Holy Day Discussion
4 days ago
Mark Rosewater has even commented on this issue on his Tumblr account, saying that white did not need such effects, an assertion with which I disagree, since green is a much more aggressive color than white, which is a very controlling color.
What does everyone else say about this? Why has mass damage prevention returned to green?

So as a fellow player of Renegade Freighter I'm happy to call this one of the coolest new takes on the idea for vehicles. The exalted really helps push damage through and you seem pretty capable of being a real threat even without vehicles. Mobile Garrison is also intersting as it help defend, but I feel as though it could be a dead card if you already have a Frieghter out and attacking, but whether you agree or not with that is fine.
However I'd say that you should think about Kami of False Hope or Holy Day instead of Fog in the sideboard as you seem to have more white than green mana sources. Additionally I would run either Natural State or Fragmentize over Caustic Caterpillar unless you want to keep the creature to help crew vehicles. Also I would consider a few other ideas:
Sideboard Change Reccomendations: 2 Holy Day or Kami of False Hope, 2 Fragmentize or Natural State, 2 Gods Willing or Benevolent Bodyguard or Apostle's Blessing, 3 Mana Leak or Dispell or Vapor Snag, 3 Spell Pierce, 3 Life Goes On,
Mana Leak is a good card, but if your using three colours you'll probably want to use as efficent spells as possible such as Dispell; and Vapor Snag is also a good way to stop irritating creatures and is a favorite of mine but Mana leak is still good so keep it if you like it. But mana efficency is also why I reccomend Apostle's Blessing as it can cast with any colour; and as a side note Benevolent Bodyguard can crew vehicles which is relevent, which is also applicable to my recomendation for Kami of False Hope.
I know this may seem like a lot of stuff to reccomend but I love your deck concept and I'd love to see it improve! Cheers and have fun out there!

This list has helped me improve my Esper Mill so thank you! I really like use of Ethereal Haze rather than Darkness or Holy Day! I may also end stealing the Fragmentize, although I may stick with my Disenchants for the instant speed. The only suggestion I have is one recently made to me which is maybe some Mission Briefing for the Archive Trap recasts. Really cool deck though!

Seems dece. 3 things though.
I don't like 4x Holy Day in an aggro deck.
I think Norin the Wary just to trigger Champ/Leutenant is a bit too cute.
Having no copies of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben probably make you too weak vs Combo decks.

Also Holy Day is a cheap alternative.

Do you think maybe mono white would be more effective? Drop Rites of Flourishing in favor of Temple Bell or Mikokoro, Center of the Sea/Geier Reach Sanitarium...and swap the green fogs in for Ethereal Haze/Holy Day or Angelsong.
Reliquary Tower is another tool to use for stocking up on answers for resolved threats like Oblivion Ring/Wrath of God.... in addition to Luminarch Ascension perhaps Drawing into Urzatron lands to hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn could probably happen faster than drawing out the opponents library?

Hey Loeffner, I have put together a few decklists for you here on tappedout, keeping in mind what you have said. I don't know how much more cheaper I can make some of these though without compromising their strategies, but I will leave that up to you to decide.
In fact this first one is the Second Sun Control challenger deck that Wizards put out for sale a few months ago, in fact I play a more expensive version of this deck in standard currently. It could be a good starting point.

Here is another control deck except this one's a little different because the goal is to mill your opponent(s). It plays a lot of fog effects like Holy Day to stall attacks against you. I won't take credit for this one either as it's originally a budget magic deck posted by SaffronOlive over at mtggoldfish, however I have made numerous changes to the deck that have made it closer to your price range. (Note there's a number of cards that I left to the side as potential changes you could make to the list).

Next is another mill deck, but this one is different again by playing bounce spells like Engulf the Shore, Blink of an Eye etc alongside again Sphinx's Tutelage (It's cheaper than the above list even after the cuts, but I don't think it would fair as well against aggressive decks tbh). I use to play a casual standard deck like this one once in standard, but if I recall I had a few other things in the deck such as Thing in the Ice Flip and Manic Scribe?

All of this I put together in the span of like 30 minutes and they lack sideboards atm. They all could maybe use some more changes, but I think they are a decent start to what you maybe had in mind. I think if any, you should go for either the Approach of the Second Sun challenger deck or the turbo fog deck listed above out of all of these and you can make more changes as you see fit from there. I hope some of this is of use anyways!

isochron is not really a good card in modern. as you would devote one turn to cast it and wait another turn to use it unless you have enough mana available..
the only thing i think isochron is good is if you have a prison style deck with it..
