Master_Of_Obscure_Blue_Spells on Temur Man Lands

Okay, Modern is not my strong suit, but this looks like two different decks mashed together. What I see is half of a bad-Scapeshift deck and half of a bad counter-burn deck. However, the deck is called Temur Manlands, so I'll make my suggestions based on that. The first thing I would do is ditch those crappy fatties. Roil Elemental sucks, and should be replaced with 2xPrimeval Titan. I would remove 2xSylvan Scrying for 2XSakura-Tribe Elder. Stormbreath Dragon actually seems fine, and it dodges most removal, but four copies are a bit much, especially since it is a five-drop that has no synergy with the rest of the deck, so I think the right choice would be to take two out for 2xExplore. Also, you have no removal in a format that is all removal. Move those Spell Pierces to the sideboard and replace them with 4xLightning Bolt (or just take them out of the list altogether, since none of your non-land creatures really need to stay and your Manlands will be turned off most of the time). Also, Banefire is kinda ass. Take them out and replace them with 2xBonfire of the Damned and 2xMagma Jet. In order to help with consistency, take out the Temur Ascendencys and the Mindswipes for 4xSerum Visions, and Boundless Realms is WAY to expensive for what is does. Just take it out and add another Urban Evolution. Finally, I think taking out the Rattleclaw Mystics for 3xSearch for Tomorrow and one more Explore. It's probably a good idea to take out an Island for one more copy of Explore, because it helps you get your Manlands out.

These suggestions will help you lower your curve, which is extremely important in Modern. But it seems like a really neat concept, so I hope these suggestions helped!

You're welcome in advance, MOOBS

Well I'm putting in cards to keep a theme of unblockable and stealing creatures so Sheoldred, Whispering One, Roil Elemental are good for keeping ur opponents field empty and urs continously growing. Then cards like Key to the City, Elusive Tormentor, and Invisible Stalker would really play well off the commanders ability

@hookedonkronix: I like Spellskite, don't get me wrong, but Phyrexian Metamorph has too many juicy targets, such as the mana doublers, or the Amulet of Vigor, with which you can start stacking triggers from having two of them. Instantly enables going infinite.

@feyn_do_alduin: Drain Power isn't used much, probably due to being very situational. Weaker in multiplayer anyway, and I'd have to replace a counterspell to fit it in. I'd rather have a Counterspell.

@feyn_do_alduin: The deck has Roil Elemental...

@Mgsegal: This deck does have flavor, but not really on purpose. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage could be fit in I suppose, maybe replace Flow of Ideas, although I think that cards better, as you'll draw in insane number of cards off your many islands. So why spend way more money for Tamiyo?

@Basuei: Thanks! It's fun as hell to play, but not easy. it's almost like solving a puzzle every turn, seeing when and how you can go off with what pieces!

hfvalenz: This deck is mainly a combo deck, but Moonfolk Offering is pretty cool for sure. Terrain Generator is just not very good, considering the commander does it way better. As for Coral Atoll, I think it's worse than it looks, since you can't even tap the island it's going to replace. Pretty lame.

As for Dizzy Spell, I had looked at adding it, but it's just not worth a slot. The reason something like Muddle the Mixture is so good is because it's good on it's own, as a counterspell. Dizzy Spell just sucks on it's own. And there's a plethora of artifact tutors in this deck to find the Amulet.

All fantastic ideas, for sure, since I do run Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, and Vizier of Many Faces (even though I keep forgetting to update...)

I would put in Roil Elemental and Rhystic Study for sure if I had them, because...well, Rhystic Study is silly.

I had thoughts about Hypnotic Siren, however it would only work once, as I don't think I can clone it for its Bestow cost, therefore it would only be a one time usage.

I have a Keiga deck too, here's a few of my thoughts from my build.

Guardian of Tazeem & Icefall Regent because they can be political or slow the board down for a turn.

Roil Elemental & Hypnotic Siren: more stealing options in case Keiga cannot stick.

Vizier of Many Faces & Body Double: Vizier gets you 2 clone activations and BD can get a threat from the yard or target a previously used clone to target Keiga and thus steal again.

Fact or Fiction & Rhystic Study: are 2 draw outlets I always jam in my blue decks.

seeing as you've lots of landfall potential here, some can be done at instant speed, I figure it would be prudent to at least consider the more powerful options in mono blue;

Roil Elemental, Retreat to Coralhelm, Hedron Crab, Guardian of Tazeem.

Adventuring Gear is another option worth considering.
