Burrenton Forge-Tender Discussion

Here are some options depending on what you're seeing:

4x Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void - probably can add all 4 copies blind if you plan on playing on MTGO or anything soon.

1-2 Damping Sphere - for Tron

1-2 Burrenton Forge-Tender or Kambal, Consul of Allocation for Burn

1-2 Abrade or Angrath's Rampage for enemy Grafdigger's Cage.

I'm not sure what it's specifically for - seems to be a value card vs. the GY decks running around, but I see a lot of folks fitting in 2 Kaya's Guile which also fits your plan nicely.

2 Anger of the Gods for zoo, Lurrus, and RDW decks.

2 Collective Brutality as a versatile in vs. Burn and control.

Thank you so much for making this. I recommend replacing Soltari Priest for Burrenton Forge-Tender.

As a previous Devoted Company player, I can safely tell you the matchup against burn really sucks. That being said, I have found that Burrenton Forge-Tender is a great sideboard silver bullet to tutor for.

I've seen Qasali Ambusher do some crazy stuff before. The card is better than most would give it credit for, even in a format like modern (especially now, when the format is much more creature-centric and a bit slower).

Anyway, one thing I wanted to point out is that I used to play fair GW aggro/company lists a few years back (when the format was kinda in a similar spot, just without stoneforge and wrenn&sixx..) and I always found this little card - Shield of the Oversoul - to actually be good much of the time. I went from playing 1 just for shits to nearly always having one in those types of decks. I am well aware of the reasons against playing such cards (2-for-1's etc), but I dunno...THAT card always impressed me, esp in GW decks with lords like Wilt-Leaf Liege . I really loved putting it on a Voice of Resurgence or Liege. :)

Dromoka's Command is another card I always tried to fit in as a 1-of, but that's a more replace-able effect I guess (although it's versatility in these decks is great, esp when you consider it's a "counterspell" vs targeted or even aoe burn spells, w/ upside). Burrenton Forge-Tender is also nice to have in the board for those pesky red spells/decks.

Btw, may I ask why you are not using Noble Hierarch instead of the Birds? I find Hierarch to be one of the best creatures in the game, with that exalted ability being more meaningful on her than any other exalted creature. I realize she adds a huge amount to the cost of the deck, though. Cavern of Souls is another obvious one to me, but it poses the same problem as Hierarch...

Happy to see you made my sack of cards into something! If you're looking for sideboard tech, I think good, budget options are Tormod's Crypt , Dovin's Veto , Burrenton Forge-Tender / Kor Firewalker , and Damping Sphere .

Thanks JKRice! I definitely agree on the Pacifism . At MNM I pulled them out every match since no one I played (except one guy playing Humans) had NO creatures coming out at all. I lost to a Rack deck and tied (we ran out of time) to a Mill deck. I feel like I need so more removal to counteract all the crazy board states people are making with enchantments and artifacts (and activated abilities of lands). Oblivion Ring totally saved me . . . or at least delayed the inevitable a few times. I am pretty new to Magic and a total noob at Modern, so I appreciate the thoughts. I like the idea of Burrenton Forge-Tender especially with the Mono Red I was seeing.
