Well fair point then. But if you say something like bolt is a bad card that you have to expect a backlash
I think jeskai is indeed better becausr its more flexible and faster than esper. But this is not really th
Bolt is defenitely not a bad removal spell and i find it pretty hard to compare bolt path and push since all have their advantages and disadvantages.

there are 4 paths in th deck so what are you even arguimng for at this point?
Removing a birds of paradise or a goblin guide can be vital for a deck like this and I can guarantee you that you dont want to path a bird.
yeah bolt is bad against tron and delv creatures and even a large tarmogoyf but that doesnt make it a bad removal spell because there are like 5 decks playing these cards.
May 23, 2018 4:11 p.m.
thats just complete bullshit
it can remove about 80% of relevant creatures in the format thats defenitely enough to make it a good removal spell

mtg goldfish lists UWR with 4,7 and UW with 1,5% meta share. But that doesnt really matter the numbers are not relibale and thats not the point

lightning bolt is pretty good against alot of decks and not that good against others, but its flexible and helps this deck to wins games.
It doesnt make sence to critisize biolt in a jeskai list becauae it will always be a 4 of. one luitnant dosent get most of humans creatures out of bolt range so thats reall not a problem
HillyerGames the deck is called jeskai dontrol and is not a burn deck. its pretty well established an the most popular control deck in modern

Seems like a pretty solid list overall.
3 logic knot is to many i think you should propably cut one.
Gideon Jura is a pretty solid win con but gideon of the trials is pretty strong too maybe you want one of each
Search for Azcanta is also pretty good and could be at least a two off in your deck
May 22, 2018 6:54 p.m.
defenitely a cool idea but as was said before breach would just be better than this
May 20, 2018 5:50 p.m.
mm ok I see.
Well you have a pretty good draw package so the low density of threats might be ok. The one offs are all fine I guess.
May 20, 2018 5:49 p.m.
kalitas and tasigur are pretty awesome threats
i dont know if glorybound is correct because its pretty slow without vigiglence
May 20, 2018 1:51 p.m.
spell snare is an amazing spell, but not for your deck, spell pierce would be amazin because it can protect your threats for only one mana. $ spreading seas isnt over doing in the slightest. Maybe you could cut a mana leak and a painful thruth
May 20, 2018 4:35 a.m.
i dont think you hsould mix boardclears and token spells to be honest thats just not a very good synnergy... you should use planeswalkers as a wincon if you are planing to play boardclears.
timely reenforcements is a pretty good sideboard card in general
May 20, 2018 4:33 a.m.
Espwr charm seems not i.pactful enough to me. Its pretty flexi le but you are not necessarily interested in any of those effects.
There is also no real need for spell snare. Its more a card for control decks tbat need answers to problematic spells like tarmogoyf.
Id defenitely go up to 4 spreading seas. Which ia a pretty good card in general.
Id cut the field of ruins. They are not really sideboard cards but also dont fit in your maindeck. Besides that you already have a lot of tron hate for what they are usually used.
Dispell or some boardclears would fit very well in your sideboard
May 19, 2018 5:35 p.m.
Well sneak attack is not even modern legal if you do t want to cheat her into play youll have to ramp i suppose.
May 17, 2018 5:19 a.m.
Dynarche is a win more card. Its only good if you already have a lot of goblins so id cut them.
Your sideboard is not very good at all. Shatterstorm is too slow against most artifact decks. Mogg war marshall is a maindeck and no sideboard card. And the token spells defenitely do not belong there.
May 16, 2018 6:03 a.m.
you should really streamline your creatures a bit Deranged Whelp for example does virtually nothing for your deck. Reckless Bushwhacker only makes sence in a creature build an you are playing a creature spell deck. Conduit of Storms Flip is too expensive and doesnt do enough for your deck.
Your sideboard is also pretty bad Rift Bolt can be a maindeck card but its not a sideboard card at all.
Why do you have Borrowed Hostility and Kari Zev in your sideboars at all? against which decks would you want t bring them in?
May 14, 2018 8:22 a.m.
Im reffering to berryjons defwnition of mana curve not to yours
I should have made than clear in my first postI wasnt reffering to you at all.
May 13, 2018 6:31 p.m.
Yeah of course and thatd exactly what i said when I was talking about when I said that you should keep the amounts of lands in Mind when you look at your mana curve.
But that doesnt make it part of the mana curve. Its a separate piece of data and you should combine them when you want to build a deck but they are not the same thing. This defenition simply doesnt make sence. Thats all i was talking about.
May 13, 2018 2:27 p.m.
I disklike yozr defenition of mana curve to be honest. Sure the amount of mana you axpect to have on a certain trun should be considered when you are looking at your curve. the amount of lands (or other mana sources) should be chsose accordingly to your mana curve. But the mana curve is certainly not the confluence of both. Its the curve that assings the number of spells for any given cmc to that cmc.

well i personally dont see hwo this deck can be good against burn but Control in general struggles when there are a lot of different linear uninteractive decks in the format.
You have a lot of Sb card that are extremely painfull for Burn (Leyline and reenforcements and even dispel is pretty good against burn) against affinity only stony and agains thollow one only RIP and even that doesnt stop hollow one completely(timely is ok against both but not back bracking). So when you are saying you have a good MU against burn thats pretty likely because of your SB and you should dedicate more slots to the other decks if you want to have a better game against them.
Against humans, affinity and hollow one you need efficient spotremoval and there is not really anything besides path in those colors.
I dont really see the purpose of Porphyry Nodes in you SB to be honest. maybe you coult cut them for an additional RIp and Stony for example
