Whenever Snapcaster Mage enters the battlefield, target instant or sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The flashback cost is equal to it's mana cost. (You may cast that card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

and a Reanimate from the graveborn deck series
I am interested in your

A lot of your creatures are really bad, Vampire Nighthawk doesn't do enough to be included in any EDH deck and beatsticks like Jace's Phantasm , AEtherling and Wight of Precinct Six are bad in EDH as creatures should never be picked for their P/T but instead for their abilities.
Cards you should be playing
I would rather not run equipment like Infiltration Lens in a deck with only 4 creatures. It would usually do nothing but be a dead draw. The things I would consider swapping Relic of Progenitus with include Mishra's Bauble , Ghost Quarter , All Is Dust , and Wurmcoil Engine . As it is now, it serves as a great thing to sideboard out, lets me basically play a 19 card sideboard, cantrips and shuts down most of the modern staple creatures (namely Tarmogoyf , Snapcaster Mage and Scavenging Ooze ).
The most important thing about playing tri-color and Modern in general is having a strong mana base. Typically this would mean plenty of Fetches and a few shocks and basics. However as an alternative, you could fill it out with enough Watery Grave and Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine so that you could comfortably run the M13 checklands Drowned Catacomb and Glacial Fortress , as well as a few basics, maybe switching a few out for Mutavault if you wish.
If you're running Esper control you should also have a strong removal and disruption package. Thoughtseize and Vendilion Clique or Inquisition of Kozilek for disruption, and then Mana Leak , Path to Exile , Cryptic Command , and Spell Snare for removal. Spell Snare hits Goyf, Bob, Scooze, Snapcaster, and other uglies.
In terms of mill, what I think could be effective are some Consuming Aberration with a playset of Glimpse the Unthinkable and Snapcaster Mage to repeatedly abuse it. Sword of Body and Mind with a couple Stoneforge Mystic could work, but would likely be slow.
I know it's not much budget-oriented, but at least it doesn't involve a $600 dollar mana base. Wait until the fetches are reprinted.
I have some Snapcaster Mage s amongst other things and would really like to get my hands on a Damnation promo, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and/or a Scroll Rack please check out my binder and lmk if we can work something out, thanks :)
SharuumNyan - So you cut one of the best cards in the deck, Underworld Connections
, and a removal spell for two copies of Conspiracy
in the mainboard? For a card you think would push MBD over the top, making it a 2-of isn't a strong endorsement. Cards that break metas have to be 4-ofs at least. Look at DRS or Snapcaster Mage
. Those cards are/were 4-ofs in every Modern deck that can/could run them.
The reason that MBD wins is because of its creature quality and heavy removal suite. While Bile Blight is much better in the mirror, there isn't a cut I could justify for the deck. Additionally, the inclusion of Conspiracy isn't about what Gary can do. We already know what he can do. It's about whether the inclusion would benefit Pack Rat enough that you wouldn't just pitch it to Pack Rat in the early game.
Ok, going to suggest somethings here. I would argue Elspeth, Knight-Errant
is a bit better than sun champion, but the 25$ price tag might be a bit hiigh. Remove Cancel
is being reprinted in the new duel deck, get two of those instead. Spell Snare
is a better card than Logic Knot
in this format, but LK is good as a one of. Gideon Jura
is something to consider over chandra. Electrolyze
over Magma Jet
Tour De Control is my take on u/w/r control in modern, ok, removing the big pricey cards from consideration, like the Cryptic Command s and Snapcaster Mage s, Vendilion Clique , you can do better with it. There is also a flash version that uses Restoration Angel and Geist of Saint Traft .
Also, there is a delver/pyromancer build out there running around. Which this might do better as, going more for u/r tempo than this.
