@AzureShade:

Did you run up against:

Jund?

Abzan?

Naya Midrange - the Kibler build with Knight of the Reliquary, Domri Rade, Elspeth, Knight-Errant?

Nothing so realistic. Our FNMs are all drafts, but there are people there with spare "Modern Legal" decks to play around with between rounds. I was just counting turns to victory with, what were basically just slightly more interactive goldfish. None of them were realistically going to win against this thing. I just wanted to see how often a turn-two win would come up, and for me, it didn't come up as often as I would have hoped. Granted, my sample size was kind of small at about 10-sh games, but if you can't stick the landing in what would amount to a five-round tournament, how is this any different than any other "probably will have the game locked up by turn four" deck?

I'm still very curious what specific issues peoe are having that prevent Turn 2 wins? Are you fizzling on turn 2 a lot? Not seeing the turn 2 Paladin often enough? Not having 2 mana to cast Paladin?

I'm fizzling out more than anything.
