well shit... looks like that painter servant fag was kinda on to something. It's still too slow, but it's cute. Anyways calling it, affinity and eldrazi are going to win the next GP

Is there any stopping the Eldrazi?
EYE OF THE MEMER
it's the shills and the kikes
for eldrazi arrival
Listen, and understand! That meme is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are
emptied for shekels and Oath is out of print
Tfw banning will literally just equal the most uninteractive deck format. Wizards better not fuck up these niggers need to realize unbanning could be more effective than banning.
>play Esper list with sweepers, effective removal and card advantage against Eldrazi
>get run over anyway unless you have the nut hand, or if you ever play against any deck that isn't eldrazi
B-but the m-meta will adjust!
new cards came out like two weeks ago
decks using these as their key pieces were 8% of the decks coming into the tourney (okay not that bad) but 6 out of the top 8 and had between 70-90% winrates against every other deck in the tourney
The developer that was commentating outright said that they knew for a fact that it was gonna be busted, but since "they don't test for Modern," they took the "wait and see" approach and went ahead.
One busted format and thousands of sales of OGW later...
8% of the pro tour was composed of Eldrazi decks
75% of the top 8 and top 4 were Eldrazi decks
Both finalists were Eldrazi decks
>finally get to play a tier 1 deck
HAHAHA GET MEME'D FRIENDS
best thing is how excited the announcers were sounding at all the Eldrazi decks day 1
You could feel them slowly shifting into subdued and hidden panic when they realized just how bad things had gotten, but they kept on talking bullshit because they had to keep up the corporate-positive appearance
There's a creature type that didn't have any cards below 5 mana and had special lands for getting them out, since they cost lots of mana. The 2 eldrazi that were less than 5 mana weren't colorless so the special lands didn't work on them.
This was done on purpose.
They then released a bunch of low cost, colorless eldrazi on purpose to rake in cashmoney.
God dammit WOTC, how can you continually fuck up this badly this continuously
BFZ was offensively bad
New Modern bans were completely clueless
Now Eldrazi pushed so hard it takes 6/8 spots on next pro tour
I thinm modern actually dead unless wotc intervenes in a positive way
The meta has to shift, it being able to faceroll other former t1 decks means that it isn't a fluke. Either no one expected it or it really is top of the pile.
The numbers it showed up in, combined with how prepackaged the deck was rule out an unprepared field in my opinion
You're assuming you're going to be alive long enough for it to matter. Vendilion doesn't have to die for its draw to happen.
Fucking Christ you people dont understand inevitability.
I'm aware that they aren't the same card. But the easiest thing to compare knot-seer to is vendillion clique. It's a slightly stronger version of the effect but it's also a higher costed card with a less flexible cost and timing, and a less evasive body.
That's a nice land, shame is something happened to it.
>mfw this is one of the best cards at the moment
Considering it has a 90% win rate and an 80% advancement rate, on the back of stacking Gut Shot and Dismember as it's prime removal (specifically tuned for the mirror), what the fuck do you think is gonna beat this? It isn't even fully tuned.
The odds of Eldrazi advancing the way it did with a reasonable winrate is around 0.0001%. Thats with shit mirror-match removal stacked throughout the decks.
does anyone here play at scg on Wednesdays/FNMs? They're ~45 mins from my apartment and I've been considering driving out. What's the regular turnout like for modern? How many fags will show up with eldrazi?
>Not paying attention to your opponents tapped and untapped lands.
>Playing against Eldrazi
>Not expecting Warping Wail
You gotta pick the right moment busta. You can't just whip it out.
You (and others) keep posting this land. We keep fucking tell you that it doesn't work against Tron because you need a nut-draw to cast it on time, by which point the Tron nut-draw has Vindicated a land.
Now you're suggesting we use it against Eldrazi, a deck surprisingly even faster than Tron and doesn't need a nut-draw.
Are you touched in the head or something?
I played Tron just last fnm and this card and Bramblecrush won it for me.
You people just spout garbage about what deck can goldfish this and that.
You have no real play experience
>get kinda hyped from watching the PT
>want to go down the block to my LGS and grab some OGW boosters for shits n giggles
>have a really bad cold so I feel really weak and wobbly
I wish I could join in on this meme party
Red needs "destroy target colorless creature" for R at sorcery speed.
Fits the color pie, fits the flavor, helps the meta.
Or blue needs a herycles recall but for colorless creatures.
Or a sweet green landhoser like seas claim, idk make it work on non-basic for standard balance.
Cmon wizards, "we don't balance for modern" is the dumbest sack of lies I've ever heard.
id assume combo decks like ad nauseum and grishoal brand that might win even through a thought knot seer. maybe infect or burn.
>real play experience
found your problem
