Apr 26, 2018If your meta is very tron heavy, do you think I should cut a Scavenger Ground to have 4 GQ? My meta has some graveyard decks and I know of a few midrange decks, but tron is definitely the most heavy archtype on any given night.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Apr 25, 2018I'm sorry, I meant when would we want it in the sb. I am running his build with Chalice but my meta is full of tron, storm, humans, hollow one, mardu and some random decks here and there like ponza, elves, infect, DnT. Usually 20 of us but it isn't uncommon for 3 humans 5 tron and 2 storm.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Any advice for this sb? I'm on Jordan's sb except an extra spatial over gut shot.
Apr 24, 2018I have read the SB article and all he mentions about Gx tron is that it is a good matchup.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
He also doesn't mention when Ghostfire blade should be a flex spot, only that it can be as a one of, and that it should be MB in a chalice-less build.
I didn't notice that other article that you tagged, so thank you!
EDIT: I already did a search for the ghostfire blade question and didn't find my answer, that is why I asked.
Apr 23, 2018When would you want to have a Ghostfire Blade in the SB?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Also, how do you guys side against G/x Tron? I'm currently cutting chalice for 2x Sorcerous Spyglass. My meta is very tron and humans heavy, so I wouldn't mind an optimized SB for those matchups.
Edit: OTP, would you guys keep a hand of: Temple, Relic, MR, Dismember, 2x Eternal Scourge, and a Powder. I ended up powdering it away because it was too land light and the 2 scourges made it seem like it was worth losing the one temple for future hands.
Dec 5, 2017Hmm, I can see how losing a lot of life could definitely be a bad thing. What is considered standard for the number main board? When I first got the deck, I had all 4 main, but in preparation for this tournament I did a little research and just modeled after the list that is on the deck of the day article from CFB (https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/deck-of-the-day-stompy-modern/). I made a few changes, as I didn't expect to face any hardcore blue control decks, and moved thrun to the sideboard along with removing the skylashers from the 75 in total. I added them back in now that I know I could face blue control. The only other competitive decks that I know are apart of my local meta now are tron and affinity. I could easily remove the 4th dismember for another sideboard card, but I feel like 2x main is a good number. Sometimes you just need to remove a blocker or get that extra 5 trample damage.Posted in: Modern Archives - Established
Edit: Wowza! I didn't know that Prowling Serpopard was a card. I think I should definitely get my hands on one of those.

It was a smaller event hosted at my school that I managed to go 3-0 in.
Match one 2-0
I was facing against a guy who just put together some BG Midrange Elves.
He won the roll but opted to draw for some odd reason. However, he ended up keeping a pretty bad hand and all I did was dismember his arbor elf and he only casted one more spell before I killed him on t4.
G2, he decided to be on the play and main phase casted a tribal instant that had clash and put two elves into play to tap more mana from his archdruid. He then cast a joraga tree speaker kicked twice, which I dismembered and pumped for the win.
Match two 2-0
I faced a dredgevine deck and he kept a pretty slow hand after a mull to six. I kept my 7 with a scavenging ooze, so it was a pretty easy victory. He did plenty of damage to himself and just couldn't block my pumped guys.
Game two we both mulled to 6 and I kept a somewhat shaky hand. It was experiment one, 2 forest, avatar and 2x dismember. I am pretty sure that should have been a mulligan, but I was hoping that my curve and disruption would have given me enough time to try and draw some hate. The only real highlight of this match was he casted a Bile Blight on my experiment one when I had another on the battlefield, I dismembered it in response and was able to get there. Got pretty lucky that he had bad starts. I got to win with Groundbreaker + Aspect Combo
Match three 2-0
I faced a RW planeswalker control deck and yet again got pretty lucky because my opponent mulled to 5 game one and got mana screwed.
Game 2 he snapped kept and I mulliganed to 6. I kept a hand with experiment one, avatar, dismember, 2 lands and a vines of the vastwood.
He bottled my turn one play and then mana tithed my avatar. Luckily I was able to get my next avatar to stick, and had vines back up, but he helixed the avatar and mana tithed my vines. Then we both kind of did nothing for a few turns as we both got stuck on lands, but eventually I was able to stick my 3rd avatar and rancor it. I got him down to 8 and then swung for 5 + 3 from aspect which he deflecting palmed me. Then next turn he deflecting palmed me again, and I was afraid I was gonna lose to mono deflecting palm lol. Eventually I drew both of my tree tops, one got bolted, my avatar got wrathed, and I was just barely able to get there with my last village when he was on 3. I had a handful of creatures, but he got stuck on 4 lands and I had seen earlier in the event him cast gideon, and ultimate Nahiri for Emrakul. The best part of this match is I got to dismember my Strangleroot Geist which was targeted with a path. Feelsgoodman.
Overall the deck felt pretty good, but I could have gotten paired up with 8-rack and UWR control. Not sure how those match ups are, but I am going to consider myself pretty lucky.
Edit: The prize was 4 iconic master's packs. I got pretty lucky and pulled an Elesh Norn and an Aether Vial. Nice $50 when it only cost 5 to enter the event
Oct 7, 2017What are people's opinion on Thought Scour? I have read the last few pages and all of the discussion seems to be about Remand/Peer through depts and then I vaguely saw other cantrips (peek/opt) mentioned. Also, what is the consensus for the optimal number of kill cards (empty/grapeshot) mainboard.Posted in: Combo
My current list has 7 medallion creatures, 3 kill spells, 12 rituals, 4 gifts, 2 PiF, 10 cantrips (2 thought scour), 3 remands, 1 noxious revival and 18 lands I have enough tickets that I could get 2 spirebloof canals, should I? I'm currently running 4 Flooded Strands, 4 Steam vents, 4 Shivan Reefs, 4 Island, 1 Hallowed Fountain (2 wear tear in the board) and 1 Mountain.
I'm also curious on what you experienced MTGO players think the best SB should be?
I'm really new to this deck, but I got my first 4-1 today in the Friendly Competitive league. Felt great!
