Quote from Emracool »Hi everyone! I am the creator of the deck and just saw there was a forum here.
I played pod for two years. The day pod got banned, I called up my buddy who is the best player I know, and he said one sentence that would change my MTG life; "Wilt leaf liege pumps siege rhino..."
When that sentence was said, we got to work and spent days tweaking and tuning the list and we found out it was the real deal!! We both posted our own ways to get the deck publicised (mine was a reddit post his was an article on the deck), and the people who tested it loved it but some were skeptical. Jacob Wilson then top 8ed a pro tour, and the deck jumped in value.

I have found the matchup (at least in my list) in our favor.Also, a one of wont do anything without a way to tutor it or Gods luck.
Quote from Ageless127 »Have any of you played 3 Engineered Explosives in the SB? I'm thinking about adding a third one because it did work against some the decks where it was needed.
Quote from Rakthen »So, I played my list posted last page tonight at FNM. Lot's of kids play so not much in the way of real decks except one, Abzan with goyfs. I'll be honest, I did nearly everything I could and I lost hard to him I siezed him and he had enough threats and path didn't do enough ether. Any ideas?
Quote from Ageless127 »Went to a modern tourney today and went 4-2. Here's the matchups:
Round 1 against Abzan Midrange (Lilis and Goyfs). 2-0
Round 2 against B/W Tokens. 0-2
Round 3 against BUG Infect. 2-0
Round 4 against UWR Control. 0-2
Round 5 against Mono Green Elves. 2-1
Round 6 against B/R Midrange. 2-0

I wouldn't change anything MD but I might want to add Thrun or other good cards against UWR control in the Sideboard since 5 people were playing it out of 24. Thoughtseize, Duress, Decay, Zealous Persecution and Engineered Explosives did work and I wouldn't cut them.
If you have any questions about the match ups, feel free to ask!

I never use Slaughter Pact, so I am going to change it to another stony silence. Been playing the deck on Xmage and haven't lost yet, but haven't played any tier 1 decks so far. Played UWR twin, Dega Midrange, UWR control and 8 rack (must have been the most frustrating deck ever for him to play against).
Quote from Ageless127 »After some brief testing against UWR Control and UW Control, I feel that the control matchup is not in our favor. Any suggestions for some decent cards against control? I've added a Thrun in the sideboard and I'm also thinking about something like Sword of War and Peace because once it resolves and you are able to equip on one of your creatures, it's pretty much GG then. Other than Thrun, SoWaP and card disruption like Duress and Thoughtseize, what other viable options are there?
