I thought we could get a thread together and link all the tournaments for Modern that happen. I know there was a Modern side event at either the SCG or the TCG this weekend, so if someone can find the top 8 we could stick in here and being to build up the database

After a couple minutes on google, I found this.

The top 8 was the following:

W/U Caw Blade

W/U Tron Control

R/G/W Zoo

G/W/U Zoo

Domain Zoo

B/R/G Zoo

U/R/G Pyromancer Ascension

Domain Zoo


So we have 5 Zoo variants (1 Bant, 1 Jund, 1 Naya, 2 Domain), 1 Pyromancer Ascension (splashing green for Tarmogoyf, Engineered Explosives and Firespout), 1 Tron (featuring Gifts Ungiven) and 1 Caw Blade (featuring Sprites, Cliques and Commands).

Before they banned the format out of existence, I was a proud supporter of Modern.

Lol caw blade won without the help from visions, jace mind scuplter, and stoneforge Yea they def not unbanning those 3 now haha
Give it time, I dont think Caw blade will do to well in modern.

Wow, so I guess zoo will be one of the top decks after all.

What's interesting is that there is no twelve-post. Could it be that nobody played it?
In Legacy, Blue is the best color. Let's punish blue, in Modern. And they listened!
I like that caw blade deck. Vendilion clique targetting yourself after you fill hand with hawks looks like fun. I Like cryptic command, nice counters and strong creature land. Does this deck really need 3 swords though?

Thry need to unban mental misstep such bull!!!

Zoo STOMPS 12-post, I believe, solely on the basis of speed. If that was the top 8, I'm not surprised that post wasn't there.

I have to question whether or not that's good enough... Zoo is pretty resilient all around, and a few bolts isn't going to stop the deck. Not to mention that Proclamation of Rebirth is a real card.

Zoo doesn't stomp 12-Post. It stomps people who don't spend enough time learning how to play their deck. We've had about a week since the new banned list to build and test decks. Give it some time, and 12-Post should get better.

U/X Post seems strong enough, it merely needs time to develop the ideal version. U/W looks good, U/R looks good, U/G looks good, Mono-G looks good.

Zoo is VERY fast. 12-Post is not. Casting an Eldrazi on t5 is not going to be enough unless it's Emrakul and you've been able to play multiple removal spells already. And the Zoo player isn't smart enough to have any SB for you at all.

So yeah, I guess 12-post can beat bad Zoo players pretty easily.

Melira combo is the best deck I've seen around.

Stomped an amazing Zoo list 4-0.

I don't think the point of the 12-Post deck is going to be that. It'll be more like Urzatron from old extended, where you have answers, you just also have a nasty mana engine. In fact, because of Glimmerpost, its aggro matchup should be better than the old Urzatron decks, at least by a little bit. That incidental lifegain might buy just enough time to get something going. Also, it'll probably pack Engineered Explosives, maybe Chalice of the Void, and so on. 
So, yeah. 12-Post won't be winning anything if it becomes all about landing a giant spaghetti monster ASAP, but if it actually goes and plays control, I could see it doing very well.

Nice personal anecdote?

Combo decks that rely entirely on creatures tend to suck, especially when Zoo stops the combo with a single path to exile, bolt, or lightning helix.

Post decks beat zoo. Bad post decks dont'.

There was a modern side event at GB nats, but had very few players, the decks:

Boros
Boros
Big Zoo
UG 12 Post
RWU 12 Post
Pyro
D-Storm
Eggs
Treehouse
BUG Loam
Punishing Jund
Swans
EDIT: Merfolk

There were some other decks, I think another treehouse, but I'm not sure.

Winning deck was Punishing Jund, beating Boros in the final. Also, the eggs deck went 3-1 as well.



Also, guess what is legal in modern that I hit upon this weekend.... Lightning Angel. Beats clique in the air, can block zoo guys favourable whilst attacking, and is white for martyr of sands....

Just so you guys know, that Modern event at TCG only had 20 people. So the results don't mean much.

I wish this format got more attention. Probably because it reminds me so much of extended right before thopter depths took off. (Note: I liked this meta as well)

I will be sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for a blue control deck that piggybacks on goyf' to place well and then blow up. Some day my dream will come true T_T.
Of course I'm sure I've gone mad. The little man who crawled out of my eye was quite clear on this.

Nothing is stopping you from building NLB zoo really hasn't changed and neither have combo decks just update a few cards from newer sets add some fetch lands and come up with a sideboard plan for 12 post and you have a competitive deck.

After the first 8 dailies, 12 post is far and away the favorite, then Zoo, Affinity, RDW, Living End, and Melira/Reveillark decks

Because that tourney was 20 people, and the decklists were all terrible? The latest results from the MTGO dailies show that UW control is having a tough time against the field.

Ah aight. This deck did pretty good. U/W aggro control with swords just no caw.
Melira combo is the best deck I've seen around.

SO if we're going strictly by results I pulled a bunch from the MTGO Daily events, and some pretty clear splits can be made

Tier 1:
Twelve Post
Affinity
Zoo

Tier 1.5:

Storm Variants
Living End
Melira Lark
Boros
Splinter Twin
Merfolk (only 6 appearances so far, but 3 4-0's in the last 2 days shows the deck is gaining momentum)

Tier 2:

RDW
Elves
GB Rock
GB Death Cloud
RG Shamans
Pyromancer's Ascension

O_o what are people doing? doran rock i think is good enough for it to see play, but it is not.

also i'm laughing at folk not being tier one because it has about all of the tools it needs from legacy folk other then FoW and Daze....   i'd almost think spell pierce and mana leak would help alot too for those spots.

:P Lawls, I don't think CawBlade is the name for it once you remove Blade of the Bloodchief AND birds. Doesn't that make it "Faerie Sword" or something of that nature?


Also, Zoo is just a plain force in Modern (it's pretty much the same deck from OverExtended), it shouldn't be too dominating, but if it does, I bet you Tarmogoyf or Dark Confidant would be the first card to get banned xD

Doran Rock's problem is that it's a "play fair" deck, which means that it runs enough disruption to slow down the opponent, while playing cheap threats to gain incremental advantage. That's all fine and dandy, but it's not going to do a lot against something like a dedicated splinter twin deck that has 8 copies of 2 combo pieces. It also doesn't help against zoo when their creatures are just as good, on top of being extremely cheap to play with just-as-cheap removal spells.

Why would anyone play Tron when Vesuva-Post-Post is in the format? :S
Modern is actually much faster than Legacy, it's more comboriffic, because there isn't a cheap [see: free] counterspell like FoW or MM to block the combo/aggro shenenigans. Thus, Merfolk is a deck just too slow for the meta.

Best guess budget reasons or they're simply one of those people who refuse to play the best deck they could and instead play something like tron over post so they can make claims to being a unique sunflower.

Well, Tron lands enter the battlefield untapped, so I guess they can potentially be quicker, and it doesn't matter as much which one you open up with-Never mind. I can't do it. Yeah. There's no good reason to play Urzatron over 12-Post.
