« on: August 16, 2011, 11:44:15 AM »

I have been playing a ton of modern online and initially zoo was rocking then 12 post green was doing well. Currently blood moon seems to be the deck to beat. Super fun and lots of variance in deck lists within the archetypes at the moment. Sadly I don't have the collection to put any of these decks together in paper though so I'm relegated to online testing.

I assume Jund should be a good deck, though blood moon would wreck their manabase pretty good.

most of the jund decks are kind of a jund/zoo hybrid so to speak.  Tons of the "Zoo" decks are running BBE and the "Jund" decks are all runnign goyf and kavu from the "zoo" lists.  thats what I was messing around with till all the moon decks started destorying me.

Well that's mostly dumb then...The whole point of Jund was the card advantage you get from just about everything in your deck being a 2 for 1.  Goyf does sound awesome though.

The turn one or 2 blood moon is what makes it really brutal on the jund and zoo lists though. Heigharch helps alot but it's still an uphill battle.

as long as your manabase is solid against the bloodmoon.  Dragon storm have been running a transformative sideboard into bloodmoon . . .

Wouldn't Hivemind suck without Ancient Tomb or City of Traitors?

can play cloudpost/vesuva/glimmerpost for the sort of same effect...the format as a whole should be slower than Legacy so going off on turn 4 would be fine.
