Quote from Ageless127 »Another Modern today and this time I went 5-1 with this list which makes my current record 16-2 over three weeks:

Made a few changes before the rounds began. I cut the Stony Silence from the board and added 1 Sigarda and 1 Path since very few players play E-Tron, Affinity, regular Tron or Lantern control. Playing a second Overgrown Tomb instead of a second Razorverge Thicket was a mistake as I originally had planned playing Push instead of Path but forgot to change the lands back last minute.
These were the rounds played:
Round 1: 2-0 against Bogles. Easy matchup. I comboed off game 1 and killed him with beatdown thanks to Finks and Rhonas.
Round 2: 2-1 against Jeskai Midrange. Really glad I played my 3 Voices in the deck as they helped me win game 2 and 3. Lost game 1 as I couldn't find enough lands in time.
Round 3: 0-2 against the mirror. He didnt play the Abzan version but a Naya version instead with Magus of the Moon and Blood Moon. He comboed off turn 3 game 1 and game 2 was a grindy game but he eventually comboed off.
Round 4: 2-1 against Mono Black Obliterator. Played against a deck that was mono black with Phyrexian Obliterator, Gifted Aetherborn, Liliana of the Veil and different kind of disruption (Inqusition and Push etc.). Lost game 1 as I didn't draw my third land. Won game 2 with Township beats and won game 3 by comboing off with Devoted Druid.
Round 5: 2-0 against Burn. Comboed off both games with Kitchen Finks. Finks does a lot of work in that matchup and Sin Collector helps as well.
Round 6: 2-0 against UR Storm. Comboed off turn 3 game 1 and game 2 I had alot of disruption (Sin Collector taking Past in flames, Decay killing his Baral and then I also had Eidolon). Killed him by just attacking a couple of times. Storm feels like a good matchups as I'm currently 5-1 against the deck.
As it is I will still continue to play Voice in the maindeck as it help the bad matchups which are primarily Jeskai Midrange and other removal heavy decks.
4) Why?! cc2 isn't better then 3? Gaping
Quote from Moneymakermich »A remark on sideboarding: remember that in games 2-3 if you're on the draw, then it is a correct option to sideboard out a land. You will hit your lands count with +/- the same probability.
Quote from phildash »Does anyone have any thoughts on Shaper's sanctuary in the side? I was considering putting 2 of them in my side against midrange and control decks which have a lot of targeted removal. My hesitation is that tireless tracker sort of plays the same role but is better because company can hit it.
