Seems pretty interesting. I was thinking of playing a more traditional UW Approach Control list, but I might actually give this a try, if the performance is as stellar as you claim.

JakeHarlow after further testing, it had a tough 1-2 vs a U/B control list and was one draw short of the second cast of Approach of the Second Sun. This deck is pretty bad sometimes game 1 against control depending on the opponents list but it makes up for it in game 2 and 3 most of the time. Game 1 against vehicles is normally really good, also against midrange lists. Obviously if you go against a swarm the board aggro list and you do not draw your Censors or other counterspells then you have a hard time. Drawing fumigate on curve is also pretty good. But game 2 you just side in your other Immolating Glares and you win from there. Been doing pretty well in testing, but my Esper Sun list also has some pretty good games... if you want to check that out. It is just a bit more expensive.

VraskaTheCursed Yeah I thought about that card for sure, I just do not know what to take out for it. I could take out the Glares but I just do not know, if you can name a card I would do it in a heartbeat though.

I like that deck a lot! Have you considered Dovin Baan or Angel of Sanctions? Also, and I know that this is already cliche, but think about Gideon of the Trials, as he will slow down your opponent with his +1

AiryNeon I thought about planes walkers in this deck but I don't think Dovin Baan would be the answer. If anything, running Jace would be. Gideon of the Trials is so expensive so I don't know if I would run it, but I can see it being played as a 2 of in the board for sure. Angel of Sanctions to be honest seems kind of bad, but thats just me. I could be undervaluing the card a lot more than I think. This deck is not supposed to have the best G1 vs. control... yeah it wins a lot with Approach of the Second Sun vs. control, but its match-up G1 is supposed to be better vs. Aggro/Midrange decks. But I do always love the suggestions and hope to get more.

Sick deck. I love your control style. You hit em hard, by turn 4 !!! . If i were you, i would go for the surge cost of the hentai crush. I would cut Engulf the Shore and i would put in Walking Ballista , IF budget isn't a problem OR Endless One if it is :) here is a +1 .You deserve it !
EDIT : turns out i already had upvoted xD

ROUROU I tested this idea and found that although yes, Walking Ballista is normally a better card, casting Endless One for 1 then bouncing with crush into a next turn 7/7 Endless One worked pretty well in my favor. So in saying. I am most likely going to throw in 2 to 3 copies of this card but I have to test further.

So has baral been worth it? It seems "fine" but do you want to be tapping out on 2 over holding up a counter or removal?
Not being able to really play cast out because of crush is a real bummer. In place of it, commit//memory I think should be in the main to help with Planeswalkers and other annoying permanents.
Some amount of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar should be in the board to help against midrange and some aggro decks.
I've been looking for a way to play crush of tentacles and as foretold. Pretty good start so far.
May 18, 2017 12:55 a.m.
kmach1ne I have found Baral super good. Being able to look for your win condition or a needed board clear has always been needed. Also having the 2 mana counter spell and sometimes a 1 mana counter spell has been really doing work. Also being able to crush for less mana is insane. Getting that token out wins games... period. So I think Baral is one of the better cards in the deck.
May 18, 2017 1:12 a.m.
For the other suggestions, Gideon is good yes. I just like the set up I have atm. And baral does come out it some matchups. Thing in the ice is always a good include when against aggro and Baral does fall off. So I'm excited to keep playing this deck. 2 4-0s and a 3-1 in my last 3 fnms. So I'll take the win. Been playing against new perspectives, red black drain, green black counters and zombies. Been working well. Also does well vs aetherworks marvel.

I'm not a super magic expert, but wouldn't casting crush put you back to square one on As Foretold do you find that that doesn't bother you much, i'm running a similar G/U deck UG Crush and I tried to stay away from Enchantments for that reason wondering if I erred in that.

That didn't link to my deck right http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/18-05-17-ug-crush/

My only suggestion is to put blessed alliance in the deck and immolating glare in the sideboard.

sorry if this has been mentioned, but i don't want to read all the comments.
crush of tentacles is not worth it without the surge cost. you have no way of activating the surge cost. all your spells cost too much or are counter spells (you won't play them on your turn -> crush of tentacles is a sorcery -> you can't use them to reliably activate the surge cost). to have 3 copies of a card in your deck that you can't reliably use to its full potential is silly and will cost you a lot of games.
also, running 4x port town and a westvale abbey decrease the value of engulf the shore, which is a crucial card in your deck vs every non-control matchup, since most of your removal is counter spells, which is single target. i don't disagree with running westvale abbey in and of itself, i think it's fine to have alternate win-conditions; it's just that if you willingly decrease the odds of having sufficient islands on the board for engulf the shore, you make yourself unnecessarily vulnerable to taking damage. personally i think Propaganda is underrated, and you could consider it as a healthy alternative to engulf the shore for stalling?
