Hi, tappedout won't let me comment on the deck so I'll do it here. It seems like a really cool idea, and the deck seems to run well, however, manamorphose seems to do very little for the deck, so I would suggest replacing it. My personal pick would be Delver of Secrets  Flip, but something like Faithless Looting or Serum Visions would probably work as well, or maybe even Arclight Phoenix . Also, I would suggest swapping the Misty Rainforest s for 1 Sacred Foundry and 1 Sulfur Falls . Hope this helps, and good luck.

Here's my deck:

Gauging interest to see if anyone would be interested in trading for the GP Seattle Delver of Secrets  Flip flip mat. Images can be found here

I can send you more updated pics, but mine is around the LP condition.

Pillage probably isn't better than Fulminator Mage , so I don't think there's any harm in introducing it to modern.

The sword isn't very exciting to me, but I'm a modern and legacy player, so the bar for being exciting is pretty high.

Hexdrinker is kind of scary. The potential to be a really powerful card is there. I want to try to use it like a True-Name Nemesis , but I'm not quite sure what to do with it yet. Could it be played like a Delver of Secrets  Flip? A small creature that becomes a deadly threat if left unchecked?

I wonder what the black mythics will be.

I'm playing a budget UR Delver of Secrets  Flip deck featuring Nivmagus Elemental and Gigadrowse , which makes the matchup miserable for mono-green infect. If you use it to tap down their lands at the perfect time, they lose their ability to keep up. e.g. being turn 2 in their upkeep tap down their land, they can respond, but it forces them to use their combat tricks in their upkeep and prevents any surprise blowouts.

The biggest issue is that you lack removal. You have plenty of resource denial. Narset, Parter of Veils could help make it work. You definitely need to run Vapor Snag and maybe play Callous Dismissal . You probably have to play Tempest Djinn and Delver of Secrets  Flip. I also like Elusive Spellfist . You MUST play Serum Visions and maybe Opt as digging through your deck is important.

cdkime on 4 color control

The biggest problem your deck has is the fact that it is four colours. It's really, really hard to effectively run a four colour deck, and there is generally no reason to do so. Even as four-colour decks go, this one is particularly problematic. Counterspell , for example, is a fantastic card, but does not work with your mana--there's going to be plenty of times you want to Counterspell , but don't have .

Personally, I would recommend cutting down to three colours. However, this is your deck, and I'm going to give you suggestions based on the assumption you want to stick with four colours.


Non-utility lands that enter tapped have no place outside of the most casual of games, and, even then, will cause you to lose matches. Cut every land you have that enters tapped. Instead of the tri lands, consider cards like City of Brass and Mana Confluence --a little bit of life is well worth having faster mana.


On your Deck Help thread, you asked about Find / Finality as an option. I find Find / Finality to be a fairly solid card, and run 2-3 copies of in my Sultai Arena deck's mainboard. Both halves of the card are powerful and allow you to stabilize or change the course of the entire game.

You also asked about removal you can run. Abrupt Decay is a great card that hits a lot of threats, can't be countered, and is cheaper than Assassin's Trophy . I would recommend mainboarding a couple copies of Abrupt Decay .


Captive Audience is a very fun card, but comes out a bit too late and works too slowly to be all that effective. It also does not work well with your spell-slinger theme.


Delver of Secrets  Flip is a great creature for spell-slinging decks, which is what a Thing in the Ice  Flip deck really wants to be.


Related to the above, you might want to add more instant and sorcery spells. You can probably cut the two planeswalkers, since they both come down a little late in the game.


20 lands seems like it is too few. You should probably go up to 22--your average CMC is a bit on the high side, but several of those larger-cost cards have delve.


Given your problems with tokens, adding a few more Damnation -like cards would probably help. Cards like Dread of Night and Engineered Plague might be good sideboard options against token strategies.


Hope some of that helps!

Wall of Omens alongside Delver of Secrets  Flip isn't where you want to be. Get rid of one or the other. I highly highly recommend 4 Spell Queller . If you want to play Restoration Angel , I don't think Monastery Mentor will be better than Geist or Queller. But if you wanted to go a different direction and play fewer creatures and tons of cantrips, then Monastery Mentor could be insane. Medomai the Ageless is 6 mana. Don't play it. Ojutai is greedy enough as it is.

Opt is popular in UW because it can hit Terminus . In this I think Serum Visions is better, especially if you're trying to flip Delver of Secrets. But on the whole this doesn't really look or feel like a delver deck.

I guess, what do you want to play? What cards are you attached to building around?
