I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

I play Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (tap out) and target your Frost Titan

Me: ok, its countered unless you pay 2.

THIS IS THE CARD DESIGNED BY squire1 FOR BEING THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE PLAYER OF THE MONTH FOR MAY. THANK YOU EVERYBODY!

Not unless I were trading for a significant portion of the deck. It's a Foil piece for my Foil EDH.

It's not an expedition, it's an RTR. I can't get the sets to place right on my lands

Hey. That price is good for me but I'm gonna have to wait till later this month or early June to buy them as I had some unexpected car repairs come up and it ate my magic budget. But I am definitely wanting to get them if you done mind holding them for me.

For the masterpiece, TCG mid is $78, low is $63, so I'd probably around $55-60. If I can find some way to turn it into a Doubling Season, I'd be happy. And it was such a rush to pull, cause I've opened at least one box of every set since BFZ and haven't pulled anything, and this was out of a random single pack from GameStop, haha.

Im loving the Street Wraith addition! An excellent 0 mana draw, thats probably something I will make find its way into my build as well!

A few questions though

Is there justification for the 4xGhost Quarter? I know tron is a pain, but does it cause a lack of consistency while putting your opponent ahead? Maybe Tectonic Edge is better(still questioning the colorless mana though)? Is Spreading Seas tron hate too?

Would the deck benefit from some fetch lands? Reason being 1)thins the deck and 2) resets the top if you are in a crunch and just need to blind hope it

How good is Confirm Suspicions in your testing? Is it worth the 5 mana to get the clues?

I still vote on a straight cut of Jace, Architect of Thought in favor of maybe Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or something better for the synergy of the deck

Condemn over Path to Exile is a fine argument in my book, path has more utility but Condemn works in a aggro heavy meta just as well

All in all though I like it. I need to sit down at some point and rework mine a little as Im also tinkering with Gifts Ungiven and Gideon of the Trials+Pact of Negation decks (any pact really) so all three are running though my mind

Hmmm, oh well, checks and balances I guess lol. I guess maybe it could side to a more traditional looking control deck but even then that may not be the best route

Thanks for the input so far guys. It seems like the rites package is a good way to start, but it seems like most strategies need the graveyard. Are there any solid non-graveyard based things to tutor up to try and combat the sided in hate?

Hey all!

So Im trying to get into Gifts Ungiven for modern and am wondering what the best approach for the deck is. Would it be a linear approach like Gifts Unburial Rites, or is it better to sac consistency for more interplay such as using a gifts package alongside Thopter/sword, Witness/Command, Crucible/Edge? I have zero experience with the deck so I am unsure what the best approach is, thanks for the input!

Ah gotcha, well I have a couple burn pieces and would still be interested in it if you are willing to trade it?
