    Alright, Lets be clear. All these people are saying "you cant cast bolt=bad." but there not actually explaining it well.


    Bolt is a one mana versistal creature removal. In fact, its the best creature killer in the format, currently. There is no equivilent in black... sans things like go for the throat. If something along the lines of Innocent blood was in the format... we might have a different picture on our hands.


    You can now commence with the "/thread."

    For what its worth, I think I need more jund/k/rock hate in my side, so I'm thinkin' about going 3 in on blood moon, and shifting around some slots.

    I dropped wolfrun the minute I dropped Knight. With out her tutoring ability it just makes openers silly. Speaking of knight, I had a chat with somefriends about her the other day. We did a critical analysis and decided that shes just not as good in modern as we hope.

    For aggro:
    You want an aggressive creature? use Wooly thactar or Giest of St. Traft

    Want a good beater while being alright against more of the meta? Again King Oreo or Loxodon Smitter is better.

    For midrange:
    Wooly, giest and smiter are all the better option, as they generally hit just as hard. She has one cute trick depending on the deck you run her in (junk- vault of the arkangel naya- Wolfrun) but you're always tied between attacking or tutoring.

    In legacy she can grab a million more relevant answers. Maze to give her vig, while also being defencive on attacks/defence. She can get tower to reset batterskull, hugely relevant, as well as get Karais (or how ever its spelled) to deny sneak and show as well as reanimater. Shes a meta killer in legacy, shes a beater in modern. Totally different.

    Doesn't straight BG Rock have problems with Affinity?

    Most definitely. There is a BG Rock player at my LGS that is one of the best players at our LGS, especially in Modern and Legacy. This kid has 4 Creeping Corrosion, as well as something else that's slipping my mind, in his SB. We have a lot of Affinity players and all of them lament playing against him because of his SB slanting toward Affinity.

    I know for a fact that if and when he plays at a large Competitive REL tournament, he will change the SB, but he will still probably keep some number of anti-affinity cards. He wouldn't simply copy Willie Edel's list because he is very well-versed in the deck and knows what suits his play style and his weaknesses the best.

    EDIT> I believe that the other card is 3 Nature's Claim from the SB and he probably also sides Fulminator Mage since it's good against Inkmoth Nexus. I've actually seen him play against Affinity quite a bit and it's amusing to watch Affinity players slow play in fear of Slaughter Pact. That card is very good vs. Affinity in combination with the other hate cards, really making Arcbound Ravager have a much more minimal effect.


    I do the same with Zoo. I like pat cox, and I like kibler, but I'm at a point with playing zoo I can confidently say their views shouldn't be taken as the be all be all word for me. I highly respect their opinion, but I've played zoo for long and hard enough, I know what I'm talkin' about in my own rights too.

    Thanks for the artical though. As far as I knew (probably only a little more then the adverage modern player) staight rock traded a slip in reformance against aggro for a better control and midrange matchup. This will help me understand why better.

    I mean, their not wrong Twin isnt a great matchup, and pod is a bad matchup, and those are the two biggest decks. If pod were to get banned/hated, then we'd be in a better position.

    I know, we can only hope. Twin is a race against the Oops, they win button and pod is generally good against us. I have won, but it's tough. We can only hope they ban pod.


    I mean I much rather hope it gets hated out. Torpor Bird goes a ways to help, but I doubt its good enough

    So a friend of mine is ripping up a storm with naya midrange, he got 9th place in Delewares ptq last week... but he's not running Wild nacatl at all. Or Knights, or most things kibler runs. He basicly thinks that small zoo is better over all for what those cards are doing, and would rather cut ties with it. I cant tell you the exact list but I think it runs

    noble hierach
    pridemage
    huntmaster of the fells
    restoration angel
    goyf
    smiter
    wooly thoctar

    Domri
    bolt
    helix
    path

    When did the meta swing from having more jund decks than rock decks to more rock (g/b) than jund?
