This deck desperately needs some land destruction but with triple white demands and only 20 lands I'm hesitant to add colorless mana.

Timely Reinforcements is beastly, certainly not planning on cutting it. I am contemplating swapping Ensnaring Bridge for some Gideon of the Trials though; since they both kind of fill the same roll but Gideon of the Trials offers some other value. ...and this deck is all about value.

Field of Ruin, possibly up to x4. Gideon of the Trials in place of a couple Timely Reinforcements?

Why do you run Bontu's Last Reckoning in the main?

I know your deck is a vampire deck. Maybe 2x Gideon of the Trials in the main and 2x Gideon's Intervention in the side could be utilized in your deck build.

@mindness I would suggest Aetherflux Reservoir maybe some Gideon of the Trials. In the sideboard I woulld definately throw some Crook of Condemnation, Negate, Baffling End. I also think green has some great lifegain tools for the mid game if you are looking to make it to approach. Gift of Paradise, Hour of Promise puts up blockers, Nissa, Nature's Artisan I would only run one copy of that if any, but at that point you would probably want Nissa, Vital Force. Tendershoot Dryad makes tokens.

Wonderine Thanks for your comment.

For me, the deck run as a midrange. I use Relentless Raptor and Needletooth Raptor to deal with the first enemy creatures.

I try to quickly cast Treasure Map  Flip to scry at each turn and obtain a draw option to not be on a topdeck situation. And the 3 treasure can also help me to cast Zetalpa, Primal Dawn.

Gideon of the Trials Is here because of his polyvalence, good protection against damage and the emblem can be used on a combo with my Axis of Mortality

Here's what i do with this deck for the moment.

The HUB help get green mana yes, and another type if i'm in need of red or white on starting game.

Basically i used to have at least 3 copy of Kinjalli's Caller and 2 of Otepec Huntmaster but it feel not that great..maybe i should try with less copy.

Gideon of the Trials might be the better Gideon here, and there are some Modern creatures like Vexing Devil that will let you damage opponents early or get a great creature for crewing.

Champion of the Parish, Thraben Inspector, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Grand Abolisher, and Thalia's Lieutenant would give you a humans sub-theme making Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial possible inclusions, as well. It's probably more important in mod Modern that you have hate bears (creatures with tax effects) that limit your opponents instead of creatures that pump your vehicles. You need to slow down the pace of play to make your vehicles impactful. Monastery Swiftspear would also be a cool inclusion since you could trigger Prowess off of casting artifacts to help it crew larger vehicles.

You should also run Path to Exile and/or Lightning Bolt for early removal and maybe Faithless Looting for draw. Consider ditching the Gearhulks.

If you play a creature list with more hate bears, you definitely want something like Oblivion Ring or Shatterstorm in the sideboard to fight off Chalice of the Void on 1 and 2 because Disenchant and Ancient Grudge will get beat by Chalice, too.

Have fun with the vehicles!

Gideon of the Trials might be good here.

I love this deck. It seems like a great B/W control deck, but my recommendation is to add Censor and maybe The Immortal Sun to make your creatures bigger, and draw some more cards. Even though The Immortal Sun might destroy Gideon of the Trials, it seems like it will still help this deck most of the time. Also, a Fumigate seems like a good board wipe in this deck. At least sideboard it? Great deck though.
