Modern Horizons 2 has completely remodeled the Modern format—and I like the new look. There are new threats, new answers, and new engines that have given Modern a much-needed shakeup. Prowess decks are still good, but they're no longer the end-all be-all.

I hadn't played Modern seriously in a few years, so when diving back into the format I just played a little bit of everything. I pulled up the Challenge results and played several of the top decks to get a feel for things again, even netting a couple trophies in the process. I also brewed a few decks, but I'll save the best for last.

Here are the seven decks I've had the most fun with in MH2 Modern:

This deck literally could not exist without MH2. Almost half the deck was introduced to Modern with the last set release. I took the original shell from Kanister but added Grief as an additional way to abuse persist while still having hand disruption to clear the way.

Kanister's tweet has a helpful MS Paint infographic of how the combo works, but here's the rundown:

  1. Protean Hulk dies, fetching Karmic Guide and Viscera Seer.
  2. Karmic Guide reanimates Protean Hulk, Viscera Seer sacrifices it.
  3. Protean Hulk fetches Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista. Sacrifice Ballista.
  4. Walking Ballista returns with a +1/+1 counter thanks to Mikaeus.
  5. Remove the counter to ping your opponent, then sacrifice Ballista. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until they die.

Archon of Cruelty and the sideboard bullets give you more immediate value from persist, and Footsteps of the Goryo is just the perfect spell to abuse Protean Hulk since it brings it back and then kills it for you.

While this deck is capable of turn-three kills and turn-one Grief shenanigans, it's unfortunately quite fragile. As fun as it is to combo off, it's equally as miserable to play against graveyard hate. There's not even really a good plan B because so many of your cards are dedicated to the graveyard. You can't really use Footsteps of the Goryo or Unmarked Grave in any other way.

Very fun deck, but I'd wait until the graveyard hate dies down some before trying it out.

Velomachus Lorehold

Color Identity:R,W

Market Price: $2.97

Flying, vigilance, haste
Whenever Velomachus Lorehold attacks, look at the top seven cards of your library. You may cast an instant or sorcery spell with mana value less than or equal to Velomachus Lorehold's power from among them without paying its mana cost. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Didn't this just get banned? Oh wait, that was in Historic.

Turns out when Velomachus Lorehold has access to twice as many Time Warp effects and Teferi, Time Raveler, it's really good. This deck only really got Prismatic Ending from MH2, but it's a very powerful and flexible removal spell. It allows you to clear out opposing copies of Teferi, Time Raveler while also cheaply answering aggressive threats.

My only complaint with this deck is how far the mana is stretched; RRRRWUG is a lot to ask for by turn four. Other than that the deck is quick, it has a lot of redundant effects, and it doesn't lean on the graveyard. It even has a strong matchup against the Asmo decks with plenty of answers for Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar herself and the ability to quickly close out the game.

If you like taking all the turns and playing a very Splinter Twin-esque gameplan, this is the deck for you.

I won't lie. This is the deck that made me update MTGO and play Modern again. Urza's Saga is a hell of a card, and no other deck abuses 1-mana and 0-mana artifacts the way Colossus Hammer decks do. These decks now have an absurd amount of consistency and have gained a really good backup plan thanks to Urza's Saga. Stony Silence isn't quite as lights out when you can just make a few 6/6s.

This can be a hard deck to play but it's very similar to Infect. Your goal is to set up, protect your threat, and kill your opponent in a one or two-turn window. You can play with a similar amount of patience and slowly build up an unbeatable hand thanks to Esper Sentinel and Giver of Runes taxing your opponent's interaction. This isn't a new deck so there's not much more to say, but it's always been a fun deck, and the additions from MH2 have pushed it into the top tier.

We all knew an Asmo deck was going to be on here. The engine of Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar and The Underworld Cookbook is very much my style, and Gerry Thompson's list takes the engine to the extreme with a full playset of Trail of Crumbs. Very little can beat you if you have your engine going, and Trail of Crumbs is a powerful card advantage engine that completely circumvents the graveyard.

While Izzet and Dimir versions of Asmo are popular right now because of cards like Urza, Lord High Artificer and Metallic Rebuke, I like the resiliency of Golgari. Trail of Crumbs allows you to play through a lot more hate instead of leaning into graveyard and artifact hate with Thought Monitor and Emry, Lurker of the Loch. Engineered Explosives, Crime // Punishment, and Shatterstorm are all things you can play through with Trail of Crumbs. People are getting really hateful right now, and I value the resiliency over raw power. If you want a full breakdown on this deck check out the Arena Decklists podcast dedicated to the deck:

Claudioh has literally Top 4'd a Modern Challenge all three weekends in a row with Yawgmoth Combo. Asmo decks are already weak to combo, but Yawgmoth, Thran Physician having protection from Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar herself is brutal. Very few decks in Modern right now are prepared to handle Yawgmoth Combo and many decks are loaded up on 1-toughness creatures like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Dragon's Rage Channeler, and Ignoble Hierarch. Graveyard hate is on the rise, but Yawgmoth Combo is capable of playing through hate and has a surprisingly passable aggro plan B.

This deck is a ton of fun to play and is already tuned and refined for the metagame. If you want a fun deck that's also a tournament killer right now, just play whatever Yawgmoth 75 Claudioh is streaming this week.

I missed aggro control. Delver is back and it's good. Dragon's Rage Channeler and Murktide Regent give you incredibly efficient flying clocks to complement Delver of Secrets, and Counterspell in Modern is a dream come true. Unholy Heat is an incredibly efficient removal spell that helps you take out bigger threats and planeswalkers while Subtlety rounds out the countermagic suite.

I saw this list, immediately had to give it a go, and trophy'd the league easily. I absolutely adore aggro control, and RUG Delver was one of my first competitive constructed decks. If you've spent the past few years desperately hoping for Delver to be good in Modern, now's your chance. 10/10 highly recommend.

Look, I may be biased because this is my deck, but Cat Factory is the most fun I've had playing Magic in a long, long time, and I'm not alone. Yuuki Ichikawa streamed a Modern Challenge with this deck and every time he had Academy Manufactor in play he had the same childlike glee I did making 123456789 tokens.

The combo itself is Cauldron Familiar + Academy Manufactor + Lonis, Cryptozoologist + Chatterfang, Squirrel General. Cauldron Familiar triggers Lonis, who makes a Treasure, a Clue, a Food, and a Squirrel thanks to Academy Manufactor and Chatterfang. Sac the Treasure to make black mana and sac the Squirrel to kill Cauldron Familiar with Chatterfang. Bring Cauldron Familiar back with the Food and do it all again.

You can also generate incredible amounts of resources with a copy or two of Academy Manufactor and grind the opponent to dust, but if you ever have multiple Academy Manufactor in play you can probably make enough mana and draw enough cards to win on the spot. I won't claim this deck is as good as Yawgmoth Combo, but it's hands down the most fun deck in Modern.

How do you sideboard a monstrosity like this? Well, sign up for my newsletter and you'll get exclusive content every week like sideboard guides and deck techs. I won't spam your inbox, you'll just get one email a week with exclusive content and early access to my articles a full day early.

Next week we pick up with Adventures in the Forgotten Realms previews, and I'm looking forward to seeing what we get from the D&D x MTG crossover. I wasn't super impressed with the Godzilla or Walking Dead cards, but from what little we've already seen of AFR I'm suuuper excited to see the full set.

See you next week!
