Surgical Extraction Discussion

Lantern is what I like to call a meta deck.. In that it'll always be relevant unless the meta is inundated with artifact hate. My particular LGS is Boros Burn heavy and Eldrazi (all variants) heavy, but I know this deck can handle its own at almost every establishment.. You just have to be able to deal with the salt from other players.
My sideboard choices:
2x Ghirapur AEther Grid - This is a common component in classic Lantern decks as an alt wincon
1x Grafdigger's Cage - For decks that rely upon reanimation or playing cards out of their graveyards
2x Pithing Needle - This is a mainboard card in just about every other Lantern deck, it's very useful for shutting down trouble cards like planeswalkers
2x Surgical Extraction - For trading in to kill off known combo decks
1x Thoughtseize - For trading in and out hand disruption cards
2x Welding Jar - For decks that have a lot of artifact hate
4x Whir of Invention - Trade this in to convert this deck to the Whir version of Lantern.. Trade out all of the extra blue cards in the mainboard for these four.

best cards in soul sisters are Serra Ascendant and Martyr of Sands, thats why its an "aggro" deck cuz it can play a 6/6 turn 1, you're missing both and only have the sisters, how do you plan on winning outside of pridemate?

Go for the Throat and Terminate are split like that because in my play group Surgical Extraction is played in 8/10 decks. because of that I don't want to lose all my kill, so I keep it split. I am running the Victim of Night Sideboard to bring in and replace the Go for the Throat when affinity comes up.
Will-o'-the-Wisp I do fully admit is a strange card, but I need some form of blocker early, cause I don't want to have to chump with the Bazaar Trader. If you have a recommendation for another 1 drop blocker with flying that is better I am happy to switch out.
Death's Shadow I did address in the description that it is a little bit of an off card in the deck. but I explained it there that "As you don't normally worry about your life total too much you are usually in a position to play Death's Shadow to slow down, or stop an opponents attacks on you. As well as if you pull off a donation with Abyssal Persecutor and your own life total is in the negatives you can get the full value of a 1 drop 13/13 to fight back with." So at this time I still stand by having them in.
Honestly really solid suggestions and I may do a little experimenting in the near future with adding some Lightning Bolt and more Mind Stone. But taking out the Death's Shadow and Will-o'-the-Wisp leaving me with only 8 creatures I would start suffering to more of the aggro decks.

Surgical Extraction is a good modern card by itself but it buffs your Cosi's Trickster too. Lord of Atlantis or other merfolk lords would be a good edition. Spreading Seas is good with Lord of Atlantis too.

Yeah, when I originally saw you running Reforge the Soul, I assumed it was just there to help replenish your hand while fitting your theme of using instants/sorceries, as for the Thought Scours figured you had em for their useful card draw and to disrupt things like opponents scrying and such.
Either way, I hope you get some use out of Surgical Extraction if you decide to try it out!

+1. I can dig it. I am not quite sure how I feel about you main boarding Startled Awake Flip though, seems a bit out-of-theme for this deck.. but if you sideboarded in some Surgical Extractions, then I could totally see it.

Lost Legacy is a good card, but has 3 problems:1) It's sorcery, not instant such as Extirpate or Surgical Extraction.2) Costs 3 mana (but this isnt a real drawback).3) Although it makes me exile what I don't need, it makes me draw cards. This means I can't use it on apostles cause i'll lose the match due to the fact i can't afford to draw 25 cards all in one turn. (consider 25 apostles + 3 lands (not fetching them, or you have to count them doubled) + 1 lost legacy + other 1/2 cards in hand + 1 card draw per upkeep in hand for a total of 33 cards, minimum, out of my library before drawing 25. It's a risk). Although it is very useful after you have removed all apostles with a Surgical Extraction or an Extirpate,the mana cost and the type (sorcery) make it a less desiderable card.