what if you ran something that had a bunch of vendetta and go for the throat and then something like a death's shadow and worship and some way to ping or something. maybe like a pox pacakge in or whatever
>We banned Twin to encourage format diversity
I don't even like twin
>thinking this isn't exactly what they wanted
The idea is to drop painter's servant early to disrupt tempo. It forces the Eldrazi player to Warping Wail or Dismember which binds them for 1 turn at least. It's not a long term solution, but I think it's a damn good temporary measure to fight back.
Although, this will probably only be good in Aether Vial or Affinity decks, everything else is kinda hosed by wasting a turn to play down a band aid, which we know for certain is going to get removed one way or the other, just a matter of when. It's also fragile to hand disruption, which Eldrazi could very easily board in.
I don't give them too much shit.
Given infinite cards of infinite designs, eventually you get some degeneracies.
They just assume that they would always have truly powerful effects require mana other than colorless.
Which I mentioned, likely only good if you have affinity or drop turn 1 Aether Vial and spam out whatever and hope to race. Perhaps merfolk can do this and chain Sea's claim or spreading seas to further slow down Eldrazi Tempo
Bitch to these guys to change mtg
I'd probably just board out all the Merrow Reejery's if I actually do this, since we're never going to hit turn three playing against Eldrazi anyways, but this is all just an idea for now, I'll have to actually test it at my LGS.
That would be true.
But WotC has printed cards that don't mean that you have to have 4 land drops. (I'm not sure why a mana per land drop is fair early game, and 2 mana extra mana effects are fair generally but they are.
The closer the game gets to (I can kill you on turn one reliably and you can't stop me reliably turn 1) the more it becomes like a coin flip to determine the game.
At which point, why are we paying WotC or anyone for Magic cards? Coin flipping games just requires an RNG, and we can access those for near free.
>yfw you realize this is exactly how the multiverse feels when fighting the eldrazi
>we will never know what happens when Eldrazi bump into Slivers
>yfw you realize that only powerful planeswalkers could defeat them
>yfw the most important of them is jace
>this means mind sculptor unban
>a glorious era of control will reign supreme
.... how do you get jace out fast enough?
It's true that eldrazi don't have that much access to haste, so they can't kill you with combat damage before you have the option to use sorcery spend effects, but you still need 4 land drops or equivalent fair effect, whereas they only need 2.
>mfw Wizards did this to give flavor to the new eldrazi set to make up for the shit writing
>mfw you actually cheering for affinity
>The developer that was commentating outright said that they knew for a fact that it was gonna be busted, but since "they don't test for Modern," they took the "wait and see" approach and went ahead.
What makes me laugh is pod was banned because of "design space" issues around it. But when it suits them they say they don't pay attention to design space because they only care about standard from an R&D standpoint. You can't have it both ways.
I think i'd prefer the Painter over Torpor orb since you can always put more into play with Aether Vial
It isn't a big deal when Merfolk mainboards 8 Seas and Dismember anyways, but probably shit in any other deck
A war between the two monsterous "races" of the Eldrazi and Phyrexians would be an interesting block to masturbate over. The Eldrazi invade Mirrodin - every card depicts a pile of garbage fighting a pile of tentacles; Praetors leading a charge against a skittering horde; basically Chaos vs Tyranids. There will be like 10 token cards per set that depict the Mirrans hiding and just wondering what the fuck is going on.
Wizards will never have the stones to do something like that though. Which is too bad.
Nothing. The Eldrazi are one giant organism tied to their respective Titan. If the oil infected Eldrazi the Titan would just order the splinter-organism to self-destruct. And unlike the events on Zendikar, there's no getting to the Titan to infect it and even if you did, it would just slough off that infected appendage.
On the flipside there's not going to be any mind-control shenanigans because the Phyrexians are just piles of metal and flesh animated by the oil.
We'd just be trading the new problem for our old problems.
Why not reprint it as a Legendary? It still lets it keep the Eldrazi Zoo Identity, but makes it harder to keep up the tempo and forces Eldrazi to play more conservatively, instead of turning their board sideways every turn.
And on that day, the MTG Community received a grim reminder.... Too bad the Magic Lore totally jobbed out Ulamog to four idiots, three of which were so stupid they released him to begin with.
I feel the power of the eldrazi cards and their lore aren't quite matching here....
your image is incomplete, you know what needs to be done
I'm just here to say that splinter twin's banning has zero relevance to the rise of the memedrazi. It would've happened anyways, with or without the ban.
Quit trying to use this to justify unbanning twin.

