you could try my Myth Realized with the Captain which is pretty janky and I think it stands a chance at FNM. It's close to $300, and I find it fun. It's basically a {U}{W} control deck that has a turn 1 payoff for your spells. Game 2, if your opponent destroys your Myth Realized , you can crash in with an army of Chads (Gideons).

Darth_Savage First of all, thanks for such an in-depth reply. I can really appreciate feedback that involved more than 5 seconds of thought. Let me try to address some of the feedback you gave me, and give you some insight into some of my choices. Let me preface this by saying that I haven't really done much with this deck in at least a year. As the sideboard meta in modern shifted more heavily towards artifact hate (due to Tron, KCI, Lantern, and others), any/all variations of lantern control went right down the toilet. So with that said, I became okay with the fact that this deck was going to be more of a casual fnm homebrew than a competitive netdeck variant.

1.) " Ghostly Prison or Norn's Annex aren't Ensnaring Bridge, but they would offer some protection." -True. However, simply put.. they are just less effective Ensnaring Bridges, attempting to do the same thing, but not as well. The whole point was to move this deck away from relying so heavily on a stall tactic like Ensnaring Bridge .

2.) "Your other options are fogs Holy Day / Ethereal Haze , these only stall a turn, or you could try bounce Boomerang / Vapor Snag , lastly there is Silence ." -Again, you're not wrong when you think along the lines of "stalling", but when you try to think about how to manage a lantern deck without a heavy stall mechanic, then you start to realize that none of these are good options. Not only do they just fall far short of what Ensnaring Bridge would effectively do for me, but they essentially try to offer me the same win con. Think outside the box. Not.. what else could I do instead of Ensnaring Bridge?, but rather.. what else could I do instead of stalling the game?

3.) " Glint-Nest Crane , this is 2 mana, compared to Ancient Stirrings , Faithless Looting or Serum Visions , the fact it has a body is less relevant than the extra cost." -100%. However, one of the biggest challenges with Modern Lantern is that their mana base is far too greedy. After 15+ years of playing this game, I have found dual color decks to be the sweet spot for most mana bases, and prefer to keep my decks there. Now, while Serum Visions is a nice 1 mana cantrip that fits my colors, I believe that the Crane offers me more versatility. A body to block, a creature with a form of evasion, and helps me to dig deeper for my win con. Keep in mind that my 1 mana slots are plentiful in this deck, it is not as if I am missing out on many turn 1 drop opportunities.

4.) "You could run a finisher Indomitable Archangel / Bastion Inventor / Myth Realized or go wide Monastery Mentor " - Bastion Inventor is the only suggestion here that stands out to me as something I hadn't thought of. It doesn't really fit the theme of 5/5's bashing you in the face, but it would certainly make for a nice sideboard threat for when my opponents think they have me on lock. The rest of your suggestions again don't fit my manabase, which I already addressed earlier.

5.) " Whir of Invention would also help you find your Darksteel Citadel or lock." -This is a suggestion I have struggled with a lot. The lantern community as a whole swears by this card, and albeit.. with good reason. And perhaps that is why I have my reservations when it comes to this card. I strive to make a deck my own. Not to copy pasta what others have done. My biggest concern with this card is how it negatively effects the manabase. UUU is just not a good mana cost for a deck running 6 colorless lands. It's why most Whir Lantern decks have cut Ghost Quarter or Inventors' Fair .

And finally.. 6.) "your deck is suffering from a clash between the control nature of Lantern and the aggro nature of Ensoul Artifact" -I don't entirely disagree with you, however, this was the purpose of the deck from the get go. The big question for me has always been.. how do I turn slow lantern into aggro lantern? I concede that the very nature of lantern IS slow and controlly, but.. I am the type of player to think outside of the box. If there is a way to make it happen, I will find it. And even though this deck has been put on my back-burner for a while, I am sure I will revisit that very question again ...eventually.

I can respect your dislike of Ensnaring Bridge, I primarily play a Hollow One aggro deck (Power 4 is Ferocious) and Bridge is the pits, it's one of the cards that drive the aggressive turn 4 play-style of Modern... That being said, part of the modus operandi of control is controlling the board state, or at least stalling it. Ghostly Prison or Norn's Annex aren't Ensnaring Bridge, but they would offer some protection. Your other options are fogs Holy Day / Ethereal Haze , these only stall a turn, or you could try bounce Boomerang / Vapor Snag , lastly there is Silence . Upping the threat count, especially when that threat is less efficient like Tezzeret's Touch is rarely the correct answer for a control deck.

