    Corey's list looks like a complete joke: 4 k command, 4 cryptics, and 4 field of ruins? I have no clue what he's thinking with deck building like this with so much tension. Field of ruin is probably a 1 and maybe a 2 of in a 3 color control list- his deck building decisions have been really bad the last few iterations he's posted. 1 ancestral visions just makes zero sense in this meta, mardu is a better young pyromancer deck because of all the cheap interactive spells and lingering souls with bedlam value. Casting peeze into cantrips is no where near good enough to compete with the likes of the best decks in the format at the moment anyway. He may be a good player when it comes to playing the game, but deck building and balance are also very important skills to have. No wonder he got almost dead last at the MOCS- he's been way off recently.


    Well, he made it to 13th in a goddamn ProTour with 4 k command, 4 cryptics and 4 fields of ruin, didn`t he? This settup grants a fantastic late-game.
    If you have a good list, post it and we`ll discuss. I don`t enjoy playing the 4th FoR as well. (There`s always room for improvement :p)
    I don`t think JTMS is what we want right now... I`d try the jaces in a more proactive shell, as in a Grixis midrange filled with young pyromancers so my planeswalkers are well guarded...

    New Corey list. No jaces. SB with Young Pyromancer.
    Really close to what I was playing yesterday, dumped the Jaces last week.

    edit: it'd be shameful to not share the article: https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/the-modern-metagame-i-expect-at-hartford-and-a-new-grixis-control-list/

    Hello there,

    Great to have you here, could you share the list, bitte?
    I`m thinking alot about Nimble obstructionist lately. Were you the one using 3x Pia and Kiran Nalaar and 3x Nimble Obstructionist?

    edit> I found the list you were using 5 days ago

    I recently faced Burn, RG eldrazi, dredge and jeskai traft. The burn matchup was OK (using 2 dispel 3 collective brutality, managed a 2-0), against dredge I think I should mulligan more aggressively (went 1-2), against RG eldrazi I was smashed to death and against traft I was 'bogled' to death (the remands make this matchup extra hard, and post-sideboard RIPs hurt as well. Hasn't been a good week...


    How do we feel in relation to Damping Sphere? 2/3 SB?

    I want to try Precognition Field so bad, even if it ends up sucking...

    @PimpDonny seeing a cruel control making 2nd place felt really good

    ponza and tron are giving me nightmares, but I've managed yesterday to beat burn, mardu, UW control and humans...
    I'm thinking about increasing the number of main countersqualls, as they're great against tron, any thoughts?


    Current sideboard (my main list is posted, only recent change was +1 EE -1 damnation)
    2 Fulminator Mage
    1 Engineered Explosives
    1 Ceremonious Rejection
    2 Dispel
    2 Surgical Extraction
    3 Collective Brutality
    2 Disdainful Stroke
    2 Anger of the Gods
