MTG Goryo’s Vengeance Modern

In my previous article, I cover some informative metagame. As I am expected the release of Aether Revolt. Here are some aspects that are discussed in my article. It is like a short summary. Such as:

  • Dredge or the Infect is less popular. Meanwhile, UR Kiln Field and the Suicide Zoo will become the most popular. Due to the Gitaxian Probe or Golgari Grave-Troll.
  • Midrange decks will become famous in future just because of Fatal Push
  • Tron or the Scapeshift is considered as the big mana strategies. The Infect become the midrange deck because of famous and top-rated player.
  • Lantern Control and the Affinity will be popular because of Aether Revolt.

Suddenly, one archetype comes in my mind while thinking the potential Goryo’s Vengeance.  I am thinking about the deck but it has been quiet since the last year. Traditionally, the deck has a good matchup regarding the Abzanor Jund. However, the matchup comes in the strategies of the Tron or Scapeshift. These are fantastic because they are faster and also have a lack of disruptions. The Infect has the worst matchup that is less prominent nowadays.

Additionally, the main reason is the deck has the presence of the Dradge that enhances the graveyard. Circulating the format was decrease now.

Two Versions

Today, I am discussing the Grishoalbrand,Goryo’sVengeance or the traditional version.

Grishoalbrand becomes famous with the help of Legacy expert Bob Huang. Basically, it is utilizing WorldspineWurm with the Nourishing Shoal.  It specifically allows to draw the cards because of the Griselbrand combination. In the following draw, you are hoping with Goryo’s Vengeance as well as Borborygmos Enraged. Also, you can win the game while throwing the lands.


Here are some advantages are given below:

  • At the instant speed, the deck can easily win, and you don’t need ant combat step. Through this, you can easily remove the spells that are quite beneficial in a certain situation.
  • If you have more cards, then it is better to counterspells at fighting.
  • As compared to the traditional version, it is faster. In the early, the winning probability depends on the turn one. Usually, you can cast Nourishing Shoal and the Desperate Rituals that are helpful throughout the beach. It is included in one of the main factors of cheaper splice cost instead of the cost mana.


Here are some disadvantages are given below:

  • In the deck, there are most probably zero interactive. The packages of Nourishing Shoaltake in the era of so many flexible slots.
  • The deck relies on theGriselbrand, you cannot return especially when you take WorldspineWurm or Goryo’s Vengeance. Often, it means to win the game. Behind this, you totally connected through chain if you have enough activation of Griselbrand. For a game closer, you can find enough pieces.

Recently, the traditional version has been played for the purpose of success. Kentaro Yamamoto has been played for with the package of Nourishing Shoal. It is important to play correctly instead of EmrakulAeons Torn or Griselbrand.

This version has enough slot and more streamlined while interacting the deck for some form of play. Usually, the deck is helpful with Collective Brutality or the Lightning Bolt. The traditional version depends on the attacking with the creature to win. So, it is preferable to target the EmrakulAeons Torn in the most difficult situation. If you prefer the target, then you are enough close to winning.


If you noticed the decklist then you can find the existing version such as available in the Red, black or Grixis shell. These shells have a big mana base because of lots of basic lands. Due to the lack of requirements, then you lose the heavy requirements. The result shows that you can get the average profit that is helpful; for drawing off the Griselbrand.

Through this, you will get the opportunity for playing the Blood Moon. It becomes the key cards regarding big mana or midrange strategies. The Grixis versions include more mana base. Mostly, Serum Visions is a splash for dropping the card. However, the mana base, focus the shock lands or the fetch lands. Especially, the Serum Visions is great because of three consistent cards.
