Went 2-1 first time playing the deck.

2-0 v Amulet Titan

2-0 v Storm

1-2 v Titanshift

The deck felt good overall. The only thing that stood out as being particularly bad was Electrolyze. It's time as a good card in Modern seems to be at an end. It feels ...

So, I have had a chance to continue to play Zur. I love this deck more each time. The board states continue to be nonsense and really oppressive.

It's actually getting a little hard for my playgroup, so I will be bringing back Yuriko at some point.

So, I noticed, after a few plays that, while I absolutely LOVE this deck, there are things about it that seem unnecessary and some that need tweaking in general.

First, I removed as many taplands as I can. I still have to go through the cards and mark which lands ...

Basically you start the game of simple with your hand with nice mana in it and maybe like a Tormenting Voice or a Read the Bones. But if your super lucky you will start the game with one of your win condition combos with is Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia ...

Decided to finally get around to writing about the deck before I played another FNM.

Finished 2-0-1 again and decided to make a few sideboard changes.

These changes were as follows:

-1 End Hostilities because I never found I was boarding them in.

-1 Banishing Light because I recently upped ...

Even without only taking wins, I was still happy with the night with an overall 2-0-1.

Round 1


Opponent: Jeskai Burn

Game 1: I couldn't find any good threats while he burned me down.

Game 2: I got plenty of life lands and my Rakshasa's Secrets to ...

Finally got the time to do a small little write up. It won't be too long as none of the games were that interesting and I took all 3 rounds without dropping a single game.

Game 1: Picked 'em apart with Thoughtseize and removal, leading to Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker getting in for 4 several turns in a row.

Game 2: Same thing as game 1.

At FNM the round I lost was in large part to Drown in Sorrow. That and Anger of the Gods can cause some large issues, so I need to make sure I can recover. I've ordered 2x Hordeling Outburst and 4x Satyr Hoplite to try. The goblins are for the ...

Last FNM went alright, still getting used to this deck, but im done trying weird things and just making it more strait forward. Cards like Dictate of Kruphix and Haunted Plate Mail Were fun and sometimes got me some wins, but they are inconsistent so they got da boot.

Did fairly well with a 2-1 finish at FNM. I was pretty happy with the performance of the deck again, barely battling through a Jeskai Tempo deck and barely losing to a 1 for 1 control style Mardu deck. The deck was a fairly good matchup against mine, as it ...

FNM 11/7/14

Went to FNM again and went 3-0, leaving me with an all time sanctioned record with this deck of 8-1. The first two rounds weren't really eventful and worth describing as they were quick 2-0s, but round three was pretty fun.

Opponent: Mardu Aggro

Game 1: He was ...
