True-Name Nemesis Discussion

Have you ever considered True-Name Nemesis?

Skeletal Changeling IS in your color identity if you need a cheap ninja that regenerates.
Double Strike makes Yuriko's card draw and card damage trigger twice. So will a Strionic Resonator.
I've had good luck using cheap fliers with an ETB, like Baleful Strix to use ninjitsu on. I get ETB value, usually able to pick a target with no fliers, NINJITSU!, and then I can cast again for another ETB.

Here's something to consider, instead of Glorious Anthem effects what about more tools to make the deck more aggressive. Yes, +1/+1 for your creatures does help with the combat phase, but consider that you only need to attack for 10 points of 'damage'.
Here's some thing to look at:
Another attack vector:
Crucible of Worlds
Pretty expensive but worth it:
Survival of the Fittest

How would you deal with True-Name Nemesis? It seems red is incapable of removing TNN and it easily stops this deck from winning..

Yea, 17 lands is pretty low, didn't really notice that before.
I'd cut a few Land Taxes. It's not always amazing, and you never wanna see more than one in a game. It's not essential to the gameplan, so running 3 is way too excessive imo. 1 is fine though.
You are currently running 9 anthems. Is that too many? Never actually played tokens myself, so I have no clue. Maybe simply cutting the last Crusade could work out.
Also, have you considered running an Isochron Scepter? It could win some games due to sheer lockdown. If you want additional support for it, remove Gather the Townsfolk and add Raise the Alarm for a very strong value engine in the lategame.
Also consider more good removal, at least in the sideboard. Path to Exile or Condemn for a budget option adds more light removal. Oblivion Ring or Council's Judgment can really safe you against some creatures. Emrakul and Marit Lage in particular, but counsil's also deals with True-Name Nemesis, which is nice.
I would prolly cut like this:
You can change less or more, depending on what you want. After all, you are the one playing the deck ;)

Looking to complete a few modern and legacy decks. Namely a few things for maverick and death and taxes (+ a couple True-Name Nemesis in legacy and GW value town (+ Engineered Explosives and Cavern of Souls for amulet titan) in modern. My binder is completely up to date and I will list my completed EDH decks. Will pretty much only trade those single cards in decks for bigger pieces I need. You can find all the cards I'm looking for in my wants list in my binder. Thanks for looking!
Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions!

When Battlebond released, MTGGoldfish made an Estimated Value article like usual, but keep in mind this was right after set release. The important thing to remember from this article is that the reprints hit a floor ~3-6 months after release and then rebound in price. Currently, its been about 2 months since release, meaning cards have the opportunity to drop further, but still rebound in price. The important bit for your pull is that True-Name Nemesis will only go up, as reprinting is VERY unlikely and it is near the low point for price. That said, if you wanna buy a couple boxes of Guilds of Ravnica when it comes out, selling it is still a fine idea as the price increase will probably be pretty slow since its an extremely expensive foil already.
Anyway, the part I'm more interested here is the current Estimated Value of a box, as I mostly forgot how valueable this set is and I bet you can pick up boxes for pretty cheap. According to MTGStocks, the EV of a pack is $4.28 on average and the EV of a box of Battlebond is $154.08 on Average, meaning if you can get a box at (or likely below) MSRP you'll probably get your money back unless you are extremely unlucky like me and pull 3 Grothama, All-Devouring and all your rares are Goblin Razerunners. This is just the average EV (when based on Market price it drops a little btw), but remember that most of these cards have nowhere to go but up, especially the mythics, and then you've got the crazy lottery cards like True-Name Nemesis. Not only is True-Name an absurd amount of money, but Based on this 7 foil mythics are worth $60 or more, and after that, even the cheapest one, Grothama, All-Devouring is a $15 foil. There are also a few in the $50 range, a few in the $40s, etc. 6 rares have foils worth over $45, and after that there are a few more surprisingly expensive foil rares such as Archon of Valor's Reach at $25. And dont forget that Partners come in pairs, and foil partners are in foil pairs! That means if you pull the $44 foil Rowan Kenrith you also got the $48 foil Will Kenrith. If you pull the $13 foil Pir, Imaginative Rascal, you also got the $10 foil Toothy, Imaginary Friend.
Overall, I think buying a box of Battlebond is probably worth it just for value, and even more if you can convince enough people to come draft it with you (with you of course taking all the cards if you bought the box yourself). And Battelbond boxes are still easily available for under $100 with little effort, and if you want to fight a bidding war on eBay, there are currently auctions for way under $100, but obviously those prices are going up before the auction ends.

So I pulled a True-Name Nemesis tonight, and I'm not sure what to do. I don't think it's going to get printed anytime soon. What do people think?
Also, this is just my opinion, but if you have extra $ lying around, getting a box of Battlebond seems like a good idea in terms of EV maybe? Not only do you get the chance to pull legit lottery cards (a lot of foil rares or mythics go anywhere from 30 to 100$) but their is just a lot of value it seems.
Interested to hear what people think. Thanks for your opinions and advice!
