Rx Burn

I'm tempted to move back into using Atarka's Command after playing with a Nacatl version in paper locally. What does your Nacatl version look like? I'm trying Wild Nacatls for the first time tomorrow at the FNM, so I'm a bit interested. I'm running a version without Copperline Gorges, which is a bi...

I switched to playing Burn again for my latest Modern FNM, because I had some troubles with my Delver deck (probably my meta at the time). This is different enough from that so I could probably try it in our next Modern FNM (that's next week). I have no comments on the Abbots yet, but I do want to t...

I might have a third Scalding Tarn in the list, I can't remember right now. Anyway, that's all I have available red-wise so it'll have to do for now. 2x Lightning Helix are certainly an option, I'm not sure we have many other Burn players so it doesn't feel that necessary right now.

Of course. There's still quite a few 2CC spells you want to get rid of, but it looks like Spell Snare isn't that important at the moment. Anyway, I skipped the WMCQ (couldn't get anyone to share gas costs with, so I go to the Std one instead). Not a single Grixis Delver in the tournament, but 5 Grix...

Right, I'm having serious doubts about running Grixis Delver at next weekend's WMCQ. Which means, I'm looking at Burn again.

What lists would you run against a wide metagame (I can expect all the tier 1 decks in greater quantities, and the rest in lower).

Maybe the Grixis Control versions should have their own thread?

I'm no expert. But waiting to play Eidolon until your hand is empty is certainly wrong, almost always. It's better on the play than on the draw, so against some decks you might want to side out all of them or a few at least when on the draw. Playing it turn 2 on the play is something you often want ...
