IMO the only time i would possibly want to play a Trinisphere is when i have Tron. And at that point i would rather cast the Statue as it is onesided.
Eggs are a huge part of our Engine and Trinisphere hurts that a lot...

Apr 3, 2019There's already a discussion going on in the Tron reddit.Posted in: Big Mana
I think the card has potential.
Everyone else seems to disagree because it does not impact the board and you can spend your turn by playing a haymaker rather than this.
Anyhow i will give it a try as a 1 or 2-of in my sideboard.
Apr 3, 2019Hello everyone,Posted in: Big Mana
I have been away from Tron for a while now (Switched to Jund and more interactive decks) but in preparation for some MCM Trials and MCM Series Frankfurt i intend to brush the dust off my Karns and give them another spin.
Right now this is the list i am tinkering with:
I am aware of the 61 cards maindeck but i think that All is Dust is worth the extra card.
Other than that, has some new tech appeared? I see a lot of lists running Surgicals but i have never really been sold on them in Tron. Are they really a big upgrade?
Mar 14, 2019Posted in: Combohmm i think so or maybe burning inquiry
I have tried Burning Inquiry and found it to be ok at best.
The missing flashback is a huge deal when you dredge it (losing consistency) and the random discard does not always discard your dredgers. Basically once you start dredging Burning Inquiry is a dead card in your deck.
Jan 15, 2019I played Jund for the first time in a "big" tournament last sunday.Posted in: Midrange
I went 3-4 but had a blast playing the deck. The most disappointing card was BBE. Boarded some of her out pretty much every game. Here is the list i ran, i copied a lot from the most recent Reid Duke video:
Boarded in Huntmaster pretty much all games, Kalitas was also great. Languish did some work for me against Merfolk (Master of Waves) and Spirits. EE felt good against Spirits aswell when they have 2x Drogskool Captain.
Round 1: BG Rock (Loss)
Round 2: Burn (Win)
Round 3: Grixis Shadow (Loss)
Round 4: Burn (Win)
Round 5: Spirits (Loss)
Round 6: Merfolk (Win)
Round 7: Bridgevine (Loss)
All games were super close and i feel i could have won them if i knew the deck and MU better. For now i will change my list as follows:
Still a lot of testing to do but i am excited to experience learning a new deck again
Dec 5, 2018I finally bit the bullet with UMA coming up and preordered 4 LotV for 60€ each (HYPE!)Posted in: Midrange
So i am going to give them a try in Mardu first before buying the rest of the pieces for Jund.
My list looks pretty much like before except i traded Rabblemasters for Lilianas and cut the last Arid Mesa as i have higher black requirements now.
Really looking forward to giving this list a try. First time playing Liliana in Modern and i am really excited!
Dec 3, 2018Thanks for the input!Posted in: Midrange
I just finished thoroughly reading the primer and i noticed that i am running 3 K-Command instead of the "fixed" 2. So i could cut 1 K-Command, go down to 6 3-Drops which would work better with 24 lands and cut one Thoughtseize. So i have 2 new slots. I can imagine running one Brutality and maybe something spicy like 1 Tarfire? I am really excited about all the options in this deck!
Dec 3, 2018Thanks for the insight!Posted in: Midrange
About the 3 Surgicals: I just feel like they are really that good at the moment. I played 3 in Mardu Pyromancer and it gives game against Dredge, KCI and Phoenix decks. In Jund, combined with Fulminators, i feel like they are also good against Tron. I mainly play(ed) Tron and atleast that was always my view on it.
About Brutalities: Yeah. I know. I would love to play some but i just found nothing to cut to make room for them. Hearing that 6 Discard is the standard i will probably cut one and jam in a Brutality. Would you cut an Inquisition or a Thoughtseize? I am leaning towards Thoughtseize as it feels like the worse hit off a BBE?
Dec 3, 2018Hello everybody,Posted in: Midrange
I am currently putting together Jund as my next Modern deck. I am not new to the format and have plenty of experience with other archetypes but i am somewhat new to midrange. The problem i have is that there seems to be a lot of variation for the mana bases and card choices in general.
I have seen lists running 4 Raging Ravine, others only run 2. Some run Twilight Mire, some do not. Is there a general consens on when and why to play X of any land?
My current list looks as follows:
Nov 28, 2018Posted in: MidrangeHow did the MU's go? Did you get to be on the play game 1? What part of the meta you reckon Liliana, the last Hope lines up well against? (I have yet to acquire this card.)
Against Merfolk i was on the play. The games were somewhat easy. Maybe my opponent just kept weird hands. With the tons of removal our deck feels very strong, the only worrysome moment would be if they have a Spreading Seas and atleast 2 Lords to make their creatures Bolt proof and unblockable. Other than that it is very straightforward.
Against Bogles i won game 1 on the play because i had discard on turn 1, tons of Souls and Pyromancer token to chump and eventually win in the air with Spirits. Game 2 Blood Moon was a winner because it screwed my opponent super hard out of pumping 2-3 auras per turn. Also Explosives + Surgical is great against them as they only have 8 dangerous threats in their deck.
Not much to say about the UW Draw. Either you manage to rush it with Rabblemaster or you get Terminused out of the game. Pretty boring MU in my opinion.
Scapeshift and Dredge were horrible though i just did not see any Blood Moons against Scapeshift and no Gravehate against Dredge. I feel like those are "Draw or Bust" Matchups.
Jeskai "Can't Lose" was actually a fun game. It got super close and in the end my opponent won with burn after i went to 1. Discard and a Clock do the trick as so often.
About Liliana: She is great against Merfolk, Humans, Spirits, sometimes even Jund, the mirror... Either killing a creature every turn or buying back a Pyro/Reveler/Rabblemaster is a great deal for 3 mana. She is easy enough to cast to warrant a permanent SB slot, maybe even MD if you expect a creature based meta, in my opinion.
Nov 28, 2018I have played a modern tournament last sunday finishing 3-3-1. Started off with solid 3-0-1, then proceeded to get unfair Matchups.Posted in: Midrange
I can not remember the last MU at all but it was a win:
UW "No Wincon" Control (D)
4c Scapeshift (L)
Jeskai "Can't Lose" (L)
This was my list:
I was very happy with my maindeck, especially the MD Rabblemasters did a lot of work. Having a clock that goes from 1 to 6 is really nice.
In the sideboard i came to dislike the Experimental Frenzy a lot. It is just WAY too slow and does not synergize well with Reveler and Looting.
Hazoret felt a bit clunky and overkill with the MD Rabblemasters.
I have already exchanged these cards with a 2nd Wear//Tear and 3 Molten Rain. That feels more "at home".
If you have any specific questions, ask away!
Nov 21, 2018I slept a night over it and i think in the current meta an overall more aggressive approach may be the way to go.Posted in: Midrange
Between Hazoret from the SB and Rabblemaster from the MD i think this list packs quite a punch and is also more resilient to gravehate such as Leyline which can turn Reveler from a 10/10 to a 1/10 very quickly.
Nov 20, 2018As a Tron player myself i have to say that a Turn 3 Blood Moon followed by one Pyromancer or Reveler is really not worrying at all.Posted in: Midrange
I always board in Nature's Claims so Alpine Moon might have the same problems as Blood Moon (that is dying very fast) but if you play smart and play Discard on Turn 1 and A-Moon on Turn 2 followed by something like Rabblemaster oder Hazoret on Turn 3/4 it's looking a lot darker.
I like the idea. I would be worried about a deck that has cheap disruption followed by a fast clock like Rabblemaster.
