Mattcaster Mage - Modern Tribal Zoo, A Tournament Report

by Matt Jones

I’ve played a number of decks since Modern came to be. Here’s a list:
UB Reanimator
GR Aggro Burn
Jund
GW Bears
Melira Pod
Kiki Pod
and most recently Tribal Zoo.

Finding the right non-countermagic deck to play in Modern at any given time is difficult. GW Bears gets smashed by so many decks. A few Kitchen Finks can ruin your day if you choose Tribal Zoo or Gruul Aggro. The Birthing Pod decks can get steamrolled by Zoo or Gruul Aggro or be countered out of existence. It comes down to one’s match ups and one’s draws.

Here’s the decklist I went with.

Behind the Screen: Dealing with Death, Pt. 2

by Chris Wood

Last time, we took a look at Death in D&D, or more specifically, when Death runs rampant through your game. I talked about TPKs (total party killed) and I gave you some methods for giving your players a helping hand when they get in too deep. But as we all know, not every story has a happy ending. This week, we are going to talk about what happens when Death claims your players despite your best intentions (or non-intervention), and why letting your players die can be good for the game.
