Match 1 vs. Burn (0-2)
I though I should have better odds against burn, not entirely sure what cards I'm looking for. I didn't get a good creature to stick - my Delver in game 1 was removed. The pitch spells were nice, but the card disadvantage really hurt. I brought in Cindervines and Weather the Storm, never drew them. The match ended quick so i pulle dout my own burn deck and won the mirror in a casual match.
Match 2 vs. UB Mill (2-1)
Game 1 he milled me out but I put up a real fight, he was down to 2 life. Next 2 games I won by pacing my spells and really biding my time to remove his big mill cards. Brought in Cindervines and Surgicals for this one. Fun games. I really wanna try out Veil of Summer in the SB now, since I've played this guy 3 different times now.
Match 3 vs. Izzet Phoenix (1-2)
I was playing with an opponent who was new to modern, it was his first night piloting the deck. I let him do a few plays over as we was also new to Magic. I could have won based on his poor sequencing, but I always want my opponents to play as well as possible so I let him take a few things back when he didn't understand the rules fully. They were very close games. I now know what I'm looking to counter. I sided in Surgicals, Weather the Storm, and Cindervines for this, never drew into any of them. I think I can beat Phoenix next time, but I also wanna try out Fry in the SP to deal with Things, though Vapor Snag did a great job bouncing them before the flip triggered.
How do people SB and play against Burn and Phoenix? Curious to get other perspectives.
