MrSeaSnake on monoBlue Devotion

I have also made a mono-blue devotion deck and I found your take on it quite interesting. I have Kira, Great Glass-Spinner in the main deck. Have you thought about including Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx? I don't see the importance of including phantasmal images. Is it for copying Master of Waves? What about tutors for Walking Ballista such as Trinket Mage? Running 4 Spreading Seas mainboard is a must for me. Have you tried it? Personally, I would cut like spell pierce for something like Voidmage Prodigy as it synergizes with other cards in the deck and gives 2 devotion on top of that.

Seems like a fun list to play. I would recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but you already explained why you don't run it. I don't know what you would swap for it, but maybe swap Nantuko Husk?

I have lots of different pieces of advice, choose any or none of my recommendations. These are just my thoughts on the deck.

Love the themes here, but don't be afraid to include red staples. Would take a look at some more dumb red staples like Vandalblast, Ruby Medallion, Lightning Bolt, Reverberate, Reiterate, Guttersnipe, Jaya's Immolating Inferno, Rampaging Ferocidon, Reforge the Soul, Blasphemous Act, Fireball, Blood Moon

Cheap mana rocks/ramp are important to any successful deck. Include staple artifacts like Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, and primal amulet

Though I like the pheonix theme, your planeswalkers scream "play instants/ Sorceries". I would include less Pheonixes and include more board wipes (to protect the walkers) and red cantrips (for single target removal and damage to the face). I would replace a few lands with staple mana rocks. I see what you're doing with caged sun, but I promise you will still find enough mountains even if you get rid of a few. You don't have to entirely scrap the theme, and still add some really good spells. (I personally would've made the deck more non creature based.)

If you'd like to be MORE creature based, you should look at Sarkhan walkers and some dragons instead of Jaya and some pheonixes.

Speaking on mana base: to be a little more competitive I would replace some of your weaker spells with a couple more mana-producing cards. You would like to start any game with 3 mana-producing cards in your hand, and on average you are getting 2.8 which can be low in some cases and mana screw you more often. (Mana screw is always way worse than mana flood in EDH.) Personally I would add two more mana-producing cards, and take out two non-mana-producing cards. Look at Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and decide whether or not your devotion to red calls for it.

Throwing in things like Rampaging Ferocidon and Blood Moon will counter some decks and give your opponents' more things to worry about. Excellent decks are decks with multiple threats/win cons.

I recommend Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Expedition Map to grab Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Teferi's Protection proves useful time and time again.

XxBullockxX on Naked Lunch

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a good land card to add since this is a mono color deck and the card allows quick mana in exchange for tapping two lands with nykthos

DRmagic2017 on Mardu vamp swarm

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Serra Ascendant in a Vampire deck? Seems a little bit weird. Conspiracy maybe... I also recommend to find a place for Blade of the Bloodchief. Not sure about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - I use it in monocolored decks only (just like Vampire Nocturnus - this guy is great in mono B Vampires but he is much less effective in Mardu builds). What do you think about Maze of Ith? Or Vesuva? Seems a little bit more interesting. I also see Sorin Markov in your maybeboard. You added Eldrazi Monument so token generators are much more preferable. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor for example. And yes, don't forget about Anointed Procession if you want to get tons of tokens. I also recommend to think about board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation, Languish etc. Even Obliterate. Why not? Eerie Interlude + Obliterate and a very big surprise is guaranteed :)

Deck update :

I've removed Garruk, Primal Hunter and Hornet Queen beceause they seemed too slow when I've had them in my opening hand. Also removed pet card Fog (I have a long history with this card starting with my first ever deck, wich was a modern mono green...) and finaly revived.

These cards have been replace by Rampant Growth, Wood Elves, a Forest and Sylvan Scrying to help me fetch Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I'm currently trying to figure out a balance between drawing, ramping and finding my wincons.
