This is a brief response. Modern is decently diverse right now

Right now the format has 4 decks that I prepare for.

  1. Izzet Phoenix - a spell slinger deck

  2. Dredge - Traditional not BridgeVine

  3. Tron - Green Urza Tron

  4. U/W Control/Miracles

Both Dredge and Phoenix, see below.

Basically, you NEED major graveyard hate. The U/W control deck is actually maindecking a Rest in Peace

And you should have a full playset in the board. Or use

Surgical Extraction

Tron, you want

Field of Ruin Ghost Quarter Spreading Seas Ceremonious Rejection

U/W Control - whatever you think you need to get past Jace and Terminus

dino_beast Hello, thanks for the advice. As far as Manamorphose goes the card is there simply to accelerate other cards in the deck by casting essentially a "free spell" which also grants card advantage. Testing this card in some cases reveals a back-to-back casting which can make for hilarious shenanigans if the right pieces are on the battlefield. It essentially speeds up activating Myth Realized , Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Pteramander with little to no cost/downside. I was considering replacing the card with counter-magic or mana fixing the opponent using Spreading Seas .

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, Saljen! I added Ghost Quarter to the deck. At first I didn't want to add it, because the deck really wants to be able to turn 2 Boomerang , but I still have enough Island to do this reliably, though I feel that a playset of Field of Ruin would cramp this. I'm also adding another Spreading Seas and 2 Sea's Claim over Narset. Narset was appealing because it granted card draw, and also sometimes just destroys decks like Phoenix and Storm if they can't deal with it, but now with Tron on the rise, Spreading Seas and Sea's Claim seem strong. All of the other suggestions I like and want to put in the deck, however, I am trying to keep it as budget as possible, and I think that they are more expensive then they are worth. I may make other price tier levels for the deck, though.

I'd honestly consider going for 4x Spreading Seas and 2x - 4x Sea's Claim . Maybe 2 main 2 side.

Land harassment is your goal, so by using these auras on their lands then only bouncing other lands; it leaves them with some lands on the board that only tap for colorless if they aren't using Blue. These come down early and can really shut down a lot of decks. It's basically Blood Moon in Blue, especially when paired with Boomerang and Eye of Nowhere .

I'd also consider a copy of Cyclonic Rift . You're going to have to deal with creatures that come out early, and you don't want to spend your land bouncers on creatures if you can help it. It's pricey, but even just one can be great. Rift can be cast early to get you out of a bind, or preferably late to clean up the board now that their lands are boned.

I'd also consider some non- Island lands. Since you're mono-blue you can easily run 8x utility lands and always have your colors. 4x Ghost Quarter would be a very solid place to start. More land harassment, great against decks that like to put auras on their lands for mana. This type of land destruction also lets you knock out their non-basics, and most Modern decks don't run a whole lot of basics so eventually they'll turn into just plain ol' land destruction. There's also Field of Ruin that doesn't put you behind a land, but can't kill their basics and costs mana. You could honestly just run 4x of each of these and run a copy of Crucible of Worlds to recycle them and be really oppressive. Another one to heavily consider, though it's going up in price, is Blast Zone . Really give you an answer to any creatures they manage to sneak by your land harassment. 4x Ghost Quarter + 4x Blast Zone + 1-2 Crucible of Worlds would just be insane in this deck. That'd probably be your perfect land setup, with the rest being Island s, but there are a lot of budget alternatives for the land destruction lands. This seems like a budget deck, so these may just be suggestions for upgrading your deck in the future.

As far as cards to cut, I'd say that Narset doesn't really do much for you here. She's great when paired with cards like Howling Mine , or as a sideboard card against decks that rely on a lot of draw like Faithless Looting . Opt is really the only other place to cut that I can see. Everything else looks pretty on point for what you're trying to do.

Really like what you've put together here, it seems like a ton of fun for the pilot and a nightmare for the opponent. Hope this comment helps!

Hi guys, ¿any ideas about a Mono U control deck viable for MODERN?. I have some nice cards but im a noob about modern meta, if there is something like that in modern actually.

Spreading Seas is a better Convincing Mirage , unless you want to screw up the manabase of other blue players.
