I just read through Bloodyrabbits strategy for the TitanShift matchup. Ill have to test out 4x Tec Edge - as I think this is the core of how to beat TitanShift - Im just a bit concerned about how much I will miss some number of ghost quarters...
Currently im on 2x Stroke and 2x Runed Halo postboard - and if the stars align its a reasonable matchup - but sadly I have not experienced the 71% win rate as of yet - time to get out those tec edges..Further to this Im going to try out 2x Clique - looking back Ive found the games where you get Clique down is where you win rate starts heading north..
Tectonic Edge, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pretty much your better tools in the MU. I play *at least* 2 Cliques in the board, because they are THAT good. Way better than Geist or Queller against most of our bad match-ups. Actually, they really have a huge impact coming from the board, and I highly suggest playing three copies. You won't even need Halos (good magic card, but IMHO worse than other options).
This is pretty much where AV versions of this deck are at the moment, so nothing new. The problem, here, is the usual: when AV is good, it's awesome. WHen not, you're playing a Standard deck in Modern. Not saying it's not worth it, but it's very debatable.
