Quote from togorian25There should probably be smaller ones, it will (should) keep discussion more focused and less confusing.
Thank you for these thread, they are extremely usefull.
Quote from u-579I haven't really been paying attention to the mtgo results, but have any of the non red affinity decks posted good results?
Also, your list of hate cards that you copy straight from your legacy primer still has all of the legacy only hate cards on it.
Quote from glurmanQuote from Lotus CobraCould someone help me create a sideboard for the current meta?
-1 Merfolk deck
+1 Almost literally anything else
Sorry if that isn't quite what you're looking for, but it's way more helpful strategically.

Quote from u-579Is there a posibility of Rb affinity that makes use of stuff like shrapnel blast and disciple of the vault? Or would adding the second color slow it down too much?
Quote from PhantomLotusGreat primer! I like how you gave coverage to the various builds.
Not Modern legal:
Null Rod needs to come out of the hate section
Meekstone and Retribution of the Meek need to come out of the sideboarding section
Quote from ManasjapNice primer!
Under "the suspects", there's:
"Galvanic Blast: Noone needs to be told why Lightning Bolt... ...Unfortunately, it strains your mana by either forcing more Glimmervoids (thus less art lands) or Great Furnace, which is a kill-able Citadel to the rest of the deck.'"
In italics is irrelevant in modern ^_^.
Quote from RaggedjoeThanks!
I coulda sworn Null Rod was reprinted...
Is there anything I'm missing?
Quote from Sto0kerzEver thought of an affinity deck with a blue splash?
4 Signal Pest
4 Vault Skirge
3 Master of Etherium
3 Etched Champion
3 Mox Opal
3 Springleaf Drum
4 Cranial Plating
4 Darksteel Citadel
3 City of Brass
4 Pact of negation
I know the card balancing is off, but could something along those lines work?
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.
Quote from slipknot72102The thing I find funny in all of this is the fact that affinity doesn't run any affinity cards anymore lol. Affinity was always my fallback on(for extended) if I couldn't get a deck brewed or couldn't find certain cards in time for PTQs.
Quote from Mark Rosewater »In response to your Lightning Blast, I'll eat this burrito.
Quote from slipknot72102 »This is why I started playing magic in the first place. It wasn't PT aspirations just making noobs cry by doing things that are perfectly fair.
Quote from Anne NoiseThoughtcast would like to have a word with you, but I know what you're saying. Then again, I call my Saga-era Tolarian Academy deck "Affinity" these days, when it pre-dates the mechanic entirely...
Quote from slipknot72102every list that I have seen hasn't even had thoughcast in there.
