DEER on Temur Bloodbraid (feat Jace)

We play very similar lists!! I do like your sideboard alot though, especially the inclusion of Izzet Staticaster. I'm curious though as to why you're running Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and no Noble Hierarch? I would love if you cross compared your deck to mine Temur Moon - Jace and Friends, and see if we can talk about the differences. Otherwise nice list!

AloneTogether on Temur Bloodbraid (feat Jace)

marowakcity - i dont think the deck can get aggressive fast enough to outrace the actual aggressive decks, so having more midrangey options are pretty important. Also, thats what the 6 islands are for :D

InfinityMinusOne - I havent done any testing for this at all yet actually. So I couldnt tell you what works or not. That being said, Izzet Staticaster is there for lingering souls, but it also helps out against decks like infect and surprisingly, storm. I like Supreme Will a lot! I just forgot about it! I might drop 1 Izzet Charm and the Beast Within for the wills. Beast could be alright, but honestly seems bad on a cascade

Izzet Staticaster gives us more or less the same creature lock. Have access to an additional bit of removal in Bolt is also invaluable at making sure we keep all the aggro decks that are so prevelant in check. We would also lose Daring Buccaneer which is establish our most aggressive starts.

Another pet favorite card of mine that I love for dealing with 1/1 creatures is Izzet Staticaster. It's a repeatable 1 damage wrath that also serves as a blocker. Of course, if you're only looking at Red or White, it's right out, but you still have a ton of options.

Another thing to look for is "functional reprints." These are cards that serve essentially identical purposes, but have different names. They can increase the redundancy of your deck. For example, Ghostly Prison and Propaganda are identical effects, but in different colors (and both are pretty good against tokens). If you want to change up your colors a bit (by splashing blue), you can run:

and then laugh when he tries to attack with Goblins. Obviously these don't help you against things like Goblin Grenade, but they are effective token stoppers. With 12 of them, you are very likely to have a copy of one of these by the time your third turn rolls around.

Onyx77: Hey! Thanks for the feedback here, main reason of this is because White Sun's Zenith is supposed to be a sideboard against slow decks that run Izzet Staticaster, the 2/2 Cats will avoid this removal and threaten the board.

OOBS on Izzet is NO.1

Maybe I'm reading into this wrong, but I believe this is a budget deck, though you certainly bring some great points. Mutagenic Growth is pretty good stuff for a deck going all out on tempo. Izzet Staticaster definitely helps from the sideboard against Affinity, Elves, and Counters Company among other decks in the meta.

SilverIronMan on A Knight On The Falls

While the main plan of knightfall is to out value and out tempo our opponent, some of the cards that are used for this purpose are pretty toolbox-y. However, this isn't the main theme of knightfall. Therefore, I definitely don't plan to play more than 1x Eldritch Evolution, but that 1x is Not the flex sideboard spot (That's Courser of Kruphix and Reclamation Sage).

Eldritch Evolution is reasonable against fair, non-blue decks, but mostly, it's there for combo decks (Knightfall's worst matchups). Due to the sheer number of creatures in this deck, there is usually some creature that helps out in the matchup and is worth tutoring for. While you could try something like Chord of Calling for this reason, Chord of Calling is usually at least 2 turns slower.

It might be a little easier to say a few matchups that I'd bring it in for (not a full list): Affinity, Burn, Jund, Junk, Tron, Lantern Control, Dredge, Infect, Elves, and Living End. If you look at that list, Burn, Tron, Elves and Living End can be some pretty challenging matchups. The card does a bit more than double duty.

Affinity is a pretty favored matchup. For reference at the Modern Open, I played 4 matches against them and lost 1 game (albeit, I usually lose a few more game 1s). This seems to happen for a few reasons.

The biggest reason is because of Spell Queller. Spell Queller stops a relevant spell while being bigger (before buffs) than their fliers. Of course, it can also be flashed in before blocks with no spell on the stack. Therefore, I can not stress enough how much of an all-star this card is.

Knight of the Reliquary is also quite good in this matchup. It can tutor up a Ghost Quarter for any of they're relevant man-lands, and a Gavony Township to make Birds of Paradise trade.

Between 2x Qasali Pridemage, 2x Reflector Mage, and 4x Path to Exile, there's typically a bit of removal to handle the first threat (and sometimes a few after the first one).

The main plan is just to stall as long as you can and make as many favorable trades as possible. Hopefully, you can create enough of a board state where they lose too much by attacking (aka a board stall) and Knightfall rarely loses from a board stall.

Therefore, so long as you don't draw too many Scavenging Ooze and Voice of Resurgence and they don't have a super speedy draw (Mox Opal...), then game 1 can be pretty close. Of course, post-board Knightfall becomes favored.

-3x Scavenging Ooze, -3x Voice of Resurgence, -2x Retreat to Coralhelm for +1x Eldritch Evolution, +2x Izzet Staticaster (Best Card and generally what Eldritch Evolution finds), +2x Kitchen Finks(The gain 2 life and +1 power sells me on it over Voice of Resurgence even at the cost of one mana (Mostly because both suck in this matchup)), +1x Manglehorn, +1x Reclamation Sage, +1x Reflector Mage

Post-Board, around 1/3 of the deck is removal. Of course, once again, the goal is to stall for as long as possible. Once again, the longer the game, the higher the probability that knightfall wins.
