I like it so far, though I would swap the black side of the deck out for either green or white. Unless you add some more black removal. Though changing over to these other colors would make your deck somewhat similar to your finest auras deck.

For green:You could add Ancestral Mask, Rancor, Keen Sense

For white:Daybreak Coronet, Ethereal Armor, Kor Spiritdancer

If you feel like you need some draw, Harmonize, Deathreap Ritual, or Keen Sense.

Interesting choice for a deck... In my humblest opinion, I would swap the two Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for two Liliana of the Veil and here is why:

*You have removal, but nothing for boggles. Yes, you have beefy creatures, but they won't outrace a 6/6 boggle suited up with Unflinching Courage+Ethereal Armor+Keen Sense. So if you play boggles, you auto scoop.

*With Bob and souls, your discards are essentially free, while your opponents have to pay for lili's +1. Lili's +1 pairs well with Thoughtseize when you run up against a solid combo deck like Saheeli Rai or kiki-chord and the like. Not to mention Baral Storm....

*Kalitas' abilities are solid, we know that. But I feel like by the time they are relevant in modern, you are likely already dead. Think infect... your opponent doesn't kill you with the 1st creature he puts down (Glistener Elf). Nooooooooo! He kills you with the Inkmoth Nexus he hung onto using until turn 3 sitting on either Apostle's Blessing or Vines of Vastwood kicker... By then, a Kalitas in hand is essentially a dead card. But lili is steady forcing him to discard his pumps and good cards in hand when she drops, or she's forcing him to sac the creature he just put rancor on... TEMPO TEMPO TEMPO!!!

I would definitely play 4 of each Umbra, cutting Oppressive Rays and a Spirit Mantle. The Umbras are just necessary in case your opponent plays a sweeper or has a creature large enough to trade with yours.

I would also put in another Rancor for Keen Sense. You are almost always going to be the beatdown deck, so it is better to push damage and trample over blockers than draw extra cards. The Spiritdancers are probably enough draw, but I would still keep in a Keen Sense.

For the land base, I would cut a forest and a Sunpetal Grove for 2 Wooded Foothills, because you need double white too often to run multiple forests and the foothills can get your Temple Gardens. With the extra fetches, running a Dryad Arbor seems like a good idea because you can fetch it in response to an opponent activating Liliana of the Veil or if you just need another creature.

Sideboard, Seal of Primordium is just a little bit better than Naturalize with Ethereal Armor. Otherwise, it looks good!

Hi mate, thanks for the upvote and yes, considered it, but went along with Keen Sense. 8 out of 10 games I draw Spirit Mantle anyway, so I decided to go with dome more draw mechanics instead of evasion :)

jparker-sartori21, I'm going to be testing card draw for that very reason, something like Keen Sense or Shamanic Revelation probably

Thank you for you're input and sorry for taking so long to respond! I definitely have had problems with the efficient removal every deck seems to run. From your insight and reviewing previous games, I have come to the conclusion that the draw from Keen Sense is not needed. If I have not won by the time I need draw, I have most likely lost. I am going to replace them with Vines of Vastwood.

Yeah, I know, fiddled around meanwhile with the creatures (from 14 to 11) and seeked further Input on mtgtop8. Went with some more Rancors and Keen Senses for more drawing power. So far I'm now happy with it, but yet unsure about the manabase. Games will tell..Ty for your feedbacks btw :)
