    Have the visceral fear that this new mulligan rule will allow Amulet decks to pop up again in our lgs.
    I hope the new rule, does not make Amulet decks too strong..


    As an Amulet player, me too. I don't want my baby banned out from underneath me again.

    I think people are focusing way too much on the 50ish reprints and not nearly enough on the 200ish new cards.


    That's probably true, especially in terms of what cards will actually have impact on Modern. But we can't really speculate on new cards because they're, well, new.

    We can speculate as to what reprints we'll get.

    If Karn is real I'm... unhappy.

    He's a one card combo in big mana decks. 4 mana Karn, -2, get Mycosynth Lattice, cast it for 6. Enjoy not having lands! Grin

    Library might also go into a Dredge list - if you're using a replacement effect instead of drawing (which Dredge is), you don't have to pay any life or put cards back, you just get to do it three times.

  • posted a message on Which decks are terrible matchups for Amulet Titan?
    In general, Amulet has a lot of problems with any deck that can consistently play faster than it. Storm, for example, is a pretty bad matchup.

    Right now, the majority of Modern does not have the same power level of tools, to fit into a paradigm of Xerox vs Prison.


    Really? We've got Phoenix as Xerox and the Whir Prison deck as Prison - while Whir's metashare isn't anywhere near Phoenix's, it's still considered a very good deck and continues to put up results.

    I'll just keep playing Amulet Titan, I guess.

    If Faithless Looting does get banned, it plants Ancient Stirrings firmly in the "best Modern card" category once again (as it was during KCI). Even if it's safe now, I don't think anything is ever fully safe. Frown


    Man I'll just keep playing with the cards that they give me - if they ever knock me out of the format I'll just play Highlander full time.

    I'm amused that Phoenix is considered unfair, while Splinter Twin - despite also winning on turn 4 and being powerful - apparently isn't.

    So, is the version with 3 Coalition Relic, 4 Selesnya Sanctuary, 2 Trinket Mage, and 4 SB Path to Exile just everyone's accepted version of Amulet Titan right now? I came back from a Invitational Cash tournament and Amulet like this top 4ed. Then I also saw the store's best Team player also on that version. What gives?


    So we've talked about this a lot in the Amulet Titan discord, but the summary is basically that Relic is very good when people are trying to Blood Moon you and lets you sneak out turn 4 Titans when you wouldn't otherwise be able too, Trinket Mage can get you Amulets or Ballista or EE and is just a good multipurpose tool, and the Sanctuary and the Paths are mainly because there are a lot of creatures these days which Dismember and Abrade can't hit and Path is just the cleanest tool we have for answering them out of the board. Path can also be a little bit of Blood Moon insurance - Pathing your own dork in response to a Moon and then landing a Titan, for example.

    I was playing Mono Red Phoenix tonight and I lost a match to an opponent who just had Dryad Militant on turn 1 two games in a row. I didn't answer it (probably incorrect of me, in fact) and he turned off my ability to dig with the backsides of my Lootings.

    Hardened Scales is a sweet deck that has a lot of skill testing cards. I hope it wins.

    Can y'all help me out?

    There appear to be two flex slots for value creatures. I've seen these slots filled by the following in 5-0 and good finishing lists:


    At the moment I'm running 1x ranger as the fifth tribe scout. Seems like a great idea. In the other flex slot I'm running 1x trinket mage.

    What's the consensus here? I haven't got many reps with the deck yet and I'm feeling like trinket mage is super slow? Please advise. Maybe my play patterns are wonky.


    Mage seems slow at first, but when you take into account that it's a value piece more than a combo piece, things fall into place. Grabbing a second Amulet can be very useful, certainly, but I like Mage as a way to grab EE or Ballista when you need them while being a body you can just throw away.

    Cabal Therapist looks delicious for my Mardu deck.

    While there's a lot of linear decks in Modern at the moment, I feel like the format is moving back towards being somewhat more interactive.

    My main deck, while it definitely has it's busted draws, is one of the most intellectually enjoyable decks I've ever played (Amulet Titan), and most match-ups are fun puzzles.

    And, well. People are brewing with the new cards - the Sultai Wilderness Reclamation deck is a beautiful pile that is incredibly interactive and skill-testing and while it might not have that long of a shelf-life, the fact that we've got a format where that kind of deck is actually managing to put up some results is encouraging for me.
