I recently saw a deck that used Erayo and played a ton of 0 drop artifacts that required charge counters. Then they used Coretapper to manipulate the number of counters after emptying their hand with Chalice of the Void and Astral Cornucopia, etc. I know that's not the direction your deck is going, but I thought the construction of similar decks may be helpful! Maybe Sigil of Distinction could be good for other 0 drop creatures.

Thank you both for the advice so far. I think that I will take your advice about changing the number of rule of law and ethersworns. I will also check out those charge counter decks to see how they utilized Erayo since it is an essential part of my deck.

Sweet deck, man. Have you considered putting a 1-of Academy Ruins in the manabase? Some midrange decks in modern (Jund, Abzan) tend to have a really hard time against it.

Thanks! I will consider your recommendation. I was not aware of that card but what do you recommend I take out of the manabase to add Academy Ruins to the deck's mainboard?

I'd probably cut a Darksteel Citadel. Both produce colorless mana anyways.

I took your advice and changed the manabase a bit. Of course I do not own a lot of the cards I need for the deck yet but I will have the core components soon and all the help I am getting should help me in buying only the essential amount of cards I need and not a bunch copies that are never going to see play. The introduction to new cards really helps in seeing not only what other people play in decks but how I can apply those cards to my own decks.

The combo seems fragile, especially after game one when your opponent knows what is happening, essentially it is hold up removal fro a combo piece, with that said the deck is still very interesting. I would consider using a number of counters over something like Cranial Plating which is not adding anything to the combo (once the lock is set up it should be easy to beat down with removal, alternatively you could just use something like Blue Sun's Zenith which would be funny), and for your purposes Remand would be perfect considering that for a spell to be countered it has to be cast so returning the spell to your opponent's hand is essentially a hard counter and gives you more time to combo off.
Also, you may want to consider investing in Celestial Colonnade as it can be a win-con in itself.

Thank you for the suggesting. I will see what other cards I can incorporate to add more synergy to my deck instead of just adding cards that people play in every deck that runs artifacts(i.e. Cranial Plating)
