Rinzl3r FNM isn't tourney so don't talk like that then. But remember that people still play lot of meta decks in fnm:s too.

Cut Forbidden Alchemys and play Thought Scours much more mana efficient.

Cut Naturalize from sideboard and play Nature's Claims. Mind Control Out and play Tormod's Crypt, you need gravehate.

If you want to get seriously good cards cut Acidic Slimes, Merfolk Looters, Viridian Emissarys and Llanowar Elves. None of those creatures are like actually good.

Then play stuff like Scavenging Ooze, Tireless Tracker, Birds of Paradise, Courser of Kruphix, maybe even Merfolk Branchwalker.

And sure you would need better land base. 4 of Yavimaya Coast and Hinterland Harbor would do.

But as i always say, you can play literally anything in fnm.

Skullclamp is helaas gebanned in modern, Mask of Memory is misschien een goede vervanging. Andere kaarten:

@mean_green_machine, the main reason I run Basilica Screechers over more Mourning Thrulls is for the Extort, which can help get that bit of reach you sometimes need. Another reason is because they don't die to Electrickery and other 1 damage sweepers. Considering the current meta, I think that's pretty important.

Beckon Apparition I've really liked for a few good matchups. Against Reanimator, you shut down their main gameplan. Against Stompy, Aristocrats, or similar decks, Undying creatures lose most of their value. Against Control, key flashback cards get neutered, such as Mystical Teachings or Forbidden Alchemy. Not to mention, the token is a flier and both white and black, so good for Edge of the Divinity.

I've been considering Castigate for a while now, but I'm just running the list as is while the meta is how it is now.

Thanks so much for your feedback and suggestions!! :)

Forbidden Alchemy would provide quite a bit of value for only a few card slots. You get to go 4 deep, pick the answer or threat you need, then you can flashback it later. All instant speed, in case you need that answer ASAP.

Hi,

your deck is very exciting! These two cards come to my mind:

Bitter Revelation for Succumb to TemptationBoth are Sorcery Speed, draw 2 cards for 2 life, but Bitter Revelation fills up your graveyard.

Forbidden Alchemy for Strategic PlanningIt has the benefits of instant speed, digging/discarding one card more and has flashback.

Also, I very much enjoyed reading your articles on pdhhomebase! You guys do a great job!

If I may be so bold to express a wish; Personally I would love to know you perspective on an Izzet deck, preferrably with with similar puzzling trickiness like the Tog - maybe Gelectrode or one of the Guildmages... Do you think that might be a possible deck tech for your website?
