10: Inspiration for Grand Prix Hartford
I was already considering playing Bring to Light Scapeshift at Grand Prix Hartford, hoping to have a good matchup against Five-Color Humans and B/R Hollow One while also dodging the rise in graveyard hate. CJ made some excellent updates to his Scapeshift list, including adding Relic of Progenitus into the main deck to help fight Hollow One strategies and cutting Remand for Izzet Charm.
The Remand swap is genius because of how the card is mostly dead against the big two strategies. You still want a tempo tool for fighting the other Modern decks, but Remand is the worst it's ever been. Izzet Charm is a positive swap in this metagame, even if it's a poor choice in a vacuum.
Once I have an idea, like cutting Remand for Izzet Charm in these combo control decks, I can incorporate that into every similar deck out there. Maybe U/R Through the Breach is better? Maybe U/R Madcap Experiment? Hell, maybe it's time to bring back Jeskai Nahiri.
