OK, same advice as the azorius deck:

  • Play playsets. Really, really helps have a consistent deck. For example a chap dimir mill deck:

4 Sphinx's Tutelage, 4 Broken Ambitions, 4 Hedron Crab, 4 Thought Scour, 4 Jace's Erasure, 4 Ultimate Price, 4 Tribute to Hunger, 4 Agony Warp, 2 Visions of Beyond, 2 Mind Grind, 24 lands.

Simple and effective. The only cards above 2 bucks are hedron crab and visions of beyond, at around 3.5 bucks.

Jared1998 Thanks for commenting. I have taken out the two titans, a Tribute to Hunger and a Hero's Downfall to put on a playset of inquistion of kozileks. The Grave Pact has been dropped in favor of a Phyrexian Arena.

She's a little out of my price range, but I would if I could. Whenever my friend gets her out, it usually wins him the game if I can't get rid of it. As for Tribute to Hunger, I'll try it out. It would definitely be helpful in more aggro decks where I'd take some damage in the beginning

Shadow Alley Denizen instead of Vampire Lacerator? She is less aggressive true, but intimidate every time you play a creature can be lovely so long as your opponent isn't also mono-black. Also maybe Go for the Throat or Tribute to Hunger for more removal?

Still dislike Devour Flesh, but it's still fine. I personally would run a Tribute to Hunger as I said, or even a Liliana of the Veil would be good.

The deck itself is good, i just dont know how viable it is honestly...

Like for example, there are some cards in here that are basically trash compared to other cards in Modern. For example, why play Dissolve when you could have Mana Leak? Why play Syncopate for the same reason? Devour Flesh just is a bad card. Even some Tribute to Hunger would be better. And even lands, instead of painlands play fetches and in place of some Scry lands play a few Esper trilands. Even some Celestial Colonnades or Creeping Tar Pit.

The last thing I'd say, is planeswalkers and board wipes are very bad in Modern compared to standard. In Modern, you wont need 4 board wipes in your deck. Usaully once you wipe the board once you will be good. And walkers, are just meh in general. Elspeth is a lot of mana to pay (getting Remanded really hurts). She isnt a terrible win condition, but in the end, all the bolts your opponent was savin just kill her immeditaly. Jace is just bad in Modern honestly. You usaully get one -2 off of him, and then Lightning Bolt comes down. And the +1 is pretty bad honestly.

And the deck just straight up is lacking Snapcaster Mage. You need them. They're arguably a better win con than Elspeth and AEtherling.

If your deck has really been doing as terrible as you say it has, than try out this list and see how it does. But i just strongly think that one of the Modern Esper lists you built would be better, just make some tweaks based on the meta.

I hope my idea didnt seem harsh :P
