It’s hard to argue that assembling Tron (one of each Urza’s piece) isn’t one of the most powerful things you could be doing in Modern. Not many decks have
the capability of hardcasting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, but Tron makes that a reality. We’ve seen U/W and G/R versions of Tron have success but not so much
lately. Perhaps it’s time to look at a different build?
In a recent Premier Event, Ixidorsdreams built a Mono-Black Control deck featuring the Tron pieces and finished 14th. The finish isn’t awe-inspiring, but
the deck is. Rather than focusing on jamming Karn Liberated or Wurmcoil Engine on turn 3, Ixidorsdreams is trying to control the game with cards like
Damnation, draw cards with Ichor Wellspring and Trading Post, and eventually finish up with Emrakul, Ulamog, or Karn.
Most people assume that Tron decks need to be explosive to win, but much like U/W Tron, this deck simply uses Tron to assemble an unbeatable late game.
Ixidorsdreams might not have had the best tournament, but I see some potential here. What can we do to make this strategy more consistent and powerful?
