The Modern Bible of RG Tron Chapter Nine: Sample Videos

This week we will look at some sample videos with RG Tron. I have played more than 100 matches with the deck and filmed the majority of them. These are the most popular.

RG Tron vs Burn

This is a very early video with 3000+ views. It illustrates the difficult Tron matchup which we will discuss in detail in Chapter 27. It is one of the most even matchups and requires a lot of tricks to play correctly.

RG Tron vs Dredge
This videos has 2600+ views. I think it was the newness of the other deck that attracted all those views. It was one of the early takes on Golgari Grave-Troll. However, it clearly illustrates the power of maindeck Relic of Progenitus.

RG Tron vs Mono Blue Tron
This video has 2400+ views. It is from the Modern Noob exercise last year. I had no idea what I was doing but I think this video clearly illustrates why RG Tron is heavily favored against its mono blue cousin. RG Tron just has a much easier time finding Tron and disrupting Tron for the other deck. Karn Liberated is the key, as he is often.

RG Tron vs Skred Red
This video has 1900+ views. This video illustrates the weakness of RG Tron vs Rogue Combo Decks. You are well prepared to handle aggro and control decks but as soon as the opponent is going combo in any sense, you are at a big disadvantage. You have only limited ability to interact with your opponents combo and the sideboard is just too crowded to include anything for Rogue Combo.

Next week we will talk about Mulligans in one of the most important chapters of the series.

  1. Should have played Karn before combat, exiled the reckoner, then attacked koth with wurmcoil
