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.

Gruul Spellbreaker, which has seen some porting into Modern.
Feb 14, 2019The Twin discussion is done, over. There's nothing more to say, it's all been said, we know what's happened and we can't change it.Posted in: Modern
Get down off the cross, use the wood to build a bridge, and get over it.

It's also pretty cheap to build, but that's offset by the fact that it doesn't really share any major cards with any other decks.

Most definitely not going to happen, especially not with Vannifar just being printed.

Well well well.

Strictly speaking, it's mainly because the extra type can pump Tarmogoyfs. Otherwise, they're functionally the same in the deck, since it doesn't run any planeswalkers, at least in the stock lists.

Expect to time out while getting used to the play patterns. Taking the time to think out your decisions will be more valuable in the long run than rushing, though it might burn through tix.
If you play on MTGO, be aware that Amulet of Vigor, Vesuva, and Cavern of Souls are all bugged.
Amulet: If you have two copies of Amulet out, MTGO will try to automatically place all of the untap triggers if nothing else is left to be placed on the stack. You can avoid this by having any other trigger (such as a bounce) be the last trigger you place on the stack. This bug will stop you from getting to activate Slayer’s Stronghold an extra time if you are not careful, which can cost you games.
Cavern: You must name the first creature type on a card. This is currently not relevant, but lists sometimes play Tireless Tracker, which sometimes makes Scout the correct name in real life but not online.
Vesuva: Still works by the pre-Rivals rules. This would be extremely advantageous except you will get your account suspended if you abuse this… so you might want to avoid that.
Article is out of date. They've made some changes now and some of those bugs are fixed.
Oct 26, 2018I gave this deck my first run in paper today. Played against Affinity, Abzan, and 4c Saheeli. The deck is pretty ridiculous. My Saheeli opponent had a Lyra Dawnbringer on board since turn 3 and I still just eventually beat him to death.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
My main comment for this deck is that is is very tempting to keep one landers with this deck, but if you don't have Faithless Looting that, uh. Doesn't work out great.
Oct 16, 2018Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from gkourou »I said multiple times in the previous articles that I believe it was nerfed. And indeed it was.
Also, Probe further nerfed some lower tier tempo decks as well, such as RUG Delver, or UR Pyromancer.
This is fine, because Probe was busted, and I do get that. But wouldn't it be legal for us to ask for a print to help tempo decks, like a better Tempo charm or something else? Maybe a UG card also.
Who knows, maybe the next Ravnica set will cure what ails you.
