    Say I'm Running an Ally deck with a Kabira evangel out. Someone casts fatal push targeting it. I CoCo, Hit at least one Ally, call Pro Black. The Kibira Evangel still dies due to it already being cast and it being targeted before it had pro black, correct?

    As much as I hate to say it, I don't think so. I'd love love LOVE for this tribe to be at least T2 but nothing in this set seems to be pushing it that way. Harsh Mentor seems like it'll be a nice SB but that's about it.

    Sorry! basically i'm drawing too few. on average i'm drawing about 1 land and a mox that's not turned on if I get the mox at all.



    That's my deck. not sure what I should change really but it seems like i'm always stuck on either one land and my wackers.

    So, i'm waffling a little here. I love goblins but I hate how random getting the mana for GoBots is. I like the mana for Atarka goblins but it just seems so slow comparied and i'm not sure goblins has the kind of staying power. I'm going to assume I can't just take out the 4 mox opals for 4 lands and still have gobots work like it should or make sure the moxes are online more often.

    So, i'm really liking GoBots but not having bolt or something to do some spot removal really feels wrong to me. What's ya'lls opinion on trying to add bolt?

    I took GoBots to states in MO yesterday and while I went 3-2 drop because I was super tired (haven't played MTG in about 2 or 3 months and it was an hour and a half drive one way). I REALLY enjoyed it took down g/b Tron, Bant Eldrazi, and a fully foiled Grixis Delver (game two of the delver was by far my favorite game). Lost to Norn Sisters and Abzan CoCo. Couldn't seem to do much against sisters and I'm pretty sure I lost due to a play mistake against abzan but all in all it was super fun. Having said all of that though, I think not having bolt or G.G. really screwed me over so i think i'm going to do a "12 whack" of sorts. Go more on goblins but keep in the Pest and give that a shot. All in all I love this deck!

    Losing Atarka's command is what has me on the fence. Well, that and I'm not just HUGE on Ornithopter. But between Hope of Ghiapur and Toolcraft I really think its worth a shot to try.

    This past weekend I played at an IQ in Memphis. I recently got a set of goyfs so I sleeved up big zoo and I had a blast playing it. I dodged all 4 Jund decks and played against jeski, blue tron, and ban eldrazi. Double drew, won vs deaths shadow (thank you worship) and lost vs ban eldrazi 1-2. All in all I loved it. I think I only lost to bant because of me not having the right fetches and playing with basic mountains instead. But still, I was building Jund because it's the best deck but I might stick with zoo because I had a lot of fun

    So, I haven't really looked at this deck since Oath was released since we didn't really get too much from that set. Any good ideas come out since then? I'm thinking of picking it back up as Allies have always been my pet tribal deck when they were originally in standard. Also, what kind of Side board is everyone looking at at the moment?

    I'm looking at putting this together because I love the flavor of Eldrazi and since it's a bit more balanced I figure it could be fun. My only question is how does this fair with the Nahiri decks going around? It seems my meta has at least two (but i'm sure more) that I had to play against last FNM.

    I bought into the Eldrazi deck early and I'll be honest, I'm not really enjoying where its going. Thinking of switching over to this as I love Red/black/white and I love tokens. How's the match up vs things like burn, grixis control, and the new Eldrazi deck? I see in the opening post that it mentions Plains walkers but I see nothing about the newest Sorin, is he just not worth it?

    Maybe I am playing this wrong, but my god it felt awful at FNM. Got my ass kicked by Tooth and Nail and Mill for Christ sakes. Barely beat Elves and he misplayed badly. Should have been 0-3.

    This deck, at least when I pilot the BW version, seems like it loses hard to random tier 3 decks. Did not enjoy.


    I'm right there with you, I was running BR and my night went like this:
    I ran into abnzan got mana screwed by one for too long and lost, Melera company and again got mana screwed, Tron got turn 3 karn on me twice, and 8rack between the Liliys and hand discard I had nothing to do.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, 25 lands, 15 creatures, 6 relics, 4 Iok, 2 thoughtseize and a few kill/burn spells. That being said, I'm still goning to stick with it, maybe switch over to blue for a little bit of dig, and a few more things.

