Quote from multikiosken »I'm not sure I follow the Drake vs TiTi arguments.
TiTi improves the bad matchups, Drake improves the already good matchups?
If that premise holds, wouldn't we run TiTi main, and then have cards like Drake, Keranos etc. in the board?
In my opinion the fair MUs are the difficult ones. I'm referring to Jund, BG etc. Against decks like Humans and Spirits it's not so clear cut, but I'd say Thing is more crucial there. Against UWx control whichever threat you run feels inconsequential, but having too many expensive spells would be a disaster. (EDIT: then there's burn - a difficult MU, but having Things makes a huge difference IMO. If you see Hardened Scales as a fair deck, then that's one more MU where Thing takes the cake.)
Whether you agree or disagree, I don't see Drake being a SB card. Keranos is also an overcosted clunker IMO. To be frank, I find the MUs BGx completely unsalvagable, and would have my focus on other decks. Modern is littered with linear aggressive decks anyway, so thinking about how to beat the fair decks is not that relevant.
