Today I present almost 5,000 words on my favorite brew of all time; the build, mulligans, sideboarding, etc. Ikoria and the Amonkhet block come together for a fast, fun, competitive, and inexpensive Pioneer deck. The full list can be had for $120 and if you own the Boros manabase it is only $35. Better yet, you will be a few dollars away from having a competent Standard deck as well.
Gyruda has picked up steam in Standard and Legacy but it has flown under the radar in Pioneer. Today I want to share the build that I have been working on. What we have is a one-card combo that can end the game on Turn 4. I will share my current build, the intricacies of the combo, a mulligan guide, a sideboard guide, and the best cards to beat it.
You could be lazy and just copy someone else's list. That will not help you to pilot the deck effectively though; that is what this article is for. Today we will go in-depth on mulligans with supporting statistics as well as typical play patterns to follow in order to succeed.
Mono-Red Aggro decks are a beloved guilty pleasure of mine. There is something heart warming about haste creatures and burn spells. Contrary to popular belief, the Faithless Looting ban has not even come close to putting this fire out. Today I will go over the recipe for deep-fried opponents; the recipe for Mono-Red Prowess.
Yesterday we covered the recipe and reasoning behind the optimal Modern Bogles build. But anybody can just copy down a decklist and roll with it. Today we will calculate how the London mulligan has affected the deck, the strategy to apply to abuse it, as well as the common play patterns to follow in order to succeed with the deck.
It has been six months since my original Bogles guide and we are in need of an update. The format has slowed back down and is ripe for some hexproof beats. Today I will go over how to build the perfect Modern Bogles deck.
8 Whack is cheap, effective, and an absolute blast to play but it can be surprisingly difficult to play optimally. Today I will cover mulligan decisions, optimal play patterns, and sideboarding with this explosive archetype.
I am of the opinion that 8 Whack Goblins is the most underrated deck in the Modern format. It is one of those decks that can generate near-unbeatable hands which sets a floor on their losing matchup percentages. Today I will go over how to build your own 8 Whack and at under $200 USD it is very viable relative to the price point.
I have been playing this archetype from its inception and I have come to embrace the salt. Bogles is an absolute blast to play and when the format is ripe for it, there is no easier way to win a tournament. Today I will go over how to build the deck, how to mulligan with it, and the play patterns to follow in order to succeed with it.
We are back with an updated list and massive guide. We will cover the basic gameplan, the current build, and how to sideboard against the top decks in the format. If you are interested in picking up Mono-Red in Modern this should be your first stop.
