Hey guys! Welcome to Episode 4 of our Modern Nexus Video Series, where we pick a sweet list and run it through some matches on Magic Online. This week we have our very own Retreat to Coralhelm/Knight of the Reliquary combo deck; Knightfall!
We talked about this list and gave a walkthrough and some strategy in my article last week, so check that out if you missed it! Now that we’ve done our homework, let’s get to the videos!
So, we didn’t get the results I was hoping for, but I think there is a lot we can take from these videos. First, Knightfall is the real deal, and I think we’ve proven it can hang with pretty much any deck in the format. Both of our match losses were pretty close and could have gone either way, it’s just unfortunate that two of our matches broke our opponent’s way. I think it’s important to keep in mind that we are only playing a 3 game set, rather than looking at the results to determine if a deck is “good enough” we should instead be focusing on how it plays and how it’s positioned in the format. Now, if we’re still 33% after a 10 game set we know something needs to change.
I plan on playing with this deck a lot more, as it’s powerful, customizable, and a blast to play, If you’ve been working on this deck let me know in the comments any thoughts/opinions you have, and send your lists my way. I think Steppe Lynx is a good fit, but I could also see moving another direction and using those slots for something else.
