With Grand Prix Omaha coming up this weekend, I decided to try my hand at Jeskai Ascendancy. When I played against Josh Utter-Leyton and Tom Martell at Worlds, it felt like their deck was unbeatable, but it hasn't really taken over Modern the way I thought it might since then. Whether it's great or not, there's a good chance this weekend will be the last major tournament it's legal for, so I thought I'd take it for a spin while I had the chance.
The list I'm playing is very similar to their list from Worlds, except I've cut a Remand for a Flame Jab, which kills Delver of Secrets, Young Pyromancer, and mana accelerants while offering some insurance against stalling out with Jeskai Ascendancy. The sideboard I'm playing is very different as I've moved away from the Gifts Ungiven package entirely.
