I have updated the Golgari matchup entry to reflect my most recent research and testing, and I'm confident the SB plan is most effective. I am working on Drakes and White Weenie as the next entries for the matchup section, stay tuned!

Mono-Red Aggro is a low to the ground aggressive strategy that aims to use its creature pressure to push early damage on the opponent and its efficient burn spells to finish them off. Shaking up the typical aggro deck formula however is Experimental Frenzy which also provides overwhelming access to resources later on in the game and does a great job addressing the issue of running out of gas as the game goes on.

Didn't say it was a bad tournament. I implied that two linear decks smashing into each other, one playing cards you cant interact with, and the other sitting behind a Bridge, is less than a thrilling conclusion to the day. The topdecked Seal of Primordium for the win is not skill, it's the very definition of variance: draw the right card and win, don't draw the right card and lose.
I'm sure the rest of the tournament was fine; I was unable to see most of it other than the last round and Top 8. I also just personally hate Ben Seck as a commentator. He's terrible on Magic TV and he was terrible from what I saw yesterday.
It can't be interacted with except, you know, by the 3 mana artifact that interacted with it.

(3/13 update)Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from KTROJAN »You realize that the point is the only reason for the blue cards is to get to/protect the black ones. This doesn't mean blue is strong it means black is strong and people will use whatever gets them to the strong cards.
What's wrong with that? Being a strong enabler/supporting color is a perfectly valid argument for a color's strength.

(3/13 update)Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from cfusionpm »So sure, I guess diversity and health now is just barely reaching what it was when Twin was still in the format. It only took a year and a half, multiple extraneous bannings, and there's still no competitively viable control or reactive tempo decks playable. But I guess Modern is doing great because there's so many ways you can kill your opponents quickly and through high variance.
Without even getting into whether or not "reactive tempo" is even a real thing, if it was, Grixis DS and DSJ would almost certainly fall into that category.

edit: disregard I got ninja'd
May 26, 2017Posted in: Modern Archivesno one actually knows how these cards will perform in modern so no one has a valid opinion regarding which one is more or less safe than another
May 24, 2017You're replying to Massacre by saying blue is the only color that has to face hosers?Posted in: Modern Archives
May 23, 2017I would argue that a balanced meta (in the sense that all archetypes are represented equally) does not equate to a healthy meta.Posted in: Modern Archives
May 23, 2017Posted in: Modern Archivesthe semblance of "blue reactive decks" being competitive is basically gone.
