  1. I think we can all agree that reprinting format staples is a good thing. It brings prices down and makes the formats more accessible. The tricky part is not over printing these cards to drive the prices way down that they lose all value. (see the comic book industry in the 90's) Recently TCC made a video making a case for reprinting Modern staples in Standard to bring card prices down. The problem with this is if they reprint powerful Modern and/or Legacy staples in Standard it will warp the format. He mentions Thoughtseize and didn't think it was too powerful for Standard. I don't agree with this. If powerful reprints make it into Standard it will hurt more than help, and Standard is the format where Wizards makes their money from sealed products. Reprint more cards in supplemental products like Conspiracy and Commander. I would love to see them increase the print run of Master sets and maybe bring down the price per pack but since we all go out and gobble up $10 per pack sets they aren't going to ruin a good thing. So what are your thoughts? Can or should Modern and Legacy staples be reprinted in Standard sets?

    Good evening my fellow Planeswalkers! It's your friendly neighbourhood GenericBadMagic here to canvas for opinion/share an idea! So I'm travelling to Birmingham, UK in August for a modern GP and will most likely be borrowing a deck for the event. However I have been toying with an idea for quite some time that, while never being tier 1, could be a whole heap of fun to play with. The decklist has never been completed and it's colours have changed, but the only constant has been the interaction between Underworld Dreams and Teferi's Puzzlebox. I want to have as many ways of forcing the opponent to draw as possible so Grixis control seems to be the established path. However rather than controlling I'd much rather focus on dropping creatures like Nekusaar, the Mindrazer and Fate Unraveller to try and force the issue. Hence the oh-so-affectionate title "Draw-Blood". To me it seems to be an underrepresented strategy which could catch people off guard and I'd love to hear your views and possible suggestions! Kind Regards, Tosh (from GenericBadMagic)
  3. Now that we've had a little time after MM17, do you feel as though the format is in a better place now or did the set not help the format?

    I have been playing in MTGO constructed open play with an Elves decklist inspired by ones I found on tappedout. I had a strange random itch to play with Nissa Revane so she is definitely a core part of the deck. With that being said, she likely bogs down the deck so while not the most optimized, constantly churning out Nissa's Chosen can end up being powerful - not to mention if lucky enough to ult. game over with Shaman of the Pack. Have any of you guys tried an Elves-based Modern deck and if so, how much success did you have with it? Here is the decklist I've been toying with. I'd love a playset of CoCo but wanted to hold off based on its current cost. Suggestions are welcome of course, especially sideboard as it is likely missing key pieces I should have that I'm not aware of. Main: 4x Blooming Marsh 2x Ghost Quarter 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx 1x Swamp 11x Forst 4x Elvish Mystic 4x Llanowar Elves 3x Elvish Visionary 4x Nissa's Chosen 4x Abrupt Decay 2x Imperious Perfect 4x Elvish Archdruid 2x Elvish Champion 3x Ezuri, Renegade Leader 3x Shaman of the Pack 2x Elvish Piper 2x Nissa Revane 1x Craterhoof Behemoth 2x Chord of Calling Side: 2x Nature's Claim 1x Gaea's Herald 1x Melira, Sylvok Outcast 1x Tajuru Preserver 2x Thornweald Archer 3x Beast Within 1x Reclamation Sage 1x Wild Defiance 1x Leyline of Vitality 2x Pithing Needle

