Hi juanchite86,

This seems like a reasonably solid brew, if I had to criticise anything it is perhaps overstocked with 1 drops. One of the first cards I'd be tempted to add is Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, in a mono colour deck it just makes sense, I'd also suggest Primalcrux, Chroma was basically a prototype for the Devotion mechanic in Theros block and maybe Reverent Hunter. More significantly you need extra card draw / advantage, for green this tends to be tied to creatures. Cards like Elvish Visionary, Wistful Selkie, Courser of Kruphix and Eternal Witness could give you a little more gas. My last suggestion to you is a Planeswalker, Garruk Wildspeaker or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar would be the first ones that come to mind.

Wistful Selkie,Voidmage Prodigy, Spellstutter Sprite, Nightveil Specter and Exotic Orchard really don't have a place in the deck. They take up valuable slots you could have for things such as cantrips or draws.

Ok, edited the deck to cut a Boros Charm and a Wistful Selkie to include Path to Exile because I can expect trouble when facing large creatures like Death's Shadow and Tarmogoyf when approaching full strength. Still I want to keep noncreatures to a minimum because of the manabase and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. I was also concerned about Path to Exile becoming the only possible miss in the deck off of Bloodbraid Elf and so briefly considered Selesnya Charm instead, but no.

Also modified the sideboard a lot. Cut the Stonecloakers and Void Grafters for Scavenging Ooze and a couple extras to adjust for certain matchups.

Great job with this deck. Even though it's $13, at least one Collected Company could do very well. Also, Elvish Visionary could replace at least one Wistful Selkie. Dwynen's Elite can help create more elves, and probably Elvish Archdruid because it will make all your elves more resilient and can add tons of mana to ramp into bigger creatures. Definitely will upvote, great job.

I'd want more card advantage in this deck. Why only one Spell Pierce? Wistful Selkie seems like a good fit in this deck too.

I got a couple suggestions. If you want to stay mono blue then consider: 4x Thought Scour,4xs Hedron Crab, 4x Fraying Sanity, and 4x Shelldock Isle and Ipnu Rivulet and Sphinx's Tutelage are maybes.

unless summary dismissal is a meta choice than you can try Countermand.

As denijsx90 recommended before Archive Trap is worth the cost of the card, but cheaper options like Startled Awake  Flip can speed up the deck too.

2nd suggestion is adding black - which allows Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Pilfered Plans, Psychic Strike, and Induce Paranoia which adds more efficient milling spells and some control and card draw.

The key to winning mill is the same as burn - SPEED, but unlike burn you have to do it 3x faster since libraries are 60 cards instead of 20 life. I play a "mono blue" with the win cons of Archive Trap+Sanity Grinding, but my deck takes advantage of using the Shadowmore/Eventide Avatars Overbeing of Myth, Godhead of Awe, Dominus of Fealty and lots of UU/UUU spells (Counterspell, Cryptic Command, Wistful Selkie, Plumeveil. Usually when I hit on turn 3 it is for 20 - 26 cards and can finish up by turn 4 or 5.

Maybe drop the Sphinx of the Final Word, Doorkeeper + defender package, and most of your spells. I like the Manic Scribe + Archaeomancer + Displace as a causal combo in multiplayer, but its too slow for Modern.

Isn't Garruk Wildspeaker missing? Untaps lands like a baws, and if you don't draw much other than small creatures, he's good for an Overrun every now and then.

Wistful Selkie is a decent enabler for this type of deck - carddraw and 3 devotion, that's not bad.
