Jund is, as always, well positioned. It has almost even matchups against most of the field and is pretty hard to fight against.
Eggs is pretty good, but is soft to decks like Faeries and Angel Control. The latter is seeing some play, where as the former is seeing little play. This deck is really a meta call imo.
RUG Delver has fallen out of favor, but it's still powerful.
the rest is a toss up between Affinity (again meta dependent) and Angel Control (meta deck)
I'd probably want to be playing Jund or something that can beat jund easily out of the sideboard that doesn't fold to Eggs.
but if you're meta is underdeveloped, Eggs would be incredibly fun.
take this all with a grain of salt, i don't play modern online and only play at the local level in a pretty underdeveloped meta.

Scapeshift has been wrecking face in bigger events and through my local meta.
Jund is nasty, and very hard to play around.

I have had a great deal of success with Tempered Steel tempo, and zoo before the nactl banhammer. Scapeshift has won me two tournaments since the lift, (out of three I've played with it).

@Yanni, I have no problem doing some of these primers. You know most of the modern decks I know inside and out, so if you'd like, just assign me one and I'll go from there.

pick whichever ones you want and just post them. I'd just like to get the modern forum up and running.


If someone could C/P the Twin primer I wrote for MTGS, that would be awesome.

edit: anyone can write a primer, just post it and I'll sticky it for you. don't wait for my approval to do stuff, just do it. This is a community built by you after all :)

I'd love to do the scapeshift-valakut primer, and it's variant builds.

I'll copypasta the quote and email it to you, regarding your old primer.
Where is the command list on the site?

I'll try to do a primer for Jund next week. As soon as I can test the newest variant with white and Ajani, I can even expand that.
