What Gidgetimer said.

In addition, you a are just going to help a lot of decks.

Snapcaster Mage, Tarmogoyf, Kolaghan's Command, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Grim Flayer, Gurmag Angler, Past in Flames, Scrap Trawler, Bedlam Reveler, Goryo's Vengeance,Search for Azcanta  Flip, Bloodghast, Flamewake Phoenix, Narcomoeba, Prized Amalgam, Stinkweed Imp

Most of the time, milling people without killing them, is just a helping hand for them.

@Daarkest: You aren't going to get many turn 2 wins in Modern without going Simian Spirit Guide into something like Goryo's Vengeance or Monastery Swiftspear. Again, there's a reason they haven't reprinted anything like Psychatog or Tireless Tribe and it's because those cards lead to a lot early kills.

How about a turn two win? With unlimited money, Mox Opal would make it possible to play a turn one Torgaar: land producing B, three 0-drop creatures, mox, tap for BB, sac and play Torgaar.

Stealing another idea from Affinity, Springleaf Drum could be a turn 1 play giving another way to turn a sacrificial creature into mana.

It looks like the biggest problem is that you're all-in on the Torgaar combo, but you're just not always going to draw Torgaar. I suspect you lose immediately to countermagic and removal is brutal.

Perhaps a reanimator subtheme to get Torgaar out of the yard if it gets countered, removed, or pitched to Faithless Looting? So maybe Goryo's Vengeance...

Very good read! In the graveyard hate section you jokingly mentioned using Goryo's Vengeance to steal their Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Goryo's Vengeance can only target your own graveyard so as hilarious as it would be it cannot be done. I think it is worth mentioning that you can do this with Entering off of a Shelldock Isle. While it isn't very likely to happen, it does provide a main board answer to an opponents main board eldrazi.

I really like the idea of Brisela being your wincon, but your deck isn't set up to support her. Try an Esper build with 4x Thought Scour, 4x Goryo's Vengeance, 4x Collective Brutality. Then you'll be able to slam Briselda down way faster.

well i never said it was "exactly" the same, but its still the same combo. so no its not really like saying "uw is the same as jeskai". you're still using the exact same win condition of Goryo's Vengeance into Borborygmos Enraged/Griselbrand to draw through the deck and turn lands into Lightning Bolt

Goryo's Vengeance being a 50 dollar card, what a world we live in...

Honestly, I think a Primeval Titan + Azusa deck is a bit more up your alley at that budget. Besides Azusa, there is hardly anything very expensive in that deck and by not playing an early game focused black-red deck you avoid 50 dollar Blackcleave Cliffs.

In terms of positioning out of those mentioned, Mardu pyromancer is by far the best of those mentioned, followed by Counters Company and Grishoalbrand.

I love my Grisel Cannon, ENRAGED! deck. Been playing it for a long time, but it's way way over $400 anymore, so many price spikes. I do have a few foils in mine, and tappedout lists it at like $1200.

But it's my baby and I'll keep playing it and updating it with each set.

HOWEVER, Spirit Soul Bomb is a list I invented after streamer Brewspythemagicguy started playing an Esper Goryos list using Iname, and I decided to make it a full combo deck instead of a control style list, and Torgaar, Famine Incarnate from Dominaria sealed the deal on it, with Goryo's Vengeance being the most expensive card in the list, for now.
