Quote from germanturkeyfor a block designed with modern in mind, there is nothing that is currently modern playable... oh well, only day 1.
Quote from LectrysHeliod might have a bit of promise in Death and Taxes as a finisher who can be Vialed in, doesn't argue with Thalia, and doesn't die to nearly all removal (especially when not Devoted, but even when Devoted, he's Indestructible and Dismember just fails to kill him).
Quote from TheDasuriNo, he needed a hatebear ability like opponents stuff etb tapped. He is meh.
The gods will only see competitive play if they are worth playing without being a creature. So far the only one that fits that is Thassa as the card is strong enough without being a creature to consider being played.
Quote from The Dead WeathermanHammer of Purphoros is totally playable. What opiate have you been prescribed?
Quote from Konstant1nI was wondering why Council of the Absolute had the 'non-creature' clause then I remembered... This is modern magic.
Quote from SteBI saw Elvis riding a unicorn with his buddy Michael Jackson on the night sky yesterday. You can say it didnt happen all you want. It did.
Quote from MastodonWhen I throw a deck together, all I do is stick 3 surgical extractions and 3 pithing needles in the sideboard. Then I think to myself "that'll do"
Quote from RininStill waiting for the "Deathrite shaman of Theros"
Quote from Tinfoil HatYeah cuz Fervor is totally tearing up the format right now.
Quote from quizzlemanizzle?
Curse of the Swine
Chained to the Rocks
Gift of Immortality
Commune with the Gods
maybe Heliod and Nylea
They are all playable in modern, they just need to find a home or a new home has to be created for them but they are certainly powerful enough cards to be played.
Quote from JaceTheWalletShredder
Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from izzetmageThe Hammer looks unplayable. There are more than enough mana sinks for any deck, regardless of archetype. Aggro decks have Grim Lavamancer and Deathrite Shaman. Midrange and control have manlands.
Really, just play manlands.
