one of the problems i have seen with burn is that as an archetype, it is almost too easily shut down. Stuff like Thragtusk and Leyline of Sanctity are simply brutal against that one entire archetype (pure burn that is). Don't even mention the new Oketras Last Mercy (3 mana resets your life total)
That being said, burn is not a bad archetype. IMHO, its one of the more fragile ones, as it can straight up lose if the opponent starts with a certain card in hand, but it keep variety in the format.

I like it. A tad cliche, mono blue control/delver/thing, but I like it!

LeaPlath to be completely honest, cremate was something of a last thought. After looking through the modern metagame, I found that snapcaster was one of the most commonly used cards in the format, and that it is a relatively safe bet to guess that anyone running blue is running one or two. At first, I thought something along the lines of "oh, scooze should take care of it"... And I wasn't wrong... They just waited until they could remove scooze, and then would play snapcaster. I found that in running cremate as a two of, it allows me to A. Surprise make snapcasters etb useless, B. Cripple goyf in certain situations (cough cough Tarfire), and C. Allowed me to dodge Surgical Extraction effects. It also coincided with an extra slot I couldn't think of what to fill with. Admittedly, I do sideboard it out immediately in certain matchups (tron, scapeshift, etc)
I appreciate the thought though!

Hello fellow brewers!
I have been hearing from both my LGS and parts of the mtg community that many people are getting frustrated with the perceived 'use one of these top decks or you don't have a chance' metagame in modern. This made me think about people brewing, and I have come to the conclusion that the best way to fix the problem is to compile a list of home-brews, made by the people of tappedout, that potential tourney players might find an idea to build off of.
Now, as for the requirements. I have no problem with decks that use some of the staple cards in the format, ie goyf, ravager, etc, but I want these decks to be unique decks that have been developed without basing it off of tournament winning decks. (affinity, scapeshift, looking at you).
Of course , being the founder of this thread, I feel I must submit a deck of my own... and here it is:

unfortunately this deck dies against a graveyard wipe. I prescribe counterspells

in my experience its best to have a deck that goes for combo game two, so it doesn't get seen coming
