    F2F Hamilton modern open was won by Hogaak, with two copies of the deck placing in the top 8.

    Rhe report says they were surprised it was not played more, being so dominant: "We had two copies of the deck in our Hamilton Top 8, and from where I’m sitting, that number is actually pretty low for how good this deck is compared to the rest of the format."

    Either buy it now or sell it now, I'd say.

    PS: many decks in the top had GY hate in the main, plus extra in SB. Examples: both phoenix 3x surgical main, 3x trap in SB. 2nd place Jund had 2x ooze main, 4x leyline, 1x nihil, SB.
    you know how many players was there? Can't find this information

    You all know I am against bans normally, but this time hoogak need to go. I use 4 relic main and 3-4 surgicals in my side, but this doesn't helped me and they laugh about. Turn 2 you see 6 creatures like me last time is fair? Even I used surgical? At this moment I have 1 land in play and this without Altar... So I think hoogak needs to go. Dyed turn 2 and 3 and I was not the only one. If they don't ban it, I will use 10 gravehate side and main next time to have a chance

    Little sandwich bevore going sleep and watching next match... It is again Phoenix amulet. Never see in my life so often same decks. It is unbelievable. Someone nows how they search people on camera? Only rankings? Why they don't take other decks if they see again same? Where is Tron? I thinked it will be floated with Tron everywhere?

    I will answer you with next match: Phoenix versus amulet. Now I need to sleep, but each deck today on stream I see included uw or Phoenix. I think overall I heared it was only 1 without. We talk about 12 matches. Even then I say nice to see blue. So please, blue is strong. I hope we can stop it now

    And now uw again versus Phoenix again. Is this our new meta now? Maybe better as watching Tron, lol. Can't wait seeing metashare of decks tomorrow Edit : great war between Narset, Jace, teferi versus Saheeli... All this cards was new blue cards together with a lot of opts used from both players. Please accept what wotc did to blue

    I don't say instant 100%. OK again scg, I see Saheeli in side too in same Phoenix playing at this moment. You can if you want use her in uw and grixis too. Don't be greedy guys and look at a lot of other archetypes with no chance of using cards, even if it fits same colour. Hell even u turns can use both examples I watching at this moment in a different archetype. Same with force and charm. It is sure more easy using blue cards in a lot of blue decks compared for other cards and colours. Blue as colour is less specific, even decks using them are very different. Strange

    I don't ask, I am happy about and yes it is specific... Blue not (less then others in a context) Most blue cards spoilered you can put in each blue deck, fine or not? New force as example or blue charm, you can use in merfolk and in uw and in Phoenix as side/main without problems if you want, same with opt not long ago, put merfolk out and grixis in... So why some are not happy and hyped? I can't see a reason. Most people like me need specific cards, blue not so much compared to other decks. This is a huge positive point for them too... Thanks you talked about. They have more synergies as other colours I think, so it is more easy adapting new cards in a lot of decks with blue. It is even easyer as with colourless cards for colourless decks, is this not strange? Time to enyoy new power of blue and be more positive Edit: scg stream I watch and see Narset as 2 on side of Phoenix. That's what I mean, easy to use a lot of cards with blue in a lot of blue decks

    Can't hear it anymore. Blue gets so much stuff. I get nothing for my eldrazi stompy this time till now, but it's OK because this happens sometimes. But if we look at blue, there is no set, standard or premium, where they don't get great cards


    You got Karn.
    Tron + red stompy get karn. We tested it and it seems it is not worth even we are not finished testing. Most of us get away now from karn. By the way, it was last set. This time 0 cards. You hear me crying? It's OK. Compare this to blue mage. Even 2 great cards after half spoiler, they come and say it is not enough and not good. Even they get in last 4 sets 6-8 great cards, most maindeck. OK not all of them do this. Some are happy like it should be

    Blue doesn't need more help. I know that folks like CFP will point out that URx is doing much worse than UWx, but that's not a plausible indictment of blue's viability. That's just a complaint about a specific pairing.

    Remember when diversity of blue reactive decks used to matter? And how a deck was banned over such a view? I guess that doesn't matter anymore right? Just "shut up, take UW and like it"?

    Hopefully these new tools will give some help to decks that are not UW, and I know damn sure that I will be pushing that myself. But it is absolutely justified to complain about that considering all of the past actions and explanations given to us over several years, as well as their desire to push blue reactive decks in general and promote the diversity within those decks. Instead, they let them flounder for 2+ years and then exclusively make UW the only playable control color. So much for "diversity." I guess it wasn't really that important to suppress and supplant similar decks.
    man what you are talking? You have UR Phoenix, you have UW control and even grixis Shadow. Should we play now 5 different tier 1 decks all with blue? I don't understand it, really. So many blue everywhere and still not enough?? Even if I don't talk about esper, storm, jeskai, ad naseum, blue Tron.... It's enough man. You have tier 1-tier 252 full of blue P. S ON STREAM SCG Jeskai control versus Izzet Phoenix at this moment. I see 6 lands, 1 field, 1 mountain, 4 which makes blue. What this mean to you?
