Hope of Ghirapur is already in the deck.

Slither Blade is an easy swap. I like that it's a rogue, but I don't like that it's blue. I'll probably swap out Surveilling Sprite for it.

Memnite is fantastic and is not coming out. The ability to drop it first turn with a 1-drop dork for a turn 2 Edric AND a draw is too good to pass up. The only other way to get that is using a 0 mana accelerant, which are much more inconsistent.

Has anyone considered that I don't have Capture of Jingzhou simply because a) I'm out of room, and b) the HD package is just better? It's not necessary to chain turns together if on one of those turns you straight up win. Right now I can swap Temporal Mastery for Capture if people really think it's necessary, but I already don't have enough room for Deep Analysis, so right now the HD combo needs Edric and the combat step for the winning LabMan draw. Personally I'd put Deep Analysis back in before Capture. If anyone can think of some good swaps let me know, but until then I'm not going to put in another 5 mana spell that doesn't contribute to my plan A.

Also, Carpet of Flowers is in the sideboard and is going to stay in the sideboard. It's pretty much an obvious swap for a Llanowar Elves/Elvish Mystic/Fyndhorn Elves/What-have-you, and I don't like putting meta dependent cards in the mainboard if I don't have to.

i figured most the suggestions wouldnt be any good but i was bored, but this time i think i actualy have a few good ones, to start off with, Jace's Phantasm at worst it's a 1/1 flyer for 1 blue, next, Deprive is a definite add in this deck, i'd suggest replacing Hydroblast with it, also Delay is a good addition and Annul is really good, i would say use Remand over Unsubstantiate but you already have enough draw, and Unsubstantiate doubles as a Boomerang, Chain of Vapor could be very good over Disperse especially in a multi player game because often ppl will not target you back with it becuase you have mostly 1 drops, they will target someone else and it ends up being basically a 2 for 1, Gemstone Caverns for some good early game ramp, Cavern of Souls if you can afford it, it add protection 4 your commander and hits about 7-8 creatures if u call elves and about 5 if you call rogues, Merfolk Spy, Jhessian Infiltrator, Surveilling Sprite, and Faerie Impostor increase the rogue count all though i doubt any of your creatures will get countered, your better off adding to your faerie count with Zephyr Sprite, Surveilling Sprite, Faerie Impostor, Mothdust Changeling , Scryb Sprites and Cloud Sprite for Spellstutter Sprite, Signal Pest is good, has evasion and is kinda like an anthem,Notorious Throng is real good if you get your rogue count up, take an extra turn and get some 1/1 flying faeries, heck yeah, also almost forgot, Spellskite is pretty good its cheap adds a decent blocker plus additional protection for edric and it can shut down/slow down many deck types and commanders, slows down tron builds, meren builds and flicker builds,

Many cards seem more cute than useful. I'm also refining an Edric deck, so please tell me if you had a reason for including these.

Spell to cut:


Also have you tried these/are they good/bad?

Lands to cut:

I guess you were low on options due to Hermit Druid.

I would up your land count. You need to be able to leave mana open while beating down with manlands. Adding four Faerie Conclave will go a long way.

I'm not sure I'm sold on your non-creature spells. U/B has a lot of good removal in Modern. You already have Mana Leak, but the rest of the spells are really inefficient. I'd suggest 1 Dispel, 2 Spell Snare, 1+ Dismember, and 1+ Victim of Night/Go for the Throat. Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Countersquall, Smother, and Vapor Snag.

Your creatures look good. Faerie Miscreants just need to go in instead of Zephyr Sprite or Surveilling Sprite. Lastly, I'd cut Wydwen, the Biting Gale completely for Mistbind Cliques. Realistically, you can't play Wydwen, the Biting Gale until turn 6 because otherwise it will stumble into Lightning Bolt.

If there's any one card I'd bite the bullet on and buy regardless of what other changes you make to the deck, it'd be 4 Mistbind Cliques.

adanlaj i like the idea of more hand disruption, really messes the game up for the opponent.

As far as draw cards, those are great suggestions, what about Surveilling Sprite?

Yeah I guess the bounce doesn't work quite that well as it is white/blue rather than black/blue. Even though cards like Spellstutter Sprite works fantastic with the bounce since you get a counter spell for a one drop, if you have the exile cards in your hand.

I'll mess with the deck a bit and see how it looks.

L1NX, thank you for getting interested in my deck!

The deck already runs lots of card draw (Faerie Miscreant, Preordain, Foresee, Latchkey Faerie, Distant Melody, Surveilling Sprite), although you can test those cards and see if they suit you better.

In my opinion, I prefer cards that give me scry and draw because I can plan better the following turns.

If you test the deck by your own, I'd appreciate that you give me feedback about it. I also want to improve and complete the sideboard! :)
