Saw this combo of Reality Acid

and Venser, the Sojourner

Modern on MTGO

Posted by Mr Z on Thursday, August 25th 2011 at 23:18

Modern is live on MTGO and so I just had to share some games with you. However before I do I just thought I'd let you know that I have been brewing. I have a dozen MTGO Modern decks now created in MTGO. You can see them all in the MTGO Decks section. You will also note that all of my Standard MTGO decks have been archived, thus giving me a clean slate to start brewing again once I get the urge.

Lightning Angel

Witness the awesome power of Lightning Angel as it crushes a horde of Zombies underfoot.


Watch as Sheoldred deals to an unsuspecting slithering pile of snakes.

Modern Goals

Posted by Mr Z on Tuesday, August 16th 2011 at 14:01

Looking at the new format, I have decided to lay out some goals to expore with the decks that I create for this format. I envision Having 5 Modern Decks to start with, gradually expanding to maybe 10 - 12 decks.

Lightning Angel

This one is already constructed. Just needs to be worked on and improved.

Blue/Black Control

My favorite colour combination. It's only fair to see what evil deck I can construct from many different blocks.

Samurai Pizza Cats

Bring back the Samurai from the Kamagawa Block, with a twist or two. There has to be a way to build WW with out beatdown.

Dragon Attack

As Dragon Attack is rotating out of standard in October it seems a solid idea to make this a Modern Deck. Sarkhan Vol
Sarkhan Vol
is one card that I think will be added to the new look deck.

Number Five is Alive

Place holder for a concept to be decided on.

Hearing the news that Modern is now an official format has got me pumped. I can't wait for it to be released on MTGO so I can start playing around with some deck concepts. I already have a couple underway - Bant Venser and Lightning Angel.

I must admit that my excitement was tempered with the banning of Jace, the Mind Sculptor
Jace, the Mind Sculptor
. I was looking forward to playing with him in this new format. I am happy that Stoneforge Mystic
Stoneforge Mystic
is gone - that baby is just too powerful. Still I can live with Jace being persona non grata in exchange for being able to play with all of the other fun cards.

Dragon Attack is another deck that I hope to convert to Modern. Of course it won't look anything like the current version, but it will get to play with Sarkhan Vol
Sarkhan Vol
. How cool is that?
