Modern Saint1129

Mail day change!

Got 1 Gideon Jura in the mail today, so I swapped around some cards.

I took out 3 Mana Leak s and replaced them with 1 copy Negate , that Gideon Jura I mentioned, and 1 Spreading Seas (which I took from the sideboard).

I was already planning on adding Ceremonious Rejection and Rest in Peace once I buy/find a copy of them. So I agree with that.

Recently I've been looking into more ways to combat the current Modern MTG meta, and agree that Blessed Alliance would be a good card to sideboard in against Death's Shadow decks.

As for Wrath of God, Negate, and Dispel I can see them being useful in certain matchups... But only on rare occasions. MAybe a one of each on the sideboard.

As for Disdainful Stroke, I don't really think there's enough value in it to use it in a deck unless I'm going against affinity or some sort of tron... Not sure how many spaces I can afford on my sideboard, so I probably won't end up using it.

Disdainful Stroke is good in the mirror match, where Jace, the Mind Sculptor and the five drop gideon are often played. It's also good against Gurmag Angler, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Restoration Angel, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet etc.

Can you usually cast the big angel?
