Thanks! Also, since it came up in a different conversation, you could invest in the Ponza/"Gruul Utopia" shell. It's been extremely consistent for the last 4-5 years, always having a decent build. This is one you could cut the Wrenn and Six from, invest some trades or extra $ in the manabase, and then have a deck shell that you can always update. The core of the deck is the manabase, Arbor Elf, Lightning Bolt, and some kind of land hate e.g. Pillage, Stone Rain, Magus of the Moon, or Blood Moon. There's a cool Obosh version going around now, too, to give you an idea of how flexible that base ends up being.

Haha DarkStarStorm. Nice segue.
Well aside from Amulet Titan decks, I'm liking the metagame with regards to Jund's position. Even still, with the semi-recent banning of Once Upon a Time the deck is more in line with lists prior to Throne of Eldraine. Which even though it is a bad match-up, it's beatable G1 with some luck and G2 after SB with Grafdigger's Cage, Fulminator Mage, and Assassin's Trophy.
Everything is a wash though if they get Primeval Titan out early. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove can make that happen if not dealt with. It used to be that leaving in Lightning Bolt was preferred G2 but Dryad of the Ilysian Grove makes Fatal Push slightly better.
It's definitely a bad match-up and I could see going to 3 or even 4 Assassin's Trophy to combat it. Pillage could take the place of Ancient Grudge as a flexible card in addition to Fulminator Mage since i can also hit Amulet of Vigor if they leave it in.
I'm confidant in the other match-ups for now. Burn is always slightly less than 50/50 but that's pretty much the case with almost every Modern deck against Burn.

Since Thassa is in there, it looks like there can be piracy-related creatures even if they're not specifically pirates. So Treasure Nabber is a nice way to use other people's mana rocks without running any yourself. And since Thassa is in there, blinking a thief like Agent of Treachery each turn is piracy, right? Kukemssa Pirates also lets you steal their mana rocks with less questionable flavor.
Cut / Ribbons (cut to ribbons) is a pirate-y saying, right?
Deck's pretty blue, so Scent of Brine might be useful interaction.
Does Killing Wave count? Devastation Tide wipes the board. Drown in Sorrow/Golden Demise are...bad..boardwipes for you, but maybe something? Also Powder Keg, Doom Cannon, and Coral Net are bad removal.
Old Man of the Sea is also...weird...

First off welcome back to modern, it's been a while I see and yeah... things haven't been too kind to Skred Red, first off I will say that the current lists are likely temur now, here is an example:
That's just to give you an idea of where snow as an archetype has gone nowadays but let's talk about classic skred red. Basically you want to get yourself 4 Arcum's Astrolabe right away, the card quite frankly is broken, it replaces itself and ups your skred snow count right away. Here is a list from MTUgin that I am a fan of:
That list can use a lot of work, for example I think Blast Zone is likely just better than the ratchet bomb, and another little Chandra could be played, but it should give you something to work from. Skred right now can be a little weird, Primeval Titan decks are very good right now meaning being the Blood Moon deck isn't a bad place to be, but you really do lack any meaningful sideboard cards. I'd probably cut the SSG's for Damping Sphere which is also good against titan and storm. If your meta turns out to be a ton of titan you should be decently positioned otherwise one of skred's biggest problems in this day and age is what is becoming the end all and be all of the modern format and that is game actions per turn. Skred has a very low count on this and thus is inherently behind decks like amulet or urza which are doing many things a turn. Now, again Blood Moon can just win games but it is a concern. The temur build solves this problem some but is a very different deck.
As for having to buy new cards, its a reality all us modern players have had to face, 2019 produced a LOT of staple cards: Wrenn and Six, Teferi, Time Raveler, Urza, Lord High Artificer, Arcum's Astrolabe, and Oko, Thief of Crowns to name a few. In a way Skred has a lot less than most decks so there is that to look forward to I guess. My advice to you though is just cast moon, you can update as you go, moon will steal you games while you do. If I were you I would prioritise the Chandra's and Seasoned Pyromancer both seem good here. Let me know what your meta looks like I'd be happy to help you out with a sideboard!

This list is fucking amazing! I'm in love V Changes I suggest are 1 or even 2 more copies of Shatter the sky as it's a wrath that seems custom-made to be played alongside the amonkhet Gods, you can probably afford to sideboard in the deafening clarion and/or the 3rd copy of porphyry nodes (I think 2 are enough) and I really think you should get a Pillage somewhere in the main. I would cut a giant for a pillage or maybe even a Wrenn and Tix. Good luck!

great deck. why not use Stone Rain ? it beats Pillage in casting cost every time, and lends to an easier T2 land destruction. Overall, I really enjoyed this deck, and am a huge fan of Ponza builds in general. Great work. +1

Welcome back to Magic, and especially back to Ponza!
A few thoughts:
- Pillage is legal now, and is a solid swap for Stone Rain (if you don't mind the slightly more difficult cost ... 1RR on T2 is ~4% less likely that 2R), especially considering all the Artifact decks in the competitive meta now.
- Speaking of Artifact decks, I would recommend at least 3x Ancient Grudge and/or Abrade in the side (in addition to Pillage in the main). Meta-call of course, but there seem to be MANY more targets now. I'd personally skimp on Grafdigger's Cage to make room. Dredge and Neoform are still threats, but nowhere near as dominant in most metas.
- Oko, Thief of Crowns is a real problem in many metas, and the deck may need some ways to deal with it. Veil of Summer , Beast Within , and more Hasty Creatures are all good options.
You may want to post the deck for comments on r/PonzaMTG, over on Reddit. We're a friendly community (IMO, anyways) , and always happy to comment on decks!
Good luck (and good skill) with the deck!