    I've been having a hard time picking a deck and now that I've seen this deck I want to run it too. How does this deck deal with burn or aggro? seem like a horrible match up in most color combos and that makes up a good chunk of my local meta. I like the idea of B/g but no one seems to be giving it a shot, any real reason why?

    I'll admit, I don't like decks without SOME sort of spells. Either a Path or a D.command would make me feel a lot better but I'm no sure where I'd put them in. That being said, it was only my first time playing it.

    For now, I've taken out one Lantern scout and one kor bladewhirl for 2 D.Commands, Hopefully it'll work like I want it to. As far as side board goes,

    Had a random modern fire off today at the shop that just opened here in town and I took the list I just posted. I fought a mill deck and went 2-0, Tron and went 0-2, and twin and went 2-1. ended up getting second. Main issues with the Tron matches were he either got a turn 3 tron or I got land screwed. With Twin, I didn't see the combo at all. He had it last game but didn't have the mana for it. I really feel like if we get ONE good ally from this next set we're golden.

    The Envoy is generally considered decent as its a one mana ally, and a very cheap enabler. Gideon is something people are on the fence about. I think he'd be decent side but he needs to be tested.

    My big thing is recovering from a wipe of some sort, what would you guys think of lead the stamped? Green is a support color as it is, only really here for CoCo. Another card draw would be decent and if you hit a few allies they all go to your hand.

    As the title states, I bought 4 cavern of souls off of eBay and two are a lighter color however 2 are a darker shade of purple. I've never tested for fakes before so I'm getting opinions. one picture is of the cards side by side and the other is how they all look with the light through the card.

    I'll be honest, After seeing it hit day two I'm looking into it hard. I've played Zoo and as much as I love wild nacatl, it just isn't doing it for me anymore. I started in Zendikar and I, for the longest time had a casual ally combo deck. I'm about to start reading past pages however I do have a question. The deck that made it to day two was only three color, Is there any real advantage over not going 5? I mean, you have the lands for it easy enough.


    As far as I know, there has been 2 ally decks made to day 2, one in a GP and the most recent in the las SCG tourney and yes, both were naya colors.
    I can see 3 reasons for running 3 colors over 5:
    - Stability
    - Blood moon
    - Non-ally spells (interaction and sideboard cards mainly) that you might not be able to cast reliably

    I am currently running 4 colors and while the manabase is ok and I rarely have trouble for casting my allies, I see the non-ally spells I can cast reduced to green or white. I tried boros charm and dromoka's command but coulnd't get the mana 9 out of 10 games, which was very frustrating.


    I could see that. The I would like to have some kind of kill card to be on the safe side. I would figure dromoka's command over others would be best. I was really interested in Drana though I know the black cards from ZEN and WWK were a bit over priced for the most part.

    I have a few questions. I like the Zoo list i've been playing (its a very stock list), but my issue is that I often get into a top deck war with the higher tier decks and with so few spells I always tend to lose. A lot of my meta is easy enough, 8 rack, delver, and a few home brews but I'll often go 2-2 because there are a few twin decks and at least one jund, a few burn, and a few infect. How does Knightfall change our game vs those decks from what you can tell? Is staying no less then 25 creatures absolutely necessary? or would dropping to 24 and maybe 23 be okay?

    I'd love to hear what you think about Courser of Kruphix. I know it was being tossed around on the Combo thread but it seems like it'd be okay as a one or two of. Adding in a little bit of life every now and then and it's a little bit of card draw.

    The side board is more then a bit of a mess. Wasn't sure what do to with it as this was only the second time I've played it. Also, I'll warn you, I have a horrible memory but I'll tell you the highlights as best as I can remember.

