Go for the Temur ones, they use Past in Flames and Sylvan Scrying, but temur has a great manabase, with one triome, and a really good sideboard tech of Nature's Claim for Damping Sphere/Rest in Peace as well as Veil of Summer to protect your combo turns!

Red giving access to Aria of Flame and Grapeshot is also vitally important wincons, as mono-blue just lacks any good outlets. Playing with Temur lets you abuse Ancient Grudge too!

the above list is just the first result, test things out as you please!

Oh yeah. Because you're playing both White and Green and Red and not playing many artifacts or many enchantments, I think you'd be better off playing mass artifact and enchantment hate than playing many artifacts or enchantments yourself (As well as Land Destruction, because it's an option and goes hand in hand with Artifact hate). Good examples are Broken Bond, Dust to Dust, (keep Artifact Mutation), Deconstruct, Gleeful Sabotage, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Tel-Jilad Justice, Tribute to the Wild, Ancient Grudge, By Force, Decimate, Fiery Confluence, Fissure Vent, Shattering Spree, Vandalize, Devastating Dreams, Incendiary Command, Rubble Reading, Scorched Earth, Volcanic Awakening, Volcanic Offering, Yawning Fissure. You don't have to play all of those cards, but because you're playing Tymna the Weaver, everyone will want to kill you as quickly as possible regardless, so using these cards will not damage your reputation much anyway.

I like it. Ancient Grudge is also a nice option

cool deck and i like the detailed description of how your combos work. really helps explain it bc i didnt understand at first.
your Reiterate combo would also work with Mana Geyser.
Impulse is good but hard to decide what to cut for it... maybe Opt?
Crop Rotation is good unless you actually need ramp - then you could run Temple of the False God or Ancient Tomb to allow you to ramp with it. your color fixing seems pretty good so probably safe to run it.
also i like Artifact Mutation but i also like Ancient Grudge bc it has flashback, always nice to get that 2-for-1.

Haha DarkStarStorm. Nice segue.
Well aside from Amulet Titan decks, I'm liking the metagame with regards to Jund's position. Even still, with the semi-recent banning of Once Upon a Time the deck is more in line with lists prior to Throne of Eldraine. Which even though it is a bad match-up, it's beatable G1 with some luck and G2 after SB with Grafdigger's Cage, Fulminator Mage, and Assassin's Trophy.

Everything is a wash though if they get Primeval Titan out early. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove can make that happen if not dealt with. It used to be that leaving in Lightning Bolt was preferred G2 but Dryad of the Ilysian Grove makes Fatal Push slightly better.
It's definitely a bad match-up and I could see going to 3 or even 4 Assassin's Trophy to combat it. Pillage could take the place of Ancient Grudge as a flexible card in addition to Fulminator Mage since i can also hit Amulet of Vigor if they leave it in.

I'm confidant in the other match-ups for now. Burn is always slightly less than 50/50 but that's pretty much the case with almost every Modern deck against Burn.

I guess I'll start with silly pride and say I totally understand. I try to build off the beaten path a lot and don't see many results for that reason. Check out some of the decks I upload over time and you would understand. One of my current modern decks (not on here is a mono green land destruction/ramp deck that tries to cast an early Tooth and Nail.

As far as Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi I am not quite a big fan since it could die to 1 cost spells such as Fatal Push or Path to Exile. If you're looking to push the land theme of things, there is Rude Awakening. Another card to consider for the deck would be Crumble to Dust.

Lastly thanks for simplifying your decklist.


I completely agree with your statement on needing to tune a list to your local meta. I do want to ask your thoughts on the decks that run Liquidmetal coating and copies of Karn, the Great Creator or Ancient Grudge as an alternate way of controlling lands and if it would be something worth considering? The karn plan could give an additional way to influence the game with sideboard slots for things like Trinisphere or even Ensnaring Bridge.

The bolt thing fills a slot similar to a singleton of spell snare in blue decks, not in quantity large enough to be consistent turn 1 draws or hands, but can alter the tempo of a game in narrow but crucial scenarios (turn 1 infect plays, swiftspears, or mirror). But you do make some good points that the lack of consistency leaves a bit to be desired in today's pace and meta.

As far as Snow goes I was referring to the prevalence of more snow-basics being implemented into decks as well as the rise of astrolabe. Both have caused Blood Moon to diminish its returns as a four of, backing up what you said. I play Snow-Bant in paper and run blood moons in the board for example.

I think playing to your local meta is crucial if you want the deck to be competitive. Lot of Tron? Bring 4 moons. Lot of white? Sneak a Stormbreath Dragon into the main or side. Lots of astrolabe? Give Abrade or Ancient Grudge a try. I am forever changing this deck, since its a tier 2 it needs constant tuning against tier 1s. For example, I use to run Obstinate Baloth out of the side board when Jund was big with Lilly and KC, but it has no place in the current meta, instead i run 4 Leyline of the Void these days and lots of Veil of Summer.
