    Has this deck considered Molten-tail Masticore? I'm glad somebody made a blue artifact themed deck. I have this list(Tolarian Academy Reloaded) of cards on tappedout but no decklist or anything. I was headed in the right direction but hadn't looked at the list with new sets that came out since then.

    So we need that colorless hitting wasteland card to help alleviate the menace? Sounds fine to me. Eldrazi must be stopped!

    @Spooly Agree, I think it fits better in Jund where they could topdeck it and raise their DS/Goyf, give it haste and kill someone.

    More pushed black cards...I thought they were going to print good cards in other colors with this set? Black is my favorite color but seriously it feels like I'm cheating just playing it.

    Black's efficiency at controlling cards in hand and creatures on the board is getting a little ridiculous. Both of which are important aspects of the game. Especially since this game often evolves around winning with creatures and number of cards in hand (to a degree). It fits into their game plan just bit too well...

    edit: wording

    It just isn't as popular as it once was. Eldrazi & Tron are the matchups Jund players dreaded the most so some went with Jund Shadow. Now that Jund Shadow has teetered it's time to be back on Jund but perhaps a two color Rock version with ability to fight Tron somewhat. https://mtgdecks.net/Modern/b-g-midrange-decklist-by-sol-malka-692080 is worth looking at. I would honestly not feel too bad about the drop in popularity because it will rise again when it needs to. On the other hand if your meta has lots of Eldrazi & Tron it might be a good idea to try the two color version and see how it pans out. The deck is still 100% legit.

    Many times I've been tempted to unload my cards and buy into Jund but as you can see I've split my diversity into mulltiple decks(see sig) instead of one or two. I'm sure many others could own Jund cept they are missing only the money bombs (goyf, lily, catacombs, bobs)

    Interesting list here running Shriekhorn and Reduce // Rubble: 5-0 Dredge by lilianaofthevess.

    Sort of like having Rishadan Port in Modern except Sorcery speed. Does Dredge really want to use 3 mana like that on a turn to keep 3 lands tapped?

    Which would lead me to believe some colors need some help still. Every color seems only to "support black" in some way. I'd rather all colors be good on their own as well.

    Supreme Will might work ok as a 1 of in U tron. Anticipate didn't feel potent enough. Might be better to stick with Anticipate though Slant . Can't say the same for other strategies however. What will the blue version of Bontu's Last Reckoning look like? UU, Counter target spell, your lands don't untap?

    Seems fine as a 1 of in some lists. Impulse is something I have wanted for a while(didn't bother with anticipate). It won't be getting any better than that I don't think.

    4 grixis shadow in the t8 of scg Charlotte. 13 made day 2, as the most represented deck. 2nd was dredge with 5.

    The rest of the t8 is dredge, living end, 2 eldrazi tron.
    When I read this post, I feared that Grixis Shadow had totally dominated the field. But while 4 Grixis Shadow decks made top 8, only one other Grixis Shadow deck is listed in the top ~32 (a few decks are not listed for some reason). Plus, Eldrazi Tron won in the end. In the final interview, the winner mentioned that he lost only a single game to a Grixis Shadow deck all day, stating that he had felt favored against it after adjusting his sideboard.

    In addition, Jund Death's Shadow, not long ago considered to be the best deck in Modern, is completely absent from the list of decks. So the number of Death's Shadows equals the number of Thoughtknot Seers this time.


    Saying it was the best deck in Modern was a selling point. It drove huge sales to Jund players looking to stay on top. I don't read much into any articles that try to convince me of such. SCG mainly shows and talks up strategies during the entire stream to promote sales during and after events.

    And now the showcasing of Grixis is doing the same thing. Convincing all those Grixis variant players to hop on board. Although I fear all the banmania talk circulating the State of Thread might hold some back. Grixis Shadow was a little too represented this last time. But looking at the field, people weren't trying to play against it(UW Control), just play it instead.

    If they didn't want Dredge around they would have done it in long ago. I'd say the format is fine currently. No need to ban anything...

    How goes it for all you dredge players? Still doing good with it? I decided to treat myself and just got the the rest of the missing cards to play Dredge minus the ones I already had (ghast, loam, conflag, fetches, some lands, all of the SB). I was about to buy into this deck right before the GGT ban and was glad I did not pull the trigger. I look forward to dredging nonstop and watching my opponents roll their eyes Rolleyes

    Gemstone Caverns? You mean Gemstone Mine?
    no I mean cavern


    Ah ok, I didn't read your post right. Interesting though, but that colorless might mess you up more often than not

    I haven't been able to beat affinity lately. Too many creatures to deal with and they drop their hand quick. Not sure if game 1 is even winnable unless they draw poorly. Game 2, just hope you draw your sweeper asap. I have both Anger and Return in my SB and like the split. I bring them both in when I need a sweeper. I played last night and could not draw the third land otherwise I would have wiped his board with Return. After the match I showed him a Staticaster and Kozilek's Return sitting in my hand the whole time and he cringed. Rise//Fall has been pretty sweet and been liking it thus far. It works decently in this deck I think. I wait to use it knowing they are banking some cards in hand while I have to deal with their boardstate.

    Not sure what to sideboard out in that matchup other than Street Wraith, IoK and some Thoughtseizes.
