    Hi friends. Yesterday played a 80 players tournament and 7 rounds. I was 5-2 and made 11 position.

    4 vial
    4 path
    4 arbiter
    4 stoneforge
    4 giver of runes
    4 displacer
    4 tks
    4 flickerwisp
    3 thalia
    1 batterskull
    1 sword of fire and ice
    1 sword of ligth and shadow
    4 muta
    4 quarter
    4 eldrazi temple
    4 silent clearing
    6 plains
    3 revoker
    1 thalia
    3 burrenton
    1 gideon
    3 rip
    1 settle
    3 dismember

    1 round, mardu shadow 2-0. He started discard and removal my board but stoneforge made 2x1 for win. Mutavault was great.
    2 round, monogreentron 0-2. Lose for things of tron, turn 3 tron gg.
    Second he can win only for topdeck oblivion stone after my tks exiled one...what he draw??? Yes oblivion stone...
    3 round, 4 colour urza 2-0. Arbiter,thalia and tks win easy...both of games.
    4 round, vengevine 2-1. He played slow and giver,displacer,tks and flicker wins. Second, easy win. Third, rip and settle wins
    5 round, grixis shadow 2-0. Stoneforge and muta shrines again for easy win. Sword light and shadow was great with vial on 3 for flickers on cementery...
    6 round, burn 1-2. Vial,thalia, giver,stoneforge and batterskull wins...second , smash to smeteers on vial wins the game...third i mull on 5 and not great hand.
    Well i think burn is favorable mutch but i was very unlucky with the hands.
    This game was win and in for top
    7 round jund 2-1 win.
    Wrenn and six destroyed me on draw.
    Second and third rip and stoneforge wins.

    Ok, stoneforge is amazing for us. Maybe i put sword of feast and fame in side for jund and green decks, untap lands with displacer is great. Against tron i think we must take damping sphere or field of ruin...but mutavault was great.

    Totally agree. I think arbiter,mindcensor and strangler take more power now. But with jund,jeskay and other midrange decks in format i think gw hatebears/taxes will be more powerfull. Autumn knight and voice are cards so important right now. Other question, if we take stoneforge in taxes decks we are more vulnerable to stony,ouphe,kolagans command and other artifacts hate...
    Conclusion, i think we dont want stoneforge...we fight against that

    Rip is the best cementery hate card in modern. It is more difficult to destroy than cage. Against coco you have other cards(tidehollow,tks,thalia). 3 cages and 2 rip could be fine. 3 rip 3 cage...

    I made some changes in the deck.
    My list and report:
    4 fatal push (vials)
    3 path to exile
    4 thalia guardian thraven
    4 leonin arbitre

    3 smuggler copter
    3 shamblin bent
    1 swamp
    2 plains
    1 godless shrine
    4 marsh flats
    4 ghost quarter
    4 eldrazi temple
    4 cave of koilos
    4 rest in peace
    4 stony silence
    3 burrenton forge tender
    1 path to exile
    3 guardian reliqs leonin

    1 round
    Rg titanshift 1-2 lose (on draw)
    2 round
    Monowhite death and taxes 2-1 win (on draw)
    3 round
    Bant relicary 2-0 win (on play)
    4 round
    Dregde 2-1 win (on draw)
    5 round

    6 round
    Not play. 7 in the swiss
    Amulet titan 2-1 (on draw)
    Lose to pili- pala combo...i dont know about this combo super ramdom

    I dont think is time for aether vial, not control in format and we have so strong cards for turn 2 against many decks in format. Lingerings souls - copter sinergy win itselfs and are very powerfull midrange cards, i love it. I was surprised for power of deck.
