Wall of Omens Discussion
1 week ago
I have a few suggestions;
1) instead of Boros Guildgate, have you considered running Wind-Scarred Crag? It is strictly better than the Guildgate, and has good synergy with Lich's Mastery, and makes it not a useless topdeck in the late game. Speaking of lands, I also think that a third Field of Ruin is worth considering, since you are currently running sixteen basic lands.
2) it feels to me that, as a combo control deck, that you need more ways to reliably draw cards. I'm not sure how well the deck has been performing for you without it (aside from Lich's Mastery, obviously), but I feel like Wall of Omens would be a good inclusion over some of the more situational/clunky cards, like Renewed Faith, or maybe cut down on some of the removal (the Cut feels out of place to me, and there are better options, like Flame Slash for example). And maybe Prophetic Prism over Navigator's Compass since that also cantrips?
3) why do you not have a sideboard? Does your playgroup not play with them? I always have a sideboard built for my decks, just in case, and I recommend that you build one to, for this deck and whatever other decks you have, since it at least gives you practice on building them. And even if you don't want to build one in paper, you can always build one on the TappedOut page here and mess around with it before you actually put one together.
I hope that some of these suggestions helped, and +1 from me! The deck looks fun!

Phyrexian Arena and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for quite a bit cheaper draw engine option and nykthos can work as a decent ramp... ooh Wall of Omens can also work decently well as draw/early game survival.
The deck looks like it could be a fun take on the prison Phyrexian Unlife Solemnity combo deck and it's possible the deck could also see a bit more success with some added combo and control deck disruption (ie Inquisition of Kozilek) as the main body of the deck should handle creature strategies in modern pretty well in a disenchant free meta.

@Megalomania, I already have Baleful Strix and actually I really like Wall of Omens, but probably going to go cut Mulldrifter instead of Cloudblazer. As for the Salvager of Secrets ordeal, I plan on cutting Possessed Skaab for the Recruiter of the Guard, so i can tutor for Archaeomancer or Salvager of Secrets.

Agreed. Speed is not the only way to go. All that really matters is how consistently you can enforce your gameplan against the pod.
As for this deck, I would run Wall of Omens and Baleful Strix over Cloudchaser. They don’t gain you life but having blockers that happen to have ETB abilities early in the game is great against aggro decks. For that reason, i’d also recommend Mnemonic Wall over Salvager of Secrets and Posessed Skaab.

Instead of grabbing another Hallowed Fountain, I'd focus on acquiring your Flooded Strands. I know they're more expensive, but personally I think it's the most important 4 of in the deck. Blood Moon is a very scary and relevant card, and one reason to play U/W is that it plays better around that card than Esper or Jeskai.
Would also like to recommend putting back your 4th Path to Exile. Especially in your build since you run Wall of Omens. Secret tech a lot of people forget is that you can path your own creature when you don't have any opposing targets.
Last one, I promise lol. Have you considered running Mana Leak until you get your cryptics over Disallow? I think Disallow is better in standard, but there aren't as many activated/triggered abilities that you want to counter so much as just prevent them from getting to that point in the first place by denying them resources (ex. Storm). It can save you, but I think Mana Leak is just better at preventing your opponents from getting there in the first place. Nimble Obstructionist is also an option, but I don't think it really fits your deck or I would've recommended that instead.

If the sole reason you have Trinket Mage is to tutor for Altar, I would just replace it with Fabricate. It might not be a flicker-able card but at least it can tutor for Panharmonicon which is equally if not more important than the Altar. Or maybe just get some draw engines like Necropotence or Wall of Omens. I have these on my list and I think they’re great.
I would go Gonti over the Merchant since you get more value out of it compared to the Merchant. Resto Angel is also in my list so I agree.
