If I had Thoughtseize or the 4th Nahiri I'd run them for sure. Local stores were sold out of Gurmag Angler and the only Delve creature I have is Tombstalker, but without Liliana I'm lacking in ways to fill the grave to make use of Delve.
As for taking out Illness I'm thinking putting in the 4th Path and Kataki, War's Wage or going double Kataki.

Aug 19, 2017I didn't like it when I proxied it because of hitting 3 and 4 cost cards almost every time. Maybe its just my personal experience but I hated it.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Just found out there's going to be a Modern tournament this weekend with a foil Misty Rainforest for 1st place, I want to go in with the best chance I have. This is what I took to FNM, what should I switch to maximize my chances? I don't have access to Liliana so that's out of the question.
I definitely want to take out Illness In The Ranks and switch out Bontu's Last Reckoning for Wrath of God, beyond that I don't know what to put in. It's in a store I haven't played at before, so I'm going in blind as for what kind of decks to expect.
Aug 12, 2017Illness is a local meta choice, 3 different people play some form of token deck so it's a house against them. I don't own Fulminator or have the funds to get them. I'd probably rather play Blood Moon than Fulminator against Tron to be honest, can easily adjust my manabase to accommodate Blood Moon.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Aug 12, 2017Another 2-2 FNM...Played against Taking Turns 2-0, Eldrazi Tron 0-2 (I sincerely hate that ******* deck and its stupid turn 3 natural Tron bull*****), Burn 2-1, Unburial Gifts 0-2.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Differences in what I ran compared to my list above was removing 1 Grim Lavamancer and 1 Lingering Souls for 1 Big Game Hunter and 1 Lightning Bolt. Thinking of cutting BGH, 1 Paladin, and 1 Crusader for 2 Lighting Bolt and 1 Lightning Helix
Aug 10, 2017This week I just want to do better than 2-2. Trying new list that should deal with the local players better and hope to dodge the Eldrazi Tron player.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 24, 2017This is the list I ran at FNM. Right as FNM was starting I couldn't find my last Path To Exile so I threw in the first card I found to hit 60, hence the Funeral Charm. Canyon Slough has been disappointing me as of late, thinking about swapping them out for a Shambling Vents and a Needle Spires.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 21, 2017Went 2-2 with Dragon Mardu tonight. I don't know if my deck is built bad or if I just had miserable luck because multiple games I got stuck on 1-2 lands or my opponents would get the nuts hand *cough*Tron*cough* and I just die. Thunderbreak is pulling his weight when he lands on the field, Kolaghan and Dragonmaster had their moments in games to secure victories too.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Won against Grixis Death's Shadow 2-0, BW Tokens 2-1
Lost against EdraziTron 0-2 and Taking Turns 0-2
Doesn't feel like I can do anything when they get natural turn 3 Tron and/or I get stuck on 1-2 lands and no other lands are coming up for 10 turns.
Jul 16, 2017I'm going to keep testing my Dragon build, switching up the lineup and dragons to be tested. I've decided to cut Butcher and Emrakul entirely, still debating whether I want to keep in Nahiri or cut her for Trials Gideon. I recently got a 3rd Nahiri, thinking if I cut something to fit her in it'll probably be Crackling Doom.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 15, 2017I don't feel like it'd be impactful enough outside of giving it to them via Harmless Offering. It's not great when we're in topdeck mode because it puts us on a 3 turn clock to remove it from the field or stick a Gideon and hope he lives through our next upkeep, it has to compete with Nahiri, Butcher, Gideon Ally, Chandra Torch, Thunderbreak (for me), and Ajani Vengeant for the 4 mana slot, and if you do go the Harmless Offering route you have to find a way to make sure it isn't countered, maybe with Boseiju, Who Shelters All.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 15, 2017Maybe Sword of Light and Shadow? They worked together well when I was running Swords. Have you tried Goblin Assault if you're aiming to spam goblins for a super powered Rabblemaster?Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
I'm pretty high on Thunderbreak Regent lately, thinking of bumping up to 3-4 and testing out 2 Dragonmaster Outcast and 1 Dragonlord Kolaghan for more Dragons.
Jul 7, 2017The Bogle player runs 4 maindecked copies of Leyline of Sanctity, Crackling Doom gets around Leyline while Blessed Alliance doesn't. Mardu Control and another player who switches between five different decks also run 3-4 copies between main and side. Used to run Blessed until that many Leylines showed up.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 7, 2017Made the decision to change out Tombstalker and Ajani Vengeant for Ghost Quarter and Night's Whisper. Could use some feedback on my sidedeck if anyone's willing to give it a look. Most frequently seen decks are Infect, Bogles, Grixis Death's Shadow, Living End, and Mardu Control. I'm still running the heavy flying Midrange build from last page.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
Jul 6, 2017Shriez posted a message on Why did you pic your Mtgsalvation profile picture?Mine is the titular character from "Jack of All Trades", starring Bruce Campbell. Also I really like the intro song, its catchy.Posted in: Talk and Entertainment
Jun 24, 20172-2 overall result tonight. Tombstalker was fun but it's not good enough with my list. Ajani is going to get axed for a Night's Whisper most likely while Tombstalker is probably going to be a land of some kind.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
He comboed the turn before I could Slaughter Games his Lightning Storm, lame.
Squadron Hawk and Tombstalker were the MVP's this match, forced out the buff spells by going for kills on my turn.
Grixis Death's Shadow
Honestly this feels like the best matchup for me, Rest In Peace and Mirran Crusader put in work.
I had the most abysmal luck this match, didn't see any creatures in any games except for Squadron Hawk, 1 Thunderbreak Regent, and an Emrakul thanks to Nahiri. No Lingering Souls, no Butcher, no Nahiri post game 1, nothing.
Jun 22, 2017No Emrakul, The Aeons Torn to go with Nahiri? Personally I'd cut a Liliana for Emrakul if only to have a secondary win condition besides Resto-Kiki loop. Would love to see how it performs, give us a report on your matches?Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
This is the Flying Midrange list I'm taking tomorrow, I'll write up how it does each round:

Feb 4, 2014My favorite card out of every card in this game would have to be Thundermare. It may not be among the best or the strongest cards, but it was the first card I ever pulled from a booster pack of Portal all the way back in 1998. I still have that same Thundermare to this day.Posted in: Announcements
