Hmm, there's not many unearth cards with an abusable difference between their CMC and unearth costs outside of Fatestitcher but that suggestion is a great one itself... wish I could actually use Unearth.

Bedlam Reveler works super well with that early discard package and maybe some burn

I'm liking the ideas of affinity and Unearth that card is a beast.

I've never really played off an affinity theme, what are the building blocks? Are those 0-drops the key?

I've been thinking about creating a modern deck for ages but nothing has really jumped out at me as attractive until a couple of quite recent discoveries - the not very wallet friendly "End Foretold" and some cheeky use of Elder Deep-Fiend for fun and profit.

Since the EDF approach is a bit more realistic for me right now I wanted to gather some help pursuing a direction, I'm not planning on taking the deck to the pro tour or anything but I do want it to kick a bit of butt.

I can't totally decide if I should go Temur (seems like value town), Grixis (for awesome black removal) or even just stay in UR but I know I want to use a starting point of:

4x Elder Deep-Fiend, 4x Kozilek's Return, 4x Champion of Wits

I've considered several angles including using Glorybringer which I like for milking some value out of before emerge-saccing it; adding numerous sweepers like Sweltering Suns; Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam; a discard package to control the early game and make sure the evil octopus gets to come to the party; Glyph Keeper; Cathartic Reunion and/or Burning Inquiry. I'm not fond of the Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl route like a popular SaffronOlive build, I want a different direction.

Not so bothered about covering the mana base just now, I can get to that later unless anyone has any amazing or 'out there' suggestions to discuss.

Thanks in advance, I'm excited to see if some ideas get rolling.

I'd like to see more Emerge, there were too few of these in SOI and its got lovely flavour.

Very much agree with you on numbers 5-10, an overloaded Duress would rock!
