Breakaway honestly you have no other options, but Nebelgast Herald also helps with the tempo aspect of the deck, and since you are very slim on actual control spells, it might be really good choice.

No problem!

I also noticed that you have Courtly Provocateur for tapping creatures, presumably through attacking. If you want to go the creature route, then Nebelgast Herald can tap them for the scion the turn it enters, or Alluring Siren can be tapped a turn before the provocateur.

TheSimikBOat man, my LGS's meta changed a lot these past few weeks. I've made some changes to the deck and Nebelgast Herald has earned a spot on the main deck. This guys won me a lot of matches I wouldn't have a chance without him, like monored prowess and monoblack aggro.

I changed my mind about the Faerie; I don't need it. I also dropped to 23 lands and I think I did hit the sweet spot. I was drawing too many lands before that.

Another change (and I don't know if I'll keep it) was to swap the 2 copies of Spell Pierce and the 24th land for 3 Azorius Charm. I'm a big fan of modal spells, and this one helps a lot. It's never a dead card 'cause I can cycle it, it allows me to essentially timewalk my opponent (or at least I can remove a blocker or attacker for a turn, which is game changing most of the time) and against faster aggros and burns, lifelink can not only save me, but win the game on the spot, since the life swing potentially puts me so far ahead in the race my opponent won't be able to come back.

I think I really need to add Brazen Borrower to the deck. Initially I'm think about replacing Spectral Sailor with them. It's over my budget for now, so I may probably use Seal Away instead of Spell Pierce and two Nebelgast Herald replacing the Sailors.

Against aggro decks that do have decent removals like monoblack aggro and RW, I had a huge problem, to the point where I was playing defensively because it was the only option. And I may have to remove Spell Pierce from the deck (not even on the sideboard) for 2 Dovin's Veto or Negate but I'm still unsure about that.

My deck lacks good board interaction (with Deputy of Detention being the only weapon to deal with creatures) and a few matches I've played made me realize this.

Thanks of the suggestions! I actually had Nebelgast Herald in the main deck but I already had many 3 drops and the herald proved to be way too situational.

Eidolon is a great card, I thought about using a couple Spirit of the Labyrinth on the sideboard (good CMC, ability and P/T), but in the end, I decided to go with Deafening Silence because it's harder to remove, it's a 1 drop, and against Izzet Ensoul/Phoenix and UW Control it stays on the board longer than the creature.

I think that Nebelgast Herald can be a good card for the sideboard. And you can change Deafening Silence for Eidolon of Rhetoric , since is supported by the tribe.

I don't play much Modern, but Nebelgast Herald looks like a card worth considering.
