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. This week we have Alex Bianchi's GP Pittsburgh winning Jeskai Twin list! While many Twin players chose the more traditional U/R Twin route over Grixis Twin in Pittsburgh, Alex branched out, riding Path to Exile and Restoration Angel all the way to victory. Does this deck have what it takes to supplant U/R, Grixis, and Temur for the coveted "best Twin deck" position? Let's find out!
All in all, I'm pretty happy with our results. Amulet Bloom seems like it should be a relatively even matchup, but after playing it I can see how it can go either way. Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt and Snapcaster Mage add up to a TON of removal, which seems awesome against all these creature decks running around. Against midrange, counterspells and sideboard bombs seems to be a great plan, and we could always just combo them (yeah, this deck does that too!). Thanks for watching guys, I'll see you next week!
