    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Lurrus has been widely adopted for Shadow builds, though not universally. It seems they're mostly a Rakdos deck now, though I've seen Mardu, Grixis, and Jund builds as well. I guess it really depends...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I noticed an Enduring Ideal deck top 8'ed an online Prelim recently, here's the list:

    Enduring Ideal by Rinko - 6th place MTGO Prelim 6-JAN-2021
    2 Skyclave Apparition

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    My experience is that tutoring up a plains is actually better than drawing a blind card, as we want to hit our land drop every turn. Yes, if the game draws out, which it does do with some regularity,...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I had tried a Yorion build of my WU list and found that it was different, but not really better. As you've noted, while you draw into Enduring Ideal less frequently, you are also less likely to draw...

    Nether Dance of Doom (Esper Stax)

    Ported from Standard, to Pioneer, to Modern. This deck basically came into being because I wanted to play Nether Spirit, and this allowed me to do so while playing a bunch of other pet cards. I think...

    It's been a while since I've updated my list here. Below is what I've been playing since Astrolabe got banned. Nothing too different.

    Re: Zoo

    Fortuitously, Xmage just released an update and added ZNR to the mix, so I've done a bit of testing with Zoo. I tried building a Shadow/Tribal Flames version, but it just seemed so clunky. I get the...

    Admittedly, I haven't played Modern in a while (I really only played table top, so COVID kind of put a stop to that), but given that Lava Dart is pretty prevalent, making X/1 creatures a bit of a...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I don't have much to add to the furthering of the Ideal deck at the moment, but I do think that we may be reaching a space where some divergent strategies become realistic. Specifically, the Heliod,...

    Another card that I'm contemplating for this deck is Kiora Bests the Sea God. I don't know that this card specifically offers anything that isn't obtained elsewhere, but it is another game winner at...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    That's fair. I guess without Porphyry Nodes in the main any longer, Abolisher might be more practical. I like T3feri, but felt that protecting him might be difficult, though maybe not against control...

    UPDATED LIST with Theros Beyond Death

    Turns out the new enchantment-based set gave this deck a few new toys (go figure).

    This is very much the case. After playing around with one of the 5-0 lists from a recent deck dump, I like it quite a bit. Also, not that it comes up often, but I really like that the inclusion of...

    Re: Jeskai Stoneblade

    Any consideration to going the direction of Jeskai Saheeli? The core of the deck is very similar, but you have the "copy cat" combo to just win. Teferi, Time Raveler is a solid edition that makes...

    Not much of an update, but I've swapped out Stasis Snare for Prison Realm. While providing slightly less devotion to white, the scry 1 is welcome, as I've always felt the deck could use more digging...

    When it became apparent that RNA had an enchantment theme, I got really excited, but I don't think there's anything in it for the Ideal deck, unfortunately. Smothering Tithe was the one card I...

    Soul-scar Mage seems good to me, but when I tested it, it pushed me more towards a prowess build, which became more and more aggro to the point of me questioning why I wasn't just playing Burn. That...

    While I like Dawn of Hope as a card, I don't think it fits well into an Ideal deck. I think the creature production aspect is just too slow and mana intensive. Also, making small creatures works...
