Jan 7, 2019Is anybody using Urza’s Factory with success? I had a couple games last week where I couldn’t find a threat but could search for all the land I needed and then some. I was thinking about giving it a shot and cutting the 5th forest. Thoughts?Posted in: Big Mana
Jan 3, 2019Got into a debate at my LGS tonight. What’s everyone’s opinion on our matchup with G/W Value Town? I smashed it last week 2-0 easy peasy and then lost to it 2-1 this week. My feelings are, it’s an okay matchup. They have to GQ us and have disruption otherwise it’s lights out. Thoughts?Posted in: Big Mana

2-0 Against Burn
Game 1 won with a turn 3 Wurmcoil on the play
Game 2 had another turn 3 Wurmcoil and he had no path. GG.
0-2 Against Mono-Red Pheonix
Game 1: Died on turn 3 on the draw. He curved double Swiftspear into double phoenix from the yard.
Game 2: Game lasted a little longer but I couldnt find a lifegaining threat in Wurmcoil and Thragtusk. Just got burned out with Fiery Temper and Bolt. GG.
2-1 Against "Tron" Mirror
Game 1: won with turn 3 karn on the play
Game 2: died to turn 4 Emrakul the Aeons Torn off of Aetherworks Marvel. Weird tron deck but I got-got
Game 3: Another turn 3 karn on the play. GG.
2-1 Against Bant Spirits
Game 1: Won with curving Wurmcoil into Ugin on turn 5, opponent's clock wasnt fast enough
Game 2: Opponent had a great mix of disruption and clock, I didnt draw a sweeper, the perfect recipe to beat tron. Side note: Remember that Phantasmal Image CANNOT copy a creature that it enters with off of Collected Company. My opponent tried this and I called a judge, the first judge said that he could do it so I asked for the head judge and the head judge confirmed that Phantasmal Image must copy a creature that was on the battlefield prior to the collected company since it is an "as it enters" effect in which there is no time to respond. Dont be fooled people.
Game 3: My opponent kept a 1 lander with vial and got screwed. GG.
1-2 Againt Burn
Game 1: Had turn 4 Wurmcoil on the draw but it was too slow.
Game 2: Quick thragtusk with no Skullcrack effect, GG.
Game 3: Made a misplay, cracked my sphere when i had a nature's claim in hand when i should of waited to hit it with claim. He had the 4 creature draw and I played thragtusk but he won through it. GG.
2-0 Against UR Pheonix
Game 1: My opponent kinda just durdled with a bunch of faithless lootings. Surprising that i won when my opponent casts 3 brainstorms haha. I had trn 4 tron with endless threats.
Game 2: Opponents hand was a bit better but still kinda durdly. I had turn 4 ulamog exiling 2 lands which he countered with ceremonious rejection. He couldnt counter all my threats and I overwhelmed him. GG.
Overall with the limited experience i have in the new pheonix matchups i can agree that mono red is unfavorable and the UR version is favorable. The mono red version is just much faster and has plenty of reach. Tron is a great deck people, keep up the good work and beat the haters!!
I’d be interested in how you sideboarded for the Phoenix matches. Good job on the results!
Dec 9, 2018Ended up going 3-1-1 for a top 4 finish this week. Still love the deck, it’s been a blast to play. I beat G/B Tron, Dredge and Tooth and Nail. I drew with a B/U planeswalker deck. I have a question though, although I defeated dredge, I was wondering if it was correct for me to surgical his discarded cathartic reunion? The dredge player thought it was wrong, but I kept him off of drawing what he was looking for long enough to win. What are your thoughts?Posted in: Big Mana
Nov 30, 2018Played last night for the first time in a while and went 3-2 for 7th place. Lost to U/R Phoenix and Goryo’s vengeance. The Phoenix game 1 I kept a bad hand and then found the wrong end of my deck on game two. Honestly, the matchup seemed favorable. The goryo’s vengeance game however... I lost on turn 3 game one and turn 2 game 2. Does anybody have a sideboard guise for either of those two decks? I am running a pretty stick mono green list. Thanks!Posted in: Big Mana
Nov 27, 2018In response to the post about losing to terminus. Vines, defense, heroic intervention etc do nothing to battle terminus. Defense grid at least makes them do it on their turn, most likely. Sideboard our some of the cards mentioned above and bring in hexproof threats like Thrun so you don’t have to save creatures with spells. Still loses to terminus, but gives another angle for Stompy.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
Sep 7, 2018Just dropping in to say I played Jund last night for the first time and had a great time. The deck was so much more fun than what I had been playing in the past. I ended up at 2-3. My losses were to Abzan Traverse, Titan Shift and Bogles. Shift seems terrible, bogles player has leyline prior to the start of both games. Abzan was close, but I didn’t have great draws.Posted in: Midrange
Aug 10, 2018I did want to ask a question, with all of the graveyard decks/creatures currently, is Kalitas worth having in the sideboard? I know I’m new here so if that’s been discussed, let me apologize. I guess he doesn’t come down until turn 4, so that could be too late, but his effect is powerful.Posted in: Midrange
Aug 10, 2018Just wanted to drop in and say I’ve played a large quantity of modern decks in the past 8 months. I’ve always admired what Jund brings to he table with being a well built deck and numerous options in each game. I never tried building it just due to not wanting to shell out the cash. That’s all changed now, I traded my two other decks and bought into Jund. I’m here for the long haul, I’m ready to Jund em out!Posted in: Midrange
May 28, 2018Ashen Rider does a lot of work for us from that aspect. We aren’t casting it in the red/black list that I’m trying but it works with both footsteps and through the breach. Inferno Titan gives you the ETB trigger with footsteps but that’s just a 3 mana bolt.Posted in: Combo
