I've seen Demannic doing pretty well in Modern Daily Events for a while now, but it took playing against him to actually see how powerful his deck was firsthand.
Ranger of Eos and Squadron Hawk provide a lot of card advantage, especially when you have Mistveil Plains to recur the Hawks. Meanwhile, things like Ghostly Prison and Martyr of Sands are making your job incredibly difficult. Eventually, the Martyr deck will be able to turn on Serra Ascendant, and that's when things start getting rough.
Combo is obviously a difficult matchup, but I like Demannic's chances against everything else. White has plenty of good sideboard options, which Demannic makes good use of. If Splinter Twin is the only combo deck in the field, I wouldn't mind sleeving this deck up.
