    I'm throwing my take on it together. This feels a lot like an edh deck which I really like, what are your thoughts on running Nissa, Steward of Elements as a finisher? I've been trying to brew a good bant deck and it feels like any color combination without red or black struggles with win conditions. Maybe Nissa's ult can be decent? Here's what I'm testing out: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/03-07-17-bant-command/

    I like your list RobintM, I love bant colors, if you keep playing this let me know how it goes! I would love to get that lock going. I think Glory-Bound Initiate has some good synergy with bouncing it back to hand and then flashing it in with vial. I think if I were to play this list I'd play 2 Glory-Bound or Selfless Spirits. I'm pretty new to this archetype but what are the advantages to playing the traditional Temur lists over Bant or Sultai?

    I was definitely looking at pulling some blasting stations combos. I'll try the singular blasting station and see how it goes

    Hey guys, here's my attempt to try a three color emeria list. I've seen time and time again people saying that three colors is a strain on the mana base but after play testing it seems like it can win at least 1 match at an FNM. Wanted to test Realmwright to make everything a plains but it seems like a low impact card that'll often be dead.

    Also, does anyone have any feedback on my mortarpod/blasting station split. Don't know what would be optimal. I'm pretty terrible at brewing so any feedback would be appreciated!

    I've been thinking about trying to brew the bant list after I try playing the UW list for awhile. I've been thinking of trying Realmwright to maybe help with mana fixing and turning ghost quarters and islands into plains. Has anyone mentioned rralmwright before. It's probably really janky but I thought it might open up three color versions of Emeria to cheat their mana base slightly

    I've seen a couple of lists running Botanical Sanctum. Why not run Razorverge Thicket so you can get either the dork of path turn 1?

    I've really grown fond of the flexibility of kessig. One of the TCG Player videos cut it in a couple of matches and it didn't make too much sense to me. Trample feels very impactful.

    Is it still worth it to run kessig if you cut the combo? I've seen a lot of videos where they board out kessig wolf run if they board out the combo

    Someone mentioned that Kira might be a good sideboard slot to keep your threats on the board, I think I might try that and Spirit of the Labyrinth. Can you Spell Queller Ancestral Visions when the suspend is up or only when it is cast?

    Went 2-1 last night. Beat Bant Spirits in 2, Goblins in 3 (Kichen Finks is an amazing card). Lost to Grixis control at 3. I ran 2 geists in my sideboard and 2 voice maindeck and those seemed like the cards that can best it. Unified Will worked up until he realized that I was running that over negate and starting throwing snapcasters and tasigurs at me. Anyone have any good strategies to board into grixis. 3 people played it last night. Also thanks for all the help!

    There's like 2/3 control decks I think and a lot of aggro. Thanks! I definitely like Coursers life gain and pseudo scry

    Going to play in my first FNM tonight rather than just kitchen table rounds with my buddies. I'm on the fence about some of the 2 of creatures. I'm running 1 Scooze and 2 Coursers. Would it be better to run 2 Scoozes and 1 Tireless Tracker instead?

    Thanks! When boarding in staticaster what are you looking to hit? Glistener elf, elves and affinity pieces right?

    I just sleeved up my knightfall deck again and am going to play in some local modern events. It has been awhile since I followed Knightfall so if anyone has some time and can give me some feedback on sideboard cards and some maindeck creatures that would be really helpful! List is here: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/551798#online

    Cards that I have for the sideboard that I'm thinking of putting in: Loxodon Smiter, Izzet Staticaster, Dismember,and Unified Will. Right now I feel like I should cut Fauna Shaman and a Courser of Kruphix for Spellskites especially since everyone I know is trying to run Fatal Push.

    My meta is mostly burn, infect, jund, abzan, merfolk, bant eldrazi, grixis control and dredge. I have two friends that play bant spirits and grixis goroyo's vengence. From my own testing with them it felt like I had a good winrate against burn and infect. The goroyo's vengence deck is easy for me to beat after sideboarding Thalia in. If I can get her in it usually stops all Emrakul attacking out of nowhere. I don't know if this is the best approach to tackling the deck but it has been working.

    A couple of questions too, does Narnam Renegade fit in the deck anywhere? The card looks fun and revolt seems very easy to trigger with Knight, Selfless Spirit and if I'm not mistaken the angel token from Geist. Also, I've only pulled the combo off about 20% of the time should the number of Retreats be put up to 3 instead of 2?

    Any feedback would be helpful, thanks!

    Eidolon is great but Meddling Mage works really nicely with Ojutai's Command. Playing Meddling Mage definitely comes with a learning curve but I think the pay off is there. I play against infect a lot and being able to MM Become Immense, Might of Old Krosa or any other pump spell while being able to Negate or hold up a Cryptic Command is hard to break out of. Infect and Dredge feel like the decks to beat right now and I think the match up vs Infect is very favorable.

    I like Voice and Ooze and would love to find a way to play them. In magic christmas land I would love to slot Stoneforge Mystic in here, maybe one day.
