It Was, And Always Will Be...

Modern Artifact Mono-Blue Tron



DOOM who pulls the strings.

enter image description here

Tron is a toolbox archetype, set to give you basically all the answers you need, when you need them. Fundamentally different than the X variants, which tend to focus on getting Tron assembled as fast as possible, this takes its time, and grinds out the opponent.

Always playing one step ahead, we eventually unleash a hardlock via Mindslaver and and Academy Ruins with Tron assembled. This will continually take control of your opponent's next turn.

gives us access to Gifts Ungiven which furthers our lines of play, and provides us with a means to get exactly what we want.

If we're in need of countermagic, the pile would be: Condescend, Remand, Repeal, Snapcaster Mage.

If we're trying to get the combo: Mindslaver, Expedition Map, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Buried Ruin.

Against a heavy midrange board: Oblivion Stone, AEtherspouts, Snapcaster Mage, Cyclonic Rift.

If you really need the Tron Lands, Crucible of Worlds, Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine and Expedition Map make for an aggressive land pile.

And finally if you want a guaranteed hardlock: Crucible of Worlds, Mindslaver, Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin.

It's all in how you adapt with any given opposition.

The Sideboard tech focuses on answering as many threats as we can anticipate: Spatial Contortion - creature removal

Spreading Seas - vs Burn, Mirror matches, Valakut, etc.

Chalice of the Void - any low-to-the-ground decks.

All Is Dust - mass board wipe

Dismember - Eldrazi Tron, Death's Shadow.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation - protects our artifacts and we can basically ensure the draw.

Walking Ballista - backup Ballistas for aggro matchups.

Field of Ruin - Land Destruction.