SAMEFAGS STOP RUINING MY MODERN GENERAL REEEEEEEEEEEE
cards that seem fair can get degenerate if you introduce other cards.
Heck, Relentless Rats could get degenerate if you release of whole bunch of cards that cost a small amount of mana and use cards with the same name in your library to deal damage in some manner to your opponent.
I find it very interesting how very few, if any, of the Eldrazi decks used Kozilek's Return, even the ones that used the red eldrazi.
It's like the deck doesn't give a shit about what their opponent has and just wants to slam in as hard and fast as possible. Like why take a turn off to board wipe when I drop 5/5s and 4/4s onto the table on two lands?
That's why the deck is so powerful. It doesn't burn around the bush like Tron does, it just bends you over and fucks you right in the ass with 2 mana 4/4s with upside and 3 mana 5/5s with haste.
Now you're thinking like a modern player!
Gee, it's almost like they knew they were going to ban Twin and Bloom and realized that aggro decks were going to run rampant so they gave Tron new tech for it to keep up
why do people keep posting
best girlin modern threads?
Why doesn't Reality Smasher read "counter that spell unless its controller exiles a card from their hand"?
Stop fucking implying they test anything for Modern.
They don't. They don't give a fuck and the timing of the bans is to make the Pro Tour not be the same as the last Pro Tour, which in that aspect it was a resounding success.
They printed Volcanic Fallout as a fucking Mythic and for that they should have been raked over the coals. The fucking glue that holds decks together like permission, ramp, removal, shouldn't be goddamn rares like Hero's Downfall.
Do you see what they're doing? They're ensuring that the only playable cards have that fucking hologram.
That Blood Moon + Ensnaring Bridge + Rituals deck is actually really good against colorless Eldrazi though.
Other versions pack Worldbreaker and Newlamog, though, so they have a chance at fighting through to hate.

"Colorless" is a fun an interesting and unique sixth color that isn't a color that is cohesive and fun and not completely forced and a shit mechanic that could have been handled much better.
Buy more OGW packs!
The decks cost nothing except for Temple and Eyes.
The other cards are Modern Staples (Path/IoK/Thoughtseize/Godless Shrine)
Can sold the Eyes/Temple for a nice profit but then I have nothing to play.
Not sure what to do now, /tg/. I was nearly done building my own Eldrazi deck, going the BW route with Heartless as an option, when the PT blew up and memedrazi
exiled the competition.
I still want to play my janky tentacle monster shit, but it's clear something's getting a ban. Would it be better to sell my Eyes now at peak hype, at the expense of more explosive starts for however many chances I get to play my deck unhindered until April or whenever they pull a new ban? And if I keep them, stick with my BW build or be a good goyim and buy my missing Reshapers and Mimics?
No you should keep the cards and buy then build UR storm anyway. Then in the future you don't need to re obtain cryptics or the shocklands when you want to use them again. Always strive to increase the size of your collection.

