Watery Grave Discussion

Why Overgrown Tomb not Watery Grave When your primary second color is clearly blue?

GlistenerAgent on Druid's Control

Before I run some tests, your manabase could use some work. I could open Cockatrice and do it myself, but I'm a lzy-ass. I'd build the manabase something like:

4 Creeping Tar Pit, 3 Tectonic Edge

3 Island, 1 Forest, 1 Swamp

4 Misty Rainforest, 4 Polluted Delta

2 Watery Grave, 2 Breeding Pool, 1 Overgrown Tomb

I don't like Darkslick Shores in a control deck, and you were playing too many shocklands.

Golgari Keyrune has some use in one of my decks. I'm also assuming this is a paper (real) decklist since you don't have the shocklands (Overgrown Tomb, Watery Grave and Breeding Pool?

You inquired about my Watery Grave, but unfortunately I don't see anything I want from you.

You pretty much want to get rid of all of your cards from this deck with the exception of Scion of Oona, Bitterblossom, Polluted Delta and maybe an Oona, Queen of the Fae or 2.

Cards you want:

Cavern of Souls

Obvious.

Darkslick Shores

Most things you're casting don't cost over 3, it's a great tempo card.

Mutavault

Obvious

Secluded Glen]

Obvious

Sunken Ruins

Makes it a lot easier to cast Cryptic Command

Watery Grave

Can be fetched.

Vendilion Clique

A Thoughtseize on a stick almost, but you have flash as well!

Glen Elendra Archmage

Counters opponent's things and comes back for more.

Mistbind Clique

Can save your men, get rid of unwanted Bitterblossom, and is a Silence on a stick almost.

Sower of Temptation

Taking an opposing creature is great, especially when you have Scion of Oona to back your sower up.

Spellstutter Sprite

Counterspell on a stick.

Cryptic Command

One of the best cards in blue for modern.

Dismember

A great kill spell for creatures you haven't countered.

Mana Leak

2 mana counterspell.

Spell Snare

1 mana counterspell.

Thoughtseize & Inquisition of Kozilek

Hand disruption. Really good.

Liliana of the Veil

This card is too good, she wins games.

This is my favorite commander. Wub Wub Deck if you want to check mine out. I do not run combo, but more of a control build.

I think the first thing you need to work on is your land base. I am not a fan of comes in to play tapped lands, and the bounce lands are far too easy of a target for Strip Mine and the like. Which you should have in here, spot land removal is important.

Some lands I think you should look in to getting/trading for. Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Watery Grave - to finish off the shocks you need. Pains are really good. Adarkar Wastes, City of Brass, Underground River

What kind of stuff are you looking for? You are running time sieve. Why not run Thopter Foundry, Sword of the Meek, and Ashnod's Altar

Also when going combo, more tutors is very helpful. Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition, Demonic Collusion

I hope this helps, let me know what you think.

I would strongly suggest getting a playset of both Polluted Delta and Watery Grave. Those cards are at near all time lows in terms of price right now. This will also enable you to run a set of Daze, which is a strong permission spell in strategies utilizing tempo. I would also suggest finding room for a set of Ponder as well.
