Tyoccial Bone to Ash is not standard legal; I'm assuming its a joke of some sort that's above my head, lol.

Adamram1985 There are multiple wincons in the deck, but while Board the Weatherlight is a great card for combo seeking, it just isn't worth slotting over control. The meta consists of a bevy of decks that leave little to zero openings for free casting of spells. Even the four card combo in this deck is a sacrifice many would consider outrageous or even outright bad. To boot, its not an instant, so I'm doing this during my main phase. We want card draw and card digging to happen at instant speed for a spell. I just can't run that risk of needing the mana during my main phase. When you should cast draw spells: End of opponent's turn. You can cycle Irrigated Farmland in this deck for card draw, and you can also do that with Memorial to Genius.

If you aren't running Dismiss, you might as well cut Bone to Ash. I'm not certain how strong Mizzium Mortars is. Maybe cut Act of Aggression?

Demonic Tutor and Jace, the Mind Sculptor aren't modern-legal. 5 Bone to Ash in the sideboard?

But I will not replace Bone to Ash since it is a counterspell that also draws a card. But I appreciate your input. :)

Bone to Ash maybe? 4 mana is a lot for a counterspell. You could always add some cheap card draw if needed, like Serum Visions.

I was gonna say Essence Backlash but that might come in handy if your meta plays a lot of big creatures.

Hi, remember me? I've got some thoughts about what you said:

1.) You said that the format would complicate gameplay, then turned around and said that there would be less interactions, that literally doesn't make any sense.

2.) You also seem to have a problem with the removal of the so called "best cards", by this you probably mean Gitaxian Probe, Thoughtseize, Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Lightning Bolt, etc... but the thing is, some people find those cards to be boring and annoying because everyone is using them or trying to get them.

3.) With the "problem" with target removal being replaced with board wipe, so what? When both players are being put at an equal point with practically only one spell per turn, any reasonable person wouldn't wait around for a large amount of 4 drop (or higher) creatures to be on the enemies side of the field, and even if they did, like you said there aren't many that dont destroy your stuff as well, but that would just make the board equal again.And it's good to know you say stuff without looking anything up because there are plenty of target removal:14 enchantment removal, 51 land removal, 56 artifact removal, and 102 creature removal spells that would be allowed in this format.

4.) Yes, it may get rid of some counters, but like I said before, part of this format is to remove the cards people are bored, tired, and annoyed of seeing. Even at that there are still 56 counter spells, some of which are equal, if not better than a removed counter. (Such as Bone to Ash rather than Negate.With that said those fears of black and combo decks running a muck is invalid.

5.) Please name one combo deck within the limits of the formats rules that you would be able to effectively use. And if you really think it would be that bad, look at the current modern or upcoming standard.

6.) The most clear of them all is that you missed the biggest point of this, it's to have FUN. You know, the thing games like magic are made for. The first time I answered your questions was out of the fact that you genuinely asked, but at this point you were just arguing about how you didn't like it. This time I answered because I can't stand magic players, or people, like you. Instead of trying to possibly improve it, you just argue, saying that it's wrong, rubbing salt in the wound when you don't even have the facts to back yourself up.
