Oppressive Rays Discussion
2 weeks ago
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:
Wincons: Starfield of Nyx
Lands: Scavenger Grounds

Oppressive Rays and Soul Tithe are basically just strictly worse Path to Exile. If you want to deal with something like a Primeval Titan or a Wurmcoil Engine, then you won't be able to because your opponent will happily pay the tax and kill you anyway. I know you want tax tribal, but I think you should make an exception for Path to Exile.
Mana Tithe is a beautiful card, but I don't think it's good enough. Especially if you have Thalia in play and have to pay 2 mana for it.
Do you need Nykthos? I guess it can allow you to cast Chancellor and helps you cast Spelltithe Enforcer, but I don't think either of those are necessary by any means. I think 2 more Field of Ruin or 2 Ghost Quarter would be better.
Shefet Dunes is a neat trick for closing games. It doesn't tax, but it's also a land so I think that's grey area.
I think there are too many 4-drops. I also think you have too many 3-ofs and not enough 4-ofs. I think Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Leonin Arbiter, and Judge's Familiar should be 4-ofs. I think Baird is the worst of your 4-drops, but I'm not sure. Windborn Muse dies to Lightning Bolt, which feels bad.
What I would do:
Remove Chancellor of the Annex, Baird, 1 Windborn Muse, Spelltithe Enforcer, Oppressive Rays, Soul Tithe, Mana Tithe, Nykthos, and 1 Plains (18 cards)
That leaves 4 cards unaccounted for. I don't know what I would do with those final 4 spots.

Perhaps there is something better than your 3x Equipments as they don't trigger Heroic abilities. I'd use those 3 slots for some sort of removal - off the top of my head and aside from the desirable/obvious/expensive Path to Exile - Condemn, Oppressive Rays, Journey to Nowhere, Oblivion Ring, Cast Out, Seal Away, Chained to the Rocks(requires a Mountain), Banishing Light, Celestial Flare.

Love the deck. I'm doing a tallowisp spirit deck myself. I can see yours is super Budget and still looks solid. Land is always the most expensive part.
Have you looked at Curious Obsession? It's been aroun solid for me as a 1x
What about Oppressive Rays? would keep it low to the ground with being able to hit the turn 1-2 threat with it.
Please take a look at my version of the deck and let me know what you think.
