what is your deck list?Quote from BadMcFadden »Of course, some matchups tapping out turn six for wurmcoil is lights out. Others its a death sentence.
The problem is cards like talismans and solemns are only good if you tap out for them on curve. Sure you can see a matchup and decide to not talisman, with plan to pitch for thirst later, the problem I see is there are so few matchups where tapping out turn two in this deck is better than showing remand/condescend. This is compounded by the best turn two talisman lines requiring a turn three tapout (karn, solemn).
More often than not im just trying to weather the storm early on until I can ostone, rift, wurmcoil or ugin. Talisman doesnt do enough to help me not-die by turn four and actually nonbos with ostone.
Other times we're playing a chess match vs control or combo where one flop of a turn is a loss. You cant go talisman solemn vs storm because theyll baral and kil you. You cant vs uw because theyll resolve a jace (and will probably logic knot the solemn to boot).
Anyways I think folks know talisman is a personal choice, it just took me a while to figure out that for me its that I want the deck to be draw-go until I have a window to play a gamebreaker. The only time I want to tapout on my turn early on is if ive got tron and a match where ugin, wurmcoil, ostone etc are going to slam the door shut.

that's kind of what I thought looks interesting I might pick up the pieces to test it outQuote from Rjawas »Quote from rick98511 »https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-u-58730#paper what do you think of this list?
It's spicy but feels like it's in too many directions. If you want eldrazi go in and play 4 tks and 4 temple drop the artificats and lean into threats + countermagic. I believe that version popped up on an scg event once and had an article about it somewhere. Otherwise normal u Tron is prob more consistent but I do like tks in the board.

Sep 3, 2018At my fnm and Sunday tournament I went 1-2 had to leave for the last round both timesPosted in: Control
Round 1 storm 1-2 played against the best local storm player and the deck felt fine didn't find a rabble master to put pressure and he managed to combo off without a cost reducer. Pretty close games but he managed to take off.
Round 2 b/R budget 2-0 never seen this guy in the 4 months I've been playing but he had a budget elemental deck didn't really remember much took out all his creatures and he basically did nothing both games
Round 3 Naya zoo 1-2 a guy I've made friends with since coming to the shop normally plays jund but he built a random Naya zoo deck game one went well got blood moon off and he couldn't do anything game 2 back and forth he kept bolting me down we were both at 5 life and he managed to top deck bloodbraid unfortunately I had no removal and he had a bolt in hand game 3 didn't draw enough removal and got Beat down lol
Game 1 u/r wizards 2-1 never seen this Deck but I've heard of it. Seemed like a easy match up as long as you draw a threat which I didn't game 2 and lost
Game 2 saheeli combo 1-2 game one pretty easy best him down after getting rid of his walkers and creatures game 2 he had the combo unfortunately never played against this Deck so I wasn't too sure what to do had used a bolt earlier on a creature should've saved it for the combo game 3 he evolutioned into Lyra and the hexproof angel couldn't get rid of Lyra and got beat down
Game 3 GDS 0-2 never played this match up and got destroyed got stuck on 4 lands both games with one Stormbreath in hand game 1 and both in game 2 doesn't seem like a hard match up wasn't too sure what too do unfortunately
Overall the deck feels great few matches where I feel absolutely useless. My lack of game. Knowledge really shows but im learning and the deck helps out sideboarding is kind of tricky but I think I've got it down was running 4 magma jets main and they are a all star however next week I'm trying 4 Mind Stone again. Also I run 1 Karn generally I get the worst card having the option to return a cards is wonderful he's put in a lot of work especially with the construct tokens and he also draws a lot of hate sometimes with Hazoret its a little more annoying but again since I get the worst card I pitch it with her or just play the land haha

I've been having decent results with skred is worth running dragon skred over eternal skred? Are there any match ups that are better or worse than eternal skred?
Aug 27, 2018Posted in: ControlQuote from Hugo do Prado »
After playing a lot both Skred versions (Scourge/Koth and now Dragons) I think Dragons is better as we can finish earlier and with all flying creatures. We can't play without at least 3 Relic of Progenitus. The original Dragons sidebord is a mistake.
Draconic Roar seems bad but 2 of them is good. I would play 4 but we can't play without artifact removal main deck otherwise the Aether vial decks outrun our removals. There are also decks using Ensnaring Bridge.
would you recommended building dragon skred? im currently on eternal/koth and been enjoying it quite a bit was wondering if its worth buying into dragon skred
Aug 26, 2018Posted in: ControlQuote from Unnombrepls »I have re-started to play the deck again after playing UW for 2 months (maybe more).
Could someone give me some advice against storm? I felt like the matchup is unwinnable today and I haven't seen the deck too much in my local store; so I lack a sense of when should I crack the relic or surgical something. (most useful sb against them I'm using: relic, surgical, grafdigger's cage and nimble obstructionist, also with the usual 4 contortions)
Also, I bought a crucible and I plan to use it in SB, at least against UW control it seems useful, but it can also be used to destroy manabases. I'll use it with a tectonic in SB, could anyone tell me the type of matchups where you definitely need to side them in?
Thanks in advance.
How does this compare to u/w control?
Aug 24, 2018Posted in: Control
u/w control seems to be pretty hard vizier humans elves and jund arent too bad but i played against u/w control and basically did nothing just wondering what to do
