The Fro Knows – A Turn Two Kill

TheFroKnowsTurnTwoKillFinalTitleBar

Hey there, gang. Just as a warning, this week I’ll be going over yet another Modern brew. I know some of you may be getting tired of Modern, but with the Pro Tour two weeks ago and GP Richmond this weekend, I’m inspired. What can I say? Modern events are popping up everywhere right now, from GPTs to side events at PTQs, and I feel like brewing!

It’s why I play Dredge and Doomsday in Legacy. It’s why I built Scapeshift. I prefer to force my opponent to have to delay their game plan and fight on my terms. So whenever I hear the stirrings of a new combo deck, I immediately turn my attention to it and try to develop it to suit my borderline evil play style.

Tin Fins is a Legacy deck that, in its first incarnation, was a Reanimator-Storm deck that would Entomb Griselbrand into their graveyard, then bring it back with either Goryo’s Vengeance or Shallow Grave. It would proceed to draw their deck, cast all their zero and one mana spells for a massive Tendrils of Agony. These days the deck uses Griselbrand to draw a second Entomb to reanimate an Emrakul to attack for 22 as early as turn 1.
