Do you enjoy this new meta now that Splinter Twin and Summer Bloom are banned? Have you played it in a competitive environment yet?
>>
>>45050160
Modern is dead.
>>
Magic is dead
>>
>>45050160
I quit modern.
I'm selling my modern collection and getting into legacy, because the best thing that could happen to that format was wizards ignoring it. And the worst thing to happen to modern was wizards caring about it
>>
>>45050143
Gifts is pretty nice too for that matter. Iona is probably the weakest choice for double Entomb these days, we're in the age of perfect (albeit painful) mana. So decks routinely run two or more colors and can play around Iona.

>>45050169
Depends. Do you want to be slow, or get blown out by Pyroclasm?
>>
>>45050269

The LEAST Wizards could do if they wanna pretend they care about Modern is try to keep the costs down.

The fact that Wizards want to exercise stiffing control over the format AND completely refuse to support it with reprints is baffling, it seriously looks like they're trying to kill it on purpose.
>>
>>45050320
But they clearly don't care about Modern.
Standard and casual draft is where the money is at.
>>
>>45050320
It's a higher-powered format that's growing at a time when Standard is especially shit. Either Wizards controls the format more tightly and starts "rotating" it with bans, or they kill it to protect Standard.
>>
>>45050359
This. They don't even test for modern they claim as so that they can start making more treasure cruises so that they can Konami it up and make even more money
>>
>>45050359

>But they clearly don't care about Modern.

My point is that, instead of just leaving well enough alone they're taking moves to deliberately HARM the format. They keep talking all that good shit about how they want the format to be "healthy" while doing absolutely fuck all to KEEP it healthy.

They don't just "not care" about it. They're doing everything they can to keep people out of it because they want it to die.
>>
>>45050160
Twin ban boggles my mind. Twin has had more of the meta in a less diverse meta before but its been left alone. It is the poster child for fair combo and interaction. It literally makes no sense as a healthy ban.
>>
I'm planning on getting faeries as my first modern deck but I can't afford just buying it all at the same time. I've been thinking of something like pic related to start with and get bitterblossoms, thoughtseizes and cryptic all later. I'm not expecting to win much and our LGS is pretty casual but is it worth bothering or should I just buy whole deck later?
>>

Perhaps you should learn to read cards first.
>>
>>45050459
Splinter Twin was banned because combo is inherently unhealthy, anon! Turning creatures sideways is healthy, fair, and balanced!

Now go buy more Oath and Battle packs so you can finish building that sweet new Eldrazi deck that everyone's talking about, I hear it's quite good and cheap, well below the high barrier of entry you should expect for a non-rotating fomat! But it's a good, fair deck, so buy now before the prices spike!
>>
>control doesn't exist

I usually only play standard and legacy because aid hate modern, but my friends and me are going to a tournament relatively soon. Is it safe to use a control deck? Like an esper control deck with a gifts package? Rely on planeswalkers?
>>
>>45049827
Cross thread post.

You describe my situation to a T. Here are my thoughts on the matter: the new eldrazi deck is cute but doesn't have what it takes to be anywhere near as good as tron. If your okay with that then go for it. Personally, I don't like what I see in the deck. Further more, if you are concerned about an impending ban, I would like to point out that the prime target is the Eye of Ugin.

In the meantime, I just foiled out Ancient Stirrings and pimped Pyroclasm. I give 0 fucks and so can you.
>>
>>45050758
>control deck

Control literally doesn't exist in modern. Play some sort of aggro deck with bolts in it
>>
>>45050728
With Twin you turned infinity creatures sideways. I don't see why people are so up in arms about the ban when it was really Twin's fault that this format became Creatures: the Tappening.
>>
>>45050779
Twin was the deck preventing this from happening. GBx is about as fair as it gets, and those fair decks preyed on Twin. Twin was like the Force of Will of Modern; holding back unfair decks while losing to fair decks. Now it's just people ignoring their opponents and seeing who can goldfish better. The instant you consider blocking, you lose.

No. They just wanted to make sure Tron and Eldrazi would warp the Pro Tour so they could hype BFZ+OGW up better. They literally said the ban is for the Pro Tour and these two decks are the only legitimate candidates for BFZ+OGW posterboys.

Lorwyn/Shadowmoor pretty much ruined faeries on its own when it came to the black side of the tribe excluding Bitterblossom.

The worst part of a return to Lorwynmoor is that Tribal was retired after Rise of the Eldrazi, which means the plane loses out on a rather iconic design quirk.

