Legendary Snow Land
Dark Depths enters the battlefield with ten ice counters on it.
: Remove an ice counter from Dark Depths.
When Dark Depths has no ice counters on it, sacrifice it. If you do, create a legendary 20/20 black Avatar creature token with flying and indestructible named Marit Lage onto the battlefield.

This is probably just too cute, but how often do you think you could drain Dark Depths of all its counters for the sweet 20/20 flying indestructible death monster?

So, the deck got rebuilt from the ground up - pun intended. It's now all lands, all the time!
I just with Dark Depths was Modern legal. Oh well.

The Bullets format is an eternal format in that decks can contain lands and cards with converted mana cost 1 only. All other cards are not legal in the format, such as zero-cost, two-cost, three-cost cards, etc. Any card with CMC 1 is legal, and any land printed in a Modern set is legal. (**Exceptions are on the banlist.)
The format itself is meant to be aggressive and rather unpredictable. The minimum deck size is 60. The maximum number of cards with the same name you can carry in your deck and sideboard is 4 with the exception to basic lands. Sideboards can only contain 15 cards.
The Bullets Format does have its own unofficial ban list.
The ban-list works like most other formats. Cards that would be legal in the format, but are placed on this list can not be played. This list consists of: Ancestral Recall, Candelabra of Tawnos, Contract from Below, Dark Depths, Demonic Consultation, Enlightened Tutor, Entomb, Gamble, Green Sun's Zenith, High Tide, Imperial Seal, Jeweled Bird, Mental Misstep, Mind Twist, Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Skullclamp, Vampiric Tutor, and Worldly Tutor.
Potential Questions and Answers are listed below.
Why Modern set lands only? Lands are essential in any deck, and for such a fringe format the advantage a player with OG duel lands over someone with tap lands is too much especially when the format is strictly one-drops where speed is paramount. With the Ravnica shock lands there is more balance, especially with price tags.
Why isn't Sol Ring banned? In a format full of one-drops Sol Ring isn't around to ramp you into three and four drops on turn 2. When all your spells usually cost one type of color mana alone the advantages of having Sol Ring in your deck aren't as big as in other formats where its banned.
Please let me know if you have any questions, criticisms, or thoughts, thank you.

It tells you on the side panel whether or not a card is format legal. For instance, in your deck Umezawa's Jitte and Dark Depths are not legal in Modern. Im always down for tribal though, but maybe some more removal like Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, or the new card Fatal Push. Great value in those cards and very versatile.

nobody at my lgs runs sneak and show, so its not something my sideboard will reflect a great deal. However, i'm pretty confident against it. in addition to Reclamation Sage, Golgari Charm can also break Sneak Attack. as far as testing; my game one against it isnt ideal, but it isnt a lost cause either. A small bit of luck goes a long way, and hitting them with good Cabal Therapys can cripple their early game.
after that, liliana is a pain if they Show and Tell something out. she can even hit emrakul. so we have options. the biggest problem is if they Sneak Attack an emrakul, but that's something we can hit proactively to some extent. beyonid that, Griselbrand isnt as effective as you'd expect in the matchup. sneak and show is mostly fluff, and since this deck goes wide, we can usually get past him for a win. In essence, having titania or Grave Titan out are just usually better than them resolving a Griselbrand. Once again, it's a close match, so they can very easily take games from nowhere.
as for lands, nobody i know has the cash to build it properly. Ive seen a variant or two come and go at the shop, but it never sticks cuz its just never very good. I actually considered building dredge with sideboard into the Dark Depths combo just to fill the niche, but we have 2 classic dredge players already, so meh. If it ever comes in with some force, i know how to adjust for it.
anyway, this deck as is, will be what i take to the shop on saturday, so i should have more reliable feedback after the weekend
thanks for the discussion! I've been playing magic for 10 years, but legacy is a new format for me, so it helps tremendously =)

A dimir build would be nice indeed (Access to a lot of horrors when you add black, and also discard cards like Inquisition of Kozilek). About Dark Depths, I don't think it is modern legal (unless it changed recently), exactly because of the combo with Vampire Hexmage, the card -Counterspell- mentioned

No, your right. I'm not being sarcastic. I just didn't have my brain turned on all the way.
I was totally thinking I wanted to add ice counters. I'm really glad you pointed out my mistake.
I won't be building this deck as is... I might still build a horror deck if I can find a "remove counter" concept and if my wallet gets big enough for a Spellskite.
