At this point, are we actually discussing what's best for MODERN as a format, or are we discussing how to create Legacy-lite?
Let me ask you this question: What modern deck do you get to play with a lifted banlist that you CAN'T play at all with the banlist in place? Stoneblade? Dredge exists, Show and Tell turned into breach, twin turned into kiki-combo, Pod became CoCo/Eldritch evolution, eldrazi exists both as eldrazi aggro and as tron, miracles becaume U/W control, elves, storm, affinity, lands, B/G/x, THESE DECKS ALL EXIST IN MODERN alongside a plethora of other decks.
Modern isn't broken. It's healthy, it's diverse, check out the SCG Columbus team modern tournament from January. One team brought Haakon, Stromgald Scourge decks AND WENT 6/3, almost making day 2...
Why would anyone want to change this format? It's never going to be as diverse as a 100 card singleton format like canlander, but it's way more diverse than legacy is and there's plenty of cool cards to play with. Legacy exists for those who really want to play with cool legacy cards... but modern is NOT legacy lite. It's modern.

I love modern gifts, probably my favorite deck out there.
Also: you need as many functionally identical cards as possible so you can force stuff through with gifts. This means it would probably be preferable to switch out 2 of your 3 mana leaks for other 2 cost counterspells like Negate and Remand. This lets you go for all three counterspells and a snapcaster in case you really want to counter something. Furthermore, I would reccomend varying your destroy spells; switch out an abrupt decay for an Assassin's Trophy, switch out a path for Dismember, etc
Also: I personally think Collective Brutality is a must, since it gains back all the life you lose from fetch-shocking and it lets you discard your reanimator targets. However, a lot of people disagree with me, so it might not be the best choice.
Finally: since you are playing cryptic command, maybe consider Eternal Witness so you can create a cryptic loop and stall a bit

I live 4c color gifts! It’s probably my favorite deck. I have a few suggestions and actually a few questions about whether certain cards are viable.
1: where’s the Raven's Crime + Life from the Loam lockdown? Gifts for raven, LftL, Urborg for a black source, and a random land. Then you can cast raven’s crime up to 3 times a turn. I’ve seen it used a lot in this deck
2: in my experience, it’s more useful for gifts control to have destroy rather than early discard. I would recommend maybe not having the TK and IoK and instead add stuff like Dismember
4: I’ve found Slaughter Pact to be super useful if you have to tap out for gifts
5: Batterskull or Wurmcoil Engine in combination with Academy Ruins and life from the loam is a finisher I’ve seen a lot in these decks. The lifegain can be SUPER useful against decks like humans/spirits to disincentivize attacking
6: I personally play both Iona and elesh mainboard for a more diverse reanimate package, and I play Platinum Emperion sideboard
7: do you think Crucible of Worlds could be any good?

Nameless Inversion can be repeatedly cast from the graveyard with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge on the battlefield. If both are in your graveyard you can just cast Haakon and then mow down as many things as you can pay for.

Hey man, thanks a lot for the suggestions. As for Midnight Reaper and Kinsbaile Cavalier I feel like with 10 cards above CMC 2 that are all important to the deck (Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Knight Exemplar, and Crib Swap), it wouldn't have room for more. It's kind of the same issue with Altar's Reap, there wasn't a ton of good CMC 1 cards for this list so it's got a lot of CMC 2 cards, and the value of those has to be really high to balance things out.
No data for this card yet.
