Quote from Moneymakermich »I've played some modern games this WE at magic fest Ghent and I'd like to share my lessons learned.
The most important is probably that I realized (more) the power of stony silence in the meta. It's great against whirza which is a very problematic match-up. Against Tron it acts preventively against lattice, which I didn't realize previously (lattice and stony into play means no mana for anyone. So if you have a creature and Tron player doesn't, he looses). Not mentioning ravager decks. I'll up to 4 in sideboard.
Stoneforge package confirmed its power. I've tested viridian longbow and indeed I won't take it out anymore. Still not convinced by lightning greaves. Some players use also sword of light and shadow, I haven't tried yet but will very soon because it looks strong.
Infinite life via kitchen finks rarely happened and in the rare cases it did, it wasn't relevant. But I won 2 games thanks to infinite-big carrion feeder, so I'm still not sure whether to drop the finks package or not. I'd like to keep it with 2 finks.
1 eternal witness main was totally useless. So was 1 knight of autumn main (well, this one is never really useless, but it was a weak play).
After sideboard, having multiple knights of autumn is really not sufficient for the whirza matchup.
1 Gavony township main was useful multiple times. I'd like to make room for a 2nd one.
1 scavenging ooze main was very often great, and I've tutored it multiple times. I'll never drop it ;-)
Burrenton was good because blocker against burn and prevents anger of the gods against valakut.
My sideboard against UW control is 1 Vivien champion of the wild and 2 sin collector. It could certainly be better but I don't have a lot of inspiration about other options.
I wasn't always happy when having Shalai in hand, not sure if it belongs to maindeck or sideboard. I currently play 1 main.
Any feedback is welcome
