What’s up guys! Welcome back to my Modern Nexus Video Series, where we take a deck in the format and run it through some matches on Magic Online. Today we have B/W Tokens, a pretty unique deck that's been bouncing around the format for a while.
Back in my BFZ set review we discussed the possibility of a B/W resurgence with the help of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Can Gideon push this deck into Tier 1? Let's find out!

Finally, some good results! It's interesting that we did so well, because to be honest I was expecting a 1-2 or maybe possibly a 2-1. It's possible I have a small bias against this deck, as it's been around for so long and hasn't really done much, or we could actually have something here. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle; we got a little lucky, our opponents got a little unlucky, and we ran up against some good matchups. Tron seems difficult, as does fast combo if we can't find enough discard, and I think we still have trouble against dedicated token hate (though Lililana of the Veil and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar work to fix that).
Anyway, the deck was a ton of fun to play, and it felt good to be doing something unique (and who doesn't love putting three 2/2 vigilant fliers into play on turn three). If you have any thoughts/opinions/suggestions, feel free to let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading/watching and I'll see you next week!
