Quote from Drowsy Emperor »
I believe Shoktroopa was correct in not opting for the sort of hard control that overloads on answers - the way UW attempts to play in Modern or the way Esper is now in Standard. The card quality is just not there in modern in Mono U + Colorless + Phyrexian mana, which is what we have at our disposal.
You can play it of course, just like you can play anything else in Modern, but I don't believe it is the all around best version of the deck. I have watched Pierakor and Shoktroopa play their lists for dozens upon dozens of hours and Shok's deck is just more consistently flexible. He is the better player of course, but that is besides the point - with Pie I find that he either wins hard or loses hard, which is how I envision his deck working in the first place, based on the card choices he makes.

I might try a 1 Briefing, 1 Spell Burst split.
Quote from The Fluff »Hi, I'm currently building this deck.
Just one question to the veterans. How do we win against Dredge on game 1?
Quote from The Fluff »Hmm, what do you need Thundermaw for? Plenty of spirits, lingering souls decks in your area?

Congrats on the good result. Glad to see another person using Glorybringer, I'm also using it because it's ability to get rid of a threat while dealing damage has been useful lately. Very few PTE users right now in my meta, so the pro white of Stormbreath is not as useful as it was before.
Was the Shaman able to hit your opponent? Or did you just use it for the counters / card draw ability? My testings with Shaman ended not so good, but seeing your list made me decide to try it out again.
