MountainMan817I hadn't thought about noxious that's a good choice thank you I was actually going to trade out Feldon's Cane for Relic of Progenitus

Sensei's Divining Top seems like an auto-include in your top-deck hero style deck.

Learn from the Past is a lil sketchy...I thought you were a mill deck? ;) Grave hate is gud but you can just be running Relic of Progenitus effects. The synergy upsides are nais but not worth running a meh card.

Arcane Melee seems like an overcosted mana rock on average. You aren't storming off, on average.

Ashnod's Altar is an somewhat odd include in your super low creature count deck??? Putting Kefnoot into your library might be an ok if ballsy move sometimes but idk if it's worth such a dedicated sac outlet. You only have like 3 token generators...

Not to be a degenerate sicko mode boi Laboratory Maniac or new jace maniac?

Maybe Relic of Progenitus is something to consider, but you already have Thought Scour in for the last shot... I think you are doing well with all those counter spells. For me your deck is very nice, I like your ideas. After some play testing you will do some changes, this is also a part of a deck building process. I'm curious how you're going to improve your deck in the next time ;)

For your research, my EDH-deck is this one: Kill and Run (Lazav)

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of cards that I've made work in mono-black in modern. Mono black devotion is pretty diverse in the number of cards that are playable on an LGS level, even if many of those adaptations suffer in longer tournaments.

In regards to planning your sideboard, I find it best to see those fifteen cards as extensions to the rest of the deck, and in metas where I see something a lot i just maindeck that and get three-four card slots.

Key cards when picking those fifteen are Ratchet Bomb to answer tokens and enchantments, Whip of Erebos to turn into massive midrange value, Surgical Extraction / Relic of Progenitus / Leyline of the Void because screw graveyard decks, Raven's Crime because screw control, and Collective Brutality which is just a great card.

If you are looking at sticking a big enchantment to close out the game Painful Quandary usually does better than the sanguine/blood combo.

I have a friend that runs a budget-y version of spirits, and let me tell you Remand is super important to his strategy. However, he is not running a Tallowisp package either which eats up some slots...

A good budget card for this strategy is Ojutai's Command . It's pretty flexible and says draw a card and can work as an ALTERNATIVE to Cryptic Command if you want to. I don't know that that's necessary either though.

As for some sideboard options, graveyard hate should be a number one priority right now with dredge and Arclight Phoenix being silly. Rest in Peace is probably the best card for your list, however, Relic of Progenitus and Tormod's Crypt would also work (Relic > Tormod's). A great creature for this list in the sideboard is Remorseful Cleric as it can serve as a creature or as graveyard hate, so maybe consider this as well.

Some counter magic in the side is also great, namely Negate to beat up on any and all non creature spells as well as Spell Snare to just stop 2-drops ( Snapcaster Mage , Manamorphose and any of storms Rituals or Dorks to name a few). Other great options against storm (and storm type decks, looking at you Phoenix type of decks) can be Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Render Silent and even Silence to stall out a turn.

For your sideboard right now, I'd for sure recommend putting in...

2x Relic of Progenitus

2x Remorseful Cleric

2x Spell Snare

1x Negate

and then removing...

2x Spell Pierce

2x Mana Leak

1x Lavinia, Azorius Renegade

2x Nebelgast Herald

so I'll adjust my sideboard accordingly,

-1 Harbinger of the Tides + 1 Echoing Truth so I have 2x Echoing Truth and 2x Hurkyl's Recall ( i went with echoing because I feel like I should not be troubled too much by creatures that should force me to run vapor snag due to island-walk being a thing.)

-1 Harbinger of the Tides +1 Wizard's Retort i mean 18 wizards should do the trick xD

-2 Watertrap Weaver +1 Wizard's Retort and +1 Relic of Progenitus because i seem to need it and forgot :)

-1 Negate +1 Wizard's Retort so i can sit on 3 combined with the other counters

For the mainboard, I am either thinking of taking out the Merrow Reejerey as you said because it isn't as popular anymore... and put in 4 Benthic Biomancer ? was also looking at Phantasmal Image for more lords and stuff but that doesn't get played either + it dies to bounce :s... Or play the 4 retorts mainboard and add the biomancers in the side if I really need to race or have card draw while pitching some dead lands draws in the late game sound good as well. aaaaaaaaaaaaa decisions xD

DrValium: The issue is that 1) my permanent count is very low in this deck, 2) I generally don't have a huge number of tokens unless I've either won or something is very wrong (since this is primarily an infinite combo deck; I don't plan to keep tokens around for long), and 3) 8 mana is a lot, even for a wincon :( Thanks for the suggestion though!

FlamingSamich: I'd probably swap in Back to Basics , Blood Moon , and Ruination , for Compulsion , Stranglehold , and Relic of Progenitus , maybe?
