Cast Vivid Revival to get back Assassin's Trophy, Trostani Discordant, and Status//Statue. Cast all three spells a second time. Still lose the game.  :wow

I feel like I'm pulled to those colors a lot in Rav3, at least in sealed. What can I say, I love me some removal. If had a few Lava Coils instead of AssTrophy and S//S then I'd probably play Mardu but it seems like every pool wants to give me S//S.

Arena players continue to not know the difference between a triggered ability and an activated ability, this time playing Demotion on my Skyline Scout. This is what happens when you let normies have access to nerd shit, smh.

I have yet to see someone use Demotion properly. otoh, I had someone use Maniacal Rage as a pseduo-Demotion to alpha strike me, which is a play I hadn't even considered until I heard it mentioned in a Channel Fireball video a few days ago. Good play, person whose Arena key is also their username because of a known glitch that Wizards didn't fix. Good play.

iirc you can't target a spell that can't be countered in MODO. The fact that you can in Arena is pretty silly, even with the existence of cards in Standard that have a pseudo Storm effect.

Also, we laugh about the Demotion misplays but it's going to lead to no more cards like Demotion, cards that "improve" Demotion by including triggered abilities that cost significantly more mana, or a pulling back on answers to creature abilities because they're "confusing." Not excited about any of those possibilities tbh.

Yeah, Arena does a great job of getting casuals playing the game while doing a terrible job of introducing them to the nuance of the mechanics. Just auto tap your mana! Can be preeeeeetty dumb, eg it seems to want to tap my fucking Azcanta first every goddamn time. Would actually be really nice when I'm in garbage time permission grinding opponents out if I could just mindlessly smush out counters and removal with azcanta out. Often taps your mana in a way that stops you frm being able to cast the only other spell you possibly could've cart in your hand. Etc. Really terrible algorithm, not that I'm surprised because I mean look at anything wotc / has bro have built so far.

Played in the Dallas Open this weekend, went 3-3 and dropped. I played Burn instead of my usual Skred, but tbh I think I just don't really like Burn anymore. The rush of a T3 kill is still great (T1 Monastery Swiftspear, T2 Lava Spike 2x, T3 Lightning Bolt + Boros Charm), but I'd rather just durdle around and cast some janky crap. I've messed around with Amulet Titan, Storm, and Ponza but none of those are quite doing it for me either. I think I'm gonna take a look at G/W Company next. I'm not too worried about winning, in case that wasn't apparent.

gw/bant company is my favourite toolbox deck in the format.

jeskai tempo feat. snap and mentor is a blast.

i've been messing around with more aggressive bug midrange lists (not deaths shadow) with grim flayer, goyf, snap and jtms as my core threats since Assassin's Trophy shores up the decks biggest weaknesses (Eldrazi, Tron Lands, Planeswalkers, Tasigur/Gangler etc). experimenting with lili TLH and tireless tracker at the 3 and a mix of bob and jvp. trying to avoid fully buying into the grind of lotv rn for a more counter heavy midrange. i think jvp might actually have a place to shine in this kind of list.

I'm relatively new to Modern still but I don't think it's a format where you can get married to a tier 1 / tier 1.5 deck the way you can in other nonrotating formats; between the way the banned list is managed and modern card design in general (to say nothing of the fact that it's the only true professional format in this group) the patterns of play narrow fast and you find yourself in the game of sideboards people often lament.

Burn is a bit of a terminal example in that it hasn't been shaken up in a long time and it's unlikely to change very much in the future unless it gets spectacularly bad because R&D still can't consistently make good but balanced red cards. I only play it because (1) it was cheap for me to build and (2) it's good when Storm is bad so I have a deck to hedge against the meta. (It's also kind of fun to be an actual cop instead of a mall cop [Jund].)

Speaking of being married to Modern decks, Nikachu got third place in the challenge last weekend and finished top 8 a few weeks before that. Get rekt, U/G/W Spirits, Mistcaller > Collected Company.

Yeah, Burn has just gotten stale for me. I've been playing it for 3 years and the only change has been the printing of Inspiring Vantage and the removal of Atarka's Command and Wild Nacatl. The decklist is pretty much set in stone at this point. I even thought about playing some kind of Steam-Kin/Risk Factor variant this weekend just for variety, but there's really no room to fart around without just building a strictly worse version of Burn (or Storm, in some of the Steam-Kin decks I looked at).

I like the look of G/W Company, because it seems like in almost every set there's one broken 3cmc creature that at least has the potential to make the cut (Dominaria had Bugler, Guilds has Knight of Autumn). There's room to experiment and no strictly best decklist. It's almost like current Wizards is better at printing broken creatures than printing playable Red spells, I wonder if anyone has noticed this before? :thinking

Burn was my first modern deck, and is now my hangover tournament deck. I haven't played it in quite a while, but I like to keep it updated. Got 4 full art Searing Blaze recently :lawd

Feel you on getting bored with it though. There's the game of sideboards and the filler slots to think about. E.g., do i run my Satyr Firedancers out the board today? Should I make room for a couple Flames of the Blood Hand or Exquisite Firecraft? Will my 40th spell for the md be a Shard Volley or a Lavaman? 8) But the lists naturally are pretty damn stock. I don't see any big changes like Eidolon happening again for a very long time. Wouldn't be surprised if a cheap black drain spell gets printed that pushes people to start playing mardu more though, bump in the night is already very good and there are some solid black sb cards. It would also be cool to kill someone with Sign in Blood one day.

