    I think BBE gives this deck a decent boost. You don't generally want to Evo into it, but you can cascade into evo or saheeli and get a lot of value.

    It's very rare that you actually traverse for a GCR and pretty much every time you have a GCR, it would be better to just be a TBR. This was already heavily debated.

    I think the all or nothing of the deck is why it's fallen out. Go wide strategies are decent against DS variants, but you need to win the die roll for it to really matter.

    B to permanently return a goyf or shadow vs 2 life and their cmc to return it for a swing. This is different.

    Seems solid for a little zoo list like you said. Triggers E1, big dumb beat stick. I wouldn't run a full 4 I don't think, but might test a low curve list with him. Might not be better than the blitz builds though.

    Claim // Fame could be sweet in the deck as a 1 or 2 of. B to return to the field is pretty good and the R1 for +2/0 and haste isn't terrible.

    Yeah, grixis being able to dig for hate cards and the delve threats being outside of push territory are just better for the new meta. This is still a strong deck, but not as good in the meta.

    Well, blue splash did well over the weekend, so it's a viable option. I like the white splash more personally though.

    White splash is great if you have a midrange meta. Goyfs are kind of the reason you go jund. Flayer is a good card, but not a good replacement for goyfs. If you can't get them, I'd stick to grixis honestly.

    In short, none of them are as good, but pilgrim would probably be the best since it taps for W.

    It's only slightly lower probability of having 2 in your opener and helps a little to not hit them as often late game. Which usually sucks. I like dropping to 3 IoK

    I know I cut an IoK. I can't remember what the second cut was, but I'll post my list when I get home. Smile

    Went to a modern game day today. Went undefeated going into the top 8.

    Round 1, 2-1 vs trondrazi

    Hand hate and big dudes took me to the gold.

    Round 2, 2-1 vs dredge.

    Got lucky and he had to mull to 3 game 1, game 2 he had the nuts, game 3 he misplayed and tried to conflag my 2/3 goof and grew it to a 4/5 in the process while I got my beats on with goof and shadow.

    Round 3 and 4, Ad nauseum. 4-0, The games played pretty similarly. Fast beats and hand hate. Drew the right half of my deck post board and won both game 2's through leylines.

    Quarter finals vs Affinity while I was in the first seed. He nut drew, I lost. Game 2, I drew removal and beaters, beat him, game 3, kept a terminate, grudge, 3 lands a shadow and traverse. He had a fast hand with 3 ravagers, I lost.

    I ran a pretty stock 75, but made room for 2 flayer mb. I loved them. They don't care about chump blockers and draw removal. They were all stars for me today.
