Modern Storm for SCG Columbus

LIST

modern storm 1-4-19

CHANGES

In the main deck Ive made a single change in that the third Electromancer has been cut to put the second Remand back in. This is mainly due to the slowing down of the format by the resurgence of Shadow and control deck and decline of Spirits and Humans. Getting flooded on bears is a way to lose many of the slower matchups so going back down to 6 has been great. Also, the addition of the Remand over a piece of creature interaction was chosen due to its flexibility against slower matchups and strength against KCI.

In the Sideboard there is also a single change in that the Gigadrowse has been cut for a Negate.  The Gigadrowse hasn’t been bad but it has only been performing in the control matchups and I would like something less narrow. I used to bring the Gigadrowse against Spirits but have been leaning more on Empty the Warrens.  This lead to Negate since I wanted a counter spell for combo, Prison in addition to Spell Pierce while also giving something to bring in against control. Plus this gives us some percentage points against big mana decks too.
