Rune Snag Discussion

Pretty new to modern so I dont have a lot of feedback but I will say Im much more of a fan of running Rune Snag over Mana Leak in the main board. The first one is a bit weaker right off the bat but then becomes way better for the same cmc. Take them for a spin and see how they work out for you!

Good start, but it needs some work. Despise and Duress are not great, you should be running Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize. I'd run a full playset of Polluted Delta in here if you can afford it. You have way too many basics. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth should be a two of, especially if you're running Lashwrithe. Ancestral Vision should be Search for Azcanta  Flip. Rune Snag is not great either, consider a split between Mana Leak, Logic Knot, Remand, and/or Spell Snare. There's way too many creatures in here, I'd cut down to like 6 creatures and throw in some removal and more counterspells. More Dismember, Fatal Push as a 4 of, and at least two Damnation. Also, Jace Beleren doesn't really fit in this deck. I'd do another Ashiok or a Liliana, like Liliana of the Veil or Liliana Vess.

thanks, lukas96. I may pull Sage of Epityr and Fog Bank and add 4x Rune Snag, 2x Spell Pierce to boost the counter-spell side and 1x Sign in Blood for card advantage. Even so, the point of having more creatures would be have enough in the graveyard to cast the Ruinator.

Rune Snag would be better than Deprive

Brandamn, ok so this is what i think I'm going to be testing:

Noxious Revival: is a soft spot, but it seems solid, i mean setting up delver at instant speed is pretty nuts

I prefer Deprive over Logic Knot, knot just doestn senergies well with Bedlam Reveler or Cryptic Serpent, but as a one of i think that it is better then Counterflux

I do have a play set of Rune Snag but i honestly like Mana Leak better, a mana leak is just so much stronger in the early game, and we want to be as strong as possible turns 2-4

also I've thought about dropping 1 Nimble Obstructionist but i love him for the pressure it applies, but i think it's fine as a 2 of for now

What do you think about how the list sits?

Honestly Id run something like this with your current plan in mind of course it is a bit removal light for my taste4x Rune Snag 4x Opt 4x Thought Scour 3x Remand 2x Electrolyze 4x Lightning Bolt 2x Bedlam Reveler 2x Cryptic Serpent 4x Delver of Secrets  Flip 4x Logic Knot 4x Thing in the Ice  Flip

Rune Snag seems superior to Mana Leak in this.

If you run Rune Snag, you definitely want to run 4. The fewer you have, the worse it is, especially since you can mill them with this deck.
