In a agro deck it is better to have more creatures, for that reason 4 Goblin Wardriver are a better option than Trumpet Blast, they are also cheaper to cast.

More of a sideboard card as whitchstalker won't do anything against the non black or blue decks.

I forgot one Voyager Staff, this is to protect your Laboratory Maniac before you combo off.

Some card suggestions...

  1. Spellbook Another option to increase your hand size.
  2. Hedron Crab A must for mill, since you play land anyway and get the effect for free.
  3. Mistvein Borderpost, Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds mana fixing and 2 uses of the Hedron Crab.
  4. Reassembling Skeleton Goes from the graveyard to play, this is better than to hand other (pricier) cards have this effect too
  5. Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus Another way to exile the graveyard.

I need to have a think about more general comments, but the cards listed above are all worth having a look at...

Another option over Phytoburst is Grotesque Mutation, but you really don't want to use Phytoburst.

Ornithopter is evasive and drops from turn 1, meaning you can swing with two creatures on the attack next turn. I'd also suggest Signal Pest and Will-o'-the-Wisp.

Phytoburst is not a good choice, sorcery speed means you can't cast it during the combat phase. Predator's Strike could be a better option. Also Predator Ooze could be a nice fit.

More generally, you are virtually running an infect deck, in infect colours, without infect. Infect works because it only needs 10 damage (poison) but you still need to deliver the full 20 and cards like Pyroclasm exist...

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal. I'd recommend you swap Murder for Victim of Night, Terminate or maybe even Dreadbore. Goblin Wardriver can be pretty useful for adding a little extra damage too.

I have to say organising by colour rather than the default categories is not the most helpful way to look at a deck... I'd probably be more detailed if it was listed in standard form, however my first instinct is that a deck designed to flood the board having no 1 drops seems off...

#10

Celestial Purge costs 2, Duress or Thoughtseize cost 1. What makes the Leyline of Sanctity so effective is it can be on board before discard or burn can do anything about it. Personally I don't like any of the Leylines that much, since black or red have no way to interact with them...

Detention Sphere is a decent answer, Cryptic Command or Negate too. If no one in your area is running *-Rack then it is less of a concern, though the deck can be made fairly cheaply...

First off, Riddlekeeper isn't modern legal.

Next, if you are planning to use Mindcrank effectively you need to run 4. at the same time I'd suggest Altar of the Brood and Tome Scour and far fewer cards that cost 4 or more. When chatting about a mill deck previously I threw together an example list, you might find it helpful; Mind Mill note that even that list isn't optimal since it doesn't include Glimpse the Unthinkable...

#12

It's a sorcery but Rite of Consumption could be useful... Might be worth changing Smother for Fatal Push.

Elemental wise, Flamekin Bladewhirl seems like a decent 1 drop, I've always had a soft spot for Hellspark Elemental and Stigma Lasher...

April 23, 2017 6:28 p.m.

I'd suggest 4 copies of Spellbook, it's also worth knowing that this style of deck is an established archetype, normally using Retract or Hurkyl's Recall to combo alongside 0 cost artifacts (equipment mostly) which trigger draw effects on cards like Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer or Riddlesmith. I run a deck that does this myself (shameless plug Cheap & Cherio) and it works ok...

The issue I see with your deck is the setup time and the fact that 17 land, even allowing for cost reduction might not be enough. The "Cherios" (cheery 0) decks work because so many of the artifacts cost 0 to play, to reach the same scenario you need Semblance Anvil, which is an extra weakness.

April 23, 2017 11:34 a.m.

Cool deck, I have a similar one, though still run red. If you want to go the mill path I'd strongly suggest 2 cards; Altar of the Brood and Archive Trap.

If your curious what my deck looks like, see Cheap & Cherio, a stand out card in it is Dispatch... Though I think I might add Riddlesmith, I'd missed that one!

April 23, 2017 11:11 a.m.

Fury Charm, comes to mind... Also with the number of sorcery and instants you cast Bedlam Reveler might be a decent backup plan and re-stocks your hand.

Said on Devotion Mana Ramp...

#16

In Modern I'd be amazed if Prophet of Kruphix makes it into play, past discard or counter, if it does it eats a Lightning Bolt or Path to Exile, or some other removal. That isn't a reason not to play it, but you need to protect it if you are. Basically a card like Heroic Intervention or your own counterspell is the only way to protect the Prophet.

Courser of Kruphix, Voyaging Satyr and Utopia Sprawl are great for green based devotion and only one Nykthos seems wrong, especially since Voyaging Satyr can untap it. Even with the ramp you have, the deck is top heavy and too often your hands will be big threats and no ways to cast them...

You also need card draw, either using red Faithless Looting or green Carven Caryatid, Harmonize. Hope this helps.

#17

Your playing Modern, I'm not sure why you would run Tormenting Voice over Faithless Looting. Voice you always have to discard, it is a cost of the card even if countered. Looting gives you a potential 2nd cast if you need it...

Dark Withering could be a good sideboard card, as could Rain of Gore against lifegain and Pyroclasm against tokens.

April 23, 2017 7:01 a.m.

The Rack or Shrieking Affliction is a quicker play (though better for a long game) than Megrim, Necrogen Mists might be helpful to ensure a discard. Have you considered a madness sub-theme? Fiery Temper and Dark Withering are the cards that come to mind...

Also a mirror match, a match against 8-Rack or creatureless could go badly. Any deck packing enchantment hate in the sideboard will put it in game 2 as well and your enchantments are your wincons...

#19

Deck looks good, not sure how well it would perform against a mirror match or another creatureless deck like 8-Rack... I'd suggest you want something in your sideboard to grant you hexproof, Leyline of Sanctity or Aegis of the Gods are the first cards that come to mind.

April 23, 2017 6:26 a.m.

Tormod's Crypt for a mirror match might be handy too.
