Target player puts the top two cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Draw a card.
Since you're running Jace's Phantasm , I'd cut the Fog Bank s for more card drawing capabilities. I'd replace Tome Scours with Thought Scour , and the Fog Banks with Visions of Beyond . Also I'd either go 4/4 or 3/3 with the Dusk-crank combo or cut it entirely. I'd also decrease the Nephalia Drownyard count to 2 and think about adding something like Shelldock Isle to help close out the game when you've milled them a bunch already.
As far as sideboard goes, you can check out mine. I recently played in GP Richmond with the current SB I have listed now, so maybe you can take some of those ideas. I do splash green as well but the other cards should help you out in a straight U/B build as well. Greatest Modern Milling Machine Ever Made!
You should change it to standard because your never going to survive long enough in modern. Suggestions/ideas: Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver for creature heavy, Thoughtseize or Duress , Wight of Precinct Six and Nighthowler as big nasties, Phenax, God of Deception as a way to use said nasties, Tome Scour and Traumatize as mill cards, Paranoid Delusions with Aqueous Form for perpetual mill, Realmwright and Crypt Ghast as a huge mana boost, Omenspeaker , Temple of Deceit , and Diabolic Tutor as card search. take out: Nullify and Dimir Charm as they do nothing particularly helpful, Thought Scour since it doesn't mill nearly enough, and Notion Thief out of the sideboard. For the sideboard I would add Mind Grind , a few Elixir of Immortality if you expect mirror matches and Doom Blade / Hero's Downfall / Murder .
What is Notion Thief for? Nothing is forcing draws, and what are the odds they'll SphinxRev with that out?
Also, if I may: take a look at the expansion symbol for Thought Scour .
twospires: how about this offer:
Temple of Mystery
Birds of Paradise
2x Mayor of Avabruck Flip at least 1 if foil
Instigator Gang Flip
Daybreak Ranger Flip
2x Thought Scour
let me know what your thoughts are....
I don't quite understand your suggestion of Spellskite ... I feel like you mean it for something I haven't realized.
I put in Isochron Scepter because it can copy the exiled card each turn. This will help greatly with almost all of my instants. For example, if I exile a Darkness , I take no combat damage until they kill the scepter. A Dimir Charm or Surgical Extraction can bring some pressure. Or Thought Scour , Peer Through Depths , Visions of Beyond or Remand to get a huge card advantage!
Though I see your point in that I have to tap for it each turn...
I know that the listed cards above are banned in modern. Are there any 1 drop cards that allow some sort of draw and/or scry amount for either 1, U, or B? So far I have found Peek , Lost in a Labyrinth , Serum Visions , Twisted Image , Thought Scour , and Visions of Beyond . Are there any others I may have missed or did not think of?
This is a really solid deck. I have a few suggestions mostly based on my playstyle, which you may or may not agree with.
-1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion for +1 Jace, Architect of Thought Elspeth is a win-con, while Jace is control and card draw. With cards like Think Twice and Thought Scour gone (Why? Wizards, Why take our cantrips?) You will probably need more card draw.
In the Sideboard -1 Archangel of Thune and -1 Assemble the Legion for +2 Stormbreath Dragon absolutely devastating in the mirror. The threat of monstrous is enough to draw removal away from your other threats, and the 4 hasty damage is a great follow-up to the other guy's wipe.
Again, these are just my opinions. Good Luck!
