Quote from aleixarboix »You run 4 urborg 4 muta ? Or 3/3? Pack rat is very slow
Quote from aleixarboix »lately I have bad results. Many times I miss some other winn condition. many times I lose the game because I do not have raven's crime or because I do not have dakmor salvage cover. in many games only discarded insured by turn and you can fail the landrop. I think I'll play with 23 lands and a tombstalker of mb. any suggestion?
Quote from SirFrancois »I haven't played 8 rack in awhile, but am thinking of bringing it back but have seen a increase in 5c humans. IS this a bad matchup for us? They play similar to affinity which I recall being a bad matchup for us, but they growing bigger and wider faster. Just wanted to get your guys' opinion
Quote from Broken Prophet »You could also -2 Lilly to trade with a creature, and then follow up with a Fatal Push to take another one. It's a desperate trade, but it's sometimes worth it.
Also, 80% of the time or so, we don't really need to trigger Revolt.
Quote from Psyqo »That's not a bad idea. Sometimes Lili is dead regardless and this way uses her to your benefit. Good play!
Quote from Psyqo »When playing 8-rack how do you folks turn on Revolt for Fatal Push? I see these 4 ways, which still feels too few:
Urborg Legend ruleFetching using the lone Marsh Flats or Bloodstained MireOne of your Mutavaults dieing in combatSmallpox destroying one of your lands
Am I missing other ways to trigger Revolt?
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »Blood Sun seems to be getting a lot of attention from the legacy community
Still no spoilers that look impactful for modern yet
Quote from Kassill »I will experiment with him as a 1-2 of for now and let you all know. Just thought he was neat and I've always liked the idea of a R/B 8rack with Blighting, K-command, etc.
Quote from KTROJAN »Yup I have to agree modern is the biggest luck format. Better to be lucky than good in modern imo. When you’ve been playing for al of Magic’s existence and you lose to nooby mc nooberson missingtriggers, miscounting damage, skipping phases, and slow rolling/playing because they don’t know any better is extremely frustrating. A guy win our local open last month with affinity and he misses leathal and misplays regularly on casual thursdays. It’s good for those players because they play things like burn, 8wack, affinity (see people misplay the crap out of that and win), and counters coco mostly. Then they try to step up to something like gds and actually have to learn how to be decent players.
In the long run is it good or bad to have modern be such an easy format to get into? It’s great to see more people playing magic and the community growing and modern allows for that much better than standard imo. If prices didn’t matter I think modern would still be the format for those people because it doesn’t have fow like legacy where if you try to play without a clue you can easily get punished extremely hard.
