This looks great, but would it suck if you're all set up with the staff but you don't have Fblthp ? Or if, once casted but before you use your staff, your opponent uses some spell , sending fblthp away before you can play out your combo. -/-/-/- I love the vibe of this deck and its flavor. For a sideboard, I'd consider Supreme Verdict , Path to Exile , and/or Leyline of Sanctity . Good luck and good day :)

Dream Salvage works well with Smallpox and Delirium Skeins

Bojuka Bog could be good graveyard hate, and still provide black mana.

Yeah, I didn't even think about you not having an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , but only 5 colorless lands seems like that's not too important, idk. I'm glad to read the update!

Kaya, Bane of the Dead and/or Detection Tower could be good sideboard against Leyline of Sanctity .

I don't think you need Leyline of Sanctity in the mainboard. I'd move it to the sideboard in favor of Oppressive Rays .

I've watched some MTGO Mill deck gameplays in YouTube, and it's very commom to opponent side in Leyline of Sanctity , mulligan until they have it in the opening (sometimes mulliganing to three), and them the mill player just scoops.

Then, there is this Scion_of_Darkness genius who maindeck a Lab Maniac.

I'd pay anything to see the Leyline player, with two cards in hand, just watching while Scion march into a Labman win.

Metallic Mimic , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , & Grateful Apparition seem to pair up well with each other. Tezzeret's Gambit fits with them as well. Venser, the Sojourner seems like a possible fit, too, though his CMC isn't ideal. I'm guessing you'd get more mileage out of Dovin, Grand Arbiter . Unclaimed Territory or Ancient Ziggurat seem like possible land additions.

Sideboard ideas: Blessed Alliance , Nevermore , Revoke Existence (super against stuff like Hangarback Walker , etc) Ratchet Bomb , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Teyo, the Shieldmage are cheaper than Leyline of Sanctity , Celestial Purge

First off, I would strongly recommend that you stick to only 1 plan B unless you have decided to lose to a couple decks before going to the tournament (I usually plan on losing to humans and hollow one sometimes). Sideboard slots for this deck are thin as really we only have 11 with Leyline of Sanctity being mandatory. It's possible to run 2 plan B's, heck I once ran a Gifts Ungiven package but at a larger tournament I wouldn't recommend it, in your local meta sure as presumably the pool is less diverse and you can get away with maybe not playing something like Hurkyl's Recall , but at a larger tournament that can come back to bite you, for example at a GP I once took out a card from the board as it only hit a couple matchups and I wanted some other matchups to be tighter and proceeded to play the one deck the card I took out was good against 3 times out of the first 4 rounds. At large tournaments its a hard call sometimes but generally don't make a decision that isn't necessary which will cost you games for simply making your percentage slightly higher against something else.

As for The Scorn it is a card that is actually a favorite of mine and one I commonly play (you just happen to have found my list at a time that I am not on it unfortunately) I briefly mention my thoughts on The Scorn in the primer and I'll quote myself here to save you having to look around for it:

" Patrician's Scorn : A free removal spell, Patrician's Scorn has proven to be a very flexible card out of the sideboard in the right meta (though is probably too narrow for most big tournaments). Unlike other enchantment removal, Patrician's Scorn has the ability to cause a win out of nowhere via casting it upon the resolution of Angel's Grace or in response to Phyrexian Unlife removing problem enchantments. Very meta-dependent card however."

The way the card was errata'ed? (I guess it would have to be a gerund so erratandum but it isn't really a verb in the English, this is proof taking a Latin word to English sometimes doesn't work) makes it more interesting seeing how the alternate cost can be paid upon the "casting" of another white spell not just the resolution meaning it can be cast for free in response to Phyrexian Unlife . I will reiterate what I said in the primer however, its usage is very meta dependent. If you expect to see a lot of G/W Company, Faeries (its medium in this matchup), or Bogles then it is very good, otherwise its just okay at best and at worst you will never touch it. All three of those matchups are winnable without The Scorn so unless you expect to face them a lot I would prioritize a different matchup that you are maybe less confident in or you expect to see more of.

P.S. Patrician's Scorn looks great in foil by the way.

Yeah, if your meta is running a large number of those cards, then it is probably running a few Annul . I normally don’t see either of them in my playgroup, though I have to run Echoing Truth to deal with Leyline of Sanctity . I also sideboard Inquisition of Kozilek (or Duress ) to catch some of the nasties like the cards you’ve mentioned, before they happen.

So yeah, keep Annul if you get value from it. Sideboards are entirely meta-dependant

Halo is an option to consider but Leyline of Sanctity fills very similar roles.

Flagstones of Trokair is definitely a consideration. I’ll probably throw a pair in. Thanks!
