I love this color combination and the idea of playing Delver in Modern.

Have you considered Celestial Colonnade? Sometimes they finish grindy games.

I wonder how much counter magic you need with so many removal spells. Would you consider lowering your count of counter spells to include, say, 2 Supreme Verdict and 2 Anger of the Gods? Maybe the 2 leftover slots could be for Cryptic Command.

Since Monastery Swiftspear competes with Delver of Secrets at the 1-drop slot, would you consider running a 2 Goblin Dark-Dwellers and 2 Mantis Rider, instead?

Finally, depending on your meta, would you consider going down to 2 Blessed Alliance, 1 Celestial Purge, and 1 Dispel in the sideboard to include 1 Grafdigger's Cage, 1 Mindbreak Trap, and 2 Stony Silence? That might offer you passive effects that better fight Counters Combo, Dredge, and/or Affinity. Several Leyline of Sanctity are always worth considering, as well. The Abrade might be better as a Wear since you have a lot of main deck burn.

Yes, I get that it is a budget deck - I'm not sure why you say that playing Manabarbs and Stuffy Doll means you can't have a good curve. It doesn't. If you understand the concept of mana curve but still ignored it, then that says a lot, I guess.

Ok, as for specific suggestions, here they are:Moving 2 Pay No Heed to sideboard. It can come in against combo decks like Scapeshift.Moving 2 Phyrexian Unlife to sideboard. Should play it with Solemnity or not at all.Cut 1 Curse of Exhaustion and frankly, might move the other 1 to sideboard, because I'm not sure who you are trying to get with this. It's too slow for Storm, maybe it stops Snapcaster Mage tricks, but it's only an annoyance more than anything.Moved 1 Oblivion Ring to the sideboard.Cut 1 Pariah. This card doesn't really do anything without a Stuffy Doll out, plus more reasons later.Cut 4 Mesa Enchantress. You already play very few creatures. I suspect most opponents will have multiple removals in hand to deal with this before you can extract any card advantage from it. Now, the replacements.Adding 4 Heliod's Pilgrim. Guaranteed at least 1 card when you cast this creature. Is a legitimate tutor but restricted to Auras. Still, it makes your 1-ofs better and it enables us to go down 1 Curse and 1 Pariah too, since they are now searchable.Adding 1 Pentarch Ward. To support your Faith's Shields. But really, this is really for exile effects like Path to Exile on your Stuffy Doll.Added 2 Journey to Nowhere. RemovalAdded 4 Angelsong. Stalls the game, or if not, cycles.Added 1 Scrabbling Claws. Budget graveyard hate, also cycles.

Lands:Added 4 Battlefield Forge. Removed 1 Bojuka Bog - if you are playing this just for graveyard hate, I've replaced it with Claws, if you have Relic of Progenitus that's fine too.Removed 1 Reliquary Tower - I doubt that you will need its ability often.Kept the rest, but cut 1 Plains and 1 Mountain to make space.

Sideboard:Cut Boros Charm. I suspect you need this card mainly for the indestructible mode, and this saves only your enchantment pieces, since Doll is already indestructible. If that is the case, I suggest more Faith's Shield, or something not so mana intensive.Cut Karma - much too narrow. I have literally not seen this being played before. If you are afraid of black, play some Celestial Purge instead. Liliana of the Veil is one of the worst cards you can face.I would cut 2 Revoke Existence, if you want you can play more Disenchants. I'm not sure what indestructible artifact/enchantment (or anything that comes back from the graveyard?) you are worried about.

That brings your deck to 60 cards (did you realise you were originally playing with only 59 cards?) and a nicer curve and a lower budget.

Okay, so your sideboard is all over the place. xD My suggestions: go down to 1/2 Wear / Tear, since they are super blank against most decks. Give a one-of Celestial Purge a shot, as it hits everything relevant from Grixis Shadow and Lilianas and Bobs from BGx decks. I also suggest playing the 3rd and 4th Path in the board. 2x Disdainful Stroke for ETron and GTron, Valakut, Death's Shadow, etc., 1x Ceremonious Rejection for overlap with Affinity and Lantern. 1x Engineered Explosives could be good too.

Isochron Scepter would be super fun with Celestial Purge

Kjartan on I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid you can't do that.

JexInfinite That's illogical, dude.

Why would you only have 1 Celestial Purge? If there's not a huge chance of you drawing it, there's no reason in running it, right?

And you talk about Halo like it somehow has a bad matchup spread, but it really, really doesn't. It comes in against a lot of matchups, including some of the most played, and also some of your worst mathups.

Valakut, Bogles, Death's Shadow, Eldrazi Tron, Titan Bloom, Dredge, Storm, Tokens and reanimator.

I wouldn't make them tribal decks. I would just pick a "commander" that reflects that colors greatest strengths. You might at well make the format modern as well if its just going to be the set 5 decks.

Here are some Ideas for my commanders and their edicts.

W- Go wide Odric, Lunarch Marshal, or Odric, Master Tactician with some tiny fellows that all have cool keyword abilities and a few angels

W edicts: Luminesce, Celestial Purge, Surge of Righteousness

U- Control Talrand, Sky Summoner, or Baral, Chief of Compliance. Just load the deck with all instants and sorceries and a few sphinx as win cons

U edicts Encase in Ice, Flashfreeze

B- Midrange Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Yahenni, Undying Partisan. just play a bunch of mean and treacherous things and sprinkle with demons

B edicts: Deathmark, Talara's Bane, Self-Inflicted Wound

R Tempo "aggro wont work in a 5 player game" Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Lovisa Coldeyes, kind of aggro but with more card draw and removal with some good dragons too,

R edicts: Combust, Rending Volley

G Big ol' Ramp Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, just get lots of mana, defiantly include some hydras.

G edicts Display of Dominance, Great Sable Stag, Mold Adder (I kno they're creatures but green gets an exception)

You're right, Blessed Alliance is usually more versatile. While Celestial Purge can take out planeswalkers and random enchantments, I'll go ahead and swap out for Blessed Alliance. Thank you!

Your sideboard could use some tuning. For example you don't need surgical extraction if it is your main card for Dredge and graveyard decks. Honestly even though you are a Logic Knot snapcaster deck. Rest in Peace against dredge is still lights out and you will sideout knot anyway. I also think the number of Blessed Alliance should go up what with Burn and Death shadow being difficult matchups. No Stony Silence that card is really good against artifact decks obviously. I would try and find some room to make 2 slots for it. Why Celestial Purge? Not a fan of thougtseize. Card:Ceremonious Rejection however would be a fine replacement. Last but not least another threat plan when your opponent sides in izzet staticaster to kill your tokens. Something like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Baneslayer Angel. Why baneslayer first strike blocks reality smasher. Lifelink for the aggro matchups. Hard to deal with being a 5/5
