I prefer a green splash but the white splash is fine, personal preference. G or W splash is definitely stronger than Mono Colored. Black can't deal with Enchantments or Artifacts very well so a splash is pretty much needed to be competitive.

I think Collective is better in the side but if you like it in the main keep it in the main. What works for me may not work for you. I do think you should find some space for more bodies though.

As far as Kaya's Wrath is concerned. If you want to run it, consider adjusting your mana base. I'd add more Godless Shrine and some Fetid Heath . On the matches you need a wrath I doubt you're going to want to Fetch > Shock x2 to have it ready on turn 4.

Your sideboard is packed with valid choices but a couple cards you may want to consider are Liliana's Caress for Hollow One style decks that rely on Faithless Looting and Runed Halo for Arclight Phoenix decks.

Human Frailty can help you in the Human match up and not much else. Ethersworn Canonist can help you with Elves and a lot else.

I know I said it before but Bontu the Glorified is too perfect for this list. Personally I would cut 2 discard spells for 2 MB copies.

If this deck isn't focused on the Devotion Win then why play a Devotion deck? It's your best win con. I love midrange grindy matches but it's so much more efficient to fill the board with hard to remove creatures then land a Gary. (this is why Geralf's Messenger and Bloodghast are good, because they stick)

I would go 3x Seize 3x IoK and then fill those spaces with more creatures. I would also the MB Damnation and Collective Brutality (unless you add Bloodghast ) for more creatures. Put the Damnation on the SB.

What match ups are giving you trouble?

Considering that Fires isn't modern legal yes you should.

I forget the name but there is a 1 mana card that gives all your creatures haste.

In my experience with the deck the resident bodies like Geralf's Messenger and Bloodghast are just too important to cut.

I find the stay alive til 5 stratedgy far more effective than the control-midrange plan.

I'd go up to 4 on Gary.

Bloodghast and Geralf's Messenger are both good here.

I'd cut the discard down to about 6 spells.

That looks good to me

Why not run both?

I have G/W Aggro deck that utilizes both. It allows you to fetch the one you need for the current situation.

January 16, 2019 1:19 p.m.

How about Spellskite instead?

I'd cut 2x Sovereign's Bite and 2x Blackmail for 4 more lands. Preferably swamps.

Didn't read the whole thread so sorry if this doesn't fit but Noxious Revival can put a card from your grave to the top of the library and since you're in Faithless Looting colors this might be a better stratedgy.

#17

I'd cut Disdainful Stroke from the side for Nimble Obstructionist.

Cut 1x Island in the main for 1x Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

I think U/W operates just fine with 24 lands. You have enough sources of draw that the 25th land isn't needed.

I'd also cut 1x Detention Sphere for 1x Search for Azcanta  Flip. Deck manipulation is just too valuable.

Also if you're going to keep a creature on the side I think you should go with Nyxathid.

In that meta mainboard 3-4x Liliana's Caress.

Having a lot of experience with the deck I'd say you need both Bridge & Lilly. Raven's Crime and Funeral Charm should also be included in some number.

I like Vicious Rumors myself but not every one is a fan of the card.

Dark Depths isn't modern legal.