    Round 1 vs infect
    Game 1, bolt and Nacatl win everything.
    Game 2, would have been the same as game one had I not forgot to play a land on my turn before he become immense'd
    game 3, bolt and goyf do work.
    2-1

    Round 2 vs grixis control
    games were really fast and simple. I don't know if he didn't really draw any creatures to block because aside from bolt and tasigur I didn't see much. Also, Tasigur ate a path every time and he never was able to do much.
    2-0

    Round 3 Burn (my ride)
    Game 1, I draw all my Nacatls and he runs out of gas too soon.
    Game 2, I don't see my fire walkers but my ScOoze does enough work to keep me alive through the burn he has and Dromoka's Command ends up being the major winner here. Having him sac his eidolon of the great revel and fight his swift spear was amazing.
    2-0

    Round 4 Robots
    I've only play affinity/robots like 3 times in total and when I did I was playing infect. Not much to say here, game one I was killed with inkmoth Nexus + cranial plating. game two I didn't have any green after I got my Magus out because he killed my Noble.
    0-2

    Round 5 Twin
    We knew if we drew we were both going into top 8 so we drew and just watched others play.

    Round 6 Coco Zoo
    Game 1, Nacatl, Noble, and Kytheon in my opening with 2 lands and a bolt. drew into another creature and the opponent didn't seem to. I ended up getting to flip Kytheon and He did some major work in this match. I used him once or twice in a few other matches but he was a game winner. Near the end my opponent had a 4/5 goyf and I made him attack Gideon, CoCo'd into two 5/5 KotR and that ended that game quickly.
    game 2, we honesly had very similar draws. Like, VERY similar. He fetches, I fetch, He coco's at the end of my turn, attacks, and I Coco. Just a lot of fun, but I ended up winning end the end.
    2-0

    Got to top 4, we all split. I got 12 packs of origins (mostly junk) and $63. all in all I had a lot of fun and I'll be sure to keep playing Zoo! If anyone has a little bit of ideas on possible changes or a better side board hit me up!

    (edited some spelling and added the last line.)

    Sadly I'm pretty much stuck to FNM since i'm in Arkansas. The decks at my store are infect, burn, a bogles deck, a few RWU control decks, an affinity and then just random things. Anything that you guys thing I should do to or possibly change? I know many aren't fans of Vault but I'd like to give it a shot at least. I'm not sole on the Stony Silence as I already have some decent artifact hate in the way of Qasali Pridemage and fracturing Gust. But I have no idea what to substitute.

    I have most of the deck built, All i'm missing is two wilt-leaf liege and I run a fairly stock list. I did a side even at the Memphis GP and I went 2-1 got 200 tickets and got my playmat. First game was vs a twin deck and with my chokes, seize, and abrupt decays I won 2-1. Second game was against some sort of burn discard deck and I won 2-0. last game was against twin and I never saw my decays or chokes and lost 0-2. All in all I'm enjoying it and I think it has some good potential. Also I should probably say this was the first time I've ever actually did anything with this deck so I'm very happy about it.

    Favorite Playstyle (Aggro, Midrange, Control, Combo): I'm Running infect right now and I love how I can randomly pull out a win against anyone. I killed a burn player from 2 to 10 in one swing at 1 hp. it was the highlight of my playing so far. Made him rage quit the store apparently because no one's seen him since.
    How Competitive (For Fun, Local Tournament, MTGO, PTQ/GP): FNM+. though I'll probably stick to just FNM lots of people build burn, delver, pod, twin, and infect in my area.
    Favorite Cards/Colors: I love white and i'm starting to like green. but I HATE counters.
    Budget: somewhere around $300 or so.
    Staples Owned: 4 Noble Hierarch, 4 Thoughtseize, 4 GW fetches, 4 GR fetches, 4 WB fetches, 4 voice of resurgence, 4 birthing pods, 3 siege Rhino.

    Only thing I can really recommend is making room for at least 3 nature's claim and 2 spellkite. I went against a burn deck at FNM and I pulled out a win with a spellkite and a few nature's clam.

