Combo1 Requires Solemnity
Cards in the "Other" category are mainly there to help other cards in the deck and possibly mitigate some negative effects from opponents. As an example, Crucible of worlds enhances aura fracture and also is a protection against land hate
I know I have a infinite mana combo in the deck, i Just haven't decided what mana sink to use

For the format of the deck put casual, since it's not modern legal, but, I assume, you want to use as much modern cards as possible.
Then, I also assume that you don't want to spend a lot, so I'll try to propose low cost cards.
You have 16 things that do things when your opponent discards something, but only 10 cards that force your opponent to discard and 8 of them are easily destroyable creatures that also cost a bit too much mana for what you want them to do.
Personally I don't like Vile Consumption. It works also on your creatures and does nothing if your opponent doesn't play creatures or has only big things (if I have a 5/5 I'd pay one life cause it will make you lose 5). Do you want something that lets you destroy some creatures? Use Fatal Push, Murderous Cut, Doom Blade, Lightning Bolt or stuff like that
Last thing: 25 lands are too much. Just reduce them and add some shock lands (Watery Grave, Blood Crypt, Steam Vents), or check lands (Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Sulfur Falls). And, if they work well, you could also cut Thaumatic Compass Flip

That deck is simply awesome, it can do so much and use my favourite colors. I made my own version of it, I'm highly inspired by yours, but there are some cards that I simply prefer and/or don't fit my budget.

First of all, sorry for the loooooooooooooooooong time without posting here, guys. I was really busy with college.
dbpunk Both pacts would be better as a finisher instead of the blue one, but I use Pact of Negation because it is a good counter. Being able to combo with Hive Mind is just an "extra". I use HV mostly to have 4 wheels in the stack. Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt and seems to be evil and fun. I'll try them, thanks!
goblinguiderevealpls I couldn't agree more with you. I'm starting to change this type of cards. Thanks!
TheRedGoat I'm thinking about replacing Kami of the Crescent Moon for Duskmantle Guildmage. I need to test a little bit more. I didn't want to make a competitive deck. I love how casual and fun a EDH game can be. However, every wednesday there is a small multplayer tournament in a store near home. I've been successful with this list so far and I do not intend to run it has an 1v1 deck.
niels_bom You are right! Thanks for the heads up!!

This is Bean.
- Counterbalance (price for this on here is wrong, it's like $5 on tcgplayer. In fact, a lot of these prices are wrong)
- Frozen AEther
- Mana Maze
- Leyline of Anticipation
- Animate Dead
- Dance of the Dead
- Copy Enchantment
- Aura of Silence
- Arcane Laboratory
- Tainted Remedy
- Oblivion Ring
- Banishing Light
- Sphere of Safety
- Spirit of the Labyrinth
- Aegis of the Gods
- Eidolon of Rhetoric
- Supreme Verdict
- Rhystic Study
- Mystic Remora (Combos with Solemnity, as does any cumulative upkeep cards)
- Phyrexian Etchings
- Mind Harness
- Enlightened Tutor
- Dance of Many
- Pendrell Flux
- Vile Consumption
- Mana Web
- Praetor's Grasp
- Oppressive Rays
- Aqueous Form
- Suppression Field
- Future Sight + Sensei's Divining Top + Etherium Sculptor or Helm of Awakening = draw you whole deck
- Stasis Snare
- Temporal Isolation
- Spirit Mantle
- Starfield of Nyx
- Phyrexian Unlife (play this first) + Ad Nauseam = Draw your whole deck. Unlife says: you can't lose the game for having 0 or less life, and all damage to dealt to you when below 0 life is instead dealt in poison counters. Ad Naus doesn't deal damage to you, it's loss of life and so you can pay as much life as you want, draw your deck, and not gain any counters. Works fantastically with all the Propaganda/Sphere of Safety effects, if you run them. Worst case scenario, just put Solemnity out and you can't gain poison counters :D
More expensive options, or later upgrades to the deck:
- Show and Tell + Omniscience (can allow you to potentially cast any number of game ending combos, i.e. Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac + draw)
- Serra's Sanctum
- Dark Depths (combos with Solemnity)
- Idyllic Tutor
- Runed Halo
- Greater Auramancy
- Bitterblossom + Contamination
- Leyline of the Void, can also combo with: Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension, infinite combo while it exiles opponents libraries since Leyline of the Void is out.
- Leyline of Sanctity

Ok so have you considered the other 2 pacts in B and R to work withHive Mind? Slaughter Pact won't target most of your creatures, and your opponents can't counter each other pacts so it becomes a "kill each creature and all non-black players lose" situation with hive mind. As for Pact of the Titan nobodies going to really gonna be able to do anything with said 4/4 giant token if they don't play red in their deck.
Also, two really low cost enchantment to run with this type of deck is Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt. Vile Consumption becomes an immediate clock against any deck with tokens or high number of creatures, and Breathstealer's Crypt essentially lets you know what's going in people hands and gets rid of creatures. Not to mention they draw the card still before being forced to pay 3 life and discarding. And I don't think anyone wants to pay life when facing a Nekusar build.
