Quote from Dreadnaught33 »Yeah GoST great points. I should maybe try this out at FNM just for fun. Maybe with Knight in it? lol.
Hey anybody have any update to knightfall with vizier combo in it? I'm interesting in testing it.
Quote from Pyromancer999 »Please help me out here. I have a good friend who is objectively saying that push is better than bolt in this deck. I am trying to convince him but at this point I need some assistance convincing him (and myself a bit) that 4 bolt is still correct. Thanks in advance!
Quote from Dreadnaught33 »This article was interesting in talking about both vizier and nissa in modern, I'm going to test with this cards for sure. Also hates on Rhonas which I'm on the fence about. Thoughts from you guys? http://modernnexus.com/comprehensively-reviewing-amonkhet/

... you should get a fetch first and GQ the fetch if you are leading that way - otherwise you're not using all your fetches. The way you do it leaves an extra fetch in the deck.
edit: It's almost never correct to hit your basics/shocks with GQ since that leaves fetches in your deck. Instead, use them to hit fetches (saves some life as well).
edit2: Moreover, if you lead with a GQ instead of finishing with a GQ, you'll be reducing the number of lands in play during your combo sequence, which means you can't insulate yourself with an extra fetch to keep comboing through removal (getting most of the lands out of the deck is still going to be gas even if knight is removed, and you can still hit with a large dork/other critter with kessig).
The sequence I'd suggest is (from the same position of 2 basics in play empty yard)
The exact sequence is different from game to game based on which lands you drew (if you drew all basics/shocks, you'll have too many fetches, if you drew fetches you won't have enough basics/shocks). This is why its important to start by getting 2 fetches in play by either playing one or searching them, and then sort the lands to the front of the deck and sort them into basics/shocks, fetches and other.

2. A more traditional Nahiri+Liliana list - http://www.starcitygames.com/article/34863_Video-Mardu-In-Modern.html
No Path to Exile at all (4x F.Push, 4x L.Bolt, 2x Terminate) is a bit wierd and Collective Brutality as the only life gain option is a bit unnecessary imho as the deck already packs plenty of discard (7x targeted + 4x Liliana) and I'd rather use Lightning Helix.
Also everybody seems to forget/ignore Nihil Spellbomb which would be better than Relic in the SB.
