Nice to see snap delver thing out and about again. Some spells I'd consider that have done well with this deck in the past.

Mutavault

Psionic Blast

Disrupting Shoal

Those aside Commandeer is almost a must have for tron.

When I ran this deck in the past I qas able to run 4 blue fetches along with a main deck Prairie Stream and a Geist of Saint Traft in the sideboard.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor is easily castable in this deck and would help fuel your hands to flip your thing in the Ice.

Ooh, Faeries. I play with Faeries a lot, so, naturally, a few ideas came to mind.

  • I'm not a fan of Mind Sculptor in the deck. Yes, he's powerful, but he's a sorcery-speed four-mana spell that doesn't win the game immediately. Liliana's a much better fit here, especially being able to recur your faeries for even more fun.
  • Something I always recommend with Faerie decks is Cavern of Souls, and, in your case, you play a lot of wizards, so you can name that. Also in terms of landbase, I don't like Tar Pit, as it comes in too slow, and would suggest Secluded Glen instead.
  • I like using Scion of Oona, as it helps to protect your faeries (including Bitterblossom!) and smash face when that time comes. Four may be too much, but a few seem like good options.
  • In terms of hand disruption, my view is that Thoughtseize is pretty important: it's proactive threat neutralization for one mana (and two life), though Inquisition of Kozilek is perhaps better in the early game.
  • As crazy as it sounds, with all the blue you have in the deck, Commandeer may be a good option in the sideboard. It swipes Planeswalkers and big spells otherwise (ex. Part the Waterveil in the "oops all turns" builds), plus it costing zero mana means it can often come from nowhere. You also have Imp's Mischief as a very unexpected misdirection-like effect.

As for specific deck answers...

  • I run Hurkyl's Recall as a sideboard answer for Affinity/Lantern: two mana to bounce almost anything can be a lifesaver.
  • For storm (I don't know if it's very popular where you are), consider both Mindbreak Trap and Nimble Obstructionist. The latter can also serve as a 3/1 blocker/face smasher and can also stop nasty effects you don't want to deal with.
  • To deal with graveyards and graveyard shenanigans, either Extirpate, Leyline of the Void, Relic of Progenitus, or Surgical Extraction are all potentially good options to consider. I'm a fan of the Relic, but Leyline's useful as well in that it comes out on turn 0 if needed.

Daedalus19876: First, let me start off by saying that I love Vera, and it is a great honor to hear a truly great deckbuilder say that they are a fan of my deck. Thank you!

I actually forgot to put Dramatic Reversal in the deck. It will be finding its way in right after I am done writing this.

Sunder was a card I forgot existed! It definitely needs a place in this deck!

Foil seems like a better counterspell than Stoic Rebuttal. I am not sure about Commandeer, it seems too situational.

Treasure Cruise has been underwhelming for me. Dig Through Time should be a nice replacement.

WalkingIllusion: While Sphinx's Tutelage is a good card, it doesn't do what we are trying to do in this deck. Thanks for the suggestion!

This deck is impressive and I am very much a fan. However, a few quick thoughts :)

Why in the world are you not playing Dramatic Reversal? It goes infinite with Isochron Scepter+rocks, functions as a decent ramp spell on many hands, and allows you to do disgusting things if you have a Stasis down but have not yet assembled the winning combo.

Have you considered Sunder? It's the mono-blue Armageddon, and it functions like Turnabout to force your opponents to "tap out" on the turn you plan to win.

I see you are already running most of the defensive counterspells, but have you considered Foil and Commandeer? You should have plenty of cards to pitch considering all of your symmetrical draw effects.

And finally, this is personal preference, but I highly prefer Dig Through Time over Treasure Cruise in this kind of deck (where you are trying to find a few specific, central cards within the 99).

Happy deckbuilding! You definitely get a +1 from me ;)

dosipovitch on Competitive Modern Mill

Thank you SO much for this guide. I'm looking to get into Modern, playing a play style that I enjoy (even if it isn't the most competitive to start). I had a couple questions for you...

1) I'm guessing that Jace, Memory Adept is just way too slow for this deck, even with Shelldock Isle?

2) Why Nihil Spellbomb over Tormod's Crypt? Is it for the potential draw? My thought was that the 0 cost would help out the curve.

3) What are your thoughts on Commandeer for dealing with Leyline of Sanctity? It wouldn't work against a turn 0 Leyline, so I'm not sure what your thoughts would be on that.

4) What are your thoughts on forcing your opponent to draw to lose during say an Emrakul trigger? For example, Shelldock Isle an Overflowing Insight , playing Careful Consideration, or Cephalid Coliseum?

Thanks again for the time and energy you put into this. I appreciate any and all input!

Subtlety on Mono Blue Delver (Tempo)

Luxor11 3x Commandeer in and 2x Spreading Seas in. The cards that must be replaced are depending on the situation and the type of tron deck. It could be Redirect or Remand or maybe some Cryptic Command.

Die Capsize-Stasis Kombo hatte ich nicht auf dem Schirm, wrde ich auch drin lassen.

Echoing Truth hat den Vorteil gegenber Token-Decks. Auerdem hast du 3 Moeglichkeiten, die auf 1 zu reduzieren.

Bei Commandeer dachte ich mir schon fast, dass du die deshalb drin hast.Falls es dein Budget nicht noch weiter sprengt, oder auch fuer spaeter, schau dir mal Pact of Negation an

Miscalculation ist ganz nett, aber (meiner Meinung nach) der schwchste Counter in dem Deck. Vor allem im Commander sind im spteren Verauf des Spiels nicht mehr viel
