The last 15 for sideboard were for the meta I faced before eidolon at my shop. It obviously needs tweaking now since the meta has shifted some. Also, I have been wanting to try a different wincon than dreams and visions. Ive been thinking about using a lock down combo like academy ruins and mindslaver. I use to run a fun thing with silence and megrim / lilianas caress that worked pretty well. I avoided green bc there's nothing in green that really excites me to play it over any other color. I avoided creatures in general to blank their removal and wrath. I also don't like the idea of running snapcaster. Sure he's a flash block but he's easily outclassed by most cards in modern and he makes our 1 mana fogs 3 mana since we use 2 to cast snaps and 1 to flashback the fog. I main board leyline bc of burn, storm, and other combos that target. Sb was set up against Tron, burn, living end, and counters for stuff that stops fogging at instant speed ( grand abolisher ) or for twin.
If you want some advice, I'll get back to help in a bit
Quote from MTGTCG »I feel like a mill version of the deck with the new Jace, Vryn's Prodigy and Sphinx's Tutelage might be effective. The deck would also need another win-con as Gx Tron and Leyline of Sanctity are both popular in this meta. I think a white splash for the fog effects and Luminarch Ascension would be pretty good. Any thoughts?
Quote from sicsempertyrannis »Edit: Also I forgot to ask you what do you think of monastery siege? . It seems like some standard card drawal/filtering engine or otherwise some tax for burn, or maelstrom pulse/artifact hate.
1) We don’t play creatures so my first fright is that the moment we animate our manlands, our opponents will have removal waiting in their hands doing nothing but take up space. So we are unable to attack/block and we will lose one of our lands. The moment we have a Leyline of Sanctity out the Lightning Bolts will sit and eat our Tarpits.
2) Now what if our opponent has a creature dense deck that just turns everything sideways? They played some fetches, some shockers, etc. and lost some life. When we would use multiple copies of Batwing Brume we could really punish them when attacking with 6-7 creatures (I once did 14 dmg against an Elf deck). Against those decks our manlands could give the final blow, but again, we have to watch out for unused removal.
3)Playing Jace you could say the same thing. Sure we can protect him from combat damage, but will he be a shooting duck against any other kind of removal which essentially gives our deck a useless slot.
4) Looking at the current tier-decks I have a hard time convincing myself manlands or Planeswalkers will work. So that, or am I to worried about removal? We do have Swan Song and Remand to counter but do we need those to counter other threats that really can screw us over?

Also what do you guys think about the red circle of protection/ story circle for thje sb?
Can you give us an example when you would board that card in? Would you play that instead of one of the fog effects?
Is there enough dredge, Tron (mill away Emrakul), Snapcaster, delve, Kolaghan’s Command etc. being played to enable us to play Rest in Peace mainboard. Look, we don’t make use of our GY, so why would we let our opponents be able to? I’ve got an inkling that when I go to an event I will make use of that R.I.P. How do you guys see the current meta, and would a R.I.P. fit in that meta?