    I haven't been following the tournaments that closely but it doesn't seem like infect is played all that much anymore, is that true?

    Well, I've been looking for a deck for a while now and I think I've settled on Infect. I had a mono green one build when i started because it was cheap. I was getting 4 noble hierarch to try and GW hatebears but i stuck them in the green infect in place of Necropede and got second at my FNM. lots of just random decks and it was fun the big thing I was happy about though was that I beat a guy playing UR faeries 2-1. He was someone who's went to big tournaments apparently and played very rules lawyer ish after our match him and his friend kept saying how unfair infect was, it was awesome! I'll admit, I haven't been following any tournaments lately is the main infect decks G/u or has it mainly gone to bug?

    I've been wondering the same myself. I'm torn between the two myself. Either way I'm going green and white as I've traded for 3 Nobles. Only thing is I really don't want to rely on flashing in and out blade splicer, but the combat tricks from flashing other creatures could be fun. and on the other hand if someone sides in Hushwing Gryff things'll go down fast for DnT.

    What if we switched the 3Mangara of Corondor for Quickling for more flicker and the 4 Restoration Angel for Blade Splicer?

    I did indeed miss that. Thanks for correcting me. I think path in your own would be a very interesting play especially if you have young Pyro out, at that point you're basically spending one white mana to get a land which doesn't sound too bad to me.

    How did the deck do without any anthem type cards aside from Zealous Persecution? What kind of decks did you play against? Before you went to hero did you try Brimaz?

    I'm really interested in this splash and the only thing holding me back is I lack the r/w fetches at this point. I hope I can get them and join the testing soon.

    I'd love to hear how the deck does. How do you think it stacks up? do you have many issues making sure you have the correct mana or any other major issues?


    Edit: Speaking in terms of the strickly BW deck, what would be the best way to add some... oomph to the deck? possibly add some Dark Confidant for some extra draw?

    I'm curious, has Purphoros, God of the Forge been tested in this deck with, at all? You'll never activate as a creature, which is a boon in older formats, indestructible, no one plays Deicide or Revoke Existence in Modern, and it gives the deck some serious reach and speed.


    This is something I'd be interested in. I'd love to add red and get Young Pyromancer in on this.

    So, if you were to add blue to this deck, Faborable winds, Dispel, Cryptic Command, and Snapcaster? but what to take out?

    So, honest question. I'm just starting to get into modern from a break and before that all i really did was play EDH. It seems like all decks in involve either goyf, snap, bob, or some combo of the three. Seems kinda stale because even if you come up with something new, if you just add or more of them they deck will be even better. Is there anything that can be done to change that? If not, is it possible that they'll be banned?

    Just from reading everything and knowing how fast some of the decks are in modern it doesn't seem quite like it might be fast enough to beat something like affinity or, at least I'm not sure how as I've yet to build it. How would it compare to the faster decks and how would you deal with them?

    I use Spear of Heliod in my Bitterblossom build...I guess you could also use Glorious Anthem if you are afraid of artifact kill for some reason...


    Ah, thanks! Maybe a x2 of the spear? I'm trying to put together a Bitterblossom list and its slowing coming together in my head. Just figured I'd need something besides those two and Zealous Persecution Also, since I'm going to run Bitterblossom, it should be a full 4 or correct? (still fairly new to deck building in general).

    So, aside from intangible virtue and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are there any decent cards to buff non-white tokens permanently?

    So, I'm really thinking of building this deck. I've been following it for a short time and I've just found a place that does modern like once a month or so. I've only seen one person play an actual tier one deck and it was affinity. While I don't plan on going to anything more then FNM, how would something like this work in something bigger? Just wanting to make sure if I do spend the money/make the trades for the parts I can find it won't be for something that's really not worth it in the long run.

    Also, from what I've read the land destruction seems like the stronger of the deck when it comes down to it, is that right?
