I agree with the Liliana of the Veil pick But idk who is a good replacement. Maybe Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip?. Lili seems off with this type of style. As for Maelstrom Pulse and Damnation those are usually situational cards and usually have 1. Damnation usually is in sideboard but I feel it fits in main here. In replace of these I would grab a 4th Fatal Push and a 4th Inquisition of Kozilek. When it comes to your lands I think running 4x Blooming Marsh. These benefit you because they are immediately playable if you have them in starting hand. I personally love cards like Thragtusk and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for life gain but with Kalitas you get tokens and pump him up, Especially since you have kills spells! As for Cryptic Command I feel it costs too much but I'm not an expert on blue lol. hope this may be a bit helpful as well! I run a Jund modern and am still slightly new to modern but I love it so far! I also enjoy this style because it's different.

I was curious about that strategy. I was just playing straight up; Swing, drop land, drop creature, pass turn. I was given the advice to watch out for Yahenni's Expertise and Baral's Expertise. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Heart of Kiran Ob Nixilis Reignited and Jace, the Mind Sculptor were pretty hard on the deck too. Heart is the only card I had an answer to. Control draws so many cards they could get all the answers, and my deck only has clues to help my hand. I wish I could play 6 copies of Blessed Alliance and Decommission lol. I often have to play 2 on the stack because of counter spells wrecking the first one played.

With a few tweaks and a decent pilot I think tribal decks can do OK at FNM. I did beat the Ally Tribal and an Elf tribal played by newer players. So at least I won the matches I should have won. I'm pretty new to MTG too so a lot of times I see decks for the first time at FNM.

You can cut one of our several "steal this from their graveyard" effects for the Massacre Wurm. Consider also Liliana, the Last Hope as another way to get back creatures from the graveyard to take advantage of your many powerful enters-the-battlefield effects. If you're having issues with not being able to exile opposing threats, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is perhaps the easiest solution.

Drag0nDude I originally had Asylum Visitor in the deck but I ended up taking too much damage too often and ended up taking it out. I have been considering putting Falkenrath Gorger back in, but only two opposed to the three I originally had. I agree with the synergy of Voldaren Pariah  Flip but she's mainly in because of Flying, and I only transform her when I have zombies from Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet but it does make more sense for her to be in the side deck for when I need the flying than when in the main deck. So I may exchange the two.

not sure how your gaining life from the combo, but i would recommend Drana, Liberator of Malakir to be a little more threatening precombo

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet could make good use of all them vamps, or even a couple Blood Artist in case of boardwipe

you are right about jace but the flash of snapy saved me many times. I tried a Kalitas list before and it was pretty good. I didn't keep it because i wanted more classic control spells on the deck. My idea was to play T4 spells on T3 beacause casting a Kalitas on T4 against fast aggro decks maybe could save the match. So i made a list with Talisman of Dominance Talisman of Indulgence Dimir Signet and Izzet Signet. With that combination i was able to cast Damnation Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Cryptic Command on T3 saving the day against heavy creature decks and burn. If any1 interested i could post the list here.

you should cut goblin dark dwellers, it has a very high cmc and causes you to have a lot of cards stranded in hand, you'd probably want 25 lands (so turn 2 goblins into lands), and then you have room for another Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (because kalitas will be targeted immediately after you cast it, so you want more), I'd say cut nahiri for another gideon and another Chandra, you already have nixilis and Sorin for removal, and you already have good sideboard plans so nahiri can end up not doing much per game besides getting you cards (ob nixilis can do that as well, and chandra gives some card advantage).

Well if budget wasn't an issue, you would fill it in like this. Rock 2017 (this is my IRL deck btw)

Scavenging Ooze is really good and cheap right now.

Hooting Mandrills isn't too bad considering you can Delve it into play

Kitchen Finks is solid and almost always a 2-1.

Glissa, the Traitor could be a decent 1 of. She can kill pretty much anything.

Asylum Visitor is a decent Dark Confidant substitute.

Oona's Prowler has a decent body and Nantuko Shade is flexible.

Ideally you're curve would be T1 Thoughtseize/Fatal Push, T2 Dark Confidant/Abrupt Decay, T3 Liliana of the Veil. So just keep your creatures converted mana cost as low to the ground as possible. 1 Thrun, the Last Troll or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or other 4 cmc creature is okay in the deck, max 2.
