ZookNingel it transmutes for Skullsnatcher and Spellstutter Sprite as well as Diabolic Edict so its mainly for finding answers.

I will start out by saying that some of the suggestions made by the EDH player aren't great--no offense intended, of course, but some are just too slow for modern. Dropping any number of Spellstutter Sprite, Fatal Push, Remand, or Spell Snare is just a bad choice; the Sprite is a cornerstone of all Faerie decks (and even some competitive non-faerie tempo decks), Fatal Push is literally the best black removal spell right now, and Remand and Spell Snare are both staples in blue decks. I assume he suggested dropping those for hard counters that can hit higher-converted mana cost cards because they're good in EDH, but three mana counterspells are pretty much a no-go in modern because they're too slow and much of the time Mana Leak is a hard counter.

Also, I saw he mentioned adding Brainstorm in place of Ancestral Recall, both of which aren't legal in modern. Was this deck marked as casual before? Or did he misread Ancestral Vision?

Anyways, your deck is shaping up pretty nicely so far. I'd play the full set of Remand because it's so powerful, but that's personal preference. Your sideboard could use a lot of work. Here are some suggestions along with a general outline for your sb:

1-4 GY Hate: Nihil Spellbomb, Relic of Progenitus, Surgical Extraction

2-3 Counters for interactive matchups: Countersquall, Negate, Dispel, Spell Pierce, maybe an extra Spell Snare (it's very good when you're on the draw g2, good enough to warrant a sb slot though not essential)

1-2 Tron hate: Spreading Seas, Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin (you could also add a couple of those lands to the maindeck if you wanted)

1-3 Artifact hate: Ceremonious Rejection (also good against Tron), Steel Sabotage, Hurkyl's Recall (used to see a lot of play, but has fallen out of favor)

3-4 Discard: Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize (also good against Tron), Collective Brutality

More removal against aggro: Collective Brutality, Go for the Throat, Dismember

Collective Brutality has been bolded because it's honestly the best sideboard card in black, and is the primary source of life gain in black decks. it's amazing against burn and pretty good against most other decks.

Less land, and less AEtherling. Not because anything is wrong with AEtherling, but it's a 6 mana creature in a 22-land deck - it's going to take forever to play it. How about a couple of Spellstutter Sprites instead? You already have a few faeries, and some faerie lands, and you could use them for countering removal and discard.

TheAlexGnan tlhunter07 I'm liking this delver list more than anything else right now. It needs a sideboard and tuning, but at the moment it feels pretty strong. Surprisingly, I'm loving the manabase. It's extremely greedy, but so far has worked out really well in testing. Best of all the only cards I don't own are 2x Spell Snare and 4x Darkslick Shores. The sideboard might have Ancestral Vision to combat control, but that's gone way down in price recently, and also might be the wrong angle to approach that matchup from.

I don't know if Delver is really where I want to be. I love the card, but the deck is really vulnerable to Path to Exile. Perhaps some Dispel in the sideboard? To beat control I need to resolve a threat and then keep it alive. Easier said than done. And Delver of Secrets doesn't feel optimal in any matchup right now. Especially with tron playing Fatal Push and eldrazitron playing Walking Ballista.

But if nothing else, the pace of this deck is right where I want to be.

I wonder if faeries can be a thing. Bitterblossom and Spellstutter Sprite seem good right now.

Interesting idea. As a Faerie Tribal EDH player, may I suggest a few changes to really go all out on the Faerie theme?

I'd also recommend putting 3x Doom Blade in your sideboard, replacing the 3x Surgical Extraction with 3x Slaughter Pact, replacing the 3x Annul with 3x Stubborn Denial and the 3x Thoughtseize with 3x Notorious Throng.

Finding a way to get a couple of Faerie Impostor in there would be great too, as their requirement that you bounce a creature back to your hand is a great way to replay all those lovely ETB effects faeries like Vendillion Clique and Faerie Miscreant have. Maybe cut 1 Miscreant and 1 Scion?

Thanks for answering my questions, I used to play faeries a few years ago and am thinking of picking them back up, but holy smokes is snapcaster expensive. on the one hand, I am looking at 1000 for the deck which I cannot justify spending. On the other hand, i have a playset of Spellstutter Sprite staring at me (literally and figuratively).

Gattison just saw comment. Id like to suggest my Pauper Nine (based on how any deck in these colors should play these cards and also their general total dominance)
