At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a charge counter on Æther Vial.
: You may put a creature card with converted mana cost equal to the number of charge counters on Aether Vial from your hand into play.

Aether Vial Discussion

From what i see a lot of "Boogiemen" that people talk about...seem to have existing answers in the format already....
Storm decks would be answered in the same way that they are dealt with now. and if not then people will probably run more Chalice of the Void , Mindbreak Trap , Trinisphere and Simian Spirit Guide and others.
Deathrite Shaman is a creature at the end of the day... dies to removal and an be countered.
Golgari Grave-Troll .....there is just tons of graveyard hate in the format
Mental Misstep is a free Counterspell that shuts down turn one plays.... i just think that would be healthy for hypothetically unbanning other spells at the end of the day.
While i do agree that a Ban list is cleaner...I just wanna be an advocate for a restricted list for the cards that cant be dealt with with the Modern card pool.
there are a lot of powerful decks around today that are very very good but not unbeatable... just like unbanning Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Simian Spirit Guide recently it changed the landscape a bit but we didnt lose Modern over it.

Yeah the reason you don't see DnT in Modern is because there's not enough mana disruption like in Legacy. Field of Ruin was a big boost to Modern to be used with Ghost Quarter . However, there's still nothing compared to Wasteland and Rishadan Port , which are the main powerhouses used in combination with Aether Vial .
To get the same power out of Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin that you would out of Wasteland , you need Leonin Arbiter or similar effects. This doesn't allow you to start fucking with your opponent's mana on turn 1 or even turn 2, which is how DnT destroys people in Legacy.

Hi! Some ideas. Mana curve is low so you don't need 24 lands. 20-22 is enough. It depends on your budget but if you want to make your deck more reliable you should take a look at Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial . Your creatures need protection so Brave the Elements would be a nice idea. Path to Exile is your removal (4 copies strongly recommended). A couple of enchantments to boost your creatures: Honor of the Pure and Radiant Destiny . Creatures: 4x Hanweir Militia Captain Flip - transforms fast, grows fast, helps to transform Westvale Abbey Flip. Metallic Mimic - cheap and useful. Eldrazi Monument - finisher. Sideboard: Grafdigger's Cage , and Ashes of the Abhorrent , Rest in Peace , Relic of Progenitus (graveyard hate). Good luck!

Needs Master of the Pearl Trident , Silvergill Adept and Master of Waves . They are all really strong, and not running 4 of each of the former and 2-4 Master of Waves is stupid. Also some 1-drops would be beneficial, either Mistcaller s, Cursecatcher s or Benthic Biomancer s. Seafloor Oracle , Stonybrook Banneret and Streambed Aquitects are probably best left home.
Spreading Seas , you need it badly. It enables islandwalk and shuts off certain colours. Aether Vial is also essential, but if its out of your budget, you should do fine without it in casual environments. Some counterspells are also ran in Merfolk decks. Try Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , Deprive or Wizard's Retort .

I consider your deck as very thoughtful although I have different suggestions for it:
I would reduce the number of plains of 3. Add one extra Karakas because, well, this explains it: www.reddit.com/r/DeathAndTaxesMTG/comments/8xequ0/how_many_karakas_in_legacy_death_and_taxes_is_the/. I understand you are aware of the combo Karakas + Mangara of Corondor ... And then add 2 Cavern of Souls .
consider 3-4 Leonin Relic-Warder instead of Disenchant . For 3 reasons : theme reasons (Because you have already clerics/leonins in the deck ; you completely exile the artefact/enchantment, preventing the opponent to reuse them from the graveyard) ; and you may play it for free with the Aether Vial .

Hey Astro2, the Orim's Chant is not in the SB. It is in the MaybeBoard.
I have many different suggestions:
Hope that helps. :)
