Hi guys, ¿any ideas about a Mono U control deck viable for MODERN?. I have some nice cards but im a noob about modern meta, if there is something like that in modern actually.

Here a list of some card i already have

Snapcaster Mage x 3 Jace, the Mind Sculptor x 2 Mana Leak x 4 Serum Visions x 2 Cryptic Command x4 Thing in the Ice  Flip x 4 Remand x 2 Baral, Chief of Compliance x 4 Spreading Seas x 4 Vedalken Shackles x 2

Please, im lost, i see a lot of mono u control/tempo decks, but they are from 2016,17,18, so maybe im trying force something useless.

The biggest issue is that you lack removal. You have plenty of resource denial. Narset, Parter of Veils could help make it work. You definitely need to run Vapor Snag and maybe play Callous Dismissal . You probably have to play Tempest Djinn and Delver of Secrets  Flip. I also like Elusive Spellfist . You MUST play Serum Visions and maybe Opt as digging through your deck is important.

Thanks man, dont know why the thread was duplicated. I can buy some cards, if there is any removal option. ¿ Engulf the Shore maybe? or Dismember .

The list of the cards is not a "WANNA PLAY THIS" list, so i can change some things and look for other options.

I wanna know how a viable mono U control deck looks like.

Above is a link to a decent variant of mono-blue control.

Try Swan Song on for size. If you are running Serum Visions , I would also recommend Temporal Mastery , which could help you get a huge lead early in the game if you scry right.

I legitimately just looked up random card on Scryfall and this came up, maybe it is viable?

Don't know how many Merfolk you plan on running, but... that thing could get really annoying. It just doesn't have hexproof or anything.

Just a thought.

It might not be right for you.

I've been running

Mono Blue Control - Annihilation -

Modern* APPLE01DOJ


for several years.

I've made tons of other mono blue lists but always come back to this one. Pteramander is also decent in mono blue.

As far as the removal issue, it's typically not too much of an issue. If you're dead set on killing something. Reality Shift , Psionic Blast , Dismember and Spatial Contortion are your options.

Is a nice deck, but doesnt play Snapcaster Mage or Jace, the Mind Sculptor , and i have those expensive cards. Feels bad not playing them

Just move Spreading Seas to the side or trim some of the 4 ofs to 3 ofs and slide Snappy in.

Jace however doesn't play so well in mono blue. You can run him and it will be beneficial but you won't get near the value that you would in a Terminus shell. Same scenario though, just cut 2 cards and add Jace.
