VraskaTheCursed on Modern Persist Combo

cool idea! gotta love combo

i think Diabolic Tutor is too slow for modern, so I'd take out those. you DEFINITELY need spot removal in modern. Bile Blight simply won't cut it, especially against aggressive decks. 3 Condemn instead of 3 Diabolic Tutor is probably the best budget option, and i'd replace the High Priest of Penance with 3 Oblivion Ring and 1 Condemn

im just wondering how come you dont have much in the way of tutor cards? such as Fabricate, Enlightened Tutor or Diabolic Tutor i play a deck alot like this tho ive tried to stay away from infinite combos as much as possible. link below

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy Cabal Coffers. You can search for them with expedition map that you have already included.

Diabolic Tutor and Beseech the Queen to search for what you need when you need it.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse for ink-eyes (or with hatred + commander)

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated for more artifact and enchantment removal. All Is Dust can help too.

Overwhelming Forces is worse than Decree of Pain (imo) because it's for all creatures (recursion shouldn't be a problem for you) and you can cycle it.

Syphon Mind for card draw and discard

Phyrexian Arena for card draw

Trading Post to combo with contamination or to recur artifacts

Corpse Dance to continuously recur your creatures or get extra value from your commander

Vampire Hexmage to destroy planeswalkers (among other things) and to combo with Dark Depths

Snuff Out seems weak, especially if your meta runs a lot of black creatures.

I love seeing another Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed player. I'm not sure what your win conditions are. If you want some other ideas, feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness.

Black's strengths are mana ramp and tutors

Vesuva + Thespian's Stage to copy Cabal Coffers

Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Revelation (possibly).

Syphon Mind is great for multiplayer. Other card draw includes Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for more artifact and enchantment removal

Vampire Hexmage for planeswalker removal

Aethertide Whale is a very good source of energy counters for it has evasion. hehe I use that in my esper control hedron alignment deck as a sideboard against midrange.

Minister of Inquiries is a nice one drop. It can become a blocker once you consumed all of your energy counters or if you decide to put Aethersphere Harvester, he will crew it for you.

Diabolic Tutor will help you find the piece/s to win but it doesnt help you to win. instead, it will delay you for a turn that can cost you a game or even a round. Trust me, I had it one before on my deck and it costed me a lot for a game. Ill stick to the cards that you have and play a grinding game.

What i mean on recasting Manic Scribe is you cast Engulf the Shore with manic scribes, return those in your hand and cast it again...or you can do Baral's Expertise, bounce manic scribe and recast it again for free. With Torrential Gearhulk, you can cast Engulf the Shore again (assuming you just used one of them), bounce the gearhulk and recast the gearhulk again targeting another instant spell. Also, engulf the shore is very good against that pesky Scrapheap Scrounger and any midrange decks for it will reset their board and they will readjust using their limited source of mana.

Glimmer of Genius is great for any control decks for it smooths your card draw. you can always replace Catalog or any three drop slot for either another removal or a counterspell its up to you.

Thanks for confirming what I've been slowly realizing over the past few days usurphling! I am trying to do too much. You just gotta love Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for a mill deck though, right? LOL!

Anywho, yeah I think I am going to cut the 2 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, 3 Rise from the Grave, and 1 or both of the Diabolic Tutor. Since Engulf the Shore was already in there, I have 6 slots open. So what do you think about 4 Minister of Inquiries and then 2 other blue creatures or artifacts to get more energy counters, like 2 Glassblower's Puzzleknot, or 2 Thriving Turtle, or 2 Aether Theorist? Also, maybe the 4 Catalog should be replaced with Glimmer of Genius? Glimmer does cost more to cast though. What do you think? Not sure about mono-blue, I like the Fatal Push and Murder, as well as the possibility of siding in some Yahenni's Expertise, but maybe that'll end up being too slow. I'll have to think more on that one.

What did you mean by recasting Manic Scribe? With the Hulk?!

Hello there :)

First of all I wanna say that like your Deck, however I noticed a couple of things.

You said not to suggest Demoic or Vampiric Tutor, however you can get a Diabolic Tutor, a Beseech the Queen and Liliana Vess fairly cheaply as Tutor alternatives. Also your Deck has 102 cards in it, you might wanna cut off a few cards. ;)

Since Alesha herself brings quite a lot of reanimation to the table, you also might consider Ashnod's Altar for some extra Mana.

I hope that some of my suggestions might be useful for you. ;) +1 from me :D
