    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    No, it's just the ban mindset WotC started rolling whenever an artifact deck started looking good. I'll admit, I was behind the bans stopping Krark-Clan Ironworks and Eggs (second sunrise version)...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I hate these decks, but they were inconsistent enough before that they weren't really worth the bad feelings that a ban would have brought from players, "LOL modern gets bans on decks that don't even...

    Whoops, Liliana actually isn't in that list anymore for that exact reason. I accidentally had 61 cards there.

    I tried out Birds instead of Nobles and was underwhelmed. Acceleration is good but the...

    Re: Jeskai Stoneblade

    That's fair, although in testing last night I found that pretty much 100% of the time you want Batterskull right away from SFM trigger and don't need an equip target with it. Late game you'll likely...

    How about Monastery Mentor? Seems like it'd do well in here without even having to build around it.

    Yes, especially since you really want white now on turn 2. I'm going to actually try taking out green at a friend's request since he's very against 4 color. I will miss Ice-fang to death, but there's...

    So it turns out Stoneforge Mystic is literally the best possible card that they could have printed(unbanned) for the deck. A good threat that generates value the turn it comes in while being an...

    Yeah, it was. At the GP this weekend it was 13% of day 1 decks (the next closest being 8% mono-red, the deck most likely to beat it), which progressed into 22% of the day 2 decks, and then 5/8 of the...

    Re: Jeskai Stoneblade

    I just don't see SFM getting unbanned, despite my love for the card in older formats I think it'd be bad for Modern. Kind of like Deathrite Shaman.

    Reasoning:
    1. It warps the format around it....
