Hello there Senomar, I really appreciate the response! :)

Yeah i have been on the fence of Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and hes definetly gonna go at some point!

I feel like languish is fine in MY meta, not that often that it will kill any of my own creatures as i run so few and it also kills Meren of Clan Nel Toth and other 4 toughness creatures in my meta :) As for Fiery Confluence theres not alot of artifacts that it would kill so i would go with radiant flames instead of it :P

If i go with the reasoning that Counterspell is bad in 3 colours then i should probably take out Cryptic Command aswell, but my manabase is trying to accomedate the color intensive spells i play, reason for not alot of utility lands. Except for Tectonic Edge which i want to be a wasteland later :)

Recently cut Go for the Throat and i know its kinda controversial with me just saying that theres not alot of artifacts in the format but had to try cutting a spot removal for Thought Erasure . Tho now i think about it i should probably have cut Terminate instead.

Maze of Ith , is definetly a card some people play, but i really dont like it even tho it can save you alot of damage.

As for the more expensive suggestions, i really want them all... Snapcaster Mage , Liliana, the Last Hope , Wasteland but money ;) Force of Will is a card im really not that big a fan of getting 1. because of the price 2. Don't like the card disadvantage it can give as my meta can be quite grindy. (Ofc i know its a amazing card) Force of Negation or Negate are considerations instead :)

Hello my friend ! Really nice deck ! The only suggestion I would make is cutting Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker . The CCM is way to high and this card is 99% a dead card in hand in the format. Furthermore you already have quiet some kills in your deck (especially your commander).

You can cut it for Force of Will , Force of Negation , Negate or even the Snapcaster Mage you're talking about in the description :)

I'm not that sure about Languish too since it kills all the creatures you have in the deck and your commander. Fiery Confluence or Radiant Flames seems much appropriated if you want to keep the same amount of wrath.

Ral, Izzet Viceroy seems a bit slow for the format too, you named it, Liliana, the Last Hope would be better

Considering your game plan running 42 lands with Maze of Ith + Wasteland (2 stapples for control decks) could be great. It's a matter of taste :)

Counterspell in 3 colors is strong but not that good. Go for the Throat or Tainted Pact could be better. Once again it's a matter of taste !

I'm far from beeing a pro player so these are more an opinions rather than advices ! Have a nice day !

Both sorin's feel weak in the deck, as does Contagion Engine, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker , and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

I've been working on my own Superfriends list, 5 Color BFFs, and here are my suggestions:

  1. Why aren't you playing any Nicol Bolas? I think that Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God are all must plays in any Superfriends deck.

  2. I also think that you should play Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Venser, the Sojourner .

  3. You need more board wipes, like Wrath of God and Damnation - you are only running 2 creatures after all.

  4. Karn's Bastion is a nice land in any Atraxa deck.

Honestly the only planeswalkers that are a problem to me are Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon because of tron, Liliana of the Veil , and maybe Teferi, Hero of Dominaria for standard.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor is neat, but he was only so busted before because there was almost no removal for planeswalkers. Without all that much miracles support in modern, Teferi is just better in many ways. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is way too hard to cast to be a real promblem.

Still, I would definitely like to see much more diversity in the Planeswalker designs. I like the ones where you can ult immediately, but it's not really a busted ability, like Karn, Scion of Urza or Liliana, Untouched By Death . More planeswalkers like Nissa, Steward of Elements with X in their cost would be nice too.

i'm a modern player and not even worried about Jace, the Mind Sculptor . Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker would only ever see play in commander, and i don't think he's too op there.
