    The true test of your poker face comes when you open a hand with just lands and smiters against abzan!


    I was in this situation with my hatebears deck in a PTQ. I won the first game and in the second I took a mulligan to 6 and had 5 lands and 1 Smiter and kept it. He had turn 1 Inquistion and I got a free Smiter before my first turn :D. He was pretty angry about it and said it was ridiculous that I kept it, but I knew that it was a good hand against him (especially since 1 land was a Canopy and one a Stirring Wildwood).

    A bit off topic: Does anyone here know a good programm to record MTGO games?


    Yeah, camastia. Its pretty much the only one in town to use. for PC. Its what I use, and also comes with a quick editor. Id rather use avid, or premire if I'm doing anything really edit heavy, but its nice for a few quick additons.

    This would be a question for magic general, not modern.

    I was working on a primer for playing combo in Modern a long time ago, but never got round to finishing it. A lot of the stuff in that document is probably outdated by now with bans/unbans/new cards printed.

    Some decks I had on the list (minus the popular ones):
    Mono-green Devotion
    Restore Balance
    Elves
    7-land Belcher
    Twiddle Storm
    Blistercoil Weird + Paradise Mantle
    Puresteel Paladin
    Unexpected Results
    Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank
    Protean Hulk
    Pili-Pala + Grand Architect
    Seismic Swans
    Heartless Summoning

    Feel free to ask if you need an explanation on any of the decks.


    I was literally just clicking on this thread to reply with "Izzetmage" is the list.

    I've upped to two. Shes a great draw after an already used forger. The best evaluation I can come up with him for is to look at him as two different creatures:


    1r
    Cant be blocked
    2/1

    This is the early version of him. A version that you use after something like vial or bannerate. Later on he reads:

    1r
    Echo: r
    Draw a card, I trigger rage forger
    3/2

    This is a turn 4 or 5 top deck of her. Both are good cards at any stage, you just got to not mix up which version to play when.

    Cool. Yeah I ended up cutting vial and adding birds, and maki9ng a "Bigger list" but I ended up not liking it.


    However the experiament did teach me a few things. Shared anomosity is a pretty good fake rageforger, but swords are better. Sword of fire and ice has the best abilities for us, sword of war and peace give us the most removal dodge, sword of light and shadow is the best against junk.

    Also. Ire shaman is very... very good. I too ditched storm singers. I went up to a 21/22 mana count to add one or two swords (or domri if I cut bolts) Ire gets alot better with swords, and I think I morph it about 35% of the time.

    I was going all in on the theme. The idea of the video was to showcase landfall zoo, rather than produce a tuned list, so take that list with a grain of salt.

    I kepted geopedes for the reason above, also because it plays nice with command. The idea wasnt what goyf is, a 3 damage plus beater that doesnt die to bolt, it was a 5 damage beater that was fast. In that respect its better that goyf. Different roles.

    I never liked vinelasher. It always felt like a goyf that died to bolt too easy, and took work, and was a bad top deck.
