Restore Balance is white.
Each player chooses a number of lands he or she controls equal to the number of lands controlled by the player who controls the fewest, then sacrifices the rest. Players sacrifice creatures and discard cards the same way.

Restore Balance Discussion

BrandonJamesCAC - how does affinity not care about Restore Balance? They have ways around it, but still, a turn 3 Restore Balance seems like it would kill off all their creatures, leaving only manlands, and even getting rid of all the +1/+1 counters from Arcbound Ravager. Actually, wouldn't most aggro decks lose almost all their stuff to a turn 3 Restore Balance, now we're at it? And I can't remember any aggro decks that play remand... It even circumvents indestructibility by having the controller sacrifice, rather than destroy, creatures and lands.
Search for Azcanta seems like it's maybe good enough for standard, but pretty bad in modern, where you'll almost always want to spend turn 2 doing something to interact with your opponent. If games with this deck tends to be very long, a single copy could be good, I think - grindy, griiiindyyyy card advantage over the long run.
Ghostly Prison could be something for this deck, perhaps in sideboard.

Yeah I'm not seeing how
Search for Azcanta relates to winning in this deck.
So for 2 mana, and 3 turns, you get a Thought Scour?
Being a control deck, your two drops need to be powerful.
Turn 2, I want to be putting a
Spreading Seas on a Tron land
Or Casting a Mana Leak on
And if I don't need to be doing either of those things, I want to be cantripping at my opponent end step.
It's an interesting concept but the decks you will struggle with, affinity, burn etc...
Don't care about
Remand on a suspend card is hilarious.
I'm not saying your idea is bad. I'm saying it won't work in a control deck in modern.

The deck just disrupts until it can get the needed cards to win. With Taigam, Ojutai Master out they cannot be countered. It kind of comes from behind the entire time and people do not see it as much of a threat until you rebound some nasty bounce or board clearing cards.
I am going to play it like this for a while. If it ever becomes not fun to play I will just make it into a really ridiculous deck with time walks.

Well, in modern you have access to a lot of mana rocks. You could think of something using them in combination with Death Cloud, Wildfire or Restore Balance to make your opponent sacrifice all (or most) of their resources, while you still have your rocks to summon the Colossus and beatdown with it.

But the main things I have been testing and that look a hell lot more promising are changing the way the deck is played by a bit. Wheel of Fate is incredibly strong at finding Gargadons and basically anything else (I prefer playing one of it than a third Balance or a fourth Vision to be honest). Simian Spirit Guide is a blast to use when going off with Restore Balance (the hand dumping power of this is real). And probably the most surprising of all: Temporal Mastery without trying to pile up additionnal turns, only for a good old vintage Time Walk for extra suspend, As Foretold, land drop and Chandra value. Just in case I happen to draw some and loot them, I am currently trying Bloodwater Entity which is also very good at reseting a Vision or a Balance on top of the deck, ready for action. ;)

That is a pretty good combination, but I think it's in the wrong colours for this deck. I know I can get pretty much any enchantment through Enduring Ideal, but two off colour spells seems a bit too high risk. Thanks for the suggestion though.
I have been looking at As Foretold as it was originally described to me as Aether Vial for spells. In that regard I thought it would be a way to get around the 'Epic' restriction of Enduring Ideal, but unfortunately it doesn't as the spells are still cast.
I agree the synergy with Ancestral Vision is excellent, but at the moment I don't think there is a place for it in the deck, mostly because I don't own any copies of that $50 card!! I have seen it played in a pretty good deck along with Restore Balance, Greater Gargadon and Living End so definitely respect it's power.
Thanks again for the comment.

Sorry but after few tests with As Foretold, it seem that not so effectiv that everyone think.
