Quote from LuBuFu »Fantastic primer, the original archived thread got me interested, and I have started playing through the deck.
Given, my local meta is 60% burn so I might have been a little biased (Shoal version)
Anyway, I posed the question: for our 'flex' green spell, instead of the Time of Need have Summoner's Pact?
I'd like to hear your thoughts. In testing, I've really liked it.
Quote from DaR »I ran a variation on the Shoal build last night. The biggest change was the manabase, which is actually set up to be able to bring in 3 Blood Moons from the sideboard and minimize pain from Shocks in order to keep me above 14 life so I can double draw pre-combat with a Griselbrand.
Quote from Jpump145 »I've been playing this deck on and off since the release of Modern. Played in a PPTQ yesterday went 1-2 drop. Round 2 and 3 I got both my opponents to 1 in game 3 with Emrakul and couldn't find a Lightning Bolt or another combo. Round three was particularly annoying because my hand was 2 Griselbrand, 2 Emrakul, 1 Goryo's with 4 land in play against Burn with an empty board after an Emrakul swing. I was at 2 life from Eidolon and burn since I can't draw Leyline of Sanctity in the opening 7, and he obviously hit 2 lands and Skullcracked me. Bad beats all day from me and my group that played.
Quote from LetsGoHome »Hey folks. I'm glad to see this thread get a fresh primer, I think it's been long overdue. I recently got 4th place at a modern Win-a-box event, there were ~36 people if I remember right. I can do a brief writeup if people are interested. So far I haven't seen anyone run the exact list I am, so I thought it might help people develop their decks. The Blood Moons are now Rending Volleys.
Quote from Kathal »
Blood Moon is an interesting idea, since we can get it into play on turn 2 and it makes our week match-ups a better (RG Tron isn't that great and Infect can just fold to it. It is also great against random decks like Amulett Bloom). I find myself rarely shocking lower then 15 life. The exception are some early beats from our opp. Have to test Moon (after I test Pact and the Grixis Shoal version).