Normie pros broke the deck.

Now the deck will get the axe and I will not be able to play my big hentai monsters deck anymore
ELDRAZI DID NOTHING WRONG
Is Storm really that bad? I'm looking at it on mtggoldfish
I just want another deck other than Burn for Modern. Once I'm done with my second modern deck I'm done buying cards as I'll have two modern decks and also Legacy burn.
It's probably the most linear deck in the format. You'll think it's cool the first couple of times you play it and then wish you had a deck that actually lets you play an actual game of magic instead of playing solitaire and doing math. And now that I see that you have burn already I'm even more confused as to why you'd want to play Storm. It's literally just a more complicated burn deck. Build something that actually lets you interact and play a game
.I sort file like every deck becomes linear as you add more and more power to it.
Like, it becomes a no brainer to turrbo fog every turn you can in a powerful enough turbo fog deck.
A control deck lets you do one or two things early and then says no multiple times, drawing cards and putting down a finisher.
Not really, it's that those two lands finally have something good to be used with. It's like if Mishra's Workshop was printed but the game only had crap Artifacts but then they printed an Artifact-based set after everyone forgot it existed.
I just like combo decks and Storm seems interesting and cheap on top of that as I already have the Rainforests and Tarns, it'd only be about $125 to build it. The only other deck in the whole format I'd be interested in building would be Jund but it's just way too expensive.
Only a handful of those cards would be anywhere near already existing modern decks.
It's absolutely the two sol lands that make the "eldrazi deck" and they are specifically the things they could ban and the deck would evaporate.
If you honestly like no interaction solitaire and only losing to fizzling, go ahead. It's a good deck, but Jeskai Ascendancy would probably be more fun and can be interactive too.

It feels good to know I aint rusty
Didnt see U/R 'drazi coming though, the cards looks good in standard but I never figured they would become so degenerate
dude ascendancy is boring as fuuuuuuuck, plus you can still actually fizzle with the deck. not too often but still, it's boring. most decks have enough removal where it's like 'did i draw caryatid and ascendancy? ok cool gg' plus the kill is the least satisying kill of all time. just doesnt feel fun to play at all
t. i play a lot of combo
There's no real point to continue buying staples. I'll buy boosters to draft but buying staples is kinda ridiculous at this point. I'll have three total decks once I finish this next one , two modern, one Legacy. Buying into another modern deck would be another $1250 or a legacy deck I wanted would be almost 2k
Oh you mean the midrange-y builds? I've seen them a bit, they're kinda neat but it just doesn't feel powerful. Ascendancy isn't really that strong of a card without Dig and Cruise.
Oh yeah, running PIF and Grapeshot is a better wincon than the flesh//blood thing, but not nearly as stylish
Fiery temper is modern legal now actually. Timespiral reprint.

Yeah it's horrible. But I feel as if Storm is pretty decent in the meta. There aren't many counters to fuck your combo up and as long as you don't get paired up with Burn, you'll have a fairly good chance at sculpting the combo and racing other decks.
No way jose it's one of those awkward old as shit cards that got Timespiral'd, like Arena, Desert and Unstable Mutation. And Urza's Factory. Still no idea why they gave it the substype 'Urza'...
Is there any deck other then Storm I could even build for under $500?
I have mostly Blue staples. Playset of Cryptics, Serum Visions, Remands, Misty Rainforests, Scalding Tarns,Blood Moons, and a few other counters like Dispel and Spell Snare.

