PlatinumOne on Turbo Thopter Depths

until you're more familiar with the competitive formats, i'd probably just label decks as "casual" when choosing the format.

firstly, you want to maximize your chances of drawing or searching your Dark Depths and Vampire Hexmage . max out your Sylvan Scrying , and add Expedition Map . the only thing i can think of that would reliably tutor out the hexmage is Muddle the Mixture , but at least it also helps protect you while you assemble the combo. "cantrips" such as Opt and Serum Visions also speed you towards your combos.

i'd also recommend more dual lands, mainly fetch lands like Polluted Delta and shock lands like Overgrown Tomb .

Not of This World will be really hard to cast unless an opponent is targeting your Marit Lage token, but other counterspells like Counterspell and Mana Leak are always useful. other options in your colors for controlling an opponent (to protect yourself and your combo) include Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek to pick off any removal spells that can get around Indestructible, and Abrupt Decay or Assassin's Trophy to remove almost any problem permanent an opponent may have already resolved.

since Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption are sorceries, they can't be used in response to an opponents removal (such as a Path to Exile , which gets around "indestructible"). a Marit Lage token can generally just win by attacking anyway.

Voltaic Construct is probably the best card you could possibly add to this deck. I've found him to be extremely versatile and a key part in several infinite mana combos. Also I'd suggest Scour from Existence , Warping Wail , Not of This World , All Is Dust , and Eldrazi Conscription to boost and protect your guys.

Not of This World is so niche. You're in blue, please consider Negate . Or if you want more synergies with Animar Stratus Dancer :)

goldlion it isn't convoke so it actually doesn't help cast any of the nonartifact spells that have only colored in their costs and the card doesn't work with pacts.

So it helps cast chancellor, Sram, Sai, Sly Requisitioner , Somber Hoverguard , Dismember , Into Thin Air , Mindbreak Trap , Not of This World , Sickening Shoal , Summoning Trap , Battle at the Bridge , Grapeshot and Thoughtcast

But most of these cards already have alternate costs.

As for mass removal, I would think of All Is Dust. The cost of 7 mana shouldn't be too much here and as a bonus it won't affect any of your board (except you manage to steal anything from your opponents).

If you don't have a targeting removal (for creatures, I suppose), make yourself one: Combine Basilisk Collar + Walking Ballista , ending with an instant speed one-shot creature removal, which you can bulk up if you got any spare mana.

Do you like endless combos or are they some kind of no-go in your playgroup?

If not somehow "forbidden", try Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth , giving you an endless supply of your only needed "color" of mana. And thinking of Walking Ballista again, that can shoot players as well, you may find yourself in a game situation, where you can end every game at any time and at your will.

The endless mana thing works well with Myr Matrix, too, providing you with any needed amount of non-flying blockers or a strike force of tiny little fellas to end a game. You may also feed your Mry tokens to Kuldotha Forgemaster for some tutoring (maybe a Darksteel Forge, to protect your own board against your own Oblivion Stone), an Altar of Dementia for an alternate win condition (if for any reasons you can't overwhealm your opponent with the thousands of Myr you can create - Moat or anything like that), a Carnage Altar for some extra carddraw or even a Blasting Station.

And as ThoAlmighty already said, Not of This World could be a nice addon.

Xica on Mono Colored Modern

Its possible, but Not of This World can only counter spells (anc abilities) that TARGET my permanents, as such its will fail to counter Wrath of God like effects, all kinds of edict effects, or recurring premanenrt based removal, like - abilities on planeswalkers (and it cant counter the walker itself)

Mono rdd also suffers from a serious lack of recursion, and lack of more than one playsrt of counterpells, nog to mention that it doesng have access to chesp shroud effect, to combat hate in gsme 2 & 3.
