    Re: Jeskai Stoneblade

    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: UW Enduring Ideal

    After taking a bit of a break from this deck, I felt compelled to come back and give it a try in the post-Hogaak/Modern Horizons world. Modern Horizons brought two pretty significant additions that I...

    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...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    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...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    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...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    As kombatkiwi pointed suggested, this was a typo. I did used to play some filter lands an a Sacred Foundry to enable the hardcast of Form of the Dragon, but it came up less frequently than just...

    Re: UR Wizards

    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...

    1 Heliod, God of the Sun
    SPELLS
    4 Lotus Bloom

    3 Porphyry Nodes
    1 Greater Auramancy

    Re: Modern Dragons

    This list seems interesting to me. I'm assessing the merits of the inclusion of black versus staying mono red. Skred replaces Fatal Push, Blood Moon replaces the hand disruption, Abrade can stand in...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    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...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    To get a bit specific, I'm looking to figure out how to best approach the Bogles matchup, specifically their use of Gaddock Teeg out of the board. Porphyry Nodes is kind of MVP against Bogles, but it...

    I'm not a fan of Wheel of Sun and Moon as an anti-graveyard measure against control decks, specifically the Snapcaster decks. The games tend to grind really long and I just don't want them to be able...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    Thanks, kombatkiwi; I appreciate your input. History of Benalia was on my radar, but I felt like it belonged in the sideboard and I really only wanted it if I could play 3-4 copies. I decided...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I've been revisiting Enduring Ideal and have been liking my updated list, but there are some points I'd like to address. Let's start with the list:

    Re: Need help with building a new deck

    The combination of Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker is pretty terrible unless all of your lands can tap for R and G. I'd suggest Boggart Ram-Gang in their place. It doesn't deal as much damage up...

    Re: MUD in modern

    I too have tried on many occasions to port MUD into Modern. The issue I always found was that the deck existed in this sort of limbo between Tron and Affinity. If you keep the deck colorless, it...

    Re: [DECK] Jeskai Delver

    I think Verdict might be a bit of stretch with only 18 land and it's the type of card that, when you need it, you can't afford to wait for it. I also think a full range sweeper might hamper your own...

    Re: [DECK] Jeskai Delver

    While it doesn't have synergy with Delver, I find Engineered Explosives to be the best sweeper against Merfolk. EE on 2 hits the majority of their threats and blows up any Spreading Seas that might...

    Re: UW Enduring Ideal

    I agree with that statement, but keep in mind that if you do end up running Porphyry Nodes, you probably don't want either. The Enduring Ideal deck really thinks about winning as an afterthought. The...

    I've been playing an Enduring Ideal list on and off for a bit and have the following opinions based on that experience:

    Ghostly Prison is great. So many of the decks in Modern are winning by...
  21. Re: Field of Ruin vs Tectonic Edge - Mono White D&T

    I'm not a fan of Field of Ruin in DNT, but I also don't play Tec Edge. I just like Ghost Quarter in mono white. I do think that Field of Ruin will be pretty solid in the G/W Valuetown decks though,...

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    This does seem valid. GSZ also helps in matchups against Chalice of the Void decks, so I'll definitely be looking to up my count. Thank you for the insight.

    I agree with what Phoenix Ignition has posted, but have some additional thoughts.

    First and foremost, I don't really see the reason to include White in the deck. If you were going the Smallpox...
