I am no expert, but removal wise you might want to check Go for the Throat and Doom Blade. They aren't Dismember or Fatal Push, but they should be less expensive. (I can't see the prices on mobile)

Languish is very good too, I'm not sure if it's expensive though.

Besides that I honestly don't know. Casting Bolas in Modern without ramp would require some gooc control, but control is expensive. Hopefully that knows his stuff can help you better than I do.

I think im going make room for Go for the Throat for now, maybe a Maelstrom Pulse that way I have something that can answer big guys.

Replace Grisly Spectacle and Murder with Go for the Throat and Terminate. Both are under $1 each. Lower CMC and don't put cards into a graveyard (lots of decks don't mind this or actively desire it)

What about Murderous Cut? What do u guys think of that compared to Go for the Throat

Also, I dont really see Drown in Sorrow being usefull in that matchup. Id be paying 3 mana to kill 1 arbor elf, 2 if Im lucky. It would be worth ot to kill 2 but I cant count on that happening

It's part of this current shitty meta that Eldrazi brought. Basically, Ponzu, D&T, Eldrazi, Tron, & Humans, & Aggro. Midrange is in a really bad position right now. Nothing worse than playing against Ponzu on the draw when they T2 kill your T1 land, followed by a T3 Acid Moss again killing your only land.

In your deck I would definitely add an answer or 2 capable of dealing with Primeval Titan and Inferno Titan. Probably go down 1 on the Remand and 1 Collective Brutality for a Go for the Throat or 2. Maybe cut a Spellskite or 2 for additional Fatal Pushes (MB) or an Abrupt Decay.

Consider cutting IoK or the 2nd Thrun from your sideboard for a single Back to Nature and Drown in Sorrow (forget the name of the colorless one)
