twistedmage In fairness the Griselbrand ban was obvious as he is stupidly powerful in the format where as neither Iona or Engine strike me as broken on their own.

I agree with Nic that there are a lot of cards that will be very hard to cast in a Modern tournament. I have been away from Modern for a while, but from what I am understanding is that the format is getting faster. Games usually are over by turns 3-5 depending on what you are playing against. Some decks and get a lot of power on the board too fast for you to handle and others pick apart your hand and you then cannot respond to their one big threat. So your 6+ drops will probably never be played.

Cards I would take out are Blackblade Reforged , Demonlord Belzenlok , Drakuseth, Maw of Flames , and Feather, the Redeemed . Blackblade will be too slow, Bel and Drak are going to be too expensive, and Feather really needs spells that targets her to be effective. You can keep the higher mana cost creatures, but you need to find some way to cheat them onto the battlefield. For example, Goryo's Vengeance , and those decks Griselbrand is usually the best option.

I think you deck may be able to work if you do a bit of a controlling build with hand disruption from Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek as well as looting a a little graveyard recursion from Faithless Looting and Unearth .

Perhaps something where you focus on Resplendent Angel and Kaalia, Zenith Seeker as your targets for Unearth then have th 2x of Seraph of the Scales and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice as other side threats. I think Lyra Dawnbringer is a good 2 of in the sideboard for the burn matchup and other aggressive decks. You can try Bishop of Wings for a blocker, but not sure how well it will work in modern. I think x3-4 Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek would be good along with x4 Faithless Looting and Unearth . I am not sure what that leaves you with after all the subtractions and additions. I do like the Paths, Bolts, and Helix in the deck. You may like having x3 Paths and Bolts while using Helix as a sideboard card for aggressive matchups again. Just a few ideas for you. Not trying to re-create your entire deck as I want you to stick with your angels theme, but trying to make sure you do not get steamrolled by the more powerful decks in the format.

One of my favorite combos that could work very well with this is Archfiend of Ifnir + Sire Of Insanity . It can turn The Scorpion God into a Griselbrand level draw engine for one turn while simultaneously wiping your opponents board.

I think Dark Withering is a fine card for this. It depends on your metagame, but black creatures are underrepresented in competitive modern: Death's Shadow , Gurmag Angler and Dark Confidant are the only creatures out of the top 50 most played where "nonblack" will be an issue. This, arguably makes it as good as Fatal Push .

And yes, I'm not counting Street Wraith , Bloodghast and Griselbrand , because nobody would Fatal Push those anyway.

When you can play 5+ copies of each card, there's about a million different ways to win on turn one. For example:

Simian Spirit Guide -> Simian Spirit Guide -> Surging Flame -> flip over 40 other Surging Flame s.

Simian Spirit Guide -> Rite of Flame -> Rite of Flame -> Manamorphose -> rinse and repeat for near-infinite mana, cards, and storm count.

Dark Ritual -> Dark Ritual -> Entomb -> Animate Dead -> Griselbrand -> repeat Dark Ritual -> Entomb -> Animate Dead until you get whatever amount of whatever creature(s) you want.

Grim Monolith s and/or Mana Vault s to power out an early Emrakul, the Aeons Torn .

Even if you make the format Standard-only, you'd still have people doing bullshit like making a deck with nothing but Viashino Pyromancer s, Ghitu Lavarunner s, Wizard's Lightning s, and Mountain s for guaranteed turn 3 or 4 kills. There's a reason there's a limit of 4 copies. Without it, you end up with either a format that's decided by the coin flip or a banlist longer than the dictionary.

I mean Griselbrand seems pretty good any of the gear hulks or titans. Wood Elves for the ramp
