Since Naban, Dean of Iteration is illegal, Kaho is definitely top pick for my own deck ideas. I only have store bought EDH decks so far.

Cerulean Wisps is great for turning your mana into cards 1 for 1 as Elite Arcanist or Kaho, Minamo Historian.

Quicken will let you play at the end of opponent's turn.

Back from the Brink will give creatures Flashback. Pretty useful for EDH I think.

Torrential Gearhulk will Flashback any instant. If you equip a low mana exile bounce card you can Flashback your graveyard instants as if they were in your hand. Double up on counterspells. Any creatures that return spells on ETB to hand also become very potent. Imagine tapping Elite Arcanist for 1 colourless each turn and getting back an instant or sorcery due to Archaeomancer. Crazy.

Quicksilver Amulet for gives creatures Flash. Saves on counterspells.

Fold into AEther if given to your commander will let you cast 1 mana spells just to counter. This will let you drop a creature down instantly as if they had Flash for 5 mana. If you can get Elite Arcanist to equip one then you can Flash creatures in regularly.

Other ETB creatures to take advantage of exile bounce triggers. Turns creatures into a reuseable spellbook.

A big ol' +1 for the wonderful theme deck! Always been a fan of Moonfolk.

To the issues you describe in the comments, I have the following suggestions:

  1. To better search up those essential artifacts, Trophy Mage will help her Trinket and Treasure brothers. She will get you your precious, precious Heartstone and another helpful card I'll suggest later. Tutoring for creatures will be a pain in blue no matter what, so rely on card draw as much as you can. I'd move away from big, single-use draw spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and instead focus on ability-based effects. You've got a fair number of Moonfolk Wizards; maybe Azami, Lady of Scrolls can be of service.
  2. When you're rockin' a deck as powerful as Moonfolk tribal, people start to get jelly. And when people be jelly, they blow up your stuff. But there's a Vedalken that can help protect your colorless stuff: Padeem, Consul of Innovation. For your creatures...I can't believe I'm about to suggest this... try Tortoise Formation. And when you're done laughing at my poor judgement, the best thing blue can do to prevent destruction is counter, so invest even more in that.
  3. Finally (and I'm so sorry this has turned into a long comment), I'd like to suggest making some changes to specific cards. Lay Bare isn't doing you any favors. Run literally anything else...okay not Fold into AEther, but other better counterspells. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Titan Forge and Lux Cannon just seem to be reasons for others to attack you. As they don't help the overall theme of the deck, I'd look to more relevant artifacts like Rings of Brighthearth, Eternity Vessel, Metallic Mimic, Brass Herald, or Door of Destinies.
You've got a very well-designed deck here, in my opinion. And if I end up building Moonfolk, your list is where I'll start. Thanks for putting up with my long comment.

If you run the enchantment clue generators you could run a full set of Polymorph as well, or perhaps Fold into AEther and Summoning Trap?

I have tried to make a deck around Fold into AEther as well. I think Emrakul, the Aeons Torn would be better than the others because it would make you win the game. I used green as well as blue. It allows you to play Sakura-Tribe Elder, Search for Tomorrow, and Mishra's Bauble for a turn three Emrakul.

MTG18, thanks so much for all of your advice, you make some very good points, I appreciate your interest in my deck!

I was definitely on the fence about mainboarding Negate. It is probably a wise decision to put it in the sideboard and go up on the Mana Leaks and Condescends. They are both more consistent after all.

I REALLY like the idea of putting Peer Through Depths into this deck, I think it would definitely work well. The only issue is that the deck looses good card advantage. What draw spells would you recommend? I think this deck really does need Concentrate like cards, though I agree sorcery speed is a bad idea. Perhaps Jace's Ingenuity?

As for Remand I did not choose to put it in this deck, simply due to its cost. I think that it is fairly overrated in the modern format, and I have yet to have problems with my counter arsenal so fer. But I do agree, if you've got the Remands, put them in. They are a strict improvement in many circumstances.

And on the ease of comboing, it is actually VERY simple. I often find myself holding too many combo pieces in my hand, which is why I cut down the creatures. Really hald the cards in the deck help draw and filter though the deck ( Think Twice, Gitaxian Probe, Condescend, Sleight of Hand). All that is needed to combo is Fold into AEther and a creature. The deck has so many cheap spells, that really isn't a problem.

Aggressive discard and sacrifice abilities are worrisome... perhaps some graveyard recursion in cards like Relearn or Archaeomancer?

I really need to do more playtesting to really solidify the deck's strengths and weaknesses.

Thanks for the input!!!

MTG18 on Modern, Turn 4 Leviathan Combo

Hey! I saw this deck and I'm very impressed. I like the combo and I think the deck is very cool. I do have some critiques though. 1st, I think Mana Leak is worth having a playset of, and Negate probably isn't worth a spot in the mainboard. I'd go up to a full 4 Mana Leak and get rid of Negate (or relegate it to the sideboard). With the extra slot I would recommend adding cards to make your combo easier to assemble (maybe a 4th Condescend).

2nd, I'm not sure if Concentrate is a card you want to have, given that it makes you tap out at sorcery speed. Instead I would recommend cards that help you assemble your combo, drawing you the cards you need. Maybe an Anticipate or Peer Through Depths. While card advantage is important, keeping up mana to counter their important stuff is also important. These cards are very versatile and can even get you a counter in a pinch as they essentially cantrip.

Speaking of cantripping counterspells, I feel like Remand could be good in your deck. I run a mono U Tron deck in modern that similarly relies on drawing into its combo, and Remand is an all star for slowing down the opponent and getting your combo online.

On the topic of your combo, it seems very hard to find for your deck. You only have 4 creatures to get, and you need to have one in your hand with no way to tutor. I feel like maybe adding more threats or more deck search would be useful. Also, ways to find Fold into AEther seem like they would be good.

Finally, I'm curious if your deck will be able to beat a deck that has discard in it. It seems like if they get you to discard one of your threats you have no plan B or way to get back into the game other than drawing one of the other 4. Similarly, if they run something that makes you sacrifice a creature you are screwed as well. I'm also not a fan of Orbs of Warding in the sideboard to stop this as it comes down too late to protect you.

These are just my thoughts and I've never played with the deck so take them with a grain of salt.
