Vapor Snag Discussion
14 hours ago
I'm liking what I see, though I don't understand Thought Scour. I'd personally use something with more burn value than fatal push, so I'd main board some combination of Kolaghan's Command, Blightning and Vapor Snag. 2 of each would perfectly replace the cards I quibbled over. Young Pyromancer would be a great route to go too.

Creatures: Waaaayyyy too many expensive creatures for modern. Glen Elendra Archmage? One, maybe, in the sideboard. Mainboard is only for faeries deck. Identity Thief Interesting card, but... again... costs 4 mana. And it's answered perfectly by Lightning Bolt. Jori En, Ruin Diver could actually be interesting in modern, but probably requires cheaper spells, to ensure that you trigger his ability every turn. With enough cheap burn (and cheap is Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, and the like) you could get a weird draw-burn with Sygg, River Cutthroat. Fogwalkers ETB-ability could be ok, but it's ruined by the creature dealing very little damage when attacking. Dominus of Fealty costs 5 mana, and you have no way of ramping or making the game go long enough for you to reliably play 5 lands - and then it does nothing until your next upkeep. Powerful ability, though.
Spells: Mindswipe x-cost spells have never really become popular outside ramp-decks. The occasional Bonfire of the Damned, maybe, but otherwise not. In this case, you don't really get a burn spell, and up to 5 mana, Mana Leak is a better counterspell. Also, if you want to go with a prowess-like strategy, counterspells are a bit of a no-go.Izzet Charm and Turn//Burn are a bit of the same - it seems like you want both a burn and utility/counter-spell, and ends up paying overprice for any of them. It's not quite a Lightning Bolt, or quite a Mana Leak, or quite anything else.
Some of the cards suggested by are a little on the pricey side for a deck with a "budget" tag, but a lot of suggestions are good: Young Pyromancer, Vapor Snag, Gut Shot and Remand are great and cheap cards for this deck-type (that is: decks that use creatures with abilities that relate to instants and sorceries), just to mention a few.

looks like fun. i would run some more field wipes like Mutilate or Crux of Fate. Vapor Snag is great for dealing with attacking threats. Take Inventory might work as well for card draw. i would also recommend running a few Endless Ranks of the Dead and Underground River as well for mana fixing.

I second Kiln Fiend, simply on of best creatures in this type of strat. I'd consider going into blue, you get some cantrips like Serum Visions and bounce spells for tempo swings like Vapor Snag which are very handy. Also lets you play Thing in the Ice Flip if you like. Bedlam Reveler seems like an all-star to refresh your hand as well if the game starts to go a little long for you.
