Voidmage Husher Discussion

That's the best kind of brainstorming, for sure!
I'm not sure about Boomerang either ... it's very good with Shocklands, but I'm not sure the tempo hit on a normal land is big enough to justify it. Thanks tons for the other bounce options, but if I find it's too weak, I'll likely move to actual counters (e.g., a 2-2 split of Negate and Mana Leak ).
I'd looked at Cloudthresher , but I don't think the effect is worth the mana cost, especially since I expect to periodically have Nimble Obstructionist and maybe Vendilion Clique (currently in the maybeboard) in the air.
Thanks so much for all the inputs!
I'm not sure about adding Black (not that it's a bad idea, just that I don't currently have any of the manabase to support it, so it'd be a big outlay for essentially just an experiment). But Shadow of Doubt could be great for sure. Dream Eater is extremely interesting ... I'll give it a hard look.

Here's some drunken brainstorming:
The ability of Boomerang to bounce lands doesn't seem very useful in modern when everything so cheap. And it's not like you have anything that really works with bouncing lands. Spellstutter Sprite counters spells with a converted mana cost of 1, might be better than Boomerang . If you really want bounce, I'd say if you're planning to bounce your own things most of the time, consider Call to Heel , and if you plan on bouncing opponent's things consider Echoing Truth . If you can't decide, consider Repeal or Remand .
If you want some spicy tech, run a Redirect or two. In Modern, it can make an opponent Thoughtseize themselves or Lightning Bolt their own critters, steal Ancestral Vision s, and can even counter Cryptic Command s. There are a few decks it does nothing against, but it can often do more damage to the opponent than even Counterspell , when it two-for-one's them. It can also count as removal for you.
Voidmage Husher is repeatable counter to activated abilities, but is quite mana intensive. Maybe you could find room as a one-of?
People always forget blue and green have burn spells with Psionic Blast and Hornet Sting . It's not much, but it would be enough to catch some players by surprise. It's just a thought, since you said you wanted burn in the deck.

made more edits.
Been playtesting it abit with TappedOut's playtester, and I seem to be drawing a lot of cards, so i'm benching Guardian Project in the meantime.
I forgot about cheap removal Reclamation Sage ...

Thanks for the review WizardOfTheNorthernCoast! Looks good! I got some tips from the discussion on your deckpage. Unexpected Results is definitely on-theme but it could stop the Surge wincon. Seems like you put in more passive draw compared to my ETB/on-cast draw. I guess I could try that for another time. Would you ever get more than 7 cards and have to discard though?
I put the Conjurer's Closet and Minion Reflector because I have alot of ETB effects, so these help me to 'recycle' them. I think its fine to cast them on the mainphase or flash them in with Orrery/ Leyline/ Alchemist Refuge. The Reflector requires me to pay each time so i'll be cutting it out.
I'll be cutting Beast Whisperer first since GP works with the conjurer's closet. The Whisperer can be copied to give me insane draw though, so I need to test it out. And I almost forgot, the commander herself is a draw engine.
Primal Surge says 'may' so that incident with the Leviathan stopping the wincon wouldnt happen!
I actually opt to remove Mwonvuli Beast Tracker because it has only 5 targets now/
the Diluvian Primordial could work many things. Maybe I cast a wheel, or flash the Primordial in response to use an opponent's Counterspell. hahah

Voidmage Husher could be a potentially good addition to the deck :D

Funny thing Luarviq, Deadeye/Peregrine( Palinchron ) combo not as bad as you would think. There are many ways to actually deal with it. Provided you have the mana on the time as well. Like in response to ETB trigger you can remove Deadeye, or response to activating soulbond.
Some cards that do this are:
In regards to Defense of the Heart , there should really be no reason why that stays on the battlefield longer than one rotation with it being active. There are several great removals that are cheap and decent, ex. Nature's Claim , Krosan Grip , Naturalize , Deglamer , Unravel the Aether to name a few.
I am a fan of tutors, because they lead to deck consistency, it does goes against the spirit of EDH but I am a competitive player so I like to win.
Cards you can consider cutting:
- Cultivator's Caravan - There are better rocks than this one
- Altered Ego - If your running a clone effect there are better alternatives
- Champion of Rhonas - It meh at best, not as useful when your ramping a lot
- Savage Knuckleblade - There are better options you can run than this
- Wolfir Silverheart - For 5 CMC there are better beat face creatures
- Berserkers' Onslaught - Same as above 5 CMC is a big investment
- Shamanic Revelation - I would run something like Hunter's Insight over this one
