Hello guys! I have recently started testing this deck! What's the general idea about having BBE in the list?
I have tested a list with 4 of them but something it felt a bit useless, especially when cascading cards like green pact! So I was thinking to drop to 3 of them!

Oct 12, 2018I made some tests with the first BUUR list reported above and I have to say Mission Briefing is a GREAT card! Is what Mill was missing! Field of ruin then briefing putting 2 useless cards in the yard and the casting trap for Zero is amazing!! I played the list with the 2 opt but I would like to replace them with 2 manic scribe getting to the second BUUR list but keeping anyway 3 Briefing cause I absolutely love that card!Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
Sep 2, 2018Hello guys! I am playing the list which made top8 in GP Prague (25 lands, 4 snaps, 2 azcanta and 2 Teferi) but I would like to drop 1 lands (3 field of ruin are a nightmare for me) and add another win condition!Posted in: Control
What do you suggest between a Gideon and a Geist of Saint Traft?
Thanks for the answers and feel free to suggest something else!
Jul 2, 2018Hello guys! I started playing this UW Control listPosted in: Control
and at last tournament I faced Eldrazi Tron and, even if opponent complained it was an hard match up for him, I was totally destroyed even with multiple seas and field of ruin played :S
2 Stony Silence
1 Runed Halo (best target TKS and Smasher)
1 Blessed ALliane (additional removal)
1 Elspeth (wrath effect)
1 Secure the wastes (blockers)
1 Disdainful Stroke
Any advices on how to sideboarding and how to play? It is quite a frequent deck in the LGS where I play!
Thanks a lot! Help me please
Jun 17, 2018I started testing a list similar to the one you posted at the end of the post but without the two Jaces. I will add Jace AOT (whose finisher can be also make us win the game) and a second Gideon of the trials to lower a bit the mana curve! Concerning the rest I think counterspells are not so efficient in UW control cause it has became a sorcery deck and that is why I dont like single counterspell like knot, snare o leak. As the list I play 3 cryptics and 1 negate with some more negates in the sideboard to deal with non-creature match-up.Posted in: Control
For reference, that is my list.
Sideboard in progress but depends on the meta.
Jun 6, 2018HI guys! I am building a classic UW control list but without Jace and with a couple or Teferi! Then I would like to add a couple of Gideons but I have some doubts about the number and type of them! Would you go with 2 gideon of the trials? O a split between 1 trials and 1 ally/jura?Posted in: Control
Thanks a lot for your help!!
Jun 3, 2018hi guys! I have recently started testing a list without Jace and I really felt good with it!Posted in: Control
I am open to receive feedback and thoughts since I am quite new to UW control (but long time with Jeskai various versions)
DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards Lands (25)
3 Celestial Colonnade
4 Field of Ruin
4 Flooded Strand
2 Hallowed Fountain
1 Prarie Stream
1 Irrigated Farmland
1 Gideon of the Trials
1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
2 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria
2 Snapcaster Mage
2 Wall of Omens
1 Vendilion Clique
4 Serum Visions
2 Supreme Verdict
1 Wrath of God
1 Settle the Wreckage
3 Cryptic Command
1 Logic Knot
4 Path to Exile
1 Sphinx’s Revelation
2 Detention Sphere
2 Search for Azcanta
4 Spreading Seas
What is currently under testing is the number and types of counterspell (even if I think Negate maybe took to 2) and the number of Wall of Omens!
Thanks everybody for your help!
May 30, 2018In MTGO PTQ there were 2 quite performing UW control lists had only 1 Jace,TMS with 2 Teferi and some Gideons.Posted in: Control
Are we attending the slowly disappearing of Jace from UW control too?
To be honest I have never liked it and recently I started testing a quite stardard control list with 2 Teferi and 2 Gideons and I found it super good!
Moreover also counterspell are slowly being reduced just to "definitive counters" like Cryptic and Negate. I have never understood the reason of a singleton logic knot, or mana leak or spell snare. We are becoming always less "instant", but this is not a big deal
May 28, 2018Hollow one is awful, nothing to add.Posted in: Midrange
jeskai control is good cause they die to Blood Moon and post board they will have to mulligan good hands to look for enough basic/fetchland. T1 sprawl, T2 moon is 90% game for us, moreover counters are slower than our spell.
Humans I feel like a good matchup unless they make T2 thalia and we are on the play. Ok they have vial but at least they will cast 1 creature each turn being way slower. And Inferno Titan destroys that deck
Unfortunately is a deck that depends a lot on what is at the other side of the table.
May 25, 2018Hello guys! A newbie of UW control here. Do you think that this deck can be run without the 2-3 copies of Jace,TMS? I started testing a version with 2 teferi and 2 different gideon (1 ally and 1 trials) cause I think this modern is not good at all for Jace (for example in Jeskai it has been replaced defintely). For sure I am referring to a non-miracle version of UW control.Posted in: Control
Thanks for the opinions!
May 7, 2018Probably it is just something temporary but we are seeing a lot of successfull lists with Teferi in these days. I have played it, saw some SCG games where he overperformed and I think he has a greater impact than Jace in the format. His plus provides card advantage and he protects himself, his -3 followed by a Path to exile is remarkable as well. Then, this is just my 2 cents, but seeing the current status of Control in modern I think it is better to explore all strategies cause we saw that Jace unban led only to a decrease of control decks.Posted in: Control
Apr 25, 2018Posted in: ComboQuote from TheAller »Quote from rick90 »I think it is worth playing the deck cause having white we have early blockers (wall of omens), better removal (path to exile) and additional closure for non combo plan (colonnade). Then considering the card advantage brought by felidar guardian interaction with snapcaster and wall of omens and the better sideboard the white gives. I played UR Kiki and for example a T2 Goyf can be hard to deal with, combo plan is hard cause there are only 2 kiki in the deck.
If you want a more reliable combo deck, you can just play UR Breach though.
Path is good, and that's the only thing Copycat seems to have going. After playing some Blue Moon I realized you can have everything you need in your sideboard without white, so the sideboard argument doesn't convince me.
I also don't think Wall of Omens or Felidar blinking stuff are a big plus. And the non-combo plan of this deck is not very good IMHO, we're more one-dimensional than I like. We have a better plan b than UR Breach, but a worse one than UR Kiki IMHO.
And if it all comes down to Moon vs Path, I don't know. You can still play cards like Harvest Pyre, Roast, Engineered Explosives, Entrancing Melody to take care of Goyfs and such in UR. I think Moon vs Path is a win for Moon in most metagames.
Concerning combo it is true, breach combo is more efficient and less counterable. The problem is that if you dont have both cards you are having a useless card in hand while Saheli is not a bad PW at all especially with the rest of our creatures (with snapcaster especially) and felidar blinking can be good as well alone.
All three combos have pro and cons. I cannot play UR breach due to lack of key cards so I am deciding between Kiki Moon and Saheeli, with a bit of preference to the latter.
