Dissolve instead of Cancel?

Also Isochron Scepter could be fun here lol.

Thank you both for the suggestions I don't even know why I was running Cancel.

Also, Anticipate>Telling Time, also, cut down your card count to 60, you're 8 over

No problem man.

Good call on Devastation Tide

Over Whelming Wave

I have to half agree half disagree with the Anticipate

Yes, it's better.

BUT you have Delver and A miracle board sweep. So I think

Telling Time gains value.

How about Cyclonic Rift over Devastation Tide?

How has Deprive been working for you?

Because I can set up for Devastation Tide I prefer that and I love Deprive because you can still tap the bounced land for mana before playing it. Not only is it a good counter but even if you don't have it in hand you can tapped an untapped island as a bluff

I personally would run a few bounce cards to. Even if you don't counter it, bouncing is always a good way of going "I'm attacking""I'm blocking""haha no you're not."

If anything that just pisses off your opponent which in my opinion is like a secondary requirement of a mono-blue deck. LOL There's some good stuff in here, i learned of a few cards. SO thanks for sharing your deck. :D

No problem man and ya I'm still working out what I need to do.

I'd go down to 60 cards, getting rid of some of the softer counterspells. I suggest Dismember and possibly Serum Visions or Gitaxian Probe. Peek would be nice too.

Interesting deck, +1 since mono blue control is surprisingly very rogue for modern. I would include at least one copy of Logic Knot since you don't seem to be touching the graveyard. Also, you have a huge number of 1 and 2 drop counters, so 4 Deprives looks like overkill if you're trying to play big finishers like AEtherling. You might want to experiment with running Dissolve to help with improving late game draw. And if you're not on a budget, a full playset of Cryptic Command is an obvious choice for this deck.

Logic Knot is interesting. I like deprive because it is a hard counter that really doesn't slow the deck down but I will take note of Dissolve in the future depending on how the deck does. I'm going to wait on the commands until I can afford them but as soon as I can I will put them in. Thanks for the upvote.

Wanna be a true dick?

Telepathy

Flavor text adds insult to the injury.

Not even fun for the controller

I would like to see Propaganda Printed in a real set.

It would never last in modern though

Drop the delvers... add more counter magic. Drop the Leviathan and add Prognostic Sphinx. It is worlds better. Good luck.

IzzetFanatic

While I disagree on Prognostic Sphinx,

Dropping Delver is not a terrible idea.

If you're running it, 4 is kind of mandatory

September 22, 2015 7:47 p.m.

I'd rather run

Tamiyo or Middle Jace than sphinx

IMHO

I might try tamiyo but if anyone has good suggestions for creature control I'd love to hear it
