    The format is great, people are just mad that their pet decks from 2015 and 2016 aren't as good anymore. There is no rule in modern that Jund has to be good (even though DSJund is viable anyways) or draw-go control has to be good (looks at UW control as about 4% of the meta, good for 8th place on MtgGoldfish)

    Just built a budget version of this deck (no fetches yet, basically) and got my butt kicked 0-3 at a small LGS event between grixis delver, burn and death shadow jund. Seems like if that's going to be the norm around me, this deck isn't a good idea. Or am I missing something, different ways to play to work around decks with disruption and a clock or that stupid red eidolon?

    I like control but this is insane. I don't understand what exactly it is that you people want for a control deck in modern. If you want a UW deck with a playset of supreme verdict, path to exile and ten counters that sits there and stalls until turn 9 when you flash in Torrential Gearhulk to be a deck that makes two GP top 8s per year, then at some point isn't it fair to say that your demands are, in fact, unreasonable?

    This format is in a great place right now, and draw-go control isn't needed to make it better. And ffs I play mono blue tron! But I figured out that the deck has a ceiling and bought into Storm because I don't refuse to play any style or strategy besides blue-based draw-go. Grixis Shadow is a strong aggro-control deck based around disruption WITH A CLOCK! I mean...by this logic I could argue that Mishra's Workshop and Tanglewire should be legal because I want to play artifact based prison decks.
