Horizon Canopy Discussion

That's certainly something to consider. The Deed also hits my own equipment from Stoneforge Mystic unless it's a Batterskull, which is why I'm hesitant to maindeck it. Pernicious Deed works a lot better in decks that are trying to ramp into Thragtusk and such. Card selection in a midrange deck like this can get a little tricky because of the balance between synergy and power. Obviously slamming Deed would be an argument in favor of "power", but then the question is whether it's worth the cost in synergy. Same with Toxic Deluge, but with Empty the Warrens so big right now I feel like a sweeper maindeck is relevant. Definitely something for me to think about though.
The mana is a little weird, but it works. I do it more often in Modern, but I'm not scared to throw down a filterland or even a check or fastland if it fits. Being able to cast Hymn to Tourach off a turn 1 Horizon Canopy or Dryad Arbor can be a big surprise too, and they often aren't expecting the hymn when they see the non-black source turn 1.

I think you need to slim down your sideboard. Pick the matchups you have the hardest time against, and then work from there. When I played boggles, I had 4 slots for affinity, 3 for living end, and 2 Sigarda, Host of Herons
Dryad Arbor is a must for this deck. Being able to crack a fetchland for one to take a sacrifice effect, or surprise block is what helps this deck steal wins.
If you really want to throw your opponents for a loop, put in Open the Armory to tutor up exactly the aura you need to win the game. I only tried with 3 copies of it, but it can shore up some inconsistencies you'll have from not being able to budget in Horizon Canopy

I think 3 copies of Eiganjo Castle isn't really necessary, it will more often hurt you than help you as it is legendary.
I'm a little iffy on the equipment package. While it is a cool idea, modern isn't as friendly to it as legacy is.
I would also recommend Blade Splicer. This card is incredible with Flickerwisp and is one of your best cards against Affinity (Etched Champion) and midrange decks. Maybe cut the Mentor of the Meek (they seem a little slow and don't provide any hate, and you could potentially get Horizon Canopy to help keep up the card advantage).
Mangara of Corondor is a cool card, but how often will you be bringing it in? Is it to combat Eldrazi?
Good luck with the build!

Thanks, man: people don't tend to think of voltron decks as being competitive, so that's why a labeled it as a casual deck.
The main reason I like Holy Mantle is because it offers evasion, and I feel like that's arguably the most important type of enchantment, but if I replace it with Stranglehold that brings me down to 18 auras, which is a little scary, and if I remove Snake Umbra, that leaves me with just 17 auras, compared to the 19 that you have. You sure that's not too low? Also, by adding Stranglehold, should I just scrap Aven Mindcensor?
At the very least I need Replenish, but I don't mind getting rid of Retether and replacing it with Regrowth. Board wipes aren't so bad during the early goings, but I tend to get focused because of how powerful Uril, The Mistalker gets in such a short period of time.
I don't have copies of Grove of the Burnwillows or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, but I have City of Brass, Mana Confluence and Horizon Canopy. The additional fetch lands are cool, but given how few basics I would have and the fact that I'd be limited to fetching only one type of basic is a concern.
I'm completely at ease with most of your suggestions: my only worries are decreasing the total number of auras in my deck and acquiring those off-color fetch lands, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

I'm a big fan of the update, the deck has come a long way. However there still are a few things that I think would make the deck better still:
Rounding out the curve so that it has the look of a descending staircase. To do this we need to replace a 3-drop with either a 1-, 2-, or 4-drop. Snake Umbra is definitely the weakest 3-drop.
Holy Mantle could still probably be replaced. I still find this card to be really unimpressive at 4 mana.
Lastly, Grasp of Fate is still missing. This card is really hard to pass up.
I don't want this to get lost in translation over multiple posts so I'll try to fix the curve and you can either agree or disagree with my adjustments...
You mentioned getting rid of the color fixing enchants like Abundant Growth and Unbridled Growth, but those are there for multiple reasons. They add to enchantment count (for both Ancestral Mask & Ethereal Armor), can filter and/or draw cards, and provide early game fixing. There is not really a need to remove them as they actually do more than you think.
The lands that I suggested were...Grove of the Burnwillows, Horizon Canopy, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, more fetches, and Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers. They will be better than the speed lands and with the replacement of more basic lands, better than the check lands as well. I definitely would not get rid of all your basics though.
My suggestion for your ideal land base would be...
1x Ancient Tomb
1x Arid Mesa
1x Marsh Flats
I also love that you have this deck tagged as "casual," this deck is a far cry from casual. Lol

You could also probably benefit from including these in addition to original duals in your mana base: Grove of the Burnwillows, Horizon Canopy, Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, and more fetches.
A lot of the aforementioned duals are at the very least better options than the speed lands and with the addition of more non-basics probably the check lands too.
