Treasure Cruise Discussion

If Jace gets unbanned, then unban Cloudpost, Green Sun's Zenith, and Deathrite Shaman. That would be fair, and it would never happen. Jace is fair in a format (Legacy) where the aforementioned cards are legal and played.
Modern doesn't need a Brainstorm and the other potent abilities that JtMS brings. However, BBE I'm on the fence with, as the Expertise cycle has a similar effect and are seeing play in Modern. That's not to say that R&D does a great job at printing broken cards for Eternal formats, ahem Treasure Cruise, rather I think that they often miss Modern when considering cards to print.
In any case, JtMS is way too broken of a card to be allowed in Modern.

Hey dude, huge fan of the deck! Saw it on reddit, i really love the high tide package as well.
I would have to agree with Silber here, why not sub out Lotus Petal for Mox Diamond? I also think Wood Elves looks a bit weak here, maybe swap it out for Gamble. I understand it gives you a spot on the curve for Birthing Pod, but I'd rather have a Deceiver Exarch or Eternal Witness or recruiter 9.9/10 times. If you need ramp with GSZ, you have other options as well, even if they dont net you mana that turn.
I'm also not huge on Treasure Cruise. I mean its amazing, but does this really want to have to exile your gy and tap out for 3 cards? I like Dig Through Time a lot more (i see its included already), just because its an instant and gives you mana to interact on your opps' turns. Cruise is good, but in my experience, it can be challenging to fill up that graveyard enough. What do you think of Crop Rotation in here? boseiju seems really good with your big spells, and even cavern of souls could be decent. It might be nice to tutor up that protection.
Anyways, huge fan of the deck! I play rafiq in cedh, so its nice to see someone else with a tier 2 general trying to rep it out there. I really think we have the stuff it takes to compete, theres just not a lot of people who are still working on midrange decks like this in the format.

Well I'm a little heavy 105 cards and only 36 lands. Looks like I need to make some cuts- Nyx Weaver, Shepherd of Rot, Barter in Blood, Treasure Cruise look like solid cuts however I don't really need to be cutting creatures I would like my creature count to be in the 30-33 range to maximize the sisidi triggers. Also I have changed the format a bit the sideboard are cards that I have on hand and would be easy to add the maybe board are cards that I need to acquire. Let me know what you think.

Nicely done. You and I had similar takes on Shu Yun. You went with more protection from color spells, whereas I went with more trample and indestructible. I did include Treasure Cruise and also Faithless Looting. Flashback is a fun way to get more prowess triggers on Shu Yun.

Death's Shadow, Phyrexian Dreadnought, and Spinebiter are all too cheesy imo. I also think Sidisi works better as a commander than as one of the 99, you're not trying to win with zombies and she's too slow.
Also unless you send Mimeoplasm (I may abbreviate this to plasm) to the graveyard Worldspine Wurm is just a graveyard booster. For the same mana you could play Artisan of Kozilek or Void Winnower.
Your landbase is good, and your removal suite is really good to the point it could get some trimming. Cut Murderous Cut (there are better ways to use the grave) and maybe Victim of Night. Honestly your creature count could be low enough to drop Living Death but that's an end of deckbuilding choice. Probably cut Thoughtseize too, there are just better things to do.
I would also drop the three signets for Wood Elves, Sakura-tribe Elder, and Sol Ring.
Possible Additions would be Phyrexian Arena, Treasure Cruise, Bojuka Bog, and Nihil Spellbomb is basically an auto-include for black decks. Frantic Search and Thirst for Knowledge are good looting effects.
Library manipulation with Sylvan library, ponder, and preordain is pretty key too.
Here's the cuts:
Death's Shadow -> Ponder
Phyrexian Dreadnought -> Preordain
Spinebiter -> Void Winnower
Sidisi, Brood Tyrant -> Phyrexian Arena
Worldspine Wurm -> Artisan of Kozilek
Murderous Cut -> Frantic Search
Victim of Night -> Thirst for Knowledge
Thoughtseize -> Nihil Spellbomb
Living Death -> Treasure Cruise
Dimir Signet -> Wood Elves
Simic Signet -> Sakura-Tribe Elder
Golgari Signet -> Sol Ring
Swamp -> Bojuka Bog

I would recommend not running too many Delve cards, due to how easily they empty your grave, which your deck wants a big graveyard. Treasure Cruise is easily the best, as an amazingly cheap hand filler, and Murderous Cut is probably the "Doom Blade" for your deck. Maybe try 2-3 Cruise, 2 Cut, and 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang, if you want to fit him in.

So cards that i think are a little underpowered are: Aegis Angel, Jeskai Barricade, Astral Cornucopia, Jace Beleren, Vapor Snag all feel underwhelming to me. Also i think 8 boardwipes are a lot, 6 is probably as many as you would want.
Some cards that might be good to add in are: White Sun's Zenith, Spirit Bonds, Springjack Pasture, Scourglass, Mirror Mockery, Martial Coup, Moonsilver Spear, Invocation of Saint Traft or the actual Geist of Saint Traft works well too. Cyclonic Rift can end games on its own. Some good draw cards are Treasure Cruise, Well of Ideas, Concentrate, Stroke of Genius and Rush of Knowledge and Bident of Thassa. Here is also a good list of draw spells https://www.reddit.com/r/magicTCG/comments/2u5o6m/best_reusable_blue_card_draw_edh/. I would also probably replace one elspeth with Ajani, Caller of the Pride
