May 29, 2016Worldbreaker, Ulamog, and even Thought Knot were very nice additions from the BFZ block, but the loss of Eye still has a huge impact on our long-game. I personally prefer Sanctum as the card that attempts to fill the Eye slot, but the fact that there isn't a general consensus on which card is best says a bit on the gaping hole Eye left in our long-term game.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
All that being said, yes, the deck is still certainly viable, and has recent results at Grand Prix to back that up.

Apr 29, 2016Personally, I would play a full playset of map instead of sylvan scrying. Map gets under turn 2 counters and doesn't require colored mana.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Otherwise, the list looks pretty solid. It has the traditional Gr core, and since the Eye ban, lots of people have been experimenting with different flex cards.
Apr 18, 2016With StarcityGames States coming up next weekend I'd like to share my decklist to get some discussion going about the current state of Tron. First, I'd like to say that I've tried the Mono Green Eldrazi Tron on MTGO. Its a good deck, and I think most its Midrange/Control/Combo matchups are better than the stock Tron build, but I think its worst matchups are even worse. I expect a fair amount of Burn and Infect in my state, so I'm bringing this list:Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Not a ton of surprises here. The Oblivion Stone count is lower than normal in favor of World Breaker. I may go back to a 3/2 split for Sunday.
And this is my sideboard
DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards 2 Pithing Needle
3 Nature's Claim
3 Relic of Progenitus
1 Cavern of Souls
3 Jaddi Offshoot
1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn
Jaddi Offshoot has been my SB tech vs Burn/Aggro. It comes down turn 1 and pings lifegain instead of getting it all in one shot and leaving yourself open to a Skullcrack effect. Worst case scenario, they bolt it or you chump block a 3 power+ creature and you effectively gained 3 life. Best case, it gains you you a life each turn, and keeps a 2 power creature at bay every turn, "gaining" you anywhere from 5-10 life as long as the game goes on. Also great in multiples!
Apr 2, 2016I've been testing Sanctum of Ugin on MTGO for the (likely) ban of Eye. Its not awful, but you already need to have a 7+ drop in hand and cast it to get the trigger off of it. It does give you that inevitability of finding Emrakul if you want it though.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Still, I'm not sure its something I'll ultimately end up using.
Mar 19, 2016For the faults that Puca has, it really is a nice way to trade into cards and decks.Posted in: Market Street Café
I've been on Puca for almost a year now, and have turned various Modern/Multi-Player staples I've had into a half dozen Modern decks (Including Tron and Burn from scratch) as well as another half dozen or so budgetish multiplayer decks.
That being said, I do think long-term that inflation on the site is a real thing, given how freely the mods give out points. I've been keeping my Pucapoints low (Under 1,000) unless there are specific cards I'm trying to get for a deck.
