Expedition Map Discussion

Does the current all-in Dark Depths deck have room for it? I would imagine it wants even more copies of the combo. However, the deck is currently "solved" with cards not building the combo put in strictly to protect it. I wouldn't cut Pithing Needle or Lotus Petal.
Maybe cut an Expedition Map? They're rarely ever seen as a full playset.

You need Cabal Coffers to get Mana bigly, and when you do, believe me, you'll be winning with this X spells so much, you'll be tired of winning, believe me.
You also need to drain the swamp, but we all know you're just going to add to it, so use Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in your cabinet rather than those dirty Goldman Sachs representatives.
Expedition Map is also good for finding these. I got tired of speaking like Trump.

If you're building in a format that doesn't care about bans/restrictions then you might want to switch to Tron lands Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower and the Locus lands Cloudpost Glimmerpost and then specific land fetches like Expedition Map and land copiers like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even more mana. The only thing is it's all colorless so you'd either have to drop green and just use Eldrazi and Artifacts or this isn't that big of a help.

PookandPie your suggestions are highly appreciated. I'm not sure how, but I forgot that Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx existed even though I use them in other commander decks. Expedition Map flew completely under my radar and I'm really grateful that you suggested it. I would run Sanguine Bond, but I played against someone who managed to pull the 2 enchantment combo off, and it wasn't necessarily that fun. So even though it is a win condition I'll leave it out of my deck. Diabolic Revelation is another card that I didn't know existed until you mentioned it, but sadly I was already replacing Behold the Beyond with Demonic Tutor due to the fact that it never saw play even if I drew it, because it cost too much mana and the discard effect is also pretty nasty when you have a good hand.

If you're running Exquisite Blood, I see no reason to not run Sanguine Bond too since they can make you win immediately if both are on field together.
Diabolic Revelation is a card I like much more than Behold the Beyond. It scales upward, so if you have more than 8, you can find more cards than you could with Behold, but it also doesn't make you discard your hand. Sometimes, also, you may just need 1 more card and Revelation can be one cheaper to cast in those situations.
Cabal Coffers would be phenomenal here. Expedition Map to more reliably find Coffers or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be great as well (which would also benefit Zombie Master wins, too). Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx seems like a no brainer as well.

Any thoughts on Nimble Obstructionist in Modern? Just looking at top tier decks shows a lot of possible things to hit playing it.
Affinity: A big Ravager Sacrifice
Any given Grixis Deck: Snapcaster, Tasigur
Dredge: Landfall triggers, Insolent Neonate
And while I know this card is no Stifle , an uncounterable turn 3 cantrip stifle on a fetchland could be just as brutal as a turn 1. Additionally, it can just come down as a 3/1 beater and rail on your opponent any time you don't need it. Thoughts?

Thought Vessel is interesting, but if you're worried about that max hand size I might just run Expedition Map with the option of grabbing Reliquary Tower (or Maze of Ith), since of course the land should be more resilient. And speaking of lands, you could stand to add one more to get your mana producers up to that sweet 37.
You mentioned you were worried about a lack of kills... You could try to find room for True Conviction. It'll certainly help you deal a lot more combat damage.
It's tough to find a cut for Ghostly though, I guess see how the deck runs without it for now

Thanks very much for your feedback! My initial thought was to stax the hell out of my opponents (using tokens whenever possible), then attack with my actual creatures (+ any tokens I have left). However, if you have ideas on the other strategy (getting damage in, without attacking), I'm all ears.
As for Sylvan Scrying and Expedition Map; yeah I can see those working. I'll see if I can make room. I'm not sure why the guildgate lands are in there at all, they shouldn't be haha. I'll make some adjustments on that front too.
I was looking for reanimation and recursion effects for non-creatures; if you have any suggestions please share.
