clayperce on artifact hate low in modern?

As an additional P.S. ...

2019 is just getting started of course, but we've actually had six Artifact hate cards in the Top 20, over the last two weeks: Abrade #2, Ceremonious Rejection #6, Nature's Claim #7, Stony Silence #9, Ancient Grudge #14, Knight of Autumn #20.

clayperce i actually did a lil check too. Jan 13, 2019 top 8 decks all ran 2-3 artifact hate cards other than kci running 4. i dont think its gone up over time, i think its just we have many different choices nowadays versus Ancient Grudge and Stony Silence from the past.

it is very interesting data tho. personally i think 2-3 artifact hate cards is pretty low, especially with most of the top 8 decks on that particular date atleast running 2 side.

P.S. I got curious about the change in Artifact hate over time, so I looked it up on MTGtop8.

Here's some data on the Top 20 most played sideboard cards in Modern, each year:

If anything, it appears Artifact hate is going up over time, rather than down

With KCI, Tron, and Hardened Affinity all towards the top of the format, I believe Artifact hate is relatively high, at least in Competitive play. And Combo decks almost always have either Artifact hate (usually Nature's Claim ) or a bounce spell, to remove an opposing Damping Sphere / Grafdigger's Cage /etc.

FWIW, UR Phoenix usually runs 3-5 hate cards in some combination of Ceremonious Rejection , Abrade , Ancient Grudge , and Shattering Spree . You're right thought that Hollow One doesn't run dedicated hate that often; not sure why.

idk if its just me, but hollowed one and phoenix decks seem to run verry little artifact hate. against affinity people just use other cards ive noticed.

am i the only one noticing the amount of artifact hate like Ancient Grudge is at an all time low? or is it just a coincidence.

Neither case is a "perfect" lock, but they are pretty close. Both of them can be dealt with via on board abilities. In Omen Machine's case, if they already have access to an answer (Shatter, Reclamation Sage, and the like), they can just use it. Knowledge Pool can be dealt with by cards cast from other zones besides the hand. Flashing back Ancient Grudge for example, or by an uncounterable spell out from under the pool (Abrupt Decay). In reality, though, both would likely prompt concessions as they will quickly know whether they can get out from under it in a reasonable amount of time.

Strength of the Tajuru maybe? Hurricane could end the game if you're up on life and you have no flyers.

Ancient Grudge would take out a LOT of artifacts

Your deck is a pretty workable metagame deck with two glaring weaknesses.

First its only playable against creature decks.
With all due respect, it does diddle against fast combo, tron, scapeshift, or control. You need to have some strategy to combat at least some of these decks in your 75.

AND you need some way to deal with artifact hate.
Cards like Abrade (with its lack of opportunity cost), or Ancient Grudge (used twice) can completely wreck your deck.
To deal with the problem you either need a transformative sideboard, that allows you to win in game 2 without your artifacts, or some way to protect those precious artifacts.

(And i would add some more lands as curving out to 3 mana by turn 3 seems unlikely let alone getting to 4 mana on turn 4 - which is needed for your Thornbite Staff - use some hypergeometric calculator to see the exact effects of your land count)
