    Because Eternalize removes a card's mana cost as part of making the token copy, he assumed that the same applied from God-Pharoah's Gift.

    I can understand going for a more aggro approach, similar to how UW uses their early creatures. My problem with what you mentioned is that most of the creatures added don't help very much in getting to our end game, they're just kinda aggro creatures. So i feel a bit of a disconnect between them and the end game. Might be worth tuning, if we get some utility low drops from Ixalan.




    I took this in for FNM. Went 2-2
    Beat Zombies and Second Sun Control.
    Lost to Ramunap Red twice.

    Both Ramunap game threes I was 1 turn away from winning.

    People were fascinated by the deck all night. Especially if I didn't win game 1. Then on a game 2 win they would be like, "Oh, so that's what your deck does."

    What could we board to help with Red?

    That's pretty close to how I'd board. I might leave the Titan in since that is the bomb that means the most against affinity. But my usual plan is also to lower curve, so I might do the same thing with that list.

    Congrats on your FNM.

    I haven't had the honor to play against infect, how is it?

    Here is a link to a very good explanation of how tags work.


    [Card]Stone Rain[/Card]
    Will Come out :Stone Rain

    [Deck]2 Stone Rain [/Deck]
    Will come out:


    Make sure to put numbers in front of Cards in deck tags. 1 or 1x both work.

    If you want to have labels just don't put a number in front.

    [Deck] Land Destruction 2 Stone Rain [/Deck]
    Will become:


    Allergies are too bad to make it to modern this week so no deck reports from me. How's everyone been doing?

    Nice profile pic Nagisa.

    Titanshift is favorable, we main deck most people's sideboard for it. Not an auto win by any means but it's solid.

    Affinity is rough game 1 but with our ramp we can play artifact wipes earlier than other decks could.

    Burn depends a little on your main deck, not a great matchup there though.

    Death's Shadow of both variants haven't been any problem for me. Most people here report the same.

    UW Control is solidly favorable.

    EldraTron is favorable.

    Any suggestions for The Primer?

    I know it's new so it'll have it's share of bugs.

    I had an opponent rage quit when I politely informed him that his fatal push didn't work. Granted he was just mad at wizards for the inconsistency, not at me.

    Do you often keep hands that are full of 4 or 5 drops anyway despite the hand? You mull it back, what land you had doesn't make a difference there.

    It's not like you need it every game or we are running 4 it's a gamble that happens to be better for us that most decks. I'm not arguing that it's the best card ever, but if you feel like RNG is in your favor, why not?


    Trinisphere is very maindeckable. I don't like it for my meta but totally support it for anyone's who's does.

    A singleton Gemstone Caverns is an interesting run in any deck. A Moon deck especially.

    Let's start off by asking if it is good enough when we are on the draw. Let's go with a 7 card opening hand and seeing 7 more cards throughout the game.
    thats a 50% of being a very good 100% would run card and a 50% chance of being bad. At which point there is a 74% chance that we have seen our Blood Moon where it is as good as any of our other non-basics. (I could factor turn for turn but that's a lot of math and the numbers come fairly close anyway) (but it is bad as a turns 2&3 land)

    On the draw Gemstone Caverns is definitely good enough for the deck. On the play it definitely isn't.

    Considering an even meta, 50% of all games we are going second. (Unless we are willing to give that up for a singleton, you shouldn't)

    So, would you run a terrible land for a 50% chance of epic? If your list isn't too red heavy I'd try it. Especially as a 22nd land that you could cut for games 2&3 if you're in the play.

    Arrogant Bard can block any number of creatures.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, put a +1/+1 counter on each creature your opponents control.
    R:Target creature with a +1/+1 counter on it attacks this turn if able.

    "Is that a threat?" "Probably."

    Thanks VampireChild, it took a while to make.



    I hated the idea of Kessig from the get go. I won a game off of it and I told my friend next to me that I still would have rather had a basic. But its been in my list the last few weeks because I hadn't yet seen it without Blood Moon and wanted the fully rounded experience. Now I have.

    I also was wary of all the RR on that list.

    But don't bring what I think is the best version of the deck to my LGS, I try to test out new things.

    This time I was solidly impressed, It really felt able to stick to plan A and still never flood on too much LD. Color was never a problem, generally I shocked myself once more a match, and payed closer attention to what I searched up, but no actual problems. Occasionally I wished I had more finishing power.

    Next week Fracturing Gust is going in the board. It's definitely slower but affinity can't come back from that, let alone the life swing. Instant to punish overcommitment. Boggles is coming back. Wx Prison is a deck. Enchantment Combo decks are an actual thing now. I think it might be our best option there and will test thusly.
