Are you kidding? Replace Glimpse with Mission Briefing??
Replace one of the most efficient mill cards (in mill!) for random cast from your graveyard? With hard casting cost and even no reliability that you will have targets at all in your grave. And when you will have targets 80% of the times it wouldnt be Archive Trap

Sep 13, 2018I think 8 Rack cares much about card advantage. Path wasnt good and this can be mediocre too. Though there are green splashes already and this can be used as universal answer to problematic cards (Tron lands, Leyline, Chalice, Planeswalkers, Aszcanta), worth trying.Posted in: Control
Sep 6, 2018Damping Sphere is good, way better than Crumble to Dust imoPosted in: Control
oh I see you can
+3 Molten Rain
+3 Damping Sphere
+2 Goblin Rabblemaster
+2 Smash to Smithereens
vs Tron on top of Blood Moons
I dont think you need more help)
With such variety of tools Id definitely replace Crumble to Dust with Dragon's Claw
Sep 6, 2018Id goPosted in: Control
+3 Delirium Skeins
+3 Asylum Visitor
+1 Nezumi Shortfang
-3 Fatal Push
-2 Ensnaring Bridge
Im not high on Visitor or Nezumi but they are better than removal
Generally I side out 2 rack effects vs Control but you have a lot of bad cards main for this matchup. Funeral Charm helps with this, its always ok and it doesnt feel bad to leave it main after side.
Relic is a nice card to have in side, worst case it cantrips for two and often it provides value for 'free'
Teferi and Azcanta are biggest offenders in this matchup, I think Leyline is justified because it also helps vs Snapcaster
Delirium should be good. You want to play it empty handed to discard 2-3 cards. Collateral damage to white Leyline but Im not sure they play it nowadays
I think you want to play atleast 3 Wrench Minds, 8Rack got worse, we need to fight all this card advantage around
I think Field of Ruin is our next best choice after conventional lands but I dont know if it worth to cut Swamp. Definitely Im not cutting Urborg or Mutavault. It can be a nice option in side, mainly if Tron is big in your meta.
Sep 4, 2018Posted in: ControlQuote from Hugo do Prado »We could say the same about Eternal list before the GP 1st place some time ago, that the deck is "useless".
The fact is that this version (Dragons) is now popular and has it's strengths. In my opinion it has the same power level as the Eternal list, but for different playstyle and meta.
Nothing avoids anyone to have a card pool for both lists, as the cards are cheap.
I went to a pptq final using this list, and not got not even the top8 using Eternal list for more than 1 and a half year!
One can say any meaningless stuff but I pretend to have an argumented opinion.
Skred Red was an established tier3-4 archetype prior to gp win. Aside from those that say there are 3-5 good decks I knew 2 years ago that there are 50 decks that can win a gp.
I playtested the deck and it was horrible.
Like, what are this deck's win conditions?
Ok Blood Moon wins games occasionally. Its rare, but some decks get destroyed by Moon, some lose too much tempo.
Aside from that, 4 mana 4/4 flyer, 5 mana 4/4 haste flyer? Really, in modern?
This is not an aggro, control or combo deck. Its a bad midrange deck with a lot of removal and standard power level finishers.
It has little disruption to overcome combo decks, almost no card advantage or speed to overcome control decks.
This is on top of curve inconsistency (6 5-drops, little mana sinks -> hello mana flood and mana screw) and questionable mainboard cards (Ratchet bomb and Anger of Gods are not good midrange cards, Draconic Roar is a joke)
Yes this deck should have solid winrate vs small creatures decks but against others it flops.
You post good finishes with the deck, but I bet there are more bad finishes hidden
To anyone else trying this deck: expect 20-30% winrate
I think 'Eternal Skred' is a superior deck because it gives more consistency and more reliability because with the same removal package you get wincons that dont die to Path, Push or Dismember
Aug 31, 2018This Dragons deck is useless. Yes it can win via t3 Blood Moon or if your opponent is soft to removal or if he get unlucky but generally it is useless. Playtested and very dissapointed.Posted in: Control
Maybe there will be sometimes a good list but current lists are garbage.
Aug 15, 2018Guys what graveyard hate do you think is preferable for fast slivers?Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I always liked Relic of Progenitus because it provides value 'for free' and can be cycled. Though there are less Tarmogoys these days to suffer from relics. Also need to leave one mana open is uncomfortable. Nihil Spellbomb resembles Relic but with own pros and cons.
Grafdigger's Cage and Surgical Extraction are other possibilities
I dont consider Leyline of the Void and Rest in Peace because they are hard to cast but I do own all of these.
Maybe Leyline is not that bad or I missed something else?
Aug 12, 2018It will 'stop' Phantasmal Image provided they copy a creature with etb trigger. And 2/3 of copyable creatures have etb triggers (by copyable I mean everything except Phantasmal Image and Thalia, the former because it will copy original, not Image and the latter because there is no much sense to copy legendary)Posted in: Aggro & Tempo

I didnt say thatQuote from JonasDash »you heard 'em folks, shut the format down, every game ends turn 3 according to some guy so don't play any 4 mana cards
But if you are going to bring Night to fight
Arbor Elf, Champion of the Parish, Glistener Elf, Memnite and Sakura-Tribe Elder
I wont bet on you
I played Night in sb for over a year.

Other possibilities are 8 Rack and Humans. I have huge experience with 8Rack, big with Slivers and somewhat small with Humans, also missing cards for $300 for the latter. Trying to figure out decks' fitness to metagame and my win percentages.
Aug 7, 2018Metallic Sliver is blank, Striking, Virulent and Sidewinder are betterPosted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Horizon Canopy is not needed imo, solid number of mana sinks already, Sliver Hive suffers from saccing lands and we need all 5 colors more than humans, also they induce pain on every activationI really like the thought of using horizon canopy in fast slivers, just wish it wasnt extremely expensive $$$...
Sliver Hive is card advantageI think Fast Slivers would be pretty awesome if we could get slivers like Militia Bugler or someway to get card advantage.
Unlike Humans, Fast Slivers have very nice manabase with 8 mana sinks instead of 4 one shot effects

They pack counterspells, burn, bounce, manlands besides snapcasters which are gonna die probably but can still deal damage
