    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think there is a place for DD in a pox-ish setup...but it's likely better to go the Reanimator Depths route if you want mono-black. You can endlessly tweak the main/side to suit your playstyle and...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Maybe it's time to re-evaluate Delver of Secrets? That allows for lurrus, and gives another t1 play that allows untapped mana for Counterspell. The curve makes more sense, and Counterspell is a...

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    That's fair. Now I need to figure out how to build Esper around it...if I can't have Gurmag or Geist, maybe Delver?

    I'd put money on that one and give you 2-to-1 odds.

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    I missed the enchantment-in-the-graveyard detail, so that's probably a good call, not just for Traverse but bigger Goyfs. I missed the Angler/Lurrus interplay...I forget that the mana value is...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    You are alone in this sentiment, I think. For myself, I will not operate under the assumption that I need to build my decks with Hymn to Tourach and Counterbalance in mind. That just isn't reality. I...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    That's ridiculous; you're the only person that I've ever read about Hymn being a ban-worthy card. The most protected card by bans is Brainstorm, I don't think there is a reasonable debate about it,...

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    I like it, and Jund seems to be the best Shadow shell currently in Modern. I think you need a minimum of 2 Dismember though, not only to increase life loss (you aren't playing Street Wraiths) but to...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    I truly forgot Orzhov Charm was an instant, honestly. I can understand that point now, as having 2 untapped lands can represent both Counterspell or Orzhov Charm. OC if they don't cast anything...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Those are fair points, thanks. I think the apples to apples comparison for Dismember is Path to Exile though, not Unearth. Unearth would only ever be a value card provide inevitability. It returns...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    People pay him to play their decklists, you could argue because they like to explore fun, even if bad, deck ideas. He's very honest about how good/bad the deck performs as well; he gives it a small...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think the biggest tension with Pox + Depths is Smallpox. I would say that is the card that needs to go to incorporate Hexmage/Depths. Otherwise the deck works as a mono-black control deck with a...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    I think overall Unearth fits the deck better than Orzhov Charm, simply due to a cheaper casting cost. Unearth gives value to Snapcaster as well, especially given that the deck has dropped Serum...

    I'm looking at trying to put together an aggressive Esper Shadow build, now that we have access to Counterspell. The tier 1 decks are very aggressive with threats that can easily get outside of...

    I am really hoping for the 'less drastic' part of your note being correct. New fun stuff? Awesome! Format warping broken shit? Please, no.

    What's really interesting is that Modern has become a...

    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...

    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: 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...
