Welcome back to another week with some adventures in Modern. This time I wanted to try something that was a bit more aggressive. I saw this list awhile back and wanted to test it out making a few minor changes. Here is the video deck tech. Followed by the actual list.

Next up a few matches to see how it plays out.

As you can see that is almost a nightmare scenario for the deck. You really want to be winning as early as possible and once you get into the late turns your defeat becomes more likely. This did show me that I never want to face a Bant Midrange deck though. In all seriousness it did show the need for something like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for the board. 

This was a much better showing of the deck. It was even able to grind. When you play 12 "Soul Sister" type creatures against an all creature deck. Chances are you will be able to succeed. I also had the ability to get a faster start and put him on the defense which was helpful.

Overall I am very happy with the deck. I learned the sideboard needs some work. I mentioned Gideons and maybe something else for control matchups. I do not want to mess with the core of the deck too much because one thing it has going for it, is it's speed. It can throw out a lot of power very quickly with Brave the Elements to protect your crew.

I mentioned fixing the mana base, and I may just put in the 2 plains instead of the desert and Abbey. Other than that I do like the main deck. Perhaps shaving a Brave or 2 and fitting in a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben? That may help sure up some other matchups and it won't hurt me too bad. I will continue testing but thanks for reading and see you next time!


Maybe Unclaimed Territory by Rerepete at Wed, 12/06/2017 - 22:44

Maybe Unclaimed Territory might be worth a look to get Norin in the deck.

Also Abzan Falconer in the board will help against ground stalls.

I am not a huge fan of Norin but he may worth a try. I did not think about falconer mostly because of the 3 mana cost. However in the board that might be an excellent choice. I will try to test these out! Thank you.
