Tarmogoyf: The Downfall
By HansD (2018-10-16)
Modern is chock full of iconic spells, but Tarmogoyf has been a mainstay in the format for as long as it has been around. If anything, Tarmogoyf symbolizes the "old" Modern – the era of Birthing Pod, Splinter Twin, and Deathrite Shaman. As those decks have faded off into the sunset of the ban list, Tarmogoyf has been left as a member of the old guard, watching the metagame around it revolve and slowly leave it behind. Today, I want to take a look at what made Tarmogoyf so powerful, how it lost its power, and where it might be headed.
