    hmmm... I think I don't like keeping open 3 mana. I usually tap out the first few turns.

    On the phone now, but from memory 2 Blood Moon, 2 Bolt, 2 destructive revelry, 3 ancient grudge, 3 tormod's crypt, 1 molten rain and 2 feed the clan. Of those I side in Feed the Clan the least.
    I am in tge train now and was just thinking for a better sideboard vs storm. Ad nauseam matchup also isn't fantastic, but is a lot less common.

    @pizzap at 33:40 That game why didnt you discard the Adept to Neonate - you conceded after anyways, but you still had a bolt left in your deck.
    ??? I actually did, and even mentioned the Lightning Bolt, but I drew another Flameblade. Perhaps you skipped through it. Thanks for the feedback anyway!

    I misremembered they could deal 20 but I guess it is less. I they should have hiveminded for a t1 win.

    win on T2 (albeit in magical Christmas land) and grindy as heck. The ban might have been hasty, but I don't think anyone could successfully argue it wasn't deserved.
    T2 was not magical Christmas. Here I lost on T1 on the draw.

    ^that deck is a bit more "all in" and graveyard sensitive than mine. I don't like the Cathartic Reunion though.

    After 4 5-0s in the Friendly League I just went now also 5-0 in the Competitive League, so there is a chance it gets posted as well. With 82-23 in the Friendly Leagues and 13-7 in the Competitve Leagues there is nothing left to say about it as I don't think I will change this deck anytime soon.


    Pizzap I really need more help when to use Goblin lore and Burning Inquiry? What are you doing turns 1 and 2 if you dont have the nuts opening hand?
    Lore has been really tricky for me. In fact in one game alone the three Random discard were super painful all three times. i lost that game, each time i cast it i was thinking Cathartic reunion would be better. In fact for two mana i would rather draw three then discard three as long as i could choose.
    If it contains a Flameblade Adept and/or some loot effect I go with it. If it looks slow and has no loot possibilities, I mull. See also in the video. Kept a mediocre hand at 33:40 (L), 52:25 (W), 1:12:25 (W), 1:23:20 (L, was preventable) game after that also L, and at 1:51:00 (W) (very sad game).
    I am thinking more and more I don't like Inquiry. Still I don't know a good replacement for it. I am still 100% behind Goblin Lore.

    Alright, I streamed again 7 League matches featuring Merfolk*, RG Scapeshift, Eldrazi Tron, Eldrazi D&T, Storm, Eldrazi D&T and Eldrazi D&T. This time I could save the stream, enjoy! https://www.twitch.tv/videos/181484970


    Merfolk (W), RG Scapeshift (W), Eldrazi Tron (W), Eldrazi D&T (W), Storm (L), Eldrazi D&T (W) and Eldrazi D&T (W)

    *I found out about the Adept, it was vialed in, so no card revealed.


    EDIT: I might as well repost my deck

    Pretty sweet Death's Shadow + Hollow One and Vengevine deck posted on MTGO Modern Challenge today with the Burning Inquiry and Call to the Netherworld. What does everyone think about it?
    You might as well post a link.

    I played against a similar deck, but it is quite a lot slower than the Gruul version. In exchanche I think it has more grinding potential than Gruul. I saw such decks before. I am not a huge fan of Death's Shadow in this deck without the option to trample through or take out potential chump blockers. There is a chance you lose from decks such as Storm just because you couldn't deliver the 20 damage in time. I am totally on board of Flameblade Adept and Burning Inquiry of course Smile .


    Meanwhile I didn't change my 75. After 85 Friendly League matches (65-20) I took it to the competitive Leagues now and I am 5-3 thus far. To be continued...

    Pizzap, do you have a link to your twitch account? I'd love to see some more games with the deck being played.
    It's here, but I don't have a streaming schedule and apparently the streams weren't recorded.

    Pizzap, I'm really noticing that cast BI, or G.Lore are really cruical. I feel like BI is a great card T1 not so good later

    Yes. I think that Goblin Lore is the better one of the two. I hate to topdeck a Burning Inquiry, but it is OK to topdeck Goblin Lore. Usually I side out BI as I don't like to discard my sideboard cards and it often helps my opponent. Sometimes I keep BI, but only against Affinity, Burn or other fast decks as Lore would durlde too much.


    Just streamed the deck again for 2 Friendly Leagues and went 3-2 and 5-0 Smile . The deck is totally ready for the Competitive Leagues, but I like to chill a bit and don't worry about entry fees and such. 57-18 is now the total score after 75 matches.

    Hey everyone!! I ended up 2-3 in the tournament, but had awful draws a couple games, and only made 1 mistake. Here's the video, if they interest you!!

    M1G1, I think Goblin Guide is made to attack. Just play it on the play. M1G2, really again, looting will be fine t2, now you actually end up with an uncastable Hollow One. Why no Bolt on Dark Confidant? They win the game with that.
    M2G1, at 52:09, play 2x BTE, get Vengevine then Battle Rage. Opponent will be at 8 life and seriously behind. Now you also won, but it could have been faster. M2G3, 1:16:40, I would shock myself and Loot right there. Maybe you get Hollow One and win instantly.
    M4G2, I really think you should side in Grudges and Destructive Revelry against Ad Nauseam. Especially Revelry for their Phyrexian Unlife.

    A League ago I flunked against a total brew and in this League my only loss was from the FREAKING MIRROR. Well... not exactly mirror, it was the SuperVengevine deck (Burning-Tree Emissary + Reckless Bushwhacker) that had an insane draw and won on turn 2.
    My opponent wrote a piece about their Vengevine deck, which has some interesting info.

    By the way, I am still running my list from last page except I replaced in the sideboard 3x Essence Warden for 2x Feed the Clan, 1x Molten Rain. After 13 Leagues I am now at 49-16 in matches, 75% win rate. I streamed the deck on Twitch this Monday and I am considering to stream again in 2 hours.

    Is it just big effects? Because I don't think Entreat the Angels and Wildfire have anything else in common than that. If so, you might like Perilous Vault and Planar Cleansing.

    No changes. Modern is quite balanced right now. Keep the unbans for when you need it.

    You havent tweaked your 75 since the posts above right Pizzap?
    No tweaks since then. Still I wonder about the correct numbers of cards, but as this went fine the last 5 (Friendly) Leagues I had no incentive to make changes.


    EDIT: I am now in my 9th League (33-9 so far) and I consider now to replace 3x Essence Warden from the sideboard. As is there 1) isn't enough Burn to justify so much lifegain, 2) my mana base make it hurt to play it, 3) it doesn't make enough impact and 4) you can beat Burn without sideboarding. Essence Warden was a relic from my previous Dredgevine versions where the deck supported it and the meta required it, but I guess I can change it now.
