Modern

Article_PictureI spend quite a bit of time thinking about Standard and building Standard decks. I didn’t used to play a lot of Standard, but I’ve taken to hitting FNM regularly for the last year or two, and with some investment in cards I’ve been able to consistently put up 3-1 and 2-2 finishes with my own brews. Turns out I like a format with a bit of churn, and I was helped by a drive to open packs during Kahns block, trying to open fetchlands, as well as BFZ block, where I just wanted to get my hands on as many full-art basic lands as possible. As I exhaust my collection of old decks that I have lying around or in my head, I’ll probably be posting more Standard lists. I’m sure I’ll be tackling Hedron Alignment at some point, and Madness is a mechanic that is very exciting to see back in Standard.

But there comes a time when you just want to win. Sure, I could keep up with competitive Standard, but the churn of the format means that even if I always have the best deck, I might not always get in the practice with it to really excel. For example, I had a Rally the Ancestors deck for a while and did quite well at FNM with it. I never ever played a perfect game with that deck.

Which is why I like Modern.
