    I really like the GP promo basic lands. I also enjoy my prerelease stamped Tasigurs. I've also had a pack foil Tezzeret, agent of bolas for years. I also like my set of gp promo Griselbrand and nationals flooded strands

    in all honestly though, even if modern is a s"linear" as people have been complaining that it is, I've still been enjoying it a lot past few months

    I've yet to see a convincing build of Runaway Phoenix, I'm surprised it's that high in regionals. Is it actually good?


    it's cute but I wouldn't say it's gonna be more than a flash in the pan tbh

    so a couple of the modern diehards at the main lgs I play at were going on how they're "done with modern for now". Didn't get the whole conversation but a big part of their issue is with how linear it is right now

    Been hearing this kind of talk, and seeing this kind of post, for literally 3+ years. It does not appear to affect the wildly and consistently popular Modern format in any discernable way. That suggests to me the format isn't as linear as people claim, and/or people don't actually care if it's linear.

    I think a much bigger peril for Modern popularity is the success of Arena and the strength of current Standard. Arena, in it's current build, is designed to exclude Modern, and it likely pulls people away from MTGO where they would be able to enjoy Modern. As for Standard, a strong, diverse, and engaging metagame will likely pull people away from Modern, especially backed by Arena. I expect all of this results in at least a temporary, perhaps permanent, dip in Modern popularity.


    I can't see them staying away for too long, they've gotten upset with the format before but calmed down. I feel that modern has always been the most popular format since I've been playing comp level magic, mostly because people can become attached to a deck and keep playing it. Then there was the dumpster fire that was standard when Kaladesh was legal, which scared more people away from standard. I think that people are more interested in standard now that it's playable for people more than grinders.

    how playable are Abzan traverse lists right now? decided to try it at fnm last night and I really like it, I just don't know if it's worth trying that or focusing on my other options for GP Toronto next Feb. My other options being GDS, 4c traverse shadow or Mardu pyro. could also be convinced to sleeve up Jeskai or blue moon again

    I'd probably be fine with birthing pod or twin being unbanned and stirrings and stinkweed imp being banned

    so did Creeping Chill put dredge back into top tier status or is it just people trying the deck with a new toy?

    Been talking about unbans lately with friends and most of us agree that unbanning twin wouldn't really do much in the format right now. are there any other unbans that wouldn't affect the format much?

    what are the mods opinions on linking to a tournament report I posted on reddit in a deck thread?

    just wanted to ask before doing it just in case
    You can link to another site with content, but we ask that you also provide a sizable chunk of the content on here. If this is a one time thing, instead of just posting the link and saying "go read my writeup", we ask that you put at least an abstract so people can get the gist of it here and understand it without having to click on the link. We understand if you put a lot of work into it and don't want to copy over all of the formatting.


    when I get the chance I'll post an abstract of it with actual content then, thanks for clarification

    The best part about Stirrings ban is that no deck has to die because of it.

    Amulet / Eldrazi / Tron - all switch over to Adventurous Impulse or Oath of Nissa

    Ironworks / Lantern - Glint-Nest Crane

    Hardened Scales - no obvious swap here, probably just more copies of cards it currently plays (mishra's bauble, animation module, ect)

    Obviously, these decks all get weaker - which is ok. They are already among the best in the whole format.



    I've already seen some amulet lists running adventurous impulse but that's probably more as an extra ancient stirrings effect rather than replacing it
