Horde of Notions #61 – Modern Optimus Primer

Play

Brought to you by FacetoFaceGames.com, Canada’s number 1 source for Magic singles and products!

 

This week, in preparation for GP Toronto and the upcoming PTQ season, HON tackles the archetypes in the Modern format.  Chris, Adena, Will, and Travis discuss what the best decks are, how they win, how to play them, and what to do to beat them. We also spend some time speculating about cards and decks that could come out of nowhere to surprise the meta.  Among the archetypes discussed:  Jund, Affinity, Storm, Tron, Eggs, and Infect.
