Ancient Grudge Discussion

@Rhinowarrior: I would not suggest that... I did that my first night of modern and well, it wasn't fun. Most people aren't prepared for hexproof, so you should do decently, all you need to do is instead of gearing your sideboard towards what you think might be there, put versatility cards in the sideboard... Cards that would work well against say both Pod and Affinity should go in, and cards that are ONLY good against certain decks should stay out.. Examples of versatility cards are: Dismember (pod, jund, junk, and UWR control), Ancient Grudge (pod and affinity), Rest in Peace (storm, pod. and dredge...) Boros Charm (junk, other aggro decks, UWR control... etc...

Oh, and good luck!

thispersonisagenius. I never said Daybreak Coronet was bad, I just said he probably couldn't afford it... and I agree that Stony Silence is a better hate card, but Ancient Grudge seems like it could be better because Stony Silence doesn't remove blockers, where Ancient Grudge does... But I agree... Stony Silence is probably overall better... In no way was I trying to offend anyone... I was just trying to make points as to why certain cards could be, in certain situations, better than other, more commonly thought of as 'good' cards.

Once again, I apologize if I offended anyone :)

I see you have a Nature's Claim in your sideboard for enchantment (Stony Silence ) removal. Personally I like running Ray of Revelation and Wear / Tear because they're both basically 2 cards for the price of one and it doesn't give my opponent life advantage, which I feel is important in an aggressive deck like this. I two Ancient Grudge in my sideboard, 1 Ray of Revelation and 1 Wear / Tear . Other than that looks good.

Daybreak Coronet is an obscenely good card against everything. You will never play a mirrormatch. No one plays Hexproof.

Stony Silence is arguably a better hate card than Ancient Grudge . They can't do Arcbound Ravager shenanigans, equip Cranial Plating , activate Steel Overseer , Springleaf Drum , Mox Opal or even their Darksteel Citadel .

Mountainwalk is only good when your creature isn't already hard to block. Spirit Mantle already does the job much more consistently. I don't know what deck you mean by Big Red, so once you explain what that is I can explain why any card you could play is better there as well.

Ancient Grudge is a great card thanks for the suggestion. I will switch that out. Btw guys, I am 16 and jobless. No daybreak coronets for me anytime soon:/ that's why i splashed red.

Actually, the red splash gives you Madcap Skills , Ancient Grudge , and Volcanic Strength . Madcap Skills is an obscenely good card against jund and the mirror, Ancient Grudge is the best answer to any deck that runs artifacts, Volcanic Strength is great against jund and big red... I agree that it might not be the best idea, but until he has more money to spend on modern, it will work...

If you expect a lot of hexproof hate, yes...

If you're worried about hexproof hate, the cards you should look out for are: Spellskite , which is the go to for almost every deck out there, Liliana of the Veil , and Back to Nature . Raise the Alarm protects against liliana very well, but isn't great against the other two... So for sideboard, I'd think about 1-2 Raise the Alarm , 1-2-3 Boros Charm (to give double strike, or avoid instant speed removal), and possibly some artifact hate other than Flamespeaker's Will . Flamespeaker's Will is good against affinity, but if they resolve a spellskite, you're toast... I would put Ancient Grudge in it's place.. If you are very worried about artifact decks (affinity) you should consider Stony Silence ... shuts them down hard and pumps your Ethereal Armor 's...

Good luck! :)

Recently switched out Ancient Grudge for Reclamation Sage because of the lack of Affinity in my area, and my matchups against Blood Moon decks have drastically improved. Price
