Hi fuzzyllama,

I'm afraid Ideas Unbound does not combo with Hollow One, you can't cast Hollow One at the end of your turn (unless you gave it Flash* somehow) as the end of turn occurs after the second main phase.

You could try Chart a Course , Looter il-Kor or Magus of the Bazaar Shinen of Flight's Wings in blue, maybe Phantasmagorian from black. Red has 2 major advantages draw /discard like Faithless Looting & Burning Inquiry and the Flameblade Adept, though blue does have Cunning Survivor...

Hope that is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.

Hollow One seems worth testing here, and I like trying Esper here instead of Rakdos.

You may want to run a few U card-draw spells with discard like Catalog, Compulsive Research, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Magus of the Bazaar, or Thirst for Knowledge.

You may also want to mess around with cards like Funeral Charm, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Thoughtseize to let you disrupt opponent's early plays or discard your own cards for a Hollowed One, if you play it. I think Pack Rat + Hollowed one would be sweet in this deck, too.

Run some light mainboard removal against humans like Flaying Tendrils with Echoing Truth in the sideboard.

You'll want multiple Disenchant in the sideboard to get rid of graveyard hate, and maybe some Leyline of Sanctity to avoid losing value on your cycle cards to other players' hand-disruption.

Rule of Law and Grand Abolisher are probably good sideboard cards versus Control, and a Worship + Pack Rat seems great. Maybe also a Renewed Faith, Blessed Alliance, Sphinx's Revelation, or a Kor Firewalker or Burrenton Forge-Tender or two for the Burn/Zoo match-up.

Have fun!

Skywatch Magus of the Bazaar is nowhere close to a "stupidly powerful draw engine". re read it. its a net loss of 1 card each time you use it.

@Skywatch - Actually, the original iteration of this deck did play Magus of the Bazaar. There's a lot of problems with the card though.

  1. It's card disadvantage. A lot of the time I do need some of the cards in my hand, and I would rather not have to lose some of them.

  2. It dies to everything. Literally every removal spell in the format kills it, and I really don't want to be turning on my opponents removal by making myself more vulnerable.

  3. It's slow. The reason that Bazaar of Baghdad sees play is because it's turn 1 activate it and turn 2 mill a metric fucktonne of your deck. In modern, turn 2 play an 0/1, turn 3 hope it lived to do an effect that I can do anyway on turn 2 without putting myself behind on cards or having to risk it dying and me being super behind just feels so much better.

That's for the suggestion though, I do really appreciate when people have input in my deck, as it helps me make it better and identify weaknesses, even when I don't take the suggestion.

Magus of the Bazaar could be a stupidly powerful dredge engine

Magus of the Bazaar could be better than Insolent Neonate.

You could play Magus of the Bazaar. It will help with dredge things, and it is just good.
