I wouldn't normally do without counterspells but I found occasionally I wanted to use a sorcery or instant for the prowess and all I had was Mana Leak. You could maybe replace some or all of them with either a different charm or other 2 Mana spell that gives you options, or find a 2 Mana instant tutor so you can tutor up Cloudshift to get double prowess in the same turn.

This seems like worse Splinter Twin, combo which is ok, just make sure you follow the same principle: Your deck is really only going to win by comboing out (except in very cornercase scenarios), so you want many copies of your combo cards. Check out this list from 2015: Splinter Twin.

Then come the dig. Sage Owl is quite weak compared to something like Serum Visions. Your lands and tutors seem a little strange, so just some pointers for cards to add: Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Negate and Dispel are all great counter spells for any combo deck, and cards like Lightning Bolt and Snapcaster Mage belong in almost any deck that can support them. Electrolyze is also very good.

One last note is that Eldrazi Tron is pretty good in this meta, and that deck plays Emrakul, the Aeons Torn sometimes, so finding an alternate win condition for the sideboard other than Altar of the Brood might be a good idea. I've seen March of the Machines work, as you can also use it to shoot down lands with Liquidmetal coating. Spellskite is another effective SB card to consider.

I also advise not to play the Kaldra cycle. It is very weak and easy to remove.

Wow! Nice feedback, thanks for the thoughtful considerations!! I would test Tweeking with the Remand, Vapor Snag and Mana Leak. I really like both remands and Vapor snags, they give you a lot of control over you opponent's drops and can use it to predict movements and such. Mana Leak is a weaker version of Spellstutter Sprite, it get's rid ov something permanently BUT does not swing for 1 or 2. Remember that ninja can also be used to abuse triggers and ETB effects from the Faeries.

there is couple of useless cards :

  1. Do not play 2 copies of Grim Flayer, he is good in the start of the game. 2 copies cause that he will be not in your oppening hand very often. So kick him out!

  2. Why you play 4 copies of Evolving Wilds when you play only 4 times basic forest land. Kick him out!

  3. Sleight of Hand is not a good draw in this deck. It is good in another types. Serum Visions are enough from direct blue draws.

  4. Another problem is Dissolve. It is very slow counterspell when you play with tapped lands too. Kick him out.

This is enough for today. Now I write some cards to add :

  1. 2x Island, 2x Swamp instead 4x Evolving Wilds

  2. 2x Thought Scour instead 2x Sleight of Hand

  3. Spell Pierce and/or Mana Leak and/or Spell Snare instead 2x Dissolve

While card drawing Is usually really, REALLY strong, With miracles I would say it goes on the weak side unless you can draw on your opponent's turn.

Electro is fine because it's an instant, so you can play it on your opponent turn and still pay miracles if needed.

See Beyond seems like the obvious removal choice here. Perhaps Lightning Bolt - Path to Exile Mana Leak - Remand could all work. Perhaps, with the amount of instant-sorcery you are playing Thermo-Alchemist could see some work done as well.

goodluck with your deck

As for the mana base, some dual lands would do work here, like Glacial Fortress, Sulfur Falls and Mystic Monastery.

As for removal, Pacifism could just be Blessed Alliance or Lightning Helix, both of which are better. Cancel is just a worse Void Shatter or Disallow. Mana Leak is probably the best option available.

Some card advantage would probably also be good here, like Think Twice. Also, Dramatic Reversal dosen't really make sense to me, since you're only using to untap creatures, and if your looking to preserve your lifetotal, you got removal to help doing that.

Soulfire Grand Master looks like it could do some serious work here. Ojutai's Command is also an option.

Counterspell is not legal in modern. I would look to Mana Leak for a 2 CMC counterspell.

Hi Magnivore, thx for you input. Switched in Wall of Omens for Kraken Hatchling and Remand for Mana Leak. Intangible Virtue is in there so I can work around Sensor Splicer and Master Splicer for much less mana, think I'll stick with it atm. I was considering Path to Exile also, but just sold my last playset to a friend of mine :o Would it be reasonable to switch them in for Serum Visions?
