Opinion on the current meta? Do you expect any meta shifts?

How do you feel about Modern as a format right now?

Favorite fringe deck in Modern?

What do you think X needs to be more viable?

Learning DSJ, playing affinity and random eldrazi builds
>Hating?
Land destruction I guess? Nothing really
>Opinion on the current meta? Do you expect any meta shifts?
Decent to good. I can see DS getting hit but I really hope it doesn't
>How do you feel about Modern as a format right now?
It's been dull for a while but DSJ is pretty fun. Better than when it was just infect/dredge/burn at least
>Favorite fringe deck in Modern?
Weird color eldrazi builds. Sultai and Mardu come to mind
>What do you think X needs to be more viable?
I'd like to see some kind of interesting storm/combo deck, something built around cards like paradox engine or something.

Bant Eldrazi and G/B Tron.
>Hating?
I don't really hate anything; if someones deck shits all over mine, well, that's just how it goes.
>Opinion on the current meta? Do you expect any meta shifts?
It's okay. I expect DSJ to pick up more steam for about a month, and then fall off from there as people figure out how to hate it out.
>How do you feel about Modern as a format right now?
It's pretty decent, I dig the diversity of decks. Most events I attend I can sit down and never play vs the same deck twice.
>What do you think X needs to be more viable?
I wish there was a good Kiln Fiend deck in the format, I love that shit in pauper.
>Most retarded cry for a ban you've seen?

Been on DSJ for a while now. It's a great deck and it puts up a ton of results.

>Opinion on the current meta? Do you expect any meta shifts?
I think it's fine. No one deck is overly dominant. DSJ doesn't even go over 10% of the meta. I expect another ban with all the bitching, and if that happens, I'll play regular Jund again
>Favorite fringe deck in Modern?

>How do you feel about Modern as a format right now?
It's not bad. It could slow down.
>Favorite fringe deck in Modern?
>What do you think X needs to be more viable?
I think there should be a U instant, draw 2 shuffle 1 from your hand into your deck.

I maintain it would have been more interesting if it only reliably hit 2-drops.
There's printing a powerful card, and there's printing a card that changes certain aspects of play, but not all aspects.
I favor the latter.
Opening the door to impactful 3-drops would have added angles of consideration for decks. Trying to build around Push is pointless. Only Tasigur really dodges it.

No.
Buying boxes is a speculator's game. If you're after certain cards, buy them. Cracking packs from "value sets" might result in profit at a large enough scale, but it is still no guarantee of any specific rares.

The only other reason to buy boxes is if you want a cube and want more consistant filling than a $100 junk box from who knows what sets.

Regarding the Mox Opals, since I own them, the problem wouldn't be the financial value that would be lost, but the high probability that would kill one of the most fun Decks I tried (and I tried many). Specially considering the plays around it don't feel that powerfull when there are Decks with amazing strong (cheap) creatures with very little drawbacks. We don't need Modern as a "Stronger Extended" but a "Lite Legacy". We shouldn't remove the hability of allow "fun" Decks.

Don't do it. Bump in the Night and Rift Bolt are more or less comparable and you have to factor in the additional life loss from blood crypt. If you were doing RBx Burn, then sure, but 4c Burn is never a good idea. I've played Burn for a long time, and tried out all flavors of the deck. The added conaistancy (which is a very small amount) is outweighed by the loss of life and/or inconsistency of your mana base.

Anyone see Franky playing that KCI memedeck?

I think the loops are real, are a solid core could be made for the deck with a bit more testing, kinda like Sneks without the traverses.

The Ugins Sactum gimmick I actually really like, the thing that sucks is the whole Battlespheres being really shitty. The Emrakul wincon, and fetching it with sanctum, is the 'easiest way out', but emrakul is a terrible card in hand too.

The first thing is that Hangarback Walker does the same thing as Battlesphere for Sanctum, while being much more castable, nets extra mana with KCI when x=1, and also counts as a 0cmc for Trawler.

Been thinking of ways to make the finisher a combokill instead of Emrakul too, maybe with Retreivers and a Ballista or something.

tl;dr Trawler KCI is sweet, the 3 card wincon package could be better.

