In the first 24 hours we -- you all really -- collectively crushed TCGplayers records for comments and social media likes. And hey! We're just getting started.
I was pretty sure people would like this column but I was not prepared for the outpouring of interest out of the gate. I aspire to keep you similarly entertained for the duration. Thanks so much for the warm welcome.
Now -- down to business!
You sit down to a match of Modern.
Yes, we have Modern on the brain as we have the upcoming event in Amsterdam on the stack, but in this scenario [and because at the time of this writing we don't really have post- Wild Nacatl / post- Bitterblossom / post- Deathrite Shaman public decks yet] you have Innovated a Time Machine and are playing for Top 8 during the PTQs for Pro Tour Dragon's Maze.
You are of course super excited to be playing for the elimination rounds, and even more excited when you win the coin toss. Of course, you opt to play. And then...tragedy!
You settle on the following, luckily-playable, five-card hand.
Aside:I know last week's Make the Play Monday was all about playing your first land, but as the only card we can play with an untapped Island would likely be irrelevant on the opponent's first turn on the draw, I think we can generally agree on the Hallowed Fountain./end aside
