Quote from Havrekjex »Sean Connery is back, baby! I dig the ability too. It reminds me of Angelic Skirmisher, only a bit more fragile.
Quote from enollava »I hope it continues. We really need a FTV tutors set. I could think of a few tutors in need of a reprint badly.
Quote from MemoryLapse »BTW guys, Painter's Servant works pretty well for us against Eldrazi. It turns off Temple and Eye and Even Ancient Stirrings! I wanted to mention something - Eldrazi is obsoleting Tron currently. This means that our worst matchup is being phased out in favor of this Eldrazi thing. Now Eldrazi is good and in no way to be considered a super easy match, but it's infinitely better than our Tron match was.

Quote from weberbirding »Hi everyone,
First off, thanks so much for all the discussion here, it has helped me a lot! I played at my LGS FNM last night (only my second Modern tournament), which had 40 people (and free play mats) and I went 3-2 coming in 12th (which earned me $6). I admittedly had some pretty easy match ups, and my two losses were both to Twin. I'm hoping to get some feedback on my deck (list below) and matchups. I'm currently going GB (my preferred) but I may splash white for Burrenton Forge-Tender and Mirror Entity, among other good white cards I may sideboard. Any suggestions are appreciated!
2 October 2015 Modern FNM
Round 1: 2-0
GW deck with birds and lots of other mana producers that aims to get card advantage with hideaway lands and cast Emerakul. He was too slow and said he is usually faster. I won game one with Champion forestwalk and game two with Nyx devotion --> Chord --> Craterhoof.
Round 2: 2-1
My most fun match of the night by far. GW CoCo deck with an infinite combo involving Finks and some card with the ability 'haunt' to give infinite life. It was a super fun race and fortunately he only CoCo'd into infinite in game two. I won game one with Ezuri and game two with Champion forestwalk. A good and similar deck, but as he said to me, my "clock is too fast!"
Round 3: 0-2
Spinter twin. Bad draws, a wrong choice on Thoughtseize game two (should have taken the creature that combos with Twin but instead took 1 of 2 copies of Twin in his hand; that just comes down to my inexperience). Very sad match up.
Round 4: 0-2
Spinter twin. Absolutely horrible draws, tried to mull into a choke or other sideboard card game two and ended up mulled down to 4.
Round 5: 2-0
Weird black deck that was based around making me discard cards and some creatures and enchantments that make me lose life if I have less than a certain amount of cards in my hand (which unfortunately is often the case after turn 2 with elves). Relatively easy win as I was much faster and had more of a solid plan. He forfeited game two mid-way because he had nothing in his hand and wanted to go home early.
Deck notes: I'm sort of on a budget, so my land base is lacking any more fetches, shocks, or Caverns at the moment; need to save up for those. However, my land base still seems a bit unbalanced and I can't always get B when I need it. I'll pick up another Tomb or Palace soon. I also only have Craterhoof in there (a remnant from my past combo version) until I get another copy of Ezuri. My sideboard needs the most help, but balancing out my main deck is also needed.
