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.

Here is an idea, you could play Magus of the Bazaar! Vintage decks play the land form of it, and this is modern legal!

Skywatch on graveyard is the best hand

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:

1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.

2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.

P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.
