The F2F Tour events in 2023 have so far featured a level of player attendance that we have not seen in a previous year. 191 competitors battled in our Modern Open Qualifier while countless Commander pods were firing throughout the day.
When the dust settled, 2-time F2F Open Champion and senior producer for theScore esports, Keith Capstick, captured his 3rd trophy with Hammer. On his appearance on the latest First Strike podcast, he mentioned the key choices he made for his decklist compared to what’s being played out there.
According to him, other lists are messing around too much playing Spell Pierce and not enough 0-cost artifacts while his version increases the odds of having a dominating game state by turn 2.
Although he believes Haywire Mite is a great card in some matchups, the requirement to play Razorverge Thicket might prove to be too much, so for certain metagames, he says he would just play 11 Plains instead.
