Heartless Summoning Discussion

I feel like this needs either a bigger removal suite or some combo tools. Heartless Summoning is a nice start, but cloud key and a grinding station is a victory with RIP. Ok, so perhaps a few too many moving parts- I'm sure there are some sacrifice effects and so on that can be used. Knowledge Pool and old teferi lock your opponent out of the game. Shred Memory is an exile enabler that can search out combo pieces. Snapback and cards like it exist.

Personally, a hand disruption suite would be my go-to with this. You have black, a bunch of duress will pull a lot of wieght.

Gemstone Caverns is worth a look.

Heartless Summoning makes Pack Rat cost ...and it instantly dies...

+1 for the big frogger!

Could Grisly Salvage be run? It is an instant compared to Commune with the Gods, yet can't find Heartless Summoning, up to you! Crop Sigil isn't bad either, if you want the self-mill!

Neat deck! I like the idea, and I always like any unique ideas using the Urza lands.

Black has amazing discard, and is tremendously effective, taking out threats before they become a problem, and decimate mulliganed hands. There's a reason nearly every Modern deck

I'm not sure why you have so many sweepers, though. 2 Oblivion Stones, an All Is Dust, AND a Bontu's Last Reckoning seems like a little too much. I'd switch Bontu's Last Reckoning out.

I'm interested to hear your reasoning behind Scour from Existence, Basilisk Collar, and The Immortal Sun.

Finally, as cute as they are, both functionally and literally, I don't see the Eldrazi Mimics being that effective. At least, no more than a variety of other choices for the slot, such as Chalice of the Void, Thorn of Amethyst, Heartless Summoning, etc.

Your deck would work fine in a standard setting, but in modern you'll likely get run over. In modern, your average deck should be able to win by turn 4 or be capable of stalling effectively until you can win. Dinosaurs in general are just too slow, and really only the most expensive dinos are playable in modern, like Ripjaw and Carnage Tyrant (and only just barely). It would be best to find a different deck. What colors do you want to play in, and what type of deck do you want to play?

If you really want to play dinos tho, you can try going Bx and use Heartless Summoning to cheat some dinos out early.

Nah, Heartless summonings may kill Snapcaster Mage, but it's ETB still triggers, so it is all good there. Doomwake Giant is a 5 mana Languish best case scenario, if anyone cares, they will just remove him with a Nature's Claim or Swords to Plowshares.

On another note Mesa Enchantress gives little value outside of a Sram, Senior Artificer or Kor Spiritdancer for an extra mana, and we don't need the effects a ton.

No Mesa Enchantress or Doomwake Giant? Seem like reasonable options. Also, Idyllic Tutor seems like a good option for additional tutors.

Heartless Summoning seems a little bad here with Chromium. If you ever pitch a card to give it Hexproof and Chromium isn't suited up, it just dies to Heartless Summoning. It also kills your Snapcaster Mage when it enters.

As Foretold also seems like a decent enchantment. Along with Ghostly Prison and Propaganda since you are not running any board wipes, you need some sort of protection. A board wipe that you can use that doesn't affect your board is Settle the Wreckage or AEtherspouts.
