I have found Gifts Ungiven to be incredibly helpful for getting cards to both hand and graveyard. They also have the land fetch equivalent of Realms Uncharted

No Detention Sphere? I always thought Esper did best with a Gifts Ungiven shell. Have you ever tried Jotun Grunt over Glory-Bound Initiate?

Thank you so much cubemaster123. Ive had a busy week so Im sorry for taking forever to get back to you. I already had Omen Machine in the beck but Thought Reflection is definly a good add as well as Coalition Relic. I also Im adding Gamble, Fabricate, and Gifts Ungiven. I still unsure of Cyclonic Rift tough.

Claim / Fame is good with cards like Eidolon of the Great Revel, os i would not call it a single use, card that does nothing without vexing devil. ITs bad against token decks, i agree, and its weak agaisnt decks that run walls biggerr than Wall of Omens, however to say the least such decks are a very minor part of the meta. (And things like storm giving up Goblin Electromancer to chump vexing devil is not something you should have a problem with)
A more realistic fail mode would be being blocked by a hollow one, and making the opponent's clock worse.

Last time i read Gifts Ungiven it said "target opponent chooses two cards...", that for some strange reason literally says the

Most (if not all) modern decks can't deal with a turn 1 4/3, so of course they will pay 4 life, or use a removal spell. And then Vexing Devil is "bad". However outside soul sisters & martyr proc not many decks can deal with multiple vexing devils. Claim / Fame is essentially an extra copy. To put it in more simple terms, you have the choice between a turn 1 4/3 or a turn 2 4/3 & 4 damage to the face, both are devastating.

Its not a problem if the opponent gets to decide what they want, the problem comes if you offer them a choice that they would like to take - which is why dedicated Gifts Ungiven (like storm) are great.

And the same principle applies regardless if the deck is aggro or something enirely different (if you disagre, i am perfectly willing to alter my opinion, but please give me a reason to do so, instead of simply declaring cards "bad", and strategies "wrong").


There is no such thing as a card being "too slow for modern". When bomat courier is played its played because it allows you to abuse Wheel of Fate effects as it can exile important cards, you don't want to discard, and give you a CHANCE to recover them (which is strictly better, than not having the ability to get them back at all). Its a slow creature for sure, but its not meant to be a good agressive creature, its meant to be a way to play around random discard effects, by putting key cards under it, and getting them back when the coast is clear.

(P.s.: Modern has cards that are "too slow" like Part the Waterveil, going into quarterfinals of GPs)

I like the concept here. Goblin Electromancer would help a lot, his ability reduces the flashback cost. Another one would be Curious Homunculus  Flip. He makes a great beater for you. Perhaps Gifts Ungiven, searching for 4 cards with flashback means that you get lots of value no matter what they choose. good looking deck that has potential. +1
