How is it working for you mate?

Tectonic Edge is too weak imho, the opponent shouldn't go to that much lands.

Heroic Intervention and Vines of Vastwood go both around Path to Exile because of the hexproof. Heroic Intervention is also better against sweepers, except Terminus.

Izzet drakes was, except for a few moments, boring to watch, way too many cantrips. I really liked the mono white (yeah I refuse to call it red-white) mirrors. Especially LSVs Semifinal. Golgari matches were also nice to watch.

With a full hand LSV would have made it. Pretty sure about that. Elenbogens hand wasn't that great and LSVs deck was better tuned for the mirror. Really heartbreaking moment. :-(

€: Pretty interesting. Even in german it is Standard, it just sounds like Standart. :-)

November 11, 2018 5:27 p.m.

Sorry mate, in german it is Standart, not standard. :-)

What a freaking brutal game five in the Pro Tour Final. The mull to four was heartbreaking, poor LSV.

BTT: At least the pro tour gave a clear no to the Teferi ban question. As I told to someone else before the weekend. Settle the Wreckage is really underplayed.

November 11, 2018 4:38 p.m.

The big difference between standart and eternal, in standart you have the time to durdle around a bit, but in eternal you need your mana on the spot.

November 11, 2018 2:47 p.m.

If the reward to go 4C/5C should be big enough, then shock / check should be enough to support that imho.

November 11, 2018 7:39 a.m.

Why choose between Esper and Jeskai? With the next expansion I'll see 4C/5C color. There shouldn't be a problem to build these manabases with all the shock- and checklands available.

November 11, 2018 3:39 a.m.

Question for now: Will Teferi, Hero of Dominaria win Pro Tour: Guilds of Ravnica?

My guess is no.

November 10, 2018 2:55 p.m.

I don't see that Teferi will ever be banned in modern. Modern right now has the tools and inherently different decks so that imho no deck can't truly opress the format.

You can't tune control to have a good game against dredge, tron, burn, midrange, storm, etc. at the same time. Modern is ah cycling format. The best deck this week can fall behind in a couple of weeks and be the best deck again a couple more weeks.

Some suggestions for you mate:

Ruthless Ripper is a "one mana kill spell" which gives you devotion and a bit of reach.

Graveyard Marshal can give you some graveyard recycling.

Gatekeeper of Malakir is an easy two for one against creature decks. Especially good against boggles.

Bloodghast could be used as a steady stream of attackers.

Plague Mare was always a good one of sideboard card for me.

And one funny thing: Torment of Hailfire is really awesome with Nykthos Mana. With two Urborg I would play three Nykthos.

Day1 at the pro tour saw 8 % UWx Control and about 4 % Jeskai Midrange (don't know if Teferi is in there too).

Hey mate, I have a really competitive take on the landfall mechanic. Have a look at this:

A slow azorius control build could imo be held in check with a nice izzet build with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Banefire. There's only the question, how would this build stand against the rest of the meta.

I'm really not that big of a standart fan, but the format is pretty nice since Guilds of Ravnica. I'm really curious who will win this weekend. Maybe after these two days we will already have more knowledge and data to discus the Teferi question.

One problem I see, especially in tournament magic, is, that the "real pros" tend to gravitate towards control decks.

Spellheart Chimera has one big disadvantage, it is not Lightning Bolt proof.

+1 alone for the name. The half year pause sucks so hard.

In my opinion, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, while he surely is a great planeswalker, or card in general, should not be banned for now. UWx control is not a dominant force in the metagame right now.

But I can see only two futures with the upcoming set:

  • There are no good cards in the azorius guild. Anything could be a serious problem.

  • Teferi, Hero of Dominaria will rule the format.

A control deck as the best deck wouldn´t even be a problem, but I really hated the "pure" controldeck, which only wincon was to shuffle Teferi back into the deck and mill the opponent with it. A control deck should always have a real wincon. It´s ok to win on turn 20, but not on turn 50 via decking. Especially in standart which should attract new players to the game. This has nothing to do with a fun game.

My forecast: Teferi, Hero of Dominaria will be banned after the next expansion. Even if Wizards hates to ban control cards.
