Mind Over Matter seems really good here, discard engine that untaps berit

Also Render Silent, Detention Sphere, Supreme Verdict Austere Command,Merciless Eviction Anguished Unmaking are good removal spells to consider

Also, Umbral Mantle for lols

1: May I suggest replacing Psychic Strike with Render Silent? In my experience, adding to an opponent's graveyard can sometimes turn out in the opponent's favor. On the other hand, nobody really like's being told "no spells for you".

2: Rings of Brighthearth can not copy mana producing abilities. The only non-planeswalker cards in your current list are Deadeye Navigator (the copy might as well have no effect), Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (you should only need to use it once, ever), and Lighthouse Chronologist (+1 counter for x2 mana).

2.5: As much as I like the rings, in this deck they would just be a cheaper-but-limited The Chain Veil.

To make this deck levels better, Fabricate and Thoughtcast for card advantage, Path to Exile or Fatal Push for removal, Marsh Flats, Flooded Strand, and Polluted Delta for a bit of land advantage, and Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, and Godless Shrine for a serious land base.

Switch Paradise Plume for the signets:

For planeswalkers:

The best counterspell for this deck is Stoic Rebuttal, and another fun choice is Render Silent, or Dromar's Charm.

With charms come Esper Charm, the best of the best, and if you need mana, Silver Myr, Gold Myr, Leaden Myr, or Palladium Myr are all great choices in artifacts.

Under Tribal for artifacts you have:

Other than that, maybe Academy Ruins?

I am a bit burnt out now, let me know if I helped out!

I appreciate the suggestions! Thank you alot. I agree with the mana curve suggestions, i should perhaps consider cards like Path to Exile as mentioned.

I like the planeswalkers for a few reasons. Their main purpose in this deck is to provide a bit of a meat shield for a turn or two or how ever long i can keep them alive. Alot of times when i am playing my friends they freak out when they see a planeswalker enter the battlefield especially one like Venser, the Sojourner with a scary ultimate emblem, and they usually want to focus them as soon as they can. So I through them out when the time is right for a bit of a distraction for a couple of turns. And Venser and Narset Transcendent just seem to be perfect matches for the deck, Venser especially so. BUT I could see the benefit in removing them. Not sure i will though, they are just so cool.

I also was unaware that counterspell was illegal, good thing it was only on the sideboard. I actually dont have a side board for this deck in real life, i just kind of consider a side board and a maybe board the same way. But i really like the idea of Render Silent. It would likely be the best option in my opinion.

Also i will consider your suggestions on Venser, Shaper Savant and Ghostly Flicker.

Thanks again sir!

I love UW control decks and I love Ravnica, therefor detain decks are super fun and interesting to me.

I'm not too into Modern, but I have done a little bit here and there. Unfortunately Counterspell is illegal in Modern, so I would recommend swapping it to either Remand or Render Silent if you want to stay on theme, but still have nice counter magic. You could also/instead choose to use Arcane Denial, Mana Leak, or Rune Snag (if you ran 4x Rune Snag).

I would recommend lowering the overall curve of this deck as well. Having some removal like Path to Exile, Condemn, and/or Swords to Plowshares can be very beneficial.

I would say to get rid of the Planeswalkers personally, for more blink and flicker. I think Venser, Shaper Savant should possibly go back in. You could accompany him with Ghostway or Flickerform to add enough redundancy to your game plan.

Long story short, I like the deck and these builds because they are really controlling and can be quite cheap. If you have any questions, you could look into my UW detain EDH deck for inspiration (majority of the cards are Modern legal):

I am also happy to answer any questions if you have any!

hello there!

you've done a great job assembling a budget prison deck! IMO you could cut guardian of tazeem for Icefall Regent, as tapping a creature every turn is great, but you only have 6 islands to make use of doesn't untap on their next untap step . icefall regent also has its own protection, which I believe stacks with all the other additional cost effects.

Cutting an alhammaret might work out better, because it's 7 mana and can get stuck in your hand easily. You could add Nevermore, or Render Silent, however they are both 3 mana and don't help with fixing your curve.

The best way to fix your curve is to add Runed Halo, but adding a playset will increase your deck price. Also adding Meddling Mage may work out well. Venarian Glimmer can cut cards from your opponent's hand, as well as letting you see what they have.

for a potential budget sideboard, Withering Gaze and Baleful Stare benefit you for your opponent's colors.

Valor Made Real, Awe Strike, Render Silent for those pesky combo decks. Fool's Demise because yes. Winds of Rath compliments all of these, and Cleansing Meditation can be situationally fanastic. and don't forget that Oblivion Ring or Detention Sphere, as they combo brilliantly with your commander.

I have these two partner commanders and find them pretty awesome and one-shotting people within a table cycle or two.

I generally try to find Sunforger as soon as I can as this allows me to access any Red/White instants from my deck to protect as needed, opening up a much wider way to protect Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker. By replacing mono-blue instants with multi-colored ones this opens your effective hand up more much more. Suffocating Blast, Render Silent or Hindering Light give you some countspells for access. Master Warcraft is also available for some combat tricks, Boros Charm for protection and Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares for removal.

Open the Armory seems useful with your voltron style.

1+ from me!
