You don't call "dying to removal" if the removal is more expensive in resources than the creature. If you have to spend BG (Abrupt Decay), or W + basic land (PtE) to remove a 1G, that is not "dying to removal". Strictly speaking Goyf dies to removal, but actually your removal is dying to Goyf.
Quote from hawk1674"Why are you tapping your lands the wrong way?"
He was explaining that you ALWAYS tap your lands to the left to show they have been used. He even taught his kids - Always to the left.
Quote from King Punyour friend should engrave "always to the left" on his epiTAPh
seriously, is your friend part of the gestapo?
Quote from Celestial_Crusader »Quote from Oopssorryy »Which will be good from Wizards stand point. I think they would rather the meta be swingy as opposed to the slow meta movement we have now. I'm curious to what reprints (that aren't yet in Modern) will they will give us, and what new cards they plan on printing to make Modern a faster meta format.Easy. Reprints not in yet: Pillage, Legends land cycle besides Pendelhaven
Horizon Canopy cycle
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth cycle
In-between Tectonic Edge and Wasteland (the activation cost is 1 mana but without the "at least 4 lands" requirement)

Quote from Alphez86 »You didn't mention Kiki Pod and Bogles. Does this mean that they are being downgraded to "Established"?
Are UR Twin and Tarmo Twin going to have separate threads? I am asking because you cited them separately.
Quote from Oopssorryy »I had expected an uptick in RDW at the last tournament, and instead got a face full of Affinity. When I asked why a bunch were playing it, most said they could out race Burn, with the down turn in BG decks they felt like the field was theirs for the taking.
Out of 40+ players, over half of the decks being played were Affinity if that gives you any info. I only ran into two burn players the whole day.
Quote from Shodai »I know you have strict criteria and are probably more informed than I, but it seems bizarre to me that GP winning decks like Kiki Pod, as well as decks that have top8'd in my recent memory like Infect and UWR Midrange are below Storm, Merfolk and RG Tron which I can't remember doing well in ages.
Quote from Neviskio »Speaking of the modern metagame, since I'm a bit out of the loop and I can't find satysfying results, when will it be the next big tournament to see what people break out of the new KTK cards? I know of GP milano since it's here in italy and most of my friends are going, but any big event sooner? I kinda want to see the top players what they are coming up with, if anything is changing or if the meta is still stable... I kinda don't enjoy any modern deck right now so I'm hoping for some innovation since my brews tend to not be good enough =P
Quote from LEH »My prediction is that a more aggressive UWR Control (or more controlling UWR Midrange) seems set for massive success with the current, and predicted future, meta game. Everyone seems to be experimenting with the new Ascension Storm deck and UWR is definitely the ideal deck to be fighting it with. Having access to a bunch of cheap removal/burn and counterspells like Leak and Spell Snare (which is absolutely bonkers card, atm - I'd be running an automatic 4 of right now). It also has access to Leyline/Helix/Batterskull against Burn, the other boogeyman of the format.

Random question, since in your list UR Twin and RUG Twin are listed separately, will they be having separate premiers?
