Power Sink Discussion
5 days ago
sideboard: Apostle's Blessing or Mizzium Skin? you could play Spire Golem to block delver of secrets. maybe Feldon's Cane/Propaganda vs mill or tokens? Power Sink, Keep Watch, Repeal, Relic of Progenitus or Blue Elemental Blast could be options.

Looks quite solid on first glance. You run lot's of good cards and your curve and average cmc looks good. However you also run a few bad cards. Let me pitch some ideas for replacements:
Maybe try Kindred Discovery and name drake? Could be worth it and might draw an insane amount of cards.Maybe Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and target yourself with the -2 if you have lot's of drakes.Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel because keeping 20 counters in hand is fun.
If you ever run close to milling yourself, try fitting Laboratory Maniac in as another fun wincon.If that way doesn't work you can try the opposite path and go recurring stuff with Timetwister(Budget: Day's Undoing / Time Reversal)
Refill your entire hand with Windfall.
More playable counterspells in no particular power order Abjure, Condescend, Flusterstorm(Opponents also help with storm), Logic Knot, !!!Mana Drain!!!, Memory Lapse, Mental Misstep(if your meta is running many 1cmc spells), Spell Snare, Miscalculation, Power Sink, Pact of Negation, Prohibit, Remand, Spell Siphon, Syncopate, Dissolve, maybe Unified Will. Please don't play all of them, some of the conditional ones might be VERY bad. Sometimes a Cancel is better than a cmc2 conditional that you can't cast for some reason. You know how your deck plays and what fit's in there. More here: http://magiccards.info/query?q=o%3Acounter+o%3Atarget+o%3Aspell+c%21u+cmc%3C%3D3&v=card&s=cname
As I said this is some ideas, some might be very bad but most should be quite good in the deck. There's so many ways to play Talrand, just keep playing lot's of spells so you keep making free drakes. Maybe even play Phyrexian Altar and or Ashnod's Altar to pitch your drakes in to pay for more counterspells..
If you ask specific questions and provide some info about your meta I'd be happy to help :)

Cool idea. Does lacking any sort of counters or removal ever become a problem for you? Perhaps Power Sink, being a counter that taps lands.

I actually had a non modern-legal version of this deck that used those. It really makes me wish they would reprint Psychic Venom and add it to modern. It heavily relied on Mana Short, Drain Power, and Power Sink. It was glorious.

Wow. With friends like that, who needs enemies? I like how you did not go the complete stax way. That way is super OP, but no one (including the player) has any fun. Good deck.
I'd recommend a Power Sink. My friend uses it to great effect.
Plus 1 from me.

Jace's Sanctum or Iceberg? I think it will fit in with your ramp spells. Recall? Sphinx's Tutelage for another end game? Syncopate or Dissipate or Spell Blast or Power Sink? I think some more draw wouldn't hurt anything, consider these - Tolarian Winds? Windfall? Stroke of Genius? Prosperity? Read the Runes? Also, where the hell is Guile? That card makes me want to play Baral, even if it's a shittier Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace. Hope this help <3
