    Sooooo... Jace... Make sure if you run sweeper spells Volcanic is probably top choice again. Basically i’d Suggest being ready to go back to Twin erra builds. Sleeve up those Exquisite Firecraft too!

    Would it be better to sideboard my Fallouts and run something else main?


    I might suggest boarding out 2 and leaving in 2. Still allow the “Gotcha”s but against the wrong deck it becomes “1RR Shock is both and maybe lose 1+ of my guys.”. I mean it does nothing to Tron or Lantern etc.

    I wouldn’t try the RW man land. Essentially 5 mana is REALLY high. I’ve started picking up some Hostile Deserts to try. Especially if I try the 1WW Wrath and want to try to clean up the board on like turn 5 or 6 and swing with a whole mess of freshly activated bodies. I plan to try the same in Standard with Vehicles if I can find any time.

    I also kind of want to try out Baffling End in the board. Pesky bigger threats. How about we just make sure they don’t come back and if they REALLY want a 3/3 they have to work for it.

    How often do you feel flooded from the 22 lands? I haven’t redone my list for a while but I ordered some goodies like Path of Mettle, Daredevil, and some other goodies. I may even consider finding time to test out Slaughter the Strong with a little Gideon action going.

    Have the Seekers still been working out for you? Also how have Soul-Scars been for your list. I’m sure you like them for the same reason you run Volcanic Fallouts. Gotta love perminently -2/-2’ing your opponent’s board before swinging with Prowess powered dudes. Though Fallout does get in the way of Brimaz tokens and part of why I like PoM for some testing expecting somewhere to see some Lingering Souls tokens trying to clog up the board. I still need to get my hands on a few more Legion’s Landing to test how reliable one can flip it and get both the land ramp and endless supply of lifelink dudes.

    Oh and especially with your similar focus on Prowess did you test Flame Jab? It was always a powerhouse when I was playing more. I only ever got to one store level even with Bedlhams but it felt great to get my hand low or empty to power out a lowered cost Devil and reload. Every late game land draw was live compared to back when I played more frequently i’d topdeck that land when all I needed was Prowess triggers, dudes, or a burn/removal spell...

    Well this deck performed better than I expected. I went 6-2 in the modern portion of GP Santa Clara but couldnt day 2.

    Team trio always makes it hard on getting results but still sounds great to make 6-2!

    The 3 cmc Wrath is really great actuslly! Makes all the spot removal that much better. It also means any of the Walker builds specifically Gideon and/or use of Heart of Kiran finishers let you wipe the board and then stomp face a few turns at the end. About any of the Gideon’s will keep whatever they choose to save busy as you tighten your locks or nooses.

    Blood Sun let’s not underestimate the flavor win! :p

    Blood Sun, while not winning against Tron turns off every utility land.

    MOAR PRESENTS!!!!
    http://mythicspoiler.com/rix/cards/direfleetdaredevil.html


    "Dire Fleet Daredevil"
    1R
    Human - Pirate
    First Strike

    When Dire Fleet Daredevil enters the battlefield, exile target instant or sorcery from an opponenty's graveyard. You can cast that card this turn and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color. If that card would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.
    2/1

    OH! And for anyone running Blood Moon or Magus... rules change incoming to be ready for. Lands entering under Blood Moon enter untapped as a Basic Mountain. No Vesuva or other tricks. Outside of Modern this does affect cards like Dark Depths so one could play Moon, play Depths, ditch their own Moon and have a 20/20 death stick. Be aware of the new rule. I have not explored yet if this can be abused with other Modern legal effects yet.

    This is a lot bigger than it might initially look like. DnT lists in Modern and Legacy might find better use but this is still HUGE!

    Planeswalkers Uniqueness rule will be gone at the release of Ixilan. All Walkers are now Legendary and follow the Legendary rules. Kytheon is now better because you can play him out and still be able to play the other Gideons as when he flips you don't have to pick "do I keep flipped Kytheon or my other Gideon?". We may see a heavy shift toward control in the meta as well as the Boros archetypes may start to merge some more again as you can take that "tribal Gideon" deck and the Boros Pillowfort and literally any other Boros list and mash them together.
