Okay, brace yourself. I'm going all out.

  • P.S. Sorry that my inner spike ignores price...

So regarding turn 3 wins...

I would say they are highly unlikely since if your Baral, Chief of Compliance / Goblin Electromancer eats a Lightning Bolt / Fatal Push / Collective Brutality... etc. on turn 2, you will need a minor miracle to win.

As in such case your rituals produce only .
Which means that you would need 1 ritual to Gifts Ungiven.
and 4 more rituals to be able to cast Past in Flames on turn 3.

And if you run only Grapeshot & Empty the Warrens any sensible player will put those in the grave, and let you whatever else you searched up.

(Creature removal is not exactly rare in modern decks - while your deck doesn't have ways to interact with it when you tap out on turn 2 to cast your creatures (no Disrupting Shoal or Pact of Negation)

I would also like to mention that relying on instant/sorcery cards in the grave to combo off is very risky in modern - there are just to many things that hate on the grave.
Plus everyone sideboards grave hate coz dredge.

Scavenging Ooze, Dryad Militant
Grafdigger's Cage, Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt
And the worst of all Rest in Peace & Leyline of the Void
(+ pesky Leyline of Sanctity - which screams scoop, if Empty the Warrens fails

Please tell me how do you win on turn 3 in such a situation!

P.s.: Storm Entity may help with going off on t3, as it could be the third target for Gifts Ungiven - but it still can't win in itself.

I would tighten up the auras a bit. By far, the best effect is Spirit Mantle, so I would boost those for sure.
Other than that, it really comes down to testing. In the games you win, which cards are good, and which are meh? In the games you lose, what went wrong and what could help?
From first look, I'd want some more absolute answers in the sideboard (e.g. Rest in Peace, Creeping Corrosion, Circle of Protection: Red, etc..)

11/12/17 Update: I decided to make a few adjustments to the list:Mainboard-1 Island-1 Plains-1 Bygone Bishop-3 Unclaimed Territory+ 2 Seachrome Coast+1 Kataki, War's Wage+2 Moorland Haunt+1 Geist of Saint Traft

Sideboard-2 Relic of Progenitus-2 Pithing Needle-3 Ceremonious Rejection-1 Kataki, War's Wage+2 Rest in Peace+ 3 Disdainful Stroke+3 Duress

With a top end of CMC 3 in my curve, 24 lands were probably too many, so I cut down to 23, and I'll see how that plays. Unclaimed Territory seems good still, but not having colored mana to cast Lingering Souls, Fatal Push, or Path to Exile seems a little bit sketchy. If I'm going to run colorless lands, I'd rather that they do something proactive, like Moorland Haunt which can create additional threats or blockers. I picked up a second copy of Geist of Saint Traft, so Bygone Bishop is now out. Finally, I moved a copy of Kataki, War's Wage into the mainboard, both as an additional 2 mana aggressive creature, and to hose any decks utilizing artifacts. This list doesn't have any artifacts, so Kataki seems quite versatile.

As for the sideboard, Relic of Progenitus seems less useful than Rest in Peace, which acts as a permanent piece of graveyard hate that also hoses persist and undying creatures. I was initially worried about the negative synergy with Lingering Souls, but if I need graveyard hate enough to board it in, I'd rather have reliable graveyard hate than the flashback from Lingering Souls. I also dropped Pithing Needle,as, even though it's quite a powerful card, generally my deck wants to be more aggressive and proactive. I added in 3 copies of Duress instead, since I had 3 spots open after moving 1 copy of Kataki, War's Wage to the mainboard. Duress seems versatile by hitting planeswalkers and combo pieces from my opponent's hand. Creatures aren't as much of a concern, since I'm running so many removal spells, so I didn't feel as though Thoughtseize was warranted. Lastly, I replaced the 3 copies of Ceremonious Rejection with an equal number of Disdainful Stroke,which despite costing 1 more mana seems far more reliable and useful in its application. Let me know what you think!

You're running 4x Snapcaster Mage. Rest in Peace makes them useless. Try Nihil Spellbomb instead. I would also ditch the sideboard Dispel and Negate for 2x Collective Brutality.

Otherwise, very cool deck. +1

Hi! Love the Faerie idea!

You'd probably be safe cutting:

Brainstorm cantrips arnt' as useful in EDH I feel. Same for Ponder and Preordain. Pick one I'd say.

Rest in Peace(unless your meta is really tricky with the 'yard)

Search for Azcanta  Flip only seems just okay to me.

Sigil of the Empty Throne my be considered as a cut. It doesn't work when Zur cheats out enchantments and is higher up on the curve. Still, It's a good card.

Stoneforge Mystic, as good as she is, can probably be cut to focus the deck on faeries. She deserves to be built around.

Nectar Faerie seems kinda weak. You have mostly 1/1 faeries.

Hope this helps! It was difficult; this is a pretty tight list!

P.S. you have the Top but no Land Tax??

BrandonJamesCAC on Budget U/W Control

Yeah for sure.

I'll stay within budget too.

Wheel of Sun and Moon because

Rest in Peace is expensive for storm decks.

Stony Silence or a couple

Disenchant for affinity.

Condemn and Mirran Crusader for Death's Shadow.

Ceremonious Rejection for Eldrazi.

Dispel and something like

Sphinx of the Final Word for mirror.

Sweet deck, i think Wrath is more a sideboard card, that would free u the 2 main deck slots. And in the sideboard im missing 2-3 Rest in Peace, i would cut Angels Grace, Holy Day, Blood Baron and Ghostly Prison (I think they still can atack Planeswalkers without paying). Then add the 2 Wraths from the Mainboard and 2 RIP.
