A list of cards I think you could have in the sideboard:

Grafdigger's Cage
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
Thrun, the Last Troll
Sowing Salt
Ancient Grudge
Torpor Orb
Pithing Needle
Relic of Progenitus

I'd basically go with whatever combination of those is best suited to your meta.

For those following along, I have upon the numerous recommendations, decided to try out the Ancient Grudge s. I suspect that I won't find them incredibly useful except for a mirror match up. I also have decided that I want to use Mana Leak over Spell Pierce . Realistically, Spell Pierce would be more ideal for a control deck, but beyond the early game, it fizzles. I see Mana Leak making more of an impact later in a game, as well as in the early game.

I was also considering dropping one Thoughtcast in exchange for one Steelshaper's Gift . More often than not, while Thoughtcast gives me two cards for one spell, I find myself needing a specific card, and I think that's where Steelshaper's Gift would shine more. Well, that's all I have for now. Thanks to everyone for the support and the feedback.

@ killkong1211 Those are some solid suggestions that I have been kicking around already. I've decided to just swap it out and give them a go in the sideboard to see how they do. I was in the air about Ancient Grudge be decided that the flashback on 2 of them would help me hit 4 artifacts on the mirror, which is probably more than enough to tilt the tables in my favor.

@ Lordslyver66 Thanks for noticing the reference, and I appreciate the +1.

EldestDragonHighlander Ancient Grudge doesn't hit enchantments and for 1 more with all the mana I have, Im willing to pay that 1 more to get the card that hits both. Granted I believe in most cases Ancient Grudge is probably the better card.

In my experience I sometimes run into mill decks and Elixer is a good way to stop them entirely. Granted it is a pretty niche card in modern...and I suppose I wont have any issues with swapping Elixer out.

I did not even know about Destructive Revelry , definitely going in the deck!

Grafdigger's Cage is huge to stop storm decks which i see a good amount of (flashback, storm, snapcaster, etc).What would you take out for Scavenging Ooze if you did?

Can I ask what the Elixir of Immortality is for? I like naturalize, but I think you might be better suited with some number of Ancient Grudge in the board instead, given how great it is against affinity compared to Naturalize (though for affinity you also have access to Creeping Corrosion and Shatterstorm , and with your ramp it wouldn't be too hard to get there. All of these are good choices). You could then run something like Back to Nature for the GW enchantment decks. In any case, Naturalize is almost certainly worse than the new Destructive Revelry , so I would take it out regardless.

Grafdigger's Cage is a good card also, but in green you could be running Scavenging Ooze , which may even be good enough for main deck inclusion here seeing as you have 0 cards with 2cmc in the main (and yes I get that all of your 1 drops help you get to 3 the next turn, but eh I still don't like looking at the curve), and hey - bonus value with Doubling Season ! lol.

Just some random thoughts, GL with your deck!

perhaps Ancient Grudge would be a better artifact removal card? The overall cheapness of it plus flashback could really help. kill 2 artifacts for 3 mana. Not bad IMO.

Just saying, for affinity you want at least one Wear / Tear and like three Ancient Grudge .
Wear / Tear - Deals with enchantments (like Stony Silence and Rest in Peace which deal with parts of your deck)
Ancient Grudge - So I heard you like winning the mirror... Also deals with stray Pithing Needle 's or Ratchet Bomb 's that may pop out of sideboards in lower tier decks, just depending who you're versing.

This combo is a trap. At zero life or about to be? You insta-lose to:

Lightning Bolt
Path to Exile
Vapor Snag
Cryptic Command
Wear / Tear
Supreme Verdict
Hallowed Burial
Abrupt Decay
Echoing Truth
Doom Blade
Go for the Throat
Maelstrom Pulse
Lightning Helix
Ajani Vengeant
... and many more!

It would be much harder to think of a removal spell that sees play but can't break up the combo. I guess you'll win against the guy who sides in all of his Ancient Grudge and Shatterstorm ... Price
