    That would do it. If only we could ramp off the eggs and not just color fix. Going off turn 4 at best is eh compared to other decks

    Yeah but just a thought. That's why I'm working on a list for entering the battlefield instead of the graveyard version that doesn't involve a creature draw engine... Also the stone is a one time use. I'm looking for a way to go off with KcS. Not just use it twice

    So...ive been thinking... if we don't have kci, is there a way we can assemble a 2 card combo to abuse krark-clan stoker? It's 1 cmc cheaper, still adds 2 Mana, but needs a way to untap repeatedly

    I don't rly have a list. I want to get one together but right now I'm having a busy point in life. I work 80+ hr weeks and have my 1 of my 2 kids birthdays this week and we have plans to go to TX so I've been super busy with trying to save money for everything and haven't had time to even put a list together. I did say it seemed similar to Cheerios what the weight difference is you're not relying on creatures to draw you the cards which I think personally is the big issue of that deck. There's too much spot removal in modern being played that kill both sram and paladin. This to me seems like the better deck due to it having less main deck hate

    So has anyone tried enter the battlefield eggs instead of sac outlet eggs?

    What about if I want a random opponent or does it do that? I would like to be able to test this deck and variants along with other decks against anyone who uses forge if they know how to set up games. I just need to build a list

    I know this is off topic but I would like to know something... do you know how to set up a match against another person with a URL on forge? I've got forge as well and I've been using it for EDH matches against the AI and the preloaded decks from different online sites but I would like to play against people I just don't know how to set up a URL to start a game

    Isn't there a devoid card to answer it? Might cost too much to cast. I think it costs 3b

    So if I go to a big event... Is it still reasonable to board s. Blood? I know I've asked this in the past but a lot of what I watch on YouTube makes me feel like it's not worth it in the sb. I feel things grow out of 2 dmg range too quickly now and to have the spot wasted on a card that isn't rly doing much feels bad. Also have the same reason on lavaman... is he still something to main as a 1-2 of or is he just not putting in the same work? I'm working on 3 sb spots atm and 2 are bloods. Outside of watching YouTube, it's been awhile since I've really gotten to play modern so I'm just looking at those who have more time on their hands to play for justification on them. Im currently also on dega burn but slowly am going rakdos with dega/boros sb options. Also trying to stay at 8-10 2 drops. Also, has palm still have enough uses to keep in in the sb? I read an article by Ari lax who feels path isn't right either... How does everyone feel on path? I personally think it's an necessary evil between wurmcoil and firewalker but that's just my thought.

    Also retract and H. recall if in blue.in my breya list I use the reducers to drop everything free and run outcome to bounce everything except reducers. What if we shift from sacrificing and recovering from the graveyard to more of a bouncing to your hand version. That would avoid the graveyard hate and we could use the interest the battlefield draw a card eggs to continue to draw??? It would be similar to Cheerios but less reliant on creatures to draw you cards. Currently from what I see on gatherer, there's 7 eggs that enter and draw with an 8th in the form of Skyscanner (more if you Branch out into creatures of color but trying to stay artifact) we could still run myr retriever and scraptrawler but the enter the battlefield effects would allow us to take a different angle. Any thoughts on this or does it just seem worse than the original?

    So do we have an updated list using whir and reservoir? I'm looking at the idea of building eggs bc I am in love with my breya eggs edh. Are we not running Semblance Anvil? Why not as well? I could see us floating Mana, dropping a paradoxical Outcome and re-dropping everything for free thus making reservoir an auto win or storm count an auto win, or cabal paladin, and guys of the like, an option. Just curious as to where the deck is at after kci banning and what the most competitive version would be. Not worried about budget.

    I think I'd rather just play 3 spells dealing 9 personally and I agree that if the opponent hasn't played a creature by that time or dealt with Swiss beer then they weren't going to win to begin with. There's too much one drop/ two drop removal that, between blocking or removal, there's no way they will allow us to go ham

    TBH I was playing CD bc it was a way to get out of being eidolon locked while also dealing dmg to the opponent. I'd play this tbh in mono red b. I think in mono red I would run more creatures

    Interesting data points from GP Toronto: https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/modern-allegiances-fire-and-phoenix/

    Excerpt from the article:

    "A Skewed Stage

    Ravnica Allegiance brought Burn two potential improvements: Skewer the Critics and Light Up the Stage. Let’s try to figure out whether these cards actually constitute an improvement or not, and if so, how big of an improvement.

    Skewer the CriticsLight Up the Stage
    The problem is that we don’t have a proper control group for one of the two cards. Virtually none of Toronto’s Burn players failed to update their decks with Skewer the Critics. A grand total of five players ran none, and all of them failed to get to Sunday. That may make Burn decks with Skewer better, but it could just as well mean that players who don’t keep up with trends are generally more prone to losing.

    Across the GPs in Port- and Oakland, 17.9% of the then still Skewerless Burn players qualified for the second day. 20% is an improvement but falls within the range of natural fluctuation. I’m inclined to take the almost universal adoption of Skewer as evidence of the card’s merits. Though that is all we have to go by, really. The data tells us no more than that it wasn’t any kind of game changer.

    Light Up the Stage is a more interesting case, if only because we find the perfect control group within our sample. Among the Burn players whose lists are available to me, 45 ran Light Up the Stage and 45 didn’t. This success story is one the card itself couldn’t live up to, unfortunately. Only six players who lit up the stage made it to the second stage of the tournament, whereas 12 of those without Light did.

    Once there, light Burn players again fared way worse than heavy Burn players. None of the versions with Light Up the Stage placed anyone within the Top 100, whereas five of the versions without it did. For reference, here are the lists of the highest finisher with a full playset and of the highest finisher with zero copies:"

    While not statistically significant, 45 decks with and 45 decks without Light Up the Stage is a convenient comparison, if nothing else.


    As the saying goes, "the proof is in the pudding." LUtS didn't do as well as when it wasn't ran. Draw isn't what we want unless there's dmg attached to it. It's been proven over and over again through the yrs that unless it's a crazy draw spell, like T. Cruise, or it deals dmg and draws us a card(s) then it really should be in our lists. I really wish we'd stop jumping on red draw until it does dmg and draws. Til then, we don't want it tbh imo. Even Tobi said that LUtS burn win % is less is a fact from statistics. That's from 2 GPS. I'm good. No LUtS for me.