>>45051447
Neoslivers at least retain the "static abilities: the creature type" design even if it was casualized to only care about your own Slivers. 2nd generation Allies are an uncoordinated mess compared to the first wave.
>>
>>45051510
Slivers lost the fact that they're supposed to be a giant hivemind. Like, that's the entire reason they were printed in the first place. The only difference between slivers and allies is one has static abilities, the other has ETBs.

>>45051530
Sliver lost a flavor note. They still universally possessed static abilities.

The BFZ-OGW allies are either creatures that have Ally tacked on for no reason and at best do a thing that's fringe relevant to the Ally strategy of going wide, or they're like Stonework Puma and exist only to trigger Rally effects or be tapped for Cohort abilities.

We've gone from Hada Freeblade in Worldwake to Expedition Envoy in BFZ. Elite Vanguard Ally is not what should be happening to the tribe, there should have been a second Freeblade put to print.

And after the bolt resolves on a 1/4 Fumarole, the very first activation of the P/T flip that started this whole mess resolves, giving you a 4/1 with 3 damage on it.

It never fails to amuse me how many people are crying over the twin ban. MUH FAIR COMBO DECK! WHAT EVER WILL I DO.

Heres a thought: kiki-jiki still exists. Why not, I dunno, DO THAT.

This is not a huge surprise people. They banned the two most repressive decks in the format to make them a bit worse. The combos still exist, they are just slower and more fair than before. Theres an aggro meta right now because no one knows what to expect, and its smart to play a fast, proactive deck to prey on brews.

TLDR: calm the fuck down people. This is not a big deal, and when the dust settles I suspect you will see a better meta as all the decks that were being pushed down by twin and bloom have a chance to fight over the top spot again.

Now its too slow for tron and aggro decks and gives other combo decks more time to assemble their combos before you can combo off. Also makes ad nauseam a nearly unwinnable matchup because it's now impossible to race them even on the play.
>>
>>45052202
Twin was the only viable control deck in the format. The ban gimps it to the point that it's basically unplayable.
>>
>>45052202
To be fair, the kiki-jiki combo is much weaker that splinter twin. Because he is a 2/2 creature there is a lot more removal that outright destroy's him, where as the combo with twin required you to do four damage or outright kill the exarch.
>>
>>45052259
Aggressively Swan Song the Ad Naus.

>>45052302
Twin with the combo boarded out wasn't really so much a control deck as it was a weird bloated tempo deck taking up the control -role- if only because it was too bloated to go fast and aggressive like other tempo decks could.
>>
That looks like a fun one. Hardcast Emrakul that got tutored up? Yes, please.

Could also use some Mutavaults for additional trigger activators.
>>
>>45052259
Its only 1 turn slower. And twin only won as fast as possible against decks that didnt have creature removal anyways. Calling it too slow for tron is a lot of hot nonsense, you either had 2-3 turns to play with or you lost to karn either way.

>>45052302
Twin was never a control deck.

>>45052310
Thats fair, but that was also the intent. There are a ton of decks that would have been fun and interesting, but they had no good ways to stop turn 3 exarch, tap your land, turn 4 twin, reliably. Not to mention the decks that could do that turn 2 and 3 off of a mana dork.
>>
>>45052310
Not to mention that it just so happened that the decks best equipped to kill Deceiver Exarch were GBx decks, who are now being pushed out of the format by aggro.
>>
>>45051477
if you want to play dredge, it's a far better deck in legacy. i've never played dredgevine (or heard of craterhoof dredge), but i've played against and it's decent, seems pretty fun

>>45052421
Just use changelings and eldrazi spawn, with a lot of eldrazi that have good cast abilities.

THE ONLY QUESTION YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT MODERN NOW

IS HOW FAST CAN YOU RELIABLY KILL YOUR OPPONENT
>>
>>45052442
Twin was a deck that ran a bunch of reactive spells to slow down the other player, then once they have enough resources to defend it they go for the kill. Seems like a control deck to me.
>>
Do you guys actively buy expeditions or know guys at your LGS that buy, or successfully sell them if they are pulled?

>>45052394
They would just use pact of negation in response and in order to do that, you would have to wait until turn 6 to combo, which gives ad nauseam more than enough time to assemble the combo and protection for it.

>>45052442
It was hard to combo against ad nauseam before, but it was possible if you were on the play and they didn't have a god hand. Now its impossible because they will almost always have the combo by the time you can combo, meaning you would just lose on the spot if you try to combo. As for tron, it gives them four turns to find tron as opposed to three, which is huge, remanding karn on turn 4 means you can't combo on turn 5, and that means they will have access to ulamog.

No, control is about stalling an opponent until you can build a threat they cannot deal with. Twin was a hybrid deck, a combo deck with control pieces.

