    Some thoughts after looking more carefully . Not sure about hunting wilds with only 1 breeding pool ! Liked the 2nd mountain with the amount of ghost quarter or/and field of ruin in the meta ! not sure for the 2nd farseek , isn’t a 4th bolt or 1 EE MD better ?

    I’m so hyped to see the deck perform !!

    I think it's 3 for RUG, 2 for BtL. I've also been considering that 1 in the sideboard (of Bring to Light). I want to try being able to go up to 3 Anger of the Gods, 4 Obstinate Baloth, 3 Jace for a midrange-style plan post sideboard. Whether or not it's a good idea, I want to try it Grin

    I have been testing an Engineered Explosives in the main and it has been great. Hopefully you have one somewhere int he 75.

    How do we all feel about Izzet Staticaster in the side? In the day of Birthing Pod it was a champion. I have seen a lot of Young Preezys and Lingering Souls tokens in Mardu Pyromancer recently.

    I’ve tried EE in the main et yes I think, it deserve a place en the 75 ! For Izzet Staticaster , with the amount of , Mardu, human , and lingering on the field , I want to give it a try . The only problem is that , it doesn’t synergise well with our sweeper !

    For Jace, I don’t know what to think of it because I really like Cryptic , and with jace , the 4 drop number goes very high !

    2/12/2018 Banned And Restricted Announcement - Jace, the Mind Sculptor is unbanned. Bloodbraid Elf is unbanned.

    I think this means we are back on straight RUGshift. I know I will be testing Jace as a 3-of. Being able to slam him turn three to either Brainstorm or bounce a creature sounds tasty.

    Anybody with a potential list?

    Yep. This is great news Smile

    Yeah !!! big news for US !!! \o/

    Thanks , yes I’ve tried repeal at first , but since the change of rules for the double face cards , it’s less good I think ! EE was the replacement, because of the heavy meta with humans, DS , etc... I’m trying it now to help us in this matchup wich are difficult! It can also destroy bloodmoon even if there are 2 of them ! But I aggree with you that in somme matchups it’s a deadcard !

    For supreme will , same thing I love the card ! But in the current meta here in france , it’s a bit slow ! And I’m trying to take the deck to GP Lyon in 2 weeks , so I am trying the 1/1 split with izzet charm for card like thalia, meddling , liliana etc... and for the last part I’m recently trying 1 abrade in place of the 4 bolt main , I don’t know if it will stay , but I wanted to give it a try ^^

    Trying to make this deck great again !! Smile

    Quick question : have you the need for crumble to dust lately in the board ? I’m thinking of cutting it ! What do you think ? Thanks

    "With Caleb Durward's win at SCG Milwaukee last year and a finals appearance at SCG Philadelphia, Bant Spirits should get more consideration as a tier one deck in Modern.

    Jim Davis: Fiction. Modern is a format where knowledge is everything. We hear a lot that knowing your deck inside and out is by far the most important skill in the format, which is why you see good players playing the same deck week in and week out constantly doing well. They know both the ins and outs of their deck, as well as how it lines up with all the important matchups in the field.

    As such, there's a ton of value in Modern to be gained by playing a deck that your opponents will be unfamiliar with. Exploiting this lack of knowledge on your opponents' behalf makes things much more difficult for them, as it invalidates a lot their practice with the deck and forces them to make difficult choices on the fly.

    Caleb's deck is a prime example of this.

    I don't think Bant Spirits is a particularly good deck, but Caleb is a great player and Collected Company is a hell of a Magic card. The deck has a lot of play to it, many proven cards--like Spell Queller and Geist of Saint Traft--and it excels at putting its opponents into tough spots. It's not surprising to see the deck do well, but I doubt it could put up consistent results.

    Gerry Thompson: Fiction. There's the whole "ham sandwich theory" going on here.

    Caleb can play good Magic and basically never plays "real" decks, so eventually he's doing to do well, even if he were playing a ham sandwich. If literally no one else can win with a deck but him, it probably means the deck isn't very good.

    Merfolk got some new tools in Ixalan block, but you rarely see the deck because it's a worse version of Humans. Any tribal deck is probably going to fail the same comparison, and Bant Spirits is no different. »

    It made me very sad ... snif... Frown I had some hopes after Caleb performance for this deck in the GP Lyon .... but now I’m afraid ...

    Hello, thanks ^^

    Yes abrade after tests gonna stay in the board, it did a great job ^^

    For the 2 scapeshift , I was running 3 since the beginning , but with SFA ( and supreme will ) , we are digging much deeper , that’s the reason i’ve tried with only 2 copies , up the SFA to 2 copies ( wanted to see it more frequently and as you say, with the may close you can have 2 on board , one flip and the other as a « scry 1 » ) ; and it ’s been doing great so far !
