Thought-Knot Seer Discussion

Yep looking good, though personally I'd be tempted to drop a single copy of both Titan's Presence and Warping Wail in order to max out on Endless One and the amazing Thought-Knot Seer. Being able to peek at an opponent's hand is amazing whatever you're facing. Plus creatures will always be useful (especially in casual, where your unlikely to face top-tier combo or control strategies), while in a grindy game the other two can end up being dead draws in the mid to late game. But play whatever works for you: I certainly wouldn't enjoy trying to deal with all these threats!

I could see something like World Breaker being a decant pay off card. It's not insanely expensive either. Possibly some other ones I can think of are Sundering Titan, Oblivion Stone, Thought-Knot Seer, Endbringer.

Flicker effects are generally really strong in Eldrazi and Taxes. You could maybe try to fit him into BW Eldrazi as blinking him with Flickerwisp, and Eldrazi Displacer could yield some good results. Thought-Knot Seer, and Tidehollow Sculler would also give you ways to pick at your opponent's hand to get rid of things that could kill Gonti.
Other option might be to play green for some ramp, like Birds of Paradise. The ramp might make the tempo loss of having Gonti bolt'd a little less painful.
As per your question about Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, I like her. But only in decks that have on demand sacrifice abilities (i.e. Viscera Seer). Otherwise she just eats removal before she can flip. With sacrifice effects, she pretty much gets to flip no matter what.

Meteor Golem seems great, definitely gonna try that one! Godo, Bandit Warlord seems like he'd be awesome here with your equipment suite. I'm also partial to Thought-Knot Seer as a great disruptive, semi-political card if you're into that. Sweet deck!

Agree with the above, perhaps consider swapping out Urborg/Swamps for some of the pain lands such as Llanowar Wastes which will give you the black without sacrificing your ability to produce colourless. Warping Wail is a strong card in my own Eldrazi Tron deck, but then I have no other ways apart from that and Thought-Knot Seer to interact with certain combo decks. I'm also surprised by full playsets of both Conduits and Mimics: what's the plan there? Your only tutorable options are the Ulamogs, which you don't need the mana discount for if you're hoping to have assembled Tron by then. If they're only there to search for him, why not utilise the fact that you're running black to swap a couple of them out for a more versatile tutor card that could find removal/a Tron piece/an alternate creature if Ulamog's already in hand or on the field? The Mimics are cute but less viable with the banning of Eye of Ugin, especially as the biggest they can become without Ulamog is a 5/5 with no additional abilities. Not bad I guess but if you're looking for black with the maps rather than Tron that means they'll be waiting some time to be anything other than a 2/1, which is not a resilient size in Modern. The amount of removal in the deck already means you don't need Walking Ballista/Basilisk Collar, but have you tried out Matter Reshaper? Pretty good card advantage and can still be a turn 2 play with a Temple. Still, I'm interested to hear how the tourney went, it's a cool deck that does something different.

Dropping Lead for anything is a really bad idea. I'm testing now playing even 4 Leads and card advantage it generates is amazing. Sometimes it's easier to build up after mass removal with Lead than Company. 3 are the absolute minimum, and to prove that you can look up decklists that acquire top eights recently. Dismember is a really bad card in elves, every list just plays 2-3 Abrupt Decay. Dismember is super weak against burn, and if you want it for the Shadow matchup, decay is better because it can't be countered by Stubborn Denial. Versus creature decks, you either don't need removal or you don't want to lose life. Decay also hits various enchantments. The only one weakness of Decay is that it can't target Celestial Colonnade nor Inkmoth Nexus. If you are not meme player You should consider trying 4th Lead instead of Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Inquisition of Kozilek is just bad, you either want to remove only noncratures (Duress for mass removal), or anything (Thoughtseize for Thought-Knot Seer, Primeval Titan etc). If you don't enjoy playng Stain the Mind, there is a trend to play 2x (Thoughtseize and 1 Duress. I'm testing the Stains and they are doing pretty well for me. There is also no need to drop 4th Nettle Sentinel, this are not GW combo elves, you need critical mass, and every elf more makes you Lead the Stampede better. Some people try to play 4x Elves of Deep Shadow, so you can try it buy yourself. The one thing I have learned for playing elves that, there is no room for playing joke cards in main. You just can't be free in your deckbuilding because of the restriction of how Lead and Company works. I hope, I have helped you in some way. Keep Elfing :)

It would help others if you shared your decklist, let me do that for you.

There is really no reason for you to be in black. It doesn't contribute to your overall taxes gameplan. The only potential splash you should be in with this type of deck is pure colorless for things like Thought-Knot Seer. Either way you probably should be running more white sources.
As others have pointed out, you really need all four Aether Vials. You probably don't need all four Cavern of Souls--there's not a ton of countermagic in Modern.
