    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.
    that's kind of what I thought looks interesting I might pick up the pieces to test it out

    At my fnm and Sunday tournament I went 1-2 had to leave for the last round both times
    Fnm-
    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

    Sunday
    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 think Sarkhan is overrated, but Dragon-Skred is totally playable.
    Spoiler alerts, he isn't. The card is just that good
    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?

    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.

    That's it.

    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

    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?

    does anyone have a guide or match up sideboarding?
    I'm working on this, but I just moved and college is starting soon so this may take longer than I thought. What matchups do you have questions about?

    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

    Gx tron is by far the most popular tron deck out there and it doesn't really compare to mono U tron which is very much a niche deck in the format. The gameplans of the 2 decks are not similar at all. Gx tron seeks to asemble tron asap and slam a Karn Liberated on turn 3 to take over the game. Mono U tron plays more like a control deck that extends the game through counterspells and other interaction, and wins in the lategame due to an unfair mana advantage and big threats. The nut draw of natural tron into turn 3 wurmcoil and turn 4 ugin is possible but highly unlikely in this deck.
    Gx tron has a very linear gameplan whereas mono U tron has complex decision trees regarding when and how to interact, aswell as which threats/answers to tutor for. I think that is what draws people to the blue version over the green version. The green version though, is undeniably a highly efficient and effective deck.
    If you are interested in Gx tron there is a dedicated thread concerning the deck on the modern forum. Happy deckbuilding Smile



    Thanks! at first i really wanted a linear deck because i already have storm and skred red but now that i think about id probably enjoy this more!
