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!) My goal in magic is to eventually have a set of every Modern competitive staple card, so please check out my trade binder and see if we can help each other out!

All the cool kids work to eradicate obfuscation.

It's my least favourite part of the game, and something I NEVER put my Opponent through.

So here's the question: there's a local modern event this Saturday where the top 4 split a box of Iconic Masters, 2 boxes for top 8 if there are 20+ players. Should I stick with what I've been playing or try out the Eldritch version more like Josh's list? Expected meta is mostly Shadow, burn/zoo, maybe an affinity but mostly random things.

Oh I am. I've made a few minor changes to Josh's list and am trying them out here: Ponza Evolution Testing

I like the 3rd finks in the main over his wood elves idea, then moving a few things around in the SB.

Double post, oops.

I don't know, Ponza had been letting me down lately. Seems like I can't get better than 50/50 against thoughtseize/Lily decks. The versions with both shadow and goyf are proving difficult.

Considering that there's a Modern Pro Tour less than 2 months away, I'm surprised how dead this forum has become. If you were going to attend the pro tour in Feb., what do you think the meta would look like and which deck would you play?

Looks like a nice deck! I like your use of Remember the Fallen, and I'll see if I can't make space for it in my artifact voltron build.

Thanks austinbromine97! Hopefully I'll do well enough to make day 2!

Nightwing690- Swagtusk is a good card, but the more I play this deck, the more I realize that keeping the curve down is really important. Against burn, I want faster sources of lifegain so I can get it down while they're still playing out creatures before they start holding up skullcrack. Against attrition decks, I like having Baloth and Colossus as trump cards. Finks made it in there as a smaller thrag really. Thrag is a great card though, and I don't fault anyone for using it.

Said on Modern Delver Mill...

#10

In all honesty, I'd cut the 3 Delvers for 3 Fraying Sanity. This is especially good since your Tome Scours will mill for 10 and make them better late-game plays. I'd also consider swapping Ghost Quarters for Field of Ruins, since field forces a search from your opponent so you can cast Archive Trap for free, whereas Quarter is a 'may' ability that puts you down a land. Also, I'd run the Mesmeric Orbs in the MD if you want to run them at all. Maybe shaving on a Crypt Incursion and some scours, Phantasms, or Mind Funerals. Orbs are great with Fraying Sanity since it allows you to play a mill card on turn 2 while saving the other 2 cmc spells for after a Sanity on turn 3. Swapping out the Misty Rainforest for an Oboro, Palace in the Clouds would be good since you're running Crabs. I love it as a 1-of in my deck. Set Adrift is a good SB card that gets rid of anything by putting it on top of your opponent's deck then milling it away with another spell. Hope some of that helps! Happy Milling!

Said on Heroic Modern Deck...

#11

Welcome to the modern format! I also played WU Heroic in standard, and tried to make the most competitive modern heroic deck I could a few years ago. If you'd like to take a look at it for any ideas, you're certainly welcome to do so! It's more of a white green deck that splashes blue, but it's capable of some fast wins if the mana works out for you - Bant Heroic

Hopefully it might give you a few ideas to help improve your deck. I found the rebound spells to be particularly helpful since they target twice.

Thanks Naksu! I'll definitely be making some changes, but I think it has a shot if I can correctly predict the meta.

Thanks hman4398!

Pithing Needle really helps against one of your tougher matchups: Tron. Needle naming Karn, Ugin, or Liliana (against the black decks) helps get you to the late game and gives you something to play on turn 1 when Nodes aren't doing much. It's been a while since I last played prison, but I think I'll whip it out and give it another shot in this storm-heavy meta.
