Modern | MBC - Infect Edition
If you’re looking for a list that screws up Control and Combo lists in Modern, feel free to give this list a try. Your primary win-con is through infect, and it’s not too hard to establish early control and disruption into a 2-turn clock. Liliana of the Veil gives you the options you need and will usually keep you ahead with all the disruption support.
Since you’re using Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, the Funeral Charms give you lots of reach allowing you to swamp walk over for a game ending blow. Not only that Liliana’s -3 ability just gets more potent.
The list can be expanded into a Green splash for Abrupt Decay/Maelstrom Pulses. But the real estate could be killer for the price.

Hey guys! I just wanted to get back into the swing of things. Let’s start the day with some Magic talk and one of my favorite formats. Modern!
One of the coolest things about Modern is that it’s not specifically dominated by Planeswalkers. The only PW that sees high play is Liliana of the Veil in Jund lists. Outside of Jund, there isn’t a whole lot of PW on competitive lists and they do end up being the support card, not a victory condition. You’ll usually see 1-ofs outside of Liliana.
This is a really stark contrast when you think about current Standard and Standard a few years back where Jace, The
Wallet Mind Sculptor was basically an all in one PW. Lock out, Card draw, Board control and a win condition!? It does get a bit frustrating when people do expect Jace level power when a new PW is printed, but for the sake of fun in the game, let’s hope that we never do!
To give you guys an idea, here are the most commonly played Planeswalkers in Modern. With this in mind, pick up your Lilianas when you CAN! Her price will almost double by next summer!
Hopefully this helps when you guys are trading for cards this weekend. Also, for those of you guys who aren’t really into control lists for Standard and prefer the old fashion method, there was a pretty awesome showing at GP Santiago by Luis Navas and his Rakdos deck. It’s pretty cheap to build, so feel free to check it out.
Til next time!

Yo. So hella late, but here, have my Otakon ‘13 costume. Liliana. This costume was a pain in the ass, and a lot of tears went into it, and I had a TON of help with parts. i’d like to revamp it sometimes soon, but I’m pretty happy with it. I didn’t buy fuckin’ any of this premade. That belt started as a strip of material, a chain, a sheet of foam, and glass weight-things. Yeah.
Liliana Cosplays, all day!

Sailor Moon CCG | Origins Award (2000) Best Trading Card Game
A slightly expanded photo gallery of some hard to find Sailor Moon cards, along with the super rare 9-card promo sets that were distributed in regular Sailor Moon trading cards. I’m fortunate enough to own every card from the Base set (160 cards) and the rarer Past and Future set (70 cards) and the chase promos from the regular trading cards.
For those that never heard of this, the game plays similarly like Pokemon, except you have to maintain your Scout zone and a Monster zone. You can build your decks to focus on a balance of both zones, or focus more on your Monsters and less on your Scouts, or vice versa. You can enhance either one with Items like Luna Ball or with characters from the TV show like Melvin or Artemis.
Instead of “evolving” like Pokemon, there is a level-up system with each Scout and each Monster. The most popular card to own similar to a Charizard is Neo-Queen Serenity.
The best part about the game is you get to play Rock-Paper-Scissors against your friends to resolve powerful effects, or Jan-Kan-Pon for the Anime purists out there. You might remember that Pokemon heavily uses coin flipping, so Sailor Moon has it’s own random mechanic. It really sets the tone of the games and reminding us why we love the quirky Anime to begin with.
Finding these cards might be an issue since it’s been a decade since they were last printed, and the first expansion boosters are next to impossible to find for a good price. I’m sure there’s conventions out there that do sell these at pretty good reasonable prices and I highly recommend you guys to try it out if you’ve played Pokemon before or if it’s your first collectable card game.
