I would recommend dropping down to 38 lands to add in some more cards as 40 seems excessive. Lands I think you could drop are: Orzhov Guildgate , Azorius Guildgate , Dimir Guildgate , Transguild Promenade , Rupture Spire , Jwar Isle Refuge , Darkslick Shores and Barren Moor . You could then replace them for ones like Bojuka Bog , Celestial Colonnade , Creeping Tar Pit , Dimir Aqueduct , Glacial Fortress , Isolated Chapel , Drowned Catacomb , Reliquary Tower , Temple of Enlightenment . That should help you mana base a little bit.

Glimpse the Unthinkable

Sword of Body and Mind

Jace, Memory Adept

Hedron Crab

errr, dual lands like Drowned Catacomb the UB scry land and the UB Shock land (i forget all their names) and man lands like Creeping Tar Pit will help out immensely with your mana base

I'd just like to point out a few things-

If you play snapcaster targeting Archive Trap , you cannot play the Trap for free, even if your opponent searched their deck that turn. The card gets flashback, and that doesn't cover alternate casting costs (However, you can still pay life if the card has pyrexian mana in its casting cost).

I still really like using Hedron Crabs, and even if you don't have the fetches, you have Ghost Quarter where you could use it for some mana fixing as well as double land drop. (Overall you go down a land, but for 1 turn you help color fix if you need and trigger landfall twice.) Also if you own a pair of Oboro, Palace in the Clouds there is no reason not to run Crabs. (I personally only use 1 Oboro, but I have a few fetches too).

It sounds like you know what decks are being played in your meta, so if there is a bunch of aggro then the Wights are good. However it seems to me that aside from Zoo, Affinity, and Merfolk, most other poplular modern decks use very few creatures. I've found that the Phantasms have been enough for me to discourage attackers for a critical turn or two long enough to finish milling them out. I guess it just depends on if you want your main wincon to be beating them down or milling them out.

Your mana base looks ok. You may want to consider using a pair of Shelldock Isle to help get through your deck faster and find those mill spells. They're also inexpensive which is a plus. Darkslick Shores is a better land in the early game, and Drowned Catacomb is better late-game. I prefer making sure my early game lands come into play untapped, so I use Darkslicks over Drowned catacombs. This is mostly due to the fact that i'll play with one land hands if I have a few Thought Scour and Visions of Beyond in my opening hand to help get through my deck and find more lands. If that 1 land comes into play tapped though, I would for sure be forced to mull.

Anyway, hope some of that helped. No matter what anyone says or comments, just make sure you're playing a list that you enjoy playing. If you go competitive with it we can help steer you that way, or if it's just for fun with friends then we can offer help towards that. Keep milling! Price