What I'm getting from this is that MaRo shouldn't be allowed in Design Teams
I think deep down we're masochists. We want a deck whose powerhouses require us to lose life, discard our own cards, and pay waaay too much cash. You're right. We're paying twice as much for a deck that wins half the time. And we're playing the worst kind of game known to Magic: interactive ones. Ones that tire you out so you miss crucial upkeep triggers in round 9 of the tournament. Why we do this I have no idea. But I really can't imagine playing anything else. A part of me feels so weird without that Turn 1 discard into turn 2 Goyf into turn 3 Lili.
>4 Oblivion Stone 150$

It's a problem of bad design on wizards part. Eye and Temple were printed when the original eldrazi idea was "big motherfuckers that need a lot of ramp", so the eldrazi tokens were 0/1s and colored eldrazi shat out tokens right. Even still, it was just better to ramp like a madcunt in green rather than relying on weak token production. So when Eye and Temple were used, it was mainly just tribal bullshit outside of Tron.
Then wizards gets the bright idea to fuck with how colors work, and how colorless works, which is fine. Except they decided to slap that onto a colorless tribe that was mainly about ramping into big fucking creatures. And to make it worse, they decided that since colorless is the 6th color, they thought "we need an incentive for people to play this shit", they threw on powerful effects. They thought they would be cheeky cunts, since TKS and RS are limited bombs and anus mana is hard to come by in draft, so everything is a-okay. Eldrazi Mimic is another cheeky cunt limited card too, a bear that morphs into bigger shit. Same with Endless One. And skyspawner. And Vile Aggregate. And Ruination Guide.
If you've been paying attention, IT'S BECAUSE WIZARDS DESIGNED SHIT FOR DRAFT FIRST, STANDARD SECOND, THE REST NOT AT ALL. It's the whole "draft priority" first shit that once again ruined another format.
Urza's Factory was actually printed for the first time in TSP. It's not Timeshifted.
The type is an homage to how old cards had random types that didn't mean anything.
It's similar to how Mangara's ability is just a tap to activate and he exiles himself on resolution. They worded it like that because that's how old cards like Nevinyrral's Disk worked.
Is Living End super secret tech or useless durdle jank that scoops to any counterspell?
Much like this... you wouldn't think it's legal, but for some fucked up reason it is.
ELDRAZI DESERT DECK TECH WHEN
It's a good deck. It got better now that Twin is banned. You shouldn't see very many counter spells now and the board wipe that living end provides helps against aggro if you time it right.
back to your hand, which is pretty much worse than it being countered. When it comes out of suspend the card gets cast, which is why it can't be countered when you go to suspend it. It's a weird mechanic, like how it gives suspended creatures haste.
Oh thats kinda neat.
Thought it was a Rigger/Contraption thingy where they just said fuck it and didn't expand upon it. Easter eggs are much better than Riggers.
>MaRo killed Extended

How do we stop this madman?
If im building affinity should i start with one in the top 8 or with the one frank karsten built. Also would it benefit me to go ahead and get playsets of stuff like skullclamp, artifact lands, and deciple of the vault while im buying cards?
>running r/g tron

who needs colors anyways
Alternatively you could run tendo icebridge or gemstone mine and save some dosh with holding up to burn
Remember that goyf has never been printed only in the "preview" set then 2 compilations, unless they knew goyf was going to be a modern staple and printed it as its future self from modern masters that only existed because of the preview, thats some motherfucking time traveling paradox right there
Yeah that's fair. The reason I think that flusterstorm is more interesting is that it can be anything from a bad spell pierce to a crazy multiple counterspell. It makes people think about letting the stack clear before firing off counters.
Furthermore, consider flusterstorming a flusterstorm? How about when they have untapped mana? It's got a lot of play to it.
>Ph.D in math

