I remember when Alpha first came out... I had much of the Revised set. When I'm not spending time with the fam or playing Magic, I play guitar.

I dig Burn, Toolbox, Tempo, 12 Post, Ramp, Abzan, and stomping my opponent with huge beasties.

I'm both instinctive and emotional. I value my own instincts and desires, and either ignore or crush anything that stands in my way; planning and foresight are unnecessary. At best, I'm determined and fierce; at worst, I'm headstrong and infantile.

It does help a lot! I am a bit heavy on 4 drops as I am running 1x Advent of the Wurm -- a card I think is pretty dang good vs eldrazi and goyf and is good even on a board with no anthems, 1x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and 3x Sorin, Solemn Visitor, but I might need to find some room for those Sram's Expertise! Hero of Bladehold is also an interesting include. Will have to consider it! Thanks!

No problem man! The basis of his deck, if I Recall correctly, was:

4x Voice of Resurgence

4x Lingering Souls

3x (maybe 4?) Intangible Virtue

4x Path to Exile

2x (maybe 3-4?) Hero of Bladehold

4x Fatal Push

2-4x Abrupt Decay

2-3x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

3-4x Sram's Expertise

2x (he may have sideboarded them)Raise the Alarm

1-2x Dromoka's Command (again could've been a sideboard card)

Land suite that included on color fetches, shocks, basics, and Gavony Township.

He splashed black mainly for removal and some sideboard answers. I hope this helps!

It was a little off topic for comments on your deck, so I wanted to ask here: what other cards did you see in the Abzan Tokens list? I have been brewing one up myself and would love to know what someone else came up with since its definitely not a common list; but I think it is actually well positioned right now. But anyways, my questions in regard to the deck are:

To your knowledge, what was the green for? Nissa, Voice of Zendikar? Voice of Resurgence? Advent of the Wurm? Abrupt Decay? Maelstrom Pulse?

Did he still use targeted discard?

Did you see any anthem effects outside of Intangible Virtue?

I know it obviously is not your deck, so you only have very second hand knowledge of the deck and its contents. But anything you recall is greatly appreciated! I know I have been toying with Sram's Expertise, and it sounds he like was able to use it to great results. Thanks!

If Jace gets unbanned, then unban Cloudpost, Green Sun's Zenith, and Deathrite Shaman. That would be fair, and it would never happen. Jace is fair in a format (Legacy) where the aforementioned cards are legal and played.

Modern doesn't need a Brainstorm and the other potent abilities that JtMS brings. However, BBE I'm on the fence with, as the Expertise cycle has a similar effect and are seeing play in Modern. That's not to say that R&D does a great job at printing broken cards for Eternal formats, ahem Treasure Cruise, rather I think that they often miss Modern when considering cards to print.

In any case, JtMS is way too broken of a card to be allowed in Modern.

The point of Balustrade Spy is to mill your deck out with Laboratory Maniac on the field, securing a win.

Ball Lightning is awesome and you have to know how to use it, that is, play around removal. When it gets in, it wins games. Seems bad, but it works. I'll side it out if necessary G2-3.

Forked Bolt is absolutely amazing and underrated. It's fantastic against Affinity, Infect, mana dorks, Bob, and I could go on. Two-for-one removal is not something to scoff at, especially for .

I play 3x Boros Charm due to my sideboard choices and maindeck Forked Bolt. It is good, which is why it's 3x of. I go back and forth between Path and Spellbomb, pending the meta.

Kozilek's Return is there FOR pro red creatures. Etched Champion, Kor Firewalker, etc. are often sided in, especially in the mirror. The instant speed is nice, too. I'm also fond of Pyrite Spellbomb for pro red stuff.

Blood Moon is absolutely bonkers in the mirror, hence my very light splash. It makes G2 unwinnable for a lot of decks and is often unexpected out of a RDW/Burn sideboard. One could argue that Molten Rain is better, and in some scenarios it is, but putting the brakes on a deck is worthwhile.

Keldon Megaliths is a one of for the out of cards, at four life, top deck a Bolt scenario. It works as a one of.

I made a competitive, budget list for you:



Total cost is $85.00! I started back around Unlimited/Revised playing Red Deck Wins, and when I came back to MTG after a long hiatus, I built a budget Legacy RDW deck and upgraded it over time, also picking up the Modern pieces. I have an affinity for RDW/Burn and like to see players succeed with it.

This is something you can slowly upgrade over time, but definitely get the core Burn spells first. You want to maximize damage for the least amount of mana possible, which is why you see so many spells at that deal 3 damage. Goblin Guide and Eidolon of the Great Revel take RDW to the next level and should be there eventually. The MM17 reprint of GG should help you pick up a set at some point.

Grim Lavamancer is great as a 2x of either main or side and is worth picking up.

Lightning Bolt!!! Rift Bolt, Lava Spike, Keldon Marauders, Monastery Swiftspear, Spark Elemental, Skullcrack, Forked Bolt, and Flames of the Blood Hand are all relatively cheap and effective. You could easily cut two Mountains, as 20 is enough.

Yeah, she's pretty good! I'm thinking she may be decent against Tron variants as well, but she'll eat removal like a boss. She's too slow for Affinity, I think, but good against other Aggro decks. Having First Strike helps immensely!

Shucks! We could've had 12! One guy had a bye. No worries though.

I went 3-1 and came in fourth place! That was nice, as this was my first ever run in a tourney with this deck. I've playtested the crap out of it, though.

I hastily posted an update detailing matches and provided some highlights on my deck, should you wish to scope it out!

I was going back and forth about Creeping Corrosion... it definitely blows out Affinity, Lantern, and Tezzerator. Back to Nature is something I totally forgot about, thanks!

I really dig Flaying Tendrils, and again, forgot it existed lol. Thanks gents!

I'm on Abzan midrange and could use a few experienced peeps to take a gander at my list. I don't have Grim Flayer, at the moment FYI... Anyway, I think my sideboard may need tweaking? I have a lot of cards on my maybe board, mostly for the sideboard, but maybe main?

Let me know whatchoo think!

The best way to stop Tron variants is to keep them off of Tron. So blow up their Tron pieces with Fulminator Mage, Ghost Quarter, Boom/Bust, then Surgical Extraction their Tron piece. You'd have to splash for Boom/Bust, though. It plays well with the Expertise, too.

March 13, 2017 12:59 p.m.

What do you sideboard in for Tron variants? It seems like they'd give you a hard time.
