
>>
>>45002269
I only get to do legacy once a month. xmage is great though, I actually get to play shardless and delver on there.
>>
>>45002300
>I'm an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about :)

Weren't you the retard in the last thread who played Miracles on xmage and managed to lose against the worst deck in the entire format?
>>
>>45002370
>>I'm an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about
you sure are
>>
>>45002353
except people were still playing the other decks that also existed before the ban and they all got trashed
it's not like people switched from Tron or Eldrazi or whatever other dumb non-aggro memedeck they were playing to aggro, it's that aggro is well-positioned in the meta pre-transition to new deck tech

I'm not sure what's so hard for you to understand about aggro being good in the current status quo, before people start adjusting for it
>>
>>45002205
Literally UR delver with goyfs and two delve-monkeys
IS THIS WHAT DELVER HAS BECOME??

>>
>>45002400

This. As an Elves player, I abhore that matchup. It's a good thing Skred is for people who want to be a special snowflake, because really, when your deck has 4 different boardwipes, you can safely assume any creature based strategy can go right out the window
>>
>>45002394
Its pretty much RUG delver with modern downgrades.

Nothing new
>>
>>45002508
I mean as a UR delver I'm stoked as hell that it top 8'd but I wish the guy had piloted the version with less goyfs and more pyromancers, although he played the better version, it salts me that UR scrapes by and goyfs can give it the boostershot it needs.
At least blue gets Frostwalker, the best P/T ratio of any 2cmc creature :^)
>>
>>45001771

I want them to man up and reprint Counterspell.
>>
>>45002728
I don't want this tbqh
there is already a variety of counterspells, and nobody will take the 1U variants for mana's sake. Counterspell will no doubt buff blue but it won't seem like an organic buff, it would ruin the fun of choosing between a handful of viable counterspells.
Make a strictly better cancel, or another cool downside counterspell (logic knot did good on this)
That surge counterspell looks cool, but cantrips are sorc speed so it sucks, it could maybe be good if you run all instants... idk they're trying, give it time friend.
I like revealing cards as a downside, lifeloss is pretty standard, next turn downsides are cool imo (next turn dont untap the lands used to cast or something)
Grow some cahones wotc!!

Holy fuck I asked you guys what you want to see modern grow into, and all you chucklefucks give me is

Vampires, Goblins, Zombies, for starters. Faeries could use some love (not a lot tho fuck faeries)

>Twin should be banned because it's too popular and turns Modern into a four-turn format
>No more controlling decks left to hold back Aggro

g'job
>>
>>45002930
they gave tribal that new equipment in ogw, and goblins got a new bushwacka. Dunno what vamps got since I don't play them.
beware of upcoming t2 goblin meme decks, they may be more fragile than your t1 burn, but they are just as fast.
Bring boardwipe

so modern is dead right?
>>
>>45002834
>Now that I have 7 mana on turn 3 Ill cast my karn
>uhh. r-remand your karn
>lol ok bro whatever
>>
>>45002944
It's not aggro that holds back the format...
Midrange decks with a bit of defense can stabilize and take over the game (jund). Counterspells fuck tron, they have a bad blue matchup, so with blue in short supply why play a midrange deck like jund when you can hit turn 3 with tron and aggrowin, or drag out the game if you want.
Affinity is kinda the same, counter the cranial plating and they can't aggro you.
We just need more blue guys
turns is the new twin
>>
>>45003071
But remand does work?
Manaleak/spellpierce work too, cryptic is a big cockblock, and snap+remand is a big cockblock too.
U/W has runs logicknot.
Turns can remand your karn, then exhaustion on their turn, then cryptic/snapremand, then win.
>>
>>45003123
Wizards wants modern to be a format where its ok to cast 4 drops on turn 2 and 7 drops on turn 3. Hard counters ruin all this degenerate fun
>>
>>45003150
Also people should sideboard their terminates for dreadbores vs tron, I think Jund has a good time vs tron but I'm not sure.

Unbans
> Summer Bloom
Summer Bloom with Amulet is too oppresive. A 6/6 Titan with Trample is a pain in the ass and only a few decks can deal with that.
> Preordain
It could make a comeback.
> Twin
Only if Exarch is banned and Wizards dont print more stupid tap/untap creatures.
> Seething Song
Storm is a thing in the magic world. It can get out of control easily os its a no.
> Second Sunrise
No more 60+ rounds plz. Next

Bans

> Thalia
Its a Legendary Hatebear that cucks on Infect and Storm but gets fucked in the ass by other decks.
> Wryn Wingmare
Same as Thalia
> Wild Nacatl
Awful top in late game. Not used in burn at all.
> Glistener Elf
If you cant deal with a 1/1 Elf post sb, then your deck is not good enough.
> Inkmoth Nexus
Need a lot of setup since it cost you 2 lands to attack.
> Arcbound Ravager
Affinity have too much sb hate to ban Ravager.
> Eidolon of the Great Revel
Eidolon is not oppresive to deserve a ban
> Atarka's Command
Why should this deserve a ban?
> Cursecatcher
He only works in one deck m8. In that case, Vial should be banned to stop Melfolk cheating creatures.
> Inquisition of Kozilek
Affects most decks except Tron and Eldrazi. White Leylines exist so it doesnt deserve a ban.

Nigga stop lying, you have no clock and a single resolves O-Stone, Ugin or Ulamog is game.

None of those will resolve easily vs faeries

>>45003642
I don't know what list he's playing, but it makes sense. Thoughtseize, Clique beats and hold up countermagic are basically how I side for Tron when I play Esper Control. That's basically what he's playing maindeck, which is why he gets shit on so hard by aggro.

So are Wizards genuinely too blind and stupid to see that SCG has an absurd amount of power over their secondary market to the detriment of their actual customers, or are they complicit in it?
>>
>>45004140

MTGO dailies died so demand for paper Legacy spiked.

>>45004326

SCG literally cannot have a meaningful impact on the secondary market, or else SCG wouldn't make any money.
>>
>>45004326
Wizards has only had increased profits over the last decade so they give no fucks.

SCG only has as much power as autists who throw money at them give them outside of them running tournaments, which they do at 10x the production values of WOTC themselves.
