I wonder if deck choice or preferred strategy relate to current satisfaction with the state of Modern. Let's do a little study.

Question 1: what is your deck of choice?

Question 2: what is your preferred strategy (aggro, midrange, combo, or control)?

Question 3: On a scale of 1-5, how satisfied are you with the current state of Modern?

Perhaps this is better measured in a poll but I'm not sure how to ask multiple questions. I can manually input answers into a GLM if people report here.

Q1: Red Eldrazi is currently my active modern deck. And building a ub control deck, the missing parts are already sent by scg.

Q2: aggro, midrange, aggro-control ---- all of those

Q3: hmm, I give it a 3.5 ---- enjoying the format right now.

1: Grixis Death's Shadow, but only really because it's the only reasonably playable Snap/Bolt deck (that ironically plays only 1-2 Snaps and 0-1 Bolts).
2: Some combination of Tempo/Control/Midrange. Not opposed to Combo elements, but hate 1-dimensional that do the same thing every time.
3: It's at an all time low for me. 1. Maybe less than that. The decks at the top are both orders of magnitude better than the Tier 2 and "Tier fun" decks, while simultaneously being mostly obnoxious to play against and producing awful gameplay experiences.

1: Most control decks. Most frequent lists are UW control/stoneblade, Grixis control, Faeries. Back in the day I used to play more Jeskai, and sometimes Esper. Basically if I can cast cryptic command, I am in!
2: Well... control
3: 4. I enjoy the format quite a bit. There is nothing that is really outstandingly broken nor one specific deck archetype that domiantes everything. Of course SBs are still important, but not even close to what they were in spring/summer. I think Oko will completely break at some point and will likely have to be banned, that is if Urza survives. Besides that Urza/Oko deck that might prove to be oppressive, everything else looks good.

1. RUG Delver
2. Tempo
3. Probably 4/5. I think Modern has been mostly tons of fun during my current stint, Winter 2017-present, with the exception of Hogaak summer.

1. URx Control
2. Control
3. 0. I quit a long time ago, and have absolutely zero desire to play Modern now that we have Pioneer.
