Ancient Grudge Discussion

Kjartan on Naya Midrange

3 days ago

Lol, this looks like a deck I could've build back in the day. It's very 16 year old Kjartan style XD.

There are some changes I would make here, seeing you have a gigantic cardpool all of a sudden. It's very clear that this is an old standard deck of yours, and it looks great for that, but modern is extremely fast, and filled with powerfull cards. If you want to play a slow deck, you need a to be more interactive.

For the nonland part:

I would remove 2x Aurelia, the Warleader, 1x Thundermaw Hellkite, 2x Loxodon Smiter, 2x Boros Reckoner, 2x Mizzium Mortars, 2x Thragtusk, 1x Restoration Angel, 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Elspeth Tirel, 2x Farseek and 2x Birds of Paradise leaving you with 18 cards to boot.

I would instead add:

3x Path to Exile, 4x Lightning Bolt, 3x Kitchen Finks, 4x Noble Hierarch, 4x Tarmogoyf (If you don't want to invest in Tarmogoyf, instead play 4x Voice of Resurgence)

for the land part:

I would remove 1x Cavern of Souls 1x Kessig Wolf Run, 2x Sacred Foundry, 2x Temple Garden, 3x Stomping Ground, 4x Rootbound Crag, 3x Sunpetal Grove.

Leaving you with 9 cards.

As replacement I would add: 4x Windswept Heath, 2x Wooded Foothills (1x Arid Mesa or antoher Wooded Foothills after taste and money), 2x Plains, 2x Forest, 1x Mountain and 3x Raging Ravine.

As for sideboard, you need to be able to deal with some of you bad match-ups and/or have wide answers you can board in against a ton of builds.

I recomand something like

2x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

1x Path to Exile

1x Choke

2x Ancient Grudge

2x Grafdigger's Cage

1x Stony Silence

1x Qasali Pridemage

1x Feed the Clan

1x Engineered Explosives

1x Fulminator Mage

1x Crumble to Dust

1x Spellskite

You should really consider Nahiri, the Harbinger. She's fantastic here for digging, controlling the battlefield, and tutoring for the missing piece of your combo.

Kitchen Finks is rather unimpressive here. It can't be recurred with Reveillark and isn't the best attacker. Thragtusk is incredible in Kiki Chord and has great synergy with Restoration Angel. It's not difficult to cast or chord for with all of the ramp and tokens and is much stronger against burn, zoo, etc.

I highly suggest another Pia and Kiran Nalaar as it has incredible value. It's one of your best cards against affinity and infect and it's great against BG/X.

Raging Ravine is a great way to increase your speed against control, BG/X, tron, etc without worsening your mana base. It works well with Voice of Resurgence tokens and is difficult to remove.

As for your sideboard, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Thrun, the Last Troll, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, another Fulminator Mage, Stony Silence, Ancient Grudge, and Engineered Explosives are all great options. I have been running 1 Fulminator Mage main and 1 in the side, which has been working very well.

Many people, including myself, run a splash of blue or black in Kiki Chord for more flexibility so keep that in mind if you choose to build this. Blue is mostly for Glen Elendra Archmage, Deceiver Exarch, Negate, and Keranos, God of Storms while black is mostly for Orzhov Pontiff and Sin Collector. Best of luck in modern and feel free to ask me any questions.

I like Ancient Grudge better when I already have access to green. Rugged Highlands is what I wanted to add, I confused it with the other because they are functionally identical.

Also, is there a more budget friendly version of Pyroblast?

I suppose I could do $20. If you could do 2 Nature's Claim id be pretty stoked. I am actually only looking for the Promo Ancient Grudges. Trying to "pimp" my Tooth & Nail modern deck.

What would interest me more than the Nature's Claims even would be cool basic forests. Not full art. Let me know man

Hm, could I haggle you up to $20? I could throw in some Nature's Claim and I'm fairly sure I have a spare Ancient Grudge.

So (like in the comment above), Lantern's bad matchups are the ones where there are too many relevant cards we need to get rid of. With Jund, there relevant cards pre-board are Liliana of the Veil, Scavenging Ooze, Dark Confidant, Abrupt Decay, Lightning Bolt, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Kolaghan's Command, and Maelstrom Pulse, and possibly something like Pia and Kiran Nalaar.

So, in the average Jund deck, that's somewhere in the region of 26 cards that require an answer, and they require varied answers. Pithing Needle answers some, but not all, Abrupt Decay answers some, Spellskite answers some, but they're so disruptive that our lock is harder to achieve, and have a fast clock in the form of Tarmogoyf that it becomes difficult to get anything going.

Is it impossible? No, not at all. Post board something like Leyline of Sanctity answers a number of those cards, and makes getting things going much easier. But we've still got to deal with additional cards like Ancient Grudge and Vandalblast-effects which keep the number of cards we've got to worry about reasonably high.

I'm interested in 2 Flooded Strand or a Flooded Strand and Polluted Delta, plus Ancient Grudge and I've got a Dark Confidant, let me know if you're interested.

CaptSillva on Liquid Metal Splinters

Liquimetal Coating and Splinter is a cool combo but I don't really get the rest of the deck. Augur of Bolas is alright but not great in this format and terrible when only 1/10 of your deck is an instant or sorcery. Orochi Leafcaller is only good for fixing and you don't need fixing in a two color deck. Oran-Fief Hydra is too slow for modern.

Also blue seems completely tacked on since it doesn't support your main strategy at all.

Red would be a much better color to support your combo since it offers the best artifacts removal cards with Shattering Spree, Vandalblast, and since you are running green Ancient Grudge. Also of course you could run Mycosynth Lattice and/or Myr Landshaper.
