Yeh I was just musing- Snapcaster Mage would be for a whole different flicker deck...

I wonder what a Snapcaster Mage flicker deck would look like...

Wow, interesting stuff. Hows it going so far? It looks a little all over the place but I like it. For me- I dont think the blue splash for the saint, 5 mainboard and 3 sideboard counterspells. If nahiri is staying in then you have access to red lightningbolt. Nuff said?
Angels are obviously vulnerable early so Id start making a deck solving that and seeing what fits. I dont think Geist if Saint really helps there (though if u had a bigger commitment to counter magic that might work...) but ur lingering souls does it pretty well (also while giving u that card value) so Gogo black white? To get your single red mana for nahiri (and lbolt) Id have 1-2 mountains and 4 evolving wilds (tack on another 3-4 swamps while were talking land).
Just to finish- I think theres three solid ways this deck could go- wg, wb(r) or wu but I think it does need to be more focused to be consistent.
Good luck! Let me know how u go!

Hi, Ive been playing against a similar deck. Id try for at least 20 land with ur 5 cmcs. 4x legions lieutenant and some removal- fatal push or Vraska's Contempt. Hope that helps.

Id overthought it. Pretty sure Duress is the sideboard answer... durr

So obvious answer is that they both fill different roles and a w vs w3 is problematic. So sure stop asking dumb questions...
Though I look a little closer; Path to Exile is possibly the most efficient removal in the game but with an enemy ramp cost. A white mana exiles a creature at instant speed. If I apply the same yardstick Ixalan's Binding removes possibly 4 permanents for w3 so taking into account sorcery speed that seems pretty comparable...? 1 for 1?
Also worth mentioning is that we dont use path often on any 1 or 2 drop creature like you might a bolt or a fpush so the time to play the spells is similar at t4+
This might make more sense looking at the context it comes from- Specifically this is for my Boros Brisela Midrange which has Lightning Bolt and Lightning HelixAnd so much lantern control that will flood our competitive meta this year. Sigh.
Im gonna test online with a 2 of each in the main board and get back to you.
Take it easy!
