    The mana would only go away if you switched the phase of our turn. If you tapped for mana main phase then untapped it as part of combat then tapped again you'd only get two mana. Otherwise, it would make four mana

    These look wowed as hell. I get that they're trying new things borderwise but oh man I had trouble actually reading the title of the card

    I'm on the more classic Kevin jones list with only two pyromancers. Is it worth it to switch out pyros for deaths shadow if I don't run 4 thoughtseize?

    To me it seems young pyro is very good in the current meta, the tokens can chump for days...

    Sorry for double post I didn't mean to stop at "you need ramp" hahah

    Metallic Mimic and Gauntlet of Power would work good in your deck.

    As for the ramp, I only really know the modern legal things. That being said, Utopia Sprawl and Birds of Paradise are pretty budget and would be cool

    Higher cost for a lower quality product. Sign me up!


    Lmao.

    In all seriousness I am not a fan of foils really. The only things fools I do like are the promos that have the wotc lightning streak thingy on the bottom, it looks pretty to me

    I was able to borrow 3 Snapcaster Mage from a friend last night to make a poor man's version of my deck build while I wait for MM17 to release to get the Tarn and Snaps. I also have some of the deck coming in the mail so I ended up using 4 Tasigur, a playset of Bloodstained Mire, and a playset of Watery Grave. Still even with a substandard build I placed 2nd!

    Round 1: GW Tron 2-1 WIN

    I'm able to counter his early search and keep him off of tron. I land a tasigur and take him for the win.

    Round 2 he lands a turn 2 Chalice on 1 and I'm not able to stabalize after that.


    Round 3 I have spell snare in hand this time to counter his chalice and keep him off footing. I do a fun bit of magic where I kill his Thoughtknot Seer with his trigger on stack, draw a card, and then reveal.


    Round 2: GR Tron 2-1 WIN

    Another tron player. G1 I flip 2 Delver for an easy win and counter his Kozilek's return.

    Game 2 He get's tron naturally and plays Wurmcoil, Ugin, and then finally Emrakul. I manage to counter the first 2 but not the third for an easy loss on my part.

    Game 3 I disrupt his hand and keep him off tron and kill with a delver and a tasigur.


    Round 3: UG Infect 2-0 WIN

    Game 1: Push the first infect, Spell Snare the second infect. All to easy.

    Game 2: 2 Inquisition and 1 Push, I dismantle 2 infect dudes while having pulled his Blossoming Defense with the first Inqusition.


    Round 4: Scapeshift 1-2 LOSS

    Game 1: He faulters and doesnt end up with a valakut or a scapeshift. I push his Courser of Kruphix and terminate his Prime Time.

    Game 2: 2 Valakuts in his opening hand. Khalini Expedition ends up wiping my board and dealing damage to me.

    Game 3. Thoughtseize and 2 Collective Brutality later I discard out 2 scapeshift. I have him on the ropes and he draws a third scapeshift for the win. Nothing able to be done about it.


    It looks like my store might be cycling back to tron. I was fortunate enough this time to disrupt the tron players early however I feel some sideboard changes are in order. I'm cutting the Inquisition of Kozilek and keeping the playset of Thoughtseize as I feel it is the best all around for hand disruption. I'm going ahead and dedicated 3 sideboard slots to countering colorless spells to start and then I might drop it down to 2. I'm looking forward to finishing the list hopefully in time for our next modern tournament in a week. Here will be my list going forward:






    Congratulations on the result! But you do realize spell snare doesn't counter chalice of the void?? X in mana costs is always zero...

    Someone should rank the decks in order from best to worst
    We lack the data to know the match win%. I tried it in the past, but since you can't replay matches on MTGO anymore you don't know what the losing decks played in a tournament, only the winning ones, so you miss a lot of information. Since they now only report League decks, things became even more complicated. The only way is now to track everything in paper tournaments. It is crazy work, but possible. However, that link is from a PT, where -I think- there is more data available than from regular tournaments. So, since there is no Modern PT anymore, also this option is not really good.


    Ya you're completely right, I'm just saying t was cool. Perhaps there is a way we can calculate win rates of decks vs specific decks, then use the meta game share data in combination with that win percentage to calculate it?
