Modern is such treasure trove of variety, and is constantly on the move, that it's hardly ever possible to say what the top decks are at any given moment. We decided to focus on the moving parts of the puzzle, and asked some notable experts which Modern decks they considered to be the most overrated right now …

Nicolas Crepelle, MKMS Rome Legacy champion: “Humans is a good deck, but it is overrated for now. Black-Red Hollow One is very overrated.”

Arne Huschenbeth, Standard champion of MKMS Hamburg 2017 and winner of GP Rimini 2016: “Jund.”

Thoralf “Toffel” Severin, veteran of two MKM Series Top 8s and three GP Top 8s: “Jund.”

Philipp Krieger, WMC semifinalist and veteran of three MKM Series Top 8s: “Humans, Hollow One, and Tron.”

Andreas Müller, Grand Prix and MKM Series champion: “I feel like Jund is the most overrated deck in Modern right now. Bloodbraid Elf does not line up very well versus the current metagame. There are nearly no Jace decks. The linear creature decks llike Hollow One, Humans, Burn, and Affinity all have a solid plan against Black-Green-X. If you want to play a grindy deck in Modern right now, I would go for Jeskai Control with Teferi, Hero of Dominaria or for Mardu Pyromancer.”

Felix Bolland, second in the race for the 2018 MKMS Power 8:Hollow One—I think the deck's power is based too much on random effects. The deck is strong and results don't lie, but in my eyes it is just another Dredge'esque pile.”

Nicklas Krull, veteran of four MKM Series Top 8s: “White-Blue Control and Green-X Tron.”

Thorben Sieksmeyer, veteran of two MKM Series Top 8s: “Jund. Even with the unbanning of Bloodbraid Elf it still lacks some power. Humans is just the better version of it at the moment. It has a fast clock and well-positioned disruption, so basically everything a Jund player could wish for.”

Hans Joachim Hoeh, Ph.D., quarterfinlist Pro Tour New Orleans 2003: “Humans has unsurprisingly been the most successful Modern deck recently, combining a fast clock with very disruptive elements, similar to Death and Taxes in Legacy. Despite already being the most played deck, some would argue that it is still not played enough considering its top status. The deck isn't negatively affected by the new sideboard tech Damping Sphere, but can even use it to improve the matchups against unfair strategies like Tron and Storm. Therefore, we might see the deck accumulating even more fans in the near future, and rightfully so, but don't forget that Affinity always claims the title in the end at the MKM Series.”
