Apr 12, 2018I definitely agree with you about Shalai, Voice of Plenty. It would add a lot of late game and is good at keeping us alive until then. I am guessing 1-2 will be correct due to legendary. This plus finks seems great, do we start running Gavony Township again?Posted in: Midrange
Apr 5, 2018My list is the same as the centralized list in the primer, I've been playing that list since the goodies of Push, Flayer and Tracker were printed and it has been working well for me as long as I dodge Tron and Eldrazi. Also what do people think of the new spoiler card Damping Sphere? I think we definitely want some number of this in our sideboard, it hoses storm but more importantly, it makes Tron and Eldrazi play fair, shoring up some of our worst matchups. I plan to cut the 2 surgicals from my SB for 2 of these and maybe trying to fit a third in, hoping that fulminator into surgical does the job has always felt bad and I do not think I will miss the GY hate as I will be running 2-3 ooze and 2 nihil spellbombs main.Posted in: Midrange
My current SB with the centralized list is:
Apr 5, 2018After that post, I went to modern thinking that the deck just couldn't hold up anymore although I managed to go 3-1. FYI I am running the centralized list.Posted in: Midrange
The first match was against grixis control and I went 0-2. At no point did I think I would be able to out-grind this deck, they just have too much late game with tasigur, JTMS and Kcommand, I tried siding in Gideon AoZ although trying to fight the late game felt bad.
The next 3 matches were burn and two mardo pyro lists and I 2-0'ed each match. In these games, lingering souls really did a lot of work, mainly stabilizing the board until I found removal, so I was still happy that I was running white. Siege rhino though felt like it did very little other than against burn, it always just ate a removal spell after investing 4 mana into it.
So I have also decided that the low to the ground BG splash white deck is probably the way to go. Lingering souls is still an amazing card for BGx and there are two lantern players at my LGS so stony silence is worth playing white for. The reason I want to go lower to the ground is to get under the other midrange and control decks running JTMS and BBE, I don't think there is another option for beating them as now they do just out value us.
Apr 3, 2018Hi everyone, I have been playing this deck for years, ever since you would just jam 4 rhinos into your deck, although my question is that is anyone still playing abzan? I'm just worried that jund does what this deck wants to do but better now, so what have people been doing to keep this deck relevant?Posted in: Midrange

So this is my plan. I feel like a 3/3 split of push and path will be a good place to start as any fewer paths and we will have trouble with tasigurs and wurmcoils. And I am going for Flayers because I don't like the idea of bob with 2 Tasigurs and in the Tron MU flayer can dig for sideboard answers faster than bob.
Dec 27, 2016In my experience LotV has been quite bad, as she is not effective removal against decks with mana dorks and kitchen finks and then her plus isn't particularly good against eternal witness. Removal has always worked out better than discard for me if your sideboard has plenty of golgari charms and the like.Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven
Dec 6, 2016So really it is either get hold of a bunch of fulminators or go back to playing bogles which is my other modern deck, the meta I am in is literally 40% tron so just hoping to not play against them isn't really an option. I have seen Surgical Extraction mentioned before but to me it does seem a bit too wishful, hope they discard a land to Liliana then draw the 1 of extraction. Thanks for the opinions though.Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven
Dec 5, 2016I have recently moved and there are a lot of tron players here and I was wondering if anyone has found a good way to deal with tron. I am still playing the siege rhino version of the deck so am a bit slower, I am just after some advice on cards to help against tron. So far pithing needle has acted great so far but I feel like some luck was involved in that, they played O-stone without activation mana so I could needle it then ult Liliana a few turns later and the second boarded game I thoughtseized them and saw 3 threats, one land and ancient stirrings, so I needled the map they had played and they didn't draw enough lands before goyf got them. So has anyone found a concrete strategy to help even the tron MU?Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven
