    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    That's generous to assume, but not at all stated. Whereas they specifically talk about win rates for other cards.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Oko and Opal make sense. Lattice just seems so weird to me. Yeah "it isn't fun to be locked out of the game" but it's a 2 card, 10 mana combo (4 and 6, so not even spread out terribly much, or at...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Haven't followed the format much since Pioneer started, but turned on the modern teams stream to see what's going on.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Even then you're just vialing in a 3/3 elk. I'm done with Modern until Oko is gone, unless something happens to drastically change the format. Teferi is similarly miserable to play against. I mean, I...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I like W6 in Modern because it brought back Jund and other midrange strats that don't have to rely on blue splashes. I also didn't think that it was miserable to play against, which is really the...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I'm not burning all my bridges yet. I think it's pretty obvious Oko is a problem, maybe even Urza. How they handle it is going to be interesting, and I think we'll see something banned on Monday. If...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    That's too bad, I'm really enjoying my mono colored decks (viable for the first time ever) alongside 5c Niv Mizzet control. I turned on Modern SCG a couple times this weekend and it looks like 80%...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Yeah I kind of stopped playing Modern because I like Pioneer better. I might join again if/when Oko is banned, despite playing exclusively Oko decks recently. He's just dumb.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    For all the banning (or lack thereof) complaints for the latest B&R, the format looks relatively healthy. I've enjoyed the games I've played and felt like there are sufficient answers to the top...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Even so, Wrenn and Plague Engineer make me think the deck just isn't what you want to be doing right now. With Whirza on the uptick, Plague Engineer is going to be seeing a ton of play, and pretty...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I want to agree, but faeries has been on life support ever since Wrenn & Six got printed. It doesn't help that Bitterblossom is your own death sentence in this format with T3feri stalling, Plague...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Also, important to note that burn did really well but that may have been for two reasons. Texas is known for being very burn-centric, for whatever reason, and it preys on non-optimized decks, which...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Both of those decks are very susceptible to artifact hate. If one of those 2 is the top deck then it will take some sideboard consideration but I don't see the format being that terrible.

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    From what I've seen, mono red is still quite popular, so Collective Brutality is in a great place. Electrolyze might just be too slow, but I suppose with everyone trying to fit Stoneforge in their...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    I mean, the thread is literally titled Modern Post-Hogaak and I asked if the bans+unbans are enough to turn around the sour feelings from Hogaak Summer, there were plenty of potential avenues for...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Dang, man, sorry to bring up the obvious "Hogaak and Faithless Looting are banned, how does the format change?" topic.

    I'm curious since it's so obvious to you, what are the new best decks? Are...

    Re: Modern Post-Hogaak

    Yeah, I know the cards that can kill a 1/2. I play it in Vintage. I'm surprised that was the take away from my post, as the real format shake-up is mostly going to be no more Hogaak (which was...
