Good ol' Rock. Nothin' beats Rock.
A little over a year ago Randy Buehler hosted a Team Modern Super League and invited the Wizards of the Coast Play Design team to join. The cast members included Melissa DeTora, Paul Cheon, Donald Smith, and Andrew Brown. Great players, but mostly Standard-focused on their day-to-day duties as a Play Designer. However, another three members of the squad did play a lot of Modern. Those people were Michael Majors, Dan Musser, and me. A then-secret project was in the works, now known as Modern Horizons, that we three did a large part to develop. That meant jamming a lot of Modern on a daily basis.
A deck as fair as the pure dark-green driven snow.
The deck was similar to the Jund decks at the time. Instead of Bloodbraid Elf, Lightning Bolt, Terminate, and Kolaghan's Command, we have a more consistent manabase that can utilize Field of Ruin. Tireless Tracker was our Bloodbraid Elf. The Clues fueled escalated Collected Brutality and keeping ahead with Liliana of the Veil.
The sideboard had a couple of plans. Back to Nature was solely against Selesnya Hexproof (affectionately known as Bogles.) The dual Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets combined with the Slaughter Pact to often get a Zombie token immediately. There wasn't much Tron to be expected, so just Fulminator Mages were enough to get by.
For this past weekend, Gerry Thompson approved of Golgari Midrange as a solution to the Dredge, Izzet Phoenix, and Burn decks that were to be expected at SCG Regionals. I was pleased to see many of the same elements between his suggestion and "Golgari Traction" from a year ago.
We had a great record with Golgari Midrange a year ago, although I haven't played any with the deck since. If Gerry says it's what he'd play, it's worth looking into, especially if it's a touch under the radar. I ended up taking some elements from Gerry's suggested list and combining them with what I was used to and liked from a year ago, also while taking into account what other people have been doing well online with to 5-0 Magic Online Leagues.
