Thrun, the Last Troll Discussion
3 days ago
Honestly the deck I could easily see abuse JTMS would be Miracles. With Opt back in the format, this could really be a thing. Other than that I agree with MWorl91 : the format is fast enough to deal with him. And there's already a good amount of unfair decks running around (in my own meta at least) like Storm, Tron and Vizier CoCombo that won't care much about him.
What concerns Midrange decks, I fully agree Jace is a complete nightmare. However, most Midrange deck run green and green gives you access to Thrun, the Last Troll. There's almost no way for UWx builds to beat him unless you run things like Blessed Alliance somewhere in the 75.
If you want to make Control powerful again in Modern, the best way to do that IN MY HOLY OPINION is to bring back Counterspell. It's CMC is restrictive enough and control really lacks a good way deal with noncreature spells permanently. Remand is just tempo and feels really bad on a 1 cmc spell, Mana Leak is fine but gets less and less useful the longer the game goes (strange feeling for a control player), Spell Snare and Spell Pierce are really situational, same for Dispel and Swan Song, etc. So yes you have Logic Knot but your graveyard isn't an endless source of cards and if you run Snapcaster Mages it's kind of a nombo.
Let's let WotC have their money, then let's let them reban BBE and JTMS and let's beg them to reprint Counterspell in a Modern legal set :D

- She's a great early blocker.
- I love the card filtering.
- The incidental lifegain is superb ... it's almost always more than Kitchen Finks, because nobody ever bothers to Skullcrack a land drop.
- The synergy with Tireless Tracker and Chandra, Torch of Defiance is always good, and often insanely good.
All that said, with Jund rising (due to Bloodbraid Elf) we're sure to see a bunch more Tarmogoyf soon, and Courser is pretty terrible in that match up, since it gives them an Enchantment and a Creature for Goyf. So a few weeks from now, I could easily see having some mix of Finks and Jadelight Ranger in those slots. And without 3x Courser, I might drop one of the Chandras too ...
I've never been a fan of Huntmaster of the Fells Flip. I mean, it's a great card (it's a 4-of in my Modern Wolves funsies deck) and I know a lot of folks love it. But it's just never worked for me in Ponza.
I really like Pia and Kiran Nalaar; not running them is just a meta call. I'm on 2x Obstinate Baloth for now (due to Burn and Lili), and Chameleon Colossus and Thrun, the Last Troll are both regulars in those slots. But I could easily see running P&K there ... especially if Affinity becomes a big part of the meta, since Thopters are one of the few tools we have to stop Etched Champion.
Hope that helps!

With Jace and Bloodbraid in the format, I figured Ponza could be better with the elf. I also added a copy of Thrun to fight Jace, as he can't be bounced.

Ironic isn't it ;) Of course wrath is actually worse than Day of Judgment in Modern (as discussed in the description). Besides killing our own Thrun, the Last Troll, Wrath is also more likely to get named by Meddling Mage than Day and hits virtually nothing additional.

Steelspike: using board wipes doesn't help Zurgo Helmsmasher unless your opponent is dumb enough to block him with all their creatures. Zurgo Helmsmasher has to deal damage to a creature before it dies, before he gets a counter. nobody is going to use more than 1 creature to block something that is indestructible and doesnt have trample. also, i'd have to say Assault Suit is far from "best voltron equipment of all time". far, far from it. its only advantage is that you give your opponents something to attack each other with, without any drawback. but once the creature gets back to you, its a mere +2/+2. theres a LOT of equipment cards that do much more than that.

When picking commander. Consider what's its worst enemy. You would really hate for your commander to get turned into a tree (Song of the Dryads). So hexproof is important so Uril, the Miststalker is great choice for that. But there's always spell and effect that destroy that don't target like Wrath of God son consider Thrun, the Last Troll because you can regenerate him. But that's still not good enough because what if your opponents playing black and has all three edict effects in his deck, like Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and Butcher of Malakir, then you got another problem that is a common problem for voltron commander's. So I suggest. Sigarda, Host of Herons

Thanks to LordNeely, lukas96, Snap157, xaerusblade and colton815 for all of the feedback! Many of you mentioned Avatar of the Resolute and I agree completely. I made this with cards I owned and did not own any Avatar, but I will work on acquiring some. I am cutting the utility lands but not Treetop Village. That land has been fantastic. It avoid sweepers and has trample which are 2 very relevant things. Sure it comes into play tapped, but I don't always get to play on curve due to disruption from my opponent. They could turn 1 thoughtseize my 1 drop leaving me with a 2 drop and nothing to do on turn 1, but playing a treetop on turn 1 is a very relevant play. It has also won me a good chunk of games. I will need to look into acquiring Scavenging Ooze as I do not own any. It is certainly a great card and would fit the deck while providing some very good utility. I am not sure Thrun, the Last Troll is worth the price tag (at least from my point of view). Great Sable Stag has been an all-star out of the sideboard. It wrecks Death's Shadow and many UB strategies. I'll have to do some testing with Groundbreaker. I like the idea of a 2/2 split between it and Leatherback Baloth and Groundbreaker is a much better top-deck when you need to get through the last couple points of damage. I agree with lukas96, my curve is much too low to have a need for Nykthos. xaerusblade your deck looks very sweet, and I like your SB suggestion of Shapers' Sanctuary. I have played with that card in standard and you can see the pain on your opponent's face when they kill your creature and that on the battlefield. I'll be considering and playtesting many of the other suggestions (Vines of Vastwood, Dungrove Elder, Apostle's Blessing etc..). Thanks again!