    Peculiar timing with Modern Masters 17 right around the corner. Read the full article here
  6. Which of these is most likely to happen?
  7. Looks like you can pre order Modern Masters 2017 for $205 on eBay Anyone planning on ordering?
  8. What are some removal cards that are unused or underrated in Modern?
  9. There's been lots of talk lately about how stale Modern is and how it needs a shake up. Personally I don't think Wizards is going to touch Modern unless they absolutely have to now that there is no PT and they are focusing on Standard. But let's discuss it anyway, because it's fun to speculate. What are the pros and cons of unbanning Jace, the Mind Sculptor? Is it unban worthy?
  10. This is my favorite Modern Deck. I have it built and love the little nuances people do with the deck. Making it more control based vs. tempo based. A lot of people will site Ryan Overturf's list vs. Kevin Jone's list. Ryan's list is more control while Kevin's is more tempo. I've tried both ends and I've found just in my experience the Tempo based does a bit better for my meta. With Gitaxian Probe being banned, I've been curious to see how people will build their lists. Let's look at a Top 8 deck from this past weekend: 4 Fatal Push! Which honestly isn't too surprising with how fast modern can be. Fatal Push could almost be our Lightning Bolt 5-8 in a sense and we can easily do a Push-Snap-Push as well. I'm still not 100% on Young Pyromancer being in the deck still without Probe. He's still a really good card but no probe, he does take a hit. Anyone else a Delver fan?
  11. Post Golgari Grave-Troll ban, is Dredge still competitive? From what I hear Golgari Thug is taking it's place in the deck, is it enough?
  12. Lately I've heard more and more people compare Modern to Legacy and how it's popularity is starting to dwindle. Not sure if I agree with that, I think Modern still has it's niche and it's not on the level of Legacy yet. If we don't get enough reprints regularly it could go that way
  13. Modern Masters is coming up in March, what's on your reprint wish list? Cavern of Souls Liliana of the Veil Snapcaster Mage Tarmogoyf (still pushing $120+) Noble Hierarch
  14. Fort Worth/Dallas Texas held the largest Grand Prix in the history of Magic: The Gathering events; 2,019 players have shown up with their Modern format decks to play their way into one of the top 8 spots. Corey Burkhart has made a name for himself in the past using his Grixis control deck, which helped him to go undefeated with a 14 win and 0 loss standing: pretty impressive! Corey even took down Michael Mei's Infect deck in the semifinals. One more win and he would have beaten every single deck with no loss in one weekend. He made it to the finals and faced one more player in his attempt to take home the trophy and prizes. Kevin Mackie, a native Texan, made a surprising appearance in the top 8. He brought with him his mono-red “Skred red” deck, an aggressive powerhouse featuring Infect and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. As the final game drew to a close, Corey Burkhart was left facing a pretty powerful planeswalker: Koth of the Hammer. Corey tried to find a counter spell for Koth but it failed. Next, Corey looked to his “Ancestral Vision”, which also failed and just gave him three lands instead of something useful to keep alive. The only thing left to do was put out Tasigur, the Golden Fang, which was quickly taken out by Skred. Then Kevin made Koth go ultimate. His ultimate ability, if you’re not familiar is: −5: You get an emblem with "Mountains you control have ‘Tap: This land deals 1 damage to target creature or player.'" While the judges and players looked around the feature table for an emblem to represent Koths ultimate, Corey Burkhart had a better idea. He grabbed the trophy with a smile on his face and handed it to Kevin saying “Congratulations”. Here are their decks, in case you are interested in what cards they used. Kevin Mackie’s deck: Planeswalker (5) 4 Koth of the Hammer 1 Chandra, Torch of Defiance Creature (8) 3 Pia and Kiran Nalaar 3 Stormbreath Dragon 2 Eternal Scourge Witchcraft (3) 3 Anger of the Gods Instant (9) 4 Lightning Bolt 4 Skred 1 Magma Jet Artifact (10) 1 Pyrite Spellbomb 4 Relic of Progenitus 4 Mind Stone 1 Batterskull Enchantment (3) 3 Blood Moon Terra (22) 20 Snow-Covered Mountain 2 Scrying Sheets Corey Burkhart’s deck: Creature (7) 4 Snapcaster Mage 3 Tasigur, the Golden Fang Sorcery (8) 4 Ancestral Vision 4 Serum Visions Instant (22) 2 Countersquall 4 Cryptic Command 3 Kolaghan's Command 4 Lightning Bolt 2 Spell Snare 3 Terminate 4 Thought Scour Artifact (1) 1 Engineered Explosives Terra (22) 1 Blood Crypt 2 Creeping Tar Pit 3 Island1 Mountain 4 Polluted Delta 4 Scalding Tarn 1 Spirebluff Canal 2 Steam Vents 1 Sulfur Falls 1 Swamp 2 Watery Grave As always, thanks for reading my blog!
  15. Should Stoneforge Mystic be unbanned? Why or why not?

    Last year we had Eldrazi Winter. Is this winter going to be Winter of Dredge?
  17. With Modern Masters 17 being announced for a March release, what are some cards you want and should be reprinted? Since they specifically mentioned Innistrad and RtR blocks, you have to imagine we'll probably get Liliana of the Veil, Snapcaster Mage and maybe Delver. In RtR I'm guessing Voice of Resurgence and maybe Abrupt Decay? There isn't much else to get excited about from RtR block than those and the shock lands. What Modern (we) really need is a reprint of land bases, specifically Zendikar fetches. Is there any reason NOT to reprint them in MM17?
  18. Looks like Abzan was popular at Worlds...
  19. NEW DECK TECH UP ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL EVERYONE!! Check it out when you can, thanks!!
  20. 21 damage on turn 2, was fun seeing this go off
  21. Eldritch Moon was released this weekend, we've had a chance to see the spoilers and a little time to digest. What cards from Eldritch Moon do you think we will see in Modern? My predictions:
  22. Infinite combos seem to be becoming more and more popular in Modern, and even in standard format. What are everybody's favorite infinite combos? My personal favorite: Grand Architect + Pili-Pala + Memnarch
  23. This deck has been a labor of love and something I've been working on for a few months. It's gone through a lot of changes but I feel like now I at least have the mainboard set in stone. Sideboard still needs a lot of work but this deck has won on turn 3 for me before an can consistently win by turn 4 and 5.
