Quote from charlieguide »Eldrazi -- the winningest Modern tournament deck over the last 30 days -- is "fringe?"
Quote from Mykhoncho »I think the recent results with jeskai are a way to go now.
I've been having amazing matchups against most of the meta decks. (Need some more practice against eldrazi tron)

Assuming this may be the way to go, what are your guys' thoughts on the sideboard?
Quote from Mykhoncho »Awesome!
Looks like Delver is in the lead. The list I posted above is pretty close to the ones that have had the most recent results, but with opt for instant speed cantrips/running 17 lands and electrolyze for aggro/souls.
Either way, play which ever you want. I don’t know if anyone has agreed to a set list yet.
Quote from GreatNateMTG »Hi everyone. I asked my viewers which deck they'd like to see next (http://www.strawpoll.me/14242602), and I am hoping to get some feedback from this thread on which Jeskai Delver build to focus on. The main benefit I see to running a delver list over the popular Tempo lists, is tjat you have an earlier clock, and in theory the matchups like RG Valakut should be better.
What do you think?
**I saw another Delver thread and posted this there as well.
Quote from tlhunter07 »Hey guys- I've been playing UWR in Modern for a very long time. I started with UWR Draw-Go, and then got into Nahiri when she was printed. Played her for a while, and then Jeskai fell off the map a bit for a few months. During that time, I screwed around with Jeskai Delver, as well as UW and Esper Control. Over the summer, Jonathan Rosum got top 8 at four Opens in a row with a Jeskai Tempo list, and I immediately bought into it and started playing it. Harlan won the Open a few weeks later, and I was sold. Currently playing his list at the moment, but I have always been interested in Jeskai decks that are a bit off that radar (like Jeskai Pyromancer Ascension). I have a Delver list that I'd like some critique on. Thanks!

As a side note, I haven't tested Chart much, but on paper it looks insane. Has anyone tested it, and how has it performed?
Quote from slipknot72102 »the card itself really isn't worth the card board its printed on...does it serve a purpose? Sure its a blue 1 drop that might not be a 1/1. I would not put it in a list and expect to win a PTQ or GP though.