>>45050743
"Perhaps you should learn to read cards first" was actually the polite way of saying "No. Your dumbshit 'combo' doesn't work because you're functionally illiterate."

Goblin Grenade targets a creature or player and does 5 damage to that target. The sacrificing a goblin (ie: Zada) is a cost and therefore doesn't trigger the radiate ability.

Vintage is for faggots who play with double sleeved Benjamin Franklins.

Control decks are king in a format where everyone tries to jam their linear strategies. Cards like Spell Snare and Mana Leak are alot more playable now that basically all the blue combo decks are dead.

Aggro decks are also quite easy to stabilize against with Bolts, Shackles and other tempo spells. The only real concern are cards like Thalia and Voice.

Plus, lets not forget one of the most overpowered pieces of shit that has been printed in recent years.

Vintage has no banlist, every card in the history of magic, but some are so good you can only have 1 copy in your deck, those are called restricted

Legacy uses the whole history of mtg as well but bans all the vintage restricted cards and some more besides

Modern only uses cards printed 8th edition and after, and of those only ones printed in a standard legal set

Standard is only cards printed recently, it rotates as time passes, cards graduate out of standard legality

Get a load of this faggot. I bet you think DnT in legacy is also not a control deck. I bet you think 8rack is also combo. Grixis is stretching the definition? What is the fucking definition, there is none, but ones some retard came up with. Those same idiots are the one comparing MtG decks into circle of combo>control>aggro or other stupid shit that isn't remotely true. Every deck is unique and you can't come up with a new deck just with "yeah, this is control, so it wins tron as it's combo" or other unbelievable weird things I get to hear.

You create decks to battle decks-to-beat, they all have some vulnerabilities or so. That's why rogue decks work. MtG decks have so much archetype bleed, that you can't make it easy way on deck building. That's why I say that one guy is a fucking joke with his stupid assumptions.

Ok, I have dropped my spaghetti far enough, thanks and sorry.

>>45054972
Other than that legacy is dead? No, but honestly is your local legacy scene active, because no point making a deck into format that nobody plays. Wouldn't really bother with modern, unless you really like top tier decks or you know you want to make a particular niche deck just for your own amusement.

Also, legacy isn't that exciting as casual playing. Some match ups just aren't fun to play.

Oh GOD no. Faeries as a tribe tend to have lousy p/t for their cost, so regardless of how powerful and flexible their abilities are they absolutely can't race aggro, and they can't out-grind Tron.

>>45054841
DnT and 8Rack are Prison decks. They play the role of control, but do it by denying the opponent resources instead of gaining the advantage themselves.

Grixis Control in modern is actually a midrange deck, just like the UWR Geist decks that used to be popular.

These definitions are important because they inform both deckbuilding AND metagame decisions.

If you try to make a control deck in any given format without knowing how control actually works, you‘ll end up with a bad midrange deck. It will win some games, but it will also just lose to itself sometimes.

They could just stop making standard shit.
Instead of thinking their only choice is reprinting Counterspell or costing Cancel at 5UU, they should be supporting archetypes that haven't been supported enough or at all.

They have hordes of cards worth of untapped design space of shit they haven't touched and could push at the power-levels of NPH-RTR without breaking any format but they insist on acting like they have to have the same format every season with the only difference being wether 3 damage to face or creature cost R at instant speed or 2R at sorcery speed.

Rhino itself is not the problem.

The really powerful ones aren't, like chill, dread of night, havoc, insight, the circles of protection, perish. Basically all the uncommons from tempest. The game is way more fun when you can cast huge, swingy effects.

>>45058159
Except they don't do that. "Black creatures can't attack". "Destroy all green creatures". "All red spells cost 2 more to cast."

Good color hosers have good effects, not just the current narrow removal spell ones.
>>
>>45058397
That's not what linear means in magic. I'm just saying that it's already a "did you draw your sideboard cards" format. Why not let people play with fun sideboard cards.

Aura of silence is pretty sweet

The Sylvan Advocate is actually a surprisingly good card. The land buff doesn't matter but dropping it later is really gnarly, it basically becomes goyf
>>
>>45058468
fun is subjective don't use that as your arguement, they're also the definition of linear. You have one colour directly turning off the game for another colour. There's no skill to that.

>>45058540
>>45058468
Also accepting that the format is heavily sideboard oriented doesn't mean we should print more cards that allow that. We need more broad cards that do a lot of different things

Linear is a deck with a single minded way to win, like storm or boggles where there isn't a backup plan.

