I think you should try adding more ramp. Noble Hierarch is the best option, but it might not fit in your budget, so I would get Birds of Paradise or maybe Avacyn's Pilgrim. That would also make it easier for your Fracturing Gust idea to work.

Ratchet Bomb could be an OK idea to replace Engineered Explosives. It's a lot slower, but I've seen decks use it to good results.

I agree with solarPULSAR about running Ghost Quarter over Gavony Township. It looks like the deck wouldn't do great against Tron.

Cool deck, looks like it works well against Abzan and Jund!

Okay, so your sideboard is all over the place. xD My suggestions: go down to 1/2 Wear / Tear, since they are super blank against most decks. Give a one-of Celestial Purge a shot, as it hits everything relevant from Grixis Shadow and Lilianas and Bobs from BGx decks. I also suggest playing the 3rd and 4th Path in the board. 2x Disdainful Stroke for ETron and GTron, Valakut, Death's Shadow, etc., 1x Ceremonious Rejection for overlap with Affinity and Lantern. 1x Engineered Explosives could be good too.

i would cut Serum Visions since the card is to weak compared to jace. I would replace those for 2 additional Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, 1 more Inquisition of Kozilek and 1 more Dark Confidant.

I would also shift the Maelstrom Pulse to the SB and add an additional Fatal Push.

Tireless Tracker seems very weak to me, i would replace him with Scavenging Ooze.

For the SB:Engineered Explosives seems a bit random. i would run an additional Damnation. 2 Kitchen Finks will not make a big difference versus burn, as well as Disdainful Stroke and Countersquall, i would replace those with 3 Spell Pierce the one Maelstrom Pulse and 2 Obstinate Baloth

For detailed sideboarding plans, i would suggested some rl talking.

Hello, LTmiller I have a NM Engineered Explosives for trade. I'd like to trade for your Mana Crypt and then make up the difference with $. Does that sound like something you'd be interested in?

No I don't have any Zendikar Expeditions, I am not a huge fan of the art so I didn't invest in them, I have a couple Kaladesh inventions (Chalice of the Void and Engineered Explosives) but they are higher end and I don't really want to trade them, if I find any for cheap I'll let you know and you can tell me if your interested to trade for them, though that is a long shot.

Remember cards like Mind Bend can be used to change a lands type from one basic land type to another. For example, Forest can be changed to Island so it produces blue mana. It doesnt change the name of any permanent.

This works about 50% on modern dual lands. For cards like Godless Shrine, that aren't already an Island, you can make it a Plains Island, or a Swamp Island. For Hallowed Fountain, you can turn it into an Island Island. It's not as good as the other Islanders you have, but it doesn't die to Engineered Explosives-type effects.

I bring this up mostly because you could probably run Blood Moon, and change the text so it reads "Nonbasic lands are Islands". Or sideboard Mind Bend against decks that run Blood Moon.

Want: Kaladesh Masterpiece Sol Ring OR Mana Crypt

Have: Money, and Kaladesh Masterpiece Engineered Explosives for trade as well

First off, the small synergy: since you are running Tolaria West you could also use cards like Engineered Explosives that can be reused to create a softlock with Academy Ruins...

But the main things I have been testing and that look a hell lot more promising are changing the way the deck is played by a bit. Wheel of Fate is incredibly strong at finding Gargadons and basically anything else (I prefer playing one of it than a third Balance or a fourth Vision to be honest). Simian Spirit Guide is a blast to use when going off with Restore Balance (the hand dumping power of this is real). And probably the most surprising of all: Temporal Mastery without trying to pile up additionnal turns, only for a good old vintage Time Walk for extra suspend, As Foretold, land drop and Chandra value. Just in case I happen to draw some and loot them, I am currently trying Bloodwater Entity which is also very good at reseting a Vision or a Balance on top of the deck, ready for action. ;)

Here are my two lists: the first one is just another take at taking turns which used As foretold, and the second one is the current list I am playtesting on xmage. c:
