ThisIsBullshit on I Hope You Weren't Very Attached To Those Cards

Well Cabal Coffers is really good, Command Tower I think I already mentioned, Darkslick Shores , Dismal Backwater is better than the guildgates, Drowned Catacomb is also pretty good. Since this is two color, not three, it's easier to get mana fixed, so those lands should get you set, and I suppose you could run the blue black fetch and shock lands, but thems are expensive.

Drop the Transguild Promenade ,Rupture Spire and Grixis Panorama for mana rocks (preferably the ones I already mentioned, if no get Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo with the mana vault) next Dragonskull Summit ,Sulfur Falls ,Drowned Catacomb should replace Rakdos Carnarium ,Izzet Boilerworks and Akoum Refuge

I do like that you have the rocks, and draw. Those are important as well.

Some of the individual destroy effects are not always helpful. It depends on the decks you play against, but if they run hexproof stuff like Asceticism , or indestructible like the soul of Neil Patrick Harris, or Avacyn, Angel of Hope it is a dead card. I prefer the exile effects. Also tuck effects are nice if your group plays with them. Hinder , Spell Crumple , Oblation , Void Stalker . The threat of tuck is a good way to make people leave you alone.

You also run a few too many walls for my liking. Wall of Omens is decent because you don't lose the card. Fog Bank , and Wall of Denial are really good though.

Not sure if Unwinding Clock is really used in it's full potential here.

Drowned Catacomb , Darkslick Shores , Seachrome Coast , Isolated Chapel , and shocks if possible. They will never be lower then they are now. Hallowed Fountain , Watery Grave , Godless Shrine -- some lands to look towards.

Do you want to hav a modern-legal deck? I couldn't find it but some people seem to think so...

Anyway, if you want to have a competitive modern deck, $100 isn't nearly enough (the mana base alone exceeds that limit). If you just want to play with friends, there are options.

For budget mana, play Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Dimir Guildgate , Temple of Deceit , Darkslick Shores , Drowned Catacomb , Dimir Signet , maybe Dimir Keyrune .

Great and relatively cheap permanent mill cards are Hedron Crab , Memory Erosion and Mesmeric Orb . I'd advise playing them. Yes, they can and will be destroyed, but they will mill more cards than instants/sorceries, nontheless. And let's face it, Glimpse the Unthinkable is great but out of your budget. Play Propaganda and/or Riddlekeeper against creature heavy decks.

Jace's Phantasm is a great beater if you wan to have a win-con except milling.

Consuming Aberration isn't all that great. Sure, it's a huge beast but that's pointless if it gets chump blocked. The mill ability depends very much on luck, on average you will hit 3-4 cards starting turn 6. It is fun if you play Phenax, God of Deception , same goes for Sewer Nemesis .

If you want to play competitively, you shouldn't play straight mill, but a control deck with mill as a win con (Nephalia Drownyard ). If you want to play casually, straight up mill is fine, but even then you probably need at least removal spells. Doom Blade , Go for the Throat , Murder , Diabolic Edict , Grisly Spectacle , Pongify and Rapid Hybridization from the top of my head, black has a lot more, blue has bounce spells.

If you don't like your mana being bad, play dual lands. Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove and Razorverge Thicket all help your GW cast spells more consistently. There's a solution to every problem. For mill, the lands would be Darkslick Shores , Watery Grave , Drowned Catacomb

Hedron Crab is a very cool option, as it gives you a consistent source of mill by just playing your lands. Shelldock Isle synergizes well with the mill cards, allowing you to play more of them more quickly.

Mind Sculpt is a card you may have missed. Glimpse the Unthinkable is the best mill card out there, and Archive Trap punishes people using fetchlands.

Here is my discard deck that may give you some ideas

Waste Not, Raven Playtest

Modern addaff


Ok. Now let's take stuff apart. I know The unblockable stuff is for the cipher ability, but you don't want to restock their hands. I do see the Wheel and Deal synergy though ;) Take out the Megrim s. That gives me about 10 slots to play with.

The Rack to replace the Megrim s. If your friends play with planeswalkers you can have it damage them instead of your friends.

I use Wistful Thinking for "forced" discarding. Black is full of target player discard spells. Distress , Duress , Despise , Inquisition of Kozilek , and Thoughtseize to name a few.

Mana. I would go out and get some Drowned Catacomb s for 2 bucks each. The new set will have reprints of old fetch lands.

Take out the Sign in Blood since your using blue there is no need to pay life to draw. Preordain and Ponder are some examples for you.

Since you did say multiplayer.. Jace's Archivist would be a nice alternative to the cipher ability.
