These are decks that we play on stream regularly because people like them, but they tend to have a few too many poor match ups in the format to be something I think will ever be a major player in Modern. They can be fun and powerful in the right meta game though.
An aggressive disruptive deck that looks to gain advantages with its various cards by milling cards into the opponent’s graveyard. Drown in the Loch is a key disruptive element, while Into the Story provides endless card advantage.
A bigger Tempo deck, Temur Flash looks to disrupt the opponent with cards like Rewind, while deploying threats like Nightpack Ambusher to close the game out. Magma Opus is powerful when discard to make a Treasure token, so Torrential Gearhulk can cast it ahead of schedule.
This is a combo control deck that is looking to keep the board in check using efficient removal like Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile. Our eventual combo is Nahiri, the Harbinger ticking up to eight and then ultimating to find Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Nahiri offers powerful flexibility in a deck like this. She enables us to filter through cards we draw that might not line up well against our opponent, while also serving as additional removal with her down tick.
This is a double toolbox deck that utilizes most of its sideboard for a Glittering Wish package, while containing a variety of bullets in the main deck as well to search up with Bring to Light. All of the non-sense is tied together thanks to a variety of cards that ramp mana out faster and various combo kills that involve Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.
This is an aggressive deck looking to play honest creatures on curve and attack until our opponent reaches zero. The vast amount of green mana symbols in our creature’s casting costs allow us to leverage the very powerful combat trick Aspect of Hydra to steal games.
