Paranoid Delusions Discussion
11 hours ago
Whereas I agree for the most part on the while drop the ciphering thing, I believe Paranoid Delusions and Midnight Recovery could stay. Especially because, if you have an unblockable creature, why not mill them or get a grave return? Also if you follow the advice and add more removal (which I also agree with), Eternal Thirst is a nice enchantment which will make a creature grow and will work as miller or blocker. Plus lifegain.
As for big butt creatures, look to the wall creature type. Wall of Frost would be great for example.

For other unblockable spirits in various budgets, Ghastlord of Fugue, Nether Traitor, Tormented Soul, Hunted Phantasm are worth a look. The big trick is managing to pump out the damage with the unblocked creatures or get other fun effects- I've seen Curiosity, Tainted Strike, Phyresis, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Oona's Blackguard, Paranoid Delusions, Call of the Nightwing Skullsnatcher, Stronghold Rats, Helm of the Ghastlord, Mephidross Vampire/Necropolis Regent, you name it. Its all about deciding how you want to make that unblockable damage into an unstoppable advantage

Deck looks sweet! Artful Dodge seems like a decent alternative to Rogue's Passage.I have no idea if Paranoid Delusions is good enough, but it's a card that would be at its best in this type of deck.Vapor Snag is a good way to get rid of creatures aswell.

I'm guessing this is your first attempt on modern based on the cards you have?If so, the first thing you should look out for is to strenghten your removal and counterspells. Efficiency is key in countering in modern. You want to have counters that hit as widely ranged as possible for a minimal mana investment. Spells like Countermand will be to slow if you're going deeper into the format.
For starters, i suggest looking out for some Mana Leak to trade for. Those are great, since most decks in modern wont be able to pay 3 for a while.
For good removal options that are cheap and easy to get, you could try to trade for some Ultimate Price, Disfigure or even Dead Weight. If the Languish in your Maybeboard is a card you already have, be all means play it in the mainboard! it is great to have a sweeper in the main 60.
If you're not going all-in into milling your opponent i'd suggest exchanging the mill cards as well, since it can help out the opponent more than you! Almost all deck in modern use their graveyard as a resource to an extent.Paranoid Delusions, Sage's Row Denizen, Mind Funeral and Curse of the Bloody Tome can then all be replaced with cards that help your overall control strategy.
Cheap cards, that could also help you are e.g. Dimir Charm, Meloku the Clouded Mirror,Haunted Plate Mail can be a budget alternative for a wincon... Generally speaking, some UB dual lands will help your mana base out. Look for Jwar Isle Refuge, Choked Estuary or the likes, or if you can spend the few bucks/know someone who trades you some Creeping Tar Pit or Darkslick Shores.
Also you need a few card draw spells since you will end up empty handed if you cant refill your hand.There are plenty options to choose from.

Changed it up a bit. The older version was a little too slow for my liking and I am really enjoying Deathcult Rogue. Attaching a Trepanation Blade or a Paranoid Delusions to him has been pretty deadly. Thinking about possibly adding a few Invisible Stalker into the deck for some unblockable damage but not to sure what to take out. I think that card would work out well with the equip/cipher cards.

Link all cards in your question.

Just some ideas...
Psychic Strike might also be worth considering because of the added mill.
I hope it helped! :D
