Dec 15, 2018idSurge posted a message on Five powerful monocolored Modern decks that play well against each other.Mono Color is pretty hard to represent a format full of Shocks and Fetches.Posted in: Modern
Martyr Proc, Skred, Merfolk, Mono B Devotion, and...I guess Green Stompy would be about the best I would think of off the top of my head.
Dec 15, 2018There is no way they hit the same price point as 'normal' foils. Not remotely reasonable or supportable prediction.Posted in: Modern
If the print run is there, sure they could come down a bit, but its not going to be normal cast.
Snaps Box Topper on my 3 normal site checks is sold out, at over $200 USD.
It may go down, but its not going to hit normal (100-150) costs unless we want to pretend the box toppers are going to be MORE COMMON and less desired than normal printing foils.
Dec 15, 2018Unless the print run is literally epic in scope, I dont see how the Box Toppers for the 'good' cards, dont hold value. Snaps, Lily, etc.Posted in: Modern
Honestly, if I had a ton of cash, I'd buy up a play set, I think it looks freaking amazing.
Dec 15, 2018Yes, its a pet peeve of mine when people say that those combos, or packages would just 'slot in' to Humans/UWx. They would not. They would fundamentally alter the deck, or more likely still, create new ones.Posted in: Control
Either way, right now I would run a list like Seth's, for sure, though I would drop a Celestial for another Island or Plains, I just dont see the point in 3 expensive lands coming in tapped in a format dropping 2 Hollow Ones Turn 1 against me.

Dec 14, 2018Posted in: ModernQuote from Colt47 »What happens long term if they just keep doing this cheap cash grab version of collectible cards over and over again?
First Print - $100
First Print Foil - $800
Ultimate Masters - $60
Box Topper - $250
So what happens? Well collectors get to hold onto their original prints, and ideally the foils, while others get to play with the cards.
I'd say its about the ideal?
Dec 14, 2018I wish I had premium as Sam Black I believe wrote an article on why the SCG meta is not the same, but the biggest thing to look at for me?Posted in: Modern
There is a huge link between the amount of Humans, and UWR as I mentioned in the first 2 quarters of the year. UWR has several people who grind it regardless at SCG, and are masters of the deck, in a meta that has TONS of Creature decks, compared to GPs, which (especially if we look at North American meta) have more Stirrings.
How many of those Top 8's for Storm are 1 of 2 people as well, or both of the Storm Bros?
I dont know, SCG is soo inbred, running off the echo chamber of their articles, and the people who will play whatever they want, regardless of if its the 'best deck'.
Which is fine. I stomped Affinity and JDS into the ground today with my Esper brew, but I'm not going to pretend I would play it for money.
Dec 14, 2018Posted in: ModernQuote from ktkenshinx »Quote from motleyslayer »there more that I think of it, the more I feel that SFM would be fine, the format has so many answers to it and the equipment it finds. Then there are decks that just don't care about it
I think that Previous rankings of the pillars of the format in both cards and decks are pretty correct, stirrings, looting and vial have all been huge parts of the format this year
I encourage you and others to replace Vial with Hierarch in that assessment. Hierarch is a staple of far more decks, notably Infect and the Company decks. There are decks that play Hierarch and no Vial that remain GP contenders. There are no decks that play Vial without Hiearch in the same category. The closest is D&T/E&T, but it's not in the same category as Infect or the Company decks.
Probably fair, but Hierarch is simply the best at what it does. Vial is unique in what it does.
Dec 14, 2018The thing these kinds of statements do, is just drive me nuts. 'SFM would go in UWx Control/Humans/Spirits'. Have people actually looked at these lists? Do they know how they function? Blows my mind that people continue to make statements like that.Posted in: Modern
