Inquisition of Kozilek Discussion

Always glad to see another Tokens player!

As far as your list goes, I wouldn't recommend Teysa. She is a tad slow and inconsistent. I would personally take those out and replace them with 2 more Inquisition of Kozilek.

I would run your suite of removal/discard/counterspells something like this:

Abrupt Decay x3

Maelstrom Pulse x2 OR Mainboard x1 Sideboard x1

Fatal Push x3

Murderous Cut x1 Sideboard x2

Damnation x1

Mana Leak x3

Spell Snare x2 Sideboard x1

Countersquall x2

Cryptic Command x2

Inquisition of Kozilek x3

Ancestral Vision x3

I would not run Serum Visions and Thought Scour alongside one another as playsets; at most 3-to-3, but I say cut Visions and keep the playset of Scour.

What a mess!

So first you need to decide if this is going to be BG/x or if it's going to be Grixis Control. The way it is now, it's a horrible mash up of both worlds with no direction.

Second you need to ask yourself honestly what does BUG offer that BG/x or Grixis doesn't.

I don't think Serum Visions and Thought Scour are a fair trade for Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize.

The sideboard options Blue offers are minimal.

You can run Spellskite with off mana and while Snappy is good, you're trading a lot of fire power for it.

Now as far as the good goes. Creeping Tar Pit is rather nice.

I just don't see many reason to run BUG over running BG(/x) or Fae with Fatal Push.

As far as cutting Liliana of the Veil out for counterspells. The deck doesn't want counters as bad as it wants hand & board control. You're forcing 1 archtype into another that both do the same thing but in very different ways.

"I don't want to play Dark Confidant because of the fast meta. Playing Bob will get you ahead on cards, but it will also kill you."

This statement is absolute rubbish. For the 1 game Bob may loose you, he'll win you 10 more. Besides the combination of Dark Confidant and Grim Flayer is down right lethal & offers you control over what you flip. ...well it's okay though BUG offers a decent replacement Painful Truths. Not as good but awesome when it works out.

You might want to maindeck 3 Inquisition of Kozilek for T1 hand disruption. With Gitaxian Probe banned in modern now, ways to peek into your opponents hand is more valuable than ever. It'll also destroy curve.

You probably also would rather want two Spell Snares in the maindeck. I also definitely recommend including a couple Spell Pierces in your sideboard.

Spellskite needs to be delegated back to the sideboard. It's a good card, but not good enough to maindeck. A third Abrupt Decay might be needed, exchange that for the Spellskite.

I would run an additional copy of Maelstrom Pulse, either in the main or sideboard.

I'd predict to see a lot of decks floating around. Between Jund and Abzan there's going to be a lot of Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize and Liliana of the Veil. You're going to get your money's worth out of your Leyline of Sanctity. I'd strongly recommend tracking down a couple of Stony Silences before you head out. Tron and Affinity are both a decent part of the Modern Meta right now, and you might need to keep them in check as well. Good luck! I hope you enjoy the tournament, and as a nevadan myself I hope you enjoy Vegas. :-)

So when it comes to hand disruption there is Liliana of the Veil,Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Collective Brutality,Kolaghan's Command,Reality Smasher that are all played in a lot of the more popular decks. So Wilt-Leaf Liege or Loxodon Smiter might be good main or sideboard tech.

TheAlexGnan on God Sram It!

So, I just finished reading an article on eggs and cheeri0s (a kind of comparison) on modernnexus. And there, even with Sram, cheerios was literally called a "weak" deck, because (as I mentioned somewhere above) its incredibly vulnerable to cheap spot removal. That was pretty sobering at first, but then I thought "well thats always been the case, its really nothing new about cheerios, and even though Sram adds consistency, he is just as vulnerable.

Now in my opinion (in terms of future playability) is very simply: does the Silence plan work on a consistent basis?

Let me clarify this: the Silence plan is different from other combo protection in that if it resolves, your combo is really 100% safe. if you go off, you just do, its out of your opponents hand. Which means, its arguably a much more powerful form of protection seeing as you can potentially go off in the same turn with very little mana.

It really boils down to this. You have consistency covered nicely. but if you cant protect your enabler, it will be tough going.

The article basically argues that the deck really does fold to a T1 Inquisition of Kozilek or a bolt at the ready.

just playing devil's advocate here ;)
