Classic control deck looking to cast Spinx's Revelation and other control cards to turn the game in your favor. Any feedback, questions and suggestions appreciated.

I would probably think about cutting the Batterskull for Wurmcoil Engine since you cant run Stoneforge Mystic.

+1, Nice Build!

I love seeing Gideon of the Trials in a modern deck, and Shadow of Doubt! Why are you running Westvale Abbey without any mainboard Token producers though?

I've started playing it when Elspeth was still in the main and actually got to flip it one time during testing. That is sort of the cute part about the card. What makes it great is actually it giving you a chumpblocker every turn if needed. Sure it is expensive and costs you life, but you should have the time and mana and it may buy you enough time and draw steps to find an answer for the board position. It is also good in control MU where you don't have to worry as much about their Snapcaster Mages.

My initial idea was that Kjeldoran Outpost was a must have in pure draw-go back in the day and Forcefield is an incredibly powerful Magic card. For now it has done what it is supposed to do and been great.

Good build, +1 from me!

I see you don't run any Spell Snare, why is that? Seems well positioned

Spell Snare is an awesome card and I usually can make it work but for the moment I feel like it is not that well positioned in the meta. That can and probably will change since Modern is an ever evolving format. If so I'd probably trim down on Dispels in the SB since those spells do more than double duty in the control MU.
