Quote from mnesci »I absolutely agree! I think it's the deck's playstyle that makes me love it, but the challenge is what makes it rewarding.
I think losing Probe made me a better player too. I certainly spend enough time thinking about what they could have and what the right line is. Makes me wish I had recorded some matches pre-ban so I could see how in-depth my thinking process was back then.
Quote from slipknot72102 »the card itself really isn't worth the card board its printed on...does it serve a purpose? Sure its a blue 1 drop that might not be a 1/1. I would not put it in a list and expect to win a PTQ or GP though.
Quote from Kovo »On a lighter note: have any of you also had a bunch of salty opponents online? Who say our deck isnt tiered and stands no chance?
Quote from Kovo »Its a bad matchup. I have won plenty of game 1's, but it does not mean its a good matchup. We need responses for all of their major plays, and if we dont, we fall behind too quick. I like deprive for matches like this, and my playset of Denials. Post board, I bring in Pongify, Moon, EE (for Chalice), Huntmaster, Destructive Revelry.
Quote from Donkin »Hi guys, I've picked this deck back up recently for a modern 1k in about 2 weeks.
I have found the eldrazi tron matchup pretty medium. Game one, we lose to chalice. If they don't resolve a chalice and we keep a decent hand, we can probably make it.
Game 2 gets much easier, as we side in artifact removal and side out our dead cards. putting artifact in the graveyard makes our goyf a 5/6, just big enough to block their smashers.
Narnam reneegade has been huge in this matchup, as our little one drop trades with any of their nasty threats. keep mana up for karn, some way to answer relic/chalice, and you with your 5/6 goyf are in the clear!
Quote from Lemonbuster »Ashton's post nicely sums up my struggles since the probe ban. Seems there isn't a path left that is 'ideal'.
I still think being competitive isn't an issue, but we're miles behind where we were a few months ago, and the format is always getting stronger.
