I'm thinking SB. Unless sweepers are dominating the format... That seems like a very unlikely thing though. It doesn't seem good against
Prowess: what do you name? 1 then they kill it and deal you 3.
Tron: do you name 3,7, or 8?
Control: I suppose 2,3, or 4.
D&T: easy 1.
Jund: feels like 1.
When you check MtgTop8 you can see that all Legacy DnT decks that did well over the last months had 1 or 2 copies main and even more in the SB.
I think 1 or 2 copies would be a good addition main since you'll know what your opponent is playing until turn 3.
Against Tron I'd name 7 I guess, against Karn and All is Dust.
Against Control: 4 - against Cryptic, Jace and Supreme Verdict
Against Combo: 0 - to prevent Living End or Summoner's Pact
Against Jund I'd name 2, since it stops Wrenn and Six, Eliminate, Assassin's Trophy/Abrupt Decay, or 3 if they already have W6 to stop Lily and K-Command
Against Burn and UR Prowess naming 1 can buy enough time to get to Batterskull, and naming 2 in game 2 stops artefact hate (Smash to Smithereens, Wear, Abrade)
Against Dredge: 2 - to stop Cathartic Reunion and Life from the Loam
Against Eldrazi Tron naming 4 stops pesky Karn, the Great Creator
And don't forget that my deck runs 29 creatures. If they use removal turn 1 and/or 2 they might not have an answer to this card right away...
Good points. And not discounting your statement. Just throwing out that legacy and modern are two entirely different formats. It's a little easier to hate on legacy with this card than modern. Imo. But including them main could be the correct decision.
Legacy uses the same cards to win typically and uses the superior CA and manipulating to find the cards. Modern feels more spread out.
New results since the last ones I posted:
2-0 vs Goblins
2-1 vs Vizier Druid Combo
0-2 vs G Tron
2-1 vs Orzhov Stoneblade
0-2 vs GB Elves
1-2 vs Hardened Scales
2-0 vs Yawgmoth Toolbox
2-0 vs Hardened Scales (opponent had two unlucky mulligans)
Three more losses but still on track.
So now I am 70-21, nine more matches until I reach 100 and I need to win five to achieve my goal: a 75% win rate in a total of 100 matches (just like with the Vial version).
It's interesting that I am doing really well against other Stoneblade decks. So far I played:
2-0 vs Bant Stoneblade
2-0 vs UW Stoneblade
1-2 vs Squirrel Stoneblade
2-0 vs Abzan Stoneblade
2-1 vs Mardu Stoneblade
2-1 vs Orzhov Stoneblade
That's also something I like about playing in MTGO tournament practice: there are so many different decks!
Played a few more matches:
2-1 vs Mono Green Devotion
0-2 vs UG Tron
2-0 vs Urza Thopter Sword
1-0 vs UW Control
2-0 vs Mono Green Devotion
2-0 vs UB Rogues
2-0 vs GW Bogles
After the Tron game I added 1 copy of the new Elite Spellbinder for a Ranger-Captain main.
And since I bought a card on Cardhoarder I used the opportunity to finally add a 2nd Cavern of Souls to the deck.
The Spellbinder actually won me a game against the Urza deck.
76-22 - two more matches to go but I made it to 75% again!
sweet deck stevo. noticed it on mtggoldfish. great results.
Hi WickedApp, yeah, I asked Seth to add it to the FishTank
Have you found a good Jeskai build for the current Modern meta? Even though I am on mono white now it's sad to see that the Jeskai Tempo primer is dead.
