I also took out the esper land of swamp, mountain, and plains. I thought the swamp was a forest not a swamp. my mistake. nice catch

Hey! I made the Glorious Dinos deck. I talked to my brothers about them and I misunderstood how the contested cliffs worked, so I'm taking those out for sure, and the enchantments such as burgeoning are a great idea to be taken out. Thanks so much for the input! It is great valued! (Its the first deck I am actually building)

Your land base confuses me. Why do you have an Esper land? Additionally, Burgeoning, Wild Growth and Contested Cliffs are not modern legal (never printed in modern sets). After cutting those you should have four spaces cleared

TBH Jeskai is a really bad color combo for storm.
I would say grixis, but you already expressed your disdain. Maybe Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder?

I recently decided to start bringing tokens along with me to FNM for the sake of convenience (not to mention it's prettier than a dice), but realized given my relatively small collection of tokens, I am probably missing some of the important ones.
So far I have the Unstable: Zombie, Spirit, Thopter, VoR elemental, Young Pyromancer Elemental, Goblin, angel and clue.
In addition to these, I also have the Poison counter token, Wurmcoil Engine wurms, the Master of Waves elemental, and my lucky token, the SCG Hippo Token. Given this list, can anyone think of tokens I missed that have a decent chance come up at modern FNM?

Personally, when it comes to nekusar, I have found infect isn't the way to go. What really works for me is stuff that prevents your opponents from playing stuff at instant speed combined with Nekusar, the Mindrazer enchanted with Helm of the Ghastlord, and enough draw engines to ensure you draw into a combo otherwise.

If the opponent has a killspell in hand they 1 for 1 you
If they don't they just take four. Guide doesn't give them that option, making it better.
ChannelFireball wrote an article on this called PV's rule. Would link it but it's not working for me right now

Is there any chance you can convince your friend to start playing a "fair" format such as frontier? Not even using tournament strategies, just brewing
To answer your question though, it is sad to lose the person who got you into the game. If you cannot convince them to stay, the best thing you can do is ensure the rest of the playgroup enjoys it. In my pod, we have certain cards "banned" in various formats, either because of hellish interactions (Eye of the Storm), being fundamentally broken (Paradox Engine) or just straight up un fun (Possessed Portal). Generally speaking, this should encompass not a specific decks main card, but cards that are simply too powerful for your playgroups meta (Sudden Spoiling).
In any case, try and convince your friend to hit up an LGS and get into a format. While it can be costly, it becomes very fun, although doing well with a homebrew requires an ungodly amount of R&D and playtesting.
Hope this helps

So a friend of mine has recently become disillusioned with Modern, as it is apparently impossible to do well in a tournament setting with a homebrew (ignoring my modern deck which consistently goes 3-1 at FNM).
Being a brewer myself, I have found that one of the best ways to make a new deck is by looking through a set (preferably an old one) and finding cards which have potential in any format. While these decks may be fun to play (Mizzium Transreliquat) they are rarely competitively viable, bringing me to my point.
Are there any cards anyone would suggest that while powerful/flexible enough to build a reasonably competitive deck, is an unused card in modern in general so as to help my friend rekindle his faith in modern?
If it helps, my friend plays an infect list in modern and a Neheb, the Worthy EDH deck.

Netdecking refers to taking a winning decklist found online (Gifts storm, deaths shadow, 5C humans) and building that deck straight from someone else's list. Slivers isn't really a tournament seen deck (at least in the Top 8 level)

I'm referencing using his ability to use the other side of gateway/using it for untap stuff. Not entirely sure of how zone changes work with flip cards and the properties they have
January 8, 2018 6:21 p.m.
I'm not entirely sure of what to make of Blood Sun. While I see the point you are trying to make, I feel it is more of a way for them to print a Blood Moon type card for modern that is affordable to newer players.
While it is entirely possible they want to cycle out 8th edition, the effect doing so would have on modern would screw up the next couple of Gp's, which would make people lose faith in moderns stability. Given the lack of faith in standard right now, I doubt they would do that

I would go mono green eldrazi stomps, with Descendants' Path, Conduit of Ruin and Eldrazi Temple. Other than that I don't know. There is quite a bit of ramp in eldrazi, along with some colorless ways to cheat them out (Quicksilver Amulet)
Hope this helped

Additionally, I'm noticing a lack of Stony Silence in SB. Any particular reason I'm not seeing?

Zacama could be used as a food chain commander, immediately netting large amounts of mana (especially with Panharmonicon)
Any thoughts about the Azor land?

So turns out all you have to do is instead of hitting save hit "save and continue editing"

That is my sideboard strategy against knightfall. Tapped out is being annoying and isn't letting me change deck description, so I can't show that yet
January 3, 2018 11:15 a.m.
Yeah I'm having this problem too. It seems the problem is with cards linked in the description. I have taken a chunk of the description for one of my decks, and copy pasted it in and manupilated it to see what was causing the problems. Once something in the card bracket was erased, everything else worked fine
