Sub Duress for Thoughtseize

Either max your island count or remove Mystic Sanctuary

Sub Sinister Sabotage for Absorb

Hero's Downfall / Fatal Push / Murderous Rider for Mortify

Drown in the Loch is pretty bad in pioneer unless you're milling your opponent, IMO

Cut big tef, go up to 3x t3f

Also wants Opt

Regardless of how you run the mana, you'll want Fabled Passage and/or checklands

There's potential, here. Cheers!

Veil of Summer should be on the CounterCounter section.

Also, I'm quite fond of the 3 CMC counters: Unwind , Sinister Sabotage , Thought Collapse , Didn't Say Please

Also, creature that act as counters like Siren Stormtamer and Frilled Mystic .

Today I got a few more wildcards, so we got

Additionally, I changed out the Despark for a Time Wipe (currently a Ritual of Soot )

You could probably get more effective use out of Cancel or Essence Scatter rather than giving the creatures back to them. If you really want any of your friends to not like the deck you could also go for more outright control like Counterspell . If you did want something pioneer friendly Sinister Sabotage is a good option which also gives some control over your next turn.

Not super happy with the 1 Despark left (down from 3 originally) but still debating what to put there. As of writing still down:

Also I know the land base is by far not optimal (really need to take advantage of all the scry lands) but I don't have the rare wildcards to do so.

Collective Brutality reverses the problem you have with Thoughtseize while also providing disruption. Merfolk Secretkeeper is good in this deck. The full four Breaking/Enterings are probably the right move here. Instead of Cyc Rift , how about Languish or Ritual of Soot ? Dissolve is both worse than Sinister Sabotage and Didn't Say Please . If you're really fixated on the Wight and Abberation plan, go ahead, but a few more sweepers could make this deck into more of a control deck. Right now it's leaning more towards agro-mill. If that's what you want, consider Vantress Gargoyle . Otherwise, I'd throw in a playlet of Fatal Push and ways to refill your hand, such as a playlet of Into the Story , an under appreciated yet powerful card in this deck.

- 2x Chandra, Awakened Inferno - 4x Devious Cover-Up - Sinister Sabotage - 4x Oath of Teferi - Everything except maybe Ixalan's Binding and possibly a copy of AEtherize from the sideboard.
- You want 24-26 lands for a control deck. Unless you want to go faster, in which case you need to completely change what kind of counterspells you're running. Field of Ruin is super good to deal with a flipped Azcanta and similar. - Essence Scatter and Negate / Dovin's Veto . Mana cost is everything, at the cost of utility. - Absorb against Burn, Render Silent vs Control - Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is one of the best walkers ever. - Chandra, Torch of Defiance would be better in a more burn-centric deck as well. - I've found that Blessed Alliance is an amazingly versatile card against Bogles, Burn, and even control (sometimes) - Disenchant . Need I say more? - Cyclonic Rift is legal in this format. - Dig Through Time / Treasure Cruise are some of the best spells available in this format (inb4 the bans), but it may be difficult to support the heavy Delve requirements. - Detention Sphere is probably better than Intervention. - The Sulfur Falls cycle to complement your shocklands
