    Correct, Urza lands check subtypes, not names.

    I disagree with your Dredge evaluation - you definitely need to keep a few Pushes in to kill Stinkweed Imps so you can break through. Yes they're gonna come back but you can't beat their late game anyway. You have to punch a hole and hit them hard. I cut my Inquisitions for counters and grave hate. Keep Thoughtseize for the life loss and to take key enablers like T1 Looting on the play.

    Lost to Dredge at the 33-player weekly today but this guy wins Modern Challenges and 5-0s leagues like nobody's business so I can live with it. Didn't sideboard ideally and got greedy, could have gotten 1-2 at the very least otherwise. Third place overall - I really believe the Manamorphose build absolutely still has the chops once you get comfortable with it.

    Didn't board in Lingering Souls all evening, thinking I might just free up those 4 slots as I never really want to grind against grindy decks anyway.

    The main reason to want 2 blue sources before humans blew up was because of Worldbreaker out of Tron, and maybe also Ponza - you wanted to be able to counter haymakers in those matchups even if you got a blue source blown up. (The other reason was if you played Snapcaster Mage, but I don't think that's very good).

    Right now, this just doesn't seem like a major consideration.


    Agreed, but that's a bad plan to begin with if you run 2 Stubs as your only counters in the entire 75..

    That Breeding Pool should really be a Stomping Ground. You play 2 blue cards vs 5 red cards in your 75, no idea why you would want two blue sources for that configuration.

    Run 4 Manamorphose or don't run them at all. Lili main seems weak right now.

    Yeah control would be hard especially UW as they attack our mana base too. Souls shore the match up a bit, but if you see lots of control and grindy decks in your meta, Shadow is a bad choice.


    Well, that's a given.. But if you're going to play it anyway I think Stubs are absolutely necessary. If you choose to cut blue and go for straight Jund colors, why not just play Jund?

    Can we unban Stoneforge Mystic. Modern is powercreeping the last year's. I mean Jace was fine, BBE was fine. I can't see how turn 3 batterskull is a problem. Then the other 3 SFMs are dead draws. However the only thing I am not sure about is that she will play alongside Jace. Idk though what do you think?


    This has been discussed a million times already. SFM is sure to come off at some point.

    There is an entire thread dedicated to Grixis Shadow right there in the Midrange section. This has been discussed many times already.

    Am I going crazy if I want to try a BUG Midrange list without LoTV? What do you guys think?


    Not crazy at all. Crazy if you expect to win anything other than a lucky FNM with it though, yes.

    Seems like you have an awfully tough matchup against control without any blue cards to protect your threats as you go under them though, no?

    Even though (or maybe thanks to the fact that) this deck has fallen off the radar, I think it's still in a fairly good spot with some proper metagame adjustments.

    Still testing Stomping Ground vs Breeding Pool and 1 Grim Flayer myself. It's a tough call as I believe we desperately need an additional red source post-board against all the creature decks, but with control on the rise, Stubborn Denials are essential even if they're completely useless in the creature matchups. Bit of a toss-up but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    And second thing, what you think of putting JTMS in main? Ok, its mana cost is bit higher, but (...)


    ...but it won't do anything most of the time because you won't be able to cast it. I'm convinced JTMS isn't even a viable option in GDS sideboards.
