Not Your Typical Land Control; FirePox!

The deck uses a Blood Moon & Genju of the Spires combo, for reoccurring land-destruction. The deck also uses Smallpox & Fulminator Mage, with Boom.

Crucible of Worlds and Ghost Quarter, for even more consistency.

Not a huge fan of Fulminator Mage because playing a sorcery speed creature on turn 3 and then letting the opponent play a huge threat is pretty huge. I’ve watched Corey play and he’s actually been running Field of Ruin, so if I were to be running any land hate it would probably be that over Mage. As for the Delve cards, you’re right and I’m still testing right now and may switch Angler out for either more spells or possibly Torrential Gearhulk

Cool List. I would be a bit concerned about having 6 cards that rely heavily on the graveyard though, 2x Logic Knot, 2x Tasigur, the Golden Fang, and 2x Gurmag Angler. I think Corey Burkhart has settled on 2x logic knot and 2x Tasigur in order to not overtax the graveyard, yet still have the option of an early creature threat.

I also see that you have 3x Dreadbore in your sideboard. Your mainboard has 7 counterspells and 7 burnspells which should take care of any Planeswalker threats. I think these three spots should probably be filled with Fulminator Mage instead.

Good luck with the build :)

Great deck Macaroni_artist. Have you considered Blossoming Defense in the sideboard for protection and Fulminator Mage in the sideboard for additional anti-Tron?

I love how you've refined the deck. It plays a lot more streamlined and consistent, so excellent job ncjhou.

1) I definitely agree with your choice of cantrips. Opt really helps smooth out your draw, and the scry is a definite bonus. Before Ixalan I used Censor (for cycling) but Opt is even better.
2) Alright, I'll be curious to see this deck transition from standard to modern.
3) I think I would switch out 4 Ammit Eternal to transition in 2 Death Barons and 2 Lord of the Accursed.
4) From my experience, Trespasser's Curse is actually worse than it seems. Against token spam decks, if you can get it out early enough, it does massive damage. But if you're drawing it in the later game, it's kind of useless. In the sideboard, I personally try to avoid cards that are only good at a specific point (that's why I hate Leyline of the Void and Leyline of Sanctity). But, at the end it's your decision whether to keep it or not.
5) I would probably agree, but I use Blink of an Eye rather than Consign most of the time.
6) I'll look into replacements for Vraska's Contempt, but my other two suggestions don't work in the colors. I normally use Dreadbore and Terminate, but those aren't in the colors so let me look into something else...but to be truthful, just bouncing a creature/planeswalker to their hand and countering it when it enters the battlefield normally work for me.
About the sideboard: Leyline of the Void and Leyline of Sanctity are good against certain types of decks. Fulminator Mage is very useful in the sideboard.
Otherwise, I have no other suggestions. Keep building and tweaking!
This deck could become very standard/modern competitive, so nice edits, ncjhou. -magicsheep

Exquisite brew, excellent deck Wino!

I played against a family member who was piloting Monogreen Tron. Lost the first match because I couldn't compete against someone with 10 mana on Turn 4. Luckily, you planned your sideboard really well and the second AND third match were won with Fulminator Mage.

I'd give it a +2 if I could :)

Have you considered Pithing Needle for the sideboard?

I've been testing against Tron a bit more and it's still a struggle post-board even with 4 Ceremonious Rejection. Rejection is amazing, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a very difficult card to beat. And because of Sanctum of Ugin, they have a lot of ways to find Ulamog. My current approach of trying to counter everything they play after they get Tron online isn't really working. I could try Fulminator Mage or more Field of Ruin or Molten Rain, but I've never found land destruction to fast enough to matter. And Surgical Extraction doesn't seem reliable enough.
