Cool idea! It seems pretty nice right now - here are a couple more things that might be worth thinking about.

In terms of your creature/spell ratio, I'd say that this deck's goal seems to better belong in a control deck, so it might be worthwhile to consider cutting some of your cheaper creatures (ex. Matter Reshaper and maybe even Baral, Chief of Compliance) in favor of some more burn/counter/draw spells. (I see that you have Abrade and Disallow in your maybeboard - those would probably be some of the best cards to add. Also Supreme Will, Tragic Lesson and Anticipate are my personal favorites in terms of card draw. Maybe add Sweltering Suns as well, if you have room.)

I'm also not a huge fan of Scour from Existence or Warping Wail in this deck - they just feel really underpowered. Might be worth cutting for some of the aforementioned cards.

On the opposite end, I would consider running a full playset of Oblivion Sowers, as they seem to be kind of the deck's centerpiece.

Besides that, I really do think that this is a neat concept. One wild idea might be Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, as his +1 and +2 would play nicely with Oblivion Sower, although it's yet another color and off curve. Just a random thought.

Again, most of this is assuming that you want your deck to go in a more control-ish direction. If you had more of an aggro-ish build in mind, then this probably isn't great advice. :P

Neat build! +1

A little late to reply to Suhbruh and MrGameAndScotch, but Warping Wail is still standard legal and would work to counter Hour of Devastation.

Have you thought of Warping Wail in this? It exiles a lot of annoying creatures and protects you a bit from combo decks.

@abby315 I totally forgot about Pithing Needle! I definitely need to put some of those in my sideboard! I also like the Dismember idea, but I think I'll put them in the SB rather than the main. Warping Wail deals pretty efficiently with both Mom and Strix, but I'll definitely board in some Dismembers for the more grindier matchups.

Thanks so much for the comment and the upvote!

Have you considered Warping Wail in the deck? It's a bit specific but stopping a board wipe can be nice as can an emergency chump blocker. Colorless has so few instants as it stands that it seems worth a shot imo.

You have no target removal, Titan's Presence, Scour from Existence. Also, a Warping Wail might be useful.

I really like the list, two things stuck out to me, especially post marvel ban (expect more zombies).

This big one is, have you tried Warping Wail either maindeck or sideboard? Since cat combo left, sorceries got more powerful, so the counter is good, as is an instant blocker or playing ramp on opponent endstep. Also, the exile is a house vs zombies, exiling a recursive 2/1 or especially a Cryptbreaker is a big deal.

Second, have you done Metallic Mimic in the Walking Ballista slot? Mimic isn't busted, but it's good in tribal decks, and another way to protect your TKS by making it 5/5 is big game. Walking Ballista is a great card and ruins can add an extra counter, but I still think it could be hard to make it a relevant size. Let me know your thoughts!

You need to have at least one card that has in it's mana cost such as Warping Wail
