Blighted Cataract Discussion

I'm with Catbeard, the land count seems pretty low. Maybe run some utility lands to offset the number of rocks, so even if you're flooding you don't necessarily hate drawing them, examples: Academy Ruins, Arch of Orazca, Arcane Lighthouse,Blighted Cataract, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls if you already own one, those are pricey, Command Beacon, Desolate Lighthouse, you get the idea. If I were you I'd take out Flusterstorm and maybe Spell Swindle for more versatile and easier to cast counterspell package like Arcane Denial and maybe Negate. It allows you to use your turn better without needing to hold up 5 mana, and also lets you counter more things than Flusterstorm. And stuff like Search for azcanta seems good, scrying in general. And if you're looking to do lots of cantripping with cheap artifacts, Mind's Desire, or Haze of Rage might be pretty sweet payoffs. and if you fill up your hand, maybe Stormbreath Dragon?

with Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Island so only you can benefit from it.

Also I wouldn't run Dread Statuary, Blighted Cataract, and/ or Zoetic Cavern; lands shouldn't be sac-ed by your commander because you are not ramping also if you do sac a land to get a "big boy" and it gets destroyed right off the bat then you're a creature and a land down...

Blue must have counter spells Arcane Denial, Disallow and Counterspell! Dream Fracture is one of those fyi.

Other things I would recommend Chasm Skulker, Consecrated Sphinx, Blightsteel Colossus, Kederekt Leviathan, and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

Additions; Gitaxian Probe, Preordain, Spell Pierce, Dispel, Swiftfoot Boots

Sea Gate Wreckage, Blighted Cataract, Akoum Refuge, Jwar Isle Refuge

Subtractions; Arcane Melee, Darksteel Ingot, Worn Powerstone, Underworld Connections, Insidious Will

Vivid Crag, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Creek, Opal Palace

I removed some of the ramp for some cheaper options. Kess, Dissident Mage needed some more protection so Swiftfoot Boots was necessary till I get the other boots. Land switches kinda water down the deck a little bit. (i need better land)

Worldly Tutor is a must here - most of your creatures are some form of engine for value accumulation. You may also want to look into Blighted Woodland and Blighted Cataract for some strong self-sacrificing lands.

Really, any halfway playable sac land like fetches, e-Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and Myriad Landscape seem quite strong here.

Unfortunately, Prophet of Distortion, Blighted Cataract, Adverse Conditions & Cryptic Cruiser are all uncommons only, and therefore not pauper legal.

Crumbling Vestige could replace the land, maybe. otherwise I would just go up to 4x Evolving Wilds because it combos so nicely with Brainstorm.

I would put those 3 Slip Through Spaces in place of the 3 Adverse Conditions.

Instead of the Prophet, maybe do +1 Sludge Crawler, +1 Salvage Drone and +1 Benthic Infiltrator?

Grasp of Darkness (was printed as a common previously) will be more effective than Tar Snare (and probably just as hard/easy to cast), but there's also Terror and Unsummon/Vapor Snag to consider.

Fist of all, Brainstorm isn't modern legal.

Second of all Eerie Interlude is really bad here. It's way too clunky.

Blighted Steppe Is not that good either. It'll net you like 2 life when cracked, and you can't track it throughout most of the game. Blighted Cataract is much better.

Arch of Orazca would make a good replacement for Blighted Cataract, Metalwork Colossus is probably pretty funky and there's some good jank you can do with it, Grand Architect, Soldevi Machinist, Vedalken Engineer and Renowned Weaponsmith could be cool too, and Workshop Assistant is more recursion if you needed it. Cool deck!
