It's a crazy Modern GY format where 2 mana GY hate just means Game Over (for the person playing GY hate!)
So far, this is a format where you have to beat UW Control, GY decks (Bridgevine, Phoenix, and Dredge), Humans (for now, might also get run out of the format), possibly Neoform, and whatever the latest Whir Prison Combo deck, and then every other possible thing.

Jun 19, 201910 R sources is a bit light, especially for sideboard with Anger. I've run an Eldrazi and Taxes W build, and while you don't use much main and maybe 10 is ok, it is going to be rough post-board. Also, you do lose a lot of the utility lands.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
If you want to add a color, maybe more like Tom Medvec's deck, rather than the Serum Powder builds? Then again, it isn't the Serum Powder deck.
However you go, though, good luck!
I'm with you. Karn hasn't been good enough to main for sure. It is an interesting out to Artifact decks, however, which we have not had.
I'm not sure about the 2nd Copter, maybe that has to be a Relic of Progenitus now, or even 2 and no Copter, which is just too slow. Thoughts?
I was doing Ravenous Trap, but with 4 Leyline, probably don't need it, especially if I add Relic to the main. I have two spots I have not decided on yet.
Jun 17, 2019Playable in UW, almost everything flies, but it doesn't stop The New Stoopid. Fair card for a fair format, but that isn't Modern. Tmpo/Aggro Control can't deal with the obscene linearity without disruption. Maybe Force of Negation is playable, not sure it solves the issue either.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
May 22, 2019UW can find room quite easily. I think you cut back on -2 Rattlchains, -1 Selfless Spirit, -1 TGoT. Between another 1 drop and more resilience, it seems like a strong addition.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
May 17, 2019I think I am off Warping Wail for the moment. Probably going to test this build, see how it goes. I like being able to get things that fight things out of the sideboard for certain matches. I like Scion and Ugin for the control and mid-range matches. Copter might come out of the main entirely, since I don't like being at 22 creatures, especially since it is really 18 as we can't cast SSG.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
May 16, 2019For those running Karn, the Great Creator, how many are you running? Is it mostly a 4 mana Stony Silence with upside?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I would add, Karn's +1 with Liquimetal Coating is some bizarre land destruction and you can open up some non-creature permanents to being hit by Dismember where we probably won't get Blast Zone to 4 or even want to do that. It would be funny to make Worship a 4/4 and Dismember it. Or a planeswalker.
[+1]: Until your next turn, up to one target noncreature artifact becomes an artifact creature with power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost.
May 14, 2019So what are the builds in testing right now? I'm on this:Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I'm not sure about the manabase. I feel pinched between all of the utility lands. Maybe Zhalfirin Void is the one we can most afford to lose? Maybe I want more manlands? I don't know.
And I'm genuinely unsure about Karn, either Karn. I like Karn, the Great Creator in certain matches, and to just go get something. I like Karn, Scion of Urza against mid-range and control.
Then again, despite being 6 mana, I like me some Ugin, the Ineffable.
May 10, 2019This was the proposed decklist.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
IMO, you would really want:
+3 Selfless Spirit
May 9, 2019It would be nice to think JT isn't pimping, but who knows.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
I posted this because I think it is a novel interaction that has possible applications. Previously I would not have considered Kirin, but it is oddly effective against very land-dependent decks and provides the possibility of multiple one-sided board-wipes in combination with Selfless Spirit. In fact, I think his build is not good because you want 3 of them.
It could just be bad, for the reasons you point out, but I am going to test it (with proxies for now!)
I don't like the idea in the Mono-W Eldrazi and Staxes deck because he took out Reality Smasher to do it, which is kind of crazy.
May 5, 2019redtwister posted a message on Teferi, Temporal Archmage: Chain Veil Combo & Stax MasterYeah, that's my thought for sure. I'm a little on budget (95% not budget, but 5 cards I'm just not playing competitively to bother with, so one of those is now Narset.Posted in: Competitive Commander (cEDH)
I have to say, I really, really wish Dovin, Hand of Control was playable, but that U/W mana symbol...
Apr 25, 2019redtwister posted a message on Teferi, Temporal Archmage: Chain Veil Combo & Stax MasterAny thoughts on Narset, Parter of Veils?Posted in: Competitive Commander (cEDH)
