soliced When I originally built the deck, I had two Hour of Reckoning in the sideboard for those creature-heavy matches, like Zoo and Death's Shadow decks, but through gameplay, I realized that slot was better used on something else, like the Leyline of Sanctity's you see. My match against burn spells is much worse than against creature decks because I can kill and chump creatures for days, although I can't protect myself from burn at all. Leyline also protects me from discard from the black decks in the format, so if I get a turn 0 Leyline, that's basically an auto-scoop against some decks. I've had various opponents concede to a turn 0 Leyline because they have no way through it.

As for Brave the Elements, most of my tokens are already flying, which means I have a ton of evasion as it is. If push comes to shove and I need that extra boost to get me through, I have Collective Brutality as a way to get that extra reach, or even Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can fight through a full board since he's indestructable as long as he's a creature.

22 lands seems a bit lite if you have 4's of Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I would add an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and another swamp. Thrull Parasite and Deathgreeter seem week. I would add some amount of Collective Brutality (all modes are relevant against burn).

Thank you Flooremoji !

Bitterblossom is modern legal, no problem here.

For the moment, i think the current list is my favorite one, but there are some tests i still have to do. This is what i want to try :

I like Collective Brutality. That's a cool card.

Bloodchief Ascension is a nice card to for offsetting life lost and some discard shenanigans. It takes a little longer to get running though, in my opinion. I like Liliana's Caress and Megrim for the discard stuff. To a lesser extent, Underworld Dreams but that's more card draw than discard. Only drawback is no life gain on those, if that's what you're looking for from Bloodchief Ascension.

What's the thought process behind no Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, or Collective Brutality? Is it that you're more concerned with cycling through your deck and finding threats, rather than controlling the board for the mid-game?

I think you could drop th Bloodghast for a full set of Lingering Souls. (Bonus value with Collective Brutality) Those little Spirit tokens will win many games for you.
