    Seems like maybe this could move out of the "Deck Creation" area of the forum now Smile

    Wanted to mention that clique "counters" terminus. I don't know if anybody's still playing the bant version with quellers.

    Hard on the mana. But probably the best maindeck answer to UW right now


    Any particular reason people are off Bant with Spell Quellers? I've been wondering this for awhile now actually, after seeing Hoogland stream it a few times, it seems really solid.

    Working on sleeving the deck right now. Curious to how it will play, especially for me as a long time Affinity player.

    Currently I don't have Horizon Canopies. Any thoughts on a good replacement? I could add W/G 'duals' but maybe 2 more Blinkmoth are more usefull...


    I would just add two more Forests, to be honest

    UW is a horrible match up for Hollow One... where is this 50/50 meme coming from? UW has a ton of very favorable match ups right now. Hollow One, GDS, Affinity and Modular, Humans is decent, same with KCI.

    It might be the best deck in Modern right now

    Gargadon is great as a sac outlet that can't be interacted with. Prevents stupid stuff like Karn exile into Ugin, or bolt on Seer into Path. It's marginal but the utility can come in handy on occasion, that's why I'm on 3/1 right now. The scry from Seer is the real deal though, it allows you to dig for the Bushwhacker swing.

    The manabase for the B/R version has never been an issue, I don't think that justifies the 4x Gargadon at all really. And personally I'm on a Swamp as my basic anyway. There's a slight Blood Moon factor, but more often I've found that in matches where I need to protect my life total and fetch a basic, I'd rather have the third source be black instead of red.

    There's been a lot of tinkering with this deck going on in Discord, and I've personally been running it for about a month now. In my opinion, and this might sound a bit crazy, but I think the pros (besides Nagro) were all a bit behind with their technology. The whole Bomat/Hollow One thing was dumped early on, for example. Nagro introduced Bitterblossom into the board, which I think is pretty genius, but personally I think his 4x Gargadon rather than Viscera Seer is wrong. I'd look at his list for a good example:

    Edit: I've been liking a 3 Viscera Seer 1 Gargadon split a lot.

    Bridgevine has a serious issue against other creature decks. Affinity and Spirits both have evasion and can sac their own creatures to exile Bridge, as well as brutal sideboard cards. Infect has evasion and can be faster since Bridgevine has little interaction. Elves can overrun when left unchecked. Bogles is nearly unwinnable for Bridgevine

    Let the meta correct itself

    I would say Punishing Fire as well. It would be a relatively benign card in this format, but still give a slight boost to some fair decks

    To be fair, the Bridgevine player has had some really great draws.

    Also the deck is fairly poor against creature decks with some sort of evasion, like Bogles, Affinity, Infect, Elves... Probably a great pick for this weekend with the pros picking the more established “tier” decks

    So just ban KCI. It's stupid that it enables plays to beat hate cards because it operates at mana speed

    Tron is probably the only Ancient Stirrings deck that would be fine with Oath of Nissa. Banning Stirrings just kills a bunch of tier two decks