A secondary issue is your enabler, Glint-Nest Crane, this is 2 mana, compared to Ancient Stirrings , Faithless Looting or Serum Visions , the fact it has a body is less relevant than the extra cost. Again if you were punishing fast plays with something like Rule of Law / Damping Sphere , then this wouldn't be such an issue, but you aren't...

You could run a finisher Indomitable Archangel / Bastion Inventor / Myth Realized or go wide Monastery Mentor , if you want to close out the game quicker Whir of Invention would also help you find your Darksteel Citadel or lock.

I get the feeling that you want to play a control deck, but don't actually like playing control, if that makes sense? Decks tend to perform better if they have a clear concise goal, in effect synergy, your deck is suffering from a clash between the control nature of Lantern and the aggro nature of Ensoul Artifact. I hope this comment is helpful and I wish you luck brewing your deck.

First I'd suggest you edit your deck list and under Format where it says Standard, change this to Modern. EDIT - Ugh, I can't actually suggest the linked cards because your deck is in the wrong format. :-(

I can think of maybe three ways to help fix your mana, that don't involve splashing green (not you Scuttlemutt or Vesper Ghoul), the first is Lotus Bloom. The second is in a similar vein Pentad Prism, slightly less efficient though. The third is a 2 card combo Invisible Stalker + Dowsing Dagger  Flip, obviously this would dilute your deck more than the first two options, but maybe?

Fog effects will protect your Planeswalkers Darkness, Holy Day if you are worried about creature damage, Apostle's Blessing will work in most cases (sigh, Eldrazi), both would require you to keep 1 mana open though, then again your a control deck with counter-spells, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Your last issue is the toughest to provide a solution to, maybe Myth Realized, Cryptic Serpent? Left-field Laboratory Maniac, if you Ad Nauseam on your opponents turn or Conflagrate, if you Ad Nauseam on your turn? I'd also suggest a Boseiju, Who Shelters All in your sideboard, to protect the combo kill...

Thats all I've got, hope this at least gives you some ideas, good luck with your brew.

What about cantrips to smooth out your draws, make Snapcaster Mage better and get Myth Realized big quicker?

Prison decks are definitely played in Modern. I suggest you edit your description to say "modern" in every instance you wrote "standard" - they are not the same thing. Below are some spells that fit the theme. There are obviously many others. I suggest you try a deck search here on TappedOut for Modern Prison decks (use Advanced Search function)

Some spells to consider:

Removal: Oppressive Rays, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Seal Away

Wincons: Starfield of Nyx

Creatures: Tragic Poet, Mesa Enchantress,

Lands: Scavenger Grounds

Other spells: Authority of the Consuls, Personal Sanctuary, Myth Realized, Nevermore

JKRice on Oloro Stax

Seems like a pretty solid stax deck, but there are a few things that need to be smoothed out, mainly in your creatures.

1: Plaguecrafter is a much better option than Slum Reaper, since it’s less mana and forces a discard if there’s nothing not the field to hit.

2: Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, and Bloodghast: all good cards, but not necessarily on your deck. Even as a stax/stall deck, you are not going to beat someone down from 40 with a bloodghast. They will be able to kill it or kill you before you win. Instead, I would recommend one of three things, or a combination of them. A: put in Starfield of Nyx as a beatdown strategy. Since you have lots of enchantments, you can kill someone easily with this. B: Myth Realized get huge very fast. Since you are a grindy deck, this thing can start three shotting people before they are able to win through your stax. C: add in more stax stuff, like Vryn Wingmare or maybe something like Frozen AEther.

3: I’m not sure what Anointed Procession is doing in the deck other than maybe possibly buffing Grave Titan, but that is a marginal upside at best, and it would be better as another stax Card.

4: you have lots of lands and more than enough ramp that you don’t need them. I wouldn’t recommend playing any more than 37 lands.

PRO-AUGMANDOO I think you might find a more competitive version of this deck really exciting. You can swap out Horribly Awry with copies of Fatcaster (Torrential Gearhulk), but the main wincon is Myth Realized. I think you'd enjoy a deck like this, since I saw you like tron and are looking at UW control.
