Apr 22, 2019Hi guys, I'm relatively new to MTG, been playing Modern online for a few years. I'm pretty keen to give Legacy a go, and since I play Rock in Modern, I like the look of Nic Fit. Thing is, it's taken years to understand the intricacies of the game in Modern, mostly how to play against each other archetype, and especially how to sideboard against them - this is the trickiest bit, the rest is just playing the game. The Modern forums on here have fantastic sideboard guides, I'm wondering, is there something similar that I can read for Nic Fit in Legacy. This primer and some others I've found online are great, but for noobs like me nothing beats a straight up sideboard guide.Posted in: Midrange
Mar 25, 2019Posted in: MidrangeQuote from Tempest753 »Hey yriel, long time no see
Is the matchup basically unwinnable without surgical? I ask because I’ve been trying to make do with spellbombs, damping sphere, and Cage (extraction’s price tag is ridiculous nowadays), but I can’t tell if the artifacts are subpar or I’ve simply been getting unlucky.
I took a few months hiatus from magic so my knowledge of the Phoenix matchup is basically null.
Surgical quite is critical, and really makes this match-up very winnable, especially considering the nature of our deck is to keep them at bay with spot removal. If we can old them off for long enough to draw a Surgical, we're in a really good place.
I actually feel confidant against Izzet Phoenix with 2x Surgical, 2x Spellbomb, and 1x Cage, also Damping Sphere and a couple of Collective Brutalities coming off the sideboard.
Speaking of how important Surgical is, just the other day I lost a game 2 that was looking to be a close win, when my opponent top-decked three Phoenixes in four turns eugh...
Mar 21, 2019Posted in: MidrangeQuote from MajorRiot »Jund is probably the worst deck in Modern that is a playable deck, GB isn't too far behind it. I would not recommend playing this deck or any mid-range deck if you are looking for wins or competitive games. I would also not recommend Jund or GB if you suffer from depression or have suicidal thoughts.
Just look at this thread. I scrolled back a few a pages, there is nobody on here celebrating anything. Entire weeks go by without a single post. And when there is a post, it is someone suggesting something new for the deck, that is only immediately shot down, with good reason usually. I've been playing this deck for a long time now, hoping that something would make midrange playable but we are beyond that now. Nobody wants fair games, they want infinite loop or instant kill. Playing anything else, you are just wasting your time. Move on to some other deck, that is easier to play, like Burn or Tron.
Close this thread. It's over.

I have a new project running, which is to convert the primers to my new webpage: https://www.greatnessatanycost.com/
There you can find the Amulet Titan SB Guide!
Nice ... bookmarked!

But I get the idea behind her. One reason for it is that for example Finks, is imo not a great card anymore in Jund. A lot of threats in modern are flying atm, especially since phoenix is a deck. Finks doesn't block at all here. And this observation has led me to the desire of a great flying stabilizing creature, which is actually able to block. unfortunatlely I haven't found any creature that is good enough. Ishkanah is a similar strategy I think. She can block flying threats and provide needed time threough chump blocking. Recurring her also seems valuable.
I personally am a bit higher on PKN though, which has similar purposes. But I like the cheaper cost and the possibility of removing a threat or 2 in addition.

... sacking lands and clues to Vraska, Golgari Queen is a gravy train.

Jul 11, 2018Here's a hair-brained idea...Posted in: Midrange
So, card selection/variance are our greatest enemy... so, only the best cards, and no 1-ofs... 1/2-drops as 3-ofs, 3-drops as 2-ofs ... with a few exceptions based on cards that you don't mind having two of at once, or has an equivalent, or you don't mind waiting for ... and just loot the rest away.
Or another version, with Bedlam Reveler supported by 23 spells... I'll be playing this one.

I think I give it a spin just out of fun. Should be that at least.
Been playing this.. super fun deck, once I got used to sequencing everything... it's powerful too!
On Faithless Looting in a 'normal' Jund deck, T4 Bloodbraid Elf into Faithless Looting could be pretty miserable... other than that though I like the idea.
