    Will you splash for at first or will you switch completely for or even ?

    There could be room for bant with the new basic fetch land. Testing will tell. I might start with a uw list and go from there myself

    I will stick to for now. There already are a few cards I want to test here (Bastion, On Thin Ice...).

    Sadly I won't get all the cards I wanted to test for tomorrow (Legacy Night). I'll just play a version I've been tunning a bit for my local meta.

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    The majority of this deck is Modern legal. The main thing not Modern legal were the win conditions but Marit Lage's Slumber changes that.

    Scrying Sheets is an amazing card draw engine (even better now that it can grab removal (On thin Ice) and win conditions (Marit Lage's Slumber) and modern is slower and more combat oriented than legacy so this deck would actually be more viable there I think.

    If you were to port a UW version to modern, how would you go about it?

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    For modern, I'm thinking that something like this could work...

    Modern Quinn

    14 Snow-Covered Plains
    4 Scrying Sheets
    2 Prismatic Vista
    1 Flooded Strand
    1 Celestial Colonnade
    1 Snow-Covered Island

    4 Path to Exile
    4 On Thin Ice
    3 Wrath of God
    3 Ensnaring Bridge
    2 Runed Halo
    2 Detention Sphere
    1 Oblivion Ring
    1 Cast Out
    1 Supreme Verdict

    4 Arcum's Astrolabe
    2 Rest in Peace
    2 Sorcerous Spyglass
    2 Pulse of the Fields
    2 Relic of Progenitus

    2 Marit Lage's Slumber
    2 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria

    Sideboard:
    4 Leyline of Sanctity
    3 Surgical Extraction
    2 Rest in Peace
    2 Ethersworm Canonist
    2 Supreme Verdict
    2 Pithing Needle



    A very light blue splash like above is probably the correct route to take in Legacy as well.

    The above list plays 29 Snow permanents. This allow you to use Scrying Sheets blind at the end of your opponent's turn and with 29 snow permanents, Marit Lage's Slumber pretty consistently wins you the game.

    Another possibility is to go with Karn the Great Creator maindeck and a utility 1 of artifact sideboard. This would allow the deck to stay monowhite even and lean on Mycosynth Lattice as a primary win condition.

    I haven't been playing Modern in a while, but this sounds about right.

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    I picked up the new snow cards I need but don't have prismatic vista yet so going to try UW one of the next couple weeks in legacy. Then bant eventually. Thoughts? I'm concerned about the U planeswalker deck matchups...

    Edit: UWb for dead of winter might be better than uwg?

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    I think is worth splashing for dead of winter solely because we can't play Humility.
    I also think Karn is suspect.

    I'm torn on karn but you're likely right. He's innocent btw.

    I went 1-2-1 tonight but the deck felt sweet. I cut one swords/veto for the second energy field/4th slumber then put in two flooded strands. My sb was a mess but put two counters there which I'll keep.

    I will try as well. Quite similar to yours actually.

    I will post a list as soon as I can, although I'm still struggling with the Sideboard.