I've never tried a Mardu list, but if I did I'd like to give Bloodchief Ascension a crack too.

Also, I've never gone straight Boros. Unless your meta is incredibly burn heavy, splashing for D Rev seems pretty important rn. I like an Ancient Grudge or two as well (I hate losing to Robots and KCI, i run a few Stony Silence too  :doge). I think of burn as a tempo control deck in modern where a lot of decks goldfish turn 3 or 4, while burn is more turn 4, 5 or 6 with a little disruption.

I agree on the green splash but it seems like lifers are really off it. Smash to Smithereens fills a similar niche, sure, but Scales Affinity isn't the deck du jour anymore. I suspect the aversion somewhat stems from the small percentage of games you lose due to playing a third color as lifers are more likely to encounter situations like that.

Another reason to switch to G/W Value Town: Todd Stevens probably won't be playing Magic for a long time. Exploit that underserved market, brehwalkers. :money

I've still been using the green splash for D.Revs, although Leyline of Sanctity hasn't been seeing as much play as it used to in the current meta, so it's probably cuttable.

Yeah, my friend was shocked about Todd Steven's getting #MeToo'd because he was convinced that he was gay.

I'm curious as to why Manamorphose isn't in here, perhaps it's on a watch list we're not privy to.

Also as soon as the full spoiler came out Manamorphose was bought out at all the big card sites. Never change, garbo MTGFinance. :lol

e: As a bougie fuck who actually drafted a lot of Masters sets I'm going to miss Masters sets. Hopefully whatever replaces them isn't shitty even though it almost certainly will be shitty like a fucking EDG supplemental series or something.

I'm pretty sure thats a violation of the rules. Cant cast a spell if theres no legal target. So Arena lets you cast a counterspell on a Carnage Tyrant and then bins the counter card? Violation of game rules/state. Wouldn't fly in competitive REL

You can target an uncounterable spell with a counterspell in paper magic, the counterspell just resolves and does nothing. It's like casting a destroy spell on something with indestructible: it's still a valid target, it just doesn't have any effect.

OH MY GOD!

[[Murder]] an opponents [[Poison-tip Archer]] gain control of it from the Graveyard (first of ones to die in the game), they bring another one out mid-game. We're trading life as I poke him and he kills one of my creatures/death-touch his tokens.

Go big with [[Yargle, Glutton of Urborg]], swing. They go for Leathal. I have two creatures left (and a token made) and just as I'm deciding to block...

Disconnect (as the timer appears)

FUCK FUCK FUCK! *try to reconnect, fail, finally do!*

"DEFEAT!"

Fuck you, we were trading life between those Poison-Tip Archers and if I blocked 3 of his creatures, I'm assuming my Poison-Tip Archer and HIS Poison-Tip Archer would've done lethal to him and to me thereby tie/drawing the game.

This is pissing me off. I really was enjoying that round and Wizard's disconnecting ruined it.

Pro-tip: sign up for 500 gold, immediately resign, get 100 gold back and at least one rare. You can even get all the way up to two mythics.

That's 2.5x cheaper than buying a pack and you can often get the equivalent of 2 (i.e two rares or better).

Oh, I'm talking Arena.

This time around, I went Gruul (since the other one that is +1/+1 counters, Plains/Forests? Guild??? was full) and built a Island, Mountain, Forest deck. 1 Island, 3 Mountains, 3 Forests, 1 Guild Gate that was Island/Plains, 2 of Mountain, Forests and did a bit better than last time. But I got completely ate alive by the last 2 opponents I faced when they had like 5/5 flyers out of Island and it's like "where the fuck did you get these, and why the fuck didn't I get something similar?" The best I got was like a 1/1 flyer I was trying to get +1/+1 counters onto with the Enchantment to block countering creature spells (get fucked, Islands) that gives all non-token creatures Riot.

Speaking of which: I think that keyword is pretty weak in limited, at least in my experience. Maybe it's better if the luck is on your side, but I was either using Haste most rounds, or trying to get the +1/+1's stacked only to have bolts or exiles eat my creatures before I could lay my flyer up.

But the most fun I had was the first opponent I played. We both treason'd our creatures to bash against each other to win one round each, and I won the last one via time-out. So...  :lol

WTF.

Doing well in competitive sealed is more about knowing the environment than luck tbh. Learning exactly what decks pay off through rote experience is far more important, and anyone who says their deck is too weak probably hasn't splashed and is playing too conservatively.

Took me nearly the full hour to make my GRN deck at the Melbourne GP, and still nearly Day 2'd with a BUGW pile of crap.
