Sphinx of the Final Word, though its expensive for modern. Pearl Lake Ancient.

Since this is a pretty casual deck, I'd recommend swapping Pearl Lake Ancient for an AEtherling, it doesn't have flash, but its more versatile than the ancient.

I made a casual mono blue deck once built around Boomerang and similar spells. my closer was a one-of Scourge of Fleets. I called it.."ya gotta bounce bro" lol My all-time favorite kraken however is the one I used in my very first standard deck.Pearl Lake Ancient back in the theros, dragon's, Khan's day when I first learned to play magic at "Bell,Book and Comic's" of Kettering Ohio. Pete has a good crowd of people to learn with. I miss the scry lands and Dissolve, most of all my turn two Omenspeaker. But I don't miss Stoke the Flames one bit. jeskai assendency was brutal back in the day. lol Thanks for reminding me of how it all started tho. so many good times

EpicMaster99 Archive Trap feels like a must to me, especially in a format where people run fetch lands. More often than not you'll get to cast it for free turn 1 and even if you draw it late, 5 mana for 13 card mill isn't bad. Phantom Warrior seems out of place to me, in that he's just a 2/2 for 3 in this deck with no cipher cards or curiosity to make use of his unblockableness. Pearl Lake Ancient At least is a huge freakin body that can block anything in modern, but he's a super late play so he may not see play. As you are running no counters your board control is fully in the form of creatures and that may end up being a problem against some decks.

I'd say try it out as is, see how it goes against other modern decks in friendly games and make adjustments as you see fit. That being said, archive trap for sure =P

Arbosa Ive taken one Minister of Inquiries out. Do you think I should remove the other one, and the Pearl Lake Ancient and Phantom Warrior. Thanks for the help

I like the deck for sure. I would definitely recommend some Prowess creatures, as it just like a wasted opportunity to not run them in this kind of Izzet deck. Monastery Swiftspear, Mage-Ring Bully, Stormchaser Mage, Pearl Lake Ancient, and Sage-Eye Avengers could all do really well in this deck.

If you like to make things Unblockable then you might want Rogue's Passage.

Rhystic Study helps with draw.

I don't really understand why you are running As Foretold, when you only have one Instant.

The whole idea of that card is to let you play Instants for no cost on each turn your Opponents turns.

Speaking of, since you're in Blue I would highly recommend some Counter spells. My favourites are Counterspell, Deprive, Force of Will, and Mana Drain, although that last one is very pricey.

There are lots of cheaper ones such as Dissolve.

I think you are running WAY too many Artifacts, and hardly any of them help you Ramp.

I would remove all but a couple of the better Swords, and replace them with Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, and some of the Counter spells I mentioned.

Another fun Commander Creature is Pearl Lake Ancient. It is quite easy to protect in the late stage.

Of course I don't know your play group. This deck may be perfect against them if it is quite casual.

dotytron I love your find of Paradox Haze - I never thought of trying to increase the number of upkeeps, it's genius! The problem with Thassa, God of the Sea is that she isn't a creature without the devotion cost being met, so while she synergises with Culling Scales she doesn't synergise with Porphyry Nodes. With the current build it'd almost be impossible to get her devotion up enough too - I had thought of her synergy with Culling Scales ages ago and was so shocked when they printed Kefnet the Mindful - the perfect upgrade!

Neckworn I think having a land bounce synergy is an awesome idea, and it had occurred to me, the deck just isn't polished enough for me to have worked it in yet. Don't forget though,Kefnet the Mindful isn't the only land bouncer, Deprive can do this too. Another cool card that could be included if you really wanted to go down that pathway would be Pearl Lake Ancient or the white/blue bounce lands. Other good lands to bounce and replay would be ones like Halimar Depths or Kabira Crossroads. This land bounce deck is almost a whole other deck idea!

Ragithor - best description of the deck so far haha.
