Mystical Teachings Discussion
2 weeks ago
Looks like a solid control deck. Here are a few suggestions you can check out depending on budget and your own preference. A lot of these are just updates to existing slots.
I really don't like Gamble so I would cut that for a Vampiric Tutor, or Personal Tutor heck even a Mystical Teachings. Instead of Languish I would look into Blasphemous Act or Damnation. Because of Thraxi's high CC, I would personally run a bit more ramp, Thran Dynamo probably being the best. All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are awesome but expensive, but they give you enchantment removal. I usually run one or the other but not both. Two sweet upgrades that you could make are Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery these are ridiculously powerful. You can wipe the board at instant speed, and you can wait til the last possible second to make your card choices. I'm sure you run into the "do I cast thraxi, or hold up counterspells debate, these cards fix that problem.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I've been casually trying to find a way to cast Cruel Ultimatum in Modern for a little bit now, but have never found a good way. I never even considered Spellweaver Helix! I would highly recommend adding 4 copies of Serum Visions, both as a way to filter your draws and a strong sorcery to get off of Spellweaver Helix. I also suggest adding in more Mana Leaks and potentially more Inquisition of Kozileks and/or Thoughtseizes as more disruption, perhaps over Countersquall, Spell Snare, and maybe something like Mystical Teachings, a Remand, an Augur of Bolas, etc. Sweet deck idea, though!

Add 2 more Expedition Maps, they are very important!
I love the idea, by the way.

Rune-scarred demon and sphinx of uthuun, though powerful cards, seems off here. Your average cmc is around 2.X, so some seven drops will probably never hit the board before you win or die. You should definitely try more aggressive unblockables. My advice would be either Elusive Spellfist or Slither Blade, with the spellfist being the better choice. Mystical Teachings could also be worth trying to find you some removal if need be.

The first thing we would have to do is give up on the idea of rewording cards to preserve functionality. Mystical Teachings would need to say "Instants and Sorceries", and Mystical Tutor would need to say "Sorceries", but the confusion caused by the old and new wording would be too much.
That means, some cards' functions will change. There would be some additional functionality added to cards like: Dispel, which would now be able to target some creatures, and Young Pyromancer would trigger on a few random things, and Goblin Dark-Dwellers would be able to cast things they shouldn't have any right to.
This change would have an impact on some mechanics, like Delirium, which was made with the idea that Instants are not Sorceries. Turn one Fetchland into Tarfire would activate Delirium. Not to mention what that would do to your Turn two play. It would make it stronger, sure, and it'd be something they'd have to keep an eye on.
The only card I can tell that that change would actually break, is Torrential Gearhulk, who could cast Torrential Gearhulks out of your graveyard, but even then, it wouldn't make it ban-worthy; it'd just make it a pretty good modern card.
Anyway...I think this is a good idea.

Torment of Hailfire needs around 20 mana to start REALLY putting the screws to people (this is also assuming no one is shitting out tokens and just laughs at you demanding they sac 18 of them). If you have 20 mana in this deck, go win... you can just Yawgmoth's Will to re-use your Demonic Tutor to go find Tooth and Nail, or you your Eternal Witness to get it back, or flashback your Mystical Teachings to find your Snapcaster Mage to replay the Demonic Tutor, leaving you 10 mana to entwine it and have a Flusterstorm backup.
Like he said this deck is about WINNING, not making your opponent suffer through horrible choices. Torment of Hailfire needs to be in a shell that is built to drag the game on a very long time and attrition your opponents out. Damia is trying to end the game by turn 8, if that does not happen by turn 8 it may run out of steam and get taken out of the game because it is not built to win an attrition war. It is built to ramp to, find, and entwine Tooth and Nail to win the game.
