Forked Bolt Discussion
3 weeks ago
thank you ToolmasterOfBrainerd for the advice!
Yeah, I know Remand can be good as well as Electrolyze, but I am not sure if I want to keep the Forked Bolt. I am toying with the idea of a 3rd Terminate or a MB Dispel, possibly even 1 Logic Knot. I could maybe go 2 Logic Knots and go down a Mana Leak.
Pretty much what I am getting so far is that game 1 is a L to zoo when it comes to Grixis Delver.

After looking up a few decklists, it doesn't seem like Big Zoo is running Tarmogoyf. This is good for Grixis. Because then they only have Loxodon Smiter and Knight of the Reliquary to be bigger than Anger of the Gods, and maybe some fringe like 1 Baneslayer Angel. I think I'd approach the matchup like 5 color humans, except that counterspells are still useful. Spell Snare especially.
It also looks like Bloodbraid is taking the spot of Collected Company. This is even better because I used to board in Dispel against Zoo because of Path to Exile and Collected Company. Now I will no longer look silly for drawing Dispel against their hand of all creatures.
With your deck, I'd venture to say it's less a problem of sideboarding and more a problem with mainboard tuning. Electrolyze and Forked Bolt line up very poorly against Zoo. Remand doesn't really do anything against them. They're all great cards vs Mardu Pyromancer, but I don't think I like them against most of modern right now.
I really like the Spellskites in your sideboard vs Zoo. Definitely board those in. They can sit in front of Wild Nacatl all game long until they redirect a Path to Exile from Gurmag Angler to themselves. I admit I don't like Spellskite vs the meta, but vs Zoo it's amazing.

Volcanic Fallout will not kill your creatures. i do not think you need Flame Slash because your creatures can kill that stuff on their own. Shock is not good enough in modern. so i say you look at 4x Rift Bolt and some Forked Bolt.

TheMadRocketeer thank you so much for your answer, but I think that you don't get the point of the deck. In most cases I never attack with my creatures, almost all the damage is dealt by Impact Tremors or Boggart Shenanigans. Let's suppose a good hand: T1: play mountain, exile Simian Spirit Guide and cast impact tremors T2: play mountain, cast Skirk Prospector and Goblin Arsonist - 2 damage T3: play mountain, cast Boggart Shenanigans T4: play mountain,cast Dragon Fodder and sacrifice the tokens with the prospector, so you have 2 mana and 4 damage to the opponent, cast Hordeling Outburst and repeat (other 6 damages and 3 mana), tap the last mountain and use the mana to cast Empty the Warrens, cloned 3 times (6 goblins--> 12 damages and 6 mana) ==> good game
That's why I don't need creatures that pump my goblins, because they are constantly sacrificed somehow and never attacks
Foundry Street Denizen actually can be lethal in this deck, thanks for the advice

This looks identical to my old list. I’ve moved away from roast in favor of Harvest Pyre because instant speed is so nice against reality smasher. A fourth remand is a must instead of the second logic knot, especially if you’re going with pyre, as four delve effects are tough to use consistently.
You mention you want to beat Jund. If that’s the case, I can’t recommend Vedalken Shackles enough. Counterflux is too narrow, so I’d recommend that to cut. Storm is probably bringing in empty the warrens anyways, which staticaster handles amazingly. Flux isn’t good enough for bloodbraid, especially on the draw. Shackles takes their great creatures and manlands and turns it against them. Force them to use their removal on their own creatures.

Ok so currently I am running
3x Forked Bolt
I played a tournament last Saturday, did bad the first round against RG Eldrazi (didn't see that one coming!) from one of my friends. Any suggestions to beat that?
