Jun 30, 2019I mean, while its true Hoogak didn't have extreme numbers dont forget people were outrageously prepared for it. We're talking like 7-9 hate pieces in a bunch of decks, this by no means reliquenishes Hoogak being problematic.Posted in: Modern Archives
Jun 30, 2019I mean, Phoenix is definitely a quiet offender. It had fantastic results at the MC tournament, but due to limited I don't think Phoenix was properly represented.Posted in: Modern Archives
I very much think faithless looting is becoming an issue for modern and could go down the road of Probe. No, faithless looting is not to nerf Hoogak decks, it's an overall meta health issue.
Jun 29, 2019Haha, Hoogak swings for 17 on turn 2 against burn, and Reid Duke on commentary says that wasn't even the best hand.Posted in: Modern Archives
This is definitely worthy of an emergency ban.
I don't even know what should be banned, I think it'll honestly take both pieces of something.
Hoogak was an extremely horribly designed mistake, and they printed this for modern so there's no excuse to say it slipped their radar.
Jun 26, 2019I made out like a bandit for the foils I neededPosted in: Modern
2x foil Wrenns for 90 a piece, 2x non foil for low 20's, 2x foil Plague Engineers for 6 a piece, 2x Collector Ouphe foils for 14 a piece, 4x Seasoned Pyromancer for 45 a piece.
Jun 26, 2019I think hoogak will be banned in order to avoid eldrazi winter on camera at an MC. Unless it completely flops this coming weekend in results.Posted in: Modern Archives
The deck is broken. I dont need more convincing. This isnt some cute plays with shadow or Phoenix. The deck is very much busted. You stick s leyline or jailer or 100 percent lose. Reid Duke on camera last night had no issues facing fast decks with it for a turn 3 win.
Deck is getting banned, let's not do this foolishness again, we all said to give eldrazi a chance for data collection. This is easily a tier 0 deck. Ban it. Its not healthy to see 8 or 9 gy hate in people's 75.
Jun 19, 2019Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from BloodyRabbit_01 »By the way, right now Jund isn’t even a competitive Magic deck.
If I'm going to prioritize a main deck card, I would prefer Veto or Pierce. I think both of those are better and more versatile than Force. Seems fine in the side, but far from "modern's saving grace on a pedestal" that people make it out to be. I didn't realize that was so damn controversial.
Let’s keep it at facts. Facts say that Dovin’s Veto is the less versatile between the cards you mentioned, cause it has a fringe application only against Ux based strategies. You know what stops people from doing unfair things in Modern? A cc 0 Force of Negation.
Why do you say that? Jund has been fantastic from the new set. Wrenn is very much the real deal. Seasoned Pyromancer is huge value. BBE has been cut down to 2, some are debating on 0. Jund's actually feeling better than it has in a very long time.
Jun 14, 2019While I'm not demanding a ban for this new deck, I think it's extremely problematic that the format feels it needs to run 4x Leylines and 2x other pieces of grave hate in the main or side to beat Bridgevine. Like, even if this is what it takes to hate the deck out, that says a lot. It kinda seems like a systemic issue with the format, too.Posted in: Modern Archives
Could and will this deck be hated out? Sure. Does this mean the moment you switch off Leyline/RIP and just down to 3 to 4 gy hate that you'll lose a tournament to a Vine deck? This isn't healthy.
WOTC needs to think of a creative way to deal with grave decks.
Jun 1, 2019Urza is a broken EDH commander.Posted in: Modern
Sigh, this set is going to rob me of money. I plan to buy 4x foil Seasoned Pyromancers, 2x Foil Wrenns and 3x Foil Unearth.
I don't usually have to really update foil Jund stuff in most sets, and most aren't mythic rates.
I feel like Wrenn looks SO good and very underestimated. It's 2 mana for a grim lavamancer stapled with CA and an amazing ult.

"The cards where we are wrong and that ended up much more powerful than we had expected are some of the most iconic cards from the last decade—Primeval Titan; Jace, the Mind Sculptor; Stoneforge Mystic; Bitterblossom; Bridge from Below; Tarmogoyf; etc. These cards are not always the most fun to play with or against, and we have subsequently had to ban them from some formats, but the cards still exist in the same form they did when we printed them."
Prime Time - Fine in Modern.
Jace - Fine in Modern
Bitterblossom - Not Good in Modern.
Bridge - Not Good in Modern.
Goyf - Fatal Pushed in Modern.
If thats the metric, SFM comes off next announcement.
Dude, they're not unbanning SFM. UW being this good makes WOTC too hesitant to do so. SFM will be banned for several more years, they've made this very clear, whether you agree with their logic or not
