Quote from Always_home »so I went 1-2 with my list at my local LGS Modern Monday.
M1- 4c Prime Speaker Vannifar. 2-0. G1 had the perfect curve of Coco on T3 and had the vial on 3 for a sweet EOT vial in Flickerwisp targeting his Voice of Resurgence token for the win. He didn't see Vannifar or Restoration Angel but did get out the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. G2 He didn't see any relevant combo pieces and I got the Leonin Arbiter lock on T2. I honestly didn't fully realize it was a Vannifer deck until he showed it to me after the match, but I think its a pretty favorable matchup with all the tricks we have. Vial with flickerwisp is pretty good. For G2 I sided out the Thalia's for a Surgical and two settle the wreckage's
M2-Elves. 0-2. G1 he went just went nuts and had out Elvish Archdruid and two Elvish Clancaller's on T2, making T3 lethal. G2 I sided in the two Settles in place of two Thalia's. I got the early pick on his one land hand with Arbiter on top of Pathing his Heritage druid, but he got me with a Coco into a Shaman of the Pack, and I just didn't have the board-state to keep up. This is easily one of the worst matchups as if you chose to put anything in your sideboard to wipe them out, you would be hurting yourself. Even a G2 Worship still dies to Rec Sage.
M3-Tron. 1-2. G1 I got the Arbiter Ghost quarter off early and kept him off tron with a draw step vial in Flickerwisp but still lost to Natural tron with Ugin wiping my board with no cards in hand. G2 I sided in 2 Dampening spheres, Gaddock Teeg, Surgical and the two Ramanup's, taking out 2 Vials, Eidelon of rhetoric and 3 Scavenging Ooze's. Won with Arbiter GQ and just a large creature base, keeping him off tron the whole game. G3 no SB changes. It was a very back and forth game, he got tron but I had Teeg, but he got out Walking Balista and Wurmcoil Engine and I just didn't see any other sb cards. Lost to just too much incremental advantage of Balista killing all my creatures.
Overall, I am realizing that my local meta is not the same as the bigger, overall meta. Facing two decks I wasn't prepared for at all was pretty eye-opening. I'm not sure what I will be doing next.

I went 3-1 at a local tournament with this build earlier tonight:
2-0 vs Enduring ideal - MVP Cryptic Command
0-2 vs Cheerios - brutal match up, not really sure what the game plan can be here
2-0 vs Mono W Martyr - Midrange creature decks are generally a meal for us
2-0 vs Mono W Taxes - Dessert. Although, Thalia can be a pain
The build felt great, so stream lined. I didn't come up against any Pheonix, Dredge, Shadow or Burn; interested to see how chalice fairs out of the board vs more T1 strategies.
Bonus rounds: Also played a few casual matches against my friend who was on UW Control. This kind of Ux control match up seems excellent for us as we are able to out draw and out control them. If some powerful blue cards are printed in Modern Horizons and the meta starts to shift in a more controlling direction that would likely be good for UR ElectroEnd.
-Midrange creature match up is great
-Cheerios is tough
-More testing vs Tier 1 decks needed
-Ux Control can be out controlled by this counter heavy build
Quote from JLambe13 »So I just wanted to put in my two cents with the deck. I have been testing the UR living end quiet alot lately and at first this deck was solid but I have been struggling more and more to squeeze outwins. I don't know if graveyard hate is becomming a bigger thing but I have struggled. I have tried different vairiants with faithless looting, izzet charm,etc. I'd like to think the a Grixis version may be ideal but may be too clunky too.
I just wanted to say I have had a rough time with this deck but it could be bad luck or possibly people know how to play around the deck a lot more.
