Burrenton Forge-Tender Discussion

Hello there! Potential sideboard choices:

SynergyBuild on The Western Way of War

3 weeks ago

Oh, and control is a surprisingly easy matchup in white, I just sideboard in Pithing Needle for Liliana of the Veil or Celestial Colonnade, Mana Tithe for the idiots that tap out to board wipe, and Luminarch Ascension as the preferred late game sideboard finisher.

I would change the sideboard up a bit, with Stony Silence being fun Affinity/Eldrazi Tron hate, and one of the only commonly used ones, I quite like a single copy of both Stony Silence and Kataki, War's Wage against artifacts, a Rest in Peace and a Tormod's Crypt, finishing the specific hate with a copy of Burrenton Forge-Tender and a Kor Firewalker. 3xPithing Needle is also fine. This leaves six open spaces, with what I would fill with 3x of Fragmentize and 2x of Luminarch Ascension and a single of Mana Tithe.

The finishing sideboard would be:

1xStony Silence

1xKataki, War's Wage

1xRest in Peace

1xTormod's Crypt

1xKor Firewalker

1xBurrenton Forge-Tender

3xPithing Needle

2xLuminarch Ascension


1xMana Tithe

N4kk1 Thanks for linking the deck, the differences in the sideboards from me and that deck (and the big debates I keep having with myself about my sideboard) are

1 Phyrexian Revoker vs 1 Stony Silence

1 Yixlid Jailer vs 1 Rest in Peace

2nd Reclamation Sage vs 1 Fracturing Gust

1 Kor Firewalker vs 1 Burrenton Forge-Tender

1 Melira, Sylvok Outcast and 1 Elvish Champion vs 2 Path to Exile

You should run Rest in Peace in your sideboard. Yixlid Jailer doesn't stop Living End, and only having Scavenging Ooze can be rough considering that, with a good hand, they can have their graveyard out at instant speed on the fourth turn and beyond (they can do it earlier, but it requires an even greater hand lol) and can get rid of your Ooze before you can windmill slam it and activate it after tutoring with Chord. The Rests are basically a wash out against graveyard decks, though.

Stony Silence needs to be in your board. Rec Sage isn't fast enough to stop Affinity, and I don't think you have enough time to Chord your 1 Kataki against that deck as Affinity kills the same turn you do but has access to a complete sweeper against your deck in Whipflare and tend to run Galvanic Blast mainboard. Silence completely shuts it down, and has a nice benefit of messing with Lantern decks too, so I strongly recommend it. Burrenton Forge-Tender would also be a decent option against Whipflare as well, as if it gets cast against you, you will basically lose unless you have the godliest of godhands (double Archdruid out before Affinity draws or can cast Whipflare).

To add those in... I don't like Thragtusk. I don't know what matchups you'd pull that for except Burn, and Firewalker already helps in your red matchups. 1 Red Sage could go, as well. Yixlid Jailer could go for 1 Rest in Peace, though it'd be preferable to run two.

Your mainboard looks good though. Hopefully at some point you can get some Cavern of Souls, because they'll solve most of your problems with casting your creatures.

On Burrenton Forge-Tender vs. Selfless Spirit: It's not that one is better than the other. They're different. E.g., Selfless Spirit protects your dudes. Burrenton Forge-Tender protects your face and sometimes (or often, depending on your meta) your dudes.

I missed the maindeck Reclamation Sage, as you had asked me to focus on your sideboard.

As far as what to pull for Essence Warden, it's all about your other sideboard choices, and what you need most. Without a detailed understanding of your win percentages and meta, I have no idea. Here's a great article though, on generic sideboarding philosophy.

You're welcome.

Looking at that list it ran nonr of my first suggestions, what i would recommend from that list is definitely 1-3 Cavern of Souls mainboard, its actually a huge lifesaver in tribal decks liek elves, goblins(yay guide), faeries and merfolk.

Plus, cavern does what Choke wants to do for no mana or sideboard space

He also runs most of the mentioned white cards like Path to Exile Vizier of Remedies and Temple Garden,

as far as Burrenton Forge-Tender vs Selfless Spirit the 5-0 elves from August 22 o linked runs 1 of each in side, so i would reiterate to run both

As far as what to cut, Craterhoof Behemoth is really more of an edh powerhouse and too slow for modern, dont let the set reprint fool you, and Path to Exile definitely seems like a must-have in sideboard

TheSurgeon I thought Abrupt Decay wasn't very popular right now? good idea, though. I think it might take up too much space, you really want 3-4 copies.

goblinguiderevealpls What is Bow of Nylea good against? It seems very slow. I don't run Feed the Clan because I usually don't have big creatures, I would need to pump them with Ezuri, Renegade Leader which doesn't seem consistent enough. I like Kitchen Finks in part because I can tutor for it. I might try Beast Within, but what matchups is it better than Fiend Hunter or Reclamation Sage? Also, what do you think I should cut to add it in?

clayperce Is Burrenton Forge-Tender really better than Selfless Spirit? As affinity hate goes, I have Fracturing Gust and Stony Silence, and a Reclamation Sage in the maindeck, along with tutors. I think Melira, Sylvok Outcast seems too narrow, but if Infect becomes popular, I will probably add it in. I like Fiend Hunter because I can tutor for it. I do want to try to fit Essence Warden in somewhere, but it seems like it would just get bolted. What do you recommend cutting for it?

In addition to the standard disclaimers (I've goldfished but haven't played the deck IRL, I have no idea on your meta, etc), I need to mention I play Ponza and Infect, not Elves. Nevertheless, here are some thoughts from on the other side of the table ...

  • Burrenton Forge-Tender is REALLY good against me.
  • I don't know how your Affinity/Blue Steel/etc matchup are, but I like the idea of having some fetchable Artifact hate rather than just the Fracturing Gusts. Kataki, War's Wage, maybe?
  • If you bring in Kitchen Finks regularly, you might also consider Melira, Sylvok Outcast. It's probably too inconsistent unless Infect is seeing a resurgence in your meta. But it's REALLY tough to deal with.
  • With the White sideboard, I'd expect to see Path to Exile. If Fiend Hunter is enough though, cool!
  • Seems like Essence Warden would be insane in a bunch of match-ups.
  • I ran Choke for quite a while and found it to be really good. My only caution is to beware of Spreading Seas on your Lands. It probably doesn't matter with all your Dorks though.

Draw well!
