Quote from Magpie842 »So, I played 4 rounds of modern tonight (LGS event). I really wanted to be on radouf's "turbo package", but alas I don't have the baubles for it.

That said, it was great watching Gerry wreck a bunch of opponents even with a mistake or two. As he puts it, this deck is gas!
Quote from shadowgripper »@radouf can you share you latest list? I noticed you mentioned some cards I haven't seen yet in one of the video comments.
Quote from OnlyTiggerlol »As of now and seeing the success Radouf has had with the turbo version, this is what some more testing has lead me to.

I think the mainboard is pretty locked tight, I did drop one fatal push for a pithing needle main, because aside from bridge and combo, it is my the target I whir for most often.
Most of the difference for me are in the sideboard, and sideboard is always subjective to the meta you expect. I think the easy cuts from radoufs lists are trading post and jester's cap. While cute they both are a little slower than I want to be, even though they represent whir-able targets.
I have never gotten much value off of padeem, but maybe someone has some insight into why this guy is worth the slot. I see him as the least synergistic part of the deck as he is not an artifact, so can't be found with our toolbox. Add onto that being a creature, I feel like he is just working against what the deck is trying to do. Could be a meta call if there is a ton of ancient grudge/nature's claims in your meta, but most of the hate I see is stony silence and grafdiggers. Always seemed too unreliable and as a one of in a toolbox deck, I just never got to see him when I wanted. If a similar effect was on a CMC 4 artifact it would be an easy include though.
Herald of anguish is the all-star in the sideboard for me atm, basically giving another huge payoff for running 20+ artifacts in the deck. 3 Seems right and has won me more games than any other sideboard card.
I tried a copy of tolaria west, and I agree with the people saying its too slow. Map helps a lot by letting us find our lands, but Whir for map for tolaria for ballista is WAY to mana intensive to ever actually do, especially when whir for map for Fair for crucible is much more synergistic and rewards rather than punishes you for doing it in small parts and gives more inevitability.
