3 decks - same gameplan, different creatures. Very "nice" format without combo or control.

isn't the gameplan of every magic deck winning?

Control is just bad in Modern and Combo is unreliable, due to counters/discard.

for those who mimimimimi about the format:
by judas_bcn on 2012-06-23 15:04 CET
it look pretty incredible to me that in such a big format with such a big card pool only aggro or aggro control is viable. thinking in the card pool one could imagine that MBC, for example, could be an option, but the sad reality is that in practice 3 colors aggro always beats it. ban lands!!!
by struikje on 2012-06-23 16:30 CET
not only does 3 color agro beat MBC, UW tron control, RG tron, RDW, fish, aggro loam, BW tokens, splinter twin and probably more beat it...

i know that, but seriously, check the link you yourself copied, and check for the number of different decks that REPEAT a good result. any deck can do a single good result, but the only ones repeating consistently are tron, delver and jund. i only used MBC as an example of good decks in paper that have nothing to do in reality due to overpowered decks that can be done. i think the problem is the extensive manabase, not the cards by itself, but if anyone can throw together a deck with delver or BBE or KOTR, tarmo, dark confidant, etc... no one can be able to stop that, a deck with the very best creatures from 3 or 4 colors is a hard time. and that can be done thanks to 4 or 5 dual lands per color. that's a nonsense to me, as there are like 9 years of magic in this format and lots of strategies that could be done but are not as everything is summed to throw the excellent creatures you like the most and build an OK manabase easily without that much thought.

the problem is not shock lands, it is the fetch lands

combo is viable; just look at the mtgo dailies. UR storm puts up 3-1/4-0 results consistently, and Splinter Twin shows up frequently. Melira Pod also shows up still. There isn't a true control deck in the format, and midrange is pretty dominate, but UW and jund are the best of the midrange decks by a long shot.

judas_bcn: scroll back on modern masters from begining of this year, i made top 8 with totally unknow decks... GWr Glare and GW tokens... there is still option for breaking this format, only thing you need is to think about decks you are pbbly going to face and prepare you deck against them.
