    DTB - January 2020

    https://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=24420&f=MO

    Looks like without Oko/Opal that Mono-Red Prowess is legitimately the best deck. The GWx "Company" deck is making a resurgence,...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I have seriously lost almost all interest in Modern as a format, honestly. RL cards are dropping in price over the past few months so it's getting even easier to commit resources to Legacy and play...

    So, I guess I'm right on time, lol.

    Oko, Opal, and Mycosynth Lattice banned in Modern today.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    SCG Open in Knoxville had 4 Urza Oko decks in t8. I'm pretty sure this will continue until some action is taken. Whether the format can adapt is open for debate. More importantly, is there enough of...

    DTB's for November:

    https://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=23760&f=MO

    Death's Shadow is on top along with Urza/Oko. Tron variants and Burn are solidly tier 2 (but likely closer to tier 1 than tier 2,...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I've heard the same from others about Pioneer, but the format doesn't appeal to me. If they take action on Oko I'll resume playing the format, but until then I think I'll put my Stoneblade deck on...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I agree on W6, it's fine. Glad Jund is actually a thing again.

    Oko is abysmal. I think it is likely the best 3-mana planeswalker we've seen yet, even better than Teferi. It should have cost 2UG or...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    With W6 being banned in Legacy, does anyone feel it will be looked at for Modern as well? I think it's less miserable than Oko to play against, but it's a powerhouse for sure. It's actually more...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Yeah, i bombed at the 1k, lost to oko twice and jund twice. It was five rounds, i dropped after r4.

    Pioneer is gathering steam at the lgs, so i might just sell out of modern and dedicate those...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Uggh, Pioneer doesn't appeal to me, whatsoever, at all. Oko is causing problems in multiple formats, I'll see if it's too much to handle with Jeskai Stoneblade tomorrow at the 1K.

    Here is the DTB section for October:

    Burn is king ATM alongside the Urza-Oko abomination. Tron, Jund, and Shadow make up a grindy tier 2 while blue...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I agree, the mishandling of the format has really given it 'baggage'. I also agree that modern is in a great spot; I'm playing Stoneblade and it's powerful but not oppressive. Hell, it isn't even...

    Here is the dtb section on mtgtop8 for September:

    Burn and Tron doing well as most predicted, and Whirza is picking up a ton of momentum.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    That's fair. I think there could be a work-around by finding the right windows to counter them, but discard into Engineer/W6 is still pretty strong.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I meant mono-blue tribal faeries, not traditional UB faeries. Something with Scion of Oona and a strong tempo plan.

    Rough idea:

    4x Faerie Seer
    4x Faerie Miscreant
    4x Ninja of the Deep Hours...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I'm pretty sure we have enough faeries to make a mono-blue faeries deck be decent. I really like the value that is being crammed into the Adventure cards.

    I agree, burn is a natural predator to people bringing untested brews. I think it's relative position won't change too much until something solidifies into a predator against burn. As I'm certain you...

    Looks like UW Stoneblade is an early front-runner for SFM deck of choice; I've seen several 5-0 online league finishes with that setup and a lot of UW control lists re-forming their deck around it....

    What are some cards that get better without Looting/Hogaak, along with adding stoneforge mystic? I'm not talking Batterskull, etc, but rather the slower mid-range cards that fell out of favor because...

    I'm not convinced. It's an easy 4-5 slots to include, especially in a vial deck. Lots of flyers for equips. Honestly it will have a hard time with opposing SFM/Batterskull. It will either have to...
