GeminiSpartanX Eschewer of Obfuscation

I love playing Modern, and am always looking for a new rogue deck to play. I've been a pretty avid player since Ravnica/Timespiral, but took a break during the Zendikar Block (worst mistake ever!) I'm about the only person in my meta that enjoys playing modern. Everyone else is either a newer standard player or Legacy snobs who keep themselves interested in magic by playing standard. I'm always looking for a bunch of random cards to make rogue modern decks or upgrade one of my 3 Commander decks, so please check out my trade binder and see if we can help each other out!

Dorotheus- What is the 5 drop creature that Seismic Assault works with?

Removing the Propaganda and Control Magic would make this deck Modern legal, where I think it would have a better chance of winning rather than trying to play it in vintage/legacy. They could be replaced with more mill cards or good creatures like Jace's Phantasm. You could also swap your Wall of Denials with the phantasms and remove white completely from the deck, making it more consistent (5/5 flyers make better blockers than 0/8 walls since most people don't want to lose their creatures to a blocker). The Arrest could be swapped with a Vapor Snag or something to hold off attackers for a turn. I also think 4 Traumatize is too many, since if you play a few mill spells in the earlier turns, the most you'll hit with a 2nd traumatize is 10 or so, which would make it worse than another 5 mana card like Jace, Memory Adept. Going up to 4 Hedron Crabs is also a good idea, perhaps replacing some of the 5-6 mana spells. Anyway, hope some of that helps. Happy milling!

Seismic Assault has more than doubled in price since yesterday. Likely due to content creators posting about the seismic swan deck that won Idaho states. TCG Link

I went 2-1 with my draft deck here, which I thought was the bomb. Only lost out to a nut-drafted esper blink deck with resto-angel and Mistmeadow Witch eternally blinking Dinrova Horror and the white splicer.

I bought only one pack afterwards and it happened to have Blood Moon and foil Scalding Tarn. It made my day ;)

I think the Dynavolt Towers and Wildest Dreams could replace the Hunter's Ambush and Vine Snares in the MD. Maybe 1-2 PW's could come in place of a few Authority of the Consuls too. You know I love me some turbo-fog! The only thing that would make this list better would be if Maze's End was legal in this format lol.

My snapcaster is indeed listed correctly as the MM3 version.

Historically, the best time to buy is 2-3 months after the set releases. That's when I'm planning to buy them at least.

EpicFreddi- I'm glad I avoided opening a box of MM17, tempting though it was to buy at $190 on release day. I went to a draft and opened a pack with a foil Scalding Tarn and a Blood Moon, and the shop was cool enough to let me buy that pack to replace it with another random one for the draft. Even better, the replacement pack had a Snapcaster Mage, so I made out like a bandit :D

However at the end of the night, the guy who opened up the goyf traded it into the store for 5 more packs, and opened absolute garbage, so I was able to see variance at work in the booster lottery.

I think the floor on the mythics might not get as low as we would want. The rares have plenty of room to move in the next few months, but I don't see Lily or goyf going down more than $10 more than what they're at currently.

March 20, 2017 3:25 p.m.

No we played. I felt like I dominated every game that didn't involve me getting mana screwed. It was awesome to tutor up Terminate with Mystical Teachings eot, then untap and go terminate, snap, terminate. My opponent's couldn't handle it most games. :)

mcstang1986- Here's the deck I drafted. I think it was a winner!

I have a MM1 Chalice. I'm not sure I want to trade it, but I'm willing to see what you'll offer for it.

Guinessthemenace- Like epicfreddi said, any cards on the reserve list will likely hold their higher prices as long as Magic remains a popular game. The only way I see reserve list cards dropping in price is if Magic suddenly loses value as a whole due to people quitting, or the format loses absolutely all support from stores everywhere. On the other hand, non-reserve list cards can drop in price due to being reprinted. For example, Wasteland is at an all time low due to Eternal Masters so I'd pick those up right now before the prices rebound. In fact, if there are any playables at all that you want out of the eternal masters set I'd pick them up soon since I doubt the prices are going to go any lower.

I think you meant to type $219.90 if you're referring to the goldfish article. ;)