Chrome sphere also seems subpar, and the Mishras playset seem hamfisted (considering opal and hangarback are redundant 0cmcs), although it does add extra 0cmc slots at a low opportunity cost so it's probably not bad to have some baubles

The retrievers on paper look real too. Instead of fetching up an emrakul, you can use the retriever loop to trawl back opals infinitely, make a bigass hangarback/ballista, draw the whole deck, etc.
I think using the cute sanctum tech to get a combo loop is more in spirit with the deck too than hardcasting Emrakul

Walking Ballista can win you games, the moment you play it, you can start killing stuff with (specially with Basilisk Collar). It is basically a Ulamog 2.0 that you can play early and pump later while controlling the board.
I find Ugin lacking, he doesn't help very much against Decks like Affinity or Eldrazis. When you already have All is Dust, which you can play much earlier, he doesn't seems as appealing. If you Meta has a lot of graveyard based creatures (Dredge), then yes, he will win you games. But he still is a 8 MANA which means 3rd turn in best case scenario (if you played mindstone), which can be hard to survive.

draft is the best format

there is an element of RNG but there are so many layers of RNG (pulling X card out of a pack, do I get my lands, do I get my colors, do I draw it, does he have an answer, etc) that it basically boils down to skill and card selection eventually

If you can consistently win draft (it's possible) and understand why, you're a good player

You also get to use almost everything in the pack, it's the only format "draft chaff" matters and the only format you'll see something like Serra Angel actually feel powerful.

Draft is the best format, and there are probably best blocks/packs to draft but draft on the whole is the best

Modern = Commander in terms of how good. Constructed you get to play with cards you like and win how you want, but the cost of entry is crazy and people can basically turn up their power levels on a gradient by spending more money. With commander you get high variance high impact which is fun but it gets really spiky and degenerate at high levels which gets away from the high variance spirit of the format. Modern only gets so spiky once you hit tiers and that's it, the "spirit" of the format is to beat or play the tier decks, so construction is still fun. But draft does away with a lot of the "auto lose" that you get in modern and no cookie cutter lists makes your deck building and card analysis skills more important.

I think the matter is how imbalanced they are for a draft.

Do they print them at common and have possibly multiple sets of tron going around? Do they print them at uncommon and have it be an oddity if anyone even gets full tron at all? Do they print it at rare and cheese people off?

Honestly I feel like tron should be a draftable archetype but I feel they probably did fairly extensive testing on it to determine that for some reason or another it was unhealthy for the format.

Having tron means they need land support, land interaction (less fun) and draft level tron payoffs that get passed by anyone else. Just seems to me that they didn't wanna give MM any **really** meaningful draftable lands.

>are t2 decks worth playing

Absolutely. Tier is only determined by popularity/meta share and lets you have a chance to prepare for what seem to be likely opponents. Tier 2 and below decks are definitely worth playing, but there *is* a correlation for strength with tier. So if you're playing a tier 3 deck and everyone else is playing tier 1, you might not win, because the best decks are often popular *because* they're strong. If you're playing a tier 3 deck with stony silence you can still beat tron, affinity, and lantern depending on the draws.

Basically, look at what is succeeding (anything tier is succeeding, regardless of tier), play what you want to play, and prepare more for your metagame than anything else.

>> No.52362210

>>52362157

>Are T2+ decks worth playing?

If you put in the time and reps with the deck, absolutely. For example Ad Nauseam is a Tier 2 deck but the deck is very solid and combos out frequently and top8's and has even won a GP. Knowing how to play AN against a deck that is wanting to go super fast and kill you before you combo like say Affinity or a bad matchup like Infect is another thing entirely. If you're unfamiliar with the format I would suggest a tier 1 deck or a good solid deck that has fairly even matchups like Jund or Bant Eldrazi to get a familiarity of the format and exposure to other matchups. But with everything, hop onto something like Cockatrice or Xmage and try out a list and see if you like a deck first.

>> No.52362262

>>52362206

Because none of the pieces are any good on their own, and they sit in your hand for too long making you vulnerable to the formats widespread hand disruption. And on top of that the creature does not have haste so it needs to survive an untap, so the deck also folds to the formats widespread creature removal.

Twin was powerful because it curved from a 3 cost flash creature that doesn't die to bolt into a 4 cost enchantment, both of which had a degree of usability outside the combo to support the decks other wincon, which is tempo/damage.

If you're a new player, it also matters to know what your local kitchen table group is like, if you have one.

But, I might recommend 2015. The cards are more consistently usable. 2017 is split between pure gold, and absolute garbage.

Buying singles is a bad idea if you don't know what you're doing, because it gives you access to the coolest shit, without the knowledge to know how much of that is also unplayable shit.

Pooling is a good idea in theory, but in practice it doesn't work out well if you're trying to make coherent decks and it's your primary source of cards.
