Seems like a good matchup vs Fairies whereas Valakut isn't so much

unless there's a Vkut build that rapes Faeries of course

Ben Stark posted an article on CF last week about the Valakut build he used at Atlanta, he said Fae was not that difficult of a matchup. He boarded Fallouts, Stags, and Combusts from what I recall, might have had some Fallouts MB and not SB.

If I go to a ptq this weekend, this is what I'm running. I had limited options but this seems fun and it's honestly not that bad. Kitchen Finks is the only card in extended that hurts this that isn't in standard. I'm also going to try out adding fetch lands to the main and siding Ranger of Eos and maybe Path, which seems okay.

What's everybody playing lately? I'm having a real problem figuring out a deck to play that will not just suck. I would just play faeries but I just feel like killing myself due to boredom while playing it....

So I ended up x-3ing the ptq with Kuldotha, didn't expect much more than that. Two of my friends topped the ptq, though, including one who converted from ygo recently as well.

I can either go to a yugioh regional in Detroit or an extended ptq in Indy this weekend, if I go to Indy this is what I'll be running. I obv have to cut five cards in the main, just not sure what yet, I'll be testing throughout the week. It sure does feel good every time I drop a turn 2 Tezzeret lol.

Ya...Basically just draw well with Faeries every time and you don't lose. If you don't believe me, ask the winner of the Vancouver ptq...t2 bitterblossom every game. Either that, or win the pairing lottery.

The formats fine, it's just really dumb that it's main purpose was to be a non-rotating format with lower prices than legacy, but the format hasn't even had a major tournament yet and prices are already through the roof ($35 Vendilion Clique, etc.) and only going to get worse as the popularity increases.

Tbh, it's probably because Star City is mad that Modern was made so people don't have to overspend to play Legacy anymore, which directly effects their business, so they decided proper revenge would be to just manipulate the market on Modern prices, too.

To be fair, nearly every blue, non-combo Legacy deck is running multiple Cliques now.

Yeah, but that's been true for months, but Clique just now shot up in price. Also, shock lands jumped to $35 each, too. If we get a modern ptq format, they'll probably jump to 50+ each.

However, I guess it's not just Star City's fault this time. Grove of the Burnwillows jumped to $15-20 on ebay. Pretty ridic shit.
