    Probably the best card in the set.

    Oh wait a second

    I found a cool trick

    Use Nissa, Vital Force to untap it after you got the mana then it will be 8 instead of 6


    No it will be 7. Because it can't be used to pay for itself. Only creatures or abilities of creatures. So if you untap it you just get the regular forest mana.

    Absolute trash compared to the others spoiled. 4 mana, and tap it (which generally means 5 mana, to get 6) Why even bother?

    This affects your opponent's creatures as well. Not a big fan of that.

    Cool ideas, I hadn't thought about using ninjutsu. And I had no idea Cunning Evasion was a card, very good idea! Thanks!


    Yeah I was just looking for ways to rebuy morphs without playing Cloudstone Curio. I tried Sunken Hope but that was way too easy for blink/etb decks to abuse. If my group had anything worth reanimating I would play Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni as well. I may try out Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow alongside Arcane Adaptation. Not sure yet. Because those are really the only great ninjas to play and 4 ain't many.

    I built Kadena as well so here's my suggestions.
    Fallen Shinobi, Phage the Untouchable (insane when manifested), Silent-Blade Oniand Cunning Evasion.

    Banning Looting is the final nail in the coffin of Modern. Hitting a wide swath of decks because people want less combo decks is dumb as hell. Modern will become a wasteland like Standard where 3-4 decks take control of the meta and nothing else will stand a chance. Expect a huge Tron revival now.

    So I say it wins on turn 1 less than 10% of the time, you show evidence it wins less than 10% of the time and I'm wrong? Goldfishing is not a representation of a deck irl. Half those games (statistically) would be the opponent goes first, and could disrupt. You can not brute force the number up that way and claim it as evidence.


    So, again you've replied without your "data". If you had read the post you would have seen how it's much more likely that the true number is well over 10%. The 7.5% number was wrong because it didn't include all the possible turn 1 combos. Secondly, the turn 1 goldfishing stats were done all on the play, so outside of force of negation, there is 0 interaction you could have. Turn 2 goldfishing was a whopping 48% so even if you take some off of that due to interaction, it's still absurdly high and that's with the Vancouver mulligan. With London mulligan it's much higher, the guy said his turn 1 on the play winrate is closer to 20% now. It's laughable that you're talking about evidence again and yet you have still provided none. I went from providing my personal experience to actually providing some data for analysis. You have made statements that you've provided no evidence for, and I provided a decent amount of evidence that what you said is false. I said if you had any data to share yourself, feel free and you didn't. So unless you got something more than just blindly trying to refute what I'm saying, then I guess we're done here.


    I provided evidence and you just said "it doesn't count" (paraphrasing) which shows you don't want to have a discussion. You just want your brute force numbers to be right in this scenario you've created where opponents have no disruption and you always get to be on the play. No use having this argument, the deck isn't banned. Enjoy playing against your opponents who "combo off turn 1 almost every time".

    I hope stuff like Arcane Signet being printed means the broken rocks (Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt) eat a ban soon.

    I didn't make a claim to the deck's overall win rate. You did. I shared personal experience only. Therefore since you introduced the stat the onus is on you to cite it or provide evidence that the number you stated is accurate. You didn't include a sample size, you didn't say if it was pre or post london mulligan rule, and you also didn't address the fact that any deck winning on turn 1 at anywhere near 10% (if that's even accurate) is still easily worthy of a ban in modern.


    Here you go friend. A deck that's less than 2% of the meta, which posts a single 5-0 roughly every 2-3 days. As I said before, you are free to watch people who actually test the deck on twitch. No I will no do it for you. You ARE the one who made the claim that " Neobrand goes off on turn 1 at least once every match I play against it, and quite frequently twice." which is outlandish and supported by no evidence other than your word. You are now walking that back saying you didn't claim anything and shared personal experience, but expect WotC to ban the deck based on your personal experience. Multiple other people have refuted your outlandish claims.

    Is this really a conversation about the actual numbers of a deck in MODERN going off on turn 1? Is there any deck ever in modern that was even capable of winning on turn 1 at all, much less at a 10%? A deck that's winning 10% on turn 2 in modern has a fair shot of getting banned, and no, it was on MTGO, not paper. Not to mention it's a deck that can combo turn 1, that can dodge any way to stop it outside of a 1 or 0 mana blue answer even if you actually get a turn to play something. It's unaffected by graveyard hate, unaffected by a chalice on 1, only slightly affected by a chalice on 0. You do nothing and they either have it or they don't. And for a deck that wins on turn 3 that wouldn't be a problem but it isn't winning on turn 3, it's winning before I play my first land. And I'd love to see your <10% data, make sure it's post London Mulligan.


    <10% was the number came up with from people testing the deck. Please show evidence of you playing on mtgo and losing turn 1 to neobrand more than that. You sound like someone who lost to it 2-3 times and are doom and glooming the entire format based on that.

    Lol are you kidding me about the format being great right now? Neobrand goes off on turn 1 at least once every match I play against it, and quite frequently twice. At least against hogaak, there was a chance to do something, the last match I played, I lost twice in a row on turn 1. There literally 0 percent chance that deck makes it past a major tournament before it gets hit with the hammer.


    If you are playing someone in paper and their Neobrand is going off that consistently they are cheating. It's like <10% to go off and win turn 1.

    which one has the Rocket scientist wife or is this just one person?

    Sheldon is the trophy husband.


    Rich people can't be greedy? Have you ever interacted with people in real life?

    Unfortunately, yes.

    But I think since you have zero evidence it's more likely that greed wasn't a motivating factor here.


    Greed is always a motivating factor.

    You cannot have a 3rd party that exists in the secondary market be in charge of a banlist. It leads to corruption. Prime example unbanning Painter's Servant. Any player who's been in mtg awhile knows the cards that are inherently used around this and can just hoard them, unban servant and sell out.

    It's insider trading and WotC needs to take over the banlist before this gets out of hand.

    Yes, I'm sure that a Wizards employee, a level 5 judge, a PhD, and a dude who writes for SCG weekly, gets an active duty military pension, and has a rocket scientist wife need to skim a couple of bucks by unbanning cards just to flip them.

    That seems like a perfectly logical conclusion.
