It looks like a ton of fun to play, did you ever consider adding in elements like Fall of the Thran or Armageddon once you have your avengers assembled so to speak?

You could run Fall of the Thran , and then exile your opponent's graveyards with cards like Remorseful Cleric , Leyline of the Void or Phyrexian Scriptures .

Rector is probably one of the most powerful cards in the deck so if you have the luxury of getting one, it's one of the highest priority. The sheer versatility it brings is insane and will give your opponent a headache when your targets vary from Parallax Wave to Fall of the Thran to Animate Dead or just an innocent Phyrexian Arena . It's also one of the more fun cards to play since it gives you so many impactful choices.

I don't know if Treasure Map will survive the next cut. That all depends on new cards being released. For now it feels like a solid inclusion. It scries, it draws, it turns into a land meaning the deck runs a theoretical 39 lands. Time will tell if it survives the next cut. Sometimes I just cut cards to change it up or to try new cards. However this and Thaumatic Compass  Flip feel like solid (albeit somewhat boring) inclusions.

I've not had the luxury of having Teysa Karlov in play yet. The joys of being light on tutors, sometimes you just won't see a card for months. That being said, I don't need to see it in practice to know it will be completely busted. There's a reason Massacre Wurm is back in the deck ;)

There should be an "Updates" section just above the comments with a green "Add" button to the right.

Treasure Map  Flip was on my short list for a while before the Command Zone episode but it never clicked in my head that it could be a swap over Read the Bones . RtB has the benefit of giving immediate value (making it a great top deck later on) while TM is more of a long term value engine. I'm still looking for a card that provides some immediate value, Skeletal Scrying is high on my list for that.

Fall of the Thran was never included because of Emeria Shepherd but just had some additional synergy. The way you describe it, you're using FotT wrong. It's (almost) never used to stall the game. You use it to seal the deal. Once you've done your big play, you follow it up with FotT so it's highly unlikely that someone can respond in the next few turns outside of the stuff that is on the board. It's also usable to cripple a ramp player. Someone plays Boundless Realms , you play FotT, gg. The only time when I would use FotT to stall is when i'm stuck on mana and I need to equalize it. Say you finally get your fourth mana to cast Academy Rector while the rest is on 7-8 lands, in that case FotT is a very real option if I don't suspect graveyard removal.

FotT is at its best with Academy Rector. If you have Rector in play and someone plays a sweeper, you can float mana, exile Rector to find FotT and use your mana to cast Thrilling Encore . If you have a Cathars' Crusade in play and cast a big token producer ( Army of the Damned , Grave Titan ), sac your Rector and protect your board from responses. You now have 1-2 turns to take out the biggest threat to your board.

So to conclude, Shepherd is not required to play FotT. Academy Rector more or less is though.

I dig your explanation on the update yesterday. I saw Treasure Map  Flip on a Command Zone game knights episode and it just did so much work.....WITH Smothering Tithe too! Ima be picking up one of them.

With the cut of Emeria Shepherd do you plan to cut Fall of the Thran ??? I got an emeria shepherd because of your list and it's seemingly great synergy, but I never added Fall of the thran because to me it was just an "oh that's cute, you're gonna stall out the game now cuz you have no way to win?" kinda card. Land destruction makes you the prime target in my playgroup.

I would know...I've used Crucible of worlds + stripmine in my omnath 'drop 4 lands a turn' deck and people come after me nonstop after that lmao

Funkydiscogod on Ideally this Modern Deck Would be Epic

I had a new idea: Use Enduring Ideal to get a Fall of the Thran , then, on your upkeep Aura of Silence it before it gets the 2nd lore counter after your your draw step. This will stop lands from coming back, and opponents will be unable to pay for the Ghostly Prison and Suppression Field . And, it's not like you need lands once Epic is happening.
