Blue_Flame I swapped Anticipate for Think Twice and Serum Visions for Jace's Ingenuity. I'm going for hard card advantage over selection. So far it seems a little faster.

I'm going replace Rune Snag with Remand and Mana Leak with Delay. That ought to make Tranquil Cove a potential 8 life advantage over opponents. Thanks for the feedback. I feel a little better about this big pile of jank. Cheers!

Hi! Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I originally had Pyromancer Ascension in the deck so Rune Snag worked better with that and Thought Scour but I might cut them for 3x Mana Leak and 1x Logic Knot

I haven't tested the deck a tonne yet but so far the results have been good

I beat a mono White Korr Equip deck pretty handedly and an outdated Mono Red Burn list. For tier decks I'm 1-0 vs Jund and 1-0 vs Junk surprisingly, 0-1 vs Boros Burn and 1-0 vs Eldrazi aggro which I think was extremely lucky as he tried to get out a T2 Reality Smasher with 2x Eldrazi Temple and Gemstone Mine in play and I countered with Rune Snag

Deck looks great! I prefer Mana Leak over Rune Snag, but this more of opinion. Rune snag has less consitency and works worse with Snapcaster Mage. Otherwise, this seems like a list that competes well against teir one decks. How is the deck's record? Thanks, and +1! Oh, and one more thing: I LOVE the inclusion of Gigadrowse. I would go up to 3 or 4 for maybe a Baral, Chief of Compliance. Also, have you considered Exhaustion?

I'm not that fond of Noble Hierarch or Ancestral Vision. Hierarch just isn't what the deck wants to do, and I don't think the deck is as reliant on visions. Possible replacements may include Scavenging Ooze, Painful Truths, and some number Mana Leak

Gamerpg04 I updated the list with quests and batterskull in the side and What I'd replace them with. The changes make this feel more tempo than control now. The Caw Blade lists I looked at only seemed to play 8 creatures. (4 Squad Hawk and 4 Stoneforge) and seemed to rely more on planeswalkers ending the game so I tried to keep that intact with ways to stall. I was fighting with myself between Serum Visions or Mana Leaks and I ultimately decided on serum visions as it is more stuff to do on turn one as well as helping prevent us from drawing into our swords indtead of getting them to our hand off of our Trophy Mages. I even considered going up to the full playset of trophy mages instead of one of the wall of omens. Another consideration I had was a one of Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

edit: the more i Look at it I like the extra mage and jace in the wall of omens place so updated the list

psychosmurf96 I'd recommend adding some more counters/removal, as the deck feels less control, and more turns 2-4 Squadron Hawk.

Seems like it could be modern playable, But I would swap the quests for some Mana Leaks. Maybe even Steelshaper's Gift.

I'm a fan of counter magic in general. Mana Leak, Remand and Cryptic Command are considered among the best but in your deck Thassa's Rebuff could also be a possibility.

So I think I'm actually going to run Rune Snags in place of Negates or Mana Leaks. They can counter anything so they're better than Negate, but they also can scale better than Mana Leak into the late game as long as we get even one of them early on! I think I'm going to cut the kaladesh lands for now. While they would definitely help a lot, they're also pretty expensive right now because they're in standard. I think I'm about ready to buy and try the deck, and will post back here when I get some experience with it to tell viewers if it's worth trying or not!
