Maybe Tombstalker is an option for a 2-2 or 3-1 split for Reflector Mage ?

Good luck at the open!

So I'm prepping for the Philadelphia Open in a month and wanna go back to playing GDS over my usual Hollow One since I think Shadow is just better positioned right now so I'm updating my list after a year away from the deck and noticed most lists are on 4 Anglers instead of 2-2 split on Tasigur, the Golden Fang s and Gurmag Angler s. Just curious why the change like even a 1-3 Tasigur-Gurmag Split makes sense. My logic being that why have that card as a 4 of when Reflector Mage exists and is so prevalent in modern right now

I recommend swapping the Mana Tithe for a playset of Meddling Mage . Mage provides a more proactive way to interact with the opponent than tithe. If you are attached to the tithes then you could go down to two Reflector Mage and the Smuggler's Copter .

tpmains on to Dredge or to Human

Based on your three criteria, i think Humans would be a better choice. Here's why, broken down by what you want:

  1. Resilient- Humans is one of the most resilient decks out there right now. You have a lot of choices to include and ways to protect your creatures. Meddling Mage , Reflector Mage , and Kitesail Freebooter are amazing creatures that slow down or stop your opponent. Add in the fact that the mana base for humans can cast pretty much every card in the deck without trouble and you get resilience. Dredge, on the other hand, is very susceptible to graveyard hate. While dredge has much more of a combo aspect and can easily win game one, especially when people aren't prepared for it, it becomes weaker after sideboarding when opponents bring in their hate cards.

  2. Will get better over time- Let's face it, WOTC thinks that dredge was a huge mistake. They rarely make cards to support it. The latest additions were Cathartic Reunion , Insolent Neonate , and Prized Amalgam . WOTC does love humans, as they are the main creature found in the game. You're going to get new humans printed every set and some of those might be good.

  3. Good against Jund, Tron, and Shadow- This one is more of a toss-up, but I think that humans is probably better off against these three. The three creatures I mentioned in the first section help protect against the removal that all three of these decks play. Furthermore, all three are prone to graveyard hate out of the sideboard and humans doesn't need to worry about that as much.

So, in conclusion, based on your criteria and the statements above, I believe that humans would be a better choice for you.

Hey covingtonjt,

Here might be some cards you can consider using:

Most of these cards are super cheap to grab and would definitely boost up the amount of value you can use from Roon. Favorite Bant card of all time is Wargate , it can grab you any permanent from your deck and since you are running Eternal Witness you can grab it back from the grave to reuse again! Same with Chord of Calling as well.

Hope that can help and feel free to ask for any more advice if ya need!

You're a bit vulnerable to the removal in Modern, Path to Exile, Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Liliana of the Veil, Terminate, Cast Down, Reflector Mage, and Dismember are the biggest ones out there. You can play against these spells while working with heroic with cards like Apostle's Blessing, Stave Off, Brave the Elements, and Feat of Resistance. Against cards like a Liliana of the Veil you could run Windswept Heath and Dryad Arbor or spells that funtion in a similar way to Cartouche of Solidarity

Terminus is the go to sweeper right now, but outside an effect of Eerie Interlude there's not much you can do against that, but against regular sweepers like Damnation or Supreme Verdict, a copy or two of Heroic Intervention or a similar effect belongs somewhere in your main deck or sideboard