The skill you test when you play with color hosers is how to play around things. If they have a compost out, is it worth casting your spells. Do you bring in disenchants in monored. It actually makes the decisions a lot more interesting.

While I am wholly supportive of ridiculously complex exclusionary jargon like "Boggles" and just plain "Eldrazi" and by extension "Fetchland" and "Manland" or calling creatures "Bear" or "Grey Ogre", I feel that for the better of the game the more descriptive deck names should dominate.

"Aura Hexproof" really should be the deck name. It is the most descriptive. "Exarch Twin is more descriptive than "UR Twin", "UR Exarch Twin" even more so. Likewise "Eldrazi Control" and "Eldrazi Ramp" are more evocative than just plain "Eldrazi".

Sure, you can say your deck is "Boros" and anybody in the know immediately assumes it's a R/W Aggro deck, but I do think we should call it "R/W Aggro" or at the very least "Boros Aggro" or even better "R/W Landfall Aggro".

Unfortunately everyone wants to look like a big-dick know-it-all and new players are just confused all the time. Because they're always asking questions and everyone's eager to answer them to sound smart.

Cryptic and Clique are rather ambitious, I would cut those in favor for cheaper cards, I don't usually get to UUU1 with my list before the game is almost over, granted I run 16 lands. I don't think it's feasible to be casting that consistently on t4. When you get the money a playset of Remand is pretty much a staple as well.
My list certainly isn't a stock list, but I'm in pure U/R so I can have slots for my janky cards.

oh, pic is dated, I pulled the Stormchasers for Snaps

Probably. Decknames should be designated by some combination of their color, archetype, key cards/mechanics, and if some generic aggro/control sort of deck then the two-blocks they were in. Using my example I tell people in ZEN-SOM Standard I played Boros Aggro; it would be more useful to new players to tell them I played R/W Landfall Aggro. Or someone played W/U Control with Stoneforge Mystic and Squadron Hawks instead of Cawblade.

See, it's easier for people to hate things when it is condensed down to a name. Affinity, Cawblade, Valakut, Jace, Faeries, Jund, fucking plain old BLUE. I think a lot of the hate in this game is unfounded and people just jump on the hate-bandwagon. I met a guy who hated Jace, Mind Sculptor except he had never fucking played with or against one - I asked him. I think to this day he still hasn't. I met a guy who just refused to play against anybody playing Jund even though he didn't have any idea WHY Jund is so degenerate - he couldn't describe to me the philosophy behind the deck. And new players are prone to think it's okay to dislike something just because the pros say so.

So, being in Modern General I'll just say this, people actually hated Living End at my store. Not because it was me who played it, but just hate the deck. The found it easier to hate it than pack board hate for it. Sure, it's sometimes just not wise to pack your sideboard with such narrow graveyard hate but come on. I actually stopped playing it because I saw that kids were parroting the morons in their hate even when initially they had a laugh getting beat up by stupid crap creatures.

So I had most of the stuff to build BW Memedrazi. I traded for the rest and am now watching the pieces skyrocket in price.

I feel like I should sell it and invest in something else. Or pay more bills. Am I retarded for wanting to sell a high-tier deck? I already have Burn and am working on the fine details in playing it.
>>
>>45060850
I'm not denying names like Fruit Loops and Cephalid Breakfast are fucking incredible for the culture of the game. But I'm willing to sacrifice minor bit of lingo if it means newer players aren't overwhelmed by all the stuff in the game and there's just too many questions to answer.
>>
I'm running Black/White modern allies with a splash of green,

I know it's not a great archetype, but I'm just looking for feedback on the decklist.

http://pastebin.com/WdWjmzVZ

It's not going to win anything more than a local tournament if I'm lucky, but Allies are a fun tribe, and I just want a fun interactive deck.
>>
I wish Needle Spires came into play untapped. Straight up Plateau with a manland attached to it without the basic land types.

Go for it Wizards. Nobody fucking plays Plateau anyways, this wouldn't change that and Plateau will still get played over it because of the basic land types. Go ahead, give Modern Burn a manland it could use, just take it completely over the top in power. Aside from the implications in Burn I think nobody would have complained about it aside from their bullshit crying about loss of symmetry within the cycle.
>>

