DarkStarStorm Brewer

Howdy! My name's Paladin (or Pal). I'm a hipster when it comes to MtG. I'm stir-crazy if I do the same thing twice, which means that I'm a brewer at heart. My favorite formats (in order) are Modern, Pauper, and multiplayer Commander.

In that case, Opt, Chart a Course and/or Chemister's Insight solve your card draw problem. Opt is probably the best of the three if you're trying to avoid drought. You could, in fact, keep a one-lander if it had Opts in it. If you're familiar with Turbo Xerox theory in deckbuilding, it states that you can drastically reduce the amount of lands in the deck if you increase the cantrip count. Even just four Opts should help.

First of all, congratulations! Secondly, if you're running Goblin Electromancers, then you might want to increase the synergy with instants/sorceries. Crackling Drake and Enigma Drake are fantastic cards that are fairly cheap to boot. Niv-Mizzet, Parun is a crazy finisher, and for removal, Beacon Bolt can remove most anything. Lightning Strike is strictly better than Precision Bolt, so I would go up to four copies of that.

If you want to make it a bit more beginner friendly, then try to increase the amount of copies of every card. Reducing the amount of unique cards in the deck makes it so that she doesn't have to read every single card in her hand. It opens up more lines of play since she can understand what all of her cards do. Putting a few counters in the deck would also teach her to understand threat analysis.

  • Brave the Elements

This should probably be in the deck in place of Gods Willing. The upside of making your ENTIRE team unblockable is worth losing out on the scry.

  • Congregate

If you need a good lifegain spell to counteract burn, might I suggest Life Goes On? It doesn't force you to take a turn off like Congregate often does, and can often be better in a pinch.

  • Pacifism

Oust or Condemn are good budget options. Oftentimes creatures pose a threat without needing to attack or block.

  • Spirit of the Labyrinth

I'm not exactly sure what is in your meta that would merit having so many copies of this card in the sideboard. Care to share?

  • Valorous Stance

If boardwipes are costing you the game, then Hyena Umbra or Spider Umbra are great choices that could be in the mainboard.

itachi45 My intent was not to be rude. I'm sorry if my short replies gave that impression. I was not dismissing it because it wasn't a stock list. I have a Bant Blink deck I run in Modern to great success. I guess I get a bit tired of people misusing the tags. For example, this deck has neither counters or enough token generation to merit the tags. You yourself, rather rudely, said "NOT A SINGLE ONE OF YOUR CARDS HAS TO DO WITH A +1/+1 COUNTER."

A: this isn't very competitive.

B: You might want to give Hero of Iroas a spin in place of Herald.
