Slippery Bogle Discussion
3 days ago
Have you thought about just making this into a boggles deck? It’d be basically the same thing with different creatures - hexproof ones that can’t be targetted.
Boggling it it would skyrocket this deck from a casual brew to acompetitive nightmare. Have a look at these cards:

Neat. Glorybringer is alright, but the fact that it has to exert to get the full value makes it a lot worse imo for modern. You could consider swapping some number of them (I'd recommend all 3 but maybe that's just me) for Thundermaw Hellkite. Lingering Souls tokens will chump you all day long, this guy stops that. Also very good against Spirits, which has been picking up popularity in the modern meta too. Will even tap down an enchanted Slippery Bogle so you can push dragons through. And if you're really mean it kills Birds of Paradise. All in all I think it's a better 5 mana hastey dragon for modern than Glorybringer is. You could keep 1-2 Glorybringers in sideboard for matchups where you need heavier removal (idk, jund maybe? 4 dmg won't always kill a goyf though). I also think running Blood Moon in main might be a mistake. You're not looking to lock your opponent out of the game so much as you are to aggro them out with big flyers. It could be replaced with more rocks (Pillar of Origins comes to mind) to help the aggro plan or more beaters to make sure you hit your gas. Don't get me wrong, BM is a great sideboard card for you, but I don't think it plays well enough into your plan to warrant running it maindeck.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun! Looks like a fun list!

+1! Love your list a ton!
How about trying out Slippery Bogle?

Glad I was able to be of help! My friends play aggro and tempo almost exclusively so it's nice to share my thoughts on control. :) As for Monastery Mentor, if you really like the card there's nothing wrong with keeping it in. I'm a big advocate of playing what's fun, not necessarily what's the strongest. For example, I absolutely LOVE Esper Charm and refuse to play the colors without it, despite there being much better options. To each their own, eh?
As for sideboard, if your meta is really that big then there's two directions you can take: you can either try to cover the most popular decks, or you can try to cover your decks biggest weaknesses. For popular decks you're looking at five color humans, affinity, burn, Tron and ETron, Grixis shadow, and other UXx control decks. For big weaknesses, usually a deck like this is going to struggle against all forms of Tron and most forms of aggro, not to mention anything that plays Blood Moon. I'd recommend bumping up your Damping Sphere count to 2 or 3 because without it you stand very little chance against Tron, plus it completely hoses Storm as a nice bonus. Spot removal and wraths are ok against aggro decks, but most of them have some effects that go face, plus you may not be able to consistently one-for-one them so they'll chip your life down. I'd recommend looking at Leyline of Sanctity and maybe Timely Reinforcements to shore up that weak point. Covering everything else can be a little tricky since there's so much you can go up against. Stony Silence rocks against affinity, but it usually only takes one wrath top make them scoop so you can probably go down to just one in the board. Nihil Spellbomb is nice since it replaces itself, but the fact that it's a one-time effect makes it significantly less powerful (in my eyes at least) than alternatives like Leyline of the Void and Rest in Peace. Trust me when I say I am the president of the Elspeth, Sun's Champion fan club, but I'm struggling to find a reason to have her in the board. What exactly do you plan to bring her in against? She won't resolve in the control mirror, she's too slow for aggro matchups, she doesn't do shit against Tron, and you're already perfectly set up to fight combo... again, if you really like the card maybe you want to keep it in just because, and that's fine. But in terms of a competitive viable sideboard, she probably doesn't deserve a slot. Bontu's Last Reckoning is a fine wrath in standard, but paying the premium of one more mana for Damnation, Wrath of God, or Supreme Verdict to be able to untap your lands next turn is well worth it. Spell Queller is a powerful tempo card that gives you a body with a pseudo-counterspell, but you maybe better suited running some extra hand attack or some removal for non-creature permanents. If you like the idea of bringing a flying body with your effect you could try Vendilion Clique, which will help deal with the threats before they're even able to cast them. Otherwise you can try an extra Thoughtseize or a Collective Brutality for hand attack, or a Cyclonic Rift or Anguished Unmaking to remove problematic artifacts/enchantments/planeswalkers. Blessed Alliance is also a nice one-of to have in the board since it hits Slippery Bogle and gains you life against aggro.
Building the sideboard is the hardest part of modern in my opinion, so whatever you decide on, good luck!

I like the idea a lot. I recommend taking out 5 cards to take it down to 60 cards so you have a bigger chance of drawing the right cards (Emrakul's Hatcher and some of the enchantments aren't great here imo.)
With your current land-base you might get manascrewed pretty often so lands that give multiple colors of mana would be great. Painted Bluffs and Rupture Spire both slow you down quite a bit, they're not very good. Jungle Shrine is better, enters tapped but mana of any color you need after that. Tranquil Expanse, Timber Gorge and Stone Quarry all work too.
Looking forward to updates!

Super cool deck. I might be missing the point here, but what exactly do you plan to cast all these bestows upon? I'm worried that if you beef up one monstrous creature, it'll be really susceptible to removal spells unless it's like, a Slippery Bogle or Gladecover Scout or something.
Also, I wonder if Hero of Iroas might help you get some of your auras out faster?
Hope you don't mind my questions/suggestions, I'm inspired to try and build a deck sort of like this myself now!

I need suggestions on how I should add blue to the deck so I can use Geist of Saint Traft, Slippery Bogle, and a couple other decent blue options. I also have thoughts for green, with Rancor and Alpha Authority any advice accepted
