    More creatures in Modern, blue is busted in Legacy, and Force of Will

    If this is a sneeky breeky way to make people more aware that Force of Negation is a damn good card then I agree

    As I said in the post, it's the cmc3 walkers that have really pushed this deck. Ignite was powerful and fun but would need more testing

    HOWEVER Fact or Fiction probably now would go in that slot. I'm planning on trying to fit two FoFs in

    Pact of Negation also needs a slot in the deck, I'm probably cutting a cryptic and a cheap counterspell for 2 FoN in the main. It's going to be interesting to balance Dovin's Veto and Force of Negation in the main and side.

    IMO FON is being severely underappreciated. People talking about it being a SB card and all...


    Absolutely. Especially since it's easy to hardcast, it's definitely a mainboardable card for plenty of decks. I think a lot of people look at Force of Will and then to the downsides they stapled to Force of Negation instead of looking at FoN from the ground up.

    It's funny, although I mostly play UWx and want to play FoN in that, I am actually most excited to pick up merfolk with it again.

    Fact or Fiction is FINALLY on the menu, boyz!


    **** yes.

    We can stop the spoiler season now, between Sort of Will and Fact or Fiction I am satisfied.

    ^There's no longer a green card in your hand to pitch once Lattice resolves.

    Seasoned Pyromancer has the secret mode of getting a 2/2 with your divination if you're hellbent but otherwise isn't that exciting to me. VERY excited about the force cycle considering both the blue one and green one already seem to have application.

    No changes as expected

    Pour one out for blue pauper players though

    Took this list to a VERY unambiguous 4-0 at FNM this Friday



    Beat the Rock, Spirits, black devotion and burn, dropping only one game vs black devotion through flooding out. 3 mana planeswalkers were nutty. Ignite the Beacon got a concession out of Rock and set up the winning play vs spirits by forcing them to fight over it on their EOT and untapping into Verdict with backup. Not sure yet if Ignite is too cute or an actual consideration but with the new walkers this felt like the strongest UWx list I've played. Didn't get to play vs anything unfair but against fair decks current UW just melts anything.

    Win, from my experience. It isn't a very common deck so this comes from maybe ~10 matches vs proc since the unbanning of JtMS, but I can't remember losing a match.

    The lifegain is insignificant as UWx is fine winning by decking them, and even though martyr proc's creatures recur they are too small to pose a significant threat. By the time they can Forecast Proclamation, Jeskai is doing much more powerful things; we mostly just need to path Serra Ascendant and we're golden. Emeria is the scariest card martyr proc has but can be played around by sandbagging a field of ruin.

    A mistake I've seen almost every single martyr proc player make is thinking theyre still in the game when they should scoop and go to sideboard. I've seen people forecast Proc 10 turns in a row gaining infinite life thinking theyre advancing their gameplan whilst I'm sitting there ticking up planeswalkers until my hand is so Godlike there's no Modern legal card that can beat me. Then they eventually deck or scoop and have no chance to complete game 2 before time.

    I think proc needs to be the aggro vs UWx and have some actual threats that UWx can't just ignore; recurring one drops does not cut it versus Jace the Mind Sculptor.

    So today's B&R can't be anything but no changes for modern, right? No way they shake up the format the day after they give us our Sort of Will.

    I dub Force of Negation "Sort of Will"

    VERY excited about this card for the reasons rickster and ktkenshinx already outlined. I honestly rather have this card over actual FoW for what I expect it to do to the format.

    Excited about Goblin Matron, would love to see Ringleader too and make Goblins a real deck in Modern. I wonder if Lackey would be too powerful.

    Prohibit I'm less excited about, between Logic Knot and Dovin's Veto there might be room for a singleton Prohibit, but FoN will also go in the counterspell slots. I'm still holding on for Counterspell on uncommon.

    ^What he means is that is you mulligan to 5, and Chancellor is the 7th card from the top of your deck, with the current Mulligan you will not get to see that Chancellor. But with London, you get to draw 7 and then keep that Chancellor (bottoming 2 other cards).




    As for Digital Cardgames getting updates on their cards, I don't think that would be feasible even if current MtG was entirely digital. Power being format dependent would mean that a card having to be banned in Modern could wreck perfectly fine decks in Legacy or Vintage.

    Now I think about it this actually happened to me, where the Hearthstone deck I built got made completely obsolete because they nerfed Mana Wyrm. Which had to be nerfed because of their eternal formal, whilst I was playing "standard", where the Mana Wyrm deck wasn't even tier 1. I played completely for free at that point so that was a month of grinding wasted and I just stopped playing altogether.

    "Limits design space" has always been an awful argument, especially as they then at the same time claim they don't design cards with Modern in mind.

    Print cards until something breaks, then ban what breaks. Not preemptively.

    What do you guys think about playing the new karn in this deck? Like a 1 of, so you can lock people out with Mycosynth Lattice, tutor up some sort of value/hate card like relic of progenitus or crucible of worlds, when you can't afford to play lattice. I assume the karn has a lower floor but higher ceiling than other value cards you'd play like a 3rd jace or 2nd/3rd teferi or the 4 mana instant divinations, where as those cards I listed are pretty consistent. Also the static ability just hoses some decks, like tron, which has picked up in popularity. Stupid lattice is 28 tix on mtgo now...


    It's going to be pretty rough to make enough room in the side for a wishboard I'd say. We're also less likely to immediately cast the tutored card like Tron gets to.

    List of modern playable equipment:
    Cranial plating

    Let’s not even talk about new equipment being printed. The old ‘good’ ones like swords and batterskull aren’t even good enough on their own.


    I do think Batterskull would see play with SFM, but it'd just be a decent fair play. Even in the fair matchups you can do a lot more devastating things nowadays. I'm uncertain about the swords.
