Quote from szuweq »Hi, i'm playing turn form january 2018 current UR with 3bolt and 1pyroclasm MB. Anyone try:
a)Quicksilver Fountain - it should be good vs Tron, Junk, Jund, Valakut etc.
b)Storage Matrix - good vs deck going wide, but need mana Mardu, Tribal etc.
c) Torpor Orb- stop Humans, Dredge, Elves, snapcaster deck etc.
A) wow, that looks like it may really help us if we can land it early. Thank you for bringing it up, now that I know it exists... I will likely test it out online one day.
B) I have already discussed this card with several of my local players, and it looks like it might eventually find a home in our 75. It wont really affect us until the very late game when we go to swing in for lethal, and by then we should easily be able to bounce our own Matrix. I have never gotten around to testing it but its probably worth a couple hours of someones time.
C) Back when modern was "new" (5-7 years ago) and Birthing Pod was a thing (20-35% of the meta), Torpor Orb was a must have. I'm not sure if enough of the current meta relies on ETB triggers to justify its use. But it will always be an available option, and should be brought up periodically to keep in mind as an option.