Sweet, loving the squelch. Snapback is cool as well.
The cryptic and vendillion were kinda tossed in b/c dat value, I found that games lasted to the point where I was effectively flooded (unless I got a cantrip chain, that feel is great)
I may go 19, maybe even less. I don't think I could pull off 16 though, so you have my blessing sir (I have a jeskass that runs 16 so I can see how it'd work)
Remands are an excellent idea to add (or to replace the manaleaks with) I'm just too poor atm
Anyone else have thoughts on the Cryptic/Vendillion in U/R Delver?
>>
>>45061060
Thoughts on Lantern Scout?
And Coco Allies could top8, it's certainly not affinity/burn/tron tier but it can be strong as fuck
>>
>>45061264
Some people are talking about an Allies mill deck with rally the Ancestors on that other card like that
>>
>>45060952
If someone asks me what it does, you tell them "its x/y/z combo" or "u/w" control". I don't want to lose the fun deck names because some asshole wants to appease his ego

>>45052442
>it's only one turn slower
>literally so fucking idiotic he thinks you'll always get the land drop on turn 5 and also have the Kiki-Jiki as well, despite needing an entire extra card that has to be conjured out of the fucking aether

I would put 4 in burn and be an unstoppable burning machine.
All I really wanted was Barbarian Ring reprinted, but I'll take a manland + whitecleave cliffs in a heartbeat
>tfw zoo probably still wouldn't use it
>>
>>45061264
I was thinking of Lantern Scout. It's one of the few new allies who are pretty reasonably costed and give a good effect. Running some might be good. I could cut out a couple Kalastria's maybe.
>>
>>45061317
I've heard about that, with excavator. Seems pretty neat, kinda like Living End I guess but it mills them.
Beatdown is sweet but ally mill gets a few style points (rip emrakul tho)
>>
>>45061347
When I look at the new cycle of manlands I wonder whether Wizards knew it was designing manlands in Worldwake that were actually good in traditional archetypes of those colors (R/G - typically stompy; W/U - typically control; R/B - typically aggro, bad card but appropriate for the role; U/B - typically control; W/G - typically stompy).

Really, what were they thinking when they designed these new ones. At first glance none of those cards seems to be designed to do what those color archetypes typically want. I'll admit the U/G one makes some amount of sense given that those sorts of decks want to play Instants and it having hexproof means you can commit to a block safely and have some mana available for countermagic for their play.
>>
>>45061412
It wins on turn 3, and pretty consistently too. You mill yourself for a few turns until you mill the allies and then you hit them with a mill for 60
>>
>>45061350
It looks neat as a 1 of. Maybe 2. Enter the battlefield effect so it has immediate value, good body, good effect. Not a 4 of tho imo.

Naming conventions in today's Magic are godawful regardless of any website. Everything has to be analyzed, scrutinized and simplified to death, which leads to awesome decknames such as:
>Naya Aggro
>Dark Jeskai
>Abzan Midrange

I long for the day where decks had inventive names like Coco Puffs, The Rock or Catfish.

Legacy burn is literally cheaper than Modern burn
>>
>>45055633
Standard is the most common but it's also the most boring

Modern is the more common among the more competitive neckbeards who thumb their noses at the "standard kiddies" but Modern is the worst format that has ever existed right now, it's garbage in its purest form

Legacy is probably the "best" but it's not something you can play without either having been in the Magic scene forever and being in possession of the important cards, or buying counterfeit Chinese cards (or playing with non-autists who don't care if you use proxies)

I recommend Pauper as it's the cheapest way to actually have fun instead of just wanting to kill yourself for playing this horrible card game

All it takes is one of the least invested hoarders cashing out for a card's bubble to pop.
For the whole game's bubble to pop, however, every fetchland, shockland, and modern staple (4x ofs in tier 1 decks no "staples" like Auriok Champion) not in the hands of hoarders/stores would have to enter the market at the same time, which is more unlikely.

No, that honor goes to Trading Post.

A deck built around Trading Post is ridiculous. It's like they condensed all the irritation caused by a deck like Eggs into a single card. Problem is, Trading Post isn't that great and doesn't interact with the opponent.

Theoretically it doesn't do anything because the card is still named Forest, even if it's land type is now Island.

Thank you broski
18 lands, and that other guy ran 16, maybe I need to lower my landcount.. what do you think?
It would free up space for a sweet card or 2, I may go 19 to stay on the safe side but I have been getting flooded with 20..

Love the single twisted image for tricks and a cantrip, really neat card.
Vandalblast I've never seen before, but damn thats a fine artifact hate; single target or a shatterstorm, better than shattering spree in multicolor, gonna have to pick one up (using smashs atm)
I'm guessing the spacial contortion is for killing game 2 firewalkers vs burn as well as etched champion, AND it has sweet, sweet stormchaser tech
Echoing truths is strong, can stop a kiki+resto angel combo
And I see you have Jace, Many Text Lines. He's a baller and a fun as fuck card, I hope you -8'd one of the tron players
