    Hi guys.
    This weekend im playing at my local magicplace.
    We have a league that goes a whole year and this is a top 16 fight for a bye at the finals this fall.
    Im going with this list and would love some help on the sideboard.

    These are the decks im almost certain will show up:
    Tron
    Elves
    Monored goblins aggro
    Jeskai tempo
    Storm
    Burn
    B/W prison
    Humans
    Lifegain sisters



    2x Anger of the gods (Humans, Elves, Goblins)
    1x Engineered Explosives (Humans, Elves, Goblins, Prison)
    2x Ensnaring Bridge (Humans, Elves, Jeskai)
    2x Kambal (Storm, Burn, Sisters, Jeskai)
    2x Goblin Rabblemaster (Tron, Burn, Storm, Prison, Sisters)
    2x Wear (Prison, Tron,)

    I have a Hazoret in the main, u should be too becauses ur pairings. if u dont want it, put 1x in Side to included in Tron, Burn, Storm, Sisters.

    The other slots can be GY hate, like Surgical Extraction, Nihil Spellbomb, or Whatever.

    Hope this help u a little.

    Greetings.

    Just a question, you play with 3 copies of Discovery//Dispersal but you can only cast Discovery with this manabase isn't it?


    With the grixis version of the deck, you can play both

    Is Mardu pyromancer still a deck? Thinking of building that one when the meta is unfavored towards my death shadow. Or will it have the same bad matchups as shadow does?

    Should I be looking at burn or combo decks?


    Mardu Pyro is great against all the fair decks. The bad mu are Big Mana decks in general, but you can win even that decks with a correct sideboarding. It's a deck who rewards the expertise of the meta because is highly customizable. For me, is totally underplayed in relation to his power level.

    Hey,

    http://www.starcitygames.com/articles/38174_Electrodominating-Modern.html

    Last deck talks about us, what do you think about ?

    B00NTY


    idk if that will be have good results, but the fact is that all the powerfuls non cost spells (wheel of fate, living end, etc.) starts to increase they prices because of Electrodominance.

    Nice tip! Probabaly replacing the Brutality. Not sure about what else though... maybe one Molten Rain or the Hazoret?

    Maybe the FMage. You have a lot of land hate with the Molten Rains. Hazoret is very good against Tron, Control and Burn (A perfect clock).

    Modern is not Legacy. Modern has a tons of decks with full pack of removals (Even betters than legacy what needs more counters tan removals) and a 5/5 in turn 2 is not that crazy in modern at this times. I'm exceptical with the fact that SFM will be succesful in this format.

    Curious to hear what the Arclight versions are trying to solve. The deck loses to 1) clock+disruption and 2) GY hate. Adding the arclight package doesn't seem to help either cases


    1. Add a main win condition in case that the combo gets difficult.

    2. Add another wincon to make Surgical extraction less impactful. This deck with a SE literaly dies.


    1. you don't have the density of 1 mana/free spells to enable phoenixes reliably. You'd probably have to go grixis for SV and play more manamorphoses. casting phoenixes fairly seems bad

    2. half the time they keep a surgical/gy hate only hand and you just breach them into oblivion. saying that the deck dies on the spot against one surgical is an exaggeration. Also you can play chalice of the void for 1 and cover that angle plus many other angles if you want to go down that road.


    I never say that the arclight version is the way to go, but i think that this decks fails with the hate so hard, and have another win condition is not bad.

    I test a lot this kind of deck, and i think that the best version is the old grixis one, with Serums, Thoughtseize, CB and with out Nourishing. I think that NS packet is so uninteractive and the lifegain plan doesn’t feel complementary with the main wincon, add to the fact that makes the deck “non-flex”.

    Hazoret has a lot more of sinergy with the deck than pw's imo.

    So here's my problem with Modern right now, I can't for the life of me figure out what I want to play. Nothing in the top decks interests me and no cards I've seen that I want to even try to play have a chance in Modern. Right now I'm trying to play the Abzan Fall of the Thran deck from against the odds but that deck is just bad against basically everything I've run into in the field. Can't beat Humans, can't beat Control, can't beat anything that starts killing early creatures. I've tried some GW decks but I just don't want to default to GW Company and try to combo out but nothing outside of doing just that in GW works. Tried GW Death Taxes but again the current meta is just toxic to that deck. I would probably want to consider an Abzan deck but those just don't do well either and I also don't want to invest so much money into goyfs just to not enjoy the deck either. Basically, I don't wanna play the meta but I also don't wanna lose constantly like I'm currently doing and it's to the point now where I just don't wanna play modern events at all because it seems like I'm in a point where I don't have a choice with decks.


    Maybe you can check Mardu Pyro. The deck has a strong midrange/control match up, but falls against tron or dredge. But the flexibility of mardu colors has a lot of chances to improve that mu's.

    You dont want give to your opponent a basic land in a Blood moon deck. I you want a removal with "exile" condition, i suggest you Anguished Unmaking. I put 2 in my deck to improve the Tron mu and works fine, and the card helps 2 remove random enchantments and other permanents.

    Greetings!

    Baleful Strix! I think should be a safe card.
