Welcome to another Modern Monday!

As you know, with our new format we’ll be streaming this week’s matches live on my Twitch channel at around 2 pm PDT (so be sure to follow or subscribe to know when we go live).

If you happen to miss those or otherwise aren’t available for that, worry not! They’ll be posted here tomorrow morning to watch in their full glory along with a write up of the deck!

The deck we’re taking a look at today is a little more straight forward than our usual Modern Monday fare. It’s black and green and pretty simple. It’s creatures, and disruption, and removal. Oh, and lands. The deck was played to a 5-0 finish in a league by Magic Online user ManuGodineau. Take a look.

4 Dark Confidant
4 Scavenging Ooze
4 Tarmogoyf
4 Vampire Nighthawk

4 Abrupt Decay
2 Dismember
4 Inquisition of Kozilek
4 Liliana of the Veil
2 Maelstrom Pulse
4 Thoughtseize

2 Forest
2 Ghost Quarter
4 Hissing Quagmire
4 Marsh Flats
4 Overgrown Tomb
2 Swamp
2 Twilight Mire
4 Verdant Catacombs

4 Disfigure
2 Dismember
4 Fulminator Mage
2 Ghost Quarter
3 Nihil Spellbomb

Nothing too fancy here; just an efficient two-color midrange deck. Can Tarmogoyfs and Vampire Nighthawks(!) get the job done? I’m looking forward to finding out, especially with the new addition of Hissing Quagmire! (Giggity.)

Like I said, the matches themselves will be livestreamed on my Twitch channel or in the window below. If you miss them, make sure to check back tomorrow for an article with my analysis of the deck and the videos that you can watch at your convenience!

Thanks for reading and enjoy the show!
