Hey everyone, I recently purchased the new sexy judge promo Avacyn, Angel of Hope for my edh deck and I no longer need the FTV one I was using before. If anyone wants it I am looking for more foils for this edh deck and I can always look through binders. I also have an extra overgrown tomb and a non foil Homeward Path for trade if someone needs either of those. Thanks for reading!

Edit: I also havve a few foil full art bfz swamps im not using

Said on Jace, the mind ......


I think unbanning jace would help modern a bit though eventhough it doesnt need it. Heres why, right now modern is: heres an aggressive deck and what beats them? Combo and midrange decks because combo can race them and midrange can usually hold on well enough to stabalize. But where is control? Control is about 40/60 against combo and aggro and about 50/50 on midrange which isnt a good state thats basically a losing state for them. So what would jace do? Jace would give them a great way to stick it to the midrange players. Jace is not a turn 4 I win it is a turn 4 i hope you have nothing on the board or a way to kill it and then ill probably win. So then the meta would become aggro vs combo where aggro probably wins then midrange vs combo where midrange wins and combo vs control where combo wins and then control vs midrange where control probably wins which is pretty damn healthy imo. Just recently we have had a big resurgence in combo decks and aggro decks which means midrange can be victorious if built well but control cant really beat a decent draw from midrange so they just cant win but having control be good against midrange and ok against aggro and probably bad against combo would lead to a healthier meta than what we have now. That being said modern is fine now and doesnt need to be changed too much but this could make it healthier.

Said on Do you have ......


Eureka is sort of a pet card of mine in EDH. I only have one edh deck and this card has by far given me the most fun games whether it wins me the game or loses me the game everyone just freezes when I play it and it makes me kek. Other than that probably Sylvan Library its probably just my favorite card in magic I just love really powerful green cards that act like blue cards.

I 100% agree to jace and bloodbraid. Although I do want to say that I dont think jace is NECESSARY because it doesnt help what the control decks are bad agaist, combo and super aggressive strategies and I dont know what would fix that. But at the same time sure just unban him and try it out I dont think itll ruin the format. I dont agree with mistep I might actually quit modern at that point because as soon as a kiln fiend deck or infect counters my path to exile or inquisition with 2 life I will immediately scoop and leave.

Said on Yo! Need Abzan ......


Definitely a brutality. The duress effect is really useful and you dont want a hand full of removal when removal just isnt very good. I havent been very happy with fatal push but you do have to play them but 4 is definitely too many in a wide range field.

Said on Yo! Need Abzan ......


Honestly I think your deck looks pretty good. I am on the Grim Flayer version personally but Dark Confidant is the next best thing. The only thing I can recommend is try only 2 Abrupt Decays. That card is just isnt the best right now, at both my scg open and a couple IQs I went to recently it was almost the worst card in my deck. Collective Brutality has been fantastic though for me the only bad matchup being bant eldrazi and it can even do things in that match up so maybe switch one for one. Sigarda, Host of Herons is sweet but I dont think it is needed personally especially if you play confidant. I also would only play Creeping Corrosion if you expect lantern and affinity the card is a little narrow and I think you are fine against them already so if you wanna add one of these maybe board cards then drop that too. Also let me know how finks has been for you as I am legitimately curious!

As far as your maybeboard cards. Ok, definitely not another Abrupt Decay as mentioned before.

Anafenza is fine but I dont think its very needed especially if you play kalitas although it is a bit faster than him. You can probably play her if you expect a lot of dredge and death's shadow but other than that shes usually just kind of a dude.

Back to nature is just not necessary imo Stony Silence and removal especially main deck Maelstrom Pulse is good enough.

A second explosives is kind of iffy, I definitely like one and a second one isnt horrible it really depends on what you play against at your tournaments. The card is great against affinity, lantern, blood moon decks, and has some splash damage against jund, abzan, infect, death's shadow etc. So it might just be a personal preference thing its either great or mediocre depending on the match up.

Flaying Tendrils is kind of meh, maybe against dredge but i think Surgical Extraction is better.

Garruk is cool but basically only in the midrange grind mirrors so meh.

Liliana, the Last Hope has been pretty solid for me. She is basically only good in the grindy mirrors but has some good splash damage on the play against delver decks, death's shadow, and living end which you can take that as you will. I have only played with her a little but she did win me a game once so I have been happy with her.

Lingering Souls is the best card in the deck almost every time, if you play a second brutality try out four but without Grim Flayers I could see only playing 3.

Lost Legacy has been pretty good for me specifically against ad nauseum decks, dredge, and Scapeshift so if you play against them try out 1. I will personally be keeping it in for now.

Obstinate Baloth is just not really needed imo only good against abzan and jund.

Porphyry Nodes also doesnt seem that great when you play 3x Fatal Push and 4x Path to Exile.

Renegade Rallier I actually tested out a while back when he first came out and it is broken on turn 3 after they kill your 2 drop but you need a lot of fetches to make it work so you can try it but I dont think you need it.

Seal of Primordium is just not that needed.

Thalia I have never played with, it seems a little slow but you are welcome to try her out.

Thrun is kind of meh its just basically the same thing as baloth.

Wilt-Leaf Liege definitely is not needed as it doesnt really fit the deck.

Anyway abzan is my main deck in modern and I would love to talk about it any time so if you have any other questions or statements let me know!

If you win a grand prix trial you are awarded 2 byes for the first two rounds of the grand prix associated with your grand prix trial. To attend a pro tour you need to win a preliminary pro tour qualifier which then qualifies you for a regional pro tour qualifier and you need to win that. You can also qualify for a pro tour by reaching enough pro points within a yearly season. You can obtain these by doing well at larger tournaments like grand prixs. Grand prixs are usually larger than the pro tour because anyone with 70 bucks can enter so long as they have not reached maximum capacity for the tournament where as pro tours are invite only essentially by doing well at other tournaments. Pro tours are often times the best of the magic players across the world typically around 300-400 people.

Also these days you need to go 6-3 at a grand prix on day one to make it to day two.

Said on All my friends ......


I just want to point out. I wouldnt get into legacy unless you really want to do well in it because to a lot of people the allure of legacy is the fact that its a really hard format to master with a lot of hard decks to learn and its a challenge to be good at it. But to others it is just fun to play so its important to decide if you are any of these and which one.
