Five Quick Questions with Brian Braun-Duin
What deck are you playing in the GP and why?
Melira Pod and I’m playing it because it has good matchups against a lot of random decks and good matchups vs. creature decks. Against combo, it is pretty good post-board with Thoughtseize and Sin Collector.
What is the best fair and best unfair deck in Modern?
I would say the best fair deck is Melira Pod and the best unfair deck is also Melira Pod.
Has the results of the Pro Tour affected your deck choice or card choices for Grand Prix Richmond?
Three of my losses at the PT were to U/W/R and because of its popularity before the PT and now even more so after the PT, I am main-decking Thrun, the Last Troll.
What do you like most about Modern?
I like that there is no clear, defined best deck. You can do well with any good deck as long as you are familiar with it.
How much Modern do you play?
Not a whole lot, but I do play some online.
