Reid Duke wasn’t sure he’d be playing Goyfs and Lilianas in Modern but here we are. Full playsets of each and in the top eight of Pro Tour Rivals of Ixalan.
It’s nice seeing some fairly recent cards pop up in Modern. Grim Flayers and Tireless Tracker for example. Even Liliana, the Last Hope as a one-of to be the fifth Liliana. There’s even a second Liliana, the Last Hope in the sideboard.
Fatal Push is also there because obviously. Fatal Push is going to affect every 60 card format for the rest of time except for maybe Vintage. That’s a fair number of newer cards affecting Modern.
I like the mainboard Nihil Spellbombs. Hurts Storm, opposing Tarmogoyf decks, and dredge. Modern has a good chunk of graveyard decks. Even if it’s just Lingering Souls. Nihil Spellbomb will never be completely useless.
