MTGO PPTQ : 4-1 with Modern Soul Sisters

With the rise in Grixis Delver and Burn, Soul Sisters is once again positioned favorably in the current meta. I recorded all of the games and posted them here on my youtube channel:

For those of you just interested in the report, here is a brief overview:

Match 1: Abzan Midrange 2-0
Tarmogoyf is a joke for soul sisters, all of your critters will eventually start outclassing Goyf and even Siege Rhino. Lingering Souls isn’t that good either. Auriok Champion can really stabilize the game (yes Soul Sisters plays the midrange route and eventually runs over abzan). Golgari Charm and well-timed abrupt decays are really the only way Abzan wins this matchup. My opponent accused me of getting lucky, but really, these were pretty average hands for soul sisters.

Match 2 vs Suicide Shadow 2-1.
I was surprised to see this matchup. It was a lot more stressful than I thought it would be as Auriok Champion and the other sisters / tokens can’t chump trample damage. I won game 1 pretty easily, my opponent couldn’t find his pieces, game 2 I got demolished by triple Death’s Shadow, and game 3 my opponent whiffed a lot on his cantrips.

Match 3: Grixis Delver 1-2:
Game 1 Auriok Champion stole the game. Game 2 the card advantage of delver really shined here and I got beat down by a turn 2 Angler. Game 3 I might have misplayed a bit here but it really came down to getting stuck on two lands and not pressuring my opponent enough. Again the card advantage and speed of Grixis Delver is REAL.

Match 4: Boros Burn 2-0.
Poor burn. It literally doesn’t have a prayer vs soul sisters. Only hope is to land 3+ skullcracks in a game at the right time.

Match 5: REVENGE on Grixis Delver 2-0.
Landed turn 2 Auriok Champions both games. That is the key.

Interesting side note, I ended up 2nd out of 44. My opponents finished with a combined score of 20-5 (5-0, 4-1, 4-1, 4-1, 3-2), so I lost to the overall winner. I really wish this would have gone to a top 8 as it would likely just be a bunch of repeat matches with 2 grixis delvers in the mix.

Thanks for reading and I am more than open to critique and suggestions!