Oh shit I've never thought about that...
Goyf reprint in standard soon confirmed. >>45295401
I hope it's really intricate but it will probably be like Clues
As someone who's played storm for a while, yes the matchup is bad, but why the fuck is a burn player bothering with blood moon, and more worryingly, how are you at all worried about it?
Deflecting Palm does not work against grapeshots. They are individual sources of damage.
Board out your ascensions and Ravings for bolts and empty the warrens. Revelry is a trap for them if you play competently.
Warrens is sometimes too slow, but has the virtue of not dying to their interaction, and also creating chump blockers if you fizzle.
Also, before you try it, dragon's claw is abysmal.
Run 8 sea fish featuring 4 quarters. I think you'll be fine unless they dump 3-4 mimics on T1
I've been betting on that for years. I regularly buy handfuls of Steamflogger Bosses knowing that one day, assembling contraptions will be a thing and getting to double your output for four mana is going to be meta-defining.
And when that time comes, I'll have dozens ready to flip.
Why in the world are they a dollar a pop now? What justifies that? Steamflogger Boss has been a thirty cent card for almost its entire lifespan.
>Is Esper Control any good?
Esper is better than its meta share would indicate, because it's hard to play and most people think control is totally dead in Modern.
You can beat up on other fair decks, and Supreme Verdict and Path are the best answers for Eldrazi you can get, not that that makes it a favorable or even match up.
Stuff like Bogles and Tron will give you trouble, but they're beatable.
My quads confirm Merfolk beat Eldrazi as I've been claiming for a week now.
Plus, it works since the program is as crippled as Quasimodo. 2016 and it is the way it is.
Untapping and global pump with cantrips doesn't feel powerful to you? Is this the card-evaluating equivalent of watching too much porn?
Sell it on eBay.
Card prices would be totally fine if they removed mythic, reinstated core sets through masters set reprints at the same intervals and reprinted the reserved list. It's totally fucking bizarre that they continue to adhere to retarded 20 year old promises, they've almost killed the game I love in legacy by pricing everyone out of it through their bullshit manufactured scarcity. At this stage only a huge management shake-up or impeccable Chinese fakes can save us. Tianxia, brehs. Tianxia...
>the TKS always hits removal every time meme
It is objectively less likely than Jund hitting you with T1 discard.
It'll happen, and it sucks when it does, but it can't happen every game.
Maybe Changeling tribal decks?
I have no clue man, apparently it was supposed to be a non-whacky card but some guy thought it would be funny to give it a non-existant ability
he was right, but it's only ironically funny in a sort of corporate incompetency, "oh shit nigger what are you doing" kinda way
BW Control can beat BW and UR Eldrazi with ease, but it can't beat Burn, Tron, Land and Scapeshift.
Do you play a deck that beats the new top dog but loses to two T1 decks and two popular memedecks, or you play the top dog itself?
Aight fair. Damn cool card though, I really like it in that list.
Wish I could find that one hipster guy's extra turns decklist from OGW pro tour, I wanna see how he ran his but I can't find it anywhere!
Keep comboing, my friend.
Do fucking casuals really think Mind-Sculptor reads "0:Win the game"?
Jace is notoriously bad against aggro strategies in Legacy. Burn, Infect, Goblins, Affinity, Elfball and Maverick all beat non-Shardless Bug. Burn beats Shardless too, and Miracles.
>deck list from the pt is unlike any seen yet
>how many times have you played against Merfolk in the last two weeks with your deck that just got revealed at the pt?
I don't think it would be good in a hyperaggressive meta. Its kind of like sensei's top: its power level is tied to how long it stays in play.
If you can brainstorm 4 times, you can probably win. If you fetch a couple times, you definitely win. However, if it comes down and they're threatening a ton of damage, you either bounce a creature or lose Jace. On a board with 1 creature, that's great. On a board with a nacatl and a goblin guide, or a matter reshaper and a TKS, you're probably playing a 4 mana brainstorm. Its a game winner in a control mirror. Its a speedbump against aggro
I played my own list ever since it got published on Xmage, and it should tell you a lot since it was my personal brew and not an optimised PT list.
But by all means don't take my word for it, go out and get destroyed
Would it? Hawks are good at stalling out. Jace capitalizes on this time. Unless they have removal or a creature with trample or multiple creatures, you could be able to win a game. Will that break modern? I don't think so. If you add stoneforge? Maybe oppressive. Still possibly too slow
