Also, the wish sideboard concept is just brilliant. Now, modern Tron can use s colorless wish sideboard with the printing of Karn, the Great Creator . I also put him in my legacy mono red Sneak Attack deck, because I can wish for Blightsteel Colossus , Painter's Servant and then Grindstone , etc. Show and tell uses Cunning Wish for their sideboard, and I've never understood how that card's not banned. I'm pretty sure a red deck used to run Burning Wish in legacy as well, I just haven't seen it around in forever.

Shardless Agent would be cool because Simic is underplayed in Modern. Also cool would be Fire / Ice , and Dack Fayden is long overdue to be in Modern.

And while it’s really my own sick fantasy, I think it’d be dope if we got Grindstone . The Painter's Servant deck seems really weak in Legacy. Would a version without Pyroblast still be too good for Modern? Maybe

I would consider a few of the stronger mill payloads, such as Mind Grind , Fraying Sanity , and Sphinx's Tutelage . A fun combo is Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank for infinite mill and damage. You are also fairly low on removal, and a slow mill deck wants a lot of that. There are the more expensive options like Damnation or Cyclonic Rift , but you seem like you want to stick to a low budget so I would recommend AEtherize or Languish . Phenax, God of Deception is very popular as a mill commander, but is still good in the 99 if you want to stick with Mirko. Counterspells are also very powerful in a deck like this, since you don't care about you're opponents board state much, and Counterspell , Commit / Memory , Foil , Spell Swindle , and Memory Lapse are very good for that role and are pretty cheap to pick up. Grindstone is pretty expensive, but can kill a mono-color deck very quickly if your play group has a lot of that.

Grindstone and Painter's Servant combo can mill an opponents whole deck turn 3.

Haha, this is nearly IDENTICAL to my first ever EDH deck, so I definitely have suggestions that I learned by playing it.

Unless you're doing it explicitly for fun, I'd reduce the number of big-mana spells that don't work with your theme, or can be easily worked around. Stuff like Magus of the Mirror is a prime example, since it extremely niche, and quite costly for an easily-removed do-nothing. On the whole, your creature curve is VERY high, besides some piddly card draw attackers, where something like Thassa, God of the Sea is more effective than Vela or Scion.

I would also avoid discard as a mill tactic, since opponents usually just discard land or artifacts to get around your recursion. Sphinx's Tutelage and Grindstone are some options for much faster, better costed, and more powerful graveyard filling. I would possibly add the combo of Phenax, God of Deception and Eater of the Dead for a janky win, if you are in a creature-heavy playgroup!

If you're going competitive you should have All the best possible mana rocks and lands like I mentioned above. After that look into shifting the total CMC down. Anything more expensive than 3 CMC needs to have a very powerful effect.

Looking at your list I would remove every single 4+ drop if you're going this route.

As far as combos you're kind of limited in BW, the prices of these pieces are all over the place, some cheap, some prohibitively expensive:

OK, that was a lot! Hope this put you in the right direction.

hungry000 I will be updating this deck soon, I'm just really busy.

About the question of mono-black decks - The Grindstone kill still works, but our opponent will likely have removal. Thus, the inclusion of Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon will hopefully disrupt our opponent, but frankly, if they're playing mono black then the mana tax is still annoying and even if they only have basic swamps we can still use Grindstone. Can you give me some mono black Legacy decks which are currently in the format, and I will test against them? Thanks.

Gattison Thank you for the clarification.
eyes2sky Thank you for the positive comment!
