Slither Blade Discussion

There can be a really interesting blue white auras deck in the format but this one has a couple weaknesses. Because of all your one of cards, this deck can lack some consistency. Things like ethereal armor, daybreak coronet, and spirit mantle are the best auras in the format so even if it is outside of your budget to play four of each it is definitely something to work towards. Another big weakness of not only this deck but auras in general is that if your creature dies then all your auras die with it. There are whoever ways to counter this downside. An example of this is protection and hex proof effects such as Apostle's Blessing , Dive Down , or Slippery Bogle . One of the best things a deck like this is play a creature on turn one and then on turn two play and aura and attack. Thankfully there are a few options for 1 mana creatures such as Slippery Bogle and Slither Blade . There also seems to be a fairly high density of creatures in this deck which might not be the best option because the best way that you can use auras is by putting them o one creature and making it huge. If you played Bruna, 4 Slippery Bogle , 2 Slither Blade , 4 Kor Spiritdancer , and 2 Hero of Iroas that would probably be plenty.Your land count is good but your mana base is slightly slow with the tap lands. I would get three more Port Town seeing as it is good budget option and replace the lands that come in tapped and gain you life. Since modern can be a fairly quick format and you are trying to get to Bruna mana, I would recommend some cheap counter spells to try and go on a tempo plan. Some options to keep in mind are Spell Pierce and Spell Snare . All in all this is a great first attempt (better than I could of done when I started brewing) and if you wanted to start winning tournaments with a deck like this it is completely possible. P.S. Enlightened Tutor is not modern legal

You need more one-drops. All you have right now is Faerie Miscreant, and Hidden Strings, Morsel Theft, Noggin Whack, and Stinkdrinker Bandit all get better when they can be consistently played on turn 2 (Stinkdrinker and Noggin Whack in particular). Without a solid one-drop suite most of the time you'll only be playing those cards on turn 3, which is too slow against many decks. I recommend you play at least 10 one-drops, more if possible. Slither Blade is the best one available, Triton Shorestalker is the worse version of it and Vampire Cutthroat can give some life gain.

Like RedmundR2 said, you need some turn one plays. May I suggest Slither Blade, and Triton Shorestalker. Both of them are 1 mana rogues to trigger prowl as early as turn 2, which I think would help your game plan a lot. Otherwise, nice deck!

Slither Blade (1 cost) in, Deathcult Rogue (3 cost) out. Drop your removal for 3x each hand hate cards Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, so you're not guessing your defense strategy and counter timing. If your strapped for cash, try Despise and Duress. This leaves you 2 open slots for Bident of Thassa.
Your curve is so low, Drop down to 3x Mana Leak and drop a Swamp for perhaps 2x Wharf Infiltrator. Bumping your draw mechanic, working with your evasion archetype, and makes use of your duplicate Land, Throne of the God-Pharaohs, and Bident of Thassa.

Looks fun! I’d probably recommend using bigger playsets of fewer creatures. Some of these seem a little redundant. For example, instead of having 2 Slippery Scoundrels and 2 Departed Deckhands, you could just have 4 Departed Deckhands.
Some things, such as Triton Shorethief, Master of Waves, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Entrancing Melody, and Frost Walker seem a little bit random as well. Its kinda like you have 2 decks that got mushed together. Id try to focus on this unblockable thing you have going and get rid of the fluff.
There are also cards that are a straight upgrade from current cards in here. Like Slither Blade being the same as Triton Shorethief, but with the unblockable ability you’re looking for. So I’d probably do some research and see what cards do these abilities with less conditions and similar mana costs.
Finally, I don’t really see any big wincons. Looks like you’re pretty much just trying to whittle down your opponents life bar with unblockables. Try to find something that uses being unblockable to your advantage that will act as a big finisher.
