Baffling End Discussion
4 months ago
I was looking around, and I found Dowsing Dagger Flip. It gives the opponent some tokens that are absolutely harmless, along with the possibility of turning into a crazy powerful land, which might give you the ability to use all the cards you draw.
And I saw Baffling End which might be some permanent removal that you'd find more palatable, because it gives the opponent a creature. And, as long as we're on the subject of "removal that gives opponent creatures", Pongify , Rapid Hybridization and from Modern Horizons Generous Gift are other options.

OK - very janky, but great fun. I just had to get in on the discussion here.
If you are going to play Fountain, why not Ajani's Pridemate for an extra win-con?
I really feel the need for at least 9 spell counters in the deck.
All of the above changes rather cut down on the number of search cards that you can fit in, but so what? they will only get you to your win-con 1 or 2 turns earlier at best. I would go with Shimmer of Possibility as the only search card.
That leaves Sorcerer's Wand , which creates your endless loop. We really need to concentrate on protecting the wand - hence the added counter-spells.

Zombies + exile based removal. Kaya is even a Mono Blue Tempo regulator just on her own.

Have you considered stuff like Legion Lieutenant or Radiant Destiny? You have very few early drops in the deck and a ton of 4/5-drops, Vanquisher's Banner is expensive and doesn't work very well with tokens. If your plan is to go wide, you might want to fully commit to that. Going 4x Queen's Commission, Dusk Legion Zealot(or Martyr of Dusk) and use Skymarcher Aspirant as your 1-drop for the early ascend plus an evasive 2/1 body might be the way to go. I just feel you're going in multiple directions with the list, going Vicious Conquistador -> Queen's Commission -> Ritual of Soot doesn't look like a good idea. Maybe try Golden Demise if you want a sweeper main deck that's a complete blowout with your early ascend. Golden Demise acts like a more versatile Pride of Conquerors if you're playing black. Also, enchantment based removal becomes better than things like Murder with that plan. Baffling End and Conclave Tribunal will help you towards ascend while dealing with your opp stuff, Conclave Tribunal especially to make use of your sorcery speed tokens, going turn 4/5 Call to the Feast into 0/1 mana Conclave Tribunal seems pretty good.

I feel bugler is too slow/low impact here. Would swap out for Mist-Cloaked Herald for more evasive attackers or Dauntless Bodyguard for more protection on your aura-bearers. You'll be attacking every turn so Chart a Course is better than Sift. Baffling End is better than Luminous Bonds or Waterknot here and I don't think you need that much creature removal since you have Settle the Wreckage. Throwing in some counterspells in place of those could help. Lastly, with all the cheap creatures and auras, you will Ascend quickly so Pride of Conquerors is a great finisher.

why Wouldn’t you want kill spells in a control deck. I’m very confused.
Baffling End, Isolate, and Shore Keeper? These are not cards control ever wants to play. Baffling End is playable I guess as a one or 2 of in the sideboard (for mono white or Boros Aggro), but the other two are completely and utterly not playable.

Lightning Strike, Shock, Lava Coil, and Shivan Fire aren’t needed and frankly I don’t get why anyone would want these in a Control deck. If you really must play a 3rd color black has better options, but anyway. These all can be replaced with bounce spells such as Blink of an Eye, more counterspells and/or if not already in the deck, Opt. As for more cheap removal, There is Baffling End to get rid of more early plays and some decks may be able to make Isolate work for any pesky one drops. Also a great early blocker is Shore Keeper it can keep early Aggro decks at bay for a time if it is not removed immediately and can generate card advantage late game. Thoughtbound Phantasm could also work if running lots of surveil.
