    Re: Modern Post-MM2

    I think it could potentially be abusable in Dredge, but a friend actually mentioned it could be much better in modern UR Storm. That deck already plays 7-8 creatures to feed combo turns so it dying...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Yeah, I was just keeping in the confines of deck contruction with a reasonable mana base in mind, not actual gameplay. Urza's Legacy could very well be much better than Factory, but without results...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Right, so you have to give up Factory. As much as I love Factory, I agree completely. You can't have both, not in a 2-color list. I might try some amount in mono-blue, simply because I have more...

    Re: [Deck] Affinity

    I meant, as I stated, like the 'old days' of Frogmite/Myr Enforcer/Ornithopter, not the current iteration of Affinity which most of us understand to be Steel Stompy. Thanks for the Reverse Engineer...

    Every couple of years something happens in Modern to get my attention. The last time it was the unbanning of Stoneforge Mystic. This time it's the printing of Counterspell into Modern, along with the...

    Wait, did you mention Aether Spellbomb? I like where you're at. I have always loved the spellbombs!

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    It pushes the limits to how many colorless lands you play. I play mono-blue Dreadstill and it still feels like a 2-color deck because of Wasteland/Factory. I agree this is a new tool for it, but...

    I've been trying to brainstorm a more traditional Affinity list lately as well, something explosive like the 'old days', and then have some sort of card advantage engine to recoup. Standstill and...

    I think so. Working on moving it now.
  10. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    So these are the playables from the set, from what I can see:

    Witherbloom Command
    Witherbloom Apprentice
    Clever Lumimancer
    Solve the Equation
    Sedgemoor Witch
    Conspiracy Theorist
    Fracture...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Boshnroll just did a stream on a delver-less Shadow deck that focused on Stifle and interaction. It didn't fare very well, beating Goblins and Maverick pretty handily but losing hard to Moon Stompy...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    So the real question is: does Witherbloom Command make LoamPox a better deck? That would have to be explored, but I don't think a modal disruption spell is what that deck really needed (just my...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think the tension comes when you have strictly better ways of abusing Loam. I could see Command replacing Loam in a BG pox deck (the amount of times you actually Loam in LoamPox is a lot lower than...

    Re: Legacy Eggs

    I think Cosmic Intervention is slightly weaker than Faith's Reward, simply because coming back at EOT is definitely worse than immediately. I like that you can prepay for it, making setup turns...

    Re: Minotaurs

    You're in the modern section, I think it's probably a good idea to try and find the Minotaurs thread for Legacy. If there isn't one currently it's a good idea to start one.

    EDIT: Found it, here...
  18. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    Why Mox Diamond when you can just play Lotus Petal? Diamond/Loam takes up slots that probably should be disruption, dig, or just alternative threats.
  19. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    That looks pretty good! The 7 Nic Fit stuffs that we include will probably include silver bullet cards like Reclamation Sage, Scavenging Ooze, Sylvan Safekeeper, and Eternal Witness. That still...
  20. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    I hope so...but honestly, almost every set has a 'this might be ok in nic fit' kind of card. This time I think it will be the real deal though, simply because of Witherbloom Apprentice + Chain of...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    How is this better than Bitterblossom? BB doesn't die to Bolt, is much harder to remove as an enchantment, costs 1 mana less, provides evasion, and requires no further investment.

    Re: 3 cmc creature comboes

    If that's the case, I think the correct play is double Boggart Ram-Gang. Vroom vroom!

    Re: 3 cmc creature comboes

    It sounds very similar to the old Birthing Pod deck from Modern, which unfortunately requires 3 cards to make it happen (Viscera Seer, Melira, and Murdurous Redcap.)

    So if I'm reading this...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Ehh, I don't like getting under people without pressure, it just seems to give people time to grind back into the game. I would play a different deck before I cut a land and Delvers.

    Is anyone messing around with Stifle in their Shadow build? I am hesitant to include it because it tends to be good in newer metagames and then fade away as it gets closer to solved. I couldn't even...
