2 Deputy of Detention While players like Eli Kassis and Harlan Firer have helped to spotlight the deck, there is still a bit of a dearth of content on how to play it. 1 Steam Vents 2 Magus of the Moon Creatures (37) Lots of talk about how whirza is the up and coming T1 deck so let's talk about how to beat it. We do need to pick up the slack against decks like UW though so Kambal pitches in; he is pretty amazing right now. Lands (19) 3 Polluted Delta We decided on playing a copy of [Card]Snow-Covered Forest[/Card] in addition to [Card]Prismatic Vista[/Card] to hedge against against burn and give us access to an additional colour when we need it. The key mainboard change was the addition of Charming Prince. -4 Reflector Mage, -3 Thalia 4 Thalia’s Lieutenant Shadow has Engineer and Temur Battle Rage. The stage is set for a new Modern format. Black midrange decks have been good in Modern for a very long time. Sideboard: 1 Pithing Needle 2 Blood Moon 2 Disdainful Stroke 3 Galvanic Blast 2 Mystical Dispute 1 Weather the Storm 4 Oko, Thief of Crowns. The Dismember, Deputy, and Engineer are totally stock at this point. 2 Gaddock Teeg [Card]Magus of the Moon[/Card] also has utility against other decks like Infect, Death’s Shadow and of course the Titan decks. 1 Silent Clearing 2 Prismatic Vista 2 Plague Engineer I think anywhere from two to four copies could be correct. +2 Kambal, +2 Unsettled Mariner 3 Collector Ouphe -2x Galvanic Blast, + Abrupt Decay, + Tezz, + 2x Trophy 1 Pithing Needle I hope that covers the strategies for any deck you could care about. Cheers. Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. We will be posting an updated one in December. Meddling Mage names: Oblivion Stone, Ugin the Spirit Dragon, UWx Control 1 Mystic Forge 2 Deputy of Detention You can bring your [Card]Rest in Peace[/Card]s, they will make a nice Trophy for us. Even with our manabase being stretched to have four colours I think it still runs smoothly. Remember that having a stock manabase is usually a mistake. I often appreciate Image because it lets us replicate abilities and when you respond to removal by Vial’ing it in, you are basically saving the creature. I am not currently playing any copies of [Card]Sai, Maverick Thopterist[/Card], something that might raise an eyebrow. 4 Ancient Ziggurat The format is slowing down, but that doesn’t mean we should put ourselves in a position to flop around while a [Card]Monastery Swiftspear[/Card] beats your brains in. Well, these events got canceled—the world has undergone massive changes in recent weeks—but today I will still gladly present the list that I was planning to play, along with my deck and sideboard guide. Decklist WOTC’s goal of slowing down the format, taking the focus away from the graveyard and diversifying things more seems to have been fulfilled on week one. ( Log Out /  Creatures (7) 3 Goblin Engineer 4 Urza, Lord High Artificer Spells (5) 2 Galvanic Blast 3 Whir of Invention Artifacts (28) ... You sideboard in hate, while the Urza player can side in discard, removal, counterspells and planeswalkers as needed. Collector Ouphe is stock and we play a third copy because of the difficulty of the Whirza matchup. 1 Waterlogged Grove Hogaak is dead and Stoneforge Mystic has returned. -3 Kitesail Freebooter, -3 Thalia 3 Charming Prince – Nihil Spellbomb, – Bridge, -2x Goblin, +2x Thoughtseize, + Tezzeret, + Assassin’s Trophy This adds refreshed importance to the copies of [Card]Galvanic Blast[/Card] I’ve been playing in my maindeck. 2 Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas It is much more important for your cantips to allow for more card selection now that games in the format are longer. Four-Color Whirza, by Harlan Firer. Prince has similar applications. Tezzeret Aob (out of the side) Sai (out of the side) Urza Thopter foundry Mystic forge. Wrap-Up I do appreciate you going on this slippery journey with me. Will is worse than Image at replicating abilities; not particularly exciting with Booter or Meddling and has to reset Lieutenant to reuse the ETB. I’d urge you to join me in the campaign to continue playing [Card]Mox Opal[/Card] until you can’t. 75 Cards Total. Meddling Mage names: Whir of Invention, Ensnaring Bridge. 4 Mox Opal But eidolon hurts any snapcaster, stops storm, hurts whirza, hurts bloodbraid, stops the other paradoxical Urza, stops bring to … 1 Snow-Covered Swamp To fight back against the competition, our sideboard should vary week by week, league by league. [/Spells] I especially like [Card]Nature’s Claim[/Card] because while it nabs any [Card]Eidolon of the Great Revel[/Card] while also effectively [Card]Negate[/Card]s any burn spell and then some at the cost of an extra copy of [Card]Mox Opal[/Card] you had lying around anyway. I do think I would also want to side the fourth Thalia and give up the third Collector Ouphe in such a build though; need to pick up the multi-spell hate slack from Sphere and Kambal’s exit. 3 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben You’re going to want flexible answers like Trophy and additional threats like Tezzeret no matter what. When the king is dead, a new one conquers the throne. I would not recommend playing it over Waterlogged Grove though. The sideboard is not particularly wild. So where does this bring us now? Creatures (37) Well they serve surprisingly similar functions when you look at the flicker ability. [/Creatures] Gaining three life against Burn and other aggressive decks feels great, especially now that we are up to five canlands. 4 Thopter Foundry So why did I trim Image for Prince? But really damping sphere is much better there. 1 Damping Sphere ( Log Out /  4 Noble Hierarch 1 Inventors’ Fair Personally, one of the greatest enjoyments I get from Magic is playing some absurd sideboard card that nobody is ready for and putting the rest of the game in cruise control. After looking over Harlan’s list and speaking with him. There’s always a good feeling attached to a deck you have been championing making its way to the number one spot, makes you feel like you are doing things right. Many of the games come down to who can stick one and start spinning artifacts into card advantage so keep that in mind, you wanna max out on the answers.
