Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue

Deathtouch

When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

the only card that isnt in the deck already above is Gonti, Lord of Luxury but the card is still in my physical deck atm. i do have Clever Impersonator in the deck as well as Body Double. those two clones and Phyrexian Metamorph and Stunt Double go in all my blue decks they are too powerful of clones not to have but that my opinion. Merchant of Secrets and Skyscanner are fillers right now because i dont know if i want to run Turnabout and Pull from Tomorrow yet

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is one of the strongest ETB effects in black. Also, Altar of the Brood goes infinite with Aminatou and Felidar Guardian, making it a must-have. Clever Impersonator seems to be an upgrade over Body Double. Merchant of Secrets and Skyscanner seem to low impact in my opinion.

It's just so hard to find the sideboard slots in a deck like this in Modern. There are too many werewolves and not enough silver bullets. A personal problem I have with Collective Brutality on the side is that it's sort of a grindy value card (unless you're using it for Reanimator shenanigans on the discard) so it's harder for me to evaluate when exactly to side it in than a "shoot you in between the eyes" type card. Obviously CB comes in against burn because CB wrecks burn, but beyond that.... It's hard to cut the silver bullets. Maybe when Dredge goes away again and the Leyline of the Void can go away, that's eating up a huge chunk of sideboard on its own. I guess the Surgical Extraction isn't as necessary if I have such strong graveyard hate, but Surgical Extraction can also be good against combo decks if you Thoughtseize their key piece and then extract it out of the game.

I did end up adding Gonti, Lord of Luxury if for no other reason than that I want 4 4-drops to come in for the Bloodbraid Elf in the rare instances where Bloodbraid Elf is bad.

Not a bad idea. I like having a mix of 4 drops on the side that can come in for Bloodbraid Elf. Right now I only have 3, an Obstinate Baloth for Burning Inquiry decks and Liliana of the Veil mirrors, a Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip for grindy matches, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for additional graveyard hate. They all also gain life. Gonti, Lord of Luxury would fill a somewhat similar role, but would probably be better against Jeskai or Dimir style control. Hitting a Jace, the Mind Sculptor with him would be awesome.

Thoughtseize and Gonti, Lord of Luxury could be good additions.

I try to stuck away from broken or infinite combos like that; I just added Duskmantle Guildmage for the combo with Mindcrank, but, I'm trying to stay away from lots of surefire combos; I like the randomness and long gameplay of EDH, so combos that can end things really quickly don't appeal too muhh to me.

Startled Awake  Flip has been very effective, and pulling it in and out of the graveyard is oh-so-very satisfying. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is also super awesome, and on the same note, Thief of Sanity is just as sweet; I'd say I like thief even more, cuz he puts the rest of the cards in the graveyard, which is much easier to go grab those cards back out of than their library.

Madcookie on Does Nicol Bolas, the Ravager ...

If you were to activate Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip's ability after it has been returned to the battlefield with Isareth the Awakener (note the corpse counter is just a reminder, even if you remove it the exile clause still applies) you would simply exile it and nothing will happen. Order is this:

1.Isareth the Awakener attacks, you pay 4 mana and return Bolas with corpse counter from your graveyard.

2.Second main you pay 4 and activate Bolas' ability. He is about to get exiled as part of resolution of the said ability that transforms him, and Isareth the Awakener's reanimate clause detects this and exiles it permanently instead because it is a replacement effect to anything that wants to remove the marked permanent from the battlefield.

Also just to put it out there double-cfaced cards are always considered to be face-up in all zones, unless otherwise specified (exiling or putting a card on the battlefield face-down would place it face-up instead (Ixidron, Gonti, Lord of Luxury etc) and if that were to happen to Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip he'd die as a state-based effect from having 0 loyalty on his planeswalker side if he was on the battlefield)
