Sub Cancel for either Disallow or, probably better, Sinister Sabotage ; depending on what wincon(s) you like, Didn't Say Please could be excellent, too. You might also consider Censor or Supreme Will for more flexibility.

I would also find room for Overwhelmed Apprentice , and maybe even Vantress Gargoyle . If you add in Opt , you could also reduce land count.

Regarding lands, I would definitely consider two Castle Vantress and some number of Mystic Sanctuary . Memorial to Genius is a decent consideration, too.

If you're dead set on the Serpent, I'd also add in 4x Witching Well , though I think Gargoyle is a better wincon. Depending on which route you go, I'd also consider Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , or Into the Story . Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip is an all-star, too.

You might consider adding in Ipnu Rivulet or other colorless producing lands in order to play Spatial Contortion or Warping Wail , as well; if not, Walking Ballista is decent removal in Pioneer.

Oh my where to start! I guess with my newest one! :D

Go Broko with Oko

I am still needing to fix up the mana base, and look into moving a few small cards around, but the basic premise of the deck is to use Polymorph spells to turn keystone pieces on the battlefield into small creatures, then use Spatial Contortion to kill them. We can also use Oko, Thief of Crowns +1 to turn them into 3/3 Elks, which once contorted they will become 6/-3 and rightly die.

I think it's actually quite a clever deck and will be saving up to buy it in the future :)

Points of Interest:

  • Oko isn't in the decklist because he doesn't have a preview yet for the site
  • First rough draft; Suggestions welcome
  • Lands are all basic as I figure out curve / change cards. Lands will be changed last in order to hone in on what I need
  • I realize no lands produce for Spatial Contortion . It's a work in progress
  • This is a theme deck. Clone / Polymorph / Kill. Consider it Simic's version of "Midrange"

Incorporating more interaction on the lower end of your curve would be a nifty idea. You have ramp and pay off but to get to the pay off you're gunna need to be able to stop some of the little critter decks. Warping Wail and Spatial Contortion are decent options. Also, don't underestimate Thought-Knot Seer he's been a real power house in my meta full of najeela and doomsday players.

Colorless is not a color. Since neither Shatterstorm , nor Scion of Ugin contain colors that Feather, the Redeemed does not they are both legal in a Feather deck.

As an aside, since it may come up at some point. Neither Shatterstorm nor Scion of Ugin require any colorless mana. Starting with Battle for Zendikar they have differentiated between colorless and generic. Both of the mentioned cards have generic mana in their mana cost. Colorless is denoted by the symbol as on Spatial Contortion and Kozilek, the Great Distortion

I've been running

Mono Blue Control - Annihilation -

Modern* APPLE01DOJ


for several years.

I've made tons of other mono blue lists but always come back to this one. Pteramander is also decent in mono blue.

As far as the removal issue, it's typically not too much of an issue. If you're dead set on killing something. Reality Shift , Psionic Blast , Dismember and Spatial Contortion are your options.
