Oct 20, 2017I have a slightly different GB Zombies deck that has been winning vs a few tier 1 decks. There is of course some budget options such as no Verdant Catacombs for now.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)

Ideally you want to see a leyline but it isn't required. Bounce their threats and lands to set them back. Get ahead when you can resolve a vision. Screw their mana by cutting them off certain colors and tap the threats that get through. Steal theirs to fight back. Remove problem permanents with reality acid and clock them with a flying chimera.
Riptide Chimera + Reality Acid is the combo that starts wasting their permanents away. If you don't see a chimera, you can bounce your acid multiple ways using Echoing Truth, Void Snare, Cryptic Command and Boomerang.
Turn 1 you can drop a Leyline, an island and instant cast a sea's claim on their EOT to start color screwing them. You can also flash suspend Ancestral Vision for funsies.
Always resolve your AV's first if you have a Reality Acid in play, you might draw a bounce spell to return it to your hand before its last vanishing counter is removed.

Oct 20, 2017Interesting approach LeDrazi, never thought of including Angler. And what's nice is Golgari Thug can let you draw him if he gets milled. Recently, I had a horrible night for Dredge (0-3-1), lost to Fish, ETron and Abzan. The deck either fizzled to dredge anything relevant or failed to dredge a key 4 of card when I needed it to win.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Oct 12, 2017The question I asked myself was, "Why play Grixis Control when I can play Grixis Death Shadow?" And that gave me my answer. I don't think the deck is in a good spot. This deck is always fighting an uphill battle. UWr Control has better tools for controlling and staying in the game. I think Spell Queller filled the gap of counter + clock in one card. Grixis has nothing close to that. And Gideon(s) are all fantastic control Planeswalkers IMO.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Can't say I didn't think about trying this deck again though just as a refresh. I want to try a different build but not sure if it's any better then the current. It got zero feedback so far.
Grixis Counter Drake
Oct 6, 2017Been experimenting with a different take on Grixis Control. Again, this list is just concept, no actual games have been played yet. The deck does have obvious flaws being even more soft to grave hate in a way. I wanted to try running a different suite of creatures and do things a little differently. No Serum Visions, only Opt and a bunch of business spells.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Grixis Counter Drake
Aug 1, 2017AV is only good turn 1, after that you might as well chuck it as fodder or use in conjunction with As Foretold. Like others here, the conclusion they have come to is play cards that give you immediate impact. I used to play Grixis Control and AV was terrible except turn 1 suspend. You cannot wait 4 turns to draw 3 in this format unless you have something down that lets you survive long enough. Think twice, Thought Scour, Azorius Charm, heck even Quicken are better options at this point. I think Jace, AOT is underplayed too.Posted in: Tier 1 (Modern)
Jul 25, 2017^ Agreed, but I do like the easier mana cost on Obstructionist (2U), plus the cycling is uncounterable. It doesn't come up a lot but UU can be a hindrance.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Merfolk was my first modern deck and since my main deck (Grixis Shadow) is being hated and despised a lot I've taken a small break to come back to the fish army. It does feel great to drop sea's on greedy manabases as of late.
