The Future of Dark Confidant and Modern JundBy HansD (2019-07-25)
Midrange decks are built with the metagame in mind and are thus highly customizable. Regardless, even the most customizable of these decks still play core cards that are integral to the deck’s gameplan. Very rarely, in a non-rotating format such as Modern, does a new card come along that displaces the current best-in-slot card for a midrange deck. With the printing of Wrenn and Six in Modern Horizons, I believe that Dark Confidant has found himself as the odd man out after years of being a Jund mainstay.
M20 Cards That Could Make Their Way into ModernBy HansD (2019-07-11)
A new set? Already? Wizards of the Coast have been cranking new sets out at a lightning pace, and with those new sets comes new toys for Modern players to use. Hans picks four cards from M20 that he thinks will find homes in Modern decks!
Taking a Second Look at Modern JundBy HansD (2019-06-25)
Modern has changed in the five years I’ve been playing and following it, and some decks that used to be on top of the dogpile have found themselves kicked off their perch. As Modern has become more powerful, aggressive, and linear, many of the fair, interactive decks that reigned supreme have gone the way of the dinosaur. Jund is one of these decks that has been pushed out more and more by the changes in the metagame, but Modern Horizons has brought along a good number of new toys that warrant giving this battered archetype a second chance.
