Mar 3, 2018The pros are not going to break anything.Posted in: Modern
A bit out outside the scope of this thread, but this is a type of shell that could work well with JTMS. I've had good results in my minuscule sample, and in any case, it's a fun deck that plays cool cards:

Just a little note on that build - I believe that it is a tad bit too reactive. Honestly, from my experience and from watching H0ly's streams and her feedback, the sweet spot is 4-5 reactive (defensive) spells.
Remember that Dive Down doesn't have to be cast reactively. I have used it quite a few times as a proactive trigger for Kiln Fiend or Thing in the Ice. Regardless, I have actually been leaning towards moving Stubborn Denial to the sideboard since not long after I started testing Dive Down. I'm just not sure what to cut (if anything) from the SB to fit 1-2 Stubborn in...
Note: the link in my signature is not my current build. This is: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/bloo-v314-copy-3/?cb=1519994393
I'm totally for keeping pure reactive spells to the minimum possible because all the issues we all have experienced. Dive Down and Shoal are pretty convenient for this reason, we can just fire them off as do-nothing spells if it needs to be done.

I was thinking either because of Anger (which is sketchy against the deck anyway, because of X/4's) or because there's a wish to be able to block big things?
Well +3 is more than +1 The reason I never played Mizzium is I never thought of it, honestly.

I realize I haven't chimed in with the specific setup I have been running in a while, so if anyone is curious, my build is copied below. With the unbanning of Jace and the return of h0ly, I think it's fair at this point to say that we have now progressed to Bloo 3.2

I'm as always trying new cards to see what works best or doesn't. This list here looks perfectly fine.
Mar 1, 2018Well I used to think the deck was trash but now seeing the results and everything it looks like it's good.Posted in: Modern
It works in a weird "reliably chaotic" way, in that it does random stuff but due to high density of stuff it often finds something to put in front of you. It might be 2 Hollow Ones, it might be an Angler with a Phoenix and a Bloodghast, or a combination. And then, while you are dealing with that, which can be easy or not depending on what you are playing, their deck keeps flowing and adding to the board.
Faithless Looting is a very potent consistency tool, in addition to combo enabler.
Bloo obviously doesn't care much, it's in the same category as Titanshift, Affinity, Elves, Dredge, Bogles: they do a lot of stuff I don't care much about and then they die.
I expect we'll keep seing a lot of Hollow One in the near future. I don't think that's bad though, it encourages people to play particularly well suited interactive decks like Jeskai which are good for the format imo.
Mar 1, 2018BR Hollow one sees A LOT of play online. It likely is the one I've played the most against in the past 2 weeks.Posted in: Modern
On 5-0s, unless a deck doesn't appear, we can't know how many 5-0s it has done. Well if it plays Kiln Fiends we can assume it was just me, but a deck like Lantern could have a bunch and just get 1 posted.
Feb 27, 2018I'm likely getting super lucky but I've never won so much with Bloo in my life. I'm 34-14 post-bans so far. So many decks that are popular online and just get murdered by it: Hollow One decks, Bogles, Scapeshift decks, Temur decks, Ponza...Posted in: Modern
I think the meta is still too chaotic to draw any conclusions. Well I guess at least we can assume the sky is not going to fall and the format will be fine?
Feb 25, 2018Another perhaps interesting thought, maybe just variance though. With Bloo, I've beaten many Jaces from grindy decks yet they still have to beat one from my side.Posted in: Modern
Bloo is obviously not the RIGHT Jace deck, but there's something to be said about being the one with the initiative and thus more likely to land JTMS on an empty board.
Feb 25, 2018In my experience so far post-bans (limited, 9 leagues with Bloo and around 10 with other decks), and adding to that what I've watched from other people streaming, it looks to me like BBE is performing much better than Jace, or at least the decks that use BBE have improved a lot more than the ones that use Jace.Posted in: Modern
JTMS has felt more like a good card that could have been in a new set, just a good upgrade. I mean, its impact looks to me to be similar to the impact of say Search for Azcanta.
BBE on the other hand has given me more the vibe "these decks have got something busted". Jund has been greatly improved and even a deck like Ponza, from all I've seen, looks like it just instantly became a legit good deck, as crazy as that idea sounds.
