Quote from dougmtg »This deck has sparked by interest quite a bit. How much worse does the deck become if I use birds of paradise over the Hierarchs?
Quote from DMRxITxUP »As the modern meta has continued to develop, unfortunately I have started to drift away from this deck; it just seems to lack power compared to many other decks. Has anybody else been experiencing this lately? The lack of counter spells, hand disruption, and targeted removal just makes this deck inferior to other decks. Don't get me wrong, I love the dream hand of the Ghost Arbiter lock, but how often does it happen? It seems like twin combos off and kills us on turn 4 way more than we lock them out. Hatebears tries to play the game fair and force the opponent onto a level playing field, but at that point why don't I play Abzan and be able to go over the top in fair matchups? Plus, it seems unfair that they get to play legacy staples while we play some past-standard staples that barely cut it in modern as vanilla beaters. With all this being said, don't get me wrong, I still love the deck. However, it just feels inherently very weak to me. I don't know where the deck will go from here, I guess it just depends on innovation from you guys keeping the deck alive. Hopefully some new things can be printed to boost the power level of this deck, but for now, I guess I'm probably retiring it.
Quote from Lincae »After a long period playing burn, i`ve been testing this deck for a while, and the matchup that really scares me is Affinity: i`ve never been able to win a single game against that deck.
