Unsubstantiate Discussion

You make me blush Snap157. I like to think I have been touched by the Firemind. (Not inappropriately)

Wow, that's a lot of cards. I don't want to go into detail because first you need to decide exactly which route you want to go. If you want to go straight counter/burn you are gonna want to cut down the creatures to about 12-16 to make room for counterspells, burn, and draw. Delver of Secrets  Flip and Monastery Swiftspear are great one drops in those decks. 2 drops can be Stormchaser Mage for a little quicker deck or something like Thermo-Alchemist. Enigma Drake or Spellheart Chimera are great payoff cards. A couple Bedlam Reveler or Cryptic Serpent are nice to have as well.

If you want to go the Fevered Visions route the creature base is a little smaller and most of the counters are replaced by bounce spells like Unsubstantiate and Unsummon to keep your opponents hand full.

Once you decide exactly what you want it to do I can help more. Also keep in mind that I do not play Modern or competitively. I just play casual but you can look at my decks to get some ideas if you want.

This deck seems like what you are looking for, Izzmatic. It can be made Modern legal by replacing a few cards. My Fevered Visions deck is more for fun and casual play but you can check it out if you like, Visions - Young Peezy ft. Alchemist.

It is also helpful to know whether you intend to play competitive Modern events or just play with friends. Or perhaps just want a cool deck to take to FNM.

Draw well, and Glory to the Firemind!

Weaver of Lightning is a side board card. Bring it in against weenies. If it were my deck, I'd drop the Thermo-Alchemist, add 1 more Enigma Drake, and 2 Bedlam Reveler. If you add Fevered Visions (which I am a big fan of) change your blue counter spells to something like Unsubstantiate. Putting cards back into the opponent's hand will help the 2 damage from Fevered Visions be more consistent.Take a look at mine if you are interested

Unsubstantiate over Boomerang as it sort of act as a Counterspell when needed. Also "counters" cards like Thrun, the Last Troll while they are on the stack.

@Drakender:

Murderous Compulsion is a good card, but I don't have near enough discard outlets at instant speed to include it. It also doesn't deal with the gods or Gideon as Thylian1 pointed out. Trespasser's Curse is to deal with Copycat combo, yes they can remove it but it usually gives me the extra couple turns needed to gain a firm control of the board. Fevered Visions was very seriously considered, but it's already bad in control shells because of how long the games go and I'll rarely get the upside with so much of the meta switching to Heckbent Strategies featuring Hazoret the Fervent. I'd sooner run Horribly Awry than Deny Existence but Essence Scatter is just such a cleaner answer even if it fails to exile the card. Unsubstantiate is decent, but I still think the current list is stronger. Grasp of Darkness is difficult to cast, but it still just does so much that I can't afford to cut it.

Would you consider playing Murderous Compulsion or Sinister Concoction vs Grasp of Darkness, both can be instants, but, Grasp of Darkness is less synergic and cost 2B, but I understand that gods... Consider also Bedlam Reveler, it sould be easy to cast with your actual version.. Not sure about trepasser's curse, I think you can already deal with creatures, maybe Fevered Visions or Cataclysmic Gearhulk instead for control matchups... For Essence Scatter, you'll use it for big creatures, I suggest, you Grasp of Darkness go there or better would be Unsubstantiate or Deny Existence...

Curious Homunculus  Flip is what you are referring too. One of my favorite cards, but most people would rather run Baral, Chief of Compliance especially with counters.

Also to add to what others already said, I run Unsubstantiate in both my standard and casual Fevered Visions deck. Great card.

Badass deck! +1

The biggest issue I see with this deck is that it has a ton of cycling and discard, but not a lot of draw power, which could lead to some empty hands at bad times. I would consider slotting either Anticipate or Glimmer of Genius into the deck and dropping Catalog. Also, there are better options than Just the Wind, despite the Madness aspect. Unsubstantiate also hits spells as they cast, and Disperse can also hit artifacts and PWs. Other than that, love the idea! +1
