Creeping Tar Pit Discussion

Madhava on Esper Spirits - Modern

Looks good... but I'd say you're leaving yourself a little open to control-tactics. People are likely to side-in boardwipes on game 2. Countersquall & Collective Brutality are fantastic preventatives. I'd definitely consider running with more.

I'm also going to second all those recommending a full 4-of Lingering Souls. The card can win games on its own.

Some other ideas...If your wallet allows, definitely Cavern of Souls, 2 or 3, preferably.

Ditto for Creeping Tar Pit, 1 or 2.

Maybe a Kataki, War's Wage for your sideboard?

If you want more counters, Logic Knot is one of the best, seeing as you've not much else going on with your graveyard. Deprive also costs only CMC 2, & pairs nicely with Fatal Push. Careful running more than 1 or 2; drawing multiples of either in your opening hand is undesirable.

Spreading Seas can be devastating v. Tron, Valakut, or color-greedy decks in general... 2 to 4 recommended, main or sideboard.

Ceremonious Rejection is sideboard gold.

Disenchant on sideboard is okay, but as far as spot removal, Anguished Unmaking would cover far more ground.

try replacing some rakdos lands with Dimir ones. I suggest taking out Sulfurous Springs and Dragonskull Summit in favor of Creeping Tar Pit and Fetid Pools

Do you have a list for it? I would love to test against a Sultai deck. I've always preferred Jund, but Sultai is my close second favorite Archetype. I just can't splurge for Aether Vials, Snapcaster Mages and Cryptic Commands. Creeping Tar Pit isn't cheap either. I've always liked Sultai, but it has so many cards that I just don't have right now.

The lands are not great. Perhaps manlands like Creeping Tar Pit or check lands such as Drowned Catacomb

Hello again! I'm not sure how all-in you want to be on the Ooze plan, so I'll split my suggestions into tribal suggestions, Atraxa cards, and generally-good-cards suggestions. Oozes first!

Now Atraxa cards!

And some just-generally-good cards:

Good luck with your deck! Oozes forever!

Surgical Extraction could help you get your Thing in the Ice  Flip to flip quicker. Also 4 copies of Polluted Delta is where you want to be at. Ditch the Sunken Hollows for Creeping Tar Pit and drop 1 Spell Pierce/1 Spellskite for 2 more deltas. Nice deck though. +1

unfortunately, thing in the ice isn't really a strong enough threat for modern. You're better off increasing your land count, and adding in Creeping Tar Pit as the second wincon

I really don't think Cryptic and Remand add enough value to the deck for the splash.

I like the idea, but think it needs some more refining.

I'd also add 2 less basics and 2 more Creeping Tar Pit
