    Anyway, I doubt we see changes unless Phoenix makes like 4 out of the top 8 of MC London.

    Surely they will print some answers on Horizons.

    Breaking news: MTG has a lot of variance. Sometimes you go X-0 because you have nut draws, opponents have bad draws, you play against your best matches and so on. Sometimes you draw your sideboard, sometimes you don't.

    If you wanna play a game with little to no variance play chess, where skill is much more important.

    That being said cantrips help reduce variance, that's why lots of combo decks use blue and why WotC has nerfed them and banned them, why black no longer gets good draw engines and so on.

    Looting and Stirrings reduce variance, that's what everyone wants to do in order to win. Your options are to either build a deck that can be as consistent or play the same deck as everyone else.

    Get one or two of the challenger decks coming out next month, then after playing them decide which you like more and would like to upgrade.

    Personally I think the Izzet one will also be the one with more staying power going forward.

    Hello guys! Looking at the current modern meta I am thinking to give tokens a new try! I took a look at the SCG list in the previous page but I am surprised not to see Fatal Push! Any ideas why it has not been included?


    There is one inn the sideboard I think, buut mostly because we have Path to exile and you sideboard in Wrath of god or similar vs creature decks.

    Hidden Stockpile and bitterblossom. Obviously dropping Big Elspeth after a Visitation would be nuts.

    Nevertheless be aware that even in a deck full of token generators as BW tokens (check the primer in Modern-Established-midrange) playing diving visistation might prove difficult.

    I personally think that this set will have quite a few cards that were7 given errata when they changed the 'redirection rule' and made Planeswalkers Legendary that are not Modern legal right now.



    Nahiri, the Lithomancer in modern? that would be cool.

    Ally color Swords sounds awesome, they could very well be SD cards for specific matchups, specially the WU one.

    Will be cool to start thinking about which abilities they could have.

    Tezzeret is missing, my guess is that from the stained glass pictures there are 5 that already have PW in GRN and RNA and wont get new cards, so maybe 5 are missing?

    Or Bolas killed Tezzeret before the war?

    Legacy can't grow because of the reserved list. So modern is and will continue to be the non rotating format of choice for the great majority of players. And making sets as Horizon will only invigorate it. My guess is they don't want to repeat the fate of legacy (with the reserved list) and they will keep it healthy with reprints from time to time and making the pool larger with the horizons sets.

    Also looking forward for Standard+ which would be the old extended (4 to 7 years of cards).

    I think our perspective is also influenced by past experiences. I am a returning player, left the game 14 years ago. I have been playing modern since November of last year, first with a budget white weenie humans deck and now with tokens.

    My experience with the format is positive, but again this must be very meta dependent, the only deck I truly hate is Tron, but definitely modern is a much more interactive format that what I was familiar with from old extended circa 2005 and before. Cards are much less broken, and you don't have blue dominating everywhere.

    My guess is this very meta dependent. If my LGS was full of storm, titan and other combo decks I would feel bad about playing, but I play mostly jund, rock, spirits, humans, burn, dredge, jeskai control and GDS so for me is quite interactive.

    One card that could work is Battle Screech discarding it to Collective brutality and them using the flashback next turn.

    As for the match ups, dredge, jund, rock, burn are quite good for BW tokens (if you pack auriok champion mainboard), humans is also good, spirits a little more even.

    I am side-boarding lost legacy which is great vs combo, also runned halo. We have access to lots of good sideboard cards, the problem is selecting 15 for such an open format.

    Orim's chant could make Wu control too strong?

    BW tokens made top 4 in Starcity Classic, the rest of the top 4 are the worst match ups but great result, the huge amount of dredge in the meta really favors the deck http://www.starcitygames.com/decks/Star_City_Games_Classic/2019-03-03_modern_Syracuse_NY_US/1/

    My predictions for what we'll get:

    Astral Slide, Diabolic Edict / Innocent Blood, Shardless Agent, Baleful Strix, Counterspell, Flametongue Kavu, Rishadan Port.

    My predictions for what we definitely won't get:

    FOW, Daze, Wasteland, Gush, Dark Ritual, True-Name Nemesis.

    Exciting times guys.


    Like that.
